Kenzan Tsutakawa-Chinn is the founder of Studio 1 Thousand, a Brooklyn-based lighting design studio that specializes in complex LED installations. These are often placed in large architectural settings, such as building lobbies or concert halls. For his exhibition Illuminant Surfaces, Tsutakawa-Chinn has created a number of smaller-scale wall works that respond to and engage the more intimate nature of a contemporary art gallery setting.
Greenpoint Hill is pleased to present a two-person show featuring collaborative and solo work by Mikel Durlam and Monty J.
Both artists create dreamlike sculptural interpretations of the natural world. Their work defies categorization, synthesizing elements of design, visual poetry and surrealism. Durlam’s work presents a modern approach to representational sculpture. Monty J’s otherworldly living sculptures offer a more abstract take. Working together in a communal studio space in Brooklyn, Durlam and Monty J have created an ethereal collection of objects that connect the viewer to the terrestrial world while also fostering dreams of another one, far from home.
Sideshow Gallery was founded by Richard Timperio in 1999 to create a space that would foster young Williamsburg artists, giving them exposure and a means to create a dialogue with the larger artists community. Timperio was an urban pioneer, who moved to Williamsburg 1979 when the neighborhood was dangerous and desolate. “Williamsburg was a place for cheap rent and space and was removed from everything else,” Timperio said. “It was a place for working artists, but it had no outlets.”
Small Editions is pleased to present (wordless), a group exhibition featuring the works of Rosaire Appel Zipora Fried, and Renee Gladman. In conjunction with the exhibition, Conch Shell’s Katie Giritlian will lead a workshop on the evening of December 2nd at 7PM.
See ya in the streets!
