An important announcement: Christopher Stout Gallery, New York will be changing our name to ADO Project in correlation with a gallery structure change to a not for profit organization.

“ADO” is an acronym for “Art During the Occupation” and serves as a constant statement of protest against our current national leadership.

More than ever, our gallery will remain steadfast in its mission to show subversive and difficult work, serving as a platform for discourse on work that is challenging to authority paradigms, feminist, queer, anti-establishment, hyper-aggressive, mystic, and/or joyously sexual.

RECLAMATION OF THE 100TH MONKEY

ERIC GOTTSHALL
January 27—February 19, 2017
Opening: Friday, January 27, 6-10pm

Christopher Stout Gallery, New York is pleased to announce, “Reclamation of the 100th Monkey” by CSG/NY by conceptual artist Eric Gottshall, a solo exhibition consisting of sculpture, performance, sound, and video. 

In the artist’s own words:

“My art attempts to satirize pinnacle moments in human evolution. Commonly know as the 100th monkey phenomenon, this phrase articulates the very moment when human involvement in a given social trend explodes to ubiquitous proportions. I thus create faux medical devices ( F. A. C. E. Units: Facilitating Analogue Cerebral Exploration), which attempt to mitigate, or even eliminate said social movements from happening. These devices demonstrate the primal pessimism and fear; which remains persistent through our species when new, shifting sociopolitical trends, for better or worse, emerge.

In this instance, my four F.A.C.E. units (“Digital-Vision”, “Pano-Vision”, “Foresight”, and “Voyeur-Vision”) articulate an inherent fear one may feels towards the codependency between a digital native, and the digital means through which they communication/observe. In my dystopian projection that is our planets near future, our most formative generations have all but lost a tangible connection with society, nature, love, sex, etc. In trying to curb the effects of human withdrawal, these F.A.C.E. units, all requiring distinctly different involvement by the wearer, provide a middle ground proxy for those individuals most disconnected.” 

Eric is represented in New York by CSG/NY and has previously shown work in 4 previous projects with the gallery. This is his first New York solo.

Christopher Stout Gallery, New York presents, THE LEGACY STONE (aka the Donald Trump Tombstone) a sculpture solo by Brian Andrew Whiteley.

A recent article by New York Magazine media property Bedford + Bowery does an admirable job of encapsulating the story and the journey of the Donald Trump Tombstone…

“Remember the Trump Tombstone? Also known as “Legacy Stone,” it was a 400+ pound granite tombstone created by artist Brian Andrew Whiteley initially placed in Central Park, bearing the name of one Donald J. Trump. It had no death date but rather the message “Made America Hate Again.” It briefly mystified the public, but was ultimately unmasked as being made upon request at a South Slope memorial shop, and was confiscated by the NYPD.

In July, Whiteley was able to retrieve it, and now gallerist Christopher Stout will be displaying it at a pop-up location via East Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Fire Proof. The original stone will be present, alongside a photograph of it in the Park taken by Ventiko as well as a grave rubbing of the stone, created in collaboration with “master printer” James Stroud.”

Brian is represented in New York by CSG/NY and has previously shown work in 3 previous projects with the gallery, including a project room gallery presentation last December. This is his first solo exhibition with CSG/NY.
