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

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.

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

Group Show "When Geometry Smiles" Curated by Eric Hibit

Paul Wackers, Path of Least Resistance, 2018, acrylic and spray paint on canvas, 36" x 30"

"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

Aquarius proudly presents Spring Fling, our first gallery exhibition, in collaboration with Neesh Interactive. This pop-up exhibition considers a selection of artists featured in the print publication, “Neesh, Issue No. 1, Spring 2017”, produced by the curator and founder of Neesh, Fran Holstrom. Neesh offers a sample of the distinct conceptual and material motivations utilized in the emerging art scene at large. Please join us for an opening reception featuring works by:

Wm. Dilworth
Jennifer Grimyser
Eric Hibit
Katarina Jerinic
Matt Miller

Opening: Friday, April 7th, 7-9pm
On view:  Saturdays April 8th & 15th, Noon - 6pm

 

Bill Dilworth’s practice centers on mark-making, and involves a variety of novel approaches. The artist’s body is an instrument to skoot, push and smear paint: oversize canvases record footwork in action, while meandering installations record the artist’s fingerprints as they feel their way around the room. Dilworth also incorporates a conceptual practice that notes the passage of time, finds connections in nature, and across linguistic patterns.                                        

Jennifer Grimyser’s photographs have the professional polish of a glossy magazine, yet use none of the digital tricks. Each photograph is painstakingly constructed in the studio. The resulting images have a heavy graphic nature, tight cropping, and pictorial flattening, yet provide visual clues to help the viewer navigate. Words, symbols, and diagrams are placed within the image concretely, often casting shadows, while 3D imagery is collapsed to freely intermingle in the textual field.

Eric Hibit’s paintings are characterized by crisp imagery and exquisite detail. Lovingly considered from conception to the final embellishments, Hibit excels in two tandem modes of painting: one flat, representational and intimately scaled, the other abstract and constructed to bulge off the wall. Textiles such as tapestry and needlepoint have influenced his repeated gesture, evidenced in the application of innumerable hand-painted dots.

Katarina Jerinic draws attention to our interactions with the built landscape. Katarina’s artwork manifests itself in maps, suites of photographs, walking tours, videos, and handmade editions. The project Beautification This Site, document Jerinic’s interaction with a leftover piece of land acquired through the Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway Program.  This series of photographs exemplify the artist’s dark humor centering on the notion of ‘territory’ in its expectant state.

Matt Miller builds each painting through an idiosyncratic dance of reductive and additive processes. Embracing dissonance with anachronistic color and dense gestures, Miller’s raw, underworked aesthetic is the result of a time-consuming process. The resulting pocks in the ground and raised surface of each brushstroke are often a springboard for the addition of yet more collapsed shapes, that add dimensionality until the painting pushes towards sculpture.  work relies on deeply textured, bold, expressionist brushstrokes.

Neesh features emerging artists making original, collectible work from their extensive network, and encourages dialogue with the artists. Visit www.neesh.io to request a studio visit or buy artwork online.

Eric Hibit - 3 Exhibitions this Dec/Jan

Fran Holstrom

Eric Hibit has  artwork on view in three shows during January-December including:

Serious Play is an exhibition of work by the directors of Ortega y Gasset Projects at AUTOMAT Collective in Philadelphia, on view until January 8, 2017. 
 


Sister Outsider on view at Underdonk, is a show of protest and solidarity, featuring artists working in a range of media, who all belong to communities that have been directly threatened by President elect Donald Trump and his campaign rhetoric. The exhibition borrows its name from poet and activist Audre Lorde’s compilation of essays and speeches dating from 1976-1984, to raise awareness around issues of homophobia, racism, ageism, classism, sexism, and heterosexism. 

TSA New York presents 33 artists chosen from the  2016 – 2017 Flat File program, in an exhibition titled Flat Files: Year Four representing a wide array of approaches towards flat media including drawing, collage, printmaking, and photography. The small-scale format becomes an elastic site for play and exploration on view through December 18th, 2016.
