Conference | Andy Warhol After Pop


Andy Warhol’s activities after 1968 have long been understood as less influential and less innovative than his work in the early 1960s. However, his wide-ranging production in the ‘70s and ‘80s reveals a period of great experimentation, in which the artist further explored the possibilities of painterly abstraction, media technologies, studio practices, mass cultural forms and phenomena, and underground subcultures. Now over thirty years since Warhol's death, his late artistic practice can be understood as far more diverse and multivalent than it appeared when he was alive. Yet, the work from this era has received less critical attention than that of the 1960s, and much of it remains little known. This symposium brings together scholars, curators, and artists to reassess Warhol’s activities in the period from 1968 until his death in 1987 in light of the exhibition Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again.

Gallery Talk | Twenty-six: Photographs as Text


Comprised of 26 stoic photographs installed in a seemingly melodic rhythm, Sam Margevicius’s solo exhibition challenges the boundaries of collective versus individual experience in modern daily life. Through repetition, simplicity of composition, and unexpected interruptions, Margevicius asks viewers to slow down and read the images as if they were text. The work presents a myriad of possible narratives, calibrating the intellectual rigor of today’s audience. Through sparse compositional shifts and methodical image placement Margevicius nods toward contemplation versus scrolling, inviting viewers to indulge in an introspective pause. The artist will discuss his work and show.

Workshop | New York City Food History - Restaurants: Eating and Experimenting


This class is an introduction to the food history of New York City, telling the stories of the edible goods produced, consumed, and venerated in homes and restaurants within the five boroughs. The history of restaurants, the meals of the wealthy and those of the working class, and the foodstuffs on all these plates will be explored.

The topic of the third week will be Restaurants: Eating and Experimenting. New York City is a restaurant town. How did this come about? The histories of restaurants and restaurant fare both famous (The Waldorf salad) and mundane (diner hash) will be explored, and the impact of immigration on dining choices will be discussed.

Film | Rackstraw Downes: A Painter (2014): An Artist and His Work


Since the early 1970s Rackstraw Downes, painter, has committed himself to painting from observation, on site, from start to finish. He has painted both urban and rural landscapes as well as interior spaces, in New York, Texas, and Maine. Although he simply paints exactly what he sees, the ordinary sites become transformed into extraordinary scenes. In 2014 Downes spent the summer painting the site located in the northern part of Manhattan and his studio in SoHo. This film captures the painter working on site, outdoors and indoors, in an observational style. Directed by Rima Yamazaki 40 min.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: Fallibility of Perception / the bliss of metamorphing collapse


Fallibility of Perception Since the mid-1990’s Joe Amrhein has been working with the translation, interpretation, and misinterpretation of language. With a background as a sign painter (yet another lost trade, a traditional practice where the human hand has been replaced by the computer), Amrhein manipulates letters, words, and phrases as both visual and verbal codes. He uses hand-painted lettering to create densely layered works that question the validity of knowledge. His works can be deciphered as text and/or viewed as images robust with the wealth of the visual vocabulary of fonts, painterly techniques, colors and scale. the bliss of metamorphing collapse Pussykrew, a nomadic duo of Polish new media artists Ewelina Alexandrowicz and Andrzej Wojtas, is currently in residence at NEW Inc./New Museum. The centerpiece of the show is the artists’ most recent project, presented as multiscreen video installation and virtual reality experience.

Opening Reception | Courting Incoherence: Remaking the Real


The human figures living within Joshua Meyer's canvases are beautifully unresolved. Thick layers of paint work to articulate fleeting forms, flirting with realism, but ultimately approaching and confronting the limits of our knowledge. Meyer's constant making and remaking of the real is undergirded by his remarkable ability to implicate the viewer in the creative process. As each composition's single, central figure dematerializes from a dense nest of brushstrokes into a pictorial space on the edge of abstraction, the audience is invited to play an active role in reconstructing the progressively open images. But at the heart of each canvas there is also a vulnerability.
