JR and Jose Parla

Artists JR and Jose Parla have made a collaborative exhibit that is like art within art within art at the Bryce Wolkowitz gallery in Manhattan.  Entitled “The Wrinkles of the City, Havana,” Parla and JR each created art and the exhibit shows off large scale photos of their collaborative efforts.

JR and Jose Parla

JR and Jose Parla

JR put up massive black and white portraits of ordinary people in Cuba who lived through the Cuban revolution and then Jose Parla added his calligraphic writings and color to the outdoor murals.  A documentary shown at the gallery accompanies these art works and it really provides context when watching interviews with some of these elderly folks who are at times both baffled and flattered by these works.

You can always count on the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York for a colorful and mind-bending art exhibit.  In their current show “Vectors” by Ben Rubin, prepare to take your senses on a trip.  I recommend seeing this exhibit in person as the photos don’t account for the moving images you’ll see in each work of art.

In this next photo of a work of art entitled “Anecdotal History #1,” Ben Rubin�projects cables published by Wikileaks onto a manual typewriter.  It’s really cool!

Anecdotal History #1 by Ben Rubin

Vectors by Ben Rubin is showing at Bryce Wolkowitz in New York through February 18, 2011.  The gallery is located at 504 West 24th Street.
