New York-NY—ZAZ10TS, an ongoing cultural initiative that integrates art into the office building, façade and exterior at 10 Times Square in New York City (1441 Broadway), is pleased to announce the one-year anniversary of its launch. Since December 2017, ZAZ10TS has continually transformed its iconic Garment District building into an art-filled space for building tenants and visitors as well as the broader public to enjoy. In so doing, ZAZ10TS has worked with more than 50 new and established artists presented through curated exhibitions, and via projects in partnership with local, national and international organizations.

To date, ZAZ10TS has presented four new exhibitions showcasing a vibrant mix of sculpture, video, paintings, textiles, watercolors, fashion, photography and digital art. Each exhibition opened with a public reception with the featured artist, and remained on display in and around the building for approximately three months. ZAZ10TS also features several permanent artworks in its 10 Times Square building, and a permanent feature installation in its 1410 Broadway office building.

  • Claudia Alvarez: A Moment In Between by Claudia Alvarez, a Mexican-American artist who emigrated from Mexico as a toddler, grew up in Northern California, and lives, works and teaches in New York City (video, sculpture, watercolor, textiles)

  • Maskit X Eyal Nevo: Mount Sodom, a collaboration between Maskit, a storied Israeli fashion house led by artistic director Sharon Tal, and well-known Israeli fashion photographer Eyal Nevo (photography, video)

  • Between Community and Commerce by Sara Berman, a former fashion designer turned artist who lives and works in London (textiles, lint on canvas)

  • Untitled by Lore Riess, who was born in Berlin and lived in Japan for nearly three decades before moving to New York City (painted fabric)

Tzili Charney, founder and president of ZAZ10TS, and principle curator of its exhibitions, remarked that “Art brings people together. Just as it can transform a space, engaging with art can transform perspectives and connect people through a shared experience. We created ZAZ10TS to celebrate that spirit of community through art.”

Along with its signature exhibitions, ZAZ10TS has collaborated on several projects such as the annual Garment District Arts Festival, in partnership with the Garment District Alliance; Rapture of the Deep at the Textile Art Center in Brooklyn, New York, in partnership with curator and fashion historian Ya’ara Keydar; and My Love Answer, a multi-faceted portrait of humanity made from footage of scenes prior to terrorist attacks around the world, in partnership with the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague.

Additional collaborative projects include Print Into Motion with the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies based at Columbia University; sponsorship of From Anne Frank - The Graphic Diary adapted by Ari Folman and David Polonsky, in partnership with the Dwek Gallery, Mishkenot Sha'ananim based in Jerusalem; and ZAZ10TS’ first project, 24:7, a video installation of digital media created by artists from around the world that was dually exhibited in New York City and Jerusalem, also in collaboration with the Dwek Gallery.

Diversity of media and the artists behind the innovative works is a hallmark of ZAZ10TS’ vision to celebrate art as an accessible, everyday experience. Artwork featured in its inaugural year represented this breadth and depth of expression. Thus, in celebration of the one-year milestone, ZAZ10TS released a commemorative video of artist interviews from the 24:7 project.

“The positive response to our first year in operation has been wonderful and gratifying,” said Limei Wang, director of ZAZ10TS. “Art is a universal connector and it’s been exciting to see the impact on our community.”

ZAZ10TS offers free entry to the lobby of its 10 Times Square building, which is open to the public Monday to Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. EST. Visitors can experience external art pieces at all times on the façade and in outside spaces.

 ZAZ10TS TO PRESENT FIRST SHOWING OF NEW ARTWORK FROM ACCLAIMED ARTIST CLAUDIA ALVAREZ
CURATED BY TZILI CHARNEY

NEW YORK–NY— ZAZ10TS, an ongoing cultural initiative that integrates art into the office building at 10 Times Square in New York City (1441 Broadway), is 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.” Tzili Charney, founder of ZAZ10TS, curated the exhibition that will run from Thursday, November 1, 2018 to Monday, January 28, 2019 at ZAZ10TS’ 10 Times Square office building located at 1441 Broadway in New York City.

 ZAZ10TS will host an opening reception for the “Claudia Alvarez: A Moment In Between,” exhibition on Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the lobby of its 10 Times Square property. The reception is open to members of the media, as well as building tenants, visitors and the broader public. During the reception, Claudia Alvarez will be available to discuss the exhibition, from individual pieces to the inspiration behind her work, with Tzili Charney on hand to discuss the curatorial process.

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.

 “Those lucky enough to experience Claudia’s art are immediately drawn to the power imbued in her sculptures, and in her paintings and video,” said Tzili Charney, founder of ZAZ10TS and curator of the exhibition. “She’s able to isolate moments before and after an action takes place – and use that artistic space to explore possibility, innocence and how they manifest in humanity. We’re excited to present the world premiere of Claudia’s work to ZAZ10TS’ community, and to a growing number of local and global visitors.”

The new exhibition will feature several pieces, including the inaugural presentation of the three new artworks created by Claudia Alvarez:

  • The “Untitled” sculpture shows a girl sitting on a stool, with her eyes closed, immersed in her own thoughts. Her body is washed with porcelain.

  • The “Sitting” sculpture sits on the floor and depicts a young girl with eyes painted black, looking off to some undefined object or moment. Her body is brushed with porcelain, and the small scale speaks to collective memory and vulnerabilities.

  • The “Wading” video explores the potential of sculpture outside a gallery space and invites viewers to mediate between time and space.

ZAZ10TS incorporated an earlier sculpture from Claudia Alvarez as part of the permanent, built-in art collection at its 10 Times Square office building. “Boxing Girl,” an oil on bronze sculpture, debuted in the lobby of the building in December 2017 and shows a young girl in a boxing stance, wearing red gloves, in a state of readiness.

“As I’m working, in the back of my mind is the notion that people will interact with one of my pieces and bring their own personal experience into the work,” said Claudia Alvarez, featured artist in ZAZ10TS’ “Claudia Alvarez: A Moment In Between” exhibition. “With the sculptures, I focused on the metaphor of movement and texture; with the watercolors, I reimagined familiar tropes; and with the video, I sought to connect art with real-life surroundings. Together, these pieces represent glimpses of our shared humanity and I’m forever grateful to Tzili Charney and ZAZ10TS for allowing me to showcase my work in this new exhibition.”

PRESS RELEASE: FROM ALEXANDER MCQUEEN’S TO THE DEAD SEA, MASKIT x EYAL NEVO: MOUNT SODOM

 ZAZ10TS presents the US premier of the large-scale collaboration between Israel’s first fashion house and celebrated Israeli photographer

Lot’s wife.jpg

September 6 – October 16, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 6, 6-8 PM

NEW YORK–NY—ZAZ10TS is delighted to present MASKIT IN COLLABORATION WITH EYAL NEVO: MOUNT SODOM 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 will be on view from September 6 through October 16, 2018 in the new lobby space at 1441 Broadway in the heart of New York’s fashion district, coinciding with New York Fashion Week.

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.

The 6-minute video features the Inbal Dance Theater—Israel’s first contemporary dance company, choreographed by Mor Shani and produced and directed exclusively by Eyal Nevo for MASKIT.

Mount Sodom is inspired by the myths of the ancient city of Sodom and the contradictions of a land that at once both attracts and repels with the silence and violence of the its landscape, magical presence of biblical history and forceful aesthetics of industrialization.

The exhibition speaks to MASKIT’s conscious self-renewal alongside utmost respect for its history and tradition, bringing contemporary shapes and textures into the landscape while honoring the promise, magic and mythology of the ancient land. As head designer Sharon Tal recounts: “Discussions about the ancient story of Sodom provoked emotions and images of once-magnificent landscapes, now degraded by industrialization. Together with 35 artists in all, we created a new and thought-provoking work that merges fashion and art.”

“This piece of nature, located at the lowest point in the world, is unique,” Eyal Nevo explains. “Sodom’s past and its current situation ignited my imagination in the inner journey I undertook together with Maskit, a firm which also has an iconic symbolism for Israel.”

MASKIT
Maskit is a luxury fashion house with a unique origin. Conceived in 1954 by Ruth Dayan, Maskit made contemporary luxury clothing utilizing traditional embroidery. Maskit designs came to be treasured by leading ladies such as Audrey Hepburn and collaborations with Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and Givenchy followed, as did a flagship store in New York City. Bergdorf, Neiman Marcus, Saks – all carried the brand and admired their vision.

Sharon Tal and her life partner Nir Tal collaborated with Ruth Dayan, and Lynn and Stef Wertheimer to relaunch the brand in 2013. Formerly under Alexander McQueen and working directly under Alber Elbaz at Lanvin prior, Sharon took the helm of MASKIT in 2014, with blessing and input from Ms. Dayan. Together, they have launched several successful collections and shown internationally, honoring and innovating, revitalizing a brand while earning plaudits for their striking designs.

EYAL NEVO
Eyal Nevo lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel, and is one of the country’s leading fashion photographers, best-known for both his editorial and brand work. His work has appeared in Condé Nast Traveler, ELLE, Marie Claire among others. Nevo has created successful campaigns for major Israeli brands and collaborates closely with top Israeli model Bar Rafaeli, shooting most of her Israeli campaigns and editorials. He continues to expand his portfolio to direct and shoot commercials and film, bringing his unique cinematic vision and fine art aesthetic into the fashion world.

MASKIT x EYAL NEVO: MOUNT SODOM is organized by Tzili Charney as part of ZAZ10TS.

Press Release: SARA BERMAN: BETWEEN COMMUNITY AND COMMERCE

Curated by Tamar Dresdner | July 11 - September 4, 2018 | Opening Reception: Wednesday, July 11, 6-8 PM

NEW YORK–NY—ZAZ10TS is pleased to present an exhibition of lint on canvas works by London-based artist Sara Berman (b.1975) opening July 11 and on view through September 2018 in the new lobby space at 10 Times Square (aka 1441 Broadway). Titled Between Community and Commerce, 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.

Berman, formerly a fashion designer, holds a strong affinity for fabrics, matter and clothing. Her interest in lint as a medium began after an experiment with denim caused her domestic dryer to break, leaving her with a large handful of blue lint which subsequently caught her imagination. She began to ask friends and fellow students to bring her their lint, and each day, would be handed a ball of their “personal detritus”. Caught by the intimacy of this “byproduct of cleanliness” and by the body memory inherent in it, Berman was led to further experimentations at a local London dry cleaners with large industrial machines. There, a pattern emerged of the larger machines wielding sizeable unbroken swathes of lint, which appeared to present consistently to the artist in the form of a one-dimensional sweater.  

As Berman states “this ready-made was fascinating to me. Not least because each lint was the result of multiple drying cycles…of numerous people, and the textile fibers were the result of a number of different garments, made in various places around the world. In essence, what started as the collection of fluff from the bodies of people I know had become an ironic ready-made of a garment consisting of the waste from the bodies of many people stretching across the globe. The ritualistic cleanliness of my immediate environment was essentially remaking itself into a global expression of commerce, community and abject beauty.”

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.

About the artist
Sara Berman (b.1975) lives and works in London; she completed her MFA at Slade School of Art, UCL in June 2016 where she was awarded a distinction and the Audrey Wykeham prize for painting. Previously Berman worked as a fashion designer and consultant. After studying fashion design at Central Saint Martins, she founded her eponymous fashion brand and worked as a design consultant to a variety of fashion and design companies. A long and deeply held interest in the conversation between design, commerce and identity informs her artistic practice. She has most recently exhibited at Sapar Contemporary, New York (2017); Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, London (2017); Galerie Huit, Hong Kong (2017), and Gallery 46, London (2016).

Between Community and Commerce follows the artist’s upcoming Summer 2018 at Anat Ebgi Gallery, Los Angeles.
