Today is the birthday of the late Augusta Savage. She is an inspiration for many women. A true symbol of the Harlem Renaissance. Savage is the inspiration of the Met show currently on display and she is the inspiration behind our exhibition Harlem Sculpture Gardens. God Bless her soul.

I have created nothing really beautiful, really lasting, but if I can inspire one of these youngsters to develop the talent I know they possess, then my monument will be in their work. Augusta Sava…

I am saddened over the death of Chita Rivera. I got to meet her a few years ago. I was thrilled because I met her, Rita Moreno and then Anita DeBose. All three Anitas. I interviewed Rita Moreno for my radio show. I completely lost it. For Chita, it was at a dance event also for the radio show. I got to meet Anita right here in Harlem when they were filming the remake of West Side Story on St. Nicholas Avenue.

God Bless Chita!

About CounterPointe Brooklyn, NY—Norte Maar in collaboration with Brooklyn Ballet presents CounterPointe, the annual curated performance series featuring women choreographers making new work on pointe. Series will run three nights at The Mark O'Donnell Theater at the Actors Fund Arts Center (160 Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn, NY).

CounterPointe is an annual performance series dedicated to presenting the latest experimental, innovative, risk-taking choreography that shows a depth of investment in ballet by women dance makers working with the pointe shoe. Investigating new and old territory the series highlights new work, opening up discussion, and creating a forum for women, young or old, emerging or established, to take risks. Since 2016 Norte Maar has paired choreographers with visual artists, presenting their new collaborations at CounterPointe.

Dance and art luminaries who have moderated a panel discussion following Saturday's CounterPointe have included Guerrilla Girl Frida Kahlo, Karole Armitage, Ashley Bouder, Sharon Butler, Antonia Franceschi, Claudia Jeschke, Kat Wildish, Gabrielle Lamb/Pigeon Wing Dance, Lynn Parkerson/Brooklyn Ballet, and Kathryn Posin. In 2018 award-winning artist and writer Sharon Butler led the discussion. Stay tuned to find out who will lead a talk back with choreographers and their collaborating artists following the Saturday February 29 performance of CounterPointe.

The series made its inaugural presentation in Brooklyn at the Actors Fund Arts Center in 2012. In June 2013, the series made its London debut at the Broadway in Barking.

I remember one of my first ideas in these early punk pointe pieces was to think of pointe shoes as weapons. – Karole Armitage, 2013 CounterPointe Panelist

I think what you are doing is fantastic for the continuation of the exploration of choreography on pointe. – Susan Jaffe 2012 CounterPointe guest choreographer

SEIZAN Galley New York is please to present Bedtime Stories, a group exhibition focused on smaller scale works by four Japanese artists: Ruiji Aiba, Yuichi Kashima, Akihiro Misaki, and Ami Yamashiro.

Ruiji Aiba (b. 1964, Fukuoka, Japan) creates ceramic sculptures of imaginary figures and animals derived from Japanese and Chinese folklore. His works fit into the palm of a hand and are painted in iridescent colors with meticulous detail. The creepy, yet whimsical creatures of Aiba with their strange tales lure viewers into another world. The exhibition includes his sculptural work and utilitarian pieces such as sake cups, tea pots and a lamp shade.


Ruiji Aiba. Catfish And Two-Tailed Cat (Calico), 2021. 4.7 x 2.5 x 3 inches (12 x 6.3 x 7.5 cm)

Yuichi Kashima (b. 1981, Tokyo, Japan) often depicts nightscapes derived from his memory: A highway wrapping around a remote mountain, a bridge shooting through two tunnels across the Kano river, or a rural road that frames a grid of rice fields. The mundane yet dreamlike scenes capture the living breathing essence of the landscape, as if it was some sort of living creature. The show includes four lithographs by Kashima produced since 2013.


Yuichi Kashima. Slope Way, 2014. Woodblock print. 12 x 17.5 inches (30.5 x 44.5 cm).

Lithograph artist Akihiro Misaki (b. 1987, Tokyo, Japan) focuses on simple shapes, objects and ordinary scenes. They are often photocopies of images that begin in the artist’s mind, yet resonate with the viewer, in shared nostalgia. It's as if the scenes are from our own memory or dreams. The show includes six prints produced since 2013.


Akihiro Misaki. Hand, 2016. Lithograph. 11.7 x 8.3 inches (29.7 x 21cm).

Ami Yamashiro (b. 1987, Fukuoka, Japan) is a master of etching and Mezzotint prints. In rich black ink, she recreates mythical scenes featuring a long-haired girl, animals, and mysterious objects. The images are reminiscent of fantasies from another time such as Alice in Wonderland. They are eerie and awkward, yet strangely comforting, and invite us to imagine what might happen next.


Ami Yamashiro. Habit, 2014. Etching. 7.7 x 8.5 inches (19.5 x 21.5cm).
