Aicon Gallery \;is prou d to present \;Uncanny Space\, an exhibition of new works by \;Abir Karmakar dealing with issues of voyuerism\, privacy and paranoia in a post-Edward Snowden world. A world w here one man disrupted his life to give us a voyeur's vantage into institut ionalized voyeurism by the state. But also a world where that vantage may b e on the path to obsolescence\, as people on the inner \;sides of keyho les throw open their doors and share their most private moments with the wo rld in graphic detail\, voluntarily and for no apparent gratification other their own desire to exhibit. This is the world that Abir Karmakar inhabits - in life\, in his head and through his paintings - in his Uncanny Space.& nbsp\;

\n
 \;Paintings from Karmakar's newest body of work take his audience into confidence. He is no longer giving us a script\, but inst ead urging us to write it ourselves. The quiet of seemingly ordinary scenes has a lingering disquiet as the viewer witnesses them not through the fram e of natural vision but through the filter of a camera lens. Why is there a camera spying on domestic idyll? Is it because we are no longer confident of ourselves? Can we not be assured of normalcy in our homes and in our liv es without the reassurance of an electronic eye conveying the far away scen e to us? But is that really reassurance? Can disquiet and danger lie right outside the frame?
\n

We live in a world where we need a selfie to p rove our very presence\; where joy\, anger\, curiosity and knowledge all ne ed visual validation. It is world where we will risk voyeurism by unwanted eyes\, whether of the state or of digital paparazzi\, in order to preserve an image on the cloud. In this world of hyper documentation\, Abir Karmakar drags and drops us on the very thin edge between real and unreal. A step b ackwards and we are no better than the state which doesn't respect the priv acy of its citizens. A step forward and we are the meat upon which voyeuris tic sharks feed. But right where Abir Karmakar has us\, we are suspended in -between\, with only our imaginations to help us.

Abir Karmakar was born in Siliguri\, I ndia in 1977. He studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts\, M.S. University\, Ba roda (2003)\, where he was awarded the Gold Medal for Fine Art\, Painting\, and at B.V.A. Rabindra Bharati University\, Kolkata (2001). He now lives a nd works in Baroda\, India.

The Invention of Folk Art
In the early years of the twentieth century\, a group of young\, pivotal American modernists began to equate the straightforwardnes s\, abstracted forms\, and delight in color of early folk art with the new modernist art they had studied in Europe and were pioneering in America. Folk Art and American Modernism traces the journey of these weatherv anes\, portraits\, decoys\, hooked rugs\, theorem paintings\, and other for ms of folk art from the fishing shacks of the Summer School of Graphic Arts established in Ogunquit\, Maine\, in 1911 to the walls of major art museum s beginning in the 1930s\, and culminating in the establishment of museums such as the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum in Colonial Williamsbu rg and the American Folk Art Museum in New York City.

\n

The exhibition highlights folk art owned\, collected\, and exhibited by such early art-world luminaries as Holger Cahill (curator)\, Edith Halpert (dealer)\, and Juliana Force (first director of the Whitney M useum of American Art)\, and artists Elie Nadelman\, Yasuo Kuniyoshi\, and Charles Sheeler\, among others\, whose own work is shown alongside the folk art that inspired them. In regarding folk art as art and as evidence of a &ldquo\;usable past\,&rdquo\; these trailblazers led their generation in pr eserving a continuous American artistic tradition of which they considered themselves a living part.

Charles Burchifeld is best known today for his fantastic watercolor landscapes\, but from November 1921 to August 1929\, he worked at the M. H. Birge &\; Sons Company\, eventually becoming one of their best wallpaper designers. His designs were so highly regarded that they printed his name in the selvage. He based many of his e arly designs on watercolors he had produced in Salem\, Ohio. Later designs were either company determined variations on traditional themes\, or imagin ative designs based on his special view of nature. This exhibition highligh ts works from the collection including color variations of wallpapers produ ced with rollers\, original painted designs for wallpapers and coordinating fabrics known as cretonnes. The exhibition also features panels from the c omplex\, block-printed scenic wallpaper\, Country Life and the Hunt (c. 192 2-1924) that had been removed from its original installation in a home in N ew England\, donated by Gail and John Greenberger in 1999\, and restored by paper conservator Patricia D. Hamm\, with assistance of Eileen Saracino\, James D. Hamm\, and Tracy Dulniak.

Artists Space is to pr esent the most comprehensive Tom of Finland survey exhibition to date\, inc luding more than 180 drawings\, gouaches from the 1940s\, over 300 pages of collages\, as well as early childhood works.

\n

Touko Laaksonen\, aka Tom of Finland (1920\, Kaarina &nda sh\; 1991\, Helsinki)\, is considered to be the most iconic gay artist of t he 20th century. In spite of his global status\, his work\, however\, has o nly been very infrequently presented\, examined or discussed within institu tional and academic contexts.

\n

\n

A child of teachers\, Tom grew up in rural Finland. At age 19 he enrolled in a distanc e learning advertising course. Soon drafted\, he joined the Finnish Army in its fight against the Soviet invasion. After the war he stayed in Helsinki studying classical piano at the renowned Sibelius Academy. While at the Ac ademy\, he worked as freelance graphic designer\, later becoming senior art director at the Helsinki branch of the global ad agency McCann Erickson. I n 1973\, after 17 years with the firm\, he quit to be able to focus entirel y on his own work.

\n

While living l ife as an adman in Helsinki\, his global career as gay icon was jumpstarted in 1950's Los Angeles through his ongoing contributions to Bob Mizer's Physique Pictorial. Later Tom became friends with Robert Mapplethorpe \, who in 1980 helped him to get his first major gallery exhibition in New York. From the 1970s onwards Tom visited the US frequently and while he nev er permanently resided in the US\, in the last decade of his life he spent equal time between Helsinki and Los Angeles\; it could be argued that there was a distinct Finnish Tom as much as there was a real LA Tom\, but there was always only one Tom of Finland.

\n

Because of Tom of Finland's compound stat us as artist and pop icon\, his work has for many years been admired by art ists including the late Mike Kelley\, who in 1988 invited him to speak at C alArts\; Raymond Pettibon\, who became a lifetime supporter of the Tom of F inland Foundation\, as well as Richard Hawkins\, who continues to work with the Foundation today.

Neil Goldberg&rsquo\;s Wind T unnel is an intimate portrait of the New York City subway system captu ring the movement of people&rsquo\;s hair thrown by the powerful blast of a ir that precedes an oncoming train. Goldberg creates quietly intense videos of the often overlooked everyday actions of New Yorkers. Repeated and loop ed\, these actions gain a poignancy that Goldberg has come to be known for.

\n

&ldquo\;I love being in the subway. Not always\, of course\, but a lot of the time. I find it very comforting d own there &mdash\; I feel very tucked in. I like that your choices are limi ted. Above ground\, you&rsquo\;re constantly making lots of decisions\, but in the subway\, it&rsquo\;s either uptown or downtown\, express or local. You don&rsquo\;t get to choose the stops. And I like that the doors open fo r you\, unlike in some European countries where you have to open them yours elf. Also\, it&rsquo\;s a public space in which people are usually very inw ardly focused. They&rsquo\;re having these highly internal experiences in t he presence of others\, which I find fascinating and rich. Also\, I think i t&rsquo\;s interesting that your time in the subway is somehow not supposed to count. You&rsquo\;re en route from some place that counts to another pl ace that counts. And I like seeing what people do with that type of time.&r dquo\;

The Bronx Muse um of the Arts is organizing a multi-venue artistic and cultural survey of The Young Lords Organization&mdash\;a radical social activist group founded by Puerto Rican youth in the 1960s that demanded reform in health care\, e ducation\, housing\, employment\, and policing. Exhibitions of art and arch ival materials at three cultural institutions in New York City will explore how the Young Lords&rsquo\; activities\, community-focused initiatives\, a nd their affirmation of Puerto Rican identity inspired artists from the 196 0s to the present day\, and had a major impact on the City and the social h istory of the United States.

\n

¡\;Presente! The Young Lords in New York will be exhi bited at The Bronx Museum of the Arts (July 2 &ndash\; September 13\, 2015) \, El Museo del Barrio (July 22-October 17\, 2015)\, and Loisaida Inc. (Jul y 25 &ndash\; September 23\, 2015). The initiative will include public and educational programs across partnering venues to build awareness of the You ng Lords&rsquo\; innovative contributions to the struggle for civil rights and influence on contemporary artists\, and to spark conversations about gr assroots community activism today. The institutions partnering in &iexc l\;Presente! The Young Lords in New York are all located in neighborho ods where the Young Lords were most active\, and each exhibition reflects o n the Young Lords&rsquo\; activities in that part of the City.

\n

&ldquo\;The Young Lords had a def ining influence on social activism\, art\, and identity politics\, but the lasting significance of their achievements has rarely been examined\,&rdquo \; said The Bronx Museum&rsquo\;s Executive Director Holly Block. &ldquo\;I n ¡\;Presente! The Young Lords in New York\, The Bronx Museum is partnering with El Museo del Barrio and Loisaida Inc. to explore the Yo ung Lord&rsquo\;s cultural impact in New York and the country at large. The issues the Young Lords struggled with are still timely\, and their aesthet ic and cultural vision still inspires both artists and community leaders to day. We&rsquo\;re pleased to work with our partner institutions to bring th is story to the public.&rdquo\;

A bout the Young Lords Organization

\n

Influenced by the Black Panthers and grassroots protests against the Vietnam War\, the Young Lords were a radical social organization led by po or and working-class Puerto Rican youth in the 1960s. The Lords built a nat ionwide movement to address the social issues afflicting their communities& mdash\;such as education\, health care\, affordable housing\, high unemploy ment\, and police brutality. The Young Lords&rsquo\; activities were innova tive\, highly effective\, and often resulted in legal mandates that institu tionalized their policies. In New York\, the Young Lords&rsquo\; actions in cluded theatrical garbage-dumping protests in East Harlem and series of aud acious church and hospital occupations. In East Harlem and the South Bronx\ , where the Young Lords were highly active\, the organization tested reside ntial areas for lead poisoning\, provided breakfast for schoolchildren\, an d demanded a &ldquo\;13 Point Program&rdquo\; calling for an end to discrim ination\, police brutality\, and mass incarceration. Among other victories\ , the Young Lords&rsquo\; activities led to a formulation of a patient&rsqu o\;s bill of rights\, the passing of new housing legislation\, and the buil ding of a new hospital complex in the Bronx.

Kara Walker: "African Boy Attendant Curio (Bananas)" presents a new resin-cast version of one of the sculptures that accompanied A Subtlety\, Walker&rsquo\;s 2014 project at the Domino Sugar Refinery in Williamsburg\, Brooklyn. At Domino \, a nearly forty-foot-tall sugar-coated sculpture of a black woman\, a hyb rid sphinx-mammy\, was accompanied by attendants made out of sugar and corn syrup that melted dramatically over time. In this installation\, a permane nt version of one attendant\, a black boy carrying a bushel of bananas\, is presented alongside sugar-related objects from our collection.

\n

Together with sugar bowls and other items\, the figure highlights the impact on material culture of the triangular trade be tween Europe\, Africa\, and the Americas\, and the enslaved people whose bo dies and labor were the foundation of the sugar industry.

The Children&rsquo\;s Museum of the Arts is pleased t o \;announce Far\, Far Away&hellip\;\, on view in the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery. Far\, Far \;Away&hellip\; is an exhibit ion that considers the possibility of alternate worlds\, dreamscapes \; and imagined landscapes- places where adventures occur and fantasy takes ov er.

\n

Artworks featured in this exhibition will captivate and inspire us by evoking dreams of places that may only exist in our imaginations. In practice\, many of these works highlight the artist&rsquo\;s process of ma nipulation. At the heart\, these works celebrate storytelling and the power of visual art to weave a tale without using any text at all. Some works co nsist of dream-like fantasies filled with details and discoveries\, while o thers address issues of youthful turmoil\, awkward transitions between chil dhood and adulthood\, or of ever- changing identity or illusion. Audiences are urged to fill in the blanks for themselves\, identify with the familiar and non-familiar\, and venture into the unknown\, all before returning hom e safely. Please join us as we transport you into a world of transformation where anything is possible. \; \;
