Underground on Broadway’s sister show Pop-Up New York has been extended until the 14th August to run next to Broadway Gallery’s next show “We Love New York?”.
To extend the show, we asked each artist to recommend a friend or colleague to show next to them – someone who would compliment them in terms of style or subject. Re-hung and expanded Pop-Up New York enjoyed a second opening last night alongside the art of “We Love New York?” which, coming predominantly from Newcastle, aimed to reflect ‘Britishness’. Once again an intriguing cultural dialogue was creating between two shows.
Julian Lorber (far left) picked two artists, Eric Riche and Max Carlos Martinez; both works identify with the style of his yet are incredibly different. Riche’s (centre) is an intricate piece of embroidery using delicate hair-thin thread; suspending on needles away from the wall, it is intricately compelling despite its size. This intricacy, the meticulous method, ties it to Lorber’s work which mirrors this in the shapes that materialise and multiply across his canvas. Both are articulated through natural and muted tones, and compositionally are halved with the curve of a wave. The difference in size between the two works only reinforces their tie in approach: they become similar in effect. Martinez’s work has this intricacy in his paint-by-numbers articulation, and as a three they explore the potential of detail and the manipulation of repetition.
Pop-Up New York Take Two will run at Broadway Gallery until the 14th of August, Monday – Saturday 10-6.
A little snippet of our opening on July 1st…
So it finally happened. We kicked off Underground on BROADWAY last night with a bang, with an opening that was busy, bustling, and full of people admiring all our artists amazing work. There were the New York artists, friends of the artists, friends of mine and, even better, complete randoms who’d come because they’d read about the opening and thought it sounded cool. One guy told me he was ‘preview hopping’ all evening, and if there was one show he wanted to definitely make it was ours because of the “young emerging artists”. That was you guys! It was a lovely evening and a good time was had by everyone involved. We streamed the whole thing so hopefully those in England got a chance to take a look. And if you’re in New York, come and say hello if you didn’t have a chance – we’re up until the 15th of July!
