Thomas Berding: Field Test
Sep 03, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
The Painting Center is pleased to present Field Test, an exhibition of recent work by Thomas Berding in the Main Gallery. Thomas Berding: Field Test continues the artist’s mining of both the language of abstraction and digital and post-industrial refuse. Reclaiming images often overlooked in the deluge of information and surplus of material culture, Berding’s new work also represents an expansion of his painting practice through the incorporation of inkjet transfers and collage. Reflective of our chronically unsettled world, the paintings in this series possess an unmoored character that carry historical and personal memory while putting forth new streams of associations and cosmologies that both hint at the familiar and image a realm we could not preconceive of. Berding’s paintings have been recognized with awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and NEA/Mid America Arts Alliance. Over his career, Berding has exhibited at many venues including the David Klein Gallery, Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum, Rochester Institute of Technology, Indiana University, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Rhode Island School of Design Museum among many others. Thomas Berding currently lives and works in East Lansing where he is Professor of Studio Art at Michigan State University. For more information on the artist, please visit thomasberding.com

Summer Gems
Jul 11, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
Art is inspired by nature, often elevated to greatness by its adaptation and heightened aesthetic. Nihonga creates from nature, using natural mineral pigments as the base for painting—part of a longstanding artistic tradition. Coming from a practice that is thousands of years old, with evidence remaining at sites such as Lascaux and Altamira, Nihonga embraces nature-derived color, transforming minerals onto materials such as washi (Japanese paper) and eginu (silk). “Summer Gems," hosted at the Sato Sakura Gallery, juxtaposes paintings by Nihonga artists alongside many of the world’s finest mineral specimens, in conjunction with Wilensky. The resulting duality of minerals alongside paintings is a celebration of contrasting color, light, balance, and composition.

"Interpreting Layers" opens at Nohra Haime Gallery on Tuesday, September 10th from 6-8pm
Sep 10, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
"Interpreting Layers" compares the work of contemporary artists Francisca Sutil and Pierre Dunoyer. While both have a strong focus on layering the canvas with strokes, lines and spaces, their varying approaches produce vastly different results. Rather than painting subjects, both artists veered toward abstraction early in their career. Dunoyer focuses of the "practice" of painting, honing the essence of the stroke and the physical expression of the brush. With bold strokes of colorful, thickly layered paint, the artist covers only part of the canvas in his signature style. Intentional space is left between well-defined gestures to enhance the relationship between color and form. Sutil on the other hand, has a methodical, almost meditative approach to her brushwork that exudes delicacy, restraint, and precision. It is a mental process from which a neat and pure chromatic production emerges. Her work is characterized by its superb construction and encourages reflection and meditation. Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 10th from 6-8 p.m. Dates: September 10 - 28, 2019 For more information: Leslie Garrett at 212-888-3550 or art@nohrahaimegallery.com

Sep 05, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
The exhibition consists of three groups of works, Masks, new versions of 500 Brushstrokes, and Coded Paintings. Periodically Wu has used ox-hide instead of paper as the material that he cuts and manipulates, notably in The Heaven of Nine Levels. While this was characterized by the complexity of its design and iconography, the Masks consist of entire buffalo hides from which sections have been removed, subsequently painted in bright colors. Larger in scale than traditional masks, they hover between the animal and the human world.

Magic Time!—Art & Ephemera of the Caffe Cino
Aug 15, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
Organized by Ward 5B and Caffe Cino alumnus Magie Dominic, “Magic Time!—Art & Ephemera of the Caffe Cino” coincides with the theatre’s designation as a historical site by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission in June 2019. In 1958 at the age of 26, Joe Cino opened a coffeehouse at 31 Cornelia Street in Greenwich Village. Soon Cino started to allow the production of small, avant-garde theater productions in the venue. Caffe Cino would serve as one of the earliest safe spaces for gay artists to perform their plays, songs, and poetry, despite the illegality of depicting homosexuality on the stage at the time. By paying off both the local organized crime racket as well as the NYPD, Joe Cino was able to create a radical environment where the New York underground took root. As Theatre of the Ridiculous founder, John Vaccaro, stated: “The Caffe Cino is the beginning! This is it! The major things done in New York were done there, and nowhere else. I don’t give a shit what anybody else says. They’re lying.” Operating until 1968, Caffe Cino has been widely acknowledged as the birthplace of Off-Off Broadway Theatre, along with the formation of American Queer Theatre. The Caffe Cino was the cradle of gay culture, informing future generations with its fiercely independent spirit. | Opening Reception: Thursday, August 15, 2019 – 6:00-8:00 p.m. 247 West 29th Street, Ground Floor, New York, NY 10001

Sex Crimes
Aug 15, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
“Sex Crimes,” organized by ClampArt and Ward 5B, explores queer culture as it has been historically defined by legislation in English-speaking countries outlawing sexual relations between consenting adults of the same gender. These draconian laws, interchangeably referred to as Crimes Against Nature, Unnatural Acts, and Sex Crimes, have led to mass incarceration, institutionalization, conversion therapy, public shaming, familial rejection, and the wholesale death of gay people. The exhibition “Sex Crimes” provides artwork and literature with homosexual content that was often created in a shadow world of criminality, organized crime payoffs, and under the threat of arrest. These pieces, aimed primarily at gay men, were often passed surreptitiously from person to person. Producers of the artworks faced imprisonment and harassment if they were caught. The body of work presented in “Sex Crimes” provides a window into the camaraderie and defiant response of sexual outlaws to governmental, religious, and cultural homophobia that has historically criminalized them. Until the Stonewall riots in 1969, gay people had not collectively organized in resistance to repression and discrimination. And it was not until 2003 in Lawrence vs. Texas that the US Supreme Court finally ruled that nonremunerative sex between consenting adults in private was protected by the Constitution and could not be criminalized. | Opening reception: Thursday, August 15, 2019 – 6:00-8:00 p.m. 247 West 29th Street, Ground Floor, New York, NY 10001

Tracy Collamore: Reliquaries
Sep 03, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
FIRST STREET GALLERY is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of recent work by Tracy Collamore. Reliquaries is a series of still-life oil paintings that imply the existence of an ominous dimension beyond the physicality of the objects and settings. Much like a reliquary that transforms objects into mystical sources of thought, Collamore uses a variety of boxes in each painting to house a variety of objects within. Starting with similar compositions and sizes, Collamore creates balanced arrangements inside the box and sets them in front of women’s clothing. Backgrounds of dresses imply the female form, while the box and objects transform into an exposure of internal organs. This series exposes the implications of female reverence and the expectations of societal gender roles. The subtle narrative of each painting exposes what it is to be female. Tracy Collamore has a B.A. in Studio Art from Moravian College and an M.F.A. in Painting from Western Connecticut State University, where she studied with resident faculty including Margaret Grimes and Marjorie Portnow, and visiting faculty including Susanna Coffey, Judy Glantzman, and Ruth Miller. Collamore has exhibited her work extensively in solo, invitational, and juried exhibitions regionally and in New York City. She is an Associate Faculty of Art at Post University and serves as President to the Board of Directors at First Street Gallery. See more of Collamore’s work at www.tracycollamore.com

Sep 05, 2019 -- Oct 05, 2019
Conrad Egyir, Patrick Quarm : Anansesem explores the palimpsestic nature of identity in an increasingly globalized society.Woven into Conrad Egyir’s narrative paintings and portraits are symbols from the rich storytelling traditions of West Africa, the coded texts and visually-based languages of Ghana, and anachronisms borrowed from across cultures and historical eras. Patrick Quarm’s paintings explore questions of cultural authenticity and hybridity. Painting figures directly onto spliced and layered African print fabrics, the interplay between the realism of the portraits and the geometric abstraction of the textiles emphasizes the mutable nature of identity.

The Voyeur
Sep 05, 2019 -- Oct 05, 2019
Marlon Portales The Voyeur September 5 – October 5, 2019 Opening Reception: Thursday, September 5th, 6-8 PM Artist will be in attendance Chelsea, New York: Marlon Portales’s first solo show in the U.S., The Voyeur, brings together a series of medium and large format paintings portraying spectators in different New York museums. The artist observes viewers in a museum space and their expressions. In the intimacy of the studio, he reinterprets those impressions in painting. The Voyeur analyzes art spectators, converts them into models and places them at the center of artistic discourse. The reception of works of art, the pleasure and the impact that they produce in the subject, captivates Portales; he wishes not only to contemplate it but also to represent it. As they view his paintings of other people viewing art, Portales’s audiences are invited to think about their own roles as spectators. Marlon Portales (Cuba, 1991) graduated with the highest honor for his academics and professional achievements from the Superior Institute of Arts (ISA 2018). Portales is a multidisciplinary artist, working with several media, including painting, performance, installation and video. His political and ideological worldview results in works that pose sociological and philosophical questions, creating dialogues that invite universal reflection. Portales has been included in several group exhibitions and solo shows in Cuba, the United States, Spain, Germany, and Italy. He has participated in residencies such as Art OMI at OMI International Art Center, Ghent, New York (2015); Illy & UNIDEE in Citta del Arte – Fundazione Pistoletto, Biella, Italy (2016); and Fountainhead Residency, Miami, Florida (2018).

MEWE
Sep 05, 2019 -- Oct 08, 2019
ME WE a two-person exhibition featuring artwork by Alou Dia and Ludovic Nkoth Opening Reception: Thursday Sept. 5, 2019 6-9pm I By Appointment Only September 5- October 8 For hours and appointments contact: (646) 886-2254 or ludovicnkoth@gmail.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 15, 2019, New York, NY — OZANEAUX ArtSpace is pleased to present ME WE, an exhibition featuring artworks by two emerging African immigrant artists, Alou Dia and Ludovic Nkoth, living and working in New York City. This exhibition seeks to bring together all people-- from the art world and beyond--to collectively explore what it means to be an African and an immigrant in this country, and what it truly means for America to be great. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 5 from 6 to 9 pm. Please join us in celebrating the opening of this meaningful exhibition. Using techniques including collage, drawing, and squeegee painting, Alou Dia tells his personal, tense and hopeful experience of immigrating from Senegal to the United States. In his paintings, warm color palettes with thick and rich textures, geometric or floral patterns stemming from African fabric, and pictorial images of urban environments are seamlessly woven into a beautiful story. These stories depict happy, flashing memories of Dia’s hometown, where he spent his childhood, revelation of his African identity, and a new life here, in New York City. Dia’s canvas offers a moment of reflection on relevant issues, including the meaning of nation and border, interwoven and interrelated cultures, as well as self-care and respect for others. Ludovic Nkoth explores the relationship between the body and urban spaces while investigating the impact of colonization on pre- and post-colonial Africa and the African diaspora. In wrestling with figuring out his identity as a person of color, he communicates tension by crafting and infusing rich textures and colors from both opaque and transparent layers. The artist states that ever since he was a pre-adolescent, he has been fascinated by the essential “unreality of the moment.” What starts out as vision soon manifests itself as a corruption of greed, producing only a sense of chaos in which a new process of understanding has to be undertaken. As momentary simulacra of reality become revealed through frantic and critical practice, the viewer obtains a new access to unique authenticity and lasting truth.

Bette Klegon Halby tackles the dramatic social, economic, and political divide that is becoming more prevalent in our culture. Klegon Halby’s dynamic wall work explores the potential inherent in canvas itself; once soft canvas is now made hard, once two dimensional is now made sculptural – a duel between two worlds unfolds.

Sangbin IM: AI/IM
Sep 05, 2019 -- Oct 12, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce AI/IM, an exhibition of new work by Sangbin IM. IM is known for his dynamic composite photographs, each meticulously composed from a combination of hundreds of IM’s own photographs and paintings. The resulting works are hyper-realistic utopian fantasies that reimagine well-known places for an increasingly technocratic future. IM’s photographic process has always relied on both the artist’s hand and digital tools, but it is the relationship between the artist and technology that is at the center of this new body of work. As an artist constantly searching for ways to optimize his extremely labor-intensive process, IM uses Photoshop’s Photomerge function to synthesize hundreds of images into a single composition. For the artist, this task is painstaking, exhausting, and fraught with fear of failure. The computer, free of such emotional baggage, simply completes the task it is given. The work in this exhibition is the product of the partnership between artificial intelligence and human consciousness—in particular the subjective consciousness of the artist. The exhibition’s title, AI/ IM, reiterates this: “AI” refers to machine learning and “IM” is both the artist’s last name and an abbreviation for “I am,” the signifier of human subjectivity in the Cartesian sense.

Josh Dorman: Retrospective Futurology
Sep 05, 2019 -- Oct 12, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce Retrospective Futurology, an exhibition of new paintings by Josh Dorman. Known for the alternate realities and fantastical creatures he creates by combining antique found imagery with drawing and painting, Dorman introduces an additional dimension into these new paintings through the use of poured resin. As the exhibition’s title suggests, in this latest body of work Dorman continues his interrogation of human history, weaving cautionary tales into his multivalent visions of a dystopian future. In his new body of work, Dorman cuts into the painting surface, generating pockets and pools of space. Into these, he layers collage and paint with multiple pours of liquid resin, building reliquary-like time capsules and trapping imagery like insects in amber. His recurring emerald and crimson lagoons and sinkholes are seen simultaneously from above and below. Equal parts water and air, they contain birds, sea creatures and heaping piles of debris: defunct machines, broken statuary, gears, cages, cells, and fungi.

CUE Art Foundation is pleased to present Hyphen, a solo exhibition by Natessa Amin, curated by Ali Banisadr. Amin creates a site-specific mixed-media installation that brings together painting, sculpture, and drawing to explore the artist’s experience of embodying a hybrid identity. Binding all of these materials together is a long undulating trail of hand-dyed newsprint that curves around the gallery’s walls, forming a textural structure within which individual objects become intertwined as part of a larger sculptural body. Opening reception: Thursday, September 12, 6-8PM

Bernard Piffaretti
Sep 13, 2019 -- Oct 19, 2019
Bernard Piffaretti creates these paintings using his signature duplication method, in which he has been working for nearly four decades. First dividing a canvas into halves with a central strip of paint, he creates an abstract composition in bold colour on one side, then mimics the creation on the other. This self-plagarism is often so exact, the eye cannot distinguish between which was applied first. In this focus on the process over configuration, Piffaretti challenges our aesthetic and emotional tendencies for problem-solving or resolution, both affirming and restraining the narrative of painting.

Now and later
Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 19, 2019
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to announce Now and later, an exhibition of new work by Deborah Zlotsky. The show marks the artist's fourth solo show with the gallery, and the first since she was awarded a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship. Zlotsky’s abstract paintings are at once vivid and hard to categorize. They reference 1960s psychedelia and the graphic boldness of Pop painting, and pay homage to Surrealist and Rennaisance traditions through playful trompe l’oiel disruptions. Her use of color, shape, form, and perspectival shifts create vibrant paintings that are both timeless and contemporary.

Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 19, 2019
Tink refers to a knitting stitch that equates to ‘unknitting’ or working backwards, to remove in order to change. It relates to Sarah Dwyer’s very physical method of working, wrestling with forms and ground until a balance of content and tension is achieved. In both her drawings and paintings, Dwyer jabs and jives at the surfaces, pushing the materials to reveal new relationships and advance our understanding of the nature of presence and absence.

Michiko Kon : Cannibal Feast
Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 19, 2019
At first glance they appear to be ordinary objects — a designer dress, a top hat, a high-heeled boot. But after closer examination, the viewer realizes that sliced peas have been fastened to the dress lining; the surface of the hat has been crafted from sardines with eyes staring into your soul for their time has clearly run out; that the stiletto boot has been stitched together using ark clam shells with a fish head tip. Michiko Kon’s work is simultaneously seductively beautiful and shockingly disturbing. Michiko Kon: Cannibal Feast presents a collection of platinum palladium prints from the 1990’s in which Kon draws on her powerful imagination to create a tension between the real and the imagined, subtly manipulating the perceptions and sensations of her viewers. Opening Reception: Thu, Sep 12, 6-8pm.

Harry Callahan : From a Recently Acquired Collection
Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 19, 2019
The photographs in the exhibition express the constant formal and conceptual concerns that give unity to Harry Callahan's treatment of some of his favorite subjects. The intimate landscape, including views of fields, leaves, and weeds of Aix-en-Provence, the sandy beaches of Cape Cod and the snowy shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago (trees in snow), c. 1950, exemplify Callahan’s reduction of photography's unbroken scale of tones to the extreme whites, the pure blacks, and a middle gray in scenes with details that are delicate and inexhaustibly intricate.

Alain Kirili: Who's Afraid of Verticality?
Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 19, 2019
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition with Alain Kirili, "Who’s Afraid of Verticality?" Gallery II will feature paintings by Shaun O’Dell, a pairing rooted in the artists’ shared appreciation for the music and rhythms of jazz. The exhibition will run from 12 September to 19 October 2019 with a reception for the artists Thursday evening, 12 September from 6 to 8 PM. A conversation between Alain Kirili and Joel Shapiro moderated by artcritical editor and publisher David Cohen will be held at the New York Studio School on Tuesday evening, 24 September 2019 from 6:30 to 8 PM. "Who’s Afraid of Verticality?" is comprised of eight hand-forged iron and copper sculptures. Demonstrative of Alain Kirili’s lifelong fascination with verticality, the selection traces an investigation of the subject in abstract sculpture and exhibits a subtle drive for aesthetic diversity. For five decades, the artist has cultivated a practice that embeds a formalist rigor with a humanist warmth. The exhibition is marked by an appreciation for abstract signs in three-dimensional space, one which spurs a dialogue with high relief that Kirili views as being a celebration of life, or la joie de vivre. Alluding to sculptor Alberto Giacometti’s "The Forest," the seven iron and copper floor sculptures seen here stand erect, like artisanal topiaries in a “vertical forest.” A raw material tactility emerges from the hammered metal along with a diversity of aesthetic gesture that resists a machine-made uniformity, privileging the idiosyncratic. The “live” bases of these sculptures further refuse homogeneity; for instance, the base of Adam III is made of Hydrocal and Forge of coal. Iron and plaster, coal and iron; the incongruous materiality of these parts reveal the influence of yoni and lingam, Hindu masculine and feminine sculptural elements that harmoniously converge in a symbiotic relationship. Like flesh on bones, the base does not function as a support for, what the artist calls, the “vertical” but as an essential unit that completes it. Alain Kirili is a French-American sculptor born in 1946 in Paris, France. He lives and works in New York City. He has had solo museum exhibitions with the Musee de l’Orangerie, Paris; the Musee Rodin, Paris; and the Brooklyn Museum. Kirili has been included in group exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; MoMA P.S. 1, New York; the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C.; and the Jardin du Palais-Royal, Paris. His work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Centre Pompidou; The Jewish Museum, New York; and the Nasher Sculpture Center among others. Shaun O’Dell was born in 1968 in Beeville, Texas and lives and works in San Francisco. He is a graduate of Stanford University’s MFA Program and has exhibited both nationally and internationally appearing at dOCUMENTA(13), Kassel; The A Foundation, Liverpool; Berkley Art Museum, Berkley; CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco and San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco. His work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the de Young Museum, San Francisco. "Who’s Afraid of Verticality?" will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

Betwixt and Between
Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 19, 2019
Brexit. Global Warming. Immigration. Identity. Fake News …These are among the controversial issues today that exemplify the idea of being betwixt and between - for many, liberating concepts; for others, deeply troubling, perhaps life threatening concepts.

Tom Wesselmann - Perfecting the Process
Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 26, 2019
Davidson Gallery is proud to present Tom Wesselmann: Perfecting the Process, a solo exhibition of paintings, drawings, and sculptural works spanning the entirety of the artist’s acclaimed career. Wesselmann was the consummate craftsman; The final version of all major works was preceded by numerous sketches, drawings, maquettes, and studies. This exhibition – Davidson Gallery’s ninth solo show for the artist – features over two dozen works and many of those works document the numerous steps and incarnations that Wesselmann took and made before the completion of an idea. Perfecting the Process takes a broad look across Wesselmann’s nearly fifty-year career, examining the way certain themes and subjects recur and connect the decades: nudes, and partial nudes consisting of themed works including lips, hands and feet, as well as still-lifes and smoking themes. In particular, attention is given to Wesselmann’s exceptional quality of line, his awareness of color, and the acknowledged influence of his artistic heroes including Henri Matisse, Franz Kline, and Willem DeKooning. Tom Wesselmann was born in Cincinnati, OH, in 1931. He moved to New York City in the 1950s, receiving a degree from the Cooper Union in 1959. In the 1960s, Wesselmann became one of the foremost American Pop artists, working continuously in drawing, painting, assemblage, sculpture, and writing until his death in 2004.

Gary Hume : Destroyed School Paintings
Sep 12, 2019 -- Oct 26, 2019
The paintings were inspired by news photographs of schoolrooms destroyed in recent conflicts in the Middle East. The contrast between the naive rendering and innocent subject matter of the wall decorations and the brutal destruction surrounding them is at the heart of Gary Hume’s new work. Compelled by the distressing poignancy within the found images to bring them out of the news cycle and into the realms of more lasting contemplation through painting, the artist hopes to initiate a deeper, more empathetic experience of the ravages of war. In contrast to the paintings, the sculptures in the exhibition are painted a ghostly white. Hume’s familiar Wonky Wheels, the basis of these works, appear here both restrained and energized by elements suggestive of human interaction.

Hayv Kahraman documents a process of transformation of an obedient object into a mischievous “willful subject”. The space of this metamorphosis is the body that ceases to be a silent emblem of its own suffering, to become a site of agency and empowerment, a decolonial “killjoy” who breaks out of the system of paralyzing oppositions that still define our lives: man/woman, white/colored, human/natural, home/exile. Opening Reception: Thu, Sep 5, 6-8pm.

Mascaras: The Other Faces of Mexico
Sep 05, 2019 -- Oct 26, 2019
Mascaras: The Other Faces of Mexico (September 5 - October 26, 2019) The oldest known wooden Mexican mask is in New York’s American Museum of Natural History carved by an Olmec artisan somewhere between 1200 – 400 BCE. There were undoubtedly others, but wooden artifacts do not last long in Central America.  An early 20th Century mask that has survived is considered to be of venerable age. We are pleased to have many such pieces in MASCARAS: The Other Faces of Mexico at Cavin-Morris Gallery. ? There has not been a major Mexican mask exhibition in New York City since at least the 1970s.  Robert Bishop, then Director of the American Folk Art Museum had asked Cavin-Morris to curate one, but he passed away before the show could be realized. There has been an unfortunate gap in the exposure of this fascinating American art form on the East Coast.    It has taken almost forty years for Cavin-Morris to gather together a collection of masks that would reintroduce this art form to the public in an authentic and qualitatively high presentation.   Mexican masks have canons of form and content but, unlike African or Indonesian masks for example, idiosyncratic styles by artists are accepted.  Whether urban or provincial, a great deal of personal interpretation and improvisation is encouraged.   The masks in this exhibition date from the turn of the 20th Century to the early 1970’s.  They range from variations on classic human types like conquistadors and sacred clowns to bull-devils and anthropomorphic jaguars. For comparison we have also included some Pre-Columbian ceramic and stone heads and faces, including an unusual Olmec stone mask, and a ceramic skull mask from Colima in West Mexico. These masks contain the syncretic history of the Americas, often combining Native American, European, and African iconographies. Some have shamanistic references, and some are purely Colonial. Many similar forms are still being danced across Mexico and the South-Western United States today. We are also delighted to have two photographs in the exhibition by noted photographer Phyllis Galembo from her most recent publication: Mexico Masks/Rituals (Radius Books/D.A.P.)    We view this exhibition as an important introduction to a vital and deep culture, ancient in roots and vital in contemporary times; a truly American version of an ancient art form.

Some Ten Odd Years by Josh Dorman
Aug 29, 2019 -- Nov 07, 2019
SOME TEN ODD YEARS: An Exhibition of Paintings by Josh Dorman. We are excited to present this SACI Study Abroad Alumnus' most recent opere a collection of 11 paintings and 3 drawings entitled Some Ten Odd Years Ago. Josh Dorman’s work focuses on themes regarding the passing of time and how an object’s meaning is altered over time. Dorman's work skirts the line between a technically realist practice in conflict with an almost surrealistic flavor. Artists that appear to be direct influences are Hieronymus Bosch for the obvious correlations with the scale and nuanced intricacies, as well as surrealistic Dali and De Chirico and those of the futurists era. A body of work that is well grounded in past movements, paying tribute to them, while still aiming at creating something new and worthwhile all the same. It bears a compelling weight in terms of depth in terms of legibly micro-narratives, recalling similarities between his work and that of European or Chinese tapestry and Russian iconographic representation. A diverse range of emotional investment can be garnered between the micro and the macro interpretations of his pieces. Stop by the Opening Reception: September 19, 2019 @ 6:00pm Light food and refreshments provided.

Synthetic Souls
Sep 21, 2019 -- Sep 23, 2019
The seed of the experience is science fiction cinema. Using the concepts of desire, fear, pain, and creation the artists show how the world exploits women in a dystopian society. Some of the most detailed aspects of this exhibit are photography and video. Artists, Hasan Ali & Jeremy Baker, have narratively created stunning & dramatic video content featuring their models as Artificial Intelligence. With the assistance of Jerry Hesketh (Apple, Virgin Games), perspectives into a world of sentient AI beings come to life. Through VR technology the artists will showcase their Artificial Intelligence living in a heavenly real world setting. Just like the photography pieces and video, the experience will contrast a live performance in both a real and dark view of a synthetic soul. The VR experience will be available through the exhibition’s full run at the venue. The live installation aspect will showcase a directed performance by Hasan Ali featuring a model bringing art to life. Practical effects created by both Hasan Ali and Jeremy Baker will be applied to the performing artist. The performing artist will express the reality of the blind attempt to domineer sentient life. The story told will be juxtaposition to the perspective within the art. The main goal of this exhibit is to transport you into a cerebral & existential journey that triggers deep thought and an emotion. The music arranged for Synthetic Souls will feature nuanced synthesized sounds that cinematically and emotionally expand the science fiction themed experience. Marcos Garcia of Chico Mann, Antibalas, and Here Lies Man composed the score. Take a peek inside the minds of artists Hasan Ali & Jeremy Baker. These creatives have conceived an exhibit that showcases their love of film, science fiction, technology, and social commentary about where the future is possibly headed. They have approached this exhibit as they would a film narrative. By combining their talents of filmmaking & photography, they plan to transport everyone into a cinematic immersive experience.

Magnificent Emeralds: Fura’s Tears
Sep 26, 2019 -- Dec 30, 2019
If art is an expression of beauty, then the exquisite minerals at the Wilensky gallery are the highest form of aesthetic that nature has to offer. This fall, set in their Chelsea gallery, Wilensky will exhibit the greatest collection of emerald mineral specimens ever assembled. This breathtaking exhibition will embrace the undeniable transformative power that emeralds hold on the human imagination. “Magnificent Emeralds: Fura’s Tears” will open on Thursday, September 26th and run through Monday, December 30th, 2019. “This exhibition is focused on natural emeralds, as found and preserved in specimen and crystal form. By bringing together many of the world’s finest known examples of natural emerald specimens, we can better understand all emerald specimens. Important emerald stones and jewelry can be found in every gem collection around the world. The same cannot be said about exceptional natural emerald specimens. We estimate that there are less than twenty-five in the world that would qualify. Of those twenty-five, half of them are here on exhibit,” says Stuart Wilensky, President of Wilensky. The significance of having half of the world’s finest known emerald specimens all in one place cannot be overstated. This has never happened in the history of mineral collecting. Wilensky invites the viewer to experience wonder and emotionally connect to the profoundly exquisite qualities of emerald specimens. Internationally renowned for building one-of-a-kind collections for many of the world’s most influential collectors, Wilensky is uniquely able to curate and elevate an emerald show of this caliber. Connecting to the mythological tale of Fura and Tena, from the now extinct Muzos indigenous people of the Colombian Andes, the exhibition narrates emeralds through their creation story, where the tears of Fura’s infidelity begot the beloved green rocks. The seductive connection between nature, beauty, legend and art are explored through the mesmerizing green of the specimens.

"Lugar Comun (Common Ground)" by Ruby Rumie and Justine Graham
Oct 02, 2019 -- Nov 02, 2019
Lugar Comun (Common Ground) is a joint project by Colombian artist Ruby Rumie and French-American photographer Justine Graham. The topic of this project by Rumie and Graham is the relationship between Latin American housekeepers and their employers, exploring issues of gender, power, class, and race. Made up of photographs, videos, and interviews with one hundred women between the ages of nineteen and ninety-five, this multidisciplinary project combines art and sociology, seeking to dismantle the hierarchical relationship between these women. The artists examine the inherited colonial prejudices surrounding domestic work and propose new angles for comprehension and social communication. The visual treatment of the women is the same across the board—they are even dressed in the same clothes as an exercise in equality and for the purpose of undermining bigotry. These actions transcend the artistic plane and the piece becomes a symbolic act with real life repercussions. Lugar Comun (Common Ground) has been exhibited at the Museo de Artes Visuales MAVI, Santiago, Chile; The Museum of the Americas, Washington, D.C.; The Cartagena Biennial, Colombia; and Fair., Miami, FL. Ruby Rumie develops projects with political content related to psychology and injustice, referencing particular collectives in questions of territorial inheritance and the role of the socially committed artist. Her works do not merely present critical arguments, but also propose solutions and pave a road of hope for issues that concern her. Justine Graham is a French-American visual artist, photographer and editor working in Chile since 2005. Her artistic work explores photography as a tool for conceptual research through collecting, classifying, and creating community as forms of re-thinking identity. Concurrent with this exhibition is Ruby Rumie 's Divine Breath NYC at La Mama Galleria, New York, from October 4 - 29 at 47 Great Jones Street, New York. Visit www.divinebreathnyc.com for more info. Opening Reception: Tuesday, October 1st from 6-8 p.m. Dates: October 2 - November 2, 2019 For more information: Leslie Garrett at 212-888-3550 or art@nohrahaimegallery.com

Art Transformations From the Longest Sea Voyage in History
Oct 03, 2019 -- Oct 31, 2019
Stowe is a serious discovery. He is a natural born mystic whose long voyage seems to have been an extended religious transcendental experience-and what came out of it are paintings that are quite intriguing. They are not classifiable in any certain way. They seem to live in a borderline, exploring between the psychotic and the transcendental, spiritual experience. These works definitely come out of what the psychoanalyst Romain Roland referred to in 1927 as, coincidentally, the "Oceanic Feeling." They are densely layered and as a body overlap with so many modern concepts in painting. --Donald Kuspit, Dean of American Art Historians, from article by Peter Falk, Discoveries in American Art Reid is the ultimate life performance artist. --Stephen Stux, New York Gallerist The art world is his current voyage. And besides that, wintry Cape Horn is a ride in an amusement park. –Internationally renown art critic and writer, Anthony Haden Guest, Whatever Floats His Boat

PAPER BORDERS
Oct 10, 2019 -- Dec 18, 2019
International Print Center New York is pleased to announce its first two-person exhibition, Paper Borders, which brings into dialogue the works of Emma Nishimura (b. 1982, Toronto) and Tahir Carl Karmali (b. 1987, Nairobi), artists who share a commitment to unearthing historical and ongoing stories of migration, trans-generational memory, and xenophobia. Using the materiality of print and handmade paper, the two- and three-dimensional works in this exhibition speak to cross-cultural and deeply embedded global struggles. Here, the precarity of paper becomes a metaphor for the precarity of place.

JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: LINEAGE: Featuring MATT DEVINE, ANTHONY HUNTER, ADRIANA OLIVER WINTER 2019 Artists’ Reception: Thursday, November 14th, 2019 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by November 8th, 2019 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd Street | New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 | E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com LINEAGE JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present, LINEAGE, an exhibition that focuses attention on the intersection of decorative and functional elements of contour and linear stylization. Addressing the fundamental component of the line within artistic composition, LINEAGE explores the possibilities of perspective, volume, and interaction of planes. Suggesting the line as both a fluid material and conceptual device, these artists highlight their ability to create works that uniquely define the space around them. Using divergent forms of display, artists Matt Devine, Anthony Hunter, and Adriana Oliver’s works compliment one another in color, form, and in their parallel explorations of linear gesture. Merging form and content, their linear constructions exemplify the expressive potential of line. Matt Devine’s sculptures explore lines as a pliable medium and point of departure. Emphasizing the use of line as multidimensional, Devine takes dissected pieces of sheet metal and transforms the industrial materials into organic patterns and shapes. As Devine works with aluminum, steel, and paint, he saves leftover pieces from earlier sculptures to generate the next step in his process, recycling and seamlessly transitioning to the next piece. His minimalist aesthetic and color palette serve to reinforce the strength of the forms, highlighting the inner balance and order within the works. Focusing on line to guide the compositions, Devine investigates the tensions of visual and psychological boundaries, as well the continuation of line through his fluid process. Anthony Hunter’s direct and physical engagement with his materials allows line and color to stand-alone and to function independently of form. Replete with lively and flickering lines, blobs, drips, and drizzles, Hunter creates a defined sense of movement and action. Infusing velocity and improvisation into the artistic process, the resulting linear marks tease the viewers’ eyes with their abrupt punctuations. Creating focal points, the line stylization reflects a tight rein, as he manages the flow with a practiced hand in his chosen, glossy oil-based medium. The contours of these areas, vividly contrasted against his other bold colors, look as much drawn as do the narrow, cursively shaped lines of paint. The resulting abstractions not only generate visual complexity, but the lilt of Hunter’s color and thrust of his line achieve pure graphic energy. With a sharp eye for shape and form, Adriana Oliver transforms familiar shapes into neutral forms open to interpretation. Challenging a traditional flat and rectangular format, Oliver blurs the lines between sculpture and painting. Pushing lines into a new, spatial realm, the cut-out shapes of her panels promote dimensionality while showcasing her beguiling use of color relationships. Working in a reductive palette, as well as simplified line-work, her imagery stands out with her minimalist approach to figuration. In her use of line, hue, intensity and value, the works attain depth and resonance, striking a perfect balance between message and form. These artists will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you're sure to find the right artistic expression.

Beyond the Stars
Feb 13, 2020 -- Mar 28, 2020
BEYOND THE STARS JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present Beyond The Stars, an exhibition of new work by artist collective Cascione & Lusciov at the gallery’s New York location. Comprised of Silvia Cascione and Roman Lusciov, the duo’s new body of sculptural work explores both hardwired and au courant notions of form, line, and the romantic associations tied to outer space. The exhibition title, Beyond The Stars, invites multi-faceted connections between the origin of life and futuristic dimension, while visually translating the immateriality of space and time into streamlined, biomorphic forms. Conceptually focused on objects in motion, their installations, which often involve kinetic sculptures, draw parallels between the sensation of forward propulsion and an unknown, abstract future. Conflating the solidity of their materials with the appearance of a fluid, liquid state, the relationship between volume and space is explored in each sculpture. Channeling the transformations of a star’s shape and color throughout its lifetime, Cascione & Lusciov demonstrate an understanding of how sculpture can serve as a tool of expression for different realities of life. Each work made entirely by hand and unique, the successful manipulation of physical materials such as bronze, steel, and acrylic mirror show an unprecedented sensitivity to the qualities of each medium. Combining clean lines of modernist aesthetics, highly reflective, metallic surfaces paired with organic forms amplify a sense of emotion and dynamicity. Heavily influenced by minimalist and neo-futurist movements, Cascione & Lusciov appropriate techniques from sculpture, design, and goldsmithing within their practice. Modernizing a traditional lost-wax process of bronze casting that can be traced back 6,000 years, the methodology produces poetic juxtaposition between the ancient process and the completed futuristic forms. Stripped of all unnecessary elements, soft curves create a succession of roundness, yielding slick, aerodynamic sculptures. Inspired by the words of Italian astrophysicist Margherita Hack, “All the matter we are made of was built by the stars… So we are truly children of the stars,” Cascione & Lusciov’s sculptures exhibit a belief that with the help of the arts, science and technology can achieve rapid advancement. In that sense, their art is a vision of the future; a vision represented through pure shape, innovative technique, and interdisciplinary collaboration. SILVIA CASCIONE (b. 1979, Milan, Italy) received a BA in Sculpture from Brera Academy of Fine Arts, Italy in 2004, after which she studied Fashion Design at Politecnico di Milano and worked as a designer for several Italian fashion houses. Silvia is also trained in goldsmith’s art and wax modeling. ROMAN LUSCIOV (b. 1983, Izhevsk, Russia) studied at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania, and graduated from the European Institute of Design in 2006. He subsequently worked in the fields of architecture, industrial and interior design.
