Artist Rainer Ganahl’s daring project takes place tomorrow afternoon on the streets of Paris. Don’t be surprised if you see a bicyclist going the wrong way during rush hour traffic along the Boulevards.

Of a Technical Nature is a group exhibition that explores the increasingly integrative relationship between natural and technological systems and questions where this evolving relationship might take us.
Presenting works from AMOA-Arthouse’s collection, as well as work by local, national, and international emerging and mid-career artists, the exhibition will touch on themes of optimism and unease related to technological progress, invention, and evolution while also calling attention to the diminishing barrier between nature and technology.
Artists in Of a Technical Nature include: Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Steve Brudniak, Peat Duggins, Buckminster Fuller, Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, Jessica Halonen, Young-Min Kang, Phillip Makanna, Jamie Panzer, Lordy Rodriguez, Rick Silva, Joel Sternfeld, and Barry Stone. Stone will also have a curated project featured in the upcoming issue of zingmagazine, set for release this Spring.
Of a Technical Nature is organized by AMOA-Arthouse and curated by Sean Ripple, curatorial assistant.

The depiction of resurrection is inherently one of spectacle whether violent or rapturous, but perhaps none yet have captured the multifaceted cross-cultural substance of the story wherein the soul returns to the body. Choreographer, Stephen Petronio and performance artist,Janine Antoni, along with collaborators Son Lux, Francisco Núñez, H. Petal, and Ken Tabachnick, will attempt to bring such an ambitious vision to the stage of The Joyce Theater this week in a pastiche that includes Petronio’s all but body-breaking movements and Antoni’s sharp, visceral conceptual sensibilities. The complex — and demanding — arrangement will feature Antoni suspended on a helicopter stretcher in meditation above the audience before and during the dance performance. Hung around her figure will be some 25 milagros, replicas of her skin and bones that are posed in positions and gestures Petronio’s dancers will take. The dance performance itself will present symbol of regeneration as well as glimpses of resurrection narrative, sultry, tortured compositions to American slave hymns as well as fracturing juxtapositions.

This past weekend marked the end of an era, with Hunter MFA’s final hurrah at 450 W 41st. I’ll save the eulogizing for Hunter students and alumni, and spare the readers any grand metaphor about New York City, but personally I’ve always enjoyed visiting this space. After braving the transience of Port Authority and what has to be the most dangerous intersection in New York (with road raged traffic direct from the gaping maw of the Lincoln Tunnel), you arrive at a run down be-scaffolded building with the look of a former school, or prison. Stairwells covered in cerebral (and not cerebral) graffiti; temporary walls abounding; old maps, job preparation handouts, and school-kid poetry left as relics of multi-usage. Studios containing cubicles. A lot of, wait is this a studio, art, or not? It’s makeshift to the point of confusion, but in all the right ways. Open Studios were especially fun nights, with emerging artists eager to discuss their work with any stranger to enter their domain, offering beer, wine, a shot, pretzels, cookies, weird cheese, pork tacos, doritos, and a multitude of other drinks and snacks, depending on who you buddied up with. You’d walk out drunk, full, and wise to new art, perhaps having met the next Wade Guyton (a Hunter alum).
Rachel Dalamangas, Robert Cunningham, and myself ventured out last Friday night to see what’s what at the “final” Hunter MFA Open Studios.
Here are photos. It probably would have been wise to get the artists’ names, but that didn’t happen. If you’d like more info any in particular, pull the image and send it to email@example.com. Maybe they can help you locate their corresponding artist.
This is the one artist I know. Jennifer Grimyser. Girl’s got skills to pay the bills. http://www.jennifergrimyser.com/. That’s what’s up.
Tropical plants. Computers. Yes.
I immediately liked these paintings…
…but seeing the artist dressed up like one really sealed the deal. Shout-out to Jenny G. and I want to say Rachel’s hand photo-bombing.
