Catch Nicolas Moufarrege: Recognize My Signs @queensmuseum before it closes this Sunday, February 23
.
#1 Nicolas Mougarrege, Title Unknown, 1984 - 1985
"Moufarrege's work often contain homoerotic content. When juxtaposed with a neoclassical male torso, Moufarrege's reproduction of Roy Lichtenstein's painting Look Mickey (1961) hints at the possibility of sexual encounter. Because using a needle and thread is often associated with women's labor, Moufarrege's embrace of embroidery can also be understood as a challenge to heterosexist norms."

#2 Le sange du phénix (The Blood of the Phoenix), 1975
"This dreamlike image evokes wartime Beirut. Eyes watch over fields of blood-red color, a defiant fist, and the Lebanese flag's cedar tree. An emerging phoenix suggests renewal classical columns with bases reveal the profile of a human face repeat in Nikki, 1976"

(All text from the queens museum)
.
Nicolas Abdallah Moufarrege (1947–1985) was an artist, critic, and curator born in Alexandria, Egypt to Lebanese parents. As an artist he exhibited in France, Lebanon, and the United States. He was extremely influential in New York; his writings about the Lower East Side arts scene for publications such as New York Native, Arts Magazine, Flash Arts, and Artforum are credited for bringing early attention to galleries in the LES.

.
Eventually, I wrote down in my notebook, what holds us? I wanted to remember hands: her hand reaching for her collar. His hand holding his hand, the body curled into itself. I thought about how it feels to hold yourself, the way my own hand will rest on my own hip, the way my legs will fold into each other when I sleep alone. Along the walls – slim, solitary figures, so towering or tenuous, I wondered when they would fall. In the middle – sculptures encased in their makings, as if still waking from the stone that, like sleep, had coiled around them in the night.

Each will focus on an idea or concept.

We hope that their perspectives open up ways of seeing.

Both in terms of "room," a place wherein things are found—and in terms of the in-between, as that which keeps them apart—the works in NK gallery exist in space like space exists within them: pronounced, gaping, a dense void.

I lingered on the openings to the flesh in Silver's sculpture, the absence underlying the body like the white of paper beneath his pencil strokes; Monahan's sculpture seen through a pierced screen, a closely knit, rigid blanket of holes; Matter's photos in their bright backbone of light against the dark, at once elongated and narrowed figure of the human in Giacometti's work—each a different embodiment of space—its enigmas, the riddles it poses us.

In Matthew Monahan’s “Black and Blue/Us and Them,” a large fissured bust rests captured within a meshed metal encasing that recalls a dance-hall loudspeaker. The figure, set back into the lith, appears in a ghostly form like a physicalised digital rendering or perhaps she is something, we, as viewers, are imagining. The figure exists within its figurative stone, almost as a 3D shadow. Across the gallery, Herbert Matter’s photograph, “City Square,” captures Giacometti’s walking and standing figures, which crop up like supine shadows stretching across pavement at the end of a day, made vertical. Here, Matter’s photograph itself functions as a fixed shadow of Giacometti’s constructions.

Matthew Monahan's, Black and Blue/Us and Them, on view next week. Pushing the expressive potential of the human form in their studios through similar materials and techniques, Giacometti, Silver, and Monahan’s works are neither straightforward portraits nor monuments. Rather, their drawings and sculptures are meditations on being.

The Bronx Museum booth at UNTITLED art fair is not to be missed.

Untitled Art Fair opened in Miami last night, and past the architectural fuchsia cutout that marks the tent’s entrance it was apparent that this was a fair with institutional airs.

Jeffrey Deitch on His Grand Return to His Storied SoHo Space | ARTnews

In 1957, Cameron (1922-1995), had one of her piece, Peyote Vision, in Wallace Berman's show at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. After only two weeks of being open the L.A.P.D. Vice Squad closed the show because works by both artists were considered lewd. Cameron made the decision to never show at a commercial gallery again.

Cameron's first solo show in New York City was with Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery in 2007.

Cameron: Cinderella of the Wastelands will be open through October 17th at Deitch Projects, NYC

A selection of Cameron works are on view at Nicole Klagsbrun's office, 526 W 26th st rm 318, New York NY

The Cameron Retrospective Might Be the Most Stunning Show This Fall

"[Cameron's] infatuation with magical “blood rites” and her ongoing obsession with spiritual enlightenment are manifest in her work, which favors attenuated genderless creatures engaged in nefarious surreal activities."

The dark Expressionistic drawings of Cameron—artist, poet, muse, sidekick of L. Ron Hubbard—jump out from the gallery walls.

Don't miss a word: Catch the conversation between Lee Quinones and Glenn O'Brien, now online!

Surrounded by Lee’s show of works spanning his careerthe two New York icons looked back at how the Puerto Rico-born, Lower East Side-raised artist became a teenage subway-art phenomenon in the mid-70s, a “recovering graffiti artist” who showed at Barbara Gladstone and other top galleries, and the introspective painter he is today.
