“The Grey Area” is the new blog of The Grey Art Gallery, New York University’s fine-arts museum. The blog features thoughtful commentary on exhibitions and art-related events in New York City and around the world, and serves as an online forum for students, scholars, museum-goers, and other appreciators of the arts. A majority of the posts featured on “The Grey Area” are written by NYU students. Some of the posts have focused on exhibitions at the Grey, like entries on Art/Memory/Place, the current exhibition commemorating the centennial anniversary of the Triangle shirtwaist factory fire. Other entries have explored art events outside NYU, such as Peter Greenaway’s Leonardo’s Last Supper at the Park Avenue Armory in December and Will Ryman’s current site-specific sculpture The Roses, also on Park Avenue. Like the Grey Art Gallery itself, “The Grey Area” aims to explore art in a wide variety of contexts and promote an informative and engaging dialogue among members of the NYU community and beyond.
