Parade | Celebrate Israel Parade


In 1965, thousands walked down Riverside Drive in support of the young State of Israel. This impromptu walk evolved into the Salute to Israel Parade. It has become the world’s largest gathering in celebration of Israel attracting worldwide media. The Parade enables the tri-state community to celebrate in a non-partisan, apolitical show of unity with Israel. In 2011 it was decided to change the name of the Parade in order to focus on celebrating the vibrant and diverse country of Israel. The Parade features over 30,000 marchers representing many organizations. Hundreds of thousands enthusiastic spectators gather to watch American and Israeli community leaders and dignitaries, entertainers, artists, musicians, dancers, celebrities, floats and marching bands.

Fair | Common Silence: 8th Annual Zine and Photo Book Fair


The Zine and Photo Book Fair, entitled Common Silence, invokes the utopian notion of printed matter’s ability to enact social change through small-scale action to generate micro-policies. Through his selection of works, curator Mauricio Marcin questions how the gesture of fixing a word or image on paper has the potential to incite social change. In the last decade there has been a tremendous influx in self publishing throughout Latin America, particularly in Mexico. This is largely a result of artists utilizing independent publishing as a political and artistic platform for direct communications; thus allowing the self-published book, fanzine, and maquettes to function outside of commercial intermediaries and institutional entities and empowering artistic content to transcend traditional forms of production and dissemination. The selection of participants in the fair, all Latin American based, seeks to offer the public a concise overview of this multiplicity of editorial exercises, ranging from photography and contemporary art to poetry and literature.
