212 Bowery

April 9 – May 14, 2022

Dan Miller; Large Works, 2015-2021

Domenico Zindato: By the River of Multiple Suns

For 30 years, Miller has created enigmatic text-based abstractions consisting of dense layerings of letters, symbols, and words. The artist, who is both autistic and largely non-verbal, records in the works his thoughts and interests, specifically relating to mechanics (lightbulbs, fans and electrical sockets) as well as the names of cities he has visited, people to whom he is close, and foods he enjoys. / Best known for his masterfully elaborate and vibrant pastel and ink drawings, Zindato (b.1966) continues to expand on the unique visual lexicon he has been developing for nearly 30 years, filling his compositions with layered patterns and recurring motifs which serve as the main ingredients of his mesmerizing topographies.

54E Henry Street

March 26 - April, 24, 2022

Obsessions; Anna Nero

For artist Anne Nero, the tension between spontaneity and control blossoms into paintings which take on their own idiom. In a challenge to her own obsessive qualities, primarily the mastery of paint, Nero welcomes in the outside world—the influence of playful, banal and intrusive elements into works that otherwise are feats of exactitude.

54E Henry Street

March 26 – May 1, 2022

Battleground; Yuan Fang

Yuan Fang was born in Shenzhen, China in 1996. Her work has been exhibited at the Hive Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing, Latitude gallery in New York and Bill Brady Gallery in Los Angeles, among others. Fang is currently an MFA candidate at the School of Visual Arts and expected to graduate in summer 2022.

99 Bowery, 2nd Floor

March 25 - April 23, 2022

Questions to Ask Beforehand; Morgan Bassichis

Questions to Ask Beforehand is the first solo gallery exhibition by Morgan Bassichis, a comedic performer who has been described as “fiercely hilarious” by The New Yorker; “evasive” by multiple close friends; and “I think an actor, but hasn’t gotten any roles?” by their father. The show will include “art, for sure,” according to Bassichis, who has promised “big dividends.”

143B Orchard Street

April 7 - May 6, 2022

This is not an ideal time; Luba Drozd and Lesia Maruschak

An exhibition featuring contemporary Ukrainian artists.

245 Broome Street, New York, NY 10002

April 6 - 30, 2022

Sans Toi; Sarah Kurz, Iris Lan, Kristina Libby, and Julia Whitney Barnes.

Anticipation. What ifs. Anxiety. Time suspended. Two years into a global pandemic and now living under the dark clouds of war, we’re caught in a liminal space of waiting for what’s next while confronting our own mortality. The artists in the exhibition bring us new perspectives of memento mori and the imbuing of beauty into reminders of the inevitability of death. Through painting, film, sculpture and music, the works help us process the world around us, understand the passage of time and perhaps conjure a call to action.

169 Bowery

March 30 – May 8, 2022

Forward Ground; Yevgeniya Baras, Avital Burg, Youmna Chlala, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Rahima Gambo, Daniel Giordano, Yvette Janine-Jackson, Lesia Khomenko, Oan Kim, Mollie McKinley, Levani (Levan Mindiashvili), Daniel Neumann with Alarm Will Sound, Adjani Okpu-Egbe, Claudia Peña Salinas

Forward Ground is a multidisciplinary exhibition highlighting the work of fourteen contemporary artists. They take the inability to relive the past as a point of departure, turning friction into textures, creating new forms through inventive use of familiar materials, moving their (back)ground forward.

34 E Broadway

April 14 - May 22, 2022

feeling our way forward; Magnolia Laurie

Magnolia Laurie’s new works started with an interest in the duality of the horizon line as both a means of orientation and a dividing point. The horizon line reveals a viewer’s vantage point and implies a position and connection to the landscape. It also carves through space, delineating between land and sky, here and there, now and then, us and them.

162 Allen Street

March 17 – April 23, 2022

Kira Dominguez Hultgren: Luz Jiménez

Heroes Gallery is pleased to present works by contemporary artist Kira Dominguez Hultgren in conversation with the history of Nahua-Mexican artist, model, Nahuatl-language educator, storyteller and weaver Julia “Luz” Jiménez (1897-1965). By engaging with documentation and artwork about Jiménez’s life and the influence she had on the Mexican Modernist School, Dominguez Hultgren weaves an accumulation of cultural narratives and intertwined identities. How is weaving used to authenticate identity both in Jiménez’s life and in Dominguez Hultgren’s? Self-described Chicanx, Indian and Hollywood Hawaiian, Dominguez Hultgren sees her ancestry mirrored in her weaving; an embodiment and performance of strange combinations. She weaves in the tension between performing and preserving cultural identity and finding one’s self within the romanticized ideal of the indigenous woman at her loom.

124 Forsyth Street

March 17 - April 24

Changing Planes; Jill Levine

nterconnecting planes of white create an optical push-and-pull with the wall, while the color patterns— painted in oil— have a rhythmic timing, interspersed within structural black lines of a consistent width, serving as a kind of skeletal energy vector. She uses directionality to imply movement and keep the objects looking as if they are in a constant state of transition. The markings also suggest camouflage for a world of Levine’s invention, bringing the viewer to wonder about the place these objects might inhabit; what flora exists there, what environmental obstacles spawned these forms.

561 Grand Street New York, NY 10002

April 4 - May 7, 2022

LORE; Cecile Chong

Kates-Ferri Projects is pleased to announce the gallery’s first solo show, LORE, an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Cecile Chong. Born in 1960s Ecuador to Chinese parents, Chong grew up in Quito and Macau and studied in New York City. In her newest series, Chong uses Eastern and Western figures from vintage children’s books and found images to create a cross-cultural mythology. Relinquishing narrative control, she invites viewers to reinterpret the invented stories as their own. Culture is the stories people tell, and Chong’s work celebrates the commonality of the human experience in an increasingly divided world.

173 Henry Street Ny Ny 10002

April 7 - April 30, 2022

MINIMAL FORCE; Gretl Bauer, Carol Boram-Hays, Leslie Ford, Philip Gerstein, Francie Lyshak and Arlene Santana Thornton.

Exhibition with mainly minimal work, painting, sculpture and works on paper, that invokes visually and theoretically the sensation and the concept of Push and Pull –  and its impact –  achieved with seemingly minimal exertion and with various subtle, carefully crafted and sublimely executed media. The balancing act between these forces within one work created by mixing colors, materials, textures or shapes, ultimately and ideally –  results in a ‘calm within the storm’ of its Push and Pull. While the six artists work distinctly different from each other, the result of seeming calmness, propelled and executed with minimal combined force – aims to connect them congruously and is paramount to the concept of the exhibition. Concept by Priska Juschka with a RECEPTION, THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 6-8 PM.

299 Grand Street, New York, NY 10002

April 21 - June 4, 2022

41 Elizabeth St

March 26th – April 30th, 2022

FRICTIONAL ARCHAEOLOGY; Ryan Foerster

FRICTIONAL ARCHAEOLOGY, Ryan Foerster’s first exhibition with Martos since 2012, examines the artist's wide-ranging practice through the prism of his photography. This exhibition highlights works from the last decade in which Foerster excavates technical slippages in the photographic medium and the apparatus of the camera, achieving plastic effects through manipulating and embracing faded emulsion, deteriorated film, defective lenses and chance occurrences in the darkroom.

55 Orchard Street

April 9 - May 8, 2022

Two Ways About It; Maureen McQuillan

For the past decade, Maureen McQuillan has been investigating the perception of color and linear movement through process-driven paintings that exploit the inherent properties of her materials. Beginning with black painted wood panels, McQuillan applies multiple layers of clear acrylic substrate onto which she systematically distributes pure ink colors; additionally, white ink lines are incorporated into each layer and are manipulated to fold and undulate. As layers accumulate, thin oval veils of luminous color are formed. The resulting compositions exhibit a web-like structure as translucent colors lie adjacent to and overlap opaque elements.

48 Hester Street

April 21 - May 15

Search PartyMatthew Haywood, Raymie Iadevaia, Michael Gac Levin, & Bruna Massadas

Imagine these four painters wading through dark woods, spread out, in a line, flashlights in hand. The beams overlap, double bright at the edges. Each scans the ground in front of them. Bruna trips over a dormant volcano while looking at an iridescent bird. Raymie sees a cat, lowers his hand to it, then screams that the forest is on fire. Matt was lighting candles everywhere, looking through his fingers like old window frames. In the long shadows, Michael finds his childhood dinner table and goes to sleep, mumbling about cut challahs and uncut pears. The warble of life, like a steam, surrounds the party of four. Something important vanished here once. They all know it. They watched it happen in a dream. They are here together, looking, to keep the memory fresh.

41 Orchard St

March 31 - May 21, 2022

Sensed As Well As Seen; Lucy Mullican

Olympia is delighted to present Sensed As Well As Seen, Lucy Mullican’s first solo exhibition in New York City. Mullican immerses herself in mediums of permanence and transience in found objects, embroidery, photography, painting and drawings done with natural homemade and artisanal pigments. Her curiosity is rooted in nature: land, water, and sky, from which she abstracts elements that intuitively evolve into familiar shapes, recalling existence and the soul.

176 Grand St, Second Floor, New York, NY 10013

March 19 - April 30, 2022

infinite plane; Rebecca Ward

Peter Blum Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition by Rebecca Ward of new paintings entitled, "infinite plane." This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Rebecca Ward continues to investigate painting’s multifaceted relationships with object, craft, and dimensionality through deconstructed and sewn canvases. In the exhibition’s new series of polychromatic horizontal paintings, formal elements emerge from Ward’s recent investigations into geometry, landscape, and the body.

140 Grand Street New York, New York 10013

April, 21 - June 4, 2022

Billions of Universes; Jan Dibbets

For his fourth solo exhibition at Peter Freeman, Inc., Jan Dibbets presents a selection of works from his latest series "Billions of Universes", shown here for the first time outside of Europe. These large-scale color digital prints demonstrate that there is no limit to image building by means of technology. Dibbets, a pioneering figure of conceptual art since the 1960s, was among the first artists to challenge the camera’s status as a documentary tool. With the BOU series (2019-2020), he continues to explore the role technology plays in the perception, representation, and reproduction of what we see.

You allowed the object of your love to become abstracted. And as one gets older the arteries harden. I thought I should let you know; Sarah Entwistle

For her second solo exhibition with the gallery, Sarah Entwistle presents an installation of ceramics, textiles, and 35mm slide projections. The assembled works hold formal, chromatic, and material lineage with the paper, card, celluloid, transfer sheets, etc. of the artist's continued site of inquiry — her late grandfather’s accumulated effects, largely dated to his final decade in New York.

208 forsyth street, nyc 10002

April 9th - May 14th, 2022

Several Places Several Stories; Phoebe Glouckner & Stipan Tadic

Two artists with backgrounds in cartoon and traditional academic art who explore often concealed or overlooked aspects of contemporary life. The works capture gritty, mysterious, and eccentric subject matter from the paradoxical perspective of intimate outsiders, revealing commonalities in even the most surprising places and stories. Gloeckner’s graphic novel Diary of a Teenage Girl was adapted into an award-winning feature film. Tadić earned his MFA from Columbia University in 2020.

WALKING THE LINE; Angel Ortiz LA II

LA II (a.k.a. Angel Ortiz, b. 1967) is a New York City graffiti artist best known for his collaborations with Keith Haring. Ortiz’s career took off after Haring spotted his “Little Angel” tag upon moving to New York and asked to meet the then-teenage artist. Throughout the ’80s, Haring and Ortiz combined their signatures to create murals, sculptures, train paintings, and other objects, and Ortiz’s style and technique are thought to have influenced Haring’s solo practice from then on.

Souls and Spirits; Group Show

Voltz Clarke Gallery is pleased to present SOULS AND SPIRITS, a group exhibition curated by Paul Conliffe. In SOULS AND SPIRITS Voltz Clarke celebrates the diversity of emerging artists based in Africa. The works centralize around cultural and personal identity, vibrancy, and innovative use of material. The chosen figurative artists establish various layers of Black excellence, and display evidence of a uniquely rich cultural heritage. The figurative paintings battle stereotypes regarding the concept of Blackness with innuendos of hope, resiliency, and strength.
