PULSE PROFILES 3PM & 6PM DAILY

A new program that consists of informal talks by artists, curators, and other art professionals on works featured at the fair.

Location: Various (see below)


THURSDAY MARCH 5TH

 

PULSE PROFILES 3 PM

Beatrice Coron, solo artist project for the Museum of Arts and Design

Invisible Cities is an account of marvelous places seen by a traveler. Coron, herself a great traveler, does work that is both exquisitely detailed and monumental, both figurative and abstract, both a work of art and a voyage of discovery that draws the viewer in almost physically.

Location: P-03, PULSE New York, Pier 40

 

PULSE PROFILES 6 PM

Eva Diaz, Curator of the Parsons Student Booth

The Parsons exhibition at PULSE NY combines artworks with a collaborative library. The installation incorporates pieces by each of the over 40 Fine Arts MFA candidates at Parsons, as well as books lent by the students that form an important part of their personal collections. The booth is conceived as a hybrid space that integrates the material culture of the studio with the intellectual culture of the classroom.

Location: P-09, PULSE New York, Pier 40


FRIDAY MARCH 6TH

 

PULSE PROFILES 3 PM

Taylor Baldwin, artist represented by Conner Contemporary Art

Taylor Baldwin's new works for Pulse NY consist of drawings and a large wall-based sculpture. Made entirely out of found or scavenged materials "The Sun Never Sets" is a hand-made replica of the fossil skull of the 10,000 year old ancestor of modern cattle, the Auroch. The recreated fossil is made entirely out of recovered material that will never biodegrade, and will thus enter the geologic record of the Anthropocene, our own fossil era.

Location: E-01, PULSE New York, Pier 40


PULSE PROFILES 6 PM

Constance Marguiles from the Lotus Endowment Fund

By and About Women is a special, limited edition, portfolio of art and poetry by women artists from around the world and the creative writing group of the Lotus House Women's Shelter situated in the heart of the historic African American district of Overtown, one of the poorest neighborhoods in Miami. Lotus House serves approximately 130 women and infants annually, with a holistic, gender specific and innovative format designed to empower women to improve the quality of their lives on every level, achieve greater self sufficiency and transition to permanent homes off the streets. All proceeds from the sale of the portfolio go to the Lotus Endowment Fund, Inc. to secure the financial stability and long term viability of the Lotus House women's shelter.

Location: P-05, PULSE New York, Pier 40


SATURDAY MARCH 7TH

 

PULSE PROFILES 3 PM

Are Mokklebost, artist from Darkness Decends

Having had separate careers in music and art, the piece playing at PULSE NY is an excerpt from his first major audiovisual work: OK. A year from now it will be installed as a permanent light-box installation in a children´s school in Norway, and we will hear the first haunting tunes from this creation myth, based solely on digital-analog synthesizer.

Location: C aisle, PULSE New York, Pier 40

 

PULSE PROFILES 6 PM

Marina Fokidis, curator of PULSE PLAY>

PULSE PLAY> Random Rules explores what YouTube might mean to a certain intellectual community. By asking a selection of prominent and emerging artists to create their own playlists, the notion of the artist is being presented not only as a creator, but also as a curator and collector. The selections will be available simultaneously in the video lounge and online as a YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/randomrules09

Location: C-09, PULSE PLAY> PULSE New York, Pier 40


SUNDAY MARCH 8TH

 

PULSE PROFILES 3 PM

Clifton Childree, artist represented by Galerie Ernst Hilger/Hilger Contemporary

Viewers find themselves at the entrance of what looks to be the remains of an abandoned silent movie theater distressed by nature, asserting its natural self while sinking back into the swamp on which it was built. A decayed slapstick film plays inside, commenting on the 'bait and switch' swampland real estate scams that took place in Miami during the early 1900s.

Location: D-11, PULSE New York, Pier 40
