  • Oct 10, 2014 at 7:00am to Oct 30, 2014 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The original work of three French artists Joëlle Kem Lika, Thomas Raoult and Val d’Off will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC.

    About Joëlle Kem Lika

    French artist Joëlle Kem Lika takes her inspiration from nature, especially flowers and seascapes, though she turns such imagery into virtually Abstract Expressionist compositions bursting with gestural swaths of bold colors and brilliant plays of light. She cites the importance of the Buddhist concept of the "Pulse of Life" in her practice and, indeed, her works positively pulse with energy, whether in fiery and explosive canvases dominated by reds and yellows, or the evocative blues and greens of her water scenes and skyscapes.

    Working quickly and vigorously, Kem Lika applies her saturated acrylic paints in layers, so that subtle shadings and contrasting tones emerge beneath the bold, dominant hues. The thick brushstrokes give momentum and direction to the most abstract pieces, while also lending a textured, practically sculptural element

  • Volker Schlöndorff's DIPLOMACY: Opening at Film Forum on October 15th

  • Oct 14, 2014 to Oct 28, 2014
  • Location: Film Forum
  • Description:

    This French-German co-production was already a huge success in France, and it is set in Paris on a fateful night during World War II. It tells the story of two men in a diplomatic cat and mouse game that may determine whether a Nazi plot will destroy the City of Light.

    The film shows Paris in all its extraordinary beauty and evokes a powerful sense of what might have been lost. It's a must-see film for Francophiles and French-Americans.

    Rialto Pictures is proud to announce the restoration and re-release of the late Alain Resnais’ seminal debut film HIROSHIMA MON AMOUR, which will be released theatrically in the U.S. for the first time in decades on Friday, October 17 in New York and Los Angeles following its premiere at the 2014 New York Film Festival. A pillar of the French New Wave, long unavailable for exhibition in the United States due to rights issues, it will be released nationally in a spectacular new 4K restoration.  

    Employing a radical use of voice-over narration and quickly-flashbacked scenes, Hiroshima Mon Amour tells the story of a brief relationship in post-war Japan between a French actress, played by Oscar nominee Emmanuelle Riva (Amour), and a Japanese architect, played by Eiji Okada (Woman in the Dunes).

    The Oscar-nominated screenplay was written by Marguerite Duras, who in novels like The Lover, often dealt with European/Asian relationships. 2014 marks Duras’ centennial and she will be honored w

    Chiara Mulas: born 1972 in Gavoi, Sardinia. A graduate of Bologna’s Academy of Fine Arts, she lives and works between France and Sardinia. In her multi-media work, Mulas uses a range of approaches: tableaux vivants, videos, photography, and live actions that create distinctive bonds between areas of, among others, social protest and ancestral myths. At the crossroads of cinéma vérité & fiction, the oneiric dimensions of Mulas’ work relate to societal tragedies. Her work  has been shown & performed across three continents (Quebec, China, Japan, United States, Lebanon, Morocco, Serbia, Israel, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, France).

    Choreography by Benjamin Millepied, Justin Peck, and William Forsythe 
    Featuring a special appearance by eighth blackbird

    Founded as a collective two years ago by newly appointed Paris Opera Ballet director and former New York City Ballet principal Benjamin Millepied[1]—along with composer Nico Muhly, founding producer Charles Fabius, and others—the ambitious L.A. Dance Project has already turned heads with its fresh, contemporary vision of dance and stylistically diverse repertory.

    For its much-anticipated New York debut, the company presents three pieces: Millepied’s ownReflections, an elegant series of pas de deux and group dances, set against bold graphics by Barbara Kruger and scored by David Lang; rising choreographer and New York City Ballet dancer Justin Peck’s Murder Ballades[2], a vivacious work in the spirit of Jerome Robbins, with a visual concept by artist Sterling Ruby and music by Bryce Dessner, performed live by eighth blackbird; and William Forsythe’s Quintett, a tender,
