GROUP SHOW

EARTHA

November 7 – December 19, 2020

Adams and Ollman is pleased to present the group

exhibition Eartha. Using painting as a common language,

the artists included in Eartha examine the concept of the

natural world and their relationship to it. Together, the

works offer a different way of being in the world, one that

is personal, interconnected, and spiritual, while raising

questions of representation, politics, gender and pleasure. 

Artists included in the exhibition are Hayley Barker,

Amy Bay, Mariel Capanna, Emma Cook, Ann Craven,

Ka’ila Farrell-Smith, and Maureen St. Vincent.

(NOTHING BUT) FLOWERS

(NOTHING BUT) FLOWERS at KARMA

By: Alfred Mac Adam

September 2020

“…Craven, unlike Katz, stays close to nature—the pansy

again—but here she immerses usin the flower itself as she

recreates it. Color,patterns, even trompe-l’oeil: all of Craven’s

signature tools, but deployed now in such away that her

powers are fully released.”

MATERIA MEDICA at FRANCOIS GHEBALY

By: Paul Laster

Presenting artworks that are about nature and
also derived from it, Materia Medica offers a
combination of pseudo-scientific and surreal pieces
to illustrate the perils of our exploitation of the
environment. Curated by multidisciplinary artist
Kelly Akashi, who poses the questions “What does
nature own?” and “What will be inherited when humans
are gone?” in her esoteric exhibition statement,
the show focuses on materials and working methods that
address our fragile relationship with the natural world.

HYPERALLERGIC

INTERVIEWS

ARTISTS QUARANTINE WITH THEIR COLLECTIONS

By: Stephen Maine

August 1, 2020

Avery Z. Nelson

Over the past four months I have returned to Craven’s painting

frequently. As I listened to the incessant sirens shriek death up

First Avenue in April, I found serenity, beauty, and decay in Craven’s

flower. As I marched in the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn

during the mayor’s bullshit curfew and police bulldozed into us,

arrested us, beat us, and continued to do their daily job of terrorizing

and murdering Black lives, I began to see the three flowers as a single

flower in motion, either bleeding down into the earth or floating up

into the sky — maybe both at once.

FOOD BANK FOR NEW YORK CITY: EMERGENCY BENEFIT AUCTION

ARTSY

April 24, 2020

We are delighted to present an auction to benefit Food Bank For New York City.

This online auction offers the opportunity to purchase works

donated by nearly 100 of today’s most exciting artists, representing

a wide range of practices, backgrounds, and experiences. The incredible

response from artists across all walks of life reflects a call for unity and

collective transformative action.

Some of the artists include:

Dana Schutz, Katherine Bernhardt, Ross Bleckner, Nicole Eisenman, Cecily Brown,

Peter Halley, Ann Craven, Lyle Ashton Harris, Keltie Ferris, James Siena,

Jeffrey Gibson, Cindy Ji Hye Kim, Felipe Baeza, Salman Toor, Devan Shimoyama,

Louis Fratino, Marilyn Minter, Alison Rossiter, Betty Tompkins, Didier William,

Jordan Kasey, Sanya Kantarovsky, Elinor Carucci, and many more.

Organized by artist Doron Langberg, facilitated by Yossi Milo Gallery, and powered

by Artsy, the auction will benefit Food Bank For New York City. As the city’s leading

hunger-relief organization, Food Bank provides emergency meals, fresh produce,

and household supplies for low-income New Yorkers, families with school-aged

children, seniors at high-risk of infection, and healthcare workers.

In this “new normal” of social distancing, shuttered businesses, lost wages, and

closed schools thousands more New Yorkers are facing food insecurity. “As artists,

we are uniquely positioned to leverage the power of our work and of our community

to help the ones most affected,” explains Langberg. “Putting together this auction

gave me a feeling of agency which so many of us need right now.”

Founded in 1983, the mission of Food Bank For New York City is to end hunger by

organizing food, information and support for community survival and dignity.

At least 1.4 million New Yorkers rely on its services, with a network of approximately

1,200 emergency and community food providers, including soup kitchens, food

pantries, shelters, low-income day care centers, as well as senior, youth and

rehabilitation centers.
