Michelle Segre: Sectional Planes and Driftloaves

 

The Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery of the University of the Arts is pleased to present the Philadelphia one-person premier of New York sculptor Michelle Segre.

 

Segre’s organic works are an eclectic amalgam of new age naturalism joined with Arte Povera. In her early work, she constructed large-scale naturalistic enlargements of mushrooms and of bones, perhaps sharing a kinship with Nancy Graves or Roxy Paine. These conceptual structures, however, were only the starting point; she now creates   monoliths of assembled allusions, chimeras of consciousness, exploring various biomorphic iconographies, mycelia exploding into open fiber or wire webs. Space is punctuated and punctured, wire is used as line, threads connect objects suspended in space. She works with illusion and radically eclectic materials: papier mậché, driftwood, loaves of bread, mold, fungus – references that spiral outward into the world with nonlinear, psychedelic abandon. We notice analogies to Native American God’s Eyes and macramé, her fiberworks like Faith Wilding and Annette Messanger. Her use of bright color harks back to Yves Klein and forward to Franz West. Although this color might initially seem playful, a closer examination points to issues of life, death and transcendence: ways of sustaining a soulful artistic practice.

Sight Reading: Photography and the Legible World at The Morgan Library & Museum

February 9 - May 30, 2016

This exhibition explores the history of the medium as a lucid, literate—but not always literal—tool of persuasion. A collaboration with the George Eastman Museum, the show features more than eighty works from the 1840s to the present and reveals the many ways the camera can transmit not only the outward appearance of its subject but also narratives, arguments, and ideas. Drawn chiefly from the Eastman Museum’s rich holdings, and supplemented by works from the Morgan and a private collector, this exhibition features work by William Henry Fox Talbot, Eadweard Muybridge, John Heartfield, Lewis Hine, John Baldessari, Sophie Calle, Bernd and Hilla Becher, and Thomas Barrow, among many others.

 

Sight Reading is co-organized by the Morgan Library & Museum and the George Eastman Museum, Rochester. Sight Reading: Photography and the Legible World will be on view at the George Eastman Museum June 18 - September 18, 2016.

Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age will be the first exhibition to tell the story of painting’s adaptation, absorption and transformation of information technologies in Western Europe and the United States since the 1960s. Its historical starting point in Pop Art and Nouveau Réalisme’s programmatic appropriation and re-contextualization of commercial imagery precedes the advent of digitalization and the Internet by some thirty years. 

 

Featuring over 230 works by 107 artists, Painting 2.0 is one of the largest and most comprehensive exhibitions of contemporary painting to be held by a major museum in recent years.

GHOSTING | Galerie EIGEN + ART Leipzig

November 7 - December 19, 2015

The first solo exhibition of Despina Stokou in the spaces of the Galerie EIGEN + ART Leipzig bears the title Ghosting. The works on display tie in with earlier works by the artist in which she combines text, painting, and collage. Her works are often presented as installations, which heightens the object-like character and the forcefulness of the canvases. While in terms of content the artist has been dealing for some time with the phenomenon of the World Wide Web and the processing of information that is stored and circulated in it, her new works are primarily concerned with the universal semiotic language of emoji, with pictographic symbols that are above all used in digital communication. In doing so, the artists once again puts her finger on and feels out the phenomena of dealing with language and digital media in this day and age. 

 

A catalogue will be published at MMKoehn Verlag with a text by Leonie Pfennig.

Signed limited exhibtion print of Karl Wirsum, Untitled (study for Baseball Girl, 1964), 1964, produced by Exhibition A. 

 

A founding member of the notorious Chicago collective, The Hairy Who, Karl Wirsum’s style is defined by a graphic sensibility electrified with mordantly humorous imagery and color influenced by comic books, popular icons, Chicago blues, Japanese prints, and Mesoamerican pottery. An erotic, iconic slice of Americana and one of his most captivating characters, Baseball Girl is the embodiment of Wirsum’s distinct visual language. The artist has mounted three solo exhibitions with Derek Eller Gallery (New York), the most recent of which is currently on view through Saturday, October 17.

This Takes Place Close By

September 24 - 27, 2015

This Takes Place Close By: an opera by thingNY

This Takes Place Close By is a new opera, written collaboratively by the music ensemble thingNY, exploring the fractured world that follows in the wake of a devastating storm. The audience enters the large, dark Knockdown Center, minimally set with rubbish and flickers of light. A soundscape of voices, instruments and electronics from twenty different sound sources imbues the space with a desolate mood. Listeners travel around the space experiencing different perspectives on the songs and stories of six characters as they cope with the sporadic destructiveness of nature.

Hans Ulrich Obrist: In Conversation with the Hairy Who Featuring Artists Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, and Karl Wirsum at EXPO Chicago

Saturday, September 19, 2015

Presented in partnership with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), /Dialogues offers panel discussions, conversations and provocative artistic discourse with leading artists, curators, designers and arts professionals on the current issues that engage them. 

 

Internationally renowned curator and co-director of the Serpentine Galleries in London, Hans Ulrich Obrist will speak with members of the legendary Hairy Who, a group of young, eccentric artists that began working in the 1960s after meeting at SAIC. Now categorized into a larger group known as the Chicago Imagists—known for thriving outside of New York’s Pop Art scene—this panel anticipates the fifty-year anniversary of their first Hairy Who exhibition at the Hyde Park Art Center in 1966, examining its importance in art history in Chicago and beyond. The voices of three Hairy Who members working today—Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, and Karl Wirsum—will speak alongside Obrist on the impact and significance of the group’s work in a contemporary context.

Frozen Period | Lynden Sculpture Garden, Milwaukee, WI

June 14, 2015 - August 23, 2015

In a series of extended residencies at the Lynden Sculpture Garden beginning in the summer of 2013, Dan Torop made photographs on the grounds which integrate an historical text--Meriwether Lewis’s June 14, 1805 diary entry describing a day and night in the environs of the Great Falls of the Missouri River--with present day visual explorations. Mindful of ecologist Aldo Leopold's description of a nearby landscape, Torop responded to the passage of seasons, animals, and objects across the site, sometimes intervening, always observing.

 

Frozen Period refers to both a season and an historical epoch. Torop created many photographs during the winter of 2014, when the frigid grounds became an unfamiliar and difficult terrain. The harsh weather, the darkness, and the strict geographic limits of the project became important constraints in which it flourished. But all of the work Torop created was informed by a sense of the "frozen period," the time between the death of the sculpture garden's owner and creator, Peg Bradley, in 1978, and its opening to the public in 2010. During his months at Lynden, Torop sought out the interstitial, private times--early mornings, late evenings, nights--as ideal times to make work.

Traveling from the RISD Museum and curated by Dan Nadel, Matthew Marks is pleased to present What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art, 1960 to Present, the next exhibition in his three 22nd Street galleries. 

The Chicago-based Hairy Who exhibited together from 1966 to 1969. Its members were Jim Falconer, Art Green, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Suellen Rocca, and Karl Wirsum.

Art Basel Parcours, Basel, Switzerland

June 18 - 21, 2015

The 2015 edition of Parcours will be sited in the historical center of Basel around the city's iconic cathedral, infiltrating key locations such as the Museum of Culture, the Natural History Museum, the Town Hall and the Münsterplatz itself. Parcours looks to engage with Basel’s past and present by weaving artistic interventions into the fabric of the specific location each edition inhabits. Presented on stone walls throughout the Parcours area will be Alyson Shotz’s ‘Imaginary Sculptures’ (2014 – 2015). As six panels of text on enamel, these signs are initially experienced as ordinary street signs. However, each panel contains a short text describing an imagined sculpture, using language to conjure forms in the mind of the viewer, demonstrating the notion that every work of art exists in the imagination, first in the mind of the artist and later in the memory of the viewer.

 

23 sitespecific artworks by internationally renowned as well as emerging artists will be featured, the biggest selection to date, including works by Alexandra Bachzetsis, Davide Balula, Adriano Costa, Alicia Framis, Piero Golia, Tobias Kaspar, Alicja Kwade, Nate Lowman, Michaela Meise, Jonathan Monk, Vik Muniz, Ciprian Mureşan, Peter Regli, David Renggli, Ugo Rondinone, Yves Scherer, Lara Schnitger, Alyson Shotz, Daniel Silver, Philippe Thomas, Blair Thurman and Francisco Tropa.

Ametria | Benaki Museum

June 12 - October 11, 2015

AMETRIA is the privilege of disproportion, of excess, the rejection of an overall vision, the error that turns out to be right. Out of the meeting of the Benaki Museum and the DESTE Foundation, works and objects become proofs of an impulse that, as a precise and determinate entity, takes part in the evolution of thought.

 

The exhibition includes, Aurel Schmidt, Barnaby Furnas, Dominic McGill, Judith Bernstein, Matthew Richie, Maurizio Cattelan, Paul Chan, Scott Campbell, Theodoros Poulakis, Urs Fischer, Wes Lang, among others. 

 

AMETRIA is organized by the DESTE Foundation in collaboration with the Benaki Museum. The collaboration between the two institutions was initiated in 2014 and, through a series of solo and group contemporary art exhibitions hosted at the Benaki Museum, aims to promote new and radical developments in contemporary art practice and inspire novel curatorial approaches.

Intersections 5 | Contemporary Art Projects at The Phillips

May 28 - October 25, 2015

The Phillips Collection celebrates the fifth anniversary of Intersections, which since 2009 has presented the work of 21 artists—10 men and 11 women—from the US and abroad. Each artist engaged the museum’s collection and architecture in different ways, creating diverse projects—both aesthetically and conceptually—and employing various media and approaches from wall-drawing, rubber-painting, bicycle spoke sculpture, and digital photography to video projection and yarn installation. This exhibition presents works by Intersections artists that have been acquired to date, both pieces that were featured in past installations and new works that are reminiscent or emblematic of the projects. Most importantly, the anniversary exhibition is a celebration of the Phillips’s mission to actively collect and display contemporary art.

Paul J. Cronin Memorial Lecture | deCordova Sculpture Park, and Museum, Lincoln, MA

April 16, 2015

 

Fascinated by the physics of the natural world, sculptor Alyson Shotz makes work that examines phenomena that are often considered inscrutable–gravity, light, space, and time. Using synthetic materials such as glass beads, stainless steel, and mirrors, Shotz renders mathematical and molecular structures on a monumental scale. Her sculptures are intricate, ethereal and responsive to a site’s conditions. Changes in light, time of day, and viewing angle, affect the presence of her work.

Often employing nontraditional materials such as glass beads, linen thread, stainless-steel filaments, and welded aluminum to create large-scale abstract sculptures, Shotz expands upon conventional notions of sculptural space and form.

 

Alyson Shotz: Force of Nature marks the artist’s most ambitious show to date. More than fifty works in various mediums are on view throughout the museum, representing the range of Shotz’s artistic output. The exhibition includes a monumental sculptural installation; a newly created Möbius strip–inspired sculpture commissioned by the museum for its collection; a site-specific, fifty-foot volumetric wall drawing; and a collaborative animation, as well as digital and traditional prints, photographs, and ceramics.

What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art, 1960 to the Present | RISD Museum

September 19, 2014 – January 4, 2015

 

What Nerve! Alternative Figures in American Art, 1960 to the Present proposes an alternate history of figurative painting, sculpture, and vernacular image-making from 1960 to the present that has been largely overlooked and undervalued. At the heart of What Nerve! are four mini-exhibitions based on crucial shows, spaces, and groups in Chicago (the Hairy Who), San Francisco (Funk), Ann Arbor (Destroy All Monsters), and Providence (Forcefield)—places outside the artistic focal point of New York. These moments are linked together by six influential or intersecting artists: H. C. Westermann, Jack Kirby, William Copley, Christina Ramberg, Gary Panter, and Elizabeth Murray.
