David Rathman, Let’s See What Stirs
http://www.larissagoldston.com/exhibitions.aspx
04/06/2012-05/12/2012
-

Larissa Goldston Gallery is pleased to present David Rathman’s fifth solo exhibition in New York. Let’s See What Stirs includes eight watercolors and a 9 -minute film. The exhibition will be on view from April 6 through May 12, 2011 with a reception for the artist on April 6 from 6 to 8pm. For this exhibition, Rathman eschews traditionally recognizable art-historical influences and turns to contemporary culture for source material, appropriating images of events replete with intensity. His large-scale works on paper embrace and portray the excitement, danger and vulnerability of the human experience. Drawing from his lexicon of quintessentially masculine imagery (sports, Westerns and cars, to name a few) Rathman challenges the traditional ideas of the implacability of the masculine ideal. Theses works evoke competitiveness—keeping score, a theme that permeates the majority of Rathman’s work.

Book Signing: Paolo Ventura’s The Automaton

The Automaton is based on a story told to Paolo Ventura as a child. It centers on an elderly, Jewish watchmaker living in the Venice ghetto in 1943, one of the darkest periods of the Nazi occupation and the rule of the fascist regime in Italy. The city where the watchmaker has lived his entire life, now desolate and fearful, is the stage on which the story unfolds. The old man decides to build an automaton (a robot), to keep him company while he awaits the arrival of the fascist police who will deport the last of the remaining Jews from the ghetto.

In 2002, the M SHANGHAI STRING BAND got together in the basement of a Chinese bistro in Brooklyn to share good food and play some music. This acoustic-culinary combination was too special not to repeat, and the band (named after the restaurant) was born. Their debut album “Up From the Ground Below” was recorded in the restaurant’s dining room. Its twenty songs were captured completely live in one day. At their CD release party, the MSSB played four live sets to a standing room only crowd. Brooklyn’s best kept secret was out.

This exclusive one-night-only mimed production, starring Barbara Barrientos, from the original cast, marks the New York City premiere of The Fourth Wall. Written and directed by legendary Cuban playwright Victor Varela, the play’s 1986 opening in Havana broke new ground in experimental theater, yet it unleashed such furor among members of the government’s cultural establishment, that it was censored and shut down.

Loops, Waves, and Textures In the early 1970’s, John Adams began to write music that combined his interest in American popular music, the classics, and electronics. Inspired by the waveform transformation that occurs in a modulating circuit, Adams set out to write music “as if the piano was a generator of waveforms,” by using loops, phasing, and algorithmic devices. Pianist Jeff Lankov will perform Adams’ first exploration into minimalism, the revolutionary Phrygian Gates; as well as his “manic, bipolar scherzo,”American Berserk.

John Cage 2012 @ The New School presents Musicircus a performance event with guest artist Alison Knowles at 4:00 p.m., and a talk entitled”Wanting Not To Say Nothing About Cage” by guest artist Paul Kaiser at 5:30 p.m. What is a Musicircus? As John Cage explains, “You simply bring together under one roof as much music (as many musical groups and soloists) as practical under the circumstances. It should last longer than ordinary concerts … There must be plenty of space for the audience to walk around. … There should be food on sale and drinks (as at a circus). Dancers and acrobats.”

A semi-autobiographical “mockumentary” from a puppetry and performance art pioneer. Lunatic Cunning mixes experiences from Godwin’s own life—such as his work with Julie Taymor on Across the Universe and appearances on Saturday Night Live, Chappelle’s Show, PBS and with Jim Henson’s Muppets. It’s a humorous examination of the occult roots of puppetry and performance art.

ROUDNTABLE: “The Art of Appropriation: Between Literature and Music”

7pm-8:30pm

The Art of Appropriation: Between Literature and Music Peter Szend, Université de Paris Ouest Nanterre Eduardo Cadava, Princeton University Laura Odello, Collège International de Philosophie Liana Theodoratou, NYU Emily Apter, NYU Taking as a starting point a short excerpt from the archives of the Collège international de philosophie (an excerpt in which Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Nancy briefly discuss the notion of responsibility), this event will focus on the concept of appropriation, approaching it from a philosophical, literary, and musical point of view. How can we be responsible for something that we cannot foresee or control? What would it mean to answer for such a thing, appropriating it while at the same time letting it expropriate us? Starting with the example of responsibility – always more than a mere example among others ­, the presentations will reflect, directly and indirectly, on the oscillating structure that Derrida called exappropriation.

OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 2012 6-9 pm Line is unique in that the work does not collectively articulate a single concept—the collectivity of the work is the concept. In their multitude, the drawings bring to the viewer a humanistic and intimate experience, an expression of the elusive mind hidden behind the impressive displays of dexterity and artistic skill of each selected drawing. It is our sincere hope that the viewer will leave not only aesthetically engaged, but also with a sense of connection—the solace offered only by the well-crafted thoughts of an articulate mind.

That’s right, because the DIE is in YOUR hands. With 72 possible endings, you won’t see the same show twice. So take a chance. Their fate. Your hands… Roll the DIE.

Marcia Hafif: Pomona Houses and Ink Drawings

6pm-8pm

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 23, 6-8pm Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-6pm The Ink Drawings were painted using a practice developed during the making of the Pencil Drawings, 1972, always beginning in the upper left corner and finishing in the lower right. The support and medium change while the technique remains the same. Here the ink mixture is more or less diluted, with darker and lighter results. The technique is based on the idea that repetition will produce changing results; the titles of the drawings are the date of completion – a record of the day’s work.

Allison Gildersleeve: Let Me Show It To You Unfixed
www.asyageisberggallery.com
02/23/2012-04/07/2012
6pm-8pm

February 23 – April 7, 2012 Opening Reception: Thursday February 23, 6 – 8 pm Artist Talk: Saturday March 10, 12 pm Starting with recycled drawings, photographs, and revisited childhood places, Allison Gildersleeve builds an increasing complexity – and like a visual puppetmaster, deftly orchestrates our eyes’ travel in perpetual motion. Rather than a passively-observed vista that reveals itself immediately, she aims to orient the viewer in a specific way. Then she allows the paint to swirl into a deliberate morass, forcing us to constantly lose the thread. Finding parallels in poets such as Wallace Stevens, Gildersleeve fights against a sense of order or stasis, and instead leaves borders undefined, odd juxtapositions of scale, vibrations of lush color and constant mark variation. We see a rock and just as soon have forgotten that cognition, as the patch of grey “rock” quickly erases into paint, movement, dab, or stroke. Often the most clarity is found in an unexpected corner or edge

Cindy Sherman
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1170?book
02/26/2012-06/11/2012
10:30am-5:30pm

Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954) is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Throughout her career, she has presented a sustained, eloquent, and provocative exploration of the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation, drawn from the unlimited supply of images from movies, TV, magazines, the Internet, and art history. Working as her own model for more than 30 years, Sherman has captured herself in a range of guises and personas which are at turns amusing and disturbing, distasteful and affecting. To create her photographs, she assumes multiple roles of photographer, model, makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist, and wardrobe mistress. With an arsenal of wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props, Sherman has deftly altered her physique and surroundings to create a myriad of intriguing tableaus and characters, from screen siren to clown to aging socialite.

10:30am-5:30pm

Over the last two decades, geopolitical borders have shifted and new technologies have forged channels of communication around the world. Printed materials, in both innovative and traditional forms, have played a key role in this exchange of ideas and sources. This exhibition examines the evolution of artistic practices related to the print medium, from the resurgence of traditional printmaking techniques—often used alongside digital technologies—to the proliferation of self-published artists’ projects. Bringing together some 70 series or projects drawn substantially from MoMA’s extensive collection of prints and books, with the addition of several important loans, the exhibition features major artists and publishing projects, such as Ai Weiwei, Trisha Donnelly, Martin Kippenberger, Daniel Joseph Martinez, Lucy McKenzie, Aleksandra Mir, Museum in Progress, Edition Jacob Samuel, Thomas Schütte, SUPERFLEX, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Christopher Wool, among many others.

Eugène Atget: “Documents pour artistes”

02/26/2012-04/09/2012
10:30am-5:30pm

This exhibition presents six fresh and highly focused cross sections through the career of master photographer Eugène Atget (French, 1857–1927), drawn exclusively from the Museum’s unparalleled holdings of his work. The sign outside Atget’s studio read, “Documents pour artistes,”—declaring his modest ambition to create images for other artists to use as source material. This humility belied the visual sophistication and distinctive vision that characterized much of Atget’s own work.

Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1230?book
02/26/2012-07/30/2012
10:30am-5:30pm

Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream is an exploration of new architectural possibilities for cities and suburbs in the aftermath of the recent foreclosure crisis. During summer 2011, five interdisciplinary teams of architects, urban planners, ecologists, engineers, and landscape designers worked in public workshops at MoMA PS1 to envision new housing and transportation infrastructures that could catalyze urban transformation, particularly in the country’s suburbs. Responding to The Buell Hypothesis, a research report prepared by the Buell Center at Columbia University, teams—lead by MOS, Visible Weather, Studio Gang, WORKac, and Zago Architecture—focused on a specific location within one of five “megaregions” across the country to come up with inventive solutions for the future of American suburbs. This installation presents the proposals developed during the architects-in-residence program, including a wide array of models, renderings, animations, and analytical materials.

Ingredients of Reality: the dismantling of New York City
http://www.lantuazon.com/
02/28/2012-04/07/2012
7pm-9pm

Ingredients of Reality: the Dismantling of New York City by Lan Tuazon presents sculptures, drawings and prints that discuss how history, the law and class structures are written on the physical environment. Surrealist in concept, Tuazon takes real/existing parts of the built environment — including buildings, lots, and monuments – and creates a new reality against the repressive logic of property. The exhibition includes the presentation of two new works: Architectures of Defense and New York City Bar Graph, which paired with Tuazon’s Army Park and Parking Lot Landscape, present the city disassembled into parts and functions unveiling taxonomies of power reordered into new composite figures that render visible what reality has ceased to distinguish.

In addition, the show will include a selection of significant works spanning Wood’s career that emphasize the social and environmental issues that have informed his works since the late 1950s.

Harriet Korman: New Paintings
http://lennonweinberg.com/current/current_1.html
03/01/2012-04/14/2012
00pm-00pm

Harriet Korman’s last solo exhibition of new work took place at the gallery in 2008. She has continued to focus on color and shape in new paintings that attain a decisive and brilliant clarity. Basing the compositions on line drawings, Korman uses the location of the lines as boundaries between colors, and selects individual unblended pigments for the resulting shapes. She exposes each color’s intrinsic qualities of hue, brightness, transparency, and texture through the juxtaposition of related or contrasting colors and a deceptively casual paint application. Diagonals that slice across the mostly four by five foot canvasses give rise to an interesting reverse symmetry; horizontals and verticals further divide wedges into triangles and polygons. In the end, Korman achieves a shifting dominance between whole and divided shapes through the purposeful selection and arrangement of color.

Artist’s Reception Thursday, March 1, 6:00–8:00 pm Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce Records, an exhibition of black and white photographs by Mark Ruwedel. Records will open on Thursday, March 1, and will close on Saturday, April 7, with a reception for the artist on March 1 from 6:00 to 8:00PM. This is Ruwedel’s second solo exhibition with the Gallery, which presented his first New York show, Westward the Course of Empire, in 2009. The exhibition will present the artist’s recent projects in the western United States, focusing on the collision of promise and reality. The photographs, primarily of homes and landscapes, were made in the desert regions surrounding Los Angeles, from the western Mojave Desert to the Salton Sea region, as well as in Utah and on a small island in British Columbia.

Corinne Wasmuht
http://www.petzel.com/exhibitions/2012-01-12_joyce-pensato/
03/01/2012-04/28/2012
6pm-8pm

Wasmuht is widely known for her large-scale, multi-layered oil paintings. Her work derives from an array of pictorial inventions, culminating in an aesthetic tension that aims to reconcile what the artist refers to as the “dualism of modernism,” a melding of representational and abstract structures in painting. The paintings’ images are generated from an array of abstracted and overlapping photographic imagery that Wasmuht sources from a combination of the Internet and her own personal photographs. The images, both appropriated and her own, mine daily life, nature, science and art, fusing into staged abstracted productions. As Wasmuht describes her process, “In a film, one image is followed by another, whereas I pile the images up on top of one another.” Above all, her labor-intensive painting technique characterizes her work.

6pm-8pm

OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 01, 2011 6:00 PM It has been almost two years since the very first release of Impossible instant film, the wildly anticipated new black & white instant film for Polaroid SX-70 cameras. Although the film was initially in a developmental stage and highly experimental, it dawned on both fanatics and photographers alike that the impossible actually could become possible. Just 19 months later, Impossible has released 12 unique film types for three separate Polaroid camera systems. Although the journey has been short, the length Impossible has come represents a milestone in reviving instant analog photography. Using Impossible’s latest color and black & white films, twelve carefully selected photographers are illustrating a MOMENTUM that will carry instant analog photography through the digital age and beyond.

The Ungovernables

The 2012 New Museum Triennial will feature thirty-four artists, artist groups, and temporary collectives—totaling over fifty participants—born between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, many of whom have never before exhibited in the US. The exhibition title, “The Ungovernables,” takes its inspiration from the concept of “ungovernability” and its transformation from a pejorative term used to describe unruly “natives” to a strategy of civil disobedience and self-determination. “The Ungovernables” is meant to suggest both anarchic and organized resistance and a dark humor about the limitations and potentials of this generation.

Cut and Paste at Muriel Guépin Gallery curated by rhv fine art
http://www.murielguepingallery.com/
03/02/2012-04/15/2012
6:30-8pm

Although the process of collage has been around for millennia it was George Braques and Pablo Picasso who, in the early 20th century, made the act of cutting and pasting disperate elements of paper, cardboard, string or basically whatever into works of fine art. This marked the beginning of a mash-up between “high” and “low” culture that would eventually occupy an enormous movement in contemporary art. RHV Fine Art has selected three artists, James Cullinane, Sharon Lawless and Andrew Zarou, from it’s exceptional roster of artists, each of whom uses the technique of collage in different ways and to different ends.

Heide Fasnacht: Loot
http://www.kentfineart.net/exhibitions/main.html
03/02/2012-04/21/2012
-

Since 2008 Heide Fasnacht has been exploring landscapes of cultural destruction and in the process has recovered images long dormant and silent. Against our social climate, marked as it is by an inability to face history, Fasnacht takes on the challenge of excavating the past as she examines the fate of cultural artifacts in times of conflict. She begins in medias res, figuratively and literally, and assembles arrays of things stolen, hoarded, lost, recovered, and demolished as a result of war. Fasnacht draws on multiple sources, including the Nazi’s confiscation of art and treasure, the Allies’ bombing of Monte Cassino, looting and damage at the Umm al-Aqarib archaeological site in Iraq following the US invasion, the methodical looting of treasure by Japanese forces in WWII, Japanese internment camps in the US, the Taliban’s destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas, the London Blitz, the TET offensive, the Monuments Men, and the Rubble Women.

David Krut Projects is pleased to present Print Me, the first exhibition dedicated to Chakaia Booker’s prints. Booker began collaborating with Master Printer, Phil Sanders, of Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in 2009, and has created over 100 unique prints to date. The title of the exhibition, Print Me, refers to the collaborative dialogue between Booker and Sanders, in which Booker would leave hand written notes for Sanders once her compositions were finished and ready to print. This exhibition features a selection of these collaborative prints, which highlight Booker’s investigation of the two-dimensional framework through experimental print media.

Reception March 2, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM SIMONE GILGES presents, in her second New York solo exhibition at Foxy Production, a new series of photographic portraits. Her photographs draw astute visual connections between the people she portrays and the settings in which they are posed. Gilges channels the tropes of portrait, design, and fashion photography into an enigmatic idiom that both discloses and holds onto its secrets.

This March, Causey Contemporary is pleased to present Mesmer Eyes, a solo exhibition by Kathy Goodell. Sculpture and drawing, Goodell’s most familiar forms, are utilized as physical accents within Mesmer Eyes, the tactile qualities leading one from nature to the metaphysical. Mesmer Eyes is characteristic of Goodell’s meditative approach to space, time and consciousness, while optimizing her interests in light and prismatic color to create a hypnotic effect, allowing the tangible to meet the abstract. This will be the first solo exhibition by Ms. Goodell at the gallery, which will include a large-scale, interactive painting installation, aqueous pigment print photographs, sculptures and drawings from 2011-2012.

OPENING RECEPTION 2 MARCH, 6 – 8 PM Evans examines the processes of making art — the generation of ideas and materials, their transformation from one to the other, and the many varied states in between. For this exhibition, he will present paintings, sculptures, photographs, and a sound piece in an all-encompassing environment. The wall paintings and collage environments of past installations, such as timecompressionmachine from Greater New York 2010 at MoMA PS1, have been collapsed by the artist and transferred to the surface of large-scale canvases. Mundane materials such as artist’s tape that previously played a key role as a barrier, frame, and drawing tool, are carefully recreated as trompe l’oeil representations, as the use of actual tape in the final compositions diminishes.

Opening Reception, Friday March 2, 6-9 pm INTERSTATE PROJECTS is pleased to present The Remaster Cycle, Jesse Hulcher’s first solo exhibition in New York. Through a wide range of digital and analog mediums, Hulcher explores the ways that corporate media influences how we view such disparate cultural experiences as the Vietnam war, Groundhog Day, and the Grateful Dead, among others. With Groundhog Days – or – Same Shit, Same Day, Hulcher has written a custom DVD script that alters the playback of 1993’s Groundhog Day, dictating that the central portion of the film devolves into an endless loop, rendering it a more realistic depiction of Phil Connor’s experiences in Punxsutawny, PA. Staying within the medium of mass market film, The Vietnam Experience – or – Same Shit, Different Song, the viewer is presented with a distallation of the entertainment industries cinematic representation of the Vietnam War thoughout the previous four decades.

Dark Pop 4

7pm-11pm

Last Rites Gallery, for the fourth consecutive year, presents the “Dark Pop 4″ group art exhibition guest curated by Gary Pressman (director of Copro Gallery). Artists are asked to create One piece that is truly considered ‘Dark Art’. Many artists find themselves in the groove of creating a certain mood or emotion through their work and have, understandably, become quite comfortable following this path in their art-making. At Last Rites Gallery we want to break that mold and challenge artists to create a piece that searches through new or buried feelings and emotions. The artist’s will let go of the light and allow the dark to thrive, as pop takes on a new form.

THE POP-UP MUSEUM Opening!

8pm-

THE POP-UP MUSEUM of the Gowanus Canal March 3 – April 22, 2012 Opening Reception: 8:00 PM, Saturday, March 3rd Tumblr: http://gowanuslab.tumblr.com/ A museum’s mission involves the categorization, preservation, and contextualization of objects within a finite space. The Pop-Up Museum is designed to function as the inverse of these practices, bringing together a set of local, “unremarkable” objects that then become art or serve as a springboard for art that references them. Through the playful contextualization and re-contextualization of these objects, we will redefine the museum—both what a museum looks like, physically, and what it does, culturally. Specifically, we will work with found materials from all around the Gowanus neighborhood to create a new “history” of the region and its traditions (a not entirely serious one).

MOLLY SMITH TIDAL
http://www.katewerblegallery.com/
03/03/2012-04/14/2012
6pm-8pm

Molly Smith’s second solo show at Kate Werble Gallery addresses the artist’s personal response to the impermanence and cycles of change within the world. The works in this exhibition are purposely unfixed and mutable; they lean, balance, rest or hang precariously, suggesting the possibility of further transformation. Playing with varied heights and angles, Smith’s sculptures intersect one another across sightlines. Along one wall, strips of painted and cut paper are reassembled to span the thirty-five foot length, creating an undulating panorama. As they reference one another with recurrent materials, gestures and objects, the works suggest changing states. In the windows of the gallery, rotating displays show various combinations of a landscape painting, a photograph, and collected ephemera. These displays change daily to reflect how looking, seeing and making are part of Smith’s everyday.

JOHN ALMANZA AND DAVE HARDY
http://www.reginarex.org/
03/03/2012-04/08/2012
7pm-10pm

The paintings of John Almanza and the sculptures of Dave Hardy reflect the reckless abandon of progress, with an emphasis on looking at how materials get relegated to the side as other forces push forward. Indulging in the abundances available to them, both artists consider excess and overflow as vital to the physicality and construction of their work. Almanza’s viscous oil paintings rely on a process of application and removal of paint. While the paintings are still wet, he traverses the canvas with a thin strip of plywood—simultaneously scraping away paint with the swipe of a line and adding paint that is carried across on the plywood. This forms a pattern of hard parallel lines that reveals underlying ghosted abstractions perpetually in limbo. Hardy’s sculptures of found glass, foam and an assortment of other materials build tension from the interplay between hard and soft edges. Engineered to confound notions of structural integrity, these works borrow from the urgent language of p

Speakeasy Dollhouse

7:30pm-

Inspired by Lee’s miniature crime scene sets, von Buhler decided to create the scenes from her family mystery using her own handmade sets and dolls. Utilizing evidence from autopsy reports, police records, court documents, and interviews, she has built a dollhouse-sized speakeasy, a hospital room, a child’s bedroom, and a pre-war apartment. She also created lifelike dolls with moveable limbs to live in these sets. Taking it to another level, von Buhler has now created an immersive theatrical experience to go along with the sets and her own investigation. The play stages these events in mobster Meyer Lansky’s former Lower East Side speakeasy. The location is elaborately set up to mirror the dollhouse sets from the book. The play’s tagline is “The speakeasy is our dollhouse and the actors are our dolls.”

7pm-10pm

From nameless nudes to portraits of monarchs, the figure in art has served to codify power. So have art objects, splitting viewer from viewed. Our figures have agency. Our work empowers viewers as complicit participants, as centers of process and experience. We complicate and push against dichotomies and hierarchies: self/other, rural/urban, black/white, perpetrator/victim, family/stranger, performer/observer. We are four artists who met through NYFA’s MARK program. We quickly found common ground in our disparate uses of the figure at intersections of the social/political/personal.

Rachel Uffner Gallery is pleased to present a show of new work by Sam Moyer. For her second solo show at the gallery, Moyer will exhibit pieces that continue her examination of the liminal space between the two- and three-dimensional, albeit in a larger, more imposing scale than her work has explored before. In paintings that hover on the edge of sculpture, and sculpture that hovers on the edge of painting, Moyer recalls the rigorous language of mid-20th-century minimalist art, but also the modest, playful and scattershot material processes of home design projects.

or more than four decades, Woods’ drawings have expressed compelling ideas and portrayed otherworldly scenes that suggest alternate histories and futures. With an inventive drive akin to that of Leonardo da Vinci and Giambattista Piranesi, and following the lineage of Enlightenment architect Etienne-Louis Boullée and Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger, Woods invites us to imagine worlds as they might be. His drawings embrace decomposition alongside construction and ruin along with rebirth, presenting a heady brew of politics, history, and graphic bravura that never fails to astonish.

An extension of the Swept Away exhibition, Swept Away Projects will include a series of “live” installations occurring during the run of the exhibition that will allow audiences to experience and interact with artists and their site-specific installations made of ash, dust, sand, and dirt. The series includes the floor installation of Catherine Bertola of the U.K., who works with dust, among several others. In some instances, visitor will actually get to sweep away the installations by walking through and touching them, participating in the ephemeral nature of these artists’ output. Swept Away: Dust, Ashes, and Dirt in Contemporary Art and Design is made possible by the Inner Circle, a leadership Museum support group, and with public funds from the Netherlands Cultural Services.

Morgan Lehman Gallery is pleased to announce, “It’s Yours: Wars of the Frenglish Revolution and Other Conflicts 1782 – 1797”. This is the first New York solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Frohawk Two Feathers. Two Feathers’ intricate ink and tea-stained portraits on paper bring to life his complex historical narrative detailing the colonial uprisings against the imagined 18th-century superpowers Frengland and Fenoscandia. Using actual historic events as points of departure, Two Feathers creates fantastical riffs on Europe’s colonial past, revealing how that history plays out in the cultural and political complexities and neo-colonial global conflicts of the contemporary world.

OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, MARCH 8, FROM 6-8 PM Block Island, located 11 miles off the coast of Rhode Island, is an important stopover for birds on the offshore migration route of the Atlantic Flyway, offering respite at sea during their seasonal flight. Elizabeth Dickens, a long time resident, began collecting dead birds on the island beginning in the early 20th century. She had them stuffed and catalogued, amassing a valuable ornithological record consisting of 172 specimens. The cause of death- flew into a lighthouse, death by cat, death by telephone wire- was always noted.

Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Available Light , a new series of photographic works by Sarah Charlesworth from 6 March to 14 April 2012. The exhibition will open to the public Tuesday 6 March with a reception for the artist Thursday evening, 8 March from 6 to 8 PM. Light, in both a physical and metaphysical sense, is at the center of this new body of work from Sarah Charlesworth. Making use of a crystal ball, an assortment of prisms, and other optical instruments, Charlesworth engages the play of light from her studio window as it reflects and refracts to conjure a mysterious animated presence. At various turns our expectations are questioned and confounded by optical inversions and visual illusions. Composed images of spectral phenomena are shown side by side with documentary style images of the studio. Props arrayed on a desk and studio materials leaning against a wall hint at the show in progress.

Hall of Fame,” on the 19th floor of the gallery’s penthouse space, features new paintings by Joe Andoe. Andoe has created these instantly recognizable works with his distinct style of applying oil paint and wiping it away, shaping shadow and light, blurring the contours of his subjects. These subjects are specific to his practice and reflect his fascination with iconic American imagery. Here he has returned to horses. It is the combination of his technique and use of a monochromatic palette, which result in the powerful images that comprise the current exhibition.

Klaus von Nichtssagend is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Benjamin Butler, entitled Some Trees. Featuring new oil paintings, the show will open on March 8th and run through April 22nd. An opening reception will be held for the artist on Thursday, March 8th from 6-8pm. The exhibition will feature a variety of Butler’s oil paintings on canvas, from the large scale to smaller pieces conceived of and hung as a series. The title of the show is borrowed from the John Ashbery poem, ‘Some Trees’, and points to Butler’s specific meditation on painting. For most of the past decade, ‘trees’ and ‘forests’, have served for Butler as a pictorial stand-in and a point of departure for making abstract paintings. In these recent works, Butler is seen approaching his paintings more directly as objects, considering not only the front surface of the canvas, but the sides as well.

Lombard Freid Projects is pleased to present Oriental Accident, Mounir Fatmi’s second solo show with the gallery. The exhibition features a collection of works never before shown in the United States made between 2009-2012. As always with Fatmi’s work, the art is political in nature and confronts issues in the contemporary Arab world. The native Moroccan, who lives and works in Paris, uses installation, sculpture and video to explore modern day industrialization, recent insurgencies throughout the Maghreb and the Middle East, and the inevitability of history repeating itself.

Launched before the formal incorporation of Culture Project, Women Center Stage is our longest-running programmatic initiative. From the first collection of works presented under the festival mantle in 1996, Women Center Stage has grown into a multi-pronged initiative, an echo chamber for women artists to build community and share their stories, and a launch pad for provocative and relevant new work. The cornerstone of WCS is the annual Women Center Stage Festival, a dynamic and diverse laboratory for works in progress from women artists at all levels of their careers. Presented every March for Women’s History Month, the month-long Festival provides a much-needed setting for exploring new ideas and inspiration, testing out early stages of new work, and putting women artists in dialogue with their peers, new audiences, and critical review.

Stephen Prina’s seventh exhibition at Friedrich Petzel Gallery will consist of three triptych paintings. These paintings are made on commercially produced linen window blinds with the final installation comprised of 9 blinds that hang from the ceiling. The blinds function both as sculptural objects as well as a support for Prina’s typical abstract gestural brushstrokes in shades of red, yellow, and blue. Prina transfers the three primary colors that have been repeatedly drawn on by modernist artists such as Piet Mondrian or Barnett Newman into an architectural setting.

This is the New York-based artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and his first in New York in over a decade. The exhibition presents the first comprehensive overview of the artist’s ongoing Ball Park Series spanning the past 25 years. Since the late 1970s, Russell Maltz has produced sculptures, installations, and wall works informed by the aesthetics of baseball fields and stadiums. Executed with a broad array of off-the-shelf, unrefined construction materials, including sheets of plywood and glass, metal wall studs, 2x4s, sawhorses, enamel paints, and more, his Ball Park Series works can be characterized by their consistent use of the colors green and white, which directly reference the vibrant green Astroturf of the field and stark white chalk lines demarcating the boundaries of the game of play.

ionas Gallery is pleased to announce Lend Me Your Eyes, the first New York solo exhibition by sculptor and ceramicist Jessica Stoller. Stoller’s sculptures range from table-top figures and busts to large scale multi-piece works. In this solo endeavor Stoller continues using clay as a vehicle to explore issues of idealized beauty, vanity and the subjugation of the female body using porcelain as her primary media, a material inextricably linked to desire, secrecy and commodification.

Distorting (A Messiah Project 13C)/Daniel Horowitz’s 365 drawing project/The Artists of The Invisible Dog
http://www.theinvisibledog.org/?p=9305
03/10/2012-04/05/2012
11am-6pm

The Invisible Dog Art Center is thrilled to announce the opening of three solo exhibitions, one group exhibition, and in house artists open studios, all on Saturday March 10th. On the ground floor, R Justin Stewart’s sculptural installation Distorting (A Messiah Project 13C). In the garden gallery, Daniel Horowitz’s 365 drawing project. In the third floor gallery, Malcolm Brown’s photo-portraits The Artists of The Invisible Dog. Each of these in-house artists will contribute a piece to a group show Work/Space 2012 also on the third floor, and offer Open Studios on the second floor. The show hours and open studios are Saturday March 10th, 1-10pm and Sunday March 11th, from 11am-6pm.

The Other Ken Weathersby
http://www.aferro.org/websitebaker/wb/pages/home.php
03/10/2012-04/14/2012
7pm-10pm

Ken Weathersby’s exhibition includes easel-sized, patterned abstract paintings, photographic works, and several wall-mounted boxes containing tiny, crafted objects resembling miniature paintings. The works in the show shuffle the traditional given stuff of pictures and picture-making. The paintings are subtly pulled apart, or have pieces cut out and removed, or their painted faces refuse to be seen. The wall-mounted boxes may be mere models for groupings of larger works, or may be works in themselves. This intentional ambiguity extends to photographs included in the show, paired portraits, where false resemblance and mistaken identity might seriously undermine what a profile picture is supposed to do.

Ann LePore Mapping for Empathy (The Landscape is Deadly)
http://www.aferro.org/websitebaker/wb/pages/home.php
03/10/2012-04/14/2012
7pm-10pm

Social activism, American history, and a love of technology and science collide in Ann LePore’s recent work. “I used to think that landscape images were innocuous, boring even, until I was 16 and had re- occurring nightmares about being trapped inside a Wyeth painting. Now during my research trips to historical societies, environmental research centers and even aboard the research vessel SeaWolf, I keep one eye on the landscape, looking for correlations between my findings and their immediate natural surroundings. There are often subtle indicators in our landscape which can be interpreted to reveal what divides or unifies us.”

IAN DAVIS Jewel Sermons

03/10/2012-04/21/2012
-

The title of the exhibition refers to a strategy used by preachers to examine different aspects of complex ideas. Just as one might inspect the facets of a diamond by turning it over in the light, Davis offers his viewers multiple possibilities for understanding his narrative intentions. While contemplating subjects such as wealth, collapse, futility and hubris, he creates a diverse population of oligarchs, imposters, subversives, scientists, African soldiers, TV journalists, insurance adjusters, and “various types of frauds and charlatans.” In a formal departure from the flat patterning and ordered geometry of his earlier work, many of the recent paintings are newly energized by circular compositions and spiraling vortex-like structures. In Curriculum Vitae (2011) Davis stages a vainglorious celebration around concentric banquet tables.

Alasdair Duncan makes colour saturated graphic Signs for the Future. Recalling the lexicon of our designed world, Duncan’s signs are stand-ins, signifying things that do not yet exist: not futurological predictions, rather they are emblems of the not yet imagined. They are familiar, but withhold their intentions; indeterminate yet full of promise. They often sink into their own representational space, or logical game.

SANTIAGO TACCETTI Smoke & Mirrors / Nothing To See Here
http://www.blackandwhiteartgallery.com/
03/10/2012-04/15/2012
-

The exhibition will also feature a dramatic site-specific installation “Smoke & Mirrors / Nothing To See Here” by the Berlin-based, Argentine artist Santiago Taccetti. Integrating with the Black & White Project Space’s architecture, the simple plastic structure lit from inside and filled with smoke will occupy the outdoor gallery revealing itself as an illusion on closer inspection. The illusion of entering an area clearly defined by four walls is broken as soon as the observer enters the brightly lit cube triggering the smoke machine. What is to be experienced is the infinite space without any clear distinction between the inner and outer spaces.

STEFAN SEHLER: BECAUSE IT’S THERE

-

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 10, 6-9 PM Parker’s Box is delighted to welcome back the Berlin-based painter, Stefan Sehler. In each of his exhibitions at the gallery, the artist has never failed to surprise, always giving the impression that he has pushed his subtle reverse glass painting process and its challenging discourse to its absolute limit, before embarking on another equally challenging new proposition. Speaking in Artforum about the artist’s previous exhibition at the gallery, Donald Kuspit suggested that Sehler’s paintings “demonstrate that modernist painting is not necessarily dead – it still has some tricks up its sleeve – and show that a quasi-photorealistic picture can have a [striking] message”.

-

The exhibition showcases the diversity of the gallery program. The 8 artists included with works representing a variety of media (paintings, installations, sculpture, photography and design) reveal the sharp awareness they have of today’s circumstances. Ranging from Michael Van den Besselaar’s witty and wry observations on a range of familiar social subjects and Eric White’s insightful commentary on the absurdities of life, Isidro Blasco’s artist-designed architectural environments, Amy Talluto’s investigation of the in-between states of painting through quiet and expansive natural worlds and Roberley Bell’s focus on the artifice of nature, to Alejandro Moreno’s and Julian Montague’s exploration of everything from the mundane to the sublime through text and image, the works in this exhibition cover a wide range of practices, lending the exhibition an uncanny edge.

The winter Fashion at FIAF series extends into the Gallery with a witty collection of colorful fashion drawings and paintings by Jean-Phillipe Delhomme, one of the most delightful satirists in fashion today. Delhomme is a painter, writer, cultural blogger, and fashion illustrator, whose illustrations have been featured in renowned magazines such as Vogue, W, Vanity Fair, GQ, and The New Yorker. In this exhibition, he explores how fashion, contemporary art, and design interact with each other and influence today’s popular culture.

David Lynch
http://www.jacktiltongallery.com/
03/11/2012-04/14/2012
-

An icon among American filmmakers, David Lynch is equally committed as a visual artist. He began his career as a painter and started making short films while a student at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia to find a way to make his paintings move. Lynch works across many different media to create paintings, sculpture, works on paper and photographs. Recent paintings combine primitively drawn figures and text with thick textured areas of paint and, often, inserted lit colored light bulbs. Framed in thick gold frames under glass (inspired by Francis Bacon’s frames), they become box-like, objects in their own right. Narrative subjects exhibit Lynch’s trademark whimsy, wit and humor along with his recognizable penchant for the ambiguous, yet precisely depicted, frozen moment that unveils an instinctual, often violent or tragic human emotion, almost verging on the absurd.

One morning in the office of a mysterious small business, an employee finds a copy of The Great Gatsby in the clutter of his desk. He starts to read it out loud and doesn’t stop. At first his coworkers hardly notice. But after a series of strange coincidences, it’s no longer clear whether he’s reading the book or the book is transforming him.

Nick Ghiz: Fiction Paintings
http://www.lesleyheller.com/
03/14/2012-04/16/2012
-

Opening Reception: Friday, March 16, 6-8pm Influenced by my daily devouring of literature, I would say the pictures which I paint are a visual form of fiction writing. They are essentially pre-narrative set-ups containing fictional elements hopefully encouraging subjective interpretation. Painted into raw panels with thin paint they become a sort of contemporary fresco into wood. Nick Ghiz 2006

Exquisite Corpses: Drawing and Disfiguration
http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1256
03/14/2012-07/09/2012
-

In a collaborative, chance-based drawing game known as the exquisite corpse, Surrealist artists subjected the human body to distortions and juxtapositions that resulted in fantastic composite figures. This exhibition considers how this and related practices—in which the body is dismembered or reassembled, swollen or multiplied, propped with prosthetics or fused with nature and the machine—have recurred in art throughout the 20th century and to the present day. Artists from André Masson and Joan Miró to Louise Bourgeois and Robert Gober to Mark Manders and Nicola Tyson have distorted and disoriented our most familiar of referents, playing out personal, cultural, or social anxieties and desires on unwitting anatomies. If art history reveals an unending impulse to render the human figure as a symbol of potential perfection and a system of primary organization, these works show that artists have just as persistently been driven to disfigure the body.

Byzantium and Islam Age of Transition

-

The Eastern Mediterranean, from Syria across North Africa, comprised the wealthy southern provinces of the Byzantine Empire at the start of the seventh century. By that century’s end, the region was central to the emerging Islamic world. This exhibition will be the first to display the complex character of the region and its exceptional art and culture during the era of transition—from its role as part of the Byzantine state to its evolving position in the developing Islamic world. The dialogue between established Byzantine and evolving Islamic styles and culture will be shown through images of authority, religion, and especially commerce. Iconoclasm as it emerged during that period among the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic communities of the region will be addressed.

Kris Kuksi Triumph

03/15/2012-04/07/2012
-

Reception Thursday March 15th from 6-9pm Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present Triumph, an exhibition of new works by the Kansas artist Kris Kuksi, including mixed-media sculpture, painting, work on paper, and a large-scale installation. This is Kuksi’s third solo outing with the gallery and the most diverse presentation of his work to date. With its cautionary title, Triumph skewers the hubris and folly of human ambition. This cavalcade of epic works references mythology, the occult, and organized religion, and uses age-old techniques of visual storytelling to voice personal angst. Depicting grand themes with extravagant embellishments, Kuksi’s assemblages of small, mass-produced materials are intrinsically narrative. Like gilt Baroque altarpieces, their stunning excess of detail is the ideal vehicle for the artist’s critique of power and piety. And like those early works of public art, they appeal to the viewer to transcend the strife and striving associated with greed.

Colette Calascione

03/15/2012-04/21/2012
-

The next exhibition at Nancy Hoffman Gallery is new work by Colette Calascione, her first solo show in New York in six years. The exhibition opens on March 15th and closes on April 21st. A female figure is the focal point of each oil painting, seated, standing or reclining, and most often nude. While the paintings stretch to 2×3 feet in scale, they are generally of a more intimate size, from 8×10 inches to 20×20 inches, on wood panels. Inspired by books and images of earlier eras of art history, particularly the Deco era, as well as Japanese aesthetics, Calascione invents a world that is her own. Images of women and children in old photographs are transformed in the artist’s hands. She never literally copies a photo or its background. When she sees a figure she likes, her vision forms around it. Clothed figures in photographs are sometimes undressed by Calascione in her paintings, and placed in a mise-en-scene she creates.

Sikkema Jenkins & Co. is pleased to present an exhibition of a new series of black and white photographs by Mitch Epstein on view from March 16 through April 14, 2012. Mitch Epstein’s new work features the idiosyncratic trees that populate New York City, underscoring the importance of trees in urban life and their complex relationship with the city’s human dwellers. Trees have long been a leitmotiv in Epstein’s projects, especially in his series American Power (2003-2008). After five years of photographing the manifestations of energy production and consumption across the United States, Epstein decided to make pictures that reflect how he, “would like to see the world, not simply how I have inherited it.”

Kirk Stoller: still standing… sort of
http://storefrontbushwick.com/2012/02/kirk-stoller/
03/16/2012-04/15/2012
6pm-9pm

Two consistent themes in Kirk Stoller’s work are connection and support. He builds sculpture using found wood, plastics, and other elements divorced from their original intent. He fuses the worn states with new, clean, glossy surfaces: the narratives that arise when things are placed on or near one another reflect how the artist makes sense of the world. All life is a collection of small precariously placed pieces that rely on each other for strength, in actual form or through a labyrinth of memories. Stoller’s foundation is in painting, though he works and understands the world through a sculptor’s lens. His work echoes this tension, as he continues to be intrigued by the space that exits between the two mediums, both in the physical sense and through the myriad possibilities that are inherently distinct to each. He uses an interdisciplinary approach to push the boundary, while highlighting desired issues that can only be deciphered when the two are combined.

“20” a solo exhibition by Stikman

-

Opening Reception: Fri. March 16th 2012 • 7-11pm hat more can be said about the mysterious artist known only as “Stikman” that hasn’t been uttered hundreds of times by passersby all over the city? His work is sneaky, incredibly thought provoking and uncommonly satisfying to come across, and if you have been living on the east coast or, well, basically anywhere in the states you no doubt have discovered it in some aspect. It could be in the form of 3D men made of small sticks to figures hidden in iconic imagery pasted to doors, or literally under your feet, smashed into the concrete. The range of mediums used and the calculated creativity given to each piece is overshadowed only by the sheer amount of work he has affixed to our cities surfaces. Tireless efforts aside, his stick formed character remains one of the most recognizable images in urban art culture.

Francesca Woodman will be the first major American exhibition of this artist’s work in more than two decades, and the first comprehensive survey of her brief but extraordinary career to be seen in the United States. The retrospective will include more than 100 vintage photographs, many of which have never been exhibited, and includes several of the large-scale blueprints she created at the end of career, as well as the intimate black-and-white photographs for which she is best known. Now nearly thirty years since her death, the moment is ripe for a historical reconsideration of her work and its reception. Born in 1958, Woodman’s oeuvre represents a remarkably rich and singular exploration of the human body in space, and of the genre of self-portraiture in particular.

SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to announce Ragged Kingdom, the first solo exhibition on the West Coast of work by British artist Jamie Reid. For nearly four decades, the political convictions and visual narratives of Reid have successfully driven the strength of his presence in art, music, performance, politics, and publications. From his collaboration on the Suburban Press (1971-1975) to his iconic album artwork for the Sex Pistols to his poignant support of movements such as Occupy London, the Criminal Justice Bill and the current environmental crisis, Reid is best known for exposing and protesting modern society’s social and cultural injustices.

Ultimately, Shafer attempts to tickle a profound truth out of each person he encounters in each project. His props and costumes are tools that make it easier for people to share their personal truths with the public.

The five artists have stayed connected through years of art collaboration; writing, filmmaking, photographing, painting, performing, etc. – all while pursuing a career as individual artists. ‘New York at night’ was the starting point for the years long correlation, whether it’d be working behind a bar or DJ’ing, or plunging deep into nights of arousal, courage, seduction and obscurity. The title of the exhibition reflects upon the diverse associations that come with the word ‘night’. From being a time of serenity and stillness to excursions and indulgence into the derangement of nightlife.

For Jim Shaw’s exhibition at Metro Pictures the Los Angeles-based artist presents a large mural and 20 drawings comprising a comic book that center on his fictional religion Oism, a narrative Shaw has been developing for more than 20 years. The works draw on eccentric aspects of American history and quirky old imagery to illustrate part two of Shaw’s proposed, four-part Oist prog rock opera. Its story, told through the comic book, follows two small-time crooks as they break into the Museum of Oist History in Omaha. Seeking refuge from encroaching FBI agents the pair ducks into a 24-hour wig museum where a helpful curator hides them beneath wigs that inexplicably render them invisible and transport them to the ancient homeland of the religion’s founding deity O.

-

Opening Reception: Wednesday, March 21, 6–8pm In her works in sculpture and installation, Virginia Overton employs readily available or repurposed building materials as well as common found imagery in reaction to the particular conditions of the exhibition space and its environs. She has developed a sculptural vocabulary that uses and reuses these materials and images. While the work often incorporates large-scale elements, Overton still allows for a sense of ad hoc fragility in the provisional relationships she sets up between the architecture and her materials. The heightened awareness of the weight-bearing loads and the pull of gravity underscore how the materials have been asked to perform, holding traces of past uses and process to become more than just “raw” material.

7pm-9pm

Mystics: A blessed rage for order focuses on artists who obsessively and willfully engage in compulsive processes to create meticulous work spanning a range of media. The exhibition illustrates the delicate balance of technique and materiality, when process is as integral to a work’s meaning. Mystics is a formal exploration of art and labor: intensive individualism and form are enhanced by painstaking, methodological creations that evoke awe and wonder. Artists to be announced.

Three magicians. Two acts. One show. Zero boring stuff. Sub-zero intelligence. It’s time to make it all add up… In the Elephant Room. Illusionists Dennis Diamond, Louie Magic and Daryl Hannah invite you to a place of secrets. Of mystery. The place between the back of your mind and the tip of your tongue. Let’s pretend it’s a room – a real room. And you’re really here. In the Elephant Room. Oh, and by the way – your mind was just totally blown clean through the back of your head. We will confound, amaze, mystify and move you. We’ll leave you slack-mouthed, devoid of any bodily function, your hands twitching from their wrists, a puddle of crushed perception. (Sorry – that’s just what we do.)

Color Photographs from the WPA (1939-1943)
http://www.carriagetrade.org/
03/22/2012-04/29/2012
-

Largely forgotten until the mid-seventies when they resurfaced in the Library of Congress archives, the color photographs of the Works Project Administration (1939-1943) document the later period of FDR’s New Deal, an ambitious series of government programs designed to address the brutal effects of the Great Depression on the social and economic fabric of 1930’s America. While the Library’s archive of black and white depression-era photographs is more familiar and more often reproduced, the color images, taken within three years of the invention of Kodachrome film, are striking for their rich, saturated colors and rigorously formal compositions.

Brian Ulrich Is This Place Great or What: Artifacts and Photographs
http://www.saulgallery.com/chronicle/ulrich_2012.htm
03/22/2012-04/05/2012
6pm-8pm

Our third solo exhibition with Brian Ulrich is the culmination of his decade-long photographic investigation of American consumerism. Previous exhibitions at the gallery have presented three overlapping yet distinct chapters in the Copia series: Copia (2002-06) examines the complex relationship between consumers and the industries that seek their consumption, while Thrift (2005-07) focuses on the trickle down of goods. His most recent work, Dark Stores (2008-11) looks at the empty malls and big box stores which have gone belly up during recent years. “The work is a sustained exploration and critique of the rabid half-life of appetitive consumption,” writes Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa, “of its scale, its apparent inevitability, its wastefulness and its cynicism” (Appetite for Consumption: Brian Ulrich’s Copia, http://thegreatleapsideways.com).

So to Speak
http://www.bricartsmedia.org/events/opening-reception-so-to-speak
03/22/2012-04/28/2012
-

So to Speak creates an encounter between visual and verbal forms of representation. Each work in the exhibition weighs the difference between these two forms of expression, reflecting on the faults, slippages, and tensions that arise when representing images with words. Curated by Emily Berçir Zimmerman, as part of the Lori Ledis Emerging Curator Program, So to Speak presents artworks by four artists – Fiona Banner, Hollis Frampton, Melinda McDaniel, and Klub Zwei – that question the status of the photographic image as a purveyor of truth, and the predominance of still and moving images within the current visual regime. It also seeks to draw attention to the use of text in the exhibition itself – wall labels, postcards, brochures, and other documentation – to speak for objects, deeply altering their meaning.

Martos Gallery is pleased to present New Traditionalists, a group exhibition featuring works by American artists Justin Adian, Jess Fuller, Leif Ritchey, and B. Wurtz, organized by Mary Grace Wright. Justin Adian (b. 1976, Fort Worth, TX) manipulates painterly surfaces into playful psychosexual conglomerations. Canvas is wrapped tightly around bulbous upholsterer’s foam and sprayed with sleek industrial paint, its contours overlapping in tantalizing ways. Jess Fuller’s (b. 1972, Portland, ME), hand dyed fabric paintings have evolved into plush sculptural reliefs. These distressed canvases are both stuffed and dismembered, exploiting and exposing the material’s structural limits. Fuller presents these sprawling, colorful hides in various formats, shapeshifting from wall to floor, image to text.

7pm-9pm

NURTUREart is pleased to present Argo, a solo exhibition by emerging artist Arianna Carossa, a winner of the 2011/2012 open call for Artists and Curators. Carossa’s artistic practice aims to question an object’s potential, not only how we interact with it, but the imaginary (or real) possibilities of its autonomous existence. Can an object be alive? Moreover, would human presence be necessary to validate the life of something inanimate? Would that something even exist, without us?

Part & Parcel: The Deconstruction of the Female Form in Contemporary Art
http://www.partandparcelexhibition.wordpress.com
03/25/2012-04/26/2012
1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

The works in this group exhibition are united in their use of bodily fragmentation to investigate the role of women in modern society. Fragmentation is a versatile tool in visual art, as it allows us to simultaneously see the human body in a more focused manner, and to step back from it and view the body as an abstract form – it can lead to reactions ranging from analytical to emotional. While interpretations are individual to both artist and viewer, Part & Parcel undoubtedly inspires us to think about the body in novel ways.

Kathryn Markel is pleased to announce a group exhibition curated by Theresa Hackett and Michelle Weinberg titled Little Languages/Coded Pictures. A painter creates a lexicon. A glossolalia of marks, swerves of the brush, scrapes, dabs, drips. An anthology of the painter’s experience is translated into pigmented pastes of varying transparencies and densities. Application of these little languages to the surface of a painting, builds a story, intimate or epic. Of space and time, of the weight of gravity and slipping free from gravity. Pictorial space and logic is built of hermetic symbols created by the painter. One thing stands in for another. One gesture is surrogate for a single thing, or an entire range of experience. Learning to de-code he painting’s surface is part of the pleasure for the viewer. Exhibition Reception: Thursday, March 15th 6 – 8 PM

Irina Korina: “Demonstrative Behavior”

03/25/2012-05/13/2012

Scaramouche is pleased to present the first U.S. exhibition of Moscow-based artist Irina Korina. Known for her oversized, elaborate installations, the artist debuts a group of compelling works conceived for the gallery space and assembled under the title “Demonstrative Behavior”. Originally trained in theater design, Korina’s work takes the forms of columns, anthropomorphic sculptures, and architectural constructions. These complex configurations, with their myriad parts and appendages, bring to mind the opulent and playful stage sets of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. Her work however, does not reflect the splendor of Imperial Russia. Rather, the artist seeks to illuminate the last three decades during which the Soviet Union has undergone a painful transition from socialism to its own peculiar brand of capitalism. With wholesale furniture markets serving as her source of inspiration, Korina utilizes makeshift materials such as veneer, plywood, fabric and plasticine. Self-adhesive faux m

DANIEL FISH – A (RADICALLY CONDENSED AND EXPANDED) SUPPOSEDLY FUN THING I’LL NEVER DO AGAIN (AFTER DAVID FOSTER WALLACE)
http://www.chocolatefactorytheater.org/e_danielfish.html
03/26/2012-04/07/2012
-

*the Friday April 6 performance will begin at 7pm, with an extended running time. Drawing exclusively from audio recordings of David Foster Wallace (readings he gave of his short fiction, essays, and an extensive interview he did for German television), director Daniel Fish and an ensemble of 5 actors seek to re-create the amazing presence Wallace brought to everything he wrote about, be it professional tennis, a boy’s thirteenth birthday, or America’s obsession with entertainment. Individual listening devices serve as functioning props, delivering the text live to the actors in performance. The selection, order, and tempo of the recordings are mixed live. Wallace is not a character in the piece. Rather, his work as translated by the performers is like the garment of a dear, dead friend: an artifact that simultaneously and dramatically evokes his presence and his absence, asking us: How present can we be? How generous in the way we experience the cacophony of our world?

Urban Odyssey

03/26/2012-04/08/2012

Urban Odyssey depicts the experience of immigration to America through movement and visual theatre. This new work is the culmination of a ten-year investigation that began in 2002 with a production created from Federico Restrepo’s personal experience as a Colombian immigrant. The first episode 9 Windows revealed a series of multi-media experiences of being a displaced immigrant. The second episode Open Door (2006) addressed the impact of the many immigrants from diverse cultural backgrounds that make up NYC; revealing their histories and states of mind. The third episode Room to Panic (2008) depicted the joy, fear, alienation and struggle that reveal the allure, disillusionments and rites of passage to achieve the American Dream. Urban Odyssey will merge all these concepts, creating an epic journey that acknowledges the inevitability of a new American culture. A voyage of human experience, from leaving ones homeland, to finding a new country, to making a new home and setting down roots

How do these pictures of the human body and natural landscapes relate to one another? How do the two, when shown together, affect our perceptions of nature and ourselves? The Wild & The Innocent seeks to complicate the modern oppositional relationship between the body and nature in order to explore the truths of our own transience and infinitude — our dual limitlessness and powerlessness — as reflected in the wilds of nature and the slopes of the human form. Included in this exhibition are emerging and established photographers, many of whom often obsessively document their personal lives. These are photographers who constantly seek to reframe the ways we perceive our environment and bodies.

Nir Hod: Mother

03/28/2012-04/28/2012
-

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of 10 new paintings by the artist Nir Hod. Referencing the iconic photograph of Nazi soldiers clearing out the Warsaw Ghetto taken by the Nazi photographer Franz Konrad in 1943, Hod’s paintings focus on the anonymous woman rather than the iconic boy. The “Boy from Warsaw,” as he is known, has been the primary focus of this horrific photograph, and has become a symbol of the Holocaust. As Dan Porat of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem writes in his book The Boy: A Holocaust Story (H&W/FSG), “Looking at a photograph, the viewer sees the surface facts and comes to believe he or she has grasped the inner truth of the events depicted, can feel the pain, can see the evil, while in fact knowing nothing of the protagonists, circumstances or context associated with those events.”

The course is primarily brush-orientated, but will also include instruction in the use of crow quill pens and other tools. Through working with these tools of the trade, you’ll learn inking techniques and develop a sense of the “thinking behind the inking.” The goal for the course is for each student to have created at least two inked pages by its end.

“Nose Bleed” Curated by Erik Foss

03/28/2012-04/25/2012
-

Opening Reception: Wednesday, March 28, 7-10pm Nosebleed takes its name from the prevailing motto of that sensibility, that we wouldn’t go up there (up being anything north of 14th Street ) because we’d get a nosebleed. It is redolent of all the provincialism that makes New York City so myopically special, where neighborhoods do matter and where the global view remains much the same as Saul Steinberg’s classic New Yorker magazine cover, View from 9th Avenue, where the details of the city end at the Hudson River as the west gapes beyond like an insignificant wasteland. Make that drawing looking up from Fuse and you’ll see a similar void outside the center of our universe. Downtown may have been colonized by money and gentrified into something way white and polite, but the attitude persists. These are the artists of that particular place of mind. – Carlo McCormick

PRIVATE PREVIEW Wed., March 28th, 6-8pm Dimensions Variable, curated by Max Weintraub, brings together four artists who radically reconsider, recast and re-present the sculptural object. Employing a broad range of forms, materials and processes, Creighton Michael, Jae Ko, Derrick Velasquez and Golnar Adili create works that challenge our conventional understanding and definition of sculpture and invite us to look anew at the aesthetic object and the space it inhabits. The works assembled in this exhibition push the boundaries of sculpture into new and variable directions, allowing us to appreciate how the sculpted form, and our relationship to it, continues to be nomadic and unsettled.

Also on the program—the revival of last season’s hit Batuke, a hard-driving piece exploding with the rhythms created by smooth samba steps, capoeira lethal kicks, and the stick dance Maculelé.

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of some 20 new paintings by Caio Fonseca (American, b. 1959). This show, his fifth with Paul Kasmin Gallery, is the artist’s first New York exhibition in five years. Fonseca has created a new body of work, using a freshly invented visual language. This work represents a bold departure in both spirit and technique from the work for which Fonseca is most known. Gone are the over-painting, ground form relationships, and embellishments present in work of the last ten years. Here, irreducible forms in precise architecture belie their apparent rigor. One form through its placement creates the form beside it, which in turn creates the next, activating both the vertical and horizontal forces in a uniquely processional movement. Working in both large-scale and intimate formats, these

Liberty and Orders picks up where we left off with Nari Ward’s 2010 exhibition LIVESupport. In 2010, Ward exhibited “Father and Sons,” a video work depicting two sons and their police officer father. The father stands as a symbol of the safeguards we have in place, but as we are aware, oftentimes these safeguards do no operate as intended. In the past year, Nari Ward went through the process of naturalization. One of the reasons being that it offered him protection. Wishing to “cover” himself, Ward became a U.S. citizen and in the process faced various questions and subjects concerning law and authority. These experiences became key influences for the works in this exhibition. Becoming a citizen for many is an emotional experience, one that is celebrated with tears of joy. For Ward, the act of making these works was cathartic in the same way tears of joy are. The exhibition explores a range of themes dealing with anxiety – such as the anxiety of being stopped by police – our relationsh

Bookstore: Fair Exchange

12pm-6pm

Eyebeam will host an opening reception on March 29th at 6PM. How much can we share and how much can we ask from audience? “Fair Exchange,” featuring work by David Horvitz and Kyle McDonald, questions the systems of knowledge production and human interaction with machines in the public space. For the duration of the exhibition the Eyebeam Bookstore will present editions and publications by the artists. A schedule of related performances is available at the project website. “Fair Exchange” is curated by Eyebeam Fellow Taeyoon Choi as part of his initiative New Normal Business. David Horvitz creates instructions for participation that utilize the Internet as a space of exchange. In November of 2011, he staged ‘life drawing’ sessions at Occupy Wall Street in collaboration with Adam Katz. Kyle McDonald creates software for interactive experience. His project ‘People Staring at Computers’ was installed at Apple stores in NYC and took photographs of shoppers gazing at the screen.

Gudjon Ketilsson

Gudjon Ketilsson’s art revolves around the human body in its presence as well as absence. Starting with the cranium, the sensuousness of hair is felt through his carved and painted sculptures. Continuing the corporal investigation, Ketilsson draws in exquisite detail, abstractly rendering elements of his own body. Further, he investigates the questionable and surprising beauty of skin diseases, in jewel-like watercolor. In a major, segmented wall relief, the artist recreates only the headwear used in Brueghel’s famous painting, The Peasant Wedding. These hats indicate the occupation of the wearer and are as animated as the original painting. The body, Ketilsson feels, is the most classical subject of art and philosophy and never ceases to be of interest as it is the core of our existence. The body is everything and nothing, mysterious and yet scientifically mapped, fragile and strong. This is Gudjon Ketilsson’s first one person show in New York.

For the last few months these pictures have been my monsters of the week. They form the consequences of the decisions I have taken and these consequences have an afterlife of consequences, which I have had to face. So, I accepted the fate that these fictions of mine have become truth – and more – actual materializations; that I have, from the depth of my windowless studio, unleashed another artwork upon a world already crowded with others. These pictures are not about painting. They are also not about being monochrome, despite the fact that some of them are monochrome paintings. The ones that are painted, I painted as my own assistant for economical reasons but also out of interest. You can, if you have the taste for it, look out for an artist “touch” but it was merely a paint job: I p..painted those p..pictures because there was no other way. These pictures are about the reasons why they are what they are.

Earthly Delights is an exploration into the seductive nature of the apocalypse. Based loosely on Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights”, the works of Oscar de Las Flores, Kim Keever and Christy Langer are integrated in this exhibition to explore human, animal, and landscape in a fantastical, prophetic and tangible take on the world we live in. Both menacing and enchanting, the works in this exhibition comment on our complexities negotiating our relationships within in an increasingly unnatural and complex world, pointing to past and current transgressions.

Out Side showcases the work of three artists, Michele Araujo, Elana Herzog and Lisa Sigal. All three work abstractly, with an awareness of the theatrical potential of materials and a desire to dislodge the viewer from a sense of previously understood terrain. Formal abstraction becomes a means to step outside, to lead the viewer through and past boundaries to an intimation of meaning that cannot be fulfilled in the traditional sense.

he Hole is proud to announce the exhibition “Giverny,” a collaboration between E.V. Day and Kembra Pfahler opening March 30th. The artists created photographic works in the famous French gardens built and immortalized in paint by Claude Monet, and will be exhibiting them for the first time here on the Bowery. Playboy.com has generously funded this massive exhibition, for the duration of which the Hole will be transformed into a living, breathing garden—with a lily-padded pond traversed by Monet’s signature green Japanese arched bridge, and scattered with the indigenous plants he is famous for painting. The walls of the exhibition will be printed with the almost claustrophobically green willow trees that surround this historic French site, and your first step into the gallery will be onto grass.

From Thursday through Sunday each week (1-6 p.m.) Zanisnik will read Philip Roth’s The Great American Novel within a life-size Plexiglas container specially designed to fan baseball cards and outdated currency. Taking intermittent breaks to eat lunch with his parents, Bob and Carol Zanisnik, the artist will also tinker with an expansively cluttered installation of junk sourced from both Abrons storage spaces and his own childhood home; police costumes, hardware shelving, and cardboard share strange proximity with his childhood comic books, toys, baseball cards, and other icons of boyhood.

Lisa Cooley is thrilled to announce the opening of Andy Coolquitt’s new exhibition, chair w/paintings. This will be the first solo show in our new location at 107 Norfolk Street. Andy Coolquitt will present a dense arrangement of 35 sculptures thatexplores the continuum betweenenvironments and discreet artworks, and between public and private realms.Coolquitt transforms found objects and assemblages into sculptures. His choice of scavenged materials – plastic lighters, discarded straws, striped fabrics, hands making rude gestures, beer cans, and metal pipes – suggest metaphors for energy and spark various social dynamics. This exhibition, his third with the gallery, illuminates qualities of togetherness, a constant motif for Coolquitt. The title chair w/paintings suggests objects gravitating towards each other, an object casually placed against the wall, or multiple works functioning as a whole.

Artists Linda Ganjian, Jesse Lambert and Jeremy Stenger share a fascination with real and imagined space, the pleasures of pattern, and an intimate engagement with their immediate surroundings. Working in different media, these artists combine the logic of decoration and design with elements from the real world, creating hybridized and unique perspectives of their urban, domestic or natural environments.

James Cohan Gallery is pleased to present Not a Particle or a Place but an Action, an exhibition of works by California-based artists MAURICIO ANCALMO and SARAH RARA, opening on March 30th and running through May 5th, 2012. This will be the first New York gallery exhibition for both artists. In the front gallery, Sarah Rara’s hour-long film A Ray Array (2011) comprises 15 visual and aural essays on the idea of interference, that range, in the artist’s words, “from the failure of a message to be discernable, to sudden interruptions, visual disturbances, the interaction of two sound signals, instability, and optical effects.” Fingers twinkle in the sun; a felt hat spins; a stained glass moon slowly turns. A Ray Array is a wonky, wordless and amused bit of science that harkens back to Ed Ruscha’s early meditations on the banal and John Baldessari’s Surrealist, saturated Pop while also defining a contemporary left-coast aesthetic—one that is disarmingly sincere, visually beautiful and une

Jen Bekman Gallery is pleased to present A Year in the Life of 8 String Theory Drawings, eight works on paper by represented artist Carrie Marill.

Every day over the course of a year, Marill methodically worked upon each of the eight gouache paintings in A Year in the Life of 8 String Theory Drawings. Both strong and delicate woven colors twist through a stark white landscape, creating fanciful silhouettes of the natural world. With titles such as Fear, Solace and Growth, the interactions depicted between crows and trees take on an anthropomorphic quality. Writhing branches become more than just nature but cathartic symbols unfolding in a chronicle of a tumultuous year in the artist’s life.

12pm-6pm

Half a century since its abandonment, North Brother Island fades from New York City’s map as nature swallows this one block square quarantine city. Just down the East River, Ward’s Island warehouses shelter New York’s homeless and mentally ill in a dozen immense buildings clustered under the Triborough Bridge. Brother Islands is a reworking of a performance piece that premiered at Eyebeam’s MIXER series in 2007 to a sold out audience. This new work is an experimental documentary in the form of a looping video painting. Close inspection of the abstract, layered video imagery reveals glimpses of a long abandoned island quarantine. QR codes frame the video and link to a first-person account of island life in today’s homeless shelters. This work is a collaboration between Eyebeam alum Benton-C Bainbridge, who produced and conceptualized the video, with fabrication assistance from Minou Maguna and original text by Bill Etra.

MF Gallery, fine purveyors of the eccentric and bizarre, are proud to present the collected works of one of their own. “Living In Interesting Times” is an exhibition of the drawings, paintings, prints and sculptures of Drew Maillard. There is an ancient Chinese curse that goes “May you live in interesting times.” Drew Maillard was born and raised in America in the last quarter of the 20th century… A fascinating era to be sure. He is a product of his environment. Nature and nurture; habitat and conditioning combined. Drew’s adolescence was divided between comic books, horror and sci-fi films, and fantasizing about girls he didn’t talk to. Also there was Punk Rock and L.S.D.. After spending some time in the army and leaving his hometown in upstate NY, he received his Bachelor Of Fine Arts degree from SVA in 2000. His life experiences and travel, as well as an interest in scuba diving and ju-jitzu is what informs Drew’s crazy crazy artwork.

Amos Eno Gallery is pleased to present an assembly of small-scale sculptures by Anti Liu, who works in various adaptable mediums. With this recent body of work, Liu hovers between fascination and destruction of human relationships. He questions the effects of one’s roots and culture through an interweaving of humor, madness, fragility, aimlessness and immobility of current circumstances. Liu comments on current affairs and political action in a playful manner, which recognizes the severity of the issues at hand, yet transforms them into a show one is watching or a game one is playing. Liu has participated in many national and international solo and group exhibitions, and he has been noted in numerous publications. His public sculpture can be seen at several locations here in New York State, including Adelphi University, Long Island University, and the Unison Arts Center at New Paltz. He currently teaches sculpture, three-dimensional design and ceramics at Adelphi University. Anti Liu S

These include tone rows, synthetic scales, melodies, linguistic shapes, intervallic patterns, textural gestures, modes, ragas, maqams, and plainchant. The score serves to provide material for both the improvisations and the orchestrations. Motion and forms and are generated through the application of the composer’s rhythm concept “Cyclic Verticalism” whereby polymeters are combined with additive rhythm cycles.

Artist’s Reception: Thursday, April 5, 6 – 9pm Our household cat of many years died in 2006 when she was quite old, and my subsequent feelings of loss led me to ask myself these questions: How is it possible that I, a human being, can share the quality called “life” with another animal that is so different from me? How is it that I both identified with her and experienced a powerful feeling of her otherness? Contemplating these perhaps unanswerable questions led me to observe and photograph a variety of animals- other than humans.

Being Shakespeare

An aging Lear, disintegrating with his kingdom. A cryptic Ophelia, driven mad by madness. Hamlet, hell-bent on revenge. All of them came from the brain of Shakespeare, but what do we know about the Bard himself? In a tour-de-force performance, veteran actor Simon Callow (the original Roman Mozart in Amadeus on stage, the film Shakespeare in Love) assumes the daunting challenge of illuminating the man behind the roles in this utterly compelling one-man play by preeminent Shakespeare biographer Jonathan Bate, directed and designed by Tom Cairns. Channeling Macbeth and Henry V here, musing over Shakespeare’s childhood there, Callow leaps from anecdote to soliloquy, using the famous Seven Ages of Man speech from As You Like It as his guide to consider how a glovemaker’s son could have gone on to write the world.

Cheryl Hazan Contemporary Art presents three artists who work with metal to perform a kind of alchemy or flux. With interests in science and nature – in different ways, each transforms the hardness of metal into organic forms. One scientific definition of flux is the magnitude of a river’s current, that is, the amount of water that flows through a cross-section of the river each second. Another is the amount of sunlight that lands on a patch of ground each second is also a kind of flux… imagine a butterfly net. The amount of air moving through the net at any given instant in time is the flux. Or …the movement of a substance between compartments the movement of molecules across a membrane.

White Box is pleased to present the collaborative project between John Aslanidis and Berlin-based sound artist, Brian May: Sonic Network no.9. Akin to their first collaboration in 2006, May has composed a generative sound piece to be played for the duration of the exhibition in conjunction with Aslanidis’ painting, Sonic Network no.9. Each of the four panels that comprise Sonic Network no.9 contains a grid relative to a set of mathematical intervals that Aslanidis uses to create a drawing of compositional intervals, similar to a musical score. May has written an algorithm—using a programming language for sound synthesis, called “SuperCollider”—that determines the characteristics and timing of the sound in relation to the intervals. Taking into consideration the structure and composition of the painting, May emulates the mechanisms of painting by responding to the moiré (wave-like) patterns…

D a n c i n g – a documentary on invented space is the first solo exhibition in New York of video artist So Young Yang. In her artistic productions, Yang explores the question of ‘the real’. She combines her main interests in the concept of perception of our surroundings that stems from her background in psychology, as well as how ‘the factual’ is presented through documentaries from her experience as a film editor. Yang works with documented material, which she transforms by enhancing both the audio and the image, creating a specific aesthetic of her own to illuminate the topic of the real. This exhibition is presenting the four video artworks KRO (2012), A DARK PRINT (2012), JULIA (2011), and THE WINDOW (2007), all of which investigate the idea of the choreographed body and the perceived space. Yang considers the dance as an emotional or intellectual struggle that is expressed by the very movement of the body. Her interpretation enhances her perspective on these bodily motions, and s

Opening: Wednesday, April 4 / 6 – 8pm Our internal mechanisms form machines of production and preservation. We mirror the internal process with external obsessions of maintenance. The boundary between exterior and interior is blurred and porous. We live in an abstract endlessness, a lived immortality through retouch, facsimiles of reality, sustenance via desire and image. The opaque visual field is so over saturated that layers of images build on top of each other creating a 3D world on top of the real one. When glitches occur in our unbounded desire to conserve our bodies, we generate solutions. More plastic more coverup more wrapping more preserving.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 4, 6 – 9pm New York artists Abigail Deville and Stephen Woods flip the script with their offer of installed works exploring the unruly nature of histories personal and political, while simultaneously questioning the stability of our prescribed notions by employing iconographic imagery, objets en flux, and permutations of assemblage/bricolage, to impart meta-static statements which function and communicate on the edges of multi and cross – sensory perception.

Kihlstedt, Jun-Cheng Liu, Virginia Maksymowicz, Jim Peterson, Tedd Pettibon, Dorothy Thayne, Scott Wright BronxArtSpace is pleased to present “Circuitous Routes” featuring the work of 15 artists. Through radically different routes, media and methodology these artists are exploring memory and traces of personal history as tied to and revealed in objects and place. The 15 artists converge in this exhibition from very different perspectives and backgrounds. Jun-Cheng Liu’s “Fragments of Memory” documents selected artifacts that carry stories of life (personal and collective) in the most tangible way, highlighting through trompe l’oeil the fact that the images are only shadows of reality.

On April 4, 2012, the gates of the Andrew Freedman Home will open to the public. The Home was once built to be a haven, a paradise, for the rich elderly who had lost their fortunes. Bequeathed by millionaire Andrew Freedman, the Home provided not only food and shelter but all the accoutrements of a rich and civilized life style – white glove dinner service, a grand ball room, a wood-paneled library, billiard room and a social committee who organized concerts, opera performances and the like.

A museum is nothing without a gift shop. A museum without nudes is really no fun at all. This the best of all worlds: a museum attached to a gift shop with nothing but nudes. In her inaugural exhibition at DODGEgallery, Ellen Harvey offers several strangely beautiful and hilarious explorations of the art nude that both question and exploit our fascination with depictions of our naked bodies to create an intentionally contradictory and often incoherent model of art as a form of desire.

Ramblin Rose can be seen the first Thursday of every month and viewers of the show can expect to be taken back to a time when the term ‘heavy metal’ meant a swingin brass section, where women rolled there stockings down, and the libations were loose!!

hot in Beijing’s Olympic Park in the fall of 2011, this series of photographs by Anja Hitzenberger reveals a visually overloaded fast-food culture that may make some mouths water and other bellies ache. The aggresive graphics and display, offset by the seeming nonchalance of the stall workers, offer an insight into some of the contradictions in contemporary Chinese culture. Hitzenberger has effectively captured the flavor of the time.

Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution assembled by Andrew Boyd with Dave Oswald Mitchell
http://www.powerhousearena.com/newsletters/120405/
04/05/2012-04/05/2012
7pm-9pm

Andrew Boyd and Dave Oswald Mitchell present their guide to creative protest here at powerHouse Arena for an evening devoted to revolutionary pranktivism, featuring talks by contributors and a radical fashion show. About Beautiful Trouble: Prank websites. Militant carnivals. Flash Mobs. Virtual sit-ins. Guerrilla musicals. From Cairo to cyberspace, from Main Street to Wall Street, today’s social movements have a creative new edge. Social activism in the digital age is melding prank and PR, blurring the boundaries between artist and activist, direct action protest and pop art. These principles that make for successful creative action are more common today than we realize—the recent Wikipedia blackout in protest of #SOPA is one of many prominent examples—but their foundations rarely get hashed out or written down. Until now. In the irreverent, activist tradition of Steal This Book and The Anarchist Cookbook comes Beautiful Trouble.

NICK NOWICKI Deadpan

04/05/2012-05/12/2012
-

Nowicki creates images based on personal observations. With simple lines varying in width and intensity and barely readable human expressions, the images appear like doodles, one drawing on top of the other on traditional art materials – paper, linen, and cotton. A longer look at his work reveals that the artist is challenging the viewer to re-examine every day human activities. Nowicki’s creative process involves restraint – the artist avoids drawing any image of interest for as long as possible to allow ideas and pictures to build (and subtract) inside one’s imagination. The first evident stroke represents the distillation of an editing process akin to writing — but unlike a novel, the narrative in these artworks remains elusive. The figures have no faces, their eyes are closed, and the mouths are large open circles. The facial expressions are beyond reach.

Hear how the US government deployed the New York Philharmonic under Leonard Bernstein in an attempt to gain the upper hand against the Soviet Union, as violins and trumpets became weapons in the east-west struggle.

Story Pirates don’t dress as pirates or make anybody walk the plank, but they do steal: they take their inspiration from kids themselves, creating an entire show adapted from stories penned by authors under the age of 12. This literacy group’s official mission is to “honor the words and ideas of young people” by offering a hilarious glimpse of the world as seen through the minds of kids. The edgy style of their sketch comedy musical—mimicking kids’ own unfiltered logic—more closely resembles vintage Monty Python than “Blue’s Clues.” Called “crazy entertaining” by Jon Stewart, the Story Pirates ensemble is made up of some of the most talented professional actors, comedians and musicians in New York and Los Angeles, where the troupe is dually based.

7pm-

Performing and listening to new music is fun because there is a sense of “what’s next.” On the other hand, there are certain works that are so monumental that they are already, in a small sense, “classics.” The talented teens of Face the Music will present two such works: Philip Glass’ 40-minute Glassworks, written for CBS Records in 1981, is a six-movement work of shifting harmonies and pulsating rhythms. Steve Reich’s Double Sextet, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2005, is a more contrapuntal, driving work, almost Bartók-like in intensity. Paired with these two warhorses is Robert Honstein’s lovely Night Mixes, a six-minute meditation on a small motive that echoes some of Philip Glass’ harmonic language.

Highlights of their work will also be screened, along with questions from the audience. Everyone that evening will discover that you can’t stop Keith and Dan—you can only hope to contain them

Monstress introduces a bold new writer who explores the clash and meld of disparate cultures and reveals the lives of people on the outside looking in with rare skill, humor, and deep understanding, in stories framed by tense, fascinating dichotomies–tenderness and power, the fantastical and the realistic, the familiar and the strange. Breathtakingly original, Monstress marks the arrival of a singular new voice in American fiction. Jessica Hagedorn’s edgy and entertaining new novel, Toxicology, centers on the lives of two women who are neighbors in Manhattan’s West Village.

Fleisher/Ollman is pleased to announce F, Steven and Billy Dufala’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will be on view from April 5 through May 12 and will open with a reception with the artists on Thursday, April 5 from 6-9pm. Brothers and artistic collaborators, Steven and Billy Dufala are engaged in a practice that is marked by a fearless embrace of new techniques and commitment to experimentation. Beautifully crafted abstract and representational drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations are often an emotional response to material, process and environment. Consumption, efficiency, cliche, and failure are investigated through humor and exaggeration. On view in this exhibition will be small and large-scale graphite drawings and watercolors that are in dialogue with singular sculptures and a site-specific installation.

Part art history, part economics, part philosophy, Leland Maschmeyer’s talk will take us from a cement building in Boston to a comedy show in D.C. From Surrealist parlor games to recent social experiments that suggest the Surrealists had better insight into economics than most economists do today. All economic, social, and artistic roads have led to SOPA. But they need not end there. As Leland will show, design opens the road ahead. To drive this idea home, all attendees will receive a new book created by 55 artists which speaks to a post SOPA future—one based in the design and economic ideas of the Surrealists. Come prepared to be intrigued, infuriated, and inspired—in that order.

Join us for a lecture with recordings and discussion of a great era of Jewish-Muslim musical collaboration in North Africa and beyond. By the beginning of the 20th century, the phonograph had become a fixture in bars, cafes and theaters across North Africa. With an eye toward a new market, the major international record labels soon moved in and recorded the greatest Jewish and Muslim musicians of their generation. The labels captured sounds that would come not only to define Arabic music in the region but also to preserve a fascinating history of Jewish-Muslim musical collaboration in the Maghreb.

Sperone Westwater is hopefully pleased to announce the fourth solo exhibition of new paintings by Kim Dingle, who is also writing this press release. Paint is more interesting than any other subject… Subjects are useful for paint and for using line. If what is depicted makes the artist laugh then all the more fun for the artist and maybe for the viewer, too – but it is usually an accident. That is all it is. There will be an opening reception on Thursday 5 April from 6 – 8 pm.

Sperone Westwater is pleased to present an exhibition of recent pen, ink, and graphite drawings by Martin Wilner, the artist’s second solo show at the gallery. In his now decade-long body of work, Making History, Wilner creates highly-detailed diaristic drawings based on the monthly calendar. On the verso of each drawing are descriptive texts or images that are integral to the work. Wilner blends elements of cartoon, cartography, text, micrography, and music in an evolving process that transforms news events of compelling personal interest into drawing. Each work coalesces into its own mysterious narrative of the artist’s daily life.

Sperone Westwater is pleased to present a survey of sculptures by Peter Shelton. These corporeal and architectural works from 1989 to the present are both abstract and referential. Their materiality and subject matter elicit a physical, emotional, and psychic engagement – making the visual experience tactile and tangible.

OPENING RECEPTION 5 APRIL, 2012 SIX TO EIGHT IN THE EVENING In the tradition of history painting, Thomas Lail’s large-scale collages chart the persistent dream and the tragedy of our lost Utopias. In Lail’s works image fragments sourced from communes of the 1960s and ‘70s, Modernist structures and idealized communities form the domes and maps of futurist/architect Buckminster Fuller to examine our persistent strivings and ideological failings— haunted always by Goya’s disasters and the gritty realities of Courbet .Lail’s works look to a better, once-dreamed future—perhaps a regained past that never was—to map a fleeting dream of Utopia.

“Dying and birthing for generations upon generation, always arriving at a question, we hurtle through space and time helplessly out of control. Approaching the future at an ever-increasing pace and plugged into one another ingenuously, we perpetually dismantle and assemble each other. Along the way encountering irregular moments of nirvana, keeping us interested and entertained.”- Fernando Orellana

You told me the other night That you Googled yourself And found a boring YouTube video Made by a high school kid with your Name. In the video he said his Name, you said, and it was weird. Somewhere in something That you sang to me that you had written This occurred, something about you having No name, or a name that might as well be no name at all. Or no identity. And the dead Generality of your childhood you’d woken Up from. —Excerpt from “Coeur de Lion,” by Ariana Reines

The exhibition will include works by artists Jason Bryant, JaH- HaHa, Naoto Hattori, Jennifer Murray, Adam Normandin, Johnny Romeo, and TWOONE. “The exhibit is a celebration of 50 years of the Rolling Stones,” says Jessica L. Porter, Founder and Director of Porter Contemporary, “in addition to also being inspired by the proverb A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss.” The proverb has many meanings but one in particular is that those who keep moving are never lacking for fresh ideas or creativity. Porter Contemporary has selected nine artists who fit the meaning of the proverb and are celebrating these artists’ inspirations and dedication through, ‘A Rolling Stone’. The Rolling Stones themselves are examples of the proverb as they reinvented themselves numerous times over the past five decades to become music legends.

Paul Shapiro’s Ribs and Brisket Revue’ is featured on Shapiro’s CD “Essen” which was released last year on John Zorn’s Tzadik Records to rave reviews: As a member of the Microscopic Septet in the 1980s and early 1990s, Shapiro was part of a small but vibrant community of jazz musicians who refused to submit to the narrow, neoconservative ethos of the day, and chose instead to celebrate the entire tradition, from early swing to the avant-garde. You can hear that joyous open-mindedness in all of Shapiro’s subsequent work, including his two previous albums for John Zorn’s Tzadik label, Midnight Minyan and It’s in the Twilight, which subject traditional synagogue melodies to a variety of treatments, from rhythm and blues to modal jazz.

“If you haven’t heard a truly great voice lately, you might want to check out Daniel Wayne. There’s no doubt that distinguishing yourself as a singer-songwriter can be difficult; it’s a style where it’s easy to be mediocre, difficult to be great. But that voice puts to rest the doubters – sweet through the middle and upper ranges and flawless on the high notes, Wayne is instantly recognizable as well as accessible.” -nyctaper

The opening reception will take place on Thursday April 5, 6-9pm. In Some Kind of Nature, five life-size sculptures populate the gallery, somersaulting, back-flipping, balancing, prone and unravelling, suspended from the ceiling and resting on the floor. Tremblay’s recent work pushes her investigation of the human form, which becomes a metaphor exploring existential themes of order and chaos, mortality and the universality of the human condition. In this work, she equally explores sculptural themes of mass, volume, density, equilibrium, dynamism, and positive/negative spaces. She takes inspiration and at times materials from her immediate surroundings.

DOOSAN Gallery New York is pleased to present ‘No Dog Walking on the Roof,’ a solo exhibition of work by Donghee Koo, from April 5 to May 5, 2012. The exhibition features media arts and an installation which invite the viewer to the perception of uncertainty. Koo meticulously visualizes and directs awkward and incomplete stories into her media works, which express the contradictions and absurdities of her ordinary life. When she received a letter from her apartment supervisor saying, “No dog walking on the roof,” she focused on how this equivocal phrase could be interpreted into different meanings. This title defines her working method and the ambiguous interpretations of her works.

Beth Krebs’ installations and videos imagine a new possibility in a real, and often ordinary, place. Her videos use basic materials to make extraordinary interruptions in ordinary spaces. Her work encourages a suspension of disbelief and asks people to notice where they are and, with humor, to imagine what else might be possible there. Krebs has exhibited extensively around the New York City area including Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the Bronx Museum of Art, The Jersey City Museum of Art, Smack Mellon Gallery, the Cue Foundation, Real Artways and the Elizabeth Foundation Project Space

Through her video, photographs and sound pieces, Kyoung eun Kang explores the idea of family, community, and people as a fluid, absorbed, mixed and moving form continuously transforming, expanding, and blending. As she traverses from continent to continent, she explores small, simple everyday gestures that can have a very large meaning, capturing the subtle behaviors that constitute the human experience. Family pee merges to become the sound of a flowing river, a hand reaching out to offer a flower to an unseen recipient becomes an intimate bonding moment between strangers, the weight of a stone as it is lifted in front of a face obscuring the known features reveals familiar yet new identities.

Ed. Varie is pleased to present Apropos of Nietzsche and Aprons, with opening reception Wednesday April 4, 7-10 pm Apropos of Nietzsche and Aprons is a two-man show including artist Walter Fields and Matthew Stearns. Both artists live and work in the East Village, and have previously shown at the storefront that EV now occupies. We are thrilled to welcome them to back for this special engagement. Walter Fields is a painter exploring the colossal impact of Nietzsche’s writings through painting and drawing. In lieu of the idle question ‘Who was Nietzsche?’ it may better serve to ask ‘What is Nietzsche?’ The free spirit, the moralist, the scientist, the anti-scientist, the prophet, or the fool, which Nietzsche do you need? The human eye is able to distinguish over 10,000 shades of color and yet what few names for colors we possess. Likewise in human experience an infinite variety of judgments may deliver conclusions void of judgment. Good, bad and ugly is the shorthand – or the vend

James Fuentes is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition by Berlin based artist Berta Fischer (Born Dusseldorf, 1973) this marks the artists debut in the United States. Having used Plexiglas as a primary material for over a decade, Fischer’s sculptural work stands testimony to a sublime post-industrial dialectic. Assembled and cut permutations of otherworldly material create oscillating effects and dynamic refractions. Panels have been put through a furnace allowing the artist to fold and form her sculptures in a process akin to origami. These compositions, however, are defined in a matter of minutes while the plastic cools into shape. The inherent transparency of the material allows for an almost absolute reduction of form as well as an illusory absence of mass.

7pm-

‘Making Faces’ is a design documentary by Richard Kegler that captures the personality and work process of the late Canadian graphic artist and type designer Jim Rimmer (1931-2010). In 2008, P22 type foundry commissioned Jim Rimmer to create a new type design, RTF Stern, that became the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font. Rimmer was one of only a few who possessed the skills needed to create a metal font. Shot in High Definition, this film documents the creation of a new typeface from the preliminary sketches through the cutting and casting of a single letter. The film offers a unique opportunity to share Jim’s knowledge with the world. Clearly anyone interested in type design, letterpress printing and graphic processes would see Making Faces as something inspiring and essential, as there are few films focusing on these topics.

A limited-edition movie poster; designed by Slater and John Whitlock, will also be on view. The official soundtrack for FOREVER VISION, produced by GEORGIA and Sean Nagin, will be available on cassette tape.

“Expanding upon his 2010 Streetsmart project in which he photographed his photorealistic architectural sets of decaying 70s era New York buildings on the streets of Park Slope using surreal compositional juxtapositions, Peter Feigenbaum’s Streetsmart II: XRO takes the exercise one step further into surrealism and psycho-geography. Feigenbaum has since created a portable module that allows his sets of miniature abandoned buildings to be mounted atop the roof of a car. In late 2011, he scoured the rapidly gentrifying outer reaches of Bed-Stuy and Harlem to find the city’s last remaining derelict boarded up blocks(often marked with the Fire Departments “XRO” tag, signifying “roof out”).

Since late 2009, the West Bank village of Iraq Burin has been subject to land theft and increasing violence from the Israeli military and neighboring settlement of Bracha. In March 2010, the Israeli military entered the village and shot two teenage boys in the street. Counter to Israeli claims that no live ammunition was used, a U.N. report was issued on the incident containing three post-mortem photographs of entry and exit wounds on the boys’ bodies. Excluded from this report and other journalistic accounts is another image: dried blood in the street where the boys fell that spelled “Mohammed.”

Broke House is the new performance by Big Art Group inspired by Chekhov’s Three Sisters. The breakout hit of this year’s American Realness festival, it explores social aspects of modernity and time: the frustration of social progress and the problem of presence in a world compromised by the virtual. From a bare stage the company constructs and dismantles the wooden skeleton of a house as they simultaneously film a documentary of its residents. Issues about the tragic entrapment of nostalgia and the futility of escapist fantasies of the future play out through colliding and disintegrating stories refracted across Big Art Group’s sculptural scenography and lightning fast Real Time Film matrix.

James Cleare, Heather Robb and James Smith first sang together in the last summer of the 20th century. Having just turned 16, the three teens with a common affinity for “oldies” music and harmony spent the better part of the next 2 years playing shows around the Delaware/Pennsylvania area. Influenced as much by their parent’s record collections as they were by what they heard on the radio, their style began to take shape into something a little bit both and a little bit neither. When high school graduation came along, their paths divided; years passed and things changed, but before they knew it they were all living within a few blocks of each other in New York City. The transition back into making music together was as natural as it was surprising – they happily picked up where they had left off years before, with a unique style that refuses to sit comfortably in any genre.

The Kropotkins, a punk Delta blues New York-Memphis collaborative “super group” featuring Lorette Velvette : vocals, guitar Charlie Burnham : vocals, violin Dave Soldier : banjo & violin Dog (Mark Deffenbaugh) : guitar Alex Greene : bass drum Jonathan Kane : snare drum with possible guests Bob Neuwirth and Ron Franklin from Memphis “In 1994, inspired by the fife-and-drum blues of northern Mississippi and the bluegrass inventor Bill Monroe, the iconoclastic downtown composer and scientist Dave Soldier (he’s a professor of neurology at Columbia) formed the Kropotkins, named after the Russian anarchist Peter Kropotkin. While the group is conventional by the standards of some of Soldier’s other projects (he once created enormous instruments for a group of Thai elephants to play), it can nonetheless seamlessly weave a Charles Ives cover into a set of soulful, if sometimes angular, country- or blues-tinged originals.” —- The New Yorker

Rachel Parryʼs work is primarily concerned with belonging, the fallen woman and various representations and deconstruction of the body and mind. Parry creates surreal, raw, powerful and tactile experiences, as she transforms the space between her body and the audience, finding both dark and sometimes humorous moments. Parryʼs art takes risks, embraces experimentation and aims to create questioning on the social issues she highlights. For the past six years, Parry has tested the boundaries of how an intimate relationship can quickly be formed with complete strangers. Parry has chosen to take her practice on a journey to learn from her audiences; as an art-knowledgeable gallery participantsʼ expectation and enjoyment will differ greatly from that of an audience built on bodily pleasure, as found on the club scene.

The Phatory is pleased to announce “Trapped” an installation of works by Charles McGill from April 7 through May 26, 2012, with an opening reception to be held on Friday, April 6, 7 – 9:00 P.M. The Defiant Ones – To The Gallows, 2011 Charles McGill is long adept at constructing theaters of associations. He excels at turning the found object into provocative statements about race and representation that place viewers in a position to re-examine their own relationship to this aspect of American life. On view at The Phatory is a cross section of pieces from McGill’s Skinned series that turn golf objects into narrative devices to reflect upon the “Black” experience and beyond. Golf bags taken apart and reconstructed in Chamberlain-like fashion turn into 3D versions of Philip Guston’s Klan images. Leather and metal form surprising sinister and sometime comic figures.

The current exhibition is an expansion of his 2010 Streetsmart project exhibited at Open Source and the Museum of Arts and Design. Feigenbaum photographed his photorealistic architectural sets of decaying 70s era New York buildings on the streets of Park Slope using surreal compositional juxtapositions, Peter Feigenbaum’s Streetsmart II: XRO takes the exercise one step further into surrealism and psycho-geography.

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, April 6, 7-9pm helper is proud to present its first exhibition, “Like this for a while,” a collaborative project by Monika Zarzeczna and Zerek Kempf. “Like this for a while” draws its title from transitory states and temporary arrangements. Working up to the exhibition, Zarzeczna and Kempf gave attention to impermanent solutions to daily life: getting things out of the way, moving things, fixing matters, tying up, collecting, arranging, and bundling. This exhibition focuses on brief moments of poetic ingenuity when objects are removed from their usual context, combined, and reshaped. Similar to the exhibition itself, these groupings are to be dismantled after they fulfill their use.

Andras Borocz, Marc Connor, Alec Dartley, Anna Ehrsam, Douglas Goldberg, Nancy Goldring, Everest Hall, Colin Hunt, Joshua Mersh, Israel Martinez, Zoe Pettijohn Schade, Christopher Schade, Dan Sutherland Making art directly from observation is one of the oldest of human impulses. The cave paintings from Chauvet, France documented in Werner Herzog’s 2010 film, “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” were painted 30,000 years ago and are a testament to this fact. As a central feature in most art traditions, working from life is sometimes associated with a desire for a previous time. To the contrary, the most compelling aspect of working from observation is that by definition one is engaging in the immediate present. The observed subject shares the same space and time as the artist, and is governed by the same physical laws: light, gravity, time and the change inherent in the material world. These shared limits create a bond between the artist, subject and viewer.

s an initial act, the gallery’s entrance is modified in the form of a hallway or passage to a more personalized or even claustrophobic viewing experience. With light all but blocked out of streaming through the windows, the space becomes sealed, and behind that veil, the potential for a certain cryptic transformation is intimated. Upon entering the exhibition, the viewer stands in the corner of the space, pulled in by the gravity of an austere 5-foot cube. This cube, a polystyrene replica of a public sculpture by Dutch artist Ewerdt Hilgemann originally made of Carrara marble, assumes a roughshod form as a result of the process of being perfectly cut and polished and subsequently rolled down a debris-strewn hill. Michelangelo is said to have remarked that the quality of a sculpture is inherent in its ability to survive being rolled down a hill with its essence still intact. Hilgemann’s coup of turning process into essence is upended by Carron’s ploy of rejection, displacing process/ess

Faust (1994) Live action, claymation, stop motion animation and puppetry are used in this modern interpretation of the classic German tale of Faust, a scholar who sells his soul in return for all worldly knowledge and pleasure: the original “deal with the devil.” Directed by Jan Svankmajer; 97 minutes

SINGLE FRAME: THE SLIDES OF HOLLIS FRAMPTON

04/07/2012-04/07/2012
7:15pm-

This edition of SINGLE FRAME (our ongoing series highlighting slide projections) sheds light on the 35mm slides left behind by filmmaker, photographer, writer, and teacher Hollis Frampton. The subject of a brand new Blu-ray/DVD release from Criterion, Frampton produced a remarkable body of work across many different mediums in his all-too-brief career. Some projects that he began were never completed at the time of his death in 1984 at age 48, and others were only ever tentative ideas awaiting further development. Anthology’s Frampton collection contains multiple bins of curiously organized slides, and while these are definitely not finished works, they perhaps offer us a better understanding of Frampton’s unique working process. We are happy to have Frampton scholars Ken Eisenstein and Michael Zryd on hand to help provide some background and context for these beautiful and beguiling images.

The group includes Grammy-winning percussionist Bobby Sanabria—just one piece of many that makes their fresh take on the Hebraic songbook a “remarkable musical achievement.” (Isaiah Sheffer, Artistic Direct Emeritus of Symphony Space)

A horror play about a mysteriously orphaned brother and sister who fall in queer love with a closeted husband and wife in a world of fractured time and secrets. Inspired by Tori Amos’s seminal 1992 album, Little Earthquakes, artistic team Chris Giarmo and Jess Barbagallo have set out to create a coming-of-age story that never quite comes of age. Good Year For Hunters is a looped reliving of traumatic loss in which memory rewrites history interminably, capturing the very contemporary problem of deferred adulthood.

Due to a wood-eating beetle invasion, a large portion of Coney Island USA’s recently landmarked 1917 building has been severely compromised. The beetles have long since moved on, but the damage left in their wake requires emergency reconstruction. Structural engineers were able to put essential structural supports into place to ensure a safe summer season, but the rising costs of repairs has wiped out CIUSA’s budget.

Hypnotic, elusive New York experimental rock band Psychic Ills took shape in 2003, when they pressed their own 7″ and started playing shows. They’ve remained ambiguous and often hard to classify through the years as they’ve traversed a variety of musical terrain and personnel changes. Recently, Tres Warren, Elizabeth Hart and co. have emerged with a seemingly more streamlined and accessible approach to their original blend of music as displayed on their record Hazed Dream for new label Sacred Bones Records.

Launch F18 is delighted to present Russell Maycumber, Christina Pettersson and Brian Wondergem. A group exhibition organized by the Brooklyn based exhibition program Site95. Russell Maycumber’s work shifts between drawing and sculptural objects that hover between the architectural and figural. His drawings, in particular, are ink and brush on paper made primarily on Post-it notes and torn sheets. The comic-like imagery relates to R. Crumb and Raymond Pettibon but through the use of ready-made and torn paper, images are broken up and fragmented to make unusual hybrid figures, stories, and scenes. Maycumber lives and works in St. Augustine, Florida where he completed his BFA in 2006. Maycumber was included in “Everything Must Go” at Casey Kaplan, New York last summer. He has shown extensively in the Jacksonville and St. Augustine area including Nullspace Gallery, Anchor Gallery, Florida School of the Arts, and the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum.

A loose collection of hot brigands and cold women who have developed a method of breaking old things to make them sound new again, Tik Tok Laboratories hearken back to a time that will most likely never have existed. They are a four to seven all acoustic human band who play, in no particular order, piano, trombone, banjo, harp, and accordian. Their live show is responsible for the creation of several genres: “Redneck Klezmer,” “Junk Rock” and “My Acid Dream, man”. Their recent effort, The Great Concavity, is just out on Copenhagen’s Windsome Losesome Records.

Like the artists they admire, the Sweetbacks are concerned with the traditional subjects of heartbreak, revenge, remorse and staying strong in the face of relationships gone wrong, albeit with a contemporary sensibility. This April, Zara and Emily will be performing a rare tour of shows as a duo, focusing on the tight harmony singing that in the centerpiece of the Sweetback Sisters’ sound.

She will be performing alone with an acoustic guitar. Jackson Lynch, after having wintered in northern Alberta with the Count Abyrnethy of Flatbush, has now descended from the galleries of outrageous glamour to bestow us with his glowing blues. Lorraine Leckie is a no-nonsense singer/songwriter whose music combines honest, heartfelt poetry with beautiful, simple melodies, all performed with an attitude that’s hard as nails and barely concealing of an aching vulnerability just below the surface.
