CHELSEA

Gallery Henoch: “Todd Kenyon: Endless Summer”

March 22 through April 14, 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 22, from 6 to 8 p.m.

In his debut show in New York, Todd Kenyon will present “Endless Summer” at Gallery Henoch.

The exhibition will feature oil on canvas works depicting the beauty of the California coastline. Todd Kenyon, who moved to Southern California in 1998, was inspired by the beauty of the coastline to explore the multifaceted spirit of the ocean in his work. Kenyon’s paintings capture the force of the crashing surf and the subtle color fields that reflect the quality of light against sand and water.

Gallery Henoch is located at 555 W 25th St, New York, NY 10001. www.galleryhenoch.com.

Senior & Shopmaker Gallery, Inc.: “Vera Molnar: Drawings 1949-1986”

March 23 through May 12, 2018

In her second exhibition with Senior & Shopmaker Gallery, Inc., Vera Molnar will present “Drawings 1949-1986.”

Vera Molnar, a pioneer of computer art, was a founding member of the “Groupe de Recherche d’art Visuel” or GRAV, which espoused minimal, non-objective image making. Molnar, born in Budapest in 1924 but based in Paris since 1947, has created paintings, drawings, collages, computer drawings, photography and installation throughout her career. The exhibition will include computer drawings from 1968—when Molnar first introduced the computer into her work—through 1986, alongside a selection of pre-computer works on paper made between 1949 and 1970. With the computer, Molnar can investigate endless variations in geometric shape and line and still favor hazard and chance in the final work by programming “interferences” to offset predictable outcomes.

Senior & Shopmaker Gallery, Inc. is located at 210 11th Ave #804, New York, NY 10001. www.seniorandshopmaker.com.

DOWNTOWN

LMAKgallery: “Unmappings: Nayda Collazo-Llorens”

March 23 through April 29, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, March 23, from 6 to 8 p.m.

LMAKgallery will present “Unmappings: Nayda Collazo-Llorens,” a solo exhibition featuring new work by the artist.

Nayda Collazo-Llorens, an artist from Puerto Rico, creates work that explores the concepts of perception, navigation and mapping. Collazo-Llorens will present “Geo Dis/connect #4,” a wall installation that incorporates a sampling approach for which collected maps and charts have been sliced and remixed. The approximately 5- by 16-foot work, made up of 360 framed images showing a shifted and dislocated landscape, combines lunar charts with nautical and aeronautical charts of the Caribbean region, showing how scrambled cartographic data renders traditional navigation obsolete.

The artist will also present smaller, more intimate works on paper that investigate and survey a series of elusive coordinates as they drift in time and space. In a collection of marks, fictitious landmasses and found maps, charts, images and documents, the marks coexist with traces of remembered movements, invented sites, pseudo-science and shifted cartographic conventions that function as image and artifact.

LMAKgallery is located at 298 Grand St, New York, NY 10002. www.lmakgallery.com.

Fridman Gallery: “Matana Roberts: jump at the sun”

March 25 through April 25, 2018

Opening Reception: Sunday, March 25, at 5 p.m. Reception follows a talk with Christopher Stackhouse.

Fridman Gallery will present “Matana Roberts: jump at the sun,” the cross-disciplinary artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.

Defying what the artist calls “the colonization of form,” Matana Roberts will showcase new mixed-media collages made of objects, photographs, graphical scores and sound compositions. By assembling visual and musical works, Roberts illuminates personal histories against a broader national landscape. Her work, which she describes as “panoramic sound quilting,” continues the artist’s exploration of what it means to be a U.S. citizen and examines the human experience through constructs of memory, myth, make-believe and value. With assemblages that create a call-and-response relationship for viewers with a historical ecosystem, Roberts examines how the interpretations of individual experiences shift over time.

Fridman Gallery is located at 287 Spring St, New York, NY 10013. www.fridmangallery.com.

MIDTOWN

Sean Kelly Gallery: “Mariko Mori: Invisible Dimension”

March 24 through April 28, 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 22, from 6 to 8 p.m.

In her second exhibition with Sean Kelly Gallery, Mariko Mori will present new sculptures in “Invisible Dimension.”

Inspired by the mysteries of the universe, unobservable dark matter and energy, Mariko Mori will present seven new sculptures created with the most technically advanced methods currently available. Her sculptures, increased in scale and magnitude to a monumental size, reflect her research into superstring theory and particle physics and represent her speculation of how multiple hidden universes might be represented.

Sculptures inspired by the latest astrophysics theories or representing the beginning of the universe will be set up in pairs, except for the seventh, highlighting how collision and union of two elements create a new reality, like the Big Bang Theory or human procreation. Whether representing a different universe or the human spirit, the artist works to give form to realms that remain imperceptible in nature.

Sean Kelly Gallery is located at 475 10th Ave, New York, NY 10018. www.skny.com.

UPTOWN

Eykyn Maclean: “Whitney McVeigh: Elegy to Nature”

March 20 through April 20, 2018

Artist’s Reception: Tuesday, March 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. 

Eykyn Maclean will present “Whitney McVeigh: Elegy to Nature,” featuring paintings, drawings and found objects by the U.K.-based multimedia artist.

Whitney McVeigh’s solo exhibition will focus on ink on paper works, mainly made within the past three years. The artist has spent the last two decades traveling, reading, collecting and making to explore the human condition. During her travels to places such as Mexico, India, China, South Africa and Central Asia, McVeigh has amassed a huge number of found objects, each of which holds a small piece of history and fills her studio to serve as a backbone to the work she creates.

McVeigh’s works in “Elegy to Nature,” which she views as symbolic human landscapes, sit between painting and drawing, abstraction and figuration. With black ink on thick woven paper, the works depict mountainous forms, ships on the water and bodies at rest to explore the multifaceted aspects of nature.

Eykyn Maclean is located at 23 E 67th St, New York, NY 10065. www.eykynmaclean.com.
