Monkdogz great add on the back of Gallery and Studio Magazine for "Damez"!

About the lounge at the Concord JFK:
British Airways Concorde Room at JFK
Monkdogz's latest exhibition of 8 exemplary artists sculptures is an installation in the most exclusive "flying club" in the world, the British Airways Concorde Room at New York's JFK International Airport.
The ConcordeRoom was designed by the CD partnership, Sir Terence Conran’s architecture and design practice, the Concorde Room at New York’s JFK airport for the ultimate jetsetters. The lounge is a design classic, like Concorde itself. Every piece of furniture is a celebration of 20th century design from the Corbusier chaise longue to the Matthew Hilton armchair, the Eileen Grey Bibendum chair to the Charles Eames lounger.
The lounge includes two wall drawings commissioned from distinguished artist Sol LeWitt at either end of the room. A mobile by Richard Smith shimmers in air currents behind the panels on the remaining side and a series of photographs of Marilyn Monroe by Eve Arnold are also highlights.
In this august setting, a sculpture wall was designed to showcase artwork between the main lounge and a smaller VIP room. The Monkdogz Exhibition includes Alex Racine, Charles Schindler, Rene Hinds, Kasper Holten, Richard Pitts, Sue Willis, Kevin Davenport, Richardo Norte, Laura Ann Jacobs and Noël Dorado.
"Contempory Art Today"
News from Monkdogz.com
History has dictated that occasionally windows of opportunity open within the art world. In the 1930s, artists like Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock just to name a couple, were afforded a platform to exhibit their work in New York City. The reception worldwide was significant. Again, in the early 1970s, artists like Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring were afforded the same opportunity.
We believe that as we go into 2007, the window opens once again but this time on a more international scale. The world today is very much a global village. Distances, time zones and different languages are no longer the barriers that they once were. The internet now allows us a level of communication that easily brings the world to us.
