Lynn Umlauf was born into a family of artists. She moved to New York in 1966-67, and first started showing in Italy. Her first New York show was with the Hal Bromm Gallery, and her first museum inclusion was with the 1975 Whitney Biennial. Her work has increasingly taken the form of large, onsite installations. She also prowls the Italian countryside, making improvisatory drawings that are closely connected to sculptures. Her method consists in using sanded and impregnated paper with pastel, watercolor or acrylic medium and often glued on free shaped canvases, which lends a handmade quality close to fresco. The result evokes analogies to shields and masks of primitive societies. ArtSpace

Cell Count brings together artist who grapple with the discursive and material histories that underpin HIV criminalization in order to unpack and re-configure the metaphors and assumptions that enable the punishment an incarceration of people living with HIV. Seeking to place HIV criminalization in a broader context, Cell Count suggests that these laws are not unique to the AIDS epidemic but instead echo a long history of medically sanctioned violence and incarceration in the United States.

Matthew Stone – Neophyte
In the fourth solo show from British artist Matthew Stone, The Hole presents over twenty new works filling all galleries for NEOPHYTE.
“Newly planted”; the evocative etymology of the word neophyte, means someone entirely new to a subject, skill or calling.
By photographing paint strokes made on glass and working in various 3D software, the artist is able to sculpt bodies together in three dimensions using layers of these painted marks. Stone’s figures inhabit a shared world; defined by a grey infinity floor, proliferating petals of paint and a raw linen void as backdrop. In this mode of painting, brushstrokes respond as objects within their virtual environment rather than purely as illusionistic marks existing to suggest space.

First Look: Whispering Pines
This is an online-only exhibition.VIEW WORK
In this internet soap opera, a quest for enlightenment leads only to new-age kitsch.
A collaboration between artist Shana Moulton and composer Nick Hallett, Whispering Pines 10 (2018) is a continuation of Moulton’s celebrated video series by the same name, and features a performance by the artist as her alter ego, Cynthia. The website offers a new format for Moulton’s premise: an episodic internet soap opera, with original music and libretto by Hallett.
Whispering Pines 10 is a Creative Capital Project. Major support for First Look is provided by the Neeson / Edlis Artist Commissions Fund
