The artist creates his works through a process of process of layering colors and sanding away the surface in one masked-off area at a time, resulting in surprising color relationships and textures that call spacial depth into question. Click here for exhibition details. 

"New Paintings" present the latest works by Eric Blum featuring his ink-washed and wax-infused paintings on silk. Blum searches for unexpected juxtapositions and an awkward harmony with undercurrents that can sometimes menace. His art is rooted in modern painting techniques yet activated by experimental manipulation. Click here for exhibition details.

Lisson Gallery: “John Akomfrah”

Lisson Gallery presents “John Akomfrah” on view from June 24 to August 12, 2016. An Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, June 23 from 6 to 8 p.m.

This is the first major exhibition in the United States for John Akomfrah, a British artist, filmmaker and a founder of the Black Audio Film Collective. Known for his use of archival film footage, still photography and newsreel combined with new material, Akomfrah’s works are informed by their investigations into memory, post-colonialism, temporality and aesthetics and often explore the experience of the African diaspora in Europe and the United States.

The exhibition presents two film installations, The Airport and Auto Da Fé. The Airport is a three-screen work that serves as a meditation on Greek history and its recent financial crisis and a contemplation of empire and the significance of empire and memories lingering in our collective consciousness. Auto Da Fé is a diptych explores migration and the experience of dislocation and alienation through the lens of religious persecution. The documentation focuses on eight historical migrations that have taken place over the last 400 years from the 1654 to the current day.

Lisson Gallery is located at 504 W 24th St, New York, NY 10011. www.lissongallery.com.
