HAPTIC TRANSLATIONS - group show - OHWOW - LA



through August 23rd 2012

A man faces a window. Streaks of light cross sky, skip through glass and illuminate his face. A bolt of brightness holds his glance, blinding him momentarily. He is confronted by the room, the borders of the corners, its straightness. The light, aggressive in the pursuit to intrude, reveal speckles of dust, little particles that wistfully float. A breath pushes them spinning. He sucks in his lip, biting the bottom and tries not to breathe. Holding the air until the dull base hits just behind the ears; the sound becomes interior. He hears his body. Leaning against the glass, the weight of his head rests against his forearm.
 The palm of his hand marks the pane. He looks outside and catches himself, doubled.

ROPE BURN: Painting Behind the Velveteen Curtain - group show - Rod Barton - London



through August 17th 2013

"[C]onsider how difficult it is to visualize networks, which, in their incomprehensible scale, ranging from the impossibly small microchip to the impossibly vast global Internet, truly embody the contemporary sublime." (David Joselit)

Rod Barton is pleased to present 'ROPE BURN: Painting Behind the Velveteen Curtain', an exhibition featuring works by an international group of emerging artists: Maiken Bent, Alfred Boman, Alex Da Corte, Parker Ito, and Roman Liška. The artists joined together in this exhibition share a common sensibility regarding image-making rooted in the aesthetics of contemporary consumer culture. Key to this process is the notion of a remediation of content and material - be it in the quoting of tribal-tattoo-like shapes in Alfred Boman's frivolously colorful paintings, the visually chaotic and camp digital collages of Parker Ito, shrill patterning in the modified readymade sculpture by Roman Liška, Maiken Bent´s secretly kinky assemblages, or the integration of a fellow contemporary artist's work in Alex Da Corte's installation on view. The shared concerns with contemporary culture and its overdetermined aesthetic, perhaps as an attempt at salvaging what has become a primary source of inspiration to all of these young artists, appears to have been the driving force for the production of the mongrels on display, which are neither paintings nor sculptures proper. The speculative appropriation of imagery, shapes, and attitudes originally located in a particular cultural sphere and temporality gets dislocated, taken out of context, mashed up with other stylistic elements of varying origins, and thus allows for a fresh view on these formerly marginal aesthetic languages that have gained traction in the discourse around contemporary art and culture once again.

Over the Valley - group show - Steve Turner Contemporary - LA

through August 10th 2013

Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present Over the Valley, an exhibition curated by Lucy Chinen, consisting of works by Metahaven, Goldin+Senneby, Electronic Disturbance Theater, Michael Manning, Katja Novitskova and Andrew Norman Wilson. Created over the last five years, the works reflect the distinct practices of three collaborative and three individual artists from Europe and the United States. They are not part of any movement and they do not share common methods of production, yet all the works in this exhibition address the ever-expanding cultural influence held by the most powerful tech companies. The title refers to Silicon Valley, its influence, its promise and its failures. Companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Apple promise a better life served by innovation and the artists in Over the Valley use such new technologies in unexpected ways.

Hair and Skin - group show - Derek Eller - NYC

through August 15th 2013

Works by:
Hans Bellmer, Louise Bourgeois, Günter Brus, Borden Capalino, David Dupuis, Daniel Gordon, Aneta Grzeszykowska, Kineko Ivic, Lionel Maunz, Maria Petschnig, Chloe Piene, Adam Putnam, Aura Rosenberg, Davina Semo, Bobbi Woods, Rona Yefman


Developing research on mirror neurons and neuroesthetics suggests an alternative model of vision. Mirror neurons, found in the human brain, are the subject of recent research on “physical empathy”; the ability to physically respond to, for example, someone breaking their leg or a couple having sex. The brain actually simulates the experience of what it sees. In other words: 'What I see, I feel.’ This model argues for the importance of empathy in vision, an embodied approach anticipated by phenomenology and now buttressed by neuroscience.

Jonathan Monk - Lisson Gallery - Milan

through July 19th 2013

Monk often makes work about other work: an art of appropriation, adaptation, reworking and revisiting.  Often referencing Conceptual, Pop and Minimalist art, Monk confronts the contemporary dilemma of how to make art in the face of art history: how to be original when seemingly all questions have been posed.  However, in this act of examination, modification and re-presenting, Monk succeeds in creating something new.  His originality lies in the space between the idea inherent in the new object and its actual objecthood.  As Monk confirms, “…the idea of an original and a copy of an original are two very different things.”

Ryan Wallace and Matt Mignanelli - New Work - Bleekerstreet Arts Club - NYC

through July 18th 2013

Ryan Wallace and Matt Mignanelli’s artworks blur the boundary between analog and mechanical modes of production.  Through complex layering and repetition, and with painstaking technique, Wallace and Mignanelli thrust the viewer into the intricacies of the pattern and the  void.  The artists’ explorations of abstraction and monochrome reference predecessors such as Ad Reinhardt, Robert Ryman, and Agnes Martin. The exhibition at the Bleecker Street Arts Club includes  new  paintings by Matt Mignanelli and a selection of Ryan Wallace’s “Tablet” paintings and “Consensus” sculptures. The works on display reflect and challenge modernity’s increasing cerebral insularity within the confines of digital representation and reproduction.

Could we be facing a moment where imagery and information has reached such an hybrid level, that any image is but a blind spot or an after image of itself? And if so, should we feel enclosed or relieved by the possibility of an ever-renovating mutant form which transubstantiates itself?

MINTY - group show - Foxy Production - NYC


through August 2nd 2013

NICHOLAS BUFFON, BEN HORNS, MEGAN MARRIN, CASSIE RAIHL, MATT SAVITSKY. 
CURATED BY EBONY L. HAYNES.

Minty is a color and taste and smell and the sickest band in the world. It is the visceral ingredient for this group exhibition. It feels soft and loose around the edges. It isn’t rigid. It escapes its own form, and there’s something alienating about it. At its best, it is a heraldic device for the show.
