Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

Dance Performance |
Trained as a dancer, artist Alexandra Pirici fuses choreography, performance, and visual arts across her practice. In many of her artworks, she uses enactment and embodiment as strategies to reimagine historical events, re-mediate internet memes and digital images, and perform sculptural additions to public monuments. For this performance, Pirici invites a group of performers to build a moving, porous threshold at the gate that separates the eastern and western Rail Yards. For the work, Pirici creates an embodied and flexible architectural "boundary" from the performers' bodies, but one that can be negotiated and transformed. The performers' movements reference historical and aesthetic thresholds both real and imagined, with different functions, such as a barricade from the Paris Commune and the fictional borders built by war and conflict in Francisco Goya's iconic "Disasters of War" prints. As the performers' bodies and movements shift, passersby will be able to pass through, but not without having to encounter the performers in one way or another.

A plant may just relieve an itch, heal a sore or more than occasionally hold life and death within their aesthetically pleasing shapes. They may be palliatives to the ills of daily lives or ease us through our passing. To seek out nature’s healing properties within the plant world and transform it into the matter of art was the quest of the five artists:  C Bangs, Nancy Campbell, James Martin, Susan Rostow and Mary Ting.

Opening Reception |
The Romantic Sublime consists of private views of the New York skyline from the rooftops of peoples’ homes and offices. The figures seen from behind, gazing into the distance reference Caspar David Friedrich’s romantic landscape paintings, especially Monk by the Sea (1810) and Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog (1818). The individual experience of the divine and nature in Friedrich is replaced with the individual experience of the modern city. The private views of the New York skyline are charged with paradoxical notions of hope and futurity, on the one hand, and abandonment and morbidity, on the other. Paul Gisbrecht is a Soviet Union-born German artist. He was a DAAD grant holder and received his MFA in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute. Amongst other awards, Gisbrecht has received the Sony World Photography Award, the German Young Photographers Award and the Hasselblad Masters Award. Gisbrecht works in photography, video, sculpture and installation. He is currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York.
