Emmy Mikelson at Wassaic Project - Summer Exhibition

Change of State
Closing Reception: Saturday, Sept 22, 2018 at 7:00 PM
On View: May 12 - Sept 22, 2018

As the Wassaic Project enters their 10th year of programming, they are thinking more about the cultural lens through which one views art. What do we each bring to a work when we consume it? This year's exhibition, Change of State, showcases art created during a time in which many people in our country have felt divided, angry, vindicated, or confused — and the works reflect these changes and challenges. Consider the individual pieces as you move through the space. You will see elements of nostalgia, fantasy, failure, hope, fear, love, anger, and chaos. Consider who you are, not the groups you identify with, and attempt to welcome each artist's intentions without your own biases. While not all of the works are political in the traditional sense, it is worth considering the charged political climate in which they have been created and the rural community in which they are being viewed.   --from the press release

Podcast Interview with Alex Paik

Fran Holstrom

Alex talks to the Remix about why he co-founded TSA with friends in Philly and how it grew to be a network of spaces in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and Chicago. We learn about the nuts and bolts of running the four spaces including dollars and cents, dispersing the workload, and why TSA chose to be a nonprofit.  We also learn how Alex balances his art practice with his many administrative roles.

Stretto
Opening Reception: September 7th, 7-9pm
On View: through September 22, 2018

In classical music a stretto is when the subject of a fugue is repeated in close, overlapping succession, usually at the end of the piece. Similarly, Paik’s fugue-like modular wall installations focus on one shape or unit as its subject which is then repeated in different orientations as the piece is hung. The way that the units layer and form other compound shapes mimic the way a fugue’s subject is transposed, inverted, and folded into itself. His work explores ephemerality, reflected color, and repetition as a generative compositional process.

The title is also a nod to the many overlapping roles that Paik has as an artist, director of Tiger Strikes Asteroid, curator of Satellite Art Show, and chief curator at Trestle Gallery.

We are very excited to be expanding our network! This summer we will be joined by Amir Hariri, trained as an architect, Emmy Mikelson whose recent work is inspired by a trip to the Amazon Rainforest, Vanessa Irzyk, our first artist from outside NYC, and Colin Prahl who may just get an honorary PhD.

We ran an open call earlier this year, and asked three artists to join Neesh, based on their submissions. Thanks to all who applied!

Zoom In, Zoom Out
Opening Reception: June 27, 7-9pm
On View: June 27 - July 21, 2018

Zoom In, Zoom Out is a group show featuring works by Capucine Bourcart, Christopher Rose, Elizabeth Riley, Emmy Mikelson, Eunjin Kim, Heidi Jensen, Kath McCarthy, Loretta Park, Miyoung Sohn, Miguel Otero Fuentes, Vivian Charlesworth, Bec Conrad and curated by Joel Carreiro. 

Art is about paying attention to things. Each artist determines what to focus on based on individual interests, priorities and vision. In the exhibition “Zoom In Zoom Out” ten artists focus on their current subjects. Some present works built from fragments and details, others through layering, accumulation and the recombination of small parts. Some are influenced by different cultures or concentrate on the minutia of everyday life, while others focus on the urban environment or on the interface between our physical and digital/virtual realities. Still others explore ecological issues through a conflation of micro and macro imagery or create images that reveal different viewing experiences when approached closely or viewed distantly. T

hrough a range of processes and materials these artists prioritize issues of materiality, flux, touch, tactility and the haptic. Some sew or braid, others make large structures through the accumulation of smaller elements. One mines the territory between biological and fabricated development and another creates confluences of the past and present. Each adjusts focus to perceive their subjects clearly and invites us to zoom in or out as needed to experience their works.   --from the press release
