Will Kurtz Take Home a Nude

Gallery artist Will Kurtz, who meticulously constructs life-size figures out of everyday household materials such as glue, newspaper, masking tape, and wood--modeling them after acquaintances and those whose anonymous image he secretly captures with his iPhone on the streets of Brooklyn, has donated a sculpture to the New York Academy of Art's Take Home a Nude benefit auction.

Stefanie Gutheil's upcoming group show

Stefanie Guthiel will take part in a group exhibition curated by Mika Hanulla called, Adelbergerstr. 9 + - Muscle Temple Painting Society at Helsinki Contemporary in Helsinki, Finland.

From the press release: "[It is] a very physical exhibition, focusing on our experience of being there, and being with the paintings...They create and generate confrontations and connections...These are works that shout at us. They challenge us, but they also caress us. They look back at us, and throw us off balance. The motto of the exhibition is borrowed from the American filmmaker John Waters, known for his more than usually experimental style. Out of all the possible candidates, he is the one who defines the task of art as being: to confuse us in a beautiful way."

The exhibition opens on November 2 and will be on view through November 25.
