Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs - Vilcek Foundation
Through November 13, 2019 - New York

This exhibition and accompanying catalogue examine the confluence of Ralston Crawford's Torn Signs and Semana Santa series, two seemingly disparate themes connected by Crawfords extraordinary visual memory, working method, and inventiveness. Over the course of four decades, Crawford recorded, transformed, and often merged his experiences and memories in photographs, drawings, etchings, paintings, and film. In 1938, Crawford first photographed a ripped and pasted over sign on the street in Philadelphia.Crawford returned to the theme frequently in the last thirty years of his life, capturing the layered and weathered advertisements plastered around New York City. During this time, he also traveled frequently to Seville, Spain and in 1972, documented the experience of Holy Week. Crawford drew inspiration from a constellation of memory and invention that flowed in multiple directions at once. For him, the rhythmic images of hooded penitents processing through the streets for Holy Week recalled formal elements of his Torn Signs imagery. The convergence of these two incredible series culminated in the powerful, large-scale painting Torn Signs, 1974-76 (Vilcek Foundation Collection).... (read more)

An opening reception will be held in the gallery on October 25 from 6 to 8 pm. Doors and windows are the elements that often appear in Parks work. They accentuate the separation between the exterior and the realm of the interior, while also enabling us to overcome that boundary and put two distinct worlds into dialogue with one another. Opening, closing, and moving through passageways is one of the most banal acts of our daily life, however, this simple gesture has a strong significance in our social life, culture, and psyche. Push/Pull focuses on this act of opening and closing, using the door as a space where sculptures and drawings can play with depth, plane, and light.Image: Boohri Park opening, 2019, 30 x 24cm, ink on paper.

Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprisinga six-day clash between police and civilians ignited by a routine raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York Cityand explores its profound legacy within contemporary art and visual culture today.

Through December 14, 2019 - Brooklyn

TILLOU FINE ART will present Clay Orchestra, a comprehensive solo exhibition of paintings by artist Nick Farhi. The exhibition will feature a series of new paintings that were made while the artist was living in Mexico City, exploring where nostalgia and subliminally nostalgic propaganda live and thrive through objects across cultures.

In Clay Orchestra, historically mass-produced ceramic objects are honored through expressive portraits. Sensuous oil paintings on aluminum panels float through the exhibition, grouped by type: harlequins, jars, honey bear containers and ambiguous figures. The juxtaposition of these works also forms a still-life of sorts -- the individual paintings, in aggregate, form an archetype of yard sales, fireplace mantles, and manufactured nostalgia on display in homes around the world. This grouping unearths a commonality between different countries despite political histories and cultural differences, revealing a deep truth: tiny idols always seem to make the... (read more)

When I Wanted Everything: New Work by Alex Sewell - TOTAH Gallery
Through December 18, 2019 - New York

TOTAH Gallery on the Lower East Side presents When I Wanted Everything, an exhibition of new works by Alex Sewell, opening October 24th, from 6-8pm, on view through December 18th. The images populating Alex Sewells paintings archive an ongoing dialectic between the artists personal memory and the collective identity of the American psyche. A restive sense of melancholy threads through each work on exhibit using a disarmingly personable tone. Sewell meticulously destabilizes all-too-familiar vistas of American suburbia, imposing a translucent scrim of violence onto objects ordinarily earmarked for passive consumption. Video games, television, toys of every kind become eerily macabre, giving the lie to the placid everydayness of his themes.
