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.

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

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

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!
