Undercurrent, 70 John Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

Greece in USA launches the second iteration of its program for the internationalization of Greek Culture in the USA. The group exhibition The Right to Breathe takes as a starting point the “shortness of breath” derived from the experience of political pressure, social injustice, and economic austerity, exploring its connection with poetics, live art, and embodied politics. The concerns driving the “I Can’t Breathe” debates around race, discrimination, and violence have been left unconfronted for far too long. At the…

Neil Winokur: Produce

September 11 - October 20
Janet Borden, Inc., 91 Water Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

Neil Winokur, who is widely known for his deadpan rendering of dogs, people, and pets, has turned his attention to fruits and vegetables. Begun during quarantine, these are luscious portraits of humble forms. Although free of irony, the images evince a playfulness as well. They are seductive without being sentimental, illustrative not metaphorical. The straightforward pose of the object against a brilliantly monochromatic color background is Winokur's signature style. Each print bursts with hyper-saturated color. Fennel fronds are gently articulated…

Main Window, One Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

Shimmers is a multidimensional environment created on site by Julien Gardair for Main Window. As one walks by the window, one discovers layered shapes of mesh which, as they interfere one with another, reveal volumes and subjects. The piece, made of a continuous roll of window screen, is cut freehand in space without removing any part of it. This sustainable system allows empty and filled spaces, figuration and abstraction to exist at the simultaneously, inviting the viewer to multiple interpretations.…

Her soft, brutal sculptures combine discarded fabric with industrial materials, often borrowing forms from mutilated fauna and flora in various states of decay, including tree stumps, cow carcasses, and birds of prey.
