  • A Season of Love and French Art at Agora Gallery this February

  • Feb 10, 2015 at 6:00am to Mar 3, 2015 at 1:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The original work of five French artists Chantal Le Brun, Galý, Georges Castille, Véronique Coen and Wallace will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC.

    About Chantal Le Brun

    Photographer Chantal Le Brun takes inspiration from her travels, seeking to capture the unsuspecting landscapes as they reveal themselves, as well as shifting cultural identities. Le Brun describes traveling as a positive reaction to the trials and tribulations of life, a way to put things in perspective as well as escape from personal troubles. Subtly, these photographs reflect this: they are full of the meandering lines of a traveler forging new paths, the details of daily life that carry an exotic air for the weary traveler, and the indistinct reflections of what one has left behind.

    About Galý

    French artist Galý revels in the tactility and creaminess of oil paint. Interested in communicating the universal symptoms of the human condition in schematic vignettes of sorts, Galý takes bare hands and palette knife to canv

  • Location: Lincoln Plaza Cinemas
  • Description:

    Music Box Films is proud to announce the release of GETT: THE TRIAL OF VIVIANE AMSALEM, the riveting, multiple award-winning drama from sibling directors and writers Shlomi and Ronit Elkabetz about an Israeli woman seeking to finalize her divorce (“gett”), and who finds herself put on trial by her country’s religious marriage laws.  This French co-production is scheduled to open on February 13 in New York (Lincoln Plaza Cinema) and Los Angeles (Royal) followed by a national roll out.

    In Israel there is neither civil marriage nor civil divorce; only Orthodox rabbis can legalize a marriage or its dissolution, which is only possible with the husband’s full consent.  Viviane Amsalem (Ronit Elkabetz) has been applying for a divorce for three years, but her religiously devout husband Elisha (Simon Abkarian, Casino Royale, Persepolis) continually refuses.  His cold intransigence, Viviane’s determination to fight for her freedom, and the ambiguous role of the rabbinical judges shape a procedure

  • Project 13: Ghass Rouzkhosh / a Solo Exhibition

  • Feb 13, 2015 at 6:00am to Mar 3, 2015 at 1:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    Born in Shiraz, Iran in 1964, Ghass Rouzkhosh was 15 years old when the Islamic revolution began. A year later, Iraq invaded, sparking a conflict that would last for eight years - making it the longest conventional war of the 20th century. For a young man, the war was unavoidable.  Rouzkhosh spent two years as a soldier on the front-line, fighting Saddam Hussein’s forces.  After his part in the conflict, Rouzkhosh left for Paris, where he hoped to exorcise the images of war that had pervaded so much of his early life.  


    Feelings of rage and memories of blood and violence lingered, but Rouzkhosh sought to master the negative aspects of his history and transform them into something therapeutic for himself and the general public. Painting became his primary mode of self-expression. For nineteen years, Rouzkhosh limited his palette to three distinct colors. Red was chosen to reflect the sky after a bombing, black in memory of burnt nature, and white as a traditional symbol of peace and inn

    An original member of the Pattern and Decoration movement, applied and decorative art practices are often the basis for Kozloff’s large-scale public and fine art works. Since the 1990s, she has been using maps and globes to explore issues of social and institutional injustice.
