This year’s Fair will gather over 40 exhibitors from around the US, Europe, and South Africa showing their latest publications at The Tunnel in New York’s Chelsea. The Fair will take place November 3 – 6 during New York’s Print Week, to coincide with IFPDA’s Print Fair, and dozens of special exhibitions, talks, and workshops throughout the city.
Editions / Artists’ Book Fair (E/AB Fair) has been New York’s premier showcase for the discovery of new and contemporary prints, multiples, and artists’ books. Renowned for its cultivation of an international community of publishers, E/AB Fair provides a platform for their growth in the art market. Each year the Fair presents a thoughtfully curated exhibition of works by hundreds of emerging and established artists and an informative program of artist talks.
Founded in 1998 by Susan Inglett of I.C. Editions, in partnership with Brooke Alexander Editions and Printed Matter, the Fair is now presented by the Lower East Side Printshop, a non-profit organization. E/AB Fair provides free admission in order to introduce broader public to contemporary prints, multiples and artists books.

Ce texte est repris d'une note du Codes.
Depuis une vingtaine d’années, émerge et se développe au sein de la société civile un mouvement affirmant une autre manière de consommer, d’épargner, de travailler et d’entreprendre. Ce mouvement, individuel et collectif, se manifeste aussi bien en France qu’à l’étranger. Il s’inscrit dans une longue tradition humaniste visant à remettre l’homme et son épanouissement au cœur du développement socio-économique.,,....

The New York Times Feminist Reading Group..@ the WHitney this coming Saturday

http://whitney.org/Events/NYTFeministReadingGroup

THE NEW YORK 

TIMES 

FEMINIST 

READING

 GROUP

SAT, NOV 5, 2016  

1–2:30 PM


Location: Floor Three, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center,
Hearst Artspace
On the occasion of the historic 2016 U.S. presidential election,
artists Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden perform their ongoing project
The New York Times Feminist Reading Group, which is dedicated
 to reading the day’s issue of The New York Times from a feminist perspective.

The New York Times Feminist Reading Group combines different
models of feminist gatherings, including consciousness-raising
groups of the 1960s and 70s activism, academic seminar formats,
and socially-oriented book-clubs most often convened in the hosts’
domestic spaces. Because current events are a fluid and changing
subject matter, each performance differs dramatically, shaped as
well by the range of backgrounds and political positions of the
 participants in the room. The New York Times Feminist Reading
Group is a way to examine the media landscape through the lens
of feminism but also look at the diversity of feminisms represented
in media, and in this way each performance tells us something
about the wide variety of what feels urgent and relevant to each
 participant that day.
Free with Museum admission.

The Loft Artists Association "Open Studios 2016” Fri. Nov. 11, 6 to 9 PM, Sat. Nov. 12 , Noon to 5 PM and Sun. Nov. 13, Noon to 5 pm

The Loft Artists Association celebrates another event-filled year of “art-meets-life” in the South End with “Open Studios 2016” at 575 Pacific St. in Stamford on Fri. Nov. 11, 6 to 9 PM, Sat. Nov. 12 , Noon to 5 PM and Sun. Nov. 13, Noon to 5 pm

“Our annual weekend-long exhibition highlights the LAA’s creativity in this growing area of Stamford, bringing art, culture, and interactive collaboration, not only to the South End population, but to the entire community,” President Ellen Gordon says. “This is a rare opportunity for art lovers, collectors, and appreciators to see the work of over 40 award-winning artists in one location.”

The Loft Artists pioneered the South End of Stamford, setting up an artist colony in the former Yale & Towne Factory, now the home of contemporary apartments. They produced happenings, performances, tours and lectures that attracted thousands of people from the tri-state area. They held workshops, gave demonstrations and opened their doors, inviting the community to see the creative process first hand. Now, 39 years later, they continue their great outreach tradition and invite the public to what has become known as one of Stamford’s greatest art experiences.   

The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual arts community and introducing the general public to artists and their work. Their grassroots events attract thousands of visitors and have been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after year. Admission and parking are free. (A donation is suggested.) Handicapped access is available on Saturday.

For directions and more information call 203-247-2027. Supported by The City Arts Partnership Program – City of Stamford, David Martin, Mayor. Sponsored in part by Aghabumi Best of Bali, Louis J. Kuriansky Foundation, Bob and Pat Phillips, and Wagner Instruments.

French-American Digital Lab 2016 Startups Selected September 16, 2016 | By French Culture


French-American Digital Lab 2016 Startups Selected

September 16, 2016 | By French Culture

Six French startup teams—pioneering technologies as diverse as high-performance fabrics; personalized sound for concerts and shared musical experiences; and tools to create and publish interactive videos for virtual reality masks—have been selected to participate in the 2016 New York edition of the French-American Digital Lab. The creative and economic development program for startups and content creators of the cultural sector is kicking off its second year on October 17 after a successful inaugural 2015 edition. 
Developed by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and Business France, in collaboration with their longtime partner, the Made in NY Media Center by IFP, the program offers startups the opportunity to discover the American ecosystem through an intensive 10-day program of meetings, seminars and creative sessions. Crafted with the goal of providing startups with the tools to adapt their products to the U.S. market, the program also provides individualized mentorship with experts from the cultural and digital sector and networking opportunities. 
The selected starups were chosen based on their disruptive potential and ability to adapt to an international landscape:
 · Augmented Acoustics has developed a unique technical solution that enables live concert viewers to have an unprecedented, immersive sound experience, customizable and flexible according to their tastes and listening profile.
· INDUO® develops high performance fabrics for fashion. 
· Wakatoon creates coloring book pages which, with a single photo, can be turned into personalized cartoons. 
· Wellcut allows brands, the media, and fans to share their favorite video moments instantly.
· Wonda VR enables users to create and publish interactive videos for virtual reality masks. 
· 44screens creates singular interactive visiting experiences combining augmented reality, virtual reality, and games for cultural and historic sites.
Jean-Marc Ayrault, French Minister of Foreign Affairs, emphasized the importance of the digital cultural industries in today’s economic climate: “Cultural and creative industries are now responsible for 2.7 billion euros of France’s exports, with the digital economy being of primary interest. The digital cultural industries are therefore a powerful driving force. This year, the French-American Digital Lab is focusing on virtual reality, design, and fashion, all of which hold great stakes for the industrial sector and around which it would be vital to build ties between France and the U.S. This ambitious program thus helps to shine light on French expertise in digital innovation in the cultural sphere and highlight of our businesses’ potential on an international scale.”
The 2016 edition of the French-American Digital Lab has been produced in partnership with the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator (BF+DA), a Pratt Institute initiative, and within the framework of the Paris-New York Tandem 2016, a program of the City of Paris and the Institut français. The French-American Digital Lab is also supported by Orange, 18Havas.ios and the DESIGN studio by Dassault Systemes
