  • Eric Fonteneau, La Bibliothèque

  • Jan 19, 2012 at 6:00am to Feb 11, 2012 at 12:00pm
  • Location: French Institute Alliance Française Gallery
  • Description:

    In La Bibliothèque, contemporary French artist Eric Fonteneau creates a trompe l’oeil library. Thousands of graphite and charcoal rubbings of book bindings, souvenirs copied at libraries during Fonteneau’s travels in Europe and America, line the walls of the site- specific installation. Fonteneau plays with the idea of real versus imagined and memory versus record, while hinting at the impending end of print in our increasingly digital world.

  • Arne Quinze - "My Home, My House, My Stilthouse"

  • Feb 1, 2012 to Mar 31, 2012
  • Location: Chelsea
  • Description:

    The Vicky David Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of the Belgian artist Arne Quinze.


    The gallery will present pieces from the series "My Home, My House, My Stilthouse" which plays on the dichotomy between chaos and equilibrium. From the appearant fragility of his material emerges overflowing energy and pure beauty.  Arne Quinze dreams of an ideal society in which all individuals communicate and interact with each other. Eclectically he uses paintings, drawings, sculptures and monumental installations to develop his work in the urban movement, by focusing on the themes: Order, Disorder, Structure and Habitation.


    Beginning in the early 2000’s, Arne Quinze’s œuvre is the subject of many public and private installations around the world such as ("Uchronia", Nevada, USA; "Timegate", Miami, USA; "Rebirth", Paris, FRANCE; "Red Beacon", Shanghai, CHINA; "Camille", Rouen, FRANCE; "The Sequence", Brussels, BELGIUM; "The Traveller", Munich, GERMANY ; "The Visitor", Beirut, LEBANON).

    CinémaTuesdays in February: Carte Blanche to Agnès b.


    FIAF is thrilled to invite French fashion designer Agnès b. to curate a month-long series of films that have most influenced her life and career as a designer, photographer, and, more recently, as a fashion film producer and director.


    The Crime of Monsieur Lange
    Tuesday, February 7, 2012

    Jean Renoir, 1936. B&W. 80 min.
    With René Lefèvre, Florelle, Jules Berry, Marcel Lévesque
    In French with English subtitles


    After a rogue publisher leaves town with his company’s profits, a writer bands together with his similarly swindled coworkers to seek revenge—first by starting a new publishing house and then by more devious means. A delightful film with an inspired, Capra-esque mix of whimsy and justice.

  • Location: NYC
  • Description:

    The Mice at Play are at it again—crafting a tastefully designed NYC Erotic Scavenger Hunt with you in mind.

    Each Mice at Play event is a collective dare…an opportunity for fun and exploration. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we thought to again explore erotic-themed playgrounds.

    There is a trend in the major big cities of Europe which has finally reached the U.S.—the emergence of venues such as The Museum of Sex, feminine and luxury erotic places that cater to women. Tasteful lingerie, erotic art, sex toys, aphrodisiac foods, exotic sexual practices, and much more are now offered to you in the prettiest settings. As part of our Erotic Marathon, we thought that a mini “city tour” of erotic NY could be educational, liberating and enriching!

    The Mice at Play Erotic NY Scavenger hunt has the purpose to introduce you—in a playful and non-intimidating way—to beautiful, feminine, sensuous venues. For you, it may be either a curious adventure into unknown territoriy or an eye opener to a
