Today the Angel Orensanz Foundation blog is sharing with you four things: two artful events and two exhibitions you shouldn’t miss. Read along, enjoy and leave your comments bellow!
First off, The Camera Club of New York is hosting the third annual Zine and Self-Plubished Photo Book Fair this weekend. The fair highlights contemporary photography and recent artist publications and invites the public to mingle with people involved in the art publishing scene. For more info, just click here.
Also this weekend, the Taiwan-based multidisciplinary artist Chin Chin Yang will be performing “Kill Me or Change” in the Queens Museum of Art. He will suspend 30,000 aluminum cans (apparently the average number of cans a person throwns away in a lifetime) 30 ft above ground in a crane that will hover over the audience, to then be dropped in his head, in a colorful and striking display of how much waste we produce. Yang wants to show us, quite literally, the effects of personal polluting and he hopes the piece will be a wake up call for the audience to reexamine their waste habits.
Now for the last chance exhibitions that you should enjoy this weekend before they are gone for good. The first one is F-111, from the pop american artist James Rosenquist. The monumental installation is a compose of 23 panels installed in the Leo Catelli Gallery at the MoMA, telling the story: “flying through the flak of consumer society to question the collusion between the Vietnam death machine, consumerism, the media, and advertising.” as the artist explains.
The other exhibition is The Clock, an epic video by Christian Marclay that shows a 24 hour journey through the clocks of cinema. The Lincoln Center is presenting the whole 24 hours over the weekend in the David Rubenstein Atrium. Go in and enjoy classic moments of cinema, in reel and real time and see the seconds ticking in the film, as they tick in your watch. Because The Clock will stop running Wednesday.
