The New York Times article "New York Art Galleries: What to See Right Now," highlights concurrent exhibitions Refiguring the Future at 205 Hudson Gallery (through March 31) and Refiguring Binaries at Pioneer Works (through April 21).
Bronx-based artist Ronny Quevedo uses a mix of traditional and found materials, and employs a rigorous process for mark-making and embossing. Patterns and marks in Quevedo's mixed media works derive from sporting fields, indigenous land works, pre-Columbian textiles, and constellations, all suggestive of shared histories of migration.
The exhibition is on view March 7 – April 27, 2019. An artist talk is scheduled for April 17; click “learn more” for details.
The Armory Show, March 7 – 10, 2019: Pier 94, Booth P7
In our second year at The Armory Show, we are proud to present Rodrigo Valenzuela's series American-type, recently exhibited at Light Work and concurrently on view at the Orange County Museum of Art. Using a labor-intensive process that the artist calls a "performance for the camera", Valenzuela questions American culture's attraction to simplified representation.
For our second year at Material, Upfor presents new work by gallery artists Ronny Quevedo and Rodrigo Valenzuela, as well as a recent collaboration between Quevedo and Harold Mendez. All three are friends and peers from their CORE Fellowships in Houston, and they share interests in the politics of immigration, undefined spaces that are charged with political history, and an affinity for multidisciplinary methods of making that employ, and question, traditions of objective representation.
In March, Ronny Quevedo's debut solo exhibition with Upfor opens in our Portland gallery, and we present a solo booth of Rodrigo Valenzuela's work at The Armory Show.
