The first opening reception is Thursday evening, July 14, from 5-8 pm; a second reception is scheduled for Saturday, July 16, 2-5 pm.</strong></p> <p><strong>Members of Atlantic Gallery selected outside artists whose works they admired to be guest exhibitors </strong>in this broadly inclusive show of small, modestly-priced works. 108 artists are represented; their works include sculpture, painting, drawing and collage, each created within a challenging 12 by 12 by 12 inch format.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 24 Jun 2016 18:09:32 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Carolyn Salas, Ria Roberts, Mia Goyette, Michelle Grabner, Carson Fisk-Vittori, Rachel Debuque, Catherine Czacki, Carolyn Carr, Becca Albee - CUE Art Foundation - July 16th - August 20th <p>CUE Art Foundation is pleased to announce&nbsp;<em><a href="http://cueartfoundation.org/radical-plastic" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Radical Plastic</a></em>, a group exhibition featuring artists who employ formal visual languages to address more human contexts including the problematics of bodies and gender-based constructs.&nbsp;<em>Radical Plastic</em>&nbsp;is an opportunity to mediate on the idea of in-between-ness, and what it means to be in the middle of something as each artist proves adept at navigating fluid and liminal areas.</p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, sans-serif;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><strong>Becca Albee&rsquo;s&nbsp;</strong>work<strong>&nbsp;</strong>navigates between prescriptions of color as relating to the body, gender, and space, and looking at color theory as a lens to confuse those constructs.&nbsp;On view is Albee&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>Radical Feminist Therapy</em>&nbsp;series, which looks at Bonnie Burstow's&nbsp;<em>Radical Feminist Therapy: &nbsp;Working in the Context of Violence</em>&nbsp;(published in 1992) as point of departure.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Carolyn Carr&rsquo;s</strong>&nbsp;<em>A Photographer&rsquo;s Studio and the Problems of Posing</em>, takes its title from a William Mortensen book and utilizes a store-bought drop cloth painted with red clay sourced from the Antebellum Trail as conceptual and literal backdrop for her photography studio room installation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Catherine Czacki&rsquo;s</strong>&nbsp;sculptural work,&nbsp;<em>BB</em>, is an anti-bed bug mattress cover re-imagined as a slumping, hanging sculpture&ndash;&ndash;prompting connotations to porousness, desire, possession, the&nbsp;still life<em>&nbsp;</em>and the establishing of physical boundaries between self and other.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Rachel Debuque</strong>&nbsp;creates large scale, candy colored sets that both challenge and reflect pop cultural tedium.&nbsp;Within her sets, constructed objects act as molded simulacra, which offer an opportunity to give them new meaning.<em>&nbsp;</em><em>Glisten</em>, a new work commissioned by CUE, is a performance installation that features a muscular, female athlete in an &ldquo;exercise room,&rdquo; who is performing a workout regime.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Carson Fisk-Vittori</strong>&nbsp;constructs environments integrating images, artifacts and flora to analyze the complex interactions between humans, the dynamic landscape and its ecosystems. Her current body of work,&nbsp;<em>Disturbance Ecology</em>, brings together an ecosystem of hypothetical weather machines, landscaping scenarios, and animal repellants.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Mia Goyette's</strong>&nbsp;work explores a potential future by creating a &ldquo;hybrid landscape&rdquo; from the detritus of human consumption. Wall-mounted sculptures dramatize and exaggerate waste streams created by simple domestic systems such as decorative window box flowers and their contained water run-off trays.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Michelle Grabner&nbsp;</strong>is driven by a consistent negotiation with the forms that qualify &lsquo;domesticity&rsquo; through her &ldquo;home base.&rdquo; On view are a selection of her gingham inkjet prints, works that reinforce her&nbsp;long-form practice of copying and translating gingham patterns uniting the body (hand) with the mind (commentary) in an almost coach-and-player like fashion.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Ria Roberts&nbsp;</strong>is a graphic designer and organizer. Occupying the store-front like gallery of the CUE space, Ria presents a bookshelf titled&nbsp;<em>Design Within Reach</em>, made from&nbsp;discarded materials from the Metropolitan Museum of Art (where she is&nbsp;employed) and featuring&nbsp;newly released&nbsp;issues of&nbsp;<em>Oikos&nbsp;</em>and&nbsp;<em>Methods</em>&nbsp;alongside&nbsp;<em>Bittersweet</em>, a commissioned natural scent by Tatiana Godoy Bentacur,&nbsp;jewelry by Sarah Shikama, swimwear by Mia Lindquist, and ceramics by Lauren Francescone.<strong><br /><br /></strong></p> <p><strong>Carolyn Salas'</strong>&nbsp;abstract sculptures are no doubt formal, but also suggestively human-scaled. Salas considers the physical installation of her works carefully, so they almost imply and build anthropomorphic conversations.&nbsp;Her most recent body of work utilizes the mold-making and casting process to create a sculptural installation on a large platform.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 24 Jun 2016 17:12:02 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Storefront for Art and Architecture - July 15th - September 2nd <p><strong>July 15th &ndash; September 2nd, 2016</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>July 14th Exhibition Opening</strong></p> <p>6 &ndash; 7 pm: Press and Members Preview&nbsp;<a href="mailto:aa@storefrontnews.org?subject=Press%20%26%20Members%20Preview%20RSVP%3A%20Sharing%20Models%3A%20Manhattanisms" shape="rect" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[RSVP]</a></p> <p>7 &ndash; 9 pm: Public Opening&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/250011338706305/" shape="rect" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[RSVP]</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div dir="ltr">We are experiencing the emergence of a culture that is marked by a return to, redefinition, and expansion of the notion of the commons.

In the artist&rsquo;s words, &ldquo;Prints are direct. It&rsquo;s very freeing to work so directly. There is an element of immediacy about it, or there should be. In my hands it often isn&rsquo;t because I tend to be difficult to satisfy in terms of getting it the way I want it.&rdquo;&nbsp; In his prints, Puryear uses line to investigate a form&rsquo;s potential, whether schematic and minimal as in <em>Untitled VI (State I)&nbsp;</em>and<em>&nbsp;Untitled VI (State II)</em>, 2012, or dense and volumetric in his description of the narrative forms in <em>Black Cart</em>&nbsp;and <em>Phrygian</em>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Puryear&rsquo;s graphic work is currently the subject of <em>Multiple Dimensions</em>, a traveling exhibition organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, which traveled to the Morgan Library &amp; Museum, New York and opens May 27th at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC.</p> Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:18:24 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Queer Thoughts - June 29th - July 31st Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:05:08 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Diana Cooper, Torkwase Dyson, Alexandra Gorczynski, Hugh Hayden, Bernard Kirschenbaum, Austin Lee, Anton Perich, William Powhida - Postmasters - June 24th - August 6th <p style="text-align: justify;">Is sex more intense while blindfolded?<br /><br /> Does the elimination of one sense amplify the others?<br /> What happens to an art exhibition if one ever-present component is taken away?<br /> What happens if you ask artists not to use color?<br /> How does it impact creative process and perception?<br /> <br /> The artworks in <em>Grayscale</em> are all black and white.

Perich's black and white portraits created with his electric painting machine and his 1973/74 video "Muhammad Ali: The Lost and Found" are presented along Bernard Kirschenbaum, an early adopter of computer technology whose works explore geometry, scale, patterns and randomness. A group of his sequential drawings and a layered plexiglas sculpture "Entropy" (1996) will be on view.<br /><br /> In dialogue with Perich and Kirschenbaum, six younger artists in the second gallery engage in today's reverberations of Pop, Minimalism and current hotspots of content and form. Their works range from data visualizations of slave auctions sites (<strong>Dyson</strong>) to text based political charts (<strong>Powhida</strong>), expressive air brush portraits (<strong>Lee</strong>), resin and latex body impressions (<strong>Hayden</strong>), painterly digital prints (<strong>Gorczynski</strong>), and multimaterial abstract compositions (<strong>Cooper</strong>).<br /><br /> The color is missing, but do we really miss it?<br /> Isn't sex more intense while blindfolded?</p> Thu, 23 Jun 2016 16:03:18 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Phoenix Gallery - June 21st - June 29th <p style="text-align: justify;">Madatart an art promotion company announces the Georgian artists group exhibition at Phoenix Gallery, Chelsea, New York. &nbsp;10 different but equally incredible Georgian painters and sculptors will be participating in the exhibition.

The show opens Friday, June 24th and will remain on view until Friday, August 5th.<br /> <br /> Discourse on contemporary painting has recently taken a turn toward technological properties, neoliberal politics, and &lsquo;market flipping&rsquo;. The term &ldquo;Zombie Abstraction&rdquo; was coined as a comment on &ldquo;process fetish&rdquo; and the state of a perceived art market deemed cynical in nature. However, could this be a misconception? Are painters indeed trying to impress an audience with their market savvy and skill in manipulating media? Achim Hochd&ouml;rfer, director of the Brandhorst Museum, Munich, writes in his essay, &ldquo;How the World Came in&rdquo;:<br /> <br /> "The essence of painting is no longer defined by the manual application of paint onto canvas or some other support; rather it manifests itself in the fact that paintings are no longer understood as self-contained, hermetically sealed objects but are instead hubs of much larger referential networks." (2016)<br /> <br /> Robert Rauschenberg&rsquo;s work might be the matrix for Hochd&ouml;rfer&rsquo;s assessment; his influence is certainly ubiquitous in contemporary art. Nonetheless, consideration can also be placed on the self-referential nature of paintings&mdash;whether or not they attempt to articulate their own <em>constructedness</em> as motif and motivation. Art historian David Joselit, co-curator of Painting 2.0, writes in an essay on Jacqueline Humphries that her affective gesture is a &ldquo;picture&rdquo;, a representation of itself. <em>Fine Young Cannibals</em> comprises a group of artists who further this discussion: Christopher Wool&rsquo;s painting (2007) derives from various technical maneuvers to re-stage (or blow-up) an earlier drawing; Rudolf Stingel&rsquo;s do-it-yourself painting (2015) demystifies the creative act altogether, while Martin Kippenberger&rsquo;s rubber paintings include cast protrusions of earlier painting motives (a revamping in 3D from 1991). Wade Guyton&rsquo;s inkjet printer is no more a sophisticated tool than Laura Owens&rsquo; silkscreen, but it allows him to cannibalize images from earlier installations and re-charge (or empty out) their now legendary status. Laura Owens intersects newspaper clippings with heavy brush marks, too disproportionally large to be mistaken for subjective expressivity; Pieter Schoolwerth&rsquo;s elaborate process of making paintings incorporates studio photography, digital printing on canvas (with heavy distortions) and oil paint, almost like a &lsquo;corrective&rsquo; gesture&mdash;the artist&rsquo;s hand; Albert Oehlen&rsquo;s computer pictures follow a similar logic&mdash;hybrids all in print and paint.<br /> <br /> It would be as problematic to reduce these artists to mere agents in some conspiracy, as it would be ridiculous to blame de Kooning for generic abstract paintings in the 1950s and 1960s. Furthermore, abstraction in Cheyney Thompson&rsquo;s work is not a genre in or for itself; his paintings address divisions of labor, time and the body as much as the fundamentally opposite, Heimo Zobernig, identifies the inherent theatricality of making paintings. Jorge Pardo takes his self-referential play to another extreme by attaching an iPad onto the surface that connects the viewer with his studio in Merida, Mexico.<br /> <br /> As divergent as these artists are (rarely exhibiting together), they engage the artifice of their paintings&mdash;all mechanisms, tools and attributes are laid bare in order to open up a relevant discourse on painting, abstract or representational, analog or digitally processed: what constitutes a painting today and how vital is that &lsquo;painting-body&rsquo;?</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Petzel Gallery is located at 456 West 18th Street.
