Openings & Parties: Todd James + Alexis Ross – Beyond Elegance

Last night saw the opening of Todd James and Alexis Ross’ new show Beyond Elegance. Christos Katsiaouni was on hand to photograph the casual mix of rad people from the art, graffiti, music, and fashion worlds. Presented by PM Tenore and Andy Valmorbida, the exhibition is on view at 560 Washington Street, New York City and until November 30th.

Openings & Parties: Deep Space

This past Saturday night, a large survey of work by Matta, Rammellzee, Futura, and Phase 2 opened in the Meatpacking District. Curated by Nemo Librizzi and Joseph Nahmad, the dramatically lit Deep Space presented massive canvases connecting the 1970s work of Chilean artist Matta with that of the art created by New York City subway writers in the 1980s. A lively crowd filled the open space, accompanied by the cool jazzy tunes that acted as the center of energy for the show.

Openings & Parties: Hearsay at Half Gallery

From the street to the sidewalk to the storefront, a corner of the Lower East Side was mobbed last night for the opening of Jay Miriam, Jeanette Hayes, and Jemima Kirke’s group show “Hearsay” at Half Gallery. Inside the gallery, the ladies presented new paintings that were strong enough to balance the beauty that surrounded them.
