KiptonART Rising 2009 Winner, Serge Strosberg in Paris Group Exhibition

Opening tomorrow in the group exhibition "Cabinet de Curios" in Paris, France are works by KiptonART Rising 2009 Winner, Serge Strosberg.  The title of the show, translated as the Cabinet of Curiosities, takes its meaning from the Renaissance term where unusual and foreign objects were stored, such as historic relics, animal skeletons (sometimes fake) and even art.  The exhibition, held at the Galerie Xavier Nicolas near the Picasso Museum, will display mediums of all sorts including paintings, sculpture and furnishing designs.

KiptonART Rising 2010 Winner, Avery McCarthy Image in the NYTIMES!

In today's Theater section of the New York Times the play "Ideal", penned by famous writer Ayn Rand and being performed on East 59th Street, is dismally reviewed.  The greatest part of the article is the vibrant and intense photograph floating above the text.  KiptonART Rising 2010 Winner, Avery McCarthy shot two characters gripping one another in what looks to be a heated moment of rough sensuality.  Beautifully shot, McCarthy's signature focus on light and shape is captured.  An image may be worth a thousand words, unless the words beneath do not measure to its greatness.  Congratulations Avery!

Check out the new KiptonART video posted online covering the opening night of the "Fine Future Perfect" exhibition. "Fine Future Perfect" is currently showing at 75 Wall Street through July 31st.

KiptonART Featured Artist: Aphrodite Navab

Newly registered artist, Aphrodite Navab is a Persian photographer based in New York City. Her most recent work explores gender identity, taking on the form of a hermaphrodite in public. Aphrodite's work has invoked female suppression in both Eastern and Western culture, on a global scale. KiptonART caught up with Aphrodite to discuss her current influences and the future of her photography.

Who/what is your biggest influence or inspiration right now?
My cultures and my children are the two biggest sources of inspiration for me. I was born in Iran to an Iranian father and a Greek mother. Persian and Greek cultures have never ceased to influence and motivate me. The curiosity of my children and the way that they learn the world through their body, inspires me in my performance-based art and photography.

KiptonART Art Talk with Georgia Tapert, Interior Designer

Who are your favorite KiptonART Artists?Why?
I like Jade Doskow - I love the way she captures the light in her photographs. I also like Paul Robinson and the collage-like feel of his work. My husband collects photography and I always had gravitated to drawings but I find more and more I'm getting excited about photography. I also like Stephen Yates and JS Tully.

What is the last exhibition you attended?
The Bronzino Drawings at the Met. As I mentioned above, I love drawings. My dream is to one day have a whole wall covered in drawings of different shapes and sizes.

New York City Ballet's Dance with the Dancers

For the first time ever New York City Ballet's Dance with the Dancers event on June 14 will feature a video produced by and starring NYCB's roster of illustrious dancers. Shot as a music video featuring a new original song "Twirl" written and performed by NYCB's own, this brilliantly produced film takes you behind the scenes at the David H. Koch Theater revealing the "glitz and glam" life of the NYCB dancer. This wistfully crafted and incredibly witty video is the direct result of the dancers' seemingly endless talents that extend far beyond the stage and ballet studio. Illuminating the char, charisma and dynamo personalities of NYCB's top-notch dancing crew, this video (and the live dance-off judged by the crowd that will follow) are simply not to be missed!

Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus
Eyebeam Gallery's latest group show addresses the recent explosion of participatory mechanisms across technology and media in an attempt to expose these models' inner conflicts and increase their transparency. The thirteen large-scale works on display offer a welcome complexity that draws even the most indolent gallery-goer into an active spectator-ship. This seemingly ironic call for audience participation establishes a firm distinction between collaboration and consensus, which Re:Group aims to extend into the current social, economic, and political archetypes around the work.

Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus is on view through August 7th at Eyebeam, 540 West 21st Street.
