Drew Maillard Solo Show: “Living In Interesting Times”
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.

BRIAN M. VIVEROS: RETURNING ART TO THE UNCLEAN @ LAST RITES.
Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept 3rd, 7:00pm-11:00pm. Show runs Sept 3rd thru 25th, 2011.
Known for his strong and sensuous depictions of women, Brian M. Viveros is a master of contemporary iconography paying homage to the femme fatale. While he almost exclusively paints portraits, within the expressions of his women is conveyed such deep emotion and overwhelming sexuality that his work is undeniably erotic. Often without even a hint of nudity, the viewer is seduced with a mere pout and gaze from his subject’s faces.
In what will be Brian’s second showing at the gallery, the opening will feature an all new collection of original paintings, as well as special rare prints from the artist’s own collection; poster giveaway and signing; live “Smoking Army” performance; screening of Brian’s films along with his new short, and much more.

Roots of American Music producer Spike Barkin starts the day with an onstage talk with the pioneering alumni of Sun Records, whose stories and recollections are a historical treasure trove.
Radio Happy Hour: The Final Episode
August 12, 2011
Radio Happy Hour, the radio show not on the radio, has announced the end of their 2+ year run as the Village’s best variety show. After a US tour, appearances on public radio, feature articles in NY Post, Nylon, and many other places, the hit comedy show is ending its run. “Secretly, I was always surprised that anyone ever came to see a murder mystery on a fake radio show, or that anyone ever agreed to be on the show. Apparently, New Yorkers have a real appetite for idiocy,” says show host and head writer Sam Osterhout.

Generative crowd sourced sculpture with music performances @ Devotion.
Opening: Friday, August 12th, 2011.
Sol LeWitt knew that artists of many diverse types use simple forms to their own ends. Musician and multimedia artist, Morgan Packard believes that simple rules, when allowed to unfold, create the splendor of the world. In Euclidean geometry the simplest non-curved flat shape is the triangle, and the simplest non-curved three-dimensional shape is four triangles connected by their edges—the tetrahedron. In this crowd-sourced artwork the public is invited to create tetrahedrons from recycled office paper and a few pieces of tape while musicians perform. Under Morgan’s direction the participants will attach the vertices of the tetrahedrons to create a constantly expanding sculpture, filling the gallery with a geometric wonderland intersected by sonic vibrations.

Saturday August 13th6th Annual Celebration of Progressive Culture
Now a Manhattan mainstay, the Dissident Arts Festival was founded in upstate NY in 2006 with a primary goal of establishing an annual showcase of politically progressive music, poetry and performance art—perhaps the only such vehicle in the nation. This Festival has sought to bring together a wide variety of sounds and styles, tearing down boundaries, bending rules and infusing the arts with the strongest, most radical activism, where folk-protest song meets free improvisation and contemporary composition. Featured among our past performers and speakers were actor/raconteur Malachy McCourt, folk legend Pete Seeger, poet Louis Reyes Rivera, revolutionary hip hop group ReadNex Poetry Squad, protest/garage band The Last Internationale, labor luminary Henry Foner, topical singer Bev Grant, ‘anti-folk’ singer Lach, jazz artist Ben Barson and filmmaker Kevin Keating (“Giuliani Time”). And we presented tributes to Woody Guthrie, Paul Robeson, Bertolt Brecht and Phil Ochs along the way. As of 2010, the Festival became affiliated with NYC’s Brecht Forum, a center of Left education and culture which has proven itself the perfect host of the Dissident Arts Festival. This year, Dissident Arts focuses on the improvisational and modernist heart of Protest Music while also featuring topical folk/acoustic performance, radical film and revolutionary poetry.

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY APRIL 16, 2011 FROM 6:30 – 8 PM
ON VIEW FROM APRIL 16 – MAY 29, 2011
Muriel Guépin Gallery is pleased to announce “Juxtaposed” a new group show featuring the artwork of Béatrice Coron and Robert Szot. The opening reception is Saturday, April 16th from 6:30-8pm, and will be on view through May 29th.
Béatrice Coron’s paper cut images tell stories inventing situations, cities and worlds which all have their own logic and patterns. These compositions include memories, associations of words, ideas, observations and thoughts that unfold in improbable juxtapositions. Coron researchs collective memories and myths, questioning the notions of identity and belonging.
In her site-specific installation called “drifting Worlds” (displayed in the dramatic street level window of the gallery) the window is used not to see out but in, placing the spectator in an outsider/insider situation. Shadows, reminiscent of film noir and voyeurism, leaves room for multiple interpretations.
Béatrice Coron’s work has been purchased by major museum collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum, The Walker Art center and The Getty. She’s had numerous solo shows in galleries in the U.S.A., France and Japan.
Robert Szot will present his latest paintings called BLS (roman conflict). Szot’s oil paintings are wrestling with the conflict of impermanence. Szot’s methodology is primarily one of problem solving. Fine details are sometimes marred or sacrificed until the final composition has reached a more dynamic and complex resolution.Thin layers of activity and line drawing peer through a more dominant foreground of broad color fields. This process provides a depth that becomes sharper in definition over time.
Curator Robert Bunkin writes: “Robert Szot’s abstract paintings seem to come from the urban environment. They are reined in by architectonic structures, broad fields of color are interrupted by smaller gestures and idiosyncratic forms…his work has a palimpsest effect, where layers of previous activity bleed through the final layers of paint.”
Robert Szot lives and works in Brooklyn. He has exhibited throughout America and internationally. Szot has shown with The Painting Center and Melody Weir in New York and with the Saatchi Gallery in London. His work can be found in private collections worldwide. A portion of the artist’s proceeds will be donated to Rett Syndrome research.
