New York: Brian Willmont: Vanitas

July 09, 2015 at Driscoll Babcock Galleries in New York.

Brian Willmont: Vanitas
July 9 – August 14, 2015
Project Space
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 9, 6-8PM

Driscoll Babcock Galleries presents Vanitas, a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Brian Willmont. Willmont’s current work offers a contemporary take on the tradition of symbolic vanitas still life painting, which throughout art history has functioned as a reminder of the passage of time and the transience of earthly life. Employing symbols that suggest fragile, fleeting states—flickering flames, melting candles, urns, roses, water droplets, and spider webs—Willmont creates uncanny still lifes whose seductive rendering and pastel palette belie their darker motifs.

Willmont’s unique visual language combines tromp l’oeil effects, abstraction and iconic symbolism, referencing the vernacular pop aesthetics of commercial airbrush techniques. Illusions of space collapse as Willmont’s symbols overlap and float against humming, pulsating backdrops, emphasizing the flatness of his picture plane. In this way, the artist also looks to the ubiquity of digital screens in contemporary visual culture and how images are experienced through the sleek, flat interface of our devices, bringing together the commercial and the fine art, the historical and the contemporary, in one endless scroll. Willmont’s work similarly blends the symbolic, the decorative and the abstract like successive screens, ultimately commenting on the history and nature of pictorial representation itself.

Queens: Passport Thursdays Outdoor International Dance, Music & Film Series: Korea

August 13, 2015 at Queens Museum in Queens.

The Queens Museum’s free summertime staple, Passport Thursdays: International Dance, Music, and Film Series, returns for another exciting season featuring some of the many international locales that fuel Queens’ cultural and artistic vitality. This year’s adventure includes stops in the Caribbean, Taiwan, India, Colombia, Korea, and South Africa. So leave your baggage at home and bring a picnic blanket out to Flushing Meadows Corona Park for an evening in the shadow of the majestic Unisphere. There will be free artmaking workshops for families before the films start, our galleries and café will remain open until 8pm, and we won’t let a little rain spoil the fun, we’ll just move the whole event indoors.

And if coming to the Park is a little out of the way, this year we are partnering with the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance to bring three of the films out to Rockaway. Destination Rockaway: Passport International Film Series will present three selections from Passport Thursdays in the Rockaway Community Garden. So whether you prefer the beach or the park, we hope you’ll join us on our journey of global sights and sounds.

Music: Korean Traditional Music & Dance Center

Founded in 1987 under Master Yoon Sook Park, the KTMDC is the oldest established Korean performing arts organization in New York City. Under the new Art director Yusun Kang, KTMDC strives to share and preserve Korea’s rich and vibrant culture with Korean-Americans and their neighbors. The program will include Floral Fan Dance, Korean Opera, Jindo Drum Dance, Samulnori (Korean Percussion Ensemble), and more.

Film: Miss Granny (Hwang Dong-hyuk, South Korea, 2014, 127min, Korean with English ST)

Her family and neighbors have long judged 70-year-old widow Mal-soon a stubborn crank, but when her daughter-in-law is hospitalized because of her hysterical temper, the family decides that it’s time for a nursing home. Overhearing her family’s intentions, Mal-soon goes to a photo studio to take a picture for her grave. The next day, she wakes up in the body of her 20-year-old self. She decides to enjoy her youth again and accepts her guitarist grandson’s invitation to join his band and enters a TV singing competition. Will this 70-year-old girl find the happiness she never had?

Co-presented with Korean Cultural Service NY

Date: Thursday, August 20th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $5
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY

“The Zombie of Great Peru” was written in 1697 by PierreCorneille Blessebois, murderer, arsonist, libertine, mercenary, galley slave, and man of letters.

Mr. Skinner will talk about the book, and read some juicy parts. Cold drinks will be on hand.

Doug Skinner has contributed to “Fate,” “The Fortean Times,” “Strange Attractor Journal,” “Cabinet,” and other fine periodicals. He has written many scores for dance and theater, especially for actor/clown Bill Irwin. His books include a collection of picture stories, “The Unknown Adjective,” as well as translations of Alphonse Allais, Isidore Isou, and Giovanni Battista Nazari.

Brooklyn: Charles Fort and the Forteans that Followed, an Illustrated Lecture with Doug Skinner

September 10, 2015 at Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn.

Date: Thursday, September 10th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue , 11215 Brooklyn NY

Tonight, Doug Skinner will tell the story of Charles Fort (1874-1932) and the fortean movements that he inspired. Fort wrote peculiar books containing catalogs of scientific anomalies and tongue-in-cheek speculation, written in his own bizarre and impressionistic style. Originally championed by writers like Theodore Dreiser and Ben Hecht, Fort was later taken up by ufologists, cryptozoologists, and contrarians of every stripe. Doug Skinner has contributed to “Fate,” “The Fortean Times,” and other relevant publications, and often spoken at fortean gatherings in the US and UK.
