_.Scheduled(VariableRatio):secondary-conditioned-immediateReinforcement(s)-handlerSearch1_DrillAndPracticeVERSION2.exe, is an interactive experiment in operant conditioning to articulate the structure of intimacies inherent in behavioral training.

In a training session for a human puppy and her handler, positive and negative reinforcements are enacted in a circle between audience members and the performer. Engaged together through a system of exchange, they mutually agree on how to choreograph the giving and receiving of a reward. As rewards and punishments offer potentially precarious and playful communication, this choreographic transfer of power is an act of BDSM. Through this temporary relationship, called “pick-up play,” viewers witness a visceral dance that asks questions about how consent is communicated, what qualifies as violence, and how desire can manifest.
 

Karen Tepaz, Loose Forms

Thomas Hunter Project Space
930 Lexington Avenue
New York, NY

March 29 - April 20

Thomas Hunter Project Space is pleased to present LOOSE FORMS, a solo exhibition by Karen Tepaz.  This exhibition explores the expressive potential of object and the complex spaces that develop when form, texture and color are blended creating a new place between the blurred lines. 

Tepaz continues her investigation of form and material while experimenting with the scale and presentation of her work.  Tepaz works the balance between surface treatment and color selection and draws correlations from her influences of flowers, language the body and sounds of fluidity.  Both the work and the viewer are free to shift and transform perspective at every angle as each form unfolds naturally, creating an environment for mindful contemplation.

Karen Tepaz, born in Los Angeles, CA, holds an M.F.A in Sculpture from Yale University School of Art and a B.F.A in Ceramics from California State University, Long Beach.  Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Sardine gallery, (Brooklyn, NY) CACTTUS gallery (Long Beach, CA), and group shows at Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA) The Shirley Fiterman Art Center, BMCC (NY,NY), The Gallery ATLAS (Newburgh, NY), BOMB POP-UP (Brooklyn, NY), Basement Projects (Santa Ana, CA) among others. In 2018 Tepaz co-curated “Flat Touch” and “In Between the Lines” in Steuben Gallery at Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, NY). Tepaz lives and works in Brooklyn, NY

Crease: Rachelle Dang and Kim Hoeckele

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.
