Barrick Museum of Art Reveals Fall 2018 Exhibition “” Festivity Inflation”” Oct. 12

Tamar Ettun: Festivity Inflation

Exhibit Dates: Oct. 12 – Dec. 15

Opening Reception: Performance and ArtWalk 5- 9 p.m. Oct. 12, UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art

The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is pleased to provide the culmination of a multiyear international art tetralogy by Tamar Ettun.

Festivity Inflation merges different areas of the artist’s practice in a complex examination of injury, healing, and radical empathy.

On view in the museum’s East Gallery from Oct. 12 to Dec. 15, this solo exhibition consists of a number of parts. At the center, there is an intimate compartment including a setup of interactive audio work. It is surrounded by mixed media sculptures, a choice of speculative videos, and 4 inflatable room-sized environments where visitors will be enveloped by a climate of brilliant color. Influenced by the avant-garde individualism of mid-twentieth century art motions such as Fluxus and Gutai, Ettun asks us to check out the experience of play. Playfulness, in the context of her work, uses us a possibility to process our engagement with the world. The selection of artist videos includes work by Alika Cooper, Cheryl Donegan, Trulee Hall, Joan Jonas, and Jen Liu.

Tina Wang, a very long time collaborator and “mover” from Ettun’s New York performance ensemble, The Moving Business, will visit Las Vegas to collaborate with regional dancers in a live improvisation of ritual-like actions that link personal vocabularies of object-oriented movement with the generation of an unique neighborhood. Motion is important to Ettun’s work. Even her still sculptures have been constructed so that they appear to gesture like bodies. Made from cloth and discovered objects, they experience the space of the gallery with an aura of vulnerable personhood. That atmosphere of vulnerability extends into the snug main location of the exhibition where a video shows us how interactions with soda bottles, sardine tins, and other commodities can end up being primal expressions of alarm and desire. Flights of paratroopers in another video invert their encounter with the sky and float back into their airplanes.

The question of negotiating a world where we are exposed to both discomfort and joy has played a consistent role in Ettun’s career. The human potential for transformation through compassion has actually absorbed her considering that her training in Israel where she lived with 2 siblings struggling with cystic fibrosis and eventually experienced the numbing effect of institutional brutality when she was conscripted into a military parachute routine as a young adult.

“I observed closely how handling injury and PTSD increases rigidness and closes down communication, as discussion requires a versatile position and consists of the prospective to alter and be changed by another individual,” she says. “This individual experience resulted in a few of the themes of my practice today– for instance, my resistance to basic binaries of right and incorrect, which I experience through the fluidity of play and the senses.” The transformation of parachute fabric from a vehicle for martial hostility into the soft, intense walls of her inflatable rooms typifies the alchemy she produces. Her structured areas reveal the human spirit through simple materials such as material, inflated air, tape, stitches, ropes, and wood.

Each previous iteration of the tetralogy has actually found brand-new methods to draw connections in between color and emotion, dividing the task into blue/empathy, yellow/desire, pink/aggression, and orange/joy. Festivity Inflation brings all four aspects together for the first time, introducing Las Vegas and the western United States to the world of Tamar Ettun at a turning point in her career.

The title for the exhibit is influenced by On Orange, a poem by Rose McLarney. This project is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state company, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal company.

Ettun is a sculptor and a performance artist based in Brooklyn, New York City. She has actually had exhibits and performances at Art Omi Sculpture Garden, the Watermill Center, e-flux, Sculpture Center, Knockdown Center, Madison Square Park, Bryant Park, Socrates Sculpture Park, Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Jewish Museum, Uppsala Art Museum, Fridman Gallery, Braverman Gallery, PERFORMA 09, 11 and 13, to name a few. She got awards and fellowships from the Pollock Krasner Structure, Franklin Heater, Macdowell Fellowship, Marble Home Job, RECESS, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Art Production Fund, and Iaspis. Ettun founded the Moving Company, an artist’s collective developing efficiencies in public spaces and a social engagement job with Brooklyn teens hosted by the Brooklyn Museum. Ettun got her MFA from Yale University in 2010 where she was granted the Alice English Kimball Fellowship. She studied at Cooper Union in 2007, while earning her BFA from Bezalel Academy, Jerusalem. She teaches at Columbia University’s School of Arts, Lehman College, and the New School Parsons School of Design. ORANGE, the final performance of the tetralogy, will premiere at Leader Works in 2019.

Call reveals frantic effort to conserve Bode Miller'' s child

LOS ANGELES (AP)– A woman frantically asks an emergency situation dispatcher to coach her on how to carry out CPR during a 911 call as she and others frantically struggle in vain to conserve the life of Olympic skier Bode Miller’s daughter after the toddler fell under a pool.

“Yes, rush. HURRY,” the woman yells at the start of the call released Tuesday.

Asked by a male dispatcher what the emergency situation is, she informs him a 19-month-old lady fell into a yard swimming pool, is not breathing and has no pulse.

“We have no idea,” the female, who sounds near tears, replies when asked for how long the lady was in the water.

“Are you doing CPR or do you need me to coach you through it?,” he asks.

“Coach me through it, please,” she replies.

Neither her voice nor others heard on the call are identified.

“I have a small pulse. I have a little pulse,” a guy says urgently at one point.

“I require an oxygen maker here. Like now,” he includes.

“Ok. They’re coming as fast as they can,” the dispatcher responds as he continues to provide instructions.

“Begin, Emmy. Come on baby girl,” the lady pleads.

As the minutes check off, the man swears as he asks where the ambulance is.

“They’re on their way. They’ve been on their way for several minutes. Ok? They’re practically there, they’ right there on the street,” he states soon prior to emergency situation sirens are heard.

Paramedics continued to aim to restore the lady as they hurried her to the medical facility, stated Capt. Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority, which launched the 911 call.

There have actually been 13 drownings in Orange County so far this year, according to stats released Tuesday by the agency. Three involved kids under 5 while other victims were 15 or older.

The fire authority reposted its rules for staying safe in the water on its Facebook page Tuesday. Amongst them are always having adult guidance at swimming pools where kids are present, keeping swimming pools behind a barrier that includes a locked gate and knowing CPR.

Miller, who lives in Coto de Caza, is the most embellished male U.S. skier with 33 World Cup wins, two overall titles, 4 world championships and six Olympic medals, consisting of gold at the 2010 Vancouver Games in the super-combined. At the 2014 games in Sochi, Russia, he was the earliest alpine skier– at age 36– to win a medal.

It was at his fifth and final Olympics in Sochi that Miller was brought to tears as he recollected about his more youthful sibling, Chelone, an appealing snowboarder who passed away at age 29 after a seizure the year before.

Considering that retiring from snowboarding he’s worked as an NBC sports analyst. His wife, Morgan, is an expert volley ball gamer.

On Tuesday Miller posted a recent photograph of himself holding his blonde-haired child, in addition to the message, “Thank you for all the love and assistance.”

In a previous post he said, “Never ever in a million years did we believe we would experience a discomfort like this,” including that Emeline’s love and spirit would never be forgotten.

Miller and his partner have three older kids.

Hotel Offer Reveals Private Equity'' s Power When Firms Choose to Dip Into Record $180 Billion in Dry Powder

Excess Capital Facing Decreased Reinvestment Opportunities Now; but Might Set Up Equity Funds for Next Cycle

With a mandate from shareholders to grow, Jon E. Bortz, chairman, president and president of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, privately reached out in early March to Stuart Scott, chairman of LaSalle Hotel Characteristic, with a deal to join forces and develop the market’s second-largest lodging real estate financial investment trust with $8 billion in assets.

But after thinking about the proposed share-for-share stock market with a suggested price of $30 a share, LaSalle’s board rejected the offer as inadequate. Pebblebrook then went public with its offer, a relocation that had immediate and far-reaching repercussions.

In a property investment market awash in capital with minimal purchasing opportunities, a bidding war for LaSalle soon broke out, with a reported 10 prospective buyers circling the REIT and its collection of upper-upscale and luxury hotels. Private equity titan Blackstone Group emerged as the purchaser, with LaSalle accepting an all-cash deal of $33.50 per share.

The method LaSalle was put in play shows a market in which the volume of private equity capital, or ‘dry powder’ in financier parlance, has actually increased to tape-record levels. The stack of money targeted for purchasing realty in The United States and Canada now stands at near $180 billion, inning accordance with private equity information company Preqin.

Too Much of an Excellent Thing?Private equity

funds have now raised more capital than the total amount they have invested in real estate in the last three years. The extraordinary level of capital offered on both the financial obligation and equity sides has produced heated competitors for prime properties, increasing costs and triggering investors to move into new markets and residential or commercial property types in search of much better yields. Some fund supervisors have even transferred to the sidelines, pointing out the surfeit amount of capital chasing after the restricted number of opportunities.

However based upon the recent performance history of realty funds and the returns they have actually created over the past several years, a growing number of loan continues to gather. By some quotes, very first quarter fundraising hit a near record with $33 billion raised.

That level of fundraising defies recent investment patterns, according to a report from Oliver Senchal, head of realty items at private equity data supplier Preqin. The most significant concern, Senchal reports, is the quantity of capital that has currently been plowed into realty by investors, and the resulting diminished reinvestment chances.

There is a lot more financial investment capital out there than needed.

“We truly don’t require the same amount of balance sheet capital that we may have today to pursue and prosecute [our] service strategy,” stated Darren Tangen, primary monetary officer of Colony Northstar, according to a transcript of the firm’s last earnings call.

Instead of purchase more property at today’s high evaluations, Tangen stated he chooses to offer some of the firm’s assets and redeploy the capital on the right side of the balance sheet– by buying back common stock or redeeming preferred stock.

On the other hand, stated Brad Gries, managing director, head of U.S. transactions for LaSalle Financial investment Management, said much of the financial investment capital that been raised just recently has a 2- to four-year financial investment duration.

“So the pressure to invest the capital is not yet at its height,” Gries said.

“Nevertheless, we have actually seen bid-ask spaces [in between purchasers and sellers] widen in the last 18 to 24 months, and deal activity decrease, which would naturally lead to more dry powder, especially in a strong fundraising environment. Other elements, such as [the restricted variety of] readily available chances, are also likely at play, however more difficult to measure.”

Since March 31, LaSalle had approximately $8 billion available for financial investment, inning accordance with Jones Lang LaSalle Inc., its parent company. It raised about $700 million in the first quarter.

“There is no concern the marketplace is very competitive and, provided where we remain in the cycle, asset worths are inflated, but for the most part, I believe investors have actually stayed disciplined, both in terms of technique and prices,” Gries stated.

Capital Circulation Still Strong into Multifamily, Industrial, Hotels

Multifamily realty has actually brought in the most investment from equity funds than any other property type for a minimum of the last three years. It has actually represented a 3rd or more of all home purchase volume in each of those years, inning accordance with CoStar data.

There is a great reason for that, said Jack Mulcahy, a credit threat expert for CoStar Group.

“Spread compression charts would suggest that multifamily is still in high demand and, in our view, will remain so. Cap rates have actually disappointed lots of signs of increasing,” Mulcahy stated.


Spreads (deal cap rates to 10-year yields) have contracted to 315 basis points for all property types with cap rates being 5.9% and the Treasury rate now exceeding 3 percent, inning accordance with Mulcahy’s analysis. To put this into context, 315 basis points is nearly 100 basis points lower than 2016 averages. Nevertheless, it is still far better than a long-term average of closer to 270 basis points.

“Regardless of the compression, a cap rate spread of 315 basis points still represents a terrific return,” Mulcahy stated. “If you’re trying to find a long-term hold, property is still a fantastic investment.”

Meanwhile, financiers consisting of equity funds are getting solid returns in other home sectors as well. Industrial residential or commercial property spreads match multifamily at 350 basis points, and commercial funding is still easy to come by, Mulcahy stated.

Blackstone, once again, has actually been among the most active investors in industrial property. It obtained about 110 million square feet of additional storage facility and circulation homes in four separate deals through recently totaling more than $10 billion in spending.

“Industrial lease development is so excellent right now and it is also considered a derisker in regards to a recession,” said David Bitner, vice president Americas head of capital markets research for Cushman & & Wakefield.”It’s a good play, and leave it to Blackstone to move quickly when the opportunity arises.”

While equity fund residential or commercial property investment overalls have actually fallen in each of the previous three years, Bitner said Cushman & & Wakefield is requiring an increase in volume this year especially in multifamily and commercial.

“It is harder to call for an uptick in main business district office,” Bitner said.

Yet even here equity funds might have a play, he included, as Chinese corporations who went on a purchasing binge two and three years back are now said to be going shopping those financial investments in light of tighter constraints on abroad investment from their country’s government. If the sales take place, try to find equity funds to be in the mix.

Hotel activity by equity funds in basic grew significantly in the first quarter, improved by portfolio activity. Hospitality deals comprised 25 percent of equity fund spending, according to CoStar information.

Might Today’s Retail Realty Be A Sign of Future Spending?Given existing higher

appraisals and the late position in the cycle, equity funds seem in no particular hurry to put all that capital to utilize immediately.” We are conscious that with every quarter we’re another quarter later in the cycle,” Brian Kingston, senior handling partner and CEO of Brookfield Property Partners, informed investors, according to a transcript of the firm’s last profits teleconference.” So it’s prudent we think to have some dry powder and flexibility readily available need to some disruptions happen, so that we have the ability to take advantage of it.”While nobody is saying equity funds are market timers waiting just to get on falling property rates, retail homes have already moved into the next cycle with cap rates moving up as current sales show retail as a riskier financial investment. Still, even here there is billions of dollars of financial investment capital prepared for implementation. JLL recorded a 46 percent decrease of financial investment into retail possessions through the first four months of the year. It associates the drop to

investor caution and the understanding that present retail returns are not commensurate with existing evaluations. However, the retail home category might be a sign of how equity funds will proceed in the next cycle. Earlier this year, Acadia Real estate Trust

, through its Acadia Strategic Chance Fund V, got Trussville Boardwalk, a 463,836-square-foot power center

in Birmingham, Alabama, for$45.2 million from a seller that considered it non-core in a market it was abandoning. “We acknowledge and appreciate the intrinsic threats of these higher yielding shopping mall, but at today’s rates and by remaining selective, we are normally able

to buy these possessions at a discount rate to replacement expense, and in some instances at a price-per-foot that would indicate that we are getting the land for free,” kept in mind Amy Racanello, senior vice president of capital markets and investments for Acadia Realty Trust, in the company’s last profits teleconference. Acadia has about $1.2 billion of dry powder offered to deploy through the summer of 2021. This is a slower pace than Acadia originally anticipated, Racanello said.”However with the personal market still in shift, we seem like the best purchasing opportunities for our fund platform might still remain in front people, especially thinking about the disruption we are seeing in the selling and REIT industries.”Despite the decrease in recent retail financial investment, there remains a big quantity of capital looking to be deployed into retail property, inning accordance with JLL retail advisory services, which sees more

financiers like Acadia actively searching for opportunistic buys in the coming 12 months. “There isn’t a conclusive jumping-in point for [retail] transaction volume to accelerate, but as we head into the back-half of 2018, we expect deal activity to get due to market capitulation and

financier confidence finding solid footing,”said Chris Angelone, retail financial investment sales lead for JLL.”There is more capital than item, which is unfolding a tremendous chance to buy at a discount to current valuations.”

Unilever Reveals Consolidated North American HQ in Englewood Cliffs


Ian Dunning( right ), Unilever’s North American office director, talks about the smoothie bar at the consumer-product’s revamped and consolidated head office in Englewood

Cliffs, NJ. Credit: Linda Moss for CoStar Group

There is a fancy lunchroom with lots of options, healthy and locally sourced food, in addition to a different tea station, an ice cream parlor and a shake bar, which is a success with millennials.

In addition to the complete fitness center, there are wellness rooms where one can do light exercise, stretch, meditate or pray. Workers can stop by the hair salon for a cut or blowout, and drop off dry cleansing on the way there. New mothers can go to personal “mother spaces,” where hospital-grade breast pumps are readily available to them.

With all that, the newly-renovated North American headquarters of Unilever, the international consumer-products huge, is missing out on just one thing: workplaces.

On Tuesday, company officials highlighted that point, the fact that not even their president has a workplace or an assigned desk at what they are calling the Unilever Market, the revamped and combined head office on Sylvan Opportunity in Englewood Cliffs, NJ.

” We have no workplaces in the whole structure,” stated Ian Dunning, Unilever’s North American work environment director. “Nobody owns anything and everybody shares everything.”

Unilever and officials from some of the firms that dealt with the renovation task made their remarks during a media trip of the business’s North American base, which lies simply north of the entrance to the George Washington Bridge on New Jersey’s Palisades.

Unilever– with brands that consist of Ben & & Jerrys ice cream, Lipton tea, Hellmann’s mayo and Dove– said that comprehensive work at the head office campus has resulted in among East Coast’s most sustainable and technologically-advanced wise structures, one that is designed to promote interaction and partnership among workers.

Features such as the hairdresser, tea station and ice cream parlor, along with a company shop, permit Unilever to showcase its brands and also foster interaction, Dunning stated. The hair salon, for example, utilizes TIGI, a line of Unilever expert haircare items.

In 2014, Unilever revealed “Task Unify,” a plan to combine five of its North American workplaces and several of its operating groups into a single workplace, at 700 Sylvan Ave. The head office went from 5 buildings with about 800,000 square feet to 2 structures with roughly 441,000 square feet, about a 40 percent decrease, according to Dunning. As part of the process, four of the main buildings were connected together, all connected to what was once an outdoor courtyard however was covered and made into a large atrium or indoor plaza.

The partners on the renovation stage of the project, which took 2 years to finish, were designer Perkins+ Will, designers OVG Property and Normandy Real Estate and broker Cushman & & Wakefield.

Unilever decreased to comment on the expense of the renovations, but said they will ultimately lead to an overall 20 percent operating cost decrease.

Before the combination, there were 14 entrances/exits at Unilever’s headquarters, meaning that workers might go from the parking lot to their workplace and just see a handful of their colleagues on any given day, inning accordance with Dunning. Now there are just three entryways, all protected and needing keycards to get in.

There was a “broad mix” of purposes for renovation, Dunning stated.

” The top-line motorist has to do with service efficiency,” he stated. “And what we were battling with and suffering with was this very disjointed company. We were topped several structures, people were just so detached. Actually, individuals would see simply 3 individuals a day. A huge driver was we had to be more linked. We needed to bring people together. We need to ramp the energy up.”

In addition, Unilever wanted to do a better task of keeping and attracting staff members, like millennials that are progressively entering the labor force, inning accordance with Dunning.

” We were losing skill due to the fact that individuals discovered the work environment was a real drain on the energy,” he said. “It’s certainly helped us on the recruitment side. And we’ve actually seen our loss rates reduced over the last 12 months.”

Story continues below …

Click infographic to view larger.Unilever, which has approximately 1,800 workers in Englewood Cliffs, was likewise looking to slash its energy expenses, and it is looking for Platinum LEED certification for the revamped headquarters. The center is now using innovative wise technologies, consisting of 15,000 sensors that determine temperature, occupancy, daylight and pinpoint staff members’ locations. Based upon that data, functions such as the heat and cooling can be changed in various parts of the building appropriately.” We can in fact see how the building is performing at any time

,” Dunning said. Unilever’s employees and executives don’t have desks or offices, but they have actually designated

workspace and lockers, inning accordance with Dunning. For example, there are designated areas,” areas, “for executives and the numerous Unilever teams, he stated. “People know where they pertain to in a building, they understand which floor they deal with, which

location they operate in, but then they can utilize 2 difference desks on various days,” Dunning stated. There are likewise silent spaces on each floor and phone booths, which

don’t have phones, he said. Business-related calls are conducted on Skype, and the booths
