Luminous Opera


Dates:
Thu Jul 05, 2012 20:00 - Wed Jul 18, 2012

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Rachael Senchoway's “Luminous Opera” reorders experience. Neons, glitter, and polka-dots gild references to Toulouse-Lautrec and Fragonard. Fantasy elements are synthesized through ambiguous time periods - frosted with decadence and kitsch, sprinkled with Victorian wigs and prissy Rococo faces. Rachael Senchoway seeks to free images from their historical confines, to re-contextualize and disorient dated themes. Senchoway wants her work to be unabashedly itself, no matter how fleeting.

@ Con Artist Gallery, 119 Ludlow St. Lower Level

Improvise Combustion


Dates:
Sat May 26, 2012 06:00 - Wed Jun 13, 2012

Location:
New York City, New York
United States of America

Improvise Combustion is a show concept to liken the visual medium to a group jazz ensemble. For this particular session, soloists perform as a single form or band unit, an opportunity for the artists to re-unite and re-ignite collaborative connections. There is no head or tail but rather like an organic landscape, a sound-scape and visual-scape that embraces and connects to create and unfold a story of improvising magicians unleashing and expressing for the sake of creating. The end result is a story of atoms colliding and energy bursting, creating chaotical in the midst of controlled expressions, ultimately, an 'Improvise Combustion'.

This show is about unity, society and true collaboration among old friends from different parts of the world. Some are friends from childhood, having a connection of shared experiences and roots that run deep, but only separated by physical proximity and time. Despite a decade of collaborating, somehow in all this time, this particular group has never individually fully connected to concert a single collaborative show concept, until now.

Improvise Combustion


Dates:
Sat May 26, 2012 20:00 - Wed Jun 13, 2012

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

Improvise Combustion is a group show organized by member Chris Mendoza, featuring a collection of collaborations and new work by Michael Miyahira aka Mike Ming, Kenji Hirata, Pablo Power, & Naomi Kazama.

Improvise Combustion is a show concept to liken the visual medium to a group jazz ensemble. It is the two day studio session of soloists to perform as a single form, a band unit, similar to the work of great improvisational musicians. For this particular session, it is an opportunity for the artists to re-unite and re-ignite collaborative connections. The end result is an opening featuring the mural canvas, or perhaps the bands melodies and rhythms, as the rest of the gallery space is transformed to the soloist's moods and collaborations.

These artists are old friends from different parts of the world, and are only able to connect because of travel timing. Some are friends from childhood, having a connection of roots that run deep, having shared experiences and the support of each other over a long period of time, but sometimes only separated in physical proximity and time. Despite a decade of collaborating, somehow in all this time, this particular group has never individually fully connected to concert a single collaborative show concept, until now.

This show is about unity, society and true collaboration. There is no head or tail but rather like an organic landscape, a sound-scape and visual-scape that embraces and connects to create and unfold a story of improvising magicians unleashing and expressing for the sake of creating. This is the story of atoms colliding and energy bursting creating chaotical in the midst of controlled expressions, ultimately, an 'Improvise Combustion'.

Finally Naomi and Strange are on a live screen printing tour, and will set up outside "Improvise Combustion" for some unique live screen printing. More details to come soon when we have the exact date and time.
