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.

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
