“Long Dream: Tracy Borg” - Watermill Center
The one-night only mixed media video installation takes place tonight only (June 5) from 6 to 8 p.m. Part of an ongoing and developing project, the installation includes looped video projected onto the doors of laundry machines. The project anticipates projecting videos of singular naked bodies swirling in underwater worlds onto washing machine doors in public laundromats on Long Island to create an analogy between spinning wet clothes and the dampened dreams of the Latino immigrant.
Borg is working in collaboration with photographers Experanza Sandoval and Walter Sanchez. Catch their concept at Watermill Center where Borg has been an artist-in-residence. Free but reservations are required.
Watermill Center is located at 39 Watermill Towd Road, Watermill, NY 11976. www.watermillcenter.org.
“Cindy Patrick: East End Eden” at Quogue Library Gallery
Cindy Patrick retired her film explorations with "traditional" alternative photography processes in favor of making painterly images using only an iPhone and iPad. Considered "one of the leading practicians of iPhoneography," according to the gallery, Patrick has exhibited her work in galleries across the United States and abroad. She has contributed to two books on the subject and has presented at the annual MacWorld Conference as part of the “Mobile Masters Sessions.”
On Saturday, Patrick presents a lecture “Art in Your Pocket: Using the iPhone as a Creative Tool” at 1:30 p.m., followed by a reception for her solo show from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The exhibition, "Cindy Patrick: East End Eden" continues through June 29. The Quogue Library Gallery is located at 90 Quogue Street, Quogue, NY 11959. www.quoguelibrary.org.
"Other City" by Matt Kenny and "Recursions" by Adam Marnie at Halsey Mckay Gallery
Concurrent solo exhibitions of paintings by Matt Kenny and mixed media works Adam Marnie open on Saturday and continues through June 23 at Halsey Mckay Gallery. An Opening Reception takes place on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
“Other City” Mr. Kenny’s first solo show at the gallery, includes three bodies of work that map the psychological and physical residue of New York City’s ever-expanding landscape.
Marnie's work on view continues his practice of site-specific installation and architectural intervention. The works feature red inkjet prints mounted onto altered sheets of drywall and are installed with the intent of transforming the exhibition space.
