Rachel Hope Allan: CRASH
In association with Wallplay and Rouge Society Gin

Fresh from the idyllic antipodes comes CRASH, the most recent exhibition by Rachel Hope Allan. For one week Allan’s photographic works will be on display at number 2 Rivington Street. With more than a nod to J. G. Ballard’s book of the same name, CRASH sees Allan explore the textured collision between technology and human inquiry: as raw as rope burn and as black as the dull ache you only feel in your groin. Run headlong into a world where steel and steam fuse with spit, rubber and desire in a series of works created through photographic process from both the 19th and 21st centuries. CRASH investigates the fear and supernatural atmosphere during an act of resuscitation, bringing to the surface modes of image making set to moments near death.  
 Interested in subterfuge, trickery and the alchemical magic of photography, Allan’s work raises questions   Allan’s work deals with restraint, curiosity and mimicry. Her work challenges perceptions of reality to explore the fetishization of objects within a around the potential and expectations of image production in the 21 photographic process.

Rachel Hope Allan is an artist and writer from New Zealand. She holds a master of fine arts with distinction from Dunedin School of Art, New Zealand where she currently lectures in photography and electronic arts.

  • Parasol @ Elizabeth

Multimedia audio/visual artist Lucy Nell Stewart will share a selection of her recent projects. 

“I find great sustenance in the mother ship and all her elements. Coming from a classical and avant-garde theatre arts background I carry with me the proscenium to composite new worlds with my beloved and always surprising creature friends. As much as I am painting/composing with movements and sounds, the works have a life of their own and I try to stay out of the way”.

Lucy Nell Stewart was born in Northern California in autumn of 1960. From 1973-1976 she attended American Ballet Theater scholarship summers in New York City. Returning to California she finished high school then danced professionally with a handful of ballet companies; Houston Ballet, San Francisco Opera Ballet, Garden State Ballet, and Dayton Ballet. In 1979 through the mid 1980’s she created and performed her own performance art works in New York City as well studied clowning at “If Every Fool”. She headed back to California to for theater and film projects where her first one-woman show emerged in the early 1990’s in Los Angeles. Back to New York City mid 1990’s to create her second show and her theatrical pursuits led to an interest in filmmaking. She attended a handful of Super 8 and 16mm classes at Millennium with Ross McLaren and then migrated to video on her own to create these works. She has been making art her entire life and now resides in Pennsylvania near the Delaware River.

More than one possibility @ Bowery

  • Parasol Projects @ Bowery

More than one possibility: A photo exhibition of an independent Brazilian photography group.

Based on the phrase of the American curator Lucy Lippard: “… it is not necessary to wait for an invitation for doing an exhibition, just go for it and make it”, this group of Brazilian photographers got together to show their production in a photo exhibition.

The idea of this project was founded by the independent curator and teacher Renato Negrão, who has promoted and curated several groups through exhibitions in different countries such as: Canada, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon. 

In 2016 Negrão did his biggest project, when he transformed the central historical train station of São Paulo, into an open gallery, with more than 100 images hanged above the platforms and on footbridges (www.renatonegrao.com.br)

The idea of this exhibition in NY is that the group believes in the public audience as the most important critic and judge, so everyone is invited to see the images of the 23 Brazilian photographers.

This exhibition includes a mix of different subjects such as: landscape, portrait, self-portrait, personal history, documentary, memories and street art.

Cave Homo @ Bowery

  • Parasol Projects @ Bowery

Cave Homo is a zine about professional skateboarder Brian Anderson. Mostly known for his international success becoming Thrasher’s Skater of the Year in 1999 and winning the World Cup of Skateboarding in Münster, Germany the same year, he has since become one of the most iconic and respected professional Skateboarders worldwide.

In 2016, Brian came out as gay. In a recent Vice documentary he talks about his journey, fears, and why it was the right decision to no longer keep his sexuality a secret.

Designer Luke Williams and photographer Christian Trippe collaborated closely with Brian to create Cave Homo. The zine is a combination of portraits, shot in an exclusive intimate photo shoot, excerpts from Brian’s private sketchbooks and personal collection of polaroids. Cave Homo reveals a new and di erent side of Brian, outside the skateboarding world.

The show will feature photography from the zine and for the first time, Brian will show some of his paintings. The zine is hand-numbered and limited to 666 copies. Visitors will be able to buy a copy during the 2-day event.

Opening party: June 24 / 6-9pm
