ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/show en-us 40 Adam Handler - Fred Torres Gallery - July 16th - September 12th <p style="text-align: justify;">Fred Torres Gallery is pleased to present Adam Handler&rsquo;s &ldquo;All Saints Here&rdquo;. Handler&rsquo;s sophomore solo show at Fred Torres Gallery Chelsea opens July 16th with a cocktail reception 6-9 pm. <br /> <br /> Adam Handler&rsquo;s youth and rebellious spirit find home within the the figurative representation of the contemporary society. His generation&rsquo;s uncertainty, politics, prejudices, ideals of beauty and social expectations all manifest in the expressive and rugged geometry juxtaposed with clear linear accents. <br /> <br /> His characters are reduced to puristic shapes and textures reminiscent of uninhibited adolescence. However, echoing a similar sophistication to Willem de Kooning&rsquo;s figures, Handler competently and intriguingly allows figure and background to integrate at moments. This compositional choice in particularly inspiring for introspection. <br /> <br /> His technical expression in stroke resonates in his color palette. His skillfully builds a pointedly dynamic atmosphere within the canvas utilizing an impressive range of hues. Some pieces focus in rich, deep colors and others whose find resonance in pastels to further internal conversation. <br /> <br /> An art history graduate of SUNY Purchase, Adam Handler&rsquo;s work is currently hanging at Hotel Hugo and has been sought out by collectors of the Erwin Pearl Collection, Levis Fine Art, and The Deutsche Bank. He is currently based out of NYC.</p> Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:19:16 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Elisa Contemporary Art Gallery - September 14th - October 31st Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:15:09 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Morgan Fisher - Bortolami Gallery - September 10th - October 24th <p style="text-align: justify;">Bortolami Gallery is pleased to present &ldquo;Negative Film Boxes,&rdquo; an exhibition of new photographs by Morgan Fisher and his third one-person exhibition at the gallery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The photographs in the exhibition are exact negatives of the photographs Fisher exhibited at Bortolami in 2011. This simple technical transformation produces images whose identity appears to be unsettled. The film boxes are plainly negatives, yet unlike many negatives they are instantly intelligible. But the backgrounds, of course negatives too, appear to be positives. This is because the backgrounds in the earlier photographs are 18% gray. This gray, a standard in photography, is exactly middle gray, so its negative is identical to its positive. Nothing about the gray in these photographs suggests that it&rsquo;s a neg&shy;ative, so it reads as the more familiar positive. But if the backgrounds are positive, then so are the boxes, an understanding made likely by their already having the legibility of positives. And as positives the boxes are otherworldly. Adding to the ambiguity, the images are almost without shadows. Shadows in a negative are light rather than dark and so are a giveaway, but only when conspicuous. These several factors result in images whose identity is elusive, suspended.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Morgan Fisher was born in 1942 in Washington, D.C. He studied art history at Harvard College and film in Los Angeles. His early work was in film, and more recently he has made paintings, sculptures, and photographs. Recent one-person exhibi&shy;tions at public institutions were at the Aspen Art Museum (2013); Generali Foundation, Vienna (2012); Raven Row, London, and Museum Abteiberg, M&ouml;nchengladbach (2011); and Portikus, Frankfurt (2009). He lives and works in Los Angeles.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For more information and images, please contact Claire Bergeal at +1-212-727-2050 or claire@bortolamigallery.com.</p> Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:10:25 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Ivan Morley - Bortolami Gallery - September 10th - October 24th <p class="Pa2" style="text-align: justify;">Bortolami is pleased to announce the gallery&rsquo;s first solo exhibition with Ivan Morley.</p> <p class="Pa2" style="text-align: justify;">Morley admits that he has created and recreated the same paintings for over a decade. By repeating the themes and images, he builds works of art&mdash;which he refers to as &ldquo;groups&rdquo;&mdash;consisting of large numbers of individual paintings. Yet, his first show at Bortolami marks a significant shift in his art-making. Morley has applied a unifying strategy to his disparate practices for the first time, by using the pattern produced by breaking a large pane of glass to &ldquo;draw&rdquo; all the works in the show, whether they are made of leather, thread, batik, or oil paint.</p> <p class="Pa2" style="text-align: justify;">Whereas his work over the last decade used repetition to play with temporal experience and sequence, the pieces in this exhibition use similar means to a different end. By making the same painting seven times from a variety of materials, Morley manufactures a present tense. One might argue that his practice and notion of time is vertical rather than linear.</p> <p class="Pa2" style="text-align: justify;">The titles, <em>A True Tale </em>and <em>Tehachepi, (sic)</em>, refer to two of a handful of anecdotes that Morley has painted many times over. The former involving an enterprising ex-slave who made a fortune taking advantage of the overabundance of cats in one city and of rats in another. The latter; a native family living in a small town where the wind was so strong it could alter a bullet&rsquo;s trajectory. But the precise subject, origin, or narrative of each tale is hardly the point. Rather, he renders elements along each story&rsquo;s periphery, allowing a single detail to shift and mutate via paint and thread.</p> <p class="Pa2" style="text-align: justify;">Likewise, the scale of these works is determined by not just exhaustion but practical necessity&mdash;sometime he simply runs out of time and material. The two embroidered canvases consist of solid, vaguely geometric forms that transition abruptly between one another. The repetitive action of each stitch, akin to cross-hatching in a drawing, serves as both catharsis and productive, impul&shy;sive activity.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Ivan Morley (b. 1966 in Burbank, California) is an artist living and working in Los Angeles. He most recently had solo exhibitions at Kimmerich in Berlin, Germany and Richard Telles Fine Art in Los Angeles, California. Morley attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.</p> Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:08:46 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list

Land</em>.

He blends reality, fantasy and memory to create a world that is both semi-autobiographical and resonantly universal. His visual language approaches aspects of experience often addressed through literature, religion and philosophy such as the individual search for authenticity and belonging, the limitations of self-knowledge, the tension between possibility and regret, and the consequences of a stunted inner life.The cumulative result explores the dynamics of will as we navigate a world that is often resistant to our strivings and regrets.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-weight: normal; mso-bidi-font-weight: bold;">If the broader concern of <em>Empires </em>is our inherent restlessness, revealed through our love, dreams, contentment, loneliness, nostalgia, and despair, the fundamental motivation is the confrontation of being and time. In this exhibition, land is a metaphor for what is known or at least imagined to be knowable. It becomes a site of embarkment as well as a destination. In <em>The Crown,</em>a boy king swallowed by a too-large crown is seemingly overwhelmed by new responsibilities. The boy is the counterpoint for an older man who appears in <em>The</em><em>Dreamer </em>in the stance of power but naked, the vulnerability of his flesh contradicting the forcefulness he exudes. Here, land becomes a stand-in for the past and for the future: an embodiment of the tension between an identity or a home that is familiar and one that is strange, yet in which we hope to settle someday. The sea, on the other hand, is seen as substantially secret, facilitating the journey while threatening to swallow us into its watery heart. In <em>The Beginning</em> an almost imperceptible black pool spreads on the surface of an already dark sea. It is not apparent whether it is a substance, a shadow, or the evidence of something lurking below.

http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Enrique Martínez Celaya - Jack Shainman Gallery 20th Street - September 10th - October 24th <p style="text-align: justify;">Jack Shainman Gallery is pleased to announce Enrique Mart&iacute;nez Celaya&rsquo;s first solo exhibition at the gallery, <em>Empires: Sea </em>and<a href="http://www.artslant.com/ny/events/show/391456-empires-land" target="_blank"><em> Empires: Land</em></a>. This exhibition, in two parts, comprises an interconnected group of new works that are revealed, hidden, or undermined by each other to create an experience that is simultaneously visceral and elusive. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Working in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, needlepoint and installation, as well as poetry and other writing, Mart&iacute;nez Celaya has created a new body of work characterized by the allusive complexity, emotional presence and intellectual rigor that he has developed over the past two decades. He blends reality, fantasy and memory to create a world that is both semi-autobiographical and resonantly universal. His visual language approaches aspects of experience often addressed through literature, religion and philosophy such as the individual search for authenticity and belonging, the limitations of self-knowledge, the tension between possibility and regret, and the consequences of a stunted inner life.The cumulative result explores the dynamics of will as we navigate a world that is often resistant to our strivings and regrets. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">If the broader concern of <em>Empires </em>is our inherent restlessness, revealed through our love, dreams, contentment, loneliness, nostalgia, and despair, the fundamental motivation is the confrontation of being and time. In this exhibition, land is a metaphor for what is known or at least imagined to be knowable. It becomes a site of embarkment as well as a destination. In <em>The Crown, </em>a boy king swallowed by a too-large crown is seemingly overwhelmed by new responsibilities. The boy is the counterpoint for an older man who appears in <em>The Dreamer </em>in the stance of power but naked, the vulnerability of his flesh contradicting the forcefulness he exudes. Here, land becomes a stand-in for the past and for the future: an embodiment of the tension between an identity or a home that is familiar and one that is strange, yet in which we hope to settle someday. The sea, on the other hand, is seen as substantially secret, facilitating the journey while threatening to swallow us into its watery heart. In <em>The Beginning</em> an almost imperceptible black pool spreads on the surface of an already dark sea. It is not apparent whether it is a substance, a shadow, or the evidence of something lurking below. This nebulous depth is complemented by <em>The Bloom, for the Wilderness </em>a painting of another type of surface, disturbed and tempestuous, crashing onto roses ambiguous in scale. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Conversations of land and sea frequently become conversations of the shore, that fluid border between the known world and the mystery of the water, as well as the excitement and dread of the journey. Eroded by memory, these meditations reveal something about the trajectory, and maybe the texture, of becoming.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Enrique Mart&iacute;nez Celaya has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and internationally. Recent exhibitions include <em>Burning as It Were a Lamp </em>at the Hood Art Museum, Dartmouth College in 2014, <em>The Pearl</em> at SITE Santa Fe in 2013, <em>The Tower of Snow</em> at The State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia in 2012, and <em>Schneebett</em> at the P&eacute;rez Art Museum Miami in 2011.&nbsp; Upcoming solo exhibitions include the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts in January 2016, Centro Atl&aacute;ntico de Arte Moderno, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain in September 2016, and the Hood Art Museum, Dartmouth College, where he is a Montgomery Fellow, in 2016. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Mart&iacute;nez Celaya&rsquo;s work can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Museum of Fine Art Houston, the Denver Art Museum, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Sweden, and the Museum der bildenden K&uuml;nste in Leipzig, Germany, among others. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He has received many awards including the National Artist Award from the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, the California Community Foundation Fellowship, J. Paul Getty Trust Fund for Visual Arts, a Knight Foundation Grant, and the Young Talent Award from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Formally trained in science, Mart&iacute;nez Celaya studied Applied &amp; Engineering Physics at Cornell University and pursued a Ph.D. in Quantum Electronics at the University of California, Berkeley. He later received a Skowhegan Fellowship to attend the Skowhegan School of Painting &amp; Sculpture in Maine and earned a Master of Fine Arts with the department's highest distinction from the University of California, Santa Barbara. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Mart&iacute;nez Celaya is the author of many publications including <em>Collected Writings and Interviews 1990-2010</em> published by the University of Nebraska Press,<em>On Art and Mindfulness</em> co-published by Whale &amp; Star Press and the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, <em>October</em>, published by Cinubia, and the artist book <em>Guide</em>, which was later serialized by the magazine <em>Works &amp; Conversations</em>.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Upcoming exhibitions at the gallery include Vibha Galhotraat 513 West 20<sup>th</sup> Street and Carlos Vega at 524 West 24<sup>th</sup> Street. <em>Five Decades</em>,a retrospective of the work of El Anatsui,is on view at The School in Kinderhook, NY through September 26th.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp; </p> <h6 style="text-align: justify;">Prior to the opening, there will be an <strong>artist talk at 4:30 PM</strong> at 513 West 20<sup>th</sup> Street. </h6> <h6 style="text-align: justify;">Space is limited so RSVP to jaci@jackshainman.com.<span style="font-size: small;"><br /></span></h6> Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:33:44 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Clifford Owens - Invisible-Exports - September 11th - October 3rd Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:04:27 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Franz West - Gagosian Gallery 976 Madison Avenue - September 11th - November 7th Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:58:46 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list JENNIFER MACK-WATKINS, Ronny Quevedo, Mitsuko Brooks, Michael Paul Britto, Kevin Bright - Rush Arts Gallery - April 9th - May 16th Tue, 28 Jul 2015 18:31:05 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Morgane Tschiember - Tracy Williams, Ltd. - September 12th - November 1st <p style="text-align: justify;">Tracy Williams Ltd. is pleased to present Morgane Tschiember <em><strong>Almost a Kiss</strong></em>, in her first solo exhibition with the gallery and in New York City. The presentation deploys three works entitled,<em> Dust Devil, Rash</em> and<em> Shibari</em>, accompanied by sound, a video and a newspaper, which is now an integral part of her exhibitions.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The installation takes into account the overall volume of the gallery&rsquo;s two levels, while also incorporating the architectural features of the space. Rash is situated heavily on the ground, while <em>Shibari</em> invests in the heights. Whereas the open geometric structure <em>Dust Devil</em> develops in latitude, the smaller <em>Dust Devil</em> works occupy an intermediate position on the walls.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Each sculpture considers a connection among disparate elements that are both &ldquo;full&rdquo; and &ldquo;empty.&rdquo; For instance, the cardboard boxes of <em>Rash</em> initially filled with concrete, now expel part of the air contained in their sockets of foam. <em>Dust Devil</em> combines the fullness of concrete alongside the bareness of its metal structure, as well as the emptiness ensued from glass blowing the <em>Bubbles</em> somehow &ldquo;fills&rdquo; the metal structures. The <em>Shibari</em>, which are often crushed and in a sense &ldquo;emptied&rdquo; from their hollowness, conversely occupy more figurative space in the gallery than any other piece.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Further, all the materials that constitute the pieces have passed through fire (glass, solders, clay) or water (concrete, clay, cardboard) based phases, and quite often reflect noticeable traces of these changes of state.</p> Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:44:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Troy Michie - Tracy Williams, Ltd. - May 15th - July 29th Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:39:13 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list
