Technicolor Skull
performs their first West Coast appearance at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles on November 19, 2011, as part of the opening reception for Kenneth Anger: ICONS. This exhibition will showcase the films, books, and artwork of one of the most original and enigmatic filmmakers of post-war American cinema. This coincides with the release of Technicolor Skull's self-titled recorded debut, a one-sided, bloodred 180 gram 12" vinyl LP limited to 666 copies.

Technicolor Skull LP cover
Technicolor Skull
is an experiment in light and sound, exploring the psychic impact of a magick ritual in the context of an improvised performance. With Brian Butler on guitar and electronic instruments, and Kenneth Anger on theremin, their collaboration is a performance contained inside a ritual of unknown origin, tapping into occult stories that extend musical language into initiation. Hidden messages escape through gesture and light, manifesting as a one-time-only event. 

The record will be available directly

to watch Kenneth Anger and Brian Butler's

Teresa Henriques - Problem

Teresa Henriques (born 1978, Portugal), has been living and working in New York since 2006 and is represented by Rooster Gallery. “Problem” will be comprised by her latest sculptures, as well as a project, which will develop throughout the duration of the show.
On the ground floor, Teresa Henriques will present 7 kinetic sculptures. The piece that lends this show its title – “Problem” – deals with the notion of one’s perception of what a problem might be and the different perspectives that arise while seeing it. The departing point was Bruno Munari’s “From things are born things,” a methodology book of problem solving. Despite their sculptural nature, the 6 remaining pieces on this floor are in fact three-dimensional interactive drawings, which are put into motion by the viewer with the use of a crank.
The work on view downstairs focuses on Fernando Pessoa’s “Ultimatum,” a text written and published in November 1917 on “Portugal Futurista nº1” magazine. The importance of this text lies, not only on the fact that it was the only text openly against the First World War while the war was still on course, but also due to its subversive and revolutionary tone. The poet’s daring request to “Open all the windows! Open more windows of all the windows in the world!” is Teresa Henriques’ starting point to a more complex and broader project. This project will take place in two separates moments of the duration of the exhibition.
“Problem” is an exhibition that deals with our own perceptions of the artistic object while raising pertinent questions on issues which are currently on debate, whether they are artistic or civilizational. Despite its poetic approach, “Problem” perspires a clear and yet almost inaudible subversive message. The viewer will therefore be a phisically active element of the show but more importantly he will provide his own insights by raising new questions or, if possible, providing solutions while following Ludwig Wittgenstein’s valuable advice: “Don't get involved in partial problems, but always take flight to where there is a free view over the whole single great problem, even if this view is still not a clear one.”
Teresa Henriques was born in Lisbon in 1978. She holds a MFA in Fine Arts by the School of Visual Arts of New York (2010). She did the Location One residency in New York (2006/07). She was awarded two times grants from Calouste Gulbenkian Fundation and Luso-American Foundation (2008-10) (2006-07).
Henriques last solo exhibits were “Use the Resources”, Pedro Oliveira Gallery, Porto (2010) and “Aleatograph” Sala do Veado, Museum of Natural History, Lisbon (2008).  She has shown at Perry Rubenstein Gallery (“Plus One,” curated by Dan Cameron), and SVA Gallery (“Thanks… but it`s actually on purpose,” curated by Augusto Arbizo) in New York, Modern Art Center of the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, Galeria Pedro Oliveira in Oporto and Galeria Sete (“13:7,” curated by Miguel Amado) in Coimbra.

98th Annual Art Show at NYC's National Arts Club


98th Annual Art Show at NYC's National Arts Club Features
Award-Winning Brooklyn Artist, NOV 4-20, 2011

NYC, NY; Nov 2011 -- The 98th Annual Show at the National Arts Club in NYC will feature the work of Brooklyn sculptor Robin Antar, an award-winning artist who will be among many local artists included in an exhibition at 15 Gramercy Park South, Manhattan, from November 4- 20. An award reception will be on Sunday, November 20th at 1 PM.
Ms. Antar, whose sculptures have graced the display windows of Paul Stuart's flagship NYC Madison Avenue store, will exhibit her hat carved out of limestone. Ms. Antar was chosen to exhibit as an award winning member of Allied Artists of America, Inc.
Antar is known for her realistic sculptures of American culture-such as Oreos, Diesel jeans, and Dr Martens. Her sculptures are a challenging trompe l'oeil for the viewer, often leaving them wondering: is it a sculpture or is it the real thing? In contrast to the order of her home and the gallery-like quality of her living room where she rotates her favorite pieces, her studio houses 7 tons of stone (which spills over into her garage), and the unusual tools of her trade (including heavy drills that seem far too bulky for the slight Antar to lift, much less sculpt with). Last year she transformed several hundred pounds of red travertine marble into a larger-than-life-sized bottle of Heinz® Ketchup.
Ms. Antar's works have appeared in exhibitions at museums, galleries, corporate offices and universities, ranging from the City Museum in St. Louis, to the Nabisco Corporation Gallery, to New York University. Her works were recently on view at the Blue Hill Cultural Center in Pearl River, NY as part of the "Made In America" exhibition. Antar was named in the Best of America Sculpture Artists, 2007 and 2010 editions, and has been featured on HGTV's 'That's Clever.'
The mission of the National Arts Club is to stimulate, foster and promote public interest in the arts and educate the American people in the fine arts. The Club's Membership has included three presidents, and some of the most important artists and arts patrons in America. Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Dwight D. Eisenhower were all Members of the National Arts Club. Among the distinguished painters who have been Members are Robert Henri, Frederic Remington, William Merritt Chase and Cecilia Beaux. Sculptors have included Saint-Gaudens, Daniel Chester French, Anna Hyatt Huntington and Paul Manship. Many renowned literary figures have also been members. The National Arts Club is proud of its early recognition of new media artforms, like photography, film and digital media, and counts Alfred Stieglitz as one of its early Members. Musicians Victor Herbert and Walter Damrosch were Members, as were architects Stanford White and George B. Post. The Dramatic Arts are currently represented by Members Martin Scorcese, Ethan Hawke, Dennis Hopper, Robert Redford and Uma Thurman.
Allied Artists of America, Inc. is a non-profit National Art Society composed of artists, sculptors, elected active members and sustaining associate members from the across the country. The offices and exhibition galleries are both located at the elegant historical landmark, The National Arts Club. An award reception will be held on Sunday, November 20th at 1 PM.
