ABOUT DAVID KING REUBEN

London born, New York based David King Reuben is a multimedia artist. When he first came to the city he gained prominence almost immediately in the underground art world, and is known for his expressive portraits and tableaus. In an empty warehouse space on Berry Street in Williamsburg (dubbed “The Madhouse”), Reuben and his cohorts threw a bacchanal every night of the week, resulting in hundreds of paintings, music and wild improvised DIY shows. “We used to keep the door open, because what was anyone going to steal—a painting or a song?” Reuben says. 
David keeps the “madhouse” spirit but has gone from shows in his garage to the most anticipated exhibitions in the city. From Art basel in Miami, to the Frieze Art Fair in London, his works continue to inspire conversation and veneration. Davids infectious spirit possesses everything that he works on, making each piece gleam with a distinctive kind of magic.

Meet the Artists: HEATHER ANNE HALPERT & ANASTASIA KOLAS @ Lubov | 373 Broadway, Suite 207

Meet the Artists: HEATHER ANNE HALPERT & ANASTASIA KOLAS @ Lubov | 373 Broadway, Suite 207

Would you like to meet and chat with the artists about their work? Join us for an artists' talk at Lubov with two of the artists on view, Heather Anne Halpert & Anastasia Kolas. They will be discussing where their inspirations come from, and how it translates into their work.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Inset brings together three independent works by Heather Anne Halpert, Ruth Höflich and Anastasia Kolas, each tuning to the malleability of a produced environment. Awareness tracks with a delay, while the senses are ordered, solidified by unseen forces into habits of subtle leveling and filtering, on repeat. 
Peripheral, embedded, glimpse at a glance: Inset is a lopsided diptych in a room, video wraparound as sculpture dressed up to audition for a play in three parts. The play bill promises a dramatic reenactment of pre-set, side-effect and agency. Roger Caillois describes dissymmetry as the accidental cut or break in an established symmetry. It is by definition transient, a moment of change into something new. Strung together across two channels, the video works invite the viewers to revisit their daily entanglement within the visual and sensory flow.
