Exhibition Opening at Mishkin Gallery: The Brotherhood of New Blockheads

The Mishkin Gallery presents The Brotherhood of New Blockheads (1996–2002), the first exhibition in the United States to feature the historic performance-based work of the New Blockheads, a collective of critical young artists active in Saint Petersburg, Russia, after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Between 1996 and 2002, the New Blockheads—Vadim Flyagin, Oleg Khvostov, Vladimir Kozin, Alexander Lyashko, Inga Nagel, Igor Panin, Maxim Rayskin, Sergey Spirikhin—made their mark with incredible energy and creative productivity. More than 100 actions and performances were made across galleries, in the streets, and in the privacy of individual homes.

The exhibition will also be a part of the Performa 19 Biennial Consortium, a New York-based network of arts and cultural institutions producing, supporting, and disseminating performance-based artistic productions and programs in partnership with Performa 19.

Gallery Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 am to 6 pm, and Thursday from 11 am to 7 pm

Prototype Festival: Blood Moon Presented by the Baruch Performing Arts Center

In this taut, poetic, opera-theatre work, three characters reckon with the past on the night of a full moon: a nephew who returns to the mountain-top where he left his aunt to die forty years earlier, the ghost of the aunt he abandoned, and the moon that presides over this night of reckoning. Choreography, puppetry and a taiko-infused score collide in this story of joy, regret, and atonement. Inspired by a Noh play, Composed by Garrett Fisher (“A strong, unified and strikingly individual utterance of unambiguous beauty.” – The New York Times), libretto by Ellen McLaughlin, and directed by Rachel Dickstein.

Produced and commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects, co-presented by PROTOTYPE and BPAC in promotional partnership with Japan Society.
