A few more fantastic items of note for your big apple art ingestion this week. (Once again, all text below images taken direct from press releases):
FICTIVE UNIVERSE GROUP SHOW at SPRING/BREAK:
Fictive Universe at SPRING/BREAK Art Show
Curated by Kari Adelaide + Max Razdow, Room 2317
Heidi Lau, Ann Lislegaard, Lorenzo De Los Angeles, Jeremy Olson, Max Razdow + Jamie Zigelbaum
This exhibition aims to use science fiction as a launching ground for investigations of the ineffable. The sculptures of Heidi Lau have been described as modes of being and growth formations that allow for survival but on a marvelously fragile basis, and Lorenzo De Los Angeles' drawings likewise use a mechanism of layering lines and symbol to envision a tenuous possibility of being. Jeremy Olson's paintings and miniature sculptures develop a halting future space which is a portal into the tactility of self and the unknowable. Max Razdow and Jamie Zigelbaum's collaborative science fiction novella "I We" dissolves individuation and uses the future as a metaphor for the lushness of potential incarnate experience. Ann Lislegaard's sculpture "The Flower From Weena," depicting a future artifact out of H.G. Wells' The Time Machine, presents the stretch of future-vision in a singular concrete form.

Fascism relies on the ideological narcissism of myth, but then the mythical can also resist rising nationalism. Professor-artists and Black Mirror Network co-coordinators Jesse Bransford and Dominic Shepherd (exhibiting at VOLTA NY with CHARLIE SMITH LONDON) explore this magical potential.
Guests: Jesse Bransford (artist and associate professor, NYU Steinhardt), Dominic Shepherd (artist and associate professor, Arts University of Bournemouth)
