This is a charitable selling exhibition of 1,000 solar lamps designed by Kenyan engineer Evans Wadongo.  All proceeds will benefit Wadongo’s organization Sustainable Development For All Kenya (SDFA-Kenya), a Nairobi-based non-profit that creates opportunities for education, sustainable development, and economic empowerment throughout Africa.

“Out of Memory” at Marianne Boesky Gallery
April 18 – May 18, 2013
Opening: April 18, 6-8PM
118 East 64th Street
“Out of Memory” brings together a diverse group of internationally based artists, who mirror the attitudes, rituals and compulsivity of the post-digital generation’s unprecedented access to an infinite database.  Artworks in video, sculpture, painting, and mixed media adeptly juxtapose the obscure with the obvious, the morbid with the humorous, subcultures with mass media, and cultural nostalgia with concern for the future.  Curated by Eleanor Cayre, this exhibition features works from over 25 artists including: Cory Arcangel, Roe Ethridge, Rashid Johnson and Mark Leckey.

Martin Boyce at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery
April 18 – May 25
Opening: April 18, 6-8PM
521 West 21st Street
Through a series of architectural interventions — free-standing windows and hanging lanterns — Boyce transforms the ground-floor space into an immersive and dream-like landscape.

Hannah Starkey at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery
April 18 – May 25
Opening: April 18, 6-8PM
521 West 21st Street
Quietly contemplative yet intensely evocative, this new series of photographs builds on Starkey’s exploration of the physical and psychological connections between the individual and her everyday urban surroundings.


Zilia Sánchez at Artists Space
April 21 – June 16
Opening: April 20, 6-8PM
38 Greene Street
Born in Cuba in 1928, and trained in art and design at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes San Alejandro,  Sánchez has since the early 1950s developed a practice in painting, drawing and printmaking that is highly significant when considering the seemingly resolved history of minimalism.
