Calling All Cat Painters to the Brookyn Cat Painting Takedown

At the end of the November, the Takedown folks, responsible for the Bacon Takedown and many other food-themed events, are switching things up and letting people compete to see who in Brooklyn can paint the cat picture. Want in? The Brooklyn Cat Painting Takedown will take place on November 24 at Bushwick’s Active Space Gallery (566 Johnson Avenue), and will involve people hanging out and painting the best damn cat pictures they can. No one says they have to be pictures of cats that actually exists on this Earth though, if you want to get really creative about it. If you want to volunteer to paint a cat, email chilitakedown@gmail.com.

ICI Curator's Perspective: Mai Abu ElDahab at Hunter College

Mai Abu ElDahab
Wednesday, November 6, 2013
Hunter College MFA Studio Building
205 Hudson
New York, NY 10013

As part of ICI’s Curator’s Perspective—an itinerant public discussion series featuring international curators—Mai Abu ElDahab (co-curator of the 2014 Liverpool Biennial) will present her current research interests and curatorial projects.

Please RSVP to rsvp@curatorsintl.org with MAI ABU in the subject field.

The Curator’s Perspective is a free, itinerant public discussion series ICI developed as a way for international curators to share their research and experiences with audiences in New York. These talks provide ICI the opportunity to assemble documentation on and disseminate information about a wide variety of international perspectives on art today. This year audiences have heard perspectives on art, culture, and exhibition-making from curators based in Dakar, Jakarta, Gdansk, Berlin/Mexico City, and Melbourne. In fall 2013, practitioners will talk about what they’re most interested in at the moment, including the artists and the sociopolitical contexts that are shaping practices now.

The Curator’s Perspective series has been made possible, in part, by grants from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and by generous contributions from the ICI Board of Trustees and ICI Access Fund.
