Entang Wiharso's Promising Land Runs April 9 To May 14, 2017 At Marc Straus (299 Grand St., New York). There will be an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m., Sunday, April 9.
Wiharso is one of Indonesia's top contemporary artists. He splits his time between Indonesia and Rhode Island (with his wife and partner, Christine Cocca and their kids). His work reflects this duality. The work often takes the form of frieze-like metal art. Both Eastern and Western images and motifs find their way into the work. He also does three dimensional pieces in graphite.
Trish Tillman's Stage Diver runs April 6 to May 13, 2017 at Asya Geisberg Gallery (537B West 23rd St., New York). There will be a reception from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, April 6.
Tillman's sculptures combine handmade and manufactured metal, hand-sewn and upholstered geometric shapes that reference the gaudy, faux-luxury items and flashy (some might say cheesy) fashion.
Sebastião Salgado's "Kuwait" Opens At Sundaram Tagore Gallery (New York) March 30, 2017 (Salgado Will Be At The Opening)
Sebastião Salgado's Kuwait runs at Sundaram Tagore Gallery (547 West 27th St., New York) from March 30 to April 20, 2017. There will be a reception, with the artist, from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 30. Salgado will be signing copies of two of his books--Kuwait: A Desert on Fire (Taschen, 2016) and Genesis (Taschen, 2013).
It isn't hyperbole to write that Salgado is one of a handful of living photographers who can be called "the greatest living photographer." His work is somewhere between fine art and journalism; they are beautiful and often horrifying.
The Kuwait series are photographs taken near the end of the Iraq War, when the desert was full of burning oil wells. These images first appeared in The New York Times Magazine back in 1991 and won the Oskar Barnack Award. The award recognizes work that highlights the relationship between humans and the environment. Anyone aware in 1991 remembers the hellish images from the oil fields after Saddam Hussein's troops set them alight.
In conjunction with this exhibit Sundaram Tagore opens select images from Salgado's Genesis series at their other location--1100 Madison Ave. beginning April 1, 2017.
Also? If you haven't seen the documentary, Salt of the Earth? Go get a copy.
Virgins, work by Betty Tompkins, runs March 30 to May 6, 2017 at P.P.O.W. (535 West 22nd St. New York). There will be a reception from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 30.
Tompkins is a pioneering feminist artist known for her depictions of sexuality, desire and the female body. The pieces to be shown have never been shown in New York. These include the artist's large, Fuck Paintings, a new installation of Pussy Paintings and new works on paper. Her work often uses porno images as a starting point.
These are works that makes you look at images and subjects (oddly) seen as taboo. This is a must-see exhibit.
"Awkward," The Latest Exhibit At Anna Zorina Gallery (New York) Features Work By A Variety Of Artists
Awkward is the latest exhibit from Anna Zorina Gallery (533 West 23rd St, New York) features work by: John Bradford, Katherine Bradford, Siro Cugusi, Shaun Ellison, William Hawkins, Paul Housley, Cristina Lama and Tim Stone.
There will be an opening 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 30th.
The exhibit, curated by Ellison, features artists whose work denys the technical conventions of realism. These pieces are direct, instinctive and spontaneous. You may sense something "ungraceful" in the pieces but that is just part of what makes this exhibit....awkward.
Galleries, shows and more on ART. Part of the aim of this is to "demystify" art. You are allowed to enjoy art even if you weren't an art major in college.
