Morocco Unfolding Day 2

This article was posted by Mare 139 1 Year, 5 months, 4 weeks, 2 hours, 34 minutes ago.

So far Marrakech has been a complete cultural immersion for all of my senses. My host David Bloch and Alexandra have shown me Medina in ways many have never seen, its the inside scoop. Its a beautiful country as you can see from the images.

Ive been deep in the hood, in the gut of a Tannery where goats were skinned to coolin out drinking at Churchills Bar at the most luxurious hotel Ive ever seen-  La Mamounia http://www.mamounia.com/uk/index.php

The food, people and vibe is good, the streets can be 5x more chaotic than NYC but it flows in ways NY doesn’t.

Agents Of Change- Unfolding

This article was posted by Mare 139 1 Year, 6 months, 3 weeks, 4 hours, 21 minutes ago.

AOC_unfolding

The David Bloch Gallery is proud to present Unfolding, a group show by six members of the international art collective Agents of Change, renowned for creating environmental work on a monumental scale. As well as collaborating as a collective, each artist has pursued art careers in their own right, showing to audiences throughout the world.

Each of the participating artists share a common language that originated from the graffiti art explosion in the late 70’s and early 80’s. In the following decades their work has progressed and diversified to create its own distinct and refined voice. A deep-rooted understanding of form, material and space has allowed the artist’s work to unfold, expanding outwards toward new contexts.

Unfolding showcases artists whose work incorporates a strong leaning toward plasticity – using a wide variety of media to produce work ranging from painting through to sculpture and installation. Through experimentation with new materials Unfolding will bring about an examination of new journeys and the opportunity to exploit future dialogues within a well established aesthetic.

About Agents of Change http://www.agents-of-change.co.uk

Agents of Change are a collective of 12 artists who attack space. Formed in 2009, the international collective create work that responds on a site specific basis, integrating both the aesthetic and historical resonance of the environment they’re working in. Each project brings greater potential for innovation, both on a practical level in technique and on a more emotive basis in dealing with ever larger historical and political ideas.

Participating Artists

Carlos Mare aka Mare 139 (USA)   http://www.carlosmare.com
Mare is a NYC based sculptor/ painter/ scholar/ US Cultural Ambassador who in 1985 pioneered a novel version of urban graffiti as modern sculpture. Throughout his career as a sculptor, Mare has consistently brought innovation to the genre’s aesthetic and vocabulary. His metal sculptures are inspired by his interests of form, light, space in an architectural environment. His admiration of early avant-garde art and sculpture inspired the merging of aesthetics between ‘graffiti’ styles and the modernists of the early 20th century.

Derm (UK) http://www.dermographix.com
Derm’s work is based on a combination of abstracted typographical forms, architectural influences, and graphic and geometric shape. Taking inspiration from the colours and textures of the natural, urban and industrial environments in Scotland, he makes work in found spaces that responds to and comments on the aesthetics of its environment.

Jaybo Monk (France/Germany)   http://www.jayboisms.squarespace.com
Jaybo (1968) is a runaway, setting out and wandering along in a physical as well as in a creative sense – urban subculture is the driving force behind his artistic activities. This is especially true of his paintings, which are erratic and chaotic as they directly quote various fragments of what surround him – often plumbing great psychological depths, thematically speaking, with lightness meeting existentialistic melancholy, aggressiveness meeting passion and a seemingly standard romantic streak and visionary dimension.

LX One (France)   http://www.lxone.eu
LX explores the pixel, the smallest unit, as a means to research the base of form, and the skeleton of colours. He works to the beat of geometry, the noise of shapes and a system of tensions in free space that response to architecture, urbanism and design. Inspired by Piet Mondrian and Vasarelly, LX One portrays the absolutes in life: Vertical and horizontal lines.

Remi Rough (UK)   http://www.remirough.com/blog
There are few artists whose recent works could be described as “painting visual haikus” without the reader needing to roll their eyes, but Remi Rough is one of them. South London born and bred, Remi has been breaking boundaries with the aid of a spray can and a paintbrush for over 27 years. Transcending the traditional and somewhat idealised vision of a graffiti writer, he is passionate and unforgiving in his creative progression.

Steve More (UK)   http://www.stevemore.net
Steve More uses materials from his surrounding environment to create abstract works concerned with the passing of time, decay and regeneration. In 2005, following 20 years as a graffiti artist, More switched from painting on the city surfaces to focusing on the inherent qualities of the materials that lay beneath. He works with materials such as concrete, bill posters and found objects to explore wider concepts of urban life. His work is often highly textural occupying a space between painting and sculpture.

David Bloch Gallery is located at 8 bis rue des Vieux Marrakchis, 40000 Marrakech, Morocco, and Unfolding will run from May 10 to June 8, 2013.

Wednesday, March 20 @ 6pm
A 30th Anniversary celebration of Style Wars
With Henry Chalfant, Carlos “Mare139” Rodriguez, and iona rozeal brown
http://on.nypl.org/Y61Z1N

This spring, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts presents Rhapsodic City: Music of New York, a new six-week long interdisciplinary series exploring the city’s distinct role in the formulation, emergence, and legacy of some of the most exciting music movements in the 20th century.


Tackling a different music style or subject each week—hip-hop, punk, the folk music revival, Prohibition-era jazz, Mambo and Salsa, and the Brill Building’s heyday—Rhapsodic City: Music of New York features panel discussions with icons and experts, performances by leading artists, special film screenings and presentations of the Performing Arts Library’s remarkable collections.

Highlights from the series include a discussion of punk style and sound with Blondie’s Debbie Harry and Chris Stein; performances by Jazz Age Lawn Party founder Michael Arenella, Grammy-nominated bandleader Bobby Sanabria, and Joe McGinty from the Losers Lounge Band; a celebration of women in hip-hop; and an exploration of Greenwich Village in the ‘50s and ‘60s led by Elijah Wald, author of the book that served as source material for the Coen Brothers’ latest film.

“At The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, we are deeply aware of how vital music is to this city’s cultural fabric,” said Jacqueline Z. Davis,  Barbara G. and Lawrence A. Fleishman Executive Director of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. “Using our vast archival materials—including sheet music, films, recordings and more—Rhapsodic City: Music of New York provides an opportunity for us to illustrate some of the most compelling examples of how New York inspires new genres of music, and how musical styles from around the world have become part of the city’s own cultural narrative, creating a distinctly New York story.”

All events included in the Rhapsodic City: Music of New York series take place at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts (40 Lincoln Center Plaza) unless otherwise noted below, and are free and open to the public.

Hip-Hop
Nearly 40 years ago, hip-hop started in the Bronx during one of the lowest points of the borough’s history. Counteracting the urban decay, violence, and corruption, hip-hop culture emerged as a musical nexus, emanating creativity and liberating struggle. Today, the now global movement transcends race, gender, and socioeconomic status.
