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.

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.
