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.

A group show titled Italicized Reality featuring work by Liz Ainslie, Andy Cross, Christopher Dunlap, Robin Kang, Jennifer J Lee and Dana Powell is on view at Sardine gallery in Bushwick, NY.

Many parallels can be drawn between Michael Pollan’s new book regarding the science of psychedelics, and the artistic experience of creation. In both, personal visions are explored. Space becomes defined, by modeling forms using value and color. Time is necessary for creation. The idea, the ephemera, becomes grounded in material richness. Through the hands of these artists the ineffability of a mystical experience is underscored, and reality is italicized.  -from the press release

Still Big is a group exhibition inspired by 17th century Dutch Still-Life paintings. These works broke away from the use of religious subject matter to depict secular objects like flowers, food, and bones in domestic interiors. These paintings explored quotidian reality as well as larger themes of life and mortality.  

In Still Big, paintings, photos and sculptures are arranged on or around tables designed by NY based furniture designers. These contemporary tableaus employ surprising juxtapositions to evoke erotic, gustatory and optical pleasures as well as poignant allusions to human frailty.

Curated by Sun You, artists include: Priscilla Fusco, Ethan Greenbaum, Kira Nam Greene, Eric Hibit, Myeongsoo Kim, John Newman, Sarah Peters, Chelsey Pettyjohn, Adrianne Rubenstein, Roger White, B. Wurtz, Crys Yin.

Alex Paik Solo Exhibition at Trestle

Fran Holstrom

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.

Stretto, the title of the exhibition, 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.
