800 5th Avenue
Aluminyze presents the abstractly expressionistic ENLIGHTEN and the portrait-based INTERCULTURAL exhibits produced and curated by Artist Muse.
In collaboration with musicians The Crystal Method and Nelly Furtado artist Sheinina Raj will use both her story and her body to express powerful personal and engagingly universal messages of peace, acceptance, and beauty. Everything Raj does in her photography-based practice is undertaken in a singular spirit of progressive humanism. In the images on display, audiences will have the opportunity to observe the artist more deeply, and inevitably come to see themselves as well.
The featured collections can only be experienced exclusively through AluminyzeSound – a new smart soundtechnology system that allows omnidirectional Sound Art to resonate from Alumininyze HD Aluminum prints that double as superior speakers with DML technology. Sound waves vibrate through the prints surface to produce an immersive sound experience.
The addition of music to the artwork provides an entry point into the work and its meaning, deepening the sense of connection to the audience and magnifying the magic of what art can already do.
