ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/show en-us 40 Victor Burgin - Cristin Tierney Gallery - September 8th - October 22nd <p style="text-align: justify;">Cristin Tierney Gallery is pleased to present <em>Midwest, </em>an exhibition of recent digital projection works by Victor Burgin that focus on an oft-mythologized region of the United States. Understood by many to be representative of the larger nation, the Midwest is frequently on the lips and minds of politicians, pundits, and journalists during election cycles. Given the surreal and chaotic presidential politics of 2016, Burgin&rsquo;s work offers us the opportunity to examine another part of the rich and complicated history of the heartland. <em>Midwest </em>will be on view from September 8th to October 22nd, with an opening reception on Thursday, September 8th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. This is Burgin&rsquo;s first solo exhibition in New York since 2005, and he will be present at the reception.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Burgin&rsquo;s recent work focuses on the way specific architectural sites are mediated through memory and fantasy; the way &ldquo;space&rdquo; becomes &ldquo;place.&rdquo; Using digital tools, he creates verisimilar, hybrid models of image and text that constitute both a virtual and a psychological portrait of a site. <em>Prairie, </em>for example, describes the history of &ldquo;The Mecca&rdquo; apartment building, built in 1892 and destroyed almost sixty years later when Mies van der Rohe undertook a redesign and expansion of the Illinois Institute of Design. Combining images and descriptions of van der Rohe&rsquo;s Crown Hall with those of former Mecca residents, <em>Prairie </em>unearths an erased history, revealing the close links between memory and space.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In <em>Mirror Lake, </em>Burgin contrasts the history of Frank Lloyd Wright&rsquo;s Seth Peterson Cottage, located in what is now Mirror Lake State Park, Wisconsin, with that of the Winnebago culture and tribe, which was forcefully relocated from that same area to Nebraska in the late 19th century. Burgin&rsquo;s work positions such architectural sites as the crystallization of our wishes and fears about the past, present, and future. The forgotten stories he illuminates, whether real or imagined, underscore that the built environment is not an isolated, physical construct, but rather a shifting perception layered with many different cultural histories. The exhibition runs concurrent with Burgin&rsquo;s solo show <em>UK76 </em>at Bridget Donahue, 99 Bowery 2nd Floor, New York, which features the artist&rsquo;s historic photo-text work.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Victor Burgin first came to prominence in the late 1960s as one of the originators of Conceptual Art. His work appeared in such key exhibitions as Harald Szeemann's <em>Live&nbsp;</em><em>in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form </em>(1969) at the ICA London, and Kynaston McShine's <em>Information </em>(1970) at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Since then, he has had solo exhibitions at the Museum f&uuml;r Gegenwartkunst Siegen, Kunsthalle Bremerhaven, MAMCO Mus&eacute;e d&rsquo;art moderne et contemporain, Canadian Centre for Architecture, M&uuml;csarnok Museum, University at Buffalo Art Gallery, Mus&eacute;e d&rsquo;art moderne Villeneuve d&rsquo;Ascq, The List Visual Arts Center, Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, Mus&eacute;e de la Ville de Calais, The Museum of Modern Art in Oxford, and Stedelijk van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven. His work appears in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The New York Public Library, The Walker Art Center, The Tate Gallery, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Museum Ludwig,&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Fotomuseum Winterthur, Mus&eacute;e national d&rsquo;art moderne, Sammlung Falckenberg, and The Arts Council Collection in London. Burgin graduated from the School of Painting at the Royal College of Art, London, in 1965, and then went on to study Philosophy and Fine Art at Yale University School of Art and Architecture, where his teachers included Robert Morris and Donald Judd.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Burgin is Professor Emeritus of History of Consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Emeritus Millard Chair of Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London. He was recently a Mellon Fellow and Visiting Professor in the Department of Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Chicago, where he produced <em>Prairie </em>for the Chicago Architecture Biennial. He lives and works in Gascony and Paris.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For more information please contact Candace Moeller at candace@cristintierney.com or +1.212.594.0550.</p> Fri, 29 Jul 2016 06:20:33 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Jessie Edelman - Denny Gallery - September 10th - October 16th <p class="p1">Denny Gallery is pleased to announce <em>Stills from &ldquo;The End of Summer,&rdquo;</em> a solo exhibition by Jessie Edelman on view from September 10th to October 16th, 2016. This is Edelman&rsquo;s first solo exhibition with the gallery.</p> <p class="p1"><em>Stills from &ldquo;The End of Summer&rdquo; </em>is a cohesive exhibition of new paintings focusing on the cinematic concept of <em>mise-en-sc&egrave;ne</em> or the visual arrangement of everything that will appear within the frame. Edelman&rsquo;s compositions usually include a human subject in the foreground of the painting viewing the scene. This generates layers of fictional spaces, which may be film screens, paintings, photos, or distant vistas. We are watching the figures have a visual experience, yet reading their thoughts from their deportment is difficult: they are suspended between deep thought and boredom, existential concern and indifference, melancholic isolation and engagement. The exuberance of Edelman&rsquo;s colors and elegance of her brushwork are echoed by the timeless Mediterranean locations, such as views from the poolside of a villa on a bluff and an opulently decorated seaside terrace. Late 19th century and early 20th century artists such as C&eacute;zanne, Degas, and Rothko have stylistically influenced her work. She is equally informed by the development of visual culture that occurred in this period and is ongoing today, starting with the <em>fl&acirc;neur</em> as defined by Baudelaire and Walter Benjamin: a modern spectator whose visual consumption of the urban experience defines his artistic identity. In a world saturated by screens and social media, Edelman examines the contemporary <em>fl&acirc;neur</em>, a familiar alienated archetype searching for meaning.</p> <p class="p1">Jessie Edelman was born in 1986 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her MFA in 2013 from Yale University and her BA in 2008 from Skidmore College.&nbsp; She has had solo exhibitions at Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago and Robert Blumenthal in New York, and she was in a two-person exhibition with David Humphrey at the Suburban in Milwaukee.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">Please join us for an opening reception for the artist Jessie Edelman on Saturday, September 10th, from 6 to 8 p.m. Denny Gallery is located at 261 Broome Street in New York City. The hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For further information, contact Elizabeth Denny or Robert Dimin at 212-226-6537 or by email at elizabeth@dennygallery.com or robert@dennygallery.com.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 28 Jul 2016 20:07:28 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list - Animation Nights New York - August 10th 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM <p dir="ltr">ANNY: Animation Nights New York is a curated monthly screening event held in the<br class="kix-line-break" />South Street Seaport of NYC.</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr">Animation Nights New York presents "August Animation"!</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr">An evening of independent animated shorts from around the world.

Recurring every five years, the exhibition has traditionally showcased the work of emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area.&nbsp;<em>Greater New York</em>&nbsp;arrives in a city and art community that has changed significantly since the first version of the survey. With the rise of a robust commercial art market and the proliferation of art fairs, opportunities for younger artists in the city have grown alongside a burgeoning interest in artists who may have been overlooked in the art histories of their time. Concurrently, the city itself is being reshaped by a voracious real estate market that poses particular challenges to local artists. The speed of this change in recent years has stoked a nostalgia for earlier periods in New York&mdash;notably the 1970s and 1980s, and the experimental practices and attitudes that flourished in the city during those decades. Against this backdrop,&nbsp;<em>Greater New York</em>&nbsp;departs from the show&rsquo;s traditional focus on youth, instead examining points of connection and tension between our desire for the new and nostalgia for that which it displaces.</p> <p>Bringing together emerging and more established artists, the exhibition occupies MoMA PS1&rsquo;s entire building with over 400 works by 157 artists, including programs of film and performance. Greater New York is co-organized by a team led by Peter Eleey, Curator and Associate Director of Exhibitions and Programs, MoMA PS1; and including art historian Douglas Crimp, University of Rochester; Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, MoMA; and Mia Locks, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1.</p> <p>Considering the &ldquo;greater&rdquo; aspect of its title in terms of both geography and time, Greater New York begins roughly with the moment when MoMA PS1 was founded in 1976 as an alternative venue that took advantage of disused real estate, reaching back to artists who engaged the margins of the city. Together, the works in the exhibition employ a heterogeneous range of aesthetic strategies, often emphatically representing the city&rsquo;s inhabitants through forms of bold figuration, and foregrounding New York itself as a location of conflict and possibility.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>PARTICIPATING ARTISTS</strong></p> <p>Charlie Ahearn (b. 1951)+<br />John Ahearn (b. 1951)<br />Chantal Akerman (1950-2015)+<br />Sam Anderson (b. 1982)<br />Richard Artschwager (1923-2013)<br />Robert Ashley (1930-2014)*<br />Charles Atlas (b. 1949)<br />Lutz Bacher (born in the USA)<br />Fia Backstr&ouml;m (b. 1970)<br />Alvin Baltrop (1948-2004)<br />Rina Banerjee (b. 1963)<br />Morgan Bassichis (b. 1983)*<br />Kevin Beasley (b. 1985)<br />Gina Beavers (b. 1974)<br />Gelsey Bell (b. 1982)*<br />Michael Bell-Smith (b. 1978)<br />Sadie Benning (b. 1973)<br />Huma Bhabha (b. 1962)<br />Dara Birnbaum (b. 1946)+<br />Mel Bochner (b. 1940) and Robert Moskowitz (b. 1935)+<br />Lizzie Borden (b. 1958)+<br />Robert Bordo (b. 1949)<br />Gregg Bordowitz (b. 1964)+<br />Liene Bosqu&ecirc; (b. 1980)<br />Amy Brener (b. 1982)<br />Ben Thorp Brown (b. 1983)<br />Rudy Burckhardt (1914-1999)+<br />Harry Burke (b. 1990)*<br />Scott Burton (1939-1989)<br />Abigail Child (b. 1948)+<br />Susan Cianciolo (b. 1969)<br />Shirley Clarke (1919-1997)+<br />Todd Colby (b. 1962)*<br />Roy Colmer (1935-2014)<br />Sara Cwynar (b. 1985)<br />Mira Dancy (b. 1979)<br />Jaime Davidovich (b. 1936)+<br />Jimmy DeSana (1950-1990)<br />Vivienne Dick (b. 1950)+<br />Andrew Durbin (b. 1989)*&nbsp;<br />Diego Echeverr&iacute;a (b. 1946)+<br />Terry Fox (1958-1981)+<br />Su Friedrich (b. 1954)+<br />Eckhaus Latta (founded 2011)<br />Mary Beth Edelson (b. 1933)<br />Gregory Edwards (b. 1981)<br />Joy Episalla (b. 1960)<br />Loretta Fahrenholz (b. 1981)<br />Ben Fama (b.1982)*<br />fierce pussy (founded 1991)<br />John Finneran (b. 1979)<br />Henry Flynt (b. 1940)<br />Jeffrey Gibson (b. 1972)<br />John Giorno (b. 1936)*<br />Ignacio Gonz&aacute;lez-Lang (b. 1975)<br />William Greaves (1926-2014)+<br />Jonah Groeneboer (b. 1978)*<br />Red Grooms (b. 1937)<br />David Grubbs (b. 1967)*<br />David Hammons (b. 1943)<br />Fanny Howe (b. 1940)*<br />Katherine Hubbard (b. 1981)<br />Peter Hutton (b. 1944)+<br />Elizabeth Jaeger (b. 1988)<br />Ken Jacobs (b. 1933)+<br />Paolo Javier (b. 1974)*<br />Joan Jonas (b. 1936)+<br />Jamian Juliano-Villani (b. 1987)<br />Angie Keefer (b. 1977)<br />Devin Kenny (b. 1987)<br />Eli Keszler (b. 1983)*<br />Christine Sun Kim (b. 1980)<br />KIOSK (founded 2005)<br />Manfred Kirchheimer (b. 1931)+<br />Ajay Kurian (b. 1984)<br />Robert Kushner (b. 1949)<br />M.

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.

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.
