Focusing on the unreal, the unseen, and the impossible, this genre offers visions of humanity&rsquo;s mythic past, its unexplored future and, in some cases, its terrifying present. Just as science fiction serves for many as the archetype of postmodern literature with its fascination with the &ldquo;other&rdquo; and the unknown, imaginative realism brings this same narrative to the figurative arts. &nbsp;&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><em>infra:REAL&nbsp;</em>is a group exhibition in the most classical sense, presenting the width and breadth of imaginative realism under a single banner.

Their technical approaches vary, from academic to avant-garde, but all are among the finest realist artists in the world, turning your vision &ldquo;infra-real&rdquo; and giving a glimpse above, below, and beyond the reality that both comforts and restricts us all.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &mdash;Patrick Wilshire, Curator <div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><strong>ABOUT THE CURATOR</strong></div> <div> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Patrick Wilshire</strong>&nbsp;and his wife, Jeannie, have been collecting and studying imaginative realist art for 20 years.

Seascapes were an essential part of the artist&rsquo;s lifelong exploration of psychological optics, light and his keen observations on the nature of field and ground. They were a genre he would revisit throughout his career in various media and guises. Comprised of over 30 works form private lenders and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, the exhibition will include works from the 1960s-1990s. A collaboration between Guild Hall and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation, Roy Lichtenstein: Between Sea and Sky celebrate the artist&rsquo;s abiding relationship with the East End of New York and all that it inspired.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Principal Sponsor:&nbsp;</em></strong><em>Larry Gagosian</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Lead Sponsors:&nbsp;</em></strong><em>Valentino D.

They are meticulously rendered by hand with a ruler and a pen on letter paper&mdash;line by line as if by an erratic ink-jet printer&mdash;and were originally devised for their first presentation with the nearby headquarters of Amazon.com and Microsoft in mind.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">If a machine tried to empathize with and relate itself to organic life, it might see in the printing cycles of these books or the extinctions of the animals on their covers metaphors for its own product lifecycle and that of the different languages running through it that are outlined by O&rsquo;Reilly&rsquo;s series.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition&rsquo;s title is a jargon term for anything that is left over or redundant, employed particularly for superseded, unused technical and electronic hardware and useless, superfluous or dysfunctional elements in computer software. Here, the word comments on the works&rsquo; subjects (and status as remnants from the last exhibition) as well as on material needs implicitly associated with network-based art practices &mdash; like those supported by the exhibition venue TRANSFER in Brooklyn, NY.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As it happens, new regulations are in place as of this year in New York fining the improper disposal of old computers and their peripherals, televisions, fax machines, VCRs, DVD players, printers/scanners, video game consoles, MP3 players, tablets, and small servers. This is a positive development.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The seemingly disembodied immediacy of technological advancement is in no way as immaterial as we are often encouraged to believe. And so it is with materiality in mind that, in addition to presenting works from the earlier exhibition, &ldquo;Cruft&rdquo; will serve as an ad hoc electronic waste collection site.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Visitors are invited to bring e-waste to TRANSFER where it will remain on view parallel to the re-installed drawings for the exhibition&rsquo;s duration. At the close of the exhibition it will be properly removed with adequate care paid to potentially sensitive data still stored on any devices. For guidelines about what is appropriate to dispose of in this way, refer to http://nyc.gov/electronics or email director@transfergallery.com.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">About the Artist :::<br /> <strong>Joshua Caleb Weibley</strong> was born the year O&rsquo;Reilly Media published their first &ldquo;Animal&rdquo; book. He currently works for the online hand-made goods marketplace Etsy in Brooklyn. Weibley&rsquo;s work is included in White Columns&rsquo; artist registry and has most recently been shown at Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery (New York), et al Projects (New York) and Veronica (Seattle) at which works in this exhibition were first presented under the title &ldquo;Colophon&rdquo;. Work in this show has been written about on The Creators Project and (perhaps appropriately enough as it shares a founder with O&rsquo;Reilly Media) on Makezine.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For more information: <a href="http://thebestrevenge.info" target="_blank">http://thebestrevenge.info</a></p> <h4>Opening Reception</h4> <p class="exhibition-event-date">TRANSFER on Saturday, August 8, 7 &ndash; 11 PM</p> <p class="exhibition-event-link"><a href="http://transfergallery.com/2015/06/cruft-joshua-caleb-weibley/#" target="_blank">Info + RSVP</a></p> </div> Fri, 03 Jul 2015 17:05:26 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Gerard & Kelly - Solomon R.

The exhibition rejects the notion that our culture rapidly and inevitably takes us further and further away from real interactions with each other and with our environment. The curator Jasmine Murrell has chosen work that allows for the non-commodifiable elements in art to remind us of the connections between us and our world. This interactive work directly engages the viewer, both visually and through sound and touch. It invites conversations between strangers; the activities in the space are enjoyed and shared.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The Sublime of the Mundane</em> brings together international and U.S. artists; together they will transform the gallery space into a fantastical landscape of tactile, auditory and visual experiences.&nbsp;</p> <h3 style="text-align: justify;">THE ARTISTS:</h3> <p style="text-align: justify;">JISUN BEAK:&nbsp; Based on my observation, the world we live in seems to be constructed by&nbsp;full of ironic and absurd rules of the society. I am interested in how people&nbsp;struggle with these contradictory social systems, rules and cultural stereotypes.&nbsp;As a social spectator as well as a generator of surplus values, I use art as my&nbsp;political speech tool to subvert cultural stereotypes and to squeeze them into&nbsp;intentionally created vulnerable state. It breaks down the authorities between art&nbsp;works and its audiences by producing situations with hidden humors in which spectator can easily participate. - Jisun Beak</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">MALLORY CAIN BREINER:&nbsp; Mallory Cain Breiner makes objects and images that explore the humor, sensuality, tension, violence and absurdity of interactions between human and non-human bodies. For the <em>Sublime of the Mundane</em> exhibition, Breiner will create a reading room in which leisure is porous with unease, and the domestic objects that are generally meant to recede into the background hum with their own vital presence. - Mallory Cain Breiner</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">KEITH CALHOUN AND CHANDRA CALHOUN: coming soon</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">FLORINE DEMOSTHENE: coming soon</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">C. FINLEY:&nbsp; Wallpapered dumpsters transform environmental activism into unexpected beauty. This project is an inquiry into urban waste, free art, and notions of femininity, beauty and domesticity. Inspired by free and accessible art the artist states, "if we see dumpsters as works of art, we have raised consciousness." - C. Finley</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">DOMINIKA KSEL:&nbsp; Dominika Ksel is an interdisciplinary artist and psychonaut working in Brooklyn for the past 15 years. Her work is an ecosystem that gently deconstructs power and materiality while exploring the interstices of consciousness, gender &amp; sexual politics, science and sound.&nbsp; The works are often heuristic participatory experiments that are synthesized through sculpture, video installation, interactive painting and sound based performance. - Dominka Ksel</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">SHELLYNE RODRIGUEZ: &nbsp;My work is located in the spectrum between hope and despair. I&rsquo;m interested in its&nbsp;tension and in how it fluctuates, tracing its manifestation historically through myth and&nbsp;religion. But also, observing how it performs in our present day under the firmament of&nbsp;neoliberalism and late capitalism. I trace these elements through family history,&nbsp;sociohistorical markers, and the aesthetics of disco, soul, and latin boogaloo.<br />Drawings, paintings, sculptures, and found objects form installations that crash highs into&nbsp;lows. Detritus is exalted and the illustrious is pulled into the gutter. This smashing&nbsp;together of elements I view as a gesture rooted in hip-hop culture. In this way, I am able&nbsp;to create moments or spaces that might possess the viewer with the tension found&nbsp;between hope and despair for further inquiry. - Shellyne Rodriguez</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">ANDRE SPRINGER: coming soon</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">RUFUS TUREEN:&nbsp; In the theatre there is something called a Ghost Light, a light that is placed on stage and left on overnight. Its story is rich with superstition. A union safety requirement and a light that the ghosts&rsquo; of past productions can perform by, keeping them from cursing the current production of the living. <br />In my work I explore the idea of becoming. I approach painting as the script for an urgent fiction, its history, like all histories, filled with ghosts. I invest myself in the work like an actor approaching a role, and I present my body as an interactive element, inviting my audience to experience the presence of another and the imaginary space of a painting as one. &nbsp;- Rufus Tureen</p> Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:20:15 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list
