Robert Swain Exhibition at 375 Hudson Street

I am proud to have co-curated "Robert Swain: Syntax", which was installed last weekend in the large atrium at 375 Hudson Street.  Swain, one of the foremost color theorists at work today has been a practicing artist since the 1960s and is known for his large-scale paintings which explore and explicate his findings.  He has created six large-scale works specifically for the space.  A color brochure with an essay by Matthew Deleget, founder of MINUS Space in Dumbo accompanies the show; my co-curator is Lenore Goldberg of Hines Management, who sponsored the exhibition along with Hudson Square Properties, LLC.  An opening reception will be held at 375 Hudson (just below Houston in west SoHo) on Tuesday, May 22 from 5 - 7 PM.  I have organized a panel discussion on June 5th, starting at 5:30 PM about the work, which will feature critic Donald Kuspit and curator Tricia Bloom of the Newark Museum, moderated by Matthew Deleget.

AARON WEXLER EXHIBITION AT 527 Madison Avenue

Please join me and artist Aaron Wexler as we celebrate the opening of his show at the 527 Madison Avenue Lobby Gallery from May 16 – August 24, 2018. 

Aaron Wexler creates collages of great visual complexity using a variety of sources. While much of his work is made from paper that he has himself painted and cut into shapes, the artist also uses commercially printed patterns,images from books, photographs and a wide range of other material in his collages. Wexler’s shapes are arrangedon a sophisticated internal structure that calls to mind systems of organization used in typography. Mixing hard edges and painterly areas with intertwined lines, Wexler arrives at works that resonate on many levels.

Located at 54th Street and Madison Avenue, the show is open to the public 9 AM – 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The reception will be held in the lobby from 5 PM - 7 PM at 527 Madison Avenue. 

This will be the thirteenth exhibition in 527 Madison’s ongoing program showcasing noteworthy emerging and mid-career artists.
