New York\, NY - \;ACA Galleries is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition\, RAW BEAUTY: Bradley Theodore and Antoine Verglas\, on view June 11 through July 31\, 2015. \; The focus of the ex hibition is a collaborative series between celebrated artist Bradley Theodo re and renowned photographer Antoine Verglas that combines the excitement o f street art with the sensuality of fashion photography. \; The canvass es for the project are internationally acclaimed models painted by Theodore and then captured on camera by Verglas. \; In addition to the collabor ation series the exhibition at ACA Galleries will feature individual painti ngs by Theodore and photographs by Verglas. \;

\n

Fashion mode ls wear beauty everyday\, what better canvas for art in its purest form tha n the human body. \; I teamed up with my friend Antoine Verglas\, whose work I respect greatly\, to combine our worlds and create an exhibit that highlights both my painting and his photography in a way that is unique and provocative.

\n

When Bradley and I decided to work on this project we want ed to bring art to life and then capture that moment in photos. \; This was the perfect way to do that. \; We used fashion models to create a living piece of art that can be captured in that moment with movement chang ing the piece with each pose. \; Bradley&rsquo\;s creations were genius and the models were stunning and a pleasure to work with.

\n

When I was asked to be part of this project I jumped at t he chance.  \;I have worked with Antoine before and I am a great admire r of Bradley's art. \; It was an amazing experience to be able to proje ct Bradley's art\, with my body\, in a variety of emotional poses for Antoi ne photography.

NURTUREart is delighted to announce Deep Time< /em>\, Davide Zucco&rsquo\;s first New York solo exhibition\, opening on th e occasion of Bushwick Open Studios. In Zucco&rsquo\;s most recent body of work\, metal surfaces transition from tarnished to polished\, flowing over structurally rigorous\, symbolic drawing and composition. Sweeping gestural inserts\, striated by finely detailed plumes\, are inspired by the kaleido scopic patterns found in petrified wood.

\n

Where lush\, prehistoric f orests used to be\, thickets of splintered matter reveal a psychedelically colorful core. Inside\, millions of years accumulate in dense\, layered abs traction. Roughly treated surfaces suggest aggressiveness and violence\, co ntrasting with the subtle lines and delicate structures defining Zucco&rsqu o\;s unique vocabulary of archetypical shapes and symbols.

\n

Mining collective subconscious cosmologies\, Zucco&rsquo\;s use of indust rial materials connect the impossibly remote moods of crystallized prehisto ric time to the historically tangible decay of urban ruins. His works foreg round autonomous\, never ending processes of creative destruction\, energy flows permeating life in a timeless continuity\, transcending the historica l forms of human expression\; from the petrified forest to the Acropolis.\n

The gallery is pleased to present the New York solo debut of Chicago-based artist Elijah Burgher. The exhibitionentitled Bachelors feat ures a series of seven colored pencil portraits\, several large-scale paint ings on dropcloths\, and a group of unique pressure prints. An essay entitl ed Gay Death Cult by Allan Doyle will accompanythe exhibition.

\n

Cont inuing his exploration of the intersections between desire\, fantasy\, and daily life\, the artist employs ideas from magick and the occult to address sexuality\, sub-cultural formation\, and the history of abstraction. A cen tral idea in Burgher's work is that of a "sigil" &ndash\; an emblem to whic h magical power is imputed. By recombining the letters of a written wish in to a new symbol\, Burgher&rsquo\;s pictures\, or sigils\, literally encode desire while embodying it abstractly through shape\, color\, and compositio n. The resulting abstract forms combine solar\, anal\, mechanical and sexua l elements in constellations or diagrams that serve as ritual artifacts\, d evotional tools\, and Gnostic riddles.

\n

This most recent series\, re lating to an imaginary cult alternately called Bachelors of the Dawn (BotD) and Children of the Black Sun (CotBS)\, focuses on portraits of the cult m embers and the symbols used by the cult that relate esoterically to their p hilosophy or world-view. The artist states\; "The figure of the bachelor is crucial\, embodying a refusal to marry and repeat the structures of the nu clear family and the patterns of personhood it perpetuates.

\n

As Doyl e observes: Burgher&rsquo\;s nudes exhibit a rigidity that seems equal part s neoclassical statue and rigor mortis. Standing or lying in hermetic space s lit by an even\, sourceless fluorescence\, they do nothing. Their lack of affect heightens their physical presence. With their cool flesh\, stiff co mportment\, and slightly averted gazes\, the Bachelors appear as purely ext ernal beings\, devoid of interiority. They withhold nothing. Made available to our gaze\, they signal an awareness of the viewer&rsquo\;s presence wit hout capitulating their self-possession. What are we to make of them? Like the sigils that surround them\, the Bachelors frustrate instincts. Despite their display of skin\, they resist appropriation for erotic fantasy.

\n

Elijah Burgher (b. 1978\, Kingston\, NY) lives and works in Chicago\, IL . He received a MFA from the School of the Art Institute\, Chicago and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville\, NY. He was recently a resident at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Fire Island Arti st Residency. The artist was featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial (selecte d by Anthony Elms)\, the 2014 Gwangju Biennial (as part of AA Bronson's "Ho use of Shame")\, The Nothing That Is at the Contemporary Art Museum of Rale igh\, North Carolina\, and The Temptation of AA Bronson at the Witte de Wit h Center for Contemporary Art\, Rotterdam\, among others. His work has been discussed in the New York Times\, Art in America\, ArtReview\, Artforum.co m and was included in VITAMIN D2\, the hardcover survey of contemporary dra wing. The artist is also represented by Western Exhibitions\, Chicago\, IL.

Sargent&rsquo\;s Daughters is pleased to present America&rsquo\;s Most Wanted\, 1998-1999\, a \;historical series \;of silkscreen on canvas works \;by Deborah Kass.  \;This will be the first time the work will be \;ex hibited \;in its entirety and in New York.
 \;
In 1998 Deborah Kass asked young and promising museum curators to take part in her current project: America&rsquo\;s Most Wanted. Based on Andy Warho l&rsquo\;s 1964 World&rsquo\;s Fair public commission for the New York Stat e Pavilion: The 13 Most Wanted Men\, Kass&rsquo\; series substitutes curato rs for criminals.  \;Warhol&rsquo\;s original mural was deemed inapprop riate by then-Governor Nelson Rockefeller and painted over with silver pain t. In 1967 Warhol used some of the same screens to make his series Most Wan ted Men\, which was then shown at Galerie Sonnabend in Paris 1967.  \;T he Queens Museum then showed the work in April 2014\, only 200 yards from t he original site of the mural.
 \;
Deborah Kass&rsquo\; ren owned Warhol Project\, 1992-2000\, referenced Warhol\, and in the Ameri ca's Most Wanted she approaches Warhol&rsquo\;s original work with her usual humor and verve.  \;While Warhol&rsquo\;s Most Wanted h int at a covert sexuality inherent in the &ldquo\;bad boy&rdquo\; persona\, Kass&rsquo\; are direct in their reference of the most wanted people being those  \;with whom she\, along with every artist\, wanted to forge a w orking relationship.  \;Museum curators stand alone and untouchable in the artist&rsquo\;s view\, separated from the commercial dealing of galleri es and auctions by an invisible\, but very present\, line.  \;As is usu al in her work\, Kass steps beyond the line. Just as she appropriated Elvis \, Jackie and Marilyn and substituted her own "outsider" icons\, she turns her subjects into a symbol of insider aspiration and admiration.
&nbs p\;
In Kass&rsquo\; America's Most Wanted each of her subjec ts holds a plaque resembling a police placard in a mug shot.  \;Kass&rs quo\; use of an alphabetical/numerical code references the subjects&rsquo\; place of employment at the time as well as the start date at that museum.  \;Included in the series are recognizable figures: Thelma Golden\, Pau l Schimmel\, Kellie Jones\, Robert Storr\, Donna De Salvo and Terrie Sultan among others.  \;Kass&rsquo\; feminist reinterpretation of Warhol&rsqu o\;s work can be seen as a fond homage to an artist who counted himself an outsider\, but ultimately became an institution.  \;Kass&rsquo\; direct referencing of social and political frameworks elevate her subjects to ico ns\, even as she places them in a miscreant&rsquo\;s mug shot.  \;They remain solidly the art world's Most Wanted\, and have lasted the test of ti me since their start in 1998.  \;Nearly twenty years later\, the subjec ts continue to be powerful figures and Kass&rsquo\; early choice to represe nt them has become a prescient capturing of a collection of in-demand figur es.  \;On exhibit for the first time in New York City\, with Kass as no w a major art world figure exhibiting at a young aspirational gallery\, the pieces have returned full circle to their original political gesture.
 \;
Deborah Kass received her BFA in Painting at Carnegie Mello n University and studied at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. & nbsp\;Her work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art\, The Whit ney Museum of American Art\, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum\, The Jewish Museum\, The Museum of Fine Art\, Boston\, the Harvard Art Museums/ Fogg Mu seum\, The New Orleans Museum of Art\, the Smithsonian National Portrait Ga llery\, and the Perez Museum of Art\, Miami as well as numerous public and private collections.  \; \;
 \;
Recent group shows include &ldquo\;Eye Pop: The Celebrity Gaze&rdquo\; at the Smithsonian Nati onal Portrait Gallery\, &ldquo\;Come Together Sandy\,&rdquo\; Industry City \, Brooklyn\, 2013\, &ldquo\;I\, You\, We&rdquo\; at the Whitney Museum of American art\, 2013\, and &ldquo\;Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists\, Fifty Y ears&rdquo\; at the Metropolitan Museum of Art\, 2012.  \;Recent solo e xhibitions include &ldquo\;feel good paintings for feel bad times\,&rdquo\; 2007 &ldquo\;MORE feel good paintings for feel bad times&rdquo\; 2010 and &ldquo\;My Elvis+&rdquo\; at Paul Kasmin Gallery. In 2012\, The Andy Warhol Museum presented &ldquo\;Deborah Kass: Before and Happily Ever After\, a M id-Career Retrospective&rdquo\; with a catalogue published by Rizzoli. &nbs p\;Her forthcoming exhibition "Black and Blue" will open December 2015 at P aul Kasmin Gallery.
 \;

For the last in a series of ev ents organized in tandem with the exhibition Hito Steyerl\, invite d artist Kari Altmann will be in conversation with writer Ruth Saxelby abou t aspects of her work\, and the systemics of the culture industry.
Altmann's practice takes as its ground the contemporary omnipresence of networks for instantly creating and mutating culture. Her work is heavily immersed in an understanding of aggregation\, encryption\, representation a nd scene-formation\, and the new cultural formats generated by and in respo nse to these processes. She has been identified with labels like "hypergenr e\," "ambiguationist\," "post-internet\," "post-western\," "meta\," and "ci rculationist\," while treating the creation of new tags and lexicons as a s ite of production itself. Her project R-U-In?S began life as one o f these lexicons\, assuming a dystopian\, accelerationist attitude in creat ing black market culture out of the over-availability of hypercapitalism\, algorithmic organization\, and art tropes. The conversation with Saxelby wi ll take in Altmann's creation of genres\, lexicons\, trends\, and cultures and touch also on her curating of the work of her peers\, and her role as m oderator of several gender-focused discussion groups.

Altmann's work also extends beyond the fine art world\, including roles as a musicia n\, DJ\, director\, and ghost producer\, and collaborations with the likes of Kingdom/Fade to Mind\, DJ GC\, Fatima Al Qadiri\, Maluca Mala\, and Mixp ak. Her own work has been featured in publications including The FADER< /em>\, DIS\, and Art in America\, and she has completed p rojects for The New Museum\, Art Dubai\, The Goethe Institute\, and many ot hers. Altmann's first major solo exhibition\, Xomia\, occurred thi s year at Ellis King Gallery. Another solo project\, Hitashya\, wi ll feature in the Biennial of the Americas at the Museum of Contemporary Ar t Denver in July.

Ruth Saxelby is the managing editor at Th e FADER in New York. She has previously written for The Guardian\, Dazed &\; Confused\, and Dummy\, amongst other U K publications. She writes about new genres of audio and visual culture\, w ith an emphasis on electronic music and feminist concerns in the music indu stry. She has interviewed and written about Kari Altmann several times in r ecent years\, including "The Visual Artist at the Center of the Post Intern et Explosion\," "Dallas to Dammam Direct: Kari Altmann on Gulf Futurism's U .S. Outpost\," and "We Talk in Pictures Now\, But What Does It Mean?"

Artists Space Books &\; Tal ks hosts a conversation between artist collective Lou Cantor\, art historia n David Joselit\, and philosopher Reza Negarestani\, moderated by artist Ab raham Adams. The event marks the release of the publication Turning Inw ard (Sternberg Press\, 2015)\, a collection of texts and essays edited by Lou Cantor and Clemens Jahn\, to which Joselit and Negarestani contribu ted. Departing from metaphors of center and periphery that organized arts d iscourse in the twentieth century\, Turning Inward addresses the s patial logic of globalization and its attendant breakdown of distinctions a mong modes of discourse from the visual arts to urbanism\, politics\, educa tion\, and philosophy. A group of works curated by Adams will be presented during the release\, responding to themes raised by Joselit and Negarestani in the book.

This visual counterpart to the discussion&mdash\;i ncluding works by John Miller\, Mary Walling Blackburn\, Lou Cantor\, Rafae l Kelman\, Starship magazine\, Harm van den Dorpel\, Josh Tonsfeld t\, Andrew Ross\, and Time Farm&mdash\;will address problems of excess that have long characterized epistemology\, since information surpassed individ uals&rsquo\; ability to assimilate it. The contemporary explosion of organi zed access to excess drives what Joselit observes in After Art to be a not-yet-fully-realized departure from efforts of avant-garde formal in novation toward a kind of &ldquo\;cultural diplomacy.&rdquo\; This ethics o f circulation and exchange in place of simple escalation is resonant with t he project of philosophy as described by Negarestani: an &ldquo\;enabling a lienation\,&rdquo\; that forces us from &ldquo\;home&rdquo\; ideas of goodn ess and truth as ideal objects toward &ldquo\;piecemeal&rdquo\; projects of &ldquo\;navigation.&rdquo\; The works presented propose a use of craft sub ordinated to epistemic concatenation\; like geometric coordinates\, what th ey create is not a new object but a virtual vector in the movement of conce pts.

Creating images\, which extend into the space around t hem and meet us in our realm of the three-dimensional\, JD Miller uses a sc ulptor&rsquo\;s application of oil paint to challenge the conventional stra tegies of his chosen medium. Miller&rsquo\;s paintings engage the viewer wi th dynamic contours\, light play\, and visibility\, and reveal at every vie wing angle a different insight into their conglomerate layers of positive e nergy.

\n

&ldquo\;I call myself a Reflectionist artist because I belie ve that the universe mirrors each of us in a unique way. My goal as an arti st is to interpret that phenomenon\, and my art is a multidimensional refle ction of life and the way I perceive the world.&rdquo\; &ndash\; JD Miller< /p>\n

Breaking the Color Barrier features JD Miller&rsquo\;s visually arr esting abstract paintings\, which combine his three-dimensional oil paintin g techniques with a precise and delightful command of color. With images th at extend off the canvas and into the viewer&rsquo\;s space\, and colors th at have been personally mixed by Miller to capture light and appeal to our visual senses\, his paintings undoubtedly demand attention. Miller&rsquo\;s creations continue to be unique\, tactile worlds of color and shape that a llow the viewer to penetrate into the depth of the universe through their a rtistic representations.

\n

Throughout the creation process\, JD Mille r utilizes a multifaceted artistic language\, which brings together the inf luences of music\, sculpture\, and chromatic expression to communicate and connect with the viewer. A traveler at heart\, Miller draws constantly on s cenic impressions and the influence of discovery. He is represented in nume rous galleries and museums throughout the United States and involves himsel f with educational and charitable organizations. Just as venturing into Abs traction marked a remarkably successful new trajectory in Miller&rsquo\;s c areer\, Breaking the Color Barrier represents an upward career projection f or the already well-established artist into an entirely new art market. Thi s is the first time that JD Miller will be represented in the heart of New York City &ndash\; in the cultural mecca that is the world-renowned art sce ne of the Chelsea neighborhood. Breaking the Color Barrier is set to thrill Miller&rsquo\;s audience with new material and give viewers a gli mpse into his ever-changing creative vision.
