The Tribeca Show

curated by Carl Glassman and April Koral

The Tribeca Show looks at apexart's own neighborhood, bringing complexity and historical context to Tribeca's over-hyped, celebrity-infused public image. Curators April Koral and Carl Glassman are founders of The Tribeca Trib, a local paper that has been covering the neighborhood for 25 years. The show features work from photographers, journalists, and artists who have incorporated Tribeca in their work in highly divergent ways, along with historical images dating back to the Dutch.

Carl Glassman, Editor and Co-Founder of The Tribeca Trib, is a photographer whose work has been published and exhibited internationally. His photographs and photo essays for the Trib have received numerous awards, including a grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts. Photos from his book Soho, A Picture Portrait were shown at the OK Harris Gallery in New York and Photographers Gallery in London. Before launching the Trib, Glassman contributed to many publications, most regularly to The London Times and The Miami Herald. For 13 years, he was adjunct professor of photojournalism in NYU?s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.

April Koral is Publisher and Co-Founder of The Tribeca Trib. Before launching the paper in 1994, she was a freelance writer whose articles appeared in a variety of magazines and newspapers. She is also the author of six non-fiction books for young people and the editor and photo researcher of two books on Tribeca History published by the Trib: Tales of Old Tribeca, and Tribeca: A Pictorial History, both by Oliver E. Allen. Koral has written many articles for the Trib, specializing in stories about noteworthy but overlooked artists and other local residents.
