Jacek Tylicki is a Polish artist who settled in New York City in 1982. Tylicki works in the field of land art, installation art, site-specific art, his conceptual projects raise social and environmental issues. Starting in 1973, Tylicki began sending sheets of canvas or paper into the wind, rivers, or forests and leaving them for a long while in a natural environment, thus forcing upon nature an attitude reserved to the artist: the creation of forms; the project is called natural art. In the years 1974–1990, he initiated the idea of an anonymous artist by issuing a periodical called Anonymous Artists where artists could present their art without revealing their own names. In 1985 he created. Tylicki transformed the Now Gallery in Manhattan to a hen house in which live chickens watched realistic paintings of chickens and roosters hanging on the gallery walls. Tylicki declared: For a chicken the most beautiful is chicken. Another installation was the Free Art, where Tylicki invited well-known artists, including Mark Kostabi and Rodney Greenblat, to give away their art to the public for free.
Video and photography play an important role in his work as a record of its elusiveness and transience. 2016 – Land Art Mongolia Bienalle, Gobi desert, Mongolia 2015 – Mananchira, India 2014 – Phillips, London 2014 – Bonhams, London 2013 – Museum of Contemporary Art in Kraków, Poland 2012 – Dublin Biennial, Ireland 2012 – Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Poland 2012 – Natural Art Book, Brookyn Art Library 2011 – Welcome to My Park in Your Park, Land Art Festiwal, Poland 2002 – SFINKS, Sopot Poland 1995 – U Gallery, New York, NY 1994 – Akademie Der Kunste, Germany 1993 – Foundation SFINKS, Sopot Poland 1988 – Limelight, New York, NY 1987 – Free Art, Now Gallery, New York, NY 1987 – Binghamton University Gallery, Binghamton, NY 1986 – Attack, Fashion Moda Gallery, New York, NY 1986 – Fusion Gallery, New York, NY 1986 – Artifacts Gallery, Miami, FL 1986 – No-Se-No Gallery, New York, NY 1986 – Sculpture Garden, New York, NY 1985 – Chicken Art, Now Gallery, New York, NY 1985 – 8BC Gallery, New York, NY 1985 – Nite Gallery, New York, NY 1984 – Now Gallery, New York, NY 1984 – Avenue B Gallery, New York, NY 1982 – Club 57, New York, NY 1982 – ARTEDER International, Spain 1981 – New Avantgarde, BWA, Poland 1980 – Galerie Kanal 2, Denmark 1980 – Galeria BWA, Poland 1980 – Experimental Environment II, Living Art Museum, Iceland 1980 – Galerie Sudurgata 7, Iceland 1979 – Gallery 38, Denmark 1979 – Galeria Sien Gdanska, Poland 1979 – Galerie St. Petri, Sweden 1979 – Galeria Akumulatory 2, Poland 1979 – Galerie Sudurgata 7, Iceland 1979 – EXEN, Denmark 1979 – Nordic Experimental Art Festival, Iceland 1977 – Galerie Brass, Sweden 1976 – Gallerie Porten, Sweden 1976 – BTJ Gallery, Sweden 1976 – Galeriet, Sweden Leszek Brogowski, "Jacek Tylicki and a new ethos of art", Project magazine, Poland, 202-203/1995 p. 41-53 Les Krantz, The New York Art Review, 1988, p. 1218-1229 Now Gallery, Artforum 03-1985.

Street art is visual art created in public locations unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art venues. Other terms for this type of art include "independent public art", "post-graffiti", "neo-graffiti", is related with guerrilla art. Common forms and media include spray paint graffiti, stencil graffiti, wheatpasted poster art, sticker art, street installations, sculpture. Video projection and yarn bombing have gained some popularity near the turn of the 21st century. Street art is a form of artwork, displayed in a community on its surrounding buildings, streets and other publicly viewed surfaces. Many instances come in the form of guerrilla art, composed to make a public statement about the society that the artist lives within; the work has moved from the beginnings of graffiti and vandalism to new modes where artists work to bring messages, or just simple beauty, to an audience. Some artists use "smart vandalism" as a way to raise awareness of political issues. Others see urban space as an untapped format for personal artwork, while others may appreciate the challenges and risks that are associated with installing illicit artwork in public places.
A common motive is that creating art in a format which utilizes public space allows artists who may otherwise feel disenfranchised to reach a much broader audience than other styles or galleries would allow. Whereas traditional graffiti artists have used spray paint to produce their work, "street art" encompasses many other media, such as LED art, mosaic tiling, stencil art, sticker art, reverse graffiti, "Lock On" sculptures, street installations, woodblocking, yarn bombing, rock balancing. New media forms such as projection onto large city buildings are an popular tool for street artists—and the availability of cheap hardware and software allows street artists to become more competitive with corporate advertisements. Much like open source software, artists are able to create art for the public realm from their personal computers creating things for free which compete with companies making things for profit; some observers use the term "independent public art" to describe a type of street art, which can include work in remote places that may not be visited by an audience, may be short-lived.
An ephemeral instance of colored smoke in the forest, or a precarious rock balance are examples. Some work has been installed underwater. Slogans of protest and political or social commentary graffitied onto public walls are the precursor to modern graffiti and street art, continue as one aspect of the genre. Street art in the form of text or simple iconic graphics in the vein of corporate icons become well-known yet enigmatic symbols of an area or an era; some credit the Kilroy Was Here graffiti of the World War II era as one such early example. Author Charles Panati indirectly touched upon the general appeal of street art in his description of the "Kilroy" graffiti as "outrageous not for what it said, but where it turned up". Much of what can now be defined as modern street art has well-documented origins dating from New York City's graffiti boom, with its infancy in the 1960s, maturation in the 1970s, peaking with the spray-painted full-car subway train murals of the 1980s centered in the Bronx.
As the 1980s progressed, a shift occurred from text-based works of early in the decade to visually conceptual street art such as Hambleton's shadow figures. This period coincides with Keith Haring's subway advertisement subversions and Jean-Michel Basquiat's SAMO tags. What is now recognized as "street art" had yet to become a realistic career consideration, offshoots such as stencil graffiti were in their infancy. Wheatpasted poster art used to promote bands and the clubs where they performed evolved into actual artwork or copy-art and became a common sight during the 1980s in cities worldwide; the group working collectively as AVANT were active in New York during this period. Punk rock music's subversive ideologies were instrumental to street art's evolution as an art form during the 1980s; some of the anti-museum mentality can be attributed to the ideology of Marinetti who in 1909 wrote the "Manifesto of Futurism" with a quote that reads, "we will destroy all the museums." Many street artists claim we do not live in a museum so art should be in public places with no tickets.
The northwest wall of the intersection at Houston Street and the Bowery in New York City has been a target of artists since the 1970s. The site, now sometimes referred to as the Bowery Mural, originated as a derelict wall which graffiti artists used freely. Keith Haring once commandeered the wall for his own use in 1982. After Haring, a stream of well-known street artists followed, until the wall had taken on prestigious status. By 2008, the wall became managed and made available to artists by commission or invitation only. A series of murals by René Moncada began appearing on the streets of SoHo in the late 1970s emblazoned with the words I AM THE BEST ARTIST. René has described the murals as a thumb in the nose to the art community he felt he'd helped pioneer but by which he felt ignored by. Recognized as an early act of "art provocation", they were a topic of conversation and debate at the time, related legal conflicts raised discussion about intellectual property, artist's rights, the First Amendment.
The ubiquitous murals became a popular backdrop to photographs taken by tourists and art students, for advertising layouts and Hollywood films. IATBA murals were defaced, only to be repainted by René; some street artists have earned international attention for their work and have
Artforum is an international monthly magazine specializing in contemporary art. The magazine is published ten times a year, September through May, along with an annual summer issue. Distinguished by its 10½ inch square format, with each cover devoted to the work of a single artist, the magazine is acknowledged as a decisive voice in its field; the magazine features in-depth articles and reviews of contemporary art, as well as book reviews, columns on cinema and popular culture, numerous full-page advertisements from prominent galleries around the world. Artforum was founded in 1962 in San Francisco by Jr.. The next publisher/owner Charles Cowles moved the magazine to Los Angeles in 1965 before settling it in New York City in 1967, where it maintains offices today; the move to New York encompassed a shift in the style of work championed by the magazine, moving away from California style art to late modernism the leading style of art in New York City. The departure of Philip Leider as editor-in-chief in 1971 and the tenure of John Coplans as the new editor-in-chief coincided with a shift towards more fashionable trends and away from late modernism.
A focus on minimal art, conceptual art, body art, land art and performance art provided a platform for artists such as Robert Smithson, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt and others. In 1980, after opening his own gallery in New York City, Charles Cowles divested himself of the magazine. A sister magazine, was started in 1994. In October 2017, publisher Knight Landesman resigned in the wake of allegations of sexual misconduct with nine women including a former employee who filed a lawsuit. Artforum backed Landesman, saying the allegations were "unfounded" and suggested that lawsuit was “an attempt to exploit a relationship that she herself worked hard to create and maintain.” The magazine's editor Michelle Kuo resigned in response to the publishers' handling of the allegations. Artforum staff released a statement condemning the way. A book by Amy Newman chronicling the early history of the magazine, Challenging Art: Artforum 1962–1974, was published by Soho Press in 2000. Sarah Thornton's documentary book Seven Days in the Art World contains a chapter titled "The Magazine", set in the offices of Artforum.
In it, Thornton says, "Artforum is to art what Vogue is to fashion and Rolling Stone was to rock and roll. It’s a trade magazine with crossover cachet and an institution with controversial clout."

An art museum or art gallery is a building or space for the display of art from the museum's own collection. It might be in public or private ownership and may be accessible to all or have restrictions in place. Although concerned with visual art, art galleries are used as a venue for other cultural exchanges and artistic activities, such as performance arts, music concerts, or poetry readings. Art museums frequently host themed temporary exhibitions which include items on loan from other collections. In distinction to a commercial art gallery, run by an art dealer, the primary purpose of an art museum is not the sale of the items on show. Throughout history and expensive works of art have been commissioned by religious institutions and monarchs and been displayed in temples and palaces. Although these collections of art were private, they were made available for viewing for a portion of the public. In classical times, religious institutions began to function as an early form of art gallery. Wealthy Roman collectors of engraved gems and other precious objects donated their collections to temples.
It is unclear. In Europe, from the Late Medieval period onwards, areas in royal palaces and large country houses of the social elite were made accessible to sections of the public, where art collections could be viewed. At the Palace of Versailles, entrance was restricted to people wearing the proper apparel – the appropriate accessories could be hired from shops outside; the treasuries of cathedrals and large churches, or parts of them, were set out for public display. Many of the grander English country houses could be toured by the respectable for a tip to the housekeeper, during the long periods when the family were not in residence. Special arrangements were made to allow the public to see many royal or private collections placed in galleries, as with most of the paintings of the Orleans Collection, which were housed in a wing of the Palais-Royal in Paris and could be visited for most of the 18th century. In Italy, the art tourism of the Grand Tour became a major industry from the 18th century onwards, cities made efforts to make their key works accessible.
The Capitoline Museums began in 1471 with a donation of classical sculpture to the city of Rome by the Papacy, while the Vatican Museums, whose collections are still owned by the Pope, trace their foundation to 1506, when the discovered Laocoön and His Sons was put on public display. A series of museums on different subjects were opened over subsequent centuries, many of the buildings of the Vatican were purpose-built as galleries. An early royal treasury opened to the public was the Grünes Gewölbe of the Kingdom of Saxony in the 1720s. Established museums open to the public began to be established from the 17th century onwards based around a collection of the cabinet of curiosities type; the first such museum was the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, opened in 1683 to house and display the artefacts of Elias Ashmole that were given to Oxford University in a bequest. In the second half of the eighteenth century, many private collections of art were opened to the public, during and after the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars many royal collections were nationalized where the monarchy remained in place, as in Spain and Bavaria.
In 1753, the British Museum was established and the Old Royal Library collection of manuscripts was donated to it for public viewing. In 1777, a proposal to the British government was put forward by MP John Wilkes to buy the art collection of the late Sir Robert Walpole who had amassed one of the greatest such collections in Europe, house it in a specially built wing of the British Museum for public viewing. After much debate, the idea was abandoned due to the great expense, twenty years the collection was bought by Tsaritsa Catherine the Great of Russia and housed in the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg; the Bavarian royal collection was opened to the public in 1779 and the Medici collection in Florence around 1789. The opening of the Musée du Louvre during the French Revolution in 1793 as a public museum for much of the former French royal collection marked an important stage in the development of public access to art by transferring the ownership to a republican state; the building now occupied by the Prado in Madrid was built before the French Revolution for the public display of parts of the royal art collection, similar royal galleries were opened to the public in Vienna and other capitals.
In Great Britain, the corresponding Royal Collection remained in the private hands of the monarch and the first purpose-built national art galleries were the Dulwich Picture Gallery, founded in 1814 and the National Gallery opened to the public a decade in 1824. University art museums and galleries constitute collections of art developed and maintained by all kinds of schools, community colleges and universities; this phenomenon exists in the East, making it a global practice. Although overlooked, there are over 700 university art museums in the US alone; this number, compared to other kinds of art museums, makes university art museums the largest category of art museums in the country. While the first of these collections can be traced to learning collections developed in art academies in Western Europe, they are now associated with and housed in centers of higher education of all types; the word gallery being an archite
New York City
The City of New York called either New York City or New York, is the most populous city in the United States. With an estimated 2017 population of 8,622,698 distributed over a land area of about 302.6 square miles, New York is the most densely populated major city in the United States. Located at the southern tip of the state of New York, the city is the center of the New York metropolitan area, the largest metropolitan area in the world by urban landmass and one of the world's most populous megacities, with an estimated 20,320,876 people in its 2017 Metropolitan Statistical Area and 23,876,155 residents in its Combined Statistical Area. A global power city, New York City has been described as the cultural and media capital of the world, exerts a significant impact upon commerce, research, education, tourism, art and sports; the city's fast pace has inspired the term New York minute. Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is an important center for international diplomacy.
Situated on one of the world's largest natural harbors, New York City consists of five boroughs, each of, a separate county of the State of New York. The five boroughs – Brooklyn, Manhattan, The Bronx, Staten Island – were consolidated into a single city in 1898; the city and its metropolitan area constitute the premier gateway for legal immigration to the United States. As many as 800 languages are spoken in New York, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. New York City is home to more than 3.2 million residents born outside the United States, the largest foreign-born population of any city in the world. In 2017, the New York metropolitan area produced a gross metropolitan product of US$1.73 trillion. If greater New York City were a sovereign state, it would have the 12th highest GDP in the world. New York is home to the highest number of billionaires of any city in the world. New York City traces its origins to a trading post founded by colonists from the Dutch Republic in 1624 on Lower Manhattan.
The city and its surroundings came under English control in 1664 and were renamed New York after King Charles II of England granted the lands to his brother, the Duke of York. New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790, it has been the country's largest city since 1790. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to the U. S. by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is an international symbol of the U. S. and its ideals of liberty and peace. In the 21st century, New York has emerged as a global node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance, environmental sustainability, as a symbol of freedom and cultural diversity. Many districts and landmarks in New York City are well known, with the city having three of the world's ten most visited tourist attractions in 2013 and receiving a record 62.8 million tourists in 2017. Several sources have ranked New York the most photographed city in the world. Times Square, iconic as the world's "heart" and its "Crossroads", is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway Theater District, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, a major center of the world's entertainment industry.
The names of many of the city's landmarks and parks are known around the world. Manhattan's real estate market is among the most expensive in the world. New York is home to the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia, with multiple signature Chinatowns developing across the city. Providing continuous 24/7 service, the New York City Subway is the largest single-operator rapid transit system worldwide, with 472 rail stations. Over 120 colleges and universities are located in New York City, including Columbia University, New York University, Rockefeller University, which have been ranked among the top universities in the world. Anchored by Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world, the city is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization, the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. In 1664, the city was named in honor of the Duke of York.
James's older brother, King Charles II, had appointed the Duke proprietor of the former territory of New Netherland, including the city of New Amsterdam, which England had seized from the Dutch. During the Wisconsinan glaciation, 75,000 to 11,000 years ago, the New York City region was situated at the edge of a large ice sheet over 1,000 feet in depth; the erosive forward movement of the ice contributed to the separation of what is now Long Island and Staten Island. That action left bedrock at a shallow depth, providing a solid foundation for most of Manhattan's skyscrapers. In the precolonial era, the area of present-day New York City was inhabited by Algonquian Native Americans, including the Lenape, whose homeland, known as Lenapehoking, included Staten Island; the first documented visit into New York Harbor by a European was in 1524 by Giovanni da Verrazzano, a Florentine explorer in the service of the French crown. He named it Nouvelle Angoulême. A Spanish expedition led by captain Estêvão Gomes, a Portuguese sailing for Emperor Charles V, arrived in New York Harbor in January 1525 and charted the mouth of the Hudson River, which he named Río de San Antonio.
