(27)

Miles McEnery Gallery presents exhibitions by a multigenerational roster of artists whose works are linked by their drive to discover the points at which the paths of pleasure and knowledge intersect. Sometimes that happens organically: minds and bodies working in concert as insight and enjoyment dovetail gracefully. At other times it’s awkward. And unsettling. And consequential. Conflict enters the picture when what you feel and what you know tug you in different directions. That tension creates experiences that compel you to reorganize your relationship to the world—starting with your self, which is, hopefully, a fairly complex constellation of experiences and imaginings, facts and fantasies, realities and relationships. The art exhibited at McEnery highlights the multilayered nature of identity, not to mention history and humanity. It also leaves people free to experience things for themselves. And once that individual experience has begun, it invites you to determine what that experience means for you, but not just to you alone. Freedom and responsibility—or independence and interconnectedness with others—take shape before works that do not strive to provide answers to life’s big questions so much as to draw visitors into conversations with themselves, with their friends, and with strangers. Both internal and external, these dialogues can be insightful, and they can also be infuriating. They are often both. At their best, they sharpen perceptions, excite the imagination, stimulate thinking, and change behavior by making us aware of realities previously unseen. Prescriptive art is nowhere to be found. Nor are one-dimensional works, single-issue statements, or academic rehashes of ideas that have been thoroughly worked through by previous generations. Painting and drawing predominate. This is not because these media are historically important or intrinsically valuable, but because they are basic: simple technologies that record, often in exceptionally nuanced ways, the gestures and maneuvers of a consciousness in action (making decisions, adapting to circumstances, working through rough spots, and coming to conclusions—only to start all over again in the next painting or drawing). The drama—of striving to do something and then striving to do more—opens up all sorts of stories. Each story has lots to say about all sorts of situations, artistic and otherwise. Often both. Both abstract and representational, the works at McEnery invite viewers into worlds within worlds. Familiar details give way to strangeness. What you thought you knew turns out to be different from what you actually know. Strangest of all, your journeys through the overlapping, intersecting worlds in these works do not take you away from the real world so much as they take you more deeply into it—more attentive to subtle differences and inspired to share such discoveries with others.

OPENING TODAY Liat Yossifor: Communicating Vessels opens today at our 520 West 21st Street gallery with extended hours until 7pm. The exhibition will remain on view until 19 June and is accompanied by a fully illustrated publication featuring an essay by Paris-based scholar Susan L. Power.

“The canvases, which both contain and emanate a dynamic tension, convey what the French poet and founder of the Surrealist movement André Breton termed 'convulsive beauty.' At mid-career, Yossifor has honed her faculties with a single-mindedness, which itself might appear to be at cross-purposes with the emancipatory essence of her oeuvre.” - Susan L. Power in “Communicating Vessels”

Also opening today are exhibitions Bo Bartlett at 525 West 22nd Street, and ‘Light’ curated by Rico Gatson at 511 West 22nd Street. ‘Light’ marks the inaugural exhibition at Miles McEnery Gallery’s third permanent Chelsea location, and features works by Trudy Benson, Beverly Fishman, David Huffman, Rico Gatson, Warren Isensee, Tomashi Jackson, Aaron Johnson, Baseera Khan, Chris Martin, Carrie Moyer, Jason Stopa and Letha Wilson.

“In lively, capacious paintings that envelop vast domains, Liat Yossifor embraces duality by embodying its nuanced, multifaceted, and often conflicting nature. Apparent antimonies manifest variously through the materials, forms, and language comprising her works. Reaching a crescendo with this latest body of work, Communicating Vessels, the artist demonstrates an assuredness and acute control concomitant to jubilant release.” -Susan L. Power

UPCOMING We are delighted ‘Light' curated by Rico Gatson opens Thursday 13 May at our newly renovated 511 West 22nd Street gallery. ‘Light' marks the inaugural exhibition at Miles McEnery Gallery’s third permanent Chelsea location.

The impetus for 'Light' derived from a quote by twentieth-century German-American painter Hans Hofmann, proclaiming ‘In nature, light creates the color. In the picture, color creates the light.’ This exhibition articulates a belief in the fundamental power of light, in its various forms, to convey the magic of art.

Motivated by an enduring appreciation for these artists, Gatson brings together a diverse group working across a variety of mediums: Trudy Benson, Beverly Fishman, Rico Gatson, David Huffman, Warren Isensee, Tomashi Jackson, Aaron Johnson, Baseera Khan, Chris Martin, Carrie Moyer, Jason Stopa and Letha Wilson. Gatson connects these artists through the ways in which light transcends in their work.
