ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/show en-us 40 Zoe Leonard - MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) - June 27th - August 30th <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Analogue</em>, by Zoe Leonard (American, b. 1961), is a landmark project comprising 412 photographs conceived over the course of a decade. Displayed in serial grids and organized into 25 chapters,<em>Analogue</em>&nbsp;documents the eclipsed texture of 20th-century urban life as seen in vanishing mom-and-pop stores and the simultaneous emergence of the global rag trade. Leonard took her own New York neighborhood, Manhattan&rsquo;s Lower East Side, as a point of departure in the late 1990s. She then followed the circulation of recycled merchandise&mdash;used clothing, discarded advertisements, and the old technology of Kodak camera shops&mdash;to far-flung markets in Africa, Eastern Europe, Cuba, Mexico, and the Middle East.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The disappearing storefronts and neglected products are echoed in the obsolete technology the artist used to reproduce them: a vintage 1940s Rolleiflex camera, a tool &ldquo;left over from the mechanical age,&rdquo; as Leonard put it, along with gelatin silver and chromogenic printing processes. Tapping the traditions of documentary and conceptual photography,&nbsp;<em>Analogue</em>&nbsp;is positioned in the genealogy of grand visual archives that extends from Eug&egrave;ne Atget&rsquo;s compendium of Paris to Martha Rosler&rsquo;s photo-text work on New York&rsquo;s Bowery. Leonard&rsquo;s project is an urgent document and a poetic allegory of globalization that reveals the circulation of goods and the homogenization of diverse geographical locations in the 21st century.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The exhibition is organized by Roxana Marcoci, Senior Curator, with Drew Sawyer, Beaumont and Nancy Newhall Curatorial Fellow, Department of Photography.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The exhibition is made possible by The Modern Women&rsquo;s Fund.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> Sat, 04 Jul 2015 17:50:30 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Zuzanna Czebatul - Ludlow 38 - June 28th - July 31st <p style="text-align: justify;">MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38 is pleased to present the first US solo exhibition by&nbsp;<a href="http://www.zzzzcccczzzz.com/" target="_blank">Zuzanna Czebatul</a>. For Ludlow 38, the artist has developed a floor piece that deals with the exhibition space and its history.&nbsp;<em>Opus Sectile</em>&nbsp;originated in dialog with the permanently installed display&nbsp;<em>Remodel</em>, which was conceived by artist Martin Beck in 2011, is a reflection about movement through social and experienced spaces. Taking the relationship between the individual and space as a starting point, in this work Czebatul addresses the history of architecture and its brittle lines in the present. The exhibition will be on view through July 31.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The title&nbsp;<em>Opus Sectile</em>&nbsp;(Engl. &ldquo;cut work&rdquo;) is borrowed from Latin and refers to an artistic technique that was practiced primarily in ancient Roman times to inlay floors with fine marble, mother-of-pearl, or cut glass. Unlike mosaics, the stones for an opus sectile are cut to generous shapes, which then are positioned piece by piece as the subject. The best known historical references include the finds in Villa Adriana, Herculaneum, and Palazzo Massimo alle Terme. The rooms of these imposing villas were not only decorated with fine sculptures, statues, and busts, but also with decorative mosaics and murals. In ancient times, sculpture and architecture formed a synergetic unit designed for a harmonious combined effect; the goal was to design space as a whole.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Czebatul&rsquo;s engagement with sculptural architecture transports this idea to the present. At Ludlow 38, she has transformed the floor into an artistic element, producing an extensive opus sectile and thus redefining movement through the exhibition space. The formal design of the floor is based on dynamic lines that create a horizontal pattern. The individual panels have a marbled quality created in a special manufacturing process by which Czebatul prepares a concrete-pigment mixture that slowly hardens in poured molds. These panels are fastened to each other on the floor and intercede with the&nbsp;<em>Remodel</em>display in their overall appearance. At the same time the floor appears to be part of a larger whole, a fragment of modern architecture that seemingly runs behind the walls of the exhibition space.&nbsp;<em>Opus Sectile</em>&nbsp;is based on ideas of site-specificity and opens up a conceptual space where the potential and the continuous transformation of urban architecture can be renegotiated.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.zzzzcccczzzz.com/cv.html" target="_blank">Zuzanna Czebatul&nbsp;</a>(born in 1986, Miedzyszecz) lives and works in New York. She graduated from the St&auml;delschule, Frankfurt/Main in 2013. She is currently working towards her MFA at Hunter College, New York, as Fulbright Fellow. She is also a recipient of the 2015 SOMA Scholarship, Mexico City. Czebatul works as a sculptor, producing her own materials, and creating works that merge the differentiation between commercial product and artistic production. Her work is influenced by the aesthetics of ancient sculptures, modern forms of display and presentation, as well as the club culture of the 1990s. Czebatul has had solo exhibitions at Gillmeier Rech, Berlin; Opelvillen R&uuml;sselsheim; and 1822-Forum, Frankfurt/Main. Recently, her work was presented in group exhibitions at Center, Berlin;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.galerie1m3.com/gallery.htm" target="_blank">1m3</a>, Lausanne; Heidelberger Kunstverein; and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.villaromana.org/front_content.php?idcat=69&amp;idart=337&amp;lang=2" target="_blank">Villa Romana</a>, Florence. Later this year, she will have solo exhibitions at&nbsp;<a href="http://badreputation.co/" target="_blank">Bad Reputation</a>, Los Angeles, and&nbsp;<a href="http://gillmeierrech.com/index.php/zuzanna-czebatul/" target="_blank">Gillmeier Rech</a>, Berlin.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition is made possible with generous support of&nbsp;<a href="http://www.sistrom.com/o_kompanii?lang=2" target="_blank">Sistrom</a>.</p> Sat, 04 Jul 2015 17:09:25 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Handiedan, Mimi Scholz, Sandra Chevrier - Jonathan LeVine Gallery - 529 W. 20th - June 27th - July 25th <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present&nbsp;<em><strong>Trifecta</strong></em>, a group exhibition curated by&nbsp;<strong>Yasha Young</strong>&nbsp;featuring works by&nbsp;<strong>Handiedan</strong>,&nbsp;<strong>Mimi Scholz</strong>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<strong>Sandra Chevrier</strong>. In conjunction with<em>Trifecta</em>, each of the artists will release a limited-edition print. Click&nbsp;<strong><a href="https://t.e2ma.net/click/12lzg/9gepth/x7uqqc" target="_blank">HERE</a></strong>&nbsp;for print release details. &nbsp; &nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><em>&nbsp;</em></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><em>Trifecta</em>&nbsp;brings together three international female artists who are at the forefront of a contemporary art movement, reimagining representations of women. Through an array of media, Handiedan, Scholz and Chevrier use the female figure as their subject and are strong voices for a new generation of artists. The curator Yasha Young states,&nbsp;<em>&ldquo;This exhibition addresses the fact that art created by women has been historically dismissed as craft as opposed to fine art, affecting the development of women in art throughout history. I would like to open doors for women artists and encourage them to step out and up.&rdquo;&nbsp;</em></div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">Dutch artist<strong>&nbsp;<a href="https://t.e2ma.net/click/12lzg/9gepth/d0vqqc" target="_blank">Handiedan</a></strong>&nbsp;pushes mixed-media collage to a higher level by digitally creating classic female pin-ups using ornamental components such as&nbsp;currencies, sheet music and her own cartoon drawings. Handiedan rebuilds these digital designs into multi-layered hand-cut collages that end up with a distinctive three-dimensional quality. Her pin-ups look like something between an orientally adorned femme fatale from a noir film, a sexually joyful pin-up from a 1950&rsquo;s calendar and a tattooed rockabilly girl. Each work is a treasure trove of symbols, with a focus on cosmology, Eastern philosophy and sacred geometries.&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><strong>&nbsp;</strong></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><strong><a href="https://t.e2ma.net/click/12lzg/9gepth/tswqqc" target="_blank">Mimi Scholz</a></strong>&nbsp;is based in Berlin and creates digital paintings that sarcastically comment on clich&eacute;s regarding the female psyche and sexuality. Starting with a detailed sketch and then using a tablet to add multiple layers of color, her compositions are printed on canvas and have an airbrushed quality that closely resembles oil painting. Known for her subject matter of &ldquo;unpredictable women with attitude&rdquo; and often accompanied by strange creatures, her works are set in a manically imagined world where the lines between good and evil, sane and insane are blurred.&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Montreal-based artist&nbsp;<strong><a href="https://t.e2ma.net/click/12lzg/9gepth/9kxqqc" target="_blank">Sandra Chevrier</a></strong>&nbsp;merges painting and collage in works that reflect upon the self-imposed limitations within our world and the underlying tragedy of oppressed female identity. In her series&nbsp;<em>Cages</em>, finely hand-painted portraits of women are masked with pages from comic books, symbolizing the struggle of having to uphold unrealistic expectations of beauty and perfection. By imposing these strict limitations, society is placing women in prisons of identity and asking them to become superheroes. In the greater body of her work, the images used within 'cages' range from scenes of conflict, triumph and defeat. Often focusing on the latter, the artist highlights the fragility of the superhero, their personal weaknesses and exposes the humanity within the superhuman. <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>Yasha Young</strong>&nbsp;sees international curatorial collaborations to be the natural progression from her roots at Strychnin Gallery, which she founded in 1998 with locations in London, New York and Berlin. With over a decade of experience as a producer, Young collaborates with artists on independent projects for motion picture companies, record labels, auction houses and publishing companies. In 2013, Young conceptualized&nbsp;<a href="https://t.e2ma.net/click/12lzg/9gepth/pdyqqc" target="_blank">Urban Nation Berlin</a>, an initiative of the Berliner Leben Foundation that supports artists with a strong emphasis on urban contemporary art. As the Executive Director of UN, Young developed ProjectM and OneWall, programs interested in raising social awareness and reclaiming cities through exchanges between artists and communities.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> Sat, 04 Jul 2015 16:59:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Matthew Marks Gallery - 24th St. - July 8th 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Please join us for a panel discussion and book signing with Hairy Who artists Jim Falconer, Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, Suellen Rocca, and Karl Wirsum at 523 West 24th Street on&nbsp;Wednesday, July 8, at6:30 PM&nbsp;to celebrate the release of&nbsp;<a href="http://ennouncement.exhibit-e.com/t/y-l-dlhtdhk-siukjkkij-t/" target="_blank"><strong>The Collected Hairy Who Publications 1966&ndash;1969</strong></a>, published by Matthew Marks Gallery.&nbsp;<br /><br /><strong>Panelists:<br />Jim Falconer<br />Art Green<br />Gladys Nilsson<br />Suellen Rocca<br />Karl Wirsum&nbsp;<br /><br />Moderated by Dan Nadel</strong></p> Sat, 04 Jul 2015 08:47:53 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Jacob Aue Sobol - Yossi Milo Gallery - July 16th - August 28th <p style="text-align: justify;">Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to present <cite>Arrivals and Departures</cite>, a series of photographs by Danish artist Jacob Aue Sobol, taken along the course of the Trans-Siberian Railway. The exhibition of nearly sixty 20&rdquo; x 24&rdquo; gelatin silver prints from the artist&rsquo;s most recent body of work will open on Thursday, July 16, and close on Friday, August 28 with a reception for the artist on Thursday, July 16, 5:00 &ndash; 8:00 pm. This is the artist&rsquo;s second exhibition at the gallery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><cite>Arrivals and Departures</cite> chronicles Jacob Aue Sobol&rsquo;s travels across the Asian continent by train during 2012-2014, with stops in Moscow, Russia; Ulan Batar, Mongolia and Beijing, China, and numerous rural communities along the way. During three separate month-long trips, Sobol photographed the changing landscape from his window seat, as well as encounters with inhabitants of the locations where he disembarked. Using the camera as a tool to create contact, closeness and intimacy, Sobol&rsquo;s approach to photography is personal. His voyage along the Trans-Siberian Railway was, he says &ldquo;an investigation of the emotional states that control us, inspire us, and keep us moving.&rdquo; The images capture life&rsquo;s complexities: people, places and the relationships between them.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sobol shoots in black and white, creating stark visual and emotional contrasts. Using a digital camera for the first time, but retaining the tight cropping and grainy imagery that characterize his <cite>Sabine</cite> and <cite>I,Tokyo</cite> series, the photographs are intense and immediate records of his subjects. Young couples in bed, animals traversing icy fields, stark corners of temporary lodgings are all depicted without reference to a specific place or time, reflecting the inter- connected, universal story that Sobol strives to tell.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jacob Aue Sobol&rsquo;s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Museet for Fotokunst, Odense, Denmark; Rencontres D&rsquo;Arles, Arles, France; Fotografisk Center, Copenhagen, Denmark; C/O Berlin, Germany; ArtScience Museum, Singapore and in group exhibitions internationally, including <cite>Face of Our Time</cite> at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2011). His publications include <cite>VEINS: Anders Petersen and Jacob Aue Sobol</cite> (2013); <cite>Avec Toi</cite> (2013); <cite>Arrivals &amp; Departures</cite> (2012); <cite>I, Tokyo</cite> (2008); <cite>Sabine</cite> (2004). Sobol studied at the European Film College and Fatamorgana, Danish School of Documentary and Art Photography. He was born in Denmark in 1976 and grew up in Br&oslash;ndby Strand. He currently lives and works in Copenhagen.</p> Fri, 03 Jul 2015 17:08:18 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Joshua Caleb Weibley - TRANSFER - August 8th - September 19th <div id="exhibition-description"> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong class="name">TRANSFER is pleased to present <em>&lsquo;CRUFT&rsquo;</em></strong>, an exhibition of drawings and electronic waste by Joshua Caleb Weibley.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;CRUFT&rdquo; features drawings that were first exhibited in Seattle, WA depicting industry-standard guides to programs and coding languages (specifically, drawings of O&rsquo;Reilly Media&rsquo;s &ldquo;Animal&rdquo; books series). 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 17:05:24 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Group Show - Society of Illustrators - July 7th - July 25th <div style="text-align: justify;">The Society of Illustrators is pleased to present the first part of the two-part annual Comic and Cartoon Art Exhibit. <a title="Voted on by a prestigious group of professionals" href="http://www.societyillustrators.org/WorkArea/linkit.aspx?LinkIdentifier=id&amp;ItemID=12353" target="_blank">Voted on by a prestigious group of professionals</a> including publishers, editors, and artists, this year&rsquo;s show features work by masters in the field alongside talented newcomers.<br /><br />Gold and Silver medals are awarded to top pieces displaying high-quality technique, a strong narrative, and an interesting composition. <a title="An Opening Reception and Awards Presentation" href="http://www.societyillustrators.org/WorkArea/linkit.aspx?LinkIdentifier=id&amp;ItemID=12579" target="_blank">An Opening Reception and Awards Presentation</a> for all medal winners will take place on Friday, June 19th beginning at 6PM at the Society of Illustrators.<br /><br />Work featured in the Long Form Category include art created for graphic novels and comics books that are longer than 40 pages.

Our contemporary moment is one of the&nbsp;<em>network society</em>, in which our increasingly mediated experience of &lsquo;the natural world&rsquo; is blurred between the virtual and the real.&nbsp;<em>Organic Situation</em> offers varying perspectives on the&nbsp;interdependent roles of biology and technology in shaping perception, experience, and creative production.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Construing nature through language, image, and speech act, Paul Ram&iacute;rez Jonas mounts a grid of 165 printed sheets of paper to form <em>Paper Moon (I Create as I Speak) </em>(2008). A single excerpted sheet of the text reading &lsquo;I create as I speak&rsquo; rests on a lectern, inviting an incantation.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Two paintings by Denise Kupferschmidt draw on advertising, architecture and design elements from the early-20th Century to render &lsquo;universal&rsquo; figures against graphic imagery of urban geometries.&nbsp;Peter Scott&rsquo;s <em>High Line Billboard</em> (2015) offers a telling view of visitors framed by a now-iconic architectural feature on the local High Line park. Zo&euml; Ghertner&rsquo;s <em>False Fronts</em> diptych captures the aspirational fa&ccedil;ades of the rural American West.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Assembling topologies out of discarded advertisement vinyl, Kelly Jazvac&rsquo;s sculptural works coax new questions about landscape and disposability. Resembling natural rock formations, the digital refuse lumps of Tyler Coburn&rsquo;s <em>Waste Management </em>(2013-14) memorialize technological byproducts.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photographs from Margaret Honda&rsquo;s series&nbsp;<em>Les animaux du Mus&eacute;um national d&rsquo;Histoire naturelle, Paris</em> (2005- 2007) present elusive images of threatened or extinct specimens. Also referencing <em>nature morte</em>, the sculptures of Jonathan Bruce Williams push the living dead into stereoscopic focus.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A grid of oil paintings by Peter Dreher depicts light recorded at regular intervals on one alpine ridge over several days&rsquo; time. Also in line with German Romanticism, Miljohn Ruperto&rsquo;s lenticular photograph <em>Do Your Best</em>&nbsp;(2014) attempts to convey Caspar David Friedrich&rsquo;sseminal painting<em>, The Sea of Ice </em>(1823-1824) in a newer medium.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Trading in the visual language of myths, rituals, dreams, and photographic documentation, Geoffrey Hendricks&rsquo;s Fluxus headstand performances invert the body&rsquo;s relationship to land, sea, and sky.
