Open Source Gallery presents &ldquo\;Eat Me\,&rdquo\; new mu ltimedia work by Sofia Szamosi.

\n

The Open Source Gallery is proud to present &ldquo\;Eat me\,&rdquo\; the first solo show of New York based art ist\, Sofia Szamosi. Curated by Keith Miller\, Sofia Szamosi&rsquo\;s &ldqu o\;Eat Me&rdquo\; explores the relationship between the artist&rsquo\;s sen se of self\, food and contemporary notions of body image through a series o f video self-portraits. Through exquisitely shot\, confrontational images\, Szamosi work addresses the complexities of body image and food\, illustrat ed through sensual\, grotesque\, and occasionally disturbing imagery. Remin iscent of advertisements of overtly sexualized women selling the newest com modities\, guilty pleasures\, and unhealthy sweets\, the artist looks direc tly into the camera\, confronting the viewer. With her own body as a canvas \, Szamosi explores consumption and desire\, making herself both target and victimizer of the almost inescapable excess in our consumer-based society.

\n

&ldquo\;Eat Me&rdquo\; presents a tenuous balance of an enticing e roticism and a troubling repulsion. The viewer ends up involved in Szamosi& rsquo\;s contemplation of food and complicit in her predicaments\, which ra nge from enjoyment to humiliation. She spits multi-colored candies like a f ountain or seductively licks a lollypop\; she drowns in syrup and coughs up sprinkles. In each case\, the viewer must decide where to draw the line:wh ere does indulgence end and obsession begin? Szamosi&rsquo\;s work lays bar e the conflicted relationship we have with pleasure\, the body\, and what w e mean by free will. Alternately sexy and sickening\, &ldquo\;Eat Me&rdquo\ ; walks the delicate line between solipsistic desire and self-destruction.& nbsp\;

\n

Sofia Szamosi lives and works in New York\, New York. Sofia& rsquo\;s music videos have been released by labels Sweat It Out and Dim Mak \, and her photobooth photography has been featured in Russh Magazine and t he Gallatin Review. Her artwork has been represented in the Gallatin Arts F estival\, Superchief Gallery\, and at the International Photobooth Conventi on in Chicago.

Tripoli Gallery is pleased to present Jonathan Beer and Michael Chiarello in a two-man show ti tled Poetics of Space. The exhibition will be on view at 30a Jobs Lane\, Southampton\, NY\, from November 1st through November 24th\, with a public opening reception on Saturday\, November 1st from 5 to 7 p.m.

\n

Poetics of Space brings together sculpture by local artist Michael Chiarello and pa intings/mixed media work by Jonathan Beer&mdash\;two artists whose work tak es divergent approaches to space and spatial concerns yet comes together ae sthetically in a balance of forcefulness and poetics. The title for the exh ibition is borrowed from Gaston Bachelard&rsquo\;s 1958 text\, La poeti que de l'espace\; a simultaneous critique of poetry and philosophical search for meaning in all spaces life occupies. With use of thin lines\, Ch iarello transforms steel into an open\, breathable form that naturally take s into account both positive and negative space\; inviting the viewer to no t only observe but exist within the space of the work. Jonathan Beer&rsquo\ ;s work challenges our notions of space within the 2-dimensional canvas\, g oing beyond traditional illusionistic devices as he simultaneously construc ts and deconstructs pathways leading in and out of the picture plane\; tran sitioning between purely abstract and recognizable forms.

\n

Jonathan Beer was born in New Orleans\, Louisiana in 1988 and received his BFA from Sch ool of Visual Arts in 2010 and his MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2012. He was awarded a 3rd Year Post Graduate Fellowship at the New York Ac ademy of Art for 2013. Beer has had solo shows at MDC Museum of Art + Desig n in Miami\, FL\; Kathleen Cullen Fine Art\, NY\; Georgia Tech&rsquo\;s Fer st Center for the Arts\, Atlanta\, GA\, among others. His work has been exh ibited internationally at Galerie Delta in Rotterdam\, Netherlands and at t he Siauliai Art Gallery in Lithuania. In 2011\, he co-founded Art-Rated\, a blog dedicated to articles and interviews on the contemporary art scene. H e has been in two group shows at Tripoli Gallery in 2013 and 2014. Beer cur rently lives and works in Newburgh\, NY.

\n

Michael Chiarello was bor n in New York in 1979 and grew up in Northport\, Long Island. He earned his BFA from Maryland Institute and College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore in 2001 . His public works include Full\, Merriweather Post Pavillion\, Columbia\, MD\; Rising Landscape/Boundless\, Town &\; Country Real Estate\, Bridg ehampton\, NY\; Highway 1\, Mather Hospital\, Port Jefferson\, NY\ ; Konner Development\, Bridgehampton\, NY\; and Dodds &\; Eder Sculpture Garden\ , Sag Harbor\, NY. Chiarello has exhibited at Sperone Westwater Gallery\, G alerie LeLong\, and Robert Miller Gallery in New York\, NY\; Energy Gallery in Toronto\, Canada\; and locally at the Montauk Beach House and The Ark P roject in Watermill\, among others. He has been exhibiting with Tripoli Gal lery since 2011. Chiarello currently lives and works in East Hampton\, NY.\n

Chelsea : \;It is with pleasure and pride that Viridian Artists is fea turing past and present Viridian Artists in two upcoming 45th \;Anniver sary Exhibitions. These exhibitions will be occurring October 21st \;th rough November 8th \;and November 11th \;through November 29th\, 20 14. There will be receptions on Thursday Oct. 23 and Thursday Nov. 13\, 6-8 pm.

\n

As one of the first artist-owned galleries in the New York City art world\, Viridian began its existence in Soho when Soho was just beginning to be an art destination. In 1969\, a gro up of Long Island artist formed a gallery just off West Broadway called Sec ond Story Spring Street\, the parent of Viridian Artists before SoHo was So Ho.

\n

Viridian moved from there to beco ming the only artist owned gallery on 57th \;St where it remained until 2001 in the NY Gallery Building. As the city was digging out from under th e tragedy of 9/11\, Viridian was moving to 530 W 25th \;in Chelsea wher e it remained until 2011\, moving then to its current location at 548 West 28th \;Street.

\n

Over the years som e of the original artists have remained with the gallery while others have departed and then returned. With the gallery since its inception are Janet Bohman\, Bernice Faegenburg\, and Virginia Evans Smit. Barbara K Schwartz\, Susan Sills\, Oi Sawa\, and Tazuko Fujii have been the gallery nearly as l ong. Other artists with the gallery since before 2000 include May DeViney\, Renee Borkow and the Estate of Bruce Rosen.

\n

The artists of Viridian draw from the complicated and often contrad ictory currents of modern life and contemporary culture to create their art . The gallery has always prized esthetic diversity and each Viridian Artist \, past and present\, has a particular approach to representation and a uni que way of decoding reality.

\n

As comme rcial galleries become artist-owned and cooperative galleries become more r espected for their high quality art and the freedom they give their artists \, Viridian has maintained that critical balance necessary to compete in to day&rsquo\;s diverse art community. Today\, surviving the heyday of commerc ialism as art and art as real estate\, Viridian continues.

Thomas Erben is pleased to present the gallery&rsquo\;s firs t exhibition with Roza El-Hassan (b. 1966\, Budapest)\, an artist of dual Hungarian/Syrian nationality. Installing wooden figures and mixed media sculptures with works on paper and wall-drawings\, El-Hassan m erges many contradictory qualities into a multi-faceted and nuanced reflect ion on the human condition.

Roza El-Hassan&rsquo\;s social inter vention and social design projects &ndash\; involving materials like wicker and adobe - as well as objects and drawings\, have been exhibited widely a nd internationally. Institutional solo exhibitions include Kunstmuseum Base l (2012)\; Mü\;csarnok/Kunsthalle\, Budapest (2006)\; The Drawing Cente r\, New York (2003)\; Secession\, Vienna (2000)\; Ludwig Museum Budapest an d De Vleeshal\, Netherlands (both 1999)\; and Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum\ , Graz (1995). She represented Hungary in 1997 at the Venice Biennale.

El-Hassan&rsquo\;s sculptures are at once solid and ethereal. Assemb led from pieces of roughly hewn wood &ndash\; small splinters joined to hea vy blocks &ndash\; these figures are carved by a hand alternating between t he violent and the gentle. Blank or rudimentary faces combine with sketch-l ike body parts or carefully contoured planks into intuitive impressions: in ternal states projected in wood. Outer roughness is contrasted with a calm radiating from within\, further enhanced by the partial coloring of some sc ulptures in light washes\, with details added in pencil. These solemn works are balanced with more energetic pieces\, like the haphazardly clad Re d Man (2007)\, whose laughing face is painted a bright scarlet\, match ing the blanket on which he is sitting.

Similar qualities are pr esent in El-Hassan&rsquo\;s works on paper\, and throughout the artist&rsqu o\;s career her drawings have been the constant holding all other activitie s together. Some of these works come about as sketches for sculpture\, perf ormance and architecture\; time is a central aspect\, and many are produced in a diary-like fashion. Abstract tangles mix with vague figures\, collage d pieces of torn paper and fabric\, translucent fields\, vibrantly colored shapes\, smudged pencil. As grave as the subject matters may be\, the light ness and openness of the work suggests a process of searching rather than s tating\, a subtle sensitivity in fraught political climates.

The tentative\, probing nature of El-Hassan&rsquo\;s drawings is reflected thr ough her entire practice\, and what may at first glance seem makeshift is a lways underpinned with careful formal and material consideration.

LYNCH THAM is pleased to present select carbon works by the celebrated Italian artist Gug lielmo Achille Cavellini. \; The year 2014 is an important marker in Ca vellini&rsquo\;s career as art institutions across Europe and the United St ates celebrate the centenary of his birth. \; In addition to the galler y presentation\, a local Cavellini Festival\, organized by Mark Bloch is sc heduled from \;November 14-16. On \;November 14\, the library at th e Museum of Modern Art\, New York\, will host a reception and special viewi ng of their vast Cavellini archive. \; The weekend will also include a series of performances and interventions at various New York museums and no n-profit spaces.

\n

 \;

\n

The exhibition at LYNCH THAM includes Cavellini&rsquo\;s ontological c arbon series created from 1970 to 1990. \; The works feature fully and partially charred pictures and objects\; including geometric abstraction of chromatic scale with portraits and image of Italy&rsquo\;s physical outlin e as an aesthetic and personal symbol. These pieces contributed to the deep innovation Cavellini had undertaken in his work and when combined\, in ter ms of background and form\, carbon became an absolute texture\, which expan ded through a continued citation. \;

\n

 \;

\n

Cavellini engaged in an extensive postage-art exchange for which he became well known. \; \;This exchange turned him into the leader of a new way of communicating in art. \; He became a mythical figure for a generation of underground artists and was regarded as a liberator that would break the chains of a closed system that often ex cluded artists. \; In 1970\, he invented the term \;autostorici zzazione \;(self-historicization) and started a long work of conce ptual self-promotion\, which sought to bypass the roles of the critic and t he market.

\n

 \;

\n

C avellini was born in Brescia\, Lombardy where he lived and worked until he died in 1990. \; His artist&rsquo\;s books are represented in the perma nent holdings of New York&rsquo\;s Franklin Furnace and in the archive on 2 0th century art maintained by the Venice Biennale. His work is in many priv ate and public collections including the Civiche Raccolte Comune di Milano\ , Museo Pecci Prato\, Museo MART Rovereto\, Museo di Cavalese Trento\, Coll ezione citta di Pesaro\, Civica Raccolta del disegno Sal\, FRAC Nord Pas de Calais and Le Consortium Dijon in France\, among many others. \;
