In the project space\, Eric C ahan's Data Mining takes its name from marketing research techniques that m easure web users' browsing patterns when they view fine art content online. A museum-goer spends an average of thirty seconds in front of an individua l work of art\, whereas a browser on Instagram or Pinterest spends only eig ht. Images flow past the eye one after another\, throwing into question lon g-held assumptions about the totemic nature of a work of art. Cahan mirrors this blurring process in his photographs\, transforming solarized image of water through a combination of techniques both digital and traditional. Th e resulting images\, luminescent yet opaque\, are as seductive as carnival mirrors\, yet ultimately reflect only the viewer's gaze. Though representat ional\, there silver swirls and bursts of color and shadow are so abstracte d that they challenge our notion of what a photograph actually communicates : a view of an object removed in time and space\, or nothing but the viewer 's assumptions about the image itself. \;

In the main gallery\, Milstei n\, long known for his images of planes in flight photographed from directl y below\, reverses the perspective in the current images\, offering views o f New York and Los Angeles taken from an altitude of 1\,000 - 2\,000 feet. The distance is far enough that the geometry of the urban streetscape\, inv isible from the ground\, emerges into surprising\, often elegant patterns\, as in the Masonic-inspired layout of the Park La Brea housing development in Los Angeles\, yet close enough that the scenes retain a human feeling\, whether it's the claustrophobia of tiny rectangular houses squeezed next to each other in virtually treeless grids. The images suggest that however ch aotic or inscrutable modern life might appear\, it is tied to age-old patte rns that guide in ways we don't immediately perceive\, but which neverthele ss guide us through our daily routines. \;

Koenig &\; Clinton is pleased to a nnounce Organic Situation\, a group exhibition that parses ideas about huma n relationships to both organic and engineered environments. Our contempora ry moment is one of the network society\, in which our increasingly mediate d experience of 'the natural world' is blurred between the virtual and the real. Organic Situation offers varying perspectives on the interdependent r oles of biology and technology in shaping perception\, experience\, and cre ative production. \;

Construing nature through language\, im age\, and speech act\, Paul Ramí\;rez Jonas mounts a grid of 165 prin ted sheets of paper to form Paper Moon (I Create as I Speak) (2008). A sing le excerpted sheet of the text reading 'I create as I speak' rests on a lec tern\, inviting an incantation. \;

Two paintings by Denise K upferschmidt draw on advertising\, architecture and design elements from th e early-20th Century to render 'universal' figures against graphic imagery of urban geometries. Peter Scott's High Line Billboard (2015) offers a tell ing view of visitors framed by a now-iconic architectural feature on the lo cal High Line park. Zoë\; Ghertner's False Fronts diptych captures the aspirational faç\;ades of the rural American West. \;

Assembling topologies out of discarded advertisement vinyl\, Kelly Jazvac's sculptural works coax new questions about landscape and disposability. Res embling natural rock formations\, the digital refuse lumps of Tyler Coburn' s Waste Management (2013-14) memorialize technological byproducts. \;
Photographs from Margaret Honda's series Les animaux du Mus&eacut e\;um national d'Histoire naturelle\, Paris (2005- 2007) present elusive im ages of threatened or extinct specimens. Also referencing nature morte\, th e sculptures of Jonathan Bruce Williams push the living dead into stereosco pic focus. \;

A grid of oil paintings by Peter Dreher depict s light recorded at regular intervals on one alpine ridge over several days ' time. Also in line with German Romanticism\, Miljohn Ruperto's lenticular photograph Do Your Best (2014) attempts to convey Caspar David Friedrich's seminal painting\, The Sea of Ice (1823-1824) in a newer medium. \;

Trading in the visual language of myths\, rituals\, dreams\, and p hotographic documentation\, Geoffrey Hendricks' Fluxus headstand performanc es invert the body's relationship to land\, sea\, and sky. Meanwhile\, the collaborative single-channel video and performance C.L.U.E. (Color Location Ultimate Experience) (2007) by A.L. Steiner + robbinschilds follows sentie nt bodies into the outdoors. \;

Recent Paintings
By
Camila Rocha

\n

Open Reception - Thursday\, July 9th. 8-11pm

\n

This exhibit ion attempts to share the artist&rsquo\;s search for identity. Inspired on societal rituals conjuring spirituality and the release from strict ideolog ical dogma\, these paintings and works on paper are about the carnal\, and passionate desires of the body. The work reflects collective performative a cts\, dealing with her motherland\, Brazil. The exhibition includes paintin gs and objects inspired by Carnival\, and ideas of the spiritual and politi cal structures associated with the event.
This exhibition displays pe rformative images intended to contradict the sterile state of daily life. F or Camila the use of exuberant color and texture are intended to provoke th e senses in a way that mirrors the synesthetic experience of carnival. Like wise the characters depicted in her imagery represent free scenarios of lib erated self-expression and primal human instincts\, using hybrids to convey a universal idea of the body.

Artist Statement

Today\, her oeuvre conjures a philosophical conversation in volving gender\, identity\, theories pertaining to materialism\, and femini sm. The priorities on her work arrives through an exploration of her cultur e where the artist is searching for identity\, inspired on her motherland\, Brazil\, and carnival archetypes that often echo social structures. This b ody of work conjures her interests in the formal aspects of traditional pai nting and representation\, where language of illusionism that throughout th e history of art has been linked to a heritage of objectification of the fe male body and product of the exotic.
&ldquo\;Painting in this way fac ilitates a kind of role reversal\, in which I am able to confront the histo ric &ldquo\;male gaze" that can be exploitive\, and lead to categorization. &rdquo\;

This exhibition is dedicated t o the memory of Mickey Straus.

\n

In 196 4\, inspired by both the long history of art and by imagery he found on con temporary printed postcards\, Roy Lichtenstein began to explore the genre o f land and seascapes\, using paint\, plastic\, enamel\, drawings\, collage\ , print\, and even film to realize his various works. Seascapes were an ess ential part of the artist&rsquo\;s lifelong exploration of psychological op tics\, light and his keen observations on the nature of field and ground. T hey were a genre he would revisit throughout his career in various media an d guises. Comprised of over 30 works form private lenders and the Roy Licht enstein Foundation\, the exhibition will include works from the 1960s-1990s . A collaboration between Guild Hall and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation\, Roy Lichtenstein: Between Sea and Sky celebrate the artist&rsquo\;s abiding relationship with the East End of New York and all that it inspired.

Masterpieces &\; Curiosities: Alfred Stieglitz's The Steerage focuses on Stieglitz&rsquo\;s enduring 1907 picture of steerage-c lass passengers aboard the ocean liner Kaiser Wilhelm II. This ima ge has often been regarded as evidence of the poor conditions under which m any immigrants arrived in America\; however\, Stieglitz took the photograph on a voyage to Europe. As such\, it is a document of peop le who were likely denied entry and citizenship to the United States. Stieg litz's concerns\, however\, were largely aesthetic rather than social-minde d: he was moved more by the picture's formal qualities than its subject mat ter. Stieglitz considered the work to be his greatest triumph in a long\, i llustrious career as a photographer\, stating later in life\, "If all my ph otographs were lost\, and I&rsquo\;d be represented by just one\, The S teerage\, I&rsquo\;d be satisfied."

\n
\n
\n

< em>Alfred Stieglitz's The Steerage demonstrates the artist's ceaseless promotion of the image\, from its reproduction in Camera Work\, S tieglitz&rsquo\;s high-minded art journal\, to popular magazines such as Vanity Fair. The exhibition will also feature Stieglitz's own accoun t of its creation\, in which he recalls:

\n
\n

How I hated the a tmosphere of the first class on that ship. One couldn&rsquo\;t escape the n ouveaux riches. I had to get away from that company. As I came to the end o f the [deck] I stood alone\, looking down. The whole scene fascinated me. I longed to escape from my surroundings and join those people. I saw a pictu re of shapes and underlying that the feeling I had about life. Should I try to put down this seemingly new vision that held me - people\, the common p eople\, the feeling of ship and ocean and sky and the feeling of release th at I was away from the mob called the rich? Here would be a picture based o n related shapes and on the deepest human feeling\, a step in my own evolut ion\, a spontaneous discovery.

\n
\n

The exhibition further exp lores the discrepancy in experience between those\, like Stieglitz\, travel ing in first-class\, and those in steerage. An exact model of the Kaise r Wilhelm II demonstrates the sheer scale of this impressive ocean lin er\, while vintage postcards depict the lavish interiors of its first-class cabins. By contrast\, Edward A. Steiner&rsquo\;s On the Trail of the I mmigrant\, published in 1906\, provides an unsparing account of the wr etched steerage conditions aboard the same ship.

\n

Despite the fact that < em>The Steerage shows people leaving\, not coming to\, the United Stat es\, by the mid-twentieth century The Steerage came to be viewed a s the quintessential image of immigrants en route to America. The image res onates on a personal level\, especially with Jewish Americans\, who often m istake one of the figures in the foreground for a Jewish man mid-prayer (at a quick glance\, the striped cloth looks like a tallit\, or praye r shawl). Perhaps for this reason above all\, The Steerage has bec ome the textbook image for Jewish immigration (it even appears on the cover of The Columbia History of Jews &\; Judaism in America\, publi shed in 2008).

\n

Two related artworks from the Jewish Museum&rsquo\;s coll ection are also included in this exhibition: Arnold Newman&rsquo\;s 1944 do uble portrait of Stieglitz and the artist Georgia O&rsquo\;Keeffe (whom he married in 1924)\, and Vik Muniz's contemporary rendition of The Steera ge\, which he recreated in chocolate sauce in 2000.
