  The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Jorge Joubert’s New York City exhibition “Empty Hole’. The exhibition runs  May 9th, through May 30th 2017. Joubert is searching for his path, his place in the world, his reason to exist, a question we often ask ourselves, “Why are we here?”.

His camera is the medium he uses to express his emotions, he takes a painstaking amount of time to plan and create each image. They reflect his search for an answer he may never get. It is his chosen route to self-knowledge and exploration.

Trickster in Flatland – Linda Lindroth at Simon|Garvey

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

The Simon|Garvey Gallery is pleased to present Trickster in Flatland – An exhibition of large scale photographs by Linda Lindroth that pay homage to an age of U.S. domestic manufacturing and art historical icons. The show will feature spatially transformative photographic work examining vivid ephemera produced during the height of domestic manufacturing in the United States. Although not dominant, the work intentionally possesses subtle environmental and political undertones. As the artist states: “… they hang as testimonies to a subservient industry, one now diminished as production moves to global markets only to return to us shrink-wrapped and encapsulated in plastic.”

Exhibition: March 1 – April 8, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 2, 6 – 8pm
Reception for the Artist: Thursday, March 16, 6 – 8pm
