A New York hotel that introduces Australian Aboriginal art
In the late 18th century, Tonchinville, on Wall Street in Manhattan, was a tavern and coffee shop and the site of the New York Stock Exchange. Next month, the former trading center will be reopened as a Wall Street Hotel. The Wall Street Hotel is a 180-room boutique, and the current owner, Australian pearl producer Pasdaleys, said Cultural Hub. For hotel art selection, we have partnered with APY Art Center Collective, an indigenous-led organization specializing in the promotion of Australian Aboriginal art. Examples of commissioned works-prints of constellation-inspired paintings by Majan Canoris and layered lands and dream landscapes by Betty Muffler, who prefer black and red ocher-are ubiquitous. After a self-guided tour, enjoy cappuccinos and cocktails in the all-day lounge with luxurious velvet seats, or explore the financial district on a free velvet bike. Room from $ 499, thewallsthotel.com..
Los Angeles hatmaker Nick Fouquet was studying cowboy boots and thinking about extending them to shoes when he received a call about collaboration from the respected Texas boots brand Lucchese, which was founded in 1883. “It was a very coincidence-a sign,” says Fouquet, who created the headpieces for fashion houses Givenchy and Rochas 10 years ago before launching his own line. And the partnership makes sense. Both brands defend homemade craftsmanship while aiming to update Americana’s ideas. “There are so many similarities in anatomy and structure. There are band blocks. Fouquet visited the Lucquese archive in El Paso and saw the last made for John Wayne, Gregory Peck and Jane Russell. After all, the label gave some classic Russell models a 70’s spin, top-stitched leather and toned suede stack heel boots, snappy two-tone loafers, and some printed silk. He came up with eight new styles, including Necka Chief. (Of course) a cowboy-style hat. Still, Fouquet promises, “The work will be at home on the streets of Paris as much as a ranch.” Accessories from $ 240. Shoes from $ 895, nickfouquet.com When lucchese.com..
Peep into the colorful hearts of Niki de Saint Phalle
The biography of Nicole Radick’s Nouveau réalism artist Niki de Saint Phalle, “What is known now was once imagined,” is from William Blake’s “The Marriage of Heaven and Hell” (1790). Take its title from a fragment that was (possibly intentionally) incorrectly quoted. It appears in one of the typical Rococo graffiti of Sanfal. This line is also the perfect tag for a particular brand of 20th century aesthetic provocatives. “I spent my time questioning my life,” she wrote in a 1992 note addressed to her deceased mother. “I will fall in love with the question mark.” Such a greedy curiosity led to her various self-educational pursuits as a painter, draftsman, and sculptor — perhaps in Tuscany. Best known for the Gaudi-inspired installation “Tarot Garden” in Pesha Fiorentina — writers, filmmakers, gardeners and incense makers. In her subtitle, Rudick (who contributed to T) calls this book “(her autobiographical) biography.” This is because it is almost entirely composed of hundreds of colorful sketches of Sanfal and her letters, essays and mountains of Marginalia. The artist is, among other things, obsessed with adolescent love (she met her future husband, writer Harry Mathews at the age of 11), mental illness, and Harlequin’s fantasy that pervades her everyday life. The result is an intimate scrapbook of the life of one of the most original artists of the century. $ 45, sigliopress.com..
New gallery on the Upper East Side
Having clenched his teeth in influential galleries such as Paula Cooper and Paul Kasmin, Polina Berlin opens his gallery on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. With a lush backyard garden and plenty of natural light, the 2,000-square-foot space, once a townhouse parlor floor, retains a homely atmosphere. And this is appropriate because Berlin wants the gallery to foster a close bond. “The artists of POLA’s program have such praise for each other and are pushing each other to ignite new ideas,” says Berlin. “It’s very satisfying to happen in my space.” Titled “Emotional Intelligence,” the gallery’s first show next week will feature a variety of kinship riffs. This includes works by 10 artists, including three semi-abstract nude paintings by Roy Hollowell and a painting by Shannon Cartier Lucy with an umbrella that says “God is gorgeous.” It contains. Berlin sees this show as a kind of mission statement. “These artists are very sensitive to how people are treated,” she says. “And if I can make the world of art better for the people I work with, I feel responsible for doing it.” The “Emotional Intelligence Index” will be held from February 22nd to March 26th. polinaberlingallery.com..
