Magic + Love x Art

Magic + Love x Art Curated by Larissa Kikol

Opening reception: Friday, February 17th at 6 PM - 9 PM

We are pleased to present the works of 10 artists in this group exhibition curated by Larissa Kikol.


The square root of “magic” plus “love” multiplied by “art squared” is an amusing equation that allows one to contemplate artworks that conjure the unknown. Traditionally magic was, in essence, a transformation — taking something less valuable and making it remarkable. The works in this group exhibition are infused with a cathartic spirit and vision of the universe that is expansive, always in motion and open to mystery. The message embedded in the tongue-in-cheek formula, that is the exhibition’s title, suggests that the artist’s role is to find inspiration in the unusual and to create enigmatic and thought provoking works. Artists are everyday shamans, their strategy and artistic process is to construct riddles out of the world.

International Print Center New York presents Commedia: New Prints 2015/Autumn from November 19 – January 16, 2016 in its gallery at 508 West 26th St, 5th Floor. Commedia was selected by Tomas Vu, artist and Artistic Director of the Leroy Neiman Center for Print Studies (NY). The exhibition consists of sixty-eight prints by sixty artists selected from over 2,000 submissions. On view during IPCNY’s 15th Anniversary year, Commedia is the fifty-second presentation of IPCNY’s New Prints Program, a series of juried exhibitions organized three times each year featuring prints made within the past twelve months. An illustrated brochure with a curatorial essay by Mr. Vu accompanies the exhibition.

In his words: “The title of the show, Commedia, is the original title of Dante’s Divine Comedy….Dante’s embrace and elevation of humble materials, and the specificity and personality they created, are reflected in the works I have selected….As the show has come together, it has been wonderful to see the works start to speak to each other….I see conversations starting in one place and finishing in another, I see the categories blur and then come back into focus, and I am taken to the same place Dante transported me to: wandering between states, striving for ascension.”

Artists are:  Todd Anderson, Kathy Aoki, Evan Bellantone, Marcin Bialas, Allison Bianco, Mary Lynn Blasutta, Sebastiaan Bremer, Noah Breuer, Patrick Casey, Nathan Catlin, Phillip Chen, Matthew Colaizzo, Nick Conbere, Aurélien Couput, David Curcio, Kara Dunne, Scott Espeseth, Megan Foster, Carl Fudge, Rebecca Gilbert, Kevin Haas, Ellen Heck, Amira Hegazy, John Holmgren, Mary Hood, Cary Hulbert, Eeva Huotari, Fleming Jeffries, Crystal Johnson, Leekyung Kang, Kamil Kocurek, Andrew Kosten, Andrew Kozlowski, Sara Langworthy, Yujin Lee, Michael Loderstedt, Kate MacNeil, Barbara Madsen, Renee Magnanti, Nicole Maloof, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, Barbara Milman, Anne Muntges, Lorella Paleni, Kurt Pammer, Margherita Paoletti, Jill Parisi, Alyssa Piro, Kasey Ramirez, Mark Rice, Jenny Robinson, Jungyeon Roh, Michelle Rozic, David Sandlin, Carrie Scanga, William Skerritt, Evan Summer, Rob Swainston, Clare Szydlowski, and Sergey Zlotnikov.
