More Scene Wednesday: 4Heads Introduces Portal

More Scene Wednesday: 4Heads Introduces Portal

April 6 / 16

Hey again….have one more thing to share with you and that is 4Heads Portal. Here’s a little tidbit about it……


cred: 4Heads

New Art Fair Will Launch May 2016 at Federal Hall National Memorial in Manhattan, Organized by Nonprofit 4heads, Inc.

Portal Art Fair Offers New Platform for Emerging Artists, And Invites Audiences to Rediscover Important Historic Landmark

Portal Continues Collaboration between 4heads, Inc. and the National Park Service, Following Success of 2015 Edition of Governors Island Art Fair

Press Preview to be Held on May 3; Open to the Public May 4 – 10

New York, NY—March 15, 2016—Portal, a new fair featuring approximately 40 artists, will open to the public on May 4 at historic Federal Hall National Memorial at 26 Wall Street. Developed by 4heads, Inc.—the nonprofit behind Governors Island Art Fair (GIAF)—the fair builds on the organization’s mission to provide new platforms for emerging artists, from across the U.S. and abroad, to engage with the public, arts professionals, and collectors, while highlighting historically significant landmarks across the city. Following the success of the eighth edition of GIAF in September 2015, 4heads, Inc. decided to create a new fair that will leverage art world activity in New York City in early May to support the work of young and emerging artists.

Federal Hall National Memorial, which opened in 1842 as the United States Customs House, was designed by American sculptor John Frazee. Featured artists will install their work across three floors of the building, including the grand entrance rotunda, second floor galleries and balconies, and the lower level rotunda, allowing visitors to rediscover the monumental architecture through a diverse range of artistic perspectives.

Portal marks the second major collaboration between 4heads, Inc. and the National Park Service, following the successful exhibition of artist installations in Fort Jay at Governors Island National Monument last fall, and coincides with the centennial celebrations of the National Park Service throughout this year. As part of the National Park Service’s ongoing support for new artistic endeavors, Federal Hall will open to the public over the weekend, May 7-8, to encourage audience engagement with both the fair and the site.

Artists for Portal will be selected through an invitational process. 4heads, Inc. leadership will invite a selection of artists, many of whom have presented work across the eight editions of GIAF, and request proposals for engaging with specific areas of Federal Hall National Memorial. The vision is to provide individuals with a new opportunity to develop and present their work, building on their successes at GIAF and nurturing continued support for their practices. Final selections for participants will be made in April.

Portal will be carefully curated to present a diversity of work, including painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media installations, and sound and video works. Among the artists already confirmed to participate are:

● Brooklyn-based artist Hannah Hill, whose thickly-painted works are inspired by the folklore and otherworldliness of the Deep South. Mysterious and, at times, haunting, Hill’s paintings mix remembrances of her youth with stories of magic.

● French artist Laetitia Soulier, whose meticulously composed photographs layer geometric patterns, objects from interior spaces, and human figures and limbs. Her works draw in and disorient the viewer, defying any clear reference or orientation.

● Uzbekistan-born, New York-based artist Alexandr Razin, whose mixed media constructions illuminate the process of their own making. Mining materials from everyday life, Razin creates large-scale dream-like creatures and machines that appear poised to either awaken into life or simply topple into a heap of broken parts.

● Brooklyn-based artist Will Kurtz, who creates realistic, life-sized figures from newspaper collaged over internal structures of wood and wire. His subjects are everyday people, often living on the margins of society, who evoke the familiarity of strangers we pass on the street.

● New York artist Dong Hee Lee, who uses hot glue as her primary material to create 3- dimensional abstract forms that evoke living organisms and organic matter, from the level of the cell or the idea of the universe.

As with GIAF, featured artists exhibit for free, and no admission to the fair will be charged, to encourage a wide array of individuals to participate as either exhibitor or viewer. Portal provides a new opportunity to experience the work of 40 artists in a week teeming with activity, and to reignite interest in the city’s architecture and history.

About 4heads, Inc: 4heads is non-profit organization run by artists for artists. It was launched in 2008, when artists Nicole Laemmle, Jack Robinson, and Antony Zito saw an opportunity to create a platform that would serve emerging artists and the local community through exhibitions, education programs, and artistic collaborations. The organization’s DIY spirit inspires and excites its audiences, while catalyzing a dialogue between artists and people from all walks of life. Its diverse slate of initiatives includes Governors Island Art Fair, Portal art fair, arts-education initiatives for underserved communities, and an Artists in Residence program. 4heads is committed to shedding new light on hidden culture and bringing new life to unexpected and unique spaces across the city. www.4heads.org

About Federal Hall National Memorial: For 17 momentous months, from 1789 to 1790, the location of Federal Hall National Memorial was the seat of the United States federal government under the new Constitution. Moving into the former New York City Hall, Congress passed many of the founding laws of the nation and approved the Bill of Rights for ratification by the states. The 1883 statue of George Washington commemorates where our first president took the oath of office on April 30, 1789. The original building, torn down in 1812, was also the site of the trial and acquittal of printer John Peter Zenger in 1735, and the location where the Continental Congress passed the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which defined the process of creating new states. The current building, constructed in 1842 as the U.S. Customs House, is one of the architectural marvels of New York City. www.nps.gov/feha

Location, Hours, and Transportation: Portal takes place at Federal Hall National Memorial, 26 Wall Street, New York, NY. Open May 4-10, 2016 10am – 5pm Admission is free. A press preview will be held on May 3, at 11:00 am.

Federal Hall is easily accessible by bus and subway, in the hub of the Manhattan Financial District:

By Subway: 2, 3, 4, 5 to Wall Street J, Z to Broad Street

By Bus – M5 to Rector Street M15, M20 to South Ferry

Tribeca Film Festival 2016

Tribeca Film Festival 2016

March 7 / 16

Hello….just stopped by to give you something that’s happening and this is what’s going on at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival 2016. The dates are April 13-24, 2016. Here is a press release that was announced in February. Be prepared, it’s a lot of reading!


(all cred: Tribeca Film Festival)

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

2016 TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL® ANNOUNCES US NARRATIVE, INTERNATIONAL NARRATIVE, AND DOCUMENTARY COMPETITION SELECTIONS, PLUS OUT-OF-COMPETITION VIEWPOINTS FILMS

Separate categories introduced for American and global Narrative Competition films at 15th Annual TFF, April 13-24

NEW YORK, NY– February 22, 2015 –The 2016 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by AT&T, today announced the US Narrative, International Narrative, and Documentary Competition feature film selections, as well as Viewpoints, which recognizes fresh voices in international and American independent filmmaking. Separate sections were created for US Narrative and International Narrative feature films in competition. Fifty-five of the 101 feature-length titles were announced as part of the Festival’s 15th edition, taking place April 13 – 24 at locations throughout downtown Manhattan.

The Festival announced that on April 14, the world premiere of Contemporary Colordirected by Bill Ross and Turner Ross will open the World Documentary competition. The world premiere of Kicks, directed by Justin Tipping,will open the US Narrative competition. The world premiere of Madly, directed by Gael García Bernal, Mia Wasikowska, Sebastian Silva, Anurag Kashyap, Sion Sono, and Natasha Khan, will open the International Narrative Competition. Viewpoints will open with the world premiere ofNerdland directed by Chris Prynoski.

One third of the Festival’s feature films are directed by women — the highest percentage in the Festival’s history. Twelve female directors and screenwriters are eligible to receive the fourth annual Nora Ephron Prize, which recognizes women who embody the spirit and vision of the legendary filmmaker and writer.

The 2016 film program includes feature films from 32 countries, including 77 World Premieres, eight International Premieres, six North American Premieres, four US Premieres, and five New York Premieres. A total of 130 directors will present feature works at the Festival, with 42 of these filmmakers making their feature directorial debuts. Eighteen of the directors are returning to the Festival with their new films. The film slate was chosen from a total of 6626 submissions.

“In our 15th year we wanted to deepen our support of American narrative filmmakers and have opened our competition to separately showcase the US and International films,” said Genna Terranova, Festival Director. “We are very impressed by the films this year and inspired to see new voices transcending traditions and taking risks by telling their stories their own way. We are excited to share with audiences how the world of independent documentary and narrative filmmaking is thriving.”

“With our new International Narrative Competition we are reinforcing our faith in cinema from around the world and belief that Tribeca is a fantastic platform for filmmakers to share their vision. Over the ten days of the Festival these films will take our audiences on a cinematic adventure, and offer a wide range of perspective in both the stories they tell and the methods through which they’re told,” said Frederic Boyer, Artistic Director.

“The Festival has grown into a platform for discovery of new and distinct voices for both audiences and industry. Over 80% of the world premieres eligible for acquisition at last year’s Festival were sold. We are energized by this year’s filmmakers and films and look forward to introducing them to our Festival-going community, and premiering new work from several returning artists,” said Paula Weinstein, Executive Vice President of Tribeca Enterprises.

This year, ten US narratives, eight international narratives, and 12 documentary features making their North American, international, or world premieres will compete for cash prizes totaling $155,000, as well as artwork from the Artists Awards program, offering donated work from contemporary artists.

The films selected for the US Narrative Competition, International Narrative Competition, World Documentary Competition, and Viewpoints are:

US Narrative Competition
Sponsored by AKA Hotel Residences
Launching in 2016, Tribeca introduces a new competitive section dedicated to American films and filmmakers. Largely made up of first-time directors, the inaugural US competition recognizes the extraordinary work emerging from independent communities. This freshman class of US competitors come from backgrounds as diverse as music (Robert Schwartzman, Dreamland), documentary (Ian Olds, The Fixer), webseries (Ingrid Jungermann, Women Who Kill), and stand-up comedy (Demetri Martin, Dean), but all possess the distinctive directorial vision that makes them a talent to watch. This new competition affirms Tribeca’s commitment to discovering and bolstering US voices. The ten films will compete for the Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Actor, and Best Actress.

Opening Film
Kicks, directed by Justin Tipping, written by Justin Tipping and Josh Beirne-Golden. (USA) – World Premiere. When his hard-earned kicks get snatched by a local hood, fifteen-year old Brandon and his two best friends go on an ill-advised mission across the Bay Area to retrieve the stolen sneakers.

With Jahking Guillory, Mahershala Ali, Kofi Siriboe, Christopher Jordan Wallace, Christopher Meyer. A Focus World release.

Always Shine, directed by Sophia Takal, written by Lawrence Michael Levine. (USA) – World Premiere. This twisty psychological drama about obsession, fame, and femininity follows two friends, both actresses (Mackenzie Davis and Caitlin FitzGerald), on a trip to Big Sur, to reconnect with one another. Once alone, the women’s suppressed jealousies and deep-seated resentments begin to rise, causing them to lose their grasp on not only the true nature of their relationship, but also their identities. With Lawrence Michael Levine, Alex Koch, Jane Adams

AWOL, directed by Deb Shoval, written by Deb Shoval and Karolina Waclawiak. (USA) – World Premiere. Joey (Lola Kirke) is a young woman in search of direction in her small town. A visit to an army recruiting office appears to provide a path, but when she meets and falls in love with Rayna (Breeda Wool) that path diverges in ways that neither woman anticipates. Building on the award-winning short of the same name, director Deb Shoval crafts a clear-eyed love story, and an impressive feature film debut.

Dean, directed and written by Demetri Martin. (USA) – World Premiere. In comedian Demetri Martin’s funny and heartfelt directorial debut, Martin plays an illustrator who falls hard for an LA woman (Gillian Jacobs) while trying to prevent his father (Kevin Kline) from selling the family home in the wake of his mother’s death. With Rory Scovel, Ginger Gonzaga, Reid Scott, Mary Steenburgen, Christine Woods, Beck Bennett, Briga Heelan

Dreamland, directed by Robert Schwartzman, written by Benjamin Font and Robert Schwartzman. (USA) – World Premiere. Robert Schwartzman makes his directorial debut with this comedy about the cost of reaching your dreams. Part-time pianist Monty Fagan (Johnny Simmons) begins a May-December romance that upends his home life. A set of perfectly cast co-stars push or manipulate Monty along the way: Amy Landecker, Frankie Shaw, Alan Ruck, Beverly D’Angelo, along with Robert’s older brother Jason Schwartzman, and their mother Talia Shire.

The Fixer, directed by Ian Olds, written by Paul Felten and Ian Olds. (USA) – World Premiere. After an exiled Afghan journalist (Dominic Rains) arrives in a small town in Northern California, he lands a menial job as a crime reporter for the local newspaper. Restless in his new position, he teams up with an eccentric local (James Franco) to investigate the town’s peculiar subculture only to find things quickly taking a dangerous turn. With Melissa Leo, Rachel Brosnahan, Tim Kniffin, Thomas Jay Ryan

Folk Hero & Funny Guy, directed and written by Jeff Grace. (USA) – World Premiere. Alex Karpovsky and Wyatt Russell co-headline as two artistically inclined childhood friends, a comedian and a folk-rocker respectively, who set out on a tour together in hopes of regaining their “mojo” and finding love in the process. Jeff Grace’s debut film offers a fresh perspective on male friendship and a music infused spin on the classic road-trip buddy comedy. With Meredith Hagner, Michael Ian Black, Hannah Simone, Heather Morris, Melanie Lynskey, David Cross

Live Cargo, directed by Logan Sandler, written by Logan Sandler and Thymaya Payne. (USA, Bahamas) – World Premiere. Nadine (Dree Hemingway) and Lewis (Keith Stanfield) move to a small Bahamian island hoping to restore their relationship in the wake of a tragedy, only to find the picturesque island torn in two: on one side a dangerous human trafficker and on the other an aging patriarch, struggling to maintain order. With Leonard Earl Howze, Sam Dillon, Robert Wisdom

The Ticket, directed by Ido Fluk, written by Ido Fluk and Sharon. (USA) – World Premiere. When a blind man inexplicably regains his vision, he becomes possessed by a drive for a better life—a nicer home, a higher paying job—leaving little room for the people who were part of his old life. Dan Stevens, Malin Åkerman, Oliver Platt, and Kerry Bishé star in this haunting parable of desire, perception, and ambition.

Women Who Kill, directed and written by Ingrid Jungermann. (USA) – World Premiere. Morgan and Jean work well together as true crime podcasters because they didn’t work well, at all, as a couple. When Morgan strikes up a new relationship with the mysterious Simone, their shared interest turns into suspicion, paranoia, and fear. Ingrid Jungermann’s whip smart feature debut is an adept and wry comedy on modern romance’s hollow results, set in an LGBTQ Brooklyn. With Ingrid Jungermann, Ann Carr, Sheila Vand, Shannon O’Neill, Annette O’Toole, Grace Rex

International Narrative Competition
With work spanning five continents, the themes and perspectives of Tribeca’s first International Competition are literally all over the map. Not surprisingly then, travel features strongly in the films. Whether it’s two brothers heading out on a road trip to meet their idol Cristiano Ronaldo in El Clásico, or an American woman on a pilgrimage to Peru to experience an ayahuasca ceremony (Icaros: A Vision), or even an Argentinian expat returning to his roots in the Jewish district of Buenos Aires in The Tenth Man, the characters, like their audience, are crossing borders for new and enlightening experiences.

World Documentary Competition
Sponsored by Bira 91

In its 15 year history, Tribeca’s esteemed documentary competition has showcased discovery directors, future Oscar nominees, and legendary filmmakers including the likes of Albert Maysles. This year’s selection continues the tradition of recognizing vital current voices in nonfiction film.
