free exhibition openings in New York City (NYC)

Gallery Openings in New York City (NYC, NY, Manhattan)

It is almost impossible to list all the exhibition openings that take place in New York City art galleries. There are so many galleries, and so little time! Here is a good sampling to start with.

Opening Reception |
This is the first solo exhibition in the United States by the Brazilian artist Nino Cais. Cais’ work, included in the 2012 São Paulo Biennial, deals with the tension between civilization and nature, the tortured relationship between the appearances we present to the outside world and the intimate narratives that break through the surface.

Dash has always made automatic sculptures out of small pieces of cloth. They are handled until the fibers fray, stain and degrade. What’s left are dirty wads of hugging threads that indirectly document the artist’s everyday, lived experience. Through constant touch and exchange between fingers and fabric, a certain bodily intelligence is indexed, a range of imprinted thought and feeling encrypted. The degraded vestiges are then further translated into an image, arranged in quick succession and photographed. Despite the sculpture’s physical absence, it is precisely only through the image that it reaches its perceptible sculptural form, albeit, only by captured emulsions. These images have been included in a number of Dash’s previous exhibitions.

Opening Reception |
Zachary Armstrong's newest body of work consists of bold, energetic paintings that are perceived primarily as abstractions. However these paintings are in fact Armstrong's latest exploration of a figurative image that he has been working with for some time. The use of existing images is key to his art and it is important that the image depicted, whether drawn or lettered, is recognizable and meaningful, at least to him. For Armstrong, his whole art is about using things that already exist to try to create his own vision and to paint a very personal portrait of his world.
