  2. THE CISNEROS FONTANALS ART FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES IMPULSE, REASON, SENSE, CONFLICT. ABSTRACT ART FROM THE ELLA FONTANALS-CISNEROS COLLECTION

    Art

    The exhibit will open on December 3rd to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach 2014

     

     

    Impulse, Reason, Sense, Conflict. Abstract Art from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection attempts to focus on the typical features of abstraction that still permeate in art production today and define it as a movement instead of an aesthetic category. The exhibit is divided in five areas: Abstract Impulses is dedicated to the crisis in representation and the rupture in mimetic representation. Laboratory of Reason refers to the questioning of the nature, essence and even the existence of art. Uncommon Senses relates to the integration and crossover of other mediums and other art forms that required the use of multiple senses, both from its makers and art’s viewers. Spatial Conflicts touches on Abstraction as a radical change in the conception of spatiality. The last section Expanded Field deals with many artists’ experimentation with non-traditional media like photography, film and collage. This group of works will only exist in a separate form in the catalogue. In the exhibition space they will be presented within the other curatorial groupings.

     

    The exhibition includes 101 pieces by 72 artists from different generations and latitudes, who share their interpretations and philosophies of abstraction. This exhibit will also be the first CIFO exhibit curated by the foundation itself.

     

     

    Art Basel  Miami Beach hours:

    December 3, 4, 6, 7 | 9am – 4pm

     

    Please join us for Breakfast from 9am – Noon

  3. Look Alive Fest ft. Stephen O’Malley from SUNN O))), Liturgy, Diamond Terrifier

    12-12-05-SOMA-PRINT-72DPI-ONLINE

    Look Alive Fest is honored to welcome Stephen O’Malley (Paris), a/k/a SOMA, to Churchill’s Pub on Friday, December 5 for an extremely rare stateside performance of his solo work. We’re also excited to announce that transcendental US black metal shredders Liturgy (NYC) will perform as a full band, featuring singer Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, guitarist Bernard Gann, drummer Greg Fox, and bassist Tyler Dusenbury.

    O’Malley is a founding member of legendary drone metal projects SUNN O))) and Burning Witch. His body of work features collaborations with Scott Walker, Merzbow, Boris, Keiji Haino, Nurse With Wound, Oren Ambarchi, and many others. O’Malley was featured in the 2012 Whitney Biennial.

    Stephen’s performance at Look Alive Fest will “expand on the O))) principles, albeit perhaps with a more sculptural and angular direction; the extended solid and geometric aspects of the guitar and amplifiers, sound pressure, volume and temporal structure as ambiguous and solitary form.” The performance will also include a screening of the film Unground by artists Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert, who represented Luxembourg during the 2009 Venice Biennale.

    Experimental electronic musician Diamond Terrifier (NYC) will provide direct support, along with sludgy locals Nixa and psychedelic garage-punk rippers Wastelands.

  9. MONOTONE DEC 13th NINA BELIEF LIVE

    photo

    There comes a point when one must ask about beauty within disfigurement. We are after all attracted to quite an ugly sound at times which we believe with all our heart to be rather lovely. It’s the very fabric of our being that tells us Yes! We want this and have no shame embracing a twisted, battered track… dancing proudly to her as if we own the night. So on this next Monotone we bring you The Nina Belief Project. Beautifully- Ugly in it’s own right. A live performance by yours truly. Catch me at the stroke of Midnight.
