Linden Line Magazine / Vol. 34 #3 / Otoño de 2015

Este número, correspondiente al Vol. 34 #3, del otoño de 2015, trae sorpresas. En primer lugar la colaboración del pintor y escritor Juan Abreu, residente en Barcelona, con su proyecto 1959, una serie de retratos de los fusilados en Cuba a partir de la llegada al poder de la Revolución. Los retratos de Abreu son extraordinarios y constituyen una denuncia a la barbarie instituida en la Isla por el castrismo. Abreu ha logrado algo difícil: aunar arte y denuncia política a un tiempo...

Gallery Space at Wagner / Elizabeth Yew



Date: 9/17/2015
Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Location: The Puck Building, Rice Conference Room / Newman Reception Area
295 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10012-9604  map

Join us in celebrating the opening of Fugitive Geometries: Quilts by Elizabeth Yew, the fall 2015 exhibition at the Gallery Space at Wagner. 

Curated by NYU Gallatin’s Ann Chwatsky and NYU Wagner’s Frankie Crescioni-Santoni, Fugitive Geometries features quilts and textile work by New York City artist Elizabeth Yew. Executed with traditional quilting patterns and techniques, the seven pieces comprising the exhibit span nearly 20 years and are powerful, vibrant representations of Yew's craftsmanship and exceptional panache for compositional and color juxtaposition. Homages to Chinese-American culture, childhood memory, and family life emerge as discernible themes of the exhibit.

Glass On Newsstands

The Fall 2015 edition of GLASS: The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly(#140) is hitting newsstands and subscriber mailboxes. On the cover is a work by French installation artist Baptiste Debombourg, who created a room with massive windows collapsing inward. Contributing editor Victoria Josslin presents a meditation on Debombourg's grand catastrophe in Aerial (a 2012 site-specific installation at the Brauweiler Abbey near Cologne, Germany), considering the scene as a frozen moment just after the impact of some cataclysmic explosion outside. In another Debombourg work, a fractured bus shelter titled Crystal Palace looks like a Paris landmark after a brutally destructive riot. As we are inundated with images and news of our increasingly tumultuous times, Debombourg's artifacts of unnamed violence tap into our collective unease and provoke not just reflection but, potentially, action. Josslin ponders whether it would be accurate to consider this work conceptual, or if it requires another term to encompass its multilayered yet open-ended impact on viewers.  
The Fall 2015 issue also examines WheatonArt's bold bid to elevate its visibility by drawing top name artist to Millville, New Jersey, for a project entitled "Emanation," a year-long creative collaboration with 11 artists including Judy Pfaff, Donald Lispky, Mark Dion, and Paula Hayes, to name just four. The "Emanation" museum opening coincided with the 2015 Glass Weekend event, and brought together the established glass collector world with a new kind of work in glass that might represent an exciting future direction for this arts organization that offers one of the most important residencies for up-and-coming artists.
