“It’s like every wedding you have ever been to and it’s like no wedding you have ever been to…”
October 26, 2010Bollywood Wedding’s initial foray into live theater had met great success at the Nuyorican Poet’s Café located on New York’s Lower East Side this past summer.  Bollywood Wedding is now on stage for a revitalized show on Thursday, November 4, 2010 at The Gates in Chelsea. The improvisational ensemble piece features a cast of a dozen, in a satire of lavish Bollywood musicals, family squabbles and wedding celebrations.
Two very different immigrant families clash as an upper-class Indian-American woman falls for a middle-class Indian-American man, and everyone discovers something they didn’t know about their friends and family. Cultural clichés collide (with tension and outrageous humor) as the newlyweds try to bring their families together.

(NEW YORK, NY – August 5, 2010)––Rising from the ruins and horror of World War I, European art and culture returned to the classical past, seeking tranquility, order, and enduring values. Artists turned away from prewar experimentalism and embraced the heroic human figure and rational organization. Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany, 1918–1936 is the first exhibition in the United States to focus on the vast transformation in European culture between the world wars. With approximately 150 works by more than 80 artists, comprising painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, film, fashion, and the decorative arts, this thematically organized exhibition examines the return to order in its key manifestations: the poetic dream of antiquity in the Parisian avant-garde; the politicized revival of the Roman Empire under Benito Mussolini; the functionalist utopianism of International Style architecture that originated at the Bauhaus; and, ultimately, the chilling aesthetic of nascent Nazi society.

Ando will also be showing a hot-rolled steel 36" x 48" x 72" skateboard ramp/sculpture collaborative piece (created by Shelter Serra) which will be etched by muriatic acid-coated skateboard wheels ridden on the ramp.
