Most of the art world in NYC is head over heels crazy just now and with good reason...Yes, it's Armory Week again! So in the midst of finishing your gallery install and procuring your VIP passes, we offer a few suggestions to add to your art fair itinerary; basically, wherever Brooklyn is at the various art fairs, so too should you be.
We start with the Big Daddy and namesake of the week, The Armory Show. We mention Pierogi's presence there (because they are awesome and we love them) but especially because you can take the gallery out of Brooklyn but you can't take Brooklyn out of the gallery! So please find Pierogi (on Pier 94 Booth 744) offering a selection from their fine stable of artists as well as on Pier 92 (just to the side of the main entrance) where they offer "Slow Motion Car Crash" by artist Jonathan Schipper; an actual car moves 1/4 inch per hour into a static wall, resulting in the eventual demolition of the object in real time...American politics anyone?
At Art On Paper please find first-class gallerist Owen Houhoulis and his Owen James Gallery (booth P3) where he will show examples of his expanding programming including Lilliputian gems from artist duo Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao as well as the always-alluring works of Norwegian based Elin Rodseth.
The Pulse Art Fair (125 W. 18th St, Manhattan) shows 3 Brooklyn stalwarts; Front Room Gallery (booth A-301) showing new NASA-themed watercolors by Thomas Broadbent, Black & White Projects (booth A-105) showing photo-constructions from Isidro Blanco, and Honey Ramka (booth A-117) offering engaging works on paper from warlock of visual media, artist Lars Van Dooren.
Last but not least, find everyone else from Brooklyn at the teeming and triumphant SPRING/BREAK Art Show a curator driven art fair that offers much greatness, including Rachel Phillips (from The Parlour Bushwick) showing sensorial works by Katie Bell, Andy Cross, Max Warsh, and Robin Kang among others. Jennifer McCoy and Jennifer Dalton (of Auxiliary Projects) offer works by Susan Hamburger, and artist/curator Will Hutnick teams with curator Christopher Stout (of Christopher Stout Gallery) to show a lively mix of works including those by Anne SherwoodPundyk, Polly Schindler, and MaDora Frey. Also at SPRING/BREAK don’t miss Krista Saunders Scenna (of Ground Floor Gallery) presenting a dizzying array of touching works including narrative polaroids from artist/curator/critic Brendan Carroll as well as artist Linda LaBella teaming with artworks and memories of her secretly artistic father, the late Nick LaBella. Be on the lookout also for what's sure to be a great show from the artist/curators of Present Company (Vince Contarino, Brian Balderston, Chad Stayrook, and Jose Ruiz) as well as a sure to wow solo presentation of gifted mystical painter Matthew F. Fisher from 106 Green Director John Lutz. On Saturday Evening, March 5th, Bushwick Gallery Late Night, 24 Galleries in the Bushwick area will keep their doors open until 9pm! A perfect chance to catch up with any shows you were intending to see or just want to re-visit! Enjoy the Fairs. Stay BK.
It's that time of year again, filled with holidays of all sorts, jacket weather. When you head out to an opening, it will certainly be as dark as midnight even if it's 4pm. Some of the galleries are packing up for Art Basel Miami, and some are boarding up for winter. With so many distractions, plus the urge to hibernate, how will the art world keep our attention here in NY? The Winter group show! That's right! you and thirty of your closest friends will be exhibiting in a gallery near you, and just in time for those seasonal presents you might be pondering.
At last count there were more than a dozen exhibitions opening in November and December in Brooklyn that feature more than fifteen artists. That means that in a jaunt around Brooklyn you might possibly see works by more than 180 artists. So you might just consider cancelling that trip to Miami and sticking around here.
In Red Hook the venerable Kentler International Drawing Space is celebrating a quarter of a century in business with a show chock-full of stalwarts of the Brooklyn art community.
In Williamsburg, Figureworks is opening "Life Drawings," featuring works from the weekly Saturday morning sessions that it has held for over fifteen years (for artists who don't sleep in Saturday morning and then go directly out to brunch). Pierogi has a group exhibition titled "Identities," with portraits and narrative works centered around the concept of identity, with works by the crowd-pleasing artists that you'd expect from Pierogi.
This Fall Greenpoint definitely takes the prize for best show titles, with "Calicornicopia 4" opening at Calico and "The Show Me State" opening atAuxiliary. "Calucornicopia 4" is Calico's annual holiday show, featuring reasonably priced artworks aimed at the seasonal audiences. "The Show Me State" is a delightful exhibition built on the themes of desire and display (and having absolutely nothing to do with Missouri).
In BushwickTSA (Tiger Strikes Astroid) pulls open their drawers again for "Flat Files: Year Three" with 33 artists selected from an open call and working in all mediums. Be sure not to miss "Volume 2: Black & White," which is still up through December 6th at Schema Projects, and was curated by Mary Judge and WAGMAG's very own Enrico Gomez. "Volume:2" explores the ways in which artists respond to paper and transform it from the 2 dimensional into the 3 dimensional in innovative and engaging ways. Wayfarers opens it's "Family Album" in December, displaying the artists that have been near and dear to them in the past 5 years.
In DumboMinus Space presents "Fiber Optic," featuring artists working on the intersection of geometry and fiber and brings together a multi-generational cast of artists from across the country. "Subtle Interchange" at NARS Foundation in Sunset Park features selections from the works of its season IV artists in its residency program.
And again this year Open Source Gallery in Park Slope will host it's December "Soup Kitchen," in which artists are invited to cook dinner and present artwork (visual, performance, music) for all comers. Open Source does this EVERY NIGHT in December. It's just crazy, and crazy fun! Be sure to dress warmly though.
