FEATURED ARTIST The work of Naho Kubota
Naho Kubota, new work
"The project "Minimum Structure" started three years ago as a photo
collection of strangely appealing machinery parts and landscapes. My
interest lies not in the functionality of these structures, but rather in
the structures themselves. With a little exploration, we can always find a
hint of nonsensical abstraction hiding in our everyday life. Excluding the
subjects from their original purpose creates an image that is imaginatively isolated from reality."
Kubota received her BFA in 2007 from the School of Visual Arts in NY.
In addition, she has worked with magazines in New York, London and
Toyko in order to develop her unique vision. Kubota is also one of the
2009 KiptonART Rising Artists. To learn more about Naho Kubota and enjoy her featured work, Read more here...
A One-Note Show by Alexander Sudalnik
First Milan, then Paris, the Men's Spring 2010 shows have come to a close.
Menswear is starting to loosen up this coming spring; baggy trousers,
harem and drop-crotched pants and drapery knits are all important
trends for spring. There were over 60 menswear shows for Spring 2010,
and below are my top four picks. The favored designers displayed
innovative points-of-view and stood out among this strangely
homogenized season. Read more here...

Creative Time's PLOT/09 Beckons Art Zealots to Governor's Island
Creative Time has just given New Yorkers their finest gift of the summer with this exhibition on Governor's Island, a 172-acre island smack in the middle of New York Harbor that is now the site for one of the most mesmerizing art installations seen in recent years, if ever. The 19 artists included in this exhibition responded to the island's historical sites... and their art is everywhere: tucked inside the fort, hidden inside empty buildings and outside on the lawn. And everything is free. Come early by ferry and spend the entire day. Bring your bike or get one on the island, pack a picnic and bring all of your friends, but whatever you do, do NOT miss this! Favorites include work by Anthony McCall, Edgar Arceneaux, Bruce High Quality Foundation, Judi Werthein and Krzysztof Wodiczko. Go to the yellow visitors center to pick up a map and guide from Creative Time (follow the brick path to the left once you disembark from the ferry and follow the signs) and begin the hunt.

|Jeff Scher's Animated Life: 'The Parade'
Jeff Scher, an artist and friend of KiptonART, was recently featured in
the New York times for his short film, 'The Parade'. Scher is "a
painter who makes experimental films and an experimental filmmaker who
paints". He has been included in many group shows around New York and
currently teaches graduate courses at the School of Visual Arts and at
NYU Tisch School of the Arts Kanbar Institute of Film &
Television's Animation program. Below is a exert from the New York
