    Hans Silvester's "Natural Fashion" Series Featured as Cover Story of Departures magazine's May/June 2010 Issue 

    The May/June 2010 issue of Departures magazine features a glowing cover story on Hans Silvester's Natural Fashion series of photographs.  The issue includes a number of powerful images from the series, both inside and on the cover, as well as a fascinating discussion with famed New York fashion critic Candy Pratts Price regarding Silvester's spell-binding color portraits of East African's Omo Valley people and their artistic traditions.  The Surma and Mursi tribes of  Ethiopia's Omo Valley  use bright mineral pigment to adorn the skin and use various flora to fashion colorful headpieces and other body accessories.  The striking forms of the ancient tribal aesthetic, manifested through the inspired use of our shared world, speaks of the universal need for cultural (and aesthetic) expression and, as Price notes, "to create beauty all the time."

    The series is also illustrated in the book Natural Fashion: The Tribal Decoration from Africa (New York: Thames & Hudson, 2008).

    Sculptures by Ryman and Snelson in 7 World Trade Center Lobby 

    Born in 1969, Will Ryman lives and works in New York City. He is widely recognized for his unique sculpture installations that distill human experience and emotion, capturing moments of surprise and exploring the quotidian in city life.
    These three sculptures are from a series of over thirty mixed media works that depict large roses in shades of pink and red with garden detritus such as bottle caps, crushed cans and bubblegum wrappers, with a distortion of scale that, according to the artist, reflects a rodent’s view of a New York City rose garden.
    The works on display include: Untitled (Rose 15), Untitled (Rose 24), Untitled (Rose 34)

    KENNETH SNELSON
    Kenneth Snelson’s sculptural explorations with tensegrity structures, a word created by the philosopher Buckminster Fuller to describe Snelson’s structural innovation by combining the words tension and integrity, manifests itself in webs of aluminum tubes and stainless steel cables that are held in highly stressed, configured structural arrangements through the push-pull balance of compressive forces in the tubes and tension forces in the cables. Snelson was born in Oregon in 1927 and lives and works in Manhattan.
    This work, Equilateral Quivering Tower, was conceived in 1973 and fabricated in 1992. This is the sister sculpture to a monumental outdoor work permanently installed at the Osaka Prefecture University, Osaka, Japan.

    Roberta Smith Reviews Picasso Exhibition in The New York Times 

    “Celebrating the Muse: Women in Picasso’s Prints From 1905-1968,” at Marlborough, running through May 1, is reviewed by Roberta Smith of the New York Times. She extolled the extensive curatorial efforts of Vice President Tara K. Reddi, and remarked on the complementary conversation between this show and the concurrent prints exhibition, “Picasso: Themes and Variations,” at the Museum of Modern Art.

    "...“Celebrating the Muse: Women in Picasso’s Prints From 1905-1968,” at the Marlborough Gallery on West 57th Street, is considerably larger [than MoMA's] in size with 204 works but far narrower in focus. As its title implies, this venture is pretty much girls, girls, girls. Here we have more of the aforementioned wives and mistresses, along with mythological figures, unnamed models and their more sexualized counterparts: mantilla-topped majas in assorted degrees of undress. This project was organized over two years by Tara K. Reddi, the vice president at Marlborough...and Marilyn McCully, chief collaborator on John Richardson’s monumental Picasso biography. You could say that the Marlborough show fitfully fills out the spare yet relatively complete armature of the Modern’s show, while offering rarities of its own."
