Blind Trust
Friday May 22nd, 7pm-9pm

But is it Art?
May 5th - May 15th
Con Artist Collective

Taking one of contemporary art’s most pressing questions as its title, this group show at the Con Artist Collective addresses the current atmosphere of our post-painting, post-postmodern art world. With an emphasis on mixed-media work that employs non-traditional materials and methods, “But is it Art?” examines the sometimes violent shift away from classical modes and features artists as bold in the visions they build as they are ruthless in the rules they break. Curated by Josef Pinlac, “But is it Art?” includes work by Justin Aversano, Carolyn Colsant, Sessa Englund, James Gardella, Daniel Lamanna, Winter Mendelson, Maria Petrovskaya, Josef Pinlac, Bree Rubin, Audrey Ryan, Heather Marie Scholl, Alex Williams and Shaina Yang.
Exhibition is FREE.

Masterpieces & Curiosities:
Nicole Eisenman's Seder
Fourth Offering in New Exhibition Series
Exploring Works from the Jewish Museum
Opens March 13, 2015 through August 9, 2015
The Jewish Museum

Showcasing a painting commissioned by the Jewish Museum in 2010, Masterpieces & Curiosities: Nicole Eisenman's Seder continues a series of exhibitions focused on individual works in the Museum's world-renowned collection. On view from March 13 to August 9, 2015, this exhibition presents Eisenman's painting Seder with over 25 seldom seen yet important portraits by such artists as Jules Pascin, Theresa Bernstein, Raphael and Moses Soyer, and Edouard Vuillard that help illuminate her painterly approach and chosen subject. The diverse breadth of techniques and styles used in these works will demonstrate how Eisenman looks to the past as inspiration for her unique narratives of 21st century life. Also included is a selection of Passover Seder plates from the Museum's collection, ranging from the 18th to 21st centuries.

The fourth show in the Masterpieces & Curiosities series, Nicole Eisenman's Seder differs from previous installations. Rather than analyze the content and subjects of the painting, the exhibition will look at the connections between this contemporary work and the portraits. These paintings represent different time periods, places, and styles, while also revealing the continuous exploration and evolution of Jewish identity. They detail the political and social history of the past hundred years through the portrayal of individuals ranging from the aristocrat to the anonymous burgher to the artist. Through this varied display of artworks in dialogue, Seder can be seen as responding to and advancing a storied visual and material tradition of Jewish culture.

On Thursday, March 26 at 6:30pm, Nicole Eisenman will speak with Joanna Montoya Robotham about Seder. This program is part of Writers and Artists Respond, a series of thought-provoking discussions and performances led by artists, musicians, and writers in the Museum's exhibition galleries. The discussion is free with Pay-What-You-Wish Admission; RSVP Recommended.

Michael Zelehoski:
New Order
May 7 – June 20, Opening May 7, 6-8 PM
Mike Weiss Gallery

Mike Weiss Gallery is pleased to present New Order, the first solo exhibition by Michael Zelehoski with the gallery. Zelehoski takes found three-dimensional objects like pallets and police barricades and restructures them into two-dimensional space. The resulting works are not mirrors of the objects but instead examine and challenge the selective process of human perception in its most abstract and creative tendencies. By working somewhere in between the separate domains of sculpture’s core dimensionality and painting’s historical flatness, Zelehoski’s work also mixes in the formalist ethos of emphasizing composition. The exhaustive process of metamorphosis in Zelehoski’s work fluidly moves between fully-formed objects and binary abstraction, pursuing the possibilities and intricacies of perception.
