Deadline: October 31, 2008 (Postmark or Online)

We exhort artists to propose their visions, perspectives, and voices on the subject of happiness and how individuals experience it when confronted with an irreversible condition. Awareness and joy could serve to fight HIV/AIDS because knowledge safeguards and happiness prevails over any ailment by strengthening people’s minds and spirits. This year’s exhibition focuses on presenting merriment as a unique experience, and asks artists to reflect on it and on the experiences that make them feel elated. Applicants should present artwork in relation to this subject, and in connection to important aspects of one’s life that can be affected by HIV/AIDS, but overcome by happiness or contentment.

As part of World AIDS Awareness, QMAD, Queens Media Arts Development, has produced FRAMING AIDS since 2005.  The program is intended to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS affecting the communities of Queens, and NYC at large.

Black Mirror / Espejo Negro: Three Projects by Pedro Lasch
Mexicanos Unidos: Arte por el artista mexicano Pedro Lasch
Exhibition at
Luxe Gallery
53 Stanton Street
New York, NY 10002

Oct 12 – Nov 9, 2008

Opening Reception:
Sunday Oct 12, 2008 from 4-6pm

Closing Reception:

Saturday Nov 8, 2008 from 6-8pm

Luxe gallery is proud to present Black Mirror/Espejo Negro, a solo exhibition featuring the works of artist Pedro Lasch. Black Mirror/Espejo Negro is the culmination of three ambitious projects produced over the past year.

The first project consists of a new site-specific installation created by Lasch for Luxe Gallery’s storefront windows. Facing Stanton Street, black mirrors with almost invisible images will confront passersby on an everyday basis, even as the gallery is closed. Gallery viewers and pedestrians will see their faces reflected in ghostly figures and imaginary buildings gradually appearing from under the glass. Reflections of the interior and exterior architecture of the actual surroundings will also become part of these fleeting pictures. Post-colonial theory and aesthetics, ongoing immigration debates, and current ideas around latinidad will frame this public visual dialogue in the intensely cosmopolitan context of New York City and the specific tensions between Loisaida and the Lower East Side.

In addition to the site-specific installation, the show at Luxe will include selections from five archival suites of large-scale photographs produced by Lasch in relation to his grand, yet ephemeral installation currently on view at the Nasher Museum of Art in Durham in North Carolina (May 22, 2008 through Jan. 18, 2009). Commissioned by the museum to accompany its blockbuster exhibitions El Greco to Velazquez (Fall 2008) and Escultura Social: Contemporary Art from Mexico City (Spring 2009) this work incorporates sixteen pre-Columbian figures from the museum’s permanent collection, placing them in front of black reflective panels through which images of Spanish old master paintings are just visible. Museum visitors also see their own faces reflected on the same glass panels. The photographs shown at Luxe capture different processes and experiences at play in the Nasher installation. They also provide the foundation for the third and last project for Black Mirror/Espejo Negro, an artist’s book to be launched in Spring 2009. Co-produced by Luxe Gallery and the Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University, the book includes high quality images, writings by the artist, as well as critical essays by art critics and social theorists.

Pedro Lasch was born and raised in Mexico City, and has since lived in New York (NY) and Durham, (NC), where he teaches art and art theory at the Department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University. He has been Director of Latino/a Studies at Duke, and is now their Community Liaison. He is also the founder and former director of the bilingual experimental program ‘Art, Story-Telling, and the Five Senses’ in New York. Lasch collaborates frequently with immigrant organizations and art collectives, especially 16 Beaver Group.

In 2006 the Queens Museum of Art presented an eight-year span of Lasch’s projects in his solo exhibition ‘Open Routines.’ His works have been shown internationally at both alternative and mainstream institutions including Luxe Gallery, Sean Kelly Gallery, The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Walker Art Center, MASS MoCA, The Nasher Museum of Art (U.S.A), Baltic: The Centre for Contemporary Art and The Royal College of Art (England), ACC Gallery & Stiftung Federkiel (Germany), The Contemporary Art Center (Lithuania), Casa Lamm, Centro Arte Alameda, Centro Nacional de las Artes (Mexico), The Singapore Art Museum (Singapore), and The Gwangju Biennial (South Korea). Appearing in numerous exhibition catalogues and edited collections, his art and writings have also been published and reviewed in October, Saber Ver, Art Forum, ARTnews, Cultural Studies, and Rethinking Marxism, as well as The New York York Times, The Philadelphia Weekly, El Diario de México, El Universal, and La Jornada. He has received awards from the Joan Mitchell Foundation (2007 Sculptors and Painters Award), the Dedalus Foundation, The Lily Auchincloss Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, The Jerome Foundation, and Asociación Tepeyac de New York.
