NYCEDC Launches NYCxDESIGN 2017

May 3 -24, 2017

Taking place a various locations and dates

Program includes hundreds of events throughout the City, 2nd annual NYCxDESIGN Awards, and a brand-new Design Pavilion in Times Square

NEW YORK – New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) today launched the fifth installment of NYCxDESIGN, the City’s official celebration of global design. The expanded

program includes hundreds of events taking place throughout the five boroughs from May 3 – 24, 2017. NYCxDESIGN focuses on the City’s cultural and commercial opportunities, elevates established and emerging design practices and increases local and international awareness of, and appreciation for, design.

In partnership with the Public Art Fund (PAF), this year’s celebration kicked off with a press conference at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The event also featured the opening of Anish Kapoor’s installation, Descension, presented by PAF, as part of its 40th anniversary season. Event speakers included Alicia Glen, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, Cindy Allen, Editorin-Chief, Interior Design magazine, Nicholas Baume, Public Art Fund Director and Chief Curator, internationally renowned artist Anish Kapoor, Eric Landau, President of Brooklyn Bridge Park and Edward Hogikyan, Senior Vice President of Marketing, NYCEDC.

“New York is the global capital of design. NYCxDESIGN showcases our own homegrown talent, brings ideas, art and innovation from all over the world. With more exhibits and partners than ever, this year¹s events are not to miss,” said Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen.

“With events across all five boroughs, we invite New Yorkers and visitors to experience the fifth annual NYCXDESIGN and discover the City’s vibrant design community,” said Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC & Company, the City’s official destination marketing organization. “The three-week celebration has become a must-see among our global visitors as it is a chance to experience the unique innovation, art and creativity only found in New York City.”

Created in 2013 with the support of the New York City Council, NYCxDESIGN has grown in scope and popularity both locally and internationally. The event provides a unifying platform for New York City’s diverse design community and highlights their contributions to the city’s unique cultural fabric and economy while previewing the latest in global design.

NYCxDESIGN programming is informed by a Steering Committee comprised of leaders from the city’s vast design community including numerous city agencies, public organizations, world-renowned museums, and trade organizations.

For 2017, NYCxDESIGN is pleased to have Swiss watchmaker, Rado, return as the Official Watch Sponsor of NYCxDESIGN. As part of its participation, Rado will host its second stateside edition of the Rado Star Prize together with WantedDesign.

The New York City metro area is home to over 7,500 design firms and over 50,000 full-time designers, and more than any other metro area in the US, more than Los Angeles and Chicago combined. Having increased by over 30% in the last decade, design firms generate over $555 million annually in City tax revenue and full-time designers earn $50,000 a year on average, indicating positive opportunities for income mobility. New York City is also home to ten prominent design and architecture schools and graduates twice as many design and architecture students as any other city in the US.

In an effort to expand the global impact of NYCxDESIGN, the program has been represented at a number of international design weeks including Milan, Shanghai, Barcelona, and Tokyo.

Frieze Announces Programs and Highlights for Frieze New York 2017

Taking place on Randall’s Island Park May 5 – 7, the sixth edition to feature ambitious presentations from top international contemporary and 20th century art galleries, curated sections showcasing emerging artists, site-specific artist commissions and talks series

The sixth edition of Frieze New York brings together more than 200 leading galleries from 31 countries, showcasing ambitious presentations and new commissions by today’s most significant international artists from emerging talents to seminal and rediscovered 20th century masters. The fair takes place at Randall’s Island Park from May 5 – 7, 2017, with an invitation-only preview on Thursday, May 4.

Frieze New York is supported by global lead partner Deutsche Bank for the sixth consecutive year, continuing a shared commitment to discovery and artistic excellence.

Presenting museum-quality exhibitions in a bespoke, light-filled structure designed for the experience of art, Frieze New York offers an immersive cultural experience for major institutional and private collectors, scholars and art enthusiasts alike. With galleries joining from six continents, including firsttime exhibitors from Brazil, Guatemala, Japan and Poland, the fair illuminates the aesthetic, political and historical concerns driving contemporary practice around the world.

Organized by Victoria Siddall (Director, Frieze Fairs) alongside Artistic Directors Abby Bangser and Jo Stella-Sawicka, Frieze New York is further strengthened by a team of international independent curators. Toby Kamps (The Menil Collection, Houston) will curate the expanded Spotlight section for the first time; Cecilia Alemani (High Line Art, New York / Italian Pavilion 2017 Venice Biennale) will commission Frieze Projects; and Jacob Proctor (Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, University of Chicago) and Fabian Schöneich (Portikus, Frankfurt) will advise the Frame section. Tom Eccles (Bard College, New York) also returns as curator of Frieze Talks, bringing together leading cultural figures including Shuddhabrata Sengupta of Raqs Media Collective, poet Claudia Rankine and MoMA’s Ann Temkin to deepen discussion of the themes of activism and influences of modernism also seen across the fair.

For the first time, Frieze will present a major symposium in New York City during Frieze Week. In collaboration with the Getty and the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, the symposium on Friday, May 5 will raise discussion on topics related to Latin American and Latino Art featured in the upcoming edition of “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA”.

“Frieze New York continues to evolve, and this year galleries are bringing presentations of greater breadth and quality than ever before, reflecting the diverse cultural interests of our audience,” noted Victoria Siddall (Director, Frieze Fairs). “Following major sales to institutions and private collectors in 2016 – and with Cecilia Alemani’s inspiring projects and Toby Kamps’s new perspective on Spotlight this year – the fair continues to develop as a vital and unique platform for art and ideas.”

Serena Korda’s Missing Time at the High Line
Jun 5 @ 4:00 pm – Jun 7 @ 7:00 pm

Serena Korda :: Missing Time

The artist’s first performance in the United States

June 5, 6, & 7, 2018
4:00 – 7:00 pm

On the High Line between 25th & 27th Streets.

New York, NY (May 29, 2018) — High Line Art is pleased to present Missing Time, a new immersive sound performance by United Kingdom-based artist Serena Korda. Developed for the Falcone Flyover, between 25th and 27th Streets, this newly commissioned work will be performed on June 5, 6, and 7, 2018. Missing Time will be Korda’s first performance presented in the United States.

Serena Korda creates large-scale ensemble performances that frequently combine her ceramic sculptures and sonic investigations. Her sculptural assemblages often become instruments for people to play. There is a playful spiritualism in Korda’s performances, experiments, and gatherings, which treats everything that is unexplained—whether religious, extraterrestrial, or scientific—with the same generous wonder and sincerity.

Missing Time considers the history and mythology of the High Line as a “thin place”—a portal to other worlds—while exploring its transformation and invisible histories. The piece features the a cappella group Mouthful (Dave Camlin, Sharon Durant, Bex Mather, and Katherine Zeserson), who improvise across specific frequencies derived from the planets otherwise known as the “Music of the Spheres.” Simultaneously, the singers carry very low frequency receivers; these are devices designed by amateur radio astronomers hoping to listen to radio waves coming from the sun or outer planets. Visitors experience the singers’ voices and manipulated radio waves through stereo headphones that play a version of the sounds captured through a microphone located under the pathway and mixed by the artist. In Korda’s eyes, “the trains, the industry, and the wilderness that once overran the space are all ghosts, and it is this paranormal activity of the High Line that I wish to explore.”

“We are thrilled to present Serena Korda’s first performance in the United States on the High Line,” says High Line Art Associate Curator Melanie Kress. “Korda’s entire practice centers bringing people together to share in transformative experiences, making her work an ideal fit for this lush public space.”
