Bronx Museum of the Arts  Wednesday, 11/14, 6p: Opening Reception for Christopher K. Ho: Aloha to the World at the Don Ho Terrace and Eddie Martinez: White Outs.

You're invited to the opening reception for Eddie Martinez White Outs, Wednesday 11\14, 6pm.
Widely recognized for his large scale paintings that incorporate silkscreens of blown up drawings, Eddie Martinez has built a consistent body of work over the last decade successfully merging the tradition of American abstract painting with the energy of the street. In this new body of work, created especially for this exhibition, Martinez introduces yet a new element to his process in the guise of whiting out parts of the composition, a move that represents a significant point in his career.

ROCHELLE FEINSTEIN: IMAGE OF AN IMAGE
November 7, 2018 to March 3, 2019
Opening Reception 11/7, 6pm at the #BronxMuseum

The work of Bronx native Rochelle Feinstein is deeply informed by abstraction, while also conveying a keen sensibility to contemporary culture, particularly to our everyday use of language. Over the span of the last four decades, Feinstein has probed the relevance of the abstract painting tradition vis-a-vis a rapidly changing cultural environment. She has used the lexicon of abstract painting to approach subjects of both personal and social import such as the televised police pursuit of OJ Simpson (El Bronco, 1994); the Iraq war (Hotspots, 2003 - ongoing), and the economic downturn of 2008 (The Estate of Rochelle F., 2010). Although Feinstein has always played an important role in the contemporary art scene, especially as a professor of painting at Yale University from 1994 to 2018 and her engagement and support for younger generations of artists, Image of an Image is the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s work in the United States. This exhibition will provide audiences the unique opportunity to engage with and learn about the work of a highly original artist. It follows a critically acclaimed three-venue retrospective of Feinstein in Switzerland and Germany in 2015-2016, in which each venue presented a modified version of the exhibition

1000 WORDS: ROCHELLE FEINSTEIN
Rochelle Feinstein talks about her survey at the Bronx Museum of the Arts

ROCHELLE FEINSTEIN’S paintings pack punches and punch lines, yet the jokes are so bleak they can be hard to laugh at. The ebullient, Helen Frankenthaler-esque In Anticipation of Women’s History Month, 2013, may at first suggest earnest excitement about the commemoration of women’s achievements that occurs every March. Round pin-back buttons—variously displaying a tiny curtsying Minnie Mouse and a suffragette—are stuck into the colorful stained canvas. Yet a glittering black heart at the painting’s center gives the game away: The work is, in fact, acidly ironic and tinged with melancholy, meant to underscore the patriarchal system that deems “women’s history”—the contributions of more than 50 percent of the human population—as a category distinct from “history” itself.Feinstein’s work is funny, feminist, and furious - Jennifer Kabat, @artforum #RochelleFeinstein

ODE TO MENDIVE: NATURE, SPIRIT AND BODY CLOSING EVENT

Sunday, November 4, 2018, 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Join us for the closing for Manuel Mendive: Nature, Spirit and Body with live praise poetry and music by Afro-cuban artist Orlando Ferrand and master percussionist Roman Diaz, featuring special praise poem readings by youth from P.S. 73 Highbridge.

Over the last fifty years, Cuban artist Manuel Mendive has developed a sophisticated and pointed examination of the influence of African oral-based traditions on Cuba through the experimental lens of contemporary art. His multidisciplinary work, in particular performances, has become a vehicle for exploring the intersections between art, religion, philosophy, politics, ethics, and anthropology. 📸 @sustainablepapi & @argenisphoto
