Curbing Spring Fever!

In Where art is never curbed... on April 8, 2011 at 6:06 am

By Guest Blogger Sara Saunders

We can’t curb the Spring and it is finally here. In March we had Art Week, the weather was iffy, but Aimee Margolis performed at Scope NY First View with the special VIP performance of her Edible Art Project. So Yoon Kim videoed the art piece with all the spectators gladly being part of the performance. The Edible Art Video will be in my next blog entry….

The Edible Art was created literally by the artist who baked and etched statements on sugar and ginger cookies with her own hands.  ( no out-sourcing here, Jeff Koons.) These 66 cookies were given out to curators, collectors, and dealers to nurture the art community and to poke them at the same time. With statements they literally ate were-  “Art You”,  “Money vs Talent”,  “Art Confusion”,  “Art Guru”, “Talent or Tawdry”, “Beauty over Death”, and “Confused by Truth”. The art community was ravenous and ate them up but, for the more serious collector they had the option to save the art work and put it on the wall. That was a dilemma for many, to eat or to save the art as the Art Giver, Aimee Margolis  walked slowly through the crowd choosing to give an edible art piece, or a full colored post-card of the work, or a colored slip of paper describing the performance. It was an amazing, original work that was well received from everyone including Florida collector Martin Z Margulies to Peter Surace of Rare Gallery and everyone in between.

 “There was plenty of great art to see at Art Week” Written by Aimée Margolis

Volta, with their beautiful location near the Empire State Building was very well organized with plenty of leaflets to take and remember ones favorite artists. Though a little too tight and structured, the creative spark it once had made it harder to find this year. Something that was cool, was an Israeli artist – Daniel Rozin, who had a great mix of high science and detritus with his Trash Mirror. This piece changed when you got near it with the trash elements moving with your movements making your body silhouetted upon the work. Another piece totally technological looking was a large monitor that repeated hundreds of black lines and every time you moved it would change and make an impression of you. The work made animpression on me and me on the work.

A Curb of Ideals – A New Year!

In Where art is never curbed... on January 2, 2011 at 9:05 am

Curbing with the Democrats and the Republicans in a new way!

Hello, back again for a new year and new ideas, – I hope you are all well!?  Never to curb our interests, we have an exhibit of Aimée Margolis (me) at the Da Gallery extended until the 27th of January in Chelsea, and also to discuss the closing of the Barnes & Noble Store – “Stand-Up & Shout” Demonstration and much more.

Chunghan Kim and "Girl with Bubbles" (alias Aimée Margolis) at Da Gallery.

The exhibit at the Da Gallery “Giggly, Bubbly Show” on 149 West 24th Street, 6th Floor is going to have a party on the the last day of the exhibit, January 27th at 6 PM. Please come to the exhibit. What makes this group show of interest is that I am identifying myself as a Korean male artist – (alias Chunghan Kim). For the past twenty years I have been doing a series of work called “A New Level of Awareness”, where I have been a Arab male artist, Lesbian, Male HIV artists and now Korean. Why? – By changing my gender, race and nationality, I am addressing the influence of perception of art.  Art – is it a pure form or are race and gender codification rampant in your perception of  the work? This is what I am addressing and redressing in this exhibition.

"Boycott Century 21"

Sunday, January 2, 2011 is the last day of the 66th street Barnes & Noble, an anchor in the community that will be missed. Being right across from Lincoln Center, it was a cultural magnet for the community. Giving voice to the community’s concerns, “Stand-up & Shout” was a rallying point I organized, to demonstrate how dismayed we all were at this lack of concern and the fat-pockets of Cushman & Wakefield, who could of done something $ , (with the help of the community) to save this much treasured oasis. Instead we are going to get an inappropriate  “Linty” Century 21 clothing store in its space, – like a Pottersville vs Baily mind-set (in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life”– “Boycott Century 21 !”is a rallying cry to kick Cushman & Wakefield in their fat pockets! Maybe C&W will consider the community next time….. Happy New Year!

Bye, Bye Barnes & Noble, we knew you well! - Eric is at the rally.


Blog is born and much more….

In Where art is never curbed... on July 26, 2010 at 2:00 am

Today was a tornado day in Manhattan, gusty winds and rain, with “no curbing” the bewildered today with   CURB   DOG – on the side of the pavement. I have received requests from several people who are interested in being part of the Curb/Dog Project on the streets of NYC. All I say is, if you have a natural love of life and want to make a difference, give us a line.

It would be cool if we had grass root art activists all over the city and all over the country trying to cure of ACC (Attention Curb Confusion) especially with dog owners, making our streets fresh to walk down again. (You also need to have a great sense of humor, ACC is spoofing. As well as ACHC, Attention Curb Homie Confusion, – which was spoken about in our first Blog entry.) So see you all soon where art can hopefully make a difference!
