Our preview of must-see exhibitions continues with a roundup of exciting shows in New York City!
New York painter Louise Fishman will be presenting her new work in this exhibition. Fishman is known for gestural abstractions characterized by unique intersections of color and space. Many paintings in this exhibition were inspired by her recent stay at the Emily Harvey Foundation artist’s residency in Venice, Italy, where she experimented with different techniques such as painting with her fingers and paintings three or four canvases at a time.
Daphne Fitzpatrick’s work encompasses a variety of mediums such as sculpture, video, photography, and found objects. Her work is known for incorporating visual puns on sexuality.
Reza Derakshani is a painter, musician and performance artist. Derakshani’s work encompasses challenging techniques, diversity, originality and has gained recognition for its exploration of form and style. Derakshani also incorporates music into his visual art.
Renaud Regnery’s debut American exhibition includes paintings on canvas-mounted, mass-produced wallpaper and silkscreens. These decorative papers and prints are meant to blur the aesthetic and psychological aspects of social conventions, while also embracing the idea of ornamentation.
Michael Bell-Smith’s third solo exhibition at the gallery presents four new single-channel videos using digital tools and the language of commercial design to engage with the histories of experimental film, video art and painting. Bell-Smith mixes stock footage, sound effects, software templates and digital drawing.
Michael Rakowitz’s exhibition is a ten-part radio series originally commissioned by Al Ma-mal Foundation for Contemporary Art, Jerusalem, in 2010 for a Palestinian station in Ramallah. The series considers the intricacies of the Beatles’ 1969 disbanding as an example of a collaboration that grinds to a halt amid unraveling negotiations and failed communication. This has been developed by the artist as a multi-media event featuring video, drawings, memorabilia and vinyl LLP.
The artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery presents sprawling sculptures of seemingly impossible architecture. Al-Hadid’s work crosses cultures and disciplines drawing inspiration from a myriad of sources including art history, ancient invention, science, science fiction and myth.
