The Yard: Williamsburg Bridge

The Yard presents Intrinsic: Contemporary Fiber Art by Melissa Joseph, Sienna Martz, Kesiena Onosigho, Sarah G. Sharp, and Aricoco Tabei curated courtesy of Audra Lambert of ANTE.Mag.

Materiality, texture, and labor are shared qualities that fiber artists recognize as critical to their practice. This exhibition at the Yard Williamsburg Bridge explores the medium of Fiber Art through the lens of contemporary artists working with fiber, cloth, textile, fabric, and embroidery. Artists on view work across themes including the role of labor as intrinsic to the creation of their practice and labor distribution in society, economic and racial disparity, and vegan lifestyle. Visitors are invited to come examine the links between these diverse abstract artworks, which embrace both natural and geometric forms, weighing the balance between nature, society, and the built environment.

Intrinsic will be on view at The Yard: Williamsburg Bridge (195 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY) through mid- October 2020. Please check back for additional event information for this show.

The Yard: Williamsburg

Kirstin Lamb Curatorial, Jordan Hutton, and The Yard: Williamsburg are pleased to present The Rainbow / Prism Show. Soft opening on September 9th, this show will run until November 10th, 2020. This show was a long time coming, starting online on March 23rd right at the beginning of the pandemic and finally installed at The Yard this September. Artists’ work will be available online at Kristen Lamb’s website throughout the run of the show, and in-person by appointment with Jordan Hutton (914-393-0253, jordant.hutton@gmail.com). There will be no opening event for the show, but we hope folks will make time to come see the show in person, we are delighted by the installation.

The Rainbow / Prism Show for me was an exploration of artists we admire working almost exclusively with rainbow and color imagery. It allowed us to look at their practices through the lens of a colorist, something that frequently feels self-indulgent, but shouldn’t. Color is important. The beauty and pleasure of color is a deep and lovely thing, revel in it, and find peace, joy, complexity.

Featured works by: Jen Shephard, Kelli Thompson, Hayley Youngs, Leigh Tarentino, Kirstin Lamb Studio, Alessandro Keegan, Leah Montalto.

This exhibition is currently on view at The Yard: Williamsburg, Floor 2 (33 Nassau Ave, Brooklyn, NY). Please reach out to the curators above to visit the show or learn more information on the works!

The Yard: Lower East Side

IFAC Arts and The Yard Lower East Side present Screams From My Bicycle, Paintings by Brian Leo. Screams From My Bicycle incorporates 70 brightly colored paintings of expressive cartoonish forms and appropriated images which draw a broad narrative on the deconstruction of personal identity, current events, social issues, and contemporary culture. The intimately sized artworks unite into a mass accumulation of images. Seemingly innocent visual clusters akin to an infinite scroll of clickbait, popup news, entertainment, and advertising create non-linear dreamscapes of our collective unconscious and the spectacle of 21st century American life.

Leo will be available for appointments while the show is on view allowing visitors to dive deeper into a dialogue with the artist at The Yard. For more information and to schedule an appointment please contact: nyc@ifac-arts.com or by phone at 646-863-1009.

Screams From My Bicycle is currently on view at The Yard: Lower East Side, Floors 2-3 (85 Delancey Street, New York, NY).

The Yard: Herald Square

ABSTRKT presents Slant by Martyna Szczęsna, organized by Sarah Han.

A slant is a slope, angle, or particular perspective — an inescapable bias inherent in each unique schema. These biases are constantly interacting whether in command or in chaos, and the chaos is where Szczęsna finds nuanced paintings in raw, unhindered output.
In Slant, Szczęsna presents a small-scale survey of works made over the past four years, wherein public spaces have been recontextualized as boundless canvases of layered and hasty scrawlings left behind by covert bodies, collaborating on streets, construction/demolition sites, public parks et al. Using a number of depictive strategies; photographs, sculptures, and installations to probe the nature of heterotopic spaces, Szczęsna has sought to depict the way collective desires and ideologies are writ large. In doing so she questions the foundational principles and mythologies of this country.

Slant is currently on display at The Yard: Herald Square, Floor 2 (106 W. 32nd Street, New York, NY).

The Yard: Bryant Park

Curator, Steven Torrisi presents Equanimity, a solo exhibition featuring works by M.Clark.

Equanimity is a state of psychological stability and composure which is undisturbed by experiences that may cause others to lose the balance of their mind. It’s likely that many of us have contemplated the importance of equanimity, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, this is the essence of M. Clark’s creations. Her manipulation of heat and pressure to adhere to metallic foil on various surfaces- bringing to light dynamic conversations between constancy and chaos. The pieces reflect light in diffused patterns, producing a shifting luminosity unique to her work while complementing the stunning Bryant Park office space.

Equanimity will be on view at The Yard: Bryant Park, 3rd Floor, through early October 2020. Please check back for more information on upcoming events surrounding this exhibition.

The Yard: Center City 

InLiquid Art + Design presents Carbon Snaps with works by Ellen Lana Abraham, Kelliane McCarthy, Jen McCleary, Robert Solomon, and Donna Sensor Thomas.

Critical Junctures need a special cohesion. A five-headed hydra held together with Carbon Snaps, these artists create a holographic mirror hybrid of representation and abstraction. Hidden connections, stardust songs, and power pyramid plants whisper a cyphered narrative for our new epoch.

This exhibition will be on view through early December 2020 at The Yard: Center City, Floors 2-5 (21 S. 11th Street, Philadelphia, PA). Please check back for more information on events surrounding this exhibition.

The Yard: Eastern Market

The Yard presents Saturation, a group artist exhibition featuring works by Heather Lynn, Sweta Shah, Meg Biram, and Michelle Izquierdo. This show was produced in partnership with Client Raiser and was guest curated by The Yard’s Head of Art Program, Michaeline Sander.

“Saturation can speak to the deep rich palettes found within these works, but also doubly connects with this moment in our history as a nation and culture. It is the one word that best describes how I personally feel about the 24-hour news cycle, social media, and the world of politics that no one can escape. We have all reached this point of saturation. With this show, I hope you are able to take a moment to find a breath in these beautiful works by studying their technique and considering the emotions they evoke within you.”

This exhibition is currently on view through January 15, 2021, at The Yard: Eastern Market. Please check back for future events around this exhibition!

A R E A at The Yard presents c/o (displacement) a solo exhibition by artist Kristen Mallia. A word from the artist on the below work in the show, “A glitch is a momentary disruption that can shift alignments, alter perspective, and generate interference both in form and energy. The layering of photographic images further complicates visual information, resulting in altered realities and dream-like meditations. Multiple Exposures (Iceland Series) explores temporal, geographical, and emotional displacement as daily ritual, informed by the Icelandic landscape from Feb 01 — April 30, 2020.”

This exhibition is currently on view at The Yard: Back Bay. Please reach out to the location or A R E A for more details on the show and how to visit!
