╰╮You can tell I’m alive and well because I weep continuously.
﹅Opening Reception: January 13, 6–9pm﹅January 13 – February 26, 2017﹅Knockdown Center﹅Knockdown Center﹅52-19 Flushing Ave, Queens, New York
·÷±‡± ±‡Knockdown Center is pleased to present “You can tell I’m alive and well because I weep continuously.,” an exhibition that features David Court, Erin Diebboll, David Horvitz, Anouk Kruithof, Amanda Turner Pohan, and Steven Zultanski, curated by Alison Burstein.

The show brings together the work of five artists whose techniques resonate with Agony’s provocative alchemical idiom: these artworks quantify bodily and affective features, apply logical and scientific reasoning to absurd ends, and manipulate the linkages between language and things. By placing the objects in calculated proximity to one another—and in relation to the connective tissue of Zultanski’s text—the exhibition format effects its own dynamic shift, conjuring poem-as-exhibition.

“You can tell I’m alive and well because I weep continuously.” invites viewers to inspect examples of morphed materiality within and between the elements on view, and thereby creates opportunities to consider the potential (and celebrate the futility) of giving stable form to ephemeral traits or experiences

╰╮Without a Body | Ivana Bašić, FlucT & Sable Elyse Smith ༄Hosted by SIGNAL
﹅Andrea Rosen Gallery 525 W 24th St, New York, New York﹅January 6 – February 4, 2017
The body is the boundary point of overt social control — something that can be worked, borrowed against, confined, a unit that can be processed. The artists in this exhibition share a concern with the body as the locus of dispute between the world and the self, in conflicts both physical and psychological, and the ways in which the systems of social control through which our bodies must move work within and without us.

FlucT is the collaboration between performers Sigrid Lauren and Monica Mirabile, who create highly charged choreographic works exploring social control and power dynamics enacted upon the body. Their “violently intimate” dance practice frequently sees their bodies colliding and entangling, and the two artists locked in confrontation with the audience and each other.

╰╮In)compatible ༄Hosted by Interstitial
﹅January 14 6 PM – 9 PM PST﹅Interstitial﹅6007 12th Ave S, Seattle, Washington
Interstitial presents “(in)compatible”, a group exhibition with new works from renowned media artists Dylan Neuwirth, Carla Gannis, Faith Holland, and Kathleen Daniel that explore the origins of online culture, structure, and aesthetic. Through sculpture, video, and installation works, this exhibition explores a new and dynamic area of contemporary art: the post-internet movement.
“(in)compatible” greets the viewer with Daniel’s otherworldly video work tucked into the entrance corner of the gallery. Suspended monitors create a false wall displaying a triptych of Gannis’s recent video work “A Subject Self-Defined.” Sculptural objects by Holland examine the “anthropomorphized interaction of technology with itself.” Neuwirth presents a series of illuminated glass sculptures containing helium, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon. Together the exhibited works form an eclectic expression of the current digital moment.
This exhibition is presented in collaboration with I Want You Studio.

╰╮The Original Emoji Set Has Been Added to The Museum of Modern Art’s Collection
The Museum of Modern Art has just announced its acquisition of the original set of 176 emoji for its permanent collection. These 12 x 12 pixelated hieroglyphs were the first visual components to the nu-speak of the digital age with which we are now all so familiar.

Originally designed for pagers made by the Japanese mobile provider NTT DoCoMo and released in 1999, It would take another decade for emoji to explode into an American phenomenon, when Apple integrated its first emoji set for the iPhone in 2011. At the time of publication, there are now nearly 2,000 standardized emoji known to exist…

if you care as much about alternate characters and digital pictographs as i do, read this gr8 Emoji Art thinkpiece in which Paul Galloway states: “Filling in for body language, emoticons, kaomoji, and emoji reassert the human in the deeply impersonal, abstract space of electronic communication.”
to which i state: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tensquared Presents Tensquared IRL: Intersections IRL

Opening THURSDAY, JULY 21ST, 7-9 P.M.

A showcase of contemporary practices by black artists, Intersections is a meeting place for perspectives on art making across a diverse palette of media. The show marks the first time that Tensquared –a digital gallery space– exhibits non-digital art in its 3D environment, becoming a tension point between the digital and the real.

From reimagined depictions of self to new attempts at combining abstracted forms; working on digital supports, video, printing, photography or painting, these artists engage with distinct aspects of contemporary living; pertaining to their bodies, pop-culture, hyperconnectivity, capitalism, and the intersection of race and gender.

Curated by Gaby Cepeda (Girls of the Internet Museum), Terrell Davis, and Joygill Moriah

╰╮About Rafia Santana

Rafia Santana is a Brooklyn-born-and-raised artist and self proclaimed media maniac. As a child born to a family of Black artists she was given the freedom and privilege to develop her talent for communicating through craft. However, growing up small, female, and Black, she found that she was frequently and persistently misunderstood. As an act of perseverance and self-preservation, she used several different mediums to express herself when one wasn’t enough.


#POWERVHS is a visual mixtape born out of a need to see black & brown women and femme artists as masters of their own image and overseers of their own practice in a hypermasculine white world that overvalues itself.

╰╮About Tensquared Gallery

Our #1 mission here at Tensquared is to make new and exciting work easily accessible. This year, Tensquared is all about diversity and inclusion in the art world, with each new show showcasing art from people of all walks of life.

╰╮About Girls of the Internet Museum

The GIM girls of the ~internet museum is a space where an hyper-subjective notion of the girly online experience is constructed by showing the artistic productions of ~girls on the internet, with an appreciation for sincerity and the creation of knowledge from subjectivity.

The institution’s selection of works, responds to four different core ideas: sincerity; a subjective representation of girliness that can ultimately convey a more universal -yet specific- statement on the female condition; a sensibility to translate artistic intention into online-representation and viceversa; and the acknowledgement of the fluidity between emotions/reality in the online/offline worlds, meaning, the cyborg condition we all embody in present times.

Tensquared is curated by Terrell Davis and Joygill Moriah. This show is a collaboration with sister gallery, the Girls of the Internet Museum (http://gim-museum.tumblr.com/), curated by Gaby Cepeda.
