Listen or read the newest I ART New York episode featuring Jason Clay Lewis from the series “Humanizing role of arts in the wake of the public health crisis”
Part II of a special series in which I ART New York invites three previously interviewed guests to respond to the COVID 19 pandemic. The series brings to fore the inherent resistance and constructive strategies created by artists and curators in the face of difficult and chaotic realities.
Jason Clay Lewis is an artist, curator, and Director of The Royal @ RSOAA (gallery) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York. Lewis discusses The Royal gallery's online summer exhibitions, their recently launched online artist-registry, and his artist Interview project begun last year. We also delve into his art practice and discuss his recent paintings as well as his reaction to the Covid-19 lockdown in New York City. Check out The Royal's latest exhibition "REMAKE / REMODEL", co-curated with Amelia Biewald.
