We are excited to share that AGG is moving to a new space in the Tribeca neighborhood at 45 White Street in March, 2024.

Come say goodbye to our old space with Angelina Gualdoni “Verso della Terra,” extended until February 2, 2024 with regular gallery hours Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-6pm.

We're thrilled to close our time in Chelsea with the same artist we opened our space with in 2010.

———

Our time in Chelsea has allowed us to build an ambitious program of emerging artists, many of them women, and international artists without representation in the US, all within an intimate space conducive to intellectual inquiry and cultural cross-pollination. Our artists often work in multiple media such as ceramics, textiles, painting, photography, and sculpture with a curiosity in world history, archaeology, and cultural politics from a non-US perspective. The gallery has launched the careers of artists such as Rebecca Morgan, Julie Schenkelberg, and Gudmundur Thoroddsen. Recently, the gallery has expanded its roster to include Katarina Riesing, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Kristen Sanders, and Gabriela Vainsencher.

After 10+ years, our move to the heart of Tribeca, with its density of galleries ranging from cheeky upstarts to international outposts, recalls a similar experience of conversation and community, of what made Chelsea so conducive to a shared sense of purpose.

The new space will debut in March with the first US solo of Czech artist Jakub Tomáš. We are so grateful to our audience, our artists, press, and our fabulous Team AGG both past and present for their support.

We look forward to welcoming you to this new chapter in the spring!

Thank you Joey Lico from The Cultivist for your kind words about Rodrigo Valenzuela in the PHOTOFAIRS In Focus Q&A series!

Excerpt from the Q&A below:

PNY: What artists or exhibitors are you looking forward to seeing at PHOTOFAIRS New York?

JL: Oh, Rodrigo Valenzuela at Asya Geisberg Gallery. He is a force—certainly one of the smartest and hardest-working people I know (artist or otherwise). Outside of the intellectual and visual creativity his practice prioritizes, the sheer agility he has in the making is like nothing else I’ve seen – that’s not to say it doesn’t exist (!) – so I’m always excited when I see he is exhibiting somewhere because I know it will be something new from him and I trust it’s going to expand my perspectives on whatever subject he is addressing.

And Throckmorton Fine Art is presenting a booth of photography focused on women in Latin America, which includes photographs by incredible artists such as Graciela Iturbide and Tatiana Parcero, who’ve I’ve admired for the better part of my career. Curatorially, I see a lot of conversation points that could be had between Asya Geisberg Gallery’s booth and Throckmorton Fine Art’s… I’m eager to see if that plays out the way I imagine!

We are thrilled to announce the representation of Gabriela Vainsencher!

Vainsencher recently presented "Epic, Heroic, Ordinary" at Asya Geisberg Gallery with New Discretions, which received press from The Brooklyn Rail, Art Spiel, Ceramics Monthly, and Ceramic & Arts Association of Israel - 1280° Magazine, and was featured as an Artforum "Must See."

In Fall 2023, Vainsencher will be in a group show "Fruits of Labor" at Apexart, curated by Bruna Shapira, and will be participating in the Jerusalem Biennale. AGG will present her work at Untitled Miami, in December 2023.

Gabriela Vainsencher’s porcelain sculptures and wall reliefs combine archaeological and anatomical motifs that have appeared throughout her interdisciplinary practice of drawing, video, and photography. As an immigrant twice-over, she often experiments with materials and languages and uses images and objects as metaphors. In her recent work, Vainsencher draws inspiration from mythology, ancient Greek ceramic vessels and Roman frescoes, and archetypes of motherhood. Tropes such as the clock and the hourglass are conflated with the body’s biological time, and fertility symbols and reproductive organs coexist with less obviously maternal body parts such as hands and ears. The monumental multi-part installation “Mom” is both a literal snake-monster and a wielder of many manufactured tools that enable her maternal tasks. Vainsencher portrays motherhood as nuanced and multi-faceted, and both agelessly symbolic and specifically contemporary.

Congrats to Melanie Daniel on her current solo exhibition "The Way of Flowers and Ghosts," at Hiro Hiro Art SpaceSpace in Taipei, Taiwan, on view July 15 - August 20, 2023!

"In the ice-covered Arctic and Antarctic, ice caps are melting at an unprecedented speed. Vast expanses of seawater are progressively encroaching upon the land, extending even to Melanie Daniel’s solo exhibition “The Way of Flowers and Ghosts” at Hiro Hiro Art Space. The seawater nurtures life but also foreshadows calamity. Employing oil paint and a psychedelic palette, Melanie Daniel constructs a fantastical post-apocalyptic realm where flowers, forests, man-made objects, and traces of human activities are quietly ensconced in flooded mangroves or fantastic forest clearings as though existing harmoniously in ripples of a reverie." - excerpt from exhibition text by Hui Chang

Tell us about your creative process, from the moment of ideation...

"Recently I have been using Procreate on my iPad to draw into photos I’ve taken – as a way to figure out composition, textures, colors, patterns. As these are refined, I will choose final images I want to paint. Then I paint – when I say “paint” I mean I dye – using brushes to paint dyes into the silk. Sometimes, depending on the image, I will use a batik process, which is using hot wax as a dye resist. Once the paintings are done they are steam-set. After they come out of the steamer I start the embroidery process. Depending on the painting and scale, this process can talk anywhere from a week to 4 months. All the embroidery is hand-done, and I usually use about 3 different types of stitches. When the embroidery is complete, I stretch them and the piece is officially finished." - Katarina Riesing
