Rachel Gisela Cohen, Camouflage

Thomas Hunter Project Space
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY

Through March 23

Thomas Hunter Project Space is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings and drawings by New York City-based artist Rachel Gisela Cohen.
 
In nature, bright, bold coloration and patterning is often a signifier of seduction or a warning sign for danger; like the juxtaposing yellow and black stripes found on a wasp, or the crimson circled abdomen of a black widow spider. Aposematic color and patterning is used as a signal, or warning sign for predators. The color and patterning of Cohen’s sequined encrusted chromatic paintings stem from both an observation and reflection on organisms and materials found deep inside Costa Rican rainforest ecosystems and New York City’s garment district. Using the decorative as a defense mechanism, her work reflects on beauty, surface and the excess of contemporary culture, dancing between the natural and material world.
 

NeON: Photography

Hans Hofmann: The California Exhibitions, 1931

Leubsdorf Gallery
132 East 68th Street
New York, NY

Through May 5

At the invitation of the artist and educator Worth Ryder, Hans Hofmann traveled from Munich to teach at the University of California at Berkeley in 1930 and again in 1931. In the summer of 1931, Hofmann mounted his first exhibitions in the United States, in San Francisco at the Palace of the Legion of Honor and across the bay at Berkeley’s Havilland Hall.  Ryder helped to organize the exhibitions, and he apologized in his short catalogue text for the Legion of Honor that the exhibition included only drawings rather than the artist’s paintings—“but,” he insisted, “in these drawings, so small in size yet so vast in scope, the greatest achievements of modern art are in solution.”

Hunter College’s exhibition, Hans Hofmann: The California Exhibitions, 1931 revisits Hofmann’s 1931 exhibitions and the drawings Hofmann showed, to show what Ryder saw as the solutions of modern art. Included in the Hunter installation will be some thirty works, all of which were included in the San Francisco and Berkeley shows, drawn from the holdings from the Renate, Hans, and Maria Hofmann Trust: portraits, figure studies, and landscapes, most completed in Europe in the late 1920s, alongside his students in Saint-Tropez, others realized on the West Coast, as he discovered the California landscape.   

Hans Hofmann: The California Exhibitions, 1931 is organized by Hunter College MA students and Hofmann Research Fellows Mindy Friedman, Chika Jenkins, and Anna Tome, with Howard Singerman, professor and Phyllis and Joseph Caroff Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Hunter College.  It is supported by a generous grant from the Renate, Hans, and Maria Hofmann Trust.

Crease: Rachelle Dang and Kim Hoeckele
curated by Laura Frantz

Underdonk
1329 Willoughby Avenue
Brooklyn, NY

Through March 31
Opening Reception: March 1, 6pm
 
How does the body carry history?
 
Underdonk is pleased to present new work by Rachelle Dang and Kim Hoeckele. The show features sculpture and photography made in conversation with history, mining ethnographic, scientific, and art historical images as source material. Through Hoeckele’s lens, Athenian marble, worn away by centuries of human feet, takes on the texture of wrinkled skin. A terracotta of Venus, under Dang’s hand, goes from idealized to abject. The artists complicate the legacy of this history and challenge the authority of the cultures that created them. Their work proposes a messier standard of beauty: one that is mixed, eroded, and patched together; creased but also caressed.
 

Nari Ward: We the People

New Museum
235 Bowery
New York, NY

Through May 26

“Nari Ward: We the People” will feature over thirty sculptures, paintings, videos, and large-scale installations from throughout Ward’s twenty-five-year career, highlighting his status as one of the most important and influential sculptors working today. Since the early 1990s, Ward has produced his works by accumulating staggering amounts of humble materials and repurposing them in consistently surprising ways. His approach evokes a variety of folk traditions and creative acts of recycling from Jamaica, where he was born, as well as the material textures of Harlem, where he has lived and worked for the past twenty-five years. Yet Ward also relies on research into specific histories and sites to uncover connections among geographically and culturally disparate communities and to explore the tension between tradition and transformation.
