Opening Jan. 18 | Judith Bernstein 'Money Shot' | Paul Kasmin Gallery

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the forthcoming exhibition of new paintings by Judith Bernstein, who has joined the gallery’s roster of artists. The exhibition, entitled Money Shot, will be on view from January 18 to March 3, 2018 at 293 Tenth Avenue and features seven new large-scale paintings that emphatically continue the artist’s incendiary political critique of the current Trump administration.

In the artist’s words, “I am showing Trump for what he is: a fool, a monster, a jester, a sexist, a racist. Donald Trump is a con artist, using the White House as his own personal cash machine.”

On October 3, 2017 from 7 - 10 PM at MAK Vienna, Rolf Sachs will be presenting performance Word & Sound in light of Vienna Design Week. 

Everything is design for the artist and designer Rolf Sachs: language, upbringing, how we move and what we eat—everyone is a designer. For the MAK Design Nite, a happening has been conceived that describes Sachs’s understanding of the world around him using keywords. With these keywords, he captures the effect of a chair and the sensation of surfaces, while personal topics such as tolerance and childhood also become an expression of his take on design.

"It’s my first political performance and I just felt I had to do it now. I wanted to show that any wall is dismantleable. We, the public, can tear down walls when society gets together. It could be a mental, physical, or political wall—the point is, it’s ephemeral."
