Deer in the Headlights, Aaron Johnson, 27 Color Serigraph on Coventry Rag 290gsm, 21.75 x 21.75 inches, signed and numbered edition of 75, 2016, $450 USD plus shipping.

ARTIST: Aaron Johnson
MEDIUM: 27 Color Serigraph on Coventry Rag 290gsm
SIZE: 21.75 x 21.75 inches
S/N EDITION: 75
PRICE: $450 USD

ABOUT THE PRINT:

Deer in the Headlights: a Romantic American Tragedy in a Pickup Truck. This scene captures lovers in one last kiss before death, the road kill death of a big buck, the shimmering shatter of windshield, the American idyll of the country road snaking a sublime Wild West landscape, and the release of a swarm of spirits into the infinite starry cosmos. I prepped templates for this print by painting on layers of clear mylar, keeping every color isolated for translation into silk screen. This method is akin to my reverse painting process, so the methodology flowed organically from my studio to the Kayrock studio. This 27 color silk screen print is nothing short of a feat of wizardry, masterfully executed by the printmakers at Kayrock out of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. – Aaron Johnson

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Aaron Johnson lives and works in Brooklyn, and holds an MFA from Hunter College, NYC, 2005. His work has been included in museum exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art, Mass MoCA, The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, The Knoxville Museum of Contemporary Art, and The Katzen Center at American University.

Lil Wayne print by Tom Sanford
Lil Wayne, Tom Sanford, archival pigment print, approx. 22 x 17 inches,
signed and numbered edition of 100, 2016, $100 USD plus shipping .

NOWhere Limited is pleased to announce the exclusive release of a new, signed and numbered archival pigment print edition by Tom Sanford: Lil Wayne

ABOUT THE PRINT:
This high resolution archival pigment print measures approximately 22 x 17 inches. The signed and numbered edition of 10 is printed on acid free paper and is priced at $100 USD per copy, plus shipping. A printer’s proof edition is also available: here It is limited to just 10 copies and is priced at $250 USD.

ABOUT THE IMAGE:
About this piece, Tom says:

I made this painting of Lil Wayne back in 2009, the same year Adam Bhala Lough released his documentary “The Carter.” Now, seven years later, my painting is being used as the cover art for the internet re-release of the film and so we thought this would be a wonderful reason to issue a print of the painting.

The painting is one that I find particularly successful in a technical sense. Inspired by Otto Dix’s 1913 self portrait of the young artist smoking, I hoped to engender a similar expressionistic pathos by juxtaposing a finely painted portrait of Dwayne Carter with a much more expressionistic style in painting the pot smoke coming out of his mouth, gooey and thick with oily medium.

When Bhala approached me about using this image for the re-release of “The Carter” I was incredibly flattered. His film is a powerful documentation of Lil Wayne’s surrealist-like artistic process and his alienation as he descends into a drug induced isolation. Adam’s documentary perfectly captured my ambivalent feelings about this fascinating artist’s life and work. I love the painting I made, but his documentary is a masterpiece and I am thrilled to have this association with “The Carter.”

Lil Wayne print by Tom Sanford

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Tom Sanford is a New York-based artist whose work is exhibited around the world. His paintings, which range from historical works depicting celebrity assassinations to portraits of gangsta rappers and teen pop tarts to elaborate cosmologies weaved together from Hollywood movies, reflect a deep ambivalence about the American cultural condition.

ABOUT THE IMAGERY:
This image is part of an ongoing series of fine art parody pieces Meloy has been working on for the past few years, and refers to the famous post-Renaissance painting by Caravaggio. Meloy’s version stars his iconic character The Primate, as described below…

The Primate is New York City’s omnipresent street creature. Originally conjured up in 2012, over the past few years, The Primate has evolved into an autonomous, sentient being, and is always there to greet you in public bathrooms, pizzerias, and sticker spots across the globe. (IG: @theprimatenyc)

The Primate Assorted Sticker Pack by Joseph Meloy

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Joseph Meloy is a visual artist born and raised in New York City. Working in a style he coined “Vandal Expressionism”, his particular brand of post-graffiti abstraction draws heavily from AbEx, art brut, surrealism, cave painting and pop art, invoking primal elements of graffiti and the iconography of damage and intrusion from street art to turn the calligraphic scribbles of the street into a medium for artistic divination. Unencumbered by distinctions between the abstract and the figurative, his work delves into the impulses of the subconscious, transcribing them spontaneously onto canvas, paper and wall in an otherworldly yet distinctly urban visual language.

Cy Gavin – Overture

If you are in the city, don’t miss the first New York solo show of quasi-figurative paintings by Cy Gavin. Twelve mixed media pieces are currently hung at Sargent’s Daughters on the Lower East Side through August 20th.

Cy Gavin - Overture (1)

Cy Gavin - Overture (2)

Cy Gavin - Overture (3)

Cy Gavin - Overture (4)

From the gallery:

Sargent’s Daughters is pleased to present “Overture”, the first solo exhibition of New York based painter Cy Gavin. The exhibition is comprised of a series of twelve mixed-media paintings and will be open July 15th, 2015 through August 20th, 2015.

In his debut exhibit, Gavin tackles a wide range of topics and influences- from the writings of W.E.B Du Bois to West African objects to his complex relationships with his family and his past. Gavin’s sexual orientation and artistic interests were an anathema to his Jehovah’s Witness family and his race set him apart in his rural hometown, making him an outsider even inside his own home. The sudden death of Gavin’s father, after a consistently bellicose relationship, caused Gavin to examine his family history and lack of documentation of his ancestry. His desire to depict his father and his relationship with him became a way to construct a past that only partially existed, just as the nebulous record keeping and mystery surrounding his origins allowed Gavin to explore the idea of a collective identity as well as an individual one.

Of major importance to Gavin is the “double consciousness” of black Americans lives. Du Bois describes this as “the veil” and the “two-ness” of being African American and American, writing in The Souls of Black Folk:

“One ever feels his two-ness, —an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.”

In Gavin’s paintings this idea appears as two images: the hovering outline of a ghost, and an enigmatic black figure, whose opacity absorbs rather than reflects the surrounding light. To achieve this density of color, Gavin creates his own tincture incorporating tattoo ink, umber and translucent blue. This ultra-black figure becomes both a positive form and a shadow: an allegory of the African Diaspora in all forms. Often these figures are supine or floating- creating an impression of weightlessness and uncertainty, while curious protrusions emit from them like a sinister aura. The surrounding landscapes are rendered in searingly bright colors that both isolate and consume the figures, who are clearly at odds with their dazzling terrain. Some of the figures have staples or pins piercing their bodies, a reference to the Nkisi Nkondi—spirit vessels of the Kongo peoples into which nails are driven.

In addition to the broad scope of his subjects, Gavin takes an unorthodox approach to materials and construction of his paintings. Working directly on unstretched canvas, Gavin works on the painting in an aggressive and occasionally ritualistic manner, listening to music to create a rhythmic motion. His scratching and erasure of the surface is a metaphorical reference to the erasure of African cultures in America’s history and challenges ideas of a mandatory assimilation to Western ideologies. This ceremonial method of creation extends to the materials in the paintings as well. Gavin incorporates his blood, hair, pink Bermuda sand and, in the case of Portrait Of My Father, his father’s ashes. The paintings thus become a carrier or vessel of these materials as well as Gavin’s work- giving credence to the first law of thermodynamics: matter cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form. Exploring this same idea, Tolstoy writes in War and Peace:

“I feel I can never disappear because nothing disappears in the whole universe, and more than that, I always shall be and always have been in existence. I feel that other spirits exist, far above me, and it’s in their world that you will find truth.”

It is this same truth that Gavin brings to his paintings, and his expansive view of the human and spirit world draws together Gavin’s work and transforms it from a deeply personal expression to a manifestly universal one in which we are all, no matter our origins, engaged.

Cy Gavin was born in Pittsburgh, PA 1985 and received his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 2007. He currently lives and works in New York City, where he is an MFA candidate at Columbia University. This is his first solo exhibition in New York.

The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Schaulager, Basel, announce their collaboration on a full retrospective devoted to the work of American artist Bruce Nauman (b. 1941). Opening at Schaulager in March 2018 and traveling to The Museum of Modern Art in September of that year, the exhibition will be the first comprehensive retrospective of the artist’s work across all mediums in over 20 years, and will build upon the rich holdings of the two organizing institutions. Covering his entire career, from the earliest fully realized sculptures of 1965 to his most recent work, the exhibition will provide an opportunity to experience Nauman’s command of a wide range of mediums, from drawing, printmaking, photography, and neon, to performance, video, film, sculpture, and large-scale installations—including Days (2009), a 14-channel sound installation for which Nauman won the Golden Lion for Best National Participation at the Venice Biennial in 2009. The exhibition is organized by Kathy Halbreich, Associate Director, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, with Heidi Naef, Senior Curator, Schaulager, and Magnus Schaefer, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Painting and Sculpture, The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Bruce Nauman is widely acknowledged as a central figure in contemporary art and one of the most influential artists of his time. Throughout his career, Nauman has continuously explored how ways of understanding ourselves in the world are structured by our phenomenological and psychological experience of time, space, sound, movement, and architecture, as well as by power relations and language. Repetition and permutation, the sudden flashes (or breakdowns) of meaning in wordplays and rebus-like objects, and fundamental philosophical and ethical questions hidden in plain sight behind brash dichotomies (good/bad, life/death) are key to his approach.

Support for the exhibition is provided by Laurenz Foundation.

Enoc Perez – Cut Shapes

Enoc Perez - Cut Shapes (4)

A word from the gallery:

Enoc Perez was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1967. He currently lives and works in New York. Known primarily for his multi-layered paintings of modernist buildings, throughout his twenty year career the artist has nevertheless engaged with a variety of subjects that appeal to him from voluptuous nudes to still lives of Don Q rum bottles.

Enoc Perez’s new photo collages engage with social media, appropriation, and the artist’s consistent and inventive search for new forms. Sourcing images from the internet of minimally dressed or nude women, from amateur selfies to more professional photos, Perez adds hand painted and cut collaged forms to both obscure and enhance the picture.

The cutout shapes function as censor’s marks – thwarting our ability to see the original image in its entirety while making it all the more attention-grabbing and voyeuristic. At the same time the collaged bits make it into a happy game, playful colors and forms replacing a need for more visual information and reminding the audience of the artist’s role in directing and delivering fresh ways of seeing.

Enoc Perez’s work belongs to the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Art Gallery, and the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, among other significant institutions throughout the United States. The first complete monograph on his work was published by Assouline in 2013.

Anish Kapoor – Château de Versailles

Anish Kapoor has taken over the Palace of Versailles. He’s installed 6 dramatic works, 5 in the gardens and one inside. Apparently there is some controversy but that is nothing new when contemporary art goes big. A quick glance at the works and the prudish problems of someone else fade quickly from the conversation.

Anish Kapoor - Versailles (1)

The contemporary art exhibition in Versailles always begins with a walk. The first encounter with the artist. Or rather the artist’s first encounter with Château de Versailles. Whether he or she already knows it or not, on that day they look at it differently, as if the prospect of setting up their works there opened their eyes.

How they look at it is more important than what they say: they take the measure of the unique architecture and size themselves in the light of this exceptional environment. From that first day, there is nothing other than that singular relationship where one is confronted to the other. We were walking with Anish Kapoor.

At a brisk step, with long land surveyor’s strides. Our long walk unfolded in a silence only interrupted by a few words about Le Nôtre, born on a 12th of March like Anish Kapoor – a small nod to history. When it finally came to an end, Anish Kapoor asked to think things over. How unnerving for us! What humility from an artist used to the grandest sites. A year later, Anish Kapoor proposed “his” itinerary in the gardens of Versailles. Like Giuseppe Penone, like Lee Ufan, he had secretly identified the works and the sites. Like them, with his sharp eye he had first calculated size and proportions. He magnificently inhabited the space of the Grand Palais in Paris in 2011 with his Leviathan, however he felt he needed to measure up to the 800 hectares of the Versailles grounds.

Beyond the topography of this territory conquered and disciplined by Louis XIV and his gardener Le Nôtre, the way Anish Kapoor, engineer and philosopher, architect and poet, grasps space, maybe takes us into his innermost thought. He has demonstrated here and there that the notion of space is uppermost for him; he has confided that he treats it as a “poetic idea”, not within its limits but with all it involves. What we see and do not see, the meanings accumulated in the course of history…

For Anish Kapoor, a work of art doesn’t exist alone but through its viewer. The visitor at Versailles will witness the dualities of artist’s work: heaven and earth, visible and invisible, inside and outside, shadow and light… This universe can be read through experience and imagination. The originality of this exhibition, what makes it unique, even to those who have long been familiar with Kapoor’s work around the world, is that in Versailles his vision meets an imagination set in stone by history. The very controlled landscape of Versailles is drawn into instability. The grounds become uncertain and moving. Waters swirl. Romantic ruins take hold of the Tapis Vert. Exposed interior orifices are hidden within the garden’s labyrinths. The mirrors that are so central to Versailles now distort it. This world is perhaps about to tip over. It is not by chance that Anish Kapoor was the first to push open the door to the Jeu de Paume, which he considers as a work of art in itself, to exhibit his installation.

Anish Kapoor draws us into a hidden history, within the boundaries of Versailles.

Tom Sanford – American Garbage

American Garbage print by Tom Sanford
American Garbage, Tom Sanford, archival pigment print, approx. 20 x 17 inches,
signed and numbered edition of 15, 2015.

NOWhere Limited is pleased to announce the exclusive release of a new, signed and numbered archival pigment print edition by Tom Sanford: American Garbage

ABOUT THE PRINT:
This high-resolution archival pigment print measures approximately 20 x 17 inches. The artist’s signed and numbered edition of 15 is printed on acid-free paper.

ABOUT THE IMAGE:
About this piece, Tom says:

Modified Master Paintings (The Rape of the Masters)

These paintings are the first in a new body of my work for which I have commissioned Chinese commercial painters to make reproductions of canonical works of western painting. I then have them shipped to my New York studio and alter them by painting over some, or almost all of, the original image.

The project was inspired by a visit to an exhibition of the work of Asger Jorn while visiting Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014. I was particularly interested in Jorn’s “Institute for Comparative Vandalisme” in which he modified or disfigured department store paintings as well as 19th-century salon paintings. It occurred to me that the availability of high quality but affordable reproductions of paintings from the Chinese commercial painters provided an opportunity to “modify” and attempt to “improve” any painting that one could find an image of on the internet. Certainly, in the case of Jorn’s paintings, the “modifications” were much more exciting, and to my eye much better, than the original paintings that he had started with. But the paintings Jorn started with weren’t all that good. It would be a greater challenge, and of more interest to me, to try to “modify” and perhaps “improve” some of the greatest paintings of the western canon. I selected a seven of my personal favorites and commissioned the Chinese commercial painters to reproduce them at 1:1 scale to the originals.

I think my interests and intentions might not have been the same as Jorn’s and the Situationists artists as his modifications seem intended to use painting language to point out that avant-guard provocation is a convention, and even a joke. At this point the avant-guard is quite clearly an antiquated notion, having been ridiculed for decades in popular culture, and not really my concern at all. I thought of the project as less intellectual and more emotional. What would it feel like to work into a great painting? To deface (and probably ruin) a work that one has the greatest respect for? What would happen when my starting point was a complete and probably perfect painting?

I found that it difficult to start these paintings. Usually, when I start a painting I have a clear idea of where I want to end that painting. This was not the case here. With these paintings the first move was to mess up the painting, then react to that and mess it up some more with more mistakes, and continue on that trajectory until hopefully, the painting would become a new and different thing, not just a vandalized version of the original. At the same time as wishing the painting to be a new painting, I wanted to leave just enough of the old painting so that the viewer could recognize the original starting point of the image.

I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that the problem of reworking these masterworks caused me real anxiety, or compounded my usual anxieties about money and family and other real-life concerns. I found myself sleeping less, drinking more and just being a little more grumpy than I usually am. I came to the conclusion that it was foolish to aspire to improve on these works, but I could hope to modernize them, rework them with a chaotic aesthetic that seemed more contemporary. I did not try to have a seamless integration of my modifications (as I sometimes try to do in my Mao paintings). Instead, I varied my style and painting approach to make it apparent that something here was old and something was new, but perhaps it is not immediately obvious exactly what I painted and what remains. In the end, the paintings are aggressive and chaotic in places but also have moments of care and consideration. I believe that these paintings reflect my anxiety and ambivalence about modifying and/or vandalizing the Masters. I am still digesting these works and what I have accomplished here…

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Tom Sanford is a New York-based artist whose work is exhibited around the world. His paintings, which range from historical works depicting celebrity assassinations to portraits of gangsta rappers and teen pop tarts to elaborate cosmologies weaved together from Hollywood movies, reflect a deep ambivalence about the American cultural condition.

Cildo Meireles

It’s been more than a decade since Brazilian Cildo Meireles has had a solo show in the US. Galerie Lelong in Chelsea will open with his works tonight.

Cildo Meireles
May 15, 2015 – June 27, 2015

More from the gallery:

Galerie Lelong is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in the United States in ten years by internationally renowned Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles, on view from May 15 through June 27. In addition to the monumental work Amerikkka, new works will be on view for the first time. Meireles’s investigation of ideological, economic, and political systems through sculpture, installation, and sensorial experience forms the cornerstone of his practice, which spans the artist’s extensive forty-year career. The artist will be present for the opening reception on Friday, May 15 from 6-8pm.

The centerpiece of Meireles’s presentation at Galerie Lelong will be Amerikkka (1991/2013), the work’s first presentation in the United States. Transforming the gallery into a powerful, interactive experience, the work places viewers under a free-standing ceiling angled at forty-five degrees that is composed of 40,000 hollow golden bullets set against an intense blue background. Viewers stand upon a base of over 20,000 white wooden eggs set into a red floor. Juxtaposing sharp bullets and fragile eggs, Amerikkka simultaneously creates an uncertain and unsettled environment and calls into question whether the work is opening or closing, and if the threat of the bullets is real or perceived. The triple “K” in the title alludes to the Ku Klux Klan, the far right organization that espouses white supremacy and the use of extreme violence.

Like Amerikkka, Virtual Spaces (1967-68/2014), one of Meireles’s seminal works, is dependent upon participation and movement by the viewer. This work, in which Meireles looks to Euclidean geometry, is a corner within a corner, an installation trompe l’œil, that highlights the question of that which is virtual versus what is real.

Invisible Sphere (2012) demonstrates Meireles’s interest in and exploration of the visible/invisible. This work, in which Meireles has constructed, carved, and joined two pieces of aluminum, creates a hollow sphere when closed. As Meireles has said “I think there is something very interesting about things that we can imagine, but which are hidden.”

Like many of Meireles’s works, Aquaurum (2015) is in response to specific political situations. Meireles’s native Brazil produces approximately 12 percent of the world’s fresh water, however, there is a chronic shortage in the country’s most populous city, São Paulo. The cleverly titled Aquaurum, which combines the Latin for “water” and “gold,” is comprised of two crystal glasses. The first is filled with gold, appearing as though it is the lining of the glass itself, the other filled with water.

Beginning in Brazil in the late 1960s, Meireles’s practice was shaped by the social and political conditions during the dictatorship of the time, as well as by the Neo-Concretist movement. Meireles was among the first artists from Latin America to become internationally recognized, beginning with his participation in the 1970 landmark exhibition, Information, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Since then, Meireles has been recognized as a pioneer and leader among artists working in politically and socially engaged conceptual art. Most recently, his work was the subject of a retrospective at the Reina Sofía in Madrid, which traveled to the Serralves Museum in Portugal, and part of the exhibition was also presented at the HangarBicocca in Milan.

Additional monographic shows have been presented at Tate Modern, London; Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona; Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro; Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain de Strasbourg; New Museum, New York; Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki; Institut Valencia d’Art Modern; and Institute of Contemporary Art, London; among others. The artist has received several prestigious awards, including the Velazquez Prize from the Ministerio de Cultura of Spain, and the Ordway Prize, presented by Creative Link for the Arts and the New Museum. Meireles was born in 1948 in Rio de Janeiro, where he currently lives and works.

Whitney Museum of American Art – New Building – Video Preview

The Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC will open the doors to the new building on May 1, 2015. We put together this video to give you a taste of their new home. The Renzo Piano designed space is perfect with amazing views of the city and Hudson River. The building will be cherished by New York for decades to come.

The Whitney Museum of American Art
Opens May 1, 2015
99 Gansevoort Street
NYC

Here’s what the Whitney has to say about the new space:

Designed by architect Renzo Piano, the new building will include approximately 50,000 square feet of indoor galleries and 13,000 square feet of outdoor exhibition space and terraces facing the High Line. An expansive gallery for special exhibitions will be approximately 18,000 square feet in area, making it the largest column-free museum gallery in New York City. Additional exhibition space includes a lobby gallery (accessible free of charge), two floors for the permanent collection, and a special exhibitions gallery on the top floor.

According to Mr. Piano, “The design for the new museum emerges equally from a close study of the Whitney’s needs and from a response to this remarkable site. We wanted to draw on its vitality and at the same time enhance its rich character. The first big gesture, then, is the cantilevered entrance, which transforms the area outside the building into a large, sheltered public space. At this gathering place beneath the High Line, visitors will see through the building entrance and the large windows on the west side to the Hudson River beyond. Here, all at once, you have the water, the park, the powerful industrial structures and the exciting mix of people, brought together and focused by this new building and the experience of art.”

The dramatically cantilevered entrance along Gansevoort Street will shelter an 8,500-square-foot outdoor plaza or “largo,” a public gathering space steps away from the southern entrance to the High Line. The building also will include an education center offering state-of-the-art classrooms; a multi-use black box theater for film, video, and performance with an adjacent outdoor gallery; a 170-seat theater with stunning views of the Hudson River; and a Works on Paper Study Center, Conservation Lab, and Library Reading Room. The classrooms, theater, and study center are all firsts for the Whitney.

A retail shop on the ground-floor level will contribute to the busy street life of the area. A ground-floor restaurant and top-floor cafe will be conceived and operated by renowned restaurateur Danny Meyer and his Union Square Hospitality Group, which operated +Untitled+, the restaurant in the Whitney’s Marcel Breuer building on the Upper East Side, until programming there concluded on October 19.

Mr. Piano’s design takes a strong and strikingly asymmetrical form—one that responds to the industrial character of the neighboring loft buildings and overhead railway while asserting a contemporary, sculptural presence. The upper stories of the building overlook the Hudson River on its west, and step back gracefully from the elevated High Line Park to its east.

After the opening of the new Whitney this spring, the Metropolitan Museum of Art plans to present exhibitions and educational programming at the Whitney’s uptown building for a period of eight years, with the possibility of extending the agreement for a longer term.

Emil Alzamora - Sculpture (6)

From the artist’s website:

Emil Alzamora was born in Lima, Peru in 1975. His family moved to Boca Grande, Florida when he was two. He later attended Florida State University where he graduated Magna cum Laude in 1998 earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. Alzamora harnesses a wide range of materials and techniques to deliver unexpected interpretations of the sculpted human figure. He often distorts, elongates, deconstructs, or encases his forms to reveal an emotional or physical situation, or to tell a story. Alzamora’s keen interest in the physical properties of his materials combined with his hands-on approach allow for the process to reveal and inform at once the aesthetic and the conceptual.

Alzamora started his sculpting career in the Hudson Valley of New York working with Polich Tallix in the fall of 1998. Since his departure from the art foundry in early 2001, he has produced his work full-time and shown regularly throughout the United States and Europe. Alzamora’s works have been exhibited in multiple solo and group shows, many national and international art fairs as well as the United Nations Building, Pepsico World Headquarters, The Queens Museum of Art, The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, and The Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas. His work has been reviewed by publications such as The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail, The L Magazine, El Diario, Boston Metro News, Juxtapoz, High Fructose, ArteFuse and Cool Hunting. He currently lives and works in Beacon, NY.

Polly Morgan – Short Sentences, Spoken Softly

Polly Morgan - Short Sentences, Spoken Softly

Short Sentences, Spoken Softly
Private View: 10th September
Exhibition: September 11 – October 22, 2014

458 Broome Street, SoHo, New York City

‘I have been more and more looking at animals formally and less symbolically. For me, the snake seems the most malleable creature, with which it’s possible to work less literally and more abstractly.’ Polly Morgan

Other Criteria presents an exhibition of new work by London-based artist Polly Morgan. Her first show solo show in the US, the exhibition will also mark the first exhibition at Other Criteria’s New York outpost, which opened in May 2014.

Morgan is an accomplished taxidermist who uses her skills to create work in a contemporary context. The exhibition consists of a group of unique sculptures, using taxidermy snakes. In each of the works, the artist playfully navigates between beauty and fear, attraction and repulsion, by shaping these anxiety-inspiring creatures into a series of graceful loops, knots and arabesques. Taking taxidermy away from its gothic associations and revealing more Modernist influences. Removing the animal from it’s usual associations and symbolism, treating them as sculptural materials.

All the animals used in the artist’s work have died from natural causes. No animals are killed for the purpose of making the work.

Björk Retrospective coming to MoMA in 2015

The Museum of Modern Art has announced a retrospective covering the diverse body of work by one of our favorite artists, Björk. We’re thrilled, read the details from MoMA below.


Still from the “All Is Full of Love” music video. 1999. Directed by Chris Cunningham. Music by Björk.

The Museum of Modern Art announces that it will present a full-scale retrospective dedicated to the multifaceted work of the composer, musician, and artist Björk in 2015. Organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large at MoMA and Director of MoMA PS1, the exhibition Björk draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s daring and adventurous projects and her seven full-length albums—from Debut (1993) to Biophilia (2011)—to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, costumes, and performance. The installation will present a narrative, both biographical and imaginatively fictitious, cowritten by Björk and the acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson. Björk’s collaborations with video directors, photographers, fashion designers, and artists will be featured, and the exhibition culminates with a newly commissioned, immersive music and film experience conceived and realized with director Andrew Huang and 3-D design leader Autodesk. Björk will be on view from March 7 through June 7, 2015; MoMA is the sole venue.

“Björk is an extraordinarily innovative artist whose contributions to contemporary music, video, film, fashion, and art have had a major impact on her generation worldwide,” said Mr. Biesenbach. “This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugelycollaborative body of work.

If I Live I’ll See You Tuesday – Contemporary Art Auction

Christie’s has a fantastic new auction coming soon. If I Live I’ll See You Tuesday… grabs it’s title from a Richard Prince painting of the same name. We love the video that Director Gary Gardner put together to promote the sale. Follow professional skateborder Chris Martin through storage and the main galleries as highlights from the upcoming auction are revealed.

“We all have memories of a song or a melody that was so strong and perfect that it became ingrained in our minds and somehow formed the backdrop of our youth. The same can be said about art, and with this auction I have sought to bring together these special works that have left a lasting imprint on the visual hard drive of our generation. Jeff Koons’s Equilibrium series, Richard Prince’s Cowboys, Andy Warhol’s Electric Chairs, and Dan Colen’s Candle paintings all have this wow-factor that made them immediate modern day icons. If I Live I’ll See You Tuesday… will be a rare opportunity to see these radical works activating each other.” – Loïc Gouzer, International Senior Specialist.

iCODA – interactive audio visual app

The latest versions of the iCoda project were released this February. Four international artists created content for this exciting interactive audio visual app, including Elisha Sarti, co-founder of NOWhere Limited.


Screen capture from iCoda Sarti

The iCoda software creates an ever-changing collage of images from an included library randomly mixed and displayed on a device’s screen in reaction to amplitude and duration of audio from either an external source or a preset soundtrack. It is available from iTunes and is compatible with the iPhone and iPad.


Screen capture from iCoda NER

Newcastle, England based multidisciplinary artist Peter McAdam developed the iCoda. The concept is an extension of his “moving palimpsest” idea, a theme he’s explored with video, sound and other media since a flood damaged his childhood photos and inspired an aesthetic of image layering.


Screen capture from iCoda DDCP


Screen capture from iCoda Carson

For the most recent libraries loaded to the iCoda app, McAdam invited fellow creatives to produce content. These pre-loaded libraries feature sound and/or images from:
