"East River Studio" by Richard Pousette-Dart. Showing at Luhring Augustine in New York through December 17, 2011

I love Richard Pousette-Dart’s work.  If you do too, you need togo to Luhring Augustine in New York!  “East River Studio” is a series of works that was created between 1946 and 1951 while Pousette-Dart was living and working in a former brewery n East 56th Street in New York.  Many of the works in this exhibit have never been shown publicly before including several wire sculptures (see an example below).

Pipilotti Rist - Heroes of Birth

If you want to see a really cool exhibit, head over to Luhring Augustine in New York for Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist’s latest exhibit “Heroes of Birth.”  There are several video installations inside the gallery and they are sure to take your brain on a journey.  The main space of the gallery has an installation called “Layers Mama Layers” and it consists of a maze of translucent screens that hang from ceiling to floor with videos projected onto them.  It was awesome beyond words and these pictures can’t even come close to capturing how cool this exhibit is.

Massachusetts Chandelier

The room in the rear of the gallery (pun intended) has an installation called “Massachusetts Chandelier” and it is a chandelier made out of underpants with videos being projected onto it.  Again, it’s really awesome!

Layers Mama Layers

Luhring Augustine is located at 531 West 24th Street and “Heroes of Birth” by Pipilotti Rist runs until October 16, 2010.

Ragnar Kjartansson at Luhring Augustine now through August 13, 2010

When you walk into the Ragnar Kjartansson exhibit at Luhring Augustine in New York, your first thought is likely to be “WOW!”  On display are 144 paintings arranged from ceiling to floor by the Icelandic artist.  And that’s just the first part of the exhibit. A video installation is featured in the second exhibition area.  The most astonishing factoid about this exhibit is that these 144 paintings were created over a 6 month period in 2009 by the 33 year old artist!

Luhring Augustine is located at 531 West 24th Street and Ragnar Kjartansson’s works are on display until August 13, 2010.
