  • Exhibition: Clergue in America

  • Nov 10, 2011 at 6:00am to Dec 21, 2011 at 1:00pm
  • Location: FIAF Gallery
  • Description:

    Free and Open to the Public.


    Clergue in America showcases French photographer Lucien Clergue’s powerful depictions of the United States in an exhibition that spans the White Sands desert in New Mexico, the highways of Santa Fe, the expansive deserts of California, and the streets of New York.

    Through his use of light, textures, and form, Clergue captures both the impressive sights of the United States and the raw beauty of the human form, often juxtaposing natural and manmade wonders.

    A catalogue of Lucien Clergue’s work will be available to visitors, and, for the first time, an edition of the catalogue will also be accessible as a free iPad app.

  • Georges Hugnet: The Love Life of the Spumifers

  • Nov 18, 2011 at 6:00am to Jan 28, 2012 at 1:00pm
  • Location: Ubu Gallery
  • Description:

    November 16–January 28, 2011
    Exhibition Opening: November 15, 6 to 9PM

    Ubu Gallery is pleased to announce Georges Hugnet: The Love Life of the Spumifers, an exhibition of hand-painted photographic postcards by the eminent Surrealist artist, poet, bookbinding designer and critic. These bizarre, lusciously painted images illustrate Hugnet’s work, The Love Life of the Spumifers where each accompanying text poetically and humorously catalogues the mating habits of a fantastical creature or Spumifer.

    The Love Life of the Spumifers, or La Vie Amoureuse des Spumifères, combines Surrealist poetry’s fascination with l’amour and Dada’s tendency towards deliberate grammatical spontaneity and absurdity. Words like bowoodling, friskadoodling and alabamaraminating are concocted by Hugnet to describe the seductive strategies of his imaginary creatures. Each text is dedicated to a different creature, describing how it woos, teases, gropes and molests its intended love conquest. Each Spumifer is illust

  • Location: Chelsea
  • Description:

    Vicky David Gallery presents an installation of paintings by Ben  Vautier. Through his use of phrases, quotes and statements,  BEN juggles with words to deliver a  concise  and  polished message. Also bringing to light the falsely naive, impertinence and accuracy of the words used. BEN, who lives and works in Nice, France, is a self-taught French artist and performer of Swiss origin born in 1935.  He became well known in the 1960s, primarily for his "manuscript paintings."  At which time, he co-founded the Fluxus movement, inspired by Yves Klein and the New Realists.  Similar  to  the  neo Dadaist  movement, Ben questions the reality and declared  "All  is  art”  in  1962.    Heir  to  Duchamp,  his  work  leads  one  to  reflect  on  the notoriety of the artist and commercialization of the art world over all. Ben's oeuvre are on display throughout major private and public collections around the world.
