The first time I met Michele Carlo was at the Moth. We were in line at the Bitter End; I'd seen her perform and introduced myself as a newbie. "Storytellers are the best group of people," she told me. "Come out with us after the show." At that point, Michele had been telling stories in New York for more than a decade. She'd been a performer since college, where she was in with the Lower East Side's hip, arty crowd. She'd created a burlesque show around a character ... Read More
Missing Unicorn posters have gone up all over Manhattan and beyond, while a billboard promises a reward on 104th and Broadway. According to the signs, the mythical animal was last seen entering Central Park at West 72nd street, and the public is encouraged to call the sightings hot-line with any leads. Mimicking those photocopied fliers publicizing a lost pet, the posters are the brainchild of artist Camomile Hixon, who has invited the entire city to join the ... Read More

Go Greene!

BY Emily Rems in Artsy |

I’m ashamed to admit it, but even though I’ve been doing movie commentaries for NPR’s New York affiliate, WNYC, for the past six months, I didn’t know until a couple of weeks ago that they had a live performance venue. Some friends tipped me off to a great show that was going on at WNYC’s Greene Space—a “new destination for artists and audiences created for live performances, signature WNYC radio shows, and video ...

Mandy Shadforth is an AMAZING award-winning contemporary artist from Queensland. This Aussie babe paints in a super realistic style, drawing her viewer into intimate details that would usually be overlooked.  Mandy paints with such control and depth.  She is able to manipulate her pop culture/natural images into mysterious kaleidoscopes of daydreams and bewilderment.  She just released her 2010 collection a few months ago and I am smitten.  ...

Once upon a time I met a beautiful Polish girl with killer blonde locks who had a penchant for photo negatives, her golden dog and art in most forms. She used to come to New York on the weekends and work at a museum in Connecticut during the weeks. After traveling to Poland, Berlin, Russia and more places I can't remember she decided to meet up with her partner in Paris and make a go of this business of collaboration, empowerment and curation in the art ...

There are many mind boggling and wondrous things hiding in the nooks, crannies and crevices of the internet.Every once and a while one of those things will hit me like a ton of bricks to the face, or in this case a couple hundred gallons of paint paired with a knack for stop motion cinematography.How do these two things work together so beautifully you might ask? Check  out this 9:55 long time-lapse video entitled Big Bang Big Boom depicting the beginning ... Read More

Art School Drop-In

BY emily dirienzo in Artsy |

Recently I coined the term school-sickness as a way of describing  the existential crisis many of us have when we’re reluctantly ripped from the protective womb of academia. Not only does the Brooklyn Skill Share have a remedy for the post-grad blues, but the grassroots organization offers a priceless experience for those of us who didn’t have the luxury of attending fancy art schools. Brooklyn Skill Share is organized and taught by local ... Read More
The amazing, BUST loving, performance artist Ann Magnuson is returning to NYC after nine years to bring us her newest performance piece DUELING HARPS.  In the piece Ann Magnuson and Adam Dugas battle it out vocally over the musical accompaniment of harps played by Mia Theodoratus and Alexander Rannie. Their melodic ammo includes familiar sounds from the likes of Henry Purcell’s Baroque art songs, Kraftwerk, Buffy St. Marie, Lee Hazlewood, and Pink ... Read More
