Dan Walsh Curates "Innervisions" at IPCNY
Thursday, June 16, 2016 - Saturday, September 24, 2016

Pace Prints collaborator Dan Walsh curated an exhibition for the International Print Center New York titled Innervisions: New Prints 2016/Summer, on view June 16—September 24, 2016 at 508 West 26th Street, 5th Floor.

Walsh selected and installed works in the exhibition from a pool of over 2,000 submissions by roughly 800 artists. The exhibition features 54 works by 50 artists, including 31 artists exhibiting for the first time at IPCNY. Innervisions reflects the growing geographic reach of New Prints submissions, with artists exhibiting from 16 states and 10 countries.

About the exhibition, Dan Walsh writes: “Innervisions proposes the idea of how the medium of printmaking, for all its mechanical and physical methodologies, innately and naturally lends itself to express expansive and interior visions. The print has always attracted a certain kind of artist who is drawn to the macro/micro world of the plate or block, and especially the process. This group of fifty artists is no exception. Their approach to the practice is from a variety of perspectives, which reflects today’s environment of diverse interests and non-hierarchical thinking.”

Jean-Michel Basquiat, "Flexible" (1984/2016), 24-Color Screenprint, 60 ¼ x 45 ½ inches, Edition of 85
New Release from the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat
Tuesday, June 7, 2016

The Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat is pleased to announce the release of a new 24-color Basquiat screenprint titled Flexible (1984/2016), published by Flatiron Editions. The edition of 85 will be available exclusively through Pace Prints starting on June 7, 2016 at 11:00am EDT.

Flexible, based on a panel painting created in Basquiat’s Venice, California studio in 1984, portrays the griot—a storyteller, entertainer, and purveyor of oral history from West African culture. Referencing the artist’s exploration of and struggle with the role of artist-as-everyman, his interest in imagery from earlier cultures, an affinity for historical and contemporary black figures and an x-ray view into internal organs, Flexible conveys an examination of identity. Basquiat’s signature broad, aggressive brush strokes and flat areas of color both reveal and conceal previous layers of paint and imagery, framing one of the artist’s most arresting and iconic figures.

The posthumous release is stamped and signed by Lisane Basquiat and Jeanine Heriveaux, the artist’s sisters and administrators of the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Flexible (1984/2016) will be available at Pace Prints Gallery, 521 West 26th Street, New York, NY and via email starting at 11:00am on June 7, 2016. Priority will be given to in-person requests. For remote requests, please email basquiat@paceprints.com starting at 11:00:00am EDT with your name, billing address and telephone number. Requests will be confirmed via phone in the order in which the emails are received. Emails with a timestamp before 11:00:00am EDT on June 7 will not be honored. The edition will be released at $40,000 USD with tiered pricing. A non-refundable deposit of $5,000 USD is required to secure the purchase and payment must be made in full by July 29, 2016. Packing, framing and shipping not included.

Jean-Michel Basquiat was born in Brooklyn, New York on December 22, 1960. He began his career making street art composed of enigmatic writings on buildings and walls in downtown Manhattan in the late 1970s. His work quickly rose to the spotlight, and by the early 1980s he gained the attention and acclaim of galleries and museums internationally. In what is often classified as a neoexpressionist style, Basquiat drew on social and political themes like systematic racism, identity politics and commodity culture. The artist died at the age of 27 on August 12, 1988 in his studio on Great Jones Street in New York City. Major exhibitions include “Jean- Michel Basquiat: Paintings 1981–1984,” Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (1984; traveled to Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, through 1985); Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (1987, 1989); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1993; traveled to Menil Collection, Houston; Des Moines Art Center, Iowa; and Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, Alabama, through 1994); “Basquiat,” Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York (2005; traveled to Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, through 2006); and Fondation Beyeler, Basel, Switzerland (2010; traveled to Musée d’art moderne de la ville de Paris); and “Now is the Time” at the Art Gallery of Ontario (2015; traveled to the Guggenheim Bilbao in 2015). A major exhibition of his work is scheduled for 2017 at the Barbican Centre in London.

Shahzia Sikander: Ecstasy as Sublime, Heart as Vector
Wednesday, June 22, 2016 - Sunday, October 23, 2016

The National Museum of XXI Century Arts (MAXXI) in Rome, Italy will host Shahzia Sikander: Ecstasy as Sublime, Heart as Vector, curated by Hou Hanru and Anne Palopoli. The exhibition will be on view from June 22-October 23, 2016.

In the exhibition, Shahzia Sikander observes the present through the lens of the imagination, symbols, literature and history of diverse cultural traditions. Her rich, complex oeuvre is housed for the first time in an Italian museum with this exhibition that shows the artist’s work from 1990’s to the present day.

The artist will create a layout specifically for the museum with over 30 works in various media and idioms, from drawing to miniatures referring to the Indo-Persian tradition and from video to digital animation. Included are works born from critical thinking and inquiry of historical, literary and political positions that delineate the inherent complexity of universal themes ranging from the pre-colonial to the post-colonial, geopolitical changes, migration, cultural quarantine and the birth of nations and religion and ultimately human identity.

James Turrell Revisits His Early Experiments With Light

James Turrell was featured in the Wall Street Journal for his exhibition of landmark light projections, currently on view in 67 68 69 at two Pace Gallery locations through June 18, 2016. The artist discusses his early experimentation with optics and perceptual psychology, which were seminal to the creation of subsequent works including Roden Crater in the Painted Hills region of the San Francisco volcanic field, Aten Reign at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and over 80 Skyspaces internationally.

"'Light is different than we normally see it,' Mr. Turrell said of ways the eye and mind can be tricked or misled. 'There are glimpses, when you see light and it has its own presence.' But more often, we tend to take light for granted or look through it rather than at it..."

An exhibition of prints by James Turrrell will be on view concurrently at both Pace Prints locations through June 11, 2016.

Inka Essenhigh at the Frist Center
Inka Essenhigh at the Frist Center
Friday, May 27, 2016 - Sunday, October 9, 2016

The Frist Center in Nashville, Tennessee will host an exhibition of paintings and monotypes by Inka Essenhigh, created over the past decade. Between Worlds will exhibit the artist's ethereal figures and dreamlike environments in which boundaries are melted: interior becomes exterior; solid becomes fluid; the sensual overlaps with the absurd; plant becomes human; and clarity and mystery coexist.

Essenhigh's cast of characters and their settings are meant to present the possibility of existence outside of body and mind, yet the dream-like images have links to reality, reflecting time spent between lower Manhattan and rural Maine. While the images have connections with mysticism and folklore, they also serve as a reminder of the beauty of the natural world.

Between Worlds will be on view at the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery May 27–October 9, 2016.
