1. James Kalm crosses the line (into Queens) to check out the inaugural exhibition at the new Valentine Gallery. For the last four years, the Bushwick pioneer Fred Valentine has presented a diverse selection of art works, representing some of communities' most accomplished artists. With this move east, Valentine kicks off with the ephemeral acrylic paintings of Bobbie Oliver. Curated by Mary-Ann Monforton, Editor of BOMB Magazine. These paintings are influenced by Chinese Sumi ink landscapes with their the restrained and spontaneous application of delicate, puddles, stains and washes of pigment. With an extreme sensitivity to the medium, and using gravity, osmosis, and other forces of nature, Oliver exhibits paintings that appear to have come into existence on their own, with only a hint of "guidance" from the artist. Despite their restraint, echoes of hazy landscapes, and misty scenes of indistinguishable objects, seem to float to the surface of observability. This video was recorded in Ridgewood Queens September 25, 2015.

  2. James Kalm pops into the Berry Campbell Gallery to take in a viewing of the paintings of Dan Christensen. Dan Christensen (1942-2007) was in the forefront of Lyrical Abstraction, the oft maligned movement occurring in the early 1970s that saw itself as a resistant form of art that sought to reestablish painting as intellectually valid, and counter the hegemonic dominance of Minimalism. Christensen is admired within the New York painting community for his fearless experimentation, bold gesture, and poignant color sense. This exhibition features works ranging from the mid 1960s to the mid 2000s. The Gallery tour was recorded on September 17, 2015. A musical introduction is provided by Frank Picarazzi, and was recorded live at Union Square.

Auf mehreren LED-Bildschirmen sind Videoclips in Dauerschleifen zu sehen sowie Leckeys neuer Film. Der Maler ALESSANDRO RAHO steuert eine Art ‚Familienbildnisse’ bei, die im Grafischen Kabinett gezeigt werden. EMILY ROYSDON entwickelte mit Comedy of Margin Theatre eine räumliche Inszenierung, deren Charakter zwischen Installation und Bühne oder Performanceraum bewusst offen bleibt. „Lebendigkeit überschreitet Grenzen, ist sich ihrer Randständigkeit nicht bewusst“, „performe als ungelöstes Problem“ und „eine Struktur, in der Leben möglich ist“. 11. Sep. – 1. Nov. 2015
