Check out David Rhodes wonderful review in The Brooklyn Rail of Philip Taaffe's solo exhibition at Luhring Augustine Chelsea!

"What is consistent is that the paintings, as paintings, are anchored through composition and gesture to arrive somewhere here between Paul Klee and Jackson Pollock. The endlessly inventive surface—always abutting the material support—remains frontal and carpeted in pulsating and shifting patterns. Visual depth is continuously variegated with the use of flat silhouetted shapes in a varying succession of planes, that are overlapping and rhythmical. ..."

In this third solo exhibition at the gallery, Philip Taaffe continues to pursue an elegant and precise aggregate of images and technique.

EXTENDED | Janine Antoni’s critically acclaimed exhibition, “I am fertile ground,” located in The Green-Wood Cemetery's Catacombs has been extended through Sunday, December 1.

The installation, described by Jillian Steinhauer in The New York Times as “simultaneously thrilling and haunting, a dichotomy that gets to the very heart of being human,” is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am – 4pm.

On September 21, Janine Antoni will unveil “I am fertile ground,” a site-specific commission at Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery. Marking the Cemetery’s first major artistic commission, Antoni’s work will be installed in the historic underground Catacombs, and will be accompanied by a series of public programs. Visit the link in the bio to find out more.

In “I am fertile ground,” Antoni uses the language of religious icons to pay homage to the body's wisdom. She captures emotionally resonant gestures that remind us that bodily positions invite spiritual states. As the artist describes, "I gild the active embodiment of the spirit, paying reverence to the knowledge of the body itself, buried in muscle memory." Each work enshrines a gesture, rendering it both exalted and fragile.

We are very pleased to announce representation of acclaimed photographer Lee Friedlander, whose prolific career capturing the American social landscape spans over five decades. Through his highly distinguished approach to composition, often incorporating off-kilter framing and disorienting reflections while also foregrounding shadows suggesting his own presence, Friedlander simultaneously reveals and capitalizes on photography’s limitations and possibilities.

The gallery will work in collaboration with Fraenkel Gallery, whose longstanding relationship with Friedlander continues unchanged. A presentation of Friedlander’s work will take place at the gallery in fall 2020; details to be announced later this year. Visit our website to to learn more.

Ritsue Mishima: Lumina, an exhibition featuring all new blown glass sculptures by the Japanese artist, will open next Friday, September 13. A reception will be held the evening of Thursday, September 12, 6-8pm.

At Luhring Augustine, Mishima will debut 25 new works that demonstrate the medium’s inherent tensions. Her sculptures illustrate glass’s constant state of fluctuation, caught between solid and liquid states, as well as stillness and movement. Despite their diverse scales, shapes, and means of intervention, her work is united by its transparency – a divergence from the Murano tradition of creating colorful glass. Relying on the juxtaposition of light and shadow to reveal each work’s complexities, Mishima plays with paradoxes. Transient and eternal, delicate and resilient, uneven and refined, the sculptures are ever-changing.

Christopher Wool: Selected Prints, our latest #ViewingRoom, is now LIVE. Visit our website to learn more.

Christopher Wool’s prints explore themes present throughout his larger artistic practice, such as his gestural style, a restrained compositional approach, and an affinity for adapting existing forms including a self-referential appropriation. As is manifest in Wool’s paintings and sculptures, his approach to printmaking is marked by an interest in combining traditional, mechanical, and digital techniques.

Christopher Wool: Selected Prints brings together works that range from early etchings (1998) to some of his most recent photogravures (2018). Highlighted in this selection is his singular sensibility towards line, a central concern that threads through his work and particularly evident in his recent large-scale sculptures as well as many of his iconic paintings.

🎉Congratulations to Ragnar Kjartansson for winning this year’s Ars Fennica Prize, Finland’s top visual art prize!🎉 The exhibition of works by this year’s candidates is on view at the Amos Rex art museum in Helsinki until September 8, 2019.

Kjartansson was awarded the prize last night by Roland Wetzel, the Director of the Museum Tinguely in Basel, citing the artist's ability to reconfigure established modes of representation, his use of humour and irony in questioning conventions, and the relevance of sound and music as ‘auratic’ aspects in creating specific space-time and collaborative experiences.

Ragnar Kjartansson’s “Bliss” (2019), a twelve hour loop of an excerpt from Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro,” will be performed at the REDCAT - Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater in Los Angeles this coming Saturday, May 25th.

Through extreme repetition, an excerpt from Mozart’s original composition moves from elegant to ironic to ecstatic, finally returning to its original delicacy and joy but freighted with the emotional and physical toll of the experience. “Bliss” is presented as part of the LA Phil's season-long Fluxus Festival, curated by Christopher Rountree in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute.

Full performance tickets are sold out. A limited number of $10 timed standby tickets were made available as of Friday, May 14. Standby tickets will have access to attend one hour of the performance between 1PM and 7PM that day. Access is not guaranteed, and dependent on attendance.

Paintings by Christopher Wool will be on view in “Abstraction: Aspects of Contemporary Art” at the National Museum of Art in Osaka, Japan, opening Saturday, May 25th.

Following the supposed “death” of painting in the 1970s came a renewed interest in the medium and its relation to abstraction in the 1980s. This international group exhibition focuses on the versatile engagements with abstraction, in both painting and sculpture, to have emerged in the last 40 years.
