Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Opening Reception | Healing Thru Art: A Supernatural Ceremony


You may recognize Billy Waldman from Harmonie Korines coming-of-age film Kids. You may also recognize him from Spike Jonze's film Rubbish Heap. Waldman grew up in the downtown skate scene. As an adult he moved to Brazil and opened an art gallery with his wife Juliana called East Side Galeria de Arte Comtemporanea, in Sao Paulo. There, they brought New York street art to the streets of Brazil. They moved back to New York several years ago with their children, and now their goal is to bring Brazilian Naif Folk Art to the streets here. The artists involved with the show wanted to present their work in an environment such as “the artist outpost” because rather than use art to promote an activist cause happening in the world today, they wanted to simply use their art as a way to heal. Therefore, this show represents all the issues that need attention in today’s world, ranging from global warming, gender inequality, the destruction of our planet and equality for all. The way to be heard and to heal is through art.

Author Reading | Afternoon of a Faun: Accused of Sexual Assault


When an old flame accuses him of sexual assault in her memoir, expat English journalist Marco Rosedale is brought rapidly and inexorably to the brink of ruin. His reputation and livelihood at stake, Marco confides in a close friend, who finds himself caught between the obligations of friendship and an increasingly urgent desire to uncover the truth. This unnamed friend is drawn, magnetized, into the orbit of the woman at the center of the accusation--and finds his position as the safely detached narrator turning into something more dangerous. Soon, the question of his own complicity becomes impossible to avoid. With author James Lasdun.

Author Reading | Loudermilk: Or, the Real Poet; Or, the Origin of the World


It’s the end of summer 2003. George W. Bush has recently declared the mission in Iraq accomplished, the unemployment rate is at its highest in years, and Martha Stewart has just been indicted for insider trading. Meanwhile, somewhere in the Midwest, Troy Augustus Loudermilk (fair-haired, statuesque, charismatic) and his companion Harry Rego (definitely none of those things) step out of a silver Land Cruiser and onto the campus of The Seminars, America’s most prestigious creative writing program, to which Loudermilk has recently been accepted for his excellence in poetry. Loudermilk, however, has never written a poem in his life. With author Lucy Ives.
