Anton Solomoukha. Little Red Ridding Hood Visits the Grand Louvre.
PhotographyBlack Square Gallery opens its doors with a clever and attractive presentation of Photography work from Anton Solomoukha, titled: Little Red Ridding Hood Visits the Grand Louvre. Mixing the contemporary with a classic fairytale, Anton shows the mature and innocent spirit of Little Red Ridding Hood, experiencing and confronting the concentration of live throughout art, and imagining herself as part of the paintings and inspired by their representations of feelings and concepts.

The Artist premise that you can learn more history by looking at art than by reading books is the reason for taking the Little Ridding Hood to visit the Grand Louvre as well as to take her on his next visit to Chernobyl, another series of photographs that will be exhibit at Black Square Gallery this month.

Jesus Soto
Penetrable BBL Blue, 1999Enjoy this spectacular Soto at Durban Segnini new open space in Wynwood. Soto was a Venezuelan artist (1923 – 2005). He was a sculptor and painter and is most famous for his op art and kinetic art works. Soto is particularly well known for his penetrables, interactive sculptures which consist of square arrays of thin, dangling tubes through which observers can walk. It has been said of Soto's art that it is inseparable from the viewer; it can only stand completed in the illusion perceived by the mind as a result of observing the piece.

Durban-Segnini Gallery was founded in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1970 and in Miami, USA in 1992, by its present director and owner Mr. Cesar Segnini.

Durban-Segnini Gallery specializes in contemporary painting and sculpture, emphasizing in artists who have worked with abstract expressionism, geometric abstraction and kinetic art.Simultaneously, the Gallery strives to promote and diffuse new artistic values as well as the historical vanguards that have influenced those.

HaroldJoe Abbati, Interkinetic, 2010, Video Still, 8:00 min

October 9 – October 22
Joe Abbati. InterkineticAbbati's installations are the culmination of 20 years experience in music, technology and metaphysical inquiry. Greatly influenced by 20th century proponents of "new" and "total" art, his work relies on the simultaneity of force-relations, light, sound and motion. Joe Abbati is a Master of Fine Art (MFA) graduate student.

"I am not satisfied with the static principle of conventional art," the artist states. "As a contemporary artist, I am empowered by the tools available today - electricity and electric light, sensors, digital microcontrollers, lasers, audio synthesizers, video projectors; the apparatus that make dynamic art possible." Abbati aims to create simple enclosed systems of dynamic interactions within the gallery, to make audiences conscious of the interconnected, active processes occurring outside the gallery..

Lecture & Book Signing
Thursday October 7, 6:30 – 9 pm
Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss? By James Victore
Introduction by Michael Bierut.
Designed by Paul SahreAIGA Miami and New World School of the Arts invite you to attend a lecture by James Victore. This is the first book by one of the biggest names in graphic design today. James Victore leads readers through his “greatest hits” and tells the stories behind his inspirations, his process, and the lessons learned. Each page demonstrates his no-holds-barred take on the practice, business, and teaching of graphic design today. The result is an inspiring, funny, and honest book, which showcases 48 projects that have been plastered on the streets of New York, hung at MoMA, and featured in magazines all over the world.

Please join James Victore for a talk… on his new & first book. Over the past 25 years, the iconoclastic designer has strived for one thing in his work: “to make it personal.” Wrapped in a poster jacket designed by Victore, this book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the power of ink on paper.

Luis Cruz Azaceta. Trajectories / Trayectorias

Trajectories/Trayectorias is a major exhibit which will occupy the entire gallery, and will include several works from the solo show "Swimming to Havana" presented at the New Orleans Museum of Art earlier this year.

In the central piece of the exhibit “Hell Act" (2009) the artist ironically depicts a fleet of makeshift rafts aimlessly and helplessly bobbing around like toys in an enormous bath tub; the work illustrates the artist's constant struggle with the isolation, loss, and inexorability of being an immigrant.

Also included in the exhibit will be works like “Spill: Where is Superman when you need him” (2010) from his most recent series "Spill”. The piece touches on the inadequacies of human solutions and institutions in the face of catastrophe. There will also be sculptures, installations, and paintings from other recent periods included in the show.

Kanako Sasaki, Outcast, 200

Until October 30
Kanako Sasaki. Wanderlust“. . .So we should cast off all gloomy thoughts about our earthy lot and enjoy the pleasures of snow, moon, flowers and autumn leaves and drinking wine; living our lives like a gourd bobbing buoyantly downstream. This is the floating world.”  From the novels of c. 1665, Ukiyo Monogatari, Tales of the Floating World.

In her series Wanderlust, Kanako Sasaki (Japan, 1976) explores her own imaginative world influenced by traditional Japanese novels, Ukiyo-e paintings and childhood memories. In this inspired state, distracted from reality but informed by recollection, she composes her own floating world. Within her surreal and eccentric settings, Sasaki’s characters, usually herself, evoke ideas of isolation, escape and uninhibited freedom.The juxtaposition of bleak emotion within a fantastical landscape leaves the viewer mesmerized with wonderment.  Sasaki’s work also comments on issues such as the female experience, loss of innocence, hopeless romance and how Japanese culture is viewed from the outside.

Color ClimateThe two-person exhibition will feature new abstract painting installations by Brooklyn artist Matthew Deleget and Atlanta artist David E. Peterson.

Matthew Deleget is a conceptual, reductive painter who will present an installation of new Shuffle paintings. Informed by the “shuffle” feature on his iPod, each painting consists of a checkered grid of four colors completely selected at random, producing visual results that vary widely.These series of paintings are directly inspired by the legendary salsa ensemble Fania All-Stars.  Each will pay homage to a specific musician in the group, including Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz and Ray Barretto, among others.

David E. Peterson makes rule-based paintings that are informed by high-end industrial design goods, including laptop computers, athletic shoes, men’s fashion, and Modern architecture. (More) The three new suites paintings present his investigation into the formal qualities and associated consumer aspirations of three specific lines of designer goods, including Nixon’s Newton watch collection, Asics’ Onitsuka Tiger line of sneakers, and wallets designed by Paul Smith.

SIlvia Rivas. Landscape to Be Defined
To speak of the Rio de la Plata as a surface, as a setting, as a neutral platform.A search to define a landscape that attracts and shelters, yet later frightens and rejects.

Defining it by its minimal geometry, which does not capture one’s gaze, but rather in a subtle line on the horizon, in the color of the earth dissolved in the water... or the vibration of the light that gently weeps about what it hides in the soft texture of the plains.

The ever-present twinkling line of the horizon stands alone responding to the extremes of violence, of shelter, of lack and of abundance. The horizon is direction and certainty, beyond which an attainable reality can inevitably found.

The Every Other Day.
Curated by Donald Johnson Montenegro Featuring recent work by Carol Bove, Ernesto Burgos, Beth Campbell, Michael DeLucia, Andrés Ferrandis, Jonah Groeneboer, Charles Harlan, Tim Hyde, Zak Kitnick, Ian Pedigo, and Heather Rowe. An accompanying catalogue will be available on November 30 with essays by the curator and A.E. Benenson.How might the usual become unusual—how might the everyday become the every other day? The eleven artists included in this show each engage with this question. They emphasize the present but latent strangeness of the everyday materials and concepts with which they work, making the common uncommon through a subtle but potent subversion.

The “every other day” suggests an ongoing interruption of the everyday, a tactic that strives not for an isolated moment of shock but rather for a continual confrontation. It endeavors to weave its disruption into the fabric of the familiar, to create a continual hiccup in ordinary time. These artists use the tools and language of Minimalism, abstraction, architecture, and appropriation to make odd once again that to which we have become immune.

Much in the way that Minimalism compelled the viewer into a phenomenological interaction with the work, or that Pop enticed the viewer to turn a critical eye on mass culture, the work of these young artists draws the viewer to reconsider the possibilities of the ordinary.

Natasha Duwin exhibits sculptural objects and for the Opening Night she presents a special performance that is a surprising and poetic addition to her renowned work exploring the construction of the female identity, using mediums that have long been relegated to the worlds of labor and craft, such as embroidery and textiles. In fantastic multimedia constructions that combine text and preserved imagery, Donna Haynes will show new pieces telling visual narratives in her way to preserve and share personal journeys. One of the new members of the gallery, Mary Larsen, uses books and printed text as part of her mixed media paintings creating ethereal worlds of dreams, not quite recalled.

JOURNEYA thematic exhibition featuring works by chilean photographer Magdalena Correa and japanese video artist Hiraki Sawa.  JOURNEY, an exhibition curated by Emilio Navarro, presents a group of works that refers to internal and external journeys, one trough video exploring the intimate and personal world and one through photography discovering the world that surround us.

Accustomed to living between cultures, Japanese born and UK based video artist Hiraki Sawa (b.1977) embraces the movement of people and the mutable notion of home as central themes in his work.   .

The images captured by Chilean born and Spain based artist Magdalena Correa (b.1968), during her journey to the Antarctica, have a common denominator that is present in all of them: the snow.   Giving continuity to her past projects, Correa explores another isolated territory, geographically far from us, where the extreme and harsh weather conditions determine the development of the region and the way its inhabitants interact with nature.
