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.

Select photographs from the retrospective for the musician Björk at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY, March 8–June 7, 2015. Photographs by Blair Prentice (iheartmyart).

Divided into three experiences, the exhibition endeavors to give a glimpse into the immense audio and visual landscape created over the last 20 years by the ground breaking experimental musician Björk and her collaborators. 

As visitors enter the museum lobby, they encounter the otherworldly sounds of experimental instruments - a gameleste, pipe organ, gravity harp and Tesla coil - which were created specifically for Björk‘s Biophilia (2011) album. 

Perched above in a pavilion specifically created for the exhibition, the Songlines experience invites the viewer to take an audio-guided journey through Björk’s albums designed to complement the displays of her costumes worn on tour and in music videos. The most intriguing artifacts are Björk’s notebooks which contain the original notes for the lyrics she penned to some of her greatest hits.

The highlight of the exhibition lies in the MoMA commissioned sound and video installation for the song Black Lake from Björk’s new Vulnicura (2015) album. The video features a radiant Björk as she emerges from the depths of a deep cave as she overcomes the deep pain of her breakup with artist Matthew Barney.

Lisa Yuskavage

Part 2 of photographs from the opening reception of the exhibition, Lisa Yuskavage at the David Zwirner Gallery, April 23 - June 13, 2015, New York: 533 West 19th Street. Photographs by Blair Prentice.

David Zwirner Gallery is currently showing new paintings and pastels by artist, Lisa Yuskavage. While known for her sumptuous and provocative portraits of strong women, Yuskavage has most interestingly chosen to paint a series of men. These exceptional new works continue to push the boundaries of contemporary figurative painting with her masterful use of color and ability to create flesh and form that is altogether very satisfying for the eye to take in.

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.

Draped in robes decorated with a combination of motifs from ancient illuminated Arab manuscripts, Japanese calligraphy and Italian Renaissance painting, the women of Iraqi artist Hayv Kahramans work seem to emerge from the surface of the linen. It is through these women that Kahraman grapples with her identity as Iraqi, living in the west, having observed the upheaval of her home country from abroad. Having experienced the liberties afforded to women in western societies, Kahraman yearns optimistically with each of her brushstrokes, for the empowerment and liberation of the women of the Middle East.

Tony Oursler

Part 2 of photographs by Blair Prentice from the opening reception of the art exhibition, Tony Oursler at the Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York City. The exhibition is running from April 29 – June 14, 2015 at 201 Chrystie Street.

Photographs by Blair Prentice.

______

On view now at the Lehmann Maupin Gallery, are new works by the multimedia artist Tony Oursler. The exhibition is composed of a collection of large-scale sculptural works that depict human faces on aluminum panels. Their skin is marked by the recognizable indicators used in surveillance and facial recognition technology. Through holes in the surface, digital screens project looping images of eyes and mouths that continuously shift their expression.

Using all of the visual queues given by Oursler, the gallery visitor can piece together an idea of the who these characters might be. This raises questions about our loss of privacy in the face of new technology and the way that we formulate our identity when under such scrutiny.

The exhibition is running from April 29 – June 14, 2015 at 201 Chrystie Street.
