1. En este vídeo el comisario de la exposición Joao Fernandes y el artista Roman Ondák explican la intervención realizada por éste específicamente para el Palacio de Cristal (Parque del Retiro) donde se trata el cuestionamiento de la obra de arte en relación con las convenciones generadas por el lugar y el espacio en el cual se presentan.

    Para ello, el artista añade al edificio existente un nuevo elemento arquitectónico que se materializa en una pasarela elevada que ahora lo circunda. Esta pasarela, accesible desde el interior del Palacio, abre a todos los visitantes la posibilidad de una nueva mirada sobre el espacio.

  2. What happens when an artist doesn’t speak for himself? In a Tribeca loft, two friends of Debo Eilers discuss his sculpture and performance work, as the artist quietly observes in the background. For this film, Eilers has invited Loryn Hatch, a psychoanalyst, and Bosko Blagojevic, a writer and computer engineer, to meet for the first time and riff on the cultural associations in the hanging sculpture "Juice" (2011). For Blagojevic, Eilers's work—uncanny forms made with found objects and layered epoxy—evoke the "restless energy of teennagers." For Hatch, Eilers's performances—murky scenarios in which Eilers and other performers act out the role of the artist—provoke discomfort with their sexually charged themes. In past performance works, Eilers has asked others, such as Kaya, the teenage daughter of a friend, to direct his performances, creating an unsettling power dynamic between older male artist and young female performer. Through the course of being filmed, Blagojevic and Hatch's conversation becomes both an exploration of the artist’s work and an "outsourced" performance of that conversation in which the the traditional roles of artist and viewer are conflated and questioned. Featuring the sculptures "Juice" (2011), "Spoogoo" (2011), "Remaking" (2011); the sculptural group "Dolly(blue), Dolly(purple), Dolly(orange), Dolly(red), Dolly (yellow)" (2012); and the performances "KAYA" (2010) and "Carly" (2012).

  3. What if the Internet had a body? In his DUMBO studio, artist Daniel Gordon photographs paper collages constructed from found images downloaded from the Web. "I like to think about what I'm doing as an optimistic version of appropriation," says Gordon, who wonders if he can transport digital images into real life by giving them a physical form. The artist’s paper tableaus, rich in vibrant colors and vivid patterns, are transformed in the process of making a picture with large format cameras. "It's a fiction and a truth at the same time," says Gordon, whose early "Flying Pictures" series (2001–2004) created whimsical illusions of the artist in mid-flight. The film reveals the behind-the-scenes process of two of Gordon's recent works—a silhouette of Ruby Sky Stiler (the artist’s wife) and the still life "Blue Watermelon and Shell" (2013)—from photographing in the studio to the final printing process with Anthony Accardi at Green Rhino in Williamsburg. Also featuring the works "Toe Transplant" (2006), "Blue Face" (2010), "July 15, 2009" (2009), "Portrait in Orange and Blue" (2010), "Crescent Eyed Portrait" (2012), "Portrait in Yellow Orange and Blue" (2012), "Tropical Still Life" (2012), "Portrait with Blue Hair" (2013), "Still Life with Lobster" (2012), and "Still Life with Fish and Forsythia" (2013).

  4. Mark Moore Gallery announces Relics, the first solo show in the main gallery by LA-based painter, Feodor Voronov. A derivation from his trademark Word Paintings - first shown in the Project Room in 2012 – Voronov's newest works feature his emblematically bold color palette and obsessive mark making techniques, but stem from new source material. His vibrant abstractions of words and letters become monuments to his visual thought process and interest in the interconnectivity of language, thus acting as literal and figurative Relics of his practice.

    In the Project Room, Mark Moore Gallery presents New Work, the gallery's first solo exhibition by LA-based painter Lester Monzon. An ambitious display of nearly thirty new works, Monzon debuts his trademark tongue-in-cheek meditations on artistic taxonomy with alluring new compositions and timely critiques.
