CA$H ONLY - Superposition Gallery
September 15, 2018 - New York
Press Release September 4, 2018 New York, NY- “Consumer culture has become an incredibly dominant force in our lives. While humanity would once follow passionately behind religious or political leaders we now find the same passion vouching for our favorite consumer brands. Currency symbols as well as brand logos have become some of the most recognizable iconography present in our daily lives—It feels as if power lies where the cash is.” -David Cash Superposition Gallery is pleased to present "CA$H ONLY," a solo exhibition of artworks by David Cash (b. 1997), who interprets the inherent connections in one’s identity between art, fashion, and commercial culture. The artworks employ many interpretations of how one is confronted with aesthetic obsession through consumerism and how it affects our relationships and identities. Cash utilizes film, photographic prints and works on canvas and clothing. The works were made specifically for the exhibition, in tandem with Cash’s recent New York Fashion Week collaboration with the brand, Tumblr & Tipsy, owned by Michael Kuluva.

AUGUST 21, 1968 - Czech Center New York
Through October 05, 2018 - New York
Selection of 20 iconic photographs capturing the dramatic events that occurred on August 21, 1968 in Czechoslovakia. An army of half-a-million soldiers of five Soviet bloc states - the Soviet Union, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary and the German Democratic Republic - invaded the country with heavy military equipment including tanks. People were horrified and strolled into the streets to protest the occupants. The exhibition includes photographs by Vladimír Lammer, Libuše Kyndrová, Dagmar Hochová, Milo? Novotný, Ji?í Všete?ka, Miroslav Martinovský, Václav Toužimský, Jaromír ?ejka, Bohumil Dobrovolský, Ji?í Stivín, Gustav Aulehla, and Jan Reich, among others. At the beginning of 1968, the so-called rebuilding process began in Czechoslovakia. It was based on the utterly misconceived idea that the regime established and maintained by brutal methods can be democratized and humanized by moderate reforms. If successful, it would probably lead to the loss of the power monopoly of the Communist Party, the re-acquisition of full political sovereignty of Czechoslovakia, and, in its consequence, to the collapse of the Soviet bloc.

Patricia Queiruga - Agora Gallery
Through October 30, 2018 - New York
Collective Exhibition With an ever-changing combination of paints, Patricia Queiruga builds work that ranges from abstract to figurative, but remains reliably organic. In each of the artist's works, paint builds, drizzles, and drips into shape. The movement of the material on the canvas and the artist's action in making the work is always visible. In some works vibrant streaks of red or yellow burst through the composition. Inspired by music, Queiruga makes energetic choices in acrylic, oil, and mixed media, translating the exciting notes into a visual practice. Sharply cutting across one another or carefully blended together in the background, the colors and treatments combine with Queiruga's impulsive choices to form artworks full of emotion and spontaneity. Working freely, Queiruga explores each avenue of interest, whether an elephant or an abstract concept, with versatility and an expressionistic perspective. Born in the city of Córdoba, Patricia Queiruga lives and works in Argentina. The artist incorporates varied influences into each work, sometimes using painting as a means of pure expression while also occasionally highlighting societal issues like human trafficking t...
