Tuesday, October 1st, 2019
 Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Off The Grid, on view through October 24. This group show explores art inspired by the mathematics of rows and column and features ten artists: PAMELA ALLEN, DOUG ASHFORD, CAROLINE BLUM, LORI ELLISON (COURTESY OF MCKENZIE FINE ART), MAHMOUD HAMADANI, EUN VIVIAN LEE, DAVID REISMAN, AURA ROSENBERG, ANNE SAINT-PIERRE and KATE SNOW. Off The Grid was guest curated by Caroline Blum, an independent curator and artist.

Notes on Off The Grid by David Reisman:

From Excel spreadsheets to Google maps; from the tiles on the subway floor to the electrical systems that make the subway possible, grids are so much a part of our daily experience that they are sometimes ignored or taken for granted. Historically, artists have used grids as tools and as source material; for their practical applications for working out compositions and proportions; and as a means for enlarging and manipulating images in the pre-Photoshop era. Modernist abstract artists like Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, and Sol Lewitt were attracted to grids for their own sake, for their austere, no-nonsense quality that could simultaneously suggest modernity, mathematical thought and an aesthetic idealism reflecting a desire for human progress. More recent artists use grids in a more self-conscious, humorous, introspective or ironic way, showing some of the limits and possibilities of progressive ideas in current art. (more…)

Chantal Fabres Latin American Art (CF-LART) and Gazelli Art House are exhibiting at the third edition of Photo London taking place from 17th to 21st May at Somerset House.

About Chantal Fabres Latin American Art

With an unprecedented level of attention to a region that has had a sketchy representation in Europe and the United States, it is a great moment to look at photography from Latin America.

CF-LART’s mission aims to generate a dialogue that transcends the idea of a dominant stereotype of Latin American photography and that of Chile in particular. Chilean photography is generally associated to a select few internationally renown names such as Sergio Larrain, Alfredo Jaar and Paz Errazuriz. However, it stands for a great and rich visual history whose lesser known authors deserve to be recognized.

About Gazelli Art House

Gazelli Art House was founded in 2003 in Baku, Azerbaijan where it held exhibitions with Azeri artists.
