Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra - Highline Ballroom
October 30, 2018 - New York

Ottmar Liebert is a German-born flamenco guitarist who released his first album at the beginning of the '90s. He specializes in nouveau flamenco, which blends flamenco with jazz rhythms and pop music structures, making the music accessible to a wide audience. Ottmar Liebert has said that "flamenco is a music both romantic and dangerous; it is an attitude as much as it is a musical genre." The guitarist is renowned for harnessing the emotional fire and mournful tonalities of traditional flamenco music, updating it with the subtle rhythms of jazz, and making it widely accessible with the melodic song structures of pop. But even the cleverest formulas are worthless without the animating spark of genius - a quality for which there is no formula, only serendipity. Liebert, together with Luna Negra, provides that spark. Liebert's incredible global success on a musical level often seems like a simple outgrowth of his cultural background and powerful wanderlust in his formative years. Born in Cologne, Germany, to a Chinese-German father and a Hungarian mother, he began playing guitar at 11 and traveled extensively through Europe and Asia, intent on fully absorbing each musical tradit...

Patricia Queiruga - Agora Gallery
Through October 30, 2018 - New York

Collective Exhibition With an ever-changing combination of paints, Patricia Queiruga builds work that ranges from abstract to figurative, but remains reliably organic. In each of the artist's works, paint builds, drizzles, and drips into shape. The movement of the material on the canvas and the artist's action in making the work is always visible. In some works vibrant streaks of red or yellow burst through the composition. Inspired by music, Queiruga makes energetic choices in acrylic, oil, and mixed media, translating the exciting notes into a visual practice. Sharply cutting across one another or carefully blended together in the background, the colors and treatments combine with Queiruga's impulsive choices to form artworks full of emotion and spontaneity. Working freely, Queiruga explores each avenue of interest, whether an elephant or an abstract concept, with versatility and an expressionistic perspective. Born in the city of Córdoba, Patricia Queiruga lives and works in Argentina. The artist incorporates varied influences into each work, sometimes using painting as a means of pure expression while also occasionally highlighting societal issues like human trafficking t...

Dana Fuchs - Highline Ballroom
November 02, 2018 - New York

Dana Fuchs has never dealt in nostalgia. For this questing artist, it's not about the rear-view but the road ahead. The next song. The next session. Tonight's show and tomorrow's bus ride. But as Dana sheds her musical skin with triumphant fourth album Love Lives On, it seems a fitting juncture to rewind the reels and thumb a backstory as compelling as any in rock 'n' roll. This life and times doesn't always make for easy reading. The triumphs are laced by tragedy, ugliness, injustice. But whatever the obstacles, music and love have been the beacons that guide her on. As one of New York City's favourite daughters, it's tempting to imagine that Dana's career began amidst the subterranean throb in the clubs on the Lower East Side. It's true: that city was her birthplace and springboard to fame. But to truly grasp her artistic motivations, you'd have to follow the family's car towards Florida, and rattle along the dirt tracks until you hit Wildwood: a backwoods town, population two-thousand, where black and white were split along battlelines and distrust simmered in the air. "Back in the '70s, it was a sorta small, racist town," remembers Dana, who dropped a social hand-grenade b... (read more)

"Manhattan's electric energy and robotic precision is tangible in [KISSEY'S] beats, the unsettling edge and sensuality of Brooklyn nights are present in her vocals, [and] Harlem's all-out balls-to-the-wall attitude carries through her live performances." — i-D Magazine As DJs spin, the photobooth flashes and mixers mix, enjoy delicious selections from the Lobby Bar and high fives from our friendly staff.
