New York, NY (PRWEB) April 24, 2009
A new art exhibition entitled "Regrets" is opening in New York for a limited run in May. The theme has captured the imagination of people worldwide with hundreds of visitors to the show's site listing their anonymous regrets in life -- from the deeply personal to the highly superficial.
As well as featuring regrets from the website, the exhibition captures the personal regrets of the artists through a variety of media including photography, poetry, short films, sculptures, audio and even a specially commissioned children's book (Rated R). The exhibition also features interactive artwork -- a stage of Regrets where visitors can overcome some of their regrets in life and a "Wall of Regrets" where visitors can list their own regrets at the show.
Regrets is a fun, sad, challenging, heartbreaking and highly unique exhibition - where guests can be both voyeuristic and introspective.
The show is free to the public and proceeds from all sales go to support two very important charities - You Can Thrive and Sense.
Regrets is open to the public for two days on the following dates:
May 13th 2009. 12pm - 5pm
May 14th 2009. 12pm - 5pm
The gallery is located in Tribeca on Broadway between Walker and White Street at: Chacala Art Gallery - 394 Broadway, 4th Fl, New York, NY 10013
More About Regrets:
"I regret not being myself. I hide myself. Always"
This is just one of the many regrets posted anonymously on the official website -- nickandrani.com. As soon as the theme of this exhibition was announced, one thing became apparent -- nearly everyone has regrets of some kind, but very few share them, with anyone. Until now.
As well as the unprecedented public feedback to the idea of Regrets, the artists have done a remarkable job in putting this exhibition together in their spare time in just two months. All of the works of art were produced in this timeframe. Once the show is over, a charity Regrets book will also be published that will capture all of the regrets listed both before and during the show.
