Robyn O'Neil

The Cloudmakers

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

Robyn O’Neil developed a love for cloud formations through many years logged living and traveling throughout the Midwest and Texas. After relocating to the West Coast, persistent blue skies and a nostalgia for the dramatic weather patterns of her youth prompted her to begin “collecting” renderings of actual cloud sightings and images taken from Art History and popular culture, resulting in her recent Cloudmaker series. Her graphite drawings are a study in the sublime, rendering in careful detail the breathtaking, panoramic views of the greatest outdoors. Our viewing room devoted to the Cloudmaker drawings breaks down these detailed works to their very source, laying bare the eclectic variety of art and memory that fuels O’Neil’s singular vision. Videos showcasing the minute details of her works as well as audio recordings from the artist herself provide further insight into these complex, labyrinthine landscapes.

William Villalongo

Maren Hassinger

Nature, Sweet Nature at the Aspen Art Museum

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

Maren Hassinger has created two site-specific wire and concrete works for the Aspen Art Museum's Roof Deck Sculpture Garden— these new installations, "Paradise Regained" and "Garden," mimic the natural landscape using industrial materials common to Hassinger's practice: wire-rope and concrete. "Garden" features 43 wire-rope sculptures that burst forth from the rooftop's planters, acting as an unwieldy vine among the existing flora and fauna."Paradise Regained" sits freestanding in the center of the courtyard, orderly rows of wrought wire "swaying" in the wind like a field of grass. In dialogue with Aspen's majestic setting, Hassinger asks viewers to take a moment to reflect on the beauty of their surroundings and to consider the role that nature plays in their lives.

William Villalongo

Black Metamorphosis

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

William Villalongo is well known for working in a variety of media, but perhaps best known for his black velour cut paper pieces. In recent years he has used the device to address the disappearance of the Black Male from contemporary life, the marginalization of people of color, and most recently the transformation and evolution of Black identity. The two recent works featured in this viewing room, Black Metamorphosis 1452 and Near & Far, incorporate symbols of metamorphosis to represent that change. From the void, a swirl of cut flora and fauna, images of crystals, butterflies, and African artifacts coalesce to form a singularly powerful figure. Villalongo’s work considers the depiction of Black bodies throughout history, evoking the experience of the Black diaspora and celebrating Black identity.

Alain Kirili and Ariane Lopez-Huici

The Salon

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

Alain Kirili’s artistic practice has long been interwoven with his love for World Music. In early childhood, Kirili heard the pioneering musician Sidney Bechet give an impromptu performance in his parents' kitchen. Since that time, the artist’s love of music in all forms has inspired his own artistic growth. Along with his wife, Ariane Lopez-Huici, he seeks to convey a sensuality and joie de vivre that he first discovered through this early encounter with improvisational jazz. Both Kirili and Lopez-Huici’s work respectively break down conventional barriers of artistic form through a celebration of spiritual exuberance. Since emigrating to the United States in the late 1970s, the pair have opened up their White Street loft in Tribeca for salon-style performances of freestyle musicians and dancers. The legendary stage, while showcasing the talents of musical and performance artists, is an interdisciplinary collaboration— through their improvised works, the performers directly respond to the art in the space, activating the pieces in a new way. Kirili and Lopez-Huici have been critical in implementing similar programming in their respective exhibitions, including a salon hosted at the Gallery for Kirili’s solo exhibition in September 2019. The kinship and dialogue between artist and performer encapsulate the couple’s resolve to break free from conformity, a willingness to take risks and remain open to inspiration in all forms. This viewing room provides an insider’s glimpse into Kirili and Huici-Lopez’s salons and explores how attributes from these performances have been a source of artistic inspiration for all involved. In the current age of sheltering at home, their salons are an exciting example of the intimacy and magic of sharing art with others.

Marcia Kure

The 111 Project

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

The 111 Project, a limited-edition of 111 masks made in batches of 10 and one unique edition. 100% of proceeds will benefit The Coalition for the Homeless and BronxWorks. There are 11 different color combinations from which to choose. The titles reference archetypes such as the Sheriff and Outlaw, abstract concepts like "Tactical Cranes in a Cotton Candy Colored Sky," and physical reminders of what remains after trauma, "Marks and Scars." There is also one unique mask, "And One," that subverts the functionality of the mask as it is transparent, a simple yet symbolic reminder of this historical moment. Editioned masks are $50 each, shipping charges included. In addition to giving all profits to The Coalition for the Homeless and BronxWorks, 25 handmade fabric masks will be donated to New York-Presbyterian Hospital. All sales are through Susan Inglett Gallery, NYC.

Benjamin Degen

In Waves

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present "In Waves", featuring new work by BENJAMIN DEGEN, from 14 March through 24 July 2020. An opening reception will be held the evening of 14 March from 6 to 8 PM. The artist’s fourth solo exhibition at the Gallery, "In Waves" presents paintings and drawings that continue his exploration of landscape, movement, and observation. In Gallery II are two new sculptures by Alain Kirili entitled Toccata I and Toccata II. Degen’s works employ extensive mark-making and fluid touches to describe a human presence. As the paint darts across the canvas or the ink is actively applied on paper, we move through the landscape while the landscape moves through us. Degen’s act of looking becomes a way for us to see ourselves, within a moment, connected to this world. BENJAMIN DEGEN was born in 1976 in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA from The Cooper Union in 1998. Select exhibitions include “Inner Landscapes,” Galleria Anna Marra, Rome, IT; “Painting as a Radical Form,” Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, IT; and “Greater New York,” MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY. His works are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY; Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, IT; The Nerman MoCA, Overland Park, KS; and more. "In Waves" will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

Robert Kobayashi

Moe's Meat Market

522 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011

September 17, 2020 - November 7, 2020
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Moe’s Meat Market, an exhibition of historical work by ROBERT KOBAYASHI (1925–2015). Moe’s Meat Market is the first presentation of work by Kobayashi in the Gallery. We will be publishing an online catalogue for the exhibition featuring reminiscences from his wife, Kate Keller Kobayashi, and their daughter, Misa Kobayashi. Robert Kobayashi trained at art schools in his native Honolulu and in New York before beginning work at the Museum of Modern Art, NYC as caretaker for their Japanese House in 1954. His position at the museum created opportunities to grow as an artist during a defining moment in the New York art world, participating in contemporary exhibitions in artist-run galleries like Brata and Camino Galleries and with art dealer Sam Koontz. The work shown in these spaces garnered positive reviews from critics at major publications including The New Yorker and The New York Times. In the decades that followed, Kobayashi sought to move away and differentiate himself from his abstract peers by pursuing materials and techniques that more closely aligned with his personal interests. The year before his retirement from MoMA in 1978, Kobayashi bought a building with his wife, Kate Keller Kobayashi, on Elizabeth Street in Little Italy. Taking over an existing butcher shop, the space assumed various guises, ultimately settling into its role as gallery operating under the moniker, Moe’s Meat Market. Avoiding commercial art settings, Kobayashi preferred to present his pieces at Moe’s Meat Market, and by 2009, the space served exclusively to exhibit his own work. A local landmark, he entranced passersby with rotating window displays and innovative presentations of his art, placing work directly on the floor or hanging it from the shop’s original meat hooks. The gallery kept limited public hours according to the dictates of whim rather than commerce. Kobayashi drew his energy and materials from the streets of Little Italy developing a unique style of mixed media dubbed by writer Michael Florescu, clouage, taken from the French verb “to nail.” Using found metals and detritus, he cobbled together 2 and 3-D works from discarded ceiling tin as well as beer and Cafe Bustelo cans. Through bricolage, he depicts intimate moments from the surrounding neighborhood. In Summer Window (2010), a nearly empty room features a singular vanity next to a window with a verdant view. Sculptures of fresh flowers in vases, like those from the flower markets in Little Italy, connect with his metal still-lifes of glasses and fruit on tabletops. These neglected materials and forgotten everyday city sights are elevated by Kobayashi’s distinctive touch. Beyond these quotidian scenes, Kobayashi draws the eye back to the found materials so central to and characteristic of his work. The hammered surface of the tin tiles gives his pieces an almost pointillist appearance. From a distance, the raised nails and the geometric placement of the metalwork create an abstract pattern to be admired as an object unto itself. His sourced materials and subject matter result in examples that are emblematic of both the artist and his surroundings. Although Moe’s Meat Market closed in 2017, two years following Kobayashi’s death, the vibrant energy and memory of the gallery live on through his work. As Elizabeth Street now bustles with high-end, trendy shops, Kobayashi’s art embodies a bygone era of Little Italy, a poignant reminder in the present day of New York’s ever-evolving cultural landscape. ROBERT KOBAYASHI was born in 1925 in Honolulu, HI. After serving in the military during World War II, he was encouraged to pursue a career as an artist by his sister, Fumi, attending both the Honolulu Academy of Art and the Brooklyn Museum School of Art. In 1988, Kobayashi had his first major solo exhibition, Tattooed Angel: Paintings and Sculpture by Robert Kobayashi, at the Nassau County Museum of Fine Art, Roslyn, NY. Exhibitions since that time include Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952-1965, Grey Art Gallery, New York University, NYC; Hawaii to New York, Contemporary Museum at First Hawaiian Center, Honolulu, HI; and Robert Kobayashi: Moonflowers, New York University Broadway Windows, NYC. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY; the Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, HI; and the Nassau Museum of Art, Roslyn, NY, among others. He died in his hometown of Honolulu in 2015.
