Masterpieces of French Faience: Selections from the Sidney R. Knafel Collection - The Frick Collection
Through July 14, 2019 - New York

The exhibition in the Portico Gallery presents a promised gift to the Frick Collection: seventy-five objects from the collection of Sidney R. Knafel — the finest collection of French faience in private hands — to tell the fascinating and complex history of this particular art form. A feat of great technical achievement, French faience was introduced to Lyon in the second half of the sixteenth century by skilled Italian immigrants — the French word "faience" derives from the northern Italian city of Faenza. Over the next two centuries, production spread throughout the provinces of metropolitan France. The fine decoration of French faience draws inspiration from multiple sources, including Italian maiolica, Asian porcelain, and contemporary engravings. The forms of its platters, bowls, plates, and ewers derive mostly from European ceramics and silver. These influences come together in works of great originality.

We Were Always Here: Japanese-American Post-War Pioneers of Art - Heather James Fine Art
Through July 15, 2019 - San Francisco

Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm Saturday 10:30am – 5pm Heather James Fine Art is pleased to present our newest location in San Francisco on the 5th floor of the well-known 49 Geary Street art collective. For over 20 years, Heather James Fine Art has maintained a reputation for the highest level of service to collectors world-wide. Now, we're excited to offer art from our expansive inventory in a location of convenience serving the entire Bay Area.

We Were Always Here: Japanese-American Post-War Pioneers of Art provides an insightful chapter within the many cross-cultural narratives that developed and flourished in American art after World War II. While several artists featured in the exhibition were born in the U.S., others chose the U.S. as their home. This convergence of identities—taking place during a both highly expressive and repressive period in America—resulted in particularly potent work, which expanded the vocabulary of painting while introduc...

Summer Idyll - Agora Gallery
Through July 17, 2019 - NYC

Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Summer Idyll, a collective exhibition on view June 27th through July 17th, 2019. The picturesque episodes as encapsulated in Summer Idyll create an artistic journey from vibrant colors to muted tones; the whimsical to the dark, through a series of works via a variety of creative mediums. The 19 artists exhibiting share an artistic talent, yet individually embody diverse art forms utilizing mixed media from oil, acrylic, pencil, ink, and charcoal to photography, sculpting, 3D techniques, multiple layers, and recycled materials. The exhibition vacillates from the abstract to recognizable influential figures in music and art and creates drama through depictions such as those that focus on the chaos of weather to the stunning lines of molded forms. The works stimulate emotions, incorporating a musical and nostalgic cadence. Featuring lifelong seasoned visionaries alongside talented emerging artists, this exhibition showcases individuals whose works mirror the globally diverse heritage that they embrace. Their cultures define them, but their passions ignite the vast array of disparate creations presented in Summer Idyll. Their works include fi... (read more)

Summer Exhibits Opening - Center for Book Arts - The Center for Book Arts
July 18, 2019 - New York

Join us at the Center for Book Arts to celebrate the opening of our three Summer exhibitions, 6:30-9:00pm. Members' preview, 5:45. Main Gallery: Poetry is Not a Luxury Poetry is Not a Luxury considers how book arts have contributed to the recording of oppositional subjectivities in the U.S. The exhibition is titled after Audre Lorde’s 1977 essay on the intersections of creativity and activism that were not only essential to her own work but to a diverse group of feminist thinkers at the time. Recognizing that both creative work and activism are driven by subjectivity, Lorde argues that for women poetry is not a luxury but a vital necessity, as it provides a framework through which survival and the desire for change can be articulated, conceptualized, and transformed into meaningful action. Foyer Gallery: The Reverse of Landscape The Reverse of Landscape: Through a series of photographic works identified as a “Photochemical Book”, Catalina De La Cruz explores the desert of Chile and Peru as spaces with imposed limitations, in which natural and manmade structures struggle to survive. Through chromatic, graphic, architectural, spatial, and referential inquiries on the la... (read more)

Layered SPURA Walking Tour - Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space
July 20, 2019 - New York

For fifty years, as New York’s Lower East Side has gone from disinvested to gentrified, residents have lived with a wound in the neighborhood, a series of vacant lots known as the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area (SPURA). Most of the buildings on the 14-square-block area were condemned for urban renewal and “clearance” in 1967, displacing almost two thousand families--mostly of limited means, and mostly families of color. Residents were promised that they would soon return to new housing, very little of which ever came. Over decades, efforts to keep out affordable housing sparked deep-rooted enmity and stalled development, making SPURA a dramatic study of failed urban renewal, as well as a microcosm epitomizing the greatest challenges faced by American cities since World War II. Fifty years of activism for affordability and justice finally led to an extraordinary process in 2012 of neighborhood negotiation through which guidelines for the site were developed that would include 50% below-market-rate housing. Essex Crossing, one of the city’s largest developments, is the manifestation of those guidelines, and is now rising on the SPURA site. The new building for the venerable Essex Mar... (read more)

The Leo Castelli Gallery opened in New York at 4 East 77th Street on February 10, 1957. In 1958 the gallery gave Jasper Johns his first exhibition. Within 10 years, the gallery became the international epicenter for Pop, Minimal, and Conceptual Art, showing among others Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, and Keith Sonnier. In 1971 the Castelli Gallery opened a second space at 420 West Broadway in SoHo. During this decade, several Conceptual artists joined the gallery, including Joseph Kosuth, Lawrence Weiner and Hanne Darboven.

These essential qualities secured his position as possibly the most respected and influential advocate for contemporary art of his time. In 1999 the Leo Castelli Gallery moved to the Upper East Side, where it has since been located. The gallery is now directed by Castelli's wife, Barbara Bertozzi Castelli.

Curated by Shane Townley, the show will feature a total of eight paintings, many of which have not been previously exhibited.

With these new paintings of scantily clad young girls posing with handheld devices, Feshina calls the viewer’s attention to the contrast between contemporary and historic portraiture poses, highlighting how restrictive codes of behavior change, migrate, and ultimately manifest themselves in visual culture.

"Taejoong Kim: Bloomed" Opening & Performance 6/28 7 - 9 PM - Space 776 Gallery
Through July 25, 2019 - Brooklyn

Space 776 is delighted to present a solo exhibition of photographs and videos by Seoul-born, New York-based artist Taejoong Kim. At his first solo show in New York, he is showing his latest series of work, The Rose of Sharon, Bloomed, an interactive performance which captures the movement and lights during a popular children’s game called "Red Light, Green Light," often played in many countries with different names. The main theme of his work for the last 5 years is long exposure photograph. His photographs taken with a long exposure from 30 seconds to 30 minutes and videos taken at the same time are the most important materials for his work. In the same frame, hundreds of pieces of light mixed in order and direction cause audiences to clash with old beliefs and new experiences. The vivid rules created by the artist and the ambiguity caused by the movements of the human are violently encountered in the photographs and installations of the same source.

Conceptual - NYA Gallery
Through July 26, 2019 - New York

Conceptual Opening Receptions: Thursday, July 4th & Friday, July 5th (6-9pm) Exhibition Dates: July 4 - 26, 2019 7 Franklin Place New York, NY 10013 For Immediate Release: NYA Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition titled Conceptual, showcasing small-scale works from over 20 highly talented artists in a range of media. Overall, these artists foster a critical conversation about how art is more than just surface, technique, and emotion; art is equally about ideas, concepts, and intellectual depth.

The international roster of artists contributing to this fruitful dialogue include: Noah D. Alessandro; Gel Apollo; Kimberly Aronow; Pol Attard; Gregory Brenner; Chelsea Criger; Peter Dam; Cynthia Pareja Dubin; Jessica Eppich; Angee Ferrin; Jennifer L.

Exhibition opening: Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling - Bohemian National Hall
Through July 28, 2019 - New York

[2nd Floor] An opening for the exhibition "Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling" featuring photographs by Czech documentary photographer Dana Kyndrova who examines the many facets of women's lives. The presented photographs - shot primarily in the former Czechoslovakia and later in the Czech Republic, but also in some Western countries - show the precious moments of daily life, child birth, the tensions of school exams, falling in love. The project called "Woman Between Inhaling and Exhaling" includes photographs from the 1970s - 1990s, and its aim is to capture the life of a woman in its full variety, from birth to death. The project is divided into seven parts – adolescence, maternity and family, fun, work, eroticism, faith, and old age. Apart from the objective chronology of life's pilgrimage of a human being, or more precisely, of a woman, the photographs perceive the principal life values, which accompany and influence us during our entire existence. The theme is more or less general; thus the question is not to portray a particular environment or a characteristics of a certain country. One could say the woman portrayed is a „European" woman. A substantial part of the photograp... (read more)

Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless - Red Bull Arts
Through July 28, 2019 - New York

Red Bull Arts New York is proud to present Gretchen Bender: So Much Deathless, the first posthumous retrospective of the life and work of the influential, multi-disciplinary artist. Opening to the public on March 6, 2019, and remaining on view until July 28, the ambitious exhibition returns the spotlight to one of contemporary art's most prescient figures, detailing her historic importance and contemporary relevance. Gretchen Bender (1951-2004) was a pioneering artist who worked across video, sculpture, computer graphics, photography, print and installation to interrogate the accelerated age of mass media. Moving to New York in 1978, Bender quickly fell in with the Post-Pictures Generation scene, centered around the artist-run gallery Nature Morte, as well as a milieu of artist and performers connected to The Kitchen. She befriended and collaborated with such figures as artists Robert Longo and Cindy Sherman, the choreographers Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, and musicians Stuart Argabright and Vernon Reid. Building upon techniques developed in her years running a feminist-Marxist screen-printing collective in Washington, D.C., Bender's early two-dimensional work, made in New York, ... (read more)

Kwang Young Chun: Aggregations - Brooklyn Museum
Through July 28, 2019 - Brooklyn

The Aggregations are simultaneously Space Age and nostalgic, beautiful and violent, powerful and fragile. They draw on the artist's training in abstract painting as well as memories of his childhood, when Korean apothecaries sold medicine in similar little bundles.

Through July 29, 2019 - Long Island City

While photography reproduced the world as an image, we are now about to print it in 3D.

The Female Gaze: Women Surrealists in the Americas and Europe - Heather James Fine Art
Through July 31, 2019 - New York

Piercing through the male gaze, works by leading American, British, Latin American, and Polish female Surrealistartists will be on view at Heather James Fine Art, New York, from May 8 – July 31, 2019. The Female Gaze: Women Surrealists in the Americas and Europe reframes the history of the movement by focusing exclusively on the pivotal role played by female artists as independent from—rather than in relationship to—their male counterparts. Featuring paintings, sculpture, mixed media, and collages spanning from 1938 to 2008, the exhibition also seeks to reveal the underlying political, social, and cultural attitudes that influenced ideas of gender. An opening reception will be held on May 8, from 6-8 p.m. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue including essays by Gloria Orenstein, Professor Emerita, Comparative Literature and Gender Studies, University of Southern California, and Patryk Tomaszewski, an art historian at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Orenstein noted, "I have been fortunate to know women Surrealists such as Leonora Carrington and Leonor Fini, and their work speaks to me on so many levels both spiritually and viscerally. I am thrilled that He... (read more)

Garry Winogrand: Color - Brooklyn Museum
Through August 18, 2019 - Brooklyn

Garry Winogrand: Color is the first exhibition dedicated to the nearly forgotten color photographs of Garry Winogrand (1928–1984), one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century. While almost exclusively known for his black-and-white images that pioneered a "snapshot aesthetic" in contemporary art, Winogrand produced more than 45,000 color slides between the early 1950s and late 1960s. Coming from a working-class background in the Bronx and practicing at the time when photographs had little market value, Winogrand did not have the resources to produce costly and time consuming prints of his color slides during his lifetime. Yet, he remained dedicated to the medium for nearly twenty years. The exhibition presents an enveloping installation of large-scale projections comprising more than 400 rarely or never-before seen color photographs that capture the social and physical landscape of New York City and the United States. On his numerous journeys through Midtown Manhattan and across the country, Winogrand explored the raw visual poetics of public life—on streets and highways, in suburbs, at motels, theaters, fairgrounds, and amusement parks. For him, the industr... (read more)

Pratt Manhattan Gallery Presents: Mediated Meditations - Pratt Manhattan Gallery
Through September 07, 2019 - New York

Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents a multi-media group exhibition with a selection of Pratt Institute Fine Arts MFA sculpture alumni. The exhibition, titled Mediated Meditations, is curated by New York-based cultural anthropologist, curator, and essayist Niama Safia Sandy. In Mediated Meditations, the selected works interrogate relationships with our bodies, nature, language, internet culture, gender, sexuality - and overall and most importantly - our relationship to our humanity and ability to recognize another's. The artists challenge and reshape the genre of sculpture with unique material approaches to ask questions about our experience as humans. Additionally, the exhibition examines how technology can be engaged as a material, used by the artists to create a means to order the world and solve problems, as well as navigate an artistic practice. Art is a conduit for making sense of lived experiences which are often viewed through the prism of subcategories — the built environment, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and spirituality. In this exhibition, these categories inform the selected artists’ sensibilities, and the way they each manipulate their materials to observe,... (read more)

Hogarth: Cruelty and Humor - The Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 22, 2019 - Manhattan

The satirical scenes of the celebrated English artist William Hogarth (1697–1764) are iconic representations of eighteenth-century urban life at a time of great socio-economic disparity. An academic outsider and an activist, Hogarth was driven to innovate, creating new genres and modes of expression in his painting, printmaking, and drawing in his effort to elevate the status of British art. This exhibition will investigate the ways the artist used humor, satire, and political commentary to engage a broad audience and agitate for legislation and political goals. The exhibition features the Morgan's exceptional cache of six sheets preparatory for two of Hogarth's most revered print series, both issued in February 1751: Beer Street and Gin Lane and The Four Stages of Cruelty. The story of Hogarth's images reveal an artist who addressed the ills and injustices of life in a modern metropolis, exploring the connections between violence, crime, alcohol abuse, and cruelty to animals in ways that would amuse, occasionally shock, and edify his audience.

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

Ralston Crawford: Torn Signs brings together drawings, paintings, and photography by the American Modernist artist, while examining the confluence of two seemingly disparate series completed later in his life, Torn Signs and Semana Santa. Though their subject matter is drastically different—one is inspired by tattered advertisements on the streets of New York, while the other depicts observers of Holy Week in Seville, Spain—Crawford connects them through his extraordinary visual memory, working method, and sense of spatial organization. The convergence of these two incredible series culminates in Torn Signs, 1974-76, the powerful, large-scale painting that sits at the thematic center of the exhibition.

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 Crawford’s 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)

Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall - Brooklyn Museum
Through December 08, 2019 - Brooklyn

Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Art 50 Years After Stonewall commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising—a six-day clash between police and civilians ignited by a routine raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City—and explores its profound legacy within contemporary art and visual culture today. The exhibition draws its title from the rallying words of transgender artist and activist Marsha P. Johnson, underscoring both the precariousness and the vitality of LGBTQ+ communities. The exhibition presents twenty-two LGBTQ+ artists born after 1969 whose works grapple with the unique conditions of our political time, and question how moments become monuments. Through painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and video, these artists engage interconnected themes of revolt, commemoration, care, and desire.
