Art and Resilience in the Rockaways

For more photos and videos of the Rockaway! show, follow @klausbiesenbach on Instagram and explore the #rockaway1 hashtag.

At the forefront of ongoing Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts near some of the best beaches in New York City, the art festival Rockaway! is underway until September 1. Curated by Klaus Biesenbach (@klausbiesenbach), the show features works by artists including Adrián Villar Rojas, Patti Smith and Janet Cardiff installed in settings as various as a former automotive warehouse, a military chapel and even the beach itself. “One minute you’re digging your toes in the sand,” Instagrammer Oscar Diaz (@oscmdiaz) says of the show. “The next thing you know, you’re reading Walt Whitman’s poetry engraved on large granite stones.”

Pari Ehsan (@paridust), whose photos combine fashion and art also visited the Rockaways to see the show. “What really struck me is Klaus’s description of the inspiration behind Patti Smith’s The Resilience of the Dreamer,” she says. “After seeing an overwhelming heap of mattresses waiting to be discarded after Hurricane Sandy, the idea of this delicate gilded four-poster bed juxtaposed against a raw dilapidated space is a beautiful symbol of fragility and resilience.”

Dancing Your Heart Out at @momaps1

For more of photos and videos of MoMA PS1’s Warm Up series, follow @momaps1 on Instagram and browse the #warmup2014 hashtag.

A visit to MoMA PS1 (@momaps1) in Queens, New York on a Saturday this summer might involve world-class art as well as dancing, oysters and piñatas. “Warm Up is MoMA PS1’s summer-long outdoor experimental music series,” Margaret Knowles (@margie__k), its producer, says. “Visitors who come for their favorite DJs can watch them spin against a stage set created by an emerging design firm alongside an installation by our Young Architects Program; those who come to see an exhibition or sample M. Wells’s take on a lobster roll can dance their hearts out.”

Confetti System (@confettisystem) is one of the design firms featured at this year’s Warm Up. “As artists and designers,” they say, “it is rare to be offered such an open platform within the context of a museum.”
