(New York, NY) – Affordable Art Fair NYC is pleased to announce a full series of programming highlighting emerging talent and thoughtfully curated exhibitions on view this fall at the Metropolitan Pavilion from September 27 to 30, 2018. In addition to showcasing original contemporary art, featuring over 400 artists exhibited by 74 international and national galleries, Affordable Art Fair NYC’s curatorial programs encourage visitors to experience and engage with special artist presentations.

The Young Talent Exhibition is a dedicated platform that supports emerging artists and curators within the contemporary art community. This fall, Affordable Art Fair NYC will present a solo exhibition by New York-based and self-taught photographer, painter, and mixed-media artist Chase Hall, curated by Lolita Cros. A native Parisian, Cros has been making waves as an independent curator with her unorthodox venue choices and unique visual lens. She is currently curator and art consultant for The Wing co-working and community spaces designed for women.

“We are excited to be giving a platform to such a multifaceted and critical artist like Chase Hall,” says Vanessa Seis, Fall Fair Director, Affordable Art Fair NYC. “His work is extremely relevant in that it addresses the visual history of racial bigotry in the United States, and I hope that this exhibition will stimulate powerful conversation among our visitors.”

Affordable Art Fair NYC’s Limited Edition Print, a print series in collaboration with a commissioned artist made exclusively for the fall edition, will feature a collection of 10 limited edition artworks by London-based artist Adam Bridgland. The screen print with spray paint overlays is a love letter to the urban wilderness that is New York City, and a thematic continuation of a sculptural work Bridgland created earlier this year.

The Curatorial Excellence Award (FKA Best Booth Award) is a continued initiative presented by Affordable Art Fair NYC to highlight thoughtful and engaging gallery presentations. The award will be granted to an exhibition of curatorial distinction and the gallery will receive automatic acceptance into the following fall edition. The winner will be selected by a notable jury including Annelien Bruins, CEO of Tang Art Advisory, Wendy Goodman, Design Editor at New York Magazine and Design Hunting, Julia Halperin, Executive Editor at Artnet, and Melanie Kress, Associate Curator for High Line Art.

Affordable Art Fair NYC expresses great appreciation to its fair partners this fall, including New Camerata Opera, The Art Therapy Project, Butterfield Catering, The Non-Violence Art Project, Van Gogh Vodka, Austin Eastciders, ShortStems, Reed Photographic, TBS Tramo, Yotel New York and SPACE design + production.

La Escuelita To Hold 15th Annual Book Fair
Dec 5 @ 8:30 am – Dec 6 @ 4:30 pm

La Escuelita To Hold 15th Annual Book Fair

December 5 – 6, 2018

Celebrate the bilingual community and a rich cultural heritage with hundreds of the latest and best Spanish language children’s books.

NEW YORK (October 15, 2018) – La Escuelita, Manhattan’s oldest dual-language Spanish-English preschool, will be holding its annual La Escuelita Book Fair/Feria del Libro on Wednesday, December 5th, and Thursday, December 6th, from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

La Escuelita first held the popular book fair, which is open to the public, in 2003. Now in its 15th year, the fair continues with its mission of providing families with affordable, high-quality Spanish language children’s books. At the two-day event, children, parents and educators will have the opportunity to discover new stories and share treasured favorites in an atmosphere that fosters the school’s connection with the wider bilingual community. The vast majority of books—which have been selected by La Escuelita’s early childhood educators—will be priced under $10, and most are not available from traditional booksellers. The books featured are designed for infants through Grade 6. Bank Street Bookstore and Chau, Luna will also be selecting and consigning special inventory.

The fair will feature a free story-time area, where children, teachers and parents can read their favorite Spanish-language books together. Refreshments and baked goods will also be available. All funds raised will benefit La Escuelita’s Staff Development. Fund, which allows La Escuelita teachers to continue their education and thereby enhance New York’s dual-language learning community.

La Escuelita Book Fair/Feria Del Libro is one of our favorite events at the school, because it brings the local Spanish dual-language community together for a great cause: bi-literacy!” notes Kelley Grant, Executive Director of La Escuelita. “Parents whose children attend Spanish dual-language programs in the city, teachers in Spanish dual-language programs, parents who homeschool, teachers in foreign language departments, parents and grandparents who want to ensure that the next generation maintains their connection to the Spanish language and their home countries’ cultures—everyone is united in their appreciation of quality books in Spanish.” Educational Director Emily Marmolejos adds, “For me, there’s just no substitute for the smell, crispness and warmth of reading a book. Our book fair encourages children to explore, wonder and connect through the magic of high-quality Spanish language books.”

The fair is being held at La Escuelita, located at 225 W. 99th Street (between Broadway and Amsterdam).
For more information, please contact La Escuelita at (212) 877-1100, or on the web at https://www.LaEscuelitaNYC.org.

NAI-NI CHEN Dance Company’s Year of the Pig Celebration at NJPAC
Feb 2 – Feb 3 all-day

NAI-NI CHEN DANCE COMPANY

Announce Guest Artist Line-Up for the

Year of the Pig Celebration at NJPAC

February 2 – 3, 2019
at 2:00 pm

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company will celebrate the end of the Chinese Zodiac cycle with a special program steeped in symbolism and virtue, expressing the Company’s commitment to the art and the culture of the community. For the occasion, the company has invited several world-renowned artists to join its program

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company announces a colorful and vibrant special Chinese New Year Celebration at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), 1 Center Street, Newark, NJ 07102, on Saturday and Sunday, February 2 and 3, 2019 at 2pm. Tickets are $17-35 and are available by phone at (888) GO-NJPAC or online at https://www.njpac.org/events/detail/year-of-the-pignai-ni-chen-dance-company.

This year, Nai-Ni Chen bring a new Bamboo themed production aimed to take audiences beyond cultural boundaries. Nai-Ni Chen chose bamboo as a theme to celebrate the Year of the Pig.

Why Bamboo? First, the Chinese phonetic sound for Bamboo is Zu, is similar to the sound for pig (Zu). Second, and perhaps more important, is because Bamboo is the most celebrated plant in Chinese culture. As far as 1000 years ago, during the Sung Dynasty (960-1269), noted for art and literature and philosophy, scholars have used bamboo as a symbol for the resiliency, humility, and honesty to inspire each other. The great poet and Literati, Su Dong Po said “I cannot live a day without bamboo”.

According to Nai-Ni Chen; in the current social and political climate, artists, like the scholar of the past generations, needs encourage their fellows and communities that moral character of humility, honesty and resiliency needs to be held at the highest no matter which way the wind blows. Art is what defines us as a society and civilization, and these traditional and contemporary dances she has created and choreographed, advocates for the cultural values and morality that she, as a female Chinese immigrant artist, brings to the United States. In this wonderful time of celebration of the end of the Zodiac cycle, she has prepared a festive and colorful experience that everyone can enjoy and yet carries the message of culture and value that we all share in common.

 

The Year of the Pig is expected to be a festival year of great abundance and prosperity. To celebrate the Year of the Pig, the Company has developed a rich and fantastic program that incorporates many positive aspects of Chinese and Chinese American immigrant culture in the program. Beside the remarkably acrobatic and beautiful dances, the Company has also invited special guest artists: Bamboo Flute master Tao Chen, Peking Opera artist Yun-Hong Jia, and paper cut master Hotien Cheng.

 

Tao Chen: An internationally acclaimed Chinese bamboo flutist, music educator, composer and

conductor of Chinese orchestra, is the founder and director of the Melody of Dragon, Inc.. He was the artistic director and conductor of the Chinese Music Ensemble of New York and conductor of New Jersey Buddha’s light Youth Chinese Orchestra. He is also the 27th generation musician of Zhi-Hua Buddhism Music. The New York Times called Chen Tao, a “poet in music” and his playing “a miracle of the oriental flute.” Conductor Herbert Von Karajan praises him as an artist who “performs with his soul.” Chen Tao is a graduate and former Associate Professor at the prestigious Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. He was the winner of the 1989 National Folk Instrument Competition in China and has toured throughout U.S., Germany, Italy, France, England, Holland, Finland, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macao. He has collaborated with the BBC Philharmonic and the Notional Orchestra of Lyon. His playing can be heard on several soundtracks of Hollywood movies including Seven Years in Tibet, Corrupter (with the New York Philharmonic) and on the PBS documentary Under the Red Flag.

 

Yong-Hong Jia is a professional Kunqu and Peking opera performer trained in the Beijing Kunqu Academy and performed principal roles in the Beijing Kunqu Opera Theatres in Beijing for many years. Ms. Jia was invited by New York Lincoln Center Festival to perform one of the principal roles in The Peony Pavilion in 1999 and performed in the subsequent tours, in France, Italy, Denmark, Australia, and Singapore. After the tour, she appeared in Beijing opera and Kunqu in major theatres and Chinese communities across North America. Aside from her stage appearances, Ms. Jia also starred in many award-winning movies and TV productions in China. She is currently serving as the President of Renaissance Chinese Opera Society in New York City.

Learn more at this official page here…

Your family will love:

Storytelling: Listen to the legend of Nien, hear about the Chinese zodiac, learn the many ways we celebrate the 15 days of the Lunar New Year, and discover the traits of 2019’s Pig.

Crafts: Kids can make a lion’s head to ward off evil spirits, create a hong bao envelope to give and receive special treats, and practice writing chun lian and fu dao with Chinese characters.

Parade: Families can join the parade to the NY Chinese Scholar’s Garden (weather permitting) and hear cymbals, drums, and pop-it firecrackers scare off evil spirits.

Food: Enjoy a tasting of traditional foods like dumplings, spring rolls, niangao, and chrysanthemum tea. The pronunciation of niangao sounds like ‘year high,’ which symbolizes a higher income, a higher position, the growth of children, and generally the promise of a better year. It is considered good luck to eat it during the Lunar New Year period.

Adults without kids can also participate in this immersive cultural celebration. With Ben Ng, our educator in Chinese calligraphy, you’ll enjoy more grown-up artistic activities like ink wash painting, chun lian writing, plus entry to the NY Chinese Scholar’s Garden and warm refreshments.

Be extra festive and wear red and gold when you come to Snug Harbor to celebrate theLunar New Year with us.  Gung hay fat choy!

Chinese Lunar New Year Fireworks 2019

Monday, February 11, 2019

We couldn’t make it ourselves but looks like this one source (New China TV) knows something which no one else except ‘Fireworks by Grucci’ appeared to know…and us, who paid attention to the Grucci site.

Taking place on the Hudson River off the west side of Manhattan in Midtown presumably across from the Chinese Consulate at and around 44th Street.

Although we’ve yet to get a response from the fine folks at Fireworks by Grucci, it is their site listing from which we first got word that this year’s great pyrotechnic display would be taking place on that day.

Up until this day, the eve of the supposed fireworks, no one else had any related listings. We’re hoping they actually do take place on Monday, February 11. Regardless, last year’s affair was pretty impressive. We were there and it was quite the ‘blast’! 🙂

Should you wish to view last year’s fireworks, you can visit this page wherein we’ve posted the video we’d taken.

ABOUT PS3 

The first public school known as PS3 was established in the 1820s, when the visiting Marquis de Lafayette toured this model of progressive American education. The current PS3, also known as the John Melser Charrette School, was founded in 1971 as a progressive and experimental school. The PS3 of today came into being through a community workshop process known as a charrette, at which parents and other community members, teachers, administrators, public officials, social planners, and educational consultants arrived at a vision of child-centered learning in open multi-age classrooms, with a nonhierarchical structure, active parent involvement, and an emphasis on the arts.

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.

SPECIAL EXHIBITION

How should the photography world respond to the times in which we live? “A Room for Solace,” a special exhibition curated by Alec Soth for The Photography Show, will feature scenes of domestic interiors that speak to the possibility of finding refuge during turbulent times. Comprising portraiture, still life, and reportage chosen from exhibiting galleries, what connects these pictures is a quality of intimacy. Says Soth, “With this exhibition, I want to take a break from the fractious public square of photography and wander quietly into people’s homes. Behind these doors I hope to find a sliver of solace in these unstable times.”
