Yangyang Pan at Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery


YANGYANG PAN
VISIONS OF EDEN
September 11 - October 24, 2020
Sailing Away, 2020. Oil on linen, 42 x 60 in. 

YANGYANG PAN'S new solo exhibition VISIONS OF EDEN presents 12 paintings of intense chromatic lyricism. The works are vibrant and visionary, informed by the artist’s deep-seated knowledge of Eastern and Western art history. In this new pointed approach to the abstract landscapes that have defined Pan’s practice for the past 10 years, Pan reveals her inner self to radiate moods, emotional states, and thoughts on painting.

Art Basel Miami has been Canceled for 2020!

Art Basel Miami has been Canceled for 2020! 


We regret to announce that the 2020 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach has been cancelled

We regret to announce that the 2020 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach has been canceled

The next edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach will take place from December 2 to December 5, 2021, with preview days on December 1 and December 2, 2021.

Given the ongoing impact of the pandemic, which spans from South Florida to other parts of the country and the world, limitations and uncertainty about the staging of large-scale events, international travel restrictions and bans, as well as quarantine regulations within the United States and internationally, Art Basel has no other option but to cancel the 2020 edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach. Art Basel in Miami Beach was scheduled to take place from December 3 to December 6, 2020 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

‘It is with great regret and disappointment that we announce the cancellation of our December show in Miami Beach, as we know how crucial our show is for our galleries, as well as for the greater Miami arts community and economy. We thank everyone who shared their perspectives and insights with us over the past months and weeks and look forward to returning to Miami Beach next year to deliver a successful show,’ said Art Basel's Director Americas Noah Horowitz.

As the artworld continues to face momentous challenges, Art Basel remains firmly committed to supporting the global gallery community in the best way possible through its digital initiatives and by hosting its upcoming 2021 shows in Hong Kong, Basel, and Miami Beach. Two Online Viewing Rooms have been announced for the fall: ‘OVR:2020’, dedicated to artworks made during 2020 and running from September 23 to 26, and ‘OVR:20c’, which will feature works created between 1900 and 1999 and take place from October 28 to 31. These will be followed in December by further Online Viewing Rooms that will be open to all galleries accepted to the 2020 edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach. Further details will follow in the coming weeks.\

The Audubon Society says get out and register to vote!! Today is National Voter Registration Day

National Audubon Society

Don't wing it this election.
Birds can’t vote, but as one of the millions of Americans who care about them—you can. 

In addition to the presidential race, there are countless state and local elections happening nationwide this year that will have a big impact on our communities and our birds. These decision makers have an important influence on the ways that laws are written and enacted at every level of government.

Today is National Voter Registration Day, and we’re asking you to do two things: 

1. Make a Voting Plan

Different states have different rules about early voting and vote by mail, so be sure you have your ducks in a row. Here are some resources that can help:
2. “Triple Your Vote” by Asking Three Friends to Pledge to Vote for the Birds This Fall 

Once you have made your voting plan and know when and where you're going to vote, you can be a leader in your community simply by encouraging three friends to vote. Click here to get started.

The best way to guarantee a brighter future for birds and the places they need is to make sure you and three of your friends vote on or before November 3.
Triple Your Vote

The Long Island Coyote Study Group - comprised of representatives from Seatuck, Hofstra, Wild Dog Foundation, Greentree Foundation, Mianus Gorge Preserve, American Museum of Natural History, NYSDEC, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Kingsborough Community College and Fordham University – has identified several coyote sites on Long Island and Fishers Island. Given that coyotes have never lived on Long Island, we hope to learn important insights into their use of the Long Island landscape and their impacts on our ecological systems.

 We need your help.

The American Museum of Natural History has generously offered to do the laboratory analyses of the coyote scats we collect as long as we can raise $6,000 for their lab materials. We are well on our way to meeting the goal with $1,500 (25% of the target goal) already committed by LINO and Seatuck. We are reaching out to our colleagues in the Long Island conservation community for help in raising the money for the project.

 

Please help us meet our goal… no contribution is too small.
click here for the donation page.

We will be collecting coyote scats throughout the year for analyses to determine:

  • Diet (and potential seasonal changes in diet);
  • The number of individual coyotes at each site;
  • The relatedness of coyotes at each site to the Bronx and Fishers Island populations (the latter will enable us to test the hypothesis that the Fishers Island - Great Gull Island - Plum Island archipelago is a conduit for recruitment of coyotes to eastern Long Island).

Many thanks and best wishes to everyone,
Mike Bottini

Berlin Art Week 2020 September 9-11


Despite the hand that 2020 has dealt thus far, this year’s Berlin Art Week and postponed edition of Gallery Weekend Berlin are set to kick off in nearly full swing on September 9th and 11th, respectively. There may not be any boisterous dinners or crowded openings in the traditional sense, but a plethora of noteworthy exhibitions, talks, screenings and award ceremonies will be taking place digitally and physically, with day-long openings where you can—wait for it—actually see the art on the walls. Without further ado, here are some of the most promising shows that should be at the top of your itinerary for the 2020 iterations of Berlin Art Week and Gallery Weekend Berlin.

Let’s begin with the most sprawling and complex of them all: the 11th Berlin Biennial (BB11). Helmed by a team of South-American curators—María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, and Agustín Pérez Rubio—this edition of the Biennale has been envisioned as a series of lived experiences that evolve as a process. As such, the show already started to unfold over the course of the past year through three exhibitions-cum-experiences, deemed “moments” by the curators and titled “exp. 1,” “exp. 2,” and “exp. 3.” Each of these moments attempted to learn from and build sustainable relationships with the participating artists and projects as well as with the city and people of Berlin. Having wrapped up “exp. 3” earlier this summer, the stage is now set for the “epilogue,” which opened on September 5th. Titled “The Crack Begins Within”—words taken from a poem by Iman Mersal—the epilogue is an exercise of mutual recognition, an acknowledgement of the cracks in our systems, of those broken by them and their struggles. Works by artists like Pacita Abad, Noor Abuarafeh, Deanna Bowen, Francisco Copello, Cian Dayrit, Käthe Kollwitz, Katarina Zdjelar, and many others will be spread throughout KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Gropius Bau, daad Galerie, and ExRotaprint.

BB11 is a staple of Berlin Art Week’s official agenda, which also includes institutional exhibitions like “Magical Soup” at Hamburger Bahnhof. Featuring work by artists ranging from Nam June Paik to Lawrence Weiner to Pipilotti Rist to Anne Imhof, Nicole Wermers, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Christine Sun Kim, Sandra Mujinga, and many others, the show takes the intersection of sound, image, and social space as its starting point and goes on to explore the power with which these medias can create, reveal or hide reality. The works on view will feature precise observations, forms of radical self-expression, and deliberate the deconstruction of identity. While at Hamburger Bahnhof, it’s also worth visiting Katharina Grosse’s much buzzed about exhibition, “It Wasn’t Us” (the installations are so large that it would be nearly impossible to miss anyway!).

 Berlin Art Week and Gallery Weekend Berlin 2020 extend much further, into the digital realm and beyond. We must admit that we’ll certainly miss the bustling openings and the lower probability of chance encounters (not to mention the inability to meet many of the exhibiting artists who will be installing their shows remotely via Zoom), but hey, at least we can encourage you to leave the screen and explore the city’s rejuvenated art scene—something that three months ago we wouldn’t have thought possible.

Stay healthy and best wishes,
The Exhibitionary team

EMILIE ARNOUX, Paradise in the Eyes, 60" x 47"

***

Emilie Arnoux’s paintings are brilliantly paired with American photographer Lynn Savarese. Together the two artists' work comes to life in vivid juxtaposition; the gentle flow of water in motion with the play of sunlight on its surface offers up endless summer reveries all the more apropos with dog-days now sadly coming to an end. This exhibition seeks to satisfy our intense longing for one last tryst in sun.

EMILIE ARNOUX, Cubes Game, 47" x 60"

Arnoux hails from Normandy, France. From a young age, she became fascinated by the ocean and the laid back lifestyle surf-culture engenders. Her work captures the divine energy and the jubilation experienced when diving into cool water for relief from the hot-hot heat; tan bikini-clad bodies soaking up vitamin D by the pool while bobbing enticingly in bright-red inflatable rafts. Arnoux’s neo art-deco style is drenched in a certain Americana nostalgia, reminiscent of David Hockney and at times Toulouse-Lautrec. She reduces three-dimensional objects to flat geometric shapes that feel at once contemporary and modern, recalling beach-side postcards of the 1950s and 60s.

LYNN SAVARESE, Water Galaxy, 64" x 52"

Savarese’s favorite subject, too, is water, in all of its manifestations from calm to turbulent; from gently lapping to crashing in frothy tumult. In her portrayals of water, she strives to evoke the ways in which this universal elixir uniquely soothes, excites, inspires, consoles, renews, delights, and awes. Savarese has traversed the globe to capture water’s beauty; from the Hamptons, the Adirondacks, and Martha's Vineyard, to Iceland, Australia, the Caribbean, Patagonia, Europe, and Japan. Her featured images focus on the mesmerizing ways in which water surfaces collaborate with intense summer light and serve as exquisite canvases for abstract artistic renderings. Savarese’s aquatic portraits offer a dynamic connection with Arnoux’s paintings of glimmering water, with each artist inviting or daring viewers to dive right in.

POOLSIDE resonates with a complex prism of sun-drenched hues; Savarese’s images are rich in cobalt blues, teals, and whites, while Arnoux’s vivid pastel color palette employs a range of saturated blues, greens, and oranges. The two artists’ intimate portrayals of water reflect a deep affinity, while retaining an inspired uniqueness. Together, the exquisite works illustrate in living color the exhilarating sensations of summertime. You can still feel the heat from the sun on your skin, the lovely relief from the weight of gravity that water provides, the subtle burn of chlorine from the pool, coconut flavors from thickly applied suntan lotion wafting on the balmy air, and the delicious taste of salt from the ocean on your chapped lips.
