Sean Gaskell plays the West African Kora (Harp) - Cafe Sole
January 24, 2013 - Jersey City

Sean Gaskell plays traditional music of the Mandinka people on the 21 string West African Kora. The music is traditionally played by Griots (Gree-ohs, oral/musical historians). The Kora is a very melodic and peaceful instrument, which can often feel contrary to a repertoire which tells ancient stories of war and hardship,while praising people of high political status and those who helped expand the Mande empire. While the Kora is only 300 years old, some of the songs date back as many as 800 years to the founding of the Mande empire, which took place in Mali in the mid 13th century. Sean Gaskell has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh, both of Brikama, Gambia. He has also studied under Kane Mathis, a Kora player formerly based in Seattle who has lead groups such as "The Kora Band" and "The Sahel Band". Sean released his first solo album "Kora Music of West Africa" in March of 2012. He has performed at the Kartong Festival in Gambia, the Dombondir Festival in Senegal, the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle and at the Naked Arts- a weekly series featuring raw, traditional music in Charlotte, NC. "Sean's playing and singing are right on when it comes to traditional Mandinka music. Very nice indeed!" says Roderic Knight- a retired professor of Ethnomusicology at Oberlin College Musical Conservatory- Ohio

Cristina Grajales Gallery is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition of furniture and lighting designer Christophe Côme, Material Transformations. Based in Paris, Côme creates sculptural furniture and lighting design through his manipulation of industrial materials, resulting in objects that are elegant and timeless. Material Transformations will present a range of new, exquisitely crafted furniture and lighting pieces, including cabinets, screens, and coffee tables. In addition to his signature glass roundels, Côme will incorporate hand-glazed tiles, enameled copper, colored glass and gilded wood into his uniquely handcrafted wrought iron forms. The addition of these vividly colored and richly textured materials continues Côme’s tradition of juxtaposing the raw with the refined, all while maintaining the sophisticated, graceful style for which he is so well known. Born in Normandy, France in 1965, Côme began his artistic career as a sculptor, training under Louis Derbe. Working primarily in cast bronze, Côme’s original creations were sculpture and jewelry until the mid-1990s, when his focus shifted to furniture forms. His work has a distinctive style of pure elegance that is balanced with a contemporary outlook. His sculptural perspective emanates through his furniture and lighting designs, elevating every day objects into works of art. In addition to numerous important private collections, Côme’s work is featured in Chanel boutiques in Paris, Beirut, and Shanghai. Please join us for the opening reception at Cristina Grajales Gallery on Thursday, November 8th from 6PM-8PM.

Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor - La MaMa E.T.C.
Through January 27, 2013 - NYC

With humor and vision, "Kane and Habil in the Pizza Parlor" ( explores the original family sins that are still impacting our civilization. The title characters are the children of Adam and Eve. The play is a comedy, written and directed by Serge Ernandez. The production features an adept cast headed by Obie-winner Sheila Dabney as Eve, who also directs the play's chorus. Ernandez is a veteran of The Living Theatre; Dabney is a senior member of La MaMa's Great Jones Rep. La MaMa E.T.C. will present the play's premiere run January 18 to 27 in its second-floor Club. Like other theatrical works drawn from the creation story (notably the first act of "The Apple Tree," based on Mark Twain's "The Diaries of Adam and Eve"), this piece takes a lighthearted approach. There are wit and innocence, likeable characters, and an overall optimistic philosophy. The play contrasts the legacy of Kane--hatred, judgment and separation--with the legacy of Habil -- compassion, forgiveness and one-ness. The latter is submitted as the path to free humanity from its guilt and aggression, enabling it instead to love. Playwright Serge Ernandez explains, "It is a comedy where we laugh often and easily, as we must laugh at ourselves from time to time and self-reflect so we can evolve."

One of Lin Tianmiao's clearest recollections of her childhood in China was helping her mother sew clothes for the family.

She used this in one of her first major works called The Proliferation of Thread Winding in 1995, which began her career as an artist and is included in the exhibition. Her use of the technique continues today and can be seen in such recent works as All the Same.

Born Out of Necessity - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 28, 2013 - Midtown

Showcasing objects that adhere to the traditional view of design as a tool for problem-solving, Born out of Necessity offers close examination of the problems themselves -- whether urgent, foreseen, or imagined. From objects that respond to pressing needs in developing countries to new solutions that are tailored to the urban environment, the exhibition examines how design intervenes across a range of experiences, including medical emergencies and natural disasters. Other objects demonstrate how products created to address specific challenges for people with disabilities can provide solutions that improve everyone's life. Drawing on the narrative power of design, Born out of Necessity addresses a host of complex cultural developments, such as the need to incorporate environmental responsibility in everyday life, our attempts to marry ancient religious beliefs with contemporary mores, and the desire to anticipate and prevent technological and ecological quagmires.

Eyes Closed/Eyes Open: Recent Acquisitions in Drawings - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through January 28, 2013 - New York

This exhibition is culled from the past two years of acquisitions by MoMA's Department of Drawings. Anchored in various explorations of the late 1960s, these works reveal a range of creative, intellectual, and critical impulses -- whether serving as an intimate record of the artist's practice, or purposefully crafted to address an assumed wider audience. German artist Franz Erhard Walther created a suite of "work drawings" to illustrate (both functionally and conceptually) his First Work Series (1963-69), a group of 58 interactive sculptural objects, on display at the Museum for the first time since their original presentation here in 1969. While roughly contemporary, Willem de Kooning's "Eyes-Closed" drawings of 1966, which were sketched blindly by the artist, offer a counterpoint to Walther's project and seem to embrace the traditional role of drawing as a tool of private expression, while Martha Rosler's Bringing the War Home: House Beautiful photomontage series of 1967-72 turns a critical eye to the era's sociopolitical context and expanding media sphere.

'Arousal' - Able Fine Art NY Gallery
Through January 29, 2013 - New York

“Arousal” January 9- 29, 2013 Opening Reception: Thursday, January 10th, 6-8pm Participating Artists: Yona Tukuser Laurel Shute Tadashi Hashimoto Wan Kim Able Fine Art NY Gallery is pleased to present the works of Yona Tukuser, Laurel Shute, Tadashi Hashimoto, and Wan Kim. Each artist presents distinctive work that communicates a strong visual language that address contrasting relationships, emotions, and concepts through a variety of mediums. Yona Tukuser creates exceptional depth in her paintings through expressive brushstrokes and complex and contrasting color. Her work is filled with personal expressionism and psychological meaning that addresses the contrasting issues and themes of death, despair, passion, fear, and love. Laurel Shute creates a strong and dynamic visual language rooted in her perceptions of color, space, and shape in her natural surroundings. Her work has developed in art from painting to large sculptures that reflect her empathetic relationship with her natural environment. Similarly, Tadashi Hashimoto focuses on large scale and site specific outdoor sculptures that define and open space suggesting volume and void. He plays with different materials and textures to address and display the paradoxes of mass and space, stability and movement. Wan Kim’s artwork is a reflection of his intrigue with line and space and their spiritual and metaphorical implications. What defines his work is his unique creation of rough linear texture. The meaning of his art resides in the Oriental philosophy on straight lines and their portrayal of the spiritual world of ‘Zen’.

Through January 30, 2013 - West Village

The Children's Museum of the Arts presents the most comprehensive collection of works to-date by visionary artist and MC, RAMMELLZEE. Entitled The RAMMELLZEE Galaxseum, the exhibition will reveal the inner workings of RAMMELLZEE's artistic vision and trace his career trajectory which began in the 1970s as a pioneering "Wild Style" graffiti writer and hip hop MC and evolved in manifesto and medium to the far reaches of the imagination. RAMMELLZEE's legend grew in a Tribeca loft known as the "Battle Station," where the artist conceived a new vision for the future – a self-made mythology, known as Gothic Futurism, with its own set of heroes and villains, which he called Recyclers and Trashers or more notably, Garbage Gods and Monster Models. For over 30 years, RAMMELLZEE inhabited the universe he created, building layer upon layer of legend and legacy. The RAMMELLZEE Galaxseum showcases a visual encyclopedia of RAMMELLZEE's artworks including full-body life-sized costumes, masks, character frescoes, figurines, large scale paintings and video and audio recordings from some of his performances. Suspended from the gallery's ceiling are RAMMELLZEE's legendary letter racers, or car-like vehicles representing letters of the alphabet seeking to "break free." In addition to his visual artwork, RAMMELLZEE is well-known for his contributions to hip-hop lyricism and vocalization, as illustrated in the documentaries Style Wars and Wild Style, as well as the hip-hop single Beat Bop, which was produced by Jean-Michael Basquiat and consists of a 10 minute narrative rap by RAMMELLZEE and K-Rob that is considered to be one of the most essential hip-hop recordings ever made.
