Sweet Art – Remy Martin

Lunar New Year is the most popular holiday in Asia – it is also a major event in the United States as it is celebrated by more than 16 million Asian Americans each year. Art, craftsmanship, and savoir-vivre are always at the heart of this annual holiday – and the coming year is influenced by the food you offer at this occasion. This tradition had been a source of creative inspiration for Rémy Martin, which unveiled a Lunar New Year masterpiece made of sugar to wish the world a sweet Year of the Ox. The intention was to offer to the world a touch of sweetness following a very unique year.

This ambitious artistic project, developed with FRED & FARID New York, has been designed through the concept of “sweet art”: an original art technique inspired by sugar painting which is a traditional form of art made out of caramelized sugar. To achieve this unique artistic vision, Rémy Martin called upon artists of great excellence: a traditional Chinese sugar painting Master, Yajun Sui, and a Multimedia Artist, Elisabeth Hodes. It is a visual celebration of the meeting of tea culture and cognac culture, and the craft that goes into both of them. They teamed up to create the 65 detailed pieces that were used to build this masterpiece, spending over 100 hours and using over 20 pounds of sugar to celebrate the meeting of these two cultures of excellence.

Time, precision, sweet notes, dedication, patience … Those are the virtues involved to give life to this unique work of art – the exact attributes essential to the crafting of Rémy Martin cognac: a quest of perfection.

“In Between” by ZAZ10TS in Times Square

“In Between” is a new concept of video art exhibition curated by ZAZ10TS and presented on ZAZ Corner where continuous artwork is displayed for 15 seconds at a time on a large LED billboard in the heart of Times Square. Curated videos are interspersed between commercial messages every 2 minutes. Starting in September 2020, a new artist will be selected for the showcase each month.

ZAZ Corner, or as referred to by founder Tzili Charney as her “Artistic Mezuzah,” aims to engage the public with visuals that are different from the urban environment. With the launch of ZAZ Corner, ZAZ10TS is working with artists, organizations, universities, and cultural institutions to bring a wide selection of artwork to its digital billboard.
The “In Between” venue will kick off with artist Ben Hagari on September 1st with his pandemic inspired “About Face” video series. Ben Hagari is an award-winning artist whose artwork has been shown in prominent museums around the world. The “About Face” video project is shot entirely at home in New York City as the artist was isolated and stayed in place during the COVID 19 pandemic. The character, constrained by limited expression and space, continues to navigate daily routines. The faceless protagonist found new relevance with everyone around wearing masks, concealing their faces, and inevitably their facial expressions. The expressionless protagonist is shown from the back of his head which is shaved and a projected face void of all facial features. His wardrobe including footwear is worn with the front side on the back and all his movements are reversed.

“The scenarios portray a mundane existence in a world whose marks have been erased. Books have no titles or words, photographs are blanked out, labels are removed; we are left with data. It generates a binary structure: backward and forward, front and rear, serious and funny,” says Ben Hagari.


About Ben Hagari

Ben Hagari was born in Tel Aviv and lives and works in NYC. His work has been shown internationally in several solo exhibitions at the Rose Art Museum, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and Flora Ars+Natura in Bogotá. Selected group exhibitions featuring his work include the Sculpture Center in New York as part of their In-Practice survey of contemporary sculptures, the Whitechapel Gallery in London, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, Kunst im Tunnel Contemporary Art Museum in Düsseldorf, and the Israel Museum among others. Hagari has received numerous awards and fellowships for his work, including the Israel Ministry of Culture Prize in Art, the Foundation for Contemporary Art Emergency Grant, the David Berg Foundation Fellowship at Columbia University, and the Chami Fruchter Award for an Emerging Video Artist. He has attended several residency programs, including the LMCC (Lower Manhattan Cultural Council) residency Process Space at Governors Island in New York, the Fountainhead Residency in Miami, and the Bronner Residency in Düsseldorf. Hagari has also received a B.Ed Fine Arts degree from the Hamidrasha School of Art, Beit Berl College in Israel (2008), and an MFA from Columbia University in New York (2014).

SOCIALLY DISTANT THEATER: The Solo Show As Seen By Hirschfeld

Monday, May 11 to Saturday, June 20

The Al Hirschfeld Foundation is proud to announce the first in a series of online exhibitions exploring the work of one of the most iconic artists of the last century. On May 11, the Foundation opened a special exhibition for these times: “SOCIALLY DISTANT THEATER: The Solo Show As Seen By Hirschfeld”, a collection of 25 drawings, paintings, collages, and prints documenting a half century of one person shows. This special digital exhibit will be online for six weeks through June 20 at AlHirschfeldFoundation.org/exhibitions before a new exhibition is presented.

“In the world of the theater, the one-person show is perhaps the best situation and the worst,” writes David Leopold, Creative Director for the AHF in the introduction to the exhibition. “It is a supreme test of assurance and ability; of magnetism and charisma. But the format is also frightening; there’s no one to play against, to lean on, to share the criticism. For an actor, if there is no one else to take the blame, there is also no one to share the credit with as well. The applause at the end is for only one performer. In many ways these performers are all caricatures in the sense they have exaggerated elements of their subject to bring a whole life or simply a story to life. So in essence, Al Hirschfeld, the ultimate solo artist, is the ideal portraitist for this unique form of theater.”

In addition to showing the artwork in detail as it has never been seen before, throughout the exhibition are links to videos of parts or the whole of some of these solo performances. You can see Henry Fonda as Clarence Darrow, Julie Harris as Emily Dickinson, or Robert Morse as Truman Capote. Or you can see Eric Bogosian, Whoopi Goldberg, and John Leguizamo channel a seemingly endless parade of characters from their solo shows. It turns out being alone has never been so interesting

In keeping with the spirit of Hirschfeld, this exhibition is free and open to everyone. The show is part of the AHF’s continuing mission to promote interest in the theater and the performing and visual arts. to support its arts education program, there is a special gift shop of merchandise connected to the exhibition at online at AlHirschfeldFoundationshop.org/SDT.

Go behind the lines of Hirschfeld’s art with “The Hirschfeld Century Podcast,” nominated as “Best NYC podcast” by the 2020 Apple Awards. A special episode dedicated to the works featured in “Socially Distant Theater” will be available starting May 20 from AlHirschfeldFoundation.org/podcasts, iTunes and other popular podcast sits.
