no box assembly

"No Box Assembly is a group of five young painters from around the country who converged in a painting studio in an old Lower East Side synaogue. The artists of No Box work for themselves, and present to each other. They have found that a group dynamic and common purpose allows each individual to push into his/her own process. Though working in the same space under similar conditions, each artist produces art that is largely directed by their own personal vision. This, in turn, lead to dynamic opportunities for group exhibition as well as a unique blend of influences and support for their individual projects."

No Box Assembly is proud to collaborate with Collective Hardware in their first group exhibition,

christopher o'riley

Pianist Christopher O'Riley will perform his transcriptions of the music of Radiohead and Dmitri Shostakovich Friday night at Miller Theatre. Artists Stephen Byram and Jonathon Rosen will provide live video accompaniment. Byram and Rosen "integrate individual torrents of imagery; they fuse abstract, figurative, graphic, and subjective art to draw inspiration from and provide commentary on the music as it is performed".

martin kippenberger

It's blockbuster time at the museums. The MoMA's contribution is a large-scale exhibition of the work of Martin Kippenberger. This well-received show "includes key selections and bodies of work from his entire career: paintings, sculpture, works on paper, installations, multiples, photographs, posters, announcement cards, books, and music. " Kippenberger might not be a household name, but he should be. And this will help.

jenny holzer

Protect Protect focuses on the work of Jenny Holzer since the 1990s. Her "pioneering approach to language as a carrier of content and her use of nontraditional media and public settings as vehicles for that content make her one of the most interesting and significant artists working today." This is truly a fine show put on by the Whitney.

clytie alexander

Clytie Alexander has a beautiful show at Betty Cuningham that should be experienced. Her subtle pieces work well with the space, and create an inviting, peaceful environment. Hers is a serene type of power.

rudolf stingel

Rudolf Stingel is one of the greatest living painters. In the past his work "has taken aim at the transcendental ambitions and metaphysical loftiness of various moments from the history of art." His new show at Paula Cooper furthers this by deepening "his exploration of portraiture to present a series of new paintings that constitute a kind of cultural self-portrait." Very timely.

Tehching Hsieh is everywhere these days. Which is a good thing. The MoMA's inaugural installation of performance pieces features the first of his five One Year Performances. For a nice history lesson read an interview he gave to the Brooklyn Rail in 2003.
