Jean-Pierre Villafañe:  Outside and Aching

Outside and Aching offers the viewer a voyeuristic experience of the city and the pleasures New Yorkers indulge in. Influenced by his background in architecture, Villafañe presents private spaces rendered in section-cut type depictions of interiors, allowing the viewer to pry in on unfolding scenes of fantasy and deviance, themes the artist devotes much of his imagery to. While one may habitually walk the streets of New York unphased by its daily eccentricities, here, the artist forces us to engage and further yet, trespass.

Brief Histories

115 Bowery St. #201, New York, NY, 10002

September 15 - November 12, 2022

Late Night Strollers

Brief Histories presents "Late Night Strollers," a solo exhibition by Jumana Manna that brings together recent ceramic sculptures, a scaffolding gauze collage, and video installation. Whether filmic or sculptural, Manna’s work reveals an interest in the ways that bodies, landscapes, and objects mutate under duress, taking on unexpected forms and performances as an assertion of life and continuity. This new body of sculptures moves between the worlds of sewage, digestion, and building sites. Interested in contradiction and improvisation in places where, according to the artist, infrastructure is built to fail, Manna puts these inquiries in relation to the sensorial, constantly examining how material ruination and psychological weight become embodied and felt.

Jorge Tacla: Stagings/Escenarios 

curated by Christian Viveros-Fauné

Jorge Tacla’s new and recent paintings are devoted to the themes of revolution and evolution. Some of the subjects explored in the exhibition will reflect Tacla’s celebrated work involving buildings, including the U.S. Capitol, which Tacla has painted several times since the insurrection on January 6th, and various buildings and monuments that embody the history and aspirations of humanity. They are joined by works representing an uncommon turn for the artist: abstract depictions of human figures in protest groups including Black Lives Matter in the United States and the Estallido Social in Chile.

Shifting Balance

The New York Artist Equity Association’s exhibition, Shifting Balance speaks to the isolation and anxiety of the current atmosphere, and a search for equilibrium. Between loss and discovery, chaos and construction, growth and decay, the known and the unfathomable, these artists have put their finger on a flickering pulse, cultivating myriad possibilities that struggle and flourish.


127 Henry St, NY, NY 10002

September 7 - October 23, 2022

Jimmy Wright:  Flowers For Ken

Jimmy Wright's "Flowers For Ken" includes work made in the late 80's/early 90's in tribute to his late husband Ken. The first of these, Flowers for Ken, Sunflower Stem, was dated 1988-1991 to reflect those “three years of horror,” as Wright described them, and the painting’s date of completion was mirrored by Ken’s death in 1991 at the age of 41.

Fridman Gallery

169 Bowery, New York, NY 10002

September 7 - October 22, 2022


Nate Lewis: Turning the Current

The second solo exhibition with the gallery by mixed-media artist Nate Lewis. Following the critically and widely acclaimed 2020 exhibition Latent Tapestries, Lewis has extended his signature paper-carving techniques to explore connections among the visual languages of dance movement, anatomy, medical diagnostics and weather-pattern data. In the process he raises questions about the interrelatedness of physical movement, history and healing, particularly (but not only) in the context of African diasporic art and culture. Tuning the Current includes several new bodies of work: a series of life-size sculpted prints of figures in motion; abstract handmade paper “quilts” related in texture and patterns to the figurative works; and a multi-channel audio-visual installation representing a significant new step in Lewis’s ongoing relationship with mixed media.


34 East Broadway

September 7 - October 16, 2022

Julia Kuhl:  unfold

Julia Kuhl continues to investigate the relationship between line, color, texture, and text. In the new series of drawings, ‘unfold’, she has added collage segments, which disrupt the line patterns creating another element of tension.

30 Orchard St, New York, NY, 10002

September 10 - October 12, 2022

"Blue Elevator Pitch" and "God strike me down or at least pay attention"

Harkawik presents two shows of new work representing stylistically and conceptually opposed challenges to the echo chamber of contemporary figurative painting. In Blue Elevator Pitch Max Brand's frenetic maximalism is at once an evocation of the past and a glimpse of where the convergence of abstraction and representationalism may lead. In God strike me down or at least pay attention Exene Karros eschews today's widely championed, often obfuscating painterly hand for diagrammatic certainty. Contrasting in style, scale, and subject matter, these artists are linked by a shared position in critical dialogue, offering an unexpectedly complementary pairing for shows of such diverse work.

Hashimoto Contemporary

54 Ludlow Street

September 3 -24, 2022

Erik Jones: Abiogenesis

September 10 - October 1, 2022

September 15 - November 5, 2022

Al Diaz aka SAMO©, Brian Leo, Christina Nicola, Doug Groupp, Marc Andre, Pia Chavarria

IFAC Arts presents Seminal / Sentience ‘all form is a face looking at us’, an exhibition of painting, print, and collage which resonate with elements of Neo-Expressionism, Surrealism and Pop. Using Serge Daney’s axiom ‘all “form” is a face looking at us’ as a vehicle for discussion, the viewers become part of the cinematic mise-en-scène in relation to the artworks and the exhibition spaces at The Yard. The six artists display a distinctive and powerful visual language through intensely expressive gesture, color, and use of pictorial space challenging the viewer to reflect on their own self awareness and subjectivity.


149 Orchard Street, NY NY 10002

September 15  - October 1st 2022

Matt Belval and Peppy Colours: “O Canada”

Brianna Bass & Ivelisse JImenez:  Image Schema

LatchKey Gallery is proud to present, Image Schema a sensory experience of abstract works by Brianna Bass and Ivelisse Jimenez. Through color, texture and pattern, Image Schema investigates abstraction beyond the boundaries of the canvas creating a phenomenological experience of color and space. Each of the artists directly engage viewers through their distinctive visual language resulting in a sensory experience between the observer and the work of art.

LATITUDE Gallery New York

64A Bayard Street, New York NY 10013

Yanyan Huang: Time Feast


465 Grand St, Suite 4C, New York, NY 10002

September 7 - October 15, 2022

Kate Newby:  We are such stuff

Kate Newby has a singular voice that puts pressure on the limits and nature of sculpture, exploring not only formal concerns like space, volume, texture and materials, but also where and how sculpture happens. Some works are ephemeral, others are tiny and live in pockets, and others are interventions in a landscape or architecture. Above all the work foregrounds direct experience, and in this way relates to things like the weather, bodies, and time.


175 Rivington Street, NY, NY 10002

September 7 - October 1, 2022


Kinetic Abstract Interconnectivity

This exhibition in various media, painting, sculpture and works on paper, addresses the concept of kinetic interconnectivity while focussing on abstraction from minimalism to abstract expressionism, and other. The work, though distinctly different in execution, exemplifies the wide ranging possibilities of visual communication bound by 'long distance' interconnections; or in other words — here, the artists connect, in lieu of 'flat out' directly, via the various works in the exhibition and via its provided conceptual platform of a further reaching, greater abstract interconnectivity.


Curated by Priska Juschka.

With Henry Biber, Carol Boram-Hays, Leslie Ford, Edward Jackson, Eveline Luppi, Francie Lyshak, Arlene Santana Thornton and Gerald Wolfe.

McKenzie Fine Art

55 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002

September 9 - October 23, 2022.


Paul Corio: These Foolish Things

Paul Corio’s abstract paintings have long used highly disciplined sequences of carefully mixed colors within a varied framework of geometric motifs and patterns. In Corio’s work, color is paramount, whether ordered systematically in terms of value, hue, and saturation, or applied randomly and intuitively. As he notes, “I freely mix these two approaches – systems are only interesting to me to the extent that they create a compelling image. If they don’t I discard or amend them to that end.”

Morgan Presents

155 Suffolk St, New York, NY, 10002

September 15th—October 18th 2022

Cora Cohen: Works from the 1980's

While Cora Cohen’s works are supremely concerned with the maintenance and integrity of the internal logic of each painting, they care little for larger conceptual systems or groupings. In this body of work from the 1980’s, Cohen calibrates compositional structure, form and color, all in the service of a larger investigation of weight and weightlessness in painting.



My Pet Ram

48 Hester St, New York, NY 10002

September 9 - October 2, 2022

Alexandra Eastburn, Casey Jex Smith, Joey Parlett


Alexandra Eastburn, who also works as a gardener, uses automatic drawing to create surreal botanical compositions that are mysteriously odd and alluring. In Casey Jex Smith’s finely crafted monochromatic drawings, fantastical landscapes, mythical beasts, role-play gaming, and battles are used to mirror real-life scenarios where the individual looking for meaning is controlled or squashed by superior forces. Joey Parlett carefully builds up thousands of tiny marks to create densely textured allegorical landscapes that float between fiction and photorealism. In Furrow, paper is the common ground for these artists to record what is seen and what is below the surface.


24 Henry Street, New York NY, 10002

September 7 - October 16, 2022

Anywhere or Not At All

Anne Wu, Elizabeth Orr, Martine Flor

In its most basic form, the concept of the contemporary is simply that of the coming together – hence the unity in disjunction, or better, the living disjunctive unity – of multiple times. More specifically, it refers to the coming together of the times of human lives within the time of the living.


299 Grand Street, New York, NY, 10002

September 7 - October 16, 2022

Abdulnasser Gharem:  Hospitable Thoughts

September 15 - October 22, 2022

Kathleen Goncharov: Above and Below

Olympia is pleased to present Above and Below, a first-time exhibition of works on panel by Kathleen Goncharov. For decades, Goncharov alternated between putting on major institutional exhibitions and working in relative solitude in her studio. Currently serving as senior curator at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Goncharov has practiced as a curator for forty years. Yet through that time, she introspectively cultivated her own visual language.

Peninsula Art Space

13 Monroe St, New York, NY, 10002

September 10- October 14 ,2022

Graham Durward: Shadows Luster

Graham Durward is fascinated by the way paint can materialize presence in its physical and psychological realms. How its qualities can engage us with the world as we see it. His artistic heritage is one of modernist painting filtered through a traditional art school training and in post conceptualism. This often involves a love hate relationship with creativity bordering on melancholia as befits a northern European sensibility. More recently fixating on the natural world he feels free of the necessity of ideas in painting. Nevertheless he is always questioning how wide the quotation marks are.

Signs and Symbols

249 East Houston St, New York, NY, 10002

September 7 - October 29, 2022

Rachel Libeskind: Transparent Things

Signs and Symbols is pleased to present Transparent Things, Rachel Libeskind’s second solo exhibition with the gallery featuring a series of photo-assemblages from the artist’s most recent body of work: Windows. Each painting begins with a collage, assembled on the scanner bed, enlarged, inverted, entire fields of color and information expunged. Excerpts are printed on a selection of materials: latex, silicone, fiberglass netting, different type of PVC and ripstock — and then cut up, painted over, pasted, enlightened, liberated, destroyed and reborn as finished works stretched over “traditional” painting stretcher bars.

Simone Subal

131 Bowery, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10002

Field Kallop: Circles

In her new paintings, Kallop, whose practice explores universal and fundamental forms and patterns, trains her focus on circles. Discs and spheres are omnipresent in the natural world and we have focused our attention on them since the beginning of recorded history. We have an innate predilection for circular forms and we have always imbued them with meaning.
