SuperGlue is a not for profit group of young painters, writers, photographers and graphic designers from the New York metropolitan area who believe in the use of art as a vehicle for social activism. Their regard for art as a powerful medium for connecting, supporting, and inspiring communities has shaped the aspirations of this youthful collective.

Old & New, title and theme of the exhibit, emerged from the development of a series of workshops focused on arts in the local senior community. As they work towards the implementation of these workshops, they reflect on temporality and their own sense of time. They seek to engage their viewers into considering the impact of the past alongside the uncertainty, and perhaps, vulnerability of the future.

The show features paintings, photography and lenticular prints, along with an exceptional performance piece connecting the space between old and new.

When:
Old & New will be on view at Broadway Gallery from December 18th, 2007 to December 31st, 2007.
The Opening Reception is Friday, December 21st, from 6-8p.

A guided tour of the vibrant Israeli video art scene. A constant search for new definitions, new memories, new ways of looking.

Special film screening: THE BEACH BOYS
Filmmaker Honi Hameagel examines Israeli masculinity through the lives of three hard-core womanizers at a Tel Aviv beach. From 1975-2005, the director-cinematographer - a reputable avant-garde artist and a womanizer in his own right - followed his close friend Ronny Sagman and two of his pals as they devised new antics for chasing women. The film raises poignant questions about physical and emotional impotence, ethnic inferiority complexes and Israeli/Jewish masculine identity.

[Director: Honi Hameagel. Runtime: 82 minutes. Hebrew with English subtitles. DOCUMENTARY]
