My Imaginary Friends Are New in Town:  Fabrizio Arrieta

My Imaginary Friends Are New in Town presents seven paintings, all made in 2021, featuring the artist’s characteristic alien-like creatures. The central work, El Secreto de la Verdad (The Secret of Truth), belongs to a group of large-scale paintings depicting arrangements of figures based on photographs drawn from fashion or lifestyle magazines. These images are transformed in a digital process and then re-constructed in acrylic paint.

Spain Rodriguez: Working Class Hero, curated by Dan Nadel; Spain Rodriguez, Robert Crumb, Gilbert Shelton, Johnny Craig, Willy Mendes, Robert Williams, Victor Moscoso, S. Clay Wilson

Andrew Edlin Gallery is pleased to announce Spain Rodriguez: Working Class Hero, its first show for the artist since announcing its representation of the estate. Curated by Dan Nadel, this career-spanning retrospective will include unique drawings for comics from the 1960s through the 1990s alongside sketchbooks, paintings, and ephemera. Spain Rodriguez (1940-2012), called the “socialist soul” of the 1960s underground comics movement, combined leftist politics, outlaw biker adventure, and science fiction in dynamically drawn stories. Robert Crumb, who has called Spain a mentor, said recently, “His politics were driven by genuine, authentic class anger, class hatred. It was always clarifying, bracing, to discuss politics, social and cultural issues with him.”

Bermuda Triangle; Cristine Brache

Bermuda Triangle, echoes a critical moment in which Cristine Brache was first required to question reality and confront the realization that things aren't always what they seem. Working in her usual way, the artist relates on a diaristic level and reflects relevant feelings to broader shared experiences, creating a stratified system of symbols.

This Phenomenal Overlay; Sahra Motalebi

In This Phenomenal Overlay, multiple scenes unfold simultaneously in an installation of set paintings and voice-sculptures. In one scene, analog instruments are reconfigured as future relics that upend categories of knowledge, complicating our assumptions about the voice and artistic production. In another scene, the artist's search for the etymologies of technological terms reveals historical forces and frameworks embedded in technology itself. The movement between the scenes of This Phenomenal Overlay traces the network of an archive through meaning-making and connection.

The exhibition, ART/WORK: How the Government-Funded CETA Jobs Program Put Artists to Work, is presented by City Lore and Artists Alliance Inc., as part of a long-term initiative, undertaken in conjunction with the Delaware Art Museum, exploring the impact of CETA on arts workforce development across the United States, and its relevance to recent efforts to include the arts community in the nation’s pandemic recovery.

Trees in Me, Project Room: What you wonder about is what you know- as well as the other way around: Areum Yang, Tom Thayer

For Areum: Derek Eller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Areum Yang. Deftly rendered with a mixture of raw and painterly gestures, Yang’s vivid, introspective portraits exist within anthropomorphic landscapes or surreal interiors. For Tom: Derek Eller Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new mixed media works and video animation by Tom Thayer. Spinning narrative through a multi-disciplinary approach, Thayer makes wall-based assemblages which frequently become the props in his animations or his live action performances.

a circle is a thought pattern: Cecilia Dougherty, Lucía Hinojosa Gaxiola, Anthony Leslie

Drawings, poetry and sound by 3 artists; outside of categories or commentary, sort of like a stream of water, a walk, or place to rest the mind. Resembling piles, these ephemeral but emphatically manual works exceed the time they exist in.

In the Field of the Other: Ilya Fedotov-Fedorov, Polina Kanis, Jura Shust, Igor Simic

Fragment Gallery (New York, USA and Moscow, Russia) is pleased to present a group exhibition of contemporary video work taking place concurrently at both their New York and Moscow gallery locations.

Acknowledging the gallery’s unique position across two culturally, historically, and politically opposed centers of power, the dual exhibitions will present four media works from Eastern European artists in New York which would otherwise not be seen in the United States, whilst simultaneously presenting in Russia four artists from North and South America whose work remains woefully elusive to spectators in the former Soviet republic. Each artist’s work will be screened individually for one week at a time.

A Hair Salon in Addis Ababa: Hana Yilma Godine

Fridman Gallery and Rachel Uffner Gallery present a two-venue solo exhibition by Ethiopian painter Hana Yilma Godine. The paintings portray female protagonists in domestic and public spaces of their own making: preparing for wedding celebrations, interacting in hair salons, resting in their living rooms. In a patriarchal society torn apart by a brutal civil war, Godine presents a parallel dimension where women are safe from violence and free to express themselves independently of social restrictions. She gently weaves her brushstrokes with collaged fabrics, at times leaving the flowery patterns untouched, at times letting them faintly show through the painted layers.

January 20 - February 27, 2022

Orbits; Lucy Beecher Nelson & Brad Nelson

In Orbits, Brad Nelson and Lucy Beecher Nelson meditate on family life through the people, things, and patterns that comprise their domestic reality. The artists’ two distinct bodies of work result not from direct collaboration but from their respective processes of translating the life they share with their daughters into works of art. Both artists center the physical space of their house as an axis around which their family’s idiosyncrasies, rituals, and daily patterns take shape; they think about their practices like two bodies orbiting each other.

Clouds & Ghosts: Ayano Nakano & Noritoshi Mitsuuchi

GR gallery is pleased to announce “Clouds + Ghosts”, a duo show featuring Japanese artists, Noritoshi Mitsuuchi and Lotta (Ayano Nakano). A well balanced and uplifting show that brings together a variety of characters that produce a whimsical charm and an everlasting story line. This show will feature 16 brand new artworks by the two artists that will highlight color and monochromatic creativity, engaging in a conversation about the infinite possibilities through which the artists alter egos—fixed on canvas through an exhilarating palette comparable to that of pop art—interact with one another.

John Divola: Frederick Sommer: John Divola & Frederick Sommer

Heroes Gallery is pleased to present previously unexhibited work by contemporary photographer John Divola in conversation with the work of 1940s surrealist photographer Frederick Sommer (1905-1999). Divola considers Sommer to be a fore-bearer due to his eclectic approach to image making, the materiality of his prints and the painterly abstraction in his 8x10 photographs of debris, animal carcasses and lonely, horizonless landscapes.

January 29 – March 13, 2022

Fever Logic: Eleanna Anagnos

Anagnos works with paper pulp to create work that bridges material, subject, and object as an investigation into themes of collective consciousness. Through an additive process, the sculptures resist binaries and examine and rearrange endless possible solutions to compositional and material concerns. Paper pulp is transformed to acquire a vulnerability full of inherent contradictions and metaphorical implications, recalling quotidian textures like skin or concrete. Within this structural dialogue, Anagnos questions how something can be its opposite, or have no opposite at all; be of the Earth, but not of this world, that is, the world of established letters and binary systems.

RESHUFFLE - curated by Robert Curcio and Priska Juschka.: Vian Borchert, Laura Duggan, Jane Fire, Edward Jackson, Don Keene, Joyce Pommer, Lenora Rosenfield, Alexandra Rozenman and Robert Solomon.

RESHUFFLE brings together work in various media that is comprised of elements of collage and assemblage within the process - addressing complexities such as reality and history, mind and psyche, experience and memory. The artists in RESHUFFLE reflect on the intricacies of the fragmented image, the obstructed view, shifting vision, and multiple picture planes in their work and compositions – and are united by a powerful sense for detail and by the affinity to making out of individual parts a whole. Concurrent with the exhibition will be a dArt International Issue Release with Reception on Thursday, February 17, 6 – 8 PM. Founder and publisher of dArt International, based in Toronto, Canada, creates a limited edition from the individual handcrafted spring/summer 2021 issue where he cuts a window into the cover to reveal a unique dArt International playing card; in another group, Rockwell strategically cuts the cover and subsequent pages of old issues – creating a new multi layered cover for each magazine.

Earth Work: Rafael Sánchez and Kathleen White

Rafael Sánchez and Kathleen White began to collaborate alongside their romantic partnership in Downtown New York in the mid-2000’s. Meeting one another amidst the ongoing AIDS crisis and post–9/11 New York, each artist found their practice touching on themes of grief, mortality, and caregiving, yet their most common point of intersection was an ability to glean raw material from New York City, down to its most urban and manmade details such as concrete and nightlife. The exhibition surveys each artist’s practice individually, while highlighting the points of intersection between their practices—both intentional and serendipitous, at times several decades apart, one artist unknowingly, perhaps unconsciously, predating the other.

Jane Freilicher and Thomas Nozkowski: True Fictions: Jane Freilicher and Thomas Nozkowski

This exhibition features paintings by both artists side by side for the first time. Curated by Eric Brown True Fictions came from ideas about their work expressed by Thomas Nozkowski. After Freilicher died in 2004, he wrote a tribute to her for the American Academy of Arts and Letters: “Jane Freilicher’s pictures are all will. Beyond their sweet surfaces and easy beauty they are hard as nails. They are tough-minded things.” Brown states “Tom could have been describing his own work.”

Who's That Girl?: Nina Childress

Nathalie Karg Gallery is pleased to present Who’s That Girl?, an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by the Franco- American artist Nina Childress. This will be Childress’ first exhibition with the gallery and her first solo exhibition in the United States. The highly expressive and shockingly colorful works on view explore the nature of celebrity, nostalgia, and the often- troubled relationship between youth and beauty; particularly as these things pertain to women known for their image or pop cultural impact. Some of the faces gracing the gallery’s walls are easily recognizable, others are less obvious and therefore beg the question: Who’s That Girl?

Under The Pergola: Andrea Belag

We are pleased to present a solo show of works on paper by Andrea Belag. The exhibition includes six works on paper: five gouache paintings and one monoprint. The gouache paintings emphasize the composition and gesture that emerge from working with a limited surface. They make up a series of smaller works that are precursory to Andrea’s large-scale oil paintings.

Olympia is proud to present Humor Has It, a serendipitous 14-person group exhibition devoted to mouthfuls of humor within the context of painting, works on paper, and sculpture. By exercising humor as a visual and verbal tool, this group of artists add, remix, and rearrange pre-existing thoughts, offering a reprogramming of systems, and of personal and social experiences.

Sargent’s Daughters is pleased to present The Past is Present, the first New York solo presentation of the work of Carole Harris, a Detroit based fiber artist whose career spans five decades. Often collecting found materials, Harris combines techniques from quilting, embroidery, and assemblages to produce abstract, wall mounted compositions.

You Pair How; Carol Szymanski

signs and symbols is pleased to present You Pair How, a new exhibition by Carol Szymanski, which continues the artist’s ongoing investigation into the transmutability of language and now extends to the analysis and translation of gesture. Since 2020, the artist has organized The Go-Between, a project in which Szymanski plays the role of an artist-matchmaker to anonymous participants. The “go-arounds” (or dates), captured in video and transmuted into Polaroid photography, sound and a wall painting incorporating neon, speak aesthetically to the underlying properties and patterns of gesture itself.

Simone Subal Gallery is pleased to present The Devil You Know featuring works by Davide Balula, Sam Ekwurtzel, Witt Fetter, Sophie Friedman-Pappas, and Nova Jiang. Borrowing half of the age-old cliché “better the devil you know than the devil you don't” as its title, this group exhibition explores the use of unconventional logic to make fun of, deconstruct, or contextualize systems that are no longer serving society well, yet somehow remain.

A base de viandas; Arien Chang Castan

Thomas Nickles Project is pleased to present, A Base de Viandas, by the Cuban photographer Arien Chang Castan, a series developed between 2010 and 2014 that celebrates the art of body building in Cuba, capturing a cultural sub-universe of unexpected tenderness and unabashed physicality amidst public and private moments where men build their own materiality, even their own gym equipment.

As a gallery that explores the many meanings of Outsider Art, Van der Plas aims to challenge the viewers notion of what art from a “neuroatypical” creator could look like. This exhibition features sculpture and works ranging from painterly freedom to geometric order.

Flow: Bradley Sabin and Lucy Soni

Voltz Clarke Gallery is pleased to present FLOW, a two-person exhibition featuring new works by artists Bradley Sabin and Lucy Soni. Both artists fervently explore the intersection of the organic with the constructed; the coordinated and the accidental; hard and soft. Such juxtaposition of medium and subject matter takes on a complimentary effect, emphasizing the ever-moving forces and gentle rhythms that contribute to the flow of everyday life. There will be a Public Opening Reception with the artists on Friday, January 7th, 2022.
