An extraordinary collection of 1980s-1990s fashion slides found on a New York City sidewalk makes its way back to the Fashion District in a new photographic exhibition 10 Times Square: New York Fashion Rediscovered 1982-1997.

The collection — a true treasure trove containing thousands of 35mm slides — was shot by Japanese photographer Kishimitsu Hada, and meticulously compiled by his mother, the late fashion journalist Yuriko Tomita. After a fire in Tomita’s apartment in 2008, dozens of boxes housing her professional archives ended up on the sidewalk. In a stroke of good luck, set designer Gaetane Bertol passed by and recognized the value of the contents of the boxes, rescued them, and guarded them until she was able to locate the owner. A decade later, curator and fashion historian Ya’ara Keydar worked to create this exhibit of photographs at ZAZ10TS -- a gallery conceived by Tzili Charney in 10 Times Square. Through these fortuitous connections, this exhibition reunites the designers featured in the photographs with their one-time workplace.

In the exhibition includes a special art Installation featuring David Rockwell’s scale model for Kinky Boots, re-imagined by Gaetane.


ZAZ10TS PRESENTS “NATURE OF WONDER” BY SHONY RIVNAY | CURRENT

In order to reach a space where no rules apply, the artist connects to his own essence
while he learns to let go of habitual artistic patterns. This juxtaposition between the known
and the unknown, the habitual and the spontaneous opens up a path towards the essential

PAST EXHIBITIONS

URI KATZENSTEIN: YOU never know

ZAZ10TS and Artis present a joint exhibition, YOU NEVER KNOW, celebrating the artistic contributions of the late Israeli artist Uri Katzenstein.

Uri Katzenstein focused his artistic expression on video projects and installations in the latter stages of his career. Using video allowed him to incorporate other elements from his repertoire such as sculpture, performance art and music. His video pieces, including several in the YOU NEVER KNOW exhibition, were often provocative, violent, profane and purposely confusing. Stories he told though video related to the juxtaposition of opposites such as the real and surreal, humanity and non-human objects, and relationships between disparate concepts and experiences.

Mirroring the complexities and layers of life, Uri Katzenstein’s videos mixed linear storytelling with bursts of images and vignettes. He created videos to raise more questions than answers, shunning obvious clarity.

ZAZ10TS pleased to present Claudia Alvarez: A Moment In Between, a new exhibition by internationally recognized Mexican-American artist, Claudia Alvarez, featuring watercolors and several new pieces showing for the first time, including the “Wading” video and two ceramic sculptures titled “Sitting” and “Untitled.

Claudia Alvarez created “A Moment In Between” to capture a suspended time in our collective consciousness, where we grapple with universal themes like the struggle for power, vulnerability and violence, youth and aging, and even immigration. As with the pieces included in the new exhibition, her work features child bodies with adult faces, posing with adult characteristics. Her use of this convention serves as a means of simplifying the complexities of the world by viewing life experiences from the perspective of a child, focusing attention on elements of human nature evoked by the pieces she has created. Ultimately, the “Claudia Alvarez: A Moment In Between” exhibition is a social reflection on humanity and how we react in a given moment.

MASKIT X EYAL NEVO: MOUNT SODOM

Maskit X Eyal Nevo: Mount Sodom is a large-scale art project between the fabled fashion house and the celebrated Israeli fashion photographer Eyal Nevo. Conceived by former Alexander McQueen designer and current MASKIT artistic director Sharon Tal together with Nevo, Mount Sodom was on view at 10 Times Square in the heart of New York’s fashion district, coinciding with New York Fashion Week from September 6 through October 28, 2018

The exhibition brings together full-color photographs and film from the exceptional collaborative project, photographed and filmed against the dramatic backdrop of Sodom in the Judean desert, and featuring MASKIT’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection The Desert of Sodom against the decadent beauty of the ancient land.

Maskit X Eyal Nevo: Mount Sodom organized by Tzili Charney as part of ZAZ10TS.

Sara Berman: Between Community and Commerce Exhibition: An exhibition of lint on canvas works by London-based artist Sara Berman (b.1975) opened July 11 and was on view through September 2018. The exhibition presents works that explore Berman’s interest in repetition, textiles and patterning, in addition to her deeply held curiosity in social and cultural signifiers, in this case the intimacy of the body in a world of consumption and commerce.

In collaborating with ZAZ10TS Berman seeks to highlight the communal aspect of this new body of work. The use of the lobby at 10 Times Square—a public space which leads through the center of New York to the Fashion District, the home of so many globalized manufacturing decision makers—is for Berman a fitting showcase for a work which centers on the intimacy of the body in a world of mass consumption and commerce.

SARA BERMAN: Between Community and Commerce is curated by Tamar Dresdner and organized by Tzili Charney as part of ZAZ10TS.
