Markthalle // Basel, Switzerland

VOLTA is Basel’s renowned platform for presenting the vision of contemporary art galleries of global prestige whose artists represent new and relevant positions for curators and collectors alike.

Conceived to bridge a gap between Basel’s pre-existing fairs, VOLTA showcases galleries – whether young or mature – that choose to work with the most exciting emerging artists. These galleries must keep deeply meaningful connections with their artists and follow them throughout their careers. In turn, select galleries exhibit in the airy rotunda surroundings of Basel’s Markthalle, elevating their own platforms for an experience mutually beneficial to fair visitors and the galleries alike.

S, M, L: Recent Paintings

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present S, M, L: Recent Paintings by ANDREA BELAG. This is BELAG’s first solo exhibition in seven years as well as her solo exhibition debut with DCKT Contemporary.

BELAG’s paintings boast an intimacy despite their apparent speed. The path of pulling a cloth or paintbrush through transparent paint gives each painting emotional weight and the luminous depth of an interior space. BELAG does not disguise the traces of her hand. She developed her paintings with both agency and chance, choosing her palette from a catalogue of Japanese color combinations and employing knives, spatulas, paper towels and large paint brushes.

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present a new installation by castaneda/reiman, cast on the ground or some surface, utilizing the artists’ shared personal collections as both material and catalyst. castaneda/reiman’s fascination with found landscapes unites with their ongoing attention to the relationship between the natural landscape and the desire for its representation within domestic spaces.

Shorthand

Andrea Belag, Jamison Brosseau, Shawn Kuruneru, Brion Nuda Rosch

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Shorthand, a group exhibition curated by Trudy Benson and Russell Tyler. Shorthand brings together four artists whose works impart eloquent, direct brevity. Each artist’s process is manifest in the finished work and is tied to its perception. As in shorthand, where a symbol often takes the place of an entire word or phrase, the resulting works by these four artists are manifestations of their own techniques.

Super Colliders

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Super Colliders, recent paintings by TIMOTHY TOMPKINS. The glossy enamel paintings on aluminum depict abstracted images of the internal components of the Large Hadron Collider, which lies in a tunnel seventeen miles in circumference deep beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. TOMPKINS’s otherworldly paintings reference the line and symmetry of Gothic rose windows of European cathedrals.

Analogue Future

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Analogue Future, RUSSELL TYLER’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Influenced by the crude digital landscapes of outdated 8-bit graphics and the utopian visions of 1960s and 1970s science fiction films, TYLER’s heavily impastoed oil paintings are the legacy of unmet hopes and promised ideals.

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Their Arising and Passing Away, MICHAEL VELLIQUETTE’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. A full color catalog will be available, with essays by Sara Krajewski, Evan J. Garza, Hamlett Dobbins and Marc Mitchell. VELLIQUETTE’s sculptural cut paper constructions insist on a new spiritual vocabulary, combining aspects of early 20th century formalism and contemporary sensibilities about the handmade with the visual lexicon he has developed over the past decade. VELLIQUETTE’s vocabulary is bright, dense and ornamental, punctuated with recurring motifs such as hands, eyes, flowers, planets, mandalas and goofy, smiley faces.

Oblivious Path

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Oblivious Path, MATTHEW CRAVEN’s first solo show with the gallery. Archaeological remains and ruins act as backdrops for forming crypto-historical collages and drawings. Images from lost cultures, relics and landscapes both well-known and extremely ambiguous create the patterns within the works. The results are compositions that highlight a new connection to our past in an aesthetic that is intended to be both cinematic in scope and visionary in perspective.

Criminal Minded

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Criminal Minded, RYAN HUMPHREY’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. This show is of and about New York City: what makes it simultaneously so alluring and so difficult; what draws certain people in and repels others; the daily aggravations and the elusive dreams; what can sometimes make it a monument to money and greed. HUMPHREY approaches these dichotomies with a sense of humor and through a modified version of civil disobedience.

Brion Nuda Rosch

Brion Nuda Rosch

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present BRION NUDA ROSCH’s second solo exhibition in New York. Deconstructing or rearranging the commonplace, ROSCH’s collage and sculptural works heighten awareness, jarring the viewer out of an object or photograph’s sense of embedded context.

In his new body of collage works ROSCH combines images of scarecrows with sculptures by modern masters, large color forms disrupt empty landscapes and “meat on meat” suggests past works. In his paintings and sculptural works ROSCH creates a new series of props: a cut form, a covered bust, a painting painted many times before and rescued construction site ephemera. Continuing his practice within a guided set of rules, each work exists to challenge what has been given value and what is held sacred.

Large-scale works feature Halloran’s unusual technique of laying ink on drafting film; the human form and the passage of time is simultaneously considered, where the organic body experiences a sublimation into the realm of the inanimate.

Untitled #105 (SFDF), 2009-2011

Josh Azzarella’s Untitled #105 (SFDF), 2009-2011 continues the artist’s practice of appropriation by isolating three pivotal moments from 1933’s groundbreaking movie King Kong. The work is comprised of three seamlessly looped HD video channels, each with 5.1 surround sound that combine to create a 15.3 surround sound experience. Azzarella suspends the iconic scenes, merging them with newly captured footage to create a naturalistic environment. In this fusion, tropical pools ripple and vines sway in anticipation of the thunderous entry of the protagonist, but instead the viewer is held transfixed in a moment. Untitled #105 (SFDF) displaces our experience of filmic events and challenges our grasp of legendary eminence.

The New Art Dealers Alliance and Basilica Hudson are pleased to announce NADA Hudson, a large scale exhibition featuring 51 projects presented by NADA members and affiliates. NADA Hudson is not an art fair, but rather a site-specific project for the New Art Dealers Alliance, which will build upon the character of a historic venue in showcasing contemporary sculpture, installation and performance. The Basilica Hudson, built in 1884 as a foundry and forge for the manufacture of steel railway wheels, is the last great 19th century building on the Hudson waterfront. NADA is grateful for the team at Basilica Hudson who offer a home for the artistic and cultural community at large. NADA Hudson will occupy nearly 8,000 square feet of indoor space, a theatre space and well over 10,000 square feet of outdoor space.

Timothy Tompkins

DCKT Contemporary presents recent paintings by TIMOTHY TOMPKINS. The exhibition includes works from both his Reenactment series and Explosion series. The inspirations for TOMPKINS’s paintings stem from his engagement with the tropes and language of the medium’s history. TOMPKINS begins his process of digitally altering photographic imagery by breaking the images down to core colors and by effect blurring the contours. He then uses high-gloss commercial enamel to execute the paintings on aluminum panels.

VELLIQUETTE’s new paper sculptures and drawings expand his engagement with ornamental abstraction. His bold new forms evolve from a self-described “rite” of meditation, reflection and drawing and show a heightened prowess with the process of cutting, layering and gluing his colored paper shapes.

This exhibition of photography, collage and sculpture lends itself to a myriad of mythologies, superstitions and sub-cultures. The exhibition opening coincides with MORAZAN’s Coyote Procession, Friday, January 7 at 6pm. MORAZAN, accompanied by a Mexican Norteño band (subway Mariachis), will lead a celebratory procession from the old DCKT Contemporary location (195 Bowery) to the new DCKT Contemporary location (237 Eldridge Street).

Performances

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present a series of performances by IRVIN MORAZAN. MORAZAN creates characters that perform absurd sacrifices while wearing fantastical sculptural headdresses. He intertwines pre-Columbian mythologies with gluttonous rituals and ceremonies involving food. MORAZAN merges ancient tribal traditions with urban street aesthetics to invent personas that blur the boundaries of culture and stereotypes. The value of history and theory and their relation to contemporary art is central to his process.

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present CORDY RYMAN’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. RYMAN manipulates and reconstitutes an inherited visual language, defining himself in relation to it. His intuitive and spontaneous process is propelled and determined primarily by the characteristics of his media. Manipulating materials such as wood, metal, velcro, Gorilla Glue, staples and scraps from his studio floor, RYMAN’s assemblages are physical and humorous.

Early American

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present Early American, RYAN HUMPHREY’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. HUMPHREY explores duality through an altered, customized version of an 18th century American interior. The installation hijacks the format of a formal and affluent interior, infusing it with cast-offs and objects more likely found in a rural garage than an antique shop. Class and taste are called into question and the hierarchy of materials associated with social stratification is discarded.

Absent their most significant events, AZZARELLA’s images raise questions about how our society constructs a narrative of our collective history.

Reclamation of the Modern Tongue

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present TED O’SULLIVAN’s first solo exhibition in New York. O’SULLIVAN’s painting process salvages, expands and reinvents the coded icons and systems of modernity. Oil, crushed charcoal, marble dust & paper-mâché on canvas create an impastoed lexicon that subverts the rational philosophy or formal reductivism of the modern to create new verbal and pictorial prophecies.

VELLIQUETTE hand cuts and glues paper cardstock into complex dimensional assemblages reminiscent of the interiors of large-scale pop-up books or mosaics in high relief. In his current body of work Velliquette returns once again to garden and jungle settings where humorous and visually dense paper tableaux are populated with animistic spirits, beasts, goons and gods.

Tinged with humor, RYMAN’s works often contain reflected colors as well as real and painted shadows. The works play with illusion versus reality and attachment versus detachment. RYMAN manipulates and reconstitutes an inherited visual language, defining himself in relation to it.

Timothy Tompkins

DCKT Contemporary presents new paintings by TIMOTHY TOMPKINS. The exhibition includes works from his ongoing Media series and debuts paintings from his new Nebula series.

The inspirations for TOMPKINS’s paintings stem from his engagement with the tropes and language of the medium’s history. TOMPKINS begins his process of digitally altering found photographs by breaking the images down to core colors and by effect blurring the contours. He then uses high-gloss commercial enamel to execute the paintings on aluminum panels. The paintings, when viewed from a distance, reflect both physically and metaphorically a relational narrative which, upon closer inspection, dissolves into form and color. The artist communicates a sense of removal from the present and a conceptual representation of social, cultural, and personal "memory.”

Through the manipulation of historical imagery, JOSH AZZARELLA creates stills and videos which radically alter the contexts and meanings of images ingrained in the public conscience.

100 New York Mysteries

For his first exhibition at DCKT Contemporary, Aaron Krach stakes a claim to a piece of the rich and varied history of artists inspired by New York City. “My new work fits somewhere between late, jazzy Piet Mondrian and early, East Village Madonna,” says Krach. “It’s a genuine but perhaps futile attempt to capture the beauty of Manhattan streets and the sex appeal of pure, unadulterated pop culture.”

With her signature medium of stitched needlepoint images, PIÑERES confronts media-saturated contemporary culture’s favorite guilty-or-not-guilty pleasure: the celebrity mug shot.

Manifest Destiny

Manifest Destiny takes its title from a rhetorical document written in 1839 by John L. O’Sullivan which advocated the belief that it is America’s God-given right to expand outwards and dominate the continent in the name of economic and political security. On a global level, TOMPKINS’ paintings exist within the framework of the current political climate manifesting itself today where certain disturbing parallels and connections could be made between the Jackson Administration and the Bush Administration.

Landscape Modification

William SWANSON’s work attempts to visualize the workings of modern, post-industrial landscapes by hovering the line between landscape and abstraction, between the real and the synthetic. Using a palette that is both soothing and insolent, SWANSON’s paints recognizable forms combined with abstract marking. The results are illusory images that suggest the familiar as well as the fantastic.

Timothy Tompkins

Timothy Tompkins

DCKT Contemporary is pleased to present the debut solo exhibition of TIMOTHY TOMPKINS. The paintings explore consumerism in contemporary society and allude to previous art historical themes and practices. TOMPKINS begins by digitally altering his own photographs, breaking the images down to between 12 and 15 core colors and blurring the contours. TOMPKINS then uses high-gloss commercial enamel sign paint on aluminum panels to execute his paintings. The quick-drying nature of the paint, manufactured by 1 Shot, enhances its expressive liquidity and materiality. Often, the contours of the underdrawing and small areas of the aluminum support are still visible, as if the image is still forming.
