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.

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
New York, NY 10001

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.

Armando Mariño The Waste Land

October 11 – November 5, 2012

532 Gallery
532 West 25th Street
New York, NY

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.”

Caridad Sola / Our Lady of Apparitions, in NY

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.”

Hernan Bas: Occult Contemporary at Lehmann Maupin, NY

15 March – 21 April 2012

Opening Reception
Thursday, 15 March 2012, 6-8 PM

Lehmann Maupin Gallery

540 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001

Drawing from his interest in the supernatural, Hernan Bas’s Occult Contemporary responds to the recent proliferation of the occult in mass media with a presentation of new paintings depicting a representation of the devil based on traditional texts and folklore. Playing on the term “Adult Contemporary,” used to describe a light genre of popular music, the title of Bas’s show plays on this act of genre-fication which has made the presence of the occult and supernatural in books, movies, and t.v. accessible to children and young adults, extinguishing any aura of danger or taboo that the occult once held, and consequently, resulting in varying representations and visual depictions of the devil that stray from those detailed in real folklore.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres in group show HIDE/SEEK: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture – Brooklyn Museum, New York

November 18, 2011–February 12, 2012
Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Wing, 4th Floor

Brooklyn Museum

200 Eastern Parkway
Brooklyn, NY 11238

The first major museum exhibition to focus on themes of gender and sexuality in modern American portraiture, HIDE/SEEK: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture brings together more than one hundred works in a wide range of media, including paintings, photographs, works on paper, film, and installation art. The exhibition charts the underdocumented role that sexual identity has played in the making of modern art, and highlights the contributions of gay and lesbian artists to American art. Beginning in the late nineteenth century with Thomas Eakins’ Realist paintings, HIDE/SEEK traces the often coded narrative of sexual desire in art produced throughout the early modern period and up to the present. The exhibition features pieces by canonical figures in American art—including George Bellows, Marsden Hartley, Alice Neel, and Berenice Abbott—along with works that openly assert gay and lesbian subjects in modern and contemporary art, by artists such as Jess Collins and Tee Corinne.

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

MoMA PS1 website

The attacks of September 11, 2001 were among the most pictured disasters in history, yet they remain, a decade later, underrepresented in cultural discourse—particularly within the realm of contemporary art. Responding to these conditions, MoMA PS1 curator Peter Eleey brings together more than 70 works by 41 artists—many made prior to 9/11—to explore the attacks’ enduring and far-reaching resonance. Eschewing images of the event itself, as well as art made directly in response, the exhibition provides a subjective framework within which to reflect upon the attacks in New York and their aftermath, and explores the ways that they have altered how we see and experience the world in their wake. September 11 will open on the tenth anniversary of the attacks and occupy the entire second floor of the museum, with additional works located elsewhere in the building and in the surrounding neighborhood.
