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.

Second Annual 24-Hour Game Presented by Degree Deodorant

#SoccerNeverSleeps kicks off on

to
4:00 pm on March 9, 2019

2nd annual 24-hour-long soccer game will take place in Rockefeller Plaza from 4:00 p.m. on March 8 until 4:00 p.m. on March 9. NYCFC players and coaches will participate in the game, and more than 700 New Yorkers will have a chance to play throughout the game, free of charge.

NEW YORK, N.Y., February 27, 2019 – New York City FC and Rockefeller Center today announced that they will host the second annual 24-Hour Game, which will be presented by Degree Deodorant – the only antiperspirant with motion activated freshness – in front of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Once again, 700+ New Yorkers will come together to play a soccer match on the iconic Plaza and will have the opportunity to be coached by NYCFC players and Head Coach Domènec Torrent in the middle of Manhattan.

Registration to play in last year’s game was entirely filled on launch day. With 714 player participants and more than a half-million attendees, the game ended with a score line of 415-382 goals.

In anticipation of the Club’s 2019 home opener on Sunday, March 10 vs. D.C. United, this year’s participants will be divided into two teams: Team Ring (led by NYCFC Captain Alex Ring) vs. Team Maxi (with last year’s fan-favorite and 2018 team MVP, Maxi Moralez, at the helm).

The 2019 24-Hour Game presented by Degree will kick off with an Opening Ceremony at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 8 and will conclude at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 9. City Members will get exclusive access to the first and last hour of the game alongside special guests. Designed to encourage soccer fans to play more, move more and live more, the 24-Hour Game aligns with Degree’s mission to bring movement opportunities to the masses in 2019 and beyond. Since Degree believes the more you move, the more you live, the brand thoughtfully develops antiperspirants that react directly to movement, keeping users fresher, longer.

The five-on-five game will continue for 24 straight hours with participants on rotation. Domènec Torrent and select NYCFC players are scheduled to lend their coaching skills to participants during the start of the event. In addition, there will be DJs, emcees and a sideline reporter entertaining the crowd with prizes and other surprises taking place throughout. A kids’ hour will take place from 11am-12pm on Saturday, March 9 with Sesame Street characters joining the fun.

Fans that register in advance and are selected to participate will receive an exclusive buy-one- get-one ticket offer for the home opener on Sunday, March 10 at Yankee Stadium when the Boys in Blue take on Wayne Rooney and D.C. United. Special 24-Hour Game ticket offers will be available onsite during the event so all fans can join NYCFC at the home opener and other home games this season.

Registration for time slots to play is now open at www.24hourgame.com. Walk-up registration during game time is also available onsite. During the general game hours, players must be 18+ years of age, but all are invited to attend the event. Children participating in the kids’ hour on Saturday morning will be split into three age groups: 5-7, 8-12 and 13-17. Join the conversation on social using #SoccerNeverSleeps and check out last year’s highlight video here.

CEO of NYCFC, Brad Sims, shared his thoughts on the upcoming event:

“For the second year in a row, NYCFC will be at the heart of the five boroughs to rally the City and bring New Yorkers together around soccer. We have the privilege of representing The City That Never Sleeps – so we are harnessing the energy of New York City by hosting our annual 24-Hour Game and inviting everyone to come out and play or join us in celebrating the start of the 2019 season.

“It’s only fitting that we kick off our fifth season at a landmark that’s as rooted in the City’s history as Rockefeller Center.”

Tishman Speyer Managing Director overseeing Rockefeller Center, EB Kelly, said:

“Rockefeller Center long has been one of New York City’s most incredible urban spaces, but thanks to events like this, the Center also has become one of its most beloved parks. Along with the Channel Gardens, public art offerings, and open spaces throughout the plazas, we strive to create an engaging environment for guests to enjoy outdoor space, all in the heart of midtown Manhattan. We’re thrilled to welcome NYCFC back to ‘our park’ at Rockefeller Center this year.”

NYCFC Captain, Alex Ring, also commented on the momentum around soccer in the City and this year’s Team Ring vs. Team Maxi matchup:

“Soccer brings people together and it has been great to see New York City get so excited about our sport and NYCFC. I am looking forward to seeing the crowd come out for this year’s 24-Hour Game.

“I am especially proud that one of the two teams will wear my name this year. I expect to help coach my team to get the win and I expect that we will score more than the 415 goals scored by the winning team last year at Rock Center.”

NYCFC Midfielder, Maxi Moralez, continued:

“I can’t wait for my team to face Team Ring. I hope to lead my team to victory. It’s really exciting to get to see soccer played on such a big stage and for such a long time.”

It’s worth 2.9 million dollars, and it has created quite a buzz in intellectual circles. The center of attention is a brief missive written by Albert Einstein, nicknamed “the God Letter,” that was recently auctioned by Christie’s and purchased for that amount. Written in 1954, a year before his death, it summarizes Einstein’s thoughts about God as well as his Jewish identity.

Einstein’s views on religion, I contend, should be of great interest to Ethical Culturists. On the one hand, he vehemently denied belief in a supernatural God, yet proclaimed that he was deeply religious. While this assertion may seem like a contradiction to most of the public, it places Einstein within the territory occupied by many, if not most, Ethical Culturists. Hence, an understanding of Einstein’s religious thought, and how he understood himself to be religious can help us clarify our own.

This is what I intend to do in my talk on “Einstein’s Religion” on March 10th I look forward to seeing you then.

Oceans help make life on Earth possible. So if there are oceans beyond Earth, do living things exist on those worlds? This is a question that NASA scientists are trying to answer. We know that water exists on moons, dwarf planets and even comets. Ice, water vapor in the atmosphere and oceans on other worlds offer clues in the quest to discover life beyond our home planet.

Join NASA engineer Todd Barber and astrobiologist Laurie Barge from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as they discuss a strong candidate for further study– Europa, one of Jupiter’s 53 moons.

Between interviews, original comedy sketches keep the atmosphere upbeat and energized. We’ve featured chefs, small business owners, social media influencers, publicists, sommeliers, and more. The show was born out of our shared love of food, comedy, and creating a sense of community for our audience.

She won the fictitious award for Most Likely To Make Friends on the Train and has actually been nominated Best Director 2018 for Leurana (by Enrique Huili). Deby’s been asked back to Dartmouth College (her alma mater) seven times to direct, emcee, and produce live events because she can collaborate with a wide-range of skill sets. She’s assisted Broadway Director Gabriel Barre on Billy Elliot in Mexico City and designed a writer’s workshop for playwright, Elise Wien, in preparation for Corkscrew Festival in NYC.

Luke works at Barbara Whitman Productions as Barbara’s Associate Producer, where he helps shepherd plays and musicals to the Great White Way. Luke has spent his life as a performer and director in everything ranging from Shakespeare, musical theatre, and improv comedy at Chicago’s Improv Olympic. On any given day or night you can likely find Luke at the theatre or huffing and puffing on a strained run along the Hudson. He has strong opinions about the most authentic Italian cuisine in New York, so just don’t even bring it up. For your own sake. Trust him on this.
