Tears for Art in Chelsea

Still two weeks after Hurricane Sandy people in hard-hit areas are struggling to recover their homes in many places in New Jersey, Long Island and in neighborhoods like Greenpoint, Redhook, and Staten Island. Our hearts are broken for the losses of so many suffered so widely. Thousands are still without power. Thankfully it is starting to warm up after the snowstorm in NE. Please try to help with the clean-up efforts.

The storm surge hit the Chelsea art galleries. The work of many artists and art dealers were destroyed. Many are working to reopen.

The only thing I wish this month was that there were a few less group shows. Now that 2012 is rolling, I expect that will change soon.

Fuerza Bruta is like the best rave hosted by your millionaire friend of a friend you wish you had. You want to be part of this celebration.

Everyman running at Fuerza Bruta

Everyman running Fuerza Bruta

What is it exactly, well… you’re inside of a wordless show filled with the dance sounds of a club, performances and visual feats happen all around, and you want to move and groove. You should see this show.

Suspended pool dance Fuerza Bruta

Suspended pool dance Fuerza Bruta

Fuerza Bruta is an extravaganza with many interesting moving pieces. Be prepared to move around around this standing-room only presentation thumping with a techno beat — it has a suspended pool hovers inches above the crowed, a moving 6-foot-high treadmill and a 20-foot curtain that brushes your fingertips.

Pool party comes to you at Fuerza Bruta

Pool party comes to you at Fuerza Bruta

Fuerza Bruta means “brute force” and the show originated in Argentina. Dress casual and check your bags, You might get misted, and confetti’ed but this is all to help you get involved. Dance admit, it’s all in good fun. Works for those in wheelchairs by the way.

The Daryl Roth Theatre is a 19th-century former bank on Union Square East (101 East 15 Street Union Square). The show runs Wed-Sun with two shows on Saturday. It is about a 1 hour show. Insiders tip: 2 hours before the showtime there are a limited number of $25 tickets sold at the box office.

Tuesday night Battles took over Webster Hall and sonically ran our brains all over the place. To get things going they put that task on Nisennenmondai

My impression of Nisennenmondai burning brightly

Nisennenmondai is Tokyo-based Japanese noise-pop that really hit stride in their set on the third song. Sayaka Himeno (drums), Yuri Zaikawa (bass) and Masako Takada (guitar) really created an interesting and complex fare. This trio tossed around this large crow. I got a kick out of how they politely and diminutively they thanked us — very nice girls. I look forward to them next time starting with the third song and then taking it further to kick my butt again.

I’ve been a fan of Battles for a while. Honestly I didn’t know how it would all change with the departure of Tyondai Braxton, but Dave Konopka, Ian Williams, and drummer John Stanierthis is a Battles to keep.

Dense interesting energy is what they deliver. Battles is now an instrumental trio with guest vocalists. So joining them (in a pixelated fashion) on stage was Gary Numan, Kazu Makino (of Blonde Redhead) and Matais Aguayo.

I’m really enjoying Battles Gloss Drop (Warp) this past month. It took me a while to pick up the CD (I’m too old school in these regards).

My wife and I went to hear Bill Hunt this past Friday at Aperture Gallery (547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor New York) We’ve gotten to know him a bit over the years at Photolucida (Portland) and FotoFest (Houston) portfolio reviews.

The talk at Aperture coincided with his new book, “The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious”(Aperture).  The nearly 400 images are in his private collection and contained masterworks by the well-known as well as images he collects from flea markets.  The one thing that ties them all together is that they all capture heart and stop his feet — they have impact on him personally.

This was special performance piece for Bill which had projections and video which covered his many years of collecting photography — his life in photography. “This is a photography of me,” he joked during many of the portraits in his collection.  The connections to his images are deep and what he collects is a way of exploring his different sides.

For more insights, buy the book, then read this great interview of Bill Hunt on At Length Magazine by Darren Ching and Debra Klomp Ching of the Klomp Ching Gallery.

Show:
“The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the W.M. Hunt Collection,” is being shown at the George Eastman House International Museum (Rochester, New York) through Feb 19. His book can be found in bookstores worldwide.
