Ok, y’all… how we doing with those New Year’s resolutions? It’s been about three weeks, you still with me? Because I know one of those resolutions was to “see more art” or “soak up the culture” or “take full advantage of this great city,” something like that?
“Don’t be silly, Andy,” you say. “I love art, I see art all the time!”
I double-dog dare you to hit two of these six galleries this weekend.
Microscope is very pleased to present Break The Sky, the first solo exhibition at the gallery by Jeanne Liotta, whose works we have previously shown in “Triple Blind” (2013), “Slide Slide Slide” (2014), and “Dreamlands: Expanded” (2016-17), a series of expanded cinema events presented in collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art as part of the exhibition “Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema & Art 1905-2016”.
A recurring theme of Liotta’s practice – which spans the mediums of moving image, photography, collage, installation, painting, drawing and performance – is a personal and poetic interest in the intersection of art and science and the tools and technology thereof.
Some of you have already resolved to spend the weekend by the barbeque. But for those of you commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in an art gallery, we have your weekend exhibitions right here. This Friday, July 4, the Brooklyn Night Bazaar is showcasing art from multiple north Brooklyn artists (8pm-1am). This Saturday, July 5, Odetta Gallery has an opening called “Eden,” featuring five NY/Hudson Valley artists (6pm). Also, this Saturday, July 5, the Bishop Gallery is having a closing reception for “Girl on Fire” (6pm). And then, of course, this is the last weekend to see Kara Walker’s work at the Domino Sugar Refinery (Sat & Sun 11-7pm). Go! Go! Go!
