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’.

The RAMMELLZEE Galaxseum - Children's Museum of the Arts
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.

He lives in Westchester, where he photographs the Hudson Valley landscape during his hikes. Mr. Uricchio studied photography at St. John's University, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Arts. His work has appeared in several libraries, such as The Architecture for Art Gallery in Hillsdale, NY; The Salmagundi Aft Gallery in New York City; The Rockefeller State Park Art Gallery in Tarrytown, NY; and The Mill Street Loft Art Gallery in Beacon, NY, where he won an honorable mention award for the image "Bahama Sunrise." His images are on display at the Art for Health Program at the Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt, NY, where two images are included in the private collection, and six images are displayed in the MRI Suite. Additionally, Uricchio photographed several museums and their works of art for the web site architectureforart.com, and has edited many videos about museums, their art, artists, and architects.

Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and later became a STOMP! cast member. For its 15th Anniversary season, the company arrives at The Joyce with two New York City premieres. Fireweather, set to "The Mission of Virgil," a Charles Wuorinen score for two pianos inspired by Dante's Inferno, is informed both by the literary roots of the music and by visual art, ranging from the vibrant watercolors of William Blake to the grotesque engravings of Gustave Dore. The second premiere, Left Exit, examines spirituality, faith, and religion and includes recorded spoken word drawn from texts that illuminate the clash between secular reasoning and organized religion.

Museum as Hub: Walking Drifting Dragging - New Museum
Through February 03, 2013 - New York

"Walking Drifting Dragging" is a one-month-long presentation of works by four emerging artists/collectives: Eunji Cho (Seoul), Ellie Ga (New York), Paulo Nazareth (Belo Horizonte, Brazil), and Mriganka Madhukaillya and Sonal Jain of Desire Machine Collective (Guwahati, India). The artists share a common preoccupation with walking, roaming, and drifting--moving slowly, close to the ground--and documenting their travels within highly personal terms that blend cartography with memory. All four have embarked on epic journeys, such as crossing an entire continent on foot or floating through the darkness of the Arctic for months--each one motivated by a different impulse or political perspective. Collectively, the artists work against contemporary notions of immediacy and access in a globalized world where any data point appears to be a search away and other cultures can seem legible with a quick round-trip. Their works dramatize distance between countries and cultures, across borders and time zones, to demonstrate how layered and complex a local stretch of terrain can be. "Walking Drifting Dragging" is presented in collaboration with the Museum as Hub and organized by Lauren Cornell, Curator of the 2015 Triennial, Digital Projects, and Museum as Hub.

dreamgirls - 133rd street arts center
Through February 03, 2013 - new york

DREAMGIRLS is a musical based on the show business aspirations and successes of renowned R&B acts: The Supremes, The Shirelles, James Brown and others. The musical is a classic, "rags to riches" tale of three young African American female singers who begin as innocents and ultimately triumph over jealousies, deceptions and a ruthless music industry. The Harlem Repertory Theatre presents an intimate chamber version of DREAMGIRLS with a cast of 10 that will be performed in the heart of Harlem. The twelve-time AUDELCO-nominated Harlem Repertory Theatre is continuing its 2012-2013 season with an encore performance of its well reviewed production of Dreamgirls, performed as an intimate chamber version of the classic R&B musical drama. Ten talented actor/singers bring this dazzling rags to riches story to life in two settings: Act One will be played in the proscenium theatre at the 133rd Street Arts Center, while Act Two will be performed in the semi round with the actors performing onstage and around the audience. Two-time AUDELCO winner, Keith Lee Grant, directed and choreographed the production. Mr. Grant shifts the focus of this iconic musical from flashy sets and costumes to the moment-to-moment emotional development of the characters: from aspiring novices in the 1960s R&B music industry to highly polished –albeit somewhat jaded- international stars.
