  • These Corners Have New York's Back -- They're Making Plays for the Future Too!

    5/06/16

    by Art New York


    Whoever said character ebbs and flows in inverse proportions to a star’s salary, never met Janoris Jenkins and Darrelle Revis, two of the highest paid and highest calibered characters in the NFL.  


    Want proof? Take in the vision that’s been christened “The Corners of New York”.


    Put into play by that worldwide coalition of street art ops who banner together as The Bushwick Collective, presented by the multi-dimensioned set from Tansey Contemporary and taking place at the second annual spectacle that is Art New York, “The Corners of New York” is named for the positions played by Jenkins and Revis and features the respective Giant and Jet in works rendered by Brazilian artist Sipros and NYC’s own See TF. The paintings capture the cornerbacks in action, and they do so with the same vivid intensity both players bring to the game.



    To top it all off, the proceeds generated by these incredible portraits go to the good folks at The Perry J. Cohen Foundation, which aims to educate and empower the nation’s ocean-going youth and otherwise “shine a light on safe boating habits”.


    It takes considerable talent to capture the considerable talents of players like Jenkins and Revis, and it takes considerable character for such talents to come together and use said talent in support of others. Consequently, “The Corners of New York” is not just a hotshot show that pops off where the street meets the field (though it is that); it’s also a rock solid showing from two crosstown rivals who’ve united behind a worthy cause, and whose uniting dispels the myth about stars falling from sky high salaries.


    In other words, good guys can make a lotta loot, and a lotta loot doesn’t have to make a good guy go bad.


    Go New York!



  • Art New York Artist of the Day: Peter Anton

    4/19/16

    by Art New York

    How do you improve upon an absolute delight? Well, if you're as clever and crafty as Peter Anton and your delight happens to be a sugary treat, you increase its size and enhance its color till one can taste the sweet of its sensation, and the memories which make it so sensational.

    To Anton, a chocolate-covered cherry is never just a chocolate-covered cherry -- it's an afternoon on the veranda with the love of your life.

    Anton's been opening windows into the wows of Art Miami Fairgoers' lives since 2012, when his Arcature-backed thrill ride Sugar & Gomorrah became a blockbuster attraction of the blockbuster debut of CONTEXT Art Miami. (Flashback via BlackBook)

    The artstar's been a star attraction at every Art Miami Fair since, including the debut of Art New York (where his "Special Assortment" made Work of the Day) and the 2015 edition of Art Wynwood (where his "Milk Bar & Dark Bar" did likewise). 

    For this year's Art New York, Anton will be showing with Galerie Von Braunbehrens (Munich), Galerie Delaive (Amsterdam) and UNIX Gallery (New York), home of the recently run "I Love You"

    With absolute delights like Peter Anton on tap, it's a cinch that Art New York will be equally absolutely delightful!

  • Alexander Calder: An Art Miami Fairs Retrospective

    3/04/16

    by Art New York

    Who said the world will ever get enough Alexander Calder? 

    Certainly not Marcel Duchamp, who christened his pal's movable sculptures with the name "mobiles" (1931). Certainly not Albert Einstein, who stay glued to his seat throughout the full 40-minute spectacle that was A Universe (1934). Certainly not Thomas Wolfe, who immortalized him as Piggy Logan in his posthumous You Can't Go Home Again (1940). And certainly not Tate Modern, whose currently running Performing Sculpture is the largest exhibition of Calder's work ever mounted in Britain.

     

     

    Calder in the Studio (1941) from Rosemary Hill's "At Tate Modern" London Review of Books (which also spurred much of the above)

    Naturally, we at Art Miami Fairs can't get enough Calder either, nor can our exhibitors. Just yesterday Art New York's Work of the Day cited the fact that Barcelona's Imaginart* will be showing "Ghosts" (1964), which, as the gallery's sharp-eyed Laia Miguel points out, can be seen on the second floor of The Guggenheim Museum's landmark A Retrospective. (above) 

    In 2015, there was the Art Wynwood Work of the Day dedicated to "Juggler's Dream" (1966) from Waterhouse & Dodd, as well as the debut Art New York Artist of the Day entry featuring "Blue and Yellow Butterfly" (1973) from Chowaiki & Co. and "Rouge et Bleu" (1971) courtesy of Hollis Taggart Galleries.

    Then, at the last Art Miami, the Family of Fairs really went Calder, from teaming with Queue Projects to exhibit the monumental "The Spiral (No! to Frank Lloyd Wright)" (1969) to Mayoral Galeria d'Art's double-featuring of "The Red Base" (1969) and "Untitled" (1972) and Omer Tiroche Contemporary Art's placing of "Hammock" (1974).

    Little wonder Blouin's ArtInfo blared Alexander Calder Steals the Show!

    They came by the thousands, solo, as well as in groups large, small and otherwise. Mostly though they came in pairs -- best friends, lovers, partners, tag teams. Sometimes they simply paired at the Fair. Two divided by none; each and every one enjoying the inaugural Art Miami New York.
