María Martínez-Cañas solo show at Schneider Gallery, Chicago

September 9 – November 1, 2011

Schneider Gallery

230 West Superior Street
Chicago, IL 60654

María Martínez-Cañas is celebrated as one of the most important and influential Cuban born American artists of today. By choosing not to use any of the traditional techniques in photography, Martínez-Cañas has remained dedicated to experimental methods throughout her career. Formally compared to the Dadaists, she has truly made the medium her own with her unique processes and exploratory advances within the foundations of the art.

Her career began in 1982 and has since been shown countless times across the nation. She has received many awards and commissions and continuously proves to be a primary contender in the contemporary art world.

Rogelio López Marín (Gory): Selected Photographs 1985 – 1994 at FARSIDE GALLERY, Miami

September 21 – October 28, 2011

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 24

Farside Gallery

1305 SW 87th Avenue,
Miami, FL 33174

by appointment 305-264-3355

Rogelio López Marín (Gory) was born in Havana, Cuba and he lives and works in Miami, FL. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the National School of Art in Havana. He took a Photographic and Graphic Design course under the tutorial of the Cuban artist Raúl Martínez and has a Master of Art History from the University of Havana.

This exhibition contains over twenty important photographic works by Gory for the period between 1985 and 1994. The work displayed encompasses a series with a marked conceptualist interest with texts by Michael Ende (It’s Only Water in a Stranger’s Tear) and poems by his wife Lucia Ballester and includes more orthodox photographs, with a marked conceptual closeness to documentary photography. All the works are linked by the same toned gelatin silver print technique that gives them a formal unity accentuated by the artist’s unique vision.

Anthony Goicolea: PATHETIC FALLACY at Postmasters Gallery, NY

September 10 – October 15, 2011

Opening: Saturday, September 10, 6 – 8 PM

Postmasters Gallery

459 West 19th Street
Chelsea

Postmasters is pleased to present Pathetic Fallacy, an exhibition of new drawings and photographs by ANTHONY GOICOLEA. This will be the artist’s fourth solo show at the gallery. Central to the exhibition is a forty-foot long wall of layered drawings, large and small, rendered in graphite and ink on mylar.

The term “pathetic fallacy,” coined by John Ruskin in Modern Painters (1856), describes the treatment of inanimate objects and places as if they had human feelings, thoughts, or sensations.

In this new group of photographs and drawings nature takes on anthropomorphic characteristics. A new, uneasy equilibrium is created as human and animal bodies merge, trees grow hair and pump blood, flies multiply into tornadoes and wild dogs settle in the ruins of a home.

George Sánchez Calderón:“The Family of Man”

Until October 8

De la Cruz Collection

23 NE 41st Street,
Miami, Florida

By Shana Beth Mason | August 16, 2011

Whitewall Magazine

It’s impossible to miss by the sounds of it: the clickety-clack of a split-flap departures board reverberated through a tiny ante room in the 30,000 square-foot De la Cruz Collection on the busiest evening of the month for art patrons in Miami, called “Second Saturday.” Entitled “The Family of Man,” after Edward Steichen’s landmark 1955 photography show at MoMA, Miami-based installation artist George Sánchez-Calderón revives the aforementioned exhibition’s concern with the migrations and transitions of the ordinary citizen, but also sharply comments on the seemingly intangible economic institutions and their lack of transition alongside that citizen’s thirst in their torrid, financially-driven world.

….

George Sánchez-Calderón received his MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1995 and his BFA from Florida International University (FIU) in 1993. Sánchez-Calderón produced a true-scale recreation of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye beneath Florida Interstate I-95 during the first Art Basel Miami Beach in 2002. He will open a small gallery space in Downtown Miami called TOMORROWLAND in late 2011. Sánchez-Calderón lives and works in Miami.

Lia Galleti – Reflections on Canvas

September 9th – October 1st, 2011
OPENS: Friday, September 9th, 2011 / 5pm – 7:30pm
ALLIANCE FOR THE ARTS
10091 McGregor Boulevard
Fort Myers, FL 33919

Fresh off her studio in Fort Myers, this show represents Cuban born artist Lia Galletti’s most recent work, encompassing the last three years. Spaciously opening onto the Caribbean and saturated with drama and color, the artist’s paintings are abstract in style; they can be read like an experience emanating from the subconscious, the substance of which is filled with enigmatic images. The impact on the viewer is sensory, and further, the sensation is intensely introspective and surreal.

“I create my art to seek balance in my everyday life and an order within my innermost state of mind in the search for truth in myself and to transform my primitive expression into a universal image, refined through many layers of the ego. That order creates itself before my eyes at the tip of my brush, without a plan or previous knowledge. I let my hand explore at random while staining the canvas without a specific idea, other than to make my vision a reality.”

Diango Hernández: ‘IF I SEND YOU THIS’ at Alexander and Bonin, NY

September 6–October 12, 2011

Alexander and Bonin

132 Tenth Avenue
between 18th and 19th streets
New York, NY

An exhibition of new work by Diango Hernández titled, If I send you this, will open at Alexander and Bonin on Tuesday, September 6th. For this exhibition the artist has transformed the architecture of the first floor gallery to accommodate two site specific installations.

In these installations the artist has re-imagined the geometric ‘cat eye’ of Gordon Matta-Clark’s 1975 “Days End” as an escape from a space of restriction to a space of freedom.

In the main gallery, Hernández is re-removing these shapes, ‘exeunts’ as he has termed them, from the walls and repurposing them as the tables of an imagined agency of international transit and transition. Each table is fitted with a center-piece; a square Plexiglas container within which international stamps circulate endlessly. By juxtaposing the ‘exeunt’ and signs of international correspondence, the artist draws from his experience of the American Embassy in Cuba; a building unused for its intended purpose since January 1961.

Bert Rodriguez, Luis Gispert in SUMMER TIME BLUES at Fredric Snitzer Gallery

August 3-September 5, 2011
Opening Reception: August 13th, 7:30-9:30 pm

Fredric Snitzer Gallery

2247 NW 1 Place
Miami, FL

Blue–statistically the most popular color–can soothe or electrify; it can convey mourning or celebration, melancholy or elation. Although we commonly associate both the Blues and Picasso’s “Blue Period” with suffering, the color blue can also connote erotic passion, security, infinity, purity, fluent thought, and spiritual ascension.

The Fredric Snitzer Gallery’s “Summer Time Blues” exhibition features artists ALICE AYCOCK, ZACK BALBER, LORIEL BELTRAN, TIMOTHY BUWALDA, SEAN DACK, JACIN GIORDANO, LUIS GISPERT, GAVIN PERRY, BERT RODRIGUEZ, DIEGO SINGH, and MICHAEL VASQUEZ, each of whom distinctly and intuitively explores the color which arguably has the greatest emotional and spiritual range.
