Flower pots by Isaac Nichols
Brooklyn, NY
In Greenpoint — just across from McCarren Park on Lorimer — there’s a quiet, nondescript studio space full of wonders. Our friend Cody Hoyt — whose solo show opens tomorrow in the gallery at Ace New York — introduced us to the place, where he and a close-knit crew of ceramicist friends are operating a miniature factory of earthen fineries. 
The work varies wildly, but Hoyt and fellow clay throwers Josephine Heilpern, Rachel Howe, Helen Levi, Isaac Nichols, and Natalie Weinberger are each uniquely firing (rimshot) on all cylinders — some functional and some elegant and some even a little rude. We’ll be keeping an eye on these kids.

New York City
Last month we hosted a little party for the literati in the town that gave us The New York School. Now we want to show you and tell you. 
At the invitation of Ace Hotel New York and Word Bookstore, over a dozen up-and-coming authors crafted short works in the second-person. Each story involves you, and a room. Below was the process for making these collaborative zines. 

You approach the grand study table at Ace Hotel on March 8 2014 and are handed a multi-sided die. Looking up, you notice 200 copies of 16 unique stories. Each page is 5.5” x 8.5”. The stacks are neat. Uniform. As instructed, you roll the die 8 times, each roll adding one work to your collection. You receive your final page. A friendly assistant hand stamps and staples it together. 

We had our turn rolling, adding, binding. If you missed out on the night, you can crib a downloadable PDF of ours here.

The haunting, beautiful La Jetée plays February 28 at the Anthology Film Archives. Chris Marker’s landmark 1962 film tells the story an unnamed man in a time travel experiment who falls in love with a woman he sees on a pier. The film gently flickers across the screen and into your mind as it is made almost entirely of still frames.

Scotty Albrecht’s work is up at the Ace New York gallery this month. Everything In Between showcases his graphic woodworking, painting and hand done typography. Still plenty of time to see it before Jan 31.
