Reginald Sylvester II: New Paintings

March 3 – March 29, 2020
James Fuentes, New York

James Fuentes is pleased to present a solo presentation of new works by Reginald Sylvester II. Motivated by a drive to dismantle and rebuild, over the past year and a half Sylvester II has been occupied by a transition into abstract painting, evolving from his figurative works that came before. Through this process, Sylvester II spent time traveling to Bali, Japan, and then Mexico City, where he has kept a studio since. The qualities of music and light in this space have had a profound effect on his work, resulting in his series of “light paintings.”

Artist Reginald Sylvester II Reflects on the Evolving Meaning of Space

“The need for natural light… there’s something about its play of outdoor energy being reflected in indoor spaces that moves me. That, in turn, can allow me to live at my best for the time being. Living here in Mexico City has definitely exorcised my use and relation to color within my work. It has also given me a taste of what life could be like when a bit more detached. This has been extremely helpful for my thoughts. This change of cultural and historical landscape has furthered my awareness and the importance of heritage. A people and their collectiveness and how they deal with each other — you get a pretty good sense of that here. By not having much, you could still lead a life just as fruitful and purposeful than the next. That principal in turn aligns with how I want to treat space: not having much yet still exuding extreme amounts of feeling, presence and purpose.”

Saturday, February 22, 2020, 12:30pm
Maximillian William, London

Maximillian William will be hosting a conversation between Magda Skupinska and Lucia Pietroiusti, curator of General Ecology at the Serpentine Galleries. Recently, Pietroiusti curated Sun & Sea (Marina) for the Lithuanian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale, which was awarded the Golden Lion for Best National Participation. Their talk will coincide with Skupinska’s current solo exhibition, Layú. Extending Skupinska’s investigation of the natural world and its phenomena, Layú presents a series of works created with organic materials, such as ground corn for the pigments of her paints in its four original colours (white, yellow, red and blue). For the basis of her canvases, palm fibres were woven by women from the Zapotec community in Santo Domingo Albarradas – a traditional craft passed down from generations, solely among women. This technique is not only a collective activity; it is organic, meticulous and closely tied to nature – all expressions that point to Skupinska’s oeuvre. The exhibition will remain on view through 19 March. To attend this free event please RSVP to [email protected] Space is limited.

Xenia: Crossroads in Portrait Painting

11 January – 15 February 2020
Marianne Boesky, New York

Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to present Xenia: Crossroads in Portrait Painting, an exhibition that explores the resurgence of portraiture as an incisive platform through which to consider the nature and meaning of identity. As our globalized society becomes increasingly marked by emigration, resettlement, and technological interconnectedness, so too have notions of the self become exponentially fractured and complex. Through the work of seventeen artists, Xenia: Crossroads in Portrait Painting captures the ways in which artists are leveraging the power of the portrait to express these intricacies, exposing the relationship between identity, place, and shifting social norms. The exhibition will be on view from January 11 through February 15, 2020, across both of Marianne Boesky Gallery’s Chelsea locations at 507 and 509 West 24th Street.

Role Play

14 January 2019
Maximillian William, London
7:00 – 8:00pm

Maximillian William is delighted to be hosting a conversation between artist, Somaya Critchlow, and author and curator, Amanda Renshaw. The talk will include ideas conceived for Role Play, as well as the continued relevance and influence Philip Guston has on younger generations of artists working today. Role Play investigated the work of Philip Guston alongside contemporary artists Somaya Critchlow and Lenz Geerk who take on a performative and theatrical role in the subject matter of their paintings. The exhibition expanded on the notions of representational vocabularies of identities and the limitation of how perception is evoked. By subtly implicating themselves in their subjects through the use of “props” and dramatic poses, these artists stimulate a comically morbid storyline imbued with methods of masquerade and role-play leaving the viewer implicated in their narrative.

Partnership with Samsung

As part of Samsung’s effort to reach young creatives in the US and Asia, 27-year-old multidisciplinary artist Coco Capitán was commissioned by Hypebeast to develop a branded content campaign and 360º activation showcasing the brand’s newest tech products as creative tools for young artists. Merging art form and brand story, the partnership created a rich consumer experience that reflects today’s omnichannel and multi-touchpoint media landscape.

Capitán’s collaboration with Samsung reimagined the conventional brand-artist partnership and in-store shopping experience, sourcing inspiration from the artist’s visit to New York and two-week residency in Japan to create a series of aspirational films following her on her exploration of the magnificent cities through an artist’s eyes with Samsung technology in hand.

Chairs Beyond Right & Wrong

10 September – 19 October 2019
R & Company, New York

This September, R & Company presents “Chairs Beyond Right & Wrong,” an exhibition curated by Raquel Cayre to re-think the chair and its corresponding forms of use and design. Featuring nearly 50 international artists and designers, the exhibition surveys the chair as a formal object, a product, a structure, a symbol and a material. Participants are invited to explore how these ideas contribute to an expanded notion of the chair as an archetype for creative work, while challenging the categorical divisions that extend between art and design. Some works were newly-produced for the exhibition, while others were curated specifically for their ability to contour away from pre-existing notions of form and function.

They Gaze

James Fuentes, New York

James Fuentes is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition, They Gaze. “What happens when the gaze isn’t the omnipotent gaze of the artist or anonymous viewer—usually male—but the subject of the painting itself? What happens when the painting gazes back and questions its audience? If the gaze emanates from a position of alterity and not authority, is the viewer more or less shaken?”

If You’ve Seen It All, Close Your Eyes

25 June 2019
Chose Commune
6:00 – 8:00pm

“If You’ve Seen It All, Close Your Eyes” presents extracts from a decade of artist Coco Capitán’s handwritten notebooks. Coco Capitán has always scribbled down her thoughts ‘everywhere, all the time’, often on scraps of paper that have filled notebook after notebook. From her first day in London in 2010 until now, and as she travels the world on photography assignments, Coco Capitán’s writings grant insight into her free and instinctive creative process. Playful aphorisms and short poems address an array of issues with hints of humour and irony. She combines the serious with the mundane as she shares in her first text-based book social, metaphorical or sentimental moments with her witty tone and distinctive hand.

The food menu, designed and cooked by Neto dos Santos, will be inspired by her interest in sustainable food practices such as preservation and fermentation.

Busy Living: Everything with Everyone Everywhere All of the Time

March 2019
Loose Joints

Busy Living accompanies Spanish artist Coco Capitán’s first major museum exhibition in Europe, a comprehensive survey of the artists’ last six years of image-making, including an essay by curator Simon Baker and texts throughout in English and French.

Despite Capitán’s young age, Busy Living contains a kaleidoscope of styles, with openness and freedom beyond her years. Ranging from playful setups pushing against the conventions of fashion and commercial photography, through to statuesque studies of Olympic swimmers and personal memoirs told through trips across America and China, Busy Living shows Capitán doing exactly what her title proposes: experiencing, absorbing, and reflecting a fast-paced modern world.

Busy Living: Everything with Everyone Everywhere All of the Time

6 March – 26 May, 2019
Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris

“The title of the show is Busy living everything with everyone, everywhere, all of the time. It’s a long title [laughs] that reflects the speed of how we all live right now – this need of wanting to achieve everything in the matter of a single second. But it’s also about an energy for life as well, especially mine. I want to see everything in the world and I want to do it now. It’s just about the possibilities to really dedicating things, the time they need and also being very enthusiastic and wanting to achieve a lot, a lot in a little time. I don’t deal with it really well. I feel I am a bit overwhelmed with my own time, in the sense that I would like to have more time to enjoy things, be free, to enjoy everything possible, all sorts of possibilities and combinations to live this life. I guess that’s why I chose that title because I do feel a little bit trapped.”

Time Never Mattered

17 November – 29 December 2018
Efrain Lopez Gallery, Chicago

Time never mattered evokes the immersive reverie an artist can attain through drawing and painting, and the imagistic world-building these processes advance. In a new series of miniature paintings (all works 2018) Somaya Critchlow presents heroines who are themselves unmoored in time and space, emerging starkly against backdrops of thinned oils evocative of the atmospheric monochromatic backgrounds found in early modern European portrait miniatures.

Is It Tomorrow Yet?

02 August 2018 – 27 January 2019
Daelim Museum, Seoul, South Korea

Presented for the first time in Asia, the exhibition is essentially an all-encompassing window into the artist’s unique perspective on the world, with the inclusion of 150 works, spanning across different media, including photography, painting, handwriting, video and installation.

Combining intimacy and playfulness with subtle social critique, as well as probing questions concerned with existing values and hierarchies, Capitán provides her contemporary interpretation of pop art to imagination-based paintings and handwriting works that encapsulate her mixed emotions in a witty manner. Her thoughts about the present and anxiety about the future are also explored, as her works seek to provide those struggling with uncertainties in life with an opportunity to feel a touch of empathy.

Downsizing (Every Little Helps)

21 May – 27 May, 2018
Cavespace, London

In the film Downsizing, because of a crisis in over-population and of global warming, it is suggested that in order to save the world’s resources everyone should be shrunk so that they are only 12 cm tall. In a similar way, because of the cost of putting on an exhibition, in order to show their work together the artists in this show have been given the challenge of shrinking their work so that it fits into a small space. Big ideas have been transformed into tiny works of art and we invite you come and see this collection of pint-sized, pocket paintings, drawings and prints, born out of necessity but no less profound or beautiful for it.

Adventitious Encounters

9 March – 22 March, 2018
Open Space Contemporary, London

What is the relationship between nature and humans? According to Félix Guattari’s Chaosmosis, “geopolitical configurations are changing at a great pace, while the Universes of technoscience, biology, computer technology, telematics and the media further destabilise our mental coordinates on a daily basis”. Humans have crossed a curious path, which brought them to an objectification of nature with a mechanism of mutual dependence on it. A circular movement, in which the subject of the research is also its object. However, despite being represented by the humankind, this nature cannot be uncontaminated, nor has it ever been.

The exhibition was curated by Huma Kabakcı and Anna Skladmann. It will explore our sensitive possibilities in relation to their context, examining history and the vision of William Whiteleys himself, who founded the first lucky department store in London and desired a space under the sky that would be suitable for botanics.

Punch

Jeffrey Deitch, New York

Punch focuses on artists of Nina Chanel Abney’s generation whose work raises compelling questions about the blurred lines of art today: Where do we draw the line between culture and subculture, figuration and abstraction, and the physical and the digital?

Many of these artists grew up in the digital age, seeing first-hand how multiple streams of information from different media can penetrate consciousness. These image streams create a common language for artists to examine and digest how developments in society and culture have altered our perception of contemporary life.

Photographing is an exercise that links two ends: the photographer and the subject being photographed, explored. A photograph speaks both about the photographer and the sitter. When I say ‘middle point’ I refer to that space that appears when you start looking at something different to your everyday life.”

The Rise and Fall of a People

16 March 2017 – 01 April 2017
Fondazione Stelline, Milan, Italy

Characterized by a rich and varied pictorial language, Sylvester’s paintings exist in a place in between abstraction and figuration, where instinctive gestures are translated into immediate and spiritually charged communicative forms. The body of work prepared for the exhibition at Fondazione Stelline captures a particularly important moment in the artist’s career. The introspective view of Sylvester’s early works is gradually evolving into a study on the outside world, initiating a series of new reflections on how the personal sphere can interact with the collective body. Primarily focused on portraiture, these new works touch on Biblical themes to address the critical times Western society is currently facing, as the title ‘The Rise and Fall of a People’ testifies.

The theatrical nature of painting was heightened by the work of Philip Guston, who saw himself as a movie director and actively examined this discourse, still prevalent in today’s world. Whether wrestling with the history of figuration, resuscitating historical trends or discomforting their ideas, several contemporary artists have turned to the practice to investigate issues of power, greed, identity and frustration when the boundaries between real and assumed identities are becoming more faint. The exhibition, which ran from November 20, 2019 – January 24, 2020, was curated by Charlotte Eytan.⁣

‘The installation is inspired by ‘The Three Sisters’ - an indigenous planting technique that tells the story of the beneficial and inseparable relationship of the three most important food sources in Mesoamerican cultures – corn, bean and squash. The fibres strangely depict human hair and have been infused with pigments and oils of bean, squash, and corn. The arrangement and structure being held together like three heads, recalls the complemented nature of these three crops. Forming a distinct companionship, the installation expands on the notion of co-dependency and togetherness between humans and nature’⁣
