Remain in Light
 Rose Eken
 
The Hole, 312 Bowery, NYC

“For the exhibition Eken will exhibit a forensic assortment of hand-painted ceramics arranged by size on the floor and three large tapestries on the walls. The sculptures will include all the objects one might find in a punk venue, perhaps even our former across-the-street neighbor here on the Bowery, CBGBs. From microphone stands all the way down to tiny bottle caps and guitar pics, these handmade and hand-painted objects will create a personalized memorial to NYC’s dwindling lawless zones and the mayhem they contained. Their anthropological arrangement on the floor suggests a methodical and scientific approach to categorizing and analyzing a lost culture, as though a forensic dig of the venue unearthed these strange relics.”

——

Next-Gen New York

The MoMA Teens Guide to What’s Happening Now

Created by a group of MoMA Teens alumni, this four-week online art course takes participants on a journey to explore what’s happening NOW in New York City’s art scene. Take the subway with us to Brooklyn to see different artists’ studios. Discover new and non-traditional art-making techniques, and make your own artwork in response. Learn about the Museum’s collection and investigate the ways in which gender and sexuality are being upended by creative counterculturalists just like you. Gain VIP access to content that is only available to members of the course, and meet other creative young artists from around the world. This is a class on YOUR terms, made for you by a community of your peers. And you can take part in it anytime you want, day or night—It’s like having 24-hour access to The Museum of Modern Art!

Please note: The course is completely free of charge! All applicants must be 13-17 years old. No prior arts experience necessary. Course begins Saturday, November 1, 2014. Applications are due by Wednesday, October 29.
