So it begins...

A Review by Maria Kozak (MFA 2011)
It’s the first week of school as well as the start of high season in NYC.
Welcome to fall.
Jean-Pierre Roy, A Wind Toward Off Dreams

On Thursday night, Sept 9th, A Rational Spectacle opens at Rare Gallery in Chelsea featuring the work of NYAA's adjunct faculty member Jean Pierre Roy. Roy's luminescent dystopian landscapes explore the nature of light and new meanings of truth and beauty. Concurrent with his solo show, Roy's monumental painting Landscape or Questioning...(2009), will be on view as part of a group exhibition that opens the following night at Allen Nederpelt in Brooklyn.

Jennifer Steinkamp, Premature 9

Also in Chelsea Jennifer Steinkamp opens at Lehmann Maupin. The LA based artist is known for her projected installations that create kinetic, illusionistic environments. This time she turns her attention to systems of the human body.

The show features controversial stills from his film, "Los Penetrados" (The Penetrated), an examination of cultural psychologies of domination and submission as they relate to labor, race, gender, and class.

Saturday night Sept 11th, Andrew Edlin gallery in Chelsea will have it’s third solo show of Henry Darger’s work. The show will consist of early collages and works never before seen in The Realms of the Unreal. The opening will include a performance by the band The Vivian Girls at 8pm.
