APRIL PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

ADULTS
Studio Salon: Neither Here nor Now with Adam Pendleton and Ralph Lemon
Thursday, April 28, 7–9PM

Join Triple Canopy and The Studio Museum in Harlem to celebrate the publication of On Value, a multifarious book about the value of ephemeral artworks, and the labor and bodies that make them. Adam Pendleton, On Value contributor, will be joined by choreographer and artist Ralph Lemon, who co-edited On Value alongside Triple Canopy. Lemon and Pendleton will discuss how they have each sought to transpose live events, whether dance performances or charged historical events, into publishable forms such as essays, visual artifacts, and print books.

THINGS WE LOVE

Shows to see this month: Noah Purifoy: Junk Dada at The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH closes April 10; Ebony G. Patterson’s Invisible Presence: Bling Memoriesat Atlanta Contemporary, Atlanta, GA closes April 21; Kerry James Marshall: Mastry at MCA Chicago, Chicago IL opens on April 23.

On May 5–8, 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair will head to Brooklyn for its second year! A reference to fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent, the title of 1:54 establishes the parameters of the fair’s ethos: as a platform that strives to represent multiplicity and showcase the diversity of contemporary African art and cultural production on an international stage. Don’t miss it!

Cheri 1Cheri 2

L. “Facelift” Oil on Canvas, Michael Delaney – R. “Painted Shoes”, Will Roberson

The two artists featured in “Beauty” at Cheri, Micheal Delaney and Will Roberson, create a unique pairing.  They work in disparate materials but each with a chic sophistication. Michael’s compositions reference the painters of the Italian Renaissance and honestly present beauty in its most raw form while Will’s creations are a throw back to a much more recent time when street art and high fashion merged in New York City.

Reception: Wednesday, March 16, 6-9pm
Exhibition: February 26 – March 31, 2016
Location: Cheri, 231 Lenox Avenue, New York
Featured Artists: Michael Delaney and Will Roberson
RSVP
