Loretta Kaufman’s acrylic painting “Quartet:  Series M” was selected to be part of Geometry, a juried exhibition at Site: Brooklyn Gallery in September and October 2019.  The exhibition was open to artists worldwide over the age of 18.  There are 50 works in a wide range of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, wall mounted sculpture, collage and video relating to geometry, spanning subject matter, medium, form.  The exhibition opens on September 20 with a Reception from 6 – 9 pm and closes on October 21, 2019. Gallery hours Wed – Sat, 1 – 6 pm.  The gallery’s address is 165 7th St., Brooklyn, New York. Phone: 718-625-3646. 

Site: Brooklyn Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting the current practice of contemporary artists.  This exhibition will illustrate how geometry and art have a deep and intertwined history, and that geometric forms provided classical proportions, complex symbols, and linear perspective.  Many well-known artists including Frank Stella and Mondrian opened up an entirely new language using geometry to get to the roots of form and perception.

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

CPR - Center for Performance Research’s Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program seeks to support a wide range of artists from emerging choreographers to established companies, working within the various aspects of dance and performance. Since its inception in 2012, with the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CPR’s AiR Program has provided up to 15 artists per year (selected by invitation) with 100 hours of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours at advanced booking. In an effort to create a more inclusive and equitable selection process, we are piloting an open call application by a peer artist committee this year. The committee will review applications, and through a scoring and discussion process, select CPR’s AiRs for 2020. Using this approach, CPR aspires to increase visibility, opportunities, and resources for a diverse range of dance artists in the field.

Our 2020 AiR Program will provide 10 artists with an increase of deeply subsidized rehearsal hours (150) with advance booking privileges and a $1,000 stipend. Artists will have opportunities to share their current practice with the larger CPR and NYC dance communities, have several informal opportunities for community engagement, and receive complimentary time in the large studio to share their practice with other AiRs. 

CPR's AiR program is supported by Dance/NYC’s New York City Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, an initiative made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Additional funding generously provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

PRATT SCHOOL OF DESIGN PRESENTS: TEXTILE THINKING

Share

Category:

Type:

Country:

September 15-30, 2018

Artist Talk: September 30, 3 - 4pm

The exhibition “Textile Thinking” highlights the vibrant and provocative conversations that the faculty and students of the School of Design participate in while interrogating textiles. The field of textiles is a wellspring of inspiration to both the fashion, product and interior design program’s material explorations and theoretical thinking.

As they work outside of the academic structure of a traditional textile program, the students and faculty at the School of Design bring energy, focus and a pragmatic naiveté to the subject of textiles. The exhibition illustrates this conversation through student course work and selected professors’ theoretical and professional endeavors relating to textiles.

Catch As Catch Can

August 9 - 29, 2018

Opening Reception: August 9, 6:30 - 9pm      

 

Paige Beeber, Melissa Capasso, Madeline Donahue and Estefania Velez Rodriguez   

 

We are all drawn to story and, for better for for worse, the reflection of our own image. Moving beyond the current fads of social media and the prevalence of the “selfie” we have always been fascinated by the human - both our own unique experience and the lives of others. As humans we have an innate need to understand and to be understood. Stories allow us to both connect to our shared humanity, and conversely, to walk around in another person’s shoes - to step outside of our own perspective. Artists working in narrative tap into this urge, and employing the human form or even just a hint of it - a leg, an eye - are able to speak volumes. 

The artists of “Catch As Catch Can” reflect a sort of gritty honestly in their unique story-telling as well as a sometimes dark sense of humor; life is after all a beautiful, messy, comical and at times a tragic enterprise. There is a certain fearlessness in presenting the human experience and form as raw and flawed. This is particularly true as it applies to the female, which has historically been filtered through the male ideal of “perfect mother” or “sex goddess.” Moving beyond this sanitized and limited view, Beeber, Capasso, Donahue and Velez Rodriguez all weave vivacious and thought-provoking stories out of seemingly banal situations and everyday occurrences. 

Beeber’s paintings, direct and cheeky, explore and respond to the daily indignities of the modern day woman. These snippets unfold in comical, and at times uncomfortable scenes. Dissected limbs precariously dance around everyday objects and symbols of daily peril like dull razors, tampons, and the ever present and leering male gaze.  

Capasso allows mercurial notions of motherhood, femininity, gender, sex, and politics to spill onto the paper. Each work is a sounding board where thoughts and feelings are wrestled with, and at times set free like an exorcism. Honest and irreverent, human forms fuse with symbolism to create knotted, self-contained novels that need to be unbound. 

Donahue’s paintings and sculptures act as unabashed tableaus of motherhood and the female experience. Although personal and at times tender, these are not picturesque. Rather, her work presents comical scenes of everyday life rarely addressed in art - the postpartum body, a mother awkwardly contorting to breastfeed her baby, and the strange balancing act of life with a toddler.

Velez Rodriguez’s paintings read like a singular scene from an unfolding novel or perhaps a film still. The heavy brushstrokes and vibrating neon colors hint to the musings of an artist, who grapples with identity as well as a yearning for connectedness with the cultures, people and places that both inhabit her past and define her present. 

Gallery Hours are August 10, 5-7pm, August 11-12, 1-3:30pm, August 28-29, 1-3:30pm, and by appointment. For inquiries please contact brozynaprojects@gmail.com.
