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.
