(New York, USA)
Nara Roesler New York presents “Cross-cuts”, an exhibition curated by Luis Pérez-Oramas unfolding in five different installations to inaugurate the gallery’s new location in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, on view from January 12 through February 13, 2021. The show was envisioned as a means to focus on the richness and variety of the Roesler portfolio by highlighting nine significant artists: Antonio Dias, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Berna Reale, Cristina Canale, Karin Lambrecht, Maria Klabin, Milton Machado, Artur Lescher, and Tomie Ohtake.
‘Cross-cuts proposes chapters focusing on a specific body of work by an individual artist or a conversation between two or three artists. We believe in an open-minded observation of art capable of discovering, through meaningful juxtapositions, in a comparative and analogical way, new meanings that could amplify their aesthetic and political resonance,’ states Luis Pérez-Oramas, Senior Curatorial Director. Each of the exhibition’s installations addresses outstanding issues that concern contemporary art in both Brazil and the United States.
In the second week, Berna Reale was one of the participating artists. Now, from January 26th to 30th, Maria Klabin is exhibited alongside Cristina Canale, and Karin Lambrecht. The three artists are entirely committed to the medium of painting, also addressing in their works the various artistic extensions that can be drawn from the painterly function, from the amplitude of scales and the use of mixed media, to the installative dimension of their practice.
