Giant Robot is proud to host a tiny exhibition of colossal proportions curated by artists Jordin Isip and Rodger Stevens.

Dime Bag 3 is the ninth in an ongoing series of events by Isip and Stevens, bringing together over 200 artists from New York City and beyond representing an extraordinary variety of disciplines. Painters, illustrators, graphic designers, filmmakers, photographers, product designers, and others have been invited to create artworks specifically designed to be exhibited in 3-inch plastic bags: dime bags. Each artist was sent one of the symbolic baggies and asked to fill it in any way they wished.

Fountain Art Fair All Weekend

  • Fountain, the independent art fair pioneered by cutting-edge galleries, celebrates its 3rd year in New York.

  • Location

    Pier 66 26th St Hudson River Park
  • Schedule

    March 5-8, 2009 11am–7pm
    VIP/Press: Thurs March 5th
    Reception for the Artists: Fri. March 6, 7pm–midnight

Fountain New York 2009 participating galleries include:

Ad Hoc Art – Brooklyn
Front Room – Brooklyn
Definition Gallery – Baltimore
Glowlab – New York
Leo Kesting – New York
McCaig-Welles – Brooklyn
Stuart Shepherd Gallery – New Zealand
Vagabond-Schmarotzer Gallery – New York

Fountain was launched in March 2006 in New York in an effort to leverage support for independent galleries overlooked by the larger, corporate-sponsored art fairs. The name “Fountain” is a nod to Marcel Duchamp’s controversial sculpture which shook up the art world when it was rejected by the Society of Artists’ exhibition in 1917. Similarly, in defiant contrast with The Armory Show, Art Basel Miami Beach, Pulse, Scope and the numerous other international art fairs, Fountain has received wide public support and critical acclaim for its experimental slant. In form and spirit, the artwork exhibited at Fountain reflects the avant-garde attitude of the Dada art movement, while attracting the attention of the international clientele and top collectors who attend the more traditional fairs.

Ad Hoc Gallery will be showing work by:

Armsrock, C215, Dain, Camilla d’Errico, Leslie Ditto, Eine, Ewelina Ferruso, Gaia, Imminent Disaster, Sarah Joncas, Dan-ah Kim, Hiro Kurata, Tommii Lim, Anthony Lister, LogikOne, Mijn Schatje

January 16th through February 15th 2009

Opening Reception: Friday, January 16th, 7-10pm

Ad Hoc Art is proud to present “Delineations”: a collection of drawings and illustrations from a diverse group of international artists.  Drawing has been and will always be a fundamental part of the art-making process.  Starting as far back as the 1400’s, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer, Michelangelo, and Raphael used drawing as not only a starting point but as a way to communicate things which could not be accomplished in any other medium. Fast forward to the 1900’s as artists such as Max Beckmann, Jean Dubuffet, Arshile Gorky, M. C. Escher, André Masson, and Pablo Picasso not only continued this serious examination of drawing as fine art, but took it to incredible new places through their creativity and talent.  In more recent times artists such as Marcel Dzama, R. Crumb, Dan Clowes, Joe Sacco, Yoshitomo Nara, and Julie Doucet (among many, many others) again redefined how we look at drawing as not only a means to an end but an important and impressive end in itself.  Continuing with this amazing tradition, we present to you a new generation of drawers and illustrators who hope to not only add to this amazing lineage of artists but to also find ways to reinvent and reinterpret how drawing can be used to communicate and enlighten.
