Preparing for the Fall Season

Christy Ferer, Vidicom CEO enjoys walking around Central Park during the fall. It is a wonderful time to be in New York City as the leaves start changing colors and holiday markets begin to serve apple cider and other holiday treats. The fall foliage is almost beginning, but I am pretty sure it has begun in the New England states. Stay tuned for some of my favorite fall photos!

Paul McCarthy’s White Snow Show

Christy Ferer, Vidicom’s CEO, recently saw Paul McCarthy’s latest show, WS (White Snow) at the Park Avenue Armory. It’s McCarthy’s largest exhibition and one that certainly won’t be forgotten!

WS is a collaboration with his son, Damon McCarthy, which “weaves together a fantastical forest and a three-quarter-scale house modeled after McCarthy’s own childhood home, with multi-channel video projections to immerse visitors in a world of fantasy and depravity.” To sum up Christy Ferer’s thoughts about this show, it was disgusting.

Whoever decides to see the show is a brave soul!

Biennale de Venezia – Christy Ferer Travels to Venice

06-03_fullVidicom’s CEO Christy Ferer’s bags are packed, my ticket’s lined up, and I’m waiting for the 28th to fly off to Venice for this year’s Biennale de Venezia, a yearly art celebration.

I’m especially excited to visit this year to visit my good friend Cindy Sherman’s curatorial project — a show within the show, made up of over two hundred works by more than thirty artists. Dolls, puppets, mannequins, and idols cohabit with photos, paintings, sculptures, religious insignia, and drawings by prison inmates, which together compose an anatomical theater in which to contemplate the role of images in the representation and perception of the self.

Is anyone else headed to Venice? Hope to see you there!

Last night’s event was an absolute smash. Christy arrived at dinner and mingled with some friends and influential New Yorkers, and then enjoyed a performance by Grammy Award winner Jennifer Hudson.

The 92nd Street Y really is a great program, and it’s powered entirely by donations. Looking for a great cause to support? Click here to learn more now.
