JUDITH HUDSON: PLAYBOY ADVISOR
An 'apple box' is a piece of equipment most often found on film sets and used as a riser to bring props in and out of a camera's frame. In this show, sixty of these boxes have been transformed into a daybed on which visitors to the gallery are invited to sit or lie. Also, on the walls of the exhibition are several new pieces that, like the Daybed, recontextualize the visual language of contemporary film production.
Opening reception of Miller v/s Miller today at Benrimon Contemporary, Thursday June 23rd 5PM- 9PM. Featuring artists Nachume and Danny Miller.
This exhibition is a visual exploration of Nachume Miller’s legacy, not only as a painter but as a mentor and father. It captures how Danny Miller has built upon this influence to branch out, and create his own unique style.

Performing Coordinates: Cityscapes Revised
Curated by Zoe Lukov
Opening reception June 22nd, 6-9pm
Abrazo Interno Gallery at CSV: 107 Suffolk Street
Featuring works by: Carlton DeWoody, Lucas Flores Piran, Chibi Lai, Wayne Liu, Zenith Richards, Reyes Santiago Rojas and Georgia Wall
Using the Clemente Sato Velez Center and its presence in New York's Lower East Side as a point of departure, Performing Coordinates: Cityscapes Revised investigates the performance of our individual identities upon the layered physical spaces we inhabit. The LES is the neighborhood in which new immigrants to NY have settled and where today hipsters, scenesters, artists and young professionals lay claim to the stories, cultures and peoples that define this contested territory. Performing Coordinates seeks to re-envision the cartography of the city as a palimpsest of histories that engage and affect the people who occupy it.

WILLIAM N. COPLEY X-RATED
Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present William N. Copley X-RATED, a large-scale recreation of the artist’s 1974 exhibition in the former Huntington Hartford Museum on Columbus Circle. Highly original, libidinous, and unapologeticly joyful, the paintings were unlike anything being made at that time.
This body of work, painted between 1972 and 1974, represents a pivotal leap in the artist’s style and is rich with irreverent yet ambitious compositions, unbridled combinations of highly-keyed colors, and generous doses of off-beat humor.
CPLY (the artist’s self-chosen moniker) here presents single figures, pairs, and the occasional group–their gestures and actions translated from magazines procured in seedy 42nd street emporiums–posing and coupling eagerly amid vivid arrays of abstract patterns and lyrical motifs, romping furniture, and tilting planes of scumbled color. Throughout, CPLY strives to uncover the joy and poetry in this most unlikely of subjects, with the belief that “humor, after all is the reminder that we are mortal.” It is a body of work that stands alone in Copley’s ouvre and resolutely apart from the driving narratives in the contemporary art world of the early 1970s.
As a painter, writer, gallerist, supporter, and publisher, the artist blazed a singular path through numerous territories of post-war art, along the way charting a vital link between the European Surrealist and the American Pop Art movements. A fully-illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition, featuring a new essay by Anne Doran and a reprinting of CPLY’s memoir Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dealer, an outrageous chronicle of his short-lived but legendary Surrealist gallery in Beverly Hills.
William N. Copley was born in 1919 and passed away in 1996. His work is in private and public collections worldwide. CPLY has been the subject of numerous single artist shows and a traveling retrospective at the Kunsthalle Bern, Centre Georges Pompidou, and the Stedelijk Van Abbesmuseum, and has taken part in important group exhibitions including in documenta 5 and documenta 7.
“There is no art in the world that looks like the art of Bill Copley.” – Ed Ruscha

“Cply cmpltly cptvts me.” – Roy Lichtenstein
“Copley est un rire de nuage.” – Jean Arp

The Opening of Robert Capa’s Mexican Suitcase
Many of us know the story of Robert Capa, the revered war photographer who gave the world insight into the action and violence of battle from a close up, outsider perspective. However, many of us don’t know about the Mexican Suitcase.
The last contact with the film occurred in Paris. Left behind with a friend for safekeeping before Capa fled to New York to escape the onslaught of German soldiers, the boxes disappeared during the course of the war.
After attempts by his brother, Cornell Capa to recover the missing negatives in the late seventies, and close to 80 years of dead end searches, the images these negatives hold will finally be seen by the public.
The exhibition is organized by assistant curater Cynthia Young. The Mexican Suitcase provides an important and historical context for the work of three impassioned war photographers, and in doing so may call to mind the missing negatives of a more current state of war.
