tour details listed below

The Friendly Falcons are undertaking a five-country tour through Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, France and England. They are presenting, The Cactus Duet, a nomadic theatrical set that fits into a suitcase and is assembled on-site, incorporating music and kinetic sculpture to build a narrative about the inherent cyclicity in nature. The conceptual underpinnings, design, and form of the work reflect contemplations of nomadism and wandering. It is a performance of travel-friendly engineering and reductive editing, bringing with them only what can be carried, and customizing the show according to the site. All music is written by their musical alter ego, The Hawk is a Lonely Hunter.

The Friendly Falcons and Their Friend the Snake is the collaboration of New York artists Tara Pelletier and Jeffrey Kurosaki. Inspired by what they deem as life’s magnificent and miniature grandeurs, they create multi-layered narratives with sculpture, drawing, music and performance. Their work is like riding a wave of primary colors and absurdity with an undercurrent of melancholy and whimsy.

The Friendly Falcons exhibitions include: ABC No Rio, New York; Governor’s Island, New York; Artjail, New York; RPSC Gallery, Oakland, California; Wayne State University, Detroit; and Forum Gallery, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. They were recipients of the Toby Devon Lewis Award in 2007 and recently finished a residency on Governors Island through the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.

9/11 - 11/9 Exhibition Curated by Jo-Wood Brown/ Berlin Collective Artist Conversation Documentary Coming Soon...

Artist Exchange International

Shortly after 
9/11, I was curious as to what was happening with the
work of artists’ friends of mine, who lived and had studios near the
World Trade Center.  I got in touch with the critic Lilly Wei, who
lived in the same area, and she recommended more artists to contact.
To begin a discussion around this work, I received a grant to bring
artists from around New York to studios in Lower Manhattan.

In 2002 I founded what became Artist Exchange International to enlarge this discussion  between New York City’s artists and artists around the world and between artists and their communities through exhibition and panel.

AEI sponsored a number of exchanges: art exhibitions, studio visits,
and panel discussions.  These events have included such museums as the
Metropolitan Museum in New York and the Van der Heydt Museum in
Wuppertal.  Other exchanges involved artists from Belfast Northern
Ireland, and Wuppertal Germany.  We like to imagine artists talking to
one another individually, talking as one group to another group, and
talking as members of the present to the art-historical tradition.

The name of this exhibition "Berlin 
11/9 – 9/11 New York" suggests the symmetries and asymmetries we are exploring in our latest exchange.Two cities, two dates (and two ways of writing the name of a date);
fall 1989 and fall 2001 and falling structures, and the common
questions that people ask on such stupifying occasions: What story
just ended? What is the new story that just began?

Jo Wood Brown, Curator

Digital Artwork Reproductions in Berlin

Digital Artwork Reproductions
by Daniel Tobias

When photographing artwork, even with a very good digital camera, many people find the results they achieve are simply not good enough.

If you need archive-quality documents of your artwork, I can help. 
My Berlin-based company, DT Reproductions, specializes in creating high-quality photographic reproductions of artwork. We photograph work in situ, with a setup that includes lighting gear and a computer, and deliver high-res digital files immediately.

Whether our clients require just one piece documented, or several hundred, our specialized equipment and precise technique allows us to complete work very efficiently and cost-effectively, always with the same unwavering commitment to quality.

We serve artists, galleries, publishing companies, museums, private collectors, and students.
Because of our quick turn-around, our services can be exceptionally useful for artists visiting Berlin from out of town.

The Fifth Ocean - en udstilling af Elizabeth McTernan (US)


Very scientific sound and distance studies, conducted in the Gobi Desert. Beyond technological prosthesis, how far can two humans drift apart across an open expanse before they can no longer understand each other, or even detect each other?

A New York-born artist, Elizabeth McTernan received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD. Her cross-media work has been exhibited internationally, including venues in New York, London, Berlin and Gothenburg. Once upon a time she witnessed someone slip and fall on a banana peel. Liz currently lives, works, and walks in Berlin.

Message from Berlin Collective Photographer & Designer: 

For the past 10 years I have been working as a photographer and commercial artist in various countries such as Germany, Canada, England, Scotland, India and Iran.  It has been an inspiring challenge to be exposed to the diversity that each country and each individual project had to offer.

My degree in B.F.A (applied art) from the University of Pune, India opened the path to work as an international freelance photographer and commercial artist.

Being based in Berlin I have the honor to contribute my part as a photographer and designer for Berlin Collective. I am also available to photograph events in berlin.
