Navot Miller: Coming Back Homo, curated by Russell Tovey
Navot Miller (b. 1991, Israel) Miller’s work focuses on intimate interactions and on the queer aspects of banal, uneventful encounters. Throughout his life, Miller has been fascinated by visuals and sound as a way of expressing ideas and exploring topics such as sexuality, religion and desire. Using the practice of opposite and contrasting colors as a form of painting and the aesthetic of collaging short videos, Miller creates montages of scenes into paper, canvas and videos while juxtaposing tragedy and positivity. Primarily working with oil and water based paint, he engages with flatness as a way to create senses of still drama and voyeurism in his works. He pays close attention to the figurative form of objects he considers as a muse and to the sense of space curated by multiple layers collaged together.

June 23 – July 31
Visions of the City
For Stipan Tadić there is always romance. In Visions of the City a series of paintings come tantalizingly close to forming a complete story arc. Dense with imagery, Tadic articulates in a style that negotiates the art historical into the proletarian grammar of comic books, arriving at a core which defies boundaries, in which Medieval illuminated manuscripts mingle with video game aesthetics and 1980’s neon. Here, vignettes surface, of people haunted and depressed, of Tadić himself, and most of all, of life in New York City.

Ecologies of Care; Ani Liu
Ecologies of Care showcases a series of new works created during the artist’s postpartum period, in contemplation of the labor of mothering.

The Capital of Fine is OK

In A Line in the Sand, Robert Yoder constructs an alphabet of isolation out of redacted text and found materials. Informed by his time spent working alone in recent years, he contemplates errors and emendations as building blocks for new works. Removing original context from symbols and media—whether by disjunction or erasure—the artist explores how the ways we record or censor our thoughts affect the nature of knowledge.

175 Rivington Street, New York, NY
June 29 - July 23
Exhibition of work in various media, ranging from abstraction to abstracted representation, and conceptualizing as much the color and the tonality of 'SUMMER BLUE’ as the musicality and sentiment of the height of the summer.

BLUE, defined by the Oxford dictionary as "of a color intermediate between green and violet, as of the sky or sea on a sunny day”, is the element that unites them. Exhibition Walk Thru and Reception, THURSDAY, JULY 21, 6 - 8 pm.

GARDEN PARTY; KEISHA PRIOLEAU-MARTIN
Olympia is delighted to present Garden Party, Keisha Prioleau-Martin’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Named for dreamy lands of soil overgrown with leaves and twigs, garden parties are pillowy sites for conversation, indulgences, and communal growth. In these works, fantastical narratives of everyday interactions press against urban life, full of light, color and pattern. These are calm and searching scenes, that bask in queerness and joyful unity.

Peter Freeman, Inc. is pleased to announce David Adamo’s fifth exhibition with the gallery. Adamo (born 1979, Rochester, New York, lives in Berlin, Germany) works with sculpture, drawing, and performance. Describing his early and current influences, and some of the individual works in the show, he writes: "One of my formative childhood memories is picking up a twig in the forest and gently peeling away the layer of bark with the blade of my pocket knife, revealing an entirely new form underneath and fundamentally transforming the twig through this simple act of removing material."

July 7 - August 13
No Pain No Gain
Rachel Youn (b. 1994, Abington, PA) is an artist living and working in St. Louis, MO. Working across sculpture and installation, Youn sources materials with a history of aspiration and failure through online secondhand shopping. Venturing into the suburbs, Youn rescues electric massagers from suburban limbo, fastening artificial plants to the machines to create kinetic sculptures that are clumsy, erotic, and absurd. Haunted by their immigrant father’s pursuit of the American Dream, their work identifies with the replica that earnestly desires to be real, and the failed object that simulates care and intimacy.
249 East Houston Street, New York, New York
June 18 - July 30
signs and symbols is pleased to present Monochrome Paintings, South African artist Zander Blom’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. This latest body of work considers the possibilities of abstraction, focusing on subtle variations in tone as well as using new tools in silicone and rubber. At first glance, the Monochrome paintings may appear to be purely black and white, but the black paint is actually mixed with different colors on each canvas, alternately lending warmth or coolness. Because of the heavy use of linseed oil, halos of blue or yellow will often bleed around the edges of the black shapes, indicating the dominant color added to the black.

Maru Quioñero’s passion for volume, shape, texture, color and material has driven her to define compositions that visualize her own creative universe. Her Color and Vacuum series has been in development since 2017, serving to facilitate a conversation between color and emptiness. Through these extensive monochromatic studies, Quiñonero explores form beyond plastic expression, tapping into a process of possibility that continually draws from her lived experiences. The Need is the latest iteration of this venture, consisting of a capsule collection of works revolving around red and pink hues.
