'The ART of Comedy' Gallery Crawl - November 8th

As a pre-New York Comedy Festival event, The Art of Comedy presents a Gallery Crawl in SoHo and the LES on Thursday, Nov. 8th to include artist Ron English at Opera Gallery, 115 Spring Street; gilf! at Galerie Swanström, 136 Sullivan Street, 3rd Floor; and Hanksy at Krause Gallery, 149 Orchard Street.

Oh Yeah!  by gilf! 

The artist gilf! depicts herself as The Statue of Liberty in the painting titled Oh Yeah?
which discusses Americans ‘drinking the Kool-Aid’ (so to speak) as our
government, corporations, and police forces may take advantage of a
complacent society. The hand written text quoted in the background is taken
from a speech given by Aldous Huxley in 1962.

From November 7-11th, the duration of the NY Comedy Festival, work by Ron English, gilf! and Hanksy will be on display inside of Carolines on Broadway (1626 Broadway), the legendary Times Square comedy venue.

Wendy Richmond: Navigating the Personal Bubble

Visual artist, writer, and educator Wendy Richmond documents and exposes how portable digital technology creates mobile zones of privacy—what the artist calls “personal bubbles”—that change the social experience of being in public. Using photography, video, and interactive media, she documents and exposes, as she wrote in a New York Times column, “the steady and mundane urban choreography that we all perform together.”

'BREAKING AND ENTERING is a demonstration of UR New York’s vast range and ability to continuously produce groundbreaking urban inspired art. Artists Michael Baca - aka “2ESAE” and Fernando Romero aka “SKI” are committed to “breaking and entering” into the mainstream –“letting their art loose on the world, all the while breaking the status quo and entering the art world on their own terms”– offering a synergy of intensely personal and colorful works of art with an amazingly beautiful and compelling yet universal appeal.' www.popinternational.com/pop.news  December 1st - 15th; 2412 North Miami Ave (@24th Street) • Miami, FL 33127

MIT Museum's group exhibition "5,000 Moving Parts" includes Anne Lilly

This fall I had the opportunity to experience Lilly's newest sculpture, To Conjugate, in the exhibition "5000 Moving Parts" at the MIT Museum, curated by Laura Knott.  The show opened November 21st and will run for one year. It's a great show of kinetic art with sculptures by Arthur Ganson, John Douglas Powers, and Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.

"Anne Lilly has for years made pristine stainless steel sculptures, often featuring several rods connected to gears. They look like machines until they start to dance, tilting and circling in unexpected concert. Two such smaller pieces are here, including one, “To Caress,” which sweetly tickles your hand with swaying fronds of metal. But her new, large-scale interactive work, “To Conjugate,” takes her in new directions.

You’ll need a partner for this one. That grounds it in the nature of relationships, collaboration, and the balance of power. Two people sit back to back in tractor seats, and one by one push up from the floor, as if on a seesaw. The seats connect to a pair of old red flywheels that once helped run a horse-drawn fire engine. With these materials, the artist forsakes the perfect gleam of stainless steel for the patina of antiques, and the whiff of history weaves with the complicated give-and-take of partnering."  Cate McQuaid, The Boston Globe: '5000 Moving Parts' at MIT Museum (Art Review)

The Ghost Of Gold by gilf! Limited Edition Prints & Original Paintings now available on 1xRun.com

The Ghost of Gold by gilf! (detail) 2013, 30 x 20 Inches 3-Color Screen Print On French MuscleTone

Pure White Archival Paper, edition of 50

"These pieces force the viewer to change his or her perspective. When standing directly in front of the work as most people do when examining art the text is convoluted. As the viewer moves past the piece at different angles the words suddenly pop off the wall and become legible. This is an exercise in understanding the world in a different context, from a different viewpoint. Sometimes one must change his or her perspective to see something in it's truest state of reality." - gilf!
