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

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.”

ERNESTO PUJOL: The Bathers Revisited at Magnan Metz Gallery, NY

October 21st – November 19th 2011

MAGNAN METZ GALLERY

521 West 26th Street, New York, NY 10001

Magnan Metz is pleased to present The Bathers, Revisited.  This small exhibition will be on view from October 21 – November 19, 2011.  Pujol recently joined Magnan Metz.  As an introduction to his performance work, the artist is a re-staging a selection of performative photographs in Magnan Metz project space from his successful 2001 series.  The Bathers are revisited a decade later, and is a curatorial compliment to the exhibition of Ariana Page Russell which will run concurrently in the main gallery.
During summer 2001, Ernesto Pujol photographed the solitary rituals of masculinity, i.e. male bodies privately regarding themselves. Pujol choreographed a series of intimate gestures, inviting three men in their 20s, 30s and 40s to perform in the same white bathroom. These were not larger-than-life porn stars relaxing after the money shot, nor towering drag queens wiping off makeup. There was nothing extraordinary about them, no tanned musculature or model beauty. Pujol was interested in exploring the male gaze turned on itself, placing men in the position traditionally inhabited by women in the history of painting.1
