MINUS SPACE is delighted to present Subvert City, a group exhibition conceived by gallery artist Vincent Como. The exhibition brings together five artists of several generations –- John Beech, Sharon Brant, Vincent Como, Michelle Magot, and Lael Marshall -– who are engaged in varied and distinct forms of painterly heresy. The artists presented in Subvert City honor the modern painting canon by undermining, oversaturating, or inverting it. Employing an apophatic approach to art making, the works by these artists range from the visceral…

GALLERY I A.I.R. Gallery is please to present Jinx, a new series of paintings by New York Artist member Jane Swavely. Combinations of green, silver, purple and blue, demarcated bands of color, read as abstracted signs that reference an imagined, alien, future landscape, scenes from a forlorn unlocated present after an apocalyptic moment. These images are constructed through energetic brushstrokes and abrasions, interweaved with the search of light from within color. Mining the history of abstraction, Swavely has produced hidden…

School of Pain

November 16, 2018 - January 26, 2019
Art in General, 145 Plymouth Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

The exhibition School of Pain draws on the work of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and Marquis de Sade, the first two thinkers of economies of desire. Sade with his ironic demonstrations may be seen as a predecessor to the attitudes of twentieth century modern and conceptual art. The libidinal economy, unleashed by modern reason, turned out to easily adopt such subversions in the constant mutations of advanced capitalism. The originally subversive imagery of Sade’s mechanised, accelerating and coldly executed desire therefore turned out…

Empathy

In an increasingly polarized political climate, empathy has proven to be a challenging emotion to conjure for many Americans. Both the public and its leaders seem to show little interest in understanding the viewpoints and experiences of others across the divide. The disruptive rhetoric of the current administration, and of media pundits, has only exacerbated the disjuncture in this country. This exhibition features artists who reveal a capacity for empathy, a willingness to reflect on another's point of view or…
