Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations

Online Exhibition
Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Gallery

Ongoing
 
The Hunter College Art Galleries have initiated an online project in concert with our postponed spring 2020 exhibition Constance DeJong (now rescheduled for fall 2020). This project coincides with DeJong's final semester teaching in Hunter's MFA Studio Art program. 
 
Time-based and multi-platform, DeJong’s work has circulated widely and with admiration in literary and performance circles since the late 1970s, influencing both her contemporaries and students. Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations brings together the voices of many artists and writers, mostly Hunter College Studio Art MFA alumni, who have worked closely with DeJong over the last two decades. New submissions will be posted each week. 
 
Constance DeJong: Digital Constellations is organized by Sarah Watson, Jocelyn Spaar, and Liz Naiden, with Lazarus Graduate Fellow Matthew Weiderspon.

Nicky Enright: Sense Us 2020

Hunter East Harlem Gallery
(Viewable from 119th Street Windows)
2180 3rd Avenue at 119th Street
New York, NY

August 15, 2020 - January 31, 2021

Sense Us 2020 is a mixed-media installation of images and text on flattened shipping boxes by artist Nicky Enright. It is a public response to the questions around race on the current 2020 U.S. Census. Created to mimic the aesthetic of protest signs on cardboard and with a symbolically limited palette of black, white, and brown, the installation points to America’s pervasive fixation on race/ethnicity criteria and status checkboxes.  

Through the dynamic installation of Sense Us 2020, Enright strives to understand the connections among the race/ethnicity boxes on the census and other boxes of this historical moment: from the casket boxes of recurrent racist violence, to election-year ballot boxes and quarantine and intubation boxes; from mass incarceration, to town “squares” and monument pedestal boxes; from Zoom/Skype boxes, Amazon boxes, and cash vaults to riot-police kettling, a state-of-the-art form of containment.

Hunter East Harlem Gallery is currently closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic but the Hallway Gallery can be seen through the windows on 119th Street.
 

Nari Ward and Sir David Adjaye Obe in Conversation
part of
Nari Ward: We The People

Online Event
MCA Denver

August 20, 2pm

Exhibition through September 20

Join MCA Denver for a free, virtual conversation between exhibiting artist Nari Ward and Sir David Adjaye OBE, the architect who designed MCA Denver. Ward's work often engages directly with the site in which it is installed, generating an intimate response to the architecture and opening up conversations between the art and its setting. Adjaye, an acclaimed architect who has designed several museums since completing MCA Denver in 2007, creates spaces uniquely suited for the scale and impact of contemporary art. We look forward to a lively conversation between these two world-renowned creators and innovators.

Lisa Corinne Davis featured in The Pursuit of Aesthetics

Online Exhibition
Morgan Lehman Gallery

Through September 5

What do we say about artwork that offers an opportunity for contemplation and aesthetics? What relevance does it have in this moment? An artist’s DNA is set, accordingly, how do we work through this moment in history? Maybe some days we do not paint at all and other days we turn off our newsfeed long enough to create an abstract image.

Color carries emotion; nature inspires; memory guides our hands; beauty is persuasive.

20% of proceeds from sales will be contributed to the American Civil Liberties Union

Valerie Jaudon: Prepositions

DC Moore Gallery
535 West 22nd Street
New York, NY

Through October 3

Valerie Jaudon: Prepositions showcases recent paintings that continue Jaudon's longstanding examination, begun in the mid-1970s, of the bounded yet infinitely expandable world of the finely wrought, intricate, and maze-like abstract image.

Exhibition catalogue with essay by Raphael Rubinstein available.

Paul Ramírez Jonas, Eternal Flame

Socrates Sculpture Park
32-01 Vernon Boulevard
Long Island City, NY

Through March 14

Paul Ramírez Jonas’ ‘Eternal Flame’ is a monument in the form of a communal grill and imagines cooking culture as both a symbolic and real eternal flame – there is always a lit cooking fire somewhere on this globe. The work honors the role of cuisine and cooking in cultural cohesion and expression among communities and identities,  even when individuals and families relocate locally, nationally or internationally.

‘Eternal Flame’ is designed to recognize the importance of dialogue and exchange.
During this new time of social distancing the grill will not be available for public use, but instead bring people together philosophically and culturally through the common experience of cooking and eating. With this in mind, a series of videos will be released with local and distant chefs invited by the artist to address the meaning of the eternal flame while preparing recipes and relating stories on each dish’s significance. Ramírez Jonas imagines cooking culture as a symbolic eternal flame, enduring in communities for generations, over vast distances.
