New York, NY | Tour of Martine Gutierrez “ANTI-ICON: APOKALYPSIS” at Ryan Lee Gallery
June 1 | 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Join ArtTable to ring in pride month as we visit Ryan Lee Gallery for a guided tour of ANTI-ICON: APOKALYPSIS, a daring new body of work by artist Martine Gutierrez.
The series continues Guiterrez’s exploration of identity across the cultural landscapes of gender, race and celebrity. In 17 new works, Gutierrez has transformed herself into a multitude of idols. Costumed by the barest of essentials, Gutierrez’s figure is the catalyst, reflecting dystopian futurism upon the symbols of our past. Through each metamorphosis, Gutierrez re-envisions a diverse canon of radical heroines who have achieved legendary cultural influence over thousands of years in both art history and pop culture.

Founded in 2013 by Mary Ryan and Jeffrey Lee, RYAN LEE gallery has established itself as a welcoming place of discovery and dialogue for art ranging from post-war art to the contemporary. Celebrating emerging and established artists and estates, the gallery takes a multi-generational approach to its programming, presenting innovative and scholarly exhibitions across all spectrums of art practices, including painting, photography, video, sculpture, and performance. The gallery takes chances on a wide variety of boundary-pushing artists; their work consistently transcends political, cultural, material, or technical boundaries. In addition, RYAN LEE has, throughout its history, demonstrated its long-standing interest and dedication to feminist, Black and Asian American, as well as queer narratives in the twentieth and twenty first centuries. The gallery is led by partners of different generations and backgrounds with over six decades of combined experiences informing its unique approach.
Martine Gutierrez (b. 1989 Berkeley, CA) is a transdisciplinary artist, performing, writing, composing and directing narrative scenes to subvert pop-culture identity tropes—both personally and collectively intersectional to the discriminations of race, gender, class and nationality. Guiterrez examines advertising in order to hybridize the industry’s objectification of sex with the individual’s pursuit of self, satirically undermining the aesthetics of what we know. It is Gutierrez herself who executes every role—simultaneously acting as subject, artist, and muse. These complicated intersections are innate to Gutierrez’s own multicultural upbringing as a first generation artist of indigenous descent and as an LGBTQ ally. Her malleable, ever-evolving self-image catalogs the confluence of seemingly disparate modes, conveying limitless potential for reinvention and reinterpretation.
