After twenty years of playing in some of the most prestigious venues on the East Coast, UF has formed a reputation among many to be one of the closest experiences to being at an actual live U2 show. The members of UF are also very dedicated fans of U2, and will not settle for anything less than complete authenticity. In addition to performing a very impressive array of U2 material from pre-Boy to the most recent Songs of Innocence and beyond, the band does everything in their power (from wardrobe to lighting) to recreate the live U2 concert setting for their audiences. One of UF's last founding members from 1995, drummer George (Larry) Levesanos, still performs with the band. George is a veteran drummer on the New York City music scene and has performed in many other projects before forming UF. Joining the band in the summer of 2001 was singer Tony (Bono) Russo.

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Roots and Wings, a group exhibition on view March 2 through March 22, 2019. Roots and Wings features twelve artists whose works speak to the tension between political and social aspiration and the obstacles presented by everyday pressures. This exhibition includes James Chisholm, Markeith Woods, Diana Linsse, Poonam Verma, Roberta Caviglia, Teona Titvinidze-Kapon, Jon Kraja, Vasant Dora, Eunhyue Shin, Katha Rossein, Emil Silberman, Raul Mariaca Dalence and Yoram Kafkafi. Roots and Wings is an exhibition of works that rest somewhere on the continuum between figuration and abstraction. Yet, all of the works share in spatially and visually embodying the drama of historic aspiration. With themes ranging from the depiction of battlefields, to death under moonlight, to the more interior struggles of domestic life and the pressures of femininity, Roots and Wings communicates a melancholic atmosphere which isn’t without a tincture of hope. Roots and Wings exhibits all the distinguishing characteristics of formalism, while showcasing all-too-familiar scenarios. In this way, the exhibition expresses the conatus of human aspiration as something that... (read more)

Daughter of a Garbageman - The PIT
March 30, 2019 - New York

DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN is a tale of Maureen Langan's 1970's upbringing in New Jersey, in which her Irish mother and Bronx-born father, a New York City sanitation worker, told her to work hard, get educated and life would reward her. But is that true? How do you tell a girl to read and write when sex tapes lead to fame and fortune? When the star of The Apprentice can become the president? In DAUGHTER OF A GARBAGEMAN, Langan lambasts today's "reality culture," while revealing her parents' strengths, struggles and secrets, as well as her own, and how that made her who she is today. Maureen taps into the hearts and frustrations of hard-working people everywhere who wonder if they, too, were raised wrong. Directed by David Ford

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. Building upon techniques developed in her years running a feminist-Marxist screen-printing collective in Washington, D.C., Bender's early two-dimensional work, made in New York, ... (read more)
