The group exhibition, Meow! (or 貓), which is currently on display at LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies, features the work of eight artists, including Visual Arts Adjunct Assistant Professor Kiki Smith and Mentor Mark Dion.

Catlin has assisted and collaborated with the artists in the exhibit for seven years, since he was a Visual Arts MFA student in 2011.

Opens today, March 9, 2018

This exhibition brings together artists from across the United States—Carolina Caycedo, Demian DinéYazhi´ with Ginger Dunnill, Torkwase Dyson, Cy Gavin, Lena Henke, and Erin Jane Nelson—whose work responds to the precarious state of the environment through a personal lens. Experimenting with form and narrative in painting, video, and sculpture, these artists address how ideology—as much as technology, industry, and architecture—impacts all living things.

Though each contends with facts or histories that are real and observable, none takes a documentary approach. Rather, these artists adopt a highly subjective position, embracing emotion, intuition, spirituality, and myth to help understand our intrinsic place within the “natural” world. They share the sense that scientific, or “rational,” thought can reinforce a limited view of our planet and its inhabitants—one that assumes they can and should be controlled.

The works present a wide range of subjects, from communities affected by hydroelectric-dam construction in South America to those displaced during the controversial transformation of New York in the mid-twentieth century by city official Robert Moses. They draw from distinct visual traditions, including Southern handcraft, sixteenth-century architecture, history painting, and hard-edge abstraction. Through their varied interests and formal approaches, all of these artists assert the relevance of individual experience and perspective to address concerns that are global in scale and effect. In the words of artist Torkwase Dyson, this exhibition is not just about “the way we connect...but understanding also the waters that are between us.”

The exhibition is organized by Elisabeth Sherman, assistant curator, and Margaret Kross, curatorial assistant.

Torkwase Dyson - Solo Exhibition at The Drawing Center

'Winter Term'

February 28 - March 11, 2018

The Drawing Center is pleased to announce Winter Term, a new annual initiative in which the museum will partner with an artist or organization whose mission it is to explore the transformative role that drawing can play in civic and global society. The yearly program, which will consist of public events, classes, and performances, as well as an exhibition, will build a community of people to investigate the efficacy of drawing as a tool for addressing inequity and encouraging social change. In a world ever more in need of human connection and compassion, Winter Term will ask how drawing, the most universal medium, might extend beyond the gallery space to provide concrete tools for collective engagement and collaboration. In this way, Winter Term provides a new model for exhibition making, as well as for the role that art institutions can play in the real world.

Torkwase Dyson will exhibit as part of 'Between the Waters' at The Whitney Museum

Carolina Caycedo (b. 1978, London; lives and works in Los Angeles, CA), Demian DinéYazhi ́(b. 1983, Gallup, NM; lives and works in Portland, OR), Torkwase Dyson (b. 1973, Chicago, IL; lives and works in Brooklyn, NY), Cy Gavin (b. 1985, Pittsburgh, PA; lives and works in New York, NY), Lena Henke (b. 1982, Warburg, Germany; lives and works New York, NY), and Erin Jane Nelson (b. 1989, Neenah, WI; lives and works in Atlanta, GA).

September 10 - October 15, 2016

09/08/2016

In dialogue with selected pieces from the Bumiller Collection, Nicky Broekhuysen presents works that question how we relate, explore and create history. The invention and dissemination of writing marked a change in perspective – from oral traditions, with many interpretations, towards a more fixed meaning, which, in the digital age, is being replaced as we ring in a new phase in historiography. Large parts of the world‘s population are connected together via the internet, and participate in historiography through a continuous process of reading, commenting and sharing. Oral and written traditions are being united into something new, which in turn alters us and our view of the past and present. Through her work, Broekhuysen makes this shift tangible.

“Using binary numbers 1 and 0 as ‘building blocks’ of form in my work, I use binary code as a metaphorical language, which reflects this digital context. Binary code also represents data, information and meaning collected and stored from society. This information not only forms the basis of our ideas and beliefs but also the social and political structures that we subsequently build from them. The idea of potential therefore forms a cornerstone to the exhibition,” says Broekhuysen.

B.O.G.O.!
July 9 – August 28, 2015

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 9, 5:00 – 8:00pm 

Featuring work by

Adam Parker Smith, Biddle/Frankel, Glendalys Medina, Ida Badal, Joe Rudko, John Powers, Leslie Roberts, Matt Waples, Nathan Catlin, Patrick Mohundro, and Shannon Finnegan
 

Davidson Contemporary is pleased to presents a group show titled BOGO!. A term used in retail and wholesale shopping, BOGO stands for “Buy One, Get One”, and is used by retailers to encourage sales, move inventory, and garner attention to a product. However, in this case, Davidson Contemporary has asked each of the artists to include two works with the understanding that they will be sold together, and for the price of one. It is our hope that this aggressive approach will provide these artists with both sales and exposure.


To help compensate the eleven artists, more than half of each sale will go directly to the artist. Davidson Contemporary will also donate 25% of each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in an effort to provide further incentive for collectors to buy as the gallery helps support the continued fight against breast cancer.

BERLIN ART LINK STUDIO VISIT: NICKY BROEKHUYSEN

BERLIN ART LINK STUDIO VISIT: NICKY BROEKHUYSEN

Article by Alena Sokhan, Studio Visit Photographs by Conor Clarke

"Artist Nicky Broekhuysen welcomes us to her studio in Moabit, a high ceilinged, concrete room that looks industrial but comfortable, the walls hung with her last series of works and the floor space dominated by a giant work table. The faint scent of oil paint is in the air, but not too powerful. A pot of coffee is always brewing, a couch is positioned beside it invitingly. Broekhuysen is animated when she talks, shifting around the room, pulling out books, or with effortless motions inking and stamping a work in progress. For the last eight years, Broekhuysen has been making images from the same two forms, a small “I” and “0,” tightly stamped over large sheets of paper or on objects in different compositions. Broekhuysen’s series of images or site specific works are all variations and arrangements of the same binary digits. However, rather than limiting her, she finds that this principle continually generates new ideas for works or series of works. “I can’t work fast enough,” Broekhuysen tells us."

02/24/2015

Davidson Contemporary (Booth A5) is pleased to be exhibiting once again at Pulse Contemporary Art Fair New York, March 5-8, 2015.  At this year’s iteration of the fair, Davidson Contemporary will be showing new work by Ghost of a Dream, Neil Hamon, Darren Lago, Sam Messenger, Kim Rugg, and Thomas Witte.

 

Davidson Contemporary is also proud to be showing the work of Nicky Broekhuysen for the first time. Broekhuysen’s works on paper are abstract, but comprised entirely of binary code – 1s and 0s – the basic building blocks of a language used for storage and memory. Born in South Africa, Broekhuysen was influenced in part by the ancient rock paintings of the indigenous San Bushmen. Her work, like the binary code that serves as her brushstroke, is a constant interplay of contrasting contexts and evocative symbolism. Broekhuysen has exhibited work around the world, including in Abu Dhabi, Auckland, Berlin, Cape Town, Shanghai, and Quebec.

"Formally and conceptually, my work addresses rebirth, emergence, and decay. I am interested in that pull between being grounded and secure and having freedom and lightness, when does the security become suppression and when does the openness become dangerous?"
