VÄLKOMMEN TILL KONSTNÄRSSAMTAL MELLAN MARTIN WICKSTRÖM OCH FÖRFATTAREN HANS GUNNARSSON.
TORSDAGEN 17 SEPTEMBER KLOCKAN 17.00 - 18.30.
Jack Shainman Gallery is pleased to announce Enrique Martínez Celaya’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, Empires: Sea and Empires: Land. This exhibition, in two parts, comprises an interconnected group of new works that are revealed, hidden, or undermined by each other to create an experience that is simultaneously visceral and elusive.
Working in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, needlepoint and installation, as well as poetry and other writing, Martínez Celaya has created a new body of work characterized by the allusive complexity, emotional presence and intellectual rigor that he has developed over the past two decades. He blends reality, fantasy and memory to create a world that is both semi-autobiographical and resonantly universal. His visual language approaches aspects of experience often addressed through literature, religion and philosophy such as the individual search for authenticity and belonging, the limitations of self-knowledge, the tension between possibility and regret, and the consequences of a stunted inner life. The cumulative result explores the dynamics of will as we navigate a world that is often resistant to our strivings and regrets.

UB Anderson Gallery presents Robert De Niro, Sr. and Irving Feldman: Painter and Poet at UB in the late 60s
August 19, 2015, Buffalo, N.Y. ----The University at Buffalo Anderson Gallery and The Poetry Collection, University Libraries, University at Buffalo are pleased to present a collaborative exhibition, Robert De Niro, Sr. and Irving Feldman: Painter and Poet at UB in the Late 60s. The exhibition is co-curated by Sandra H. Olsen, Director of the UB Art Galleries and Michael Basinski, Curator, The Poetry Collection of the University Libraries.
In 1962, the private University at Buffalo joined the burgeoning State University of New York system and established its reputation as a major public research institution of higher learning by assembling a group of progressive and innovative artists from across all the artistic disciplines. Creativity was the focus. In 1964 Jan Williams, a percussion soloist and conductor, was invited by Lukas Foss and Allan Sapp to become a Creative Associate in the newly formed Center of the Creative and Performing Arts at UB. That same year, Irving Feldman, renowned poet and a MacArthur Foundation Fellow, arrived in UB's English Department. Novelist John Barth was also a member of the English Department. In a recent gift to UB's Poetry Collection Barth's inscription reads, "To the UB libraries with fond memories of my time there in the "High 60s."
