Complimenting Moniker’s lineup of gallery exhibitors will be a focus on solo artist presentations, with the fair’s Open Studios section and its installations by Spotlight Artists . “Open Studios” will be a dedicated section for solo artists to design a booth that best exemplifies their practice and work. Spotlight Artists are picked to create interactive and large-scale installations that can be found throughout the fair. Both initiatives amplify Moniker’s commitment to creating a sensational, immersive environment that highly engages its audience.

“We are thrilled to be returning to New York again this year following a strong debut,” said Tina Ziegler, Fair Director . “At a time when across the world we’re increasingly seeing closed borders, fear of divide, and exclusionary, divisive pol­itics, it’s an important moment for the art world to celebrate inclusivity, global activism and a community that operates with a proudly international outlook. That’s a particularly strong part of the exhibitions and installations we’re hosting at this year’s fair, and one that I’m excited about.”

Last year’s inaugural US edition reported over 6,000 visitors, who attended to see work by pioneers within the urban art scene and enjoy Moniker’s many unique programs and events. Programming for this year’s fair was created around the desire to make art collecting more accessible, and includes Collector’s Day, an alternative for the typical art fair Vernissage, which provides early access to the fair and a series of special events.

New York Superfine! Art Fair 2019
May 1 – May 5 all-day

New York Superfine! Art Fair 2019

May 1 – 5, 2019

107 Grand Street in Soho

Superfine! Brings Unstuffy Art Fair Experience to Soho for Third Annual May Show

Visit the official site here…

Basquiat and Warhol once roamed these streets, but there’s a new kid in town. Enter Superfine! Art Fair. Equal parts punk rock spirit and accessible art market innovation, Superfine! brings a new look and location to its 2019 New York fair, leaving the Meatpacking and landing at 107 Grand Street in Soho from May 1-5. A transparent, approachable player in an often stuffy and opaque art market, Superfine! believes that buying art should be a simple process and that an art fair should be an enjoyable atmosphere where anyone who wants to collect art can do so.

Superfine! NYC’s roster particularly emphasizes queer art, including the Call Me By Your Preferred Pronoun special project by Brooklyn artist Adam Chuck. The artist’s Polaroid-style paintings specially commissioned by the fair’s directors evoke the continued narrative of Oliver and Elio in last year’s Oscar-winning film – reimagined in the personage of the broader LGBTQ+ community. Provincetown’s On Center Gallery will also present their first fair booth blending homegrown charm with cutting-edge LGBTQ+ new contemporary work by artists including Andrew Moncrief and Thom Jackson.

Other exhibition highlights include mysterious Brooklyn-based artist Andy Blank, whose none-too-understated mission is to create “f*&%ing awesome” artwork under $200 using museum-quality materials. As rumors swirl about the real identity of the artist, their first major fair install will take place at Superfine! NYC.

New York’s Untitled Space, fresh from their much-lauded “Eden” presentation at curatorial darling SPRING/BREAK will show fiercely feminist and political works by artists from NYC and abroad. New Orleans and Santa Fe’s Antieau Gallery will present self-taught artist Chris Roberts-Antieau’s work in their second Superfine! Booth, DC being the first. Chris’ signature tapestry-based mixed media paintings pull from a variety of source material ranging from pop culture absurdism to traditional NoLA occult imagery.

Announcing: Two Fairs / One Pass, Superfine! + Moniker Partner for Dual Fair Access

Superfine! has partnered with Moniker Art Fair in nearby NoHo to provide access to both fairs via a Downtown Double Dip fair pass allowing guests access to both fairs during open admission hours from Friday, May 3 to Sunday, May 5. The pass, at $25, shakes out to a 20% discount and encourages fairgoers to experience both fairs’ perspectives in the same day. Moniker, borne from London’s Shoreditch urban art scene, exemplifies the best in emerging and established artists from the urban and street art genres. Both fairs will also reciprocally welcome VIP guests and collectors to enjoy the full program of each fair.

Superfine! NYC will take place from May 1-5 at 107 Grand Street in Soho, Manhattan. Tickets are available at superfinenyc.eventbrite.com and include complimentary beer or wine for fairgoers.

Pride 2019: Live 4 Love Art Installation at the World Trade Center’s Oculus
Jun 14 – Jun 28 all-day

The World Trade Center Celebrates
NYC Pride 2019
With Public ‘LIVE 4 LOVE’ Art Installation

On View from June 14 – 28, 2019

Australian artists Maurice Goldberg and Matthew Aberline designed and created an installation that will be displayed in the Oculus from June 14 through June 28 before it joins the NYC Pride March

NEW YORK, June 10, 2019 – The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, Silverstein Properties, Westfield World Trade Center and the Alliance for Downtown New York have sponsored a symbolic “Live 4 Love” art installation in the Oculus to celebrate WorldPride NYC and the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.

The large, colorful installation was created by two Australian artists to bring the story of the LGBTQIA+ community to life in a dynamic way.  “Live 4 Love” is an inflatable structure that stands over 20 feet tall and is covered with powerful design symbols that represent freedom, inclusion, gender diversity, friendship, and adversity. In the evenings, the installation will be illuminated with internal LED lights and act as a large-scale lantern.  On June 14, the installation will come to life in the Oculus and will remain on public display until June 28. Segments of the installation will subsequently be showcased during New York City’s Pride March on June 30.

As part of its “Be Seen” campaign, the Downtown Alliance is looking to continue the conversation about LGBTQIA+ visibility with an Instagram video contest that asks people to submit a video to complete the statement #IFeelSeenWhen. The contest is live until June 17 and one lucky winner will get five tickets to walk in the 2019 NYC Pride March on June 30 with NYC & Company.

Every year in June, thousands gather for the NYC Pride March to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community in New York City. The annual march has grown into a civil rights demonstration that honors those who have fought for equal rights and those who have lost their lives to AIDS. You can show your support for the LGBTQIA+ community by sharing your Pride story using the hashtags, #FeelSeenWhen, #WorldPride, and #WorldPride2019.

Artist, curator, and director of New York City’s Percent for Art Program, Kendal Henry, will discuss the contemporary role of monuments in public spaces, and his work with local communities and She Built to develop 18 new monuments representing women.

Photographer Stacy Arezou Mehrfar’s emotionally rich portraits of demonstrators at marches across New York City after the 2016 election, will be displayed in backlit lightboxes throughout the theater lobby.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim
presents

Treasure

by Machine Dazzle

September 5 – 7, 2019
at 7:30pm

“Costume designers generally work within a realistic tradition. But the only script that the theatrical genius Machine Dazzle follows is an emotional one.”
-The New Yorker

“Meet the Gender-Bending Costume Designer Who’s Re-creating Queer History” – The Cut

Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents Treasure by Machine Dazzle, made-to-measure for the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed theater at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on the occasion of New York Fashion Week.

Distant dreams come full circle in this Works & Process commission of multidisciplinary artist, maximalist, and 2018 New York City Village Halloween Parade Grand Marshall Machine Dazzle. Undressing layers of his past to make sense of the present, Machine Dazzle will introduce new looks inspired by his original songs and stories written for Treasure. Machine Dazzle will be joined on stage by Music Director Viva DeConcini and musicians brought together especially for this collaboration.

Conceptualist-as-artist meets DIY meets “glitter rhymes with litter,” Machine was a co-recipient of the 2017 Bessie Award for Outstanding Visual Design and the winner of a 2017 Henry Hewes Design Award.

See Taylor Mac and Machine Dazzle discuss their 2017 collaboration, A 24-Decade History of Popular Music. Video Link

Treasure by Machine Dazzle is commissioned by Works & Process at the Guggenheim with support from Pomegranate Arts and a creative residency at LUMBERYARD.

Machine Dazzle (né Matthew Flower) has been dazzling stages via costumes, sets, and performance since his arrival in New York in 1994. Credits include Julie Atlas Muz’s Am The Moon And a You Are The Man On Me (2004), Big Art Group’s House Of No More (2006), Justin Vivian Bond’s Lustre (2008), Taylor Mac’s The Lily’s Revenge (2009), Justin Vivian Bond’s Re:Galli Blonde (2011), Taylor Mac’s Walk Across America For Mother Earth (2012), Chris Tanner’s Football Head (2014), Soomi Kim’s Change (2015), Pig Iron Theater’s I Promised Myself To Live Faster (2015), Bombay Ricky Prototype Festival (2016), Taylor Mac’s A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (2016-Present), Opera Philadelphia’s Dito and Aeneus (2017), Spiegleworld’s Opium (Las Vegas 2018). Conceptualist-as-artist meets DIY meets “glitter rhymes with litter,” Machine was a co-recipient the 2017 Bessie Award for Outstanding Visual Design and the winner of a 2017 Henry Hewes Design Award.

Viva DeConciniplays guitar like a flaming sword, a screaming train, a ringing bell, and a scratching chicken. She sings like if Freddy Mercury had been a woman. She is influenced by diverse artists and styles including Jimi Hendrix, Dolly Parton, NYC, disco and jam band music, and has played everywhere from Bonnaroo with Cyro Baptista to Monterey Jazz Fest with Peter Apfelbaum. She has produced sell out music, burlesque and variety shows at The Slipper Room and Joe’s Pub and is one of the few females to be featured in Guitar Player Magazine. Viva moved to NYC in the 90’s and began performing with legendary downtown Brazilian Percussionist Cyro Baptista’s innovative funk theater/band Beat The Donkey. After ten years and hundreds of shows, Viva left Beat The Donkey to pursue her own music. In 2008, that music came to fruition in the form of “Electric Cabaret”, a burlesque-fueled album, critically lauded for the front woman’s stand-out guitar. Her second record “Rock & Roll Lover” (2010), charted on CMJ and she was hailed by Vintage Guitar Magazine as having written some of the best rock songs in a decade.  In 2011, Viva made her NYC theatrical debut as the musician in Taylor Mac’s play WAAFME, which the The New York Times hailed as one of 2011’s ten best.

The Cathedral Of St. John The Divine Presents “Transformed Overnight: The Impact Of 9/11” with Screening Of 2001
Sep 11 @ 7:00 am – 7:00 pm

The Cathedral Of St. John The Divine Presents “Transformed Overnight: The Impact Of 9/11” with Screening Of 2001

Wednesday, September 11, 2019
7:00 am – 7:00 pm

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine
1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan

COST:  Free

In collaboration with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine will host Transformed Overnight: The Impact of 9/11 with a rare screening of 2001 by Wolfgang Staehle, a time-lapse compilation of video footage, extracted at four-second intervals during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, on Wednesday September 11, from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street).

Countless New Yorkers witnessed the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center as they were unfolding. Every conceivable form of image-capturing device recorded that awful spectacle, earning it distinction as the most visually recorded event of all time.

Wolfgang Staehle, a pioneering internet artist, inadvertently chronicled the approach of hijacked Flight 11 and its explosion through the North Tower at 8:46 a.m. on 9/11 by a pair of webcams in Brooklyn. Focused on lower Manhattan, the camera shutters were calibrated precisely to trip at four-second intervals, continuously snapping panoramic views programmed for live-streaming to the Postmasters Gallery in Manhattan.

Staehle’s installation, which also included two similar, remote camera setups in Berlin and the Swabian countryside in Germany, was intended to convey the predictable normalcy of life at the start of the 21st century. Manhattan’s downtown skyline represented the contributing influence of global capitalism. With the 9/11 attacks, these mundane rhythms were ruptured as Staehle’s cameras chronicled the transformation of a routine workday into a city under siege.

Presentation of this program is made possible through the generous support of 9/11 Memorial Museum Presenting Sustainer Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund.

NYHC Fall Event to Feature Hands-on MultiCrafts Demos and Popup Market @ Grand Bazaar | New York | New York | United States

New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) Joins Grand Bazaar For “Hands-On!” Multi Crafts Demonstrations & Pop-Up Market

Sunday, September 29, 2019

Unique Fall shopping experience will feature live demos and a juried selection of one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted, locally made, artisanal crafts and accessories.

The New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) — formerly known as the Etsy NY Street Team — in partnership with the Grand Bazaar NYC — will welcome Fall with hands-on, multi crafts demonstrations and a pop-up market. This unique shopping experience of live outdoor craft demos and a dynamic handcrafted product showcase of the NYHC’s local talent, will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29, from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, at the popular shopping destination located at 100 West 77 Street and Columbus Avenue.

“Grand Bazaar NYC firmly believes in supporting local artists, designers and craft-makers, which helps keep our city vibrant and creative,” said Marc Seago, Executive Director at Grand Bazaar NYC. “We’re thrilled that the NY Handmade Collective will once again be joining us for this exciting Fall shopping experience.”

Shoppers will discover a diverse selection of outstanding, one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted merchandise created by over 40 talented, multi-disciplined artisans and designers from the New York metropolitan area. The vast array of exceptional goods will run the gamut from fine art, eye-catching stationery, unusual jewelry, distinctive fashions, home decor and amazing skincare products to items for children and pets.

“This season’s new and improved market offers a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes, shop and watch the hands-on creation of unique products from our cadre of diverse, talented local artisans,” said Andi B. O’Connor, co-organizer. “Situated within the long-established Upper West Side market that is the Grand Bazaar NYC, the NYHC Show will highlight the value of quality handmade crafts in today’s society when so much is mass-produced and disposable.”

The Importance of Handmade

Recently NYHC surveyed over 200 artisans to gather impressions and data on the importance of quality handmade products. At this season’s show, NYHC will have a table with information and materials on this subject, staffed by members who can answer visitors’ questions. For example,creators of handcrafted goods are part of a community dedicated to connecting with customers and bringing back the personal touch that is so rare in today’s digital global marketplace.

Other survey findings:

Handmade products tend to be of higher quality, singular and authentic, reflecting rich cultures and traditions and an eco-friendly, sustainable, environmental awareness that is present in these artisans’ practices and processes. Handcrafted items also nurture creativity and individuality and perpetuate the art of crafting. In addition, handmade products are beautiful, one-of-a-kind and well-made. As a result, they tend to be more valuable and durable than mass-produced, disposable items.

About NYHC:

Founded in 2007 and representing one of the oldest, largest and most professionally organized teams of local active sellers on Etsy, Inc., the NYHC has cultivated a long-established, local presence in the NYC metro area by hosting a number of successful and highly curated in-person markets, workshops and events: Holiday Handmade Cavalcade, Crafts in Chelsea, and Celebrate Brooklyn, to name a few.

Open 7 days a week; 11:00 am – 8:00 pm

30 Rockefeller Plaza
Entrance on 6th Avenue Between 49th and 50th Streets, Manhattan

Contemporary British artist Lucy Sparrow, known for her covetable felt art pieces and shops, will return to New York City with Lucy Sparrow’s Delicatessen on 6th, an interactive public art project and retail experience at Rockefeller Center. Opening on the corner of 49th Street and 6th Avenue on October 1, this sixth installation in her felt shop series will resemble a New York City upscale deli, with every single one of the items, from cheese to fish, chocolate to fruit handmade out of felt. All items in the fine food shop will be available for purchase.

Each of her installations has unveiled a site-specific, interactive, parallel universe, envisioned and then faithfully reproduced in felt. Lucy Sparrow’s Delicatessen on 6th will pay homage to the gourmet treasure trove of temptation for which New York is famous: the upscale deli. At Rockefeller Center, Lucy’s on 6th will be a fine food emporium with every counter – from patisserie to confectionary, fancy French fromages to fresh fish and seafood – overflowing with a cornucopia of unique full-felted, hand-stitched, bejeweled artworks. New for this installation, the artwork is adorned with tiny eyes and smiles, encouraging the viewer to examine their relationship with the food they purchase and to consider their own thoughts about consumerism.

This installation is part of the ‘Art in Focus’ public art program at Rockefeller Center presented in partnership with the nonprofit Art Production Fund.

Ruth Stage

Presents

The Glass Menagerie

October 3 – 20, 2019

Wild Project
195 E 3rd St

Ruth Stage is thrilled to present a chilling new take on Tennessee Williams’ seminal play, THE GLASS MENAGERIE, directed by Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch.

After two critically acclaimed runs in 2018 of Wars of the Roses, directors Austin Pendleton and Peter Bloch reunite with actor Matt de Rogatis to take on the American classic, The Glass Menagerie. In this disquieting production, the tormented Tom (de Rogatis) relives the story of his time in the Wingfields St. Louis apartment, circa 1939, as if he were remembering it through the lens of a spooky dream.

The cast, led by Ginger Grace as the iconic Amanda Wingfield, consists of Matt de Rogatis as her son Tom Wingfield, Alexandra Rose as Laura Wingfield, and Spencer Scott as The Gentleman Caller.

Set designer Jessie Bonaventure, who was the assistant set designer on the Broadway musical Hadestown, which garnered four Tony Awards, including Best Scenic Design, collaborates with lighting designer Steven Wolf to create a version of this Tennessee Williams masterpiece that borders on horror.

Dimly lit and surrealistic, the set itself will consist of props made of glass and the actors will live in a chilling, dreamlike world. Taking inspiration from the The Exorcist soundtrack, Sean Haggerty writes the score for this Wes Craven meets Tennessee Williams production. Allison Hohman designs the sound for the Wingfield house of horrors.

New York Butoh Institute Festival 19

October 10-27, 2019

at Theater for the New City

New York Butoh Institute presents the New York Butoh Institute Festival 19 from Thursday, October 10 through Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Theater for the New City. This year will mark the 60th anniversary of the Japanese performance art form butoh.

Curated by New York Butoh Institute’s founder Vangeline, the Festival will consist of an exciting program of Butoh workshops and masterclasses, as well as seven nights of groundbreaking performances presented at Theater for the New City. The festival will conclude on Sunday, October 27 with a lecture and short film celebrating the founder of butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata, and the 60 years of this historical and revolutionary art form as it continues to evolve into the 21st century.

The bold butoh performances being presented during the festival will feature 14 female dancers from Japan, Colombia, Norway, Italy, Germany, France, and the U.S. One of the pieces, Hijikata, Mon Amour, will be performed by Vangeline as an homage to butoh founder Tatsumi Hijikata. A highlight of the piece will be the costume Vangeline will wear: an exact replica of the bold red costume Tatsumi Hijikata wore in his legendary butoh performance of Tatsumi Hijikata and The Japanese-Revolt of the Flesh in 1968.

Thanks to a loan from the Tatsumi Hijikata Archives and a Janet Arnold Award from the Society of Antiquaries of London, the Festival is able to showcase the replica of this iconic costume worn by Tatsumi Hijikata in Revolt of the Flesh. Hijikata’s costume remains a totem for butoh-it holds secrets of the avant-garde art form.

Much like butoh itself, it was born at the confluence of East and West. This costume chronicles the evolution of postmodern art in Japan. The Festival will close with a short film of Tatsumi Hijikata in his 1968 solo, and a lecture with costume expert Todd Thomas who recreated the costume, and who will discuss his process, shedding light on how the original costume was designed and constructed. Prior to and during the presentation, the replica will be on display for audience members to see.

The New York Butoh Festival 19 will take place at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue, NYC. Thursday through Saturday October 17-19 and October 24-26 at 8pm, Sunday October 20 at 3pm, Sunday October 27 special event lecture at 3pm. Tickets are $18-$20, and can be purchased by phone at (212) 254-1109 or online at https://butohfest-19.eventbrite.com/. The lecture on Sunday, October 27 is free and open to the public.

VANGELINE THEATER/NEW YORK BUTOH INSTITUTE aims to preserve the legacy and integrity of Japanese Butoh while carrying the art form well into the future. The unique art of Butoh originated in post- World War II Japan as a reaction to the loss of identity caused by the westernization of Japanese culture, as well as a realization that ancient Japanese performing traditions no longer spoke to a contemporary audience. One of the major developments in contemporary dance in the latter half of the 20th century, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique performing art form that is both controversial and universal in its expression. The Vangeline Theater is home to the New York Butoh Institute, dedicated to the advancement of Butoh in the 21st century. www.vangeline.com

Vangeline is a teacher, dancer, and choreographer specializing in the Japanese postwar avant-garde movement form Butoh. She is the artistic director of the Vangeline Theater (New York), a dance company firmly rooted in the tradition of Japanese Butoh while carrying it into the 21st century, and the founder of the New York Butoh Institute. Her work has been heralded in publications such as The New York Times (“captivating”), Los Angeles
Times, (“moves with the clockwork deliberation of a practiced Japanese Butoh artist”) and LA Weekly, to name a few. More recently her solo “Butoh Beethoven: Eclipse” received critical acclaim from the Ballet Review.

Vangeline is a 2018 NYFA/ NYSCA Artist Fellow in Choreography. She is also the winner of the 2015 Gibney Dance’s Beth Silverman-Yam Social Action Award. Film projects include a starring role alongside actors James Franco and Winona Ryder in the 2012 feature film The Letter, written and directed by Jay Anania, She has performed with/for Grammy Award-winning artists SKRILLEX and Esperanza Spalding. She is the author of a forthcoming book about butoh and looks forward to curating the second New York Butoh Institute Festival 19 this October.
