Abelardo Morell: Some Recent Pictures at Edwynn Houk Gallery, NY

October 23 – December 20, 2014

Edwynn Houk Gallery

745 Fifth Avenue, 4th floor
New York, NY 10151

Edwynn Houk Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Abelardo Morell (American, b. Havana, 1948). Following his inaugural exhibition in 2013 with Galerie Edwynn Houk in Zurich, this show marks the artist’s first exhibition at Edwynn Houk Gallery in New York. The sixteen large-scale photographs on view will highlight the scope of Morell’s most recent subjects and his continued experiments with perception.

Reveling in the expectations of the photographic process, Morell’s work is charged with discoveries concerning optics, aperture, exposure, and most notably, camera obscura. Since 1991, Morell has been using the camera obscura to effectively turn entire rooms into cameras: the outside world is transposed onto the interior, creating unexpected and often surreal imagery. In Camera Obscura: Late Afternoon View of The East Side of Midtown Manhattan, 2014 (pictured), the New York City skyline floats over two mysteriously lit doors and the two worlds are flattened into one imaginary place.

Allora & Calzadilla: Fault Lines, at Gladstone Gallery, Chelsea, NY

September 13 – October 11, 2014

 

Gladstone Gallery
515 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011
 

Gladstone Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Allora & Calzadilla. Fault Lines will explore the overlapping mechanics of polyphonic vocal texturing, geological and sculptural displacements, and adversarial rhetorical language in a new performance-based work, featuring an original composition by Guarionex Morales-Matos. The work will feature performances by young male vocalists from the American Boychoir School and the Transfiguration Boychoir. The performances will take place on the hour Tuesday through Friday from 1 – 5 pm with an additional performance at 5:30 pm, and Saturdays hourly from 12:30 – 5:30 pm.

Fault Lines
 consists of a group of ten stone sculptures whose formal vocabulary derives from geological faults – fractures or discontinuities in the Earth’s crust – and choral risers, a set of tall and wide steps used for standing while singing. While the mineral composition of the rocks in Fault Lines took millions of years to assemble, cutting, removing, and displacing sections of their hardened mass has caused an instant and ever-lasting rupture in geological time. The resulting sculptural permutations function as choral risers, which are dispersed throughout the exhibition space and used by two boy sopranos, or trebles, to engage in a verbal duel.

IN MEDIAS RES José Parlá at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, Chelsea, NY

September 12 – October 18, 2014

Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery
505 West 24th Street
New York, New York 10011

IN MEDIAS RES is a chronicle of Parlá’s life, beginning with his childhood and including his extensive travels around the world. Through choreographed, painterly works, the artist creates impressions of life-altering moments that have impacted his art making process.

The artist’s distinctive method of conceptual and abstract storytelling unfolds and insists on its own vivid layers. The material densities of the works infuse the imagery with a sense of visual narration. Parlá’s paintings exist somewhere between transcription and revelation – the accumulation of words, signs and markings evolve into a complex and unpredictable symphony. Time is very much at stake, and each image is an effort to demarcate the passing of time.

Alexandre Arrechea: The Map and The Fact at Magnan Metz Gallery, New York

September 13 – October 11, 2014

Artist Reception: Friday, September 12th 6-8 PM

Magnan Metz Gallery
521 West 26th Street,
New York, NY 10001

Magnan Metz Gallery is pleased to present the fifth solo exhibition for Alexandre Arrechea. The show will be on view from September 13 – October 11, 2014 with a reception for the artist from 6-8 pm on Friday, September 12th.

The often overlooked study and its relationship to the realized artwork have always been of significant importance to Alexandre Arrechea. The two co-existed in the same space; it’s the methodology that shows the natural process in creating the artwork. Traditionally the first stands as the matrix of the second. For this exhibition, however, Arrechea has turned the tables. The artist explains, “With The Map and the Fact I intend to rearrange this relationship with the objective to ask questions of our reality so the drawing in this project becomes a structure closer to the language of a map or a graphical representation of a given ‘territory’. The object is related to this simply through the construction of a section of that map.”

Rolando Pulido, NEW CUBAN POSTER ART: UNVEILING THE UNCONSCIONABLE, at M. Castedo Gallery, NY

 

Friday, June 20, 2014, 6 pm to 9 pm

M. Castedo Gallery
29 West 36th Street, NYC
10th Floor

FREE ADMISSION

RSVP at:  cccofny@aol.com

A unique exhibit of contemporary Cuban poster art by one of its leading exponents, Rolando Pulido, who has selflessly dedicated his talent to support the burgeoning civic resistance movement on the Island. Although within the stylistic continuum of the anti-capitalist poster art that emerged during the first decade of the Cuban revolution—including Alberto Korda’s universally recognized image of Che Guevara—post-revolution poster art, such as Pulido’s, has met a drastically divergent course. The former, as Susan Sontag would point out in her incisive 1970 introduction to “The Art of Revolution,” became a commodity itself. Pulido’s posters, on the other hand, are as technically brilliant and as focused on communication as the best representatives of the genre, yet cannot be defined as coveted consumer art. The distinguished journalist David Rieff will place Pulido’s posters in historical context, addressing the extent to which current cultural trends and renewed political awareness might begin to blot out their marginality.

Award-winning visual artist Rolando Pulido was born and raised in Cienfuegos, Cuba, and has resided in New York City since 1980.

Zilia Sánchez “Heróicas Eróticas en Nueva York,” at GALERIE LELONG, New York

May 3, 2014 – June 21, 2014

Opening reception: Friday, May 2, 6-8pm

Galerie Lelong
528 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001
 

Galerie Lelong is pleased to present its first solo exhibition with Cuban-born artist Zilia Sánchez, Heróicas Eróticas en Nueva York. As a global citizen who has lived in Cuba, Spain, New York, and now Puerto Rico, Sánchez’s hybridized shaped canvases unite the painterly and the sculptural, the formal and the psychological, and the masculine and the feminine. Only the second exhibition of Sánchez’s work in New York in over thirty years, Heróicas Eróticas en Nueva York comprises paintings made in the artist’s signature technique of stretching canvas over hand-molded wooden armatures, and spans fifty years of production. Many of the works on view have never been seen outside of Sánchez’s adopted home of Puerto Rico. The artist will be present for the opening on Friday, May 2 from 6-8pm.

Félix González-Torres and Tomás Sánchez in group show LONE TREE, at Marlborough Chelsea, NY

APRIL 4 – MAY 3, 2014

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 6-8PM

MARLBOROUGH CHELSEA
545 West 25th Street
New York, NY 10001

Marlborough Chelsea is proud to present Lone Tree, a group exhibition of contemporary work inspired by Romanticism, the sublime and in particular the German painter Caspar David Friedrich.

“The artist’s feeling is his law. Genuine feeling can never be contrary to nature; it is always in harmony with her. But another person’s feelings should never be imposed on us as law. Spiritual affinity leads to similarity in work, but such affinity is something entirely different from mimicry.”

- Caspar David Friedrich

We have seen lately a significant resurrection of Romanticism in Contemporary Art. Developed in the late 18th – early 19th century as a reaction to the Industrial Revolution, early Romanticism challenged the pragmatic rationalization of science over the natural world, insisting instead on a philosophy of human emotion, sensitivity, and an expanded imagination of the sublime.
This exhibition is a starting point from which to explore how notions of the spiritual and the magical alongside the sublime and the romantic, have once again, become important as contemporary artists grapple with the rapid developments that are changing the world as we know it, right before our eyes.

Galerie Lelong
528 West 26th Street

Ernesto Pujol’s “Social Choreography” in Lower Manhattan

Pujol was born in Cuba and raised there and in Puerto Rico. As a site-specific public performance artist, his work explores concepts of collective identity, spirituality, and the notion of the artist as a citizen and cultural worker. “I believe that everyone has the right to culture,” he has stated. “And I mean critical culture rather than entertainment. Critical culture is a human right.” His performance practice is based on walking—“durational group performances as public art,” as he states in his website, creating “psychic restorative portraits of peoples and places across the U.S.” Most recently, Pujol choreographed a work presented this past summer at the Istanbul Modern Art Museum, in collaboration with Jeffrey Baykal-Rollins and the Silsila Collective.

Time After Us was presented as part of “Crossing the Line,” an annual festival of interdisciplinary and performance art presented in New York by the French Institute Alliance Française. It took place in Saint Paul’s Chapel, one of the oldest churches in New York, which opened for Episcopal services in 1776.

Mario Algaze – Throckmorton Fine Art

Throckmorton Fine Art
145 E 57th Street
New York, NY
 

Throckmorton Fine Art is pleased to present a photography exhibit of portraits of famous men and women. Portraiture has a lengthy, rich, and diverse history in art. In our era, portraits of the famous have a pleasant association: they are familiar and frequently serve as cultural and temporal markers. These portraits, though, can be enigmatic, showing recognized faces but only hinting at complex personalities and the quixotic flow of fortune and tragedy.

Pavel Acosta: Stolen Paint

June 12, 2013 – January 4, 2014

El Museo del Barrio
1230 5th Ave
New York, NY 10029

Going beyond the legal boundaries, and stealing the state property is an expanded exercise in Cuba. It has even become morally acceptable action — a payback for earning very low salaries, which are not enough to cover the basic needs of a regular worker, in a centralized economy. My recent work was born out of trying to translate this survival strategy into my creative process. Some of my photography series document illicit private businesses the government sees as a form of robbery, like owning a gymnasium for bodybuilding (Stolen Talent, 2009), creating new car designs, by merging old automobiles with modern pieces (Stolen Talent, 2009-2010), or privately using abandoned public spaces (Stolen Spaces, 2006-2009). Another body of work is developed using collage on different media. Stolen Paintings (2008-present) is a series of collage on canvas and paper, which I also started in Havana. There, I used layers of dry paint, which I collected from walls, and found objects in the city. After coming to live in New York, I turned this process into a working technique that is subordinated to specific ideas. Most of the time, the layers of acrylic are prepared in my studio, on top of a glass, to later use it for “dry painting.” In the case of Wallscape, an intervention in El Museo’s collection display, I will reproduce the painting hung in the wall in front of mine —Goat Song # 5: Tumult on George Washington Avenue, 1988, by Manuel Macarulla. I will collect the layers of old paint in my wall, and use this material to reproduce it at a 1:1 scale, as if my wall was reflecting it.

The Wrinkles of the City, Havana, Cuba

May 7 – July 12, 2013

Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery
505 W24th Street
New York, NY 10011

The Wrinkles of the City was started by JR in Cartagena, Spain and has been reprised in Shanghai, Los Angeles, and most recently, Havana. In 2012, JR and Parlá photographed and interviewed dozens of senior citizens who lived through the Cuban revolution, flyposting colossal black-and-white portraits of their subjects on the walls of city buildings. Parlá, who is of Cuban descent, interlaces the images with palimpsestic, calligraphic writings and color. In a city devoid of commercial imagery, JR and Parlá’s enormous yet intimate portraits offer a stunningly humane contrast to the endless repetition of political icons.
