An installation of photographs depicting the informal housing (ashwa'iyat) that comprises over 40 percent of Cairo and the hope that the state, oblivious to the needs of that community, would eventually come to its aid. Since the photographs were taken, that hope has been met in the form of a revolution and the hope to establish a democracy that in turn will benefit theashwa'iyat and its inhabitants.Lara Baladi works essentially with reproducible images in various media and formats. Born in Lebanon, raised in Paris, and currently residing in Egypt, Baladi's installations, videos and collages, address memory, both collective and personal, in a codified language that articulates a multicultural perspective in a world of shifting boundaries. The show runs from feb 28 through May 20th at 19 Washington Square North. Click HERE for more information.

In a Punchdrunk production, audience members are free to roam the performance site, which can be as large as a five-story industrial warehouse, and can either follow the performers and themes (any of them, for there are usually multiple threads at any particular point in time), or simply explore the world of the performance, treating the production as a large art installation. Former Secretary of State for Culture James Purnell cited Punchdrunk as an example of "access and excellence" in modern British theatre. The first performance of this brand new production of Punchdrunk's “Sleep No More” in New York City took place on 7 March 2011 at 530 W 27th Street I had the great fortune of sitting in on the full Dress Rehearsal and I can tell you first hand that this is the most amazing and entertaining experience I have had in 20 years of New York City arts - outside of a dream of course.

Republic Worldwide Joins list of Sponsors for the YWCA childrens anti-violence project at The Coney Island Aquarium
 
Coney Island is a cool enough place with it's roller coasters and beaches but as I recently discovered, the real secret treasure old Coney Island is the Coney Island Aquarium. In these tranquil and mostly silent chambers and hallways I recently spent the afternoon preparing an exhibition of fine art by the students of the various YWCA school chapters throughout New York. What better place to host a youth anti-violence project than an Aquarium. Its hard to feel anything but happy when your surrounded by these amazing creatures. Its going to be a great show. We will keep you posted with pictures and updates. 
Republic Worldwide is now accepting submissions for our new outer space & U.F.O. exhibition: DISCLOSURE!
Hello again,
 
     In our Spring Newsletter you'll find out about all the interesting things we have been up to at Republic Worldwide over the last few months. From our work at the Coney Island Aquarium to the new show we recently installed at NYU Abu Dhabi and from the excitement of reporting on Armory Week in New York for Jetsetter.com to our continued effort to develop sponsorship for our non-profit exhibition SKIN DEEP, it has been a very busy season. We are however very excited to begin development on a new project that will certainly stretch the limits of your imagination.
 
     Nothing so captures the popular imagination as outer space and the idea of extraterrestrial visitors to our planet. Have you ever looked up at the stars and wondered how much longer we will have to wait to find life elsewhere in the universe? Although actual definitive evidence eludes us, Disclosure! is dedicated to the promise that we are not alone. The exhibit includes both humorous and serious work, paintings, small sculptures, faked photographs, personal stories and work designed for extra-terrestrials. We are currently accepting submissions and ideas of conceptual and traditional work by artists who explore space, time and close encounters of every kind. To submit work please send images or website links to Jason@republicworldwide.com or call 917. 478. 7513. We can't wait to hear from you and get this project off the ground!
 
     Also, don't forget that we are running a special on our services section through April, so If you need the very best fine art and photography installation team to install an individual piece or an entire collection you kow where to find us. We also do art consulting and can help you aquire the perfect addition to your private and corporate collections. At Republic Worldwide we provide only the best and most professional services in the business with hundreds of impressive references.
