Carlos Bunga
Absence
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
March 11, 2017 - April 22, 2017
Central to Carlos Bunga’s exhibition is a site-specific installation that emerges from a dialogue with the gallery space and recalls a life-size architectural model. In his installations, Bunga not only encourages visitors to rethink their experience of space, but also evokes the transient and fragile nature of urban structures. Absence will also include works that make use of mass-produced materials such as cardboard, tissue, and house paint. Bringing to mind colorful interior walls, these works seemingly escape the traditional boundaries of painting, sculpture, and architecture. The exhibition will also include smaller sculptural works that similarly explore concepts of opposition central to Bunga’s practice such as packing and unpacking, internal and external space, permanence and transience.

 
Matthew Benedict
The Sea Cook
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
March 11, 2017 - April 22, 2017
On the lower level, a new body of work by Matthew Benedict will be on view. The exhibition takes its title from a new painting, The Sea Cook (2017), based on a historical photograph of the crew of the USS Monitor, an iron-hulled steamship built at Continental Iron Works in Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the Civil War. The exhibition will also include works on paper relating to the Monitor and other nautical scenes. Benedict paints in a graphic style reminiscent of early 20th century adventure story illustration and employs trompe-l’oeil techniques. He has lived and worked in Greenpoint for nearly thirty years and has created bodies of work based on great works of literature, the occult, and historical sources.

 
Jorge Macchi and Edgardo Rudnitzky
From Here to Eternity
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
March 11, 2017 - April 22, 2017
From Here to Eternity (2013), a collaborative work by Jorge Macchi and Edgardo Rudnitzky, will be installed in the video gallery. In this two-channel video projection, Macchi interprets the title of the 1953 Hollywood classic “From Here to Eternity” literally and paradoxically: the projection is composed of two loops based on the few seconds that both the title of the film and the words “THE END” appear in the movie. As the two clips have slightly different lengths, they present an unsynchronized whole in which their soundtracks overlap into a chaotic sound mixture. With the help of computer software, musician Edgardo Rudnitzky creates a third audio channel in real time: the software takes musical notes from both original soundtracks and develops another sung by women’s voices.

 
Paul Thek
Eye of the Beholder
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
January 12, 2017 - March 4, 2017
Eye of the Beholder, an exhibition of works on paper and small paintings by Paul Thek includes a pencil triptych executed in 1970 while he was living and working in Amsterdam. The three pages are filled with rows of vertical marks with a tender drawing of a lamb in the center, which points to Thek’s continued engagement with Christian iconography and Dutch Baroque painting. The exhibition title is taken from a turquoise watercolor which was included in Thek’s final lifetime installation Selected Works 1987-1988 at Brooke Alexander, New York.

 
Rita McBride
Premium New Markers
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
January 12, 2017 - March 4, 2017
Premium New Markers, a series of sculptures by Rita McBride will be shown in the entrance gallery. The works are inspired by Joseph Beuys' 7,000 Oaks project, inaugurated in 1982 at Documenta 7. Beuys’ plan called for the planting of 7,000 trees, each paired with a basalt marker. Sixteen of these tree/ marker pairs can be found on West 22nd Street, close to DIA Chelsea. Deriving their shape from those basalt totems, McBride's Premium New Markers are clad in Abet laminate, a material emblematic of post-modern architecture and design of the 1980s. With an eye trained on modern objects and architecture, McBride’s sculptures toy with the formalism and functionalism of public structures and their oft-overlooked role as mainstays in public space.

 
Jorge Macchi
Threshold
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
January 12, 2017 - March 4, 2017
Jorge Macchi is considered one of Argentina’s leading artists. Although Macchi has worked in a wide range of mediums from installation, sculpture, and works on paper to video and performance art, he has recently directed his efforts to painting, the discipline in which he was initially trained. The exhibition at Alexander and Bonin includes ten oil paintings made over the past three years. Departing from the ordinary and coincidental, his paintings alter scale and context, employing a system of layered visual complications and interruptions that offers a sensorial, disconcerting, and contemplative experience. Macchi’s paintings have been termed “anti-iconic” by curator and art historian Cuauhtémoc Medina, in that they seek to escape an overcoded, predictable interpretation of the medium and move toward an understanding of painting tied to individual experience and ambiguity.

 
Jonathas de Andrade
O Caseiro
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
January 12, 2017 - March 4, 2017
In the video gallery is Jonathas de Andrade’s O Caseiro/ The Housekeeper (2016), a work constructed symmetrically in two narratives with synchronized shots. On the left, Joaquim Pedro de Andrade’s 1959 film, O Mestre de Apipucos shows the daily life of Gilberto Freyre in his home in Recife. Freyre is the historicist who wrote the remarkable 1933 book Casa Grande e Senzala (The Masters and the Slaves). On the right, Jonathas de Andrade constructs a mirroring of Pedro de Andrade’s film, substituting Freyre with a fictional caretaker of the aristocratic residence. The parallel between the two characters establishes a tension that underlines aspects of class and race, two of the main subjects that Freyre dealt with in his work.

Channing Hansen
Self Portraits
195 Chrystie Street
New York, NY 10002
January 19, 2017 - February 25, 2017
CRG Gallery is pleased to present Channing Hansen’s first exhibition with the gallery, Self Portraits, a series of stretched, knit works “composed” using the artist’s unique genetic makeup, on view from January 19th, 2017 through February 25th, 2017. For Hansen, knitting began as a way to work with his hands while engaging his highly inquisitive mind, which often drifts between diverse subjects of mathematics, physics and cosmology. Unsurprisingly, for someone who spends much of his time contemplating origins, Hansen became intimately enveloped in every aspect of the knitting process, following the basic unit of the line— the fiber itself—back to its “roots.” Hansen uses fiber mostly derived from “conservation breeds” of sheep, as well as synthetic materials. He cleans, dyes, spins and sometimes shears the wool that he knits into organic, often unwieldy, forms stretched over virtually bare wooden stretchers. Despite the seemingly erratic movements in dimension and color, the knits are structured, or circumscribed by a systematic model: Hansen’s own DNA. Ninety-nine percent of the DNA possessed by humans is shared. What differentiates us, gives us our particular physical traits, is a variation in the DNA sequence known as single-nucleotide polymorphism, or SNP for short. Using his own genetic sequence received from a DNA testing service, Hansen created an algorithm, which underlies the “pattern” for each piece. Shifts in color, direction, fiber content and knit quality are determined by following the “score” of twenty-three variables (referring to the twenty-three pairs of chromosomes in human cells) output from the algorithmic function. In a Fluxus-spirited manner, the “knits” as Hansen calls them, are enacted in a process between the artist and the “score” generated by the computer algorithm. While the forms are based on Hansen’s DNA, their hybrid composition and knitted structure actualize the intermingling order and chaos that is a condition of existence for everyone. The cosmos they belong to connects us all. The title of each work comprises four parts: The first part, RFLP (restriction fragment length polymorphisms) refers to the process of extracting genomic data. The second part is the chromosome the sample was taken from. The third part is the artist’s unique SNP and the fourth part describes the genotype in question. Channing Hansen is included in the collections of the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation, Los Angeles; and the Ahmanson Foundation, Los Angeles, among others. His work has been included in exhibitions such as Made in LA 2014, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; When the Sun Hits, The Pit, Los Angeles; The Word Today, Suportico Lopez, Berlin; An Annotated Exhibition, Hilary Crisp, London; The Womb Womb Room, Night Gallery, Los Angeles; and Organic/Synthetic at the Glendale College Art Gallery, Glendale, California. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.

Anne Ryan (1889 - 1954)
Collages
231 East 60th Street
New York, NY 10022
January 31, 2017 - April 22, 2017
ANNE RYAN belonged to the early generation of New York School Abstract Expressionist artists and is today considered perhaps the premier American collagist of the 20th century. Her abstract collages, comprised of paper and sometimes fabric and found materials, tend to fall somewhere in a spectrum between a so-called painterly or “expressionist” type and a more cold, geometric so-called “classical” style. These small but potent abstract pictures have been hailed as “exquisite” (Holland Cotter) for their intimate and formal elements and masterful command of abstraction. RYAN was born in Hoboken, NJ, and educated in a convent school, which she left to marry a lawyer with whom she had three children. RYAN did not begin her artistic career until the second half of her life, initially pursuing writing as her first creative foray. After publishing a volume of poems in 1925 and a novel in 1926, RYAN moved to Majorca in 1931; she returned to New York in 1933. It was in New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood where RYAN encountered fellow writers, artists, and intellectuals, including Hans Hofmann, who encouraged her to begin painting. She joined the printmaking workshop of Stanley William Hayter, Atelier XVII, in 1941 and had a solo exhibition of her paintings at the Pinacotheca that same year. She continued to make and exhibit her paintings until, during a visit to the Rose Fried Gallery in 1948, RYAN encountered the collages of Kurt Schwitters. Upon seeing these works, she immediately began to make abstract collages. By the early 1950s she was exhibiting at the celebrated Betty Parsons Gallery and her work was included in the Museum of Modern Art “American Painting and Sculpture” in 1951. All her collages were created during the period of six years preceding her death in 1954 at age 65. Her work has been exhibited at Betty Parsons Gallery, Kraushaar Galleries, Marlborough Gallery, and Washburn Gallery, and in museums including the Brooklyn Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Yale University Art Gallery, among others. The exhibition will consist of twenty collages dating from the 1948 through 1954.

February 4, 2017 - March 11, 2017
Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition from internationally celebrated artist Leiko Ikemura. Walking into an exhibition of Ikemura’s work is to be invited into another world. Her soft, dream-like paintings and her expressive ceramic sculpture convey a world in which humans and nature meld fluidly, and a dramatic eroticism permeates the work. Throughout her almost four-decade career, Ikemura has continued to explore ideas of alienation and fragmentation, and the fragility and vulnerability of the human state.

 
Bovey Lee
The Sea Will Come to Kiss Me
1275 Minnesota Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
January 7, 2017 - March 11, 2017
Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present The Sea Will Come to Kiss Me, a site-specific installation by Los Angeles based artist Bovey Lee. Engendered in response to the contentious rhetoric of the recent election, The Sea Will Come to Kiss Me mirrors Lee’s anxiety as an immigrant, a woman, and a person of color. Entering the gallery, the viewer is confronted with a perforated wall. This barrier is impassable, yet visually permeable; behind it hundreds of paper boats, meticulously folded from the artist’s immigration paperwork, are suspended from the ceiling. Using the wall as a metaphor for exclusion and longing, the gallery and its contents can be seen, but not entered.

Rina Banerjee
Human Likeness
260 Utah Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
January 28, 2017 - March 4, 2017
Kolkata-born and New York-based, Rina Banerjee fills the entire gallery with her fantastical, immoderate sculptures and delicately swirling paintings in an exhibition that seeks to describe the human experience in an era of unprecedented migration and interconnectedness. Banerjee’s sculptures are shamanistic assemblages of textiles, feathers, sparkling glass and tinkling bells. Beaded, embroidered and sensuously monstrous, they wantonly conjoin the exotic and rare with the cheap and mass-produced — rejecting conventional hierarchies of material and culture. In her paintings, chimeric female forms dance and float through vibrant, bountiful landscapes in states of hybrid transformation. In a post-colonial, global world, identity — racial, cultural or gender — is no longer easily defined. In this exhibition, Banerjee offers up the optimistic possibility of a world freed from the constraints of conventional standards of beauty, worth, social pecking order and what is “proper.” We live in a moment of singular opportunity, Banerjee posits, a moment when it is possible for individuals to define themselves in a way that is truly authentic. Rina Banerjee (b. 1963, Kolkata, India) received a BS in Polymer Engineering and worked as a research chemist before completing her MFA at Yale in 1995. Recent solo museum exhibitions include the Smithsonian Museum’s Sackler Galleries (Washington DC) and the Musée Guimet (Paris). Her work was included in the 2000 Whitney Biennial, the 2005 and 2015 Greater New York Shows at PS1/MOMA, the 2013 Venice Biennale’s White Light/White Heat at the Glasstress Museum, the 2015 Asian Art Biennial at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taichung) and the 2016 Busan Biennial, South Korea. Her work will be included in this year’s Prospect 4 New Orleans Biennial. Her work is in the collections of the Devi Art Foundation (New Delhi), Kiran Nadar Museum (New Delhi), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), The Brooklyn Museum (New York), Berkeley Art Museum (Berkeley, CA), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), and many others.
