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

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.

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.

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
