Fourteen floors of new paintings, prints, photographs and works-on-paper by emerging New York City artists using landscape as a conceptual element in their work.

The title, Stand Here and Listen, plays off the phenomenon of ‘viewing spots’ that occur in popular tourist destinations: exact spots, labeled with signs, where visitors are encouraged to stand and look. In a similar way, the selected artwork allows viewers to stand and look, inviting visual exploration; however, the activity and composition of each work embodies thought, motion and sound, as much as sight.
