Today at Summerstage: Zuzu Screening and Live Performance by AfroRaggae

the real designer, Zuzu Angel with one of her models

Sunday, August 05, 2007
From 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Central Park SummerStage

AfroReggae was formed in 1995 in the favela shanty-towns of Rio de Janeiro. Fusing many elements of Brazilian and international music past and present—including mangue beat, rap, samba-reggae, funk, raga, xaxado beats, drum ‘n’ bass, capoeira and candomblé—the 13 member group has established itself as one of Brazil’s most passionate and creative bands. AfroReggae has collaborated with artists like Arnaldo Antunes, Nando Reis and Caetano Veloso, and opened for the Rolling Stones at a 2006 Copacabana Beach concert for a crowd of over 2 million people.

AfroReggae’s performance will precede a screening of director Sergio Resende’s 2006 film Zuzu Angel, which tells the true story of a famous Brazilian fashion designer of the ‘70s, and her political awakening after the military regime kills her son.

Dear Pin Up Girls

above: a series of pinup girls portrays the modern woman in a classic pinup setting by Lady Eyecon

s.u.n.Arts presents:
The 2nd Annual
"Dear Pin-Up Girls"
group show

Opening Thursday, August 9, 7pm-midnight
Laila Lounge, 113 N. 7th Street, Williamsburg
$5 suggested donation

"Dear Pin-Up Girls" is the second annual fundraiser for the New York Foundation for the Arts to benefit s.u.n.Arts shows and help support the emerging artists community in New York City, and is curated by "Mouse" D. Balingit.

"Dear Pin-Up Girls" will be a subcultural mash-up of vaudeville-style performers with artists' renderings and interpretations of pin-up girls. As last year, the event will be a showcase of all-female contemporary street artists, painters, and photographers working with the subject of alternative pin-up style. Complimenting the artwork will be burlesque acts live on stage, including Scooter Pie, Tali, and Amber Star + friends.

Joining the burlesque, urban, graffiti, and rock scenes, "Dear Pin-Up Girls" will feature the artists Toofly, Erotica 67, Lady K Fever, Jen One, Lady Eyecon, Muck One, ACET, Esther Sanchez, G Piedmonte, Martina Secondo Russo, Blair Bauer, MadgeOne, Shiro, and Alice Mizrachi. Two DJs, Laura Rebel Angel and Onerios One, will be trading off to spin a diverse and eclectic selection of music between stage acts, while dressed in vintage pin-up attire.

An outdoor grill will be serving up hot (and soy) dogs, and free giveaways will be available throughout the evening.

Just two in a big lineup:

Esther Sanchez , originally from Ontario-Canada, began a decade ago showing her artwork in various venues throughout Toronto , while freelancing as an illustrator. Her art will lure the viewer into her pretty world of stylish women that are beautifully created in rich, bold colors and eye-catching patterns. Each of her ladies has a unique look and attitude, inspired by fashion, music, nature, anime, comic books, toys and 60's prints. This ultra-feminine style has led her to creative design work, painting commissions and art shows. She is currently collaborating with a number of fashion designers and planning to produce art events. Her pins and line of tote bags have been featured in the New York Post and Time Out New York.

SHIRO is a graffiti artist from Japan. She began painting in 1998 in Shizuoka, Japan. Shiro's colorful artwork is a reflection of her love for true hip-hop. Over the years she has been touched by the essence & soul of hip-hop culture and old school graffiti styles. She has performed in various live painting events, participated in gallery art shows and been a part of graffiti crew gatherings in both New York and Japan. In addition to her murals, she has worked on canvases, illustrations, and has designed and produced original theater stage decorations. All of these things combine to create a unique individual with a talented gift for creative expression. Her own characters are just like a virtual side of herself.
