chashama 266, 266 W 37th Street, New York, NY10018 USA
March 23, 2017 - March 28, 2017
2-6PM and by appointment
Jonny Star is pleased to announce the opening of The Undone Ritual, her first solo exhibition in New York. Star has, in the past participated in various group exhibitions in the City, as well curating two international group exhibitions at Rush Arts Gallery (2015) and chashama 266 (2014) supported in part by the Berlin Senate Cultural Affairs Department and chashama NY. From chashama 266, a tiny shop in the heart of Manhattan, Jonny Star invites us to a special intervention. For The Undone Ritual, Star creates an installation comprising her Free Your Soul tapestries, small-format bronzes and her typical Puffs, seat cushions. The shop window is to be cloaked, concealing what are deemed to be “explicit images” unsuitable for passing eyes. In the heart of Manhattan, in the middle of this city, a common ritual will unfold, veiled in secrecy. Come and be part of the opening on March 23, from 6PM to 10PM.
On Sunday, March 26, from 4PM to 6PM, a selection of artists and curators will make their contributions to The Undone Ritual as Jonny Star presents and signs her new German/English monograph, See Me, Feel Me, Touch Me, Heal Me, published by Distanz. (Visit Jonny Star's website for the round-up of artists.)
