David Goldes Releases New Book

David Goldes will release his new monograph with Radius Books, Unpredictable Drawings, with text by Pavel S. Pyś. Unpredictable Drawings continues Goldes’s signature material explorations, in which he introduces electrical and chemical elements to drawings, which in turn create new, unexpected features. By electrifying, corroding, and reacting the surfaces of these works, Goldes creates a body of work that reflects the instability of the times in which they are made.

Meghann Riepenhoff in Collector Daily

Meghann Riepenhoff was reviewed by Loring Knoblaugh for Collector Daily. Knoblauch writes, "As the years pass and pictures pile up, it feels like Riepenhoff is wrestling with a partner who is unwilling to entirely give up her secrets; each project pries a few more clues and details loose, but the whole unruly spirit is still tantalizing elusive. Perhaps this what gives Riepenhoff’s best compositions their lasting interest – she’s captured a fleeting glimpse of something elemental and eternal, but never quite tamed the raw power that lies underneath."

Shikeith in Elephant Magazine

Shikeith is included in Elephant Magazine's photo feature Reframing Black Masculinity. Writer/researcher/curator Emmanuel Balogun writes, “Shikeith’s work investigates the experiences of Black men through concepts of psychic space. Throughout his work, the Black American psyche is expressed through states of meditation, prayer, and ecstasy, as images of the Black male body persist. O’ my body, make of me always a man who questions! features an anonymous man, drenched in sweat with his back arched, in a process of resurrection. The photographer positions Black male hands as a communal force of life and regeneration."

Newark Museum of Art Acquires Work by Shikeith

Three works by Shikeith have joined Newark Museum of Art's permanent collection. Each of the three works, O' my body, make of me always a man who questions!, Kris (in blue), and Kris (in ecstasy) further Shikeith’s exploration of Black spirituality and paths toward healing. They are representative of the artist's broader practice, which dives deep into experiences of ecstasy as it manifests in both corporeal and spiritual forms.

Hirshhorn Museum Acquires Work by Sarah Anne Johnson

Sarah Anne Johnson's monumental 6-channel video installation The Kitchen has joined the Hirshhorn Museum of Art's permanent collection. The work is inspired by the life of Johnson’s grandmother, who, suffering from post-partum depression, was subject to forced brainwashing experiments conducted by the Canadian government in the 1950s. The Kitchen follows the artist, dressed in 1950s-style clothing, performing domestic tasks facing backwards, a representation of the difficulties her grandmother faced following her treatment.

Alison Rossiter & Chris McCaw at Princeton University Art Museum

Work by Alison Rossiter and Chris McCaw was featured in Time's Relentless Melt at Princeton University Art Museum's gallery space Art on Hulfish. The exhibition explores the dual functionality of photography, a medium capable of at once freezing moments in time and reminding us of time’s endless march. The work of Alison Rossiter and Chris McCaw contribute eloquently to this exploration, each realizing the material relation of their photographic materials to the passage of time. For more information, please visit the museum website.

Pieter Hugo at Musei San Domenico

Work by Pieter Hugo was featured in Civilization: The Way We Live Now at Musei San Domenico in Forlì, Italy. The exhibition asked what it means to live in a globalized world, one where human experiences across the globe are increasingly the same. It brought together the work of photographers who investigate the phenomena we experience on a collective level, from our modes of communication, to the ways by which we sustain ourselves, to our methods of dealing with crisis.

RGB in Galerie Magazine

RGB was reviewed by Pilar Viladas for Galerie Magazine. The author writes, "The exhibition offers a variety of approaches, but with a common thread of color, texture, and pattern the compilation is both provocative and refreshing." To read the full article, please visit Galerie Magazine.

Natia Lemay at Yossi Milo Gallery

Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to present the work of New Haven-based, mixed-race, Afro-Indigenous painter Natia Lemay. In an exploration of identity, Lemay paints figures that flit between invisibility and prominence against their entirely black backgrounds. The works that result oscillate between representational portraits and minimal studies in black. The artist’s debut solo exhibition will take place at the gallery in the Spring of 2023. Lemay’s work will also be featured in the gallery’s booth at the upcoming edition of The Armory Show in September 2022.
