Weekend Art Roundup: July 1

Bushwick in the Summer
Bushwick in the Summer

With July 4th on the horizon, it feels like most of North Brooklyn is at the beach (or heading to Saratoga to see a band play) but there are a couple of receptions this evening, Friday, July 1st, in Bushwick, just a few blocks away from each other. Kick off your weekend with some visual art!

Friday, July 1, 6-9pm
at Brilliant Champions Gallery
5 Central Ave

This collection of new tapestries, being the largest to date (some as large as 8 x 8 feet), captures traumatic moments of turmoil in the artists personal narrative, moments of her youth pre-smart phones, and images referencing a battle with Trichotillomania. A formidable depiction of self portraits and the obsessive documentation of an image saturated life.

Friday, July 1, 7-9pm
NURTUREArt
56 Bogart St.

“In more than a way, Summer Anagram is a summer show like every other summer show. It embraces its format and its season. It claims no conceptual crutch. The exhibition’s title is also there to confuse so, please, do not think too hard about it. It happens that it is summer here, as I write this.

Artworks are as strong and relevant as the more or less transparently structured algebra backing their visual, conceptual, technical and material components. The ones selected for this exhibition make no exception. Their units can be taken apart and recombined around new formulas, overlap and complement each other like the abstract-sounding, recurring letter clusters of an anagrammatic poem.”

Featuring: Cortney Andrews, Courtney Childress, Theresa Daddezio, Amanda Friedman, Rachel Phillips, Cheon Pyo Lee. Curated by Marco Antonini.

Weekend Art Roundup: June 24-26

Secret Project Robot's final summer at Melrose.
Secret Project Robot’s final summer at Melrose.

Hey guys, welcome to Summer! If you’re anything like me you’re still vibing off this week’s cosmic combo of the full moon with the Summer Solstice. Ride that wave through Sunday if you can, with a few suggestions here…

But firstly, we have to tip our hat to the good folks at Secret Project Robot who recently announced that they’ll be leaving their space at Melrose Street at the end of the summer. “We’ve moved before, from Monster Island in Williamsburg to Bushwick, and we shall persevere, and move again… In many ways, We are ourselves to blame, we’ve helped to create a hipper safer neighborhood and higher rents, as so often do, have followed… ” They’re hosting a ton of events in the coming weeks, including a series of dance parties this weekend.

But wait! There’s more!

The new show by Jake Dibeler featuring Ms. William
“Per­form­ance artist Jake Dibel­er […] uses his unique brand of dis­arm­ing, semi-tra­gic hu­mor to sweep us along for the ride. Like a full-throated rendi­tion of your fa­vor­ite pop song in a sleazy bar, Dibel­er’s per­form­ances may have the ven­eer of na­ive op­tim­ism but they twang with the dis­son­ance of an emo­tion­al break­down.” -Philadelphia Weekly

Weekend Art Roundup: June 10-12

balamajpu

Oh man, we’ve got a lot cooking this weekend… I’m not the one to usually say things like “art is all around us,” but this weekend art is all around us: in the streets, wristwatch showrooms, back room bar shows, record label stoop sales, and a Mayan hip hop show. Hell, if that’s not art I don’t know what is. Continue reading

Karen Marston – Demeter’s Wrath
at Owen James Gallery

Karen Marston is a painter focused on the fundamental contradiction of natural phenomena, the pairing of powerful terror with majestic beauty. Her large-scale oil paintings portray this strength at its extremes: tornadoes, forest fires, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions. While many of these events have occurred naturally throughout the history of the Earth, they have also been exacerbated by the influence humans have on the environment.

Opening Reception: Friday May 20th, 6-8 PM
at Owen James Gallery
