What is Tempera?

Tempera is a paint traditionally made with colored pigments and egg yolks. The paint dries quickly and lasts a very long time. Some examples still remain from 100 AD. Modern tempera paint uses glue size with the colored pigments instead of egg yolks.

Gutai

Gutai were the group of Japanese radical artists who formed the Gutai Art Association in 1954. The word gutai is translated to mean embodiment. They created art on the spot for audiences, including their own physical movements; throwing paint, piercing paper and rolling in mud.

East Village Art

In 1981 Patti Aster opened the first art gallery in East Village. She helped launch the careers of several various artists and musicians. It all started out as a small gallery, but began to gain popularity and pop up more frequently, and eventually making East Village the starting point for other art movements such as Neo-Expressionism and Street Art. The Gallery closed in 1985 due to loss of interest.

Interactive art

A form of art where the spectator is involved by the artist to achieve the art's purpose. This can be done by letting the visitor or observer "walk" around, in and on the art installation. Others may ask the spectator or the artist to become part and parcel of their artwork. Works in this category often feature computers, sensors and interfaces to respond to meteorological changes, heat, motion or other input types programmed by the maker to respond to by them.
