THECLOCK

Christian Marclay | The Clock

Christian Marclay: The Clock is a 24-hour, single-channel montage constructed from thousands of moments of cinema and television history depicting the passage of time, excerpted and edited together to create a functioning timepiece synchronized to local time wherever it is shown. The result marks the exact time in real time for the viewer for 24 consecutive hours.

Shana Lutker

Inspired as much by historical documents and physical objects as by psychoanalysis and the study of dreams, Shana Lutker’s multi-disciplinary practice is, above all, conceptual. She works in a range of media, from drawing and sculpture to installation and performance, continuously aiming to recontextualize everyday experiences and subjects—with a cunning eye for societal anxieties and assumptions.

CITYSCAPE V

Primarily focusing on the area’s Mid-Century identity, this group show depicts the beauty in our modern cityscape. Architectural elements are beautifully captured using variations in lighting, dramatic angles, and specific colors, demonstrating the ways in which design and environment come together harmoniously, showcasing the compelling characteristics of these spaces.

ROBERT OVERBY

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 8, 5pm
Despite his extremely prolific and diversified practice, Overby remains one of the best-kept secrets of Post-War American Art. His impressive body of work is characterized by a restless experimentation with materials and processes, often comprised of latex casts of architectural structures. Architectural casts of doors, windows and facades made of rubber, latex and concrete occupy a space in between sculpture, painting and installation, revealing a conceptual concern for the understanding of the passage of time.

CHERRY AND MARTIN | August 8 – September 19 | cherryandmartin.com

ALICE

ALICE KÖNITZ

Opening Reception: Monday, August 31, 7pm
Alice Könitz’s sculptures riff on Mid-Twentieth-Century modernist furniture and public art, while her installations of drawings, films, collages, and homemade magazines contextualize her monolithic geometric forms as both a celebration and a critique of design vernacular. Built from inexpensive, readily available materials such as construction paper, felt, cardboard, and plastic, and cobbled together with little more than a glue gun, Könitz’s sculptures offer a handmade intimacy absent in the high modernist forms they emulate.

ERIC GERO EDITIONS | August 31 – December 18 | ericgeroeditions.com

queerfantasy

QUEER FANTASY

Opening Reception: Monday, August 31, 7pm
OHWOW Gallery presents Queer Fantasy, a group exhibition curated by William J. Simmons. Featuring work by ten artists, this show seeks to recount and preserve a frequently marginalized history of queer voices within contemporary art. These artists utilize photography, film, painting, sculpture, and large installations pieces to create subjects that offend delicate sensibilities and challenge stereotypes associated with the queer community.
