Caroline Phillips, there's something happening here...

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. Domestic and industrial materials, most sourced from Materials for the Arts, transformed into objects of resistance and self-defense that resemble both weapons and flotation devices for survival in the current political climate.

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

Gallery hours: Tues-Sat, 12-5 by appointment only
Appointments to view the exhibition can be made by contacting Anese Projects at aneseprojects@gmail.com

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.”
