We are thrilled to celebrate Luciana Pinchiero for being part of “Magic in Vienna’’ exhibition at Museums Quartier Wien in the context of International Pride Month.

“I wanted to bring together different moments in history with a variety of aesthetics and expressions of sexuality. As a q***r artist, I want to offer a visual narrative in which binary and heteronormative assumptions about gender and expressions of love are questioned and many manifestations of love are celebrated,” explains the artist.

Congratulations Luciana, this is a remarkable milestone— happy pride!

Simonette Quamina’s work is celebrated for its rich storytelling and evocative representation of Afro-Caribbean culture. Her large-scale collage prints speak to the artist’s intersectionality and multicultural background. Growing up within the borders of Canada, Guyana, Saint Vincent, and the United States, Quamina examines themes of migration patterns, displacement, and labor within the framework of Afro-Caribbean spirituality and aesthetics.

Today we present you with her latest work, this limited print of 5 only editions, created while attending the acclaimed artist residency Dieu Done in New York, which features a delightful scene of children at play. Each detail is meticulously crafted, inviting viewers to step into a world of domesticity and innocence. It captures the essence of childhood through playful and detailed imagery, reflecting Quamina’s cultural heritage.

Since 1981, Praxis has operated its own print house, where we create hand-made screen prints, a nearly extinct artisanal craft in our country. It is an honor for us to continue producing this type of print, aiming to spread Argentine and Latin American art.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the artists who trust us and collaborate in the task of bringing our country’s art to new places.

Here are some of the screen prints made by us.

05/25/2024

We are pleased to share that the artwork “Via Crucis: When the Sea is My Land” by Scherezade García, acquired in 2021 by Jorge Perez, founder of PAMM (Perez Art Museum Miami), is now exhibited at the Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland! The show is part of the traveling exhibition “WHEN WE SEE US: A Century of Black Figuration in Painting”, which first opened at Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town, South Africa in 2023. The show is co-curated by Koyo Kouoh, Zeitz MOCAA Director, and Tandazani Dhlakama.

The exhibition’s narrative decenters violence and trauma, offering instead a joyful, uplifting, and deeply engaging contemplation of works spanning a century, and thus celebrates how artists from Africa and its diaspora have imagined, positioned, memorialised and asserted African and African-descent experiences.

We want congratulate the entire museum team and both curators (, ) for their dedication and hard work in making this exhibition possible. And express our profound gratitude to Scherezade García for continuing to trust us.

The exhibition will be on view until the end of October. Don’t miss it!



Nos complace compartir esta increíble noticia con ustedes. La obra Via Crucis: When the Sea is My Land de Scherezade García, adquirida en el año 2021 por PAMM (Perez Art Museum Miami), después de ser exhibida en Zeitz MOCAA en Ciudad del Cabo, Sudáfrica, fue presentada este jueves, como parte de la muestra “WHEN WE SEE US: A Century of Black Figuration in Painting” en Kunstmuseum Basel, Suiza, curada por la increíble Koyo Kouoh.

Este proyecto se centra en una narrativa que descentraliza la violencia y el trauma, ofreciendo en su lugar una contemplación alegre, edificante y profundamente cautivadora de obras que abarcan un siglo.

Queremos expresar nuestro profundo agradecimiento a todo el equipo del Museo y a ambas curadoras ( , ) por su dedicación y arduo trabajo para hacer posible esta exposición. Y especialmente a Scherezade García por seguir confiando en nosotros.

La muestra estará disponible hasta finales de octubre. ¡No te la pierdas!

Josefina Co**ha E. inaugurated “Excursiones Nocturnas”, (Nocturnal Excursions), curated by Matías Allende Contador, her first solo show in Buenos Aires, Argentina, last week.

“Excursiones Nocturnas” invites us to a wasteland of natural and fantastical creatures, represented in small paintings and volumetric textiles attached to structures as if they might take flight at any moment. These works are hidden behind waxing and waning moons, as they are never exposed to full clarity; they need just enough glow to allow us to view them from our dry landscape, to observe that tremulous and humid region, more humid than the swampy city of Buenos Aires.

Congratulations Josefina! It’s always a pleasure to work with you.

Last days of Beat Around the Bush by Sofía Quirno on show.

“...Quirno’s touch is light and curious, and her decisions are funny. She invites us to laugh at the impossibilities she presents, keeps us loose by showing how much pleasure there is to be found in taking paradoxes apart and putting them back together with more room to live in. The laughter can take the body’s place while we figure it out.” - Gaby Collins Fernandez

Available until Saturday, don´t miss it!

04/25/2024

Praxis is pleased to present Unbound, a solo exhibition by the Mexican artist Beatriz Morales curated by Esenija Bannan. The show will be open from Thursday, May 9 to Saturday, July 6, 2024.

The opening reception will be on Thursday, May 9, from 6 to 8 pm.

When focusing on Beatriz Morales’ colorful paintings and textile art installations made from agave fibers, one returns -in a way- to the origins of her art: Her works are worlds of color influenced by her home country of Mexico, in which the viewer is literally pulled in and enveloped by softness and color. In her agave installations, Morales breaks with artistic conventions and attempts to explore new possibilities as an ambivalent medium between sculpture, architecture and textile art. Never conforming to one style, the exhibition Unbound gives us a glimpse of the range of works that the artist created for her first solo exhibition in New York: From abstract portraits to her stitched paintings surrounded by voluminous and soft installations made of agave fibres, using intense colors and breaking down naturalistic forms.

Curated by Esenija Bannan

On Delfina Braun’s birthday, we share her work and celebrate her curiosity and exploration of the nature of the human mind and soul.

Delfina studied esoteric disciplines as a path to self-knowledge and universal consciousness. Over the past decade, she has delved into the biological aspects of the natural world, focusing her studies on herbology, medicinal plants, and fungi.

Happy birthday, Delfina! We are proud to represent you!

Last days to appreciate Sofía Quirno´s solo show.

“For Quirno, painting is like these language games, where signification and objectification flip back and forth. There is a degree of precarity to this activity, as if the whole enterprise risks tumbling down, which is the point. Why paint if not to talk about how our reality is, in fact, contingent; hinged on conventions of thinking that have affected the material conditions of gender, nature, and image. Quirno’s paintings use these conventions as props, rendering the question of representation as DIY theater.” - Gaby Collins Fernandez

More about Edo Costantini´s photographic pieces

“A flower is not a flower is a photographic journey. An encounter with the sublime in nature. As the artist walks, voyages, meanders through his everyday landscape, he finds himself getting lost in the forest. Diving into an introspection. This daily stroll near his home in Katonah, New York, grows as an experience and an artistic practice, a reverie, an inimitable moment, an opportunity to witness greatness in the simple, to see the invisible and create new images. The series of photographs taken between his first sojourn to Woodstock in 2013 and now, within the framework of this methodical life, reflects on the measuring of oneself in time in an evolving world. Costantini, naturalist and ascetic, photographer and musician, and navigator, works under an imperative to record a world calling out for remembrance, from
the threshold of oblivion. For a trace to be left, not forgotten.”

04/11/2024

“Like everything else in these paintings, gender is hard to locate. They are “about” gender the same way one might beat “about” a bush. Gender, femininity, and feminism seem to be the true subject of the work, but Quirno refuses them a landing spot, lest they become fixed and safe (like we tend to want them). Even the p***y glyphs which literally mark the territory of this exhibition lead us not to the body but to the body as language and idea, which is to say, how the body can be taken from itself. And yet, it cannot be escaped. Quirno writes in her journal, “Body can’t get out of/shadow can’t get rid of,” as though materiality and displacement require one another.” - Gaby Collins Fernandez

Beat Around the Bush by the argentina artist Sofía Quirno now on display.

“This exhibition by Sofía Quirno is made from a series of planes and images, held together by hinges. References are hinged onto paintings, paintings hinge on walls, images are split across the middle as if hinged. Nominally, these are paintings of landscapes with implications of bodies, although looking at them, it’s hard to know where to start talking about the landscapes. They unfold like landscapes, maybe, with hinges as horizons.” - Gaby Collins Fernandez

DARLENE CHARNECO: FIELD MAPPINGS—WEAVES AND TOUCHMAPS

GUILD HALL
158 Main Street
East Hampton, NY 11937

Saturday, March 9- Mon, May 6

Darlene Charneco is the 2020 Artist Members Exhibition Top Honors Awardee, chosen by Susan Thompson, associate curator, Guggenheim Museum.

Charneco uses various materials and techniques to create a distinctive visual language and mapping system, evoking memory, connection, and evolution. The Weaves and Touchmaps are part of an ongoing series of artworks inspired by dreams, visions, nature studies, and the common thread of ritual found in many cultures and religions.

Each mixed-media wall piece is created through the meditative process of hammering nails, one by one. The resulting aggregations of nails represent positive wishes and visualizations for our present and future Earth. Charneco regards this as a “writing” process in which the nails are tangible objects that symbolize renewed hope, determination, and faith in the accumulation of many small but important actions through time. Each piece is composed of units that are woven together into tactile topographic fields that gradually reveal microcosms in which complex organisms evolve, taking on ever-shifting roles, identities, and collective movements. Charneco highlights the power of individual acts to effect change when compounded through our interconnectedness, both physical and virtual.

This exhibition is organized by Guild Hall’s Director of Visual Arts, Melanie Crader.

Today: Beat Around the Bush by Sofía Quirno

“Some premises to keep in mind:
A painting is not a body, but a body might be a page.
An image is one of many kinds of text.
When is a door not a door? When it’s a jar.
A gesture is a bush, image, p***y, letter.
Any of these can become each other, but it’s hard for anything to become a body because you keep running into “the body.”” - Gaby Collins Fernandez

Join us today for the opening reception from 6 to 8pm.

Praxis is pleased to present Beat Around the Bush, a solo exhibition by Argentinian artist Sofía Quirno. The show will be open from Thursday, March 14, to Saturday, May 4, 2024.

Join us at the opening reception on Thursday, March 14, from 6 to 8 pm.

“Beat about the bush” comes from medieval game hunting, where the beating was meant to rouse the prey hidden within indirectly, so as to shoot it safely, for sport or sustenance. Why stop the beating and the bushes when the alternative is instant death, as opposed to something subtler and more drawn out?”

Last days to see Bad Posture by Luciana Pinchiero

“Posturing is the deceptive performances we engage in to make others think we are more successful, more put together, tougher, or even more feminine than we really are. What’s the deception in Bad Posture? Is it sculpture’s ability to transform stone into flesh? The fissures of authorship? The desire to make a woman, including the self, into one’s own?” - Text by Jillian McManemin

Don´t miss it, on display until Saturday 9th.

Beat Around the Bush by Sofía Quirno - Coming soon

“What is a landscape, even? Is it something that exists outside, or ideas and hopes that come from inside that we impose on a space? If it’s the latter, doesn’t that make every “landscape” like a child, born from the p***y of a fertile imagination? Then what’s with all the women in landscapes, the association of landscape with femme embodiment, from early glyphs to earth works?” - Text by Gaby Collins Fernandez
