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

ON VIEW: September 14 – October 14, 2018

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.

Esperanza Mayobre Group Exhibition in Buenos Aires

Fran Holstrom

Retrato de un Paisaje (Portrait of a Landscape)
Opening Reception: September 1st, 2018, 12 - 7pm

The exhibition brings together artists based in New York City and Buenos Aires who look to the urban and natural landscape to discuss themes of memory, identity, and perception, and use photography in ways that push the physicality of the image to the foreground. In times where instantaneity reigns, and the photographic image has become synonymous with a sense of intangibility and detachment, Retrato de un Paisaje offers a counter perspective back into the intimacy of matter, permeable to the forces at play in the physical world.

Curated by Claudia Cortínez, featuring artists:
Rodrigo Alcon Quintanilha, Erica Bohm, Ayelen Coccoz, Claudia Cortínez, Estefanía Landesmann, Samuel Lasso, Carolina Magnin, Pedro Wainer,  James Hyde, Myeongsoo Kim, Barney Kulok, Esperanza Mayobre, Alva Mooses, Libby Pratt, Martyna Szczesna, Max Warsh 

The first iteration of this exhibition took place in 2016 in New York City. This edition brings together the same group of artists in Buenos Aires, furthering the confluence between these cities with a new dialogue between their works.                                 --from the press release

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.

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
