Opening Reception | Considering Unknow Know With What Is, And: Paintings on the Human Footprint


A presentation of work by Chris Johanson featuring ten new paintings on recycled canvas. Over the last five years, Johanson has made a significant departure from previous bodies of work. Reflecting on life and the material footprint that humans leave behind, Johanson has abandoned wood substrates for discarded drop cloths and clothing stretched over found stretcher bar materials, creating slow and meticulous paintings reminiscent of ancient frescoes or mandala paintings. A deliberately measured and thoughtful method, Johanson considers his work on these paintings to be a meditative process. He contemplates themes of impermanence, fluidity and the overall fleeting nature of existence.

Opening Reception | Immortal Reflection: Subversive Paintings


A literary genre developed in 18th century France later known as the libertine novel. From the mid 1750s until the French Revolution, writers such as Denis Diderot, Cyrano de Bergerac and Choderlos de Laclos created narratives that were deeply rebellious. Their work balance seduction and the erotic with a resistance to the structures of the establishment. Genieve Figgis’s subversive paintings share the same sensibility. Her work is innately libertine, exuding pleasure and satire, sensitivity and subversion in equal measure.

Opening Reception | Peter Berlin: One of a Kind: Hand-Painted Photo Self-Portraits


An exhibition of the artist’s hand-painted photographic self portraits from the 1970s and 1980s, along with other work. In his early 20s while still living in Germany, Peter Berlin began designing and sewing skin-tight clothing which he would wear as he cruised the parks and train stations of Berlin, Rome, Paris, New York, and San Francisco. After several long-term stays on the east coast of the United States, he eventually settled in San Francisco in 1969 and became a fixture on the streets with his signature look and perpetual posing. Trained in photography, Berlin would shoot self portraits in order to document his favorite outfits. By the 1970s, as he became increasingly well known, these photographs grew into a mail order business. However, often in the excitement of a shoot, the artist would inadvertently underexpose some frames of film. Not wanting to waste any of the prints, Berlin began taking a brush with acrylic and oil paint to enhance and beautify the compositions.

Opening Reception | Spheres and Lenses: Translucent Sculptures


Artist Helen Pashgian’s first solo exhibition in New York since 1969. This exhibition will feature a series of new lens and sphere sculptures, expanding on the bodies of work for which she is best known. Born in 1934 in Pasadena, Pashgian is widely recognized as a pioneer and leading member of the 1960s Light and Space movement in Southern California, which explored Minimalism with a close eye toward the interaction between light and space. Over the course of her career, Pashgian has produced an extensive oeuvre of innovative sculptures―vibrantly colored columns, discs, and spheres―that engage light, color, and form in wholly unique ways.

Opening Reception | Toma: Paintings by a Haitian-Born, Miami-Based Artist


Tomm El-Saieh’s dense and rhythmic paintings derive inspiration from myriad sources, ranging from the history of international abstraction to Haitian Vodou traditions, such as trance-induction and percussive music. Obsessive markings—notations, shapes, scratches, and erasures—saturate the surfaces of his canvases, creating fields of bursting, complex color. The synesthetic, all-over compositions that El-Saieh produces through his meticulous process are at once sublime and sensual, mystical and direct, chaotic and restrained. While firmly planted in the realm of abstraction, El-Saieh’s paintings also suggest complex networks, sprawling cities, or molecular structures. Within the clustered code of his brushwork, figurative associations emerge and recede.

Author Reading | Solid Ivory: Oscar-Winning Director James Ivory Discusses His Memoir (online)


A carefully crafted mosaic of memories, portraits, and reflections, the Academy Award–winning filmmaker James Ivory, a partner in the legendary Merchant Ivory Productions and the director of A Room with a View, Howards End, Maurice, and The Remains of the Day, tells stories from his remarkable life and career as one of the most influential directors of his time. At times, he touches on his love affairs, looking back coolly and with unexpected frankness. From first meeting his collaborator and life partner, Ismail Merchant, at the Indian Consulate in New York to winning an Academy Award at age eighty-nine for Call Me by Your Name; from seeing his first film at age five in Klamath Falls, Oregon, to memories of Satyajit Ray, Jean Renoir, The New Yorker magazine’s film critic Pauline Kael (his longtime enemy), Vanessa Redgrave, J. D. Salinger, George Cukor, Kenneth Clark, Bruce Chatwin, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, and Merchant—Ivory writes with invariable fluency, wit, and perception about what made him who he is and how he made the movies for which he is known and loved.

Book Discussion | Sweet Noise: Love in Wartime: Emotional Photographs (online)


Love stories during the Holocaust are as inspiring as they are remarkable. In photographer Max Hirshfeld's new book Sweet Noise: Love in Wartime, he offers an intimate look at one of these stories through powerful photographs, a series of emotional love letters between his parents, and the narrative of a son's pilgrimage exploring his origins. This is a program exploring Hirshfeld's work with the photographer and Jacqueline Kott-Wolle, a fellow artist and daughter of Holocaust survivors. Hirshfeld and Kott-Wolle will explore different forms of love, expression, and the idea that Jewish trauma and hardship did not end after the war.

Author Reading | Lure: Dystopian Graphic Novel (online)


Cartoonist Lane Milburn launches of his debut science fiction graphic novel, a scintillating, close-to-home dystopic parable rendered in haunting and kaleidoscopic detail. In a questionably distant future, the world’s elite use the ocean planet Lure as a luxury vacation hub—but when climate change threatens Earth’s long-term habitability, many of those who can afford it move to Lure for good. When artist Jo Spartz is invited to Lure to collaborate on a large-scale public art installation, it seems like the chance of a lifetime until she stumbles across a nefarious plot by her corporate benefactors and feels compelled to go public.

Concert | Singer-Songwriter Who Weaves in African Rhythms


This artist blends the sounds and rhythms of her upbringing in her songs. Her writing may lean towards that of singer-songwriter, but she weaves in rhythms of her African heritage and loves to use percussive elements in her playing. If the three main building blocks of music consist of melody, harmony and rhythm, then rhythm is the least complex in popular American/European music. But a variety of music from the African diaspora have a heavy emphasis on the rhythmic element. The artist's intention is to bring more gravity towards rhythmic feel as well, whilst still being true to the traditional song-form of the tradition of the great singer-songwriters.ammy-nominated soul singer Musiq Soulchild, and acclaimed German soul singer Joy Denalane, and has worked with US musicians/producers Kelo Saunders and Chris Sholar, to name a few.
