Sargent&rsquo\;s Daughters is pleased to present &ldquo\;The Living Room&rdquo\;\, an exhibition of paint ings by the New York based artist Brandi Twilley. This will be Twilley&rsqu o\;s first solo exhibition and will open on Tuesday\, July 26 6-8pm and be on view through August 26th\, 2016.

In &ldquo\;The Living Room &rdquo\; Twilley recreates\, from an amalgamation of memory\, Google search es\, dreams and the few surviving Polaroids\, her childhood home\, which bu rned to the ground when she was sixteen in 1999. The ten paintings present the room from every angle and encompass multiple years\, showing the slow d ecline of the house as it becomes consumed by water\, waste\, and\, eventua lly\, fire. The paintings are rendered in the saturated and murky colors Tw illey associates with analog photography and\, though devoid of human figur es\, are filled with human presence.

Twilley began the painti ngs without plans\, using free association to let them take shape as she re membered\, following what felt familiar and real. As such the works are arc haeological reconstructions dependent on emotional recollections. Twilley&r squo\;s paintings present a challenge to realism as she incorporates the im agined landscape of childhood that suffuses the present in memories of the past.

Brandi Twilley (b. 1982\, Oklahoma City\, OK) lives and works in Brooklyn\, NY. She received her MFA from Yale University\, New Hav en\, CT in 2011 and has recently exhibited at Hood Gallery\, Brooklyn and A .K.A. Gallery\, Oklahoma City\, OK.

THINGS is an exhibition of objects m ade by artists best known for their work in journalism and media. Drafted d uring moments of leisure and distributed largely through social means\, the paintings\, drawings and printed matter collected in the exhibition THINGS harness the quiet radicality of their activist origins. From the hyper-sex ualized drawings and comics of filmmaker Curt McDowell\, t o the &lsquo\;60s revisionist wall reliefs and high gloss paintings of vide o artist Tom Rubnitz\, through music journalist and AIDS c olumnist Robert Fordʼs underground black culture &lsquo\;z ine\, THING &mdash\; for &ldquo\;she knows who she is&rdquo\; &mdash\; the tactics on display carry through to a younger generation\, whose object-mak ing bolsters or elaborates the artists&rsquo\; primary\, time-based practic es. Through expressive self-portraiture\, utopian world making\, and scene- charting &lsquo\;zine cultures\, the materials assembled in THINGS evince t he intensely vital and political potential of craft to reflect the world as it appears or is perceived at immensely personal moments of artistic refle ction.

\n

THINGS is presented by ONE Gay &\; Lesbian National Archives and PARTICIPANT INC\, in collaboration with Anthology Film Archives\, Vide o Data Bank\, and Visual AIDS. The exhibition wil l be on view at ONE Gay &\; Lesbian National Archives from September 17 &ndash\; December 11\, 2016.

\n

Time-bas ed art at Anthology Film Archives includes: a restoration retrospective of the films of Curt McDowell\, a retrospect ive of Tom Rubnitz video works\, as well as titles by Seth Bogart + Jennifer Stratford\, Brice Dellsperger\, Nazli Dinç \;el\, Mariah Garnett\, Aimee Goguen\, Steve Hall + Cathee Wilkins\, Dynast y Handbag\, Josef Kraska\, Young Joon Kwak + Veli-Matti Ho ikka\, Barry Morse\, Brontez Purnell\, Vanessa Roveto and Stephen Winter.

&ld quo\;Curt was curt\, cute\, controversial\, and not celibate\,&rdquo\; wrot e friend and collaborator George Kuchar. Curt McDowell wor ked in San Francisco from the late 1960s until his death in 1987 &ndash\; a period that witnessed the Summer of Love\, gay liberation\, and the onset of HIV/AIDS\, to which he succumbed at the age of forty-two. The author of numerous films that recast the American dream of plenty in pansexual terms\ , McDowell\, like so many artists of his generation\, indulged in the era&r squo\;s carnal abundance\, and his appetites and experiences are reflected in his work\, which alternates between the revealing and the puerile. His s hort films\, such as Weiners and Buns Musical (1972) and Loads (1980)\, cel ebrate sex as well as genre-riffing and autobiographical narratives (McDowe ll&rsquo\;s insatiable desire for seducing straight men is explicitly docum ented in his 16-mm works)\, and bear the influences of Jack Smith&rsquo\;s lush\, DIY\, camp aesthetic\, Rainer Werner Fassbinder&rsquo\;s explosive m elodrama\, and Nan Goldin&rsquo\;s glimpses of countercultural bohemia. McD owell exhibited his work in illustration and painting during one\, 24-hour exhibition during his lifetime.

\n

Over the course of the 1980s and up until his untimely death from HIV/AIDS relat ed complications in 1992\, Tom Rubnitz captured the person alities and energy of the East Village scene in his loony\, anarchic\, and hallucigenically-colored short videos. Screwball TV broadcasts from an alte rnate reality\, these videos take the form of cooking shows\, music videos\ , or kids shows\, featuring downtown artists like Ann Magnuson\, and drag l egends-in-the-making RuPaul\, the Lady Bunny\, and Hapi Phace. As Amy Taubi n wrote\, Rubnitz's "glitter-dusted videos distill the sensibility of a gen eration of TV babies whose venue of choice was the Pyramid Club rather than the Whitney Museum." Rubnitz and his demented TV takeoffs live on in the Y ouTube era\, with the ever-popular Pickle Surprise racking up over two mill ion views and inspiring fan remixes and remakes. Rubnitz maintained a fine art studio practice and in SoHo and was included in various exhibitions\, i ncluding a three-person show at Artists&rsquo\; Space in 1980.

\n

Robert Ford was a freelance jour nalist\, publisher\, and activist born and raised in Chicago. Creative Dire ctor of Rose Records\, Ford was a frequent contributor to local publication s like Jam Sessions\, Chicago Music Magazine\, Jazzgram in addition to main taining regular columns in Planet Rock and Babble. His groundbreaking Afric an-American-focused AIDS column ran in Pulse magazine until the time of his death in 1993. Ford collaborated with Trent Adkins and Laurence Warren to found Think Ink\, an arts magazine that was\, &ldquo\;very Black\, not very gay but queerfriendly.&rdquo\; The publishing trio unleashed THING into th e world shortly thereafter. Running from 1989-1993\, THING &ndash\; &ldquo\ ;She Knows Who She Is&rdquo\; &ndash\; became legendary in &lsquo\;zine com munities\, with distribution quantities ultimately rising to 3\,000. Ford a nnounced the final THING after the publication of the 10th issue\, in order to focus on freelance writing projects.

MIYAKO YOSHINAGA\, in association with Savery Gallery\, is pleased to announce \;< strong>Endurance\, \;a \;solo exhibition of recent paintin gs by \;Philadelphia-based artist Joan Wadleigh Curran  \;on view from July 21 \;through August 1 4\, 2016. An opening reception will be \;held on Thurs day\, July 21\, \;6-8PM. \;

\n

Curran&rsquo\;s paintings explore the beauty\, res iliency\, and impermanence of discarded objects\, building materials\, item s cast aside\, things lost\, and the natural world in the midst of it all.< /p>\n

In his essay written for the exhibiti on\, Stan Mir asks of us: &ldquo\;The average viewer at the Met looks at a painting for seventeen seconds. How much does one care about the detritus i n the street? &hellip\;.Curran&rsquo\;s eyes become our eyes. She&rsquo\;s always asking us to imagine this\, except she never provides a narrative. W hy would she need to? We&rsquo\;re already living amongst these things.&rdq uo\;

\n

Her paintings walk a narrow line between por trait and landscape\, challenging the viewer to come to a conc lusion. Among the works in the exhibition are &lsquo\;Transmission&rsquo\;\ , a large-scale oil on canvas which interweaves the blank reflector shields of a cell phone tower with thick evergreen tree branches that wrap the str ucture\, vibrant and in motion\; and &lsquo\;Security\,&rsquo\; a rich fiel d of a Mars-like color over taken with seemingly disparate objects like sec urity cameras\, amputated tree trunks\, and unraveling blankets that\, when seen as a collection\, appear to be drawing closer together.

Mitchell-Innes &\; Nash is delighted to present Jessica Stockhol der: The Guests All Crowded Into the Dining Room on view in our Chelsea gallery from August 25 through October 1\, 2016. This will b e the gallery&rsquo\;s third solo exhibition with the artist. \; Please join us for an opening reception Wednesday\, September 14\, 6-8 pm . \;

\n

The Guests All Crowded Into the Dining Room will feature works from several facets of Stockholder&rsquo\;s practice\, including a large-scale site-responsive in stallation in addition to distinct bodies of studio works. \;

\n

The studio-based works are made from both purc hased and found materials\, all of which are designed and manufactured by o ther people - furniture\, plastic goods\, fabrics\, hardware\, paint\, pape r. The line between a &lsquo\;raw&rsquo\; material and &lsquo\;found&rsquo\ ; object is blurry\, and the intended-life of these objects is discarded bu t not forgotten. \; For example\, a square of plastic floor and an oran ge rope are repurposed as formal\, painterly elements\, and yet their origi ns are clearly legible. \; The history and intended-use of these object s confront the viewer as Stockholder deftly engages the power of synergy\, combining other peoples&rsquo\; thoughts and objects into a form distinctly her own.

\n

Many of the works on view r elate to Stockholder&rsquo\;s ongoing project of Assists\, sculptures which must attach to something other than themselves -- a bed\, the wall\, furni ture\, other sculpture\, or appliances. \; Each Assist is made up of fo ur parts: two base parts and two top parts. The bases and tops are intercha ngeable. The Assists have a symbiotic relationship with everything around t hem. \; With the Assists\, Stockholder continues to explore questions o f boundary\, dependence\, and response to the landscape of human-made thing s\, notions which have been central to her practice to-date.

\n

Stockholder says\, &ldquo\;When I make something my self I have control over all of the details and can explore my thought proc ess spontaneously as I go. When I hire someone to make something for me [&h ellip\;] I utilize the systems embedded in other trades\, people's thinking and production methods. And in all cases when the work is exhibited it is dependent on the exhibition context\, which is replete with all kinds of me aning.&rdquo\;

\n

While the show consist s of many different materials and forms\, each work is accepted as a cohere nt\, composed whole. \; Stockholder prods at the gaps between nature an d human-made objects\, between authorship and anonymity\, between art\, man ufacturing and craft. \; The result is a destabilizing dynamism that th reatens to pull the center out past its edges.

Splotch features works by Lynda Benglis\, Walter Biggs \, Elisabeth Condon\, Nene Humphrey\, Andreas Kocks\, Sol LeWitt\, Riad Mia h\, Jamie Powell\, Taney Roniger\, Karen Tompkins\, Julia von Eichel\, Aaro n Williams\, Magdalen Wong\, and Jian-Jun Zhang.

\n

The artists&rsquo\; approaches are structured\, yet left up to elements of chance and failure in the drawings\, paintings\, photographs\, prints\, and sculptures in the show. Some of the artistic processes include casting\, cutting\, and wrapping. Lynda Benglis continues to focus on the physicality of materials in Hot Spot\, 1999\, a b iomorphic form cast in aluminum. Combining elements of drawing\, painting\, and architecture\, Andreas Kocks utilizes cut paper and p ins to create works that examine space and time. Meticulous and methodical\ , Julia von Eichel simultaneously embraces and conceals th e underlying structure of wood dowels\, wiffle balls\, and thread with acry lic covered silk in her amorphous and jagged sculpture protruding from a co rner.

\n

Inspired by pop culture and car toons\, Jamie Powell&rsquo\;s paintings incorporate elemen ts of chance and improvisation as she manipulates the canvas by dyeing\, cu tting\, and tying pieces to \;create sculptural forms\, revealing the u nderlying frame. Magdalen Wong appropriates found imagery in mass media and commercial packaging\; familiar objects are decontextuali zed and abstracted in her cutout milk splashes. Carving into a painted MDF surface with a router\, Aaron Williams recreates graffiti imagery in photographic sources\, expanding the idea of mark marking and ma terials.

\n

Using patterns and precise p uncturing\, Taney Roniger creates biomorphic and cellular- like forms\, referencing landscapes\, mythology\, and geometric shapes foun d in nature. Walter Biggs&rsquo\;s abstract paintings of g raphite\, sand\, and acrylic are the results of play between expressionist gesture and labor-intensive finishing processes.

\n

Materials can ultimately dictate the outcome when they are rele ased onto surfaces &ndash\; the results can be unexpected and spontaneous. In his monoprint First Drop of Water (print series #1)\, J ian-Jun Zhang explores the physicality and connotations of water. He paints printing ink directly onto steel plates with calligraphy brushes before printing these gestural marks. Inspired by nature and her time in Sh anghai\, Elisabeth Condon begins with a pour of paint and then edits the surface by outlining dots\, manipulating contours\, and slic ing paint. \;

\n

Riad Miah < /strong>combines a calculated approach of using drops of paint\, geometric configurations\, and spontaneous brush marks to create his abstract paintin g that depict cellular and amoeba-like forms. Nene Humphrey also explores biological systems in her sculptural and performative works consisting of two and three-dimensional cerebral and cellular forms of syn thetic material. Influenced by the solar observations of the Italian astron omer\, physicist\, and philosopher Galileo Galilei in the early 17th century\, Karen Tompkins creates abstracted paintings on insulation board that closely resemble these sunspot drawings.

\n

With predetermined and self-imposed rules\, t hese artists explore the boundaries of various mediums as well as the tensi on between control and spontaneity. They also examine the body\, scientific and mathematical concepts\, nature\, pop culture\, and mass media. Dichoto mies examined include: absence and presence\, fluidity and stability\, geom etric and organic\, order and disorder.

\n

An opening reception will take place at Lesley Heller Workspace on July 20 from 6-8 pm. Splotch will also be on view at Sperone Westwater at 257 Bowery from July 7 to August 5\, 2016. A brochure will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.
