Gerson Zevi's platform connects talented young artists, curators and collectors and gives them a place in the art world, and the Land Art Road Trip is the gallery's boldest, most ambitious venture yet. In two white vans with trailers on their backs, Gerson and Zevi drove 30 international artists, writers, and creatives between the ages of 20 and 32 across half the country.
"This is This" is a show of works by three members of Red Hook's Still House Group (Zachary Susskind, Brendan Lynch, Nick Darmstaedter), artists who have been involved in the collective's Group Residency Program (Grayson Revoir, Alex Da Corte), and works by Darren Bader, Mark Flood, and N. Dash. Each artist looks for meanings in appropriation and different solutions to the contradictions that arise from the use of ordinary objects in art.
A prelude to the unveiling of its Chelsea Space, last night uptown Hauser & Wirth opened "The Flowering of Phantoms," Anj Smith's second show with the gallery. Smith told Interview of the show's title, "It relates to the way language operates, with new meanings constantly evolving from old ones, and the implications this instability has for communication and belonging."
