A.I.R. GALLERY

A.I.R. GALLERY Advocating for women in the arts since 1972. In the late 1960's, the amount of gallery and museum space displaying the work of women artists was minimal.
(49)

The majority of women artists found it incredibly difficult to find any institutions willing to exhibit their work. In response to this problem, a group of strong minded female artists founded Artist's In Residence (A.I.R.) in 1972. A.I.R. was the first art cooperative for women artists, by women artists in the United States.

Currently on view in Gallery II: "TRACES: 28 Days in Elizabeth Murray’s Studio," an exhibition by 2020-2021 A.I.R. Fellow Kyoung eun Kang. "TRACES" is a durational video performance made in the former studio of the late U.S. American painter Elizabeth Murray.⁠
✨⁠
“As I touched the objects that were once held by Murray, brushing my hand gently over the walls and walking barefoot across the wooden floor, I was deeply moved and inspired by the space. The history of the accumulated paint strokes on the walls and the palpable sense of Murray’s creative energy in the air compelled me to build an intimate relationship with the studio, hoping that in doing so I might forge a spiritual connection with the artist herself.”

Currently on view in Gallery I: A.I.R. New York Artist Tomoko Amaki Abe’s solo exhibition "Respire."
🌬️⁠
Our current situation has in many ways forced us to pause and take a deep breath. In this series of works, Abe pays particular attention to the shifts in perception that have taken place as a result, especially in regard to the heightened symbiotic relationship between our body and our environment.
🌬️⁠
Many of these works were inspired by the intricate interplay between ecological and human systems, evidenced in the smoke of the Australian bushfires traveling full circle around the globe to return to the continent or the world’s waste, discarded into the sea, finding its way to the ocean gyre. The works in the exhibition are Abe’s attempt to sketch and record ecological landscapes as they unfold in front of her eyes, capturing various departures and returns in the cycle of life.

[A.I.R. + BATURU] TOMORROW 9AM EST we will be hosting the fifth session “Displacement/Anything Helps” by Rosina Ladieri (@ziniyogini) from Maxine Henryson’s talk series “Expressions of Contemporary Feminist Artists and their Practices.”
📦
In this lecture, Rosina Lardieri will discuss her ongoing project "Anything Helps" which is a completely unscientific investigation into homelessness in her immediate neighborhood. Based on connectivity and interpersonal relationships formed on the streets the project uses signs purchased from the unhoused, photographs, interactional videos, and her own handwritten signs, to create a narrative of acknowledgment while exploring themes of displacement, the vulnerability of bodies in public space, the traces left behind and the transformation of the public into private space.

Felice Grodin’s Terrafish Diagnostic 2521 is now on view as part of The Scalability Project: Cacophony of Troubled Stories.
🌊
Terrafish Diagnostic 2521 is a speculative video about the evolutionary adaptation of the Physalia physalis, a species closely related to jellyfish and commonly known as the “man o’ war.” The Physalia physalis lives in colonies composed of many physiologically integrated zooids, which together form clusters that work as singular organisms to claim and terraform the South Florida waterfront. Grodin sets one colony, named Terrafish, 500 years in the future, where a drowned Miami exists more as an intertidal zone, submerged by the effects of sea-level rise, than as the hyper-capitalist city it is today.
🌊
Terrafish Diagnostic 2521 reflects on the pervasiveness of invasive species in the unstable South Florida ecosystem, impacted by the human-made consequences of climate change, and imagines a future overtaken by these uncanny creatures. Mapping the ecosystem they destabilize through the lens of architecture and urban design, the project renders moments of tension and vulnerability between human and non-human species. With archival footage and sounds, AutoCAD drawings, and augmented reality, it analyzes the mutability of rapidly shifting ecologies of nature, architecture, and urban development.
🌊
Terrafish Diagnostic 2521 expands on the narrative of Grodin’s 2017–2018 Augmented Reality commission, Invasive Species, at the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), which was curated by PAMM’s Jennifer Inacio.

NOW ON VIEW: The Scalability Project: Cacophony of Troubled Stories, featuring "A Contaminated Language" by Melanie Hoff.
✨⁠
How might you experience an exhibition alone yet feel the presence of others? For the physical iteration of Cacophony of Troubled Stories, Hoff presents an installation that is driven by the traces and marks we leave behind when we browse online. Projected within the gallery, the work is a collective accumulation of highlighted text and projected drawings made by visitors while browsing the Scalability Project website. "A Contaminated Language" is an exercise in collapsing the space between an online and a physical exhibition and between individual socially-distanced visitors. How can the digital facilitate gestural contaminations of movement and ideas even as our bodies are held so far apart?⁠
🔹⁠
The Scalability Project: Cacophony of Troubled Stories is an online exhibition and publication that includes artworks and interviews with and by adrienne maree brown, Anna L. Tsing, biarritzzz, Daria Dorosh, Felice Grodin, Gordon Hall, Klau Kinky, Melanie Hoff, Naama Tsabar, Nahee Kim, Rebecca Jordan Young, and Tabita Rezaire. It will materialize as a one-month installation at A.I.R. Gallery between March 19–April 18, 2021.⁠

NOW ON VIEW: TRACES: 28 Days in Elizabeth Murray’s Studio, an exhibition by 2020-2021 A.I.R. Fellow Kyoung eun Kang. TRACES presents Kang’s latest work, a durational video performance made in the former studio of the late U.S. American painter Elizabeth Murray.⁠
✨⁠
Inspired by the acclaimed artist’s workspace in Washington County, New York, Kang’s improvisational and playful performance explores studio practice as a daily ritual. Kang’s work reactivates and reinterprets Murray’s studio through the lens of an artist of a new generation, drawing out ideas of absence and presence, distance and intimacy, materiality and spirituality. Murray left traces of herself in her studio, and Kang, in turn, takes them for a score, embodying these remnants of Murray’s creative activity in order to give them new life.⁠

[A.I.R. + BATURU] TOMORROW 9AM EST we will be having the third session “The Book as Primary Form” by Lauren Simkin Berke from Maxine Henryson’s talk series “Expressions of Contemporary Feminist Artists and their Practices.” Noted that all future sessions will take place at 9 AM due to the beginning of daylight saving!
📓
In this lecture, Lauren Simkin Berke will discuss their personal practice of making books and zines, as well as placing that work within the context of contemporary sequential art in book form that focuses on both real and imagined memories. Memories are the stories we hold from personal experience that create the myth of ourselves, our families, and our communities; this will be a look at how artists bridge and explore the lines between experiential, emotional, and generational memory.

Felice Grodin’s Terrafish Diagnostic 2521 is now on view as part of The Scalability Project: Cacophony of Troubled Stories. Grodin envisions South Florida and the Everglades 500 years into the future, in which the land exists in its uncontaminated, natural state before the government began draining the land in the 20th century.
🌴
The Kissimmee, Okeechobee, Everglades watershed once again follows its uninterrupted flow, inundating most of Florida’s southern tip. Cultural institutions like the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) as we know them today no longer exist—back transmissions created by PAMM describe the dynamism, mutations, and adaptations of the extant wildlife as they occupy the old hanging gardens of the museum.
🧬
Grodin subverts physical and mental landscapes to highlight the capricious and undulating boundaries between subject and object, mapping out and investigating moments of chance, tensions, vulnerabilities, and the inevitabilities of these landscapes.

FINAL WEEKEND: 2019-2020 A.I.R. Fellow Victoria Manganiello's solo exhibition "Lost Perimeters" closes this Sunday, March 14! The show includes a selection of the artist’s recent woven paintings, varying in color and scale and displayed for the first time as a single, overlapping installation.⁠
🧵⁠
With textiles spanning the walls, occupying corners, and spreading onto the floor and ceiling, the exhibition addresses the interstitial spaces—both physical and metaphorical—that are often unacknowledged or fade into the background. In the installation, individual textiles cede their edges to others, disavowing autonomy in favor of an uninterrupted intermingling.⁠
🧵⁠
Don’t miss your opportunity to see this exhibition! Visits to the gallery are by appointment. To book an appointment, visit airgallery.org or find us on @seesawmap!⁠

FINAL WEEKEND: The 14th A.I.R. Biennial, "An A-historical Daydream" curated by Jasmine Wahi, closes this Sunday, March 14! Don't miss your opportunity to visit the gallery exhibition and screen the accompanying online video program (also closing Sunday). For the Biennial, Wahi asked artists to examine time, history, and future in new and radical ways. ⁠
💥⁠
Histories are often singular narratives: they are agendized and unbalanced, and often promote a binary idea of ‘us vs them’ or ‘conqueror and conquered.’ In this exhibition, artists reflect upon the popular histories that we have been taught, and then radically imagine a space/time dimension in which colonialism and hegemonic structures either never existed or existed in a different form. ⁠
💥⁠
On-site artists: Jo Ann Block, Marcy Chevali, Jin-Yong Choi, Molmol Kuo, Marina Leybishkis, Nikki Luna, Helina Metaferia, Marianna Peragallo, Nitcha Tothong (Fame), Luis Vasquez La Roche, Noa Yekutieli⁠
💥⁠
Online artists: Nikesha Breeze, Caroline Garcia, Heesoo Kwon, Bridget Leslie, Catherine Lie with Caroline White-Nockleby, Darice Polo, Andrea Ray, Nitcha Tothong (Fame), Carrie Sijia Wang, Hana Zhang⁠

We still have copies of Other People's Houses by Gordon Hall available for purchase on our website—get your copy today via the link in our bio!
🛋
Through their practice, Hall examines the sociopolitical dynamics that arise in the bonds we develop with ourselves, objects, and each other through sculpture, performance, and writings, raising questions about the parables of the relational, personal, and political. “Other People’s Houses” continues this exploration and consists of images taken by screengrabs of the domestic interiors behind people present with Hall in Zoom meetings during the early months of 2020, followed by a short text in which they describe their interest in capturing these tender and voyeuristic images.
🛋
Proceeds from the sales will be donated to Project EATS, a neighborhood-based project that uses art, urban agriculture, partnerships, and social enterprise to sustainably produce and equitably distribute essential resources within and between communities in New York.

Other People's Houses by Gordon Hall is published by A.I.R. in collaboration with Walls Divide Press commissioned for The Scalability Project. Head to scalabilityproject.org to read a PDF of the publication.

[A.I.R. + BATURU] If you are reminiscing about the dazzling photographs by Maxine Henryson and the sensuous paintings by Jane Swavely from the last session, you can join us TOMORROW at 8 AM EST to hear the two artists discuss more about their work!

In the second session, Maxine Henryson (@maxinehenryson) will discuss the process of creating luminous painterly photographs about place and the everyday. Exhibitions and artist books are spaces that offer an opportunity to sequence and edit disparate elements to construct an experience that challenges our perceptions of how we see the world and feminist photographic image-making is a strategy that can potentially transform the patriarchy to a feminist culture. The underlying theme is interconnectivity, interdependence and how we are all part of one entity.
