INDEPENDENT 20TH CENTURY

September 7 – 10, 2023

Off Paradise is pleased to announce our participation in Independent 20th Century. The gallery will exhibit historic works by Peter Nadin (b. 1954, Bromborough, U.K.). A key figure of the downtown New York art scene of the late 1970s and 1980s, Nadin is a painter, sculptor and poet whose work explores the practice of mark- and image-making as fundamental, evolutionary human functions.

Off Paradise will present for the first time in over three decades View II or The Artist, (1986), a striking self-portrait of the artist, and the anchor piece of the 1987 “Views” exhibition at Brooke Alexander Gallery, and, subsequently, of “Peter Nadin: Recent Work and Notes on Six Series,” his retrospective at Yale Center for British Art in 1992.

On loan from a Distinguished American Collection, this important work is entering the collection of a major European Institution.

This presentation in the historical setting of the landmark Battery Maritime Building is conceived as a send-off celebration for View II or The Artist to its new home.

The gallery will also debut a selection of watercolor and pastel works on paper from “Views II” (1987), the companion series to “Views” (1986-88), presented here for the first time since their creation.

Nadin’s work is in public and private collections in the U.S. and Europe, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Yale Center for British Art.

INDEPENDENT NEW YORK

May 11-14, 2023

We are delighted to announce our return to Independent New York, taking place at Spring Studios from May 11-14, 2023.

Off Paradise will present Two Minutes to Midnight, a two-person exhibition debuting new work by Michael St. John and Mitchell Charbonneau. A rigorous chronicler of contemporary American culture, St. John explores notions of violence, tragedy, narcissism, indifference, and consumerism through strategies of appropriation and assemblage. Charbonneau’s sculptural interventions similarly deconstruct and recast everyday commercial objects, from folding chairs to air fresheners, with material exactitude and visual wit.

INDEPENDENT NEW YORK

September 9-12, 2021

We are pleased to announce our first-time participation in the Independent Art Fair, taking place at the Battery Maritime Building from September 9-12, 2021.

For Off Paradise’s Independent debut, the gallery will show new and previously unseen work by Scott Covert, Maximilian Schubert and Mitchell Charbonneau.

The exhibition will explore definitions of the body, primarily in its absence, at this marvel of a venue:
“The Battery Maritime Building’s unique design has come to define it as a landmark. Built in the Beaux-Arts Structural Expressionist architectural style, the building’s exposed trusses and rivets contribute to its ornate splendour. A bastion of civic and heroic architecture, it recalls the grandeur of 19th century World Fair halls, and “it is probable that no building designed in similar style will ever again be erected in the City of New York.”

VIP Preview Day:
Thursday, September 9, 11am – 8pm

Public Fair Days:
Friday, September 10, 12 – 7pm
Saturday, September 11, 12 – 7pm
Sunday, September 12, 12 – 6pm
