Hot Edges
Rachel Gisela Cohen and Carlos Rosales-Silva

Hot Edges is a site-specific installation and collaboration between New York City-based artists Rachel Gisela Cohen and Carlos Rosales-Silva. Both artists\' work is based in a language of painting and abstraction, which relies heavily on elements of texture and visual play. For this collaboration, Carlos Rosales-Silva will begin the installation by creating a large mural wall painting, as Cohen will cut, stretch, and staple various layers of collected and recycled textiles throughout the space.

Fantasia
by The Art Students League of New York

In its first Exhibition Outreach show with Chashama, The Art Students League of New York presents: Fantasia.

Fantasia is an eclectic series of works by League students working across a range of media. This show’s mixture of forms, like its musical namesake, celebrates spontaneity and the gathering of distinct styles to create harmony. This year's global health emergency has greatly impacted artists but has not drained their inspiration nor halted their practices. As the city slowly starts to reawaken, we invite you into the imaginations of artists who have continued composing through the pandemic.

Sonic Sunlight
Sasha vom Dorp

Vom Dorp brings you evidence of a minute history, in which no instance is petty and every instant too complex to perceive in its entirety. A moment is all time, an atom the universe. These photographs aim to capture the beauty and turmoil that occurs inside the most pedestrian events. Sunlight bounces on water, sound waves march toward oblivion.

9 Months 2 Seasons
Myke Karlowski

Myke Karlowski’s work focuses on the passage of time and his own experiences with time-space synesthesia. The palette throughout the work translates moments and units of time into color. Routine layering and manipulation of the painting surface further exposes each piece to time through accumulation and erosion. Each painting is a journal of real and personal events and an artifact reflecting its own history of development.

New Paintings
David Bender

The complex interconnectedness of everything. It's a pretty grandiose statement, but it's really just another way of saying that we are all connected; made from the same stuff that formed our Sun, Earth and the rest of the universe. The group of paintings that will be exhibited are about his presence in the universe.

There Is Too Much to Discuss
Lee Russell Holin

As a lifelong New Yorker and street artist for over a decade, Lee Holin has been able to witness first-hand the rapidly shifting landscape and expedited gentrification occurring in every usable corner of post-9/11 Manhattan and its surrounding boroughs. From SoHo to Brownsville, spaces once adorned with graffiti and urban art representing the voice of a neighborhood began to vanish, and along with them the inhabitants who could no longer afford to live there.
