Friday Fête: Todd Snyder, Rubber Factory, and the Tang Museum

By Rylie Cooke

February 2, 2018

For our weekly Friday Fête feature, here are some of the week’s top events, openings, and launches.

On Monday, January 29, the Tang Teaching Museum hosted a discussion panel as part of its Accelerator Series, a dynamic conversation series with cultural influencers on critical issues and positive change. The Museum’s curator Isolde Brielmaier presided over a discussion between Kimberly Drew, a writer, curator, activist and social media manager at The Met; Natalie Frank, an artist whose works address the female body and desires; and Amy Richards, an activist, writer, producer co-founder of Third Wave Foundation.

On Wednesday, Lucien Smith opened the exhibition titled “Group Show”—a project under Lucien’s non-profit organization Serving The People. The show is on view through this Saturday, February 3, open today until 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Yesterday morning, the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey hosted a media preview of their spring special exhibition “Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist.” The show surveys the career of one of today’s most accomplished Native American artists. The touring retrospective is the first in her career, featuring more than 60 of her most notable works. The exhibition will run through June 17.

Last night at Todd Snyder in New York, we celebrated the brand’s newest addition—The Kin Room Hair Studio. Walking in, we were greeted with cocktails by Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey and Sipsmith Gin, and had a meet and greet with the hair studio’s lead stylists, Robin Capili and Jamie Lynn (alums of Sally Hersberger). We said hello to Snyder himself, as he took a break from fitting models for his upcoming fashion show, and enjoyed lively music and delicious canapés by El Rey Annex. The salon, designed like a modern speakeasy, has an intimate and quaint vibe to it, complemented with one-of-a-kind photographs by Mark Lakin. A part of his “Icons” collection, Lakin’s photographs of celebrities like Lady Gaga and Jay-Z elevate the space, while guests can enjoy, starting today, cuts and styles on Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Also on Thursday, Coates and Scarry (opens in partnership with Gallery 8 London as Faction Art Projects in Harlem) “All That You Have Is Your Soul,” curated by Armando Mariño and Meyken Barreto. This new gallery space acts as a platform for exploring Cuban art through exploration of the artist and their personal experiences. Participating artist Marc Dennis describes the exhibition as an interpretation of foreign identities, saying, “In my case, as is the case evidently with many of the artists in the show, is of Cuban identity. My father was born and raised in Havana in an orthodox Jewish community. He is known as a Jewban, or Jewbano. My mother is from Boston. It was like growing up with Lucy and Ricky!”

Rubber Factory’s solo exhibition with Patricia Voulgaris opens. Voulgaris’s work centers on the female body and its relationship to space. Using her own body as a canvas for photographic portraiture, her interesting lines, forms and dimension subvert formalism and traditional photography. The beautiful black and white compositions play with the seductive surface of the photographic medium.
