Interested parties can also attend a second university lecture by the artists the same day on the subject "Exploring Design Practice," sponsored by the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design.

"En 1973, Peter Campus marque le jeune art vidéo avec Three Transitions, essai depuis abondamment commenté. Grâce au fond vert, il donne l'illusion qu'il se poignarde dans le dos, s'efface Ic visage puis brûle son propre reflet... Cet attrait pour l'expérimentation visuelle remonte sans doute à l'adolescence, quand le New-Yorkais s'entiche des films des magiciens de la couleur Michael Powel! et Emeric Pressburger. Il étudie ensuite le documentaire et travaille pour la télé, ce qui le dégoûte des grosses équipes de tournage. En 1966, après avoir réalisé, seul, un court métrage expérimental («une bouse», rigole-t-il aujourd'hui), il se rend à l'évidence : sa vocation, c'est l'art vidéo. Alors que le Jeu de Paume consacre à l'artiste de 80 ans sa première exposition monographique française, Peter Campus nous a parlé de l'influence du cinéma sur son œuvre."

"This week Tim Youd, a performance artist from California, marked 50 years since Orton’s death by retyping all his plays on a single sheet of paper, using the kind of typewriter used by the playwright. 'What Orton did would be considered an artistic intervention,' Mr Youd said. 'They altered the books in a titillating way, would put the books back and they’d be picked up by an unsuspecting person, who would be shocked.'"

By juxtaposing these works, viewers may discern common threads, yet also appreciate the great variety of artistic responses encompassed by the term 'figuration.'"

January 5, 2017

Joe Orton was one of the UK’s most significant authors of the 20th century. He was also known, to a lesser degree, for his collage work. Often illicit or of a "smutty" nature, the collages were made by altering books stolen from the public library, an activity that eventually landed Orton in jail. For the exhibition What the Artist Saw, MOCA London has invited three contemporary artists, David Lock, Louise Plant, and Tim Youd, to make new work reflecting on Orton as part of the UK’s LGBT History Month. Performance artist Tim Youd will retype Orton's Collected Plays on a single sheet of paper from 20 January to 5 February 2017, performing at the South Library in Islington and the Queen's Theatre in the West End - both locations significant to Orton’s life and work.

François Bucher wrote this essay while being inspired and informed by the conversations that took place at the Haus Der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) during the first Anthropocene Campus in 2014 and during the sequel in 2016, which sought to tackle more specifically the idea of a technosphere. This essay, stemming from experiences in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, found a good suture point in the context of the HKW and more specifically within the context of the 2016 seminar and workshop titled "Knowing (in) the Anthropocene."

"Unlike her European contemporaries who used dreamy imagery, Lundeberg’s Post-Surrealist works portrayed carefully planned, concrete subjects. In the 1960s, the art form led her to explore geometric abstraction in landscapes, still lifes, and interiors. Her work during that time helped pioneer California hard-edge painting, a technique that uses abrupt transitions between the colors."

Involved in the early development of conceptual art, Burgin takes a methodical, analytical approach, alerting us to the way our minds make sense of experience."

"Today, at the entrance to the swank new replacement facility (in the same location as the old one), and surrounded by native plantings and an elegant molded concrete facade, is a commissioned, site-specific sculpture by New York City–based artist Jean Shin, titled Reclaimed. In the spirit of the new complex, where waste is carefully sorted into various categories of renewables, Shin’s work is constructed from recycled rebar collected at the old facility."

Review: Victor Burgin

Review: Victor Burgin

September 30, 2016

By Alex Kitnick, 4 Columns

 

"Consisting of two silent, sumptuous, and somewhat ponderous digital projections, the exhibition is titled Midwest in reference to the central swath of the US. (Born in Sheffield, Burgin has always kept an eye on goings-on in the States, and another body of work, US 77, is currently up at the Slought Foundation in Philadelphia.) While this is suggestive territory to map in an election year, Burgin’s videos are far removed from current exigencies: instead they depict desert flats, eerie interiors, startling rock formations, modern architecture."

By Gabriela Amerio, Canadian Design Resource

 

"We think that quality of life is paramount in good cities. Good design and good art reflects a commitment to public space that fosters a sense of belonging and a sense of place. We would argue that public spaces, bicycle networks, and connective paths for mobility function along side public art.  So really, our position is that public art emanates from the good ideas surrounding new urbanism."

"Space is the place in Victor Burgin’s work, which looks at how prairies and landscapes get embedded in our memory. In fact, Burgin’s name might be somewhere deep in people’s minds—his work, like that of many British Conceptualists fell out of favor until a recent Tate survey of the movement. Now, however, Burgin will have two shows running simultaneously in New York."

By Keiara Carr, The Journal Gazette

 

"Kolkman says she had an idea in mind and tried to match it to an artwork instead. She selected the 2012 painting 'Artist and Muse' by Joe Fig, whose portrait depicts French painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, famous for his images of Parisian can-can dancers, painting a muse. 'I decided to play with levels, where the muse is on the platform, and I have the artist on the bottom, and he’s actually painting,' Kolkman says. 'The more dynamic the artist’s movements are or, the more he paints, the more the muse comes to life.'"

“The studio is where strange magic happens, as much for the artist’s imagination as for the public’s. It’s the conjuring place of new concepts, styles, or forms … On the other hand, as the artist Joe Fig recently told me, it is also ‘a place where mundane tasks and very non-glamorous things go on.’”

"It’s not that Francisco Ugarte’s 'Slideshow' is haunted, but the absence of representational imagery from the four projector works in the dimly lit gallery, indeed, unsettles. Words cannot make sense of the projectors’ incessant chatter. Nonetheless, Ugarte’s strange environment allows us to witness the malleability of light and color through hundreds of manipulated slides."

So it made sense that she was hired to create public art for the renovation of a long-time Seattle dump site—and even more sense that she used trash from the renovation itself to create the art. As ArtNet reports, Shin used 10,000 linear feet of rebar to create something new (and unexpectedly beautiful) at Seattle’s North Transfer Station."

Created with the support of the museum, 'Afar' depicts Biggs’ travels in the Afar Triangle, a geologically unstable but visually arresting desert region at the intersection of Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti, in Africa. This volatile environment of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and intense heat serves as a metaphor for the ongoing political instability of a region in which salt traders, nomadic people and militia vie for scarce natural resources."

"The art of the Southern California painter Helen Lundeberg (1908-1999) is nothing if not clear, and she was nothing if not clear about it: 'My aim, realized or not,' she said in 1942, 'is to calculate, and reconsider, every element in a painting with regard to its function in the whole organization. That, I believe, is the classic attitude.' That perspective—removed and measured, but never cold or stingy—is continuously visible in what is, surprisingly, the first comprehensive survey (it includes 60-plus works) of this underrated and, in some quarters, barely known artist."

Review | Jean Shin: Surface Tension

Review | Jean Shin: Surface Tension

April 7, 2016

By Jonathan Goodman, The Brooklyn Rail

 

"Jean Shin is well known for her large installations consisting of accumulated objects—disparate artifacts such as prescription pill bottles, sports trophies, sweaters, and swathes of fabric—given to her by people in the community where the art environment takes place. Always interested in the exchange between the individual and the mass experience of the urban community, Shin looks at relations generated by contact on the street, and includes the possessions of persons not active in the art world, thereby socializing them within the parameters of the contemporary art arena. For her current show at Cristin Tierney, she has appropriated wooden fencing used at an active construction site on the Upper East Side."

"Shown for the first time in the UK are a selection of Roland Barthes’ little known drawings brought together with three pieces by Victor Burgin. The influential relationship is, however, well known. Not only are several of Burgin’s essays in direct dialogue with Barthes’ writings but there is also a distinct input onto the former as an artist."

"The really special dimension to this book is Joe Fig’s artwork. Fig is known for being an artist whose subjects are often art, artists, and art spaces. In this book, after interviewing and photographing such artists as Ellen Altfest, Byron Kim, Laurie Simmons, Adam Cvijanovic, Tara Donovan, and Roxy Paine (24 artists in all), Fig creates a piece of art inspired by that artist, their studio, and their work."

"Toronto-based Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins won the commission which sought to engage children. The Water Guardians does so both aesthetically and conceptually: with bold colours, cartoon-like forms, and bouncy variegated terrain, the piece nods to the nearby Don River and reminds us that resources such as water are not possessed but merely stewarded for future generations."

By Barbara Pollack, ARTnews

 

"Biggs as well often engages scientists and specialists when creating her lavishly filmed videos, which examine subjects ranging from memory loss and the onset of Alzheimer’s to human endurance in the face of extreme climate conditions. In her new work Written on Wax (2015), she literally put herself in the hot seat by undergoing shock treatments to instill negative associations with one of her favorite activities, horseback riding."

 

 

Victor Burgin in Barthes/Burgin

Victor Burgin in Barthes/Burgin

John Hansard Gallery, Southampton

February 12, 2016

This exhibition places side by side the little known drawings of Roland Barthes, with new projection works by Victor Burgin.

 

Since the 1960s, Victor Burgin has been one of the leading Conceptual artists and theorists from the UK working internationally. Often concerned with architecture, space, the built environment, memory and the means by which memory is physically and technologically constructed, Burgin’s recent digital projection installations can be considered as ‘photographs that move’. These works are not video as such, nor photography, but deliberate, painstaking digital constructions using current technologies.

Peter Campus est une des grandes figures de l’histoire de la vidéo. Il appartient à la génération d’artistes américains qui, dans les années 1970, entreprennent une exploration des possibilités multiples de ce médium. Dans un certain nombre de vidéos célèbres, il se fait acteur visible de l'image et de ses propriétés optiques. Ses installations pionnières mettent en jeu la situation et la perception du spectateur dans des dispositifs qui utilisent de manière subtile le temps réel de la technologie électronique.

Participating artists include Peter Campus, Alois Kronschlaeger, Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins, and Francisco Ugarte.

"In the face of most art’s pretensions to perpetuity, this statement of artistic transience and the explicit rejection of the idea of art as commodity is particularly trenchant. But one should expect no less of Burgin, who first rose to prominence in the late 1960s as one of the originators of conceptual art."

"What Inside the Artist’s Studio reveals about the artists themselves — their childhood, education, domestic life, and career — is refreshingly candid and down-to-earth. But it isn’t just the interviews that make this an intriguing book, and it isn’t just the photographs that, rather than depicting the artists at work, are focused more on the interiors of their studios. Rather, it’s Fig’s creative responses to each studio visit — catalysts for his own artistic practice."

ATOMIC ANTHROPOCENE: Roundtable Discussion with Janet Biggs

September 24, 2015

Leading geoscientists now propose that the Anthropocene began on July 16, 1945, with the Trinity test at Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range in New Mexico. As the Atomic Age and the Anthropocene Age collapse into the singular Atomic Anthropocene, we awaken to find that not only have our futures and present been radically transformed by global warming, so too has our past.

 

Along with a group of scholars, Janet Biggs will participate in a panel that addresses how this "Atomic Anthropocene" era has destabilized our notions of history and agency. Hosted by Clemson University, the discussion will start at 10:15am, September 25th at the local Hyatt Regency in Greenboro, SC.

Suburban Scenes, Poetic Paintings and Apocalyptic Art

Suburban Scenes, Poetic Paintings and Apocalyptic Art

June 20, 2015

By Peter Plagens, Wall Street Journal

 

"The recent paintings of Jorge Tacla (b. 1958), however, are made of oil paint and cold wax on canvas, so the relative shadow in which they’re displayed seems to have something to do with their subject: the dark side of the human condition. As the gallery press materials put it, the paintings depict 'a new architecture that arises in the wake of catastrophe.'

In two big paintings, each 80 inches square, Mr. Tacla presents a vision of urban ruins in variations of dark blue, using a technique lodged somewhere between the scratchiness of Francis Bacon and the existential smearing of Gerhard Richter’s early photo-based paintings."

"As the art market explodes in value and collecting becomes a global treasure hunt, the importance of showing at art fairs has soared, too. Fairs now account for about 40 percent of gallery sales by value, and as collectors flock to destination bazaars in places like Paris, London, New York, Miami and Maastricht in the Netherlands, dealers, museum curators and art-world groupies follow."

Traumas Rise to the Surface in Jorge Tacla’s Textured Paintings

June 4, 2015

By K. Sundberg, Artsy

 

"In 'Hidden Identities,' Jorge Tacla’s second solo exhibition at Cristin Tierney gallery, the artist presents a body of work that pulls the shades of memories into the light. A group of canvases, in blacks, white, blues, and greys, are made with oil paint mixed with materials including cold wax and marble powder to create visceral, distressed surfaces that reflect on emotional and psychological disquiet. These tempestuous large-scale works are paired with delicate pencil-on-paper drawings that read like inspired annotations to the artist’s creative process."

Heart on Canvas: Three Manhattan Shows, Three Politically Edgy Painters

Heart on Canvas: Three Manhattan Shows, Three Politically Edgy Painters

June 3, 2015

By Christian Viveros-Fauné, Village Voice

 

"Jorge Tacla's grisaille paintings of things falling apart (to steal a line from Yeats) confirm the medium's possibilities as an excellent vehicle for humanity's most moving stories. An artist who, like thousands of others in the 1970s and '80s, suffered the topsy-turvy politics of his native Chile, Tacla moved on to a career of painting sublime views of the world's worst nightmares. Among past subjects are Middle East wars, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the 9-11 disaster (he's one of the few contemporary artists to have painted the aftermath of the attack on the twin towers). Tacla never focuses on the violence itself, just on the damage. As a result, his paintings of crumbled buildings juggle themes of destruction, aggression, and the light and shadow that shape fragmentary memory."

In return for the chance to work without distractions and within earshot of the pounding Pacific — there is no cellphone signal, and the house is a half-mile down a dirt road — Mr. Sodi, and Patricia Martín, Casa Wabi’s director, ask residents to organize art projects with local villages."

By Natalie Mortimer, The Drum

 

"At first glance, miniature views of current social realities may appear like child’s play but the exhibition aims to explore dioramas and miniatures as well as our fascination with all things small, both as a technical feat and a psychological relationship....Feel Big Live Small features work by Matthew Albanese, Alice Bartlett and Joe Fig, all of which  bring a range of perspective to the exhibition."

By Becky Chung, The Creators Project

 

Joe Fig: "Ironically working in a miniature scale allows me to easily present a large environment. It allows the viewer a God's eye perspective. There's the sense of voyeurism or of reality TV, Big Brother, or The Truman Show."

"For this exhibit Fig invites viewers into his own world with his "Self Portrait" diorama, which details his personal workplace all the way down to his dog's food bowl. His work is truly a study in intimacy, magnifying a sensation of voyeurism as we snoop the artist's private life."

MoMA Speaks with Joan Snyder

MoMA Speaks with Joan Snyder

May 8, 2014

By Cara Manes, Collection Specialist, Department of Painting and Sculpture
Museum of Modern Art
A new installation in the galleries brings together a diverse group of works from the late 1960s and 1970s, a moment when many artists radically reexamined the medium of painting. It unites a few recently acquired works—including a large unstretched, draped painting by Sam Gilliam, a composition of stitched-together strips of dyed canvas by Al Loving, and a brightly colored floor-work made of spilt and hardened latex by Lynda Benglis—with some veteran artworks from the collection. Organizing these kinds of special installations always provides a fresh opportunity to take a deep and focused look at the collection. Within the rich context of the gallery, the Department of Painting and Sculpture is delighted to present Sweet Cathy’s Song, a painting that New York–based artist Joan Snyder made in 1978 and that has been in MoMA’s collection since 1979. The work is in many ways characteristic of what one might describe as Snyder’s signature style—it is large in scale and brightly colored, its composition is guided by a grid-like structure, and it contains both abstract and narrative elements. Yet it holds a special place within her oeuvre. I was delighted to have had the chance to speak with Snyder to learn why.

Without compromise, Campus straddles realism and abstraction as well as the disciplines of painting, photography, and video. A salient strength of the work is that it does not simply demonstrate a thesis about technologies or claim a priority over other forms of representation. Rather, Campus seems to aver that such complexity is intrinsic to art itself.

Originally shown at Toronto’s Nuit Blanche in 2007, piETa puts a twist on the familiar trope in art history of mother and child by using ET and Yoda to create a contemporary deity. The placement of these modern-day idols in a classical biblical pose, alongside religious symbols from multiple faiths, raises questions about belief systems and the rise of popular culture.

Victor Burgin: A Sense of Place

November 13, 2013

By Gabriel Coxhead, Time Out London

 

"For the past 40 years, Victor Burgin’s art has essentially been about a single subject: the relationship between image and text. During the 1970s and ’80s, this basically meant black-and-white photographs accompanied by words, either overlaid or framed separately. Yet if the format sounds simple, the results are deeply complex and provocative – as shown in his seminal ‘UK76’, the first series seen by the visitor to this extensive survey of the influential English conceptualist, held in the cavernous and atmospheric P3 building."

The central and titular video diptych in the Brooklyn-based, Munich-born artist’s solo show at times veers uncomfortably close to exoticism, with its imagery of Brazilian children riding boats down the Rio Grande and locals decked out like Amazonian scarecrows, but her haunting fusion of spectacular, Romanticism-evoking landscapes and enigmatic, mystical rituals is nevertheless — and appropriately — bewitching. — Benjamin Sutton

Marman and Borins: Strike While the Iron is Hot

Marman and Borins: Strike While the Iron is Hot

September 26, 2013

by Land | Slide, Possible Futures

Strike While the Iron is Hot consists of a formal and spatial intervention in the blacksmith shop. Marman and Borins engage in a process-oriented installation that utilizes painting, sculpture, and architectural expression. Influenced by the normative elements of pre-industrial revolution fabrication, yet with a focus on the attempt to standardize within a functional craft, the artists see the blacksmith shop as an entry point into an investigation of form that dictates a set of precepts. Consequently, they engage in gesture painting - but with restrictions, in the sculptural act of blacksmithing, but with preset patterns as their guide. They place upon themselves an imagined set of actions that metaphorically relate to the idea of fabricating originals within the context of repetitive forms intended for utilitarian purposes.

October 2013

Some motifs recur in Ryan Mosley's paintings: beards, afros, skulls, stages prickly pear cacti, triangles. These seemingly disparate things are assembled into rambunctious scenes that recall paranormal rituals and historical paintings from the 1800s. And yet the five large works in the show looked completely new, owing to this English painter's use of odd techniques and esoteric narratives.

Across the board - or, rather, across the canvases - washy watercolors collided with opaque oil paints. This textural contrast was especially dramatic in Botanical Theatre (2013), in which an orange-colored seated man and a pink-colored belle performing onstage look as if they've stepped out of a Toulouse-Lautrec poster: behind them, standing sinister men in dark suits and stovepipe hats, who might well have inhabited one of Manet's blackest oil paintings. Everywhere, there are prickly pear cacti in plastic hues - expressive figures in their own right, even though they've evolved into abstracted paisley forms.

The skull too, often appears in Mosley's works, serving as a memento mori, but also as a vital element in his visual vocabulary, which includes pyramids among other symbols that allude to the occult. Mosley could be citing theosophy alchemy, Rosicrucianism, or freemasonry. Or he has simply made up his own hermetic system.

In both Delta House Blues (2012) and Thoughts of Man (2013), skulls appear as ghastly, though charming, characters (with big hairdos) in the main narratives, and as huge, semi-architectural forms hidden in the backgrounds. Portholes and afros can double as eye sockets for these camouflaged craniums, and patterned skirts worn by heavily whiskered men correspond to nose holes. Whatever spirits Mosley may be conjuring, he is definitely a bold visionary unafraid to probe the dark mysteries that linger in our world - or in parallel worlds.

"In this series of site-specific installations, entitled Habitat, artist Alois Kronschlaeger blurs the boundaries between museum exhibits and the area from which a viewer observes each exhibit. To create each piece, Kronschlaeger altered 27 constructed habitats, located in the Mammal Hall of the former Grand Rapids Public Museum, by interrupting the artificial landscapes with contemporary architecture."

Modern Painters, BlouinARTINFO.com
by Paul Laster
October 2013

Ten years ago, Mosley was a guard at the National Gallery in London. Today he's one of the most highly acclaimed young painters in the U.K. Making his New York gallery debut with five large, figurative canvases, the innovative Brit reveals his talent for art-historical fusions and gestural mark making, which have made him a darling of the London art press.

All five paintings in "Thoughts of Man" are pure fantasies. Inspired by the canvases of Canaletto, Titan, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, James Ensor, Pierre Bonnard and Philip Guston that he used to observe regularly, Mosley spontaneously layers styles and techniques to make timeless pieces. His traditional process also shows an attention to historical detail - he sizes his canvases with rabbit-skin glue and blends his paints from pigments.

Botanical Theatre (all works 2013), the largest painting on view, depicts a ghostly couple surrounded by surreal catuslike forms and watched by a group of menacing bearded men. The artist's abstract underpainting delicately shows through the surface of the canvas, providing a ground of irregular brushwork that would otherwise be hard to achieve and a map upon which to build the figurative action.

The painting Thoughts of Man offers a man in a harlequin suit balancing a mysterious ball on his arm. He shares a stage with a floating skull sporting an Afro. Meanwhile, Wandering Studio mixes a Sienese landscape with an Afro-topped, one-legged figure smoking a hookah onstage who gazes through a hallucinatory window that's a painting within the painting - an apt metaphor for the comedic, theatrical scenes that Mosley conjures up.

Denis Gardarin, formerly with White Cube London, Sean Kelly and Brent Sikkema, both in New York and LACMA, has now partnered with Chelsea gallerist Cristin Tierney to form Tierney Gardarin Gallery, which will operate in what has been her space on 29th Street. The gallery's roster has included a wide range of emerging and midcareer artists, among them Peter Campus, Joe Fig, Malia Jensen, Alois Kronschlaeger, Marman and Borins, Jean Shin, and Jorge Tacla. "Together we hope to broaden the gallery's international scope and focus on presenting exhibitions that take risks," Tierney says. "A gallery should be an incubator for innovative ideas, not merely an economic mechanism." To which Gardarin adds, "We both have a strong academic background and share a common belief in the primacy of the artist's vision." - AMHS

How do new generations of artists absorb the art of the past? "Concrete Remains: Postwar and Contemporary Art from Brazil," a compact show on view at Chelsea's Tierney Gardarin Gallery (formerly Cristin Tierney), through June 22, is, in one sense, an exploration of this question. It also encapsulates an important area of Latin American art, shedding new light on the ongoing preoccupation of 21st-century Brazilian artists with their nation's major contribution to 20th-century art: Concrete and Neo-Concrete art.

Cristin Tierney Announces Partnership

Cristin Tierney Announces Partnership

May 7, 2013

Cristin Tierney Gallery has announced today the new partnership of gallery founder Cristin Tierney and Denis Gardarin, most recently of White Cube Gallery in London. Under the new partnership, the gallery will be renamed Tierney Gardarin Gallery, effective immediately. It will remain in the Chelsea art district of New York City at 546 West 29th Street.

Established in 2010 by Cristin Tierney, the Cristin Tierney Gallery was founded with a commitment to artist development, collection advisory services, and arts education. Under the new partnership, Tierney Gardarin Gallery will focus on creating an environment that moves beyond the white box model, exploring critical theory and art historical themes. Through the partnership, and with the collaboration of guest curators, Tierney Gardarin Gallery aims to present museum quality exhibitions by working with mid-career artists and under-recognized contemporary art movements.

The gallery’s roster is comprised of a diverse range of emerging and mid-career artists, including but not limited to, Peter Campus, Joe Fig, Malia Jensen, Alois Kronschlaeger, Marman and Borins, Jean Shin, and Jorge Tacla. The estate of Geraldo de Barros and the artist Ryan Mosley will be added to the gallery’s roster, and Mosley will have his first solo New York exhibition at the gallery opening on June 27, 2013.

So, what better way to get to know an artist than to see him or her inside their own personal studio. This was exactly the thought of Brooklyn-based artist Joe Fig, and so he developed a series of miniature dioramas, entitled Inside the Painter’s Studio, that show artists at work in their own studios."

Realigning our Sight: An Interview with MK Guth

December 19, 2012

By Sarah Margolis-Pineo, Bad at Sports

 

"Guth is the maestra of the send-off. At the root of her work is a central line of inquiry--a rhizome-like thread that binds individual, to object, to universe--generating meaning from what is unacknowledged, unarticulated, or unknown."

Melanie Baker: Feast

May 6, 2011

Feast, by Brooklyn-based artist, Melanie Baker will be on view from May 6 until June 18, 2011. Human form takes a back seat to a series of still lifes in the tradition of the seventeenth century vanitas. Baker makes use of the same compositional mastery that defined her previous work: a radical fragmenting of her subjects, where gestures, expressions and attributes are isolated and magnified to great effect.

March 3, 2011

New Paintings by Joe Fig alludes to the art historical moment during which the old guard of painting was overtaken by the pioneers of modernism.

Measuring fifteen feet high and spanning a length of sixty-five feet, Kronschlaeger has combined elements of biomorphic and geometric abstraction to create a giant stalactite composed entirely of wire mesh, wood and poured paint. Impressive in scale and subtle in its aesthetics, this installation hovers halfway between an Alpine mountain range and a Sol LeWitt sculpture.

Peter Campus: Calling for Shantih

Peter Campus: Calling for Shantih

October 28, 2010

Cristin Tierney is thrilled to announce our inaugural exhibition of new work by the acclaimed artist, Peter Campus. Calling for Shantih is a seven-screen installation of video landscapes. Campus's new pieces are quiet meditations on the passage of time and humanity's place in the natural world. An unrepentant formalist, Campus' s manipulation of color and form belies a sophisticated sensibility comparable to that of historic figures such as Cézanne and Corot. But his use of cutting edge technology gives these videos a freshness that positions the work squarely in the twenty first century. Slow and deliberate in movement, sound, and shifts of light, these pieces exert a hypnotic effect upon the viewer. Floating somewhere between expressionist painting and pixilated animation, this new body of work serves to remind us of why Campus is considered a seminal figure in the history of video and new media art.

By Grant Butler, The Oregonian

 

"There may be no more potent example of how mythology influences Guth's art than her current work, "Ties of Protection and Safekeeping," a massive braid of artificial golden hair displayed as part of the prestigious Whitney Biennial in New York City earlier this month. The work is rooted in the Brothers Grimm story of Rapunzel, a young girl held captive in a tower who eventually finds freedom through her long hair."

"In the Silver Room MK Guth braided artificial blond hair and red fabric strips (scribbled with visitors' comments about what they want to protect) into Rapunzel-like swags. The Armory itself, exposing its wood-paneled rooms and military decor to live performance art, may have been this biennial's best surprise."

"The first time I read Camera Lucida I was on the train from Cusco to Machu Picchu, Peru, which travels alongside the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in the Andes. At that moment, I was interested in photography's role in objectifying a ruin and objectifying (a) people. In my rereading with Burgin, I found myself not only questioning my role but also reconsidering the phenomenology of my interpretation."

If a potential rider conducts a simple aesthetic exchange, RSDS will take him or her where she wants to go: wherever there is."

"Red Shoe Delivery Service is the name of a rolling project/arhive, that grows and mutates and yet orbits around a central theme and practice that was first seen in public in 2003 in New York. A collaboration of three artists, MK Guth, Molly Dilworth and Cris Moss, use a variety of techniques practical, conceptual and virtual to make good the emotional promise suggested by the myth of Dorothy's ruby slippers that could instantly deliver a person to home, and therefore metaphorically to resolution, completeness, ease."

"Victor Burgin's recent video, The Little House, 2005, points out that even in earlier eras design was linked to everything from natural urges and social constructs to sexual desire to the creation of narrative."

"The veteran English Conceptualist Victor Burgin has more than 35 years of art and writing to his name, so it is dangerous to generalize about his achievement. Still, the video 'The Little House,' in his 11th gallery show in New York, may be one of his best efforts."

The power of heeling

April 26, 2005

By David Baldwin, METROLIFE

 

"A van pulls up beside you, and someone inside brandishing a camcorder asks you to put on some red shoes and get in the back. Despite the ominous nature of the request, don't run away screaming if this happens to you in Nottingham this weekend: it's all in the aid of launching this year's nottdance festival and with a click of the heels."

"Lundeberg was fascinated by the perceptual extremes of microcosms and macrocosms. The insistent oddity of her painted aerial views seems intended to underscore the purely illusory nature of any system that purports to control or discipline nature. Elsewhere she uses architecture as a kind of framing device for the contemplation of vastness."

"With his exhibitions of paintings by southern California modernists Karl Benjamin, Lorser Feitelson, and, currently, Helen Lundeberg, Stern is attempting to reacquaint the city with its own artistic history, which continues to be written by its growing community of internationally acclaimed artists."

"Occasionally it seems the form of a book speaks more of its overall intention than form might ordinarily imply. There is a subtlety of meaning to be derived from artist/theorist Victor Burgin’s new work on his travels, Some Cities, a 223 page book with 175 black and white photographic illustrations in paperback. It is actually a photographic artists’ book with text."

"Struggling to make a living during the Depression, Lundeberg landed commissions for several government funded murals and executed them in keeping with the notion that public art should deliver a simple message in a representational style. One of about 200 artists who created WPA murals in California from 1935 to 1943, she was delighted to have a job -- even if it took her away from her independent work."

"Victor Burgin has crossed the Atlantic so many times in the past 40 years that the question of who has rightful national ownership of him is surely moot. Yet it still seems amusing that it has taken an American, the Arnolfini's Catsou Roberts, to revive him in England."

"The Arnolfini's 'Listen to Britain'--a self-described monographic exhibition--succeeds despite a meagre budget while falling not entirely outside the majestic shadow of Burgin's retrospective."

"This retrospective makes clear that Burgin is resolutely flexible in the ways he deals formally with conceptual issues that were first fixed upon in his early work and still inform his work today."

"In Victor Burgin's video installation Nietzsche's Paris , the melancholy of the excluded party in a love triangle pervades a garden of learning."

"In counterpoint to Ed Soja's recent talk in London, in which he suggested that 'for the first time in 150 years people are thinking about space with the same expectation of insight as with time and history', Victor Burgin's presentation at the Architectural Association (AA) last week proposed that 'time has [recently] had comparatively little attention'."

"Some Cities is an elliptical record of certain stops on Burgin's journey from Sheffield to Santa Cruz--'my aim is to recall some traces some cities have left in me,' he says."

"What I would like to see now, though, is going to be much harder to get. I would like to see the creation of a critical and curatorial climate in which long-term critical projects in art can be sustained and flourish. I would like to see novelty and 'mediability' displaced from their present positions as paramount aesthetic values. I would like to see just a little less of museums being led by the nose by fashion. This is even more politically important now that being 'right on' is becoming chic."

"Burgin, mindful of the great debates concerning Art and Art Theory of the early Soviet Revolutionary period, thought it the right time to revive the controversy."

"For anyone concerend with how art deals with the representation of women and sexuality, how art can subvert normal ideology Burgin's work remains crucuial. Here as in all his best work he is neither hectoring nor obfuscating: he presents us with certain structures, certain related fragments, the putting together of which is at once educational and satisfying."

"Burgin sets out to reveal the codes and structures of publicity by employing the mechanics of the system as a 'emthod of explanation' for the way in which our society becomes ever more fragmented and pointless."
