Walls at Artseen Exhibition highlights the work of six New World School of the Arts visual students during the Art Basel Miami Beach international fair, in a unique show where inside structures become blank canvasses for each of the artists. Charged with the task of incorporating the actual walls of the gallery into their work of art, each artist will utilize their allocated space to execute their work. “I wanted the students to conceptualize a subject meaningful to them,” said Maggy Cuesta, dean of visual arts at NWSA. “When we first met to brainstorm about the project, they all displayed strong feelings about different and unique topics – issues that resonate in some passionate way with each one of them. The operative word was “emotions” and the challenge lies in using bare structural space to illustrate this concept in a meaningful way to shape their work and propel their ideas.”
