This autumn Brian Kennedy presents a new series of curated exhibitions under the title REAR WINDOW in partnership with, Taste Contemporary – Geneva, Oliver Sears Gallery – Dublin and Ting-Ying – Hong Kong.
At a time when international art fairs, biennales and exhibitions continue to grow in scale, it seems timely to re-ignite our desire to connect with art in a more intimate way, to view work in a space that relates to our domestic environment, to prompt starting points for collections.
Thematically connected and presented in a space that eliminates disciplinary hierarchies, curator Brian Kennedy now brings us REAR WINDOW; a series of four thoughtfully curated exhibitions that explore different attitudes to contemporary creativity. Over eight weeks from October to December 2019, REAR WINDOW presents separate, but linked shows that address concerns within contemporary art, craft and design.
Beau-laid introduces the notion of beauty within work that might, on the surface, be perceived as ugly; Parallax invites us to consider artists’ varying viewpoints; Florid presents us with old fashioned extravagances within contemporary art while Repeat investigates meanings around repetition within abstraction.
Through sensitive curation, REAR WINDOW invites both existing and new collectors to view art in a culturally relevant and exciting, yet intimate space that offers a fresh insight into a world made more interesting by things.

D’ordinaire, une création se présente de manière décontextualisée. Elle est là, nue devant nos yeux.
Pourtant, l’oeuvre n’est rien sans son créateur pour lui donner forme. Et de la même façon, ces derniers ne sont rien sans un spectateur pour contempler.
C’est pourquoi BeCraft propose une découverte en plusieurs temps de ses artistes membres où créations et vidéoprojections s’exposent en vis-à-vis.

À travers ces portraits d’artistes se croisent différentes disciplines motivées par différentes aspirations. Se croisent aussi les regards qui nous semblent dire quelque chose.

Jason Jacques Gallery will commemorate this spring with a synthesis of the old and the new, in more ways than one. The show will feature a selection of works by our familiar and stellar roster of contemporary artists, including Eric Serritella, Morten Løbner Espersen, Osamu Kojima, Gareth Mason, Anne Marie Laureys, and Kim Simonsson. We will also be showing, for the first time, the works of Brooklyn-based and endlessly inventive artist, Shari Mendelson.
Ceramics are ubiquitous in the Art World today states Marc Del Vecchio, curator of Visceral Clay and Director at Peters Projects.
Artists in the exhibition are Anne Marie Laureys, Aneta Regal, King Houndekpinkou, The Haas Brothers, Tony Marsh and Hank Saxe.
Artists are creating unique and curious works beyond the usual thought of what ceramics can be. Materials have evolved, processes have changed and in the hands of contemporary artists, new works are born every day. This exhibition gives the viewer unexpected sensations as the eye drifts across the sculptures, catching on their surfaces, colors and shapes. The organic and amorphic qualities in all these works speak to you only on their terms, with no place to escape.

A selection of contemporary Belgian ceramics a groupshow curated by Kris Campo at Zwart Huis, Brussels, Rivoli Building #12
CRMCS#1 is an exhibition that came out of a meeting, but also because of an appetite and enthusiasm for it. When gallerist Elke Helbig of Zwart Huis met ceramicist Kris Campo there was an instant appetite and enthusiasm to celebrate and honour the ceramic arts, their expressive power, their sensuality, tactility, sense of spectacle and the visual richness of clay as an artistic vehicle.
Jason Jacques Gallery is thrilled to present new work by Anne Marie Laureys, a Belgian artist based in Russeignies, in her first solo exhibition in the United States.
Over the course of her lengthy career, Laureys’ vision of what constitutes a vessel— and wherein lies its potential— has been refined into an effervescent series of forms reminiscent of gently-gaping heart valves, clouds, sand dunes, and rippling waves fashioned of paper-thin stoneware. The undulating vessels, which Laureys has called “metaphors for feelings,” have reached their remarkably organic state of being through meticulous turns around and around the potter’s wheel, followed by sculptural warping resulting in a striking visual effect.
There is a subtle inversion the interior-exterior boundary these vessels engage in as they twist and turn on themselves. These spacious, fine forms “hide the inside while framing the outside.” Laureys’ sculptures are not only novel and technically advanced in their approach to the sculptural development of a wheel-thrown vessel, they are also visually complex and full of spaces for a wandering eye to travel through.
This life-long relationship with clay began during the artist’s studies at the Luca School of Art in Ghent, Belgium. Since then, her work has been exhibited at the Icheon Biennale in South Korea, in Taiwan (Yingge), Japan (Mino), China (Changhai), and more recently in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, France and at Florida’s Boca Raton Museum of Art for the exhibition Regarding George Ohr: Contemporary Ceramics in the Spirit of the Mad Potter (2017-18).
Look Out opens November 7th and runs through December 11th. A reception will be held on November 7th from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the gallery.
