Allison Schulnik Solo Exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum

The gallery is very proud to announce a solo exhibition by Allison Schulnik at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (CT) as part of the institution’s MATRIX series. Following her solo exhibition at ZieherSmith (NY) – -which will be on view January 9 – February 22, 2014 — MATRIX 168 will feature a selection of Schulnik’s paintings, but will primarily center on the premiere of “Eager” (2013), a new stop-motion, clay animated video by the artist that has been in the making for nearly a year.

Schulnik trained under legendary animator Jules Engel, contributor to Disney classics Fantasia (1940) and Bambi (1942), and founding director of the Experimental Animation Program at California Institute of the Arts (Cal Arts). Her videos directly relate to the subject matter, color palette, and techniques seen in her paintings and sculptures. With this in mind, her work will perfectly compliment the purpose of the MATRIX series, which calls into question preconceptions about art and increases understanding of its possibilities.

We congratulate Allison on another incredible solo museum exhibition.

Kris Kuksi Unveils New Work in New York

The gallery is pleased to announce Kris Kuksi‘s fourth New York solo exhibition with Joshua Liner Gallery. Opening on Thursday, November 21, “Revival” will feature several of the artist’s elaborate and sculptural assemblage pieces. Says the gallery:

“When encountering Kuksi’s work from a distance, these ornate sculptures resemble something of the Belle Époque—or certainly representative of that period’s ethos. A cursory glance gives the impression of decorative frills and ornamental beauty. At times, the central figure appears serene, omnipresent. However, upon closer inspection, the sculptures reveal a dark underbelly. Rage, conflict, tragedy, and mournfulness are prevalent in the dialogue among the smaller, less dominant figures.”

For more information, visit the gallery’s exhibition page. The show will remain on view until January 18th, 2014.


Clayton Brothers in Italy

“I’m Ok” – a solo exhibition of new work by gallery artist duo, Clayton Brotherswill open at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Milan on November 21, 2013.

Says the gallery, “‘I’m Ok’ includes about 30 new works of painting, drawing, and sculpture, specifically made for this show. All works focus on analysis of the relationship between the work and the observer, which is one of the central themes of their research, defined as a sort of ‘abstract narrative’ constructed by reworking characters, situations, and circumstances gleaned from everyday experiences.”

The exhibition will remain on view through February 1, 2014.
