The 3D Project Room Installation is a collaboration with the artist and designer Emre Erturk, who will be doing a performance with Gulay Alpay during the opening Reception. For love and peace!

In 3D Project Room Installation Alpay creates an innovative world within a world. Each of these “worlds” are in the creating with a variety of mediums by Alpay and the several other collaborating artists and non-artist friends and guests during the show. Turkish artist Gulay Alpay has developed a reputation for poetic epic works that display both delicacy and fragility, revealing a deep respect for something fundamental, some primal, indigenous sense of shape and color, yet she creates with bursts of contemporary idioms. Her paintings are playful, spirited, freeform and deceptively complex. There’s not a single corner, hard edged, geometric line to be found in her composition, instead the shapes are as fluid as the submerged sounds that fuel her imagination.

Gulay Alpay began the invoative piece in Istanbul, and will continue the piece and the creative process in the gallery space here in NY. Utilizing every inch of the project room space; her artistic vision will not be hampered by the gallery walls limits. This is a method Alpay’s come to be known for during her many years of artistic discourse. Leaving an open space only through which to accept the visitors, the artist will also welcome visitors to interact and participate in her world and work of art.

Alpay will re-create and bring her studio into project room of the gallery and create an “Open Studio Tour” where the artist and visitor can both exist inside the picture and therefore exist within the artist’s state of creation. Alpay includes hundreds of submissions by means of her social and technological networks, by artists and non-artist’s alike. All these submitted doodles will appear in Alpay’s installation creating a multi-colored foundation for further creation within the gallery space.

This world made of silk, ink, and acrylic paint will then offer many surprises including painting, being embraced with clothing of silk painting that will have its last strokes of paint spontaneously added by the artist or by selecting the measurements of a silk scarf that will be completed right there and then as a collaboration by the artist and the visitor. An other special art work on silk which Gulay Alpay began in Istanbul, will be continued by artist and designer Emre Erturk here in New York. Both artists will be selling the piece to help fundraise money for www.strength.org. Anti-hunger organization that mobilizes industries and individuals to contribute their talents to fight hunger. Alpay is looking forward to the exchange, combination, and fusion over her ever so volatile and brilliantly colorful energy with each and every person visiting her studio at project room, playfully, spontaneously—all for the sake of peace and beauty.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
