Sherrie Levine

Levine’s work engages many of the core tenets of postmodern art, challenging notions of originality, authenticity, and identity. Since the late 1970s, she has created a singular and complex oeuvre using a variety of media, including photography, painting, and sculpture.

The Expressionist Nude

This exhibition considers the shift in treatment of the human figure in the early twentieth century through a selection of works on paper from Austria and Germany. Traditionally the nude had been presented in an idealized fashion. Proponents of the late nineteenth-century Symbolist movement in Europe were among the first to offer near caricatures of the nude, often imbued with psychological undertones.

Sanctum Infernum

"Sanctum Infernum is a dichotomy; contradiction that is present in all of us, the conflict, and our never ending effort to balance them out. The demon appearing in female form was particularly of the interest to me, yet I don’t necessarily see this occurrence as something evil since I am not a religious nor was I raised in religious environment. What I was interested in exploring in this series is strength and power, desire, pleaseure and pain, decay, life and death. Since they are my own creations they do not belong to any other mythologies or religions, nor stories, except Medea. I view them as my own demons, my strengths but also weaknesses, my feelings and emotions, my dreams and my ideas."

Sayaka Maruyama and Esther Stocker

The two artists fabricate fantastical space of dreamscapes and fictional truths, by distinctive and different means; Sayaka Maruyama by evocation of mood through color and texture, along with twisting and coalescing seemingly incompatible historical references. Esther Stocker by situating and manipulating otherwise intuitive and basic geometry into complicated and nuanced disorientation. In the exhibition, the two artists set up a space that is lost in another space.

Altered Appearances

This show rounds up photographic works from just about every big name in contemporary art from the past 20 years. Among the many pieces on view are stills from Matthew Barney’s “Cremaster” films, Andreas Serrano’s portrait of members of the Ku Klux Klan, Gregory Crewdson’s cinematic narratives and Barbara Ess’s haunting pinhole camera pictures.

Black Mirror

For this year’s Summer Open, Aperture’s annual open-call exhibition, they asked photographers to consider the ways in which current reality might echo outlandish narratives of science fiction. The title Black Mirror is borrowed from the 2011 British television series of the same name, which imagines a dystopian near future—a Twilight Zone for the age of the smartphone.

Wes Anderson Art Show

Spoke Art is proud to present their sixth annual Wes Anderson art exhibit, "Bad Dads" - a group show of over 70 artists, being held as an exclusive weekend pop-up show at Joseph Gross Gallery in New York City's vibrant Chelsea arts district. "Bad Dads" began six years ago as a pop-up exhibition curated by gallery owner Ken Harman and has now blossomed through the years into a highly anticipated, memorable, and often costumed art event.

Santi Moix: A Moment

Santi Moix’s works have long been characterized by their accumulation of saturated biomorphic forms that are simultaneously figurative, narrative and abstract. In this vein, these new canvases mark a continuation of his signature collaged aesthetic. Moix works quite rapidly, exploring inspirations, ideas, and stories through a mass of studies in watercolor on paper pinned to the walls of his studio in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard.

Stanley Whitney, Dance the Orange

Following time spent in Italy and then later in Egypt in the mid-1990s, Whitney developed the weighty, almost architectural approach that has now become his signature style. Rhythmic and lyrical, with a combination of pre-ordained structure and improvisation inspired in part by his love of jazz, the square-format paintings arrange rectangles of vivid, single colors in a deliberately irregular grid, with the close-fitting, many-hued “bricks” or “tiles” stacked vertically and arrayed in horizontal bands.

Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland                       

This exhibition will bring to light the curious history of Wonderland, presenting an engaging account of the genesis, publication, and enduring appeal of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  From here, the ethos of Alice and the universe of Wonderland took hold of our imagination, and—150 years later—we are still following her down the rabbit hole.

FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds

FAILE, a Brooklyn-based collaboration between artists Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller, raises questions about our relationship to consumer culture, religious traditions, and the urban environment by blurring the boundaries between fine art, street art, and popular culture.

 

The Rise of Sneaker Culture

From their modest origins in the mid-nineteenth century to high-end sneakers created in the past decade, sneakers have become a global obsession. The Rise of Sneaker Culture is the first exhibition to explore the complex social history and cultural significance of the footwear now worn by billions of people throughout the world.

Both exhibitions are at Brooklyn Museum through October 4th
