This is the final week to see Jerome Lagarrigue’s ‘Shoreline’. The standout exhibition is on view through Saturday, June 15, 2024. 

Lagarrigue centers his new body of work on observations of coastal life in the Caribbean. Lagarrigue is keenly perceptive of the electric hues that occur naturally here, as if the subjects of his paintings are lit from behind. Stark juxtapositions of colors and surfaces - unevenly lit facades, different shapes and shades of sky, water and vegetation - offer a myriad possibilities for bridging figuration and abstraction. Hidden in the paintings’ undertones are the unspoken stories of the citizens of these coasts. 

Please stop by if you have not yet, you do not want to miss this show! 💛

We are just 𝓃𝒾𝓃𝑒 days away from the closing of Jerome Lagarrigue’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, 𝓢𝓱𝓸𝓻𝓵𝓲𝓷𝓮.

Stark juxtapositions of colors and surfaces - unevenly lit facades, different shapes and shades of sky, water and vegetation - offer a myriad possibilities for bridging figuration and abstraction. ​Hidden in the paintings’ undertones are the unspoken stories of the citizens of these coasts, many of whom trace their heritage to the West Coast of Africa. It is the coastal population who have to adapt to new living conditions due to their direct exposure to extreme weather increasingly caused by climate change. 𝕃𝕒𝕘𝕒𝕣𝕣𝕚𝕘𝕦𝕖’𝕤 𝕝𝕒𝕟𝕕𝕤𝕔𝕒𝕡𝕖𝕤 𝕔𝕠𝕟𝕧𝕖𝕪 𝕒 𝕤𝕦𝕓𝕥𝕝𝕖 𝕥𝕖𝕟𝕤𝕚𝕠𝕟 - 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕓𝕠𝕦𝕟𝕥𝕚𝕗𝕦𝕝, 𝕓𝕖𝕒𝕦𝕥𝕚𝕗𝕦𝕝 𝕤𝕙𝕠𝕣𝕖𝕝𝕚𝕟𝕖 𝕚𝕤 𝕥𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕖, 𝕨𝕚𝕥𝕙𝕚𝕟 𝕣𝕖𝕒𝕔𝕙, 𝕪𝕖𝕥 𝕚𝕞𝕡𝕠𝕤𝕤𝕚𝕓𝕝𝕖 𝕥𝕠 𝕘𝕣𝕒𝕤𝕡; 𝕚𝕥’𝕤 𝕒 𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕥𝕣𝕚𝕔𝕥𝕖𝕕 𝕤𝕡𝕒𝕔𝕖 𝕤𝕦𝕘𝕘𝕖𝕤𝕥𝕖𝕕 𝕓𝕪 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕡𝕒𝕚𝕟𝕥𝕚𝕟𝕘𝕤...

“Joseph’s collaboration with Fridman Gallery began a year ago and has since flourished into a productive partnership. “Fridman understands how I work and my practice to some degree,” says Joseph. This mutual understanding has enabled a seamless and insightful curation process. The gallery’s passion and responsiveness have provided a fertile ground for Joseph’s works to be thoughtfully presented and appreciated.”

Today we revisit 𝑃𝑎𝑝𝑒𝑟 𝑇𝑜𝑤𝑛 (2018), a series of smaller oils on paper by Alina Grasmann. “Paper Town” depicts the facades of Agloe, NY, a town that began as a copyright trap — a deliberate typo made by map-makers to catch copyright infringement. The series exemplifies Grasmann’s sensational ability to blur fact and fiction.

The series is featured in an artist’s book titled “Papertown” and includes texts by Mirna Funk and serious Pira. Link to shop is in our bio ✨🔗

We hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend! Fridman Gallery reopens with our normal hours of operation on Tuesday,  May 28, 2024. 

On view through June 15 is Jerome Lagarrigue’s 𝒮𝒽𝑜𝓇𝑒𝓁𝒾𝓃𝑒, the first solo exhibition with the gallery by Lagarrigue. An accomplished portraitist recognized for powerful interpretations of his subjects’ interior, psychological spaces, Lagarrigue centers his new body of work on observations of coastal life in the Caribbean. This geographical restriction and the seemingly mundane activities depicted in the paintings allow the artist and his viewers to focus on incremental, subtle changes in light and color.

These are your last few weeks to visit Athena LaTocha’s “The Remains of Winter” at The Green-Wood Cemetery.

“Inspired by Green-Wood’s collection of trees and its legacy as a place of remembrance, LaTocha has created The Remains of Winter. She cloaked the remains of two massive European beech trees on Battle Hill in thin sheets of lead, a material that has been used for centuries in coffins to slow the decomposition of bodies. By hand-forming this malleable metal onto the trees, LaTocha captures the unique details of their shapes and forms, even as they slowly degrade beneath the lead.”

LaTocha’s tableau of site-specific sculptures has been on view since October 2022 and will come down on June 9, 2024.

Lagarrigue centers his new body of work on observations of coastal life in the Caribbean. His solo exhibition “Shoreline” is on view at Fridman Gallery through June 15, 2024.

“Lagarrigue wants younger artists to know that if they have a dream and vision, it’s essential to work hard towards it, while also mastering their craft. “In turn, it inspires me to see young students honing their tools and craft in the beginning stages of their journey. That to me is the cycle of legacy building.” – Milette Millington in conversation with Jerome Lagarrigue

Installation images of Jerome Lagarrigue’s stunning solo exhibition, “Shoreline.” ✨

Lagarrigue centers his new body of work on observations of coastal life in the Caribbean. This geographical restriction and the seemingly mundane activities depicted in the paintings allow the artist and his viewers to focus on incremental, subtle changes in light and color. The scenes unfold slowly – fishermen looking out onto expanses of water and sky, grocers tending to their inland shops, people going about their everyday life.

On view through June 15, 2024

𝐓𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐞𝐤𝐢𝐰𝐚 (b. 1990, Seke, Zimbabwe; lives and works in London, UK and Zimbabwe) emerges from a lineage steeped in the tradition of stone sculpture, an ancestral knowledge passed down through generations. This heritage finds its origin in the artistic legacy of his father, Kennedy Musekiwa, a testament to Zimbabwe’s rich artistic tapestry spanning several centuries. Drawing upon deeply personal found objects, Musekiwa’s creations serve as a direct continuum of the oral histories that have endured and adapted through centuries of turmoil. Informed by syncretism, a strategy of preservation and survival found within oral traditions, Musekiwa’s work serves as a manifestation of this codification. 

𝐅𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐬 𝐉𝐨𝐬𝐞𝐩𝐡  (b. 1989, Adamawa, Nigeria; lives and works in New Heaven, CT, USA) painting practice fuses his life experiences in Nigeria and the U.S. Moving from figuration to abstraction, he evades straight-line narratives, focusing instead on complex impressions and emotions embedded in the human psyche. The paintings, also reflect Fidelis’s personal history, one of pain and love – separation from his native village, the loss of his father at a young age, and his brother’s prolonged service in the Nigerian army fighting Boko Haram. The distortion of the subject matter resonates with the emotional interplay of both familial pride and fear of loss.

Terrence Musekiwa emerges from a lineage steeped in the tradition of stone sculpture, an ancestral knowledge passed down through generations. Informed by syncretism, a strategy of preservation and survival found within oral traditions, Musekiwa’s work serves as a manifestation of this codification. He deftly merges and actualizes contemporary methodologies, philosophies, and materials, intertwining them with the profound wisdom accrued over generations past.

Fidelis Joseph’s painting practice fuses his life experiences in Nigeria and the U.S. Moving from figuration to abstraction, he evades straight-line narratives, focusing instead on complex impressions and emotions embedded in the human psyche. Uncanny figures emerge from landscapes of bright color blocks, transparent paint and bare canvas. His rapid and energetic brushstrokes bring palpable tension.

On April 17, Rikers Island hosted a ceremony unveiling a mural that 𝐃𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐠𝐚 𝐌𝐜𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐧 co-created with people in custody. “Correctional Health Services, part of NYC Health + Hospitals, commissioned 𝘛𝘰𝘸𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘴 𝘢 𝘉𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘛𝘰𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘳𝘰𝘸! to adorn CHS’s Reentry Services Center, which detainees pass through upon release. It’s McCannon’s first mural inside a correctional facility.

Dindga McCannon’s history with public art and engagement stretches far and wide. “McCannon painted several now-destroyed murals for City Arts in the early 1970s, and another on Fridman Gallery’s upstate location in 2021. As usual, she sought outside input to inform her work for Rikers Island. “Even though the population is transitory,” she said, “wherever public art is installed, the people who have to live with that public art should have a little bit of say.”

While we recognize this project as a symbol of positivity and hope, we also understand deeper systemic reform is a necessary step for long-lasting and humanitarian change.

A central theme in Ramakrishnan’s work is time itself, expressed through mythology, physics, and evolution. Symbolic representations of animals and humans are utilized to depict celestial phenomena in mythology. 

Ramakrishnan builds up her paintings slowly, in layers – embedding circular handwritten mantras in translucent acrylic, and lushly painting the figures with impasto oils, gold leaf and rhinestones.

In his work, Jungerman explores the intersection of pattern and symbol in Surinamese Maroon culture, the larger African diaspora, and 20th century Modernism. Placing fragments of Maroon textiles and other materials found in the African diaspora—the kaolin clay used in several religious traditions. Jungerman presents a peripheral vision that enriches our perspective on art history!

Remy Jungerman lives and works in Amsterdam and New York. He attended the Academy for Higher Arts and Cultural Studies in Paramaribo, Suriname, before moving to Amsterdam where he studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy.

In Heather Dewey-Hagborg’s new collaborative project, “𝐍𝐨 𝐒𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝𝐬” the artist works closely with Amos Wells, an inmate on death row in Texas. “No Seconds” is the world’s first museum memorializing the death penalty and sharing the experience of prisoners who await ex*****on on death row. 

“No Seconds” is on view at the University City Science Center in Philadelphia as part of the exhibition “A Future Without Guns”

An accomplished portraitist recognized for powerful interpretations of his subjects’ interior, psychological spaces, Lagarrigue centers his new body of work on observations of coastal life in the Caribbean. This geographical restriction and the seemingly mundane activities depicted in the paintings allow the artist and his viewers to focus on incremental, subtle changes in light and color. The scenes unfold slowly – fishermen looking out onto expanses of water and sky, grocers tending to their inland shops, people going about their everyday life.

Katsuyo Aoki is best known for her𝔦𝔫𝔱𝔯𝔦𝔠𝔞𝔱𝔢𝔩𝔶 𝔣𝔬𝔯𝔪𝔢𝔡 𝔞𝔫𝔡 𝔠𝔬𝔪𝔭𝔩𝔢𝔵 𝔠𝔢𝔯𝔞𝔪𝔦𝔠 𝔰𝔨𝔲𝔩𝔩𝔰. Working almost exclusively in white porcelain, Aoki evokes a feeling of spiritual tranquility and awe. Her labrynthine objects are hand-sculpted in bone-white porcelain whose bright simplicity underwrites the works’ complex, bourgeoning details.

Aoki’s stunning piece, “Predictive Dream LVI” (2018) is featured in our current multimedia exhibition “Snowdrops” and is on view through April 27, 2024 ✨

Today we highlight the work of Fidelis Joseph, whose paintings, alongside works by Terrence Musekiwa, are featured in our presentation at Independent Art Fair this coming May. ✨

Fidelis Joseph’s painting practice fuses his life experiences in Nigeria and the U.S. Moving from figuration to abstraction, he evades straight-line narratives, focusing instead on 𝕔𝕠𝕞𝕡𝕝𝕖𝕩 𝕚𝕞𝕡𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕤𝕚𝕠𝕟𝕤 𝕒𝕟𝕕 𝕖𝕞𝕠𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟𝕤 𝕖𝕞𝕓𝕖𝕕𝕕𝕖𝕕 𝕚𝕟 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕙𝕦𝕞𝕒𝕟 𝕡𝕤𝕪𝕔𝕙𝕖.
