Starrcade


Dates:
Tue Aug 19, 2014 11:00 - Sat Aug 30, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Con Artist presents “Starrcade”, a show about anything and everything related to Professional Wrestling. Seriously. We’re a fine art gallery and we’re having a show about piledrivers, shiny spandex masks, TKOs, and endless tag-team smackdowns. “Starrcade” features work by 10 artists who aren’t trying to be ironic or poke fun at low-brow culture. They’re die hard wrestling superfans who grew up with the sport’s colorful characters and outrageous storylines.

And why shouldn’t we have a wrestling show? The mixture of high art and low art has been fueling the arts for the last century. What is professional wrestling but a gigantic, blue collar performance art piece? Wrestling has an immediately recognizable aesthetic that isn’t quite like anything else. It’s colorful, melodramatic, and flashy. It isn’t afraid to put common ethnic and gender stereotypes on parade.


EVENT

Inside the Box


Dates:
Tue Aug 05, 2014 11:00 - Thu Aug 14, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Are you always burning the midnight oil and keeping your nose to the grindstone to make ends meet? Before you put another nail in the coffin and take one for the team, know that the end doesn’t justify the means.

Artists are usually esteemed for their creativity and innovation. This August at Con Artist we’re celebrating 5 creatives who are démodé and seriously cliché. “Thinking Inside the Box” shows off tchotchkes by artists who aren’t afraid to be a little tacky and who enjoy a good old fashioned pun. Many of the artworks are, in fact, inside of boxes.

Every cloud has a silver lining with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and plenty of fish in the sea. Leave your mark! A picture is worth a thousand words in a Kodak moment in a New York minute. You can’t stop it, you can only hope to contain it.


EVENT

Money Shot


Dates:
Tue Jul 15, 2014 12:00 - Sat Aug 02, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Con Artist presents “Money Shot”, a collection of work from our newest members. A money shot is the flashiest, most awe-inspiring, or most expensive scene of a film (pornographic or otherwise). First impressions are everything, so we’ve asked our new recruits to bring their biggest guns to the table and show off whatever they consider their best work at the moment, their personal money shot (pornographic or otherwise).

Each work is considered to be the most valuable, best executed, or most important piece ever created by the artist themself. It’s not only a show of great work, but also a demonstration of what each artist celebrates and values in their own oeuvre. “Money Shot” creates an opportunity to meet the newest members of the collective and see what they do best.

Femme Fatale


Dates:
Tue May 13, 2014 20:00 - Sat May 31, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Since the dawn of time, women have been constricted from fully showcasing their inner strengths, talents, and intelligence. More than ever before women are being objectified by the media and social platforms, yet there are also strong, empowered women cultivating and sharing their talents. Even though there’s still a long way to go, women are increasingly becoming leaders in the workforce, politics, and the art world.
"Femme Fatale" is a celebration of this feminine power and the rise of the independent, go-getter woman in the new millennium. Women are natural creators; art is their inherent terrain and the landscape upon which their fierce independence can greatly flourish. “Femme Fatale” features work by Polet Guzman, Azure McBride, Sofia Reeser del Rio, and Angela Viens. These female artists strive to celebrate the empowerment of their individual selves in order to truly be the badasses they were meant to be.
