AFTERPARTY: The Rothko Studio is a site-specific, promenade performance in and around the former studio of legendary painter Mark Rothko. Built in 1884 for the YMCA as the Young Men’s Institute, 222 Bowery is best known for the many now-famous artists who lived, worked, and played in this landmarked gem. The building’s former gymnasium is where Rothko created the infamous “Seagram Murals” commissioned by The Four Seasons restaurant in 1957. AFTERPARTY explores this pivotal moment for downtown artists and offers a rare opportunity to visit this historic studio space.

New York City always has remarkable places to ‘discover’. ‘The Secret Loft’ is one of those special places. Performances of poetry, music, circus arts and more can be found here. If you know where to go. It is a ‘secret’. Here is Co-Owner Alex Newhausen talking about the space.

The OPENING of the PS122 building after years of renovation proved to be worth the wait!
The two new spaces – Derek Lloyd stage and Neilma Sidney Theatre – were utilized for the OPENING NIGHT ‘Avant-Garde-Arama.’

My work explores the connection between places and internal solitude. While capturing these select images, I found myself reflecting upon ideas, plans, and dreams while suddenly realizing I was solo within the cultural landscape minus its inhabitants. I intend to take the viewer to this quiet place of contemplation where the textures, shapes, and light provide a heightened sensation of the solo perspective. From the hush in the light drenched hall of the Louvre in Paris or gritty ancient feel of the Italian hills of Matera, I hope to expose the details of solitude that might be missed ina crowded metropolis.
