Allan Wexler: Breaking Ground
Ronald Feldman Fine Arts
31 Mercer Street, New York
Through May 3, 2014
The current Allan Wexler exhibit, Breaking Ground, at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts proves again how important is the work of architects who confine their production to the gallery. In the new exhibit, Wexler explores mankind’s first interventions into landscape with a series of photo-based images and sculpture. Wexler first builds models of his imagined landscapes out of plaster and museum board before photographing them and digitally manipulating and printing them. The Architect’s Newspaper will celebrate Wexler’s extraordinary forty five year career with a special reception at the Feldman gallery Tuesday, April, 29th from 6:00–8:00p.m.
Wexler will be present to discuss his work and read a selection from his current preoccupation of business cards “Allan Wexler, What kind of work do you do?” With a Tuesday Storefront for Art and Architecture opening Letters To The Mayor (7:00-9:00) and the ongoing exhibits Lebbeus Woods at the Drawing Center (35 Wooster Street ) and Heidi Bucher at the Swiss Institute (18 Wooster Street) would be easy to swing by these major architecture events and then end up at The Feldman gallery at 31 Mercer Street.Sheathing the Rift, 2014.
