Chris Chandler : MACHINE THEORY

Machine Theory focuses on the study of relative motion between numerous machine components and the forces that act on them. Chandler adopts elements of this theory with his large-scale printworks, working in modes of deconstruction and reconstruction with modular type and letterpress printmaking. Machine Theory pays homage to the tools Chandler uses in his practice, namely, a Vandercook 232P letterpress machine, Alpha-Blox, and Futura Schmuck woodcut fonts. Chandler and his father describe his artmaking practice as “Art-Mechanica”, a nod to his beloved letterpress machine and inspiration for the exhibition’s title, Machine Theory. As Chandler puts it “using the mechanics of ‘the machine’ to guide the process of the print.”


Cristin Tierney Gallery

Open through July 21, 2023 | 10 AM - 8 PM

Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins : Balancing Act

At the center of Marman and Borins' exhibition is a claw machine based on the classic arcade game. Gallery visitors are invited to play the larger-than-life machine, using a joystick to direct a crane to pick up and rearrange geometric shapes into balanced compositions. Crafted by hand and covered in wool felt, these sculptural forms are designed in a variety of shapes and colorful hues. They are stackable and endlessly reconfigurable, with no one correct arrangement or defined goal.

Casey Tang : To Carry the Earth

Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is pleased to present artist Casey Tang’s new exhibition, To Carry the Earth, a spatialized audio and sculptural installation that investigates the limitations of dominant Western dialectical logic and egocentric frames of reference. Drawing from the artist’s extensive research into the history of systems science and psycholinguistic spatial frames of reference (FoR), the site-specific project speaks to the ways individuals, communities, and cultures make sense of the multiscalar processes underlying the phenomena we experience.


Equity Gallery

June 15 - July 15, 2023 | 12 - 8 PM

Various artists : Siren

In ancient Greece and up through the modern era, poets and painters have portrayed seemingly guileless, chimeric creatures with enchanting voices that unfortunately forebode destruction. One imagines that in our present time the siren’s song grows ever louder –like an incessant gale wind.

May 27 - June 25, 2023 | 4 - 7 PM

Nancy Powhida, curated by Kristen Jensen : Oh dear! Our life was like a horror show! (no wonder you had to learn to be resourceful) Early Works of Nancy Powhida

The exhibition presents works on paper and painting from Nancy Powhida depicting tableaus that manifest the difficulties of raising two children as a single mother, while contending with her own feelings of isolation from her family, its history, and her sense of otherness. 



34 E Broadway, New York, NY 10002

June 1 - July 9, 2023 | 4 - 8 PM


The future means acceleration. Shinier cars, younger skin, lightspeed transactions, endless growth. Yet perfection feels out of reach when we discard our progress to keep up with newer, faster, better, more. In Future Perfect, Becky Yazdan asks us to look beyond these expectations towards the beauty already abounding in our day-to-day lives—no matter how imperfect. By re-injecting the mess and uncertainty of uncharted ground into the bedrock of her past experiences, the artist unearths limitless futures.

Laurel Gitlen announces Leaking Heaven, a group exhibition that will take place across both gallery spaces from June 2 - July 7, 2023. This group exhibition gathers several works that are characterized by state changes. Architecture gives way to drooping textiles, liquids harden, and matter diffuses into thin air –– an upending of material that posits an alternative ethos, an unsettling of terms, or an insistence on flux. It might also be a collection of synecdochical propositions - of tools, objects and fragments that interrogate social and cultural situations.


LES Gallery @ The Clemente 

107 Suffolk St, New York, NY 10002

April 21 - June 16, 2023 | 11 AM - 7 PM

Juan Santiago Uribe, Alejandro Tobón, Andrés Monzón, Lorena Zuluaga Cardona : Arrume

This exhibition is about how we inhabit and move through certain areas, and how some things end up becoming others. There is a common concern among us with territory, with customs and traditions; a tendency to collect, to wander through fairs, public spaces, parties; a concern with desire… Arrumes in shops and markets, at home, in the barrio, in the city, in the country; a concern for the bodies that we go through, and the bodies that go through us.

June 1 - June 24, 2023 | 12 - 8 PM

Vian Borchert, Philip Gerstein, Augustus Goertz, Sandra Gottlieb, Victoria Lowe, Joyce Pommer, Martin Weinstein : LEMON SKY

LEMON SKY, an exhibition bringing together work in various media, from abstraction to abstracted representation, that comments on the color of a lemon summer sky when the blue turns yellow, and when the air simmers in the heat — amidst bountiful fields and over shores and beaches. Here, the work is connected by color  —  from light hues of pale yellow to a yellow-richer palette, or side by side other colors, emphasizing the strength of a color that alludes to the heat of a summer day under the scorching sun. Curator-Led Exhibition Walk Thru at 6 PM followed by a RECEPTION: THURSDAY, JUNE 15 | 6-8 PM

McKenzie Fine Art 

55 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002

May 12 - June 25, 2023 | Until 8 PM

Don Voisine : Don Voisine

In Don Voisine’s taut and elegant paintings, simple geometries are set against light or dark grounds, flanked top and bottom by bands of contrasting color. In this latest body of work, diamond and lozenge shapes and cruciform arrangements predominate. Rather than working with forms gleaned from architecture or other references, most of the new work returns to standard geometric shapes. However, the move towards more purely abstract imagery has not precluded an exploration of architectonic and sculptural space in these new paintings.

May 17 - June 25, 2023 | 12 - 6 PM

Faye Wei Wei : Tiny Melody Chamber

SITUATIONS is proud to present Tiny Melody Chamber, British artist Faye Wei Wei’s first solo exhibition in New York. On view will be new oil paintings and drawings made in the artist's distinctive, gestural style. A nonchalant cast of personas inhabit the spacious compositions of Wei Wei’s works, seen kissing, singing, slumbering or else looking outward to return the viewer’s gaze. Interweaving references drawn from lived experience, literature, art history, and culture at-large, Wei Wei takes a lyrical approach to figuration, creating complex yet open-ended narratives each a world unto itself.

Movement of the Triangle is the third exhibition at Snow Gallery as well as the third in a series. Taking its title from Kandinsky’s Concerning the Spiritual in Art, this show brings together 19 healers, artists, & magicians (ages 15 to infinity) who are paving a way forward, helping carry a torch through the darkness. This exhibition explores many familial connections, both blood and intentional, forming an ever growing constellation of healing. The boundaries between art and life are illusory.

June 6 - June 25, 2023 | 11 AM - 8 PM

Jason McLean, Devon Marinac, Kevin Wendall (FA-Q) : Mind Mapping . . . And Other Stories

Feeling becomes thought and thought becomes expression, with color and line, with the image that illustrates the outside world meeting the inner world to translate what is new of the street and community and how the mind comes to understand this while mapping itself as part of it. Through figure or symbol, abstraction or colorful cynicism, Jason Mclean, Devon Marinac, and Kevin Wendall (FA-Q) map the spheres of thought and feeling across the sidewalks, and bookshelves, and bars and faces of those around all of us for all of us to take in.
