1-54 is excited to present Knotted Ties, a curated selection of works by women artists who use textiles in their practice. Knotted Ties contemplates the pluralism of the medium as well as narratives portrayed and expressed through fabric and thread. The exhibited works illustrate both the power and strength of textile work and its capacity to convey humanity’s entangled histories, challenging social landscapes, and complex realities. These works instigate debate while also offering the idea of mediative resolve through resilience, reminding us of the importance of community nurturing and constructive dialogue as we create futures through uncertain times.

The exhibition will feature work by Ambrose, Igi Lola Ayedun, Joana Choumali, Lidia Lisbôa, Kimathi Mafafo, Turiya Magadlela, Dindga McCannon, Shervone Neckles, Josie Love Roebuck, and Tina Williams Brewer.

Knotted Ties is free to visit and is open to the public 15 – 26 May 2021 at Christie’s Rockefeller Plaza, New York. All works exhibited can be viewed and acquired on 1-54 Online, powered by Christie’s. Book to visit the exhibition here

DOWNLOAD THE PRESS RELEASE

M+B is pleased to present Between Rivers, Waterfalls and the Deepest Sea. Open Roads., a three-person exhibition curated by Igi Ayedun with work by Marlon Amaro, Laís Amaral and Kelton Campos Fausto.  The exhibition runs from April 24 - May 29, 2021, with an opening reception on Saturday, April 24 from noon to 6pm. Exhibiting for the first time in the United States, this three-person presentation explores Afro-Brazilian narratives and the complexities of the contemporary Black youth experience in the largest country in Latin America. More than the collective and systemic specificities that are part of their Black identity, the artistic processes behind the works revolve around impressions of individual experiences on social, cultural, intellectual, spiritual and emotional aspects, stitching together the desires of young, black Brazilians today.




  • MARLON AMARO, Caronte, 2021, signed, titled and dated versooil, spray and glitter on canvas, 57 x 56 inches (144.8 x 142.2 cm)


ACT 1. THE EQUALITY MYTH (O mito da igualdade), Marlon Amaro

Influenced by urban aesthetics, Marlon Amaro's scenes combine day glow hues with narratives of unsettling racial undertones. His compositions are based on meticulous research of familial photographic archives and personal experiences of racism. Using a mix of techniques including acrylic, spray paint, collage and adhesives, as well as a more traditional painting approach, his depictions often capture private scenes of post-colonial interracial relations, and all of its attendant absurdities.

ABOUT MARLON AMARO

Marlon Amaro (b. 1987, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) graduated from the School of Fine Arts and School of Visual Arts, Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro. Amaro's work excavates personal experiences and photo archives, and social standards that perpetuate structural racism. In 2020, Amaro participated in the thematic exhibition, Casa Carioca at the Rio de Janeiro Museum of Art. He also had a solo exhibition, Sísifo, in partnership with HOA Galeria and CC Espaço, Sao Paolo.



  • KELTON CAMPOS FAUSTO, Fun Fun, 2021, mixed media on canvas, 64 x 62 inches (162.6 x 157.5 cm)



ACT 2. THE STRAW PEOPLE (O povo da palha), Kelton Campos Fausto

Kelton Campos Fausto travels across different dimensions between his ancestry and the dream of the future through the Yorubá teachings inherited by the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé, which reveals the divine worldview as a way of preserving Black essentialism. Fausto's research seeks to connect us with the ritualistic intimacy promulgated by surrendering to the sensibility of the body in different stages of performance. In The Straw People, the artist materializes ritual in image, representing not only the tangibility of the body-guide or Orishas, but also the movements and energies of the Black spiritual existence. With clay on an acrylic base, the earth colors are applied as a document of the origin of humanity, according to Yorubá mythology, and the transmutation of freedom takes on shapes, faces and a sense of strength from the omnipresence of his ancestors.

ABOUT KELTON CAMPOS FAUSTO

Kelton Campos Fausto (b.1996, São Paulo, Brazil) is a non-binary, multidisciplinary artist, resident and founder of Brasilândia, a multidisciplinary platform for the Black and LGBTQIA+ communities of São Paulo. Fausto is interested in the plastic construction of spiritual scenes and cosmological activities that propose living spaces and health possibilities based on other ways of apprehending reality and the body. In 2018, they joined the Ephemeral Art School and Collective AEAN, founded by Igi Ayedun and Lucas Andrade. Fausto explores The Straw People series through painting and performance, with work recently included in the exhibition Curação, curated by Paula Garcia at the São Paulo Cultural Center.





  • LAÍS AMARAL, WET HEAD (UNTITLED), 2021, signed and dated verso, acrylic and oil pastel on canvas,73 x 59 1/2 inches (185.4 x 151.1 cm)



ACT. 3 WET HEAD (Cabeça Molhada), Laís Amaral

In Wet Head, Laís Amaral proposes an attentive look at the abstractions of consciousness. For Amaral, water is a device of freedom that lies in opposition to this aridity of urban life in Rio de Janeiro. This series of paintings is formed from overlaying paint-at times revealing, superimposing or unveiling other possibilities of rhythmic languages through the visible. Artist and craftswoman, Amaral brings the addition of beads to acrylics and oil sticks, creating textures that become enmeshed with the countless lines, marks and scratches that make up the surfaces of her works. The Wet Head series finds pleasure in disobeying and contradicting the expectations of abstraction-through its modularization and brief repetitions, the compositions are a celebration of the trance between resistance and existence.

ABOUT LAÍS AMARAL

Laís Amaral (b.1993, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is an artisan-artist who graduated with a degree in Social Work at the Universidade Federal Fluminense, where she began her research on the effects of environmental collapse on contemporary society in relation to the desertification process, as well as the eugenics project on the Brazilian population. Amaral calls her gestures in painting, "leaking," referencing the movements of nature and attempts to irrigate the ways of existing. She is also the co-founder of Trovoa, a POC women's national collective in Brazil.

REPERTÓRIO N.1 with Davi Pontes and Wallace Ferreira

 
The work invests in the idea of dance as a self-defense training, using mimesis and ritualized repetition of gestures to produce a study of choreographed images by dissident bodies, in an attempt to collect actions to elaborate resistances and conjure ways of staying in the world to invent what's comes next. REPERTÓRIO N.1 names our constant challenge of positioning the choreography to respond to its own onto-epistemological conditions, to serve politically in the face of the situations in which it is being practiced (police violence, destruction of nature, endless colonial violence).


REPERTÓRIO N.1 with Davi Pontes and Wallace Ferreira
O trabalho investe na ideia de dança como treino de autodefesa, utilizando a mimese e a repetição ritualizada de gestos para produzir um estudo sobre imagens coreografadas por corpos dissidentes, em uma tentativa de arquivar ações para elaborar resistências, conjurar modos de permanecer no mundo e inventar o que há de sucedê-lo. Repertório N.1nomeia nosso constante desafio de posicionar a coreografia para responder às suas próprias condições ontoepistemológicas —, atender politicamente diante das condições em que está sendo praticada (violência policial, destruição da natureza, violência colonial sem fim).


ABOUT DAVI PONTES AND WALLACE FERREIRA


Davi Pontes (b.1990) lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Davi is an artist, researcher and choreographer graduated in Arts from the Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF), and student in the Postgraduate Program in Arts (Contemporary Studies of the Arts) of the same institution.  He studied at ESMAE Superior School of Music and Arts (Porto, Portugal) and Parque Lage School of Visual Arts (EAV, Rio de Janeiro).  Among his most recent works, we highlight the trilogy “Repertório” in partnership with the dancer Wallace Ferreira who was at the VERBO Exhibition at Galeria Vermelho, Valongo International Image Festival in São Paulo, Segunda Preta, Belo Horizonte, Anita schwartz art gallery , Rio de Janeiro and scheduled for the Forum of Live Art Amsterdam 2021, Netherlands. The artist has dedicated his practice to positioning the choreography to respond to his own ontoepistemological conditions.

Wallace Ferreira (b.1993) graduated in Dance at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). Wallace builds strategies to escape from the meanings, his creations move between dance, theater, performance, the desire for provocation, for the destabilization of bodies, to ruin the codes of representation. Among his most recent works, we highlight the trilogy “Repertório” in partnership with the artist Davi Pontes who was at the VERBO Exhibition of the Vermelho gallery, Valongo International Image Festival in São Paulo, Segunda Preta in Belo Horizonte, ArtRio, Anita schwartz gallery of art, Rio de Janeiro and scheduled for the Forum of Live Art Amsterdam 2021, Netherlands. Driven by the challenges of tensioning the present and conjuring futures.

WHAT IF..? with Jota Mombaça, Kenia Freitas, Diego Paulino and Anti Ribeiro
Where do the possibilities that history discards go? How to access the dreams, images, voices and forces that make up the map of what could have been? In this conversation, Jota Mombaça invites Kenia Freitas, Diego Paulino and Anti Ribeiro to talk about the radical potential of the question 'What if…?', Opening space for considerations about the relationship between memory and fable, and about the politically regulated dimension of what we understand as a possibility.


E se…? Memória, Fabulação e Possibilidade com Jota Mombaça, Kênia Freitas, Diego Paulino e Anti Ribeiro
Para onde vão as possibilidades que a História descarta? Como acessar os sonhos, imagens, vozes e forças que compõem o mapa do que poderia ter sido? Nesta conversa, convido Kênia Freitas, Diego Paulino e Anti Ribeiro a conversar sobre o potencial radical da pergunta ‘E se…?’, abrindo espaço para considerações sobre a relação entre memória e fabulação, e sobre a dimensão politicamente regulada do que compreendemos como possibilidade.
