Matthew Benedict
The Sea Cook
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
March 11, 2017 - April 22, 2017
On the lower level, a new body of work by Matthew Benedict will be on view. The exhibition takes its title from a new painting, The Sea Cook (2017), based on a historical photograph of the crew of the USS Monitor, an iron-hulled steamship built at Continental Iron Works in Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the Civil War. The exhibition will also include works on paper relating to the Monitor and other nautical scenes. Benedict paints in a graphic style reminiscent of early 20th century adventure story illustration and employs trompe-l’oeil techniques. He has lived and worked in Greenpoint for nearly thirty years and has created bodies of work based on great works of literature, the occult, and historical sources.

 
Carlos Bunga
Absence
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
March 11, 2017 - April 22, 2017
Central to Carlos Bunga’s exhibition is a site-specific installation that emerges from a dialogue with the gallery space and recalls a life-size architectural model. In his installations, Bunga not only encourages visitors to rethink their experience of space, but also evokes the transient and fragile nature of urban structures. Absence will also include works that make use of mass-produced materials such as cardboard, tissue, and house paint. Bringing to mind colorful interior walls, these works seemingly escape the traditional boundaries of painting, sculpture, and architecture. The exhibition will also include smaller sculptural works that similarly explore concepts of opposition central to Bunga’s practice such as packing and unpacking, internal and external space, permanence and transience.

 
Jorge Macchi and Edgardo Rudnitzky
From Here to Eternity
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
March 11, 2017 - April 22, 2017
From Here to Eternity (2013), a collaborative work by Jorge Macchi and Edgardo Rudnitzky, will be installed in the video gallery. In this two-channel video projection, Macchi interprets the title of the 1953 Hollywood classic “From Here to Eternity” literally and paradoxically: the projection is composed of two loops based on the few seconds that both the title of the film and the words “THE END” appear in the movie. As the two clips have slightly different lengths, they present an unsynchronized whole in which their soundtracks overlap into a chaotic sound mixture. With the help of computer software, musician Edgardo Rudnitzky creates a third audio channel in real time: the software takes musical notes from both original soundtracks and develops another sung by women’s voices.

The Woman Question: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka
24 West 57th Street
New York, NY 10019
March 14, 2017 - June 30, 2017
Around the turn of the 20th century, the traditional relationship between the sexes was challenged by a series of sweeping social, economic and philosophical changes. Vienna became ground zero for the exploration of human sexuality, a subject that gripped psychologists, scientists and writers, along with the public at large. This more forthright acknowledgment of male and female sexual desire sent thrills and chills through the Austrian art world, infusing the work of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka with a mix of terror and exhilaration. Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka each approached what was then commonly known as the “woman question” in slightly different, albeit overlapping, ways. Our current exhibition explores these differences and similarities, in the process providing new insights into early 20th-century gender relations and the origins of modern sexual identity. Based on a highly successful 2015-16 exhibition at Vienna’s Belvedere Museum, “THE WOMAN QUESTION” comprises 59 paintings, watercolors and drawings. Gustav Klimt, "Moving Water," 1898, oil on canvas. Private collection.

Thomas Witte
Vantage Point
521 West 26th Street
New York, NY 10001
March 23, 2017 - April 22, 2017
Davidson Contemporary presents Vantage Point, a solo exhibition of work by Thomas Witte. What does it mean to observe? When we are tourists, we take in the landscape, sights, or monument in front of us. We snap a few photos for posterity and, more often than not, seldom look at them again. But this desire to create and preserve memories drives us to travel, to witness and to participate, perpetually giving us new layers of experience that shape us. For Vantage Point, Thomas Witte uses images from found 35mm slides to create his hand-cut paper works. Witte has created two separate but connected sets of work, both of which play with our sense of perspective. In the Lookout set, Witte selected photographs that omit the actual sights, focusing instead on the people participating in the act of observation. In Protest, by focusing more on the protesters than the subject of the protest itself, Witte puts viewers in the position of sightseer or voyeur, bringing the act of protesting a historical significance that exists outside temporal and contextual constraints. Vantage Point considers the way in which we participate and observe. There are things that exist for the express purpose of observing – platforms equipped with telescopes and man-made scenic overlooks. Protests, on the other hand, create moments that either compel us to participate or relegate us to spectators. There is a connection between the act of viewing art and viewing life; the passive act of sightseeing versus the very active and sometimes perilous act of demonstrating. This juxtaposition presents a sublime discrepancy in the way in which we, as removed art-viewers, take meaning from the images. This is Witte’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. He lives and works in New Jersey.

Anne Ryan (1889 - 1954)
Collages
231 East 60th Street
New York, NY 10022
January 31, 2017 - April 22, 2017
ANNE RYAN belonged to the early generation of New York School Abstract Expressionist artists and is today considered perhaps the premier American collagist of the 20th century. Her abstract collages, comprised of paper and sometimes fabric and found materials, tend to fall somewhere in a spectrum between a so-called painterly or “expressionist” type and a more cold, geometric so-called “classical” style. These small but potent abstract pictures have been hailed as “exquisite” (Holland Cotter) for their intimate and formal elements and masterful command of abstraction. RYAN was born in Hoboken, NJ, and educated in a convent school, which she left to marry a lawyer with whom she had three children. RYAN did not begin her artistic career until the second half of her life, initially pursuing writing as her first creative foray. After publishing a volume of poems in 1925 and a novel in 1926, RYAN moved to Majorca in 1931; she returned to New York in 1933. It was in New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood where RYAN encountered fellow writers, artists, and intellectuals, including Hans Hofmann, who encouraged her to begin painting. She joined the printmaking workshop of Stanley William Hayter, Atelier XVII, in 1941 and had a solo exhibition of her paintings at the Pinacotheca that same year. She continued to make and exhibit her paintings until, during a visit to the Rose Fried Gallery in 1948, RYAN encountered the collages of Kurt Schwitters. Upon seeing these works, she immediately began to make abstract collages. By the early 1950s she was exhibiting at the celebrated Betty Parsons Gallery and her work was included in the Museum of Modern Art “American Painting and Sculpture” in 1951. All her collages were created during the period of six years preceding her death in 1954 at age 65. Her work has been exhibited at Betty Parsons Gallery, Kraushaar Galleries, Marlborough Gallery, and Washburn Gallery, and in museums including the Brooklyn Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Yale University Art Gallery, among others. The exhibition will consist of twenty collages dating from the 1948 through 1954.

Watercolors: Five Decades
600 Washington Square South
Philadelphia, PA 19106
April 7, 2017 - May 20, 2017
This small survey of watercolors by the renowned painter, Elizabeth Osborne acknowledges her lifelong focus and devotion to the medium. For an artist that has long worked alternatively in either watercolor or oil on canvas, the subtleties of watercolor on paper has been an immensely vibrant tool in her studio practice. Osborne’s definitive handling of color and light—strengths she has developed from the watercolor medium has often been remarked upon by curators and critics.

 
Rob Wynne
Invisible Reality
600 Washington Square South
Philadelphia, PA 19106
April 7, 2017 - May 20, 2017
For his fourth solo show at the gallery, Wynne will exhibit work across a range of mediums, including large-scale poured and mirrored glass wall abstractions, canvases of baroque imagery embroidered with words, photographic scenes of a magician’s act, and an abundance of glitter. Seduced by dynamic and mesmerizing [continued on reverse] Rob Wynne, Silver Escape, 2017, poured and mirrored glass, 28 x 24 inches elements, the viewer enters his world and sees oneself reflected in it, through metallic finishes and mirrored glass sculpture. Recurrent in Wynne’s work is this notion of self-awareness— both physically thorough the viewer’s visual reflection as well as psychologically on a deeper, introspective level.

Hung Liu: Promised Land
1275 Minnesota Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
April 29, 2017 - June 3, 2017
Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present Hung Liu: Promised Land, an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper based on photographs by American photographer Dorothea Lange. Hung Liu is known for her use of Chinese historical photographs, and Promised Land continues this exploration of history, now focused on America’s Great Depression and Dust Bowl era. While Dorothea Lange’s photographs have become almost synonymous with this era (with iconic images like Migrant Mother, 1936 and White Angel Breadline, 1933) Hung Liu’s paintings, taken in conversation with the rest of her oeuvre, ask the viewer to consider these events in the larger sweep of the human condition. Liu reminds us that forced migration, economic devastation, poverty and hunger are not unique to country, race or culture, and her works at once acknowledge these tragedies, while celebrating the resilience of the human spirit.

 
Robert Minervini
Robert Minervini: Improvised Gardens
1275 Minnesota Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
March 18, 2017 - April 22, 2017
Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present our second solo exhibition of Oakland based artist Robert Minervini. In these new paintings, Minervini continues his investigation of human’s complex relationship to both the natural and constructed environment, looking at our dual and conflicting desires to both tame and live harmoniously with nature. Inspired by walks around San Francisco neighborhoods, many of these works focus on small improvised garden spaces, exploring how space is manipulated in densely populated urban areas with an effort to bring in the natural world, further underscored by the inclusion of three large planter box sculptures on the gallery floor.

Jutta Haeckel
Future Echo
260 Utah Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
March 11, 2017 - April 29, 2017
Düsseldorf-based painter Jutta Haeckel has accomplished a rare feat in the crowded arena of contemporary art — she has developed a style of painting that is unique. In her fifth exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery, she uses her technical breakthrough to express the uncertainty of our time. Haeckel creates multiple viewpoints within a single painting by treating three-dimensional representation within a picture plane as fluid. Her technique reverses traditional processes of depiction: instead of drawing a line to define the outline of a form, she delineates a shape by painting the negative space around it, inverting one’s perception of foreground and background. The effect is, as erstwhile critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, Kenneth Baker, described it, a “dreamlike quality of one image or plane of awareness bleeding or burning through another, a sensation available only to memory, seldom approximated in any pictorial art.” Haeckel believes we exist in a time of increasingly rapid change and instability. Populations are finding conventional patterns, structures, codes and rules no longer reliable. She uses ambiguity — of space, perspective and perception — as a metaphor to describe that flux, and the necessity to think elastically. Jutta Haeckel was born in Hannover, Germany in 1972. She studied at Hochschule für Künste, Bremen, Germany and Goldsmiths College, London, England. She has exhibited widely in Germany, including recent exhibitions at the Kunsthalle in Recklinghausen and at Schloss Detmold. This is her fifth solo exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery.

 
Marco Maggi
Global Myopia (Language in Residence)
260 Utah Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
March 11, 2017 - April 29, 2017
Hosfelt Gallery is pleased to present the West Coast premiere of Marco Maggi’s first video installation. The two-channel, 30-minute video installation draws its content from Maggi’s 2015 Venice Biennale exhibition in the Uruguay pavilion. Maggi’s video venerates and satirizes the complexities and paradoxes of the experience of contemporary art from the viewpoint of a spectator observing spectators. In all of Maggi’s work, the necessity of slowing down, moving in closely, and examining carefully are requisites to encountering the intricacies of his techniques and ideas. In Maggi’s view, myopia has a positive connotation: narrowing one’s vision to focus, pay attention, and contemplate. It becomes an act of rebellion in a world of incessant distraction, where the speed and quantity of information is instantaneous, omnipresent, and overwhelming. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1957, Marco Maggi now divides his time between New Paltz, NY and Montevideo. He was chosen to represent Uruguay in the 2015 Venice Biennale. His work is in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; as well as in the Cisneros Collection, New York and the Daros Foundation, Zurich.
