Take a look behind the scenes as Joan Linder shares the amazing process for creating her Amazon Prime boxes. She carefully handpicks cardboard from her recycling, paints each box with ink and watercolor, and crafts the tape by hand using mylar. The artist then skillfully cuts and folds up the boxes to create the final masterpiece.

Come see Linder’s work in person at the opening reception for her exhibition “Fulfillment” on Friday, June 21st from 6:00 to 8:00 pm!

🐦 National Pigeon Appreciation Day 🐦

Join us in admiring Malia Jensen’s “Endless Pigeons,” a ten-foot-tall bronze tower of eight oversized pigeons perched atop a concrete plinth. With its playful repetition, it cheekily nods to Brancusi’s “Endless Column.”

We think it’s beak-yond amazing! So don’t wing it, come see this fly sculpture for yourself.

“Endless Pigeons” is on view at The Reser, an arts center in Beaverton, OH.

🌟 UPCOMING EXHIBITION 🌟 | Mary Lucier
Catskill Art Space ()

Don’t miss Mary Lucier’s solo exhibition at the Catskill Art Space from June 29th to August 24th, 2024! 📅✨On view will be two video installations: “Equinox” (1979/2016) and “Leaving Earth” (2024)

Created almost fifty years earlier and remastered in 2016, “Equinox” is a subversive meditation on nature and video. Lucier made the work by filming the sun for seven consecutive days, effectively tracking its movement as its rays burned marks in the camera’s vidicon tubes. With its strange hues foreshadowing the effects of the 2023 Canada wildfires, “Equinox” underscores the impact of global change.

“Leaving Earth” is inspired by the final journal of Lucier’s late husband, painter Robert Berlind. It merges words, pictures, and sound in a unique and immersive experience, reflecting the disarray in a dying man’s mind through random juxtapositions and repetitive thoughts.

Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins in Group Exhibition “The Summer Games” | KMAC Contemporary Art Museum 🏛️

Open through August 18, 2024 🗓️

KMAC’s group exhibition includes Marman and Borins’ “Balancing Act,” a playful twist on the classic claw machine arcade game. Visitors can use the joystick to rearrange vibrant geometric shapes into unique compositions. Handcrafted and covered in wool felt, these colorful forms are endlessly reconfigurable. Adding to the excitement are paintings of imagined sculptural combinations, blending geometric abstraction with a touch of surrealism.

“The Summer Games” aligns with the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in Paris, exploring the intersection of art, sports, and recreation. This exhibition showcases how these themes inspire new aesthetic and intellectual paths.

We are pleased to present the new book “John Wood and Paul Harrison: 30 Years / 30 Works”

This book is a comprehensive compilation of Wood and Harrison’s remarkable 30-year journey as artists, showcasing their diverse range of works including videos, sculptures, and more, spanning from the early 1990s to the present day.

John Wood and Paul Harrison have built a reputation for their innovative and thought-provoking creations. Their collaborative practice blends elements of performance, sculpture, and film, often infusing humor and wit into their explorations of everyday life. Their art invites viewers to see the world from a fresh perspective, often presenting the familiar in an unfamiliar way.

“John and Paul’s genius lies in presenting you with something that is recognizable. Relatable. Almost. There is always a shift, a twist, or a transformation. Things are never quite what they seem, yet they are strangely close.” - Cristin Tierney

🎨✨ Highlight for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month: Ralph Pugay 🌺

Pugay’s art reflects the diverse tapestry of human experience—drawing inspiration from religious, historical, and contemporary themes, all seen through the modern lens of TikTok and social media. His lively compositions and vivid colors unveil the intricacies of our culture, exposing its idiosyncrasies and tensions.

In “Natural Beauties,” Pugay shows several caterpillar-women inspired by Filipino beauty pageant queens. They wear crowns, bright pink lipstick and red high heels. Each carries a bouquet of flowers as they move through a lush garden with a waterfall and reflection pond. The juxtaposition of the ladies with these scenic views is a celebration of beauty in all its forms.

“It’s an homage to both critters and the process of transformation and emergence.” - Ralph Pugay

💬💥 From trending news to cultural phenomena, Pugay’s creations resonate with the essence of our shared consciousness, infused with humor and insight.

SOLO EXHIBITION
“Jorge Tacla: A Memoir of Ruins” | Coral Gables Museum 🏛️
Now - October 27 🗓️
Curated by Yuneikys Villalonga

Now through November at the Coral Gables Museum in Florida, you can explore Jorge Tacla’s iconic paintings series like “Injury Report” and “Identidad Oculta,” where buildings and urban spaces take center stage, bearing witness to the scars of societal traumas. The exhibition, titled “A Memoir of Ruins,” presents a selection of the artist’s paintings from the last couple of decades. From seismic events to social upheavals, Tacla’s paintings capture some of the most inspiring, sobering, and even grim moments that have played out on the global socio-political stage.

05/09/2024

A key subject in Shimomura’s practice is his self-portraits, where pop culture meets traditional Japanese art. In “AMERICAN VS. JAPANESE #6,” the exploration of identity, assimilation, and the intersection of Asian and American cultures is on full display. Shimomura immerses himself in a battle of cultures, with samurai fantasies adding an intriguing layer. 🗡️ Can you see Darth Vader sporting traditional Japanese attire? 👀 Meanwhile, in “JAPAN,” amidst the playful chaos of Hello Kittys there is one figure wearing glasses and painting. It is another form of Roger’s self-portraiture.

Current exhibition highlight: Roger Shimomura’s “JAPAN,” 2012

The painting “JAPAN” is inspired by the West’s history of appropriation and commodification of Japanese heritage. It depicts the iconic Hello Kitty character adopting various conventional Western and Asian identities: baseball player, farmer, geisha, chef, baker, and even the Statue of Liberty. Always portrayed expressionless, voiceless (as the character has no mouth), and wearing a large bow, Hello Kitty is docile, passive, and diminutive. The composition’s all-over pattern resembles that of a sticker sheet, further connecting the painting to themes of preadolescent naïveté.

OPENING NEXT WEEK: “All American”

Roger Shimomura’s paintings, prints, and theater pieces address some of the sociopolitical issues connected to Japanese American ethnicity. Through the juxtaposition of contemporary America and traditional Japan, Shimomura employs images from both cultures to create a complicated layering of pictorial information and social observation.

The exhibition opens Friday, April 26th at 10:00 am.

“Capitalism and colonialism made it very easy for money, resources and capital to travel seamlessly. And law and policy and armies were set up to make that happen. But people were tightly regulated, and that legacy continues today. The AAPC actually implicitly challenges that whole notion and is bringing together the types of people who will be part of upsetting, turning over and changing that.” – Dread Scott

We’re less than a week away from EXPO Chicago ()!

Every day in our booth ( #149), Tim Youd will be retyping “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury. The one-time banned book imagines an America where books are outlawed and destroyed.

According to the American Library Association, book bans are at an all-time high. In 2023 the number of books targeted for censorship increased 65% over those challenged in 2022.

Like many artists, Tim Youd is alarmed by the growing trend toward censorship, in no small part because his performances revolve around a deep appreciation for literature. His presentation at EXPO Chicago invites visitors to reflect on the stories that the United States has censored in years past (many of which are celebrated and highly influential novels today), to consider who is being served by censoring novels now, and imagine a future where today’s banned books are required reading.

“Maureen O’Leary: ROMA”

The ROMA series represents the culmination of O’Leary’s experiments with flattened and distorted perspectives, lyrical and gestural brushwork, non-local color, and complementary colors (such as green and red or orange and blue). The artist distills her compositions into major shapes and essential elements with idiosyncratic details.

You’ll want to get up close and personal with Maureen O’Leary’s new painting series “ROMA” at the Dallas Art Fair.

The works from “ROMA” were completed during and after O’Leary’s residency at the American Academy in Rome. Taking the city and its inhabitants as her subject, the artist’s paintings are a tribute to the blend of past and present permeating Roman life. Central themes in the series include “macchine, alberi, monumenti, donne, e vita” (cars, trees, monuments, women, and life).

Visit us in booth F16 in Dallas, Texas between April 4-7!

We are thrilled to announce a new performance by Tim Youd at EXPO Chicago () in April!

Youd’s ongoing performance series, the “100 Novels Project,” involves the artist retyping entire novels on two sheets of paper, which are then repeatedly run through a typewriter until the words become illegible. In Chicago, he will retype Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel “Fahrenheit 451,” which imagines an America where books are outlawed and destroyed. Every day at the fair, Youd will set up his typewriter and type the book, until he finishes the novel on the last day. Surrounding the artist in the booth will be other novels he’s previously retyped that were also banned, such as “The Jungle,” “The Man with the Golden Arm,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and “Slaughterhouse Five.”

Our current exhibition “Cross Cut” features work by Debbi Kenote and Mark Sengbusch.

Both artists are deeply influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement, particularly the storytelling potential of textiles, ceramic, and woodworking. Their practices unite abstract forms with an individualized approach to color. Although both artists’ works exhibit naturalistic elements and observations, their newer paintings reveal their fascination with architecture and architectural elements such as tessellations in tiles and sidewalks.

“Both [“Slave Rebellion Reenactment” and “The All African People’s Consulate”] really connect people. Let’s say you’re from Kenya living and working in Venice; let’s say you are one of the people who cleans up in a restaurant or something like that. And you are made to feel not very welcome, and you’re often looked down upon. Maybe having this community embrace you—you get a passport that says you’re part of this broader community—I think that’s really important.” — Dread Scott

In a recent interview with Mo Laudi (), artist Dread Scott () touches on how community for Africans and people from the African diaspora is at the heart of his latest performance projects, namely the upcoming “All African People’s Consulate” and the 2020 “Slave Rebellion Reenactment.”

The premise of the Consulate is the opposite of most existing immigration chokepoints; while those often function to constrain admittance and movement, this Consulate facilitates ways to let one in. It is an incubator for connection, community, and visionary revolution.

Visit Scott’s “All African People’s Consulate,” organized by The Africa Center and Open Society Foundations, and curated by Paul Bright of Wake Forest University, this spring and summer in Venice.

“All African People’s Consulate” is a Collateral Event that will be a part of the 60th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia – “Foreigners Everywhere.”

“Particles and Digital Serfs” is a two-person exhibition featuring Janet Biggs () and Itziar Barrio (), curated by Jane Ursula Harris () and presented by NEW INC () and Onassis ONX (.onx).

The exhibition showcases multichannel, transmedia works exploring the intersections of science, art, labor, and robotics. Biggs will present “Seeing Constellations in the Darkness Between Stars,” a 2018 video work that combines footage from the Mars Society’s University Rover Challenge with drummer Jason Barnes’ () performance at Georgia Tech’s Center for Music Technology. This work examines the limits and potential of robotics, juxtaposing the challenges faced by Mars rovers with Barnes’ drumming abilities as he uses a prosthetic arm controlled by AI. Through this juxtaposition, Biggs raises questions about human-machine interactions, the nature of exploration, and the boundaries of physical and technological capabilities.

The exhibition opens on Thursday, March 21st with a reception from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. A new collaborative performance between Biggs and Barrio will also be presented on Saturday, March 23rd from 6-8pm (performance starting at 6:30pm), followed by a reception.

Meet the artist: Mark Sengbusch ()

Mark Sengbusch’s tiled works represent the artist’s return to painting after five years spent primarily concentrating on sculpture. The wood tiles in these works are painted and placed in specific patterns that reference ancient ceramic tiles and stone work. The colors in “Blue Waves,” for example, are inspired by 700-year-old Iranian tiles from the Abu Dhabi Louvre’s collection. Sengbusch describes the sensibility of his work as “Pop meets Folk.” Many of the colors and patterns in his work are influenced by “old faded vinyl record covers from the ‘70s, videogames and neon fashion from the ‘90s, ceramic glazes and faded medieval tapestries, bright flowers and graffiti on box trucks in Bushwick.”

Sengbusch’s paintings and sculptures are featured in our upcoming exhibition “Cross Cut.” The artist will be present at the opening reception on March 8th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
