WASTED SPACES

About Wasted Spaces

Wasted Spaces was created to help stem the decaying effect of empty and disused buildings on local areas, while also providing artists with free exhibition space and a chance to reach a wider audience. By recycling disused buildings, Wasted Spaces animates local areas, brings local artists together with new communities and encourages artistic innovation.

What Does Wasted Spaces Do?

The team searches out empty shop fronts, neglected commercial sites and other unloved buildings. These are then cleaned up and filled with art. By doing so, the “wasted spaces” are re-energised and transformed into exciting art experiences. This offers a valuable platform for emerging artists to showcase their work.

Abstract Derive at 38 Ludlow



For the first exhibition, curators Axel Wieder and Tobi Maier present works of artists that originates from diverse socio-political investigations and creates a tension between abstraction and concrete social circumstances. Abstract Derive departs from an earlier commission of New York based artist Cristóbal Lehyt at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in 2008, for which the artist produced a large-scale model of the city of Stuttgart and portraits of its citizens that approach the question of subjectivity through the practice of drawing. This was used as a point of reference to create a group show investigating questions related to the specificity of site and the politics of abstraction, as an attempt to mediate a relationship between history and representation.

Amy Gartrell at Daniel Reich Gallery


Amy Gartrell

Whatever and Ever
May 22nd - June 26th, 2010

Daniel Reich Gallery is pleased to present a show of new work by Amy Gartrell. Known for her sculptures, ceramics, paintings and fine ink drawings, Gartrell’s work draws upon pop cultural sources such as rotary telephones and commercial eighties stylistic gesture such as floating scribbles and their suggestion of space. Additionally of interest is the way that popular vocabulary is reflected in high art forms - a connection only apparent once an age has passed.

FROM A FRIEND

In truth I tell you that daily visits to museums, libraries, and academies (cemeteries of empty exertion, Calvaries of crucified dreams, registries of aborted beginnings!) are, for artists, as damaging as the prolonged supervision by parents of certain young people drunk with their talent and their ambitious wills. When the future is barred to them, the admirable past may be a solace for the ills of the moribund, the sickly, the prisoner... But we want no part of it, the past, we the young and strong Futurists!

STUDIOMUSEUM HARLEM

VIDÉOSTUDIO:


NEW WORK FROM FRANCE


April 1, 2010–June 27, 2010


In a trio of month-long programs, the Studio Museum presents the work of three North African artists—Yto Barrada, Bouchra Khalili and Djamel Kokene—who were born or currently live in France. While these artists emerge from a specific Afro-European context, the exhibition brings together work that considers “France”—and the very idea of the nation—as a concept rather than a stable category. Together their work encourages us to consider the relationship between individuals and the state; culture and the law; and identity and modes of representation. VidéoStudio: New Work from France is the second installment of VideoStudio, an ongoing series of video art.

NO LONGER EMPTY



No Longer Empty is delighted to participate in the Governors Island Summer Festival which opens to the public on June 5 - October 10, 2010, with a multi location public art exhibition, a film serie, children workshop and more events to follow. To learn more about the exhibition's theme, please email press@nolongerempty.org

The Exhibition: The Sixth Borough

The Sixth Borough, cuarted by Manon Slome and Julian Navarro, entails a series of site specific installations, explores this paradox and the parallel realities of the mainland and the island which exist in spatial proximity but in different states of being.

Visitors feel this sense of dislocation from the moment they step off of the ferry after just a few minutes ride. The selection of artists and artistic interventions in all media, are intended to address this sense of displacement while exploring notions of memory, residual entities of the past and transitions between worlds.

The Public School




The Public School is a school with no curriculum. At the moment, it operates as follows: first, classes are proposed by the public (I want to learn this or I want to teach this); then, people have the opportunity to sign up for the classes (I also want to learn that); finally, when enough people have expressed interest, the school finds a teacher and offers the class to those who signed up. The Public School is not accredited, it does not give out degrees, and it has no affiliation with the public school system.

The Public School was initiated by Telic's Director, Sean Dockray, in 2007. It operated in Los Angeles for a year before new schools, enacting the same model, were started in Chicago and Philadelphia in 2009. In fall of 2009, Telic and common room received a fellowship from the Van Alen Institute to launch The Public School (for Architecture) New York. At the beginning of 2010, the school moved into 177 Livingston in Brooklyn with Triple Canopy and Light Industry and the "(for Architecture)" was dropped from the name. Also in the fall of 2009, Telic traveled to Betonsalon in Paris and Komplot in Brussels to help start new schools there. Since then, The Public School has also popped up in Helsinki (supported by the multipurpose space, Ptarmigan) and San Juan (with Betalocal).

Raw Video: Violence Erupts on Greek Riot Anniversary

In December 2009, Tracey Moberly travelled to Haiti as a participating artist in the first Ghetto Biennale. She wrote the below article for the March issue of Dazed & Confused before the earthquake struck, but we have decided to pull forward publishing to draw attention to her appeal. Her photographs are all from downtown Port-au-Prince, an area that suffered intense damage just a month later and is now in the heart of the UN-designated 'Red Zone', preventing aid from reaching these embargoed areas. In downtown Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, the “Red Alert Zone” is home for three weeks to the world’s first Ghetto Biennale, with 35 artists and scholars in attendance from many countries, including Haiti, USA, UK, Jamaica, Colombia, Croatia and Germany. In the Grand Rue area of the ghetto, we navigate past food stalls, welders, pavement garages and people just hanging out (most with stunning, sculptured physiques and posture). People entering into the ghetto are greeted by a sculpture of Vodou (“voodoo”) god Papa Legba – trickster, warrior, and messenger of destiny. Standing over eight metres high and sporting a formidable phallus, it is constructed from a car chassis, part of an old truck, bed-frames and scrap metal.
