“That First Rain in May” by Angel Otero

Where: Hauser & Wirth West Hollywood

When: May 29 – August 24

Why It’s Worth A Look: Woven into Otero’s first Los Angeles showing with Hauser & Wirth are memories of growing up in Puerto Rico. The pieces go through a singular process of production wherein Otero paints on plexiglass, scrapes the layers off, and collages them onto canvas. There, a series of domestic island scenes come to life.

Know Before You Go: Though Otero is most recognized for these unique paintings, the exhibition also sees him return to his sculpture practice. These pieces, also inspired by his upbringing, combine ceramics with metalwork.


Announcing the 2024–25 Rome Prize Winners

Richard Mosse one of they

Extract from the original post by American Academy in Rome · April 2024


The American Academy in Rome announced today the winners of the 2024–25 Rome Prize. These highly competitive fellowships support advanced independent work and research in the arts and humanities. This year, the Rome Prize—the gift of “time and space to think and work”—was awarded to thirty-one American artists and scholars, who will each receive a stipend, workspace, and room and board for five to ten months at the Academy’s eleven-acre campus in Rome, starting this September.

The Rome Prize winners will be presented in person during the Janet & Arthur Ross Rome Prize Ceremony and Concert, taking place this evening at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York. The program, comprising a selection of innovative works by Rome Prize Fellows in musical composition and an arrangement of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, will be performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble under the artistic direction of George E. Lewis (2010 Resident).

“The Rome Prize is one of the most storied fellowship programs in the United States,” said AAR President Peter N. Miller. “Over a thousand people compete for the chance to live and work in Rome, inspired by the city and one another. The Rome Prize winners represent a bridge between the United States and Italy, but also between a present of potential and a future of achievement.”

Rome Prize winners are selected annually by juries of distinguished artists and scholars through a national competition. This year’s competition received 1,106 applications—a record high—from applicants in 46 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico. The acceptance rate was 2.9 percent. This group of Rome Prize winners has approximately 39 percent who identify as persons of color. Thirteen percent were born outside the United States. The incoming class ranges from 26 to 70 years old, with an average age of 42.

These 5 Artists Are Redefining New York’s Art Scene

From Sable Elyse Smith to Jamian Juliano-Villani, these artists are shaping the cultural future of New York.

Extract from the original post by Annika Olsen · February, 14 2024

Though the art world is decidedly international, the New York City art scene holds a special place in its orbit, with a long and storied history of major art moments and avant-garde movements. New York City also maintains a status as a hub where artists live, work, and build community.

It would be impossible to chart everything currently taking place or all the major players at a given moment, but there is, undoubtedly, a class of artists whose works and practices, as well as recent accomplishments, make them ones to watch when considering the forward direction of New York’s art scene.

Below, we’ve brought together five sought-after artists who are contributing to the city’s artistic present and future—and lett you know where and when you can experience their work.

Sculptor and installation artist Kennedy Yanko is recognized for her work with found mental and paint skin, the latter of
which she crafts through a process of pouring out paint and letting it dry until it is akin to a pliable, sheet-like material.
Personally referring to her practice as painting,
the sculptural quality of the paint and heft of the metal simultaneously evokes the work of John Chamberlain and Lynda
Benglis, and the works defy easy categorization.
Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, and currently based in Brooklyn, Yanko arrived on the New York art scene when she
was 19, and her career began gaining significant momentum in the 2010s; in 2017 she was included in a group
exhibition curated by Derrick Adams at Jenkins Johnson gallery and part of “The Aesthetics of Matter,” co-curated by
Mickalene Thomas at Volta New York. In 2021, she was named the Rubel Museum’s Artist-in-Residence—the first
sculptor to receive the position. Her work returned to Miami in late 2023 with the installation of Soul Talk, a monumental
sculpture installed in the Stardust Pavilion, the result of a collaboration between Salon94 and the Miami Design District.
Currently, you can see her work in the city at the Brooklyn Museum in “Brooklyn Abstraction: Four Artists, Four Walls” which is on view through July 28, 2024.

The Art Angle Podcast: How Kennedy Yanko Welded Her Way to Art Stardom

At the outset of April I went to Meisenheimer Hof  for the Hildegard von Bingen Symposium hosted by Therme Art. I was the opening keynote speaker and presented on my practice as it relates to those of Hildegard von Bingen, Emma Kunz and Hilma af Klint. They’re all interdisciplinary, philosophical, spiritual healers and doers whom I’ve been really enjoying researching and getting to know. Hilma I know most intimately—her work set the stage for my solo exhibition, “Moving Weight” opening tomorrow at CFHILL in Stockholm.


The symposium could not have been more enlightening or rejuvenating; joining the panel with brilliant Artistic Director of Serpentine Galleries, Hans Ulrich Obrist, moderated by Therme Art CEO and curator, Mikolaj Sekutowicz, was a joy and something I hope to repeat.  Linked here is a video overview and recap of the symposium. Thank you again to the whole Therme Art team for having me and hosting this incredible event.




Since the symposium, I’ve primarily been working from Amsterdam. I came over here to build a sculpture for the Unlimited curated section opening at Art Basel. I knew I wanted to make this work in Europe, and that I wanted to make it even bigger than what I’d done as the Rubell Museum’s Artist in Residence in Spring of 2021. That intention has carried me from start to finish and I’m really proud to say—we’re doing it! The work, By means other than the known senses, will debut in Basel, Switzerland this June with Vielmetter LA


Above is a look into the Amsterdam studio. 




In the meantime: as I mentioned, I’m opening “Moving Weight” an exhibition where I am in dialogue with Hilma af Klint at CFHILL in Stockholm, Sweden. The sculptures in this show are all the result of gut reactions. I wrote this statement about the exhibition, but the takeaway is really: expansion = yes, contraction = no. I hope this show honors Hilma’s constant striving to do what she had to do; her dedication to intuition. It’ll be open April 29 – May 27. If you happen to be in the area, stop in for the opening. I’ll be hosting an artist talk.

I’ll also have three new works, including one outdoor work, at the Parrish Museum as part of “Set it Off,” the group exhibition curated by Deux Femmes Noires, Racquel Chevremont and Mickalene Thomas. The exhibition will include artists Leilah Babirye, Torkwase Dyson, February James, Karyn Olivier, Kameelah Janan Rasheed and myself, and will run from May 22 through July 24, 2022.

 Here’s some text about the exhibition: 



Set It Off  is Chevremont and Thomas’s third curatorial project together. They were drawn to the thoughtful integration of architecture and landscape at the Parrish, and embraced the opportunity to consider the ways artists are using and manipulating space to explore identity and place today—a theme that runs through each of these artists’ practices. The title, Set It Off—to do something significant, to do something with intensity or with a hurricane-like force, or to change an atmosphere for the better—points to the varied, impactful work featured in the exhibition. Chevremont and Thomas showcase these six women who, each in their own right, have “set it off,” creating bold, compelling work that pushes far beyond the perceived limitations of their chosen genres and mediums.”

Latest news about Lilly Lulay

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am pleased to share some news and upcoming talks in Frankfurt, Cologne and Berlin with you and would look forward to seeing you in person at one of the events.

For all those who can only take a virtual look I have updated my website

Hoping that you are well wherever you are!




Durchblick. Lilly Lulay und Susa Templin

I would be happy to see you next week on the occasion of an artist talk and catalogue presentation with Susa Templin and Christoph Schütte at Kunststiftung DZ Bank Frankfurt. Please reserve your seat here since places are limited. 

For those who can’t make it to Frankfurt I have updated my website with Images and a video interview (DE) with Susa Templin, me and curator Christina Leber.

You can also listen to this short radio feature (DE) from HR2 about our exhibition.

05.05.2022, 7 pm artist talk and catalog presentation (DE) : Lilly Lulay and Susa Templin in conversation with Christoph Schütte (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)

»Lilly Lulays und Susa Templins Umgang mit dem Medium Fotografie trennt eine ganze Epoche. Jene radikale Zäsur, die das analoge Zeitalter vom digitalen trennt. Und die nicht ohne Folgen für das eigene Medium bleiben kann. Was sich im prinzipiellen Zweifel, im Wandel vom Verständnis des fotografischen Bildes als Dokument also, ebenso niederschlägt wie in der heute unendlichen Verfügbarkeit der Bilder, in der Wahl der Mittel geradeso wie im künstlerischen Vorgehen. Was bedeutet das für ihre Arbeit? Oder sind sich beider Positionen womöglich sogar näher, als man denkt? Das sind Fragen, die sich auch angesichts der aktuellen Kataloge der beiden Künstlerinnen stellen. Und inmitten ihrer Bilder womöglich drängender denn je.«

The exhibition is still on view till 21.5. 2022
