Curator’s statement:

‘What is to come? What tools do we have as people, as artists? What is a thumb stuck in a cog worth? or pleasantries flung towards a dumpster fire? What is health? What is a home? What is community? What responsibility do we have to the future, what kind of future? What roles do we play, inadvertently or not, to validate/invalidate a society of consumer individualism that is running toward a cliff, and what can we do to truly subvert the appropriation of any attempt we make to buck this system, while living in a more and more self-facing western world?

There is a magic that lives in creating a place for people to feel held, grow, lighten, laugh, darken and mourn collectively. A magic that can create new forms of expression, yet to be definable, save for the thumping of hearts and the contact made between exuberant eyes. How do we use our work to heal, to hold, to inform, to demand, to stop the destruction of the sacred? How can we take a holistic approach to the exchange between disparate forms of art and experience; philosophically and aesthetically to at the very least create a 4-dimensional accounting of our time, that can work together to irrevocably set in stone that the power of art and care resides in LOVE and NOT capital!!!!?

After The Fall Comes Love; or The Shadow Society is set against the backdrop of a deceptively static state: a world run by seemingly elected, yet unaccountable and stateless hegemonic death cult members, as far as open eyes and ears can conclude. This multidisciplinary group exhibition brings together artists from different oeuvres to create a tactile, didactically truthful space of love and reflection. The works, collectively and in community, conspire to spin a chrysalis of safe harbor: for our stories, emotions, ephemeral mind fucks, transitory wavelengths, siren-scratching eye flares; for weary hearts and tired hands to be bolstered by…’

—HH


Haley Hughes (b. Paradise , California, 1984, “Self-taught”). Hughes’ paintings act as a psycho-historical archive as well as a call to action. The center of her philosophy and the aesthetic of her work is to address the crisis we face with immediacy, by assessing the state of our shared humanity by subjecting racial /social/economic and environmental injustice to humanist investigation. Producing an alternative story to the dominant historiographies of empire by holding politicians and corporations accountable, they tell the stories of the hard work of activists and leaders and everyday people rising up against all forms of oppression; in vast intertwining narrative landscapes and on a smaller scale in portraiture or tragic/ comical vignettes; resulting in a visual archive that chronicles the events of our time. Evolving through journalistic investigation into the intersectionality of current events and their resonating psychological, philosophical and sociological implications, to create contemporary allegories that show us the past, present and potential futures at once with the intention of creating space for collective contemplation, resistance, reconciliation and transformation. Hughes’ work has been reviewed in ArtForum and most recently mounted her solo exhibition “This is Your Country” at Spring/Break Art Show. She has exhibited at PS122, S/B/A L.A., Scope Art Show Miami Beach/ Assembly Room, New York, NY/ Bushel Collective, Delhi, NY/ Le Petit Versailles, New York, NY/ Every Woman Biennial, La MaMa Gallery, New York, NY/ Rhode Island Arts League, Providence, RI/ MOMA PS1 BookFair,Queens, NY/ Haverford College, Haverford, PA/ Watermill Center, Watermill, NY/ Columbia College, Columbia, MO/ Field Projects, NY, NY/ Elizabeth Art Foundation Project Space, New York, NY/ Gowanus Studio Space and the Sunview Luncheonette. published in The Nation Magazine, W Mag, title mag, Wallpaper and Huffington Post. Special Commissions, acquisitions and residencies include the Debt Collective, Public Bank, The Allen Art Museum, Watermills Center. I-Park and OverPass Projects Print Residency.

Drawing Experiments and Workshops


Mercedes Teixido
Pareesa Pourian
Helen Quinn


< back

Bushel is thrilled to be hosting its first Alumni-curated show—exhibitions and happenings proposed by artists who have exhibited at Bushel in the past, with a single constraint: to use the opportunity to invite or engage at least one other artist or maker who has not yet been part of a Bushel program. This inaugural installment is from Mercedes Teixido, whose solo exhibition Scroll Left Scroll Right was held at Bushel’s old space at 84 Main Street in August 2016.

For DRAWARAMA, Teixido turns the Bushel space into a collaborative studio where members of the community can join in the creation of art that is drawing-based. She has invited artists Pareesa Pourian and Helen Quinn to join her by teaching one workshop each. All are welcome! No experience necessary.

Drawing is broadly defined and all workshops will include warmup exercises that introduce materials, movement, and vocabulary. Over the course of the month-long exhibit, results from the workshops will be added to the walls, forming a collaborative installation reflecting the time spent in collective drawing.

‘Teaching drawing, I am continually struck by how engaging and challenging and thrilling the experience is for participants. Drawing is an art form that bridges the worlds of the utilitarian and the conceptual, the beautiful, the representational and the enigmatic. I love inviting members of the community to enter a creative space that is so often sharply divided between makers and their audience. Teaching has long been part of my artist practice.’ —Mercedes Teixido

Bushel is pleased to present a group exhibition featuring nine of the artists who lead Black Ball Projects (BBP), a nonprofit that supports underexposed artists. Also on view will be photos, clippings, and other ephemera tracing the activities of BBP over seven years in its support of more than 150 artists. 

“Run by artists for artists, from the start it was always a labor of love,” states BBP co-founder Ana Wolovick. Black Ball Projects is a NYC nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that supports artists through exhibitions, online viewing rooms, and a micro-granting program. BBP’s mission is to serve and support contemporary artists who are underexposed and who have been working diligently on the periphery of the greater art world. Diversity of all kinds, be it gender, racial, or economic, is at the core of the Black Ball Projects organization. https://www.blackballprojects.com

As a nonprofit, artist-run space, Bushel is thrilled to host this exhibition, a cross-pollination between two groups that share a collective ethos. This exhibition is the second in a new series of Bushel-alumni-curated shows, proposed by Pia Dehne whose work was shown in “Beaver Fever,” a three-person show curated by Jennifer Kabat for Bushel’s old space at 84 Main Street in Fall 2017. Bushel-alumni-curated shows are exhibitions and happenings proposed by artists who have exhibited at Bushel in the past, with a single constraint: to use the opportunity to invite or engage at least one other artist or maker who has not yet been part of a Bushel program.

Palma Blank is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Juxtaposing concepts of deep space and flatness, illusion and objecthood, minimalism and maximalism, the handmade and machined, her paintings emerge as charged futuristic spaces for experience and reflection.

Kelly Chang is a New York–based multidisciplinary artist whose work combines the use of digital tools and methods with ceramics and other traditional media to explore themes of personal memory, humanity’s legacy, and the future of life in the universe.

Pia Dehne is a German-born painter living in New York for the past 22 years and in Andes, NY since 2011. Her interests as a painter lie in re-using and transforming images and pre-existing materials from a particular time, ideological moment or movement, into new abstracted and evocative forms.

Diana Delgado is an American-born painterbased in Westchester, NY, whose work combines abstraction and representational drawing to evoke themes of love, whimsy, and childhood nostalgia. 

Jen DeNike is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY and Glasgow Scotland. Her multimedia sensory installations function as places of intervention navigating both real and imagined utopias with a sense of sublime temporality. 

Laleh Khorramain is a visual artist whose work of the past decade has spanned stop-motion animations, sound, monoprints, drawings, painted landscapes, portraits, and collage. She removes cultural or historical specificity from her narratives in a search for worlds just beyond the concrete, material one around us. 

Jac Lahav is an artist, curator, and community organizer, born in Israel and currently living in Connecticut. His work involves re-telling new and old narratives about his community, belonging, and shared cultural history.

Rachel Owens is a sculptor and Associate Professor of Art & Design and Chair of the Sculpture Department at SUNY Purchase College. Her recent work explores the precarious nature of existence, where the limbs of people, plants, and trees fold together. She currently lives and works in Armenia, NY.

Ana Wolovick is an artist and curator, born and raised in New York City, now living and working in Brooklyn. She makes intuitively driven composite-paintings that have quasi-political abstract narratives.

Groups

Bushel has hosted many groups, some of which have become converted to occasional programming entities or email lists.

New Grange Farm Club
New Grange began as a monthly meeting at Bushel gathering Catskills area farmers for unscripted social, political, and practical engagements, how-tos and a little rabble-rousing. Farmer things. Now organized by The National Young Farmers Coalition Catskill chapter, New Grange doesn’t always meet monthly but still hosts frequent farm tours, meetups, talks, and other programs. For more information about the National Young Farmer’s coalition please visit them on Facebook or on the web. New Grange events are, as always, open to all farmers, farm workers, farm enthusiasts and activists.

Several Species (Mycology and Herbalism)
Several Species began as a monthly meetup, and continues as a not-quite-monthly series of individually scheduled events. The group offers a chance for herbalists, mycologists, foragers, growers, medicine makers, and those curious about any of the above to gather and talk about their projects and goals, share resources, swap materials and order supplies in bulk, geek out on plants and fungi, host teach-ins and demos, and potentially expand into drop-in community clinics, educational walks for the public, guest lectures and anything else that arises. Several Species (Spp) has its own listserv; attend an event hosted by the group or email info@bushelcollective.org to be added to the list.
