HISTORY In 2015, Edelman Arts curated of the public arts collection for the One World Trade Center in New York. The collection includes a monumental works by José Parla, Argue and Fritz Bultman, Greg Goldberg, and Bryan Hunt. The collection is on view in the North, South and Sixty Fourth Floor lobbies where the installations are viewed by 30,000 visitors a day. Asher Edelman began collecting in the early 1960’s and by the mid 1980’s, he had accumulated one of the preeminent and visionary contemporary art collections of its time. A close friend of Léo Castelli and Ileana Sonnabend, he set trends and many of the artists he collected early on would become the biggest icons in the art world, such as Jasper Johns, Brice Marden, Cy Twombly, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Chamberlain, Lucio Fontana, and Keith Haring, to mention a few. In 1991, he opened FAE, Musée d’Art Contemporain in Lausanne, which presented the first European retrospectives of seminal contemporary American artists, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Mapplethorpe and Peter Halley. “Picasso Contemporain,” an exhibition of the artist’s post war work is still considered an unparalleled exploration of Picasso as a transmitter, interpreter and prophet of the ideas and techniques of Post War art. The trailblazing group exhibition, “Post Human,” co-curated by Chantal Prod’Hom and Jeffrey Deitch at FAE, helped define a new figurative movement and vision in art with artists such as Paul McCarthy, Matthew Barney, Mike Kelley, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons and many more. Viewings by appointment only.

Nabil Nahas is Lebanon’s most renowned artist, having established himself before the current heightened interest in contemporary art of the Middle East, first in New York art circles as a master of color, texture and atmosphere. Although thoroughly schooled in Western abstract painting, Nahas takes his inspiration from a diverse range of influences, most significantly nature, and occasionally Islamic art, in particular its abstract geometric and chromatic qualities. The work for which he is best known are his thickly encrusted starfish and fractal paintings, built up by layer upon layer of acrylic paint mixed with pumice and finished in vivid colors. Nabil Nahas completed his MFA from Yale University in 1973. He has exhibited internationally and has work in a multitude of important collections including, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Vorhees Zimmerli Museum, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey, the Colby College Museum of Art, Maine, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, the Flint Institute of Art, Michigan, the Michigan Museum of Art UMMA, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the High Museum in Atlanta. In July 2013 he was awarded the honor of the National Order of the Cedar, for services to Lebanese culture.

James Nares’ paintings capture the very moment of their creation. They are most frequently made in a single brush stroke, recording a gestural passage of time and motion across the canvas. An integral part of his work is the uniquely crafted brushes which he creates that give an optimum desired effect. He repeatedly creates and erases his strokes, over and over again, until he feels he has made one that represents a precision of balance between intent and improvisation. Nares’ films and videos reference many of the same preoccupations with movement, rhythm, and repetition while also ranging further afield in their scope. His work is included in a number of public and private collections including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of Art, and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. In 2008, Anthology Film Archives hosted a complete retrospective of his films and videos. In Spring 2014, Rizzoli published the first monograph dedicated to James Nares’s work in all media over the last four decades.

Joyce Pensato was born in Brooklyn, New York, where she continues to live and work. Her touring solo show, I Killed Kenny, was shown at the Santa Monica Museum of Art (2013) and then traveled to the Contemporary Art Museum of St Louis (2014). Recent group exhibitions include Empire State, curated by Alex Gartenfeld and Sir Norman Rosenthal, at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Rome (2013); Interior Visions: Selections from the Collection by Alex Katz at the Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville (2012); and A Painting Show at The Speed Museum of Art, Louisville (2011). Pensato’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; SFMoMA, San Francisco; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Dallas Museum of Art; St Louis Art Museum and the FRAC des Pays de la Loire. She has won numerous awards including the Robert de Niro, Sr. Prize (2013), the Award of Merit Medal for Painting, given by the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2012), the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award (1997) and the Guggenheim Fellowship (1996).

Joyce Pensato’s rigorous art embodies a baleful transmutation of American cartoon culture – employing a fast, assured, and gestural hand to shed light on the arguable darkness lurking within our familiar Pop iconography. This monumental work measuring 10 x 14 feet is the largest work on paper she has created, making this extraordinarily unique piece. The rips and tears are intentional and fundamentally a part of her work.

Cathy McClure is a Seattle based artist who shares part of her time in Brooklyn, NY. McClure’s work is centered on the appropriation and re-interpretation of mechanical toys; she is interested in the discrepancy between the perception of an imagined techno-future and the future that we now inhabit. As an artist, she juxtaposes with irony in her sometimes elaborate installations. In 1995, McClure received her BFA from Texas Technological University, followed by her MFA from the University of Washington in 1997. She is the recipient of the 19th Annual Betty Bowen Memorial Award. She has exhibited at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Milton Hershey School Museum, and Art Miami Basel, and she is currently represented by Edelman Arts and Moss in New York, New York.

Britt Boutros-Ghali, the Norwegian painter best known for her vibrant abstract expressionist paintings, has spent over 40 years in Egypt. As one of the most desired artists in Egypt and the Middle East, her magnetic personage and dynamic work draw collectors from around the world. Her oft visited studio is nestled on a barge on the banks of the Nile, is a favorite gathering place for local artists, journalists and intellectuals. As the noise of the city disappears one gets transported to Britt’s unique world. The spirit and vibrance of the characters and surroundings are a powerful source of inspiration of her ongoing series “Women of My World,” which present a naive figurative expression and departure to her abstract work.

Stolen Moments is Yasmine Chatila’s love poem to New York. To capture these moments, her artistic process was as follows; Chatila would find a well-situated New York City apartment with views of apartment interiors across the way, working exclusively at night she would then set up her telescopic and photographic equipment, position the camera through a stranger’s window and patiently wait. As it was “true” surveillance, the artist did not seek permission. However, through a labor intensive post-production process, the artist obscured these intimate portraits, taking documentary events into the realm of fiction and fantasy. Over an eight-month period, Chatila meditated on thousands of Stolen Moments, thus creating her latest body of work comprehensively presented at Edelman Arts, New York.

John Margolies documented the commercial architecture and design lining America’s “highways and byways,” exploring the changing landscape and open-road automobile culture that swept America in the middle of the 20th century. His imagery is both objective and nostalgic, with subjects including mini golf courses, drive-in movie theaters, and the sort of empty small-town main streets suggesting bygone times, as in “Photographs from Roadside America” (1980). Margolies has also lectured on the topic of architectural change, a theme poignantly illustrated in his work.

Carlos Betancourt (1966), Puerto Rican born, works in photography and mixed media. His conceptual and sensationalist work pushes to a glitzy bravado, bending the lines between art, photography and nature. His work alludes to issues of memory and beauty, layering and juxtaposing information based on his own experiences and pop culture.
