Silent Partner: William Dilworth, Katarina Jerinic & Emmy Mikelson

Fran Holstrom

Aquarius proudly presents Silent Partner, a three-person exhibition in an ongoing collaboration with Neesh Interactive. This pop-up exhibition considers artists featured on Neesh’s online platform (www.neesh.io), curated by Fran Holstrom. This exhibition presents the work of artists with vastly different practices, related by their interest in our urban landscape, the medium of photography, and the boundaries imposed by both. Please join us for an opening reception featuring newly realized works by: William Dilworth, Katarina Jerinic and Emmy Mikelson.

Opening: Friday, May 3rd 7pm - 9pm
On View: Sundays, May 5 – 19th Noon - 6pm
Cocktails: Sunday, May 19th from 3 - 6pm

“Landscape is our silent partner. Yes the earth can roar and the earth can scream but its’ nature is to quietly exist. So much so that we as people can become disengaged from our dependence on that partnership. Artwork that refocuses us in any way on landscape asks us to come to our senses and commune with, rather than ravage, the earth.”

The above is an excerpt from an email written by artist Bill Dilworth to the curator. For images and full Press Release, please click here.

Alex Paik Solo Exhibition "Caesura" at Praxis NY

Fran Holstrom

RECEPTION: Saturday from 3pm-5pm. I hope that you can make it!
ON VIEW: March 13th - March 16th, from 10 to 6 pm 

CAESURA…metaphor of silence, of breath, the sacred emptiness of
Asian traditions, the pure potential between each thought or action,
our opportunity to transcend.

In the artist’s own words, “My work explores perception, reflected color, and improvisation within structure, taking cues and ideas from contrapuntal music and post minimalism. For the past few years I have been focusing on site-responsive paper installations that focus on a single geometric unit as its base. These installations are temporary and improvised onsite, with each exhibition becoming a different variation of the same piece. There is a tenderness and sadness in both the fragility of the materials as well as the ephemeral nature of the work’s form but at the same time there is an unlimited, even optimistic, potential for recombination.”

THE TWENTY BY SIXTEEN BIENNIAL 2019
Curated in collaboration with Geoffrey Young
February 28 – March 30, 2019

In this third iteration of “Twenty by Sixteen Biennial,” the visual adventure continues. With size as the only constraint, each of the 35 artists in the show is free to invent, explore, challenge and celebrate. Represented by two works each per artist, each gets a chance to show what they do best with imagery, touch, color, figuration, abstraction, hybridity, absurdity, profundity, or none of the above. At the helm of each practice is sincerity, integrity’s first cousin. Thus do the works in this show bop, amble, strut, juxtapose, cruise, clash, propose and cuddle…for all they’re worth. Consider the dialects, the slang, the asides, never forgetting that each work was made for the craziest reasons: necessity and joy.

Opening: Thursday, February 28th, 6-8pm
On View thru March 30th

Featuring artists:
Eric Hibit, Chie Fueki, Cary Smith, Daniel Zeller, Yuri Masnyj, Barbara Friedman, Jenifer Kobylarz, Philip Knoll, Rebecca Chamberlain, Emilie Stark-Menneg, Meg Lipke, Audrey Stone, Trevor Winkfield, Karen Lederer, Douglas Melini, Robert Otto Epstein, Fred Cooper, Sue Muskat, Cordy Ryman, Jennifer Coates, Elliott Green, Andrew Schwartz, Peggy Reeves, Andrea Belag, Juliana Ellman, Hanna Hannah, Alex McQuilkin, Kirsten Deirup, Joshua Marsh, Zachary Keeting, Erin O’Keefe, Mark Olshansky, Elisa Johns, Tim Bavington, Catherine Haggarty

Rashwan Abdelbaki, Last Supper…First Wall (detail), 2017, Acrylic On Canvas

"Executive (Dis)Order: Art, Displacement & the Ban", a group exhibition organized by Artistic Freedom Initiative AFI, at the Queens Museum from December 15 - January 19th, curated by Osman Can Yerebakan.  

Participating artists are 
Rashwan Abdelbaki, Ali Chitsaz, Reem Gibriel, Nadia Gohar, Ibi Ibrahim, Ifrah Mansour, Esperanza Mayobre, Remijon Pronja, Nooshin Rostami, and Asiya Al-Sharabi.

Executive (Dis)Order: Art, Displacement, & the Ban is a group exhibition organized by Artistic Freedom Initiative. The exhibition brings together artists responding to the complex circumstances catalyzed by restricting physical, creative, and intellectual mobility. The exhibition highlights works by AFI-supported artists who have been affected by the travel ban, or Executive Order 13780, alongside artists whose works reflect struggles and experiences of drift and restraint in the face of socio-political instability. Executive (Dis)Orderquestions the definition of ‘artists impacted by the travel ban’ and approaches the issue broadly with works that balance personal and public struggle. Through their works, these artists find the common threads between being restrained from movement and forced into displacement.

Artistic Freedom Initiative, a program of the SDK Foundation for Human Dignity, is a non-profit organization led by immigration and human rights attorneys, providing pro bono immigration representation and resettlement assistance to international artists at risk. In addition to these services, AFI partners with arts and culture organizations, museums, galleries, and performance spaces to create opportunities and platforms for our artists to exhibit or showcase their work. The exhibition is organized by independent curator Osman Can Yerebakan.

OPENING: Friday, November 30, 6-9 PM
ON VIEW: Saturdays and Sundays 1 PM - 6 PM
November 30 – December 16, 2018

Chosen from an open call that attracted a diverse range of artists, Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York is pleased to present an exhibition launching our 2019 Flat File program featuring 38 artists representing an array of approaches towards flat media: drawing, collage, printmaking, and photography. In many cases the selected works are emblematic of an artist’s core practice, while for some this work represents a departure from a larger body of work. The small-scale format presented in our program presents an elastic site for play and exploration.
 

During this exhibition, and throughout the year visitors are welcome to browse and acquire artworks from the flat file. Individual pieces from the program will be selectively highlighted throughout the year. All works can be viewed on our website and a catalog highlighting all artists in the 2019 program is available for purchase on our website and through MagCloud.
 

The 2019 Flat File features works by: Liz Ainslie, Kumasi J. Barnett, Janine Biunno, Theresa Bloise, Kat Chamberlin, Yen Yen Chou, Jonathan Cowan, Molly Dilworth, Ian Etter, Daniel Goodwin, Jennifer Grimyser, Christine Han, Leslie Hirst, Will Hutnick, Amanda Konishi, Lauren McGill, Nick Naber, Jenene Nagy, Naomi Nakazato, Zahra Nazari, Justin Liam O'Brien, Anna Ortiz, Alison Owen, Kent Rhodebeck, Anna Riley, Leslie Roberts, Kate Russo, Ryan Russo, Emilie Selden, Becca Shmuluvitz, Juna Skenderi, Leah Smith, Kalina Winters, Mie Yim, Seldon Yuan, Stella Zhong, Deborah Zlotsky, and Mark Zubrovich.
