Charles Atlas, The Illusion of Democracy
Luhring Augustine's inaugural exhibition features "The Illusion of Democracy" by Charles Atlas, the famed director and video artist. Atlas is perhaps known as a pioneer of cinedance, filmography that uses movement instead of words to tell a story, and his newest showing will include two video installations never before seen in New York, Painting by Numbers, 2008 and Plato’s Alley, 2009. Atlas will also exhibit a new large-scale video work made specifically for this exhibition.
Through May 20 at Luhring Augustine (Bushwick), 25 Knickerbocker Avenue, Brooklyn. For more information, go HERE.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
