Tim Kent

Enfilade

July 02, 2020 to August 29, 2020
Slag Gallery is pleased to present Enfilade,  a new body of paintings by artist Tim Kent. The exhibition is Kent's fourth solo show with Slag Gallery. "... Kent is an artist deeply cognizant of the relationship between art and power. From representations of gods and kings to the invention of spatial ordering systems like the perspective grid, the history of painting has its own relationship to power. Linear perspective exists to persuade the beholder with the power of illusion, simulating an extension of our three-dimensional world on a two-dimensional plane. Kent, a masterful architect of pictorial space, employs the mechanisms of traditional perspective and knowingly interferes with them, destabilizing the authority of the grid with suggestions of the metaphysical, the irrational, and the uncanny. ..." - Lee Hallman

July 02, 2020 to August 29, 2020
Slag Gallery is pleased to present, The Apocalypse - Sisyphus part IV, a new monumental sculpture by Marius Ritiu.  The exhibition is Ritiu's second solo show with Slag Gallery.  In 2019, Ritiu began the cycle entitled "Sisyphus" by creating rocklike copper sculptures that he dubbed “meteorites” and examining the way they can be contextualized in different environments. The project has reached its 4th episode: “The Apocalypse (Sisyphus part IV).” The previous segments are: "Highway to the Moon (Sisyphus part III)," "Rock 'n Roll (Sisyphus part II)," and "Milky Way (Sisyphus part I)."

Soft Stand, At Both Ends

July 02, 2020 to August 29, 2020
Slag Gallery is pleased to present Soft Stand, At Both Ends,  an outdoors site specific installation by artist Gabriela Salazar.  Soft Stand, At Both Ends is a re-staging of a work designed to evade a manageable form. Originally installed as Access Grove, Soft Stand within the trees in Socrates Sculpture Park—and now 8 outdoor months worse for wear—the tangled mass of faded and stained rope that is the heart of Soft Stand, At Both Ends now occupies the scaffolded and unswept back patio at Slag Gallery. Here, Soft Stand has reverted to an uncontrolled pile, flanked on either end of its 400-or-so continuous and coiled feet by a few dirty stanchions making mild effort to corral and give direction to the visceral heap between them. Slumping against the scaffold and trailing over the floor, Soft Stand, At Both Ends suggests an intermediary existence between presentation and storage.
