Five Galleries To See In Brooklyn This July

Luhring Augustine
A New Sculpture
Christopher Wool
25 Knickerbocker Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11237
May 17 – August 10, 2018
Open Wednesday-Friday, 11AM-5:30PM and by Appointment

A new plated steel sculpture by Christopher Wool, paired with an older sculpture and five etchings, continues the artist’s gestural and linear exploration of space—its calligraphic forms as much a reference to outside influences like ranching wire on his property in Texas as to his own established vocabulary of tangled contours.

M23/Project Room
Brian Dario, Liza Lacroix, Vladislav Markov
June 30 – July 29, 2018
120 Waterbury Street
Brooklyn, NY  11206
Open Saturday 1-6pm and by Appointment Monday

M23 presents recent works by three artists: In Brian Dario’s “Foam,” recently exhibited at Stereo, Warsaw, eighteen unpaired gloves are stacked in irregular and incomplete order; Liza Lacroix’s “Untitled” evokes strata of tar; and Vladislav Markov’s “xC,” ( toilet paper dipped in gasoline) coils in a state at once wry and dangerous.

Cupping the Counter
Yevgeniya Baras, Peter Gallo, Hanna Hur, Charles Mayton, Keith J. Varadi
June 30 – July 29, 2018
Open Sunday, 1pm-6pm and by Appointment
1078 Dekalb Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11221

Eight paintings by five artists comprise Cupping the Counter, which operates between formal contemporary painting, striving to exceed and reaffirm the canvas, and a socio-political standpoint of ineffectuality and protest — (“We need new critics,” is scrawled across a painting by Peter Gallo, while the New York Times T shimmers in uncertain disillusion in Keith J. Varadi’s “Neolib Ad Lib”.

315 Gallery
Running Towards the Sun
Guadalupe Maravilla, Grace Rosario Perkins, Efraín Rozas
July 10 – August 5, 2018
312 Livingston Street
Brooklyn, NY 11217
Open Wed-Sun, 12-5pm, and by Appointment

Three artists utilize indigenous traditions and personal approaches to confront global, social, and geographical issues in Running Towards the Sun, which doubles as exhibition title and the subject for Grace Rosario Perkins’ painting of the same name. Ritual also serves as a point-of-inquiry in Efraín Rozas’ robotic, improvisational instruments, and in Guadalupe Marvilla’s totemic installation. (Drawings by Marvilla are currently on view in Pacha, Llaqta, Wasichay: Indigenous Space, Modern Architecture, New Art at the Whitney Museum through Sep 30).
