Ali Smith Now Represented in Miami

The gallery is pleased to announce that gallery artist Ali Smith is now also represented by Mindy Solomon Gallery in Miami, FL. Scheduled to have a solo exhibition with Solomon in 2015, Smith will also included in several major international art fairs in the near future.

Furthermore, the artist has work included in the traveling exhibition, “Art for Art’s Sake,” a survey of the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation Collection currently on view at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ Barrick Museum. The show was recently reviewed by the Las Vegas Weekly, which declared:

“A particularly amazing scene unfolded this week at UNLV’s Barrick Museum, where noted art conservator and curator Billie Milam Weisman worked alongside Jerry Schefcik and Aurore Giguet and an assortment of handlers to remove a giant, vigorous and densely textured abstract painting by Ali Smith. Titled “Half-Life,” the 2007 work by the Southern California artist is, much like every other piece that arrived Monday at the Barrick, a beautifully constructed, dynamic work that would pounce on anyone walking past.” – Kristen Peterson

We congratulate Ali on all of this exciting news, and encourage you to see this exhibition should you be in the Las Vegas area. For details about the show, and facility times, please visit the Barrick Museum website.

MMG To Participate in Moving Image Art Fair, NY

Mark Moore Gallery is proud to announce its inclusion in the upcoming Moving Image Art Fair in New York, taking place March 6-9, 2014, alongside the Armory Week. Now partnered with Artsy, Art 21, Art in America, The Art Newspaper, and Aesthetica (among others) this fourth of the fair will be rife with special programming and features for fair visitors.

Moving Image was conceived to offer a viewing experience with the excitement and vitality of a fair, while allowing moving image-based artworks to be understood and appreciated on their own terms. Participation is by invitation only. The newly formed Moving Image Curatorial Advisory Committee for New York 2014 is inviting a selection of international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions to present single-channel videos, single-channel projections, video sculptures, and other larger video installations. This year, the gallery will present a solo video presentation by program artist, Jason Salavon.

Using software processes of his own design, Jason Salavon generates and reconfigures masses of communal material to present new perspectives on the familiar. Often, the final compositions are exhibited as art objects – such as photographic prints and video installations – while others exist in a real-time software context, such as “Rainbow Aggregator” (2013) which will be featured at the fair.

Moving Image will be located in the Waterfront Tunnel event space between 27th and 28th Streets with an entrance on 11th Avenue in Chelsea. The fair will be free to the public and open Thursday – Saturday, March 6-8, 11–8 PM and on Sunday, March 10, 11-4 PM. An opening reception will take place Thursday, March 6, 6–8 PM.

Please contact the gallery for additional information.

Kenichi Yokono at Art Stage Singapore

Congratulations to gallery artist Kenichi Yokono on his recent solo booth with Micheko Galerie at Art Stage Singapore. According to ArtInfo, among many other sources, the fair had excellent attendance and brisk sales – including many of Yokono’s work:

“Munich, Germany-based Micheko Galerie sold old eight works by emerging Japanese woodblock cut artist Kenichi Yokono for a total of SG$30,000. According to Micheko Galerie co-founder Michele Vitucci, ‘We have been visiting Art Stage since its first edition and it has developed into a world class art fair at the speed of light! We consider it better and more courageous than any of the Art Basel fairs. The art of the future will come predominantly from Asia and Art Stage has positioned itself as the art fair to be.’”
We applaud Micheko Galerie and Kenichi on this major achievement.

ALLISON SCHULNIK at ZieherSmith, January 9th

Opening at ZieherSmith (NY) this Thursday, January 9th, from 6-8pm is “EAGER,” a solo exhibition of new paintings, ceramics, and major film by MMG artist, Allison Schulnik. With live musical accompaniment by Aaron M. Olson and ensemble at 7pm and 8pm, the opening reception will be a sensory foray into Schulnik’s interdisciplinary practice.

Says the gallery:

“ZieherSmith is pleased to present Allison Schulnik’s second solo exhibition at the gallery featuring the world premiere of her fourth animated film since 2000, Eager, along with related paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. Drawing from sources both autobiographical and inspirational, Eager is a poignant journey set between a timeless void and supernatural abundance; it is a celebration of the moving painting. An experiment in animation as dance (the artist was trained as a dancer), its subjects are choreographed in abstract, emotive gestures. The line is blurred between the material elements of painting (texture, color, form) and the physicality and movement of ballet and theater.  At over 8 minutes, the film is her longest to date.”

Additionally, The Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut will host the museum premiere of Eager (2014) as part of the upcoming exhibition Allison Schulnik / MATRIX 168, presented February 6 – May 4, 2014.
