ABOUT THE EXHIBIT | Reimagining the journeys of found objects from daily life is a central theme of Michal Nachmany’s art.
In Three Balconies and a Door, her new exhibition at the Manny Cantor Center, mixed media art pieces are intertwined between three balconies, each representing one of the distinctive Lower East Side communities.
ABOUT THE ARTIST | Michal Nachmany is an artist and educator based in New York City. Born in Jerusalem in 1958, Nachmany moved to New York in the 1980s. Her work juxtaposes themes
of personal and cultural narrative, nostalgia, and repetition using memorabilia, legal contracts, letters, photo albums and other found objects. Her work brings together different elements that open up dialogues between communities of objects, giving them new life and new context. Her exhibitions become a place where the community can come together to connect with art, objects, and each other.
