Sarah Cain "Dark Matter" @ Galerie Lelong
Advancing her constant search into new territories of abstraction and the possibilities of painting, Sarah Cain will transform Galerie Lelong with her first monumental floor painting that will cover and activate the entire 2,500 square foot exhibition space. By inviting viewers to step on top of the site-specific work, Cain further explores the boundaries between painting, sculpture, and installation. A dozen new paintings that recontextualize the conventional limits of the medium will also be on view.September 20, 2016
TOM SACHS "SPACE PROGRAM: EUROPA" @ YBCA
"I'm a sculpture artist, and I want you to look at these works like they are sculptures," Tom Sachs reminds us throughout his walkthrough of his newest exhibition, Space Program: Europa, opening this weekend at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. And yes, he is a sculpture artist, but he is also quite industrious and one of the most highly detailed-oriented artist you will ever see. These works may not get you to space, but they might? That is the feeling you get throughout this exhibition, and the artist reminds us: this work continues to be created in the spirit of the great American can-do spirit, where unimaginable heights were reached by the mere intensity of willing it to happen, ie, putting men into space and the eventual moon landing. But it is also made in the idea that why can't an artist be the one to make a spacecraft? Why can't Tom Sachs build sculptures that fly into space? And by the end of his talk today, we were all convinced that maybe we should believe it, too.September 16, 2016

Juan Francisco Casas "(HE)ARTBROKEN"
Juan Francisco Casas recreates photographs he’s taken as large scale, hyperreal ballpoint pen drawings. While compositions of this size have traditionally been used in art to commemorate royalty and historical events, Casas utilizes the medium to memorialize his personal and provocative exploits. Described as “art for the selfie generation,” his seductive portraits transform viewers into voyeurs, intrigued by what happened prior and after the snapshot was taken.August 31, 2016
