Works on Water Residency on Governors Island

Works on Water in partnership with Underwater New York is hosting an artists residency on Governors Island from May-October 2018. Artists are invited to develop work and build connections to the water in one of the historic Nolan Row houses on Governors Island.

While in residence on Governors Island, I will be developing Mosholu, a project that maps Tibbetts Brook in the Bronx, a waterway which has been directed underground and rerouted over time. With this work, I pose a series of questions: How does a city whose landscape is in flux, affect the identity of its residents? What is the relationship of urban dwellers to water in poorer neighborhoods versus those in affluent ones? Who is granted access?

Site: Sorel Performance at Kinescope.Gallery

Kinescope Gallery with Fillmore Projects, in conjunction with the exhibition Maya Ciarrocchi Site: Sorel, present a performance about the life and writing of Barbara Sorel. The performance, under the guise of a reading and conversation, will occur on Friday, May 11 from 6-8pm, and will be comprised of reading from Sorel’s novel, Sorel in Love by a curated group of readers. The readings will lead to a broader discussion on the subject of life and death, art, and success. 

Site: Sorel is a meditation on the real and imaginary spaces left behind by the dead. In this work, Ciarrocchi conjures an image of Barbara Sorel, an author and fixture of the 1990s lesbian bar scene in New York City. Combining memories of Sorel’s friends with Ciarrocchi’s own, and by utilizing text from Sorel’s self-published book Sorel in Love, the exhibition and performance merges language with image to reveal where the two women’s experiences intersect and collide. 

Admission is free. Reserving a ticket here is strongly encouraged as space is limited. 

Maya Ciarrocchi is an interdisciplinary artist in New York City. She earned a MFA from the School of Visual Arts and a BFA from Purchase College. 

For press inquiries and appointments please contact info@fillmoreprojects.com

Exhibition:       Maya Ciarrocchi Site: Sorel
Location:         616 E. 9th Street
Dates:              April 20 – May 19, 2018
Reception:       Friday, April 20, 6-8pm
Performance:  Friday, May 11th, 6-8pm

Kinescope.Gallery in collaboration with Fillmore Projects is pleased to announce the opening on Friday, April 20th, of Site: Sorel, the second solo exhibition by New York City based artist Maya Ciarrocchi. The exhibition is comprised of video, prints, 3D models and hand-drafted architectural drawings on the gallery walls.

Site: Sorel is a meditation on the real and imaginary spaces left behind by the dead. In this work, Ciarrocchi conjures an image of Barbara Sorel, an author and fixture of the 1990’s lesbian bar scene in New York City. Sorel, as she was called by her friends, sold drugs to support her writing and was tragically murdered in her East Village apartment in 1999. Some of her writing remains and an obituary appeared in the Village Voice following her murder. Apart from this and the memories of friends, she is largely forgotten by history. Combining these memories with Ciarrocchi's own, and by utilizing text from Sorel's self-published book Sorel in Love, the exhibition merges language with image to reveal where the two women’s experiences intersect and collide.

As part of the exhibition there will be a performance event on Friday, May 11th from 6-8pm, comprised of readings of Sorel’s writing by those who knew her. These readings will lead to a broader discussion on the subject of art, success and the lesbian experience in New York City from the 1970’s to the present.

Gender/Power Composition IV

Gender/Power Composition IV

Maya Ciarrocchi and Kris Grey will perform Gender/Power Composition IV as part of SIGNAL curated by Alexis Heller.

SIGNAL, curated by Alexis Heller, opens at Smack Mellon on March 5 and will be on view through April 17, 2016. This exhibition presents artworks that challenge the gender binary and explore a continuum of self-definition. Working in diverse mediums, these eleven contemporary artists utilize code, collaborative representation, fantasy and play to subvert histories that have denied gender variance. They question authorship over ‘the natural’, make manifest sites of resistance, and reimagine a future where identities are fluid, becoming ad infinitum and celebrated as such.
