Revenge Body

Mark your calendars!

As of today, we are officially 1 month away from the Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian season 3 premiere (Sunday, July 7 at 9 p.m.) And, after taking a look at the latest teaser above, we couldn’t be more excited. Per the new footage, Khloe Kardashian‘s transformation series will “redefine” revenge. Not only will contestants shed pounds with the help of Revenge Body‘s trusted trainers, but the participants will also bulk up on muscle.”I only know how to do skinny,” one male participant admitted in a confessional.

Nonetheless, fitness and lifestyle consultant Ashley Borden assured her client that he could put on about 30 pounds. Of course, this won’t occur without some “blood, sweat and cheers.” “It’s not just about today. It’s about the rest of your life,” former professional rugby player Luke Milt on wisely noted on camera. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the wise guidance of Revenge Body‘s host. True story.

“You look amazing,” a contestant noted to Kardashian. “Honey, I’m trying to keep up with you,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star happily responded. For all of this and more, be sure to watch the new promo above!

KYLA PRATT

For years people have probably asked and wondered, whatever happened to Kyla Pratt? She’s right here and apparently she’s all grown up!

Most of us remember Kyla from Disney’s first animated series, “The Proud Family,” where she was best recognized as the voice of ‘Penny Proud,’ and as Breanna Latrice Barnes in UPN’s hit series “One on One.”

After playing the daughter of Eddie Murphy’s character in the films Dr Dolittle and Dr. Dolittle 2, she returned to her motherly duties.

In 2010, Kyla gave birth to a baby girl, Lyric Kai Kirkpatrick; and in 2013, she gave birth to her other daughter, Liyah Kirkpatrick.

Although Kyla continued to act on small projects to keep herself busy, her devotion to her girls and the importance of bonding with her family was a priority.

Kyla joined the cast of BET’s “Lets Stay Together” (in 2014) during its second season; and in February 2014 was voted #97 on VHI’s 100 Greatest Child Stars.

One of the most arduous things to execute is to change the minds of the fans by convincing them that you are no longer a ‘kid’ anymore. The transition from kid star to leading actress can be challenging at times, but that wasn’t the case for her.

Kyla understands the power of reinvention. Thus, when she wasn’t in front of the camera, she was busy molding herself into an ingenue right before our eyes. Kyla has been heavily involved in private coaching and attending acting classes to perfect her acting skills. Concurrently, taking advanced yoga and pilates classes to mold her incredible body.

Well, we guess hard work pays off!

As of late, she starred in the Tate Bros Film, Back To The Goode Life, which aired a couple of weeks ago on BET opposite London Brown. She played ‘Francesca Goode’ – a successful, New York banker who goes from being a `Boss Lady’ to a`Broke Chick’ – the FBI freezed all her assets after she’s wrongfully blamed for unethical banking. Directed by Tamika Miller.

That’s not all she has been brewing…

Recently, Kyla Pratt has signed onto the Fox comedy pilot, “Patty’s Auto.”

The inspiration is taken from Patrice Banks’ Girls Auto Clinic – an automobile repair shop ran by all female mechanics. The project is based around ‘Patty’ (Carra Patterson) and the eclectic women who work for her. Kyla will be playing the role of ‘Tiny,’ Patty’s younger sister with a different father who gives manicures inside the shop, often getting frustrated with her sibling for treating her like a kid (even when she acts like one herself ). This show promises to be comical, endearing and whispered to be one of her best performances.

So while we are at home mulling over on whatever happened to Ms. Pratt?! She’s too busy working.

Talent: Kyla Pratt.

Marchesa Donates Crazy Rich Asians Gown

Marchesa Donates Crazy Rich Asians Gown to the Smithsonian at Los Angeles Event

Dress Joins Collections in the National Museum of American History

Marchesa is donating the iconic blue dress that played an integral role in the Warner Bros. Pictures film Crazy Rich Asians to the National Museum of American History. The dress will be presented May 18 during “The Party: A Smithsonian Celebration of Asian Pacific Americans,” a Los Angeles event hosted by the Smithsonian’s Asian Pacific American Center at City Market Social House. “The Party” will celebrate and recognize the many contributions of Asian Pacific Americans to history and culture across industries, including music, film, sports and culinary arts. Tickets are available at Smithsonianapa.org.

This blue gown is part of a pivotal moment in the film’s plot in which Rachel Chu, played by actress Constance Wu, attends a high-profile wedding in defiance of her boyfriend’s disapproving mother Eleanor Young, played by Michelle Yeoh. The gown is a floor-length Grecian-style dress made of light blue tulle with floral applique, a deep V-neck and a cinched waist. The original version of the dress designed by Marchesa for its fall 2016 collection featured long sleeves, but they were temporarily removed by the film’s production for aesthetic purposes. The museum will receive the altered sleeveless version that appeared in the film.

“The film’s use of fashion is not merely decorative or secondary,” said Theodore S. Gonzalves, curator in the Division of Culture and Community Life at the National Museum of American History. “The cast’s clothing plays a crucial role in marking social class among its characters—from multi-generational moneyed elites of Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese immigrants), to the nouveau riche strivers of Singapore, to working class Chinese immigrants in the United States and their Asian American model minority progeny.”

Crazy Rich Asians is notable for having a mostly East Asian cast, the first Hollywood film to do so since The Joy Luck Club in 1993. The Warner Bros. film grossed $238 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy in a decade. The Crazy Rich Asians Marchesa gown joins a rich collection of museum artifacts with origins in film and entertainment such as Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers from The Wizard of Oz, Batman’s cowl from Batman and Robin and a handmaid’s costume from The Handmaid’s Tale TV show. The museum’s Archives Center also has a number of other theatrical scripts, video and audiotapes in its Luther Davis Collection.

“Representation of Asian Pacific Americans in film and media is critical to the visibility of a community who has made many contributions to the arts,” said Lisa Sasaki, director of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center. “By collecting the film’s iconic dress, the Smithsonian is better able to present these contributions to the world.”

Marchesa is an American brand specializing in women’s wear based in New York City. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig established it in 2004.

From its establishment in 1997 as an initiative critical to the mission of the Smithsonian until today, the vision for the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center has been to enrich the American story with the voices of Asian Pacific Americans. Asian Pacific America is the story of a vibrant, diverse and resilient set of communities that have been part of the American experience for more than 200 years. The center believes that people’s understanding of America and America’s standing in the world is richer, more compelling and more powerful when it includes the Asian Pacific American story. “The Party” also marks the launch of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Keystone Initiative, which is designed to rally support for the first permanent Asian Pacific American Gallery within the Smithsonian. The Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center serves as a dynamic national resource for discovering why the Asian Pacific American experience matters every day, everywhere and all of the time.

Through incomparable collections, rigorous research and dynamic public outreach, the National Museum of American History explores the infinite richness and complexity of American history. It helps people understand the past in order to make sense of the present and shape a more informed future. The museum is located on Constitution Avenue N.W., between 12th and 14th streets, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (closed Dec. 25). Admission is free. For more information, visit http://americanhistory.si.edu. For Smithsonian information, the public may call (202) 633-1000.

“Katya Zvereva: Femme Fleur” Solo Show

KATYA ZVEREVA: FEMME FLEUR
A Solo Exhibition Curated by Indira Cesarine
 

OPENING RECEPTION May 14 // 6pm-9pm

THE UNTITLED SPACE

45 Lispenard Street Unit 1W

NYC 10013

The Untitled Space gallery is pleased to present, “Katya Zvereva: Femme Fleur,” a solo exhibition of works by artist Katya Zvereva. Curated by gallery director Indira Cesarine, the exhibit will open on May 14, 2019, and be on view through May 24, 2019. Katya Zvereva is a multidisciplinary visual artist whose works combine raw emotion with vivid colors and deliberate forms. Having participated in a number of successful group shows, this is the artist’s debut gallery solo show. “Katya Zvereva: Femme Fleur” will showcase a wide range of new works by Zvereva, including large scale acrylic and oil paintings, woodcuts, monotypes, drawings, and sculpture. The Untitled Space will premiere Zvereva’s vibrant new body of work that examines raw emotions, women, and relationships with a powerful visual language. 

Katya Zvereva was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 1990. She received her Master’s Degree of Architecture from the V. Surikov Moscow State Academy Art Institute in 2013, and her Masters of Fine Art from New York Academy of Art in 2016. Her artwork was first discovered by The Untitled Space’s gallery director, Indira Cesarine, in 2016, at the celebrated Tribeca Ball, where she presented her graduate showcase. She has since exhibited with The Untitled Space in numerous group shows including, “IN THE RAW: THE FEMALE GAZE ON THE NUDE”(2016), “UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN” (2017), “SHE INSPIRES” (2017), “SECRET GARDEN: The Female Gaze on Erotica” (2017) and “EDEN” at SPRING/BREAK Art Show, 2019. 

Her latest series has evolved from her early monochromatic woodcuts to bold, saturated works on canvas that interrogate a broad spectrum of human emotions and intense interrelationships. States the artist, “I think we all have the same palettes of emotions within ourselves, we may feel them more or less strongly or more or less often, but no matter who we are, we are all exposed to this psychological or physical phenomenon.” Zvereva’s use of color and texture as a storytelling method can be seen throughout her works, both old and new. Her detailed drawings tell complex stories while her color-infused woodcuts engage the viewer with their textured nuances and bold strokes. Pulling inspiration from her female friends, Zvereva uses her new works to explore what kind of woman she is in relation to the most universal emotions of humanity. “My inspiration comes from people whom I love, I think that is one of the most important things, love in particular. I want to create art everyone can identify with. The emotions that I’m showing in my paintings are mostly basic emotions: fear, anger, curiosity, love, pain. I want people to look at my paintings and say ‘I can hear it, I can feel it, it’s part of me.’”

A multidisciplinary artist, Zvereva’s work crosses over into many mediums, from painting, printmaking, drawing, and sculpture, to explorations with object d’art and furniture. In printmaking, she has developed her own unique technique based on monotypes mixed with drawing, which she often prints on multiple layers of fabric or hand-made paper. She creates large-scale installations based on analog woodcuts, which are printed by hand on a multitude of surfaces.  Her bold floral paintings, painted on canvas as well as leather, evoke emotional metaphors of the subconscious. Her artwork has been exhibited in New York City, Los Angles, Moscow, and St. Petersburg and can be found in many private art collections in the United States, France, Germany, and Russia. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

“Through the exploration of many different mediums and techniques, I want to formalize the coincidental and emphasize the subconscious process of composition. My thought process is a culmination of private, subjective, and unfiltered references from my past and future, which are revealed to the viewer as assemblages. My works attempt to communicate a visual dialogue between my private world and reality. I want the viewer to question the dissonance between form and content, and the dysfunctions of language. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of ‘inside/out’ I make works that can be considered emotional self-portraits. By contesting the division between the realms of memory and experience, I create my own visual vocabulary which addresses my intimate reality as well as contemporary social and political issues. My works expose bit by bit a fictional and experimental universe. With each installation, I try to express the complete structure of the process, while at the same time allow the viewer to experience their own interpretation. I create art as an act of visual meditation.” – Artist Katya Zvereva 

Zvereva’s exhibition is part a series of solo exhibitions presented by The Untitled Space throughout 2019 featuring artists with an extraordinary body of work that aligns with the gallery’s mission to promote women in art and unique voices that are under-represented. 

ABOUT THE UNTITLED SPACE:

The Untitled Space is an art gallery located in Tribeca, New York in a landmark building on Lispenard Street. Founded in 2014 by Indira Cesarine, the gallery features an ongoing curation of exhibits of emerging and established contemporary artists exploring conceptual framework and boundary pushing ideology through mediums of painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and performance art. The gallery is committing to exploring new ideas vis-à-vis traditional and new mediums and highlights a program of “Women in Art” as well as special events aligned with our creative vision.
