A charity concert and an outsider art fair: how to spend a weekend in New York (January 17-19)

Collage: ForumDaily

What: Exhibition of works by Efim Mikhailov

When: Friday-Sunday, January 17-19.

Where: Ukrainian History and Education Center 135 Davidson Avenue Somerset, NJ 08873

More: Efim Mikhailov was one of the most unusual and peculiar Ukrainian artists of the early twentieth century. His desire to convey the world of ideas, feelings and sounds in visual form led to the appearance of images that seem familiar, but so unreal and amazing.

His symbolic landscapes, whirlwinds of musical stars and waterfalls, red-hot flowers in the moonlight and delicate still lifes were completely unlike the work of his contemporaries. Unwillingness to comply with socialist realism led to his arrest, exile and premature death in the Russian Arctic.

Visible Music will be the first significant exhibition of the works of this artist in more than 30 years. It will feature 72 works by the artist.

Cost: Free.

What: Exhibition 'The Origin of Man'
