Join me tonight for the opening of Heart Of The City.
For my first stab at curating a photography show I decided to bring together some friends that inspire me with a selection of street culture, architecture, and unique moments ranging from the 1970's to present. As you might of guessed, all the images are black and white with a focus on composition, lighting, and shadows.  Special thanks to @honestframes + @adoramapix + @michael_shain + @porchlightbar + all the amazing artists in the show. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight.

While the completed works of art are beautiful, nothing excites me more than the process of how they are created. The planning for this project has been in the works for over a year and we finally get to celebrate tonight. I would like to thank the 12 artists that I invited to the project as well as the other curators, artists, and individuals who made this project possible. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!
We were presented this raw space to be used as a showcase for the artists and their work, which they created at their own expense. Due to the highly competitive nature of the art world, this practice has become increasingly common as artists search for that new connection which brings them their next paid gig or commission. That being said, it's immensely satisfying to know that some of the artists I invited have already directly benefited from this project.

For those of you who can't attend tonight's opening, I will be giving tours that are open to everyone while we still have access to the space. Looking specifically for teachers who want to bring their students to see the exhibition as we work to inspire future generations of artists and creatives. Also, looking for art collectors who are interested in learning more about the artists and setting up studio visits for private commissions. Lastly, looking for businesses that are interested in commissioning these types of installations in their office spaces. Still looking for additional press and influencers to spread the word of the project as well. If you know someone that falls into one of these categories, please tag them in this post or email me at tower4arts (@) gmail.com for more information or to register for a tour. Thank you - Josh

REACH FOR THE MOON

My favorite memory from my time is Rio came while visiting @casaamarelaprovidencia , a cultural center that @JR opened in 2009. One year after his iconic "Woman are Heroes" project, he purchased a house at the very top of Brazil's oldest favela, Morro da Providência. Over the past 7 years, he has worked to restore the house, while inviting other artists to make it a unique and inspiring place. The house is used to host workshops and teach the local children many things ranging from art, photography, healthy eating and learning new languages. Artists @takao5020 and @diirby transformed the entire house into a work of art, while @OsGemeos added some Brazilian love with their iconic characters gracing the inside and outside walls of the home. However, nothing is more noticeable then the giant moon currently being constructed on top of the house. The moon can be seen from miles away sitting on top of the favela as a symbol of hope and a brighter future. I will forever cherish the friendships I made there, my family for life. Special thanks to @douglasoliveira92 for showing me around and making me feel at home. So inspiring to see how a project can effect so many young minds, I can't wait to return to this special place.

GRAND OPENING, GRAND CLOSING
I took this photo before the opening ceremony, after I got to introduce JR to Melo. Went something like "I play Basketball for the Knicks.. Nice, I glue paper to walls" 😂 It has been an incredible few weeks here, lot's of hard work, but so many incredible memories. Tonight @fergusonag and I were lucky enough to watch the USA basketball team win the Gold Medal. The perfect end to Olympics. Thanks to everyone who has followed my journey on @instagram stories.

LET THE GAMES BEGIN

Over the past two weeks we had the truck inside Maracanã which was built in 1950 for the World Cup. Pelè played in this stadium.. We got to witness all the preperation and planning that goes into the opening ceremony. We photographed over 1,800 members of the cast, staff, crew, volunteers, contractors and security. It was amazing to meet everyone and hear thier stories, to hear how proud they were to be a part of the Olympics and represent their country. We are excited to bring the truck to our next location, Praça Maua, which will be open to the public. (August 6th - 14th) See you there!

"THE ILLS OF THE HEART" 1 of 3

For his most recent project, Addam Yekutieli ( "Know Hope" ) chose to start an untypical dialog by corresponding with incarcerated individuals currently serving sentences on death row in a Nashville prison.

"BUT I BELIEVE" 2 of 3

Following this correspondence, fragments of sentences from the inmates’ letters were extracted and placed on a series of billboards around the city.

"FALTER IN MY STRUGGLE" 3 of 3

The billboards transcend all barriers, truly giving these forgotten people a voice on the outside. Spread humanity, not consumerism.

I'm not a robot without emotions.
I'm not what you see...

Pork putting the final touches on his installation, the night before the opening of #offthewallnyc at the @worldtradegallery . If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, I will be at the gallery all day tomorrow. Stop by and say hi!

A day in the life of @dazeworldnyc

One of now 16 artists included "OFF THE WALL" a group show I am curating in conjunction with @artsorg at the @worldtradegallery next Tuesday, March 15th from 6-9pm. Hope to see you there!
