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…

It has been a while since I had seen such an interesting immersive art installation in New York City like Arcadia Earth, especially considering that they happen all-the-time.

Every week, there is something new to be seen.

But, many of them simply don’t have a bigger purpose behind it and it’s exclusively for commercial reasons and entertainment.

We all know how Instagrammable places create buzz online and so many organic postings, but many brands forget to actually put together something more meaningful.

With the endless crucial conversations that have been going on about Global Warming and how everyone needs to really start understanding the consequences of how they’re living their lives, Arcadia Earth did a truly remarkable work!


The concept was idealized by the Experiential Retail Designer, Valentino Vettori. And I have to say, such a brilliant mind!

“I believe in Retail, I believe in shopping centers, I believe in physical environments. I do NOT believe in how stores are design and operated today, I no longer believe in the $XSQFT formula, I believe in “IMPRESSIONS X SQFT”.”

“The brick & mortar industry is tired and we need to “shake it”. What was yesterday defined as “Lifestyle” should today become “storytelling”. Brands need to rethink their Store layouts where Products are no longer the primary focus.

“Racks of garments and shelves full of goods should make space for experiential display. It’s no longer “Visual Merchandising”, it’s now “Emotional Storytelling”. I’m an Experiential Retail Designer, I believe in Evolution but this time I’m calling for brands interested in Retail Revolution.”

Culture Arcadia Earth Valentino Vettori


What is it?

“Arcadia Earth is a large scale multi-sensorial journey through underwater worlds, fantasy lands, and inspirational art installations. Powered by augmented reality, virtual reality, projection mapping, and interactive environments, you, the explorer, will learn how small lifestyle changes will have a massive impact on the future of our planet.”

Purpose:

“Arcadia aims to bring innovative brands, organizations, artists and activists together to showcase the best of the environmental movement and foster engaged conversation. We provide an otherworldly platform to raise awareness about sustainability and circular design.”


The 15 different rooms, in over 15,000 square feet, addresses numerous environmental issues related to Land, Water, Air and Energy. Each room has a great explanation of what is actually happening around the world right now and the huge negative impact it’s causing.

Now, may times we know these facts, but we do not know HOW we can actually contribute to making less of a damage, right? The installations not only show you visually what’s happening, but also aims to bring and offer sustainable solutions.

Before entering, you’ll be advised to download the immersive exhibit’s app. You can also get an iPad to experience it all. Once you enter the rooms, you’ll be able to read how we’re impacting the Earth and what we can do to help!

After that, you follow the instructions on your iPad to experience the beautiful work done with augmented reality and other technologies. It’s hard to explain in words, but you can see our IGTV video on it!


Now, let us share some of the facts you’ll learn more about:

Culture Arcadia Earth DMitchell Coral Reefs

Did you know:

  • Coral reefs make up 1 percent of the ocean floor, yet are home to over 25% of all marine life;
  • A single drop of chemical sunscreen in enough to contaminate a coral reef environment the size of 6.5 Olympic-sized swimming pools;
  • Coral Reefs are major tourism attractions and approximately 6,000 – 14,000 tons of sunscreen (the equivalent of 38 Boing 747’s) enter coral reef environments every year;
  • Coral reefs the size of 2.5 American football fields die every minute and 90% of the world’s reefs are predicted to be destroyed by 2050.

… You can help:

  • Choose reef safe sunscreen. Mineral-based non-nano options like company raw elements is a great alternative option;
  • Eat only sustainable fish to stop destructive fishing practices like trawling that destroy our reefs;
  • Replace chemical cleaning products with a homemade non-toxic solution of baking soda, white vinegar, alcohol and lemon.
Culture Arcadia Earth DMitchell Plastic in the Ocean

Did you know:

  • The majority of plastic trash ends up in the ocean;
  • Around 4-12 million tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean a year, that’s 1 truckload per minute;
  • Over 4 billion plastic cups are used in the U.S. every year;
  • 2,160,000 plastic bottles are consumed in the U.S. every day;
  • 55,800 pounds of plastic containers and packaging is produced in the U.S. every minute;
  • If we continue at this rate, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

…You can help:

  • Say no to plastic water bottles. Buy a recyclable water bottle and refill it – download the Tap App to find free drinking water stations in the U.S.;
  • Replace plastic straw with paper, hay, bamboo, lemongrass, metal or glass straws;
  • Replace plastic coffee cups with reusable ones;
  • If you must use plastic avoid type #3 – #7, it’s not recyclable (the number is on the recyclable symbol).

Did you know:

  • Over 50,000 acres of forest (an area the size of 3.5 Manhattan’s) are lost every day at a result of human agriculture. Over 80% of this loss comes from 11 of the most important rainforests in the world;
  • Globally we waste 33% of all food every year – that’s more than 150,000 garbage trucks full of waste every day. The U.S. is one of the worst culprits – food waste has hit 40%;
  • Landfills are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions in the U.S. – 22% of which is made up of food waste;
  • Methane emissions warms the planet 86 times faster than CO2.

…You can help:

  • Plant a tree to absorb carbon from the atmosphere;
  • Compost your organic waste to reduce methane emissions resulting from landfill;
  • Reduce food waste and eat your leftovers;
  • Donate unused groceries to local food rescue organizations;
  • Micro shop – only buy what you will eat;
  • Buy imperfect, organic product to dramatically decrease food waste

Did you know:

  • Textile waste had risen rapidly over the years, yet only 1% of fibers in clothes can be reused to make new garments;
  • The average American will toss 81 pounds of clothing this year, and only 10% will be recycled, meaning 24.5 billion pounds will end up in landfills;
  • 85% of clothes you wear will end up in a landfill – accounting for 5% of all landfill;
  • The main contributors to textile pollution are products that cannot biodegrade or compost – including footwear, bedding, towels and clothing.

…You can help:

  • Demand transparency from brands and retailers when you shop;
  • Ask for sustainable clothes and products, the quality is better, they last longer and are less likely to end up in landfill;
  • Recycle, reuse and repurpose to conserve the energy and resources it takes to product new garments;
  • Look for clothes, shoes and homewares made with TencelTM Fibers as they are created with trees grown in sustainable managed forests, so they are wood-based, compostable, biodegradable, strong and sustainable;
  • Used in apparel, home and footwear, TencelTM Fibers are created from trees grown in sustainable managed forests and have a low environmental footprint.

These are crazy facts, right? Once we get these numbers into perspective, it’s just insane to think and realize what we’re doing to planet Earth.

In addition, not only are you learning in a fun way what’s happening to our Home, but for every ticket sold, Arcadia Earth will plant one tree and donate to their charity partner, Oceanic Global!

Beyond the Streets: Celebrating Graffiti And Street Art

Experts Recaps Beyond The Streets NYC Hollow

This is probably one of the most amazing exhibitions I’ve been since David Bowie earlier this year! Beyond the Streets not only is an extraordinary exhibition but celebrates street art in monumental proportions.

I believe that most of you know, or at least have heard about the importance of graffiti and street art in New York’s history and how it is part of the city’s essence and culture.

Beyond The Streets is located in one of Williamsburg newest locations called Twenty Five Kent. It was beautifully curated by Roger Gastman and takes over a space of 100,000 square feet, spread within 2 massive floors.

This traveling art exhibition is attracting viewers of all ages and nationalities. They all spend a few hours emerged in learning how graffiti and street art has, and still is, transforming society. In addition to how these “mark makers” express themselves and share, within their work, crucial messages and where “art activism” has created and conquered its space.

The curation of the exhibition is fantastic, and it unites over 150 names from all over the world like:  C.R. Stecyk III, Cey Adams, John Ahearn, Felipe Pantone, Kennt Shcarf, Maya Hayuk, Martha Cooper and Lady Pink (that I talked about in our IGTV video). And still, others like Patrick Martinez, Obey, Mark Gonzales, Lee Quiñones and so many other amazing creators that are truly disrupting this industry!

We were able to see art works, videos, massive installations, sculptures and so much more. Not to mention, the building has a priceless view of Manhattan’s skyline!

A bit more about them:

“BEYOND THE STREETS celebrates society’s most pervasive mark makers and rule breakers with unprecedented purpose and scale. The exhibition explores the collective urgency of using the street as a canvas for expression. People have long taken to the streets to share a name, phrase, image or cause with the world around them to force a public discourse.

Streets act as the symbolically important public stage that is both local and universal, the bedrock for both public protest and anonymous action. While the subject matter varies and the mediums are many, it is in the public sphere where these messages find a home.”

Unfortunately, they only passed by New York during a few Summer months. Yesterday was the last day in New York, as their travel now continues…

Be sure to stay tuned to their website. Or, sign up to their newsletter to know where they’re headed next!

I promise, you won’t be disappointed! They truly are doing an extraordinary work!

I can’t forget to mention their store! They have a selection of over 150 products and even some great original work, if you’re into collecting art! From the common t-shirts, hats, magnets and keychains, to puzzels, art, decoration items and so much more! Oh! They do sell online, if you missed it!

The Forgotten East​: A Mystic Pop-Up Adventure Through Ancient China

Culture Music Forgotten East Pop Up Exhibition Ancient China The Silk Market

Chinatown, in downtown New York, is the home of a new pop-up exhibit! The Forgotten East​ is a mystic pop-up adventure that will take you through a journey back to ancient China.

You might remember from your History class back in school the story of the famous Silk Road that connected the regions of “East Asia and Southeast Asia with East Africa, West Asia and Southern Europe”. (source Wikipedia) If you don’t…let me refresh you memory!

It built the relationship between the East and the West from 206 B.C. to 220 A.D.

It’s well-known that the route was immensely prosperous from the silk trade along the way. But, other items were also traded in different time periods like glassware, spices, perfumes, nephrite, jade, other crafts and so much more.

It is also said that not only objects were traded, but there was an immense cultural exchange. Religions like Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Zoroastrianism, etc were spread, but most prominently was Buddhism due to the monasteries found along the journey. They ended up being homes to foreigners that were introduced to this new religion and practices.

What ended up happening is that many of these foreigners, because of the vast influence of different schools, “mixed and matched” beliefs, resulting in syncretism. What is that? Well, it’s the “attempted reconciliation or union of different or opposing principles, practices, or parties, as in philosophy or religion”. (source Dictionary.com)

Now that you’ve refreshed your mind, let me get into the exhibition!

The journey is divided into 4 specific room called The Mountain, The Desert, The Cave and The Market. The artist behind it all is the young and talented, Masa Ma.

She explains the idea behind it: “I wanted to represent not only the main street of ancient China, but also wanted to bring back the memories, relaxation and the beautiful natural society in ancient times, where industrialization does not exist.”

After all, we all know how crazy it can be to live in a city like New York and other big cities, right? She wanted to remind her audience that it’s time to slow down and enjoy their life in the river of history.


1st room: The Mountain

Culture Music Forgotten East Pop Up Exhibition Ancient China Mountain Bird Poem

This room is beautifully painted and shows an Eastern mountain in a Chinese landscape. In addition, you can walk through some small installations as a continuation of these mountains with a happy surprise when a strong vapor is released to replicate the mountain’s mist. Pretty cool!

It’s also curious and interesting to see on one of the walls, a beautifully written Chinese poem that talks about nature.


2nd Room: The Cave

Culture Music Forgotten East Pop Up Exhibition Ancient China The Cave

When you enter this room, your eyes just can stop looking everywhere. It’s a translation of the Mogao Caves. It is also known as the Caves of the Thousand Buddhas uniting 492 temples located in Gansu province, China. It was used by Buddhists to warship their Gods and practice their endless meditations, as well as welcome foreigners that journeyed through the Silk Road.

Since the cave was the home to some of the most amazing Buddhist art up to 1,000-years old, Masa Ma created small Buddhist sculptures that were placed throughout the room.

Curiously, the holes on the cave’s walls were designed with a mirror, as a reminder to us not to destroy nature and be mindful of our actions.


3rd Room: The Desert

Throughout the exploration of this room, you’ll find a beautiful treasure trunk with jewelry, china, silk and other treasures inside (even skulls were found there, back in the day!). Treasures were actually left behind by the ones that passed through and experienced the brutal desert climate.

The fun thing of this room is to play around with the jewelry and take that Instagram-worthy shot! It’s the most explorative place throughout our adventure.


4th Room: The Market

Finally, you reach our destination! The Eastern Market was where the magic happened. Travelers and adventurers exchanged good and fostered this fast-growing economy, in such a distant time in history from us.

This last room had some delicious surprises for you to enjoy at the end of the journey with your friends/family.


“​The Forgotten East is not only an exhibit about eastern culture, but it is a journey that represents travelers and adventurers’ courage to conquer challenges and reach their final destination to the western world,” as states Fengyuan Zhong, another artist of the exhibit.

The pop-up exhibition will run daily through July 28th, 2019.

If you enjoyed, you might want to take a look at other exhibits like the Color Factory,  or you might want to explore  museum I love: The Cloister, that is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Find All 19 Murals Painted By Kobra in New York

Kobra Mural Grafitti New York Tolerance

It’s practically unanimous the feeling and respect people have for Eduardo Kobra. His murals brings so much creativity and life, so I decided to compile and share with you all 19 murals painted by Kobra in New York City, so you have visit them yourself!

Kobra Mural Grafitti New York Tolerance
Tolerance (Madre Teresa & Mahatma Ghandi) – 130 10th Avenue

Last year I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing the Brazilian artist, Eduardo Kobra, better known as only Kobra. In addition, I was part of a small group that walked around New York City with him to learn, from his own words, what his murals are all about, the inspirations and stories! Priceless, for sure!

For years, Kobra has been a growing legend when the topic is: street art and graffiti.

In New York City alone he currently has 19 breathtaking murals, where in Brazil, he’s painted over 500! But, his work doesn’t stop there. He’s been traveling the four corners of the globe for years now and leaving his mark at every spot.

Amazingly, Kobra is self-taught and collects inspirations from big names like: Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring (1958-1990), Diego Rivera and the 1970’s group of New York street artists.

Read more about his work!

His recent project in New York, named Colors of Liberty, took place and was finalized by the end of 2018. The idea behind it was to portray and pay homage to great personalities that have and still are fighting against violence, with the goal of spreading peace.

Some of these names are: “the Indian activist Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), the Holocaust victim Anne Frank (1929-1945), the Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai (1997-), and the German scientist Albert Einstein (1879-1955), among other examples like Mother Teresa, Andy Warhol, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Frida Kahlo, etc.

His style is certainly one of a kind. The geometrical colors of his murals are distinct and unmistakable, having become his trademark.

He’s painted in countries such as Spain, Italy, Norway, England, Malawi, India, Japan, United Arab Emirates, and several North American cities besides, of course, around Brazil.

Brazilians L-O-V-E New York and when they come across one of Kobra’s murals, the reaction is always the same: they feel SO proud and happy to have a Brazilian artist beautifying the streets of one of the most important cities on our planet. Well, I do think it’s one of the most amazing places on Earth, if you read my story.

That said, I decided to compile and share with you all the current 19 art works around the city with all the names and addresses. This way, you can visit them yourself and be sure to take that Instagram-worthy shot to share with your friends!

Sadly, the very famous iconic kiss mural that could be seen from the High Line is now gone!

I have not been able to find the reason why, as many other people too, but it’s such a huge loss t to the city. Now an ugly, sad grey paint covers it and no explanation was giving…

Eduardo Kobra currently lives in São Paulo, where his atelier is located, with his wife, Andressa, and baby boy, Pedro.

Immersing Yourself in the Rich History of Greenwich Village

Curiosities City Secrets Greenwich Village 1900 Wiki Commons

Among New York City’s many fascinating sites, Greenwich Village is arguably the most storied. Come immerse yourself in the rich history of Greenwich Village!

Among New York City’s many fascinating sites, Greenwich Village is arguably the most storied. Albeit usually remembered as a haven for artists, its historic roots actually run deeper. Before it was anything else, Greenwich Village in the 1630’s was a marshland where Dutch settlers fed their livestock. It was initially developed into a village separate from New York City.

Curiosities City Secrets Greenwich Village 1900 Wiki Commons

But as the urban sprawl consumed the area, Greenwich Village took on a new identity in 1857 at the founding of the Tenth Street Studio Building. It housed the first architecture school in the US and attracted artists from all over the world.

It was also the place where the so-called “bohemian” movement began, a subculture which was described in an 1858 article on The New York Times as “either an artist or an author, whose special aversion is work, and whose ambition is to excel in some particular walk.” The Village’s affinity to bohemians of all sorts has since defined its identity.

Decades later, the Hotel Albert opened in 1880 and attracted the best artists and writers of that particular time. A long list of creative people stayed here including Mark Twain, Anais Nin, Walt Whitman, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, and Jackson Pollock.

In addition, the Village also saw the birth of American experimental theater pushed by Eugene O’Neil and Edna St. Vincent Millay, and it was integral in the transition of the global art capital from Paris to New York in the mid-20th century.

Various American art movements including Abstract Expressionism, emerged out of the Village.

The Village has significant contributions to music and self-expression, too. It’s the place where the first desegregated nightclub in the country, Cafe Society, was built. The venue dedicated itself to the cutting-edge music of its time, bebop jazz. Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, and other jazz giants graced it with their presence during its heyday.

The ferocious sound of bebop also lured the Beat Generation artists to the Village, with writers Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and others gaining the literary spotlight. In the 1960s, the Beats became an inspiration for different forms of counterculture. The progressive ideas of the Beats and the hippies informed the eventual rise of the LGBT movement and other civil rights groups. The LGBT movement found expression in the 1969 Stonewall Riot, which also happened in Greenwich Village.

Popular structures such as Grace Church and the Jefferson Market Library tower over the Village as reminders of the place’s creative tradition.

Another structure, The Westbeth, which was a former Bell Telephone Labs office, also became a popular residence for artists. It eventually housed the studios of choreographer Merce Cunningham, musical arranger Gil Evans, Robert De Niro Sr., and Vin Diesel.

While the Greenwich Village of today has none of the rustic and bohemian charm of its past, it remains one of the most renowned places in New York, thanks to the preservation of its iconic buildings.

Greenwich Village’s longevity can be attributed mainly to local laws that help maintain its historic buildings.

In fact, a section of the Village made up of more than 50 blocks has been established as part of a Historic District, thanks to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Development in this area follows very strict rules, such as the requirement to preserve a historic building’s main facade if it is to be renovated.

NYC also implements Local Law 11, which indirectly contributes to the Village’s preservation. Local Law 11 is explained by real estate expert James McGrath in an article on Yoreevo. He states that the law mandates regular facade inspections of buildings higher than six stories to ensure their structural integrity. Although it’s primary purpose is for safety, the law also helps ensure that old buildings in the city are maintained. The excellent condition of most structures in Greenwich Village is a good example of how a bustling metropolis should take care of its historic buildings.

Just knowing the history of Greenwich Village and the people who have called it home are enough reasons to give this neighborhood a visit. To explore other interesting places in the Big Apple, check out our previous post about Astoria, a commercial neighborhood in Queens.

Narcissus Garden Installation by Yayoi Kusama at Fort Tilden

Yayoi Kusama is known worldwide for her impactful installations and art works! She now brings a fantastic work called Narcissus Garden to the Rockaways, at Fort Tilden, New York!

I love everything Yayoi creates and her avant-garde spirit is truly inspiring!

Starting tomorrow, July 1st, the Rockaways will be bustling this summer with people coming to visit the famous Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama’s new installation.

Narcissus Garden has 1,500 silver stainless reflective spheres installed inside a former train garage.

This is part of MoMA’s PS1 series named “Rockaways”, a yearly arts festival with the goal of recovering the area after the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, back in 2012.

The installation will be live up through September 3rd!

Location: Studio 7 Gallery, Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area, Far Rockaway, NY (Map below)


More about the installation:

MoMA PS1 presents Yayoi Kusama’s (Japan, b. 1929) site-specific installation of Narcissus Garden (1966–present) as the third iteration of Rockaway!, a free public art festival presented with Rockaway Artists Alliance, Jamaica Bay-Rockaway Parks Conservancy, National Park Service, and Bloomberg Philanthropies in the Gateway National Recreation Area at Fort Tilden.

Comprised of 1,500 mirrored stainless steel spheres, Narcissus Garden is on view in a former train garage that dates to the time when Fort Tilden was an active US military base.

The mirrored metal surfaces reflect the industrial surroundings of the now-abandoned building, drawing attention to Fort Tilden’s history as well as the devastating damage inflicted on many buildings in the area by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

Narcissus Garden was first presented in 1966, when Kusama staged an unofficial installation and performance at the 33rd Venice Biennale.

The silver spheres, originally made from plastic, were installed on the lawn in front of the Italian Pavilion, reflecting the landscape of the exhibition grounds.

Kusama herself stood among them, barefoot and dressed in a gold kimono, alongside yard signs inscribed with the words “Narcissus Garden, Kusama” and “Your Narcissism for Sale.” Throughout the opening day of the exhibition, Kusama remained in the installation, tossing the spheres in the air and offering to sell them to visitors for 1,200 lire (approximately $2) each.

The action, which was viewed both as self-promotion and a critique on the commercialization of contemporary art, would later be seen as a pivotal moment in Kusama’s career as she transitioned from installation toward the radical, politically charged public performances that would be the focus of her work in the late 1960s in New York City.”

For more infos, see MoMA’s website!


You might also want to see a video about Yayoi’s life! She is know for having quick a journey with a few mental health issues. But, what keeps her alive is surely her beautiful work!

So, if you also adore everything that Yayoi Kusama creates, than this is a must-go exhibition, so don’t waste your time and plan your day trip to the Rockaways!

Here Died Warhol: A Sensational Experience by Eugenio Merino

Culture Music Here Died Warhol by Eugenio Merino Installation

Visit Andy Warhol’s body in Chelsea! “Here Died Warhol” is a sensational experience created by the Spanish artist, Eugenio Merino. Be ready to see a life-size hyperrealistic sculpture of Warhol’s body in an immersive installation!

Culture Music Here Died Warhol by Eugenio Merino

Andy Warhol was one of the most well-known names when talking about pop art!

The American artist was also a renowned producer and director, and has a studio in NYC called The Factory. Want to know a cool fact? The 1st location of the studio, in Midtown Manhattan, costed him only $100 rent/year in the early 1960’s!

His works are shown worldwide and through July 9th, you’ll be able to see Here Died Warhol, at the Unix Gallery.


Most know him for his films and painting, but Warhol has another entire list of works that ranged from photography and audio, to theater, fashion and culture.

Starting April 26, it will be possible to visit Andy Warhol’s body in Chelsea, New York. Here Died Warhol is a sensational experience that takes the visitor around New York City.

It follows Andy Warhol’s footsteps from his artistic beginnings to the glamorous and iconic places he frequented. The late artist’s body will lie in state at UNIX Gallery, through June 9th, 2018.

Here Died Warhol is an immersive installation by Spanish artist Eugenio Merino featuring a life-size hyperrealistic sculpture of Andy Warhol accompanied by a black granite gravestone. There is a functioning souvenir shop (including T-shirts, postcards, mugs).

And, a self-guided tour map of Warhol’s essential haunts (like his first New York residence and The Factory) complete Eugenio Merino the installation.

The intimacy of Merino’s sculpture in the gallery punctuates the cultural tourist’s experience as they contemplate the art and popularity of Warhol’s legacy.

Curated by the Málaga-based collective Los Interventores, Here Died Warhol explores the curiosity and motivation of Adjectival Tourism. In this case, it is a paired fascination with Warhol’s explosive célébrité and an innate curiosity about death close-up (like visitors to the Paris Morgue in the late 1800s).

Resonating with tourists and gallery visitors alike, the exhibition gives a full understanding of the city and artist that helped shape each other.

The installation is a sharp critique of the mass tourism and the cultural industry of the city-brand.  It examines the clash between the rise of tourist attractions and the needs of the local population; where real is replaced by a false setting targeted at the visitor.

Here Died Warhol is the definitive opportunity to take a selfie with the artist. Plus, acquire those objects created to capitalize on the essence of the most famous Pop Art visionary; the sale of the artist ́s aura.

The hyperrealism of Merino’s sculpture highlights this conflict between the genuine and the fake within the tourist experience.

This frustration transforms the city into a commodified space intended primarily for leisure and consumerism.

Here Died Warhol follows on the success of Aquí Murió Picasso (Here Died Picasso), which in 2017 attracted more than 20,000 visitors to the Alliance Française in Málaga.

For the duration of the exhibition, it became a must-see tourist experience in the capital of La Costa del Sol.


About Eugenio Merino:

Born in 1975 in Spain, Eugenio Merino graduated from the Complutense University of Madrid. Merino had his first US museum show at the Station Museum of Contemporary Art (Houston) in October 2015.

In addition, the artist has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and has participated in a variety of art fairs. These includes: Volta NY, Volta Basel, ARCO (Madrid), Art Brussels, FIAC (Paris), Armory Show, Arte Fiera (Bologna), Art BO (Bogota), MACO (Mexico), Art Wynwood (Miami) and has exhibited in the MOCA Museum of Taipei and the B.P.S.22 in Charleroi (Belgium).


Date: Through June 9th, 2018
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 10am – 6pm
Location: UNIX Gallery – 532 West 24th Street

She was named after Natalie Cole by her father – the son of a retired Air Force pilot and music minister.

Located in the neighborhood of Williamsburg, the House of Collection is owned by Paige Stevenson. The place is a 2,000 sqft apartment “loft” they actually live in, since 1989.

The place is also the home of a huge variety of pretty eccentric objects that Paige collected throughout her life.

As a young girl, and living a “nomadic life”, she spent every couple of years in different places. From goat farms to tepees, and collected a quite interesting collection of objects.

She chose every object carefully and picked the ones that called her attention the most, even if, for most people, it all just seamed like garbage.

The creatively built and decorated loft, gives visitors an urban vibe, with a nature twist. What do we mean? Paige has built in a beautiful garden kinda integrated to the living room, right beside the kitchen – that is also a highlight! Well, it’s hard to know what “not” to highlight there.

They host intimate gatherings, live music nights and other special, carefully curated events for a niche crowd. Definitely up our alley!
