UNTITLED SPACE ART AUCTION

The Untitled Space presents Fahren Feingold “LIVING FOR LOVE” – a benefit art auction, supporting SeekHer Foundation.

Bidding Live: January 30 – February 8, 2023

Preview lots from January 24: untitled-space.art

The Untitled Space is pleased to present “LIVING FOR LOVE” benefit art auction featuring watercolor paintings by celebrated artist Fahren Feingold presented in partnership with SeekHer Foundation supporting women’s mental health. Featuring 25 unique works including several new releases, the auction will kick off with an online preview on January 24, 2023, with bidding live from January 30 at 12pm EST through February 8 at 12pm EST on untitled-space.art. A portion of proceeds from the sale of each artwork will be donated to SeekHer Foundation, a non-profit advocacy project of WellSeek, a social impact collective that is reimagining women’s wellness. SeekHer Foundation is on a mission to bridge the gender gap of mental health through advocacy, research, and support to empower women to thrive in their work and lives. 

The benefit auction features a vibrant collection of works on paper and panel by artist Fahren Feingold, who has become known for her ethereal feminine watercolor paintings that emphasize the female gaze through fluid brush strokes using her signature wet-on-wet technique. The artist, who has been represented by the gallery since 2017, has been featured in a number of solo exhibitions, group shows and benefits presented by The Untitled Space, and is featured in numerous notable international collections. 

“Painting in ethereal colors, I interpret auras and energy fields between me and my models. The figures appear translucent as they swim on the page and gently nudge the viewer to interact. Exploring themes of how I exist in the world, interact with others, and how I can be at one with the surrounding universe has taken me a lot of time and growth. Through my own journey with mental health, I am constantly seeking out ways to expand and be more empathic.  In doing so, I have created new circuits of understanding, patience, and compassion. Opening my eyes to the beauty and love that exists within me and around, my paintings act as a quiet dagger of truth, exposing the beauty of the feminine form from the female gaze, emphasizing the female body as a great thing to behold, free of judgement and objectification. My paintings of the female figure expands the footprint of women painted by women, celebrating sisterhood and empowering female themes.” Artist Fahren Feingold 

Preview auction lots from January 24, 2023 and register to bid online at untitled-space.art. 20% of each artwork sold will be donated to SeekHer Foundation. 

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY 

Watercolor artist Fahren Feingold imparts an ethereal quality to her unique works depicting the female form. Her watercolors featuring bold feminine nudes reference her own photographs as well as imagery from early 20th century French erotica, and vintage American magazines from the 70s and 80s. The Los Angeles native moved to New York at the age of seventeen to study at the Parsons School of Design. After earning her BFA between Parsons and Glasgow School of Art, she worked as a fashion designer for top brands including Ralph Lauren, Nicole Miller, and J.Crew, among others. In 2016, her dreamy watercolors caught the eye of the legendary Nick Knight, who commissioned her to illustrate Paris Fashion Week for SHOWStudio. Her work has been featured in numerous international exhibitions including “Moving Kate,” curated by Nick Knight for SHOWStudio in London and The Mass in Tokyo; “The Vulgar” at The Barbican in London, curated by Judith Clark and Adam Phillips; “Red Hot Wicked” at Studio C Gallery in Los Angeles; as well as a number of exhibitions at The Untitled Space, including her debut solo show in 2017.

Celebrated as “a trailblazing artist on a meteoric rise” by Vogue, her watercolors have steadily gained recognition from collectors and critics alike for their sensitive, dreamlike colors, graceful brush, and rendition of the female nude. Through her erotic depictions, Feingold gives new voices to women of the past and present while exploring larger notions of female constructs in contemporary society.

In 2017 The Untitled Space presented her debut solo show FAHREN FEINGOLD, followed by her 2018 solo show, PEEP SHOW, presented in collaboration The Untitled Space and fashion brand Fleur du Mal, and her 2021 solo show, WET DREAMS presented at the gallery’s location on Lispenard Street in Tribeca.

About Renaissance

Beyoncés seventh studio  Renaissance,” has arrived. This is Beyoncé’s first album in six years and first since her world-conquering Lemonade. The 16-song project cites production by Hit-Boy for her song THIQUE.” Hit-Boy, who’s no stranger to collaborating with artists, is responsible for producing a string of anthemic records for Beyoncé (Sorry,” “Flawless,” and “Bow Down / I Been On” to name a few). 

Beyoncé stated in her Instagram post, “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time in the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

Last July, Parkwood Entertainment, an imprint of Columbia Records, made pop history with Renaissance artwork.

Beyoncé’s cover art displayed her prominently seated on a crystal horse with a black background. While both of her hands appear to be placed on the steed, her upper half is on the side and facing us.

New Reebok BB 4000 II sneaker release via 360 MAGAZINE.

REEBOK BB 4000 II

Today, in honor of the official re-launch of its iconic BB 4000 II heritage court shoe, Reebok has announced a two-day “Vintage Shop” pop-up celebration, February 10 and 11, 12:00pm – 6:00pm EST, from 484 Broome St, N.Y., NY 10013 (aka 57-59 Wooster). The event, open to consumers, will bring together NYC’s best in vintage sportswear, offering attendees exclusive access to custom products, rare vintage pieces, panel discussions, retro games, and more. Reebok’s SS23 BB 4000 II ($90) collection, featuring four new seasonal colorways and its first women’s-specific model, drops February 1 from Reebok.com and select retailers.

Throughout the two-day “Vintage Shop” event, paying homage to sport-style history, Reebok will platform vintage sportswear shops Select Vintage and Grand Street Local, providing attendees the opportunity to peruse and purchase rare Reebok items from years past, hand-picked exclusively for the event. As a special gift, consumers will receive a pair of BB 4000 II sneakers with every vintage purchase.

Additionally, LAST ONE LEFT, a concept brand changing the way consumers view second-hand garments, will be on-site offering on-demand screen printing for consumers to transform their garments into true 1-of-1 pieces. The event will also offer sounds from local emcees DJ Mil-house and DJ 9AM.

 

Those interested in attending the Reebok “Vintage Shop” can RSVP at ReebokBB.splashthat.com.

 
Soft-launched in fall ’22, Reebok’s BB 4000 II is a transcendent lifestyle basketball sneaker first introduced by the brand in the late ‘80s. The model championed Reebok’s disruptive “BB” footwear range, which – through its irreverent product designs and ad campaigns – would inject new energy into basketball culture in that era, helping to bridge the gap between hardwood and concrete.

For SS23, BB 4000 II tips off the year with a range of premium designs including two varsity jacket-inspired “Letterman” colorways (IG4790, IG4791) and the model’s first women’s-specific executions, “Natural Suedes” (IF4730, IF4731), with all four offering a strong textural mix of premium suede and leather. Fitting for any modern wardrobe or lifestyle (at an accessible price point), the renewed BB 4000 II brings subtle value adds and an elevated construction to the highly wearable silhouette, including Reebok side-stripe and cross-check branding, a unique split Union Jack tongue logo nodding 80’s brand heritage, an EVA rubber midsole, and a durable outsole featuring classic basketball tooling. 

Reebok’s SS23 BB 4000 II ($90) range is available February 1 from Reebok.com, with select colorways landing in-store from HibbettJourneys, and Snipes, and more. Consumers can anticipate the launch of new BB 4000 II colorways and archival stories throughout 2023

Detroit native and IMG Model Ebony Riley releases new EP via 360 MAGAZINE.

Ebony Riley

The R&B game has its next big thing in Ebony Riley. With her new EP, ebony, out today via Interscope Records, the Detroit native makes her case as one of the genre’s most thrilling prospects and adds her name to the long list of stars reared in the Motor City. In just seven songs, Ebony, previously known as “Riley Montana,” delivers an unforgettable project that blends the flavor of today’s R&B sounds with her charming mix of sass, sensuality and sensitivity. Whether its charged flirtation over an upbeat ’80s sample, cussing out a soon-to-be-ex lover out, or mediating on that eternal question – “Why me?” – ebony runs a range of emotions and is sure to have listeners reaching for the replay button. “I just want people to feel heard and understood when they listen to my music,” Ebony says. “I want to take people on a journey.” Join that journey and listen to the full ebony EP HERE.

Focus track “Deuce Deuce” sets the tone. On the song, she flips what could be a sad post-cheating revelation on its head, instead rewriting the typical narrative to come out on top. The kiss-off track comes complete with its official music video, featuring a cameo appearance from Lori Harvey. Watch the full “Deuce Deuce” video HERE. Further highlights include contributions from a who’s who of proven R&B hitmakers, including GRAMMY winner James Fauntleroy (“Why”), and GRAMMY nominees Shea Taylor, who produced four of the EP’s songs, Muni Long and Jeff Gitty (“Draws”).

A nine-year veteran of the modeling industry, Ebony Riley has graced the catwalk for top fashion houses and appeared in exclusive editorial spreads, including Vogue France and Harper’s Bazaar. But, the millennial covergirl notes, “Music was always on the menu.” Thanks to her mother and grandmother, Ebony had an early musical education in gospel and ‘90s R&B, and traces of such influences – The Clark Sisters, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu – exist in her own music. “I draw from all of them in my work,” the singer makes clear.

To celebrate the EP’s release and Ebony’s achievements, Interscope and Lenny S hosted exclusive listenings in New York and Los Angeles for partners and tastemakers to rousing reception. East Coast attendees included Drake, Justin and Hailey Bieber, Meek Mill, A$AP Ferg, and more, while Kelly Rowland, Coco Jones, The Internet’s Syd, Lori Harvey, Muni Long, Jozzi and others graced the LA festivities. If there was any doubt about Ebony’s appeal, all questions were answered when guests heard the EP and watched the “Deuce Deuce video.” The verdict? The crowd screaming, “run it back!!”

Gonçalo Santana releases Brainless via 360 MAGAZINE.

Gonçalo Santana – Brainless

‘Brainless is a poignant piece of prose. Each single is thoughtfully conceived and evokes emotions. The future of this Swiss crooner is bright.’360

Gonçalo Santana is a singer, songwriter, and producer based in Switzerland. Heavily influenced by his family, Gonçalo discovered his passion for music at an early age. Thanks to his father, also a singer, Gonçalo was exposed to a variety of distinguished artists. Like Prince, Luther Vandross, Bruce Springsteen, and Stevie Wonder. He began to write his first verses at the age of Eleven on the napkins and notebooks of boredom. In the end, some songs were even recorded by him and in a more professional manner by his father. Over the years, Gonçalo sought refuge to express himself through words that led to the songs.

In November 2021 Gonçalo released Empty Poetry. Produced by Portugal’s singer and producer Macaia. After taking the time to release new music, Gonçalo Santana released his second single called Verity in 2022, which exceeded 20,000 feeds on Spotify alone. An R&B-inspired song from the early 2000s. On January 27th, Gonçalo Santana finally released its first EP, Brainless.

About Brainless

Brainless came to life when Gonçalo Santana was in a place of vulnerability. Each song represents a mark in time for him, where he felt the need to express himself in order to get it out of his head. Almost every song from Brainless comes from a personal experience. Musically, Gonçalo felt the need to go back in time and resurrect a genre of music that didn’t get much attention in our current times. That’s when he teamed up with the Portuguese music producer Macaia and created 6 songs heavily inspired in the old school R&B and Gospel music.

Marvel's Planet of the Apes released new cover via 360 MAGAZINE.

PLANET OF THE APES

This April, Eisner-winning writer David F. Walker (Luke CageBitter Root) joins forces with artist Dave Wachter (Iron Fist: Heart of the DragonStar Wars: The High Republic – Trail of Shadows) in Marvel’s highly-anticipated new PLANET OF THE APES comic series! The all-new ongoing series will continue the thought-provoking and thrilling conflict over which species will dominate Earth.

This new era of apes kicks off with part 1 of “Devolution.” The ALZ-113 virus has rampaged across planet Earth, and humanity is crumbling. While well-meaning researchers hunt for a cure, a fanatical group of humans has their own solution: kill all apes. Peacekeeper Juliana Tobon is one of the few willing to stand against them, but the crisis is spreading, and soon apes will witness the true depths of human cruelty…

“Not only is PLANET OF THE APES my favorite film franchise, it was my favorite series of comics from Marvel when I was a kid,” Walker said. “Both the films and the comics ignited my imagination and helped me fall in love with the art of storytelling. To be part of Marvel’s return to the PLANET OF THE APES is more than an honor, it is a childhood dream come true.”

Earlier this year, Marvel Comics proudly announced that the PLANET OF THE APES franchise would be returning to Marvel with all-new stories, collections, and an exciting variant cover program. Marvel Comics and PLANET OF THE APES have a deep history that goes back over 40 years. Marvel first published PLANET OF THE APES stories in 1974, and in 1975, Marvel published ADVENTURES ON THE PLANET OF THE APES, full-color adaptations of the iconic Planet of the Apes films. The legendary science fiction franchise has spanned over five decades with media including comics, books, films, television series, video games, and toys and Marvel is thrilled to explore the storytelling limits of this groundbreaking saga once again!

Check out Joshua Cassara’s brand-new cover below and witness the start of a new revolution when PLANET OF THE APES #1 arrives in April! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
