Adam Handler, "American Children," opening on Sept. 4

Presented by Fred Torres Gallery


Reminiscent of Basquiat's use of strong organic scribbles, vibrant colors, and iconography, Handler carves his own path with his contemporary faux-naïf style, distilling people and animals to their core. From large, joyous, eye-popping large canvases depicting love and childhood to smaller monochromatic dark works on paper of fear and pain, his pieces are universal; there is something for everyone.

We would like to thank everyone who made Pierogi what it is today by presenting works by many of the artists who have participated in exhibitions over the last twenty years. It is an eclectic group of work by over one hundred seventy artists and will be installed salon style. Pierogi opened in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on North 9th Street September 1994, where it remains today. Williamsburg doesn’t look the same as it did twenty or thirty years ago but it was around that time that visual artists flooded in to Brooklyn and created multiple communities and an international destination for savvy art viewers. Pierogi’s reputation for a unique unconventional approach is grounded in this context. Over time Williamsburg’s example fostered numerous artist communities throughout Brooklyn and Queens which continue to expand to this day. Pierogi represents the work of emerging, mid-career, and established artists engaging in conceptually driven, process oriented work in a wide range of media: from the diagrammatic drawings of Mark Lombardi, the large-scale, nuanced still life drawings of Dawn Clements, and the interactive installations of Andrew Ohanesian, to the historically significant work of Kim Jones (who began his career as a performance artist in LA in the early 1970’s), as well as curated exhibitions such as the award-winning Dead Tree installation (a recreation of the Robert Smithson work originally shown in Dusseldorf’s Kunsthalle, 1969). From early 2006 through 2008, Pierogi operated a second gallery in Leipzig, Germany, which allowed us to expand an international audience and artist base. In 2009 we opened a second space in Williamsburg, The Boiler, which is a more expansive space in a former factory boiler room that allows us to mount ambitious installations, performances, and other events such as Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder’s In Orbit, a large wheel that the artists lived on for ten days in early 2014. Pierogi’s Flat Files, part of the gallery since its inception, are ever-changing with new work added regularly and have traveled to many locations, including: Gasworks (London), Cornerhouse (Manchester), Kunstlerhaus (Vienna), Brooklyn Museum, Weatherspoon Art Gallery, The Andy Warhol Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Bard and Vassar Colleges, and Kent State University, among others. As part of our 20th Anniversary celebration, we will also hold a Brooklyn Gravity Racers event at The Boiler in mid-September. This is an exhibition and event that Pierogi has put on every five years or so and is about having some fun. It was the brainchild of Gary Bachman who, unfortunately, passed away in 2012 and this race is dedicated to his memory. Artists and art lovers of all sorts are invited to make a racer. They are made from small kits purchased from the Cub Scouts of America that include a block of wood, a set of wheels, and regulations that, in our race, are followed by some and completely disregarded by others. We will have four categories and trophies: the Speed Award, the Heavyweight Division (how many artists really follow the weight restriction?), the Aesthetic Award, and the What Were You Thinking? Award. We expect to have around 350 unique entries that will be raced from September 16th through the 19th. Preliminary races will be held September 16th through 18th with finals held on September 19th. The cars will be on view at The Boiler from September 11th through the 21st. As always, works held in the Flat Files will be available for viewing at Pierogi during the anniversary exhibition.
