DESCRIPTION

Neo-Vitruvian, an exhibition curated by Richard J. Goldstein, will open September 23, 2010 at Hal Bromm Gallery, 90 West Broadway, Tribeca. Featured will be works by Rosemarie Castoro, Robert Greene, Mary Jones, Joyce Kim, Molly Lowe, Bobbie Oliver, Jody Pinto, Paul Henry Ramirez, Elizabeth Streb, and Ryan Sullivan.  Included are a variety of materials and mediums, with works that range from painting, photography, sculpture, and choreographic drawings to plans for site specific public projects.  A preview reception with the artists will be held on Wednesday, 22 September from 6–8 pm.

 

On November 12 at 7 pm there will be a panel discussion with the artists to discuss and examine the relationships of the body as a maker and receiver of art.  Neo-Vitruvian will remain on view through November 24.  The gallery is open by appointment.

 

Neo-Vitruvian brings together a diverse group of artists—Rosemarie Castoro, Robert Greene, Mary Jones, Joyce Kim, Molly Lowe, Bobbie Oliver, Jody Pinto, Paul Henry Ramirez, Elizabeth Streb, and Ryan Sullivan.  Through their differences the artists engage the subject of the body both literally and figuratively.  The interplay between the body and nature in Robert Greene’s photographs and between sculptural form and language in Rosemarie Castoro’s work presents both creative parallels and opposing directions simultaneously. The variety of concepts employed by artists in the exhibition make clear that artists are not bound to the Vitruvian absolutes of the circle and square; their works can be—and can become—whatever is desired as their imaginations strike out in new directions.  This basic tenet is seen in a multitude of ways, as Elizabeth Streb strives to make bodies defy gravity, space, and time in her performances while Jody Pinto’s bodies on paper evolve to become large-scale site-specific works whose scale and wit bring fresh meaning to “body” art.  The selected pieces offer viewers an opportunity to find new visions of possibility within and around the body.
