Teresita Fernández: FATA MORGANA, at Madison Square Park, NYC

From TimeOut New York

Over the past 15 years, artist Teresita Fernández has created more than a dozen public art projects that put the viewer in the role of both spectator and performer. Recalling natural phenomena, her evocative installations, which could be called conceptual landscapes, often rely on optical illusions that become more magical with repeated visits. She talks about her new piece, Fata Morgana, at Madison Square Park, and the earlier works that led to it.

Carlos Martiel’s “Ascensión”, at MAAS/Mandragoras Art Space, New York

May 16, 2015

MAAS | Mandragoras Art Space
3601 36 Ave. 3rd. Fl
Long Island City, NY 11106

MAAS | Mandragoras Art Space is proud to open its 2015 Programming presenting Cuban artist Carlos Martiel, on his first solo performance in New York City.

Where is the line that divides a hero from a murderer?

“Ascención” questions the perception of heroism as dependent on the use of power in matters of political conflict and world peace. Martiel bases his critique on the military system, where heroism is grounded on rank and rivalry, and that vindicates authoritarianism and the sacrifice of life for the common good.

In his piece, the artist creates a compelling situation where the audience is able to experience the consequences of patriotism and hierarchy. The problem of violence and power is a constant on Martiel’s discourse. On this occasion, it questions those at the forefront of the arms race, promoting themselves as peacemakers, but ultimately enforcing a world of dominance.

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

Luis Mallo: Interruptions, at Praxis International – New York

Opening reception: Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015   6-8 pm

Jan. 8 – Feb. 21, 2015

Praxis New York
541 West 25th Street,
New York, NY
 

Luis Mallo presents in this exhibition a group of visually arresting images meant to stimulate us to question notions of familiarity. With this series Mallo wants us to understand that the manner in which we perceive our surroundings is contingent by nature. Most of what we see and experience is illusory and therefore, deceptive. His scenes reveal this illusory nature by offering partially concealed and most often perplexing representations of the surrounding landscape and its various props.

For Mallo, Interruptions is not an outcome, but a vital process, a way of looking that may offer a fresh perspective. As previously done with other series, he invites us to look deeper and unearth that which lies latently waiting to be discovered under the veil of familiarity.

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.
