July 21-November 4, 2018

Nothing in art is more powerful than color. From the shock effect the Fauves (“Wild Beasts”) and the rainbows of Delaunay and Kandinsky to the seductive radiance of neon, the story of color is a tale of wonder. The full range of color’s magic is on display in this exuberant show of over 100 works from the original master of color, Titian, to this moment’s hottest talents. The roll call of the great colorists in the show is a hit parade of art history’s most exciting names: Kandinsky, Hofmann, Klee, Albers, Rothko, Warhol, Joan Mitchell, Yves Klein, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, David Hockney, Wolf Kahn, Peter Halley, Joseph Kosuth, Juan Usle, Nathan Slate Joseph and Callum Innes. The Titian, the only one on view on Long Island, will be presented in a dramatic installation in the library of the former Frick mansion. A painting by Greta Garbo’s brother Sven Gustafson, together with one of the Hollywood star’s favorite works from her “wall of color” in the East Side Manhattan where her collection was on view, have been loaned by her heirs. Among the other lenders to the show are the most important galleries and private collections in the region, including Pace, Kasmin, Sean Kelly, Cheim and Read, Yares, Eric Firestone, Asher B. Edelman and Marc Strauss.  

The show also introduces rising stars of the Contemporary scene, such as Miya Ando, Doug Argue, Deborah Kass, and Keith Sonnier. A remodeled gallery will hold huge Color Field and Neo-Geo works, and a wall of display cases will present the pastel glassware designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, whose paintings are the core of the Museum’s holdings. Among the significant Long Island-based talents in the show, a huge watercolor by Barbara Ernst Prey, an installation by Nathan Slate Joseph, and paintings by Scott McIntire are part of the show.

Programming for the show has been underwritten by Lord & Taylor, part of their celebration of the remodeling of the Manhasset store. There will be two “curated” concerts by local chamber ensembles, the pieces selected to match the contents of the show, as well as a symposium featuring many of the greatest experts on color in design, fashion, film and psychology (including Donald Kaufman, one of the top color minds in the world), as well as artist talks, lectures, Manhattan gallery tours and a director’s seminar held in his private office.

Potent even to the point of being considered dangerous, color is the most exciting element of art, the strongest tool in the toolbox. Because it is also a largely uncontrollable force, it remains the most vital source of new art. “Color, above all, is a means of liberation,” Matisse declared. 

Here is a partial list of artists included:

Titian

Henri Matisse

Robert and Sonia Delaunay

Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Wassily Kandinsky

Franz Marc

Mark Rothko

Hans Hofmann

Ellsworth Kelly

Andy Warhol

Yves Klein

Alfred Jensen

Arthur Carter

Callum Innes

Joseph Kosuth

Frank Stella

Wolf Kahn

David Hockney

James Nares

Robert Motherwell

Peter Halley

Nathan Slate Joseph

Juan Usle

Joan Mitchell

Miya Ando

Deborah Kass

Larry Poons

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with essays by curator Charles A. Riley II, PhD, whose book Color Codes is on the required reading list of many art programs including the Rhode Island School of Design, Yale and MIT. In addition, the exhibition will be the center of demonstrations of color theory and technique and classes in painting and drawing at the Manes Family Educational Center that are specifically tailored to the content of the show. The emphasis of the programming will be an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of color, weaving art and music, psychology, literature, philosophy and design.

GOTHAM MAGAZINE: 5 NOT-TO-BE-MISSED ART HAPPENINGS IN NYC

By Gary Duff | May 17, 2018 | Culture

SHARE 

Artists abound in NYC, which makes the Big Apple the perfect place to get inspiration. Here are five not-to-be-missed art events happening right now. 

Miya Ando: Clouds

Now through August 19, art aficionados can view Miya Ando's latest sculptures at the intimate indoor-outdoor Noguchi Museum in Astoria, Queens. The two site-specific pieces, suspended plate-glass sculptures with images of clouds etched internally, were inspired by the Japanese zengo: “Blue mountain does not move. White cloud comes and goes naturally.” Ando will take part in an onsite discussion on June 3 with the museum's Senior Curator, Dakin Hart, about her new pieces.

Raised in a Buddhist temple by the sea in Okayama, Japan, and on 25-acres of redwood forest in coastal Northern California, artist Miya Ando has always been drawn to the immaterial quality of fog and clouds. She began creating images of clouds in glass cubes and slabs in 2011. Pushing the limits of commercial laser etching technology from the outset, she started small. By collaborating with a highly specialized factory, she has been able to gradually enlarge them. The two examples for the Museum, the first she has decided to hang— Haku-Un (White Cloud) 4.8.1 , the largest to date, and  Haku-Un (White Cloud) 3.3.1 —take the work in a new, more environmental direction.  The pairing of her clouds with Noguchi’s large basalt sculptures was inspired by a Japanese  zengo  (or Zen phrase): “Blue mountain does not move. White cloud comes and goes naturally.” Although the etched image of clouds in the glass is static, the surface of the glass seems to move, as it mirrors changes in the environment. Meanwhile, the clouds shift in and out of sight as viewers walk around them. Seeming to expand and collapse in the charged landscape of the Museum’s indoor-outdoor gallery (Area 1), they are a conceptual and perceptual analogue for Noguchi’s collapsible Akari light sculptures—the subject of the Museum’s current exhibition   Akari: Sculpture by Other Means .   About Miya Ando  Miya Ando is based in New York City and Los Angeles. Her work has been the subject of international solo exhibitions including at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design), Savannah, GA; Shibuya Seibu, Tokyo, Japan; Sundaram Tagore Gallery, New York, NY; and Lesley Kehoe Galleries, Melbourne, Australia.

Solo exhibition San francisco “OBOROZUKI” (MOON OBSCURED BY CLOUDS)

IMG_4521.JPG

https://www.sfstation.com/miya-ando-oborozuki-e2336108

 

Nancy Toomey Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Miya Ando entitled "Oborozuki" (Moon Obscured by Clouds) on view from January 4 to February 17, 2018.

 

Miya Ando's inspiration for this exhibition is the Japanese word Oborozuki, meaning "the moon obscured by clouds." Pieces in the show, Ando's second at Nancy Toomey Fine Art, include a new series of paintings on aluminum entitled Yoake (Dawn), ink on aluminum called Kumo (Cloud), as well as works on paper, Gekkou (Moonlight).

 

The word "Oborozuki" in Japanese means "The moon obscured by clouds". Ando's inspiration for the theme of this exhibition is derived from the oldest known Japanese novel entitled " the tale of genji". Written by Murasaki Shikibu, the book is composed of minute, poetic observations of nature by it's lead female protagonist, Lady Murasaki. This ancient novel takes as its premise the fundamental interconnectivity of all things, and the fleeting, transitory awareness this recognition engenders. Nature is depicted not as a force, but as the vehicle that inspires in us contemplation and reverie.

 

A 48 x 96 inch painting (pigment, dye, urethane, resin, aluminum) from the new series "Yoake" (Dawn) as well as ink on aluminum alucore "Kumo" (Cloud) paintings in addition to works on paper from the series "Gekkou" (Moonlight) will be on view.

 

The works in this exhibition are an ongoing investigation into time and temporality. Ando employs visual vocabulary drawn from natural phenomena and reimagines it utilizing metal-based materials. Her paintings of cloud phenomena become a frozen record in time, focusing on the transformative power of shifting light. The works echo the way the sun changes the quality of light in the sky to obscure the true color of everything it strikes.

 

Created by painting on sheets of aluminum with chemicals and then manipulating color and texture using heat, sandpaper, dyes, and other processes, these works nonetheless contain tremendous spiritual depth.

 

Highly industrial and technically painstaking, Ando's works evoke a meditative quality, born from her own cultural roots and her ongoing Buddhist practice.

 

On Display until February 17, 2018.
