Old World Voices in Festival of New City
Yuliya Lanina: Birds and Bees at New York Studio Gallery
April 7 to May 7, 2011. The closing event for this exhibition, coinciding with the 154 Stanton Street, at Suffolk Street
New York City, (212) 627-3276
Russian-born Yuliya Lanina has been an artist-in-residence at the NY Studio Gallery since the beginning of this year. The closing event of her solo exhibition of animations and their supporting sculptures and drawings, coincides with the Festival of the New City and features a performance of “Gentleman from Cracow,” a collaboration with husband-composer Yevgeniy Sharlat. The piece takes its cue from a short story of the same title by Isaac Bashevis Singer, and adds a distinctly old-world note to the utopian new world optimism of the festival. On the other hand, Singer worked at the Daily Forward, whose offices are in the ‘hood.
