Oded Hirsch’s Groundbreaking Work in Liverpool!

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

As a part of the London 2012 Festival, celebrating the UK’s biennial of international contemporary art, Oded Hirsch has been commissioned by Liverpool Biennial! For the Olympic year, Liverpool Biennial is asking artists and thinkers to bring forth new understandings of hospitality for our increasingly globalised and complex times.

Oded’s work will present a sculptural intervention in the heart of Liverpool’s shopping district, Liverpool ONE. Hinting at a mysterious subterranean world emerging abruptly through the city’s streets, this unexpected and unexplained sculptural presence disrupts the experience of shoppers and passersby alike. It will ask questions about how we negotiate concealed spaces.

The Bliumises Trade Art for Dinner

Friday, May 11th, 2012

NYC Cohort I Fellow Alina Bliumis, along with her husband Jeff, have embarked on “A Painting for a Family Dinner,” a new participatory project, in which the Bliumises offer an original work of art in exchange for a family dinner in the Bronx. They approach the dinner with no agenda, merely a desire to learn more about their neighbors to the north of their own Brooklyn home.

“We just would like to meet them, talk, spend some time, have a conversation and exchange art for food,” says Alina. They have broken bread with about a dozen families in the Bronx, and are seeking more interested parties. For more info, espcially interested parties living in the Bronx, should visit the Bliumis’s site, linked here, for more details!
