Koen van den Broek’s second solo exhibition with the Friedman Benda is titled Apex. In this body of large-scale work van den Broek uses the history of his own paintings as a reference point and conceives fresh commentaries on abstraction. He formally resolves his signature tension between the photographic and the painterly, transcending from referential and cerebral to the experiential and spiritual. A trained architect, van den Broek uses light, shape, and repetition to build generic structures, be it natural or man-made, through layering and the application of vibrant colors. Shadows cast by anonymous buildings, cracks in sun baked pavement, and lonely overpass bridges suggest human presence and a narrative long past. His preference for the casual and reflective aligns with Edward Hopper and Wayne Thiebaud.

Curator Lance Fung is pleased to announce that installations by artists Peter Hutchinson, Robert Lach and Jedediah Morfit will be added to the large, seven-acre ARTLANTIC: wonder site in 2013. The Hutchinson, Lach and Morfit interventions will complement the 2012 installations by Robert Barry, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, John Roloff and Kiki Smith and will include several of Peter Hutchinson’s famous “thrown rope” pieces, Robert Lach’s fiberglass bird’s nest installation and functional, cast aluminum furniture and gate by Jedediah Morfit. The new ARTLANTIC installations, which include Lach’s and Morfit’s first public art commissions, will be installed by July 2013.

Bernd Ribbeck’s work builds upon the geometric vocabulary and historical background of spiritual abstraction. Drawing from these influences, Ribbeck interlaces simple structures and color planes to produce images of faceted, seemingly infinite complexity. Confronted much like religious icons, these works speak to the possibility of the intangible, while their inherent material presence grounds the viewer in reality. In this exhibition, Ribbeck presents a newly developed series of India Ink drawings. Composed primarily of interlocking geometric forms, these works speak to the symbolic potential of ornamentation.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is thrilled to present An Awful Rainbow, an exhibition of new work by abstract painter, Paul Behnke. April 18 - May 18, 2013Inspired by an 1820 poem by English poet John Keats, which reads "Do not all charms fly/ At the mere touch of cold philosophy?/ There was an awful rainbow once in heaven/we know her... texture;" Paul Behnke's latest work is, first and foremost, an exercise in color.

The self-titled show in Mana’s first-floor gallery will feature more than 150 of Araki's works selected from a distinguished private collection, as well as a unique installation of 500 Polaroids. Arguably Japan's greatest living photographer—and certainly its most controversial—Araki's work is charged with intense sexuality. Known best for his intimate, snapshot style images of women in bondage (also known as kinbaku, the Japanese art of erotic rope-tying), Araki is an artist who reacts strongly to his emotions and uses photography to express them more fully.888 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ, 07306

In celebration of the publication of her book 365 DAYS: A CATALOGUE OF TEARS, Laurel Nakadate invites everyone who reads these lines to come to MoMA PS1 to CONFESS, DETAIL, and ATONE FOR SHAMEFUL ACTS OF THE PAST. These public apologies will stand in for more intimate acts of apology for the time being, and may result in feelings of well-being and relief for those who have been carrying around burdens, great and small.

Artists and tech gurus—two types of genius that have shaped the identity of the Bay Area—have historically had little in common. Even if city planners and citizens weren’t aware of the inherent dual personality of the region, they have found their man. New York-based artist Leo Villareal successfully mixes art and technology in a way that’s not forced or geeky. He has fused programmable LED lights and computer programming with what can only be called beauty to dazzle his host city, and not on a small scale. The biggest, brightest example of high-tech and high-art coming together happens to also be the biggest, brightest and most adored new public art installation in the Bay Area, and increasingly, the world: The Bay Lights.

The Independent is truly a unique art show. Now its third year, the event showcased works from 43 galleries, publishing houses, and performance spaces from the tri state area and beyond. Though the pieces were all for sale, there was a distinct feel throughout that the event was held for the enjoyment of the viewer and the magnificence of the art as opposed to being shown for the profit of the galleries.

For Jason Karolak, it is not “grease,” but “geometry,” that is the word. In his newest, untitled exhibition, Karolak focuses on different aspects of geometry, while also emphasizing color and contrast.

Robert Lango's Gang of Cosmos
By Anna Graves
in his 2014 New York Times review of the Whitney Biennial, art critic Holland Cotter declares a very clear disdain for Abstract Expressionism, calling it “overrated and pretentious, a bore.” He wonders why anyone would ever want to bother with it, except to “do some constructive damage.” Many, I’m sure, have had similar thoughts on the great mid-century movement – I myself have questioned its appeal on occasion. Thankfully, Gang of Cosmos, Robert Longo’s exhibition at Metro Pictures, provides a swift and breathtaking reminder of how powerful some of those compositions are, while igniting a conversation about the relationship between painting, drawing, and art history’s love affair with the popular movement.
