LEARN MORE ABOUT ARTWALK NY


ARTWALK NY
brings together hundreds of artists, art-lovers and other compassionate New Yorkers at this landmark event to celebrate the role of “artist-as-activist” and raise awareness about the issues of homelessness, poverty and social justice.

The Coalition for the Homeless provides emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and special programs for kids to over 3,500 New Yorkers each day. For more than three decades, we’ve been helping homeless men, women and children find their way to a safe, stable home.

Louise Fishman, Artist Honoree

Louise Fishman’s work celebrates process. In monumental, energetic surfaces of densely layered color and texture, her paintings exemplify a driven exploration of materials and mark-making.

Born in Philadelphia in 1939, Fishman was active in the feminist movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. During this time, she temporarily abandoned painting for sculptural and material investigations that pursued a more distinctly feminine art. Fishman’s return to painting was anticipated by her seminal 1973 “Angry Women” series, which represented important figures in the feminist movement. Her subsequent embrace of gestural abstraction unapologetically confronted the male-dominated history of artistic discourse. At a time when postmodernism claimed painting to be “dead,” Fishman’s decisive re-appropriation of Abstract Expressionism repositioned it for a different era and gender.

Fishman lives and works in New York City. Widely shown, her work is represented in many collections including: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; and the Jewish Museum, New York, among others. In 2016, Fishman was the subject of a retrospective exhibition curated by Helaine Posner at the Neuberger Museum of Art in Purchase, NY. The exhibition will travel to the Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, this fall. Accompanying the exhibitions is, Louise Fishman, published by DelMonico Books/Prestel. Concurrently on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia was an exhibition of Fishman’s small-scale work, curated by Ingrid Schaffner. Louise Fishman is represented by Cheim & Read, New York, where she is currently having an exhibition of recent work on view through October 28, 2017.

Vincent and Shelly Fremont, Philanthropic Honorees

New York City has long been a beacon of both the art world and the social justice community – innovating, creating and leading the way – and few people represent those two sides of NYC more vividly than Vincent and Shelly Fremont.

The Fremonts have played a truly unique and important role in our city over the years. Vincent began working for Andy Warhol shortly after arriving in New York back in the summer of 1969 and was at the world famous Factory for nearly twenty years, until Warhol’s death in February 1987. Vincent was the Vice-President of Andy Warhol Enterprises and the Executive Manager of the Andy Warhol studio. In the 1970s and 1980s, Vincent produced and developed video, television, and film projects, including Vivian’s Girls, Phoney, Fight, Fashion, Andy Warhol’s TV, and Andy Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes. Vincent was also one of the Founding Directors of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc., and was closely involved in establishing the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.

Shelly attended Parsons School of Design, after which she worked as an art director for, among others, Estée Lauder, Avon Products and Fashion of the Times magazine. Shelly has had a long association with the art world, not only as an artist’s representative, but also writing gallery reviews for the weekly downtown newspaper 7 Days and serving as a director at the A/D Gallery.

In 2000, Vincent and Shelly co-directed and co-produced an award-winning documentary entitled PIE IN THE SKY: THE BRIGID BERLIN STORY, which chronicles the life of Warhol Superstar, Brigid Berlin. Currently, the Fremonts are working on a variety of projects in the art and entertainment fields.

Vincent and Shelly have been committed supporters of the Coalition for the Homeless for more than two decades. They have long been a guiding force behind ARTWALK, and served as co-chairs of the Art Advisory Board from its inception up until 2015. Together with their daughters Casey and Austin, the Fremonts have helped raise millions of dollars in support for, and wide awareness of, the important work of the Coalition for the Homeless. Their generosity and compassion have impacted the lives of countless homeless men, women and children in our city.
