The Largest Travelling Black Artist Focused Art Show Presents Three-Days of Culture, Community and Commerce in New York City

NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) will celebrate their 15th year of being the largest traveling arts show featuring Artists from the African Diaspora. This show will feature up to 100 artists of African, Caribbean, and Black descent over a monumental three-day cultural experience and festival at the end of Black History Month, 2023, in New York City.

African Diaspora
Andrew Nichols, “Feeling Good”

The 15th Anniversary Celebration: Celebrating Art and Culture in America is inspired by the Harlem Renaissance; the 2023 curator for the three-day experience will be Debra Vanderburg Spencer, the award-winning and museum-trained Curator and Art Historian who has worked with: U.S. Congress, Architect of the Capitol, National Endowment for the Arts, William J. Clinton Foundation and The Romanian Cultural Institute in Bucharest, Romania. Ms. Spencer has guided numerous art initiatives for institutions such as Harlem’s 125th Street Improvement District, New York Foundation for the Arts and the Harlem Arts Alliance. She holds a graduate degree from Harvard University.

HFAS provides a platform for African Diasporic Artists and American Visual Artists to exhibit and sell their works. The weekend will salute esteemed illustrator Brenda Joysmith all weekend. This three-day event serves as an economic platform for the multi-cultural, general market, and arts communities to empower and increase market share in numerous regions throughout the United States and around the world. For the first time, the Harlem Fine Arts Show will take place in Midtown Manhattan at The Glass House, 660 12th Avenue (between 49th & 50th), New York City.

The 15th Anniversary Celebration will take place in an expansive new venue, opening up endless possibilities for HFAS as we look to intensify our efforts toward amplifying the voices of Artists from the African Diaspora to a global audience. Remaining true to our community, we will be sourcing as many vendors, caterers, and activations as possible from Harlem-based businesses, restaurants, and cultural centers.

“HFAS prides itself on a sole tenet: creating economic empowerment, educational opportunities, and professional recognition for the artists in our shows. These artists have been forced to make hard pivots in how they showcase and sell their work in the new-normal of a Post-COVID-19 economy. However, the poignancy of their individual works is more important now than ever. This work, created by African Diaspora, will tell the story of this unprecedented moment in history: the choices we made in this moment of historical change, and most importantly: how we felt,” says Dion Clarke, Founder, Harlem Fine Arts Show.

LG HOSTS EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE SERIES SHOWCASING THE BEST OF CONTEMPORARY ARTS 

Published

on

On Behalf of Premium Brand LG SIGNATURE, LG Introduces Immersive Performances at the LG Arts Center SEOUL

SEOUL, South Korea /PRNewswire/ — LG Electronics (LG) brought together the world of art and technology with its ultra-premium brand, LG SIGNATURE, sponsoring two immersive performances at the LG Arts Center SEOUL in South Korea last week.

One of the most sought-after performances in the Center’s opening festival, the series introduced Korean audiences to Yoann Bourgeois, renowned artistic director-choreographer and performance artist, for the first time. The performance series well marks LG’s time-old commitment to the cultivation of the arts beginning from the operation of the LG Arts Center SEOUL.

After 22 years of operation, the LG Arts Center SEOUL re-opened its doors again to the public in October in a building designed by Japanese architectural virtuoso Tadao Ando. A testimony to LG’s devotion to the arts, the relocated Center boasts a spacious, new performance venue, the LG SIGNATURE Hall. The remarkable space has seating for 1,335 and is home to special performing arts programs from all over the world, including the Yoann Bourgeois series.

Introduced to South Korea for the first time, Bourgeois, who has a diverse background that includes circus training, is a major figure in the global contemporary performing arts scene. His riveting performances celebrate the beauty of physical movement, blurring the boundary between acrobatics and dance and revealing a truly unique creative vision. Bourgeois’s artistry and innovative approach to his craft echo the philosophy of LG SIGNATURE, a brand whose home appliances seamlessly unite the best of art and technology.

Proudly sponsored by LG on behalf of the LG SIGNATURE brand, the inspiring He Who Falls was performed by the National Choreographic Center of Grenoble under Bourgeois’s direction, with the late Frank Sinatra’s signature song, My Way, accompanying the dynamic movements of the performers. Opening 2, a short yet equally mesmerizing work, introduced audiences to the grace, power and presence that Bourgeois so effortlessly brings to the stage. As a part of LG SIGNATURE’s extensive customer experiences, select customers and clients were invited to attend both performances.

During the Yoann Bourgeois series, visitors to LG Arts Center SEOUL were treated to an opportunity to enjoy the exclusive pop-up LG SIGNATURE exhibition and photo zone located in the LG SIGNATURE Hall lobby. Echoing the unique architectural design philosophy of Tadao Ando, the exhibition zone offered a glimpse into the best of LG SIGNATURE’s innovations, such as the Wine Cellar, InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and OLED R TV. Meanwhile, the ultra-interactive photo zone featured memorable moments from the Yoann Bourgeois series for audiences to immerse in.

“It was a great honor to introduce audiences in Korea to the artistic innovation of the inimitable Yoann Bourgeois,” said Lee Jeong-seok, head of LG Electronics Global Marketing Center. “Staying true to our philosophy, we will continue to partner with artists and institutions that share our vision of a better world through the power of art.”

An innovative brand founded on the philosophy of bringing art and technology together as one, LG SIGNATURE will continue to support the best of the arts, worldwide. More on the brand’s high-profile art collaborations can be found on LG Newsroom.

“Working with the team at Mint Road has been great,” says Todd Huber, founder of the Skateboarding Hall of Fame. “This is a unique opportunity to not only show support for our non profit Skateboarding Museum, but to own a piece of history as either an NFT or perhaps even a real board taken directly from our exclusive collection.”

“We strive for authenticity and originality in everything we do” says Dana Landry, Co-Founder of Mint Road Limited. “Our plan is to democratize and decentralize the entertainment landscape with upcoming projects to be announced. We thought a perfect partner for our first drop would be one of the most authentic and important organizations in the Hollywood-adjacent but influential world of skateboarding. What Todd has built over the last three decades with the Skateboarding Hall of Fame is one the most inspired and beloved organizations, and we hope that this partnership can further ensure that its longevity is preserved and insured for decades to come”

The “Curator’s Collection” is a special, limited-release of 1,020 NFTs based on the 100 most rare and iconic boards from the museum’s 1990’s/early 2000’s collection. Featuring boards from pro skaters and legends like Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, OG Z-Boy Tony Alva, and Torey Pudwell, as well as celebrities and skate industry personalities and pioneers, each one represents a unique time in our history and has an epic story behind it. With 10 variations of each board available to mint, owning all ten grants collectors ownership rights to the actual physical skateboard. Holders can then choose to cash in the NFTs and receive the actual physical board itself, or keep the NFTs and know that special piece of skateboarding history hanging in the HOF is all yours, and can be claimed at any time, with your name immortalized on a plaque next to it.

The Skateboarding Hall of Fame was created to honor the passion and dedication to skateboarding – and contributions to its history and culture – by pro skateboarders and industry / cultural icons throughout the decades. A majority of all NFT sales will be going directly back into the SHOF to support our mission of preserving and sharing skate culture, design new experiences and upgrades to our indoor skatepark, acquire and preserve historic and rare memorabilia, and continue to give free admission to the public so we can pass on our history to the next generation. Since 2009, the skateboarding community has come together each year in Southern California for an induction ceremony to honor and celebrate the latest inductees.
