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.

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.

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






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

NEXT APRIL23 2017 in HYERES<....look for a pop up event @LM STUDIO

World Book and Copyright Day 2016

A book is a link between the past and the future. It is a bridge between generations and across cultures. It is a force for creating and sharing wisdom and knowledge.
Frank Kafka once said, “a book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul.”
A window onto our inner lives, books are also the doorway to mutual respect and understanding between people, across all boundaries and differences.

Le french cheese débarque à New York City et possède désormais son lieu dédié. Le duo de graphistes Ich&Kar vient en effet de concevoir un concept store mettant en “scène” le fromage français d’une toute autre manière. Un lieu inédit, un véritable point de rencontre pour comprendre, échanger et apprendre le meilleur de la culture du fromage français.
C’est en plein cœur de New York dans le quartier new-yorkais hype de Nolita - paradis des foodies - que la Milk Factory (laboratoire de création de la collective des produits laitiers) a souhaité un lieu atypique. Elle a ainsi fait appel et confiance au duo de graphistes qui se sont essayé avec brio à la 3D. Le French Cheese Board est un concept store conçu en forme de “cheeselab” où l’on célèbre pleinement l’art de vivre à la française. Un espace pensé comme une plateforme conviviale, interactive et pluridisciplinaire.
Pour leur toute première réalisation en architecture d’intérieur, les graphistes ont su sortir de leur zone de confort (la 2D) pour créer une identité en trois dimensions, une architecture graphique où les murs ouvrent le dialogue… “Si nous avons toujours pensé que la feuille A4 était un volume, l’expérience exaltante à New York nous a révélé une nouvelle voie” explique Helena Ichbiah. Résultat, une ambiance très tableau noir avec des murs qui nous parlent et nous enseignent une véritable culture fromage.
Offrir une sélection pointue des meilleurs fromages français : bleu, croûte fleurie, croûte lavée, beurre AOP… a été mêlé à une sélection d’art de la table dessinée par différents artistes et designers - des couteaux à fromage de la coutellerie Nontron signés Christian Ghion, des planches à fromage et des beurriers de la designer bordelaise Caroline Gomez, etc… sont proposés à la boutique. “Faire saliver”, tel est l’objectif de ce concept store : des photos artistiques montrent également le fromage d’une toute autre façon pour mettre immédiatement l’eau à la bouche. On attend avec impatience les ouvertures des FCB à travers le monde.

you can "read" the proverb inscribed in the artwork by Michal Teague ..leaflet picked up at Art DUbai in March,,,it took me a month to "see" the proverb!....

Great idea for

check out

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.

This beautiful Arabian proverb explains the usefulness of a book. The book is compared to a garden in a pocket and the garden mentioned in this nature.

There are two important teachers in this world. One is the nature and the other is a book. Nature teaches us through experience and is considered to be the best teacher in the olden days. This is because man learnt a lot of things from nature like lighting a fire, the wheel and many more things. It also provided him with all the necessities for life.

When the times changed these experiences were written down in the form of a book. This was a step forward because man could record his thoughts and pass his observations from one generation to other. The printing press was invented by Gutenberg in 1500 A.D. and it helped in quick and cost effective printing of books on a large scale. So a lot of people who could not buy the look either because they were costly or they were rare started buying them. This free availability of books changed the society and was instrumental in spreading knowledge. So the book helped man in a very significant way and since it had the ideas of nature contained in it, it has been compared with a garden.
