TEDX TALK / ART EXHIBIT : “IN FRONT OF YOU” TEDXNAVESINK, MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY
On April 11th, 2015, New York Natives’ own curator of the monthly series Artbeat, Camilla Webster, will be speaking and presenting her work at TEDxNavesink Accelerators at Monmouth University in New Jersey. The conference will explore how ‘accelerators’ create gamechanging innovation and cutting edge thought. Webster will speak on the role ART can play as we speed up and slow down in New York City, living simultaneously in a digital and physical space. Her photos and paintings, highlighting the power of art in an urban environment, will be featured in an extensive exhibit called “In Front of You.” She has also created a special painting for the conference called ‘Accelerator.’
Camilla Webster is on a mission to highlight the art in front of us in New York City. In an exhibit of photos of the five boroughs, TEDxNavesink subscribers are invited to decelerate: to experience the city with a fresh perspective. Webster’s photos ask us to stop and attend; to engage in the practice of seeing by looking up, down, around and in front of us.
