At the heart of The Jewish Museum is its permanent exhibitio n\, Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey\, representing one of the world's great opportunities to explore Jewish cultu re and history through art. This vibrant two-floor exhibition features 800 works from the Museum's remarkably diverse collection of art\, archaeology\ , ceremonial objects\, video\, photographs\, interactive media and televisi on excerpts. It examines the Jewish experience as it has evolved from antiq uity to the present\, over 4\,000 years\, and asks two vital questions: How has Judaism been able to thrive for thousands of years across the globe\, often in difficult and even tragic circumstances? What constitutes the esse nce of Jewish identity?

The exhibition traces the dynamic inter action among three catalysts that have shaped the Jewish experience: the co nstant questioning and reinterpretation of Jewish traditions\, the interact ion of Jews and Judaism with other cultures\, and the impact of historical events that have transformed Jewish life. Culture and Continuity: The Je wish Journey proposes that Jews have been able to sustain their identit y\, despite wide dispersion and sometimes tragic circumstances\, by evolvin g a culture that can adapt to life in many countries and under various cond itions. Survival as a people has depended upon both the continuity of Jewis h ideas and values and the flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances.< br />
We invite you to visit the Museum and see Culture and Continu ity: The Jewish Journey in person. Visitors to the Museum can enjoy ran dom access audio guide tours of the exhibition\, including a "Director's Hi ghlights" audio guide featuring Joan Rosenbaum\, Helen Goldsmith Menschel D irector of The Jewish Museum\, and a special audio guide for children and f amilies. Audio guides are free of charge with Museum admission and were mad e possible by Bloomberg.

The Housatonic Museum of Art is pleased to announce Pola ridad Complementaria: Recent Works from Cuba\, an exhibition that introduces North America to the new generation of influential artists from Cuba.  Polaridad Complementaria is on view in the Bu rt Chernow Galleries at the Housatonic Museum of Art from August 15 through October 20\, 2011

Develope d by the Centro de Arte Contemporaneo Wifredo Lam\, Havana\, Polaridad Complementaria offers audiences the opportunity to become acquainted w ith the island’s current and upcoming artistic talent. More than 40 works o f painting\, drawing\, sculpture\, photography\, video and installation art provide a sense of the serious aesthetic and conceptual concerns that char acterizes Cuban art today. The 24 artists presented here are mainly young a rtists who have attained international recognition. The majority of these a rtists have taken part in fairs and biennials abroad and all have exhibited in Europe\, Latin America and were featured in various editions of the Hav ana Biennial. Several have exhibited in the United States\, including René Peña\, Abel Barroso\, Aimeé García\, Yoan Capote\, Eduardo Ponjuán\, Lázaro Saavedra\, Sandra Ramos and Roberto Fabelo.
 
Often compared t o American photographer Robert Mapplethorpe\, artist René Peña explores the relationship between individuals within society and the struggle for their own identity. Abel Barroso carves three-dimensional pieces using wood and various printing methods to create a conversation about technology and the third-world. From Zulueta\, Cuba\, Duvier del Dago takes things one step fu rther\, combining drawing with handmade 3D design examining the unattainabl e\, whether it be the material or the ideal. From simplistic to intricately fabricated\, these artists create a narrative of Cuba today.
 
Diverse in both medium and themes\, the artists featured in Polaridad Complementaria understand the power of their art to address a wide ran ge of social issues. The exhibition highlights works that connect the local context with global concerns and universal human issues. After many years\ , Polaridad Complementaria opens a pathway for dialogue and cultur al exchange between Cuba and the United States\, two countries with histori c ties and common cultural processes\, despite troubled relations.
Margarita Sánchez Prieto is curator\, researcher and art critic at Centro de Arte Contemporaneo Wifredo Lam in Havana and recipi ent of the National Prize of Curatorship at the 2000 Havana Biennial. She h as curated various exhibitions and lectured extensively on Cuban and Latin American art throughout South America\, Europe and Canada. Her work has bee n published in various art magazines and she is the author of the anthology An Outlook of Latin American Art in the Decade of 1980

Painting for the garden at The James Hotel\, 27 Grand Street \, NYC. Opening May 1\, 2013.

Ghost acreage is extraterritorial land annexed for production. Historically\, American land was used to produ ce cotton for space-constrained Europe\; today variations of this practice can be found everywhere in industrial production from food to electronics.< br />
The designs for the Urban Garden pillar at The James Hotel were generated by sampling from visual and historical markers on 6th Avenue imme diately adjacent to the pillar. Examples include the multicolored z-shaped crosswalk pavers\, the Avenue of the Americas lamppost medallions and the s tatue of Juan Pablo Durate who helped found the Dominican Republic and esta blish its independence from Hati.

During the colonial period\, r esidents of Lower Manhattan and Carribean countries shared the experience o f being subjects and revolutionaries. While mostly invisible today\, eviden ce of these histories can be found just outside the Urban Garden.

The Queens Museum will always be inextricably linked to the 1939 and 1964 World&rsquo\;s Fairs\, and with a collection of more than 10\ ,000 objects pertaining to the two expositions\, the Museum is a key resour ce to both scholars and fans. In an effort to provide visitors with a great er understanding of the scope of the Museum&rsquo\;s enormous holdings of 1 939 and 1964 World&rsquo\;s Fair artifacts and memorabilia\, the newly inst alled World&rsquo\;s Fair Visible Storage and Gallery on the second floor d isplays more than 900 three-dimensional pieces arranged by the date of each World&rsquo\;s Fair\, and within these categories\, arranged by donor. The dense installation provides an opportunity to study a large number of rela ted works of World&rsquo\;s Fair objects up close\, and to compare and cont rast a wide range of items from 1939 and 1964. The Visible Storage provides unprecedented access to students\, scholars\, and the general public to ex plore the collection that was formerly hidden in the Museum&rsquo\;s art va ult\, off-limits to the public. Many of these objects have never been displ ayed in the history of the Queens Museum.

\n

Visible Storage addresses the challenge of organizing a public exhibition space while fulfilling the traditional purpose of safely displaying and storing an important cross-se ction of the Museum&rsquo\;s collections in a climate-controlled and easily accessible environment. Light sensitive objects\, such as documents\, phot ographs and textiles\, remain stored in dedicated low-light facilities.

\n

These large glass cases now house more than 90% of the three-dimension al objects in the Museum&rsquo\;s World&rsquo\;s Fair collection. New acqui sitions and private collections that\, in most cases\, have been donated to the Museum\, will be added to the Visible Storage allowing visitors to gai n new insight into the history and evolution of the World&rsquo\;s Fairs th rough a visual understanding\, and a palpable sense of place by exploring t hese artifacts and memorabilia. Furthermore\, with all the objects donated by a particular collector displayed as a group\, the collections within the collection become evident.

\n

As milestone anniversaries of both the 1939 and 1964 World&rsquo\;s Fairs near\, Visible Storage pays homage to mo mentous events in the history of Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the Queen s Museum. These objects simultaneously evoke the past and a yearning for to morrow. Linking thematically with the beloved Panorama of the City of New Y ork and its slightly more modest relative\, the Relief Map of the New York City Water Supply System\, the Visible Storage completes the triumvirate at the heart of the NYC Building&rsquo\;s rich history as a World&rsquo\;s Fa ir pavilion. The World&rsquo\;s Fair collection is ever-growing\, those int erested in donating artifacts can email worldsfair@queensmuseum.org or call 718.592.9700 x122.

\n

Also on view within the World&rsquo\;s Fair Gal lery is ChronoLeap: The Great World&rsquo\;s Fair Adventure\, a vi rtual experience and game that transports visitors back in time to the 1964 World&rsquo\;s Fair. The World&rsquo\;s Fair offered a glimpse of the futu re\, with different pavilions featuring exhibitions showcasing the latest i nnovations in science and technology as an avenue for better lifestyles. ChronoLeap allows for a virtual experience of the Fair\, complete wi th pavilion tours and a conversation with Fair President Robert Moses. ChronoLeap is organized by Dr. Lori C. Walters\, a Research Assistant Professor with the Institute for Simulation and Training and Department of History at the University of Central Florida. Funded by both the National E ndowment for the Humanities and the National Science Foundation\, the proje ct explores the use of 3D virtual environments as an educational tool to ex pand the understanding of Science\, Technology\, Engineering and Mathematic s (STEM) education.

In a major collaboration with the Hall Art Foundation\, the keystone of which is a large and long-term exhibition of sculpture and pain tings by Anselm Kiefer\, MASS MoCA opens a 10\,000 square-foot building at MASS MoCA specially re-purposed by the Hall Art Foundation and devoted to t he art of Anselm Kiefer.

\n

The exhibition includes É\;troit s sont les Vaisseaux (Narrow are the Vessels) (2002)\, an 82-foot long \, undulating wave-like sculpture made of cast concrete\, exposed rebar\, a nd lead\; The Women of the Revolution (Les Femmes de la Revolution) (1992)\, comprised of more than twenty lead beds with photographs and wal l text\; Velimir Chlebnikov (2004)\, a steel pavilion containing 30 paintings dealing with nautical warfare and inspired by the quixotic the ories of the Russian mathematical experimentalist Velimir Chlebnikov\; and a new\, large-format commission created by the artist specifically for the installation at MASS MoCA.

\n

Anselm Kiefer\, who first visited MASS M oCA in 1990 when it was still in the early planning stages\, ranks among th e best-known and most important of post-World War II German artists living and working today. Born in 1945 in southern Germany during the final days o f the collapse of the Third Reich\, Kiefer experienced divided postwar Germ any firsthand. Across his body of work\, Kiefer argues with history\, addre ssing controversial and even taboo issues from recent history with bold dir ectness and lyricism. Kiefer often turns to literature and history as prime source material for his work\, as he did\, for example\, in the suite of p aintings that comprise Velimir Chlebnikov (2004).

\n

The arti st often builds his imagery on top of photographs\, layering his massive ca nvases with dirt\, lead\, straw\, and other materials that generate a &ldqu o\;ground&rdquo\; that reads literally of the earth itself. Within these th ick\, impastoed surfaces Kiefer embeds textual or symbolic references to hi storic figures or places: these become encoded signals through which Kiefer invokes and processes history.

\n

A law student\, Kiefer switched his studies to art in 1965 and held his first solo exhibit in 1969. During the early 1970s he studied with conceptual artist Joseph Beuys\, whose interes t in using an array of cultural myths\, metaphors\, and personal symbolic v ocabulary as a means to engage and understand history inspired Kiefer. The artist has described his own art-making process as stimulated by Beuys&rsqu o\; philosophies: &ldquo\;Painting\, for me\, is not just about creating an illusion. I don&rsquo\;t paint to present an image of something. I paint o nly when I have received an apparition\, a shock\, when I want to transform something. Something that possesses me\, and from which I have to deliver myself. Something I need to transform\, to metabolize\, and which gives me a reason to paint.&rdquo\; Like Beuys\, whose works were often constructed of fragile\, organic materials (including blood\, fat\, and honey)\, Kiefer &rsquo\;s works often incorporate unusual\, fugitive materials such as ash\ , clay\,and dried plant materials. With their rough-hewn textures and expan sive narrative formats that often evoke charred landscape and historical\, sometimes apocalyptic settings\, Kiefer&rsquo\;s work did not conform to th e pared-down Minimalist or Conceptualist movements that were becoming mains tream at the time he was a student. Instead he created massive\, dark paint ings\, books constructed of large sheets of lead\, and figurative works tha t explored German folklore and were inspired by Caspar David Friedrich\, am ong others.

\n

Kiefer&rsquo\;s works are often realized in large forma ts\, which in turn demand special exhibition spaces. MASS MoCA is adept at collaborating with artists\, collectors\, foundations\, and cultural instit utions to bring important bodies of art to the public\, best exemplified by its 2008 partnership with Yale University Art Gallery\, the Williams Colle ge Museum of Art\, and the studio of Sol LeWitt\, which realized a 25-year exhibition devoted to LeWitt&rsquo\;s monumental wall drawings\, a landmark quasi-permanent installation that was named "#1 Museum Exhibition of the Y ear" by Time magazine. The museum is proud to host an array of distinct cur atorial points of view\, within its renovated 19th singular factory campus.

\n

The Hall Art Foundation makes available works of postwar and conte mporary art from its collection and from the collection of Andrew and Chris tine Hall for the enjoyment and education of the public. In addition to the dedicated gallery space at MASS MoCA\, the Hall Art Foundation operates a contemporary art space in Reading\, Vermont.

all utopias fell is a project in three interrelated parts: The Shining\, The Library of the Sun\, and Co dex Solis.

\n

The Shining is a 1970s-era &lsquo\;satelli te&rsquo\; that has crash-landed at MASS MoCA. This beautifully reflective\ , repurposed Airstream trailer &ndash\; with large parachutes and active so lar panels &ndash\; is inspired by an earlier era of pulp aeronauts like Bu ck Rogers\, Tom Swift and Tom Corbett: Space Cadet\, as well as the works o f Giotto\, Jules Verne\, NASA\, and Chris Marker&rsquo\;s 1962 film La Jeté\;e. Visitors can climb a staircase in the Boiler Plant and enter into the craft where they will encounter The Library of the Sun. Hybridizing a domestic space\, a laboratory and a library\, it has the feel of a hermitage\, where the occupant will &lsquo\;be right back&rsquo\ ;\, only it is 30 years later. Videos relating to the sun and its mythology flicker to life on the cockpit&rsquo\;s instrumentation panels. In additio n to these elements\, visitors will be stunned by a stained glass window in what was once the windshield of the vehicle. Once inside the craft\, visit ors will also be able to view Codex Solis\, a massi ve field of photovoltaic (PVs) or solar panels. At 50kw\, the field wil l generate 7% of the power consumed by MASS MoCA. In addition to this 230-f oot long grid\, mirrors are interspersed in the middle of the field\, and s uggest an absent text. The arrangement of mirrors and solar panels is based on a specific quote by an unnamed author\, and will not be revealed by the artist\; instead the public will be encouraged to spend time with the piec e\, watch the reflected sky\, and solve the riddle as birds and planes\, in verted\, fly by.

Sol L eWitt (American\, 1928&ndash\;2007) executed drawings by hand throughout hi s life\; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed fo r limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architec tural settings. Initially executed by drafters\, these works in their finis hed state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art\, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art\, as opposed to the work'\;s material existence. "\;For each work of art that becomes physical\,"\; he wrote\, "\;there are man y variations that do not."\;

\n\n

So l LeWitt'\;s 1982 \;Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (in cluding right triangle\, cross\, X\, diamond) with three-inch parallel band s of lines in two directions \;was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks.

Austrian immigrants Dr. Egon N eustadt and his wife Hildegard were among the earliest collectors of works by famed American artist Louis C. Tiffany (1848-1933) and they played a cri tical role in reviving interest in Tiffany&rsquo\;s lamps in the mid-twenti eth century. In 1935\, newly married and living in Flushing\, Queens\, the Neustadts purchased their first Tiffany lamp &ndash\; a small Daffodil\, fo r the incredible price of $12.50 &ndash\; from a secondhand shop in Greenwi ch Village. Tiffany&rsquo\;s work was decidedly unfashionable at this time\ ; indeed\, Louis C. Tiffany died in 1933 and his Tiffany Studios would decl are bankruptcy in 1937. But the Neustadts\, undeterred by the current disin terest in Tiffany lamps\, were struck by the beauty of the colorful glass a nd enchanted that the shade had been made by an artist from the beloved cou ntry they now called home. Over the course of the next fifty years\, their collection grew to include more than 200 lamps of all shapes\, sizes\, and designs. It remains today the largest and most comprehensive lamp collectio n ever assembled.

\n

A Passion for T iffany Lamps \;highlights the extraordinary scope of the Neustadts &rsquo\; collection. Examples of Tiffany&rsquo\;s most iconic lamps &ndash\ ; the \;Wisteria \;and \;Dragonfly \;&nda sh\; will be on view\, along with unusual lamps produced in limited number\ , such as the \;Pond Lily \;globe and \;Peacock \;hanging shade.

\n

In 1995\, The Neustadt partnered with the Queens Museum to share its collection with the New York metropolitan area through a permanent Tiffany gallery and educati onal programming. This partnership has special significance because Tiffany &rsquo\;s glass furnace\, bronze foundry\, and workshops were located in Co rona\, Queens\, less than two miles from the Museum.

He firmly believed that art was an indispensable tool for understanding societies\, and thus made culture c entral to the new multidisciplinary organization that would encompass all a spects and all parts of East\, South\, and Southeast Asia and the Himalayas . From 1963 to 1978\, he and his wife\, Blanchette Hooker Rockefeller (1909 &ndash\;1992)\, worked with art historian Sherman E. Lee (1918&ndash\;2008) as an advisor to build the Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection \, which was later bequeathed to Asia Society. The group of spectacular his torical objects they assembled&mdash\;including sculpture\, painting\, and decorative arts&mdash\;became the core of the Asia Society Museum Collectio n and is now world renowned. The Collection is distinguished by the high pr oportion of acclaimed masterpieces\, representing the artistic pinnacles of the cultures that produced them\, to which additional high-quality gifts a nd acquisitions have been added since the original bequest to Asia Society.

\n\n

The selections in the exhibition s howcase the breadth and depth of creative expression across Asia created by artists and artisans with extraordinary skill. To this day the objects rem ain an important means for sharing the talent\, imagination\, and deep hist ory of the peoples of Asia with audiences all over the world. Masterpie ces from the Asia Society Museum Collection explores the specialized a rtistry of Asian ceramics\, metalwork\, and stone carving\, and the develop ment of Hinduism and Buddhism in Asia through some of the most refined and accomplished examples of the region&rsquo\;s great artistic traditions.

\n

In gallery space devoted to the permanent collection\ , the Guggenheim is showcasing its rich holdings of the work of Constantin Bra ncusi (1876&ndash\;1957). In the early decades of the twentieth century \, Brancusi produced an innovative body of work that altered the trajectory of modern sculpture. During this period\, Brancusi lived and worked in Par is\, then a thriving artistic center where many modernist tenets were being developed and debated. He became an integral part of these conversations b oth through his relationships with other artists\, such as Marcel Duchamp\, Fernand Lé\;ger\, Amedeo Modigliani\, and Henri Rousseau\, and throu gh his own pioneering work. His aspiration to express the essence of his su bjects through simplified forms and his engagement with non&ndash\;Western European artistic traditions led to new stylistic approaches. In addition\, his mode of presentation\, which equally emphasized sculpture and base and in which works were shown in direct relation to one another\, instead of a s independent entities\, introduced new ways of thinking about the nature o f the art object.

\n\n

The Solomon R. Gu ggenheim Museum began collecting Brancusi&rsquo\;s work in-depth in the mid -1950s under the leadership of its second director\, James Johnson Sweeney. When Sweeney began his tenure at the museum\, the collection was focused o n nonobjective painting. Sweeney significantly expanded the scope of the in stitution&rsquo\;s holdings\, bringing in other styles and mediums\, partic ularly sculpture. The Guggenheim&rsquo\;s commitment to Brancusi during the se years extended beyond its collecting priorities\, and in 1955 the museum held the first major exhibition of the artist&rsquo\;s work.

Gateway to Himalayan Art introduces visitors to the main forms\, concepts\, and meanings of Himala yan art represented in our collection. A large multimedia map orients the v isitors and highlights cultural regions of a diverse Himalayan cultural sph ere that includes parts of present day India\, China\, Nepal\, Bhutan\, and Mongolia. Visitors are invited to explore exemplary objects from the Museu m&rsquo\;s collection\, organized and presented in thematic sections: Figur es and Symbols\, Materials and Techniques\, and Purpose and Function.

\n \n

The exhibition employs a concise and inf ormative approach to convey the principal notions inherent in the rich trad itions of Himalayan art to first-time visitors and specialists alike. In ad dition to sculptures and paintings\, objects such as a stupa\, prayer wheel \, and ritual implements demonstrate that their patrons sought the accumula tion of merit and hoped for wealth\, long life\, and spiritual gains\, all to be fulfilled through the ritual use of these objects and commissioning w orks of art.

\n\n

Among the featured ins tallations are a display that explains the process of Nepalese lost-wax met al casting and a presentation of the stages of Tibetan hanging scroll paint ing (thangka). Visitors will also encounter life-size reproductions of murals from Tibet&rsquo\;s Lukhang Temple\, photographed by Thomas Laird and Clint Clemens.

\n\n

As a whole the exhibition provides visitors with tools for understanding the artistic trad itions presented throughout the museum\, including a Looking Guide\, a take away brochure and an audio guide.

Displacement\, political trans formation\, new nationalisms\, the tension between urban and rural&mdash\;I ndia of the mid-twentieth century does not sound so distant from the world today. It was a time and place of change\, captured expertly and in great d epth by the pioneering photojournalist Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908&ndash\;2 004).

\n\n

In 1947 Cartier-Bresson co-fo unded the internationally renowned cooperative photographic agency Magnum P hotos. Later that same year he undertook his first trip to India as part of a three-year stay in Asia. At the time\, India was undergoing a massive po litical transition\, having gained independence from British colonial rule and been partitioned from Pakistan. In January 1948 Cartier-Bresson travele d to Delhi to meet with one of the key players in that transition\, India&r squo\;s great leader Mahatma Gandhi. It would be one of Gandhi&rsquo\;s fin al meetings before the leader&rsquo\;s assassination at the hands of a Hind u nationalist on January 30.

\n\n

The re sulting photos of Gandhi&rsquo\;s last day of life and the events surroundi ng his funeral\, which helped catapult Cartier-Bresson to international fam e\, are part of a selection of 69 photographs from the photographer&rsquo\; s travels to India shared in the exhibition. They reflect his abiding inter est in the people and sites of India\, including some examples of his &ldqu o\;street photography&rdquo\; style that has influenced generations of phot ographers. Together they illustrate a master photographer&rsquo\;s perspect ive on transformative moments in Indian history.

In 2011\, Maine-based photogr apher Tanja Alexia Hollander set out to differentiate the actual from the v irtual by photographing all 626 of her Facebook friends. Since then\, she h as traveled across the globe\, setting up in-person meetings in her friends &rsquo\; homes to discover the ways in which friendship is defined\, and ho w permission is granted into one&rsquo\;s private &mdash\; yet also very pu blic &mdash\; online life. Through this project\, the artist has been able to take the virtual out of friendship.

\n\n

What began as a personal documentary on friendship and environmental p ortraiture has turned into an exploration of contemporary culture\, relatio nships\, generosity and compassion\, family structure\, community-building\ , storytelling\, meal-sharing\, the economy and class\, the relationship be tween technology and travel in the 21st century\, social networking\, memor y\, and the history of the portrait. To accomplish this\, Hollander follows in the footsteps of the Farm Security Administration photographers\, such as Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange\, who documented the Great Depression an d the Dust Bowl. She is also informed by Robert Frank&rsquo\;s The Ameri cans\, an iconic book of photography from 1958\, which documents postwa r America. Like these historic photographers\, Hollander has set out to see America and the world. She is recording how society uses photography\, the portrait\, and social media to create and define a 21st-century existence.

\n\n

While Hollander has presented segm ents of this working project at galleries and museums throughout the world\ , Are you really my friend? premieres in its entirety at MASS MoCA. Visitors to the museum can expect to find a mix of photographs\, video\, da ta visualization/mining\, travelogue\, and landscape images\, along with an interactive element that asks viewers to define what a real friend means t o them. In the end\, the project\, while rooted in Facebook\, goes beyond t he superficial to explore ideas of interpersonal connections\, travel\, and community in today&rsquo\;s world.

In Cavernous: The Inner L ife of Courage\, Colorado-based artist Wes Sam-Bruce uses the Hoosac T unnel as a metaphor for brave endeavors. Kidspace explores what it takes to be courageous and persevere in the face of mountain-sized obstacles. Galle ry visitors are invited to play in a tunnel-like structure built specifical ly for the museum. A free opening celebration takes place with the artist o n Saturday\, June 17\, from 11am to 1pm.

\n\n

Sam-Bruce\, renowned for producing interactive artworks\, found the North Adams icon to be a fascinating historical site to explore. According to the artist\, &ldquo\;the Hoosac Tunnel construction can be viewed as a r epresentation of an act of courageousness: a journey through the unknown &m dash\; dark\, cavernous\, difficult\, loss\, successful\, light-giving\, co nnecting\, a triumph\, tenacity\, and grit.&rdquo\; Being central to the No rth Adams community\, he views the tunnel as a symbol of the legacy of a gr oup of people who then and now have acted courageously through the many cha pters of the city&rsquo\;s history. Sam-Bruce will spend a month in residen cy at the museum conducting local history research and building an artwork that will feature a cavernous mountain\, tunnels\, and thresholds. Visitors can make their way through the installation\, an uncharted exhalation comp osed of repurposed wood\, text\, and drawings\, finding themselves surround ed by content that delves into the human experience\; they have not only en tered the mountain\, but also\, as Sam-Bruce puts it\, &ldquo\;the space of one&rsquo\;s innermost self &mdash\; the root of courage.&rdquo\;

\n\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Cavernous is the third component o f Kidspace&rsquo\;s \;Art 4 Change\, a four-year project that explores problem-solving through empathy\, optimism\, and courage. The guid ing principle for these exhibition projects is Albert Einstein&rsquo\;s sta tement that &ldquo\;[We] cannot solve our problems with the same thinking w e used when we created them.&rdquo\; In other words\, without empathy\, hop e\, and courage\, societal problems can seem overwhelming. In an era of nar cissism and cynicism\, therefore\, an experience with Sam-Bruce&rsquo\;s wo rk provides the opportunity to strengthen our collective sense of bravery\, tolerance\, and kindness.

\n\n

The free opening celebration takes place on Saturday\, June 17\, from 11am to 1pm. Meet the artist\, make some art\, and enjoy some refreshments. Admission to Kidspace is always free\; the ArtBar is open on weekends and during school breaks.

Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound is a multi-compon ent exhibition featuring interactive installations\, immersive environments \, and performing objects that explore how the ephemeral and abstract natur e of sound is made material. At a time when so much visual information is b eing dispatched\, consumed\, and digested\, the auditory provides a compell ing sensory experience that is capable of reorienting the body to consider spatial and interpersonal relationships anew.

\n\n

Comprised of linked solo and curated projects\, Sonic Arcade explores sound as substance\, framing it as interdependent material t hat is physically crafted and transmitted through electronic circuits and s ignals\, radio waves\, and resonant bodies that create encounters that are not only heard\, but felt. The exhibition features contemporary artists\, d esigners\, and performers who respond to sound&rsquo\;s potential as a mate rial that influences how people experience space\, their environment\, and time\, drawing out the ability of the auditory to provide a fresh perspecti ve on how surroundings\, and the body\, are perceived and engaged.

Comprised of linked solo and curated projects\, Sonic Arcade explores sound as substance\, framing it as interdependent material that is physically crafted and trans mitted through electronic circuits and signals\, radio waves\, and resonant bodies that create encounters that are not only heard\, but felt. The exhi bition features contemporary artists\, designers\, and performers who respo nd to sound&rsquo\;s potential as a material that influences how people exp erience space\, their environment\, and time\, drawing out the ability of t he auditory to provide a fresh perspective on how surroundings\, and the bo dy\, are perceived and engaged.

Audiowear is curated for the Tiffany &\; Co. Foundation Jewelry Gallery by Assistant Curator Barbara Paris Gifford.

Make Noise was founded in 2008 by Tony Rolan do\, a self-taught electronic musical instrument designer. What started as a re-visioning of jettisoned music technology has grown into a crew of folk s working together in Asheville\, North Carolina\, to design and build stra nge yet thoughtful modular synthesizers. Make Noise sees these instruments as a collaboration with musicians who create once-in-a-lifetime performance s that push boundaries and play the notes between the notes to discover the unfound sounds. The instruments are intended to be an experience\, one tha t requires us to change our trajectories and thereby impacts the way we und erstand and imagine sound.

In their performances\, they engage the systems through a series of unique interfac es. They also work with 3D modeling programs to design virtual forms that a re output as images and sculptures with the use of digital fabrication. MSH R&rsquo\;s sculptural\, musical\, and electronic works inform each other de eply\, creating the meta-form that is the duo&rsquo\;s collaborative practi ce.

The East Village of the 19 70s and 1980s continues to thrive in the global public&rsquo\;s imagination . Located in the basement of a Polish Church at 57 St. Marks Place\, Club 5 7 (1978&ndash\;83) began as a no-budget venue for music and film exhibition s\, and quickly took pride of place in a constellation of countercultural v enues in downtown New York fueled by low rents\, the Reagan presidency\, an d the desire to experiment with new modes of art\, performance\, fashion\, music\, and exhibition. A center of creative activity in the East Village\, Club 57 is said to have influenced virtually every club that came in its w ake.

\n\n

Club 57: Film\, Performance\, and Art in the East Villag e\, 1978&ndash\;1983 is the first major exhibition to fully examine th e scene-changing\, interdisciplinary life of this seminal downtown New York alternative space. The exhibition will tap into the legacy of Club 57&rsqu o\;s founding curatorial staff&mdash\;film programmers Susan Hannaford and Tom Scully\, exhibition organizer Keith Haring\, and performance curator An n Magnuson&mdash\;to examine how the convergence of film\, video\, performa nce\, art\, and curatorship in the club environment of New York in the 1970 s and 1980s became a model for a new spirit of interdisciplinary endeavor. Responding to the broad range of programming at Club 57\, the exhibition wi ll present their accomplishments across a range of disciplines&mdash\;from film\, video\, performance\, and theater to photography\, painting\, drawin g\, printmaking\, collage\, zines\, fashion design\, and curating. Building on extensive research and oral history\, the exhibition features many work s that have not been exhibited publicly since the 1980s.

Items: Is Fashion Modern? explores the present\, past&mdash\;a nd sometimes the future&mdash\;of 111 items of clothing and accessories tha t have had a strong impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries&mdas h\;and continue to hold currency today. Among them are pieces as well-known and transformative as the Levi&rsquo\;s 501s\, the Breton shirt\, and the Little Black Dress\, and as ancient and culturally charged as the sari\, th e pearl necklace\, the kippah\, and the keffiyeh. Items will also invite some designers\, engineers\, and manufacturers to respond to some of these indispensable items with pioneering materials\, approaches\, and tec hniques&mdash\;extending this conversation into the near and distant future s\, and connecting the history of these garments with their present recombi nation and use. Driven first and foremost by objects\, not designers\, the exhibition considers the many relationships between fashion and functionali ty\, culture\, aesthetics\, politics\, labor\, identity\, economy\, and tec hnology.

Louise Bourgeo is: An Unfolding Portrait explores the prints\, books\, and creative p rocess of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911&ndash\;2010). Bour geois&rsquo\;s printed oeuvre\, a little-known aspect of her work\, is vast in scope and comprises some 1\,200 printed compositions\, created primaril y in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her care er\, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this ma terial\, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum&rsquo\; s Marron Atrium.

\n\n

The artist&rsquo\; s creative process is the organizing principle behind the exhibition. Over the course of her career\, Bourgeois constantly revisited the themes of her art\, all of which emerged from emotions she struggled with for a lifetime . Also\, she said there was no &ldquo\;rivalry&rdquo\; between the mediums in which she worked\, noting that &ldquo\;they say the same thing in differ ent ways.&rdquo\; Here\, her prints and illustrated books will be seen in t he context of related sculptures\, drawings\, and paintings\, and within th ematic groupings that explore motifs of architecture\, the body\, and natur e\, as well as investigations of abstraction and works made from old garmen ts and household fabrics. In addition\, the evolving states and variants of her prints will be emphasized in order to reveal Bourgeois&rsquo\;s creati ve thinking as it unfolded.

\n\n

Bringin g together some 220 works\, the exhibition celebrates the Museum&rsquo\;s a rchive of Bourgeois prints as well as the completion of the online catalogu e raisonné\;\, Louise Bourgeois: The Complete Prints &\; Books \, available now in process at moma.org/bourgeoisprints\, and ultimately documentin g over 4\,600 printed sheets in all.

MoMA PS1 presents the first comprehensive retrospective of Carolee Schn eemann\, spanning the artist&rsquo\;s prolific six-decade career. As one of the most influential artists of the second part of the 20th century\, Schn eemann&rsquo\;s pioneering investigations into subjectivity\, the social co nstruction of the female body\, and the cultural biases of art history have had significant influence on subsequent generations of artists. Carole e Schneemann: Kinetic Painting begins with rarely seen examples of the artist&rsquo\;s early paintings of the 1950s and their evolution into asse mblages made in the 1960s\, which integrated objects\, mechanical elements\ , and modes of deconstruction. In the late 1960s Schneemann began positioni ng her own body within her work\, performing the roles of &ldquo\;both imag e and image-maker.&rdquo\; As a central protagonist of the New York downtow n avant-garde community\, she explored hybrid artistic forms culminating in experimental theater events. The exhibition considers Schneemann&rsquo\;s oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance\, film\, and installation in the 1970s\, as well as her increasingly spatialized multimedia installat ions from the 1980s\, 1990s\, and 2000s.

MoMA PS1 will pres ent the first solo museum exhibition in New York focused on Glasgow-based a rtist Cathy Wilkes (b. 1966)\, in conjunction with the inaugural Maria Lass nig Prize. Since the start of her career in the 1990s\, Wilkes has created sculptural tableaux that engage with the rituals of life. Regularly employi ng quotidian products and residual materials drawn from her domestic life\, Wilkes&rsquo\;s installations connect the banalities of daily existence to larger archetypes of birth\, marriage\, child-rearing\, and death. This co mbination of the personal and universal parallels a meditation at the heart of her work\, in which Wilkes&rsquo\;s art enacts an exercise in empathy\, exposing deeply felt subjective experiences to reach beyond herself while also insisting upon the fundamentally private nature of artmaking.

\n\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Wilkes is the first artist to receive the M aria Lassnig Prize\, a biennial award established by the Maria Lassnig Foun dation in June 2016 to honor the achievements of mid-career artists. The Ma ria Lassnig Prize was originally envisioned by pioneering Austrian artist M aria Lassnig before her death in 2014 at the age of 94\, at height of her a rtistic powers. Having achieved recognition only later in life\, she hoped to encourage the efforts of fellow career artists not yet familiar to the p ublic. In 2014\, MoMA PS1 presented Maria Lassnig&rsquo\;s first comprehens ive American museum survey to universal acclaim.

Songs of Freedom\, a show of two and three-dimensio nal mixed media artworks\, video\, photography and performance by 10 artist s (nine women and one man&ndash\;a self-proclaimed feminist) opens at the J CC Harlem on Wednesday\, September 13.  \;Art In FLUX curators\, Leanne Stella and Henone Girma\, brought together a group of artists that each us e their own experiences and observations to address notions of femininity a nd female empowerment.

\n\n

The use of repurposed materials\, fabric i n Tomo Mori&rsquo\;s Our Little People and wire hangers in Autumn Kioti&rsquo\;s Red Hen (impossible standard) and the painstaking h andiwork in each speaks to the resilience and resourcefulness women require to navigate the &ldquo\;modern&rdquo\; world.  \;Our Little People represents the interconnected female bonds that protect voiceless and vulnerable children while the Red Hen performance and installatio n piece makes a grim yet humorous reference to the expectations surrounding 21st Century womanhood. Lital Dotan&rsquo\;s Transformation on Rockhil l (video) and Qinza Najm&rsquo\;s Stretched (mixed media) bot h depict in their own way how women stretch themselves beyond external limi tations and preconceived standards to survive and ultimately flourish. &nbs p\;Rejin Leys and Leslie Jimenez paint in a performative piece that can onl y be completed when they unite in the center. The photographic diptych\, Female Empowerment and Blue Building by Ruben Natal-San Mig uel shouts shattering the glass ceiling. Hirut Yosef\, Tara Sabharwal and S ara Jimenez present a combination of figurative and architectural two-dimen sional works that also speak to societal structures surrounding women.  \; \;

\n\n

The artists collectively weave a story about the challe nges women and girls face and the individual and communal strength it takes to stretch beyond clear and abstract restraints. All of the works in S ongs Of Freedom are by women in a world where the constant need to pro tect\, nurture\, succeed\, excel and fight (for gender parity) all co-exist . \;

Since the 1970s\, Judy Chicago has been a pioneer in the development of feminism as an artistic movement and an educational project that endeavors to restore women&rsquo\;s place i n history. Her most influential and widely known work is the sweeping insta llation The Dinner Party (1974&ndash\;79)\, celebrating women&rsqu o\;s achievements in Western culture in the form of a meticulously executed banquet table set for 39 mythical and historical women and honoring 999 ot hers. One of the most important artworks of the twentieth century\, and one of the most popular in our collection\, upon its public debut in 1979 it i mmediately became an icon of feminist art. The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art was established in 2007 with The Dinner Party as its foundation.

\n\n

Roots of &ldquo \;The Dinner Party&rdquo\;: History in the Making is the first museum exhibition to examine Chicago&rsquo\;s evolving plans for The Dinner Pa rty in depth\, detailing its development as a multilayered artwork\, a triumph of community art-making\, and a testament to the power of historic al revisionism. Chicago&rsquo\;s ambitious research project combatted the a bsence of women from mainstream historical narratives and blazed the trail for feminist art historical methodologies in an era of social change.   \;It also validated mediums traditionally considered the domain of women an d domestic labor\, as the artist studied and experimented with China painti ng\, porcelain\, and needlework.

\n\n

Th e exhibition presents rarely seen test plates\, research documents\, epheme ra\, notebooks\, and preparatory drawings from 1971 through 1979 alongside The Dinner Party\, encouraging exploration of its formal\, concept ual\, and material progress.

On October 26\, 2017\, Neue Ga lerie New York will present a major retrospective exhibition devoted to the Wiener Werkstä\;tte (Vienna Workshops)\, an artists&rsquo\; and crafts mens&rsquo\; collective that existed in Vienna from 1903 until 1932. More t han 400 objects have been selected for the presentation\, and the loans are drawn from both public and private collections in the United States and Eu rope\, including significant pieces from Austria. This show surveys the ent irety of the firm&rsquo\;s extensive output in a variety of media\, includi ng ceramics\, drawings\, fashion\, furniture\, glass\, graphic design\, jew elry\, metalwork\, textiles\, and wallpaper. Special highlights of the show will include iconic examples of furniture by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Mo ser\, which will be complemented by rare and often unique works crafted in silver\, gold\, and semiprecious stones that convey the Wiener Werkstä\ ;tte&rsquo\;s luxurious aesthetic.

\n\n

The Neue Galerie has previously staged monographic exhibitions dedicated to the work of Josef Hoffmann (2006)\, Koloman Moser (2013)\, and Dagobert Pe che (2002)\, all major designers who shaped the aesthetic of the Wiener Wer kstä\;tte. This is the first comprehensive American museum presentation on the entire Wiener Werkstä\;tte\, and it will cover all the signific ant artists who were members\, such as Hoffmann\, Moser\, and Peche\, as we ll as less well-known designers such as Gudrun Baudisch\, Carl Otto Czeschk a\, Berthold Lö\;ffler\, Arnold Nechansky\, Michael Powolny\, Felix Rix -Ueno\, Max Snischek\, Vally Wieselthier\, Eduard Josef Wimmer-Wisgrill\, a nd Ugo Zovetti.

\n\n

The show is curated by Dr. Christian Witt-Dö\;rring\, Curator of Decorative Arts for Neue Galerie New York\, who has organized past Neue Galerie exhibitions\, includ ing "\;Dagobert Peche and the Wiener Werkstä\;tte"\; (2002)\, & quot\;Viennese Silver: Modern Design\, 1780- 1918"\; (2003)\, and who s erved as co-curator of "\;Vienna 1900: Style and Identity"\; (2011) . Janis Staggs\, Director of Curatorial and Manager of Publications\, is th e co-curator for the exhibition. She organized "\;Wiener Werkstä\;t te Jewelry"\; (2008) and "\;Gustav Klimt and Adele Bloch-Bauer: The Woman in Gold"\; (2015)\, among other projects.

\n\n

The show is divided into three main chapters: "\;Foun ding Years\, 1903-05"\;\; "\;Harvesting Years\, 1906-14"\;\; an d "\;Years of Reinvention\, 1915-32."\; A concluding room will high light the Wiener Werkstä\;tte of America\, which was located on Fifth A venue in New York\, as well as Joseph Urban&rsquo\;s involvement with Willi am Randolph Hearst&rsquo\;s Cosmopolitan Productions. The second-floor gall eries will showcase major pieces of furniture\, works on paper\, and decora tive objects with their related design drawings.

\n\n

John Vinci of Vinci-Hamp Architects\, a Chicago-based firm\, is the exhibition designer. The show has been conceived to convey the ideal of the Gesamtkunstwerk\, or total work of art. Each of the three main gall eries will provide unique and immersive environments that reflect the indiv idual chapters of the presentation. Period wall treatments and other detail s will evoke the atmosphere of Wiener Werkstä\;tte interiors.

\n\n

A fully-illustrated catalogue\, designed by Pandiscio Co. and published by Prestel Verlag\, will accompany the exhibiti on. Essays by specialists in the field will cover the gamut of the Wiener W erkstä\;tte&rsquo\;s long history\, and include analysis of the various departments within the firm\, as well as in-depth examinations of other re lated subjects.

Judith Bernstein will present a new body of work\, specifically commissioned by The Drawing Center\, for her exhibition Cabinet of Horrors in the Main Gallery. Focusing on work made since Donald J. Trump was elected president in November 2016\, t he exhibition will include approximately fifteen new drawings\, four large- scale paper panel murals\, a series of drawn &ldquo\;dollar bills&rdquo\; a nd vintage piggy banks in vitrines\, and a free political campaign pin desi gned by Bernstein. As well\, the exhibition will feature one of Bernstein&r squo\;s earliest political drawings from 1969 and a selection of five &ldqu o\;Word Drawings&rdquo\; from 1995\, including: Liberty\, Just ice\, Equality\, Evil\, and Fear.
\n\nBernstein began engaging with social issues in her work during the 19 60s\, creating anti-Vietnam drawings\, monumental phalluses\, and pieces co nsisting entirely of her own signature. The present series of drawings use Trump&rsquo\;s own insult-driven\, childlike syntax and language to distill Bernstein&rsquo\;s anger\, disgust\, and disapproval of the current admini stration and its policies. Through her new series of drawings\, Bernstein t ransforms her critique into powerful graphic and text-based works.

Luhring Augustine is pleased t o announce the opening of \;Singles&rsquo\; Mixer\, a multi-pa rt video and sculptural installation by the American artist Mike Kelley.

\n\n

Mike Kelley (1954 &ndash\; 2012) was a visionary artist whose complex and diverse body of work forges an incisiv e exploration into the underpinnings of violence within American culture. H e rose to prominence in the 1980s with a series of sculptures in which he a ssembled discarded children&rsquo\;s toys and blankets to create ebullient works that hinged on despair. \;Traces of neglect\, trauma\, and other forms of abuse thread throughout the objects and social rituals represented within his practice. His work altogether remains defiantly irreverent\, us ing humor and absurdity as a tactic for subversion.

\n\n

One of Kelley&rsquo\;s most ambitious works is his monumen tal theater-turned-vaudeville installation entitled Day is Done (2 005). Comprised of thirty-one &ldquo\;reconstructions\,&rdquo\; Day is Done presents a collection of vignettes whose narratives are sourced f rom high school yearbook photographs depicting extracurricular activities. According to Kelley\, afterschool activities such as clubs\, sports\, and d ances are structured around socially accepted rituals that incite psycholog ical stress\, to which the mind reacts with a mechanism for subconscious re pression. Day is Done attempts to recover such lapses in memory th rough a medley of imagery\, props\, and performances that loosely formulate a theatrical play.

\n\n

On view at Luhr ing Augustine Bushwick is Extracurricular Activity Projective Reconstru ction #8 (Singles'\; Mixer)\, one of the many &ldquo\;reconstructio ns&rdquo\; within the larger production of Day is Done. Situated a t its center is a multi-channel video featuring an eclectic group of charac ters identified by Kelley as a computer nerd\, hillbilly\, Kiss fan\, witch \, and four African American women. While they engage in a seemingly innocu ous conversation about their dream men\, insinuations about class differenc es\, racial stereotypes\, and sexuality gradually surface. The script is os tensibly fictional\, though the nature of their exchange approximates real and relatable interactions occurring in society today. Fusing his personal history of abuse with references to popular culture\, Kelley encourages vie wers to project their own set of experiences and memories upon the work\, p iecing together a collective shared abuse which the artist sought to remedy .

\n\n

Born in 1954 in Detroit\, MI\, Ke lley received his B.A. in 1976 from the University of Michigan\, Ann Arbor\ , and his M.F.A. in 1978 from the California Institute of Art\, Valencia. I n his lifetime\, Kelley held solo exhibitions at numerous institutions worl dwide\, including the Musé\;e du Louvre\, Paris\; Institute of Contem porary Art\, London\; Tate Liverpool\; Museum Moderner Kunst\, Vienna\; Los Angeles County Museum of Art\; Whitney Museum of American Art\, New York\; and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden\, Washington\, D.C\, among many others. A retrospective of his work was held at the Stedelijk Museum in Ams terdam in 2012\, and subsequently traveled to MoMA PS1\, Long Island City ( 2013)\; Centre Georges Pompidou\, Paris (2013)\; and Museum of Contemporary Art\, Los Angeles (2014). \;

Los Angeles-based artist Liz G lynn presents her most ambitious project to date in MASS MoCA&rsquo\;s sign ature Building 5 gallery\, a sprawling sculptural experience of sight\, sen sation\, sound\, and scent stretching nearly a football field in length. The Archaeology of Another Possible Future expands Glynn&rsquo\;s in terest in the rise and fall of empires\, the assignment of cultural value\, and labor and production. This multi-level presentation &mdash\; which inv ites viewers to experience the museum&rsquo\;s former factory spaces from c atwalks 18 feet above the floor &mdash\; \;examines our physical and ps ychological relationship to our increasingly abstracted world. Glynn is par ticularly interested in the shift from a material-based economy to one in w hich technology companies seem to generate billion dollar valuations out of thin air\, nanotechnology continues to operate beyond the field of the vis ually apprehensible\, and capital is accumulated as a pure concept. Glynn s eeks to reconcile the presence of physical bodies and individual subjectivi ties within this contemporary state\, emphasizing the experience of physica l movement in time and space by creating a two-tiered labyrinth. She sugges ts the sense of ephemeralization through elevated walkways and platforms th at host digital printers above while presenting abstract sculptures below t hat translate abstract data into three-dimensional\, nearly tectonic forms and cave-like structures made of shipping pallets that host a number of ana log sensory experiences\, focusing on touch\, sound\, and scent.

Marking the first exhibition in a series that is designed to give an extended public forum to artists wh o have participated in the Captiva studio residency program of the Robert R auschenberg Foundation\, Thumbs up for the Mothership features ind ividual works as well as a collaborative installation by New Orleans concep tual artist Dawn DeDeaux and Alabamian self-taught sculptor and musician Lo nnie Holley. Deeply influenced by their southern roots\, both artists mine the landscapes around them for found objects (a nod to Rauschenberg&rsquo\; s &ldquo\;combines&rdquo\;) and engage in dialogues around issues of ecolog y and social justice. DeDeaux and Holley firmly believe that through art\, they can address these issues and &ldquo\;help heal the mothership.&rdquo\; Both DeDeaux and Holley frequently experiment with mixed media and incorpo rate performance into their practice &mdash\; ranging from totemic found ob jects and photography to experimental blues music and Afrofuturist philosop hies. These artists share a deeply held sense of resoluteness and optimism that infuses their art. Holley states: &ldquo\;There are so many rocks and so many broken stones and so many nails and sticks and weeds and debris and garbage and trash. We have to plow and mine the worst things on this earth to make them better\, and to make us better\, so we can show the world: I can handle it. I can deal with it. I can live with it. I can go on.&rdquo\;

Artist and activist Jimmie Durham (b. 1940) has worked as a vis ual artist\, performer\, essayist\, and poet for more than forty-five years . A political organizer for the American Indian Movement during the 1970s\, he was an active participant in the downtown New York City artistic commun ity in the 1980s. In 1987 he moved to Cuernavaca\, Mexico\, then to Europe in 1994\, where he has lived ever since. Predominantly a sculptor\, Durham often combines found objects and natural materials and incorporates text to expose Western-centric views and prejudices hidden in language\, objects\, and institutions. Calling himself an "\;interventionist\,"\; Durha m is oftentimes critical in his analysis of society but with a distinctive wit that is simultaneously generously humorous.

\n\n

Durham'\;s expansive practice spans sculpture \, drawing\, collage\, photography\, video\, and performance\, and the exhi bition includes close to 175 objects dating from 1970 to the present. It is accompanied by a catalogue comprising several scholarly essays\, an interv iew with the artist\, a chronology\, and a selection of Durham'\;s own w ritings\, both old and new. The first North American retrospective of Durha m'\;s work\, At the Center of the World traces his remarkable a ttentiveness to materials and characteristic approach to assemblage while d emonstrating his commitment to shedding light on the complexities of histor ical narratives\, notions of authenticity\, and the borders and boundaries that try to contain us.

\n

For more than twenty years\, Los Angeles&ndash\;based artist La ura Owens has pioneered an innovative&mdash\;and at times controversial&mda sh\;approach to painting that has made her one of the most influential arti sts of her generation. Her bold and experimental work challenges traditiona l assumptions about figuration and abstraction\, as well as the relationshi ps among avant-garde art\, craft\, pop culture\, and technology.

\n\n

This mid-career survey\, the mo st comprehensive of Owens&rsquo\;s work to-date\, will feature approximatel y 60 paintings from the mid-1990s until today\, as well as \;arti st&rsquo\;s books made specifically for the show. The exhibition will highl ight her significant strides over the past few years\, showing how the earl y work sets the stage for gripping new paintings and installations.< /p>\n\n

Owens emerged on the Los Angeles art scene during the mid-nineties\, at a time when many in the critical establishment viewed painting with suspicion. Her early canvases u pended the traditions of painterly abstraction by incorporating goofy perso nal allusions\, doodling\, and common craft materials. These works often de monstrated her keen interest in how paintings function in a given room and used illusionistic techniques to extend the plane of a wall or floor direct ly into the space of her pictures. More recently\, she has charted a dramat ic transformation in her work\, marshaling all of her previous interests an d talents within large-scale paintings that make virtuosic use of silkscree n\, computer manipulation\, digital printing\, and material exploration. Th e Whitney has a longstanding commitment to Owens\, who has been featured in two Biennials\, and is significantly represented in the Museum&rsquo\;s co llection. \;

Talwar Gal lery\, New York is pleased to present Maati.Maa\, an exhibition of new paintings by Shambhavi Singh.

\n\n

The works in Maati.Maa mark a turn within Sham bhavi&rsquo\;s practice: a shift in both perspective and palette that allow s for the entrance of light and sky into works whose focus has been deeply rooted in the earth. In works like the recent Maati 6\, sinuous li nes wind their way not only through elemental ground\, but also up into air that vibrates with color. The artist&rsquo\;s steadfast investigation of t he potency of the motif matures over the course of the exhibition: the meyrd\, or the barriers of mounded earth that divide farmland\, recur as all of the works&rsquo\; central meditation. In Shambhavi&rsquo\;s handl ing\, however\, and especially in the more recent Maati (&ldquo\;E arth&rdquo\;) series\, the meyrd bridge division as much as they mark it. A ppearing like the currents of a vital\, irrepressible life\, the lines flui dly move past any breaks in the canvases\, forming a counterpoint to the ho rizon-lines\, so evocative of dawn rather than dusk\, that her diptychs and triptychs evoke. Shambhavi&rsquo\;s canvases achieve a translucence and fl uidity unprecedented in her oeuvre\, despite the solidity of their backing\ , both physical and intellectual&mdash\;a clarity that may reflect the arti st&rsquo\;s recent struggle with the body&rsquo\;s vulnerability to illness \, as well as its resilience. Human in scale\, each work in Maati.Maa highlights Shambhavi&rsquo\;s unwavering commitment to the individual\, the material\, the local&mdash\;even while\, viewed together\, the works u nite with an expansive\, soaring force that speaks to the breadth of the ar tist&rsquo\;s vision.

\n\n

Over the course of her three-decade career\, Shambhavi has staked he r interest deeply in the earth&mdash\;its nurturing fecundity\, its overwhe lming might\, its unexpected precarity&mdash\;as well as in the relationshi p between the land and those who cultivate it. Developing from her childhoo d in the rural and largely agricultural state of Bihar\, Shambhavi&rsquo\;s engagement with the natural has taken form in painting\, sculpture\, and i nstallation&mdash\;in each medium holding open\, in graceful tension\, the generative space between figuration and abstraction. Her work\, concerned w ith the power and plight of the farmer as both mythified figure and real wo rker\, as well as the sustainability of the modern practices towards the ea rth\, gains greater relevance with each day&mdash\;even as it provides both a message of hope and a call for action.

\n\n

Shambhavi Shambhavi&rsquo\;s works have been exh ibited in India\, New York\, Australia\, South Africa\, Singapore and the N etherlands\, and are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Ar t (MoMA)\, NY\, among other institutions and private collections worldwide. Shambhavi was born in 1966 in Bihar\, India. She received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Painting at the College of Fine Arts and Crafts\, Patna\, and a Masters of Fine Arts and Painting from the College of Arts\, New Delhi. Shambhavi lives and works in Delhi.

The photographs and films of Ren& eacute\; Magritte came to light in the mid-1970s\, more than ten years afte r the Surrealist artist&rsquo\;s death. The discovery of these gem-like tre asures has led to a deeper understanding of the close relationship Magritte maintained with photography. They reveal how he used these tools to experi ment with his ideas\, while providing rare access to an informal side of th e artist and those with whom he surrounded himself. \;These images\, wh ich he often executed or collaborated with others to produce\, contribute t o our overall understanding of this intrepid artist\, and provide key visua l insight into Magritte&rsquo\;s relationship with the photographic medium\ , and its role within his greater oeuvre.  \;

\n\n

Regarded as one of the most important artists of the post-war e ra in Europe\, René\; Magritte was a leading figure in the Surrealist movement. He sought revolution against the rational mind\, stating\, &ldqu o\;Everything we see hides another thing\; we always want to see what is hi dden by what we see.&rdquo\; Widely recognized for his stunning\, and often haunting paintings which juxtapose common objects within dream-like scenar ios\, Magritte was a master provocateur. Revisiting motifs of cloth-covered figures\, objects in flight\, and concealed identity have become a well-kn own hallmark of his distinct sensibility\, often signaling back to trauma o f the artist&rsquo\;s past. His Surrealist masterpieces tantalize and disto rt reality\, evoking a singular sense of mystery within the viewer. Magritt e&rsquo\;s approach to painting and sculpture avoided stylistic distraction s of modern art making. His recently discovered films and photographs revea l how he used these art forms to explore the bounds of his imagination.

\n\n

His photographs and films were the subjec t of the major exhibition\, René\; Magritte: The Revealing Image\ , Photos and Films at the Latrobe Gallery\, Victoria\, Australia (Augu st 19 - November 19\, 2017).

This fall\, the New-York Histo rical Society presents a groundbreaking exhibition on one of the most contr oversial events of the 20th century: the Vietnam War. Populating a 3\,000-s quare-foot gallery with interpretive displays\, digital media\, artwork\, a rtifacts\, photographs\, and documents\, the exhibit will provide an enligh tening account of the causes\, progression\, and impact of the war. Spannin g the duration of U.S. involvement in Indochina from 1945 to 1975\, the nar rative will incorporate perspectives that cover \;both the home front a nd the war front.

\n\n

Displays will fea ture such topics as the Cold War\, the draft\, military campaigns initiated by both sides\, the growth of the antiwar movement\, the role of the presi dent\, and the loss of political consensus. Throughout the exhibition\, vis itors will explore themes of patriotism\, duty\, and citizenship. Key objec ts will include a troopship berthing unit\, vibrant antiwar posters\, artwo rk by Vietnam vets\, a Viet Cong bicycle\, the Pentagon Papers\, and histor ical film footage. Long overdue in the realm of public history\, the exhibi t will not only provide a chronological and thematic analysis of the Vietna m War but also inspire a fuller\, more diverse conversation about the war. The exhibition is curated by Marci Reaven\, vice president of history exhib itions. \;The exhibition'\;s \;illustrated compa nion book \;may be purchased at the NYHistory Store. \;

'\;Concrete Truth: Art and the Documentary'\; considers vital questions around fact and image-m aking. The exhibition presents recent lens-based works positioned at the bo undary of art and the documentary.

\n\n

During the last two decades\, visual artists have revitalized do cumentary practices\, facilitated by new media technologies and modes of ci rculation. Documentary approaches help us bear witness to both individual a nd collective realities\, often using found footage\, biographical narrativ es\, textual documents\, and historic reenactments. The artists in Concrete Truth respond to times of crisis by interweaving documentary practices\, a esthetics and ethics. Several artists in the exhibition employ documentary formats as a strategy to construct counter-narratives\, in works that deal with a range of concerns including the histories of Indigenous peoples\, th e role of media in political conflict\, internet ethics\, the abuse of gove rnmental power\, and archives and copyright issues.

\n\n

Artists in the exhibition include Edgardo Arag& oacute\;n\, Eric Baudelaire\, Paolo Cirio\, Maryam Jafri\, belit sağ\, and Krista Belle Stewart.

\n\n

&# 39\;Concrete Truth: Art and the Documentary'\; takes stock of documentar y art work produced in the last few years\, and highlights the various ways artists represent political and social realities in an age of global disin formation. Among the works on view will be a video by Krista Belle Stewart that combines 1960s documentary footage of the artist&rsquo\;s mother at th e beginning of her career as British Columbia&rsquo\;s first Aboriginal pub lic health nurse with her mother&rsquo\;s recent testimonies of the trauma she endured in an Indian Residential School. Current ISCP resident Paolo Ci rio&rsquo\;s installation obfuscates the 15 million mugshots made public on internet databases for corporate profit. Photographs of the independence c eremonies of Asian and African nations are the subject of Maryam Jafri&rsqu o\;s work\, specifically looking at the ways these images have been illegal ly copyrighted by stock agencies and digitally &ldquo\;colonized.&rdquo\; U sing landscape as a sign of the political climate\, Eric Baudelaire traces the story of a young man from his troubled home in the Parisian suburbs to Syria\, where he joins ISIS. Edgardo Aragó\;n&rsquo\;s critical carto graphy and video of everyday conditions in Cachimbo\, Mexico\, demonstrates the crippling effects of foreign power. The amnesia of both public and per sonal memory&mdash\;framed by a bombardment of contentious media images in Turkish politics&mdash\;shapes belit sağ&rsquo\;s activist artwork.< /p>\n\n

'\;Concrete Truth'\; will be accompanied by public programs including a conversation between Paolo C irio and Julia Powles in December\, and a lecture by Krista Belle Stewart i n early 2018\, among other events.

If you want to find the truth in something\, take it apart piece by piece\ , then put it back together with the detail of a forensic scientist. This i s a classical way to deconstruct a narrative. However\, when you stand in f ront of 24 Hour Psycho (1993) slowly unfolding piece by piece\, af ter five minutes\, you&rsquo\;ve lost track of where the narrative started. I like this idea that you can take almost a scientific method and end up l ost in a labyrinth of multiple\, conflicting meanings\, and that you have t o acknowledge your own forgetfulness.
\n&mdash\;Douglas Gordon

\n\n

Gagosian is pleased to present &ldquo \;back and forth and forth and back\,&rdquo\; an exhibition of two key film works by Douglas Gordon: 24 Hour Psycho Back and Forth and To and Fro< /em> (2008) and 5 Year Drive-By (1995).

\n\n

In his projections\, installations\, photographs\, text works \, performances\, and more\, Gordon investigates collective memory and self hood\, whether divided\, fragmented\, or dissolved altogether. His interest in temporal manipulation is especially evident in his films and videos\; u sing his own work and that of others as raw material\, he distorts time in order to disorient and challenge.

\n\n

F or both films in &ldquo\;back and forth and forth and back\,&rdquo\; Gordon has diffused the suspense and longing of their original plots\, forming ne w conditions for viewing and absorbing their content. In 5 Year Drive-B y (1995)\, the controversial American Western The Searchers ( 1956) is slowed down from its original 119 minutes to five years\, reflecti ng the narrative in the film where a middle-aged Civil War veteran named Et han Edwards (played by John Wayne) spends five years searching for his lost niece\, who was taken by a Comanche tribe. While the original film\, direc ted by John Ford\, is full of fast-paced\, dynamic scenes\, as Edwards trav els across the technicolor desert landscape\, 5 Year Drive-By move s so slowly that the frame only changes every twenty-four minutes\, causing the moving image to appear almost as a billboard still.

\n\n

On the other hand\, 24 Hour Psycho Back and Forth and To and Fro (2008) allows time to flow forward and backward at the same time\, exacerbating the already unsettling plot of Alfred Hitchcock&r squo\;s iconic thriller Psycho (1960). While Gordon&rsquo\;s earli er 24 Hour Psycho (1993) slowed down Hitchcock&rsquo\;s original t o a few frames per second\, extending the duration of the film to 24 hours\ , 24 Hour Psycho Back and Forth and To and Fro introduces an addit ional layer of distortion. The film plays on two adjoining screens: on one\ , the film starts from the beginning\, and on the other it starts from the end\, so that for an unbearably brief moment (one twenty-fourth of a second )\, after waiting for twelve hours\, the screens show the same sequence\, t he mirrored images resembling a giant\, slow-moving Rorschach test.

\n\n

Using edited footage as a malleable resour ce\, Gordon sets up new definitions of suspense and climax. Rather than wai ting for John Wayne to storm in on horseback\, or for Janet Leigh&rsquo\;s killer to appear in silhouette\, knife in hand\, behind her\, viewers of Go rdon&rsquo\;s film works enter a hypnotic and photographic spectacle with t he hope of simply seeing a frame change\, or for two temporal directions to overlap.

\n\n

A 24-hour screeni ng of 24 Hour Psycho Back and Forth and To and Fro will take place at the 21st Street gallery on November 17\, starting at 1 0am and finishing on November 18 at 10am< /strong>. The gallery will then resume normal hours on the 18th (10 am&ndash\;6pm).

Since early on in his career A ngel Otero has aligned his practice to the oldest and most revered painting tradition\, which he endeavors to constantly reinvent it. Thus\, Otero not only retains a commitment to making paintings and sculptures\, but at key points in his career he has underscored that dedication with a personal mis sion to revisit key examples of the art of the past. Using a disciplined\, thoroughgoing\, empirical studio process\, Otero has established a composit ional method that brings together and pulls apart disparate artistic influe nces to develop his own unique visual language.

\n\n

Guest curator Christian \;Viveros-Fauné\; invites us to consider Otero&rsquo\;s own evolving process of formal innovation in re lation to that of the artist Robert Motherwell. A leading Abstract Expressi onist and the author of over one hundred paintings that he titled Elegy to the Spanish Republic (completed between 1948 and 1967)\, Motherwel l created his mostly monochrome canvases as a &ldquo\;lamentation or funera l song&rdquo\; on the subject of the Spanish Civil War. Invariably\, these works have also served as illustrations of the power of abstract art to tak e on both urgent themes and modernity&rsquo\;s constant need for artistic i nnovation.

\n\n

&ldquo\;Every intelligen t painter carries the whole culture of modern painting in his head\,&rdquo\ ; Motherwell once said. &ldquo\;It is the real subject\, of which everythin g he paints is both an homage and a critique\, and everything he says is a gloss.&rdquo\; The work Angel Otero has produced for the Bronx Museum are n ot elegies in the typical sense\, but celebrations of twenty-first century painterly innovation and of the resilience of art during times of change.\n\n

Insp ired by the boundless humanism in Walt Whitman&rsquo\;s poem &ldquo\;Crossi ng Brooklyn Ferry\,&rdquo\; Susannah Ray has developed a new series of phot ographs on the waterways of New York City. In his poem\, Whitman calls out to the tides\, the gulls\, the ferry passengers\, the light\, the clouds\, the ships\, the sailors\, the waves\, the cities on the far shore. In his e yes\, all humans are divine\, their reflected faces anointed by &ldquo\;fin e spokes of light&rdquo\; in the passing waters. At the Bronx Museum\, Ray will present a selection of images captured specifically in the Bronx.

\ n\n

In its fuller scope\, A Further Sho re conjures the distant spires of Manhattan\, as seen across the bays and harbors\, rivers and creeks\, and also returns the viewer to the far re aches of the outer boroughs. There\, time moves according to season\, cease lessly circling back upon itself\, eschewing the forward march of the grid. Daylight lengthens\, the water warms and resounds with voices and motors. Daylight shortens\, the waters cool into icy silence. Shoreline remnants ta ngle into fictive histories. Bridges arc from shore to shore\, steel longin gs drawn between boroughs\, eternally crossing the tides below.

\n\n

A Further Shore reveals the waterways and shorelines of New York City as spaces of escape\, revelation and trans cendence. Like Whitman'\;s poetry\, the photographs plumb a communal hum an connection to the water\, one that exists as potently now as it did in h is century.

\n\n

Best known for his monumental cuts\, holes\, apertures\, and excisions to the facades of derelict homes a nd historic buildings in New York\, New Jersey\, Chicago\, and abroad\, Gor don Matta-Clark&rsquo\;s work conveys a potent critique of architecture' \;s role vis-à\;-vis the capitalist system. Taking as a point of depa rture the pivotal series of &ldquo\;cuts&rdquo\; produced in the Bronx in t he early 1970s that led to his further exploration of the city as a field o f action\, Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect will examine the artist &rsquo\;s pioneering social\, relational\, and activist approach. The exhib ition highlights the political dialogue inherent in the artist&rsquo\;s art istic interventions&mdash\;from his concern for the extreme plight of the h omeless\, his interest in direct community engagement\, his belief that we should expand our lived experience of a city into its underground and other inaccessible spaces\, and his commentary on development and socioeconomic stratification.

\n\n

Gordon Matta-Cl ark: Anarchitect includes over 100 artworks by the artist\, rarely see n materials from his archive\, and immersive film projections. On view begi nning November 2017\, Gordon Matta-Clark: Anarchitect is organized by Antonio Sergio Bessa\, Bronx Museum Director of Curatorial and Educatio n Programs\; and Jessamyn Fiore\, independent curator and co-director of th e Matta-Clark Estate.

\n\n

I had two striking realizations: one\, that even if I produced the worst paintings possible\, they would not be good enough\; and two\, that idealism is unavoidable.
\n&mdash\;Neil Jenney

\n\n

Gagosian is pleased to present dra wings and paintings by Neil Jenney.

\n\n

A maverick in twentieth cent ury American art\, Jenney shifted his focus from abstract painting and scul pture in order to pursue a new type of realism\, adopting the binary of &ld quo\;bad&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;good&rdquo\; paintings. He began to make the < em>Bad Paintings in the 1960s\, referring to them as such after Marcia Tucker&rsquo\;s exhibition &ldquo\;Bad Painting&rdquo\; at the New Museum in 1978. These purposefully sketchy\, gestural works poked at preconception s of taste and connoisseurship\, and\, according to Jenney\, were &ldquo\;g ood concepts painted badly.&rdquo\; With them\, he sought to indicate narra tive truth through the depiction of elementary relationships between people and things. The Good Paintings\, ongoing since the 1970s\, pursue this same goal\, but through an opposite approach. Using oil paint on wood panel\, Jenney produces flawless\, heavily stylized studies of the North A merican landscape\, each surface so detailed that it seems to surpass reali ty. And most recently\, in the New Good Paintings\, he has expande d his scope to include other geographic locations\, creating vistas that ar e as disorienting as they are clear.

\n\n

The current exhibition\, hi s third with Gagosian since joining in 2011\, includes one painting from ea ch of these three key phases in Jenney&rsquo\;s career\, as well as a selec tion of drawings\, which further reveal his social and artistic concerns. F irst\, in Moms and Kids (1969)&mdash\;a dichotomous title typical of the Bad Paintings&mdash\;children play on swings and a seesaw w hile their mothers watch from a bench nearby. A fence separates the childre n from a black road\, and the larger area of the canvas is filled in with f resh green acrylic paint\, thinly applied in wayward\, untidy strokes. Next is Ozarkia (2014)\, a late Good Painting\, which shows\, in smoothly blended oil paint\, a long branch\, rocks\, and the gleaming s urface of water\, a horizonless view so crisp that one can almost feel the cool mountain air of the American Midwest to which the title refers. Lastly \, a New Good Painting titled Modern Africa (2016) evokes the dry climate of northern Africa\, depicting a staircase and a ramp-like fragment surrounded by sand\, with footprints and a long shadow suggesting human presence. All of the paintings are displayed in heavy black wooden f rames\, designed and made by Jenney. The frames recall the crown moulding o ften used on window trims\, alluding to Leon Battista Alberti'\;s metaph orical window\, which has guided artists&rsquo\; understanding of single-po int perspective since the Renaissance. Jenney&rsquo\;s frames\, concurrent with the Good and New Good Paintings\, and added to the < em>Bad Paintings retrospectively\, serve as theatrical foregrounds\, w hile their respective titles\, stenciled on in a capitalized serif font\, h elp place the viewer by referring to specific locations.

\n\n

In the Good Paintings and the New Good Paintings\, &ldquo\;good& rdquo\; is both a formal and a conceptual label\; Jenney&rsquo\;s refined u se of paint and color recalls that of the Hudson River School painters\, wh ose natural vistas presented the virgin landscape as a spiritual\, utopic r ealm. Similarly\, Jenney&rsquo\;s work addresses themes of universal signif icance\, such as the artist&rsquo\;s cultural role\, climate change\, and n otions of societal progress. He communicates these topics in his drawings a s well\; in Liberty Contemplating the Nuclear Age (2003)\, a woman wearing a crown and holding a stone tablet\, like the Statue of Liberty\, sits in front of a curtain\, staring into the future of the nation.< /p>\n\n

Pace Gallery is pleased to pre sent an exhibition of new wire pieces by Richard Tuttle created in response to and installed with grey paintings by Agnes Martin. On view November 2\, 2017 through January 13\, 2018 at 32 East 57th Street\, Agn es Martin\, Richard Tuttle: Crossing Lines marks the first time in nea rly 20 years that works by the two artists and longtime friends have been s hown together in a focused exhibition. An opening reception will be held on Thursday\, November 2\, from 6 &ndash\; 8 p.m.

\n\n

Tuttle and Martin first met in the early 1960s at Betty Parson s Gallery in New York and remained close friends until Martin&rsquo\;s deat h in 2004. Martin was a contemporary of the Abstract Expressionists and ide ntified her work with the movement\, but her painting also presaged the arr ival of Minimalism. Comprised of vertical and horizontal lines and grids pa inted upon washes of subdued color\, Martin&rsquo\;s paintings delicately n avigate line\, surface\, tone\, and repetition\, inducing a sense of sereni ty\, much like a mantra. Tuttle\, too\, has investigated similar concerns o f line\, volume\, color\, shadow\, and perception throughout his career. Wh ereas Martin operated largely within the confines of painting and drawing\, Tuttle&rsquo\;s practice eludes formal categorization and is grounded in h andmade constructions of ordinary materials\, such as wire\, tape\, thread\ , and cardboard that are raised to the pinnacle of beauty.

\n\n

&ldquo\;It&rsquo\;s an honor to have the opportunit y to bring together works by Agnes Martin and Richard Tuttle&mdash\;two art ists who shared such a special relationship with one another and are pivota l figures in the ongoing evolution of modern and contemporary art&mdash\;an d to reveal how much these artists acted from the same search of innocence and beauty\,&rdquo\; said Arne Glimcher\, Founder\, Pace Gallery.

\n\n

Once the seven paintings by Martin\, from th e 1960s through the early 2000s\, are installed and lit\, Tuttle will creat e new wire pieces that respond to the paintings and engage with the distinc t light and shadow of their illuminations. First begun in the early 1970s\, Tuttle&rsquo\;s wire pieces exist as dimensional drawings comprising three elements: a pencil line on a wall\, wire\, and shadow. In an intensely phy sical process that Tuttle describes as &ldquo\;an activity\,&rdquo\; wire i s attached to the wall near the endpoints of the pencil line and then allow ed to spring or fall away from the surface\, creating its shadow as the thi rd element of the piece. The final qualities and experience of each piece&m dash\;the saturation of the shadow\, the visibility and thrust of the wire\ , the thickness of the pencil line&mdash\;result from the specificities of each one&rsquo\;s distinct environment fused with the artist&rsquo\;s own p hysicality.

Agnes Mart in (b. 1912\, Macklin\, Saskatchewan\, Canada\; d. 2004\, Taos\, N ew Mexico)\, one of the most influential painters of her generation\, left an indelible mark on the history of modern and contemporary art. Growing up in western Canada\, she moved between New Mexico and New York throughout h er early career. For a pivotal decade starting in 1957\, Martin lived and w orked in Coenties Slip\, a neighborhood in lower Manhattan she shared with emerging artists including Ellsworth Kelly\, before returning to New Mexico in 1967. Inspired by the transcendent qualities of paintings by Mark Rothk o and Ad Reinhardt\, Martin considered herself to be an Abstract Expression ist. Nonetheless\, her oeuvre played a critical role in heralding the adven t of Minimalism\, influencing\, among others\, Eva Hesse&rsquo\;s sculptura l practice and Sol LeWitt&rsquo\;s wall drawings. Characterized by austere lines and grids superimposed upon muted grounds of color\, Martin&rsquo\;s paintings elegantly negotiate the confines of structure and space\, draftsm anship\, and the metaphysical.

\n\n

Richard Tuttle&rsquo\;s (b. 1941\, Rahway\, New Jersey) direct and seemingly simple deployment of objects and gestures reflects a careful attention to materials and experience. Rejecting the rationality and preci sion of Minimalism\, Tuttle embraced a handmade quality in his invention of forms that emphasize line\, shape\, color\, and space as central concerns. He has resisted medium-specific designations for his work\, employing the term drawing to encompass what could otherwise be termed sculpture\, painti ng\, collage\, installation\, and assemblage. Overturning traditional const raints of material\, medium\, and method\, Tuttle&rsquo\;s works sensitize viewers to their perceptions. His working process\, in which one series beg ets the next\, is united by a consistent quest to create objects that are e xpressions of their own totality.

Tyler Rollins Fine Art is plea sed to present Wild State of Mind\, a solo exhibition of new works by Ronald Ventura\, taking place at our gallery in New York City from Octo ber 26 &ndash\; December 22\, 2017.  \;The public is cordially invited to join the artist for the opening reception on Thursday\, October 26\, fro m 6:00 &ndash\; 8:00 pm.

\n\n

Born in 19 73 in Manila\, the Philippines\, where he continues to live and work\, Vent ura ranks as one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation in Southea st Asia. Over the past twenty years\, his dynamically evolving oeuvre has e xhibited an eclectic range of iconography and a wide variety of themes and subjects\, taking formal risks that push the boundaries of image-making. Th e exhibition probes the intersections between reality and fiction\, madness and sanity\, logic and instinct\, breaking down the dualities that impose a sharp divide between humans and wild animals. Ventura draws from contempo rary social practices and culture\, placing his hybrid creatures in scenes of merrymaking\, parading\, brawling\, or playing sports &ndash\; contexts that elicit extreme emotions but are very much part of our lived realities today. He incorporates often ominous imagery and symbols\, ranging from tra ffic warning signs to firearms\, that appear in a new kind of urban wildern ess that is the contemporary counterpart to the sinister\, mysterious fores ts of age-old legends and fairy tales.

\n\n

Ventura presented his first US solo exhibition\, Metaphysics of Ski n\, at Tyler Rollins Fine Art in 2009\, followed by A Thousand Isl ands in 2011 and E.R. (Endless Resurrection) in 2014. A major solo exhibition of his work\, Project: Finding Home\, took place in 2016 at the Museum of Contemporary Art\, Taipei\, while in 2017 the Metr opolitan Museum\, Manila\, presented another solo exhibition\, Shadow F orest: Encounters and Explorations. Concurrently with Wild State o f Mind\, Ventura&rsquo\;s work is featured in Out of Sight! \; Art of the Senses at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery\, Buffalo\, New Yor k\, USA.

\n

On his first trip to Mexico\, in 1935\, Josef Albers (1888- 1976) encountered the magnificent architecture of ancient Mesoamerica. He l ater remarked in a letter to Vasily Kandinsky\, a former colleague at the B auhaus\, &ldquo\;Mexico is truly the promised land of abstract art.&rdquo\; With his wife\, artist Anni Albers (1899- 1994)\, Josef Albers visited Mex ico and other Latin American countries nearly a dozen times from 1935&ndash \;67. They saw numerous archeological sites and monuments\, especially in M exico and Peru. On each visit\, he took hundreds of black-and-white photogr aphs of the pyramids\, shrines\, and sanctuaries at these sites\, often gro uping multiple images printed at various scales onto 8 by 10 inch sheets.\n\n

Albers&rsquo\;s innovative approach to photography remains an underappreciated aspect of his career. This exhib ition brings together his photographs and photo collages from the Guggenhei m&rsquo\;s collection and various lenders. These works\, many of which have never been exhibited publicly\, suggest a nuanced relationship between the forms and motifs of pre-Columbian monuments and the artist&rsquo\;s iconic abstract canvases. Albers&rsquo\;s experiences in Latin America offer an e ssential context for understanding his paintings and prints\, particularly from his Homage to the Square and Variant/Adobe series\, examples of which are featured in this show.

Josef Albers in Mexico is organized by Lauren Hinkson\, Associate Cur ator\, Collections.

The growing field of sound des ign gives an audible voice to products\, brands\, and interfaces. Through s ound\, our digital devices and products tell us when we have completed a ta sk\, received a message\, or achieved a goal. Now imagine this world of pro ducts with no sound&mdash\;no chimes\, buzzes\, or rings. How does the lack of sound diminish the usefulness of products? How does sound enhance and i nform your experience?

\n\n

This hands-o n exhibition invites you to become a sound designer for Trash Bot\, a stree t-cleaning machine. A sound designer uses melody\, ambient sound\, and spec ial effects to communicate. Each sound you create will communicate Trash Bo t&rsquo\;s actions and express the machine&rsquo\;s personality and emotion s. As you design sounds for Trash Bot\, think about how each sound will gui de users through their interactions with Trash Bot and&mdash\;just as impor tantly&mdash\;transform an anonymous machine into an appealing\, human-like presence.

We mark the hundredth annivers ary of Auguste Rodin&rsquo\;s death\, in 1917\, with an installation of our remarkable collection of 58 Rodin bronzes\, acquired through a generous gi ft from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation in 1983.

\n\n

Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze highlights the extraordinary tension in Rodin&rsquo\;s work between t he figure itself and abstract form\, allowing the fluid contours\, animated surfaces\, and emotional presence of these bronzes to emerge fully. The pr esentation places the works in their historical context\, examining Rodin&r squo\;s legacy and reputation\, and exploring his sculptural practice and t he bronze casting process.

\n\n

Rodin he ralded a new era in sculpture\, and he is represented here through each pha se of his prolific career\, including both small and monumental works relat ed to his best-known commissions: The Gates of Hell (begun 1880)\, the Monument to Balzac (1891&ndash\;98)\, and The Burghers of Calais (1884&ndash\;95). Also featured are some of his sensitively re ndered studies of hands as well as fragments of ancient sculptures from our collection that are similar to those that inspired Rodin.

Ahmed Mater: Mecca Journey s takes visitors through the holiest city in the Islamic world. It pre sents a compelling portrait of the massive urban redevelopment now under wa y and its effects on residents and the millions of hajj pilgrims w ho travel there every year. Saudi artist Ahmed Mater has documented this un precedented expansion for nearly a decade.

\n\n

The exhibition is anchored by monumental photographs from his proje ct Desert of Pharan: Unofficial Histories Behind the Mass Expansion of Mecca\, alongside large-scale videos and installations. In addition to showing the influx of wealth\, photographs detail the lives of workers on constructions sites and of migrant groups.

\n\n

"\;I need to be here\, in the city of Mecca\, now\, experiencin g\, absorbing\, and recording my place in this moment of transformation\, a fter which things may never be the same again\,"\; states Mater. "\ ;It has become important for me to identify with this place and to understa nd how this constellation of change\, as well as the forces that are shapin g it\, will affect the community of which I am a part."\;

\n\n

Focusing on Mecca as both a symbolic site of wor ship and a contemporary urban center grappling with the consequences of unr emitting growth\, Mecca Journeys presents a portrait of the comple x cultural dynamics at work in the city today.

\n\n

 \;

\n\n

Ahmed Mater : Mecca Journeys is curated by Catherine Morris\, Sackler Senior Curat or\, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art\, Brooklyn Museum.

This presentation in the Museum'\;s fourth-floor collection gallerie s will focus exclusively on works made by artists in their mid to late care ers. Spanning from the late 1960s to today\, the installation chronicles th e many years of sustained experimentation\, daring invention\, and thoughtf ul reconsideration that distinguish an individual artist&rsquo\;s career lo ng after his or her breakthrough moment. Highlighting lesser-known works by prominent artists and key works by some less familiar names\, The Long Run provides another view of the history of art over the last half ce ntury. All works are drawn from MoMA'\;s collection\, and includes examp les by Lee Bontecou\, Louise Bourgeois\, Melvin Edwards\, Gego\, Philip Gus ton\, David Hammons\, Jasper Johns\, Joan Jonas\, Maria Lassnig\, Elizabeth Murray\, Georgia O&rsquo\;Keeffe\, Gerhard Richter\, and many others.

Drawn primarily from MoMA'\;s collection\, Thinking Machines: Ar t and Design in the Computer Age\, 1959&ndash\;1989 brings artworks pr oduced using computers and computational thinking together with notable exa mples of computer and component design. The exhibition reveals how artists\ , architects\, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technolog y deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic production. The arti sts featured in Thinking Machines exploited the potential of emerg ing technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with insti tutions and corporations that provided access to cutting-edge machines. The y channeled the promise of computing into kinetic sculpture\, plotter drawi ng\, computer animation\, and video installation. Photographers and archite cts likewise recognized these technologies'\; capacity to reconfigure hu man communities and the built environment.

\n\n

Thinking Machines includes works by John Cage and Lejaren Hiller\, Waldemar Cordeiro\, Charles Csuri\, Richard Hamilton\, Alison Know les\, Beryl Korot\, Vera Molná\;r\, Cedric Price\, and Stan VanDerBee k\, alongside computers designed by Tamiko Thiel and others at Thinking Mac hines Corporation\, IBM\, Olivetti\, and Apple Computer. The exhibition com bines artworks\, design objects\, and architectural proposals to trace how computers transformed aesthetics and hierarchies\, revealing how these thin king machines reshaped art making\, working life\, and social connections.< /p>\n\n

\n

Stephen Shore encompasses the entirety of the artist&rsquo\;s work of the last five decades\, during which he has conducted a continual\, restless interrogation of image making\, from the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager to his current engagement with digital platforms.

\n \n

One of the most significant photographer s of our time\, Stephen Shore (American\, b. 1947) has often been considere d alongside other artists who rose to prominence in the 1970s by capturing the mundane aspects of American popular culture in straightforward\, unglam orous images. But Shore has worked with many forms of photography\, switchi ng from cheap automatic cameras to large-format cameras in the 1970s\, pion eering the use of color before returning to black and white in the 1990s\, and in the 2000s taking up the opportunities of digital photography\, digit al printing\, and social media.

\n\n

The artist&rsquo\;s first survey in New York to include his entire career\, th is exhibition will both allow for a fuller understanding of Shore&rsquo\;s work\, and demonstrate his singular vision&mdash\;defined by an interest in daily life\, a taste for serial and often systematic approaches\, a strong intellectual underpinning\, a restrained style\, sly humor\, and visual ca sualness&mdash\;and uncompromising pursuit of photography&rsquo\;s possibil ities.

In the Book of Malachi and the statements of R. Shila the angel is a witness\, an agent of surveillance\;  \; likewise\, a recording angel in Judaic\, Christian\, and Islamic an gelology takes account of a person&rsquo\;s \; actions\, thoughts\, and feelings. Divine protectors that are also observers\, observers that are s urveillors\, \; surveillors that ensure the social order or other order s of support: whether monastic\, cosmological\, or of a \; physical lan guage behind the liturgical scene. \;

\n\n

Angels are said to leave material traces or questions of their mater iality. For Duns Scotus they are \; immaterial\, subject to a physics w ithout body\, but with the place\, finitude\, and laws that act on bodied\,  \; finite creatures. In depictions\, they appear as desireless\, gende rless beings. In Islam\, they are described \; as spirits blown into li ght analogously to humans\, who are blown into form. They transform through  \; civilizations to suit the particular vein of protection they are to embody. \;

& ldquo\;The inner life was like a haunted house. But what else could it be? It contained everything. Everything \; extraneous had been put into it. The entire history of the individual. Everything that had previously \ ; belonged to everybody\, everything that had been collective property and had existed in the world in \; which everyone lived\, had to be contain ed by the individual. It could not be expected that things would \; be quiet in the inner self.&rdquo\;&mdash\;J. H. Van den Berg \;

We mark the hundredth anniversary of Auguste Rodin&rsquo\;s death\, in 1917\, with an installation of our remarkable collection of 58 R odin bronzes\, acquired through a generous gift from the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation in 1983.

\n\n

Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze \;highlights the extraordinary tension in Rodin&rs quo\;s work between the figure itself and abstract form\, allowing the flui d contours\, animated surfaces\, and emotional presence of these bronzes to emerge fully. The presentation places the works in their historical contex t\, examining Rodin&rsquo\;s legacy and reputation\, and exploring his scul ptural practice and the bronze casting process.

\n\n

Rodin heralded a new era in sculpture\, and he is represented here through each phase of his prolific career\, including both small and monumental works related to his best-known commissions: \;The Gates of Hell \;(begun 1880 )\, the \;Monument to Balzac \;(1891&ndash\;98)\, and  \;The Burghers of Calais \;(1884&ndash\;95). Also featured are some of his sensitively rendered studies of hands as well as fragments of ancient sculptures from our collection that are similar to those that inspi red Rodin.

\n\n

Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze \;is organized by Lisa Small\, Senior Curator\, European Art\, Broo klyn Museum.

\n\n

This exhibition is made possible through the generou s support of the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Foundation.

\n\n

It is pres ented as part of Rodin100\, a worldwide series of major Rodin exhibitions i n 2017 commemorating the centennial of the artist'\;s death.

White Columns is pleased to present the first N ew York solo exhibition by Andrew Cannon (b. 1988\, Redlands\, CA.) Cannon& rsquo\;s exhibition comprises six recent wall-mounted works that operate in an elastic territory somewhere between architecture\, painting and sculptu re.
\n \;
\nAt White Columns Cannon&rsquo\;s hybrid works neg otiate the classical genres of landscape (e.g. &lsquo\;Italy in Goethe&rsqu o\;)\, portraiture (e.g. &lsquo\;Beaver\, Real Estate\, John Astor&rsquo\;) \, and still-life (e.g. &lsquo\;Red Shield Shelf&rsquo\;)\, together they a mplify Cannon&rsquo\;s alchemical approach to making and his promiscuous en gagement with materials: which has included gold leaf\, holographic foil\, epoxy\, urethane foam\, putty\, plexiglas\, and oil paint among other pigme nts.
\n \;
\nEqually promiscuous in their referents and depar ture points Cannon&rsquo\;s works invoke an unruly art history\, one that s uggests simultaneously the improvised languages of Joan Mitchell or Cy Twom bly\, the folk imagination of Thornton Dial\, and the visionary architectur al propositions of Hermann Finsterlin\, all filtered through a kind of fin-de-siè\;cle &lsquo\;atmosphere&rsquo\; &ndash\; think Huysma ns&rsquo\; &lsquo\;Against Nature&rsquo\;: a seemingly anachronistic &lsquo \;tone&rsquo\; that pervades all of Cannon&rsquo\;s work\, establishing an unsettling &lsquo\;mood&rsquo\; that seems highly apposite for our current uncertain times.
\n \;
\nAndrew Cannon (b. 1988) lives and wo rks in New York. He received an MFA from Columbia University in 2017\, and a BA from UCLA in 2010. His work was the subject of a solo exhibition at th e Santa Monica Museum of Art in 2014\, and has been included in numerous gr oup exhibitions in California and New York. \;  \;

White Columns is pleased to present a second ex hibition of historical works by Ben Morea. The exhibition consists of spray -painted works on paper produced between 1990 and 1992\, made after Morea&r squo\;s 25-year self- imposed exile from both the art world and art making.
\n
\nIn 2016\, White Columns presented a widely acclaimed exhibi tion of Morea&rsquo\;s surviving &lsquo\;Modern Primitive&rsquo\; abstract paintings produced between 1964 and 1965 (prior to his co-founding of the n ow legendary collectives &lsquo\;Black Mask&rsquo\; and &lsquo\;Up Against The Wall Motherfuckers&rsquo\;\, the latter group once described as a &ldqu o\;street gang with analysis.&rdquo\;)
\n
\nMorea'\;s approach to art in the early 1960s was informed by Aldo Tambellini (who he describe s as a &lsquo\;mentor&rsquo\;)\, the Abstract Expressionists\, the Russian Suprematists\, ancient art\, and spiritual and mythological writers such as Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell. Morea eventually abandoned art-making\, tur ning his back on the visual art world by 1966. Writing about this time\, Mo rea has stated: &ldquo\;I respected the Abstract Expressionists\, but I rea lly hated Pop Art. ... I later quit painting\, partially out of disgust wit h that whole world.&rdquo\;
\n
\nShortly after he abandoned art-m aking Morea founded\, with poet Dan Georgakas\, the group &lsquo\;Black Mas k&rsquo\;\, publishing a broadside that declared that art should be "\; an integral part of life\, as in primitive society\, and not an appendage t o wealth."\; In May 1968\, &lsquo\;Black Mask&rsquo\; evolved into &lsq uo\;Up Against The Wall Motherfuckers&rsquo\;\, an activist group that shap ed New York&rsquo\;s counter culture of the late 1960s and who were charact erized by Abbie Hoffman as &ldquo\;The middle-class nightmare ... an anti-m edia media phenomenon.&rdquo\;
\n
\nAfter a two decade exile from the art world Morea returned to art making around 1990. Using only spray p aint and paper\, between 1990 and 1992 Morea made dozens of works that were informed by his persistent interest in the Russian Suprematists and the It alian Futurists. Using stencils and other forms of masking\, alongside free -drawing Morea&rsquo\;s spray-painted works of the early 1990s share formal characteristics with the work of artists as different as John Latham\, Mar tin Barré\, and Christopher Wool whilst amplifying the counter-cultural im pulses that have long driven his art\, writing and political work. On the o ccasion of a 2015 exhibition of his spray-painted works it was suggested th at Morea&rsquo\;s return to art was:
\n
\n&ldquo\;.. . inspired by the spiritual as much as intellectual. Picking up wh ere he left off in the mid-&lsquo\;60&rsquo\;s Morea utilized spray paint a s his primary medium to make a series of works on paper that he considers a rebirth and a continuation of his artistic explorations. The work asks the viewer to consider that there are no conclusions artistically or philosoph ically\, but rather [only] a series of loose answers to immediacy.&rdquo\;
\n
\nIn addition to the 2016 White Columns exhibition\, Ben Morea&rsquo\;s archives and artwork have recently been the subject of a se ries of research-driven publications and exhibitions curated by archivist J ohan Kugelberg for his Boo-Hooray space and imprint\, including: the exhibi tion and publication &lsquo\;Opposition: Black Mask\, Ben Morea\, and U.A.W .M.F&rsquo\; (Boo-Hooray\, 2014)\; &lsquo\;The Line Between: Ben Morea Pain tings of the Early 90&rsquo\;s&rsquo\; (Boo- Hooray/Envoy\, 33 Orchard Stre et\, 2015)\; and &lsquo\;Unseen 50 Years\, Paintings By Ben Morea 1964-65&r squo\; (Boo- Hooray\, 2014). To learn more about these projects and Boo-Hoo ray&rsquo\;s archival projects visit: www.boo- hooray.com. Morea&rsquo\;s & lsquo\;Modern Primitive&rsquo\; paintings were included in the exhibition & lsquo\;All Summer In A Day&rsquo\; (Unclebrother\, Hancock\, New York\, 201 6)\; and his work was included in the groundbreaking survey exhibition &lsq uo\;Inventing Downtown&rsquo\; at the Grey Art Gallery\, New York (2017).&n bsp\;
\n
\nWe would like to thank Ben Morea for his enthusiasm ab out this exhibition\; and acknowledge Johan Kugelberg&rsquo\;s pioneering a nd ongoing support of Ben Morea&rsquo\;s art\, archives and ideas. \;\n

White Columns is pleased to present a solo exhi bition by the New York-based artist Rebecca \;Watson \;Horn. The ex hibition consists of six recent paintings that \;Watson \;Horn  \;describes as &ldquo\;psycho-spiritual.&rdquo\; She sees painting as a mea ns to explore spirituality\, the mind\, the senses\, and to &ldquo\;re-imag ine an other self.&rdquo\; \;Watson \;Horn \;complicates the sp ace of her paintings by building up a surface over time and mixing in pumic e and sand. The text in her paintings is taken from a reading on Zen and 12 step recovery\, a Jewish proverb\, and the teaching of the Theravada Buddh ists\, Thanissara\, Kittisaro\, and Ajahn Sucitto.

\n&lsquo\;The Sound of White Columns&rsquo\; (TSoWC) releases recordings by artist-musicians and artist-performers. To d ate some fifteen records - in both 7&rdquo\; and 12&rdquo\; vinyl formats & ndash\; have been released.
\n \;
\nThe first release in 2006 was by the San Francisco-based group Tussle\, who wrote a specially commis sioned song entitled &lsquo\;White Columns&rsquo\;\, which became a &ldquo\ ;theme tune&rdquo\;\, of sorts\, for the gallery. Since then TSoWC has rele ased new and archival recordings by artist-musicians-performers including: Martin Creed\, Wild Billy Childish &\; The Musicians of the British Empi re\, Julianna Barwick and Ikue Mori\, Eric Duncan and Thomas Bullock (aka & lsquo\;Rub N Tug&rsquo\;)\, Malcolm Mooney\, Kim Gordon\, David van Tieghem \, Meredith Monk\, Karl Holmqvist\, David Robbins\, Emily Sundblad &\; M att Sweeney\, Richard Hell and Robert Quine\, and B. Wurtz. The next releas e &ndash\; a live recording of Christopher Knowles reading his poetry &ndas h\; is forthcoming this December.
\n \;
\nNamed for the legen dary 1970s soul and disco label &lsquo\;The Sound of Philadelphia&rsquo\;\, TSoWC seeks to gently re-animate a key aspect of White Columns&rsquo\; his tory\, i.e. the gallery&rsquo\;s connection to the downtown New York art an d music scenes of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Under the directorship of Josh Baer White Columns hosted two legendary music festivals at the galler y: 1979&rsquo\;s &lsquo\;Noise Fest&rsquo\; (organized by Thurston Moore) a nd 1983&rsquo\;s &lsquo\;Speed Trails&rsquo\;\, in addition to Kim Gordon a nd Barbara Ess&rsquo\;s 1981 curated exhibition of art by artist-musicians\ , among other related projects. (Josh Baer would later go on to cofound wit h Glenn Branca the groundbreaking Neutral Records\, which released seminal recordings by Jack Goldstein\, Sonic Youth and Swans\, among others.)
\n \;
\nThe Sound of White Columns exhibition will include example s of all the recordings released to date as well as a listening station whe re visitors can play the records. A select number of titles will also be av ailable to purchase from the gallery.
\n \;
\nThe launch date (and related event) for Christopher Knowles&rsquo\; forthcoming live recor ding will be announced later.

\n\n


\nA Day in New York\, 2 017\, is the 5th annual photo exhibition at Gallery Max New York\, SoHo\, f eaturing scenic\, accidental\, humorous\, and illusive moments of everyday life captured by three photographers. In addition to regular artists Max Fu jishima and Kazuko Hyakuda\, invited this year is Izu Watanabe who mainly s hows 3D-looking images and photo-based sculptures.

\n\n

Max Fujishima captures and expresses the relentless flow of tim e\, and the moments that exist in the interface between the photographer an d the subject on the other side of the lens. &ldquo\;Wish You Were Here\,&r dquo\; a series of the Empire State Building\, constitutes Fujishima&rsquo\ ;s life work that has been focused on from another high-rise over the cours e of 20 years\, expressing the profound relationship formed in precious mom ents between the photographer and his subject.

\n\n

K azuko Hyakuda exhibits a series of Orchard Street taken in 2003\, asking the viewer how the Street 15 years ago is different from the present . She\, on the other hand\, makes photo-based intaglio work in which repres entation of the depths of one'\;s consciousness is pursued through water surfaces and other scenes of the City that show various abstract patterns created by natural phenomena such as time\, light\, wind\, and so on.

\n\n

Izu Watanabe\, who is also a sculptor\, keep s photographing New York'\;s everyday life using a 360°\; panoramic c amera\, where he has discovered several elements that were not visible at t he time of shooting. By constructing them in three dimensions\, he tries to present a new perspective to the audience.

Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition New Vision/ New Generation. Pairing we ll-known masters of photography with two young gallery artists who have ins pired them\, this exhibition will highlight the continuing influence of the past on the present.

\n\n

L&aac ute\;szló\; Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946) was the first instructor to introduce experimental photography to the Bauhaus\, and later in Chicag o at the Illinois Institute of Technology. His &ldquo\;New Vision&rdquo\; s pread widely throughout the post World War II pedagogical network and conti nues to the present. Moholy&rsquo\;s photograms were created by placing div erse materials directly on photographic paper\, which was then exposed and fixed to create unique\, mysterious and evocative compositions. Several rar e photograms from the 1920s will be included in our show.

\n\n

Alejandra Laviada (b.1980)\, is bas ed in Mexico. In her Geometry of Space series she creates deep dar k spaces that resemble the structure and mystery of Moholy&rsquo\;s photogr ams. Here\, she uses discarded building materials that are multiply exposed in camera to form powerful abstract compositions. She embraces Moholy&rsqu o\;s credo\, as expressed in his 1923 publication Painting Photography Film\, that each work must find its medium- in this case abstract phot ography.

\n\n

Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992) transformed the outlook of photography in Europe beginning in the 1970s\, pioneering the use of color and merging document and concept in diverse bodies of work ranging from his Atlante series to Kodachrome. Working primarily in Italy\, and often collaborating with artists in other media\, until recent years\, Ghirri has not been well-know n in the United States. His work has entered the canon along with such earl y color practitioners as Eggleston and Stephen Shore. We will exhibit sever al vintage prints from the 1970s that anticipate the urban geometry and wit of Andrea Grü\;tzner.


\n\n

East Ge rman born Andrea Grü\;tzner (b.1984)\, expresses herse lf through architectural subjects &ndash\; first in her Erbgericht (guest house) series\, and as photographer in residence in Koblenz\, with das Eck (the corner). Koblenz was severely damaged during World Wa r II\, thus presenting a great opportunity for the juxtaposition of old and new in its architecture and materials. The irony\, humor\, optimism and ke en graphic sense that Ghirri demonstrated is clearly exemplified in Grü \;tzner&rsquo\;s project.

\n\n

Laviada i s currently featured on the cover of the November/December issue of Pho tograph Magazine and has exhibited widely in the United States and els ewhere. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from the School of Visual Arts. Grü\;tzner completed her BA (honor s) at HTWG Konstanz and her MA at FH Bielefeld. She was recently the winner of the ING Unseen Talent Award (Jury Prize)\, 2017. A full CV of each is f eatured on our website: saulgallery.com.

Peter Blum Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition Three Paintings by Alex Katz\, at our new downtown location at 176 Grand Street\, New York. There will be an opening reception on Thursday \, November 16\, from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition runs through January 13\, 2018.

\n\n

Alex Katz&rsquo\;s cool\, rep resentational\, and reductive style has set him apart as one of the most in fluential painters working in America today. This exhibition will highlight three significant large scale paintings by Katz from 1972\, 1990\, and 199 3.

\n\n

Blue Umbrella #2\, 1972\, oil on canvas\, 96 x 144 inches (243.8 x 365.8 cm)

\ n\n

Alex Katz&rsquo\;s wife Ada has long be en his best known model. In this work\, generally considered one of his mos t important paintings\, the subject is alone in a black coat and a colorful scarf\, the head and umbrella nearly covering the whole canvas. She is sta nding in the rain\, staring into the distance&mdash\;stoic and elegant. The rain drops cut across the surface diagonally\, creating a pattern evenly d ispersed throughout the painting.

\n\n

< strong>Black Brook 11\, 1990\, oil on linen\, 108 x 144 i nches (274.3 x 365.8 cm)

\n\n

A deep dar k monochromatic space fills the surface of the painting. A collection of wh ite brushstrokes are painted on the bottom half of the canvas\, developing into a powerful motion that represents the rushing water in a small stream.

\n\n

Gold and Black II \, 1993\, oil on canvas\, 80 x 166 inches (203.2 x 421.6 cm)

\n \n

In this painting a grouping of trees is silhouetted against a monochromatic field of saturated golden color. Green leaves are minimally dispersed among the bare branches on the top third of the picture plane. The tops and the bottoms of the trees extend past the ed ges of the canvas leaving the forms free floating and segmented throughout the composition. Both the foreground and background of this work is compose d with a series of broad and deliberate gestures&mdash\;describing the land scape with the most reduced means.

\n\n

Alex Katz was born in Queens\, NY in 1927 and lives and wo rks in New York. Katz graduated in 1949 from the Cooper Union in New York. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally\, and can be fou nd in over 100 public collections worldwide.

Garth Greenan Gallery is pleas ed to announce Victoria Gitman: Taktisch\, an exhibition of painti ngs and drawings at 545 West 20th Street. Opening on January 11\, 2018\, th e exhibition is the artist&rsquo\;s first since her recent retrospective at the Pé\;rez Art Museum Miami. Eight of Gitman&rsquo\;s astonishingly naturalistic paintings will be on view\, in addition to a selection of dra wings\, all created between 2016 and 2017.

\n\n

The exhibition focuses on Gitman&rsquo\;s recent paintings&mdash\;m eticulously rendered abstractions based on the supple fur surfaces of vinta ge handbags. Gitman works in oils\, hair by hair\, creating surfaces that a re delicately painted from close\, direct observation. Many of the painting s feature abstract patterns evocative of early and mid-twentieth-century st ylistic traditions. Evoking modernist compositional techniques\, Gitman&rsq uo\;s new works are resolutely frontal\, their imagery extending edge-to-ed ge. Each composition is tightly cropped\, further intensifying both the hap tic quality and the inherent sensuousness of the artist&rsquo\;s chosen sub jects.

\n\n

The title of the exhibition is a neologism introduced by Vienna School art historian Aloï\;s Riegl to describe a kind of close-up perception or &ldquo\;visual touching.&rdquo \; Taktisch can at once signify &ldquo\;tactile\,&rdquo\; &ldquo\; tangible\,&rdquo\; &ldquo\;palpable\,&rdquo\; or &ldquo\;textural\,&rdquo\; as well as &ldquo\;tactical.&rdquo\; It implies an intimate exchange with art objects\, an intermingling of the experiences of seeing\, feeling\, and knowing through sensory perception.

\n\n

Born in Buenos Aires\, Argentina\, in 1972\, Victoria Gitman immigrated t o the United States in 1987. In 1996\, she graduated from Florida Internati onal University with a BFA in painting. She has had solo-exhibitions at Dan iel Weinberg Gallery (2004\, 2006\, 2009\, Los Angeles)\, David Nolan Galle ry (2006\, 2011\, New York)\, and Tomio Koyama Gallery (2014\, Tokyo). In 2 005\, the Bass Museum of Art\, Miami\, mounted On Display\, Gitman&rsquo\;s first museum exhibition. Three years later\, Looking Closely\, a solo exhibition of paintings and drawings\, opened at the Las Vegas Art Mus eum.

\n\n

Gitman&rsquo\;s work is featur ed in the collections of many museums\, including the Columbus Museum of Ar t\, Ohio\; the Detroit Institute of Arts\; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art\; the Museum of Contemporary Art\, San Diego\; the Museum of Modern Ar t\; the Pé\;rez Art Museum Miami\; and the Whitney Museum of American Art\, New York.

\n\n

Garth Greenan Gall ery is pleased to represent Victoria Gitman.

\n\n

Victoria Gitman: Taktisch will be on view at Garth Green an Gallery\, 545 West 20th Street (between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues)\, th rough Saturday\, February 17\, 2018. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sa turday\, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For more information\, please contact the gallery at (212) 929-1351\, or email info@garthgreenan.com.

Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to annou nce &ldquo\;Color Separation\,&rdquo\; a group exhibition featuring works b y James Nares\, Raymond Saá\; and Peter Mona ghan. \; On view December 1st\, 2017 through February 3rd\, 20 18\, the show will open with a public reception on December 1st\, 5-7pm\, t o coincide with the Holiday Stroll in New Canaan.  \;

\n\n

About the artists:

\n\n

Widely recognized for expanding the boundaries of different media\, James Nares has had an ill ustrious artistic career spanning five decades. \; \; The show will feature some of Nares&rsquo\; most emblematic work\, large-scale brushstro kes that swirl and twist across a long surface.  \;These are typically created by the artist harnessing himself horizontally from the ceiling\, br ush in hand\, allowing for the swinging movement of his body to create the painterly gestures. \; With the use of bespoke oversized paint brushes\ , Nares&rsquo\; calligraphy-style strokes come in bright colors in a singul ar palette. \; \; The subject of many solo exhibitions including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the National Gallery of Art in D.C.\, Nares has works in prominent museums and private collections aro und the world. The Milwaukee Art Museum will be curating a major retrospect ive for the artist in 2019. \;

\n\n

A native from Ireland\, Peter Monaghan had his first solo show in Dublin in 2002. \;  \; Since then he has garnered attention for his three-dimensional wall -mounted work and architectural installations. \; Monaghan uses dowels\ , wood\, plexi and other materials on wood or wall supports to create intri guing colorful constructions and serial assemblages. \; The works becom e activated as the viewer shifts his or her position\, with color interplay s and the illusion of movement delivering changes in their appearance.  \; An award recipient\, Monaghan has worked on numerous public commissions and architectural collaborations and has exhibited in Europe\, Asia and the U.S.

\n\n

Another artist in the show also works in assemblage\, thoug h resolving how they come together is a bit more unorthodox. \; Raymond Saá\;&rsquo\;s cut and collaged drawings are stitch ed together with the use of a sewing machine. \; The deconstructed elem ents are energized into brightly colored gouache\, or graphite and charcoal &ldquo\;postcards&rdquo\; and are re-organized into different forms and sp atial arrangements.  \; \;Saa was born in New Orleans and raised in Miami of Cuban parents and grandparents. \; This background becomes re levant in his work as he references cultural diasporas and newly-created en vironments.  \;Saá\; has made large commissioned murals and insta llations with these colorful montages\, including public commissions in New York.  \;He has had several solo and group exhibitions in the United S tates and is an award recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation and the Pol lock-Krasner Foundation.

A scene from a movie:

\n\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Beatrix is sprawled on the bathroom floor\, crying. Her tears are those of exhaustion\, of joy\, and of trauma. &ldquo \;She covers her mouth so B.B. won&rsquo\;t hear her crying and get worried or confused.&rdquo\;

\n\n

A long wall s eparates her from her child. On one side lays Beatrix\, consumed by an over flowing catharsis\; on the other sits her daughter\, B.B.\, blissfully watc hing the 1946 cartoon\, The Talking Magpies. Beatrix hopes for this wall to be a barrier\, holding back the crashing weight of consequence and emotion from her idle\, and seemingly unaffected\, child. &ldquo\;She washes her f ace in the sink\, when she&rsquo\;s presentable\, she walks out of the bath room\, jumps on the bed with her baby\, hugs her from behind as the two wat ch Saturday morning cartoons.&rdquo\;

\n\n

For the moment\, it appears that the mother has shielded her daughter fr om the abyss. Yet for all the care taken by Beatrix to muffle her own cries \, she only made more audible the jangle of the cartoon and its slapstick d ialogue. What will happen when\, months later\, she jumps into bed again to watch the weekend cartoons with B.B. and a rerun of The Talking Magpies pl ays? Will the opening melody take Beatrix back to her moment of collapse on the bathroom tiles? And what about B.B.? Will she remember her mother&rsqu o\;s stifled weeps through the barricade?

\n\n

As they cuddle side-by-side watching that same lively cartoon play o ut\, will they see it through new eyes? The animated violence now more real than caricature\; the conversation suddenly more biting than playful. What became of this sweet\, innocuous cartoon\, to make it so cruel and wrong?< /p>\n LOCATION:Foxy Production\,2 East Broadway\, 200 \nNew York\, NY 10038US SUMMARY:Mature Themes\, CINDY JI HYE KIM\, Kiki Kogelnik\, Brian Kokoska\, Bjarne Melgaard\, Chelsey Pettyjohn\, Erika Vogt\, Julia Wachtel END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTAMP:20180124T021545Z UID:459315 DTSTART:20180114T150000 DTEND:20180114T180000 LOCATION:Foxy Production\,2 East Broadway\, 200 \nNew York\, NY 10038US SUMMARY:Mature Themes END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTAMP:20180124T021545Z UID:459384 DTSTART:20171208T000000 DTEND:20180217T000000 DESCRIPTION:

< font color="#000080">To mark the 30 years\, the gallery artists were invite d to exhibit drawings and photographs embracing independent selections of a multiplicity of subject\, style and process.

\n\n

Drawing and Photograp hy are expansive concepts. In this exhibition\, interpretation of either me dium is not limited to a traditional sense as the drawn line made with a pe ncil\, pen\, or charcoal on white paper as in Stan Brodsky&rsquo\;s drawing \, titled Rear View\, 1968. \; James Little speaks of his brilli antly colored vertical geometric bands\, When Aaron Tied Ruth\, 2008 \, executed in multiple layers of oil and wax on canvas as a drawing. \ ; Rebecca Welz refers to her welded and twisted steel rods reflecting inter connectedness\, Lace Barnacle\, 2017 as a drawing and Philemona Will iamson says depicting the drawn line in her lithograph with graphite\, U ntitled\, allows insight to her process of painting. \; Ming Smith& rsquo\;s nostalgic narrative\, Roxbury Interior\, Boston\, MA.\, 197 8\; LeRoy Henderson&rsquo\;s portrait Carmen de Lavallade (Bedford Stuyvesant Festival\, 1985)\; Charles Martin\, Flight\, 2008 and Joh n Pinderhughes panoramic naturescape\, Splashing Water/Montauk\, 199 7\, reflect contemporary approaches with subject.

\n\n

&ldquo\;Stimulati ng while demanding years&rdquo\; is gallery owner June Kelly&rsquo\;s comme nt when speaking of the three decades that have brought her much gratificat ion.

\n\n

Herself vested with a richly diverse career in the art world\, June Kelly is especially pleased that pursuant to her initial mission in 1 987 that her gallery artists represent a broad\, diverse ethnic and interna tional spectrum and that their work would be placed in museum permanent col lections globally\; she has clearly succeeded in those unremitting objectiv es.

\n\n

In this 30th year alone\, for example\, her ethnic and gender diverse gallery artists continue to receive domestic and global attention - - World War I and American Art\, a traveling exhibition organized by the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and which included Debra Priestl y&rsquo\;s drawing\; Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist\, Smithson ian National Museum of The American Indian (a multi-venue retrospective)\; Philemona Williamson&rsquo\;s back-to-back retrospectives\, Metaphorical Narratives\, Montclair Art Museum and Converging Voices: Gender and Identity\, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill\; photograp her Ming Smith\, We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women 1965-85 \, Brooklyn Museum and John Pinderhughes\, Uptown\, Miriam and Ira D . Wallach Art Gallery\, Columbia University\; Julio Valdez\, Inter-American Development Bank\, Washington\, DC\; Rebecca Welz\, SciArt Center\, Easton \, PA\; Mark Alsterlind\, France\; Su-Li Hung\, Taiwan\; Su Kwak\, Korea\; Hanibal Srouji\, Lebanon\, and Nola Zirin\, China.

\n\n

Gallery artists whose work entered museum permanent collections in this milestone year incl ude Frances Hynes\, The Albany Institute of History and Art\; Sandra Lerner \, Gutman Gallery\, Harvard Graduate School of Education\; James Little\, C had\, Central Africa\; Sarah Plimpton\, The Beinecke Rare Book &\; Manus cript Library\, Yale University\; Debra Priestly\, The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts\; Joan Giordano\, Museum of Contemporary Art of Crete\, Kay W alkingStick\, The Newark Museum and The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts\; Phil emona Williamson\, Montclair Art Museum\, and Nola Zirin\, The Taoxichuang Art Museum of China Central Academy of Fine Art.

\n\n

Other highlights f or the year include The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts acquiring a masterpiec e by gallery artist Hughie Lee-Smith (1915-1999) titled Absence of Gaiet y\, ca. 1962\, oil on canvas\, 34 ¼\; x 50 ½\; inches for t heir permanent collection. \; It is a classic Lee-Smith that is hauntin g\, staying long in the mind&rsquo\;s eye.

\n\n

The University of Iowa\, the Board of Regents and the State of Iowa approved the naming of a new re sidence hall in honor of gallery artist Elizabeth Catlett (1915-2012)\, an alumna of the school. \; In 1940\, Elizabeth Catlett became one of the first three MFA graduates from the University of Iowa and was the first Afr ican American woman to receive the degree. \; She would become one of t he most important American sculptors and printmakers of the 20th century.

\n\n

Gallery artists Colin Chase received the Joan Mitchell Grant for Pai nting and Sculpture and Bruce Dorfman\, the Pollack-Krasner Foundation Indi vidual Grant. Claudia DeMonte\, received a Sol LeWitt Residency\, Spoleto\, Italy. \; The Metropolitan Transit Authority commission won by James L ittle continues in fabrication\, Paderborn\, Germany. \; Moe Brooker be gins the coveted GSA (General Services Department) Washington\, DC commissi on he won for a wall in the Philadelphia Convention Center.\n\n

&ldquo\ ;It has been an exciting journey\,&rdquo\; Kelly said. &ldquo\;Despite the ups and downs inherent in this demanding field\, I&rsquo\;m grateful to so many people for their contributions to the gallery&rsquo\;s achievements ov er the past three decades.

Opening Reception: Tuesday\, December 5\, 6&ndash\;8pm \;
\n
\n'\;Re-Re-positioning the Present'\; is an exhibitio n curated by past ISCP resident Hsiang-Ning Huang in ISCP&rsquo\;s Project Space\, featuring work by the contemporary Taiwanese artist known as &ldquo \;Shake.&rdquo\; The exhibition aims to address the complex political reali ty of Taiwan\, historically located on the boundaries of different empires.  \;
\n
\nDuring a half century of Japanese colonization f rom 1895-1945\, Taiwan served as a base for Japan\, and place to maneuver t o the south. After the end of World War II\, the exiled government from Chi na took over Taiwan. During the Cold War\, Taiwan became part of the fronti er for the US to fend off Communist powers. As neoliberalism has arisen\, t he empire assumes yet another new face. \;
\n
\nShake&rsq uo\;s work draws from a variety of sources such as historical archives\, po etry and personal memoirs\, and tries to reach identity\, territorial\, cul tural and institutional issues. '\;Re-Re-positioning the Present'\; f eatures a series of video installations collected under the title '\;The Subduction Zone\,'\; where Shake employs unique Taiwanese topography as a metaphor to represent the island&rsquo\;s geopolitical history and prese nt condition\, using a mesmerizing depiction of tectonic plates\, as well a s archives\, poems\, and military songs sung in schools. In An '\;Unsink able Aircraft Carrier\,'\; the main materials will be archives and perso nal writings from the post-WWII period to the Cold War period. The project aims to represent the conflicts and ruptures that occurred during the proce ss of redefining the imperial boundaries. In addition to presenting a compr ehensive picture of the historical and legal context with the archives\, it also examines life experiences on the island of Taiwan through personal wr itings as well as how these experiences have formed and changed being conta ined and excluded by the Empire. \;
\n
\nCinematic writin g (é\;criture ciné\;matographique)\, is the initial creative ap proach that inspired Shake&rsquo\;s work. Her creation tries to address myt hic\, identity\, territorial\, cultural and institutional issues. Therefore \, in her work\, she often mixes heterogeneous elements\, or adopts a kind of translated context\, and responds to or reroutes the rigid system or the value and cognition of cultural symbols which have been shaped by history\ , society\, mass media and individuals. Meanwhile\, so as to resist rigid f ilm language\, in addition to filming as the only manner\, she also tries t o work with other mediums and expressive formats to expand beyond instituti onal film methods of representation. \;
\n
\nHsiang-Ning Huang (born 1982\, Taipei) is a curator and a member of tamtamART Taipei\, and currently works at MoCA Taipei. Her recent curatorial projects include '\;Rosa&rsquo\;s Wound\,'\; MoCA Taipei\, 2017\; '\;The Moment tha t Comes is about to Go\,'\; MoCA Taipei\, 2016\; '\;Invading Heteroto pia\,'\; a two-night projection in a historical area facing the crisis o f urban renovation\; and '\;It&rsquo\;s not a REAL film\,'\; 2014. Hu ang&rsquo\;s work focuses on the intersection of aesthetics and politics in contemporary art\; in other words\, the engagement of art in the political realm\, providing a critical perspective on social realities and proposing an imagination towards a better future. Huang was a resident at ISCP in 20 16. \;
\n
\nThis program is supported\, in part\, by New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Counc il\; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature\; Ministry of Culture\, Republ ic of China (Taiwan)\; and Taipei Cultural Center in New York. \;
\n
\nThis event is free and open to the public.

The Robin Rice Gallery is pleased to present a photographic exhibition by Mindaugas Gabrenas. The opening reception will be held on Wed nesday\, January 17th from 6pm to 8pm. The show will run through February 2 5th.

\n\n

In this exhibition\, Mindaugas Gabrenas invites us to reflec t on the poetics of place through his lyrical and surrealist imagery. His h and-printed silver gelatin prints reveal abandoned regions\, wild coasts an d strange territories from Lithuania to Scotland to America. As a scientifi c innovator\, he uses unique techniques and unconventional materials in ord er to create his whimsical\, dream photos.

\n\n

In &ldquo\;Spinning Th e Wheel&rdquo\;\, stars trace the sky in a curved motion and meet the water below creating a sense of the infinite. \; As Gabrenas explores and ca ptures landscapes through very long exposures\, he actually meditates and r eflects on the world around him encouraging his viewers to imagine themselv es within the landscapes and dream with him.

\n\n

In another image &ld quo\;Dream About an Empty House&rdquo\;\, that was taken in Lithuania\, we see a young girl from behind in a red polka dotted dress as she faces an ab andoned home. Using his handmade camera he constructed by merging two camer as&mdash\;a Kiev 88 and a Kodak Duaflex II. The viewfinder of the Duaflex s erves as an additional filter on the lens of the Kiev 88\, which is fixed t o its body with several macro rings. Before shooting the film\, he wraps it in black rye bread and waits several days for the mold to grow onto the fi lm. The combination of these two techniques creates a sense of motion aroun d the central figure.

\n\n

&ldquo\;Alternatives&rdquo\;\, our invitati onal image\, pulls us into Gabrenas&rsquo\; world. The focused close-up and abstracted view of train tracks distorts a familiar shape into a strange a nd unusual form. The tracks lead you in the distance\, a blurry city of New York. The ironic lack of human life in New York City conveys a mystifying sense of place.

\n\n

In &ldquo\;Something With a Head&rdquo\;\, we&rsq uo\;re taken to the Lithuanian seaside where silhouetted figures stand on s and dunes watching the central figure jumping off into the distance. This i mage is part of his &ldquo\;Dreamscapes&rdquo\;\; a series of &ldq uo\;dream projections&rdquo\; where the artist uses a light-leaking camera called Kiev 88 and expired Svema 64 film to give the photography a dusty an d blurry quality.

\n\n

Born in Lithuania\, he has been influenced by a myriad of artists&rsquo\; techniques including the graceful elegance of Ma sao Yamamoto and the intricate compositions of Michael Kenna. However\, Hen ri Cartier Bresson has perhaps had the greatest influence on Gabrenas&rsquo \; photographic process and the patience it entails.

\n\n

Gabrenas has won numerous awards for his photography\, including Black &\; White Mag azine Portfolio Contest Winner\, Audience Award Winner in SoHo Photo Galler y\, Photo Democracy Award Winner\, Foto filmic'\;13 Portfolio Award Winn er\, Tera Bella Media'\;13 2nd Place Winner. He has also been published in various publications including '\;Black &\; White Magazine'\;\, &lsquo\;L&rsquo\;Oeil de la Photographie'\;\, &lsquo\;Adore Noir Magazi ne&rsquo\;\, &rsquo\;PH Magazine&rsquo\;\, '\;Foto blur'\;\, &lsquo\; Dodho Magazine&rsquo\;\, &rsquo\;Dahse'\;\, '\;Shots'\;\, &lsquo\; DOC!&rsquo\;\, &lsquo\;Monovisions&rsquo\;\, and &lsquo\;Klassik Magazine&r squo\;.

ClampArt is pleased to announc e &ldquo\;Lori Nix/Kathleen Gerber | Empire.&rdquo\; Though Nix and Gerber have been working collaboratively for over sixteen years\, this is the firs t exhibition at ClampArt to credit both artists equally for their imagery.< /p>\n\n

From 2005-2013 Nix and Gerber worke d meticulously on their series entitled &ldquo\;The City\,&rdquo\; which la rgely pictured apocalyptic interiors. For their new work they have moved &l dquo\;outdoors&rdquo\; depicting what remains of extensive landscapes and c ityscapes after mysterious\, unexplained catastrophic events. They write:\n\n

\n

Landscapes are more th an a visual record of an environment. They also capture the emotional\, som etimes spiritual\, essence of a place. &lsquo\;Empire&rsquo\; presents a wo rld transformed by climate uncertainty and a shifting social order as it st umbles towards a new kind of frontier. These places are eerily beautiful bu t also unsettling in their stillness and silence. Long ago man entered the landscape and forced nature to his will. Once grand and emblematic of stren gth and prosperity\, these landscapes now appear abused and in decay\, and it is uncertain how they will continue to (d)evolve.

\n
\n\n

In order to create their disastrous scenar ios\, Nix and Gerber painstakingly construct intricate dioramas in their Br ooklyn studio which are then carefully lighted and photographed. The obsess ive process requires patience and precision and is particularly slow-going\ , with only a few artworks produced each year. The nine large-scale photogr aphic prints in this exhibition represent four years of work.

\n\n

Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber are both originally from the American Midwest. Their miniature fake landscapes and interiors r eflect a love of science fiction and dystopian entertainment (think &ldquo\ ;Blade Runner\,&rdquo\; &ldquo\;Planet of the Apes\,&rdquo\; &ldquo\;Logan& rsquo\;s Run&rdquo\;)\, an appreciation for great architecture\, and an aff inity with the Sublime painters of the Hudson River School. Their images of faux landscapes and gritty urban interiors have gained wide acclaim in bot h the U.S. and Europe\, and Nix is a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow in photography. Their work is represented in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum\, Washington\, DC\; Museum of Fine Arts\, Houston\, Tex as\; George Eastman House\, Rochester\, New York\; Worcester Art Museum\, W orcester\, Massachusetts\; Spencer Museum of Art\, University of Kansas\, L awrence\, Kansas\; Harvard Business School\, Harvard University\, Cambridge \, Massachusetts\; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art\, Overland Park\, Kans as\; Middlebury College Museum of Art\, Middlebury\, Vermont\; El Paso Muse um of Art\, El Paso\, Texas\; deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum\, Lincoln \, Massachusetts\; Girls&rsquo\; Club Collection\, Fort Lauderdale\, Florid a\; Henry Art Gallery\, University of Washington\, Seattle\, Washington\; U niversity of Maine Museum of Art\, Bangor\, Maine\; Chase Manhattan Bank\, New York City\; Progressive Insurance\, Cleveland\, Ohio\; Dow Jones &\; Company\, New York City\; Fidelity Insurance\, Chicago\, Illinois\; Wellin gton Management\, Boston\, Massachusetts\; Microsoft\, Seattle\, Washington \; and the HBC Global Art Collection\, New York City\; among many others.\n LOCATION:ClampArt\,247 West 29th Street Ground Floor\nNew York\, NY 10001U S SUMMARY:Empire\, Kathleen Gerber\, Lori Nix END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTAMP:20180124T021545Z UID:459605 DTSTART:20171130T180000 DTEND:20171130T200000 LOCATION:ClampArt\,247 West 29th Street Ground Floor\nNew York\, NY 10001U S SUMMARY:Empire END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTAMP:20180124T021545Z UID:459608 DTSTART:20171209T000000 DTEND:20180128T000000 DESCRIPTION:

Jeff Bailey Gallery is pleased to present Transcendent Functionalism\, an exhibition fea turing designers and artists who take design as a point of departure\, appr opriating and personalizing the forms of furniture\, garments\, graphics\, and other useful things. \;

\n\n

As objects familiarize into possessions or recede into ciphers\, finding new f unctions or forgetting their original ones\, they come to represent a peopl e\, place\, and time. Placed in the context of Shaker production an unfoldi ng of opposites emerges: anonymous\, individual\, communal\, hi-tech and ha ndmade. Forms and materials get recycled\, become modern\, moody\, forthcom ing\, utilitarian or enigmatic. These are objects along the travel to perfe ction\, that tell us who and what we are.

Judith Henry'\;s Casting Ca ll is comprised of 300 small sculptures made from salvaged detritus (otherw ise destined for the landfill). Resembling latter-day Hopi Kachina Figures\ , they assume peculiar urban ethno-graphic connections\, perhaps as if futu re archaeologists discovered a submerged trove of mysterious Aboriginal fig urines circa early 21st Century Brooklyn. When Henry began to create these works\, it was at a difficult moment in her life that terminated with the l oss of a family member. She had not made sculpture during her long artistic practice. But looking around her studio\, she was drawn to the piles of ju nk and refuse which needed to be tossed in the garbage and she began making objects that almost willfully\, became humanoid. Paper clips\, thread\, tw ine\, dried up paint tubes\, hardened brushes\, sequins\; anything and ever ything became body parts. She gathered more detritus from her kitchen\, bat hroom\, and corners of her pantry. Even outside\, she became a gleaner of j unk. Hundreds of characters evolved into a small crowd\, then a larger one\ , and finally a kind of community. A casting call is usually many trying fo r few parts. This Casting Call became the opposite. All in.

\n\n

 \;BravinLee exhibited Judith Henry&rsquo\;s p hotographic series Girls Girls Girls\, The Artist is Hiding\, and Me As Her in 2015. Each series used a mask in some form as a way to obscure the arti st&rsquo\;s identity - at the same time as revealing much about her. Anonym ity becomes Henry&rsquo\;s source of freedom. Casting Call\, similarly\, al lows her to continue to explore her personal identity by creating a cast of characters from her everyday journeys. \;

\n\n

Judith Henry has recently exhibited her work at The National Ar ts Club\, NYC and The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. Carol Kino profiled her in an article called The Masks We Wear on the occasion of Judith&rsquo \;s first solo show with BravinLee. Henry was also Interviewed by Judith Es calona for Independent Sources\, CUNY TV in October of 2014. Judith Henry d esigned Crumpled Paper Stationary as part of Wooster Enterprises (1976&ndas h\;79)\, a collaborative\, conceptual enterprise she began with artist Jaim e Davidovich. Using their own original designs and additional prototypes by George Maciunas\, Davidovich and Henry sold small paper products&mdash\;gr eeting cards\, writing pads\, confetti\, and other paper goods&mdash\;to la rge and small stores throughout the United States. Their intent was to brin g conceptual art into a truly commercial arena. After Wooster Enterprises e nded\, The Museum of Modern Art continued to produce Henry&rsquo\;s crumple d paper stationary\, and for years it was one of their best selling items. For over three decades\, Henry traversed the streets of New York City secre tly photographing and eavesdropping on the people she encountered\, resulti ng in her Overheard Book Series published by Universe/Rizzoli (2000-2002). The series consists of four books: Overheard at the Museum\, Overheard at t he Bookstore\, Overheard While Shopping and Overheard in Love. In 2006 Atri a published Overheard in America\; New York\, Los Angeles\, Chicago and Mia mi.  \; \;

When the subway i s late\, or commuter traffic is ridiculous because it'\;s raining\, or s omeone had the nerve to write a snarky comment on your post. Does it bother you a little bit\, not at all or a lot? Each dot is a day\, and you might encounter one or maybe a handful of small stress in your daily inventory\, color-coded and sized by the amount of stress it caused. \;The constant data collection on our lives\, from iPhone usage to subway card swipes\,&n bsp\;transforms into portraiture through Frick&lsquo\;s \;text and data -based art.

\nRuth Greene&rsquo\;s &ldquo\;bo oks&rdquo\; are an ongoing conceptual series that are seductively painted o n approximately 9 x 6 x ½\; inch plywood. The &ldquo\;cover&rdquo\; a nd &ldquo\;spine&rdquo\; are sealed with white gesso. Original titles are i nscribed with pen or twig and permanent ink. Although there is a strong aes thetic component\, ultimately the &ldquo\;books&rdquo\; are about the subje ct matters Greene is primarily interested in\; philosophy\, mathematics and humor\, metaphysics\, set theory\, and culture\, as well as abstractions i n physics. The seemingly fading gestures of the written text leave an open- ended dialogue with the viewer and the materials presented.
\n
\n Meg Hitchcock\, inspired by the loaded nature of spiritual texts\, and her own lifelong relationship with spirituality\, cuts her mat erial from sacred texts such as the Bible\, the Torah or the Bhagavad Gita. In 2015\, Hitchcock made a pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash\, a holy mountain in western Tibet. The works in this exhibition are a selection from her series 10\,000 Mantras\, an exploration of the myriad ways in which huma nity searches for meaning and truth while making a commentary on self-abneg ation and the desire for transcendence\, questioning the very nature of tra nscendence itself.
\n
\nEmerging in the 1980s\, Jenny Hol zer is known for her projections\, which took advantage of what wa s new technology at the time. Her 1982 work in New York&rsquo\;s Times Squa re used LED to broadcast her messages to a wide audience. Recurring themes in her work are tribulations of modern life\, as well as issues of religion and gender. Using direct language\, and often juxtaposing shocking phrases \, she forces the public to confront societal issues.
\n
\nMaria Park
is known for her stenciled reverse painting practice.  \;Imprint 1 displays both capital and lowercase alphabet usin g the \;OCR-A \;font\, which \;arose in the ea rly days of computer optical character recognition when there was a need fo r \;a font that could be recognized by both computers and humans. Each letter is reverse painted in different shades of black mimicking the matter of factness \;of an alphabet chart. This\, combined with the shift in scale\, plays on the recognizability of the font whose usage remains widesp read in the encoding of checks\, another technology destined for obsolescen ce.
\n
\nWith an industrial edge\, Richard Thatcher \ ;draws inspiration from everyday observation and objects designed for functionality. Often you are not certain if the item he has installed o n the wall is a work of art or perhaps an electrical panel or security devi ce. The artist employs metals\, hand finished to create seductive surfaces that often hold or obscure hidden materials and agendas behind polished pla tes or in beautiful boxes. In his \;The Best of . . . series included in this exhibition\, Thatcher plays with the position of Artfo rum Magazine as an appealing container of slick advertisements and pro nouncements of the very best of the year&rsquo\;s art production. The magaz ine is screwed down and sealed away in a handsome industrial package\, rend ering the text unreadable. Thatcher offers up in place of the magazine as a n announcer of the flavor of the moment\, an art vessel of language as coll ective memory or cultural history\, allowing the viewer to draw his or her own conclusions of worth.
\n
\nMichael Waugh is known for intricate\, representational drawings formed from minuscule handw ritten words\, a practice known as micrography. Waugh transcribes texts&mda sh\;such as government commissions and theoretical books about power and ca pitalism&mdash\;into portraits and landscapes. Balancing the Report (FC IR\, part 10) is drawn with text from the Financial Crisis Inquiry Report\, issued in 2011. The text is specifically from the "\;Dis senting Views"\; section. To Waugh\, the selection of texts and images and the relationship between the two are the conceptual heart of the work. &ldquo\;These are worlds made of words that draw upon a historical quest fo r knowledge and for political progress&mdash\;a quest often at odds with so cial reality\,&rdquo\; he explains.
\n
\nRelying heavily on the a ccidental significance of found objects and texts\, Daniel Weiner&# 39\;s assemblages draw out emotion and meaning that is just beneat h the surface of the materials. He attempts to make each piece operate on t he level of visual beauty\, and on another level: triggering a self-reflexi ve act of discovery or interpretation\, functioning as a diagram of revelat ion. With layering and a willful rereading of dormant information\, he nail s together literal and figurative levels of understanding to show that any and all inquiry leads back to the self.

Nancy Margolis Gallery is plea sed to announce I Dare! | Dare I?\, a group exhibition featuring f our gallery artists: Anne Canfield\, Gregory Hayes\, Aubrey Levinthal\, and Melodie Provenzano. The show will be on view January 11th through February 10th\, 2018\, with an opening reception on Thursday\, January 11th from 6p m until 8pm.

\n\n

Many artists think abo ut trying something radically new\, but hesitate. This exhibition dared fou r artists who have each mastered artistic methods and processes to try some thing artistically different\, to attempt an unfamiliar technique or a new skill. What will be the outcomes of their risk-taking? Will the results be disappointing\, or might they lead to the discovery of new advances in thei r work? The four artists participating in I Dare! | Dare I? have c reated a small number of original paintings that reflect experimental think ing and a new process or theme\, whether through working on a larger scale\ , changing a tried-and-true process\, tackling a difficult color\, or revis iting an old project with fresh eyes. How have these artistic risks affecte d each artist&rsquo\;s thinking in moving forward? What will they&mdash\;an d we&mdash\;learn from the ways they have pushed beyond their familiar\, ar tistic boundaries?

\n\n

Anne Can field paints small-scale\, intimate scenes of solitary places\, lu sh\, overflowing gardens\, dense mountains seen from a distance\, and exter iors of homes with warmly lit windows. Each of her paintings emits quietnes s through her use of meticulous detailing\, a focus on naturalism\, and a n otable absence of figures occupying her scenes. Canfield&rsquo\;s attention to detail together with her palette of saturated pinks\, greens\, and yell ows\, gives her paintings a luminescent\, jewel-like quality. Her oil paint ings are done on wood panels\, often accompanied by graphite drawings on pa per. \; Canfield remarked: &ldquo\;It has been my longtime daydream to develop a graphite drawing on panel as I would a paper work.&rdquo\; Thus\, for this exhibit she is challenging her artistic process in two distinct w ays. First\, she will produce a full graphite drawing on panel without pain t\, something she&rsquo\;s never done before but has often thought about tr ying. Second\, she has increased the scale of this graphite composition to nearly double the usual size of her work. Producing a pencil drawing on pan el has proven challenging for Canfield\, but the outcome will surely satisf y her curiosity: &ldquo\;&hellip\;I see the paints waving over there and wa nt to give them work. Alas\, I am too curious as to where the graphite on p anel can go in my world\, and I cannot refuse a dare.&rdquo\;

\n\n

Gregory Hayes is a series-based painter whose most recognized bodies of work\, Color Array and Amalgamation\, are created through a methodical process of dripping spherical beads of acrylic paint onto a flat canvas. In his Color Array series\, Hayes begins by drawing a graphite grid onto the \; surf ace creating one-quarter inch squares. He then drips one swirling\, multi-c olored bead of paint into each square\, producing a pristine composition of concentric squares of vibrating color harmonies. In his newer series\, Ribbon\, Hayes aims to abandon this grid structure: &ldquo\;For the < em>Ribbon series of paintings\, I want to push past the typical end po int of my process and make that the new beginning point.&rdquo\; \; Hay es&rsquo\;s &ldquo\;typical end point&rdquo\; is the moment at which his pa int dries. In the Ribbon series\, however\, he considers this the beginning of the painting process. Instead of dripping spheres of acrylic p aint onto a canvas\, Hayes squeezes one-quarter inch strips&mdash\;or &ldqu o\;ribbons&rdquo\;&mdash\;of paint onto a smooth surface. Like his Colo r Array drips\, his ribbons are created through a continuous stream of multi-colored paint\, imbuing each strip with a unique and swirling gradie nt . Once the ribbons dry\, Hayes peels each one off individually and rearr anges them onto a canvas in even\, horizontal strips&mdash\;partially overl apping one another&mdash\;so that the final compositions resemble flattened landscapes of softly shifting colors. The Ribbon paintings that H ayes is creating for this exhibition are more than five times larger than t hose he typically produces: &ldquo\;The creation of these paintings on a la rge scale felt critical since size exposes the effects of the process with greater depth\, revealing the relationship between the interaction of the p aint&rsquo\;s properties and my manipulation of it.&rdquo\;

\n\n

In addition to two large Ribbon canvases\ , Hayes has produced five new works on paper\, measuring 20 x 20 inches eac h\, that mark the conception of a new series altogether. Similar in process to his Ribbon series\, his Reticulum paintings rely on t he manipulation of paint after it dries. Rather than arranging the strips o f acrylic paint into stacked rows\, however\, Hayes has looped and knotted numerous thin ribbons together to form tightly knit clusters of saturated c olor. The end results are sculptural\, threedimensional forms that he mount ed to museum board. He reflects: &ldquo\;Creating this new work has helped teach me to make better use of my intuition\, and depend less on the system ic processes that define much of my earlier work. By opening up my process in this way\, I challenge myself as a painter and hopefully push painting a s a whole further.&rdquo\;

\n\n

Aubrey Levinthal chose color temperature and a particular pigment as a means of challenging her regular practices: &ldquo\;Recently in the st udio I have been thinking about how to paint temperature\, specifically the cold weather of the east coast.&rdquo\; Levinthal&rsquo\;s new body of pai ntings aims to capture the frigid stillness and the unique quality of light that are so characteristic of New England winters. In one oil-on-panel pai nting\, she masterfully depicts a view from her Philadelphia studio window\ , in which the viewer can smell and touch the radiating chill from the whit ewashed panes of glass. One unifying element in each of these new paintings is the use of a specific color: white. Levinthal explains that she spent s o long trying to avoid painting with white and has since come full circle t o reclaim the color in her compositions: &ldquo\;For many years I worked aw ay from white\, fearing it become too recurrent.&rdquo\; Embracing the them e of this exhibition\, Levinthal dared herself to revisit the precarious co lor: &ldquo\;Here I&rsquo\;m using white very purposefully in each painting : as thin\, drafty air\, as the physical but shifting shape of snow\, as ha rsh\, bright light.&rdquo\;

\n\n

Melodie Provenzano is known for her hyper-realistic still-lifes t hat exquisitely capture the textures and surface qualities of her subjects\ , such as metallic Christmas bows or glass figurines. Provenzano gave birth to her first child in August 2016. She explains that shortly after having her son\, she began a new composition of a large black-and-white bow with t he intention of painting &ldquo\;something that my son would enjoy looking at as his eyesight developed.&rdquo\; The bow was still incomplete one year after she started it\, owing to her limited free time. When asked to creat e work for this exhibit\, Provenzano challenged herself to finish the 48 x 48 inch bow\, as well as incorporate a new element that would elevate the b ow beyond a single painting. She decided to create a multi-canvas installat ion&mdash\;with the large bow as its centerpiece&mdash\;using a silk-screen ed wallpaper that she designed in the past. Provenzano has adhered her wall paper onto the surfaces of eight stretched canvases that surround the black -and-white bow. On top of the wallpaper\, she has embellished the canvases with additional paintings\, allowing each canvas to stand on its own. Prove nzano&rsquo\;s installation brings a new coherence and vitality to previous ly worked materials.

Cig Harvey&rsquo\;s photograph s produce an overwhelming feeling of wonder\, admiration\, or even fear of the unknown by looking at life on the threshold between magic and disaster\ , for they are tiny fragments of everyday life captured in a moment of awe. Robert Mann Gallery is pleased to announce You An Orchestra You A Bomb \, a new body of work by Cig Harvey. \; This is the artist&rsquo\; s second solo exhibition with the gallery and opens in conjunction with a n ewly released monograph of the same name.

\n\n

You an Orchestra You a Bomb looks at the artist&rsquo\;s re lationship with life itself. This new series continues on themes of family in Harvey'\;s whimsical and otherworldly style\, while thinking deeper a bout what lays ahead in a formative sensory response to how fragile the pre sent can be. Harvey has always experienced the world viscerally\, but after a traumatic event\, a raw heightened awareness of the temporary nature of life permeates this new work. Through breathless moments of beauty\, her im ages propel us to fathom the sacred in the split seconds of daily life.

\n\n

In today&rsquo\;s culture it seems tha t awe inspiring moments can be overlooked and often forgotten in the fast-p aced realities of the modern world. Harvey shows us it is time to seek out moments that create goosebumps and find a sign that we&rsquo\;re in the pre sence of something extraordinary\, even in the everyday. Blizzard on Ma in Street captures a beautifully serene and calm winter wonderland men aced by the impending disturbance of blinding car lights trampling through the blanketed landscape. The vibrant colors of taxidermic Birds of New England found in a thrift store come to life in a flurry of wings and tails\, while guarding the gazing eye that hides behind them. A young girl contemplating the darkness in the forest beyond as the Magnolia Tree she rests against blooms snow white flowers that threaten to fly away wi th a single gust of wind. Harvey&rsquo\;s photographs are poetic moments th at are part memoir\, part poetry and part love letter to her family.

\n\ n

Cig Harvey'\;s work is included in per manent collections of major institutions including\, the Museum of Fine Art s\, Houston\, Texas\; the Farnsworth Art Museum\, Rockland\, Maine\; and th e International Museum of Photography and Film at the George Eastman House\ , Rochester\, New York. Harvey has published three monographs\, the first t wo sold out in all printings\, You Look At Me Like An Emergency (S chilt Publishing\, 2012)\, which was accompanied by a solo museum show at t he Stenersen Museum in Oslo\, Norway in Spring 2012 and Gardening at Ni ght (Schilt Publishing\, 2015.) Her third monograph\, You An Orche stra You A Bomb will be released December 2017 by Schilt Publishing. T he artist lives and works in rural Maine. \;

Bowery Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibit by A laska painters David Mollett and Jessie Hedden of works created in the envi rons of Vers-Pont-du-Gard\, France. They maintained a six month residency n ear Avignon from February to August. Both artists will be showing oil on ca nvas and acrylic on paper paintings done on location from nature. The beaut iful sunlit Languedoc countryside provided inspiration for the thirty paint ings on exhibit.

\n\n

 \;

\n\n

Hedden&rsquo\;s favored subjects include still life motifs using local wildflowers as well as numerous views of the Gardon River canyon near Collias. Her practice inc ludes black and white acrylic drawings as well as full color oils and acryl ics. Her careful drawing and sensitive color is combined with rhythmic mark making in the surprising original compositions. The paintings form a beaut iful expression of light\, space and color.

\n\n

 \;

\n\ n

Mollett&rsquo\;s work will include vista landscapes of the Gorge du Gardon\, the Vers farming countryside as well as the strange\, rugged e arth formations near the town of Fournes. His practice is to complete the p aintings in the field using the natural light to organize the drawing and c olor. A particular strength of his work is the clear expression of space an d light which creates a vivid sense of the place depicted.

Edward Thorp Gallery announces the opening of Anecdotal Abstraction an exhibition of paintings by Chuck B oyce. This exhibit will mark the artists first solo show with the gallery.< /p>\n\n

Chuck Boyce is a self-taught artist who has developed an immediately recognizable language\, which draws from a diverse range of references and influences. Utilizing his inventive and f ertile imagination he employs various surface patterns and textures\, which result in paintings with vibrant pictorial tension. The interplay of lands cape elements with suggestions of figural forms accomplishes lively spatial complexities.

\n\n

The writer and criti c John Yau states in his introductory essay from the catalogue which will a ccompany this exhibit\, &ldquo\;Calico Sky 2012\, oil on canvas\, is a good example of what Boyce does best\, which is bring different vocabu laries into a fresh possibility: a strangely patterned sky looms above a sh arply rounded landscape marked by what we are likely to read as tilled fiel ds. The space is compressed and disquieting\, while the combination of sky and landscape augurs something unnamable. This feeling of unease\, which is pervasive in our daily life\, is what Boyce touches upon in this work. It is unease that is persistent\, even if we cannot put a name to it.&rdquo\;< /p>\n\n

Chuck Boyce was born in St. Louis\, Missouri\, in 1943. He received his BA from Dartmouth College in New Hamps hire in 1969\, graduate studies at Columbia University in New York from 197 8 to 1979. His writings include Directory of Furniture (Facts on File) 1985 and Shakespeare A to Z (Facts on File 1990)

Also on view in the project ro om will be the work of Three Sculptors. All are recent thr ee-dimensional works presented on both the wall and pedestal.

\n\n

Works by Markus Baenziger&rsquo\;s integrate the artist&rsquo\;s love of nature with a vision of a gritty\ , imperfect\, and industrialized world. A perception constructed with a mas tery of design and an exacting attention to detail. In Matthew Blac kwell&rsquo\;s inspired vision of America\, he wo rks within a variety of methods. An insight raw and spontaneous\, and often analytical\, but always delivered with driving authority and a touch of ab surdity. Billy Copley&rsquo\;s non-functioning &ldquo\;bag s&rdquo\; are a perceptively crafted comment on function\, desire and the t ransience of society. These objects are structured from heavy watercolor pa per then collaged with strips of hand painted Japanese mulberry papers for a highly colorful finish.
