ARTWALK NY
 brings together hundreds of artists, art-lovers and other compassionate New Yorkers at this landmark event to celebrate the role of “artist-as-activist” and raise awareness about the issues of homelessness, poverty and social justice.

The Coalition for the Homeless provides emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and special programs for kids to over 3,500 New Yorkers each day. For more than three decades, we’ve been helping homeless men, women and children find their way to a safe, stable home.

Marina Adams and Stanley Whitney, Artist Honorees

Marina Adams and Stanley Whitney

Marina Adams fluently pushes color into form, creating undulating, interlocking shapes that reveal a powerful internal rhythm beneath their surface simplicity. Adams’ vibrant compositions use saturated shades and sensual shapes to pack a graphic punch. While purely abstract, her works’ organic, free-flowing patterns are redolent of landscapes or bodies. It’s no surprise that Adams, a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, counts among her influences late Willem de Kooning and Joan Mitchell.

Unlike many contemporary artists, who deliberately blur the line between figurative and abstract, Adams’ current work is unabashedly abstract, allowing the artist to revel in playing with sheer color, form and pattern. In that sense, her work bears a Matisse-like connection to the intricate patterns of textiles. There is a resonance with the designs of Moroccan rugs and Moorish mosaics, such as the magnificent tessellated walls in the Alhambra palace, in Granada, Spain, which sparked a personal epiphany: “It all comes down to creating not the thought, but the space for thought. It is this that is ultimately the most timeless, the most useful, the most necessary and the most radical….possibly the most dangerous.” Or, in the term Adams has borrowed for her debut exhibition at Salon 94 Bowery, Soft Power.

Adams was born in Orange, NJ in 1960. She lives in Manhattan, and maintains studios in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Parma, Italy. Past solo exhibitions of her work include shows at Galerie Gris, Hudson, NY (2013 and 2015); Marina Adams: Coming Thru Strange at Hionas gallery, NY (2013), The Nature of Line, at Magazzino d’arte Moderna, Rome, Italy (1997), and recently in Making & Unmaking: An exhibition curated by Duro Olowu at the Camden Arts Centre, London, UK (2016). Publications include collaborations with poets Norma Cole, Actualities, (Litmus Press, 2015) and Vincent Katz, Taormina, (Kayrock, 2012).

Stanley Whitney has been exploring the possibilities of color since the mid-1970s. His recent paintings take the form of saturated fields of color that are delineated in three to five horizontal bands and fill a square canvas. Whitney’s multicolored works exhibit a masterful pictorial balance with an underlying tension; conflict and resolution between colors and forms simmer within each painting. Taking his cues from early Minimalism, Color Field painters, jazz music and his favorite historical artists – Titian, Velázquez, and Cézanne among them – Whitney is as much an exponent of the process-based, spatially-gridded square in art as Josef Albers, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, Alma Thomas, and Carl Andre.

Stanley Whitney was born in Philadelphia in 1946 and lives and works in New York City and Parma, Italy. He holds a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute as well as an MFA from Yale University and is currently Professor emeritus of painting and drawing at Tyler School of Art. Select solo exhibitions include ‘Focus – Stanley Whitney’ at the Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth, TX, USA (2016) and ‘Dance the Orange’ at the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY, USA (2015). Whitney has also been included in many prominent group shows, such as ‘Inherent Structure’, Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH, USA (2018); Documenta 14 in Athens, Greece and Kassel, Germany (2017); ‘Nero su Bianco’ at the American Academy in Rome, Italy (2015); ‘Outside the Lines: Black in the Abstract’, Contemporary Art Museum of Houston, TX, USA (2014); ‘Reinventing Abstraction: New York Painting in the 1980s’, Cheim & Read, New York, NY, USA (2013); and ‘Utopia Station’ at the 50th Venice Biennale (2003). He has received numerous honors including the Robert De Niro Sr. Prize in Painting (2011), a Guggenheim Fellowship (1996), and was elected as a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2017). Whitney’s work is included in public collections around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Gallery of Canada, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
