Tales of Two Camerons

“Near, far, wherever you are…”. These lyrics from Celine Dion’s theme song for the 1997 blockbuster Titanic— are forever etched in the minds of millennial teens turned on by tragic lovers Jack and Rose. Any enthusiasts of this watery James Cameron film will no doubt appreciate avant-garde comedy artist Dynasty Handbag’s take on the iceberg drama – co-crafted with video artist SUE-C – which will be unveiled this week at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn (titanic depression, May 20-21). Dynasty, the alter ego of artist Jibz Cameron, promises us a multimedia buffet by telling us: “I play all the characters. Some of them are cartoons. Billy Zane’s character is a blue dildo named Dick Assinhole. Dynasty, there is only one thing to say: draw me like one of your Frenchwomen.

Concept art titan Matthew Barney is having a moment. Entertainment company Metrograph shows its Cremaster Cycle series (1994-2002) at his Lower East Side theater through June. But the event that makes her talk in the art world is her new work Secondary (2023), a five-channel video installation reflecting the “complex layering of violence and spectacle inherent in American football”, as its website puts it, focusing particularly on a 1978 incident – with some contemporary parallels – that left England Patriots’ Darryl Stingley paralyzed after colliding with Oakland Raiders’ Jack Tatum.

Lemonade stands are as American as apple pie and Abe Lincoln’s beard, giving kids the opportunity to sell their best citrus-flavored drink while internalizing American values ​​of free enterprise and unfettered capitalism. A ‘lemonade stand’ that will sell art, not juice, at New York’s Nada Fair (May 18-21), is courtesy of the Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA), which came up with the idea great to sell art created by children in New York. All proceeds from sales go to the CMA’s Arts Education Emergency Fund, an initiative in response to Ministry of Education budget cuts. Prepare your wallets.
