Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

The works that comprise Freehold are inspired by the artist’s research and writing about Forest City, a tax free, man-made island in Johor, Malaysia, located along the Singapore Strait and adjacent to the Strait of Malacca–-one of the busiest trade conduits in the world.

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…

Evan Paul English: Inexterior (Viewfound)

July 22 - September 16
Main Window, One Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

A three-dimensional layered painting installation by interdisciplinary artist Evan Paul English, who currently works and resides in Brooklyn. His current series of paintings, titled “Viewfound,” employs the use of vintage American floral textiles. Finding compositions within the fabrics and enlarging them to various size paintings, he integrates elements of figuration and self-portraiture. Through layering, distortion, enlargement, visual and spatial immersion, a new experience with a familiar motif arises, making space for contemplation and revelation.
