'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

Innovator, artist and curator Billi Kid is combining forces with Sushi Samba at ArtBasel Miami 2011 - Graffiti Gone Global fifth consecutive exhibition of urban contemporary art and design is running parallel to Art Basel Miami Beach.  This year’s show presents the designs of famed architect Marc Fornes, accomplished designer and architect Volkan Alkanoglu, creative artist and curator Billi Kid, innovative digital agency Branger_Briz and the work of other prominent artists who have challenged and continue to challenge the status quo in urban contemporary art and design.

Anne Lilly, The Hole of Rose's Heart,
25 x 18 x 18 inches, machined stainless
steel, 2013
(detail above; full image below)
Galerie Swanström, a contemporary gallery located in the heart of SoHo, announces an opportunity to view new work and meet Boston-based kinetic sculpture artist Anne Lilly at a private opening Friday, March 22nd from 12 Noon to 5 pm, followed by a reception with the artist from 5 to 8 PM at 136 Sullivan Street, 3rd Floor, (between W. Houston and Prince St.)  
Interactive kinetic sculpture artist Anne Lilly uses carefully engineered motion to shift and manipulate our perception of time and space. Her highly ordered and precisely constructed interactive sculptures move in strikingly organic, fluid and mesmeric ways. Lilly's work was a highlight during Art Basel in Miami at SCOPE Art Show in December, and recently debuted to rave reviews in New York during Armory Week at SCOPE Art Show, this March.
 
ABOUT ANNE LILLY
Anne Lilly employs opposing modalities -- analytical and intuitive, rational and emotional -- Lilly's sculptures elicit new connections between the physical space outside ourselves and our own private, psychological domain. They are usually fabricated in machined stainless steel, but require the viewer's touch to initiate movement: pressing clinical qualities against the sensuous response of each piece.

The Hole of Rose's HeartIn 2012, Anne Lilly completed the artist-in-residence at the Art Institute of Boston, and Galerie Swanström presented Lilly’s precise kinetic sculptures at SCOPE Art-Fair during Art Basel in Miami.  In 2011 Lilly was awarded the Blanche E. Colman grant, and in 2010 was nominated for James and Audrey Foster Prize of Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art. She has created public artworks for the Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, MA, the City of Boston’s ParkArts program, and the Fort Point Public Arts Series. Her work was included in the 2007 DeCordova Annual Exhibition, in Lincoln, MA, has been collected by the DeCordova Museum, the Middlebury College Museum of Art, and is held in corporate and private collections internationally. Through competitive selection in 2005 she was awarded a public commission for a large scale sculpture on the Boston Harbor. The Boston Globe named her 2003 FPAC exhibition one of the ten best exhibits of the year.

 
Lilly pays lavish attention to each piece of sculpture, completing one piece at a time, taking many months to finish to meet her own meticulous standard. Instead of sketching out the sculpture's concept and working out the mechanics on paper first, she said her process is actually quite intuitive, through a trial of reconfiguring and refining that she refers to as "Do-Think-Do".  - Frank W. Liu, artscope magazine, January 2013
 
Anne Lilly’s captivating stainless steel sculptures...are so intricately engineered they appear to do magic. Tall rods rising from cylinders planted on gears rush toward each other, bowing, then fall away in one fluid motion. Rotating grills look like they’ll collide, then they miraculously pass. The movement of each sparely designed piece is full of grace and surprise. - Cate McQuaid, Boston Globe, August 2007
