ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/show en-us 40 Ruby Silvious - Atlantic Gallery - September 6th - October 1st <p>Atlantic Gallery will present an exhibition of new works by artist and graphic designer Ruby Silvious from September 6 through October 1. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, September 8, from 5 pm to 8 pm. The exhibit will feature select paintings created for a new book by Ms. Silvious, 363 Days of Tea: A Visual Journal on Used Tea Bags,&nbsp;to be released in the Fall of this year.</p> <p>The paintings were created on used tea bags, a medium that the artist discovered while experimenting with diverse recycled materials as her canvas, among them pistachio shells and eggshells. Silvious began saving tea bags from her morning tea, cleaning out the contents, and setting the empty bags on a paper towel to dry. Some bags were opened out flat, the shape becoming an elongated rectangle with torn edges. Others were emptied without dismantling the structure of the bag, leaving the tag and staple intact.</p> <p>&ldquo;I love to paint random subjects that we may all encounter in our daily lives, like a sweater draped on a hanger, tea cups, wine bottles, a bowl of rice, kids at play. Of course, my journeys in Europe and Asia always bring a fresh wave of inspiration to my work, and each trip I make may spark a new focus, a new approach.&rdquo; A recent month-long residency at Studio Kura in Fukuoka, Japan was especially productive.</p> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 20:42:03 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Bob Kolbrener - Causey Contemporary - November 9th - December 11th Wed, 27 Jul 2016 19:47:05 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Rosallee O. Isaly - Atlantic Gallery - September 6th - October 1st <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Atlantic Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Rosalee O. Isaly entitled "Odyssey". These works tell the story of James Joyce's Ulysses which was inspired by the epic poem of Homer. Also, the word odyssey has come to refer to an epic voyage or task such as that taken by Ulysses, Leopold Bloom, and perhaps my own.</p> <p>I would like to dedicate this exhibit to my father, John Louis O'Hanley, who inspired me to study the classics and read James Joyce to us at the dinner table.</p> <p>Rosalee O. Isaly lives in New York City. She earned a BA from Loyola University in Chicago and an MFA from The School of Visual Arts in New York City.</p> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:51:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Katie Paterson - James Cohan Gallery - Lower East Side - September 16th - October 16th Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:17:44 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Xu Zhen - James Cohan Gallery - September 8th - October 8th Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:17:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Dan Schein - Mike Weiss Gallery - September 8th - October 8th <p><span style="font-family: Calibri;">We are&nbsp;</span>pleased to present&nbsp;<strong>Dan Schein</strong>&rsquo;s inaugural exhibition with Mike Weiss Gallery,&nbsp;<em>Where Do We Dump The Bodies?</em>&nbsp;For his first major solo show in New York, the thirty-year-old artist has created a series of darkly humorous paintings in a somber palette and with robust, fervid brushstrokes. Influenced as much by boyish fables, graphic novels, and time spent in densely-wooded areas of Wisconsin, as by the paintings of Pieter Brueghel the Elder and Hieronymus Bosch, Schein&rsquo;s compositions are intimate at the same time that they are vast.&nbsp; The subject matter is redolent &ndash; sometimes vaguely medieval, other times faintly biblical &ndash; and because of this, we find ourselves searching from painting to painting for a narrative that may never cohere.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 15:16:55 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list MJ Caselden, Parc Office, Lisa Park, Miriam Simun, Carlo Van de Roer, VolvoxLabs, Andrea Wolf, Karolina Ziulkoski - New Museum - August 4th - August 7th <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.newinc.org/" target="_blank">NEW&nbsp;INC</a>, the New Museum&rsquo;s incubator for art, design, and technology, is a testing ground for new ideas.

Commissioned by the Paris Opera Ballet in 2015, and starring real-life prima ballerina Emilie Cozette, the story unfolds upon the iconic stage of Opera Bastille, one of the city&rsquo;s most important cultural institutions. La Grande Sortie first d&eacute;buted in September 2015 on the Paris Opera Ballet&rsquo;s new digital platform 3&egrave;me Sc&egrave;ne, and was exhibited for the first time during Prager&rsquo;s solo exhibition at Galerie des Galeries, Paris, in October 2015. This exhibition marks La Grande Sortie's premier screening in the US and will include a new series of photography, shot by Prager while filming La Grande Sortie.</p> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 11:01:04 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list OsGemeos - Lehmann Maupin - September 8th - October 22nd <p style="text-align: justify;">Lehmann Maupin is pleased to announce a solo exhibition for OSGEMEOS, the Brazilian multimedia artists and twin brothers, Octavio and Gustavo Pandolfo, to run September 8-October 22, 2016. For their first solo exhibition with the gallery, OSGEMEOS, which translates as &ldquo;the twins,&rdquo; will debut a new body of work that will transform the gallery with thematic rooms, figurative and kinetic sculptures, and paintings that draw on the artists&rsquo; rich and varied sources of inspiration, from hip-hop and graffiti, to Brazilian folk art. Music remains the dominant influence, as it has for much of their art practice, with planned sound elements incorporated into the installation. The artists, who have gained notoriety for their large scale, public commissions in South America, Europe, and the United States, have spent the past two decades building a unique, shared aesthetic that both engages and transcends the political, social and ethnic to form a distinctive oeuvre that lingers between dreams and reality.</p> Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:59:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Sara Eliassen, Guillermo Mora - International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) - August 9th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Please join us on Tuesday, August 9th from 6:30 - 8pm for a Salon presentation with artist Sara Eliassen and current ISCP resident Guillermo Mora.&nbsp;</p> <p>Sara Eliassen&rsquo;s conceptual cinematic practice investigates how moving images create collective memories and influence history. Her projects expose how popular mediated images construct us as subjects. During her presentation, Eliassen will speak about the gendered gaze in moving image as well as some of her interventions in public space as a media activist. These works will frame current projects she has undertaken while in residence at ISCP, including a publication to accompany her film&nbsp;A Blank Slate&nbsp;(2014), in addition to a map of ideologies she has amassed from the history of cinema&ndash;beginning from early propaganda films through to contemporary screen culture.</p> <p>Guillermo Mora&rsquo;s recent work looks at the forgotten histories of painting and specifically ideas around acts of concealment, overlapping and disappearance. He will speak about his new project&nbsp;Hanta&iuml; escondido (Hidden Hanta&iuml;), based on the story of artist Simon Hanta&iuml;&rsquo;s painting&nbsp;Untitled [Suite &ldquo;Blancs&rdquo;],&nbsp;1973.&nbsp;This painting was hidden for years behind two of Roy Lichtenstein&rsquo;s paintings in the MoMA&rsquo;s warehouse in Queens and was only rediscovered in 2010 during the reorganization of the museum&rsquo;s collection.</p> <p>For more information visit our website&nbsp;http://iscp-nyc.org/event/36637</p> Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:34:46 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Naomi Campbell - International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) - August 4th - September 1st <p>The International Studio &amp; Curatorial Program is pleased to announce the opening of&nbsp;The Consonant of Noise, by Naomi Campbell,&nbsp;an exhibition in ISCP&rsquo;s first floor Project Space.</p> <p>Naomi Campbell investigates issues pertaining to science and nature through her interdisciplinary practice, employing a wide variety of techniques and mediums including glass, x-rays, metal, ink, and even corn to compose sculptures, drawings, paintings, and mixed media installations. For&nbsp;The Consonant of Noise, she creates a braille pattern of corn kernels running across the gallery walls, and a sculptural installation on the floor, alluding to the global food crisis in which corn is paramount. As in the allegory of Plato&rsquo;s Cave, she suggests how blind we are to reality, in this case, to the effects of the global food economy and genetic engineering on the world&rsquo;s food supplies. Campbell&rsquo;s visually compelling narrative combines art and science, highlighting her concerns about agricultural and humanitarian subjects.</p> <div class="description"> <p>Naomi Campbell (born Montreal) is a graduate of Champlain College, Quebec, Canada; Art Student&rsquo;s League of New York; and studied at School of Visual Arts, New York, New York.

The butterfly is not a new symbol in her work, but a symbol that exemplifies in a greater sense, the journey that art-making is, especially for the creator. &nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2">&nbsp;Artist Musings:</p> <p class="p2">"Music gives rise to image-making, and music and image meld in</p> <p class="p2">paint. The dancer and painter, with soul and brush, turns her attention</p> <p class="p2">to her world of music and paint as she explores her infatuation with</p> <p class="p2">color and movement . Her work speaks of the colors of the countries</p> <p class="p2">she&rsquo;s visited, cultures explored and her passion for experiential</p> <p class="p2">learning through world service and travel."</p> <p class="p3">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2"><strong>cross pollination</strong>- My work is a cross pollination of media&hellip;..in my world color has music, music has color. Nature is my cathedral. Becoming a certified yoga dance teacher 4 years ago has altered my work as well - and it brought me back to my inner child - being able to dance with abandon&hellip; the training brought me back to my most sacred and authentic self, tapping into my spirituality.&nbsp; So I think the phrase &ldquo;cross pollination&rdquo; applies to this body of work - the music and dance have fed my art, my art has fed my dance.</p> <p class="p2">Travel, the riot of color of a laundry line hanging in the breeze in a different country~ the aroma of the spices in the market in Budapest, living in India -where every day is a painting in Life - from the colorful saris to the bounty of fruits and vegetables on the market stand - have influenced my art. The children&rsquo;s voices like chirping birds, their insatiable appetite for creative endeavors - their ideas, their designs that evolve after I&rsquo;ve taught them how to make the papers and in many languages yet one- that of art- we talk through the creation of collage, dialogue - it all cross pollinates my art.</p> <p class="p2">This being my first NY solo show since my return from India, there has been a shift - a pollination - and the joy I&rsquo;ve felt in yoga dance, the spiritual awakening after a breathless dance through the chakras all have had an influence on me. Things are more vivid - and I&rsquo;m more aware than ever before. So these collages are more coloristic and I think more lyrical and when I&rsquo;m in the studio working - I&rsquo;m seeing my time there as play and I think that&rsquo;s reflected as well.</p> <p class="p1">&nbsp;The fact that the butterfly has always been an icon in my work - my understanding that it represents transformation and proliferation of beauty - because the butterfly pollinates - also signifies the emergence of something new, or in my case, the inner child Stacey Hope coming &ldquo;home&rdquo; to myself in my work and my life. Leaving behind the necessity for objects and material things and wanting more life experience, more involvement in the world and being awestruck by the beauty that exists in this world - noticing inner beauty in all beings and the wondrous outrageous beauty of the planet is part of my emergence.</p> <p class="p1">I am the butterfly, constantly transforming and creating what I believe to be beauty - through my art, through my work with students in yogadance. The love I feel when I&rsquo;ve finished a class and I see the transformation of a student (who perhaps came into class quietly but danced/painted exuberantly and left joyfully) &ldquo;pollinates&rdquo; my collages. &nbsp;~May you know joy. May you know Peace. May you be free.</p> Mon, 25 Jul 2016 19:30:37 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Esteban Ocampo Giraldo, Peter Barrickman, Kathryn Goshorn, Whitney Hubbs, Josh Jefferson, Christian Little, Soe Yu Nwe, Lee Relvas, Sarah Schlesinger - Zieher Smith & Horton - July 14th - August 20th <p style="text-align: justify;">A group exhibition featuring Peter Barrickman, Kathryn Goshorn, Whitney Hubbs, Josh Jefferson, Christian Little, Soe Yu Nwe, Esteban Ocampo-Giraldo, Lee Relvas, and Sarah Schlesinger.</p> Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:53:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Shen Jingdong, Jon Tsoi - WhiteBox - September 1st - September 30th <h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Opening and Performance September 7, 2016 | 6-8PM</span></h3> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em><strong>No Head No Heart</strong> </em>is an encounter and exhibition of Shen JingDong and Jon Tsoi.</span></p> Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:49:35 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Henry Coupe - Viridian Artists - September 6th - September 24th Sun, 24 Jul 2016 18:45:22 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list
