Each of Dustin Yellin’s 3000-pound blocks of sandwiched glass contains the suspended form of a human body that is composed of thousands found images and paint. These fragments dance like the atoms that compose the body and mimic the energy and endurance used by the New York City Ballet dancers during their performances.

Skarstedt Gallery presents a series of large-scale monumental works by Keith Haring dating between the years 1984-85. In his signature bright color palette, Haring explores the duality of good and evil; life and death; religion and sexuality; innocence and experience; and heaven and hell; that he saw as a reflection of the world, in general, but most specifically during this period of the 1980s. What is apparent from viewing these works, is the foresight with which Haring saw some of these political issues and how they resonate even more strongly today. 

Exhibition, Keith Haring: Heaven & Hell, March 5 - April 18, 2015 at the Skarstedt Gallery - Chelsea, New York

Part 1 of 2 of installation photographs from the Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. Photographs by Blair Prentice (iheartmyart)

Exhibition, Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic at the Brooklyn Museum, February 20–May 24, 2015

See Part 2 of the photographs from the exhibition here.

_____

The exhibition, Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic at the Brooklyn Museum, collects over sixty paintings and sculptures by the artist, Kehinde Wiley, portraying African American men and women using some of the stylistic conventions of traditional European portraiture. Wiley endeavors to create a new perspective for the history of art by coopting this traditional style of painting and replacing the dominant white subjects with black male and female figures.

His work is an expression of an age where black urban culture has been looked to, in art and music, as the source for inspiration. Wiley interestingly turns that process on a head by reversing this process and instead coopts their style of the elite to reframe our perception of black male and female figures and the role they play in our history.

Yoko Ono, The Riverbed exhibition at Galerie Lelong, New York, December 11, 2015 – January 30, 2016; Photography by Blair Prentice

In December and January, Yoko Ono presented a two-part participatory exhibition titled, The Riverbed at Galerie Lelong and Andrea Rosen Gallery in New York City. Stones, string, glue and shattered ceramic pieces were strew around the space for visitors to use to as they pleased. On the last day of the exhibition at Galerie Lelong, the typically pristine white gallery walls were filled with images, notes and holes; and visitors were forced to crouch below an extensive web of string that supported various creations that dangled from its strings. On a series of white shelves, sat countless numbers of unique sculptures that visitors to the gallery had pieced together from the fragments of broken tea cups. 

Bonded by the communal experience of the exhibition, visitors warmly conversed amongst each other and lingered at the gallery for extended periods of time. Given the disparate backgrounds and experiences of the New Yorkers’ and tourists that visited the gallery, it was refreshing to see that with the right tools and opportunity, they would willingly participate in creative communal work to forge a single voice, which was the exhibition itself. 

THE RIVERBED is over the river in-between life and death.

  • Stone Piece: Choose a Stone and hold it until all your anger and sadness have been let go.
  • Line Piece: Take me to the farthest place in our planet by extending the line.
  • Mend Piece: Mend with wisdom mend with love. It will mend the earth at the same time.

- Yoko Ono

Samsung 837 (@837nyc) located in New York City’s Meatpacking district has now opened its doors to the public. The space is dedicated to showcasing to the public innovative new technology and immersive art experiences.

Experiential design firm Kenzo Digital/Black Egg were commissioned to create the inaugural installation, Social Galaxy, that surrounds the visitor in a infinity room with 300 screens that project the images and sounds of their Instagram feed. At the pinnacle of the experience, the symphony of the images and sound seems like a fairly good estimation of what it might feel like to upload ones brain to the Matrix. 

Visitors can also escape into the new worlds of virtual reality with the Samsung VR headsets or create a social media portrait of themselves that will be projected on a massive screen in the center of the 837nyc space. 

Social Galaxy runs for the next two months at 837 Washington Street in New York City.

Mark Manders exhibition at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York, October 29 - December 19, 2015

Photography by Blair Prentice of iheartmyart.com

Vises, plinths and other construction materials frequently used in the process of creating sculpture feature heavily in the work of artist Mark Manders. Currently on display at the Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, his new works strive to recalibrate our understanding and expectation the pristine condition of sculptures, as they are typically displayed in galleries and museums. As though still works in progress, his figurines remain suspended in a creative limbo. Their perfect surfaces are torn, divided and crushed in various states of disrepair. Pointedly, the works seems more complete in this form, as we frequently view classical sculpted works in similar broken state.

Isamu Noguchi
(Set 1 of 2 of photographs by Blair Prentice)

Widely celebrated Japanese American artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) spent his life creating an impressive variety of sculptures, public installations, gardens, furniture and lighting designs, ceramics, architecture, and set designs. Effortlessly traversing between mediums of expression, Noguchi redefined the role of the artist. 

In 1985, the The Noguchi Museum was opened in an industrial building across from his studio in Long Island City, New York. The complex, designed by Noguchi, includes a garden for peaceful contemplation and galleries dedicated to displaying some of Noguchi’s best work.
