"52 Artists We Like: group show"
2000-05-25 until 2000-08-29
Wall Street Viewing Room
New York, NY, USA United States of America

The Wall Street Viewing Room, an alternative exhibition space in the Wall Street District, is pleased to present an inaugural group show, 52 Artists We Like. This exhibition has been curated by Margaret Bodell and Caroline Kerrigan and features a select group of artists - from nascent to established talents. Artwork in nearly every medium will be explored, including sculpture, photography, video, textile art, drawing and painting.

Highlights of the show include:
-A painting from Lisa Krivacka's 'Most Likely to Succeed' series, which stars high school students from Clarksville, TN in the 1970's, and which addresses the awkward time that is the cusp of adulthood. Krivacka became a national sensation with her last show, Wish You Were Here which included paintings of travel postcard-style hotel rooms and highways

-Susan Daboll, whose uses color photography to 'paint' dream-like landscapes

-Serene abstract paintings by Mary McDonnell, which are composed of many thin layers of paint, resulting in contemplative studies of color and texture

-Ariel Ruiz i Altaba s beautiful macrophotographic studies of embryos, which become abstractions in the enlarging process

-Sublime black and white photographs of Parisian streets and architecture by Michael Ackerman, who was voted 'Best Young Photographer of the Year' by the International Center of Photography, and

-Contemporary tintypes and ambrotypes of landscapes and still lifes by John Coffer, the father of the wet-plate collodion revival.

Room 904 will feature textile art and works related to fabric and sewing processes and will include:

-Delicate and beautiful sewn wax on paper pieces by New York artist Sermin Kardestuncer, who was recently featured in P.S.1's seminal 'Greater New York Artists' show

-Eerie, totemic figures and masks by institutionalized German artist Alfred Stief who knits these works using carpet needles, wool and string

-Katharine Cobey's sculptures of dresses knitted out of plastic bags and 'danger' tape

-Paintings created using thread by Brooklyn artist Shari Urquhart and

-Karen Reimer, recently featured in Art in America (February 2000), who combines stitched pieces of fabric with literary quotes and images. The Wall Street Viewing Room is a space that will present shows of contemporary work on a quarterly basis, and will be open by appointment. The gallery is the brainchild of veteran art dealer Margaret Bodell, (who has owned and managed the Margaret Bodell Gallery in the East Village for the past eight years) and show manager and producer Caroline Kerrigan (director and co-founder of the Outsider Art Fair and the New York Photography Fair).

A champagne tasting-reception will be hosted by the Champagne Wines Information Bureau, the U.S. representative of the Champagne houses and growers of La Champagne, France. Additional sponsors include NYCT Foods and Infues, custom-infused liquors, courtesy Page & Glovack Estates, NYC. Music by post-rock innovators 33.3.
