I did not translate them (Google Translate did). I did not pay the person who printed that patchwork of texts or sent it to you. But I find it great to quote each of them.

The Joyce Yahouda Gallery and The Invisible Dog Art Center (Brooklyn) present Being touched by Massimo Guerrerra. Text by Nicolas Mavrikakis, curator No, this exhibition will not simply be a display of objects. It will indeed count a variety of paintings, sculptures, drawings… but the whole is greater than the sum of these artworks. It is also more than an installation. And it is not a performance per se. This exhibition could rather be defined as a meeting place between the artist and the public, with art serving as a frame. A way for visitors to be touched by the works, but also by the creative process. Massimo Guerrera’s practice takes into account the intangible aspects of encounters between individuals, in this case between himself and the community. For several years, Guerrera has been working towards defining art as a tool for social interaction; his sessions with the public nourish his approach, and are being repeatedly referred to in his paintings, sculptures, and drawings.Thus the public will be invited to meet the artist, to share conversations with him, and even to partake in his creative process.

Buddhas, bankers, fortune tellers, a chorus of skulls & a young revolutionary. Cats, toads, flies & lots of birds. Typewriters, clocks, hanging light bulbs, moneybags, false teeth, skyscrapers & volcanoes. Carré rouge, carré blanc, the fleur-de-lys, the rainbow coalition flag. David Elliott’s latest conspiracies of cut-out characters & objects mix the phantasmagorical with the political like a madcap 3-Penny Opera.

“With the Morocco series Sylvia Safdie set out to investigate what happens when a community long identified with a particular location is displaced. […] Her interest and sensitivity to the issue of displacement as transformation is due in no small part to her own [experience].” Excerpts from Eric Lewis, The Video Art of Sylvia Safdie The Gallery will exceptionally be closed on Thursday, September 5 and Saturday, September 14, 2013

“Feuilletés transposes this idea of layered images: a photography, a pattern, an outline of an object or a person, a cross. This composite amalgam is the free union of images, in the idea of cadavre exquis...

“Faraj creates pure intimacy in these works that suggest more than they reveal. She invites the viewer to reconcile the feminine side of eroticism with that of the traditionally hypocritical male experience—to rehumanize a pornography that is too often alienated by the business of collagen and silicone.

Une installation au ralenti is a project initiated by Massimo Guerrera at the Joyce Yahouda Gallery. For five weeks, Massimo Guerrera will fill the gallery space to create a personal place where studio and exhibition space meet. The artist moves the boundaries of the exhibit to transform it into a living space that he will occupy over its duration, depending on his interventions.

The Divine Tragedy: The Tower, the latest exhibit from artist Céline B. La Terreur, explores the notions of motherhood and madness through the drama of the Duplessis Orphans. For the last few years, Céline B. La Terreur has lived on the site of what used to be the garden of the Louis-H. Lafontaine (formerly Saint-Jean-de-Dieu) Hospital, whose imposing tower served as a backdrop to her first experiences as a mother. The artist spent two years studying the site, uncovering a history rife with secrets. Reaching out to former Duplessis Orphans, she collected accounts of their experiences at the St-Jean-de-Dieu Hospital, revealing the tragedy of their painful history. A tragedy in which, to this day, scandalous revelations are still silenced by the provincial government. A tragedy that shakes the moral pillars of Quebec’s society. A tragedy that must not be forgotten. Through video, painting, and sculpture, the artist expresses her fears, uncertainties, and musings, peering into this tragedy thorough the dual lenses of motherhood and womanhood.

The exhibition Blow Up presents a group of paintings in black and white and in colour. The object that served as their genesis is a bronze statuette, cast from an original plaster entitled Débuts and created by the Canadian sculptress É. de Montigny-Giguère (1878-1969). The writer Yves Navarre, who had the casting done, gave Fabrizio Perozzi one of these statuettes as a gift in the 1990s.
