María Vidal como Antígona

En el Teatro IATI tenemos una adaptación de una de las más famosas obras del clacisismo griego escrita por Sófocles. "El corazón de Antígona" escenificada por el Teatro Abrego de España, se ha presentado con notable éxito en los 25 países que ya ha visitado y ha obtenido numerosos reconocimientos entre los que cabe destacar el Premio al Mejor Autor dramático en el festival Iberoamericano de Mar del Plata, Argentina 2006 o la Medalla de oro de la ciudad de Viseu, Portugal entre otros. Una tragedia griega escrita 400 años antes de Cristo sigue no solo a permanecido intacta hasta nuestros días, si no que resulta de una evidente actualidad. Pocos pensadores han dejado de reflexionar sobre esta tragedia, una de las siete que se conservan completas de las más de cien que salieron del genio de Sófocles. El escritor y crítico George Steiner dijo: "Creo que sólo a un texto literario le ha sido dado expresar todas las constantes principales de conflicto propias de la condición de hombre. Ese texto es "Antígona". El dramaturgo Bertolt Brecht, que hizo su propia versión de esta tragedia, afirmó: "Antígona es la historia de una revolucionaria feminista ante un tirano". El filósofo Hegel también estudió la obra de Sófocles y generó una de las interpretaciones más conocidas entre sus lectores: "Antígona y Creonte –el otro protagonista– tienen ambos razón y culpa". Kierkegaard, Hegel, Hörderlin y hasta Lacan ofrecieron sus opiniones sobre Antígona. El psicoanalista francés centró muchas de sus teorías en esta tragedia, que veía como la síntesis del "deseo femenino".

Claudia Bueno, Ciudad 1, 2007, Interactive light collage, led, acrylic, glass, 13.5 x 27 x 9

Latin Collector has an exhibit titled The Object is Illuminated, a group exhibition featuring the work of contemporary artists: Tony Bechara (Puerto Rico), Claudia Bueno (Venezuela), Luis Cantillo (Colombia), Angela Freiberger (Brasil), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (Mexico), Sebastián Patané Masuelli (Argentina), Tatiana Parcero (Mexico), Adriana Varella (Brasil), and Alex Villar (Brasil). Engaging the hybridization of subjective mythology and the strong Latin feeling for austere hard-edge abstraction, these artists are among the most compelling producers of works to emerge from the South America continent. Their production methodologies incorporate technology into the psyche, or uncover its existence there, however the case may be.

SOLAR ART will be part this Saturday 7, of the Art Salon Party and Silent Auction to benefit We The World in their global water sustainability campaign. Salon will feature photographs from the Fluvial series by Venezuelan artist Lucia Pizzani (b. Caracas, Venezuela, 1975). A main subject in her work has been a human vision of nature: pure and urbanized, in an aesthetic framework that amplifies the beauty of its colors, textures and patterns. She has captured leaves, shells, and fungus concentrating on a macro vision that brings out the micro world there; or she has focused on city streets looking for that encounter between human footprints and natural elements such as snow, ice and flowers.

Museum of the City of New York bring us: Paris/New York: Design Fashion Culture 1925-1940 This exhibit explores the cross-cultural exchanges in architecture, cuisine, film, design, fashion, and the performing arts between Paris, regarded as the capital of 19th century refinement, and New York, a city experimenting with new ideas that reshaped it as a global cultural center in the years between the world wars. Styles from Art Deco to neo-romanticism will be examined along with the work of such legendary figures as Helena Rubinstein, Coco Chanel, Salvador Dali­­, and Josephine Baker, and lesser-known figures such as costume and set designer Pavel Tchelitchew. This Sunday • February 8 • 12:00 PM the curator Donald Albrecht will lead a tour of the exhibition, before it closes on feb.22. Also on display: Eudora Welty in New York: Photographs of the Early 1930s through Feb 16. This exhibit features 50 black-and-white photographs from her home state of Mississippi that constitute a near complete re-creation of her first solo exhibition held in 1936 at the Photographic Galleries of Lugene Opticians in New York City. The recreation is supplemented with eleven of Welty’s photographs taken in New York City. Together these photographs capture America in the depths of the Great Depression revealing a compassion and sensitivity towards her subject that also became a hallmark of her writing.

At MOMA is the last chance to see Artist's Choice: Vik Muniz, Rebus (closes on February 23) Vik Muniz (Brazilian, b. 1961) is the ninth artist to participate in Artist's Choice, a series of exhibitions in which an artist serves as curator, selecting works from MoMA’s vast collection to create an exhibition and will feature approximately 80 works of sculpture, photography, painting, prints, drawings, video, and design objects selected and installed by the artist in a narrative sequence to create surprising juxtapositions and new meanings.


SOB's welcomes on Friday, Ernesto "Chico" Alvarez Peraza, the Cuban-American artist specializing in Latin American music. Chico has been performing as a singer throughout the New York City tri-state area for the last four decades. He currently performs with the Afro-Cuban dance band Mafímba and can be heard hosting New World Gallery, a weekly music show which airs on Sunday afternoons at WBAI Pacifica Radio (99.5 FM). A renaissance man, Chico continues to leave his mark on a variety of areas within the the Latin music genre but he is in his element when he hits the stage. His unique background has helped Chico create a sound that mixes his homeland of Cuba (where he grew up) with his birthplace of New York. The resultant brand of salsa is sure to keep the dancers moving. On Saturday, it will host Alo Brasil, by far the best Brazilian band based outside the birthplace of Samba. The band is high energy and the the crowd is never disappointed when they hit the stage. Accompanied by stunningly costumed dancers, the band draws audiences into an irresistible, full body & soul experience. The band’s music is rooted in African influenced rhythms (samba batucada, samba reggae, pagode, maracatú, ijexá), and others, from many different regions of Brazil.
