ARTECHOUSE invited us to another exclusive preview to experience a new immersive installation called Intangible Forms by Shohei Fujimoto!

This time, the new fully immersive visual experience is a multi-sensory, abstract journey into the known and unknown of the world around us. It opens to the public on March 3rd.

Not only is the installation is amazing, but additionally they created custom cocktails. Get ready for this multi-sensorial experience that will instigate all your senses.

So, take a look below to see what it’s all about and guarantee your tickets!


About Intangible Forms:

The multi-sensory installation is abstract in nature and minimalist in form. It reveals to the viewer the elaborate and invisible systems that underlie our reality, making visible the powerful forces that shape our every moment.

The results are dramatic, visceral, almost operatic in nature. It invites guests to exist in a space and time all its own, for the duration of the visit. 1 Light, time, and autonomy are recurring motifs that travel throughout the installation. Coded operations serve as a building block for Fujimoto’s process of exploration.

Often, Fujimoto refers to code and the mathematical operations as the invisible markers that create form. Sculpting imagery not in a particular shape, but sculpting the mathematical operations behind the image to give shape. Both intricate and alluring, Fujimoto’s works are prime examples for a new way of drawing and creating visual artworks.

In addition, the centerpiece installation invites us to see the intangible as tangible using kinetic laser modules set in a hazy soundscape.

But, what is it all about?

”I’ve been trying to generate virtual consciousness and, in extension, virtual life in this work, triggering a deeper sense of humanity in ourselves” – shares Fujimoto.

This central idea continues through a series of four more works spread throughout the space. All of which are created to exist in their own time axis with limited functionality, that imitate life phenomena around us.

“I hope by the end of their visit, the guests are able to focus on their own universal sense of being.”

A Night of Opera: Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi

Entertainment Events Up Coming A Night of Opera Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi

Faymous presents A Night of Opera: Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi with stars of the Opera world at one of NYC’s most legendary nightlife venues!


GET TICKETS!

For one-night-only, Rebecca Fay Walsh and Faymous Productions presents A Night of Opera with an immersive modern interpretation of the classic Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi.

Staged against the iconic backdrop of The Box NYC, one of NYC’s most legendary nightlife venues. It will be performed by some of Opera’s most notable performers — including a former NY Yankee.

Tickets start at $50/person and all proceeds will go the Sing for Hope.


SYNOPSIS: Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi

“Rigoletto’s” a seemingly innocuous pizza shop run by a famed deformed clown, Rigoletto, is actually a store front for Sicilian mob boss, “the Duke,” who uses the venue as an actual speak easy to operate his drug distribution efforts.

The unsavory scene is a playground for the Duke’s depraved behavior, where a father’s curse destroys everything that Rigoletto holds dear.

ABOUT SING FOR HOPE:

Sing for Hope uplifts lives by unleashing creativity in under-resourced schools, healthcare facilities, refugee camps, transit hubs, and public spaces.

Furthermore, their work ranges from art workshops that improve academics for at-risk students to specialized music programs that enhance cognition for dementia patients, to arts interventions that facilitate integration for refugee youth, to the Sing for Hope Pianos that unite communities in our world’s public spaces.

BACKSTORY:

About producer Rebecca Fay Walsh, aka Faymous, and her inspiration for creating alternative theatrical platforms and is “exposing Opera to a new audience and preserving this unique art form for years to come.”

“FAYMOUS was founded by Rebecca Fay Walsh, an Opera singer in New York City. “Fay,” a rising star in the Opera world, had been recognized many times by the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions for her soprano voice.

In addition, when she arrived in New York City to pursue her career on stage, she was equipped with another tool beyond her voice; a recently purchased a DSLR Canon camera. Thanks to the ease and intuitive nature of the Canon cameras, Fay became a highly sought after portrait photographer in a matter of months, pulling her career trajectory in an unexpected direction.

Also, her talents garnered the attention of Emerald Gruin, the gallery director of the ROX Gallery on the lower east side where she was offered an artist residency.

During this time, Fay documented many of the greatest stars in the Opera world, not limited to Diana Damrau, Isabel Leonard, Ailyn Perez, Jamie Barton, Matthew Polenzani, and Sing for Hope founders, Monica Yunus & Camille Zamora.

Moreover, Emerald encouraged Fay to deepen her relationships with these exceptional artists by offering the gallery as a recital platform. Fay’s concept was to expose a new audience to these artist’s voices in a pure and exposed manner juxtaposed against the backdrop of a notoriously edgy contemporary art gallery.

After an Opera showcase, Opéra ROX, featuring Isabel Leonard and other stars of the Metropolitan Opera, FAYMOUS was born.

Lastly, FAYMOUS continues to maintain the spirit of this first performance, promoting classical singers and Opera by creating alternative platforms in New York. In building these platforms, Fay hopes to foster a new generation of Opera lovers, preserving this unique art form for years to come.”

ARTECHOUSE invited us to an exclusive preview to experience a new immersive installation called SUBMERGE!

This new fully immersive visual experience was inspired by “19-4052 Classic Blue” as the Pantone Color of the Year 2020 and opened to the public this week!

“PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue encourages us to look beyond the obvious to expand our thinking; challenging us to think more deeply, increase our perspective, open the flow of communication and connect to others.”

“Imprinted in our psyches as a restful color, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, offering refuge. Moreover, this multi-sensory installation seeks to do the same as the color itself, centering our thoughts, aiding concentration and fostering resilience while immersing visitors into a realm of boundless blue, evocative of the infinite evening sky at dusk, the vastness of deep, serene ocean waters, and the limitless reflections in the rain.”

We have to agree that this color is truly calming and smoothing. Plus, it was beautifully and creatively showcased through this technology-driven work of art!

Don’t miss the chance to see it!⁠

To get a feel for New York’s gritty past, definitely stop by the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, at 103 Orchard Street.

In addition to touring an authentic 19th century tenement house, this museum hosts highly interactive neighborhood tours with guides dressed in period costume.

All of the Tenement Museum’s exhibits are designed to illuminate the realities of American immigration from the 1800s onwards.

Oh! And before visiting the Tenement Museum, feel free to drop your heavy bags at one of the convenient Stasher locations in nearby SoHo or Chinatown.

Only large enough for three people, Lower Manhattan’s Mmuseumm won’t win any accolades for its extensive collection.

Despite the Mmuseumm’s amusingly small size, visitors rave about the constantly rotating selection of newsworthy artifacts.

We can’t promise you’ll feel overwhelmed by the Mmuseumm’s offerings, but you certainly won’t forget your visit.

The Mmuseumm’s is located close to the Canal Street Metro.

Location: 4 Cortlandt Alley

Despite protestations from British leaders, the stuffed animals that inspired A. A. Milne’s “Winnie The Pooh” remains in the New York Public Library.

In addition to Pooh Bear, visitors will get to see the original Kanga, Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet dolls that Christopher Robin once played with.

Note: the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building is the library branch that holds these treasured toys.

You can easily find this building near the 5th Avenue/Bryant Park Metro.

Location: 476 5th Avenue

Looking for some Buddhist serenity in the Big Apple? Consider visiting the underrated Chelsea’s Rubin Museum of Art. We truly love exploring it!

This easy-to-miss museum houses thousands of ornate art objects from the mystifying Himalayas.

From Tibet and India to Nepal and Pakistan, you’ll need a few reincarnations to appreciate all the art on display here.

The Rubin Museum of Art is less than a mile’s walk south of Penn Station near the 18th Street Metro. Bag storage is limited, so be sure to check out Stasher’s convenient luggage storage options in Penn Station before your visit.

After viewing dozens of espionage-related artifacts, visitors can test their spy skills through a series of highly immersive challenges, like solving encrypted codes and walking through laser sensors.

You might even be able to talk with resident hackers about the importance of Internet Privacy.

Honestly, what other city is more deserving of having a Skyscraper Museum?

Sure, the art of skyscrapers has now gone global, but New York City’s skyline will always remain the world’s most iconic.

Inside Battery Park’s Skyscraper Museum, you can learn the engineering behind all of New York’s famous buildings.

This museum also works hard to present the stories of the countless engineers and investors who made New York City what it is today.

Oh, a while back we experienced an amazing 2-day tour with Siemens where they showed us how their technology also helped build NYC! You might find this pretty cool as well!

You can easily reach the Skyscraper Museum on foot from the Wall Street Metro. Before visiting, please take a peek at Stasher’s convenient storage destinations in the Financial District.

Jason Rhoades at David Zwirner Gallery

Entertainment Culture Jason Rhoades David Zwirner Installation Tijuanatanjierchandelier

We were finally able to visit Jason Rhoades’ new exhibition at David Zwirner’s gallery called Tijuanatanjierchandelier. On view until early December, you’ll be able to see this incredible installation with your own eyes!

There is still time for you to go the David Zwirner’s gallery and see the new Jason Rhoades’ exhibition. This massive art installation is make of a huge chaotic web and countless objects.

Be sure to take your time and look closely to enjoy every single detail of it.


About the exhibition:

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of American artist Jason Rhoades’s large-scale installation Tijuanatanjierchandelier, on view at 519 West 19th Street.

First installed at the Centro de Arte Contemporáneo in Málaga, Spain, in 2006, and then featured the following year at the 52nd Venice Biennale, this exhibition marks the first presentation of Tijuanatanjierchandelier in New York.

This significant work—one of several installations made during the latter part of the artist’s career—exemplifies Rhoades’s singular investigation of contemporary consumer culture, his career-long interest in probing both language and identity, and his ceaseless drive to push the limits of convention.

The title of the work refers to the cities of Tijuana, Mexico, and Tangier, Morocco, two socially and culturally distinct locales separated by 6,000 miles, which Rhoades associates through their respective locations at the borders between the so-called developing world and the Euro-American West.

The visually striking installation is composed of a chaotic web of dangling chandelier-like sculptures made up of neon lights and assorted wares the artist collected during his travels.

Rhoades included fifty-one of these unique chandeliers in the original installation, forty-four of which are presented here. The sculptures are suspended above an array of items and souvenirs including mattresses, rugs, animal pelts, imposter handbags, sombreros, Moroccan lanterns, taxidermied animal heads, leather belts, ceramic gourds, trucker paraphernalia, bullwhips, and wooden maracas, among other found objects.

Reminiscent of a bazaar or marketplace, the work addresses the rise of global tourism and consumerism—industries that have come to define the economies of these areas—while also visualizing the tension that emerges between cultural expression and identity, and cultural appropriation and stereotype.

In his choice of these two locations, Rhoades also acknowledges the broader targeting of Latin Americans and Muslims in the post-9/11 political climate.

Though created before the 2008 global recession, the global refugee crises, and the ensuing wave of xenophobic nationalism, Tijuanatanjierchandelier anticipated the tensions that have recently erupted between the drive for increased free trade and globalization and the persistence of traditional notions of national sovereignty and security.

About the artist:

Jason Rhoades (1965–2006) was born in Newcastle, California. He received his M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1993. Later that year, Rhoades joined David Zwirner—becoming part of the gallery’s original roster of artists—and had his first New York solo show.

Rhoades’s work has been exhibited internationally since the 1990s. His first solo presentation at a European institution was held at Kunsthalle Basel, in 1996.

Rhoades emerged in the 1990s as one of the most formally and conceptually rigorous artists of his time.

During his short but prolific career he became known for highly original, large-scale sculptural installations, which incorporate various materials inspired by Los Angeles car culture and his upbringing in rural Northern California, as well as by a mixture of historical and contemporary global and regional influences that he explored throughout his life.

Until his untimely death, in 2006 at age 41, Rhoades carried out a continual assault on aesthetic conventions and the rules governing the art world, wryly subverting those conditions by integrating them into his practice.

He conceived his works as part of an ongoing project, to which objects were continuously added, assembled, and reassembled in various configurations…
