Wedesday This & That (Art Marathon)


Nymphoto's Picture of the Week © Yijun (Pixy) Liao

First off: Happy Birthday Hank! I ♥ You.

If you are in New York and want to see art: Vivianne Sassen is still on view at Danziger Projects (@ 534 West 24th Street). You can also take a workshop with Ms. Sassen in Italy in late April. Visit www.cesuralab.com to find out more.
Deborah Turbeville's work is at Staley Wise Gallery (560 Broadway, NYC) for a little longer (love those bathers!).

Pieter Hugo somewhat controversial Nollywood is being shown at Yossi Milo (525 West 25th Street, NYC) and le piece de resistance (but not for the faint of heart): Otto Dix at Neue Gallerie (@ 1048 Fifth Avenue, NYC). Peter Schjeldahl wrote a review for this week's New Yorker which is accompanied by a Audio Slide Show titled Weapons of Ambition, find it at: www.newyorker.com.

I really enjoy Yijun Liao's new work, an example above and more at www.bloodypixy.com. And Terry's Diary (www.terrysdiary.com) has really grown on me. Also online, a live stream of Marina Abramovic's MOMA performance: www.moma.org.

And of course Humble Arts' 31 Women in Art Photography is still on view at Affirmation Arts (523 W 37th Street, NYC) which includes work by Emily Shur, Brea Souders, Justine Reyes, Erica Larsen, Robin Schwartz (fellow animal lover) and many others.
Of course the other big group show right now is Whatever Was Splendid at Fotofest (this one in Houston)curated by fellow NYU alumn Aaron Schuhman. The show includes Jane Tam, Tema Stauffer, Hank Willis Thomas (the bday boy), Michael Schmelling, Will Steacy and many other talented artists . The Telegraph just wrote about it and you can read it at: www.telegraph.co.uk.

The Independent has a piece by Jason Florio about his walk through The Gambia.
And of course you can see more of Jason's work at: www.jasonflorio.com.

Knock yourself out ;) Ain't New York great? And the web is pretty neat too.
