Fashion Exhibition & Runway
by NY Chinese Designers & Artists
from Parsons, FIT, Pratt, SVA and NYU
Saturday, October 1, 2-10:30pm
Exhibition on View: October1- 9
We are our own temple.
Throughout history, across nearly all religions and cultures, there has always been the concept of a temple, a place to contemplate the purpose and meaning of life. Though we may not be religious or go to a physical temple, as artists and designers we draw inspiration from the “temple” of our inner selves to bring imagination and beauty into creation.
This exhibition will feature artwork and fashion collections from emerging Chinese artisans. The audience will have the opportunity to explore these artisan’s inner selves or “temples” by learning about the inspirations behind their artistic expression.
The main mission of this exhibition is to create more exposure for NY based Chinese artists in order to celebrate their culture and educate the public about their heritage.
This exhibition will represent diversity, inclusivity, cross-cultural values and faith. Through this unique visual and culture experience, visitors will be invited to reflect and explore their own internal temples during the exhibition.

Robert Mark Dance’s Inaugural New York Season
Friday October 28, 2022
Saturday, October 29, 2022
Robert Mark Dance is a contemporary dance company based in Astoria, Queens, led by Artistic Director and Choreographer Robert Mark Burke. RMD is excited to announce its inaugural New York season, Dawning, featuring the premier of Dawned, a new work in collaboration with composer Eric Dietz, supported by the O’Donnell Green Music and Dance Foundation.
By definition, "dawning is the beginning or first appearance of something; coming into existence,” and for the first time ever, RMD comes together as a company to present an entire evening of work on Oct. 28 & 29, 2022. Produced in partnership with Culture Lab, LIC, Dawning is an evening of dance consisting of Short Stuff, a series of short dances created over the last 5 years and the premiere of Dawned.
“Dawned” is a multidisciplinary new work that investigates the instinctual shared experience of how isolation and grief build communities empowered to find new hope. Inspired by the photography of Gregory Crewdson, choreographer Robert Mark Burke and composer Eric Dietz have built a world that focuses on communal bonding through desolation and confinement.
