Anderson Contemporary & The Villa America Fine Art – present Anthony Haden-Guest – The Further Chronicles of the Now

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Anderson Contemporary and The Villa America Fine Art are thrilled to share The Further Chronicles of Now, a show of the ground-breaking cartoon work that Anthony Haden-Guest has been making over the last several years.  His targets are as various as the art world, our social disorders  (new & old) and the state/fate of the planet, so the work is content-driven but such formal elements as color and design are very much part of that content.

 Haden-Guest mostly works in pen and ink on paper, but he likes to extend the possibilities of cartoon language through works in neon, collaborating with animators and with other media.

The exhibit runs from May 10th – June 10th.

Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month.” 

 

Bridging the Divide: AWAD collaborates with Pen + Brush during Armory Week 2017

Monday, February 27th, 2017

As we all grapple with how to face a world that looks, feels and almost is completely upside down, the role of art is more critical than ever.

Art has the capacity to freely reflect dissent, provoke empathy, and understanding, and offer solace through expressions of sheer humanity, beauty, and love.

This collaborative panel discussion on Thursday, March 2nd, in New York City, is set to prompt a productive dialog between artists and the arts professionals who work to support their voices. The event hashtag #ArtWomenUnite echoes our embrace of ALL women, working together in unity during changing times.  (more…)
