    Marlborough Gallery is pleased to announce that Grisha Bruskin will speak at Oberlin College on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 7 p.m. Entitled “I and It (Works from The Soviet Project),” Bruskin will discuss the subject/object relationship in his ongoing series, The Soviet Project.

A prolific writer as well as visual artist, Bruskin's work is included in many permanent public collections, such as The Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York; The Jewish Museum, New York, New York; Kunsthalle Emden, Germany; State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, Russia; State Russian Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia, and Museo Galeria de Arte, Caracas, Venezuela.

    Work by Magdalena Abakanowicz and Stephen Talasnik included in 2011 Storm King Art Center Auction 

    Press Release

    Marlborough Gallery is pleased to have work by Magdalena Abakanowicz and Stephen Talasnik included in Storm King Art Center’s Annual Gala and Live Auction. The fundraiser takes place on Tuesday, October 11th at Christie’s New York. Both artists have a history with the Center: in 1994, Abakanowicz exhibited Sarcophagi in Glass Houses (1989) at Storm King and Talasnik created the site-specific Stream: A Folded Drawing there in 2010. Located in Mountainville, New York, the world-renowned Storm King Art Center features in its collection large-scale sculptures by preeminent artists such as Maya Lin, Richard Serra, Louise Nevelson, and Alexander Calder. Additionally, a temporary exhibition and installation program dots its 500 acres of rolling hills, fields, and woodlands.

    Born near Warsaw, Poland in 1930, Abakanowicz is a sculptor, textile artist, painter and printmaker. Whether two or three-dimensional, she uses the minimum amount of detail necessary to create associations for the viewer, but keeps the works open for individual interpretation. Her work can be found in collections worldwide including Centre Georges Pompidou, Musee National d'Art Moderne, Paris, France; Ludwig Museum, Cologne, Germany; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York; Sezon Museum, Tokyo, Japan; and Tate Modern, London, England.

    Talasnik was born in 1954 in Philadelphia. Primarily intrigued with structures defying gravity, he invents, through drawing and sculpture, engineering infused with curiosity for the otherworldly. Currently living and working in New York, New York, Stephen Talasnik's drawings and sculpture are in major international collections such as the British Museum, London, England; Fogg Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

    Robert Weingarten Featured in Smithsonian Institution Publication 

    A photograph by Robert Weingarten is featured on the cover of The Changing Face of Portrait Photography: From Daguerreotype to Digital by Shannon Thomas Perich (National Museum of American History, 2011).  This richly illustrated text devotes a chapter to Weingarten's Portraits Without People series.  The author has selected work from ten photographers represented in the Photographic History Collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to explore the history of portrait photography as well as to explain how changes in technology have allowed for new expressions of personal and national identities.  For more information please visit the Smithsonian Books website.

    Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Weingarten devoted the first thirty years after his graduation from Baruch College to a successful career in finance.  Passionate about photography from a young age, he pursued it as a hobby until he chose to commit himself fully to his passion fifteen years ago.  Since the 1990s, Robert Weingarten’s work has been shown in over eighty exhibitions in the United States and abroad. The Portraits Without People series was the subject of an exhibition at the High Museum of Art, Georgia entitled The Portrait Unbound (2010) and Robert Weingarten: Portraits Without People at Marlborough Chelsea in March 2011.  The series will be the subject of American Icons, Portraits without People by Robert Weingarten at the Smithsonian Institution’s International Gallery in Washington, D.C. (2012).

    Gran Elefandret (2008) by Miquel Barceló on View at the Union Square Triangle Beginning September 13, 2011 

    Sep 13 2011 - May 29 2012

    Press Release

    Marlborough Gallery is pleased to announce that the monumental sculpture Gran Elefandret, 2008, by renowned artist Miquel Barceló will be on view at the Union Square Triangle beginning September 13, 2011 through the end of May 2012. It is with great pleasure that the Gallery brings this monumental bronze sculpture to Union Square, a place that epitomizes New York’s unrivaled energy and serves as both a transportation and cultural bridge between uptown and downtown Manhattan. Barceló ’s immense Gran Elefandret, balances upright on its trunk, its four massive legs outspread searching for equilibrium. At twenty-six feet tall the sculpture brilliantly portrays an extraordinary, if not impossible physical and cultural feat; this contemporary monument believably captures with humor, scale and Spanish courage the essence of what a public monument can be today.

    Union Square Partnership Executive Director Jennifer Falk reports that “with thousands of visitors daily, Union Square is one of the busiest public art galleries in the world, and our ‘Art in the Park’ program reaches new heights with the installation of Miquel Barceló’s monumental sculpture Gran Elefandret, in the park’s triangle; we are proud that Marlborough Gallery has chosen Union Square Park as the backdrop for this incredible feat of engineering. Gran Elefandret is a reflection of the energy in this neighborhood and we look forward to seeing visitors’ reactions to the sculpture as they create their own unique experience in Union Square.”
