Marcel Dzama’s latest film, Une danse des bouffons (or A jester’s dance), will have its American debut at David Zwirner in New York.

For her first exhibition at 303 and in a New York gallery, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster will present a new typology of works by revealing an unusual part of her personal archives from the mid-sixties until now, both intimate and social, both fetishistic and symptomatic: her personal clothing and textiles.
Current Viewing: Paintings Without Borders: Ned Vena at Real Fine Arts (New York) : Until April 19thSubmitted by Wayne on Mon, 2014-04-14 23:30.
What was that thing you were saying about too much of the art in New York being...decorative. As in "McMansion living room ready"? As in "made by a committee of well traveled art directors". Don't be so jaded. Gorge on the ironies. Capital G. Ned Vena's show at Real Fine Arts ( you can't allege that these kids don't have a deadpan sense of humor) does not duck the ironies flying everywhere. Ned Vena ran a business as a vinyl sign maker so he decided to repurpose images created by clients of his sign business in the form of these shaped canvasses. As the press release explicates,

With the staging of a massive Matthew Marks retrospective that spawls across the galleries at 502, 522, and 526 West 22nd Street, Michel Majerus' post-pop legacy is at maximum impact this season. After the Kunstmuseum Stuggart exhibition in 2012, an American institution was bound to pick up the mantle of Majerus' appropriation driven work. Matthew Marks certainly has not stinted on their platforming of the Berlin-based artist, whose promising career was cut short by a plane crash at age 35

“DISown – Not For Everyone,” is an art exhibition posing as a retail store. Or maybe it’s the other way around. As Karl Lagerfeld for H&M is a diffusion line for fashion, DISown is a diffusion line for art. Set as an examination of taste and consumerism, DISown presents a new model for cultural critique. Presenting products from over 30 world-renowned artists including Ryan Trecartin, Jon Rafman, Bjarne Melgaard, Amalia Ulman, Telfar and Hood By Air (HBA), DISown will be featured in a retail installation by artist Lizzie Fitch. Art collective DIS and curator Agatha Wara present the month long exhibition, starting March 6th at Red Bull Studio New York.

This show features a series of large-scale bronze and cast-concrete sculptures displayed variously on pedestals, and, at other times, installed directly on the floor. Characteristic of Lucas’s practice, the works simultaneously suggest multiple forms, as with the two monumental bronze works Florian and Kevin, which appear as both oversized vegetables and phallic-shaped sculptures. By confronting viewers with objects that are at once familiar and disorienting, Lucas proposes a reading of her work that seeks to subtly subvert socially constructed norms.
