Layers of Identity, Art Lives Here, El Barrio's Artspace, New York, NY

Exhibition Dates: June 19 - July 12, 2024

Opening Reception: June 19, 6 - 9 pm

Performance event: Friday, July 12, 2024, 6:00 – 9:00 pm with Matthew Westerby Dance Company

Art Lives Here presents, Layers of Identity, a site-responsive exhibition at 

El Barrio’s Artspace PS 109.


Layers of Identity celebrates the idea that human beings are layered, the complexity of our personalities, and individual histories is what makes us interesting. The exhibition explores the layers of societal structures and personal experiences that form how we see ourselves. Where we are from and where we have been often influences how we express ideas, as it does with all three well-travelled artists. Pauline Galiana, Hollie Heller and Joanne Steinhardt create in layers of materials, although informed by traditional techniques the contemporary aesthetic is unexpected. The viewer is likely to be unsure of what they are looking at. Is it a tapestry or is it a collage? Is it a woven textile or a paper assemblage? Is it fashion or adaptive reuse?



Pauline Galiana was born in Algiers and grew up in Switzerland and then France. She lives and works in New York City. Galiana received her MFA at ESAG in Paris in 1984 and holds a Christie’s Art Business Certificate. 


Galiana engages simultaneously with distinct disciplines, shifting from mixed media, sculpture, painting, and installation to performance and video. Her work combines noble and mundane materials; whatever the specific process, materials and images are usually deconstructed, then reconstructed and hybridized. She wastes nothing. Her processes are obsessive and meditative, combining meticulous planning and patient execution. When applied to materials of varied form, resilience, texture, the otherwise common motions of drawing, looping, sticking, or sewing become transformative. Expressing instinctive states of mind through formal compositions, often rigorous grids, extracting meaning from unexpected encounters and entropy.


Galiana’s work has been exhibited at the New York Public Library; Memorial Sloan Kettering Gallery Brooklyn; Kentler International Drawing Space in Brooklyn; the Columbus Museum, Columbus, GA; Drawing Rooms Art Center, NJ; Durham Arts Council, NC; Islip Art Museum, NY; New York Institute of Technology; ChaShaMa Gallery, NYC; Robert Henry Contemporary Gallery, Bushwick; Baron Boisanté Gallery, NYC; Ramis Barquet Gallery, Mexico; FSU Museum of Fine Arts, Tallahassee, FL; Stadtmuseum Deggendorf, Germany among others. In 2017 she was selected for a one-month artist residency at MassMoCa in North Adams, MA. Her work is included in the collections of UBS, New York University, the National Museum of Romanian Literature, where she won a 2018 Bibliophile Object-Book Biennale award, and private collections in New York, Washington, Houston, Paris, Riyadh, London and Sydney. 



Hollie Heller was born in New Jersey and currently lives in New York City and Costa Rica. Her work is inspired by materials and ideas collected on her travels, particularly in Africa. Heller holds an M.F.A. in Weaving and Textile Design, minor in Painting, from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY and a B.S. in Art Education, minor in Textile Design, University of Delaware, Newark, DE. 


Heller’s knowledge of textiles and weaving informs her practice. Although steeped in traditional methods of making, she experiments with techniques and tests the limits of ordinary materials. Her mosaic-like installations celebrate land and sea, engaging the viewer with a vibrant landscape. Inspired by nature and the power of stories, Hollie explores the potential of personal narratives combined with everyday materials. Her methods span a range of media, from painting and photography to sculpture and installation work.


Heller’s work is in public collections across the U.S. and she has been regularly featured in solo exhibitions in New Jersey. She has also participated in group shows in New York, the U.S. and internationally. Her work is included in many corporate and private collections including Hyatt Hotels in San Antonio, TX, Sarasota, FL, Philadelphia PA, Sedona, AZ; Hilton Hotel in Nashville, TN, Doubletree Hotel in Chicago, IL, Southpark Suites in Charlotte, NC, Westin Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA, Mohegan Sun Casino, CT, Omni Hotels in Atlanta, GA and Orlando FL; HBO World Headquarters in New York, NY, the Arthur Blank Foundation in Atlanta, GA; Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ and Johnson and Johnson Pharmaceuticals in New Brunswick, NJ.



Joanne Steinhardt was born in New Jersey and lives and works in the New York Metro area. Steinhardt holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Maine College of Art and a Bachelor of Science in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology School of Photographic Arts and Science.

Steinhardt explores the intersection of disposability and cancel culture specifically in consideration of people who do not fit-in or serve the acceptable purpose they were culturally assigned. Steinhardt considers the idea of “second chances” for those set aside through reclaiming materials left, discarded, or saved but buried in deep corners of closets that are no longer used for their intended purpose. She brings these objects to a new purpose joining their history with a new future. 


Steinhardt's work has been exhibited at Les Moulins Gallery, Boissy-le-Châtel, France, El Barrio ArtSpace, The Equity Gallery, Carter Burden, Artsy, The Shim Network (New York) and The Tampa Museum of Art, Polk County Museum, and Covivant Gallery (Florida). She has lectured and led workshops at numerous institutions around the US and abroad, including New York University Tisch ITP, Parsons, The Garden School, The Pingry School, Harrison School for the Arts, and La Biennale del fin del Mundo in Ushuaia, Argentina. Before relocating home to NYC, Steinhardt achieved tenure in both the Art and Communication Departments at the University of Tampa where she conceived a multidisciplinary Electronic Media Art and Technology Program designed to support those interested in a self-directed academic Major combining art, communication, English, music, computer information systems, and entrepreneurship. 



Connie Lee is an independent curator, public art leader, advocate for public space and the founder of Art Lives Here, a non-profit arts organization that addresses cultural equity. Art Lives Here is a growing community of more than 100 artists and the arts administrators, collectors and curators that support them. We encourage inclusivity by integrating a diverse group of artists into the exhibitions that we organize. Equity is also about providing access to art, bringing quality and meaningful public art installations, exhibitions, performances, and arts programming to people where they live, and work. 


During Lee’s six-year term, 2015 – 2021, as President of the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance, she developed the acclaimed public art initiative, a program that facilitated dozens of public art installations in Northern Manhattan, including Marcus Garvey Park, Harlem Art Park, White Park, Eugene McCabe Field, Morningside Park, A Philip Randolph Square, and public plazas in the neighborhoods of Harlem. 


Since 2020 she has curated a salon and exhibition space in a Harlem brownstone, connecting emerging and mid-career artists to each other and the collectors that want to support them. This space has become the nexus for Art Lives Here, and an incubator for ideas. Lee has a personal history with Artspace, nominating the building for landmark status when she served on the board of Landmark East Harlem as a founding member.

Metamorphosis: Recycled, Repurposes, Reimagined, Kay Daughtery Gallery, Annamarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center, Solomons, MD

Show Dates: February 9 - April 21, 2024


Curated by Siobhan Starrs, Exhibition Developer and Sustainability Champion, National Museum of Natural History, The Smithsonian Institution


Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center presents Metamorphosis: Recycled, Repurposed, Reimagined. This exhibition seeks to inspire environmentally sustainable artmaking through found objects, creative reuse, and upcycled art. By repurposing by-products, waste materials, or unwanted objects and transforming them into something with more perceived and artistic value, artists explore environmental themes, engage in social commentary, implore a call to action, or infuse realism, emotion, or humor in their work. Artwork in this show is meant to be eye-opening, engaging, thought-provoking, inspiring, poetic, and even sometimes playful and optimistic. How are contemporary artists engaging with objects in a world overrun with too much stuff?

Superpresent Magazine, Volume 4, Issue 1, Winter 2024

Superpresent Magazine, Volume 4.1 features work under the theme "Provocations/Instigations" and includes Pauline Galiana's short video "It Never Dies."


"A hand-made quilt crafted from plastic bags takes on many roles in the hands of an individual who cherishes it— it becomes a shelter, a tablecloth, a picnic blanket, a quilted bedcover, cleaned in a laundry machine, and hung to dry. Although the practices in the video are not recommended, the video aims to trigger imagining how to reuse and the

purpose of plastic material."

I Would Prefer Not To, Art150, Jersey City, NJ

Curated by Mana Contemporary Director Kele McComsey



Opening Reception: Friday, October 13, 6-9 PM


Based on Herman Melville’s “Bartelby the Scrivner” and his singular repeated line … “I would prefer not to.”


Melville’s story has always been looked at as a protest against capitalism and what ultimately happens to non-conformists within that system.


This show will look at the broader implications of non-conformity and how artists work in the periphery of the system even as art has become commodified in so many ways.

What happens to an artist or person who prefers not to?


Imagine not being on social media, or in a political party, or being engaged in the “us versus them” status quo of the day.


What is non-conformity in a system that is all-pervasive?

Affiliation / Alienation, XinSai Magazine, Issue 3, 2023

True, the interplay between Affiliation/Alienation is a slight one; if you squint, the narrow gap between the two concepts may appear to not exist at all. Perhaps we are all inherently alienated beings, and perhaps that is the cost that comes with bodily autonomy, perceived free will. But at the end of it all, we find belonging – to languages, places, intangible spaces, because “what else” can we do, “in the face of the indifferent universe”? (Anita Donovan)

Transplants, Amos Eno Gallery, Brooklyn, NY

Show Dates: July 14 - 29, 2023

Opening Reception: Friday, July 14 from 6 to 8 p.m.


The exhibition 'Transplants' explores the act of moving a living thing from one place to another, whether a human being, a culture, an internal organ, or a botanical specimen. In each instance, the transplants undergo both a physical migration and transformation of identity as they adapt to their new surroundings. The hope is they grow new roots and thrive, but there is also potential peril if the new environment proves inhospitable.

Summer Show 2023, Studio Artego, Queens, NY 

Two pieces from the Shredded series will be on display at Artego's upcoming group exhibition in Queens, NY. This series looks at the seemingly mundane and discarded- personal documents, notes, and paper artwork, which are subjected to a meticulous process of selecting, cutting, looping, and gluing into a rigorous grid. The resulting pieces are an intricate statement about recycling and explore the human mind's resilience and determination to make sense of entropy.

Pauline Galiana: Mind and Body, Cynthia Byrnes Contemporary Art, Virtual Solo Exhibition 

Curated by Tessa Rosenstein


April 21st – June 19th, 2023


View The Exhibition


CBCA is proud to present Mind and Body, a solo exhibition of works on paper by Pauline Galiana. This exhibition features work from three of Galiana’s major series: Inside, Generation, and Shredded; each of which explores a distinct aspect of what makes us human in either mind or body. Through this survey of Galiana’s practice, we consider her nuanced expression of the point at which life transforms from something technical to something profound.


In each of these three series, Galiana emphasizes color and her active methods of production to interrogate and convey the point at which that element which makes us human intersects with either the mind or the body. In Inside Series, Galiana uses vivid colors and energetic brush strokes to create abstracted interpretations of anatomical medical imaging. She describes this process as, “breath[ing] life into the deconstructed living organisms with gestural and vibrant paint strokes and surfaces.” The resulting compositions are bright and playful, featuring organic shapes imbued with a natural movement by the artist’s hand. In doing so, Galiana vests a sense of life back into her subjects.

 

In her Generation Series, Galiana applies her broad, gestural brushstrokes, the use of bare fingers, and varied color pallets to create what she describes as “mental landscapes.” While the horizontal bands of dry pigment loosely evoke a horizon line, their inarticulate, abstracted form center the communication of color and movement over a landscape. By identifying these as mental landscapes her expressive bands of color seem to illustrate a train of thought or natural sequence of emotions as each color blends into the next. Again, through her lively method of creation and clear evidence of her own hand, Galiana insinuates movement and a sense of life into her pensive mental landscapes.

 

Finally, in her Series Galiana employs gesture through the process of meticulously selecting, cutting, and assembling slivers of repurposed personal documents into grid-like circular sculptures. While Inside and Generation express a sense of livelihood through their vibrant colors and animated, gestural process of creation, here Galiana illustrates the human capacity for restraint and diligence. She explains that this, “intense meticulousness…ground[s] [the] work in the resilience of the human mind and its determination to patch, rebuild, and excavate from the entropy.” While her materials are in themselves literal evidence of a life lived, her detailed and laborious method of production further conveys the capacity of the human mind not just to feel but to rationalize and seek order. 

 

Throughout her practice Pauline Galiana instills her work with a sense of life and humanness. Using her own body and labor as an essential tool in the final piece, Galiana’s physically engaged methods of creation and spirited use of color spark a sense of intimacy, liveliness, and something essentially human in each piece as she explores the varied capacities of the mind and body.

Are We Free to Move About the World: The Passport in Contemporary Art, Florida State University's Museum of Fine Arts

Show Dates: February 2 - May 20, 2023


Are We Free to Move About the World: The Passport in Contemporary Art opens on February 2 at Florida State University’s Museum of Fine Arts (MoFA). Curated by Grace Aneiza Ali, curator and assistant professor in the FSU Departments of Art and Art History, the exhibition explores how contemporary artists engage with the passport to reflect one’s freedom of movement or lack thereof. The exhibition aims to investigate how artists treat the passport as an object of inquiry, both precious and stripped of its meaning, unpacking it as an urgent response to the global migration crisis.


“This gathering of global artists examines the great paradox of the passport — its ability to grant freedom of movement as well as curtail it,” Aneiza Ali said. “And it’s an invitation for all of us to ponder a world ordered by the passport and how we negotiate our place in it.”  


Artists: Kelani Abass, Mona Bozorgi, Holly Bynoe, Pilar Castillo, Albert Chong, Jesse Chun, Jeremy Dennis, Pauline Galiana, Ahmad Hammoud, Suchitra Mattai, Camille Modesto, Yasmin Nicholas, Mason Richards, Farihah Aliyah Shah, Cosmo Whyte.

Pattern Recognition, Ely Center of Contemporary Art, online show

January 9 - April 30, 2023


Are our brains essentially pattern recognition machines? We are all wired to see patterns - fractals in nature, trends in events, even behaviors that reoccur over time. Patterns help us create a sense of order and balance in our worlds, and allow us to attach meaning to objects and experiences.


Pattern recognition has been an important and powerful evolutionary tool that allows us to make meaningful connections, gain new perspectives, and increase our understanding of the world leading to new discoveries and innovations.


Explore Pattern Recognition and see how each of our featured artist reckons with life’s patterns and the meanings they ascribe to them.

Trash, Local Project, Long Island City, NY
Local Project is pleased to present “TRASH”, an exhibition that provokes a conversation about the environment through art. We ask the question, “what is our relationship with trash?” How could something that was once loved, treasured or used be tossed away? Can we give these objects a second chance and utilize them to create something new and beautiful? Visitors are invited to view our eclectic collection of objects, assemblages, and creations. This exhibition was curated by Tim Kelly.

Scale within the Artist’s Practice: Part Two - Landscape and Abstraction, NYAC @ Art at First, NYC


"Artists grasp ideas and set out to make visible what has occurred in their mind’s eye. How then to decide the scale of the idea? The works in this show demonstrate, instead of telling, how the urge to materialize an idea compels them to create smaller or larger…and why."

USPS Art Project, InLiquid, Philadelphia, PA

“Little Moons”, my #USPSArtProject with Liz Jaff / @jaffworks. This collaborative piece will be for sale at @InLiquidArt Artist Studio Gallery in Philadelphia, November 23 - January 17, 2021. It was very challenging to alter Liz’ quiet and symmetrical piece. It took me time to put down my inhibition to bring a different melody to “Little Moons”. Graphite, colored pencil and strass on cut-out paper.

“Armadillo” (lower) is the other part of the project. Because this art project created and run by the amazing Christina Massey is all about supporting the US Postal Service, I collaged vintage white envelopes in a quiet and symmetrical pattern challenging Liz on her own turf and secured them with a red thread, a material Liz uses in her quilt-making practice. She had to sharpen her exacto to cut through, fold and make the envelope background bloom into a beautiful art piece.

Splinters in the ongoing normal, Project V Gallery

New York City, N.Y., March 14, 2022 | Project Gallery V presents Splinters in the ongoing normal: the Spring Open Call Exhibition 2022 with artworks by 33 different artists. Spanning a range of artistic mediums, including painting, photography, video, and mixed-media installations, this online exhibition offers an expansive, raw, and nuanced look at many of the issues and affective states that characterize our present-day realities.


Many of these works reveal narratives that are at once personal and universal. Although they are inspired by unique experiences and perspectives, the exhibited works elicit notions of tenderness, loss, isolation and fragmentation — emotions that have increasingly textured our collective consciousness over the past two years. Yet, other works also speak to a sense of greater joy, wonder, and resilience, often deploying humor as a creative strategy to deal with the issues that they surface. Together, they explore a wide range of subjects, including gender identity, personhood, memory, and domestic life — as well as disability, climate change, media saturation, and systemic biases.

Survival Tools for the Age of Ultra Anxiety, Plaxall Gallery

The exhibition “Survival Tools for the Age of Ultra Anxiety” takes as its premise the state of ultra-anxiety our culture is functioning within due to the pandemic and worldwide social and economic upheaval. It questions whether our endlessly competitive society, which rewards selfish behavior over altruism, has given us the tools needed to survive or whether artists are needed to lead us away from the brink of extinction.

This group exhibition proposes physical, emotional and psychological survival through adaptation to tactics, methods and tools central to artistic creation but commonly marginalized by societies focused on expediency and short term financial profit. Through gadgets, gizmos, interactive machinery and video narratives a course forward will be proposed that values and utilizes unfettered imagination, rampant invention, irrational systems, dream logic, humor and the impossible. This exhibition depends upon and makes the case for a world built on the notion that things are not fixed in their identities but are mutable and can be changed into other things.

Logic makes sense to us because we invented it to understand the world, but our environment has no responsibility to conform to our logical expectations and in fact does not, as quantum investigation makes clear. We must adapt to a reality much more complex and unpredictable than our rational viewpoint has presented in order to survive and flourish.

The group exhibition, “Survival Tools for an Age of Ultra-Anxiety’, will be emblematic of this crucial sea change in thought by embodying its values in diverse, challenging and liberating forms.” 

Mostly Monochrome, WoArtBlog & 1st Dibs, Online show

Featuring artists using a mostly monochromatic approach to the creation of their work.

“Artworks with the reduced variant of color grab their viewers attention instead through their process, materials, composition and tonality. ⁠

As one scrolls through the exhibition, you’ll be visually transitioning through subtle shifts in the monochromatic palette and visually stimulated through the juxtaposition of works from minimal color field paintings to extremely detailed and laborious drawings and sculptures."⁠

The Fifth Element, Outlander Gallery, Jersey City, NJ

Outlander Gallery in collaboration with Sky Kim is pleased to announce The Fifth Element exhibition, which brings together five compelling international artists in a show that challenges how we observe, perceive, recreate and reinterpret the Five Elements of Nature; Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Space (Aether/Void). The connective tissue that links their works is found in organic images and metaphors which suggest alternative, metaphoric readings of identity, sexuality, fertility, transformation, growth, spirituality, and personal interpretation of living. Each artist represents an element engaging in stirring gestures and organic forms with the powerful life forces of Gaia that float, multiply, clash, divide, regenerate and evolve within their vigorous vitality. ⁠
