June 3, 2014

THURSDAY

Eddie Martinez: “Neanderthal Jeans” at Half Gallery
June 5 – July 15
Opening: June 5, 6-8pm

Pierre Dorion at Jack Shainman Gallery
June 5 – July 25
Opening: June 5, 6-8pm
524 West 24th Street
Dorion’s process deals with the conversion of photographs to paintings, removing details and speaking to Minimalist tropes. In this solo exhibition, he presents his exploration of the intersection of architecture and painting as well as the boundary between representation and abstraction.

Florian Maier-Aichen at 303 Gallery
June 5 – July 25
507 West 24th Street
Navigating the fraught terrain where photography and painting intersect and collapse into one another, Maier-Aichen’s newest works incorporate strategies from both media while persistently crossing back and forth along their borders.

Louise Lawler: “No Drones” at Metro Pictures
June 5 – July 25
Opening: June 5, 6-8pm
519 West 24th Street
In her exhibition “No Drones” at Metro Pictures, Louise Lawler exhibits black-and-white images that are traced from her iconic photographs, printed on vinyl and mounted directly on the wall. Lawler uses her photographs of artworks in museums, private collections, auction house and storage to continue her complex and ever-evolving consideration of art and objects in their working contexts.

FRIDAY

Robert De Niro: “Sr. Paintings and Drawings, 1948-1984” at DC Moore Gallery
Opening: June 6, 5-7pm
535 West 22nd Street
By the early 1950s, Robert De Niro, Sr. (1922-1993) had arrived at his boldly expressive mode of painting. Through strong color and reductive shapes, he merged aspects of abstraction and representation in figure paintings, still lifes, and landscapes.

SATURDAY

Larry Clark: “they thought i were but i aren’t anymore…” at Luhring Augustine
June 7 – August 1
Opening: June 7, 6-8pm
531 West 24th Street
Luhring Augustine presents an exhibition of works by Larry Clark that will span his career from 1961 to the present, starting with his earliest portrait of his friend Johnny Bridges. Made with a Rolleiflex camera borrowed from his mother, the portrait is emblematic of all the work that Clark would go on to make.

“Living with Pop. A Reproduction of Capitalist” at Artists Space
June 8 – August 17
Opening: June 7, 6-8pm
38 Greene Street & 55 Walker Street
Living with Pop. A Reproduction of Capitalist Realism is the first exhibition in the US to take an in-depth look at the phenomenon of Capitalist Realism, which for a short period was synonymous with a specific style of post-war West German art. The exhibition aims to articulate this term’s relevance to the social and cultural developments of the past fifty years, leading to its re-appearance in recent political and critical theory. Artists include Manfred Kuttner, Konrad Lueg, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, with contributions by Christopher Williams.

SUNDAY

Brice Dellsperger: “Body Double: Vous N’en Croirez Pas Vos Yeux” at Team Gallery
June 8 – August 1
Opening:
83 Grand Street
47 Wooster Street
For the past two decades, Dellsperger has developed a vast, nearly overwhelming body of work, titled Body Double after Brian De Palma’s psycho-sexual thriller of the same name. The oeuvre consists of thirty video works, investigations into the conceptual, social and formal tropes that inform cinema and spectatorship.
