Carlos Reyes is interested in expanding artistic practice beyond the formulaic and rejecting notions of complete access and knowledge. Manifesting in works and exhibitions that move towards fluidity and transparency, Reyes’ sculptures are forms that point away in order to reveal. A recent work, Inside Lovesongs (TBD), can be seen in Deep Space (Insides) at Joe Sheftel Gallery (24A Orchard Street) through December 16. Reyes is based in Paris and New York.

Sunday join our friends Other Means at Joe Sheftel gallery (24A Orchard Street) on Sunday to celebrate the release of two books they recently designed.

First: First Among Equals, the catalogue to the exhibition at Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, which we designed with Mark Owens.

Second: Fun Sponge by Alex Da Corte, the catalogue to his show at the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art in Portland, ME.

We love Other Means, we really loved Alex’s show at Joe Sheftel, and we love artist books! Sunday is looking like a lot of fun!

RECOMMENDED: Deep Space (Insides), a group exhibition curated by Karen Archey, is currently on view at Joe Sheftel Gallery (24A Orchard Street) through December 16. Bringing together a group of works that consider the psy­cho­log­i­cal effects of built space, this exhibition uses the metaphor of phys­i­cal and vir­tual archi­tec­ture to con­tem­plate how such struc­tures affect our quotidian lives and emo­tional states. Par­tic­i­pat­ing artists include Harm van den Dor­pel, VALIE EXPORT, Rochelle Gold­berg, Dan Gra­ham, Calla Henkel and Max Pite­goff, Josh Kline and Car­los Reyes.
