WALKTHROUGH WITH ARTISTS ANNA ROSEN & DAVID ROESING @ Page (NYC), 368 Broadway, #511

Stop by Page(NYC) from 6:00-8:00PM to meet and walkthrough the exhibition with the artists, Anna Rosen and David Roesing. RSVP here!

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Cellular candles melted in a radiation whirlpool, what to make of Godzilla? In Japan, he was a karmic horror, a pulpy refraction of the terrible history of man. Early producer Shogo Tomiyama points upwards: “he…totally destroys everything and then there is a rebirth. Something new and fresh can begin."

But would that fly in America? Tri-Star Pictures wasn’t sure; for their 1998 American iteration, they jettisoned all history, and adapted. The creature was naturalized; a fast moving lizard, more animal than monster, hiding their asexual eggs all over New York City.

For the part of “Nick”, the radiation specialist who eludes Godzilla in a series of taxis, Tri-Star tapped Matthew Broderick, of course. Broderick exudes a grounding awareness—drawing on his Reagan era flaneur, Ferris, who famously toured Chicago, guided only by his unholy sense of truancy and boner for automobiles.

Denying the fourth wall, he sees us, and his place in the social ecology. As the lead character of his next movie, Inspector Gadget says, “Any system of rules will grow, and develop a capacity for self-reference, a level-crossing feedback loop, a consciousness.”

Rote Braid features three pairs of works by Anna Rosen and David Roesing. Two by Anna, two by David, and two made jointly. The set explores the pair’s interest in patterned excess, tasteless decoration and low culture reanimated as high metaphysics, and repressed mystery.

OPEN STUDIOS @ White Street Studios, 50 White St.

6:00 PM18:00

OPEN STUDIOS @ White Street Studios, 50 White St.

For one night only, the artists at White Street Studios will share with the public their creative processes and new works. Participating artists include: Regina Silvers, Edward Love, Erin Ko, Michael P. Jenkins, Andrew Tomasulo, Janine Shelffo and Beatrice Glow. RSVP here

The White Street Studio has been providing working space for artists since 1990, when Regina Silvers and two colleagues rented this basement space at 50 White St and soon realized they needed more studio mates to share the costs. Managed by Regina Silvers, the space continues to function, and is currently shared by 8 diverse artists. “It’s been a great space: a basement with windows! – and a communal area, as well as fairly private working studios for each artist. It’s good to have privacy and then someone else around when you want a little interchange. And we all respect each other’s need to have a calm place to work. A lot has changed in TriBeCa in the past 27 years, and I’m so glad this hasn’t“ says Silvers. “We were the central meeting place for starting and running ToAST, the Tribeca Open Artist Studio Tour, for its first 10 years, and are now happy to participate in TAC Night.” 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Regina Silvers
has been involved with fine art for her whole adult life, as a teacher, curator, art consultant, museum public relations manager; founder and President of TOAST, the TriBeCa Open Artist Studio Tour; founder and Director of the Gallery at Hastings-on-Hudson, and always, practicing artist.Silvers draws and paints. The focus of her work changes with her life. Nature-based paintings grew out of years of walking on trails and sitting in streams. City views derived from looking from her balcony. Political/activist paintings are a visual diary of her participation in democracy. The Jazz series results from listening and drawing at Jam Sessions. Her experience is the common thread. www.ReginaSilvers.com| Instagram @regisilvers2

A minimalist dance that utilizes Jenga blocks as an interactive object. Through the dance the artist seeks to convey her experience as a foreign artist who relocated to New York City.

ABOUT ROUROU YE
Born and raised in China, Rourou Ye is a female choreographer, dancer and filmmaker. She practiced Chinese Dance for 15 years before she began concentrating on contemporary art and choreography.

Rou is strongly inspired by visual images, and her filmic sensibility is highlighted in her choreographic approach. Her current choreography focuses on the subject of feminism, which includes exploring female sexuality, individual identity, and disordered psychology in the capitalized, commoditized, patriarchal society. Ultimately, her goal is to create works that provide her audience with new perspectives on life that are not regular and mundane. She enjoys incorporating other art mediums into her work to enrich her dance expressions as she seeks to change the way of viewing live performances. Her work has been shown at Dixon Place, Gibney Dance, Sarah Lawrence College, Hudson River Museum, Murmur Gallery, China Dance Forward (Hong Kong), Shanghai Conservatory of Music, Shanghai Concert Hall, Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center, Beijing Dance Festival, and Minsheng Art Museum.

WALKTHROUGH WITH CURATOR KIM POWER AND MELANIE VOTE @ Shirley Fiterman Art Center, 81 Barclay St.
Jun

6:30 PM18:30

WALKTHROUGH WITH CURATOR KIM POWER AND MELANIE VOTE @ Shirley Fiterman Art Center, 81 Barclay St.

Join us at Shirley Fiterman Art Center on June 21 to walkthrough their current exhibition, Natural Proclivities, with the curators Kim Power and Melanie Vote. RSVP here

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Natural Proclivities examines the relationship between humans and nature, both our responsibility and response to it, how we transform it and how it transforms us. Nature inspires the creative impulse, showing all the wonders of the cyclical process of life and death from growth to decay, and returns us to the elemental forces of our own existence. Co-curators Kim Power and Melanie Vote have invited thirty-one artists working in the mediums of paint, photography, thread, and mixed media, to stand as a representation of the synthesis of environment and materiality through their own individual creative expressions. 

The interconnectedness of Homo sapiens and the natural world we live in and on, our planet, is in crises. The epoch of the Anthropocene is upon us. The artworks included in Natural Proclivities portray a cross section of nature’s acts of creation and destruction, the fecund proliferation of life, and the abject road to extinction. Through quiet visions and complex creations of both macro and micro images of natural beauty and the poetry of primal, elemental existence, this exhibition presents a visual dialogue that aspires to stimulate awareness and create empathy towards our natural environment.

WALKTHROUGH WITH ARTISTS @ Hercules Art Studio, 25 Park Pl.

Join us at Hercules Art Studio on June 21 to walkthrough the show with some of their exhibited artists. RSVP here

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
Asterisms is a collaborative exhibition by the artists of Sprechgesang Institute. A continuation of their experimental lecture series, the show is an active research site for hybridizations of categorical knowledge; a visual essay mapping out unexpected connections; a break from normalized interpretations of experience.  

Organized by: Christopher Lin and Sarah K Williams

Artists: Thalia Beaty, Katie Bell, Sara Clugage, Christopher Lin, Daniel Mantilla, Clare Monfredo, François Sarhan, N Andrew Walsh, Alisha Wessler, Ashley Eliza Williams, and Sarah K Williams.

PRESENTED BY:
Sprechgesang Institute (S.I.) is a research-based platform for artists working in an in-between language of two or more disciplines. We believe in the ability of the gap between genres to produce fresh and innovative perspectives, offering room to breathe without boundaries, space to improvise and to question conventions. We host regular lectures, workshops, and dinners to draw connections and facilitate discussion of in-between languages. 

Sprechgesang refers to a vocal technique halfway between song and spoken word. Sprechgesang is what occurs when actions are too grand to merely talk about but too fragile to sing; when the heart moves faster than the mouth and pitched syllables are more descriptive than words. Expanding the definition beyond the voice, sprechgesang more generally describes a search for a new mode of hybrid-communication in the space between two disciplines or techniques. This concept makes up the root system of S.I.

ABOUT DAVID KING REUBEN

London born, New York based David King Reuben is a multimedia artist. When he first came to the city he gained prominence almost immediately in the underground art world, and is known for his expressive portraits and tableaus. In an empty warehouse space on Berry Street in Williamsburg (dubbed “The Madhouse”), Reuben and his cohorts threw a bacchanal every night of the week, resulting in hundreds of paintings, music and wild improvised DIY shows. “We used to keep the door open, because what was anyone going to steal—a painting or a song?” Reuben says. 
David keeps the “madhouse” spirit but has gone from shows in his garage to the most anticipated exhibitions in the city. From Art basel in Miami, to the Frieze Art Fair in London, his works continue to inspire conversation and veneration. Davids infectious spirit possesses everything that he works on, making each piece gleam with a distinctive kind of magic.

Meet the Artists: HEATHER ANNE HALPERT & ANASTASIA KOLAS @ Lubov | 373 Broadway, Suite 207
Mar

6:00 PM18:00

Meet the Artists: HEATHER ANNE HALPERT & ANASTASIA KOLAS @ Lubov | 373 Broadway, Suite 207

Would you like to meet and chat with the artists about their work? Join us for an artists' talk at Lubov with two of the artists on view, Heather Anne Halpert & Anastasia Kolas. They will be discussing where their inspirations come from, and how it translates into their work.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Inset brings together three independent works by Heather Anne Halpert, Ruth Höflich and Anastasia Kolas, each tuning to the malleability of a produced environment. Awareness tracks with a delay, while the senses are ordered, solidified by unseen forces into habits of subtle leveling and filtering, on repeat. 
Peripheral, embedded, glimpse at a glance: Inset is a lopsided diptych in a room, video wraparound as sculpture dressed up to audition for a play in three parts. The play bill promises a dramatic reenactment of pre-set, side-effect and agency. Roger Caillois describes dissymmetry as the accidental cut or break in an established symmetry. It is by definition transient, a moment of change into something new. Strung together across two channels, the video works invite the viewers to revisit their daily entanglement within the visual and sensory flow.
