Haim Chanin Fine Arts is pleased to present Objects and Lenses – Reclaimed Focus, a fundraising exhibition featuring works by Colombian artist Genevieve Maquinay and photographers Isabelle Armand, Monica Ruzansky, and Thatcher Keats. The exhibition will be on view from November 16 through December 15, 2007. The opening reception will take place at the gallery on Thursday, November 15, from 6 to 8 PM, and is to coincide with New York’s Latin American Cultural Week. Portion of the profits of this event will be donated to the non-for-profit organization Caring for Colombia.

 

This exhibition presents side by side a selection of small-scale sculptures made from various found materials (woods, stones, rusted steel, organic pieces, etc.) and their pictorial interpretation by three photographers. This kaleidoscope of objects and images illustrates the multiplicity of perceptions and readings that an artwork can generate. The found materials, their recycling into sculptures, the creation of new images based on those objects create a chain that find its natural closure in their transformation into philanthropic commitment.

 

Caring for Colombia is a non-for-profit organization working as a bridge between the USA and Colombia. From its base in New York, it mobilizes resources for programs that provide assistance to the victims of the humanitarian crisis devastating Colombia, and that promote change towards a more peaceful country. For more information about the foundation, please visit: www.caringforcolombia.org

 

Haim Chanin Fine Arts continues in its commitment to bring established and renowned artists from Europe and Latin America to New York. Following this exhibition, the gallery will present works by Argentinean artist Eduardo Santiere. Haim Chanin Fine Arts is located in the heart of the city, between the Flat Iron District, West Chelsea and Union Square, at 121 W 19 St, between 6th and 7th Avenues.
