WANGECHI MUTUClosing Sunday March 9
Dangerous Beauty—the Darker Side of Wangechi Mutu
by Jai Imbrey
Not all is well in the jungle. Just beneath the polished surface of jewels, inlays, nodules of glowing lights, and sinuous crouching women, Kenyan born Wangechi Mutu’s images reveal an unforgiving hard-edged cruelty. Despite the luxurious use of decoupage and her innate sense of radiant color, Mutu’s work is possessed of a recalcitrant reptilian hardness.
The sinister underbelly of her art recalls the moment in Life of Pi... ...more
ROBIN F. WILLIAMSClosing Saturday March 15
P.P.O.W is pleased to present Robin F. Williams’ second solo exhibition at the gallery entitled Sons of the Pioneers. Through a series of paintings Williams challenges the roles of American masculinity and traditional portraiture by replacing the idyllic female, or odalisque, with romanticized scenes of men in various states of idleness. The narratives depicted circle around an inverted version of manifest destiny wherein men abandon their conquests and choose stillness, allowing the next fronti... ...more
SARAH CAINClosing Saturday March 15
Galerie Lelong is pleased to present Sarah Cain’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Featuring a new body of mixed-media works on canvas and a site-specific installation, Cain further expands her exploration of painting and space through her use of disparate materials ranging from beads, safety pins, Mylar balloons, paint rollers, and other found objects. Cain’s spirited paintings recontextualize our understanding of traditionally perceived limits of painting, sculpture, and installation... ...more

MARY MCINTYREReception Friday March 14, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Amusing, joke-like messages are written across the work. 'Your love is better than ice cream', 'life is a garbage sandwich', 'no happy ending today'.
Matching the captions and quotations with the drawings was a great deal of 'fun' for the artist, who often thinks in terms of 'entertainments' and who, despite the many set-backs in her life, attempts to remain firmly optimistic and joyful in her outlook. She delights in the 'gorgeous' and 'beautiful' and in many respects these paintings are a t... ...more

MARK MANDERSOpening Sunday March 9
Mark Manders opens his 2012 volume "Reference Book" with the following note: “… I will continue to work on this self-portrait, because that’s what it really is, and you are invited to trace it as long as you are alive”.
Found, re-constructed or better still re-invented objects are placed side by side with elements created by the artist in compositions which continuously and kaleidoscopically reveal novel organic constellations. These juxtapositions create a narrative, like the pages of a diar... ...more
