The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) is proud to partner with MINUS SPACE for this brief presentation of a selection of abstract art from Latin America. The CPPC is a 'museum without walls', a collection dedicated to generating thought and knowledge about the material culture and heritage of Latin America. As such, the collection travels extensively around the world, and also sponsors an active publication and research program.
Abstraction, as a language, remains linked to the high modernism left behind in its original form somewhere in the last century. It is with the comic actors' absurdist sense of repetition that abstraction reappears in unlikely places.
School of Visual Arts presents “Primary Sources: Documenting SVA and the New York Art World, 1966 – 1985,” a survey of the myriad new ways of making and experiencing art that found a home at the College over two decades. The exhibition brings together publications, posters and press materials, artist correspondence, installation plans and photographs, and other rarely seen documents.

Suite 217 is pleased to announce a group exhibition featuring works by Linda Francis, John O’Connor, and Ken Weathersby.
By the late 1970s, the term "sculpture" had come to include all manner of events (actions and performances), materials (plastics, resins, rubbers, etc.), media (photography, film, video and electronics) and modes of presentation (site-specific installations, street works, documentation, etc.). "Sculpture" as a term had been transformed into the catchall and as a discipline it no longer had an identity of its own.

Ventana 244 is pleased to present BANNED IN D.C., organized by Mark Dagley. This exhibition includes the work of twenty-two artists whose connections with the Washington D.C./Baltimore art scene are multifaceted.
Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present Ted Stamm: Paintings, a survey of works from 1973 to 1981 by the late New York City-based painter. This is the second exhibition of the artist’s work at the gallery. Prior to Stamm’s unexpected death in 1984 at the age of 40, the artist created a substantial mature body of work that was at once responsive to the past, reflective of his time, and telling of the future. Stamm’s practice was dedicated to complicating a Minimalist vocabulary with elongations suggestive of speed and the appearances of movement.

This winter Brooklyn painter and writer Stephen Maine sat down with artist Linda Francis to discuss her involvement in the fields of new music and performance within the greater context of her painting practice.
The present exhibition includes Standard paintings from the mid-1990s and Portrait(s) of a Standard from 2000, the latter, large-format silkscreens depicting the Standard(s) at an angle. Both the paintings and prints are installed on wooden blocks.
Dekkenga works out the compositions of her paintings in Adobe Illustrator. After applying an impasto underpainting, she uses herself as printer to transfer the composition to the painting surface. The procedure produces a thing that levels action and stops movement, making it impossible to retrace a series of painterly moves.

The first solo exhibition in a New York museum by the globally renowned contemporary artist El Anatsui, this show will feature over 30 works in metal and wood that transform appropriated objects into site-specific sculptures. Anatsui converts found materials into a new type of media that lies between sculpture and painting, combining aesthetic traditions from his birth country, Ghana; his home in Nsukka, Nigeria; and the global history of abstraction.
La invención concreta [Concrete Invention] traces the development of geometric abstraction in Latin America from the 1930s to the 1970s.
A solo exhibition by New York-based painter Winston Roeth.
We are pleased to be showing a selection of eight new paintings by New York artist John Zinsser. Zinsser works with an organic version of the grid, pulling exaggerated impastos off of flat grounds. He extends the physical range of traditional oil and canvas with spray enamels and resin additives to enable pronounced juxtapositions of figure and ground.
Sprecher’s paintings combine disparate and conflicting visual imagery from a variety of sources: quilts, children’s drawings, signage, gemstones (to name but a few). A wide range of patterns, color and texture come together into elemental, fluid shapes.
A retrospective exhibition of NYC-based color painter Sanford Wurmfeld (b. 1942 in Bronx, NY).
Though the Swiss-born Rudolf de Crignis (1948–2006) suffered an untimely death at the age of fifty-eight, the artist left behind a large and magnificent body of work, including a vast collection of the meditative paintings for which he is renowned.
Since the dawning of Modernity painting and the plastic arts have moved farther and farther away from the blatant lies perpetuated through the fallacy of caricature and representational imagery conjured from the world around us.

Quaytman’s practice is to create installations of painted panels termed ‘chapters.’ The ongoing chapters, begun in 2001, explore formalist and conceptual variations of ideas about painting, as well as the poetic and grammatical possibilities of photography-based imagery.
