Night at the Galleries of The Lower East Side
Join ArtsClub for a night at the galleries of the Lower East Side, featuring Ondine Vinao’s Holy Fools at The Rubber Factory, De Forma at Shin Gallery, Under Erasure at Pierogi Gallery and and Elsewhere at Ulterior Gallery. Drinks will be provided at each gallery as we hear about the exhibitions first hand from the artists and gallerists.
Holy Fools at The Rubber Factory
Holy Fools is a nine channel video installation which probes Bruce Nauman's central ideas and devices from Clown Torture (1987) while exploring trauma intrinsic to female juvenescence. More details here.
De Forma at Shin Gallery
De Forma is a group exhibition featuring works by Gotthard Graubner, Gerrit Rietveld, Isamu Noguchi, and Ted Stamm. Utilizing paintings and furniture, the exhibition pairs design with visual art to question the formation of shapes and their metaphorical significance as a means of artistic expression. More details here.
Under Erasure at Pierogi Gallery
Taking its title from Jacques Derrida’s concept of “under erasure,” the exhibition will include both visual artists and contemporary writers whose works feature different forms of erasure. For Derrida (as for Heidegger before him) to put a word under erasure (sous rature) is to signal the inadequacy of inherited language while also recognizing its inevitability. Since Derrida introduced the concept of under erasure in his 1967 book Of Grammatology, this emphatically visual act of intervention has become an indispensable technique in diverse disciplines.

Elsewhere at Ulterior Gallery
Elsewhere, an exhibition of works on paper by Keren Benbenisty, George Bolster, Susannah Mira, and Gaku Tsutaja. These four artists’ works reflect a sense of dislocation or relocation, of the earthy and the unearthly in a state of flux. More details here.
