Linchpin is an exhibition of recent sculpture by Joe Ferriso, Conrad Guevara and Chelsea Pegram curated by Anna Nearburg & Evan Reiser. The works revolve around a compositional point of tension which supports the “weight,” both actual and metaphorical, of its cumulative parts. This precarity exposes vulnerability in otherwise sturdy objects, resulting in dynamic, architectural constructions tottering on the brink of total dissolution. They appear ready to unravel, a game of Jenga at its penultimate moment.
Curator Alexandra Picard and SPACE 151 are proud to present San Francisco-based artists Vanesa Gingold and Mary Button Durell in the two-person show, Volupté. This exhibition explores the natural genesis of material and form through light, translucency, surface texture and structure.
Join us for the opening reception of DRAW THE LINE, by T. Stefan Gesek at SPACE 151 on Friday May 19 from 5-8pm presented by TMT Artist Collective and Levy Art + Architecture. Through various scales & mediums: painting, ceramics and drawing; his work explores the world and psyche of the everyday human experience, and embraces the imperfections vital within that experience.
MANUAL DIGITAL features the works of eight national artists who have developed new visual languages by embracing digital tools in their primarily analog work. The works in this show are part of "The New Aesthetic", coined by James Bridle, and this exhibition presents artwork that is defined by or influenced by computer technology’s increasing role in daily life. The technologically informed practices of these artists reveal new potential meeting points about the time and space in which we equally reside. While the intersections of art & technology have garnered attention in the growing and varied genre known as new media, the practice of many contemporary artists relies on technology in ways that are more subtle to the eye and accessible to a wider public audience. Curated by artist, art consultant and independent curator Beth Waldman.
