FAURSCHOU FOUNDATION NYC OPENING – DECEMBER 2019

We are honored to be supporting, in conjunction with Artory, the Faurschou Foundation Brooklyn opening. The Foundation already includes permanent exhibition spaces in Copenhagen and Beijing, and a biannual pop-up space in Venice.

The Foundation will inaugurate Faurschou New York with The Red Bean Grows in the South, a group exhibition centered on concepts of dreams and longing, featuring major large-scale and experiential works. Many of the works are from the Foundation’s collection, and are by a diverse array of international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Georg Baselitz, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Cai Guo-Qiang, Tracey Emin, Omer Fast, Anselm Kiefer, Edward and Nancy Reddin Kienholz, Christian Lemmerz, Paul McCarthy, Richard Mosse, Yoko Ono, Robert Rauschenberg, Alison Saar, Danh Vo, and Yu Hong. Works in the exhibition span a variety of media and explore conceptual themes such as violence, war, politics, idealism, and escapism, as well as hope, dreams, desire, lust, and longing. The idea of longing, in particular, is manifest throughout the exhibition in different ways, be it a sense of longing for someone (as in a loved one) or for something (as in a better future). The works resonate strongly as individual pieces, but also take on new meaning when placed in dialogue with one another.

The newly renovated 12,000 square-foot industrial warehouse in Greenpoint, will give the Foundation a new platform to showcase large-scale installations and experiential works from Faurschou’s collection, thematic group shows centered on the human condition and experience, and solo presentations of acclaimed artists from across the globe.

In addition to temporary exhibitions, some large-scale works from the Foundation’s collection will regularly be on view, allowing Faurschou to make more of the works in its collection publicly accessible. As with all of Faurschou Foundation’s permanent exhibition spaces, Faurschou New York will be free and open to the public.

Public opening hours starting December 16th, 2019 from 12 PM – 7 PM, Wednesday through Sunday.

THE ILLUMINATI BALL – OCTOBER 4, 2019


AN IMMERSIVE THEATER EVENT
AT A HISTORIC TEMPLE IN NEW YORK CITY

PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in attending, please fill out this required application

The most thrilling, surreal, unique and immersive masquerade ball in the world. 

Indulge in a surreal and unforgettable experience where you’ll be led through an exploration of the myth and mystery of the Illuminati by sirens and sailors, mermaids and sacred cows, barons and baronesses.

Explore your deepest desires with fearless fire performers, provocative dancers and interactive experiences unfolding continuously throughout three sprawling floors in our stunning Illuminati temple. Be sure to say hi to the NYC EVENT PRO team behind the bar!

The Illuminati Ball is brought to you by Speakeasy Dollhouse and is sponsored by Hiatus Tequila, Glyph, and Communal Brands

Hiatus Tequila set out to find a family-owned distillery in the place that gave tequila its name. In the town of Tequila, in Jalisco, Mexico, they found a family that makes award-winning tequila—traditionally, transparently, and passionately.  Hiatus Tequila is naturally clean yet complex, ideal for sipping neat, but also shines in a cocktail. 

Glyph is the first whiskey ever to be made at the molecular level without any barrel aging. The company uses analytical chemistry to identify the specific molecules responsible for the unique flavors, aromas, and characteristics of various spirits, sources them pure from more efficient sources in nature (like other plants, fruits, and yeasts), then uses these molecules — or ‘notes’ — as building blocks to create their own original profiles of whiskeys.

Communal Brands create classic wine for modern people. They only work with small growers that farm sensibly and produce wine in a traditional manner. They collaborate with their wine makers to design artistic labels which offer a visual tasting.

The Chimney x Ulmer Arts Exhibit – June 22nd, 2019

Join us this Saturday for the Chimney’s opening of “The Chimney x Ulmer Arts” – a group exhibition curated by Clara Darrason & Jennifer Houdrouge and organized in collaboration with Ulmer Arts and Tungsten Partners.

The exhibition is being held in the historic William Ulmer Brewery located in Bushwick and runs through July 28th. We’ll be there serving Bluejacket Brewery craft beers during the opening reception. 

 The William Ulmer Brewery is an adaptive reuse project located at 81 Beaver Street, on the corner of Belvidere and Beaver Streets in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The 60,000 square foot structure was constructed in 1872 as one of Brooklyn’s oldest breweries in the Rundbogenstil Romanesque revival style by architect Theobald Engelhardt. This historic building symbolizes an era of Brooklyn’s history that defined and helped to develop the neighborhood of Bushwick.

The former Ulmer Brewery will be reimagined and historically renovated to house an ecosystem of modern creative users with a shared sense of values and community. Through this revival, Ulmer Arts marks the first effort to fully utilize this property since the Brewery ceased operations during Prohibition a century ago. For this first collaboration, The Chimney takes over six large rooms in order to present large installations and works by nine American and international artists.

On the ground floor, the first room welcomes the works of Yasue Maetake (Japan) and Andrew Erdos (USA). Using glass as his primary medium, Erdos explores the possibility of land formation, the erosion of matter and the passage of time on our landscapes. Maetake’s mixed-media sculptural works investigate the liveliness of matter, artifact’s material and expressive qualities as well as the infinite possibilities of forms.

The second room contains the works of three artists: Desire Moheb Zandi (Turkey), Riitta Ikonen (Finland) and Sara Mejia Kriendler (USA and Colombia).  

Desire Moheb Zandi’s works Volcanic (2019) and Emancipation/Plantasia (2019) consist in two suspended tapestries made of various textiles such as wool, rubber, plastic, paint and paper. From an early age, the artist has found both personal and cultural identity through the hours spent watching her grandmother weave in her childhood home, Turkey. Influenced by her personal history with textiles and its countless sculptural possibilities, Moheb Zandi combines found materials with traditional modes of textile fabrication. By manipulating the surface of the fabric and playing with formal arrangement, Moheb Zandi constructs horizontally-layered visual compositions. 

Part of a series of works titled “Me Again” about climate change, Riitta Ikonen’s wearable fabric sculptures represent an insect at a magnified scale namely, a moth and a beetle. Her fascination for the natural realm is accompanied by an ecological concern: the increasing disappearance of one of the most mysterious and overlooked species – insects. Ikonen expressed: “Our eyes and ears might not pick up all the fragile achievements of the small and quiet ones.” By creating pieces of imperceptible creatures integrated within a human habitat, Ikonen celebrates the fragile beauty of our ecosystem and the incredible diversity of the million species living  on our planet.

In “Running Out of Ink,” Sara Mejia Kriendler weaves palm leaves through the gridded pages of a notebook. This series is inspired by Robin Crusoe – the story of a castaway stranded on a deserted island for 28 years.  To stay sane Robinson keeps a journal using ink he salvaged from his ship before it sank.  But he is running out of ink.  This series imagines what happens when he does. Kriendler seeks to reconnect with raw materials as opposed to manufactured ones.  Facing the possibility of environmental collapse, this work considers our dependence on the manufactured and imagines what could happen when we are forced to start from scratch. 

In the following third room, Matt Taber (USA) created a table whose surface appears as a static cut-out of the ocean.  As an object of design and art, Taber approaches the boundary of an object of utility that, by design, attempts to reconcile its entropic environment.  For Taber, the sea is a platform.  Without a fixed architecture, its movements adhere to the tidal forces of the Moon and the Sun acting on the Earth.  As algorithms alienate our behaviors, a cybernetic solitude aligns us with the sailor who encounters the universal mind and memory “from swerve of shore to bend of bay.”  Named after Marcel Broodthaers work of the same title, “A Voyage on the North Sea” is a platform for others to conflate modern life with the systemic mysticism that guides our desires. 

On the second floor, Aaron Taylor Kuffner (USA) created an immersive and sonic installation of his ongoing Sonic Kinetic Sculptures called Gamelatrons. Kuffner’s Gamelatrons are made of traditional bronze, brass and iron instruments. Drawing from Indonesia’s gamelan tradition, Kuffner roboticizes these gongs with newly designed musical compositions. Turning ancient instrument such as Indonesian Gamelan into hand-crafted sculptures, the artist exposes viewers to the profound nature of musical resonance, its effect on the body and psyche and retrieves the spiritual objective of ancient Indonesian ceremonies. This room provides a respite for visitors.

In the room to the left, the paintings of Lino Bernabe (USA and Cuba) explore the notion of time and the effect of the moving picture through the medium of painting. By applying concepts that pertain to the field of cinema, Bernabe’s paintings animate under RGB sequenced lights. He uses colored light to divide one image into three images. Red light is scene one, green light is scene two, blue light is scene three. The sequencing of RGB light produces an unfolding narrative, enabling the two-dimensional paintings to expand into the dimension of time. The motion of figures perceived from the change in colored light frequencies produces a narrative scene that questions the sociological and physiological implications of each primary color: red, cyan, green, magenta, blue and yellow. The painted scenes are fleeting moments observed and witnessed by the artist in the streets of his hometown in Miami.

On the third floor, Nelly Zagury (France) presents The Giant Stalker & The Cannibal Flower  (2019) – a 3 dimensional painting inviting the audience to experience the theatrical aspect of her dreams. Playing with iconic myth, surreal characters and erotic fantasy, Nelly Zagury’s works are filled with symbolism that furthers one’s understanding of femininity and eroticism.

The Chimney is also pleased to present its second publication “a tall action is not a height” made on the occasion of Autumn Ahn’s (USA) performance-based exhibition at the Chimney in 2017. Acting as an extension of her exhibition, the publication reveals Ahn’s performance under a new light and offers insights in regards to her creative process. The publication includes essays by the scholar Asli Seven, the Chimney directors, Clara Darrason and Jennifer Houdrouge, the artist Autumn Ahn and the curator Anissa Touati. Photographs of Autumn Ahn’s performance will also be on view.

Palaver Strings x Groupmuse – May 17th, 2019

We’re excited to announce our next Massivemuse with our friends, Groupmuse and Palaver Strings.

Palaver is the conductor-less string symphony of activist-musicians on a mission — to bring communities together and catalyze important conversations through the shared experience of the glorious music they make.

They’ve Massive’d on both coasts and it’s always a smash when they come to the Big Apple. This time, they’ve got a program of new works and Bach — his sublime cantata “Komm Jesu Komm” and his shattering, explosive, and legendary Chaconne in D Minor for Solo Violin arranged for the full band.

To present this year’s performance, we have the honor to partner with the Colonial Dames of America – the oldest colonial lineage society for women in the United States, and stewards over the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Gardens. It’s one of the few remaining pre-1800 buildings in Manhattan and the landscaped grounds coming alive in May amongst the massive steel and glass neighbors is a sight to see. The museum and gardens are open prior to the performance, so please come early to to enjoy a guided tour of this landmarked historical site!

We’ll reach into the past, we’ll revel in the present, we’ll welcome in the future.
