"Art Benefit Raises Funds for Human Trafficking Awareness Play" - Chinatown Soup Gallery
Through February 16, 2018 - New York

In 2017, more than 3,500 sex trafficking cases were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, and there are thousands of cases that go unreported because far too often the victims of trafficking have been silenced through a fear of recriminations and violence by their handlers. That is why Mirage Theatre is working with playwright Melisa Tien, a NY Foundation of the Arts Fellow and member of New Dramatists to create a play that gives voice to victims and survivors of human trafficking. Her script and the resulting production will confront the ordeals faced by the most vulnerable members of our society who live in a form of modern slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally.

The Archaeology of Colors Polychromy and Classical Chinese Bronze Art - Institute for the Study of the Ancient World
February 12, 2019 - New York

Allison Miller Researchers of Hellenistic art have long recognized that many statues that now appear as works of pure white marble were originally polychrome. In early Chinese art, in contrast, the hallowed works of China's classical antiquity—the bronzes—are generally believed to have been unpainted. After all, why would artisans paint over an expensive bronze surface? In recent years, however, many varieties of bronzes have been uncovered with colorful ornamentation including sacrificial vessels, figural sculptures, mirrors, lamps, weapons, and personal ornaments. Using this data, this talk will survey China's polychrome bronze tradition from the Shang to the Han (1600 BCE-220 CE), considering the diverse functions assumed by painted ornamentation and identifying two major transitions in polychrome bronze art in the 5th c. BCE and the mid-2nd century BCE. Special attention will be paid to technical aspects of painting craft in early China, particularly the development of new binding agents in the Western Han.

This winter, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents “If You Want to Know about Andy Warhol,” a four-week course examining the artistic contributions of Andy Warhol.

The master class will be led by Josh Lubin-Levy, a fellow at the Whitney and member of the faculty at the Institute for Curatorial Practice in Performance at Wesleyan University and in the department of Visual Studies at The New School.

'Pop-Porn' is Neo-Pop Erotica for the Masses! - MF Gallery
Through February 17, 2019 - Brooklyn

'Pop-Porn' is Neo-Pop Erotica for the Masses! Five artists celebrate all forms of intimacy; untethered, unabashed, and unbound. Pop-Porn will debut at MF Gallery in Brooklyn on Jan.12th 2019. Curated by Matt Myers, aka Eronin, Pop-Porn spotlights five artists working with modern concepts of eroticism and desire, and how it is essential to us right now. Exhibition curator Matt Myers has worked and shown his art at Sotheby’s NY auction house since 2001. He became keenly aware of a cross-connect between Pop-Art and Eroticism, and the idea of Pop-Porn emerged as a platform to showcase a group of artists sharing this vision. The artists selected to participate in the Pop-Porn exhibition are: Eronin, Fernando Carpaneda, Ellen Stagg, Martina Secondo Russo and Anna Park. Just like Warhol, Wesselmann and Lichtenstein drew from everyday images from mass media and popular culture to create Pop-Art, Pop-Porn also draws from mass media, but from more provocative sources. There is a ever-growing trend in major venues and even auction houses to promote erotica as valid and essential. For two years in a row, Sotheby’s London has celebrated erotica in their highly successful public auctions ... (read more)
