The Intuitionists \;is a collaborative artist p roject inspired by Colson Whitehead's 1999 novel of the same name&mdash\;a work of speculative fiction that explores the relationships between progres s\, technology\, and difference. The exhibition considers how the collectio n\, the database\, and the aggregate serve as complementary models for the organization of information and objects in flux. Deploying an innovative an d idiosyncratic selection process that matches the phrases from a single pa ragraph of Whitehead's book to keywords that organize The Drawing Center&rs quo\;s Viewing Program database (e.g. &ldquo\;autobiographical\,&rdquo\; &l dquo\;geometric\,&rdquo\; &ldquo\;historical\,&rdquo\; &ldquo\;consumer cul ture\,&rdquo\; etc.)\, the artists Heather Hart\, Steffani Jemison\, and Ji na Valentine have invited over sixty members of the Viewing Program to subm it artworks responding to a word or phrase from the novel. Each item in the exhibition is hung according to the sequence determined by Whitehead's tex t. The Lab gallery features a collaboration by Hart\, Jemison\, and Valenti ne\, also inspired by their chosen paragraph from the novel\, using its wor ds and letters to form an interpretive drawing. \;

The artis ts in \;The Intuitionist \;are: Shaun Acton\, Valerio Berr uti\, A.J.

Creating a temporary habitat of the borrowed\, procured and hand grown\, \;The Perception of Wilderness in The Garden of Us\, a site-based installation will explore how we relate to nature. \;T he recognition of nature is a realization of self and a true understanding of self\, serves as a tool to access states of higher consciousness. What i s nature\, what is wilderness\, what is wild? Is it a distant idea or is it all encompassing? Is an age old tree growing in a city lot any different f rom an ancient tree thriving deep within the forest? By blurring these line s we are faced with a unique wilderness that invites us to reconsider the p lants\, trees\, cracks\, and crevices that make up our reality.

Yancey Richardson is pleased to present The Thing Itself\, a  \;summer group show examining the use of the medium of \;photograp hy as subject matter in the photo-based practice of a \;number of conte mporary artists. From those looking at the tools and \;materials of pho tography &ndash\; cameras\, paper\, and scanners\, for \;example &ndash \; to family snapshots or images in the media\, the unifying theme of inclu ded works is self-reflexivity. As Marshall McLuhan \;would say: &ldquo\ ;The medium is the message.&rdquo\; The exhibition will feature a group of artists represented by Yancey \;Richardson\, as well as other contempor ary photo-based \;practitioners\, including: Mary Ellen Bartley\, Anne Collier\, Sara Cwyner\, Roe Ethridge\, Bryan Graf\, Bill Jacobson\, Kenneth  \;Josephson\, Laura Letinsky\, Matt Lipps\, Vik Muniz\, Paul Mpagi&nbs p\;Sepuya\, Alyson Shotz\, Laurie Simmons\, Wolfgang Tillmans\, \;Berti en van Manen\, and Christopher Williams.
The nature of the photographi c medium continues to change \;through various technological advances a nd an ever-increasing \;movement towards digitization and democratizati on. There remains almost no materiality to the medium \;as film\, darkr ooms\, and paper recede into obsolescence. In response\, many artists have undergone a \;renewed evaluation of and investigation into what makes s omething a photograph\, taking on as their \;subject the tools and mate rials of the medium\, positioned as part critique of and part artifact from the \;rapidly disappearing analog world. These investigations often re veal the artistʼs increased awareness of the physicality of photographic pr ints in an image-soaked digital world.
Photographs by Wolfgang Tillman s\, Bryan Graf\, Vik Muniz and \;Alyson Shotz dwell on the materiality of photographic paper itself \;while Christopher Williams and Laurie Si mmons consider the \;hardware of cameras and Mary Ellen Bartley creates abstractions \;from her old 4 x 5 transparency sleeves. Sara Cwynar sc ans \;illustrations from an out of date darkroom manual\, creating a&nb sp\;distorted mash-up of analog and digital. In Special Treatment\, \;( above)\, Matt Lipps utilizes images from the 1970s multivolume \;Time L ife series Library of Photography to create a diorama-like assemblage of im ages. In the work of \;both Lipps and Laura Letinsky\, who cuts out exi sting images from her own work\, from other artists\, \;and from popula r media\, to create quasi-collage still-life compositions\, we see a flatte ning of hierarchies \;between fine art\, media image\, and amateur phot ography. Like smartphone cameras today\, the advent \;of the Polaroid c amera made it possible not only for everyone to be a photographer but to se e the \;image immediately. Kenneth Josephsonʼs 1965 portrait\, Matthew\ , (right)\, celebrates this new \;technology. In the image\, Josephsonʼ s son holds a Polaroid image of himself upside down in front of his \;f ace as though holding a camera.
Similarly\, other works in the exhibit ion use formal elements to draw attention to the conditions of their \; own making. Both Bertien van Manen and Paul Mpagi Sepuya establish the valu e of prints as both \;tangible objects and vessels of image and meaning . In van Manenʼs series Give Me Your Image\, the \;artist photographed treasured family photos in the homes of European immigrants\, highlighting the \;waning practice of taking\, developing and displaying family snap shots. Elsewhere\, Sepuya \;underscores the very objecthood of his phot ographic prints highlighting the relationship and difference \;between image and object.

The Painting Center is pleased to present Inside and Out\, a group exhibition of works by 15 different artists. Inside and Out presents the works of fifteen MFA painting candidates from Indiana University Bloom ington. These artists reference a plurality of sources in their work\, buil ding upon tradition and figuration with a focus on individualized expressio n. The works navigate the liminal space between observation and abstraction and articulate the tensions that result when referencing worlds both insid e and outside of the self. Many of the featured artists visualize this tens ion in self-created realities that evolve from the figure. Mike Reeves tran smutes abstract collages into narrative scenes that expose the arrested sex ual and social development of today's male youth. Rhizome: Looking Out\, by Nathan Foxton\, synthesizes information from reality and imagination to cr eate a fragmented space that hovers between the possible and the impossible . Zach Koch synthesizes popular culture and art historical references devel oping hectic overlays that reference the inundation of imagery available in current user-generated\, "infinite scroll" websites. Christina Weaver is a mong those who address the aforementioned tension by a reevaluation of the traditional practice of direct observation. Her painting Maw culls from sti ll life\, fabric arts and drapery to reference the body and consider gender stereotypes. Greg Burak&rsquo\;s Moving captures moments of stasis\, accen tuating the poetry and tension hidden in the in-between. Others express thi s tension by imbuing purely psychological subjects with a sense of reality and substance. Nakima Ollin's abstractions are intimate worlds of color tha t simultaneously hold on to the picture plane and recede into infinite spac e\, suggesting both a physical and psychological landscape. Tyler Wilkinson &rsquo\;s collages explore the legacy of racial stereotypes and their effec t on issues of identity and self-worth. Joe Kameen&rsquo\;s invented narrat ives use chromatic color\, exaggerated action and humor to explore the exis tential and psychological questions of myth. Greg Watson&rsquo\;s sculptura l painting Rainbow Stela addresses physicality\, spirituality and the legac y of Minimalism with humor and playfulness. Other participating artists inc lude: Autumn Bussen\, Maria Korol\, Taylor Leaman\, Nathan Perry\, Taylor W oolwine\, and Ekaterina Vanovskaya.

The Painting Center is pleased to present an exhibition of r ecent paintings by Claire McConaughy. \;McConaughy makes open-ended vis ual fictions. \;Her recent body of work combines representation and pai nterly abstraction. Pulling imagery from a wide variety of sources such as literature\, poetry\, dreams\, family photos\, art historical references an d her imagination\, she constructs meaning through intuitive combinations a nd formal painting concerns. \;At times the scenes are everyday domesti c interiors or a typical view of a figurative subject\, but the scene is of ten infused with elements that transform the commonplace into a poetic inte rpretation. \;

\n

Claire McConaughy lives and works in Brooklyn\, NY. She earned her MFA from Columbia University and her BFA from Carnegie M ellon University. She has exhibited in galleries including \;"Selec tions 45" \;at The Drawing Center\, \;"Persona" \ ;at the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery\, College of St. Elizabeth\, \;< em>"Reductive"\, \;at Jeffrey Leder Gallery\,  \;"Portrait s" \;at Storefront Gallery and others.

Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present the second editio n of \;Summer Mixer\, a group exhibition comprised of artists making their debut offering with the gallery. Providing a fresh narrative t o the exhibition space\, \;Summer Mixer \;artists present traditional and new-media works\, featuring painting\, weaving\, collage\, and digital art techniques. This exhibition will open with an artist&rsquo\ ;s reception on Thursday\, July 17th\, 2014.

\n

Andrew Schoultz&rsquo\ ;s (b. 1975\, Wisconsin) paintings and drawings serve as an historical comm entary to the contemporary world as he sees it. The artist illustrates a te nsion between universal entities: the official faction and the opposing ind ividual\, the unavoidable clash of the individual versus natural calamity\, and the perpetual incongruity of what is rational and irrational. Schoultz recognizes these themes from historical art that still resonate today: &ld quo\;The inspiration for my drawings and paintings come from medieval Germa n map-making from the 14th century and Persian and Indian miniatures. [&hel lip\;] A lot of what I see going on in these particular forms of art are th e same things happening today\, it perfectly illustrates how history repeat s itself.&rdquo\;

\n

Erin M. Riley (b. 1985\, Massachusetts) creates h and-dyed wool tapestries\, woven on a floor loom. The artist transforms ima ges that have been captured in a fleeting moment into detailed works. Riley sources &ldquo\;selfies&rdquo\; and car crashes\, devoting about a week&rs quo\;s worth of time to weaving each piece. By investing her time and perso nal story\, these voyeuristic images evolve from what was once transitory i nto something tangible and substantial: &ldquo\;I grew up with a single mom and three sisters so I was very used to girls and not necessarily sexualit y\, most of my work is just women\, I don&rsquo\;t feel comfortable weaving men. I weave men as these trucks or as symbols&mdash\;a lot of my automobi le work is about how I kind of see men.&rdquo\;

\n

Guy Yanai (b. 1977\ , Haifa\, Israel) paints oil on linen landscapes\, portraiture of houseplan ts\, home exteriors\, and office interiors&mdash\;bringing new perspective by color-blocking and flattening his quotidian surroundings. By simplifying the landscape in this way\, Yanai develops a meaningful narrative between the artist and the object/space as an insider: &ldquo\;In my work I find th e flatter I go\, the deeper it is. It&rsquo\;s a strange thing\, somehow I found out when I pair things down to their absolute essential&mdash\;of wha t it would be like for you to \;kindof recognize something&mda sh\;then some kind of alchemy happens.&rdquo\;

\n

Kristen Schiele (b. 1970\, Texas) combines elements of collage\, screen printing\, and painting within her signature color palette. Vivid shapes contrast with darker pers pective line work\, giving the viewer an intimate look into an architectura l scene that is simultaneously very human and almost alien: &ldquo\;I use l ots of different kinds of processes to cut up the surface\, jar the plane a nd shift the focus in the work. It helps me feel I&rsquo\;m putting time in the piece if not just offering parallel peripheral information.&rdquo\;

\n

Michael Theodore (b. 1968\, New York) creates two-dimensional works t hat have a three-dimensional quality\, by utilizing both traditional art-ma king techniques and digital mediums. Theodore combines free-hand drawing wi th digitally rendered patterns using a robotic drawing arm&mdash\;the robot conceived and designed by the artist himself&mdash\;which carry out visual representations of music\, furthering his exploration of perceptual sensat ions and combining technology with organic elements: &ldquo\;[specific work s] explore new possibilities for new art making in a world in which the bio logical and the mechanical are increasingly enmeshed and entangled.&rdquo\;

\n

Robert Larson (b. 1968\, California) scours the streets for his pa lette&mdash\;a sort of urban meditation&mdash\;repurposing discarded tobacc o packaging into meticulously arranged patterns\, with each piece hand-cut to form geometric designs. Time and weather act as a natural patina to his palette\, the artist explains: &ldquo\;[The paper&rsquo\;s] once identical and uniform surfaces begin to fade and abrade with exposure to the elements &mdash\;turning them from homogeneity into infinite variety. From this coll ision of man-made materials and the forces of nature a dynamic palette of w eathered hues\, tones and textures is inadvertently created.&rdquo\;

\n< p>Sam Friedman&rsquo\;s (b. 1984\, New York) abstract landscapes utilize pe rspective and proportion. The continuous layering of pulsating colors\, the ir combined effect comes off almost as deletion\, obscuring objects from th e viewer&rsquo\;s periphery. The lines and shapes seem to be in conversatio n with one another\, creating an otherworldly panorama. Each work inspires something different for each viewer: &ldquo\;Everyone is going to have some life experience that is going to have a connotation for a particular visua l thing because\, as humans\, we are going to look for those connections [& hellip\;] I like the fact that I can create in the viewer&rsquo\;s mind a r epresentation of something that ultimately relates to them.&rdquo\;

Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects p resents The Jam 3.0\, a group exhibition and installation featuring contemp orary painters- Andrea Bergart\, Matt Phillips\, Lauren Luloff\, Meghan Bra dy\, Giordanne Salley\, Peter LaBier\, Tim Lokiec\, Jackie Gendel\, along w ith Moroccan rugs from Katherine Bernhardt&rsquo\;s Magic Flying Carpets co llection\, and a 1953 abstraction by Jan Müller.

\n

Andrea Bergart and Matt Phillips will paint an abstract mural covering the walls of the galle ry. The paintings in the exhibition are hung on top of the mural. The Jam 3 .0 takes the idea of layering from quilting and sound mixing-- pattern on p attern\, painting on top of painting\, mixing representation with abstracti on-- to transform the gallery space into a visual cornucopia where exquisit e Moroccan rugs\, artist designed furniture\, jewelry and textiles are mixe d together with paintings. Concurrently\, Bergart and Phillips are also fea tured in an exhibition at The New Bedford Art Museum in MA\, that borrows i ts&rsquo\; theme and title from SHFAP&rsquo\;s exhibition. Bergart and Phil lips previously collaborated on an earlier version of The Jam at SHFAP in t he summer of 2012. Both artists look to textiles for inspiration as much as abstract painting\; their DIY geometries relate to both African and Americ an textile design including Gee&rsquo\;s Bend style quilting.

\n

The J am 3.0 continues at our pop-up space at 237 Eldridge with a collaborative d rawing/mural conceived by Peter LaBier\, Tim Lokiec and Jackie Gendel\, exe cuted by Peter LaBier. LaBier\, Lokiec and Gendel are New York based experi mental painters and friends who recently exhibited collaborative drawings i n an exhibition in Houston TX.

\n

Andrea Bergart is a Brooklyn based a rtist whose work includes painting\, textile and jewelry design. She receiv ed a Fulbright grant to work in Ghana where she studied bead-making\, desig ned commercial textiles and painted a large scale outdoor mural.
