Harlem Condo Life – Phoenix: Xu Bing at the Cathedral in Harlem

Phoenix_Full-Marion_Kahan

I can’t wait to go to check out this new exhibit at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine which according to their website opened on March 1st. Read on…

Over the course of two years, pioneering Chinese contemporary artist Xu Bing culled detritus from construction sites across the rapidly changing urban landscape of Beijing, and transformed it into his most monumental project to date: Phoenix (2008-10). A feat of engineering and ingenuity, Phoenix is composed of two birds, a male called Feng and a female called Huang. Feng and Huang—each weighing 12 tons and measuring 90 and 100 feet long, respectively—are now coming to the Cathedral. They will hang suspended in the Nave, two majestic birds in perpetual flight beneath its celestial ceiling.

Listen up and mark your calendar.  Lara Land of Land Yoga will be hosting a very special event in Harlem on March 18th called “Taste Of India.”

Event Details

Join us for a glamorous Bollywood night.  Ticket includes two hours of Indian inspired cocktails, food, and music at Ginny’s Supper Club, Red Rooster’s downstairs Jazz Lounge.

Every year in India, young people are lured away from their homes by criminal trafficking networks.  Over the past 20 years Odanadi has carried out over 60 brothel raids and brought more than 140 traffickers to justice.

Sponsored by Land Yoga, Red Rooster, Riazul, Iceberg Vodka, and Harlem Blue.

This week’s quote is a short but impactful and critically important video from Michaela Angela Davis – image activist, writer, conversationalist, editorial director, feminist, fashionista, community servant, and CNN contributor.

No summary of ours could do her poetic words any kind of justice.  

Just listen.  Reflect.  And share with the loved ones in your lives.
