Tao te Ching, Lao Tzu, One Little Angel

Being and non-being produce each other; Difficult and easy complete each other;

Long and short contrast (1) each other; High and low distinguish each other; Sound and voice harmonize with each other; Front and back follow each other. Therefore the sage manages affairs without action (wu-wei) And spreads doctrines without words. All things arise, and he does not turn away from them. He produces them, but does not take possession of them. He acts, but does not rely on his own ability. He accomplishes his task, but does not claim credit for it. It is precisely because he does not claim credit that his accomplishment remains with him.

Lao Tzu, fondateur présumé du Taoïsme

Laozi 2, in Wing-Tsit Chan, Chinese Philosophy, Chapter 7.

Fridge Art Fair Returns to Little Havana for Art Basel Miami Week

Press and VIP Preview December 4, 2-10 pm.
Fridge Art Fair Returns to Little Havana for Art Basel Miami Week 
Fridge Art Fair is pleased to announce that its second Miami edition will take place at the 3rd Street Garage Artspace, 300 SW 12th Avenue, Miami with additional presentations at a legendary Little Havana location, Ball & Chain ( December 4 – 9, 2014, thanks to major sponsorship by the Barlington Group and returning media sponsor Arte Fuse. Once again, Founding Director Eric Ginsburg, a noted painter in his own right (mainly for his soulful portraits of dogs), will lead the Fridge team. 
“People should not be afraid to go and see art, and it should not cost a fortune,’ said Ginsburg. “I want people to be happy, we want everyone from all walks of life to come to this fair and say, ‘that was really cool!’” In that spirit he has subtitled this edition “De Staatliches Bauhaus Rijpe Mango Editie,” explaining:
“In Hinduism, Lord Ganesha holds a perfectly ripe mango as a symbol of the potential for perfection. The mango is a tropical icon, a fruit of love. Pure, but sexy…like Miami!”
Cara Hunter Viera of Fridge will produce the Fair and NYC based curator, writer and dealer Linda DiGusta, co-director of Fridge 2014 in New York, stays on the team as curatorial consultant.
Fridge Art Fair was born on New York’s Lower East Side in May 2013, making it’s debut – under the tagline “Can you fit into the Fridge?” -- at Kazuko Miyamoto’s small but storied storefront, Gallery OneTwentyEight. The inaugural Miami show was presented at the somewhat more spacious Pax, on Calle Ocho. On March 31st 2014, Fridge was displaced from its expanded Lower East Side venue by the Dept. of Buildings closure of the historic and beloved Angel Orensanz Center, but was able to rebound and open as planned on May 8 and present an innovative, successful fair (including large-scale installations, a video lounge curated by Jeanne Wilkinson, and a Ferrari, presented by Dorian Grey Gallery, painted by John “Crash” Matos) at a 7,000 sf waterfront venue in Long Island City thanks to major sponsorship from Plaxall. With a loyal following of presenting galleries, organizations and artists, Fridge is growing while retaining its character as an intimate, accessible and enjoyable event.
Barlington Group was founded by Bill Fuller and Martin Pinilla II, in Miami Florida in June 2004, as an urban development company committed to revitalizing neighborhoods within Miami's urban core.  Since inception, Barlington Group has acquired, developed, and managed commercial projects with a value exceeding $50 million. Projects have focused on asset repositioning, ranging from multi-family, retail, office, and mixed use buildings. The company currently operates 100 plus multi-family units and more than 400,000 sqft of retail and office space in 13 retail and mixed-use centers. The company is also invested in retail, entertainment, and hospitality ventures. The core mission of the company is to have fun creating unique places to live, work, and play.

The magazine was founded by Jamie Martinez, Publisher and CEO, in 2008.

Jon Tsoi Solo Exhibition at Tally Beck Contemporary

Tally Beck Contemporary

Jon Tsoi: Father of Blindfold Art Medicine

Tally Beck Contemporary will present the first solo gallery exhibition at Tally Beck Contemporary for Chinese painter Jon Tsoi. Jon Tsoi’s solo exhibition, Father of Blindfold Art Medicine, will open, with a special performance by the artist, on Wednesday, June 11 and run through July 27, 2014.

Although this exhibition will be Tsoi’s first solo exhibition at Tally Beck Contemporary, Father of Blindfold Art Medicine will be his sixteenth solo exhibition in New York City. The show will feature approximately 16 acrylic and mixed media works on canvas. Tsoi’s work explores the use of art as holistic medicine to restore balance of body, mind, and spirit in the viewer. His work fuses Chinese medicine practices and Taoist philosophy to restore the balance of yin and yang through “Universal Life Energy.” Tsoi’s inquisitive nature prompted him to make the connection between meditation, spirituality, and healing with closed eyes. Because of this connection, Tsoi began making works while blindfolded and creates his pieces without the use of sight. He describes the creation of art as an internal journey that results in mystery. During his blindfolded performances, Tsoi relies on guidance from the energy of the universe to create channels for movement through cuts made in the canvas with a knife. This energy force also guides the color palettes to restore yin and yang through balance of a mental, physical, or spiritual condition.

Jon Tsoi currently lives in Connecticut and has exhibited work there as well as in New York City, New Jersey, and Florida. Tsoi is originally from China and studied in Sichuan. After moving to the United States in 1979, he attended classes at Montclair State University, and the Art Students’ League of New York in the early 1980s. As a certified acupuncturist, Tsoi consciously makes connections between art making and viewing with Chinese medicine practices and Taoist Philosophy.
Father of Blindfold Art Medicine will open at Tally Beck Contemporary, 42 Rivington Street, New York, on Wednesday, June 11, 2014, with an opening reception from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. featuring a special performance by the artist and cocktails by Mizu Shochu 美鶴乃舞 and Tiger Beer. The reception will begin at 6 p.m., and the performance will begin at 7:30 pm.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Tally Beck Contemporary will also present a series of lectures and other educational programming. All special events will feature cocktails by Mizu Shochu 美鶴乃舞 and Tiger Beer. Please check our website to stay updated with our event schedule.

“I think they don’t have the foresight to see the benefits that honoring the Beastie Boys and hip-hop can have for the community and also for New York City,” says McCarthy.

When the Beastie Boys dropped their second studio album, Paul’s Boutique, it was initially considered a commercial failure.
