Opening NEW Museum in NY..Sat dec 1st

Le New Museum fait peau neuve
NEW YORK - Il ouvre le 1er décembre dans un immeuble conçu par l’agence japonaise Sanaa - celle qui est en charge du Louvre Lens - ressemblant à un empilement de boîtes blanches. Ces six boîtes cachent huit étages où la lumière est dispensée généreusement, et une surface de 5000 m2, abritant des galeries d’exposition et un théâtre de 182 places. Le New Museum, qui se veut un « incubateur » de l’art contemporain, n’est en réalité pas si neuf que ça puisque cette inauguration coïncide avec son 30e anniversaire. Sa fondatrice, Marcia Tucker, qui ava it associé son nom à des rétrospectives précoces sur John Baldessari, Keith Haring ou Tony Oursler, est décédée l’an dernier et n’aura donc pas eu le temps de connaître cette nouvelle adresse, dans le bas de Manhattan. La première exposition, sous le titre « Unmonumental », s’attache à une discipline peu en vogue, la sculpture, en présentant le travail de 30 artistes du monde entier, dont Jim Lambie ou Sarah Lucas.
• Le New Museum est inauguré le 1er décembre sur 235 Bowery

Opening of "Don't call it Street Art"



Opening Reception
Saturday, Dec. 15, 2007, 3-8 pm
Studio/Gallery 173
173-171 Canal Street, #5 floor

Please take a moment to check the following infos sent by Pascale Py about an event taking place Saturday December 15ht in New York .


.More infos if you click on the title,....

DON’T CALL IT STREET ART! is curated by French pop artist Thibault Sandret
(www.glamtrashpop.com).
The exhibition brings together mixed-media artists who transpose street-art
practices on canvases, graphic designers whose visual codes derive from urban
productions and, last but not least, photographers who capture the ephemeral
beauty of this art form. All the featured artists share a desire to harvest the rich
energy of the street, to excavate its spirit and to highlight the inherent beauty of
decay.
Virginie Sommet, a French conceptual artist who has been active in the New
York art scene for more than ten years, hosts the show in her Studio/Gallery 173
on Canal Street..............

21% of the proceeds will be donated to Millenium Promise, a charity whose aim it is to erase poverty.

I will be showing a number of large scale images, alphabets and cityscapes, and will attend the launch party on Wednesday evening.

UPDATES for the Studio MUSEUM @HARLEM



Contrairement a ce qui nous avait ete annonce lors de notre visite LMNY en Octobre, il n'y aura pas d'expo Jacob Lawrence sur le theme de la migration.
En attendant il y aura KORO NEWKIRK....

Trouvez les infos directement sur le site du musee en cliquant sur le lien du titre...


Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series:
Selections from The Phillips Collection
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the exhibition Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series: Selections from The Phillips Collection has been postponed.

While it is the Museum's great hope to present these cherished masterpieces soon, we require some time and planning before we can proceed with the exhibition. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment that this may cause. Please enjoy the exhibitions and projects currently on view.
Updates will be posted here and on our telephone lines (212-864-4500).

Current Exhibitions

November 14, 2007-March 9, 2008
Kori Newkirk: 1997-2007
Kori Newkirk (b. 1970) is a celebrated multidisciplinary artist whose conceptual practice is based on transforming modest materials into loaded signifiers that question both cultural and aesthetic notions of beauty. Newkirk elegantly blends medium and message-using photographs, wax, hair pomade, beads and neon lights-to forge a new paradigm in art practice. This survey exhibition presents work produced since Newkirk received his MFA from the University of California at Irvine, includes a site-specific project and illustrates how interrelated strands of his practice have converged and developed over time.

New @ Bowling Green Park

November 16: Seth Weiner installs myOpticon at Bowling Green Park
myOpticon, a thermal imaging system in the guise of coin-operated binoculars developed by Eyebeam Summer resident Seth Weiner, has been installed in Lower Manhattan’s Bowling Green Park and is now directed toward the United States Custom House. myOpticon constructs an image consisting only of the infrared radiation emitted by all objects as a function of surface temperature. The viewing device sees just as well in pitch darkness and fog as in broad daylight, rendering camouflage and the cover of night obsolete. In addition to constructing a thermal image, myOpticon provides surface temperature readings of any surface placed in its crosshairs.
myOpticon is open to the public through the end of the year. An informal reception will gather at dusk on November 16, 2007. Exhibited as part of NYC Park’s exhibition: Art in the Parks: Celebrating 40 Years of Art, myOpticon was made possible in part by a grant from Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the September 11 Fund. Additional support was provided by Eyebeam’s residency program and a Fellowship from New York Foundation for the Arts.
