ArtSlant - Closing soon en-us 40 Group Show - WhiteBox - April 24th, 2006 - April 30th, 2006 <p>AsylumNYC was as site-specific investigation into regimes of exclusion.<br /><br />The project invited 10 non-U.S. artists to participate in an exhibition at WHITE BOX in New York. Out of these, two was finally rewarded the legal aid necessary to obtain a 3-year artists visa to the United States.<br /><br />The online application period began on February 7th, 2006 and ended on April 1st, 2006. In this short period, a total of 235 artists from 43 different countries applied for participation. <br /><br />The AsylumNYC exhibition opened at WHITE BOX in Chelsea on Monday, April 24th 2006. From this day to the end of the week, the selected artists were kept in detention in WHITE BOX and were not permitted to leave the gallery.<br /><br />The artists were not allowed to bring any tools or materials with them into the gallery and were only given a notebook, as well as a blue and black pen. For creating their work, they had to rely entirely on the goodwill of gallery visitors and the arrangements they could make with these. <br /><br />This was the set-up for a very intense and interesting week in New York. Interest for the project exceeded all expectations and more than 2.000 visitors came by WHITE BOX to experience things for themselves. <br /><br />Additionally, the extensive media coverage from New York Times, CNN, BBC and numerous other media outlets meant that an estimated 90.000.000 (!) individuals were informed about the AsylumNYC project globally. <br /><br />At the last day of the exhibition, Dusanka Komnenic from Serbia and Montenegro were awarded the free legal services of immigration lawyer Daniel Aharoni, Attorney at Law. Dusanka was selected from the participating artists on the ground that her artistic project managed to break the most mental and visual borders, without actually breaking any of the project rules.<br /><br />Additionally, immigration lawyer Martin C. Liu Associates supported AsylumNYC with pro-bono legal services for yet another artist. Mexican participant Antonio O'Connell Perez Rubio was selected to receive this service.<br /><br />Antonio was not able to physically attend the project in White Box, as he was denied entrance to the United States of America by the official authorities. Nonetheless, Antonio managed to participate from afar, involving visitors in New York City and elsewhere via phone and internet, while by his absence clearly illustrating the situation of many contemporary immigrants.<br /><br /><br />CONTEXT:<br />AsylumNYC was informed by research from the refugee communication-platform:<br /><br />While AsylumHOME aims to actively empower refugees immigrating to Europe, AsylumNYC explores the notion of acceptance needed by the creative worker to be a successful immigrant in the U.S.<br /><br />Echoing restrictions forced upon asylum seekers, foreign artists in the U.S. must be approved by immigration authorities to stay and work. To qualify for a U.S. visa, an artist or any other creative professional have to demonstrate extraordinary ability in the arts as evidenced by awards, critical reviews, or professional affiliations. They must also be able to afford the legal expenses associated with this extensive procedure. <br /><br />Functioning within these processes, AsylumNYC confronted its otherwise privileged participants with their own precarious freedom of movement. <br /><br />The project performed the notion of acceptance needed by both the traditional refugee and the creative worker to be a successful immigrant. Similar in kind to the proof needed by an asylum seeker to be accepted as a "real" refugee by the nation state, the creative worker has to prove her/his worth to the creative community before gaining status as a "real" artist. And just as any other immigrant, the asylum artist will ultimately be dependent on the goodwill of strangers to thrive in their new environment.</p> <p></p> <p>(text courtesy of </p> Sun, 10 Nov 2013 00:13:03 +0000 Andrew Prokos - Museum of the City of New York - December 1st, 2005 - May 1st, 2006 Fri, 07 Mar 2014 13:47:10 +0000 Christian Patterson, Stephen Shore, Lisa Kereszi, Lee Friedlander, Mitch Epstein, Tim Davis - Yancey Richardson Gallery - May 18th, 2006 - June 30th, 2006 Mon, 04 Jan 2010 12:03:33 +0000 Group Show - Stux + Haller - June 8th, 2006 - July 8th, 2006 Tue, 28 Oct 2008 07:43:39 +0000 Group Show - Mitchell-Innes & Nash - 26th St. - June 27th, 2006 - August 11th, 2006 <p>May 10, 2006 – Mitchell-Innes &amp; Nash will present a summer photography exhibition curated by photographers Justine Kurland and Dan Torop in its Chelsea space.

Over the years the gallery’s exhibition program has expanded to include paintings and drawings by artists whose work embraces a montage, or collage aesthetic. Following last year’s <strong><em>COLLAGE: signs &amp; surfaces</em></strong>, the current exhibition builds upon the gallery’s art historical programming by exploring collage in contemporary practice through the work of fifty-two artists:</p> <p><strong>NORA ASLAN – MARC BELL – BRADLEY CASTELLANOS – MICHAEL COOPER – MATTHEW CUSICK – JOHN DIGBY – INDIA EVANS – TONY FITZPATRICK – ADAM FOWLER – JOHN FRASER – RICHARD GALPIN – MARIETTA GANAPIN – GINNIE GARDINER – ARTURO HERRERA – LESLIE HIRST – NICK HOLLIDAY – IMI HWANGBO – MARCUS KENNEY – VIVIENNE KOORLAND -- THOMAS LANIGAN-SCHMIDT – LANCE LETSCHER – ANTONIO MERINERO – JERRY MISCHAK – WANGECHI MUTU – PHILIP NAUDE – SIMON NEVILLE – AARON NOBLE – MICHAEL OATMAN – TONY OURSLER – JAVIER PINON – MAC PREMO – ANTONIO A.

WILDE</strong></p> <p><strong><em>THE NEW COLLAGE</em></strong> explores the ways in which contemporary artists have increasingly drawn upon and expanded the traditions laid down through the preceding century. In part, this renewed interest in collage has been bolstered by an increased critical focus on drawings and works on paper, a “trend” whose momentum has found validation in both the scholarly and commercial branches of the art world. The “new collage” is without question a more inclusive field, one in which cutting and pasting is no longer a revolutionary act in itself, but rather a natural expression of daily experience. As we now live in a world in which information and imagery comes to us in layers and/or fragments, it is only natural that our visual culture should reflect this. In looking at the artists in the exhibition, what is immediately apparent is the broad range of styles and processes that define their aesthetics. The new collage has come to include every conceivable material and method, from traditional cut and paste to the use of trompe l'oeil, photomontage and digital layering, crossing every stylistic and conceptual boundary. While the Modernist period saw only a handful of full-fledged collagists, numerous artists working today have made collage their primary visual language, expanding the field and challenging our ways of looking.</p> <p><strong>A full-color catalogue will accompany the exhibition.</strong></p> Sat, 13 Oct 2012 17:15:41 +0000 Group Show - The Fireplace Project - July 29th, 2006 - August 22nd, 2006 Sun, 17 Aug 2014 02:17:50 +0000 Gulgun Aliriza - Bowery Gallery - August 1st, 2006 - August 25th, 2006 Sat, 15 Oct 2011 08:46:57 +0000 Stephen j Shanabrook - The Drawing Center - September 1st, 2006 - September 1st, 2006 Tue, 17 Feb 2009 16:23:58 +0000 Group Show - Stux + Haller - July 20th, 2006 - September 9th, 2006 Mon, 27 Oct 2008 02:53:39 +0000 Diego Medina - Queens Museum of Art - July 21st, 2006 - September 17th, 2006 <p>The Queens Museum dedicated a specific budget of $300 for production of the work. <br /><br />What can I do in daily life with $300? <br /><br />-Two weeks worth of groceries<br />-One-third of a month's rent<br />-Four months worth of metrocard<br />-Fill up the gas tank seven times<br />-Pay four months worth of cellular phone bills<br />-Eat sushi ten times<br />-Go out dancing on Roosevelt Avenue twice<br />-Go to the beach on three Saturdays<br />-Buy one pair of jeans, or one pair of shoes, or four shirts, or one jacket<br />-Buy a small digital camera<br />-Buy an iPod without accessories <br /><br />I decided to buy $300 worth of wood and make a sculpture with it.
