Solos x3

Rotating exhibitions by: Colin J. Radcliffe, Marie-Dolma Chophel, and Carla Repice
Curated by Michael Gormley

Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Friday, 1-7 PM and Saturday, 12-6 PM

Equity Gallery is pleased to present Solos x3, a rotating series of three solo exhibitions featuring Colin J. Radcliffe, Marie-Dolma Chophel, and Carla Repice. In this series, Equity Gallery combines the breezy, spur-of-the-moment spontaneity of pop-up solo shows with the connected nature of group exhibitions. Each participant’s body of work is given the spotlight at the gallery for a two week period over the course of a month of a half. While the series allows for the artists to be the sole focal point in their own individual exhibitions, the rapid-fire transitory period between the shows creates a relationship among the other artists’ works. Through this series, seemingly vastly different creative outputs are contextualized. Thematic overlaps that were initially unnoticeable emerge organically, all without any of the artists’ works being compromised or diluted for the sake of an overarching concept.

Solos x3 consists of Colin J. Radcliffe’s Left on Read, opening on Thursday, April 18th, Marie-Dolma Chophel’s Parallel Worlds, opening on Thursday, May 2nd, and Carla Repice’s The White Problem, opening on Thursday, May 16th.

The series begins on April 18th and ends May 25th, 2019.


Carla Repice: The White Problem

May 16th – May 25th, 2019
Opening Reception- Thursday, May 16th, 6 – 8 PM
Equity Gallery, 245 Broome Street, New York, NY 10002
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Friday, 1 – 7 PM and Saturday, 12 – 6 PM

 Carla Repice probes the effects of racism and dehumanization on the human psyche. She aims to expand and deepen what and how meanings of whiteness are transferred, understood and shared through the language of painting. Using found images online as reference, the paintings stand at a distance from the photographs, but not to the subject matter, witnessing a complex narrative of targets, shields, divisions, violences, and other social forces shaped by Western thought. The White Problem points to the exposed underbelly of paranoia, individualism and rage in Trump’s America.

 The White Problem is the final exhibition of Solos x3, a rotating series of three solo exhibitions. The exhibition will run at Equity Gallery from May 16 through May 25, 2019.
