RESOUCE: Where Abstract Art Is (From)
Following up on the success of Source– a late spring show at The Halls that showcased the work of seven emerging artists, curators Melissa Staiger and Susan Ross worked with Rossana Martinez–intrepid pioneer of Gowanus and co-founder of Minus Space– to develop a little post exhibition Q & A with the artists– all self-defined abstractionists, all completely different.

Summer Show: Hunter Satellite 2D at The Halls at Bowling Green
Hunter Satellite 2D, a group show set to open July 15th. The show features work by recent graduates of CUNY’s Hunter College MFA program in Fine Art.
The work included is no more than two spatial dimensions–whether on paper, canvas, a video screen or merely in concept.
What you’ll see: the guerilla photography of Jess Levey; Allison Evans’ and Noah Landfield’s densely layered oils; and the surreal video ‘advertisements’ by Amy Brener–in addition to Jo Q. Nelson’s site specific conceptual pieces and new work from numerous other, brilliant emerging artists.

KAREN BAUSMAN: Manahatta Decompressed at 0.00156 Acres Art Space
“Untitled” with Photographers Jimmy Fountain and Catherine Kunkemueller

June 3 - July 9, 2010
In “Untitled” curator Erin Riley-Lopez brings together two technically superb photographers who capture the solitude, silence and poignance of a man-made world devoid of its human actors.
Two lone pillows stuffed uncomfortably on a motel closet shelf, a golden glow emanating from a Silver Stream trailer– Kunkemueller and Fountain amply demonstrate that beauty does exist in the quotidian, claustrophobic and creepy.
Karen Bausman: Envisioning the Wall at The Halls at Bowling Green
Manhattan’s 1811 Planning Commission gridded over timeworn Manhattan byways in a march toward orderly development. On the eve of the Commission’s work, Karen Bausman posits the question: without the geometry it imposed, what would navigation here be like? What if today’s routes from point to point were vastly more open-ended?
Bausman’s large-scale public installation The Wall Project invites spectators to engage such questions physically. The artist’s preliminary body of cut-paper assemblages and drawings questions the very notion what it is to occupy a space.
