Time is both an abstract and the underlying structure governing modern civilization. It is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future. It is a measurement, it is currency, it is a standard.

Clarissa Tossin: Encontro das Águas (Meeting of Waters)



Opening Reception at JOAN on Oct. 8th from 6pm-8pm.

JOAN is pleased to present Clarissa Tossin: Encontro das Águas (Meeting of Waters), a delicate and ambitious large-scale installation. Combining the basket weaving patterns of the indigenous Baniwa people, native to the Brazilian Amazon, with satellite images depicting the 900-miles (1,448 kilometers) of the Amazon River from the Manaus Basin (or Port of Manaus) in Brazil to its equatorial drainage point in the Atlantic Ocean, Tossin created an enormous tapestry whose cuts and weaves evoke the divide between two systems of representation–cultural and ideological—that exist in Manaus itself.

Hunter Drohojowska-Philp Reviews Billy Al Bengston’s Current Exhibition

Miklos, 1965


Another artist influenced by Voulkos and ceramics in the 1960s is Billy Al Bengston. A wide ranging survey of his paintings from that time to the present is on view at Samuel Freeman through October 29. Selected from the artist’s studio, there are many surprises including a couple of 1965 muted trapezoids with chevrons in the center.

In addition, there is a boutique of sorts, “Billy’s World,” based on Jams World, maker of the Hawaiian shirts favored by Bengston and for $2200 you can own a customized shirt with patterns of leaves and orchids echoing those on the paintings.
