Mark Moore Gallery

Jason Salavon

Open until April 9

Mark Moore Gallery will be presenting, "All The Ways," a solo exhibition of new works by media artist Jason Salavon, his third with the gallery. In his new body of work, Salavon explores the ways in which infinite variation and permutation—supercharged by large networks—is the engine of our exploding digitized culture. Debuting 14 new works in a variety of media, the artist furthers his investigation of the vast visual capacity engendered by an ever-advancing social and technological landscape. 

 


Calvin Marcus

David Kordansky Gallery is presenting Malvin Carcus, an exhibition of new work by Calvin Marcus.

Nonetheless, his work is not concerned in any overt way with his own biography or the specifics of his life. He is interested, rather, in the artist’s persona as it takes shape through carefully directed formal decisions and conceptual structures.
