Three men -- an Indian. an African-American. a White Jewish guy. What do they have in common? Nothing . . . except their passion for comedy, their ability to break down racial and ethnic barriers through laughter, and their belief that diversity enhances all of our lives. These 3 men – Akash Bhasin, Alex Barnett and Charles McBee – who come from three very different backgrounds, use comedy to tackle head-on the racial and ethnic prejudices and stereotypes that even now in the 21st Century still linger. Through their unique comedic perspectives, these men challenge the prejudices that still exist in today's world. And, when they do, look out, you'll find yourself not only laughing out loud but emerging with new perspectives on race and ethnicity and the wonderful diversity of American culture.

April 20, 2019 - New York

World Championship Boxing returns to Madison Square Garden on Saturday, April 20th as two of the sport's biggest stars face off in the year's most anticipated welterweight showdown when TERENCE "Bud" CRAWFORD puts his WBO Welterweight World Title on the line against the pride of Bolton, England, AMIR "King" KHAN. Crawford (34-0, 25 KOs), from Omaha, Neb., is ranked by many experts as the world's best fighter, a switch-hitting dynamo who has reigned supreme in three weight classes. Crawford made history when he unified all four 140-pound titles in 2017 before moving up to Welterweight. Crawford will be stepping into The Garden's famed Boxing ring for the third time in his career. Khan (33-4, 20 KOs) burst into the public consciousness at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens when, at 17 years of age, he captured a silver medal for Great Britain. The lightning quick former unified 140-pound champion has won seven of his last eight bouts as he prepares to take on the pound-for-pound king in a legacy-defining superfight.

"Two Doors Down" Painting Compilation Exhibiting at Chase Contemporary Gallery - Chase Contemporary Gallery
Through April 28, 2019 - New York

Featured “Two Doors Down” Painting Compilation Exhibiting At Chase Contemporary Gallery April 4th – 28th In New York City Stanley Casselman & Hallie Hart will be presenting their “Two Doors Down” exhibition at Chase Contemporary Gallery (521 W 23rd Street / New York, NY) opening April 4th and ending on April 28th. Stanley Casselman’s “Liquid” paintings specifically are acrylic on polyester screen and then sprayed with silver nitrate. The process of applying the silver nitrate is called spray chrome. Silver nitrate is what's on the back of a mirror. The influence for using the process came from two other artists, Jason Martin and Anselm Reyle who've been incorporating it into their practices for about half a dozen years. “My practice is process based. I embrace accident, random occurrence and I'm far more interested in what 'we' as humanity don't know vs. what we already do. I like to think of it as the leading edge of knowledge, the known vs. the unknown. And specifically to my practice I'm interested in what's visually new, what hasn't been done before and more importantly where the experience of color, line and form can take the viewer,” said Stanley Casselman “In my ...

Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless - Red Bull Arts
Through July 28, 2019 - New York

Red Bull Arts New York is proud to present Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless, the first posthumous retrospective of the life and work of the influential, multi-disciplinary artist. Opening to the public on March 6, 2019, and remaining on view until July 28, the ambitious exhibition returns the spotlight to one of contemporary art's most prescient figures, detailing her historic importance and contemporary relevance. Gretchen Bender (1951-2004) was a pioneering artist who worked across video, sculpture, computer graphics, photography, print and installation to interrogate the accelerated age of mass media. Moving to New York in 1978, Bender quickly fell in with the Post-Pictures Generation scene, centered around the artist-run gallery Nature Morte, as well as a milieu of artist and performers connected to The Kitchen. She befriended and collaborated with such figures as artists Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman, the choreographers Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, and musicians Stuart Argabright and Vernon Reid.
