TARQ and The Poetry Club are delighted to announce a poetry writing workshop that ties with the gallery's ongoing exhibition ‘Osmosis’.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Name: Found Poetry: Reclaiming Language and Redefining Material Date: Saturday, 20th July, 2019 Time: 11:00 am – 2:00 pm Age group: Open to All Registration fee: Rs 750 (All Inclusive)
Capacity: 20 Participants
In this workshop, participants will explore the works in the gallery through a guided tour and reflect on the idea of Osmosis and its interconnections with poetry practice.
With new poems and old, alongside the exhibit, participants will navigate the ideas of movement and migration, life and death, belonging and unbelonging, and the way these constantly shape our multi-faceted identities and cultures. While exploring these themes, participants will learn the important elements that make a good poem and be guided to attempt their own.
Participants will also learn about redefining materials and re-purposing found objects by working to create “found” poems.
Founded in 2013 by Katie Michel, Planthouse Gallery is a project space located on 28th street in New York City. Planthouse took its namesake from its original home located on the storied block between Sixth and Seventh Avenues that represents the vibrant center of city’s flower district. In 2015, the gallery relocated nearby, to 55 West 28th Street, trading in tulips and trees for the wholesale shops that now populate Tin Pan Alley, the strip between Fifth and Sixth Avenues which historically housed the city’s musicians, shops, and musical publishers in the early twentieth century. Planthouse is located on the parlor floor of a brownstone dating back to this period, and we hope the (colorful) ghosts of the past will continue to inspire our future and our commitment to exhibiting and publishing the contemporary work of emerging and established artists.

Admission is free for these programs unless otherwise noted.
This summer, The Shed is presenting three distinct yet interrelated new commissions in an exhibition that explores social and cultural confrontations and alliances. From July 31 through August 25,Beatriz Gonzálesjoins artistsTony CokesandOscar Murilloas the third commission in the exhibitionas the subject of a new 20-minute documentary film, Cinta Amarilla, directed byYanina ValdiviesoandVanessa Bergonzoli.
Gonzalez’s monumental public workAuras Anonimas(2009), an installation of 8,957 tombstones in Bogotá’s Central Cemetery in tribute to those that died due to armed conflict in Colombia’s civil war, is the central focus of the film. Sourcing imagery from newspapers and other media, González created silhouettes of soldiers carrying bodies in sheets and makeshift hammocks, which were then painted on mausoleums. This important memorial to the victims of violence is under threat of being demolished by Bogotá’s city administration. Creating a “counter-monument” through public art, González explores the meaning of memory, memorials, and mourning.Cinta Amarilla, produced by Display None and co-produced by Catalina Casas, will screen daily (except Mondays) through August 25.
Tony Cokes’s two new, immersive works form a diptych titledBefore and After the Studio (2019). These videos, projected onto large LED screens, investigate the historic and contemporary role artists' studios play in shaping artworks and creating communities, with a focus on the architecture of the studio and its social role, as well as wider themes of urban development in New York City.
Two new series of large-scale abstract paintings byOscar Murrilloanddrawings the artist creates while traveling are also featured inCollision/Coalition. Matte black canvases, soaked in black paint and burned with an iron, hang from the gallery ceiling on hooks like draped flags, dividing the gallery space between Murillo and Cokes’s works.
Admission toCollision/Coalitionis free. Tickets are available attheshed.org.

Since 1998 he has been releasing records under a number of pseudonyms, including Gramm (pulsating minimal electronica) and Farben (soul records rearranged in subtle variations).
Tickets are $10 for this performance and will be available attheshed.orgbeginning July 25.
