Simultaneously nurturing and gently admonishing, Tapp Francke’s latest solo exhibition at gallery nine5 "this is you" includes a back room installation that allows participants to fully absorb the all-encompassing power of color and self-reflection.
Architects Gordon Matta-Clark, Bill Owens, and James Howard Silvers' collective works represent a transitional period in American suburban life; a time when American consumerism was at its largest expansion and postwar suburban fantasy collided with the reality of gas shortages, "stagflation," and a growing unease with the isolation associated with "bedroom communities". The work of these artists and architects is part of a moment when conformity and the established order were being called into question on a mass scale as the "counter culture" movement of the sixties resonated with those affected by the faltering economy of the seventies. At carriage trade Gallery through May 18th.
"Horizons," at the Cheryl Hazen Gallery, showcases three artists: Russell Sharon, Jeff Muhs, and Bradley Narduzzi Rex. The exhibit investigates the divergence of space and the significance of different elements coexisting harmoniously.
Environmentalists’ beef with the Keurig system is in the single-use, non-recyclable nature of the packaging, given the implications for our waste stream. The individual parts of a K-Cup (plastic, paper and foil) could theoretically be recycled on their own, but the combination is too small and messy for recycling facilities to be able to sort. So our only choice is to throw the whole K-Cup pack, lock stock and barrel, into the garbage.

Primarily based on the relationship between the body and the execution of performance, Leftover of Endurance is a case study of the radical transformation of the social structures.
