This coming Friday, several galleries in Tribeca and Soho will be open late to celebrate our current exhibitions throughout the neighborhood. An interactive map of the participating galleries can be viewed at this link.
17 White Street, New York, NY 10013
The inaugural exhibition at Luhring Augustine Tribeca (17 White Street, New York, NY) will present the first U.S. solo show of the late London-based, Brazilian-born Lucia Nogueira (1950-1998). Over the course of her brief but remarkable career, the artist created a compelling multidisciplinary body of work. Primarily centered on her haunting and minimal sculptures and installations, her practice also incorporated drawing and video. Organized in collaboration with Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London, this exhibition will introduce American audiences to a seminal and under-recognized artist.

Dalton Paula: a kidnapper of souls
Alexander and Bonin is pleased to present Dalton Paula’s first solo exhibition in North America, a kidnapper of souls. Twenty-four portraits line the gallery. Portrayed on two-part canvases with blue-green backgrounds and gold-streaked hair, are historic Afro-Brazilian figures who have never been visually depicted during their lifetime or posthumously. As part of his research, Paula visited Quilombo Alto do Santana in Goias, near Goiâna, where he works and lives. There, Paula photographed residents of the quilombo and used these images as the basis for his portraits, where the subjects are illustrated in period clothes and hairstyles. In doing so, Paula constructs a counter-narrative that differs from the predominant representations of the black Brazilian population.

Renée Green, Excerpts
Bortolami Gallery is pleased to announce our first exhibition with Renée Green. Since the late 1980s, Green has explored the concept of color in myriad ways. Spanning the artist’s three decades of working with color’s polyvalent effects, the works in Excerpts manifest her open-ended questioning of invented yet established taxonomies, in order to play with and to displace designations that may seem to be known.
55 Walker Street New York NY 10013
Aki Sasamoto, Schematics
Bortolami is pleased to announce the opening of Schematics, the gallery’s second exhibition with New York-based performance artist Aki Sasamoto. Schematics presents an accumulation of works included in Sasamoto’s solo exhibitions at New York venues: The Kitchen, SculptureCenter, and JTT. Sasamoto draws diagrams as she performs, using them as visual aids to her storytelling. "Schematics" showcases these diagrams-turned-art objects to emphasize both the seriality and spontaneity of her Sasamoto's unique practice.
60 Lispenard Street, New York, NY 10013
Joan Snyder, The Summer Becomes a Room
Canada is pleased to present The Summer Becomes a Room, Joan Snyder’s first exhibition with the gallery. Joan Snyder first rose to prominence for her ‘stroke’ paintings, made in the late 1960’s and early 70’s during the male-dominated era of Minimalism and Color Field painting. These early experiments with mark-making and the grid were the first step in a career marked by wildly tactile paintings that are both formally rigorous and emotionally raw. The Summer Becomes a Room consists of a series of recent large-scale works, some diptychs, that reference fields and landscapes. They are expanses of bold color, punctuated by tender arrangements of symbols and text, collaged with burlap, silk, and organic matter like dried flowers, mud, and herbs. In these paintings, Snyder alludes to seasons and cycles–referencing music and poetry–and meditates on themes of trauma and love.
74 Franklin Street, New York, NY 10013
Will Ryman "Dinner III" and Daniel Rampulla "Wild Place"
"Dinner III" marks Will Ryman's first show in New York City in five years, featuring his most complex and ambitious sculptural work to date. The installation includes a nearly life-size sculptural tableau of figures gathered around a table in the midst of a meal. Ryman’s assemblage combines found and sculpted objects, all cast in stainless steel.
"Wild Place" is the inaugural PROJECTION exhibition, a new initiative in our downstairs space alongside our main gallery programming, highlighting diverse voices in intimate presentations. Daniel Rampulla's black and white portraits and landscape photographs excavate the queer subconscious to create spaces of healing and forgiveness. Photographing both figure and landscape, Rampulla captures moments of tenderness and tension.
48 Walker Street, New York, NY 10013
Trenton Doyle Hancock: Something American
Something American, a two-part exhibition of new work at our Tribeca and Lower East Side spaces. Over a career spanning nearly twenty-five years, Trenton Doyle Hancock has created a singular body of visual art that exuberantly subverts and synthesizes his omnivorous influences to invent a world entirely his own. This exhibition features new paintings that demonstrate the breadth and dexterity of Hancock’s practice: explorations of never before seen corners of the Moundverse and densely layered and collaged reexaminations of Hancock’s extraordinary iconography.
Denny Dimin Gallery
39 Lispenard Street, New York, NY 10013
Justine Hill: Touch
Justine Hill’s work explores the boundaries of abstract painting with her unique approach to form and mark making. The works in the exhibition are a continuation of what she has styled the “Cutouts” - paintings on shaped wood panels wrapped in canvas. The title of the exhibition, Touch, refers to the unquantifiable loss we have experienced in our socially distanced, remote lives over the past few months. Hill writes, “Touch is about standing in front of something or someone. It is about all that we learn by being in the same place, even when no one is speaking. It is about feeling the touch of the handmade. It is about everything that is lost in translation on a screen.”

In Situ: a changing exhibition
For the next three months we will make a fluid and changing installation of works chosen because we want to look at them, works that we want to see together. These past six months have been too long an interlude during which digital outreach has tried to substitute for the actual event and the interaction with art has almost entirely been filtered through unsatisfactory stand-ins for any real experience of it. We invite visitors to safely experience real art in a real space, to consider again art in person, 'in position.' Over the course of this changing exhibition, at any given time we will present works by many artists, the initial installation including: Silvia Bächli, Constantin Brancusi, Mary Corse, Jimmie Durham, Walker Evans, Donald Judd, Ellsworth Kelly, Wolfgang Laib, Sherrie Levine, Agnes Martin, Helen Mirra, Matt Mullican, Cady Noland, Sigmar Polke, Charlotte Posenenske, Medardo Rosso, Thomas Schütte, Richard Serra, Lucy Skaer, Myron Stout, Richard Tuttle, Richard Wentworth.

Hannah Beerman: Delicate Rubbernecking
Known for her distinctly punk and vibrant assemblage paintings, Beerman's process is heavily based in object. For Beerman, no material is discriminated against, therefore, every material becomes paint as all paint becomes material.
Anton Kern Gallery
91 Walker Street, New York, NY (corner of Walker and Lafayette Street)
"On the Walker Street vitrine of WINDOW are two “eccentric stretcher” paintings by Chris Martin. This body of work, all made in 2006, has never before been exhibited. The paintings are acrylic, flashe, and spray paint on canvas, stretched over these eccentric stretchers–the form of the stretcher dictating the structure of the painting. “They’re kind of savage,” Martin notes, with aggressively (and simultaneously joyful) bright paint and wild shapes. This group of paintings was an attempt to push and break through the formal parameters of painting. In a sense they are also related to a graffiti aesthetic–with the spray painted dots that punctuate the paintings making a clear reference and homage. The eccentric stretchers also harken back to the eccentric abstraction of the 70s–artists such as Ron Gorchov, John Torreano–kings of the scene who were the teachers of a young Martin. The painting on the right’s title is written on the lower left hand of the canvas, noting that it was dedicated to the memory of three men: Raul, Raymond, and Carlos. These were some of Martin’s most memorable assignments when he worked with HIV patients in Red Hook in the 90s. The painting’s display for the first time stirs fond recollections of their antics but also, with gravity, the indignities these strong men faced as the disease ravaged their bodies, as well as the sensitive nature of using their names on the work (a taboo at the time he knew them, as any revelation of an HIV diagnosis had the potential to ruin reputations and lives). On the Lafayette side of WINDOW is a neon light box painting, first displayed back in 2014 on the outside of the old 20th Street location during Martin’s inaugural exhibition with the gallery. The use of light boxes to display his paintings was inspired by Mexican devotional images, where icons and religious figures are placed in brightly lit displays. Here, one of Martin’s seven point structures is illuminated--a riff on early geometric modernism but with a contemporary electric pink color. We invite you to see these three works anytime, day or night, WINDOW is on view 24/7."
Andrew Kreps Gallery
22 Cortlandt Alley, New York, NY 10013
Kim Dingle, Restaurant Mandalas
Andrew Kreps Gallery presents an exhibition of works by the Los Angeles-based painter Kim Dingle, titled Restaurant Paintings. Dingle began her series of restaurant paintings in the mid-2000s when the artist opened and operated a full-service restaurant, “Fatty’s” in her Eagle Rock, Los Angeles studio. Conceived of nearly accidentally, beginning with Dingle and her partner making coffee for themselves, it quickly expanded to serve the neighborhood, with Dingle working as the “Director of Wine and Janitorials”. A parallel for the artist’s own life, these works show the overwhelming conditions that led the artist to close the restaurant, which ran for over a decade, after a “last supper”. Dingle’s restaurant mandala series, which is at the core of the forthcoming exhibition at the gallery, was started in 2008 in Dingle’s backroom studio. Dingle imposed the traditional, meditative form of the mandala, onto the restaurant floor plan, as an attempt to reclaim the repetitive nature of service as a therapeutic exercise. Revisited and completed this year, the resulting works blur the distinction between the role of a server and the role of the artist, while also utilizing the restaurant floor plan on abstract terms to explore color and form.

Chris Watts: When There Is No Sun
Chris Watts: When There is No Sun is the first solo exhibition in New York City by the New York based artist. The exhibition features new mixed media works that investigate and revise existing narratives, both personal and social, aiming to disrupt established perceptions so that new ones may emerge. The bodily is evoked through Watts’ use of diaphanous textiles, such as poly-chiffon and silk, which create semi-opaque surfaces that possess what the artist describes as “an embodied vulnerability.” Watts’ works question the way in which society thinks about the effects and materiality of racialized skin on display.
Nelson Morales: Musas Muxe/Muxe Muses
Nelson Morales: Musas Muxe/Muxe Muses is the first solo exhibition in New York City of the celebrated contemporary Mexican photographer’s work. Morales’ photography celebrates gender identity and fluidity in Mexican culture by creating vibrant and richly pigmented narratives within his imagery, providing a distinctive perspective on sexual diversity, gender expression, and the muxe tradition in Latin America. Morales is acclaimed for his Muxe series—images of the vibrant muxe culture of the artist’s native Oaxaca, crafting the narrative scenes of Muxes, a community who challenge almost every Western idea of gender identity and are recognized as a “third gender”, living outside the binary in Tehuantepec, in southern Mexico.
511 Canal Street, #200, New York, NY 10013
Lily Stockman: Seed, Stone, Mirror, Match
Lily Stockman creates her paintings flat on sawhorses and builds them up layer by layer, using various oils and thinning solvents to manipulate the opacity of each coat of paint. Many of her works feature symmetrical, voluptuous shapes that are drawn from nature and give hints to plants, birds, and places. Stockman’s use of color and shape draws on her lifelong affinity for horticulture, agriculture, and environmental studies.
120 Walker Street, New York NY 10013
Off Paradise is pleased to present “Ascensions,” a group exhibition curated by Natacha Polaert, featuring works by Gregor Hildebrandt, Gordon Matta-Clark, Mitchell Charbonneau, Alicja Kwade, Harry Gruyaert, Tobias Wong, Sarah Charlesworth, Jeppe Hein, James Nares, Jonathan Paul Gillette, Simone Gilges, and Glenn O’Brien. Approaching the first anniversary of Off Paradise, “a fictional place, right off Paradise, adjacent to it, but not exactly it,” I felt the urgent desire to assemble a group of some of my favorite artists to reflect a deep sense of hope and optimism. “Ascensions” invites the viewer through a sleepless night. An eerie, spectral Nastassja Kinski from Gregor Hildebrandt’s “So nah so weit” (So close, so far) appears to be floating through the skyline of downtown Manhattan. A reflection in a reflection, graceful and melancholic, imbuing her passage with a heightened sense of possibility. As the night ascends, the works are veiled in muted grays, shades of blacks. A single burst of color, something to rise towards, is visible from the entrance, but at a distance.
9 White Street, New York, NY 10013
William Scott: It's a Beautiful Day Outside
A self-taught artist from the Bay Area, William Scott creates work that imagines alternative realities grounded in a deep belief in the potential for positive human transformation. This exhibition- the artist's first solo presentation in New York since his 2009 show at White Columns- features recent drawing, painting, sculpture, and an original video work.
368 Broadway, #511, New York, NY 10013
Dana Lok: One Second Per Second
This series of paintings explores the visual possibilities and paradoxes tucked inside the metaphor “time takes up space.” The works picture events and processes as visceral, extended structures. Moments are sliced thick. They stick flush against one another. If you pried them apart, you’d see the gunk that binds causes to their effects. The past heaves over the present, puts its weight on the present. A flashbulb illuminates “now,” makes it vivid. It casts the past in shadow. The arena that holds these processes has its own weather, humidity and light. Time performs on a hot stage or waits on a plate.
Patrick Parrish Gallery
50 Lispenard Street, New York, NY 10013
Julian Watts: Homelife
Julian Watts's second solo exhibition at Patrick Parrish Gallery. Watts explores the idea of the home as a poetic, living landscape through an ecosystem of abstract biomorphic wood carvings ranging from intimate bowls and vessels to surreal furniture and large sculptures and paintings.
54 Franklin St, New York, NY 10013
Steve Mumford, “Drawings from America's Front Lines”
For many years Steve Mumford has been drawing current events on the ground, working from life, like the 'special artists' of the American Civil War, before cameras were fast enough to permit photojournalism. In the past Mumford made drawings in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo. This exhibition is local - with the artist working on location - it presents 60 “live” drawings from the last few months of pandemic and protests in the US, depicting the Covid-19 crisis in NYC, the Black Lives Matter protests in NYC and Portland, Oregon, and campaign rallies for Donald Trump in Portland, Maine and Fredricksburg, Virginia.
Nicola Verlato, “The Merging: beyond the end”
Nicola Verlato ( Verona-Italy, 1965), started experimenting with 3d modeling as part of his painting process around 1991 and still continues to work with those tools as a preparation for his paintings. Since the early 80's, when he saw the first computer generated sequences in movies such as Tron, he firmly believes that in order to get out of the limb of modern painting, it is mandatory to adopt the most advanced technologies about polygonal modeling in his working process. The concept that space is not given but is defined by the accumulation and progressive organization of geometrically constructed objects guides his painting process. This exhibition offers the philosophical implication of the huge shift in image creation we are witnessing for the last 50 years.

Fast & Present: New Work by Johnny Swing
The centerpiece of the exhibition is a monumental suite of furniture evoking the artist’s love of aquatic forms. Consisting of seven nesting zoomorphic works, Septem Maria (Seven Seas) has been executed in two unique versions by the artist and represents his most sublime sculptural creation to date. Johnny Swing states, “I wanted to surround and immerse people with a suite of furniture which provides a sensual, tactile experience, while providing collectors with an infinite array of arrangements based on these individually smaller works.”
