Reprinted from Woman Around Town
Saturday, March 8th, 2014 by Mary Gregory on Playing Around
Amel Bennys, Again, 2013
The spring art season opens with top notch art galleries from all over the world bringing some of their best art to New York audiences. Volta is one of the most interesting of the fairs.
What sets it apart from the others is that at VOLTA, each gallery presents a solo exhibition. Rather than packing in whatever work they think might sell, galleries must carefully choose a single arti... [more]
For his first Solo Exhibition at the gallery, Sam Winston will present two projects (Drawing on Memory and Modern Gods) based on memory and the passage of time – both using language as their departure point but in distinctly different ways.
Drawing on Memory is based on a series of real world conversations between the artist and four subjects who have had a unique experience of time. Using only first names, each interview candidly reveals their relationship to the past.
Tam’s is a dialog... [more]

A dancer poses nude, her body cutting a diagonal through a Jamaican living room (Otis... [more]
Sanja Alajbegovic, Editorial Coordinator at I.M.O.W. suggested an interview with Orlonda Uffre feeling that we would have a mutual understanding. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to speak with this artist-philosopher-activist who is not afraid to question the status quo. I am honored to know such an individual, whose wisdom and beauty shines from within. I think that the interview is a fitting and deserving complement to Orlonda Uffre's paintings- her words are thoughtful, confident and... [more]

By Jamillah Wilcox
