Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight, at the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY

Sept 16, 2016–Jan 2, 2017

Whitney Museum of American Art
99 Gansevoort Street
New York, NY 10014

Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight is the first museum exhibition of this groundbreaking artist in New York City in nearly two decades. Focusing on the years 1948 to 1978, the period during which Herrera developed her signature style, the show features more than fifty works, including paintings, three-dimensional works, and works on paper. It begins with the formative period following World War II, when Herrera lived in Paris and experimented with different modes of abstraction before establishing the visual language that she would explore with great nuance for the succeeding five decades. Many of these works have never been displayed before in a museum.

Zilia Sánchez at Galerie Lelong, New York – Interview

From ocula.com

April – June, 2016

In the 1950s, on a Havana rooftop and reeling from the recent passing of her father, Cuban artist Zilia Sánchez (b. 1926) had an epiphany. A gust of wind blew a hanging laundry sheet (the very one her father had been lying on when he died) against a pipe and a wall, and in its resulting form she discovered an entirely new approach to her work. She abandoned painting on flat surfaces and began pulling canvas tautly over oddly-shaped wooden armatures, creating curved peaks that opened painting up from its conventionally rectangular state. Introducing three-dimensional forms to her work, Sánchez’s shift challenged the preferred frontal view of artworks by interrupting the face-on gaze and coercing it around corners.

Constructivist Dialogues in the Cuban Vanguard: Amelia Peláez, Loló Soldevilla & Zilia Sánchez, at Galerie Lelong, NY

April 28, 2016 – June 25, 2016

Opening reception: Thursday, May 5 6-8p

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

Galerie Lelong is pleased to present Constructivist Dialogues in the Cuban Vanguard: Amelia Peláez, Loló Soldevilla & Zilia Sánchez, a group exhibition of three Cuban painters engaged in geometric and constructivist practices from the 1930s to the present. While all three painters enjoyed the support of the Lyceum women’s club gallery, a women’s social and intellectual institution in Havana, their connections go beyond gender. The exhibition reveals shared interests in architecture and space, as well as pattern and color, demonstrating geometric abstraction’s long history in Cuba. Zilia Sánchez will be present for the opening reception on Thursday, May 5 from 6-8pm.

Elio Rodríguez: Puzzled, at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel, NYC

April 1 – May 9, 2016

Reception: March 31st, 6-8pm

532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel
532 West 25th Street
New York, NY 10001
 

Join us next week at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel for the opening reception of Puzzled, Elio Rodriguez’ first solo exhibition in New York City.  The show is on view until May 9th and will coincide with his exhibition On Guard at Harvard University’s Hutchins Center for Afro-Latin Studies and at our gallery’s booth at Context Art New York at Pier 94, May 4-8, 2016.

On view in Chelsea will be the artist’s large scale soft sculptures and the photography based collage works at Hutchins Center, Cambridge.

Elio experiments with the construction of the intimacy of interior and exterior spaces, all things carnal and decorative, functional and artistic, manufactured and native.  His soft sculptures reimagine familiar forms using, in abundant measure, plant and carnal shapes, juxtaposed against sundry objects, metal screws, lace corsets, chains, belts, wire, filament, pins — with results that are pictorial equivalents of familiar concepts and concerns.

Learning Through Performance: An Evening with Ernesto Pujol, at SVA, New York

Thursday, March 17 | 6:30PM

School of Visual Arts
335 West 16th St Fl 1,  New York
 

MFA Art Practice presents site-specific performance artist, social choreographer and faculty member Ernesto Pujol discussing his practice. Pujol is known for his silent, durational, walking performances as portraits of people and places within familiar landscapes and architecture that have nevertheless become invisible. His performances have often served as mausoleums or monuments to forgotten or remembered but unresolved social issues, which have been mourned or reflected upon during the experience. He is the author of Sited Body, Public Visions: Silence, Stillness and Walking as Performance Practice and numerous anthologized essays.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres at the Great Hall Exhibitions series- Institute of Fine Arts, New York University.

March 30 – May 1, 2015

Opening Reception: March 30, 2015, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.

Institute of Fine Arts
The James B. Duke House
1 East 78th Street
New York, New York 10075

An installation of two artworks by Felix Gonzalez-Torres will be featured this spring as part of the Great Hall Exhibitions series at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Organized by Katharine J. Wright and Susanna V. Temkin, this installation pairs two works encompassing different media and conceptual practices that speak to major themes in the artist’s oeuvre. The manifestable candy piece “Untitled (Placebo-Landscape-for Roni)”, 1993 and the static photographic work “Untitled” (Natural History), 1990 offer a point of access into overarching strategies that the artist employed throughout the course of his career. The two works will be on view daily, 1:00 to 4:00 PM, from March 30 – May 1, 2015.


This installation was made possible by the generous support of Eileen and Michael Cohen

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.

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.

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

Galerie Lelong

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.

The exhibition reveals a departure from previous bodies of work in the use of a richer, more complex color palette, a more distinct figuration, and expanded negative space. Also shown alongside the new paintings will be a triptych from 2011, on view for the first time in New York. The artist will be present for the opening on January 9th from 6-8pm.

This solo show features new oil on canvas paintings and works on paper. The title of the show refers immediately to the T.S Eliot poem, but the paintings that Marino shows are far from an illustration of it. In these paintings the artist recognizes the poem as a background to his work. “It helped me put together all the paintings,” he said. “The style of the poem overall is marked by hundreds of allusions and quotations from other texts, like my paintings.”

The Cuban-American visual-performance artist and architect Caridad Sola produces work with one intention – to create unforgettable experiences. She exposes viewers to powerful rituals and provocative metaphors with her passion for the grandiose, the dramatic, and the theatrical.

The performance Our Lady of Apparitions explores the belief in the unbelievable through anomalous, quasi-perceptual experience of apparitions. The artist will perform her own appearance of each Catholic saint she was named after (La Virgin de la Caridad, La Virgin de la Mercedes, and Santa Barbara.) Each day she will begin to appear from the Western point of 14 Street and travel across to its most Eastern point.

October 6-12, beginning two hours before sunset
The performance will begin at the west end of 14th street and end at the east end of the street.

Jorge Pardo in group show THE FEVERISH LIBRARY at Friedrich Petzel Gallery, NY

Friedrich Petzel Gallery is pleased to announce “The Feverish Library,” a group exhibition organized in cooperation with Matthew Higgs, opening on Thursday, September 6th, from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. The exhibition will remain on view until October 20, 2012.

In 1966, John Latham checked out Clement Greenberg’s Art and Culture: Critical Essays from the library at the Saint Martin’s School of Art, where he was an instructor. One evening at a party he asked students to chew up the book’s pages after which he turned the pulp into a clear liquid. After repeated demands from the library for the book’s long overdue return, Latham presented the liquid in a vial. The book in its altered state was not accepted.

“The Feverish Library” brings together a number of artworks whose premises are predicated on the book as a conceptual, psychological, and cultural form. In some pieces, the actual physicality of the book is addressed. The works collectively constitute a meditation on the page, book jackets, design, and content. Some works are arguably a fond or surreal portrait of pulp, a disconcerting look at hoarding and a general nostalgia or malaise regarding the impending obsolescence of the printed medium. And like the expansive and confused Borgesian library, the works in the show will be densely layered.

JOSE PARLA: For New Theater, BAM Commissions a Really Big Painting

By CAROL VOGEL

August 2, 2012, 10:52 am

ARTS BEAT, The New York Times

A decade ago, when the Brooklyn Academy of Music restored its landmark exterior, the Brazilian photographer Vik Muniz decorated the scaffolding of the building’s second, third and fourth floors with images of a giant gingerbread house. It was a colorful confection: melted sugar outlined with giant jelly beans and slithering Gummi Worms recreated the building’s arched windows; giant M&M’s became its frieze.

Now, to enliven its newest theater – the Richard B. Fisher Building – which was unveiled in June and officially opens Sept. 5, the academy has asked the Brooklyn artist José Parlá to create its first permanent commissioned piece of public art for an interior space.

Maria Martinez-Cañas: Photo Paintings at Julie Saul Gallery, New York

September 6 – October 20, 2012

Opening reception for the artist, Thursday, September 6, 6-8 pm

Julie Saul Gallery
535 West 22nd Street
New York, NY 10011

“… Fifth solo exhibition featuring Maria Martinez-Cañas, comprised of large-scale, unique works that have been completed in 2011/12. Described as “Photo Paintings”, this body of work stems from an inversion of Sir Francis Bacon’s process, which originated in cinematic formats and photographic sources that were then turned into paintings. Martinez-Cañas takes his paintings as a reverse starting point; each unique work is of mixed media, incorporating image transfer, painting and collage onto wood veneer, measuring either 96 x 96 or 36 x 48 inches. Her new series, as those that have come before it, wrestles with origins, identity, perceptions and ideas of source, translating the inspirations that have empowered and informed her work into physical manifestations.”
