Weekend Art Picks, New York

Atmosphere at the Tenri Cultural Institute of New York
Hiro Yamgata exhibits a series of paintings reflecting his emotions while traveling in Afghanistan. The stark landscape of the country is reflected in these eerie brushstrokes of black and white ink and rice paper on canvas. While working on these paintings, Yamagata thought of the Milky Way, snow-capped mountains, barren fields and overflowing rivers. These natural elements and the lonely whisper of wind blowing through his memories of Afghanistan serve as the inspiration for this exhibition.

Atmosphere runs through November 30th, 2010 at the Tenri Cultural Institute located at 43A West 13th Street, New York

Weekend Art Picks, New York

RED: The LEGO Brick Sculpture of Nathan Sawaya at The Agora Gallery
In RED, Nathan Sawaya adds to his repertoire of LEGO sculptures. In his exhibit at The Agora Gallery, the artists use the popular toys to create works that explore the nature of the human spirit. His work contrasts the child-like simplicity evoked by LEGOs with images of figures breaking and dissolving into space. This juxtaposition of the fantastical and the sometimes frightening  seeks to make audiences think about being "trapped and haunted by the human spirit" in his art.

RED runs through December 14th, 2010 at The Agora Gallery located at 530 West 25th Street, New York. A reception for the exhibition will be held on Thursday, December 2nd, 2010.

Shadow Fux at The Swiss Institute
New York Artist Rita Ackermann and Nashville director Harmony Korine collaborate in this exhibition of paintings, drawings, and two films. The process of putting together the pieces was a series of editing and spicing from Ackermann and Korine's respective mediums. Using stills from film, the artists drew, painted and created collages over the faces in the photographs. The results are works that highlight an "unorthodox mischievous beauty." These images celebrate the eccentric, panicked and hedonistic characters that are subjects of their artwork.

Shadow Fux runs through January 23rd, 2011. The Swiss Institute is located at 495 Broadway, 3rd Floor (between Spring and Broome), New York.

Last Chance: Tony Oursler's "Peak" at Lehmann Maupin Gallery through December 4th

For die hard Oursler fans, this show provides an interesting departure from much of the artist's previous work. For viewers unfamiliar with Oursler, the show may not be the best introduction, as it has less of the technological acrobatics than his signature video work. Read Shannon Gulliver's review in KiptonART Magazine.

Damien Hirst: Medicine Cabinets at L&M Gallery, New York

Damien Hirst: Medicine Cabinets. New Review by KiptonART Contributor, Shannon Gulliver 

His sculptures and paintings are always lurking around a corner here in New York, either guarding the courtyard of a corporate headquarters like Lever House on Park Avenue, or gracing the walls of the permanent display at The Met, MoMA, or his mercantile home, Gagosian Gallery. It is as though he is lying in a wait to gross us out with his dead butterflies, piss us off with his self-auctioned and exorbitant prices, and subject us to that withering question from our elders: "How is that art?"

Weekend Art Picks, Identity Crisis

 Vogue'ology at Parsons The New School For Design
Before Madonna sang about it, voguing was a vital part of the 1960s Harlem ballroom scene. In this joint project between Parsons, the Ballroom Archive and Oral History Project and the sound art collective Ultra-red, the vogue community is explored in its role as a tool in combating normative gender, class, and racial identities.

Weekend Art Picks, Identity Crisis

Death of A King at Praxis International Art
In his first solo exhibit at Praxis, Shaun El C. Leonardo presents a series of self-portraits, paintings and drawings, exploring his masculinity. He installs hulking plywood figures against ominous murals on the gallery's walls. Every flexed muscle is vividly depicted in a comic-book superhero style painted with a camouflage motif. Although the bodies appear virile, the face tell another story. The figures' painted expressions indicate frailty and defeat. Have these men been conquered despite their seeming strength? Or can they still be the conqueror?

Artist Interview with Fernando Ferreira de araujo

Who or what is your biggest inspiration right now?
I've always enjoyed portraying the abstract side of the Human Figure. But, lately I've been a bit compulsive about it. I feel it will last for a while and perhaps only then I'll realize the reason of all that. Normally I am only able to realize my creative process after I part from one series to another. I would say that my work is rarely inspired by a preconceived theme.

Weekend Art Picks, New York

Reflections at Barry Friedman Ltd.

In this exhibition, the Japanese artist Takahiro Kondo displays 25 casts of his face and head. Kondo's gintekisai glaze technique may share roots with the traditional Kyoto blue-and-white porcelain of his grandfather, but this is a modern interpretation. The combination of his classic background and experimentation with new media influences this new series of work. Each cast's unique decorations reference themes from his past work while the technique used explore the ideas of man's relationship with his ecosystem. Although the water-like finish of Kondo's ginteksai  glaze explores humanity's relationship with nature and the tranquility of the elements other casts glazed with gold and precious metals draw attention to our more materialistic inclinations. Reflections is on view from November 12, 2010 through January 22, 2011. Barry Friedman Ltd. is located at 515 West 26th Street. Read this Weekend's Art Picks

Robert Irwin: Way Out West at the Pace Gallery
Robert Irwin displays an installation of new fluorescent light tube sculptures from 2010. These structures, wrapped  in as many as 10 color gels play on light, texture, and color to effect the mood of their surrounding rooms. By altering the state of these tubes, Irwin can dramatically change the atmosphere and compositions of their environments. These large (some as big as six-feet tall and twenty-seven light fixtures wide) sculptures explore the perceptual qualities of light. This exhibition will be on view in the gallery at 32 East 57th Street from November 12, 2010 through January 29, 2011. For more Weekend Art Picks, visit the KiptonART Magazine.
