RONIN GALLERY: KUNIYOSHI MASTERPIECES

March 14th - April 28th 2018

425 Madison Avenue, 3rd Floor, 10017, NY

Ronin Gallery invites you to immerse yourself in the fantastical realms of Kuniyoshi's woodblock prints. The exhibition Kuniyoshi: The Masterpieces explores the ravenous imagination and unmatched skill of this ukiyo-e master through his most celebrated designs, including his most iconic triptychs such as Tametomo and his Son Rescued from the Sea Monster by Tengu and Princess Takiyasha and the Skeleton Specter.  While the words “ukiyo-e” and Japanese print often call to mind elegant courtesans and picturesque landscapes, Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) presents a complementary, yet counter point.  Like Hokusai is to landscape, Kuniyoshi belongs to the ukiyo-e canon, bringing Japanese myth, magic, history, and legend to life.

JOAN SNYDER: SELECTED PRINTS 1975 - 2018

April 12th - May 24th 2018

Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is pleased to present Joan Snyder / Selected Prints 1975-2018, an exhibition of eleven of Snyder’s most important prints. The show features highlights of her printmaking activity from the 1970s onward, including her newest, “hot off the press” print, Chant/Forever (2018). Joan Snyder has been adventurous in her approach to printmaking, particularly in etching and woodcut. In the 1990s, she began combining different printmaking techniques and color applications in boldly untraditional ways, often making varying impressions with an open-ended inventiveness within editions that are ultimately complex to produce. Snyder’s art has always been informed by nature, by the landscape, and deals with deeply personal themes, among them female sexuality, mortality, and social injustice.

Artist Chittaprosad’s retrospective will travel out of the country for the first time to DAG’s gallery in New York, coinciding with Asia Art Week in March 2018.

It is with this current exhibition that a facsimile edition of the original has been published for the first time since. The retrospective also looks at Chittaprosad’s political art as well as his printmaking

November 17th 2017 - March 25th 2018

99 Gansevoort Street, New York, NY 10014

Experiments in Electrostatics: Photocopy Art from the Whitney’s Collection, 1966–1986 explores the use of the photocopier as a creative tool, from its public emergence in the 1960s to the dawn of the digital era in the 1980s. Despite the machine’s intended function to reproduce office documents, artists inventively utilized it as a camera and printing press to create original fine art prints. Focusing on three artists and one collective—Edward Meneeley, Lesley Schiff, Barbara T. Smith, and the International Society of Copier Artists—this exhibition investigates how artists found self-expression through a machine designed for replication.

Pace Prints | Sol LeWitt

October 27, 2017 - December 2, 2017

Pace Prints, 521 West 26th Street, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10001, United States +Google Map

This exhibition highlights a variety of works from the artist’s print œuvre, spanning from the 1980s to early 2000s. Prominently featured is Horizontal Color Bands and Vertical Color Bands, a set of seven etchings with aquatint. Here, LeWitt uses the inherent quality of the aquatint medium to showcase the vibrant palette produced by overlapping “2 and 3 part combinations“ of primary colors and gray. A pioneer of conceptual art, LeWitt helped to transform the definition of contemporary art in the 1960s with his statement that “the idea becomes a machine that makes the art.” Reducing form down to its essential, the cube became the base unit for LeWitt’s artistic inquiry.

New York, NY 10004 United States+ Google Map

Loosely translated, the Inuktitut word akunnittinni means “between us.” This exhibition chronicles a visual conversation between an Inuk grandmother, mother, and daughter: Pitseolak Ashoona (1904–1983), Napachie Pootoogook (1938–2002), and Annie Pootoogook (1969–2016). Their artworks provide a personal and cultural history of three generations of Inuit women whose art practices included autobiographical narratives and chronicled intimate and sometimes harsh memories and historically resonant moments. The prints and drawings on view also include sardonic references to pop culture, which now infuses everyday…
