White Light Conversation: Lets Talk About Religion - Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Studio
November 09, 2019 - New York

God was declared dead in 1966, no longer relevant to an increasingly secular society. Today, people around the world ardently seek religious and faith-based experiences, at times with an intolerant fervor. How did we vacillate between such extremes in the span of only half a century? In modern society, few topics are as subject to ignorance, misunderstanding, and manipulation as religion. Although it is a central building block of human consciousness, we possess surprisingly little knowledge about religious traditionsboth of others and our own. From a more generalized spirituality to intersections with science and art, religion has continued to powerfully resonate in our current challenging climate. Join WNYCs John Schaefer and a group of leading thinkers for a spirited panel discussion exploring the many contradictions inherent in our understanding of religion and the evolutionary pathways of religious belief.Seating is limited, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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)

November 14, 2019 - New York

Addressing the fundamental component of the line within artistic composition, LINEAGE explores the possibilities of perspective, volume, and interaction of planes. Suggesting the line as both a fluid material and conceptual device, these artists highlight their ability to create works that uniquely define the space around them.

Merging form and content, their linear constructions exemplify the expressive potential of line.

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.

Through December 14, 2019 - Brooklyn

TILLOU FINE ART will present Clay Orchestra, a comprehensive solo exhibition of paintings by artist Nick Farhi.

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.

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.

Soft Signs Opening - The Gallery at W83
Through January 05, 2020 - New York

Soft Signs by Anna-Sophia Vukovic. In Anna-Sophia Vukovich's paintings and drawings, arrows and markers serve as external wayfinders but also point towards our own internal navigation. Using colors, abstract shapes and shifts of scale, Vukovich conjures a sense of space and invites us to consider the physical places and spiritual spaces we inhabit, how we got there, and where we're going.

Keith Sonnier - Kasmin Gallery
Through January 11, 2020 - New York

Kasmin is delighted to announce an exhibition of rarely seen seminal work by Keith Sonnier at the gallery's flagship space in Chelsea, New York, on view between November 21 and January 11, 2020. Large scale works from the ongoing series Ba-O-Ba, which the artist began in 1968, utilize large panes of glass and Sonnier's signature neon tubing in a geometric composition that forms a confluence between the sculpture and the gallery wall and floor. Based on the Greek mathematical theory of the Golden Ratio, the series takes its title from the Haitian French dialect in Sonnier's native Louisiana for 'bath of color' or 'light bath.' They are quintessential examples of Sonnier's ability to masterfully synthesize architecture and light, speaking to a formal inventiveness that has defined nearly six decades of work.
