The Drawing is the Moveable Feast


May 9th - June 1st, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday May 9th, 6-8pm

PROTO GOMEZ presents The Drawing is the Movable Feast, a continuation of the recent PROTO Gallery Artsy online-exclusive exhibition, The Drawing is the Wide Open Window, (Jan 5 - Feb 28, 2019) which featured a selection of drawings by ten artists known for their work in other media. This exhibition is the second in what is envisioned to be an ongoing series dedicated to reviewing the role that drawing plays within a diverse range of artmaking practices.

Entitled The Drawing is the Moveable Feast, this installment features an unframed, clinical survey of eight artists’ ongoing dialogue with drawing as both an ancillary, investigatory support for their work in other mediums as well as a cogent vehicle and resource within which to examine and explore their varied and aesthetic concerns. Housed at PROTOGOMEZ Gallery from Thurs May 9th through Sat June 1st, 2019, the laboratory-like exhibition encourages an intimate look at the works on display, installed unframed and casually stacked atop two tables within the gallery. Attendants will be on hand to assist and visitors can wear supplied cotton gloves with which to peruse, turn, handle and consider more closely the works on view. 

The Drawing is The Moveable Feast with work by Louis Ardine, Kat Chamberlin, Brian Edmonds, Rachael Gorchov, John Kramer, Anna Ortiz, Charles Sommer and Denise Treizman.

The Cooper Union Summer Art Intensive Artist Residency

The Cooper Union offers four artist residencies within the Summer Art Intensive Program. The fellowships will be given to outstanding visual artists who will spend one month, June 28th though July 30th, on-campus developing a new project in the Painting and Drawing Department. The residency, which began in 1993, was created to support teaching artists whose professional practice in action, would contribute to the education of the summer program students. The residency provides spacious, sky lit professional studios, and an exhibition honoring the residents’ work. The exhibition will be organized by the Cooper Union immediately following the residency in conjunction with the pre-college Summer Art Intensive program.

Revealing Reflected Refractions

Revealing Reflected Refractions
August 4 – September 10, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, August 4, 6-9pm 

Tiger Strikes Asteroid New York is pleased to present Revealing Reflected Refractions, an exhibition featuring work by Karin FerrariHai-Hsin HuangAlison Kudlow and Nooshin Rostami; curated by Jonathan Cowan and Rachael Gorchov. At turns playful, conspiratorial, empathic, humorous, political, and sensorial, the works in this exhibition serve as prisms that refract unseen truths, illuminating the familiar in unexpected ways.

Karin Ferrari’s video unmasks subliminal messages and manipulations in the media by analyzing the opening graphics of Zeit im Bild, Austria’s national news show. By using fringe belief systems ranging from mind control, space colonization, the Illuminati and alchemy to deconstruct the seemingly innocuous, Ferrari asks us to question who is informing our worldview, and to what end. Alternating between deadpan and tongue-in-cheek, she shows us that much of what we believe is shaped by our own biases.    

Hai-Hsin Huang’s drawings and paintings are humorous depictions of people going about their everyday lives. As an emigrant from Taiwan to the U.S. who has also spent time in Europe and Asia, Huang holds a metaphorical mirror to citizens of the various cultures she is a part of, both as participant and outside observer. Seeing human experience through this lens, the viewer is imparted with greater empathy for the absurdities of human existence.

Alison Kudlow uses the light of the sun to create work that questions the dogma of science and religion. By translating and describing the intangible qualities of reflected and refracted light into sculptural forms that can only fail to translate an experience perfectly, her work reveals the fragile beauty inherent in our attempts to make sense of the world.

Nooshin Rostami’s site-specific sculpture is both a bridge and an obstacle made of moveable reflective materials set in black sand and iron filings. Serving as a metaphor for international migration and exile informed by personal experience, Rostami shifts viewers’ experiences of the gallery space by asking them to navigate through and around a precarious structure.
