Mitchell-Innes &\; Nash is pleased to present a three-person show with Jo Baer\, Anne Neukamp\ , and Diane Simpson. This will be the gallery&rsquo\;s first time exhibiting work by these three artists and will include a range of painting s and sculptures from 1978 to the present. The exhibition will be on view f rom December 13\, 2014 through January 24\, 2015.

\n

Although their aesthetic practices differ\, Baer\, Neukamp\, a nd Simpson all produce work that abstracts its original source material in order to create a new visual conversation between forms in space. \; Al l three artists borrow and adapt source materials from a range of outlets\, which include the common culture of branding\, iconography\, and figuratio n. Works such as Latz (2014) depicts Neukamp&rsquo\;s ability to c reate almost vector-like graphics\, which oscillate between ambiguous plane s of texture\, geometry and color. \; In turn\, Baer&rsquo\;s paintings reveal wavering forms that entice the viewer to make his or her own visual connections between imagery that seems at once foreign and familiar. \ ; Similar to both Neukamp and Baer&rsquo\;s paintings\, Simpson&rsquo\;s ap proach to sculpture in works like Mesh Bonnet (1992) comparably di smantles an existing form\, before reconfiguring it into a new compounded c onstruction.

\n

Cohesively these three a rtists all pull from the culturally familiar and through various methods of distortion&mdash\;cropping\, reconstruction\, and overlay&mdash\;investiga te the volatile boundary between abstraction and representation. \;

Marian Goodman Gallery is plea sed to announce an exhibition of selected works by Juan Muñ\;oz from 1984-2001 which will open on Tuesday\, December 9th and be on view through Saturday\, January 31st. The exhibition is curated by Russell Ferguson and will be accompanied by a catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibit ion.

Three key works by Muñ\;oz will be featured: the sc ulptural installations Thirteen Laughing at Each Other\, 2001\, Many Times\, 1999 and a Figure Hanging from One Foot\, 2001 . These will be accompanied by works on paper and early wall sculptures. In cluding works such as empty or occupied balconies\, isolated figures\, and those laughing and in conversation\, this group of works often puts viewers in an ambiguous position\, looking but also seemingly being looked at. The work suggests\, as Russell Ferguson writes\, &ldquo\;the tension betwe en the comfort of the group and the desire for individual autonomy.&rdquo\;

Regarded as one of the most important sculptors of his generation\, Juan Muñ\;oz was known for his return to the human form in art and for his emphasis on the relationship of sculpture\, architecture and the viewer. In sculptures\, drawings\, &lsquo\;conversation pieces&rsq uo\;\, and immersive installations\, he often placed the viewer in dramatic relationship to space and objects that were at once architectural and impl ied narrative or silence\, a sense that something had happened or was about to happen. His sources ranged from literature\, architecture\, mythology\, to music\, film\, theater\, poetry. Ever the storyteller\, his artistic ac tivity extended to plays for radio and theater\, writings and essays. Frequ ently\, Muñ\;oz&rsquo\;s sculptural tableaux offer the viewer an expe rience of physical passage through interior spaces\, suggesting a psycholog ical landscape of presence and distance\, labyrinths and solitudes\, urbans capes and empty interiors\, the collective and the individual.

&ldquo\;I sometimes feel that [some of] my work is about waiting\, w aiting for something to happen\; on the one hand afraid in case it does hap pen\, or even wishing that it had never occurred. It is like keeping a work in that state that we would call desire- keeping it at that level of desir e\, just holding it there that wish\, that uncertainty\, keeping the work s till just here. Or like watching a door which one day a person might open.& rdquo\;
-Juan Muñ\;oz in Monologues and Dialogues
\, 1997

Forthcoming exhibitions in 2015 include a solo exhi bition at the Hangar Bicocca\, Milan\, Italy curated by Vicente Todol&iacut e\;\, which will open April 9th and run through August 23rd.

Muñ\;oz&rsquo\;s work has also most recently been shown at Turner Con temporary\, Kent\, UK (2013) and the Clark Art Institute\, Massachusetts (2 010). Important retrospectives of his work include those at the Museo Nacio nal Centro de Arte Reina Sofí\;a\, Madrid (2009)\, Tate Modern\, Lond on and the Guggenheim Bilbao\, Spain (2008)\, the Musé\;e de Grenoble Grenoble (2007)\, K21 Kunstsammlung\, Dusseldorf (2006-2007)\; Hirshhorn M useum and Sculpture Garden\, Washington\, D.C.\; the Museum of Contemporary Art\, Los Angeles (2003)\, The Art Institute of Chicago (2002)\, the Conte mporary Arts Museum\, Houston(2003).

Recent group shows inclu de Manifesta 10 at the State Hermitage Museum\, Russia (2014)\, Damage Control: Art and Destruction Since 1950
at the Kunsthaus Graz \, Austria (2014-2015)\; Kaboom! Comics in Art\, Museum fur modern e Kunst\, Bremen\, Germany (2013)\; Echoes of Silence\, Neon\, Ath ens (2013) and Inside|Out\, Speed Art Museum\, Louisville\, Kentuc ky (2012).

Luhring Augustine is pleased t o present Las Meninas Renacen de Noche (Las Meninas Reborn in the Night )\, a recent body of photographs by Yasumasa Morimura. In these self-p ortraits\, the artist reimagines Diego Velá\;zquez&rsquo\;s 1656 Las Meninas by assuming the role of each character in the renowned work. Morimu ra photographed Velá\;zquez&rsquo\;s painting in situ at the Museo Na cional del Prado in Madrid\, using the museum as a stage for his study.

In his exploration of Las Meninas\, Morimura creates ne w narratives by altering the positioning of the subjects both in the origin al composition and in the visual space of the museum. The artist first used imagery from Velá\;zquez in 1990\, when he impersonated Princess Mar garita\, or &ldquo\;The Infanta\,&rdquo\; a portrait that appears in one ph otograph from this new series. In addition to the eleven personalities he a ssumes from Las Meninas\, for the first time Morimura portrays him self\, undisguised\, as the artist. In his reconsideration of this iconic p ainting\, Morimura further investigates the questions that Velá\;zque z posed in regard to perspective\, authorship\, and identity.

Morimura has been working as a conceptual photographer and filmmaker for m ore than three decades. Through extensive use of props\, costumes\, makeup\ , and digital manipulation\, the artist masterfully transforms himself into recognizable subjects\, often from the Western cultural canon. Morimura ha s based works on seminal paintings by Frida Kahlo\, Vincent Van Gogh\, and É\;douard Manet\, and he also uses images culled from historical mate rials\, mass media\, and popular culture in his practice. His reinvention o f iconic photographs and art historical masterpieces challenges the viewer& rsquo\;s common associations with the subjects while also commenting on Jap an's complex relationship with and absorption of Western culture.
Yasumasa Morimura was born in 1951 in Osaka\, Japan\, where he current ly lives and works. Solo exhibitions of Morimura&rsquo\;s work were present ed in 2013 at The Andy Warhol Museum\, Pittsburgh\, the Hara Museum\, Tokyo \, and the Shiseido Gallery in Tokyo\, where Las Meninas Renacen de Noc he debuted. The artist also recently served as the Artistic Director o f the critically acclaimed 2014 Yokohama Triennale. Morimura's work is incl uded in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art\, New York\, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\, The J. Paul Getty Museum\, Los Ang eles\, the Museum of Fine Arts\, Boston\, the Museum of Contemporary Art\, Chicago\, The Museum of Contemporary Art\, Los Angeles\, and the Carnegie M useum of Art\, Pittsburgh.

We are pleased to announce a solo exhibition in the project galle ry of selected gouache paintings by Maira Kalman in conjunction with her cu rated show Maira Selects\, an inaugural exhibition at the newly re novated Cooper Hewitt\, Smithsonian Design Museum\, opening to the public o n Friday\, December 12. Kalman&rsquo\;s two new books\, My Favorite Thi ngs and Ah-Ha to Zig-Zag\, based on the Cooper Hewitt show an d collection\, will be available at the opening for sale and signing.

\n

As a narrative and pictorial exploration o f significant objects chosen from the Cooper Hewitt&rsquo\;s collection\, K alman brings together objects such as teapots\, illustrated books\, porcela in figures of ballet dancers and President Abraham Lincoln&rsquo\;s gold po cket watch. Kalman is best known for her distinctive take on modern life. H ere\, she explores the human condition\, presenting objects that create a p icture of daily life as she sees it and lives it. The disparate elements\, she says\, are bound together by sheer luck: &ldquo\;These objects might be on a sidewalk or in a museum\, but all seem to be equally brave to survive &mdash\;which is how I also feel about people.&rdquo\;

\n

Kalman has authored over thirty books for both children a nd adults\, and has designed theatrical sets\, painted murals\, created emb roideries and performed in musical events. In 2010 the ICA in Philadelphia organized a survey of her work which traveled to three additional museums i ncluding The Jewish Museum in New York. In 2014 the Frist Museum in Nashvil le exhibited the gouache paintings from her illustrated The Elements of Style in their entirety for the first time.

Conversation between Gerritsen and René\; Put\, de signer\, Tuesday\, December\, 9\, 6:30 pm at the Aperture Gallery and Books tore

\n

The Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce our first solo exhibition with Dutch photographer Re inier Gerritsen in conjunction with the new Aperture publication The Last B ook. For almost a decade Gerritsen has been working in the New York City su bways. Here he explores the act of reading as it occurs in public spaces th e cramped and jostled environment of a subway car. It began as a series of modest observations and transformed into a collection of vivid documentary portraits\, set against a visual landscape of best sellers\, classics\, rom ance novels\, detective thrillers and every kind of printed book\, as diver se as the readers. Conceived as an elegy to the end of bound books\, in a p ositive twist it has now become evident that people are moving away from el ectronic reading devices and that the printed book is alive and well!

\n

Gerritsen records through a burst of expos ures\, capturing many images in rapid succession. Next he uses Photoshop to recombine the figures\, selecting each individual&rsquo\;s expression and gesture. The diversity of age\, gender\, ethnicity and of course reading se lections\, is spectacularly broad. Ultimately\, it is the individual portra its which form the group that make Gerritsen a great documentarian of human ity. The shallow space\, sharp focus\, gestures and grimaces and jewel like color in his photographs bring to mind his 15th century Dutch predecessors such as Quentin Matsys. In addition to his standard format of wide color p rints he has interspersed throughout the book black and white individual &l dquo\;studies&rdquo\; of readers. An entire index of the books being read a nd their ISBN numbers complete the book.

\n

Gerritsen (born Amsterdam\, 1950) has been photographing in the public sphere for over twenty years and exhibited widely in Europe. In 1992 he was awarded the prestigious Rijksmusuem commission that resulted in a book and exhibition at the Rijksmuseum. Selections from his book Wall Street Stop ( 2010) introduced his work to the US in Being American at the SVA Gallery in 2011 and Metro here in spring of 2014. His previous three monographs were published in 1993\, 2002\, and Wall Street Stop in 2010.

\n

Signed copies of the Aperture publication will be avail able at the exhibition. http://www.aperture.org/event /reinier-gerritsen-conversation-rene-put/
