Denny Dimin Gallery Hong Kong in Artsy

Early last week, a well-heeled group of international gallerists and collectors infiltrated Central Hong Kong’s busy streets as Hong Kong Art Week kicked off. Before the seventh edition of Art Basel in Hong Kong commenced, a flurry of exhibitions opened in galleries across the city, including at some younger, hipper spaces, such as Empty and Blindspot, which have set up shop on the island’s Southside district of Wong Chuk Hang. The events offered visitors and locals myriad opportunities to discover…Read More

Denny Dimin Gallery Moves to New Space in Tribeca

Denny Dimin Gallery, which has been located on New York’s Lower East Side since 2013, is moving to a new space in Tribeca this spring. The new site, at 39 Lispenard, will be down the street from the future homes of Andrew Kreps Gallery and Canada, who are leaving Chelsea and the L.E.S., respectively for the area. “It’s been really scary and sad in the Lower East Side for the past couple of years,” Robert Dimin told ARTnews. “Everyone’s either leaving or closing.

Denny Dimin Gallery at UNTITLED SF in The Art Newspaper

Art dealers are still plumbing the depths of the West Coast’s murky art market waters, but California’s Bay Area is home to an increasingly strong collector base driven by powerful local art advisors and buoyed by institutional efforts to cultivate the art scene across commercial and nonprofit sectors. That was more or less the consensus from new and returning dealers alike at the FOG Art + Design and Untitled Art fairs in San Francisco this past weekend (17-20 January), many…Read More

Denny Dimin Gallery at UNTITLED SF in ARTNews

As San Francisco weathered two very minor earthquakes and braced against voracious rain that forecasters had classified as an “atmospheric river,” two art fairs in the city—FOG Design+Art and Untitled—went about their business of opening with nothing but signs of positivity in sight. The older, more established FOG and the newer upstart Untitled (a West Coast satellite of a fair initiated in Miami) offered different vibes but together courted collectors and curiosity-seekers to a Bay Area art scene that rose…Read More

Amanda Valdez Reviewed in Less Than Half

I left my conversation with Amanda Valdez carrying with me a modest list of book recommendations ranging in subject from myths of the moon to a material history of the United States. That I had such a list came as no surprise, as I had frequently heard Valdez described in various articles as a “research-based artist.” Being a research-based artist, however, does not mean that she is a didactic artist, intent on teaching us something with her work. “I don’t…Read More

Erin O’Keefe at UNTITLED Miami in Artsy

Back on the beach, UNTITLED featured a relatively breezy scene. Denny Dimin Gallery, however, was blissfully busy. The gallery reported selling around 30 works by artist Erin O’Keefe by Friday morning—all close-up photographs of brightly painted objects that resemble paintings at first glance. At the booth, Elizabeth Denny and Robert Dimin attempted to count exactly how many pieces they’d sold: one to the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, one to the Cleveland Clinic, and two to trustees at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the Wadsworth Atheneum….Read More

“Our industry is being watched with greater diligence.”  -ROBERT DIMIN OF NEW YORK’S DENNY DIMIN GALLERY Robert Dimin of the New York-based Denny Dimin gallery, which is showing at Untitled Art, Miami this year, says he sought counsel from an accountant and lawyer ahead of the fair, in light of the recent legislation. “Our industry is being watched with greater diligence,” Dimin says. “As a young gallery, even a small mistake could send us into a spiral with legal problems.”…Read More

Dana Sherwood in The New York Times Style Magazine

IN THE PHOTOGRAPH, 16 raw yolks sit in a plastic ice-cube tray, each compartment brimming with albumen. Around the tray lie broken eggshells, cast off on a dimensionless blue surface. As a composition, it’s simple and striking, with saturated Jolly Rancher colors, the kind of image that pops on Instagram. But it doesn’t tell the story we’ve come to expect from food photographs that dominate social media: There’s no teasing promise of deliciousness or even edibility. The yolks are sunshine-yellow…Read More

Portraiture also found a home at the Lower East Side’s Art Week. Two artists, represented in two different galleries, have unique takes on the subject. Jessie Edelman’s Muse exhibition at the Denny Dimin Gallery seeks a disidentification of the figures she paints. In this, she wants her floating graphic figures with organic contoured outlines to disrupt specifity and embrace ecumenical power. Each figure is a muse, meant to rework symbolic, iconic and allegorical meanings: an ambitious task in a society that craves literal…Read More

Jessie Edelman in i-D

This enchanting solo exhibition, Muse, by Jessie Edelman presents large scale, brightly colored paintings, all done in accordance with the golden ratio. Edelman asks us, who is the muse? In her presentation of nine lush goddesses, Edelman turns the idea of the passive muse on it’s head — reimagining the muse as the ultimate artist — and reinventing her in the 21st century.

Jessie Edelman in Elephant

Jessie Edelman, Muse at Denny Dimin Gallery Wisconsin-born, Brooklyn-based artist Jessie Edelman has created a new series of paintings that form a “pantheon” of nine muses based on goddesses from ancient Greek mythology. Edelman’s images aim to subvert the ongoing understanding of a muse as an object of beauty and passivity, and instead imagine the muse as artist. These nine characters feature throughout the paintings as dynamic, creative narrators of their own stories, rather than inspirations for others—“reclaiming” the muse and…Read More

Amanda Valdez reviewed in Brooklyn Rail

By Grant Klarich Johnson In Amanda Valdez’s First Might, passages of quilting, oil painting, and embroidery floss combine to create canvases in which craft and art’s textures synthetically blend. This pastiche mode arrives in the highly tactile surfaces of large works like my sister (2018), featuring pinwheel-patterned, quilted borders that frame an image of a monumental vase rendered out of luscious swaths of Kelly green and emerald embroidery floss, balanced beside blocks of solid slate grey paint. In Lover’s Link…Read More

Future Retrieval in show reviewed in LA Times

Review: Humor and human clay meld in ‘The Incongruous Body’ at AMOCA If there was any question about the connection between the material of the self — human clay — and the stuff of sculpture, Robert Arneson’s 1988 work on paper, “Head Wedged,” makes the relationship clear. The ferociously funny Funkmeister renders himself in terracotta hues, scrunching his chin with one hand and reaching his opposite arm overhead to press against his temple. He’s doing to himself what ceramic artists…Read More
