Artist: Rory Rosenberg Exhibition title: Taxi, and Crow Venue: 321 Gallery, New York, US Date: August 13 – September 5, 2015 Photography: Daniel Terna, images copyright and courtesy of the artist and 321 Gallery, New York My grandfather was a cab driver. He grew up just outside of the city in New Jersey, a town called Keansburg. His home was made of salt glazed bricks. The summer heat forced them to glisten. They’d sweat. He began driving when he was 23, practicing to get the hang of it. His finger was smashed while he worked at a metal fabrication company in Paterson, where they produced ball bearings used in forklifts. […]
Artists: Tom Morrill and Rebecca Naegele Exhibition title: No Angle of Attack Venue: 321 Gallery, New York, US Date: June 27 – August 8, 2015 Photography: images courtesy of the artists and 321 Gallery, New York Often times metaphor is used as a channel to illustrate perception against the (vertiginous) force of reality. A reality that has the inertia to pull apart the seams of our tentative understanding of what we see and how we feel. Escape Velocity is only achieved in conjunction with the proper application of machines that defy/belie these laws. With no angle of attack, there is no lift. No place to go. The rotors howl and just […]

Venue: Auditorio Blackberry, Mexico City
The second edition of Mexico City’s Material Art Fair presented a selective group of 40 galleries and artist-run project spaces — from 10 countries and over 20 cities — chosen by the fair’s 2015 selection committee, which was comprised of John Riepenhoff, artist and co-owner of Green Gallery, Milwaukee; Beatriz López, Co-Director of Instituto de Visión, Bogota; Chris Sharp, curator and co-founder of Lulu, Mexico City; and Gerardo Contreras, curator and director of Preteen Gallery.
The fair’s 2015 public program featured an engaging series of daily conversations organized by the New York City-based online publication, Triple Canopy, under the title “How Far is Near.” These included, “In Search of a Model for Life” with Felipe Ehrenberg, Waysatta Fernández, Juan Caloca, and Sofia Olascoaga; “Universal Methods of Design” with Maru Calva, José León Cerrillo, and Prem Krishnamurthy; and “How to Demand the Impossible” with John Gibler, Gabriela Jauregui, and Isaac Torres.
Anna Gritz, associate curator at South London Gallery, curated the fair’s video program, “Sand in the Vaseline,” which featured three individual programs for artists Adriana Lara, Sophia Al-Maria, and Stuart Middleton.
Mexico City-based Distrito Editorial created the fair’s bookstore, presenting an impeccable selection of artist books, books about art, and small, limited-edition works mostly by Mexican artists.
Finally, beneath the stage at the Auditorio Blackberry was the Material Exhibitors Club: an ambitious group exhibition, performance space, and pop-up mezcal bar organized by the Lower East Side art bar, Beverly’s, with complimentary mezcal provided by Gracias a Dios.
