New York at Dawn: Photographs by Raymond Adams

Opening: March 9, 7-9 pm

In New York at Dawn, Brooklyn artist Raymond Adams addresses the changing landscape of New York through his photographic lens, exploring and documenting how the Metropolis’ new architecture is redefining the shape of the city.

For the past 2 years, Adams has been venturing throughout Gotham at sunrise to capture these new vistas. His insights into how the dynamic shapes of this architecture, sprouting up amidst the historic buildings which have defined New York since the early 1900s, hint at a new definition of the city’s distinct skyline.

In Adams’ first solo New York exhibition, his colorful series of 30” x 40” large prints create a vivid panorama of an imaginary skyline along a 36-foot wall in the Greenwich House Music School’s Renee Weiler Concert Hall. The installation coincides with the presentation of the 25th season of the North River Music Festival featuring solo performances by JD Parran, Joan La Barbara, Jenny Lin and Morton Subotnick.

Menon Dwarka, Director of the Greenwich House Music School and curator of the 25th season of the North River Music concerts series, notes, “We are excited to welcome Raymond Adams and his contemporary view of New York to Greenwich House. His art is a great backdrop for our concert series that celebrates the importance of contemporary music in Greenwich Village.”
