Charlie Masson Projects in New York

Charlie Masson has some exhibitions coming up this month in New York.

People Who Need People:
Group exhibition curated by Beatrice Shen.
'The exhibition reflects on the transient nature of modern interaction and reasserts human presence that is often lost in the day to day. Each artist confronts markers of identity and consciousness through their individualistic styles. The focus on humanity and connectivity is reinforced through each artists' hand. The culmination of the works offer unique and authentic dimensions to experiential and imaginative narratives.'
7 Dunham Gallery, 7 Dunham Place, Brooklyn, NY 11249.
Opening Reception: Tuesday 12 May from 6 - 9 pm.
Continues 13 - 15 May (by appointment)

Exhibition and silent auction of 100 pieces of art by different artists using 10" x 10" wood substrate. Bids start at $100. Opening Reception and Silent Auction: Friday 15 May, 6 - 10 pm. Exhibition continues 16 - 17 May 2015. Closing Party: Sunday 17 May, 6 - 11 pm. Court Square Studios, 21 - 48 44th Rd, Long Island City, NY 11101

Open Studio Weekend:

La Pasta Rigata:
'Based on products by a renowned Italian pasta producer, Masson presents for the first time this series of works created on corrugated cardboard depicting various furrowed pasta shapes, in which the exposed undulations of the support playfully mimic the subject’s ridges. The series pays homage to the simplicity of Italian cuisine, drawing influence from the Italian art movement of Arte Povera, which embraced a return to everyday simple objects and messages in art. The works displayed here in a nurturing locale are also a nod to the artist’s Italian maternal roots.'
Basta Pasta NYC, 37 W 17th St., New York, NY 10011.
