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.

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!

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.

What I Am Up To (Writing a review of Alex Da Corte @ Joe Sheftel Gallery on Searching For The Light

“It’s like Frank Stella designed a back room at Max’s Kansas City to sell coke out of. It’s a hell of an installation that completely transforms the gallery into a colorfully sleazy wonderland.”)

Stuff I Wrote (“Man, if the power shift away from Chelsea hasn’t been clear yet, Joe Sheftel’s summer group show has Lewis Baltz and Sherry Levine in it… I like Lewis Baltz, but who doesn’t see him as Robert Adams’s less interesting little brother? But still, some museum types appearing in a Lower East Side group show does seem to be part of a sea change.” on SearchingForTheLight.net)
