Pop-up Exhibition in Arhus, Denmark with Gallery Poulsen

I love that Gallery Poulsen is always looking for ways to introduce us to new audiences. This week, they have arranged to participate in a pop-up show in Århus, Denmark.  I'll be showing new work alongside a few of my friends and favorite artists as well as Leonard Cohen(!). 

Taken (and slightly edited) from the gallery press release:

The project is launched by Golfillo - an art association of young artists – who provide a newly opened large space at Kystvejen in Århus, Jutland. The gallery is bringing a selection of it's artists to the the capital of Jutland in this amazing venue, situated in the vibrant center of the city Aarhus close to the creative vibe of Mejlgade, the exclusive residences at the waterfront and in the new and still growing innovative harbor area. 

The show will include works of Leonard Cohen, Jacob Dahlstrup, Debra Hampton, Aaron Johnson, Christian Rex van Minnen, Tom Sanford, Alfred Steiner and Jade Townsend.

Art for Art's Sake on view in Las Vegas, Nevada

Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation
January 30 – April 26, 2014

Examples of Debra's early work of abstract drip paintings will be included in this large, survey exhibition at the Barrick Museum at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The piece on view was acquired by the acclaimed Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation and has been included in several traveling exhibitions.

This particular exhibition features work by young, mostly American, artists who explore the potential of abstraction. Using the basic elements of pictorial art -- color, line, shape, texture -- they produce bold, exuberant compositions that appeal foremost to the eye. Most of the work was produced in the last 20 years, a cultural era dominated by the labyrinth of images on the Internet. In order to compete with this continual barrage of pictorial stimulation, these artists chose to tackle it head-on, creating works that confront the viewer with a complex field of visual information. Their art is complicated, convoluted, and opulent -- never sedate and always surprising.

Salon de Refuses opens at Artion Gallery, NY

Artion Galleries, New York
11/19/13- 12/21/13

Artion Galleries is pleased to present their first group show in their New York location. The Salon des Refusés is French for "Exhibition of Rejects," originally referring to the Paris Salon of 1863. Normally, this would refer to any exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show. This group of "rejects," however, are exhibited and held together by the glue that is Michael Anderson.

This Salon des Refusés  brings together a group of New York artists and longtime friends who produce uncomfortable work that is both beautiful and stimulating.

Artion Gallery is located at 275 Water Street.
The exhibition will be open Tuesday – Saturday, 12 – 6 pm
from November 19th – December 21st, 2013.
