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 |
In this exhibition, Simone Leigh expands her exploration of ceramic-based and multimedia sculpture to fill the gallery with majestic installations that celebrate the woman's role in African and African American history. Long concerned with making manifest the role of women's work in object-making as a vehicle to investigate questions of history, tradition, race and identity, Leigh's current exhibition expands the possibilities both in her use of materials and in her approach to sculpture as performance.

Opening Reception |
This project will map the genealogy of the Bassac area in Phnom Penh as a community based, participatory exercise. A key objective is to discover ways to visualize the differences of urban form rather than continuities, and the characteristics of urban ruptures through various historical eras. The current urban form can be evaluated in relation to the legacy of its past. The mapping exercise will take place within and be informed by the artistic community of the famous White Building, currently under threat of demolition. The project aims to learn what is existing now in Bassac, and what was in the past, creating a new dialogue which can serve as a basis for ideas about the future of the city.

Opening Reception |
Negin Sharifzadeh is a multi-disciplinary artist, performer and filmmaker based in New York. Growing up in Iran, one of the world’s most historically and socially complex regions, in the wake of revolution, she is fascinated by the mechanisms and interplay of different natural, emotional, and political systems. Her work explores how these systems are composed; how information, energy and material are codified within them; and how bodies are impacted by and interact with them. The artist has had solo exhibitions and performances in Tehran, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and has been part of numerous international group exhibitions. She received her BFA in Sculpture from faculty of Fine Arts, Tehran University in Iran in 2002, and her BFA from School of the Art Institute of Chicago in performing arts in 2010.

For You Can Call Me F, the gallery will function as a forensic site in which the artist aligns society’s growing paranoia around contagion and hygiene (both public and private) with the enduring patriarchal fear of feminism and potency of female networks. Anicka Yi’s new works will gather biological information from one hundred women to cultivate the idea of the female figure as a viral pathogen, which undergoes external attempts to be contained and neutralized.

This exhibition features 4 paintings, using oil and digital media on linen. These works explore the intersections of painting, digital media, and photography. Some elements are hand-painted (a labor-intensive, low-tech method); others use digital technology to explore how it has changed the way we view the world around us (an emphatically high-tech process).

This is the first major New York exhibition devoted to renowned postwar Italian avant-garde artist Fabio Mauri. In a career spanning five decades and a diversity of disciplines and mediums, ranging from drawing, painting, sculpture, performance, film, and installation, to the theatre and theoretical writings that reflect upon the world at large, Fabio Mauri expressed through his art an unyielding critical exploration into the power of ideology and language associated with the Second World War, the rise of Fascism, and the Holocaust, and their lingering echoes in the modern world.

In response to Stanley Kunitz's poem, THE LAYERS, gallery artists Judith Greenwald and Tania Kravath present a body of work addressing life's passages. Like Kunitz, their art - both by way of process and product - represents an attempt to make meaning of and transform experience, to "live in the layers, not on the litter" as Kunitz suggests.

Noah Landfield’s recent work reflects the often volatile nature of metropolitan life. This reflection of volatility, seen particularly in the abstract foundational cloudbursts that fill his canvases, derive also from his longtime fascination with volcanic activity. Utilizing impressionistic overlays of metropolitan architectural renderings inspired by his visits to Japan and his reaction to the compact urban environment of Tokyo and other major cities there.

Strategically using materials for their aesthetic and historical senses and for their power to signify, the works in NOTHING ignore any bias regarding criss-crossing design and fine art as well as commodity and aesthetic functions. By casting his net widely, NOTHING uses pure form and symbolic meaning to transform commodity goods into sculptures and wall-hanging pieces referencing art and social histories, the seductive ideas of sacred geometry, and the roots of Existentialism.

Eric Fertman continues to produce witty and edgy sculpture with big attitude. His wry approach is a means of tackling topical issues through disjuncture. In doing so Fertman suggests the remove we often experience as bystanders to global cataclysms. Modern reality is constructed largely through images and in-turn our confrontation with social and biological strife is constantly mediated. Akin to Rousseau’s encounter with the jungle, it is this artistic license that accounts for Fertman’s immolated and eviscerated forms that merge the vegetal and the zoological into disquieting abstract compositions.

During the 1920s, Yuri Nikolaevich Rozhkov — a lesser-known and self-taught Russian graphic artist — made photomontages for several poems by Mayakovsky. While the whereabouts of many of these are unknown, 17 sheets of original photomontages for Mayakovsky’s poem “To the Workers of Kursk” are kept at the State Museum of Literature in Moscow. Rozhkov’s unique series of photomontages was inspired by the avant-garde energy of the poem and the geological discovery of the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly, the biggest iron-ore basin in the world.

From the artist: "My studio practice includes painting, drawing, and design in a visual attempt to be responsive to my immediate surroundings during a time of rapid global change. I strive to keep a spirit of freshness alive in my paintings. The work typically flows out onto the canvas intuitively. I try to be as creative as possible and to explore many ideas, some of which are: technology, communication, spontaneity, humor, politics, and materials. I see my role as an artist to make work that challenges assumptions of what makes a painting, and to move forward by embracing the unknown."
