Laurie Simmons: Color Pictures/Deep Photos 2007–2022


In “Color Pictures / Deep Photos 2007-2009,” Simmons reconfigures a photographic series she made a decade and a half ago. At the time, she downloaded and cut out images of women from amateur-porn websites, posed them in eerily lit sets alongside dollhouse furniture—tiny sinks, a toy lamp, a miniature piano—occasionally doodled or built-out decorations on their naked forms (painted polka-dot underwear, clay bras), and photographed the resulting tableaus. Meant to be printed out in a large-scale format, the series was, in the end, never officially shown, its source material perhaps considered out of step with Simmons’s more familiar midcentury imagery. Fifteen years later, the artist has returned to reconsider and play with these images once again, and we are now more than ready.

Ali Eyal: In the head's sunrise

Ali Eyal’s paintings are characterized by their intense subjectivity that bring forth fragmented narratives and surreal visual scenes and compositions. Eyal’s works piece together memories, dreams, and stories that reach into one another and across media, rendering incomprehensible violences and unfathomable events witnessed in the artist’s hometown, a place he calls small farm. Set against the impossible scale of calamity in war, Eyal gives curious attention to the intimate, and often absurd, accounts to be found in this concentrated space. An artist and poet, Eyal’s text is an extension of his drawings and a thread to his paintings that return as narrative links in his performances and videos.

The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center: LES & Abrazo Galleries

107 Suffolk St, New York, NY 10002

November 1st, 2022 - January 8th, 2023

Arturo Yepez-Pottier, Gary Javier, Jose L. Diaz de Villegas, Kike Estrada, Mrinali Alvarez, Juan Alvarez O’Neill, Rayma Suprani, Jorge Rafael Calderon, KEKAKO, Rene Juan de la Cruz, Jesus Ortiz Torres, Camdelafu (Camila de la Fuente), Eduardo Sanabria (EDO), JOTA LEAL, Hermann Mejia, Leonardo Rodriguez, Roberto Weil: See You in Florida: A Vene-Rican Odyssey

“See you in Florida, a Vene-Rican Odyssey” invites visual artists to explore, through caricature, illustration, drawing or painting, the causes, vicissitudes, challenges and triumphs of the Puerto Rican and Venezuelan diasporas. Puerto Rican and Venezuelan diasporas in terms of their exodus from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and New York to Florida. At a time when even North Americans themselves do not cease to succumb to the tropical charm of “Sagüesera Mayamera", the Borimix 2022 art show wants to highlight how Venezuelans and Boricans have visibly increased their presence in multiple cities throughout the state of Florida. While many come to Miami directly from the towns and cities of Puerto Rico and Venezuela, others who had already settled in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, are leaving in increasing numbers for Kissimmee Florida, Jacksonville and other cities. It is clear that the current circumstances of departure, while sharing a certain urgency to LEAVE, reflect different discontents.

Jerry Kearns: HEARSAY

In HEARSAY, Jerry Kearns navigates human connection in the hyperreal landscape of the present day. The ecstatic consumption of informational and sensorial stimuli sublimates our real desires. Time and space are compressed, everything is at our fingertips, so why do those close to us feel so distant?


Laurel Gitlan

465 Grand Street #4C, New York, NY 10002

November 5, 2022 - December 18, 2022

You Ni Chae: Fata Morgana

You Ni Chae makes intimately-scaled paintings where diffuse and layered pigment register subtle shapes and oscillating patches of light, suggesting the possibility of fuzzy forms emerging from rich ambient surfaces. Tawny reds, purple grays, and dusty blues glow next to luminous violet, electric turquoise and earthy green fields, with an unknown light source that pushes against the just-visible nub of the canvas. Her brushy, nearmonochrome paintings invite situations of undetermined, fluid and unutterable feeling. Despite this seemingly vague and doomed intention, Chae’s canvases are concise, cogent and present a convincing if indescribable visual narrative in color, scale and latent meaning.

December 15, 2022 - December 29, 2022


INTEGRAL–  Parts That Together Constitute A Whole.


This exhibition in various media, with painting, process art, sculpture and works on paper, brings together work that connects not only with each other but that sets the tone for the gallery’s program and defines, with the sum of its parts, the gallery’s direction that encompasses abstraction while also including abstracted representation. Here, the work reflects conceptually and visually upon one another — thereby creating non-arbitrary, distinct relationships that directly link to the concept and aesthetic of the exhibition. INTEGRAL, with its concept by gallery director Priska Juschka, marks the end of the year 2022 and the beginning of the gallery's 8th year on 175 Rivington Street. EXHIBITION WALK THRU and RECEPTION: Thursday, December 15 | 6-8 PM.

November 4, 2022 - December 18, 2022

Laura Sharp Wilson: From the Dining Room Table

Laura Sharp Wilson paints with acrylic on mulberry paper mounted on wood panels, creating vividly colored, precisely rendered works that draw on a visual language derived from the world of decorative arts. In this exhibition, botanical imagery predominates in compositions that are more ordered and simplified than in previous paintings. Patterns and motifs found in textiles, porcelain, and jewelry have long been a constant in Wilson’s surreal environments; forms are encircled, tethered, bound, or draped by cords, ribbons, ornamental beads, and thorny flowering vines.

Annabel Daou: Only If

Annabel Daou's second solo exhibition at the gallery, Only If, explores themes relating to nature, history, personal experience and collective belonging. Daou’s language-oriented work draws from the words that saturate ordinary life. The word “only,” here, registers the intractable desire to claim individual experience and to hold steadfast in the moment to one or another oscillating position taken in relation to others or to ourselves.

Herald Nix & Roger Brouard: Gilded Splinters


Nix’s paintings and Brouard’s sculpture embrace the process—the journey as much as the destination. Finding and creating routes, acknowledging missteps along the way, and evidencing them as part of the finished work. They are interested in finding something new within something familiar, as we can often find more within boundaries than without.
