Decorate, Embellish, Adorn


Dates:
Wed Apr 23, 2014 00:00 - Sat May 10, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Con Artist celebrates all of its members with a large group show. Curated by member Aprajita Anand, “Decorate, Embellish, Adorn” invites the collective to produce a monochromatic piece in any medium on a base of one square foot. The result demonstrates the breadth and creativity of the collective’s diverse artists. Con Artists decorate, embellish, and adorn any blank surface to create a mosaic of expressions which encompass their own individual interpretations of beauty.


EVENT

SOUP


Dates:
Wed Feb 19, 2014 20:00 - Wed Feb 19, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

SOUP is about different aspects of the human identity coming together to define our existence. Personal image, social relationships, and the consciousness of the collective organism combine into a simpler, unified form. What appears to be disorganized or random may just be a pattern of a higher level of organization, as of yet indiscernible to the human eye. Four artists' works fold down, fold in, and amalgamate, transforming the gallery space itself into a singular installation with a common narrative between separate pieces. SOUP features the work of Lady Millard, Shaina Yang, Frog Wang, and Jasper Fields.

Beyond the Pale: Valentine's Exhibition at Con Artist Gallery


Dates:
Tue Feb 11, 2014 11:00 - Sun Feb 16, 2014

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Con Artist presents “Beyond the Pale”, a Valentine’s Day show that celebrates love in its most intense manifestations. Love emerges in unexpected places, grows into passion, and not infrequently goes hand in hand with insanity. In “Beyond the Pale” artists showcase the taboo side of infatuation. They explore the twisted connections between affection and violence, the narrative of two young lovers in a struggle against the world, the fervent agony of unrequited devotion, and the awkward ignorance of the martyred saint who gave Western culture its cheesiest holiday.

Opening Party 02.14.14 8pm until late

Lädy Millard, "LUXURY"


Dates:
Wed Sep 18, 2013 20:00 - Wed Oct 02, 2013

Location:
NY, New York
United States of America

Lädy Millard is an artist and a movement.
From her empirical experiences, Lädy Millard “appropriates” common iconography to not only claim her power, but also to reference the pervasive force of its imagery. As a social commentator and street anthropologist, Lädy Millard incorporates the environment to manipulate her audience's view of their reality. Lädy changes our perspective on the definition of "Lädy" itself.

“LUXURY” (A demise of culture and class.) Lädy Millard challenges the viewer’s experiences as a silent reflection of terrorism equating to luxury and “The decay of today’s cultural values.” Selected works include 2 dimensional pieces as well as a digital short shown in an ongoing loop. This is the first time Lädy’s digital work will be seen publicly.
Lädy Millard has been spreading her street anthropology since 2001 and in recent years has displayed work throughout the streets of New York City as well as San Francisco, New Zealand and many more. Although trained in different schools in New York City including the Art Students League, The High School of Art and Design and The Fashion Institute of Technology, Lädy refers to herself as an untrained artist because of her social experiences while attending school.
Recent exhibitions include 111 Minna and other group shows across the country. The "Luxury" show is currently featured in an article about Lädy in the Huffington Post:
