Michael Robinson’s video These Hammers Don’t Hurt Us (2010) was recently highlighted in an Art in America review for “Michael Jackson: On the Wall” at the National Portrait Gallery in London as “one of the most cogent works in the show”. Read the review here.
Min Song’s amazing wall relief sculpture ‘OOO OOO’ is on view starting today at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in the group exhibition “Personal Space”, curated by Allison Glen.
Anne Lindberg’s first solo museum exhibition in a NYC museum – the eye’s level – is currently on view at MAD through March 3, 2019.
“Lindberg’s installations provoke emotional, visceral, and perceptual responses to color, light, architecture, time, and movement. Interested in the relationship between deep thinking and composing, especially as the latter develops and unfolds through walking, Lindberg forefronts movement as a significant component in her making, characterizing her studio practice as a paced and daily conversation with place.”
Diana Guerrero-Maciá is participating in the group exhibition Waiting for a Sign at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, October 20, 2018 – January 12, 2019.
“Either figuratively or literally, and whether from God or Mother Nature, Waiting for a Sign explores the use of signage, text, and iconography-visual images and symbols-in the work of eight contemporary artists.”

Gallery artist Diana Guerrero-Maciá is currently participating in Through Her Eye at Mana Contemporary (in collaboration with ArtLeadHER and International Sculpture Center).

Both celebrating and problematizing “women’s work,” Through Her Eye situates a traditional methodology in a contemporary setting.
Through Her Eye is organized by Mana Contemporary Curatorial Director Ysabel Pinyol.
