Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is thrilled to present Collected Works: A Brief History of Artists Alliance Inc., an installation by LES Studio Program resident Alison Owen and curated by Sanna Almajedi. Collected Works is an imprint of The Clemente building on 107 Suffolk St. created through Artist Alliance Inc. archive, and the residue of its artists-in-residence. Artist Alison Owen tells her own story of what AAI is in an investigative installation situated at the Cuchifritos Gallery. The installation consists of the remnants and ephemera of current and former residents’ creative projects, as well as dust, paint chips, and other materials collected from the stairwells and studios, creating an impression of what it means to work within AAI’s community. The Clemente has been occupied by artists since the 80s; Owen herself has been an artist-in-residence there since October 2016 through AAI’s LES Studio Program. Owen’s installation will be accompanied by a catalog introducing the audience to the rich and creative history of AAI, told through the perspective of both short- and long-term residents.

Xtrotecture is a project which examines the simultaneous local and global presence of Lower Manhattan in an age of late-capitalism, technological acceleration, and the Anthropocene. How do we envisage the city now, and what potential strategies are available for confronting these contemporary aporias? In this phase of the project, artist and writer Joshua Johnson will interview artists, theorists and experts who have articulated new conceptualizations of architecture, technology, and planning for the 21st century. These interviews will be conducted in Artists Alliance’s Cuchifritos Gallery, in the midst of an evolving installation. The interviews will be publicly broadcast and documented on a companion website: http://xtrotecture.com

Presented as part of the Workspace 2016 series, featuring the work of LES Studio Program artists-in-residence.

PS160 is an immersive architectural installation that will take place inside The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center. Created by artist Gabrielle Mertz and commissioned by Artists Alliance, the project utilizes a choreographed series of light and sound projections located throughout the Clemente building to construct a performative experience of the architecture. The installation references structural and design elements of the Dutch Neo-Gothic landmark, as well as the building’s history within the Lower East Side neighborhood, original function as a school, and later use by artists and community members. The event also celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Law, which helped to catalyze the architectural preservation movement in the United States.

Drawing on her background as a professional choreographer, the artist constructs a site-specific, immersive experience that places the architecture of the building at center stage and in the role of performer. Audiences will be able to explore the building’s performance at will using a map provided by the artist. PS160 refers to the building’s former life as Public School 160, the name conferred by the New York City Board of Education’s Committee on Buildings upon construction in 1897.

Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is thrilled to present Nom Nom Ohm: When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Chandeliers, an installation by Jessica Segall that features two chandelier light fixtures powered by the unlikely source of produce. The antique chandeliers are illuminated using products bought from Essex Street Market vendor Viva Fruit and Vegetables. The pair of opulent chandeliers were rewired to use the unidirectional flow of electrical charge, or DC power, to collect all of their energy from the humble source of market-bought fruit.

"Formerly we used to represent things visible on earth, things we either liked to look at or would have liked to see. Today we reveal the reality that is behind visible things, thus expressing the belief that the visible world is merely an isolated case in relation to the universe and that there are many more other, latent realities. Things appear to assume a broader and more diversified meaning, often seemingly contradicting the rational experience of yesterday…" – Paul Klee, Creative Confession (1920)

Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is thrilled to present on the subversion of opacity, a two-person exhibition of recent work by Arianna Carossa and Beatrice Glow, curated by Alessandro Facente.

Through site-specific installations, including sculpture and digital prints on silk, this exhibition considers the ways in which artists provide an indirect view of reality, representing it as a fictional mythology drawn from its facts, forms, or histories, but never reflecting them directly. Even as a fiction, this mythology is able, perhaps even more so, to reveal the original reality at its core; an inner essence not beholden to its usual context, interpretation or common understanding. Instead, the new work behaves as autonomous form; an expanded field that is both in balance and in tension with the one from which it has been originally generated.

Cuchifritos Gallery is pleased to present Denise Treizman’s first solo exhibition in New York, DelanceyLudlowRivingtonNorfolk. This recent body of work takes its starting point with the gallery’s neighborhood in mind, considering site-specificity in both the use of found materials, as well as the sentiment and spirit of the Lower East Side. Continuing and expanding upon her process-oriented and material-centric practice, Denise’s work conjures a sense of hopefulness and resourcefulness reminiscent of the area’s history.

Perhaps best known for her use of found objects, Denise’s oeuvre has an inherent sense of surprise that is shared by artist and viewer. Her intuitive process is led by a response to materials and a formal interest in the finished work. The rubbery sheen of a ball or grainy texture of sand can inspire a particular direction in her making. While the works might seem haphazard at first glance, Denise’s use of color, texture, and spatial relationships between objects are carefully decided through a process which is playful yet restrained. She takes the traditions of readymades and assemblage, and pairs it with her own unique perspective in which formal concerns meet an ephemeral or durational approach.

With a nod to the recent all-female exhibition in a male-run corporate space, Not a Champagne Life brings together the works of three emerging artists in a female-run independent gallery, and addresses the subjects of social order, gender equality and freedom of speech.

Not a Champagne Life features three-dimensional works by Emma Elliott, Penelope Harrall and Ian Wolter, and makes reference to the luxury lifestyles enjoyed by a privileged minority compared to the increasing burden of austerity on the majority of people.

The selected works combine strong figurative and symbolic elements with performance, sound and movement while commenting on the hidden metaphor of each respective medium: Ian Wolter’s busts implying status and authority; the assumption of aesthetic beauty in bronze as illustrated by Emma Elliott; while the items of feminine care at the core of Penelope Harrall’s work are generally expected to be hidden from view.

The launch event and private view on 21 April will include a live performance by Penelope Harrall, and the exhibition will be closing with a panel discussion on the artists’ respective approach to themes of social and political relevance on May Day, a date of pre-Christian significance more recently observed as Labour Day across the world.

Born in Puerto Rico and residing for decades in Chicago, artist Edra Soto has found many ways over the years to transplant forms of Boricua domesticity to a mainland context. With her GRAFT project, which has been realized in many Chicago locations, she focuses on elaborate screen-like porch enclosures known as rejas, ubiquitous throughout the island. For the installation at Cuchifritos, there will also be a takeaway newspaper in which various writers reflect on the complex colonial influences that brought rejas into being. The newspaper and the reja installed in the gallery window can be contemplated from seats modeled on San Juan’s bus shelters, another feature of the island’s unique architectural vernacular.

The Caribbean marks the starting point of modern Western incursions into this hemisphere, and is the place where indigenous and African populations toiled under and resisted white force, without significant white support. Yet Puerto Ricans, as incomplete American citizens, can seem to occupy a background place in conversations around immigration, history, and race. At a time when Puerto Rico’s crippling debt has forced difficult conversations about its ambiguous relationship with the U.S., in an election year that sees anti-Latino rhetoric running high, the way in which colonial history can disappear into the woodwork is made literal in Soto’s ornate yet understated installation.

Submissions are open now (11 March to 17 June 2016) on a first come first served basis. There is no selection process but we will have to stop accepting artwork once the gallery space has reached capacity.

Happenstance Gallery is again organising an exhibition of paintings, graphic and mixed media works, photographs, sculpture and prints rejected by the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. It is following in the tradition of the 19th century Parisian Salon des Refusés, when Napoleon let rejected works be exhibited alongside those accepted ones after artists protested the Salon jury’s rejection of 3000 works.

Unlike our Parisian predecessors, we are not protesting but assisting. We respect the Royal Academicians’ judgement and understand that exhibiting at the RA Summer Exhibition is a great honor and privilege, and that the RA walls are limited and a lot of good artwork has to be rejected.

We want those works to still be on show and to let the public judge which ones they like most of all, independent from experts’ decision. For this reason, every visitor to the exhibition will be asked to vote for three favorite pieces.

Salon des Refuses 2016 will be held at SPACE – a beautiful gallery in Mare Street, Hackney, East London. The exhibition will be open to public from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 June 2016.

Email us on salondesrefuses.ra@gmail.com with the artwork image (for admin), name and size. There is no selection process. All artworks are accepted provided they were submitted for the RA Summer Exhibition.

I am a Bulgarian London-based animation student planning on spending my Spring vacation (April-May) in Berlin and I want to be a part of a creative process. So in a few words I am offering assistance of any kind required for any sort of film/art project that might make use of my skills, which include film editing, animation, digital and traditional art. I am also up for helping with the organisation of any projects/events/festivals and I've got plenty of hospitality services experience.
If that sounds alright to you, drop me a message.
