A multidisciplinary artist, she creates performances, installations and drawings. Using building blocks such as words, colors, rhythm, architecture, partners, pop-culture, and personal mythology, Foks adapts her work to the context, space and local environment: the piece emerges as a response to what she finds on site. Walking around in unknown cities without destination, she collect images, local habits and folklore to integrate them into her work and, in the process, shapes her own identity. Foks’ work deals with identity with a focus on desire and how desire produces a new body. <br /> Over the past three years, Foks has shown her work in exhibits and international performance art festivals throughout Europe and the US, including in Paris, Milan, Berlin, Helsinki, Chicago and New York.<br /> <a href="http://www.ariannefoks.com/" rel="nofollow">www.ariannefoks.com</a></p> Mon, 19 Nov 2012 01:12:57 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Rob Nypels - Witzenhausen Gallery - NY - November 22nd, 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Mon, 05 Nov 2012 04:03:47 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Edward Hopper House Art Center - November 23rd, 2012 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM <p><span size="3" face="Calibri" style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: medium;">November 23-December 27,2012</span><span style="text-decoration: underline;"></span><span style="text-decoration: underline;"></span></p> <p><span size="3" face="Calibri" style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: medium;">This holiday seasonEdward Hopper House will be having a Holiday Boutique sale in our gift shopwith art and unique handmade objects by local artists including  Joe Fusaro, Arthur Gunther, JanetHamlin, Joanne Howard, Natasha Rabin, Liz Sayles, Frances Wells,  in our gift shop. </span></p> Thu, 08 Nov 2012 20:17:48 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - ESSL MUSEUM - November 23rd, 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Wed, 18 Sep 2013 19:05:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - New York Historical Society - November 23rd, 2012 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM <p>Magnificent model trains, train stations and sheds, bridges and tunnels, carousels and Ferris wheels&mdash;all populated with toy figurines in colorful nineteenth-century dress, will be on view this holiday season at the New-York Historical Society, in the first museum exhibition of selections from the renowned Jerni Collection.</p> <p>Among the unique, hand-crafted and hand-painted toys will be the only existing first model elevated station.

Isidor Kaufmann’s painting <em>Friday Evening</em> sets the stage: a lone woman in traditional Jewish dress of the eastern Habsburg Empire sits at a Sabbath table. Kaufmann’s impulse was both romantic and ethnographic: to preserve the folkways of a vanishing provincial Jewish culture. <br /><br />To create <em>Laid Table with Etrog Container and Pastry Molds</em>, a commission for The Jewish Museum, Beth Lipman crafted glass replicas of holiday and food-related objects in the museum’s Judaica collection. Here, the table is crowded with functional items, but the people who might use them are absent or invisible—as suggested by the use of transparent glass. Subtle references to mourning scattered among the festive items, convey a sense of joy and sorrow mixed together.<br /><br />Izhar Patkin’s large paper collage <em>Salonière</em> portrays a single-legged tabled arrayed with symbolic Enlightenment-era objects, including a porcelain statuette of a monkey—a reference to a peculiar Prussian law of 1769 that required Jews to purchase porcelain dinner services and figurines in order to obtain official government documents.<br /><br /><em>In Linen</em>, by the Israeli artists’ collective Studio Armadillo, a ghostly tablecloth is suspended above the ground. Dishes, loaves of hallah, a wine bottle, a kiddush cup, and candlesticks—all formed from starched linen—are sewn to it. The Friday evening ceremony marking the beginning of the Sabbath is evoked as a pause for reflection and rest, separating the practical concerns of daily life from the spiritual moment.<br /><br />As these artists recognize, the household table, laden with objects both mundane and precious, can carry a great deal of symbolism. Just as the dining table is transformed into a sacred space by the observance of the Sabbath, so the delicate materials used here—glass, paper, and linen—are transformed into something ethereal and poetic.</p> <p>ABOUT THE ARTISTS<br /><br /><strong>Isidor Kaufmann</strong> (Austrian, b. Hungary, 1853–1921) was known for his portraits and genre paintings of religiously devout Jews in the provinces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He studied at the Budapest Drawing School and the Vienna Academy and received honors from Emperor Franz Josef, as well as the German emperor and the Russian czar. <br /><br /><strong>Beth Lipman</strong> (American, b. 1971) lives and works in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin. Her work in glass, including site-specific installations, is in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Corning Museum of Glass, The Museum of Art and Design, and The Smithsonian American Art Museum, among others. <br /><br /><strong>Izhar Patkin</strong> (Israeli, b. 1955) moved to the United States in 1977 and achieved recognition for his rubber curtain paintings in the 1987 Whitney Biennial. His work, often large-scale installations and series, has been collected by international institutions, including The Museum of Modern Art, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and The Tel Aviv Museum of Art.<br /><br /><strong>Studio Armadillo</strong>, a Tel Aviv-based design collective, was founded by Hadas Kruk (Israeli, b. 1970) and Anat Stein (Israeli, b. 1972), and in 2002 also included Sharon Samish-Dagan (Israeli, b. 1971). Known for its modernist, often whimsical designs for household and industrial objects, it has also produced a line of contemporary Judaica.</p> Sun, 28 Oct 2012 23:05:18 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Max Tzinman - Atlantic Gallery - November 24th, 2012 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><b>New York, NY, 2012 -- Atlantic Gallery presents Max Tzinman's show "Adrift".</b></p> <ul style="text-align: justify;"> <li>548 W 28th Street, Suite 540, New York, NY 10001 - phone: 212 219 3183.</li> <li>from October 30<sup>th</sup> to November 24<sup>th</sup>, Tuesday - Saturday 12 - 6.</li> <li>receptions: Thursday Nov. 1<sup>st</sup>, 4-8 PM &amp; Saturday Nov. 24<sup>th</sup>, 1-5 PM.</li> </ul> <p style="text-align: justify;">This show of recent work invites the viewer to contemplate alienation, anonymity, and the struggle for authenticity and visibility in a group-think world - themes that are explored in much of Tzinman's work.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Tzinman comments that the visible reality rarely reflects the truth.

Out of commission with a broken back and serious concussion, he lost his painting studio, then had parts of his home in Staten Island washed away by Sandy. Still in post-op mode, he has found temporary refuge at NOoSPHERE, which is now serving as Alan’s production site in the run-up to this next installment of his ongoing <i>Living Installation</i> project. Until the 24th, the artist in action will be on live display through our storefront window at night, creating in public view stage sets and props for the upcoming show against a backdrop of projections of previous performances. Every night, something new will be added to the space - <b><i>the countdown is on!</i></b></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><b>And then BOOM...come the 24th.....show time! </b>In Alan’s own words:<b><br /> </b>“<b><i>THANKS-LIVING–</i></b><b><i>The Living Installation</i></b> is rolling on a wave of <b>positive energy</b> from the <i>N.Y.C Healing Show</i> at ABC No Rio this past weekend, and is coming right back to the heart of the city with a brand new show that will take proactive art action to address the energy drain we are all feeling right now and combat it with pure creation. <i>Thanks-Living</i> will explore the natural cycles of life energy <b><i>–</i></b> birth, strength, decay <b><i>– </i></b>and bring about physical, creative and spiritual growth through chaotic and fun transformations. This will be a celebration of living and of letting go; a thanks for living and a show of love for those who are not here. Characters will start out made of flesh, all raw; throughout the course of five hours they will be built out into the space and follow  the cycle of life. New York City is in a strange state of crisis. Battered by disaster and extreme change, we have learned that our strength is in our creativity and our community. Come join us in a celebration of thanks for our greatest gift, the life force that burns within us.

LaChapelle continued photographing figures at two additional wax museums – one in California and one in Nevada – to complete his vision of the collection. With subjects ranging from politicians such as Ronald Reagan, to celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Jackson, to the artist’s depiction of The Last Supper including John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene, Still Life presents eerie compositions of dismembered icons.

Burdick began to donate his entire collection of approximately thirty thousand baseball cards in large batches, along with another 270,000 trade and postcards, to the Museum. Burdick organized the cards into albums—incorporating the sports cards into other contemporary advertising material—over the course of fifteen years in the Print Study Room at the Museum. In compiling the albums he adhered to a strict cataloging system, which he published as the <i>American Card Catalogue</i> in 1939. Burdick's method has become the standard system used by all collectors of early American printed ephemera.</p> <p>The Burdick collection of baseball cards is the most comprehensive collection outside of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and illustrates the history of the game from the dead-ball era at the turn of the nineteenth century to the golden age and modern era of the sport. The selection of cards on display represents a broad overview of baseball cards produced as advertisements by tobacco, candy, and gum companies between 1889 and 1959.</p> Mon, 26 Nov 2012 02:01:28 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Josiah McElheny, Camille Henrot - International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) - November 27th, 2012 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Brooklyn Commons, a new discussion series beginning this fall at ISCP, presents intellectual and artistic pairings between the established Brooklyn-based artist community and ISCP residents. This series puts artists in conversation who have not shared a dialogue in the past and focuses on the vibrant and diverse cultural practitioners living and working in Brooklyn, both long-term and short-term.</p> <p>Josiah McElheny and Camille Henrot will discuss historical narratives and conceptual gestures that can be generated through craft making and objects. McElheny’s highly detailed and finely made glass objects often reflect cultural meaning and memory, taking the form of “historical fiction”—which he offers to the viewer to believe or not. Henrot’s impure, hybrid objects cast doubt upon the linear and partitioned transcription of Western history and highlight its borrowings and grey areas. In her series of sculptures <em>Endangered Species</em>, Henrot has created objects inspired by African art by using pieces from car engines, these slender silhouettes with zoomorphic allure make reference to the migration of symbols as well as to the economic circulation of objects.<br /><br />Josiah McElheny is an artist best known for his handmade glass objects combined with photographs, text, and museological displays. Whether recreating miraculous glass objects pictured in Renaissance paintings or modernized versions of non-extant glassware from documentary photographs, McElheny’s work takes the object, idea, and social nexus of glass as its subject. McElheny’s work has been exhibited internationally including MoMA in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, White Cube in London, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid. In 2006, he was a recipient of the MacArthur Fellows Program.<br /><br />Camille Henrot is a French artist based in Paris and in New York. Her work has been exhibited in France at the Centre Pompidou, Paris Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo, Jeu de Paume, Cartier Foundation, Louis Vuitton CulturalSpace, and Foundation Maeght, and abroad at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Sculpture Center in New York, Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, Center for Contemporary Images in Geneva, Hara Museum in Tokyo and OiFuturo Cultural Center in Rio de Janeiro. Her films have been shown at Views from the avant-garde in the New York Film Festival, Quinzaine des Réalisateurs in the Cannes Festival, International Festival of Rotterdam, RIDM of Montreal and the Festival Hors Pistes of the Centre Pompidou in Paris. In 2010, Camille Henrot was nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp, and in 2013 she will be a recipient of the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship in Washington DC.</p> Mon, 26 Nov 2012 23:23:03 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list
