Gabriel Sierra at Renaissance Society May 3rd - June 28th
Posted 5/19/15

Gabriel Sierra creates structures of relation, platforms where humans, architecture, and paper media collaborate on the creation of artworks. His current exhibition at the Renaissance Society—the first solo exhibition in the United States for the Bogotá-based artist—is a scatter piece of sculptures, rules, and relationships in which 14 constructions, mostly in modernistically white plywood, lie on the gallery floor. They look at first like a kind of stern minimalism in the Ren&rsqu... [more]

By S. Nicole Lane Ta Prohm Trees, Gallery 2, Nancy Lu Rosenheim “I sat there, my heart beating fast, shaken by what had happened.

by
at Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) May 9th - October 4th
Posted 5/12/15

Stratospheres of experience have been described in art since the early narratives of heaven and earth. Since Biblical cosmology, our understanding of time and place has been oriented according to predetermined concepts of measure—even time is an invented unit. But how do we measure the intangible? In a system where contemporary art is increasingly judged by scale, how do we quantify the poetics of experience? Robert Morris, Portal, 1964. Collection of the MCA Chicago, gift of Mrs. Robert...

An Insider's Tip for Outsider Art: Lonnie Holley at Frieze Focus   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 5/11/15

Lonnie Holley can find layers of history and meaning in the simplest of things, often ones that have been discarded by the rest of us. His sculptures, direct descendants of the oldest forms of African American sculpture, are constructed by combining objects into narrative artworks that commemorate places, people, and events. Most of Holley’s works are additionally given clever and sometimes long-winded titles like: Climbing to Paint Your Pane, You Forgot to Give Me Power, or Keeping It Freezing: The... [more]
