October 31, 2014 by Samia

Other Criteria Talk With Carlo McCormick

This past Tuesday, a large group gathered on the lower level of Other Criteria's New York space to experience a lecture by writer and art critic Carlo McCormick.

As an extensive survey through the ages, McCormick cleverly delivered his thoughts and observations on the presence of drugs, narcotics in the arts from the prehistoric era to this present day.

Treats for the night included a 'Sizzurp' inspired  cocktail created by the staff. See more photos of the evening here.

Thomas Schiebitz 'Studio Imaginaire' at Tanya Bonadkar Gallery

October 22, 2014 by Samia

For his upcoming solo show at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery,Thomas Sheibitz was inspired by French author and art rhetorist, Andre Malraux's essay 'Musée Imaginaire.' In this essay, Malraux explores the shifts between perception and context that occur in art. The exhibition will present new painting, relief and sculpture by the artist.

Thomas Scheibitz's 'Studio Imaginaire' will exhibit at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery in New York, from October 23 to December 20, 2014.

Damien Hirst Self-Portraits At Ordovas Gallery

October 15, 2014 by Samia

'Self' opens at Ordovas gallery on October 14, 2014. The exhibit serves as an investigation of the various interpretations of self portraits by four of the greatest artists of the twentieth century: Francis Bacon, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Pablo Picasso.

'Self' includes a major self-portrait study made in 1901 by Picasso, which has never before been publicly exhibited, and one of the first studies of a single head ever painted by Bacon, which hasn't been shown in London for almost 50 years. Koons' bust from his celebrated 'Made in Heaven' is also on display alongside two Hirst works: 'With Dead Head' (1991), a photographic work showing a teenage Hirst with a severed head, pictured in the Leeds anatomy school he used to visit to make life drawings, and 'Self Portrait R.' (2008), a lightbox and x-ray of the artist's head. Both works are expressions of Hirst's life-long fascination in the attempt to comprehend death in life.
A conversation between Hirst and Koons on the subject is published in the exhibition catalogue.

Social Media Meets Art With David Birkin's Severe Clear

June 10, 2014 by Samia

This past Memorial Day the skies of New York City were emblazoned by a thought provoking statement. Artist David Birkin took an excerpt from a rejection letter sent by the CIA to the American Civil Liberties Union in response to their Freedom of Information Act request for information relating to the US Government's classified drone program. The full reply reads, "...the CIA can neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of records responsive to your request."

The artist then encouraged New Yorkers who saw the message to post photos on Twitter and Instagram. The result was a stunning assortment of blue sky images with white cloud like words providing a whimsical presentation with a very real and somewhat controversial message.The images will be featured in Birkin's upcoming Whitney ISP Exhibition.

Other Criteria's first US shop is a bi-level space located in Manhattan's SoHo area. To celebrate the opening we hosted a series of events with our artists and collaborators.

On May 7th we hosted our first trunkshow with Robert Keith and Kether Parker of Hoorsenbuhs where guests had the opportunity to order custom jewelry and get up close and personal with The Cathedral Collection available exclusively through Other Criteria.

Our May 8th event was a tea party for artist Harland Miller with signature british Yorkshire tea and Parkin cake. Attendees had the pleasure of meeting the artist and listening to his ideas on creativity.

The finale for the opening festivities took place on May 9th with artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster with custom tequila cocktails by Hudson Events. Some of our guests included Tracey Emin, Josh Cheuse, Antoine Verglas and Polly Borland.
