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.

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.

ADDS DONNA presents Gangs of New York, curated by Essex Flowers, an artist-run gallery in New York. The exhibition is a part of the Artist-run Exchange Program, a project initiated by ADDS DONNA in 2017 with support from the Propeller Fund to exchange group exhibitions with other artist-run spaces around the country.

Essex Flowers has assembled an honorable delegation of artists who are core members of alternative spaces in New York City. Each member of Essex Flowers selected one work by one member active in a fellow artist-run organization. The collectives, organizations, and spaces represented here constitute a varied, but ultimately incomplete swathe of New York’s contemporary do-it-yourself artistic sphere. Nevertheless, this exhibition is an exercise in collectivity among collectives, and an experiment in distributed exhibition-making. This self-organized project foregrounds the tensions between the individual and collectivization. Necessity, growth, and precarity emerge as central themes.

Artists and Affiliated Spaces: Yevgenia Baras (Regina Rex), Zach Steinman (The Boom Boom Room), Jason Osborne (Off White Columns), Max Schumann (Printed Matter), Allison Wade (Crystal Flowers), Lauren Clay (Won Eh), Holly Coulis (106 Green), JJ Manford (Underdonk), Nathan Gwynne (helper, Constance), Eric Hibit (Ortega y Gasset Projects), Ala Dehghan (17ESSEX)                                                                  --From the press release

"Noise Margins brings together five artists whose work uses or references technology and digital aesthetics as they’ve become universal and historicized.  Pixels, clip art, posterization, plotters, digital compression, and image editing software, each with its own associative stylings, exist in a collective visual history.  Unlike art history, this immediate past is a shared experience, applied to office work, the dissemination of information, and creative vocations alike -- A relatable reference to mine and subvert. These act as outmoded points in the arc of technological development, and carry with them an inescapable set of practical affiliations with cubicle culture and early computer design.  Starting from the point of utilitarian expectation, these artists move past the notion of the digital as novel, presenting it instead as a tool, while referencing its role in visual culture and communication." - Press Release

"When Geometry Smiles presents the work of 12 artists who use geometry as a structural aspect of their work, while simultaneously exploring how structure opens doors to play and cultivates emotional levity. Eschewing rigidity, the artists in When Geometry Smiles create work that is potentially smile-inducing for its liveliness and lightness. These artists explore geometry as an essential component in the quest for personal meaning via their choice of imagery, their tactile engagement with materials, or their painterly style. Many of the artists in the exhibition use fiber-based materials that, literally, soften geometry. This emphasis on painting “fabric” leads to new associations with the world of the home. The desire to fuse the comforting domestic with the impartiality of geometry raises new ideas about the artist’s sense of themselves, their surroundings, and the world."  --from the press release

Liz Ainslie Solo Show

Recent oil paintings by Brooklyn artist Liz Ainslie hug the walls of Transmitter, one of our favorite artist-run spaces in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Cool down this summer with the mesmerizing cool blues in Ainslie's palette.

An excerpt about the work from Clay Matlin's catalog on the artist's work:
“Earnestness is hard. It is troubling, off-putting even, because it makes those who are suspicious of it suspicious of their own feelings. Earnestness requires a suspension of the surety that our contemporary culture gets from ironic detachment. To be earnest is to believe that things matter, that there are things worth believing in. It is a weapon against the creeping nihilism that greets us everywhere in 2017".

Opening: Friday, June 23rd, 6 - 9PM
ON VIEW:  June 23 - July 30th, 2017
