Mia Enell: Large Paintings at Bienvenu Steinberg & Partner.
The exhibition opens March 3rd and runs through April 2nd, 2022.
35 Walker St, New York, NY 10013

Large Paintings is the first exhibition of Mia Enell, a Swedish born interdisciplinary artist, with Bienvenu Steinberg & Partner. Ennell’s work is both interior and idiosyncratic. Alaina Claire Feldman, Director and Curator of Mishkin Gallery, notes: “In traditional Scandinavian fashion, Enell summons the dark humor of her Swedish roots in order to grapple with expressing that which is typically somber. When Enell flattens the imagery of taboos on her canvas, they become comic parables and make truth more digestible”. Enell’s work has been exhibited at Emmanuel Barbault Gallery, Son Espace Gallery, Gallery Edward Mitterand, and the Independent Center for Art & Photography, amongst others.

4000+ Years of African Art organized by Destinee Ross-Sutton and Charles Moreau andat Wall House Museum of St. Barth
The exhibition opens March 11, 2022 and runs through May 31, 2022
V4WX+H4F, Gustavia 97133, St. Barthélemy

Curated by Destinee Ross-Sutton and Charles Moreau, 4000+ Years of African Art contains almost 180 African artworks, including those from less familiar African antiquities. The exhibition aims to challenge Eurocentric and monolithic notions of art history. Ranging from Neolithic sculptures from 400,000 BC to Nigerian terracottas from 1000 BC to 0 AD to contemporary work, the exhibition alludes to the breadth of African art practices and establishes relationships between works across time. Ross-Sutton, a rising curator and art advisor specializing in African Art has curated the contemporary work, which features artists such as Romauld Hazoumé and Oluwole Omofemi. It is the first public African Art show in St. Barthes. Ross-Sutton emphasizes: “Some say the appreciation of Black art is a trend, but Black art in itself is no more a trend than ‘white art.’ It’s part of world culture, of art history, and history is being made every day. Black art should be appreciated for its contribution to humanity and history.”

Opening Reception April 1, 6-8PM

Carrie Moyer: Morphologies at DC Moore Gallery.
The exhibit runs from April 1–30th, 2022.
535 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011

In this exhibition, Moyer places new works on paper around a single painting. The term morphology, which refers to the biological study of forms, refers to the natural forms within the artist’s work. Moyer’s work pays tribute to influential female expressionists, including Georgia O’Keeffe and Helen Frankenthaler. Rich with metaphorical significance, her work alludes to landscapes, plants, animals, and visceral emotional states. On her process, Moyer notes: “On paper, my fondness for a comic, sci-fi sensibility turns metaphysical and atmospheric through the repeated process of staining, salting, and spraying the surface with inks and water. Everything is saturated.”
