Anese Projects, 540 W 50th St 1A
October 2 - October 20
Opening Reception October 2, 6-8 pm



NARS, in collaboration with Anese Projects, is pleased to announce there's something happening here..., a solo exhibition by Australian artist Caroline Phillips, featuring research and work developed as a 2017 Summer Artist-In-Residence.

Caroline Phillips´ practice harnesses the tension between soft materials and their repetitive industrial manufacture. In her first solo New York show, this new body of work seeks to respond to the current political climate. Stirrings of protest, retaliation, and self-defense emerge through whimsical and embodied forms.

there is something happening here.... explores abstraction as a positive feminist strategy.

Spotlight: Jackie Feng, Known Unknown Unknown
October 13 - November 10

NARS is pleased to present Known Unknown Unknown, the next show in our Spotlight series by NARS artist-in-residence Jackie Feng.

The figures and grounds in Jackie Feng’s recent oil paintings exist in a constant flux between ambiguity and the recognizable. Layers upon layers of vibrant hazes of color simultaneously obscure and clarify spatial relationships occurring within the picture plane, and in some instances venture beyond it. The slow process of looking at her open-ended, suggestive works allows the viewer to mine a visual vocabulary that is consciously known but to also accept that sometimes what is being experienced by the eye can only resonates more with the subconscious.

Elements of art history, feminism, mythology and nature as the sublime weave in and out of the works. There is an earnest and at times bemused desire to investigate the primal origins of human existence. Spotlight is a series of solo exhibitions by artists who are a part of the NARS community, started in June 2017 in our new second floor exhibition space.

NARS Spotlight is proud to present Yi Xin Tong's solo exhibition "NYC Fishing Trip," opening August 4th and up through September 15, 2017.

Yi Xin Tong is a New York-based artist and amateur fisherman who enthusiastically steals his own studio time for fishing, which brings him to the remote peripheries of the city where ruins replace buildings and nature’s reclamation is surprisingly ubiquitous. Besides the new perspectives gained on the social geography of New York, fresh bluefish and striped bass occasionally appear on his dinner table. On the edge of the ocean as well as on YouTube, Tong’s endeavor is for the most part anti-productive; however, the salutations from his peer fishing channel hosts linger in his ears, “Tight lines. See you next time.”
