Valentin Carron - Music is a s-s-serious thing

303 Gallery

507 W 24th Street
10011 New York, NY
Exhibition
Online since 3 November 2014

303 Gallery is pleased to present our third exhibition of new work by Valentin Carron. A man comes home from a day at work, removes his belt, and throws it onto a stool. The belt unfurls itself coming to rest dangling from the stool, frozen in the insipid elegance of the gestural. In the work of Valentin Carron, this everyday apologue becomes a series of assemblage sculptures consisting of exquisite glass casts of men's belts tossed onto pieces of found furniture.

Freight + Volume

530 W. 24th St.
10011 New York, NY
Exhibition
Online since 3 November 2014

Embarrassment, failure, dark secrets, anxiety, obsessive repetition, moments of self-deprecation tempered by hyperbolic flights of self-aggrandizement: it's all part of the scribbled, sketched, and handwritten work of Michael Scoggins. Supersized sheets of lined composition paper become the blank canvas for confessional narrative, vulnerable pep-talks, and gleeful boasts ("#1 Best Art"). Read more...

Exhibition
Online since 3 November 2014

Per Mårtensson’s second exhibit with the gallery is centered on architectural abstraction. Inspired by views in the urban settings of his native Malmö, Sweden, he has used images of broken windows and elevator doors as models for paintings mimicking constructivist abstraction on one hand and quite realistic depictions of a stainless steel surface on the other.

Michel Pérez Pollo - New Work

Mai 36 Galerie

Rämistrasse 37
8001 Zurich
Exhibition
Online since 27 October 2014

Mai 36 Galerie is delighted to be able to present the first solo-exhibition of works by Michel Pérez Pollo in our gallery. The painter Pérez Pollo's abstract-figurative works give him a unique position in his generation, and among artists in Cuba as a whole. Abstract-figurative - surely a contradiction - given that Pérez Pollo develops his paintings out of at least two contexts, so that his works consist of at least two stories, one that is more realistic and one that is abstract.

Exhibition
Online since 21 October 2014

"The diagram or abstract or abstract machine is the map of relations between forces, a map of destiny, or intensity, which proceeds by primary non-localizable relations and at every moment passes through every point, or rather in every relation from one point to another." (Deleuze and all. 2002). The artists in this show continue to respond to these new forms of mutating representations of thought itself in variety of media. Read more...
