Re: Art Show is an ever-evolving group exhibition located at 630 Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, on the 5th Floor. Housed within the spaces of the former Pfizer pharmaceutical factory, Re: Art Show introduces a new structure to the exhibition format, with no set duration, multiple openings, and a dynamic environment.

The show intends to redefine what an exhibition is and how it functions. It aims to meet ever-expanding ideas with an ever-expanding exhibition, thereby creating an amoebic hive of creativity, collaboration, and experimentation that travels with each included artist through a duration of their creative practice.

FLORENCIA ESCUDERO &
DALIA AMARA AT SELENA GALLERY


October 22—November 12, 2016
Opening reception: October 22, 7-10 pm

Selena Gallery
37 Troutman St. #3 Brooklyn, NY 11206






Selena Gallery presents Skin Dips, an exhibition featuring work by Dalia Amara and Florencia Escudero.Skin Dips brings work together by two Brooklyn based artists exploring female phantoms, absence, and anthropomorphism. Amara and Escudero transmit a feminine Lynchian vista utilizing photograph and sculpture. Through anthropomorphism, objects and spaces create fantasies referencing the human body. These works emit female beauty terror, the body scrutinized and objectified, which is transmitted into domestic space. The materials used in these creations range from makeup, fake flowers, and sex toys: objects that occupy a place between disgust and desire, banality and trauma. The spaces explored inthe making of the works range from personal interior space to obscure motels, creating a converging of close private space public space. The presence of the artist’s hand becomes visible in their works through the performative making and positioning of objects in these space.

Selena is an artist run space co-founded by Anjuli Rathod and Olivia Swider.
Exhibitions are on view for openings and thereafter by appointment only.









DREA COFIELD’S MURAL
“RISE & GRIND” AT IDEAL GLASS


Drea Cofield featured in Precog Vol. 2: Techno S

Opening Reception: Sept 16, 6:30—10 pm
22 E. 2nd St, New York, NY 10003






Join us this Friday September 16th for the opening of our new mural “Rise and Grind”, by Drea Cofield. The New York based artist conceived the mural to address notions of intimacy, and more particularly the idea of scaling up works initially conceived as expressive yet confidential experiences. With this piece her intention is to shift towards a more composed, graphic, and physically immersive encounter for the viewer. “Rise and Grind” is both a private confrontation and a larger visceral exploration for passersby. “It’s bacchanalian and violent and altogether human.”

Cofield’s work involves figures interacting– or pointedly not interacting–in other worldly landscapes. Bodies are sleeping or dead, facial expressions and gestures are enacted incongruously with violence and spectacle. Cofield explores the challenging language of allegory to see, experience and feel.
