DifFRactions Théâtre is proud to announce its new multidisciplinary production:
The Workroom (L'Atelier) and the Exhibit Love Letters A tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, and a commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII, “The Workroom” takes place in the centre of Paris, in the workroom of a tailor shop owned by Jewish Eastern-European immigrants. It begins a few months after the liberation of Paris. Léon and Hélène have reopened the workroom and now employ Madame Laurence, Gisèle, Mimi, Marie, and Simone. All these lives cross paths with each other in this tragicomedy where laughter and tears succeed one another, and raise the same single question: how does one keep on living after the trauma of the war and the Holocaust?

Xingyi Hu: Unidentified - Paintings and Installations
Opening Reception: Friday, April 24, 6pm-9pm
On View: April 25 to May 7, 2015
Hu Xing Yi extends his work from paintings to three-dimensional mediums and spaces. In Identity Eliminating
System, he continues to discuss human character and individuality, or the lack of them in the current social
environment. Some of the pieces in the exhibition include face casts of people from all walks of life. These faces fill
up all sorts of rice bowls and take-out boxes. Other pieces are large casted iron woks with vaguely painted faces
inside, and birdcages with live birds pecking breads made from the casts of artist’s own face.
Dreams once we had are now being rapidly consumed by realities. And our identities are being consumed
by our living. Our identities are voluntarily or involuntarily switched, eliminated or reconstituted. The results are
frustrations - conscience is consumed by materialism and human characters are canceled by desires. In the work,
faces have been copied and reproduced again and again, and become distorted from reality, as if our identities had
been slowly lost and obscured. What this work subliminally reveals is a poetic aesthetics and social and humanistic
connotation. Through his art, the artist explores and contemplates his own being and his role in a social group, and
the responsibilities such a role bears.
In this installation, the live birds peck and eat the breads made from the artist’s face casts. Its symbolism expresses the helplessness in the current social and cultural environment where idealism, human nature and individuality are being put under house arrest, consumed and eliminated. In this helplessness, people can only immerse in the vicious circle of senseless and excessive acts of being consuming and consumed. People of different identities are lost in the entrapment of their own dreams. The rice bowls and take-out boxes in the exhibition are also full of cultural significance and specific symbolism. Some of the faces held inside the bowls and boxes are without expressions, some are soulless and some are contorted and distorted, as if they were the malformed creatures produced by the modernization of a specific social setting and by the pressing from a collective consciousness. The expressionistic paintings and as well as the installation objects that remind the kind of philosophical significance in Joseph Beuys’ works, present to us many layers of meanings and the tension of thoughts, and at the same time spark introspection and self-examination.

Terry Smith. Opening Reception: Thursday, February 20, 6pm-9pm
On View: February 20 - March 6, 2014
Terry Smith represents a surprisingly uncommon strand in the practice of contemporary art in the UK. His practice,
which has been developing over twenty-five years, has its roots in Anti-Form European and American conceptualism.
And although Smith studied at Goldsmiths and was working in London throughout the heyday of the YBAs,
he was never seduced by the glamour and high profile achievements of his contemporaries preferrings
to pursue his investigations into the way in which the complexities of ideas, materials and the everydays
can combine to make poetic statements that predate the fluidity of an art scene that has steereds
clear of any strong uniform trend.
One Art Space has invited the British Artist Terry Smith to make a pop show at their New York Gallery to help
support a project called twenty three lines, a collaborative performance work at the National Art Schools
in Havana Cuba. This exhibition called PROJECTSPACE follows on from an exhibition last year at the
Drawing Center Lab space in a show called Document.

Presented by James Goldcrown.
On View: Tuesday, February 4, 6pm-9pm
Join James Goldcrown for his upcoming show, Hunger Game, his 12-year examination of fashion photography.
His perspective was shaped by years of editorial, runway and behind the scenes access to this elite world.
With competitive behavior, long exhausting hours, and bizarre dieting, what may come across as a glamorous
life is not at all.
Models at runway shows seem much like food. The designer is the chef, their assistants prep the food and then
pass it to the head chef. The food is sent out to the restaurant that admires it (her) for a second; the diners
become satiated; and then they move onto their next meal. Come experience a unique show that encapsulates
the fashion world in a distinct way: Hunger Game.

On December 14, 2012, Scarlett Lewis experienced something that no parent ever should:
she lost her son Jesse in an act of unimaginable violence. Following the Newtown School shooting
and Jesse’s death, Scarlett went on an unexpected journey, inspired by a simple three-word message
he had scrawled on a chalkboard in their home: nurturing healing love.
Nurturing Healing Love is Scarlett’s story of how choosing love is changing her life — and how
it could change our world.

The inspiration for this body of work came in New York during the last two years. The artist explores
issues of individual identity in a fast-changing world where anchoring points are disappearing.
These themes, familiar in Maria’s work, take a new twist here as emotions are amplified by the
uniquely fast-paced rhythm of the archetypal metropolis, New York.

In urban design, the term “shared space” refers to an area where demarcating features br> such as traffic signs, road markings and curbs are removed in order to heighten br> the awareness of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians of each other’s presence. By increasing br> the sense of uncertainty, those who enter a shared space tend to become more attentive br> to others. A shared space necessitates an ongoing negotiation.
The 2013 Queens College MFA exhibition takes its title from this idea that those br> who enter a shared space must acknowledge the presence of others with different practices, br> vehicles, speeds, and methods of working. This exhibition similarly recognizes and br> highlights the distinct bodies of work that each artist has developed over the course br> of their time at Queens College.

Through Windows. Opening Reception: Thursday, February 21, 6pm - 9pm
On View: February 21 - March 16, 2013
Michele Krauss is an abstract impressionist who resides in New York. Chilean born and widely traveled, she has recently created her latest series of works that incorporate her signature elements of fluid movement contrasted with precise geometric shapes. This series, "Through Windows," continues portraying feminine ethereal color intruded by severe masculine areas. By juxtaposing basic geometric shapes with texture, color and line, the artist creates unique pieces of work that feature abstract and innovative landscapes. Now, however, she further incorporates perspective, asking "Are we looking out thorough the window,
The twelve pieces play on her impressionistic use of shadow and light, while the titles beckon the viewer into each scene. For example, "Do You Love Me," (image attached) evokes the passion enveloping and overcoming the innocent serenity, while the "window," implies the male principle—but whether it is the cause or bystander of the scene is for the viewer to decide. Krauss's work entices her audience to journey and contemplate within each canvas. She is frequently playful—either in title, "Uh Oh," or in concept, "Amuse Me."
Krauss has established herself both nationally and internationally. Her work has been exhibited in numerous reputable contemporary art fairs, and in solo and group exhibits in Italy, France, Australia, Chile, and the United States. Her work can be found in private collections worldwide.
Michele Krauss’ “Through Windows” will open at One Art Space located at 23 Warren Street (between Church and Broadway) on the evening of Thursday, February 21st, from 6 to 9 pm. Her work will be available to view from February 22 to March 16, Tuesday – Saturday, 11:30 am – 6 pm.

The artist will be exhibiting at least 25 pieces ranging in size from 6 by 6 inches to 8 by 8 feet. The main focus

They will be presented in many ways — from 6 foot resined canvases, to the original bundles of letters
tied with string, to a letter-wrapped suitcase.

Pertaining to the Character.
On View: March 21 - April 3, 2012
Curated by Michelle Levy
"A snapshot of recent work by Queens College MFA students, Pertaining to the Character is an exhibition that calls upon the imbued characteristics of things. These things are materials: whether they be discarded objects, natural bodies, architectural structures, ancestral crafts, forms of currency, paper, or paint. The artists, hailing from diverse backgrounds, all show great respect for the characteristics of the materials they source, exploiting the potentials of transformation."
Content. On view: February 23 - March 15, 2012
One Art Space presents the artist Andres Michelena in a solo exhibition.
"Content" is a metalinguistic proposal that explores the possible limits of perception and the assimilation of the artistic fact through what could be defined as visual haikus, or even visual koans. Everyday objects, unresolved situations, metamorphosis and quotes from universally recognized works are presented as aerial views of small Zen gardens, wherein the challenge consists in their frugality, synthesis and austerity - all essential qualities in achieving an equilibrium/disequilibrium which starts from a quiet reserve, without thereby losing the possibility of the playful and the anecdotal.
Big Picture. On view: February 2 - 18, 2012
One Art Space presents the American artist John Boone in a solo exhibition.
"Idioms are the perfect folk art. They belong to no one, are not authored by anyone and are used by all who use English. I collect them, edit them, arrange them and hand paint them in an italicized digital font of my design. The font is technical, empirical and precise while it carries a wide variety of mostly imprecise and casual subject matter. Basically, it is a low tech reflection of commonly expressed thoughts through high tech signage. With roots in Pop, Conceptual, Fluxus, advertising and journalism my artworks are short hand communication prompts." -John Boone

Nostalgia, November 6 - November 13, 2011
A group exhibition of nine artists, nine ways of seeing, different subjects, all in NYC. Some have been here longer than others. But somehow, you can tell they all came from Caracas.
Nostalgia brings together the works of Anita Pantin, David Foote, Lucia Vera, Maria Schon, Mariana Martin Capriles, Marisela La Grave, Pilita Garcia Ezquivel, Sergio Hase Barrios, and Valeria Cordero employing a range of styles and methodologies including, video, collage, painting, photography, sculpture and installation. Aside from the conspicuous connection of nationality, each work selected for this exhibition shares in transmitting a certain element of reminiscence, and nostalgia.
There is a fleeting moment in every piece where one can see whether in a subliminal or more blatant sense a longing for some aspect of the tropics.
