Carter Burden Gallery presents three new exhibitions: Summer in the City in the East Gallery featuring 14 gallery artists; East Harlem Diptychs in the West Gallery featuring Ellen Wallenstein; and On the Wall featuring Barbara Lubliner. The reception will be held June 29th, 2017 f
In On the Wall, Barbara Lubliner presents an installation entitled Upcycled Tubes: Assert, Defend, Surrender & Youngsters in her first solo show at Carter Burden Gallery. For this installation Lubliner utilizes discarded cardboard tubes to elicit body language and the pared down form of individuals. The artist states “by re-purposing trash into playful art, I shift the focus from environmental blight to creative production.” Each figure is in an expressive posture and relates to the attitude and feelings that embody each of us.
Barbara Lubliner, performance and visual artist, sculptor, panel moderator, teacher, curator and the creator of a feminist newspaper, received her BFA from Boston University School of Fine Arts. Solo exhibitions include the Gibson Gallery Museum at SUNY Potsdam; Main Gallery, Port Washington Public Library, NY; and Pierro Gallery, South Orange, NJ. Group exhibitions include Art in Public Places, Stamford, CT; Gallery Merz, Sag Harbor, NY; Ocean County College, NJ; and University of Rhode Island in Kingston. In New York City, Lubliner has participated in exhibits at the Chelsea Art Museum, Ernest Rubenstein Gallery, and Queens College Art Center. Recent performance venues include the Brooklyn Museum and Le Petit Versailles garden in New York City.
