Charles Moffett has opened its doors to Playtime, Puerto Rican-born, New York-based artist Jean-Pierre Villafañe’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition comprises a new body of work, including oil paintings on linen, works on paper, and an architectural diorama, all of which Villafañe created during the esteemed Silver Art Projects residency that provides artists free studio space on the 28th floor of 4 World Trade Center. Ever the keen observer of his environment, Villafañe uses this insight into the Manhattan office to paint a narrative of the intricate dance between concealed individual desires and well-rehearsed corporate responsibility. Throughout this exhibition, Villafañe explores themes of power and illusion, fantasy and deviance, submission and irreverence, and sexuality and desire — all played out in an imagined yet eerily familiar “stage set” of the corporate office and performed by a troupe of traditional, white-collar workers.

Charles Moffett is pleased to present Vanitas, New York-based artist C’naan Hamburger’s first ever solo exhibition. Building on the artist’s Fall 2023 Hunter College MFA Thesis Exhibition, the show includes seven new and recent paintings rendered in the artist’s distinctive use of egg tempera on wood panel, alongside one sculpture of porcelain adorned with offset woodcut prints and drawings. Painted in minute brushstrokes of remarkable precision, Hamburger’s compositions leverage the ancient technique of egg tempera and the traditional genre of landscape painting to create contemporary vanitas pictures, pictures which grapple with the experience of urban decay, repair, and further decay.

Asya Geisberg Gallery is proud to open the inaugural exhibition at our new Tribeca location at 45 White Street with Czech artist Jakub Tomáš, his first US solo exhibition, on March 8th. Tomáš situates his exuberant painting in sculpture and collage, using cardboard models and theatrical lighting imbued with his study of theatrical scenic design to generate enigmatic or absurdist scenes. The resulting flattened schematic faces are painted within illusively familiar environments, with a surprisingly friendly robot nearby.

Charles Moffett is pleased to present What I was for what I am becoming, British artist Andy Holden’s first solo exhibition in the U.S. The artist, who works across sculpture, film, painting, installation and music, is known for his intensely personal, eclectic work, often involving cartoon representations of himself and an oscillation between irony and sincerity. Deftly deploying a powerful vulnerability, Holden’s work takes these idiosyncratic starting points to reach towards larger abstract philosophical questions on the nature of memory and our universal striving to understand the visible and invisible structures that shape our world. A focused survey spanning both of Charles Moffett’s Tribeca galleries, the show will provide an entry into the artist’s thinking and the philosophy underpinning much of his work over the past twenty years.

By nature we’re presented with a never-ending stream of problems and tasks to solve. Somehow, each question and hurdle we successfully manage jauntily slides into the next decision to be made. It’s an infinite chain reaction that likely keeps us sharp, and it inherently becomes intuitive over time– What do I want for breakfast? What time is it?

‘Sheida Soleimani: Birds of Passage’ Will be Denny Gallery’s Final Exhibition

 

 

 

  • After over one-hundred exhibitions in three gallery spaces on two continents over ten-years, Denny Gallery will close its doors on October 7th, 2023, at the conclusion of Sheida Soleimani: Birds of Passage. We look forward to hearing about future endeavors and collaborations.

Denny Gallery is pleased to present Sheida Soleimani’s Birds of Passage from September 5 to October 7, 2023. In the newest installation of her series Ghostwriter, which opened at Providence College Galleries and Edel Assanti in London in 2022–23, and is currently on view at MFA Boston, Soleimani “ghostwrites” her parents’ lives: as pro-democratic dissidents targeted by the totalitarian regime in Iran after ’79; and as stateless refugees forced to seek asylum across Europe and in pre- and post-9/11 America. In these photographic assemblages, Soleimani creates palimpsests of memories as a way to reckon with the narratives that she herself has constructed throughout her life from her parents’ stories, drawings, notes, and artifacts of the seismic events that continue to shape their lives.

Alison Elizabeth Taylor: These Days is a must-see exhibition before it closes on June 24th. Even our closeup images don’t due justice to her intricate inlaid-wood and painted collages.

Jane Lombard Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural Tribeca exhibition, The Nightmare It Was, a new series of works by Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi. The 2020 presidential campaign has proven itself to be an unpredictable landscape, as political, cultural and economic gaps, interwoven with tensions from the COVID-19 pandemic, have carved divisions between the American people. Drawing on US-centric political subjects, from life and the media, Perjovchi’s exhibition investigates challenging discussions surrounding tensions between the two American parties and how fact can so easily be obscured into fiction. The Nightmare It Was is on view from November 21 – December 19, 2020.
