Feel curated by Brooklyn Film Camera

Feel. Simple, yet a word that holds much depth. To feel is something that is explored and interpreted in endless ways by all of us every day. How one feels about themselves, about those around them, about their community, their world, their reality; these sensitivities are constantly in flux. As we navigate an increasingly divided society, a polarized political landscape, the dehumanizing affects of late-stage Capitalism, and an increasing addiction to screens, we must fight the inevitable, soothing urge for numbness. To feel numb is to lose feeling and we must always remember how to feel. How to wholeheartedly and earnestly *feel*. It is our humanity. It is our heartbeat. This show will feature Polaroid work from 12 artists that explore this theme. Imagery that explores closeness, humanity, community, and love. These times beg for warmth. Let's feel it.

Dheeko ABR: Peace Bridge
to Jan 19

Dheeko ABR: Peace Bridge

I communicate and express my ideas using colors and shapes. These colors and shapes interpret ideas I have about beauty, nature, my life experience, and the world. I primarily use acrylic and oil paint on large scale canvas to express my thoughts and emotions.

There is one main reason fine art is my chosen profession and that is because it is the best way for me to communicate with society. There are numerous messages I’d like to convey to the world and painting is the best platform for me to do that. 

Most of these messages about nature and my surroundings come from my observations  memories from my childhood, my take on current events and my general perspective on beauty. Beauty is one of the most important themes of my work and it is reflected by the colors that I use. The colors I use are natural, solid colors like green, turquoise, brown and blue.... I also use colors as a means to experiment with my work and to progress as an artist. This experimental process with colors gives me an idea as to which set of colors I should or should not use for my next painting. 

Overall, I have gained plenty of life experience growing up in Africa, living in Canada and residing currently in the United States to address the topics I have mentioned. I continue to work on my art as I blend topical issues with its autobiographical nature. I consider fine art to be great tool for visual journalism.

Fragmento, In-Process
to Dec 8

Fragmento, In-Process

Fragmento, In-Process

Curated by Tatiane Schilaro


Alice Quaresma, Bia Monteiro, Gustavo Prado, Julia Brandão, Júlia Pontés, Mateu Velasco, Vitoria Hadba

Fragmento, In-Process presents seven Brazilian artists articulating notions of fragmentation and proliferation in their work: Alice Quaresma, Bia Monteiro, Gustavo Prado, Julia Brandão, Júlia Pontés, Mateu Velasco and Vitoria Hadba. These artists use photography, sculpture, textiles, printmaking, and photomontage to juxtapose peculiar shapes, textures, objects,
landscapes, bodies, and characters.

In Vitoria Hadba’s prints, lines lead our eyes outside the picture plane, while gaps between the photographs from Julia Pontés’ series, Pig Iron, indicate the suspended space in which the artist’s performative body becomes a “void.” In Bia Monteiro’s photographs “tropicalness” is only suggested. Instead of capturing images of palm trees and foliage––the stereotypical idea of Brazilianness––Monteiro’s dialogue between the natural and the artificial is established through residue of modern architecture.

It is also within the Brazilian urban spaces that Mateu Velasco situates his proliferation of forms and themes; his street-art-inspired characters could just as well have inhabited public walls such as the modern fragments found in Monteiro’s work. On the other hand, Julia Brandão’s proliferations are repurposed from the fashion world and retain the dynamism of urban life; these sculptural textiles breed knots, earrings, buttons, and fringes, resulting in a relationship with an adorned, but implicit body.

The implicit body is also explored by Alice Quaresma, whose practice describes photography and painting as in-process mediums, eschewing traditional readings of landscape and abstraction. Both Quaresma and Gustavo Prado trigger recollections of the most famous narrative in Brazilian art history: neo-concretism. Prado’s Contortionist series consists of flexible loop-like sculptures made to be handled and reconfigured, an homage to Brazilian Lygia Clark’s participatory works, which emerged from neo- concretism. These processes, based on the articulation of proliferation and/or fragmentation, can be understood as ways of re-accessing notions of Brazil. But in these works, Brazil is not idealized; it is not marked as a site for an expat’s nostalgia, instead it is a place to be reimagined, regurgitated,
multiplied, and recollected.

Produced by AnnexB and b[x] Gallery, Fragmento, In-Process is curated by Tatiane Schilaro.

"My work creates absolute, non-hierarchical situations. In that way, I hope my audiences see/experience absolute, non-hierarchical situations which they might never experience in their everyday lives, and I hope these experiences have a positive effect on their lives.

Hierarchy and sign are social byproducts which are derived from a male-dominated history. Because signs decide the class structure between objects and persons, I attempt to erase or decontextualize sign in objects. I indiscriminately aggregate objects which are defined by a male-dominated society. I interpret these objects democratically, and assemble these objects for female-centered situations. I see objects and images as phenomena which need to be broken down. "

Christopher Willauer: "It Is You Who Awakens Me"

Christopher Willauer: "It Is You Who Awakens Me"

Christopher Willauer

"It Is You Who Awakens Me"


OPENING RECEPTION:  Friday, June 2nd, 6-9PM

EXHIBITION: June 2 - July 14

I believe in a language of the body. A form that communicates and separates, full of intricate scars and wrinkles that read as prose, detachment and secretion that remind us of our materiality, holes and pits that demonstrate a constant hunger. Bodies are a place of experience and experimentation. 

Working through performance, sculpture, and video I conceptually engage with the body in a ritualistic and reverent manner. In my practice, the body functions both formally and conceptually as an exploration of anxieties, sorrows, pleasures, longings, eroticism, and queerness. These and other points of inquiry have become embedded within my perception of bodies and self. 

Motivated by a radical tenderness and strange love, I hope to expose myself to initiate a communal intimacy. The universality of bodies creates an opportunity to explore emotions and create visceral experiences in an inclusive manner. This ubiquity allows physicality to exist as a means of depicting what is felt. 

I have a fascination with the grotesque, repressed, pleasurable, and shameful; this serves as motivation to explore the roots of each and how they are entangled within ourselves. Within this entanglement, issues of identity are brought into question and force the viewer to examine his/her degree of comfort or discomfort. Initiated by an exploration of self, it is my hope that this examination of comfort evolves into new questions and understandings. I am particularly interested in the power of the abject and our power of adaptability; the confrontation of our body’s materiality and the tools developed to cope with our endless questions. 

Bodies exist in a social construct of high standards and stigmas, motivating shame and repression. I investigate the authority of my own body in relationship to my reaction of its origin. 

Our bodies are the one living thing we will always know but while we are also passive in its construction we become active in its performance. It is time to reclaim our bodies.

A few standout points:

Void is..

  • another state of reality, a dream

  • a place where rules are bended
  • a potential for transition, secret routes
  • denying something
  • infinite connectedness

"I feel there might be some hints that you're going into another state of reality.." - Carolina

"When we're staring at a void or saying there's a void, we're actually saying this empty unknown is a part of's inside of us." - Jeremiah

"There is an underlying yearning to be connected..I think deep down there is that yearning to go beyond our own individual experience." - Maureen

"There is a period in between, like this period that you are in limbo that's death. It's like this complete absence of everything, there is no air there is no life there is nothing but yet you are there" - JC

  • create something new based on group dialogue
  • 1 - 2 pieces per artist
  • use a medium different from what is usual in the artist's practice
