CHELSEA:

Andrea Rosen Gallery: “Felix Gonzalez-Torres”

Andrea Rosen Gallery presents “Felix Gonzalez-Torres” on view from May 3 to June 18, 2016 in the Main Gallery. An Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, May 5, from 6 to 8 p.m.

A three-part international exhibition of the work of Felix Gonzalez-Torres (1957 - 1996)  will open at Andrea Rosen Gallery (New York); Massimo De Carlo (Milan); and Hauser & Wirth (London). Curated by artists Julie Ault and Roni Horn, each exhibition will focus on the "dialogue between works within an essential form" created by the artist. By engaging the range of decisions involved in the exhibition and installation of selected Gonzalez-Torres works that require being made anew, Ault and Horn seek to underscore vital methods reflected throughout the artist’s entire oeuvre. The individual experience of each of the three exhibitions are intended to better understood in the larger context of all three. Gonzalez-Torres is known for his minimal sculptures and installations using unusual materials including lightbulbs, clocks, puzzle pieces, hard candies and more. 

Andrea Rosen Gallery is located at 525 W 24th St, New York, NY 10011. www.andrearosengallery.com.

Likewise, the exhibition centers on metaphysical notions of love and different forms of intimacy.

Causey Contemporary: “Sporting Fate: Christopher Hart Chambers”

Causey Contemporary presents “Sporting Fate: Christopher Hart Chambers” on view from May 12 to June 5, 2016.

This solo show by Christopher Hart Chambers includes his painted sculptures inspired by symbols of Americana. Hart takes inspiration from the aerodynamic structures of sports cars, speedboats, spacecraft and more in his abstracted works, working within notions of what he calls “a modular form of sculpture that can be broken down and rearranged at will,” which “lends an industrial functionality to the work that playfully encroaches on architecture and design.”

Causey Contemporary is located at 29 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002. www.causeycontemporary.com.
