Now the top-selling female artist in the world, Yayoi Kusama overcame impossible odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. For decades, her work pushed boundaries that often alienated her from both her peers and those in power in the art world. Kusama was an underdog with everything stacked against her: the trauma of growing up in Japan during World War II, life in a dysfunctional family that discouraged her creative ambitions, sexism and racism in the art establishment, mental illness in a culture where that was particularly shameful and even continuing to pursue and be devoted to her art full time on the cusp of her 90s. In spite of it all, Kusama has endured and has created a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry and literary fiction. After working as an artist for over six decades, people around the globe are experiencing her installation Infinity Mirrored Rooms in record numbers, as Kusama continues to create new work every day.

A screening of the film will be follow by a Q&A with the filmmaker Heather Lenz.

The Virtual Asian American Art Museum (VAAAM) is a multi-year, inter-institutional digital humanities project initiated and led by the following major partners: the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU, NYU Libraries, Getty Research Institute, Smithsonian Institution, DePaul University, Japanese American Service Committee, and TOME.

VAAAM also worked in collaboration with the Art Institute of Chicago for the museum’s inaugural regional module “Chicago-Midwest.” The scholarly content for the inaugural module was generously supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art and through its initiative Art Design Chicago, an exploration of Chicago’s art and design history and legacy.

Rather than a “bricks and mortar” museum, VAAAM presents curated materials from US and international repositories to visualize, analyze, and contextualize Asian American art history. VAAAM facilitates the discussion of key topics emerging from the developing discourse of digital art history, American art, national and international standards for museum and institutional collection sharing, and digital access while fostering the transnational narrative of Asian American art. Learn more about the Virtual Asian American Art Museum and join us to celebrate its launch at College Art Association in New York.

About the exhibition and artist:
After Midnight
a solo exhibition of paintings by artist Oscar Oiwa

Location: Mizuma Kips & Wada Art, 324 Grand Street, NYC

Sao Paulo-born Oiwa, primarily known for his galactic ink murals, is debuting a new collection of landscape paintings here at Mizuma Kips & Wada Art this February. Brimming with texture, color, and kaleidoscopic patterns, Oiwa’s pieces transport the viewer to an electric wonderland of improbable pictorial space, subverting long-entrenched expectations of surface and surreality in the process. Whether articulating how light bathes a forest floor or inviting us to consider the formal fluidity of the cosmos, Oiwa’s practice draws on far-ranging references like Pointillism and graphic design to create a new painterly lexis, a bold, fresh language for worlds at once familiar and bizarre. The larger works seem edgeless in their generosity, ensconcing the viewer in operatic gradients of color. Oiwa’s inspirations feel instinctively Modernist; his ability to harness emotional resonance through expertly deployed, immediate brushwork lends the paintings a mystical quality, further problematizing their positions as objects in the white cube. After Midnight offers a metaphysics of paint, a portal through which we can re-imagine the mundane as utterly miraculous.

Oscar Oiwa was born in Sao Paulo in 1965 to Japanese immigrants. He received his BFA from the School of Architecture and Urbanism in Sao Paolo in 1989 and has since had over 60 solo exhibitions at venues like the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, the Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art, the Takamatsu City Museum, and Museu Nacional de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro. His work is also featured in a number of international public collections, including the Utsunomiya Museum of Art, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, and the University of Sao Paulo Museum of Contemporary Art. He has received several awards, including Pollock-Krasner Foundation grants, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, and the Asian Cultural Council Grant. Oiwa is currently based in New York City.

Brother Lovers

BROTHER LOVERS

 

A fateful glance between two ancient warriors in a modern-day disco club resurrects a 5,000-year-old family tragedy and sparks a tense romance.

BROTHER LOVERS is an experimental play written and directed by Brooklyn-based performance and video artist Zavé Martohardjono. The play reinterprets the Mahabharata to reimagine two mythic heroes in a timeless queer tale of love, exile, and disco.

BROTHER LOVERS will première on Friday July 18 at 9pm and Sunday July 20 at 12pm at the Wild Project at 195 East 3rd Street in the Lower East Side as part of the 2014 Fresh Fruit Festival’s program “All Out Shorts III: Legends Through a Glass Queerly.” The play features a diverse cast of queer dancers and theater artists. Interested in crafting a universal narrative about belonging, displacement, and desire, Martohardjono directs and casts BROTHERS LOVERS with performers interchangeably playing its two main characters. Martohardjono weaves in autobiography and poetic personal reflections on identity as a mixed-race Indonesian-American far from “home” and considers Arjuna and Karna’s parable through a genderqueer and transgender lens.

For tickets, please visit: http://www.freshfruitfestival.com/2014-fresh-fruit-schedule/

Crossing the Hyphen: Recent Works of Pallavi Sharma

May 31- July 9, 2014
Addison Street Windows Gallery
2018 Addison Street
Berkeley, CA
Opening Reception: June 7th – 1pm – 3pm

The Addison Street Windows Gallery proudly presents Crossing the Hyphen: Art by Pallavi Sharma, an exhibition organized by curator, Demetri Broxton. Crossing the Hyphen reinvents recent installations and video art created by Pallavi Sharma. Sharma’s work is a subtle conversation in identity politics in America. Herself an Indian-American, Sharma explores how the hyphen serves a dual role: allowing the new immigrant to acknowledge their national origins while also allowing for a reinvented identity within a new country. Her work explores the blurring of national identities which occurs through the process of naturalization and movement. In her piece Carry-On, a suitcase lies open filled with grass and grass seeds. The work represents both the immigrant and the cultural heritage an immigrant brings with them—seeds to be planted in a new land. The piece poses the question of whether these seeds will always be exotic and separate, or over time will they become integrated into the larger cultural landscape?

Pallavi Sharma was born and raised in India and immigrated to United States in 1997. She received her BFA and MFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts Baroda, India and received her Ph.D. in Art History from India’s National Museum Institute of History of Art and Conservation, New Delhi, India. Pallavi’s work has been exhibited widely at venues including the Queens Museum of Art, Exit Art, Art Asia Pacific, and Bishop Museum. At present, she is a board member ofAsian American Women Artist Association (AAWAA) and Director of ‘Inner Eye Art’ an ArtConsulting Firm specializing in South Asian Art.

Demetrie Broxton is an independent curator. He was born in Oakland, CA and holds an M.A. in Museum Studies from San Francisco State University. Broxton has been curator with the City of Berkeley since February 2014. His past curatorial projects include Past Forward at the Sargent Johnson Gallery and Decoding Identity at Museum of the African Diaspora.
