2012:Time For Change

Friday, 7/9/2010 7:15 PM

Just so you all know, they Mayan's think we're all gonna die. Think about it. Other than that 2012:Time For Change  presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom.  Directed by Emmy Award nominee João Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck, author of the bestselling 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, on a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

Tanja Grunert and Klemens Gasser presented a drawing/video/performance exhibition last night at Gasser Grunert by Michael Alan.

Michael Alan creates moments in time that overlap drawing, painting, sculpture, music and video. They inspire live performance and installation happenings. All of his work begins with drawings. These drawings serve as the foundation for his installations, performances, and videos. Working with a team of performers, Alan assembles living installations where all these creative elements merge.

Mark Borghi Fine Art in Bridgehampton celebrated the opening of  “Andrew Levitas: Metalwork,” photographs on aluminum of images taken in Sagaponack and elsewhere on the East End. The show will opened Saturday with a reception at 6 p.m. and it can be seen through July 11.
    By the age of 15, Mr. Levitas, who grew up in New York City, was writing, painting, shooting photographs, being mentored by Allen Ginsberg, and was involved in an experimental theater company.
    After pursuing an acting career, he developed a method of photography, called metalwork, “a process involving the transfer of photographs into transparencies that are in turn melted onto hand-detailed metal sheets,” according to the gallery.
    “The result is a work that combines the imagery of a photograph with the presence of a sculpture,” the gallery said.
