New York, NY (December 21, 2018)—Tishman Speyer will host the public premiere of the acclaimed three-part virtual reality series, SPHERES, at New York’s iconic Rockefeller Center, beginning January 18th through March 3, 2019.

Tickets are limited.

SPHERES made history earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival when it was acquired by CityLights, becoming the first ever VR experience to sell at a major film festival for seven figures. In September 2018 it became the first virtual reality experience to be programmed and screened at the Telluride Film Festival.

Written and directed by Eliza McNitt, executive produced by PROTOZOA PICTURES’ Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel and produced by Jess Engel, Arnaud Colinart, and Dylan Golden, the series stars Millie Bobby BrownJessica Chastain and Patti Smith. SPHERES won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Virtual Reality Immersive Story at the 2018 Venice Film Festival. SPHERES was scored by Grammy-nominated artists Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein (Stranger Things).

Presented by Rockefeller Center with support from RYOT, tickets will be available for advanced-purchase beginning December 20, 2018 for $50. Screenings will take place seven days a week in 600 Fifth Avenue, (entrance on 48th Street between Fifth and the Plaza), in a custom-designed space-inspired dark room with seven viewing stations. Tickets are available for purchase at www.rockefellercenter.com/attractions/spheres.

“We’ve poured our hearts into this experience and it’s a dream to have SPHERES at Rockefeller Center. Together, we’re making virtual reality accessible to the public,” said writer and director Eliza McNitt. “Now audiences can be transported from New York City to the heart of a black hole. I can’t wait for you to join us on this journey to the cosmos.”

“CityLights made the decision to purchase SPHERES at Sundance because we knew it was something special that audiences would want to experience, as long as we gave them a chance. Our vision for its potential is now unfolding as we partner with New York’s famous Rockefeller Center,” said Joel Newtonwith CityLights. “This is the beginning of something new in VR as we bring immersive content to the public.”

“We are so excited to host the public premiere of SPHERES, this incredible virtual reality experience, at Rockefeller Center,” said Michaella Solar-March, Managing Director Marketing and Experience at Rockefeller Center. “We are constantly looking to bring unique cultural and entertainment offerings to our tenants and all New Yorkers, and this is a perfect fit.”

HARLEM, NY – (January 10, 2019) Excitement is building up, as opening night of the Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) grows near. HFAS returns to the historic Riverside Church, 91 Claremont Avenue, New York, NY on Thursday, February 14th through Sunday, February 17th, 2019 for their coveted four-day exhibition and sale, youth empowerment programs and nightly VIP receptions.  HFAS is proud to continue their special partnership with The Riverside Church and the fine artists that make up HFAS, during Black History Month.

The Harlem Fine Arts Show was created in 2009 to showcase artists and galleries of the African Diaspora. Its roots reach back to the Harlem Renaissance, the cultural movement in the 1920s that nurtured an unprecedented flowering of artistic talent in the visual and performing arts, poetry, and fashion. The four-day traveling exhibition and sale of contemporary paintings, sculpture and photography is the largest of its kind featuring art from the African Diaspora, in addition to art related programs.

This year’s annual HFAS will showcase and salute African Americans in Technology on Opening Night, in addition to raising awareness about technology as a career choice for young people. The Harlem Fine Arts Show is a celebration of African-American artistic history, in the vein of masters including Palmer C. Hayden, Augusta Savage, Romare Bearden, Elizabeth Catlett, Jacob Lawrence, and Ernie Barnes.  The HFAS will showcase over 40 national and international artists and galleries offering investment-level art at multiple price points.

HFAS serves to find, nurture, and highlight artistic talent.  HFAS has provided a new generation of art collectors and those with a general interest in increasing their appreciation for art with exposure to the artwork of masters.  Additionally HFAS has served as the vehicle for celebrating contemporary artists like Mickalene Thomas, Kehinde Wiley and Leroy Campbell.  The HFAS art will come alive in the exhibit galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and cultures. HFAS is able to show all the different cultures and mediums of Fine art and bring Fine Art to the entire family. The HFAS visitors will discover new ideas and unexpected connections through art.

Opening Night Thursday, February 14th, the HFAS will host an Opening Night Preview event at 6:00 pm with a “Salute to African Americans in Technology”

Friday, February 15th, “Youth Empowerment Day”, • Uptown Friday Night @ HFAS – A sophisticated evening of “The Healing Power of Art,” HFAS will showcase and celebrate African Americans in the medical field, with a VIP dinner and awards ceremony, art exhibition & sale

About The 2019 Harlem Fine Arts Show

As the largest traveling African Diasporic art show in the United States, HFAS prides itself on its uncanny ability to bring people of all different backgrounds together to celebrate fine arts of the African Diaspora.  Inspired by the Harlem Renaissance, HFAS provides a platform for African Diasporic visionaries as well as American visual artists to exhibit and sell their artwork. The Harlem Fine Arts Show has also created economic empowerment, educational opportunities, and professional recognition within the multicultural community.  First held in February 2010 in New York City, the Harlem Fine Arts Show has attracted more than 80,000 visitors to venues, including Martha’s Vineyard, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Chicago, White Plains and New York City. Attendees include collectors, art enthusiasts, educators, students, and professionals.

New York, January 16, 2019—The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) today announced additional highlights of the 2019 edition of The Art Show. The nation’s most respected and longest-running art fair will take place on February 28 – March 3, at the Park Avenue Armory in New York, with a Gala Preview on a new night, Wednesday, February 27. Organized by the ADAA, a nonprofit membership organization of art dealers from around the country, The Art Show offers collectors, arts professionals, and the public the opportunity to engage with artworks of the highest caliber through intimately scaled and thoughtfully curated exhibitions that encourage close viewing and active conversation with gallerists. Admission throughout the week as well as proceeds from the Gala Preview benefit Henry Street Settlement, one of New York’s leading social service, arts, and health care organizations. As Henry Street Settlement’s greatest source of unrestricted funding, The Art Show has raised over $31 million for the non-profit over more than three decades of partnership with the ADAA. With its core mission to protect collectors of art and valuable items against financial loss resulting from damage or physical loss of insured objects, AXA ART Americas continues to serve as an important partner of the ADAA. 2019 marks the insurer’s eleven-year relationship with the organization and eight years as Lead Partner of The Art Show.

For the 2019 edition, The Art Show features panels and conversations with major collectors, museum leaders, and industry experts across the U.S., including Tom Hill, Pamela Joyner, and Amy Sadao. The fair experience will also be enhanced by an updated look and feel, designed by Bade Stageberg Cox Architects, an inventive, award-winning firm with wide experience and a longstanding focus on the design of art galleries, museums, and spaces for private collections. Extending programming beyond the fair, the ADAA has organized the inaugural Upper East Side Gallery Walk, a collaboration between over 25 ADAA member galleries in the surrounding neighborhoods on Saturday, March 2, from 3 – 5 p.m.

“For over three decades, the nation’s most respected art galleries have come together to support Henry Street Settlement and engage the public with the breadth of their knowledge and quality of their programs,” said Andrew Schoelkopf, ADAA President, and cofounder and partner of Menconi + Schoelkopf. “This spirit of collaboration is the driving force behind The Art Show and the ADAA’s history and mission. We are proud to offer members an annual platform that is truly representative of the ways that galleries create meaningful experiences with art and foster the relationships with artists and collectors that power the art world.”

“Our invaluable partnership with the ADAA enables the Settlement to continue our 125-year legacy of innovation and dedicated service to New Yorkers in need,” said David Garza, Henry Street Settlement’s executive director. “The Art Show is our greatest source of flexible funding, allowing Henry Street to meet our community’s evolving needs, including access to the arts, necessary guidance to succeed academically, mental health counseling, and shelter from homelessness and domestic violence.”

ADAA Member Presentations at The Art Show 2019

The Art Show presentations were selected from proposals submitted by ADAA member galleries across the country. These thoughtfully curated exhibitions will feature national and international artists working across genres and works ranging from the mid-19th century through today. The Art Show 2019 will feature many first-time exhibitors, including Susan Inglett Gallery (New York), Kayne Griffin Corcoran (Los Angeles), Luxembourg & Dayan (New York), Jessica Silverman Gallery (San Francisco), and Venus Over Manhattan (New York), as well as founding ADAA member Castelli Gallery (New York), which returns to the fair after more than two decades.

Marking the largest number of collaborative projects in The Art Show’s history, six galleries have chosen to work together on joint exhibitions: Anglim Gilbert Gallery and P.P.O.W will show the works of painter Judith Linhares and sculptor Annabeth Rosen; Salon 94 and Jessica Silverman Gallery will present the work of Judy Chicago flanked by younger female artists from the galleries’ impressive rosters; and Fraenkel Gallery and David Zwirner will explore links and resonances between the works of Diane Arbus and Alice Neel.

Nearly half the fair will be devoted to ambitious solo exhibitions, with many featuring new works on view to the public for the first time. Petzel will debut sculptures by multi-disciplinary artist Seth Price. For The Art Show, Price has created works that explore the body as a complex plumbing system, represented through an intricate display of illuminated pipes. Also presenting new work is Sean Kelly, with the premiere of a new series by abstract artist Sam Moyer. Julie Saul Gallery will showcase new work by Maira Kalman, inspired by Getrude Stein’s “The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.” Additionally, Peter Blum Gallery will highlight new paintings and works on paper by Dutch artist Robert Zandvliet. These pieces will reference art historical landscapes from Van Gogh to Hokusai.

In addition to presentations by leading contemporary artists, ADAA gallery exhibitions will offer new insights on established and influential artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. Betty Cuningham Gallery will highlight the work of realist painter Rackstraw Downes. Accompanying the paintings will be a presentation of Rackstraw Downes: A Painter, a nearly-silent film by Rima Yamazaki, which gives viewers a rare, up-close glimpse of Downes at work. Modernism will present important works from the 1950s to 1970s by Jacques Villeglé, a founding member of the Nouveau Realiste group; and Michael Rosenfeld Gallery will exhibit paintings by the leading African American artist of his time, Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937), in what will be the artist’s first solo presentation by a New York gallery in over 50 years.

The intimate atmosphere of The Art Show allows galleries to create innovative thematic exhibitions that delve into a range of artistic practices. Jonathan Boos will present SURFACE, highlighting the use of impasto and patina in various forms through the work of diverse artists including Sam Gilliam, Marsden Hartley, Joan Mitchell, and Wayne Thiebaud. The presentation A Modern Sisterhood by Hirschl & Adler Galleries will tell the story of American women artists’ rise to equality over the first 50 years of the 20th century, including works by artists such as Mary Cassatt, Vanessa Helder, and Georgia O’Keeffe. For its inaugural year at The Art Show, Venus Over Manhattan will present Boxes, an exhibition that explores the many meanings and associations of the box in recent art history. Boxes created by John Dogg, John McCracken, Cady Noland, and Andy Warhol, among others, will be featured.

In Greek mythology, Clio or Kleio, is the muse of history.

The name is etymologically derived from the Greek root κλέω/κλείω meaning “to recount,” “to celebrate,” or “to make famous.”

With a nod to its inspiration, CLIO ART FAIR has been created with the idea of showcasing the careers and achievements of already affirmed creative minds. This is the eighth edition of CLIO ART FAIR.

By specifically targeting artists without any exclusive NYC gallery representation, CLIO ART FAIR focuses attention on the kinds of contemporary art and interventions that are being created by independent artists the world over, since 2014.

Without the constraints and usual concerns of the art business, the selected artists have been freed up to use different materials and media and to deviate from accepted art practice definitions. The resulting work being exhibited seeks to foster a dialogue that transcends prescribed geographies, hierarchies, and markets; and to further opportunities for greater expression of new media and ever ground-breaking content.

For this edition, the Fair’s curatorial board has prepared a special section titled I want to go Home, dedicated to the figure of the clandestine and the refugee, as well as contemplating the physical and mental boundaries that condition the geopolitics of our world.

Independent New York Announces Exhibitors for 10th Anniversary Edition

Independent is pleased to announce the participants for the upcoming iteration of Independent New York, which will return to Spring Studios in Tribeca from March 7-10, 2019. This occasion marks the 10th Anniversary Edition of Independent New York and will present over 50 international galleries and non-profit institutions.

Matthew Higgs, founding curatorial advisor to Independent and director of White Columns states, “Independent remains, first and foremost, a platform for the ideas of artists – of all kinds, and for the galleries – of all persuasions, that support them. Over the past ten years, Independent has been instrumental in suggesting that an art fair can be both a focused and revelatory experience, one that closely relates to and augments our encounters with art elsewhere.”

The selected participants represent the art world’s most creative and inspired curatorial visions from a cross-section of emerging, mid-career and established programs from around the world. Now in its tenth year, Independent has a rotating participant network of over 240 galleries from50 cities worldwide.

Independent is curating a forum that is an authentic reflection of the gallery landscape and encourages innovative approaches to fair presentations. “Independent was founded to focus on the future. We are proud to be known as a place to see an artist or an idea for the first time, that might later take hold in a big way,” explains Elizabeth Dee, co-founder of Independent.

This year’s list has widened to include several galleries in continental North America (west coast, mid-west and Canada), as well as from Asia. Each year, Independent rotates over 30% of its galleries to encourage fresh perspectives and introduce unfamiliar artists to new audiences; this edition’s participants include 21 new exhibitors, ranging from emerging galleries to those with decades-long legacies. In 2019, first-time participants will include Ortuzar Projects, Arcadia Missa, Kai Matsumiya, Take Ninagawa, Parker Gallery, Anglim Gilbert Gallery, COOPER COLE, and moniquemeloche, among others.

Press Release:

Moniker Art Fair is pleased to announce the exhibitors for its second, New York edition, taking place May 1 – 5, 2019 at a new, central location in NoHo ( 718 Broadway). Celebrat­ing its 10th year, the five-day event will feature some of the world’s most renowned urban & contemporary artists and galleries, in booth exhibitions as well as solo presentations and installations.

Moniker’s new NoHo space will host a curated lineup of 28 exhibitors and four Special Projects, hailing from 13 coun­tries around the globe. These are presented in alignment with this year’s theme, Cause & Effect, which examines our shared roles and commitments in addressing the current state of political, social and ecological injustices. New ex­hibitors to this year include: Parlor Gallery from New Jersey, Mazel Galerie from Brussels, Perseus Gallery from New York and 11.12 Gallery from Moscow.

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

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.

Fourth Semi-Annual Spring Pop-Up On All-Handmade Artisanal Market

Sunday, May 12, 10:00 am – 5:30 pm

New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) Kicks Off Its Fourth Semi-Annual Spring Pop-Up On May 12 In Collaboration With Grand Bazaar USA.

Unique pop-up shopping extravaganza will offer a juried selection of one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted, locally made, artisanal crafts and accessories/

New York Handmade Collective (NYHC) in collaboration with Grand Bazaar
100 West 77 Street & Columbus Ave., NY, NY

New York, NY (April 1, 2019) –For the fourth time in partnership with Grand Bazaar USA, the NY Handmade Collective (NYHC) – formerly known as the Etsy NY Street Team – will present “The NY Handmade Collective Pop-Up Spring 2019″.  This dynamic handcrafted product showcase, which will feature a juried selection of the NYHC’s local talent, will take place on Sunday, May 12, 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 Spring shopping experience.”

Shoppers are sure to find a diverse selection of outstanding, one-of-a-kind, exclusively handcrafted merchandise from 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, stationery, unusual jewelry, distinctive fashions, home decor and amazing skincare products to items for children and pets.

“This year’s new and improved market is a rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes, interact with and shop directly from our cadre of diverse, talented local artisans who’ll be offering special discounts and customization options on their unique products which aren’t even available online,” 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

Last year NYHC surveyed over 200 artisans to gather impressions and data on the importance of quality handmade products. At this year’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, that reflect 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. NYHC is also known for its all-volunteer organization dedicated to the promotion and marketing of online selling opportunities on behalf of its members through its wide-ranging press outreach, expansive social media presence, informative blogs and beautiful website.

About Grand Bazaar NYC:

Open year-round and located at 100 West 77th St and Columbus Avenue, Grand Bazaar NYC is one of the oldest and largest weekly curated markets in this city with over 43,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. It is the only market with a social mission for the exclusive purpose of raising much-needed funding for the four neighboring public schools, benefiting over 4,000 children.

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.
