This Memorial Day weekend, the Flatiron NoMad Partnership will host a free Memorial Day-themed historic walking tour on Sunday, May 28. The tour, “From Decoration Day to Memorial Day,” led by historian and author Miriam Berman, will give visitors an insight into the history of Memorial Day in the Flatiron NoMad District.
What Is Psychedelic, co-presented by Mishkin Gallery and Pioneer Works, marks the first institutional survey of New York-born artist Aura Rosenberg. This two-venue exhibition traces the artist’s trajectory from early paintings of the 1970s to her more recent endeavors in photography, film, sculpture, and installation. Throughout her five decades long career in New York and Berlin, Rosenberg has moved through diverse styles, preferring to work thematically and serially while often returning to ideas from past projects. The exhibition also includes several previously unseen works, and Rosenberg’s collaborations with artists like Ei Arakawa, Mary Heilmann, Mike Kelley, Louise Lawler, and Haim Steinbach, all of which chronicle the breadth of her multifaceted career.
On Saturday, March 11th from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM, the Flatiron NoMad Partnership in collaboration with Bombay Sandwich Co., PMT House of Dance, and Aeilushi Mistry will host an inaugural Rangoli Art Celebration. The family-friendly freer public event will feature Rangoli, an art form originating from India where beautiful patterns are created using organic materials, live traditional music, South Asian treats, educational and cultural activities. Participants will have the opportunity to help build a community Rangoli guided by Aeilushi Mistry or a smaller version to take home.
