Holton Rower at The Hole Gallery

Summer Arts at The Hole, 312 Bowery, through July 26, 2014

Not A Painting Adam Parker Smith, Andrew McNay, Bob Eikelboom, Colin Oulighan, Evan Robarts, Evie Falci, Ezra Tessler, Gabriel Pionkowski, Martha Friedman, Nick Theobald Radamés, Juni Figueroa, Will Stewart.

“Not A Painting” is an exhibit of emerging artists who make what cannot literally be called paintings. With an expansive array of materials they construct artworks that hang on the wall and have the logic of a painting but that do not use paint on canvas.

Sarah Charlesworth

Summer Arts at The New Museum, 235 Bowery

Sarah Charlesworth: Doubleworld
Now on view through September 20, 2015

Her influential body of work deconstructed the conventions of photography and gave emphasis to the medium’s importance in mediating our perception of the world. Charlesworth’s practice bridged the incisiveness of 1970s Conceptual art and the illuminating image-play of the later-identified “Pictures Generation.”

Albert Oehlen

Albert Oehlen: Home and Garden
Now on view through September 13, 2015

In the 1970s, Oehlen studied in Hamburg with Sigmar Polke and joined the circle of artists associated with the painter Jörg Immendorff. He came to prominence in Germany in the early 1980s alongside his friends and frequent collaborators Werner Büttner, Georg Herold, and Martin Kippenberger, participating in a general return to painting taking place internationally at the time.

425 Lafayette St.

Awake and Sing!:  Considered Clifford Odets’s finest play, AWAKE AND SING! premiered on Broadway in 1935, performed by the Group Theater. It is the story of the Bergers, a lower middle class, three-generation Jewish family living in a Bronx apartment during the Depression. Odets described it as “a struggle for life amid petty conditions,” capturing a frenetic, pressured existence in this crowded dwelling with robust authenticity.

Felix Osiemi, Bogolanfini

Summer Arts at The Sheen Center Gallery, through August 30
20 Bleecker St.


Artist Statement: These works are informed by interactions and studies that cut across the spiritual and secular. I integrated African textiles and symbols like Bogolanfini fabric, Ankara, Adinkra, and other elements as part of a continuum in my art making process to sustain an inquiry into my identity.
