Now Representing Thiago Rocha Pitta
Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to announce representation of Brazilian artist Thiago Rocha Pitta. Working with a wide array of mediums, the artist seeks to address the relationship between society and the cyclical, ungovernable occurrences in nature. His works incorporate multimedia installations, videos, photographs, and watercolor, as well as natural materials that derive from and interact with the earth. Pitta’s craft is exploratory: birthed from a kaleidoscopic array of raw materials, he combines the manufactured and the naturally occurring, proposing an alternate perspective on nature and where it stands in relation to contemporary culture.  
 
Thiago Rocha Pitta (b. 1980, Tiradentes, Brazil) lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil. Considered one of Brazil’s brightest rising contemporary artists, Pitta was featured in the 2012 São Paulo Biennial in which he created an installation consisting of half-buried silver flags emerging out of mounds of red earth. More recently he has held solo shows at Galeria Millan in São Paulo, Brazil (2011) as well as Gluck50 Gallery in Milan, Italy (2013). His first solo exhibition with Marianne Boesky Gallery will take place in the spring of 2015 at its BOESKY EAST location.
Now Representing Dean Levin

Levin’s practice combines mediums and materials to create abstract works that blur the line between process and product. Working in sculpture, painting, and installation, Levin lends an architectural sensibility to the aesthetic exploration of space and light. Combining industrial elements such plaster and tile with more traditional materials such as oil paint and canvas, Dean relies on both the physical and chemical properties of his chosen materials, activating the visual and conceptual tension that arises from their interaction.

Dean Levin (b. 1988, Johannesburg, South Africa) lives and works in New York City. He received a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute in 2012. Levin’s debut solo exhibition, 1X1, at Robert Blumenthal Gallery, New York, featured an interactive steel-framed sculpture that contained several paintings meant to be viewed as either one artwork or a series of individual objects. Levin’s work is currently on view at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York (through August 1). A solo exhibition at Retrospective Gallery, Hudson, New York opens on Friday, August 2.

For further information about Dean Levin, please contact Ricky Manne:
rm@marianneboeskygallery.com or 212.680.9889.

BOESKY EAST
Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of BOESKY EAST, a new 1,100 square foot exhibition space at 20 Clinton Street in New York's Lower East Side. As a pendant to Marianne Boesky Gallery's East 64th Street townhouse, which opened in 2010 as a venue dedicated to providing deeper historic context for the Chelsea-based Gallery's artists, BOESKY EAST will bring the Gallery's program and curatorial vision to the more experimental climate of the Lower East Side. 
 
Regular programming at BOESKY EAST will commence in September 2014. Exhibitions planned through the fall season include Adam Helms, Melissa Gordon, and Serge Alain Nitegeka.
 
BOESKY EAST is located at 20 Clinton Street, between East Houston and Stanton Streets.

"Salvatore Scarpitta: Traveler"

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming exhibition of Salvatore Scarpitta: Traveler at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, July 17, 2014 - January 11, 2015, curated by Melissa Ho. The timing of this exhibition signifies a culmination of the gallery's commitment over the past five years to bring Scarpitta's vision and work to the forefront of the contemporary art dialogue.  With few works remaining, the estate in its official capacity will disband and the gallery will be stepping down as its representative.  However, we will continue to champion this great artist's work in forthcoming solo exhibitions as well as at art fairs. Stella Scarpitta Cartaino will continue to control her father's copyright and will manage use of the artist's imagery.  We are very proud of our contributions to Scarpitta's legacy and are honored to have participated for these past five years.  We are extremely thankful to all of those people around the world who helped us learn and who shared their knowledge and expertise on both Scarpitta, the man, and his work:  invaluable contributions to art history.
