ArtSlant - Openings & events http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/show en-us 40 Group Show - Tel-Aviv Museum of Art - March 30th 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">The Julia Stoschek Collection was established in 2007 and is located in D&uuml;esseldorf, Germany. In the short period that has elapsed since its foundation, it has become one of the most important private collections of time-based media art. The collection includes film, video, sculpture, photography, performance, and installation art; its unique character, however, is shaped by hundreds of video works dating from the beginnings of video art in the late 1960s to the present.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition will be presented in the Lilly &amp; Yoel Moshe Elstein Multi-Purpose Gallery, and will constitute the largest presentation of time-based, projected works at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The exhibition title is borrowed from Adrian Paci's 2004 work Turn On, allowing multiple, ambiguous associations with actions ranging from switching on, operating, and lighting to igniting, provoking, and titillating. <br /> <br /> As a whole, the collection centers contemporaneity as an active engagement with the here and now. True to this emphasis, this exhibition focuses on the contemporary part of the collection. The works featured in "Turn On" were created in the last decade, in which technology-based media have developed at a dizzying speed. This is reflected in an astonishing variety of media-based art, showcased in the exhibition via 22 works by 16 artists. Their diverse cultural backgrounds, but also their living and working environments in Europe and the United States inform this variety of artistic means and artistic concerns. <br /> These range from performative and theatrical elements in the works by Marina Abramović, Monica Bonvicini, Christoph Schlingensief, Klara Lid&eacute;n and Adrian Paci to different means of narration. There is, for example, the documentary manner of Johanna Billing&rsquo;s observation of group dynamics at an ATTAC meeting in Stockholm. Andro Wekua&rsquo;s work is a digital neo-surrealistic piece and a spooky, biographically inspired visual narration. A series of edited internet-footage highlights Seth Price&rsquo;s narrative monologue on painting. Other uses of found footage include neorealismo and nouvelle vague film classics in Bonvicini&rsquo;s works, or Sturtevant&rsquo;s way of doubling media images from television and advertising. There are aspects of transformation, such as Mathilde ter Heijne&rsquo;s provocative change from her puppet self into a suicide bomber, or Jesper Just&rsquo;s dramatized shifts of filmic space. Many of the works relate to animation in all meanings of the word: Ed Atkins&rsquo; HD-animated, poetic avatars as alter egos in a fragmented, studio-inspired world, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg&rsquo;s animated and orchestrated manic puppetry on clerical sexual abuse, as well as Paul Chan&rsquo;s early computer animation to recreate a Henry Darger-inspired visual world full of art historical references<br /> More than half of the artists featured in the exhibition are women, perhaps reflecting the fact that female artists have been active in the field of video art right from the beginning. This female presence introduces into the exhibition aspects concerning gender, sexuality, and female identity, while accentuating the existential questions underlying the works in the exhibition as a whole. Implicit subtexts of power struggles &ndash; between the sexes, between the individual and society, and between different creative traditions &ndash; are present throughout, resulting in an exhibition that is fast-paced and contemplative, seductive and reflective. <br /> The works will be displayed as installations that relate to the museum space as a sculptural sphere, presenting the video projections as distinct artistic experiences composed of image, movement, sound, space, and time. They present and reflect incommensurability and simultaneity as characteristics of our time, as well as revealing a museum space that accommodates itself to the unique qualities of the projected medium.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: right;">אוסף יוליה שטושק נוסד ב-2007 וממוקם בדיסלדורף, גרמניה. בשנות קיומו המעטות הוא הפך לאוסף הפרטי המשמעותי ביותר באירופה בתחום אמנות תלוית זמן: וידאו ואמנות מדיה לסוגיה. האוסף מכיל גם עבודות פיסול, צילום, מיצג ומיצב אבל עיקר ייחודו במאות עבודות הווידאו מסוף שנות השישים ועד היום. <br /> התערוכה מתמקדת בחלקו העכשווי של האוסף: מלבד שתי עבודות מ-1998, כל האחרות נוצרו במהלך העשור וחצי האחרונים, כלומר, במאה העשרים-ואחת. למרות טווח הזמן הקצר שבו נוצרו, משקפות העבודות דורות שונים של עשייה, כמתבקש ממדיום המתפתח בקצב מסחרר ומבוסס על חידושי הטכנולוגיה. עם זאת, העבודות כולן מקיימות קשר מודע וחסר מנוחה עם מדיומים ועם תחומי יצירה אחרים: מיצג, קולנוע, ציור, פיסול, אנימציה, אינטרנט. <br /> 22 העבודות המוצגות בתערוכה נוצרו על ידי 16 אמנים החיים ופועלים באירופה ובארה"ב, ילידי ארצות שונות ובני דורות שונים. רובם אמנים שהווידאו הוא תחום פעולתם העיקרי, עבור אחדים הווידאו הוא מדיום נוסף בשורה של אמצעים שאיתם הם יוצרים. יותר ממחציתם נשים. נוכחותן המורגשת של האמניות בתערוכה משקפת את ריבוי הנשים האמניות הפועלות בתחום הווידאו - מדיום צעיר יחסית ולפיכך נטול מסורת גברית מכבידה מדי. היא מציפה את התערוכה בהיבטים הקשורים במגדר, מיניות וזהות נשית, מחדדת את השאלות הקיומיות בבסיס העבודות ומעלה אל פני השטח את התת-טקסט המובלע בהן בכל הקשור במאבקי כוח &ndash; בין המינים, בין פרט לחברה, בין מסורות יצירה. <br /> חלק מהעבודות &ndash; כמו אלה של מרינה אברמוביץ, מוניקה בונוויצ'יני, קלרה לידן, אדריאן פאצ'י, קרן ציטר וכריסטוף שלינגנזיף - מנכיחות מרכיבים תיאטרליים או פרפורמטיביים. עבודות אחרות מציגות טווח רחב של דרכים לספר סיפור: יוהנה בילינג, למשל, וכן מתילדה טר היינה, עושות שימוש במאפיינים של סרטים תיעודיים, אנדרו וקואה מייצר סרט סוריאליסטי דיגיטלי בעל אווירה מסתורית ואילו יספר יוסט מציע מבט קולנועי. סוגים שונים של אנימציה מופיעים בסרטיהם של פול צ'אן, נטלי דז'ורברג &amp; והנס ברג, הלן מרטן, אד אטקינס. <br /> העבודות תוצבנה כמיצבים הלוקחים בחשבון את חלל המוזיאון כמרחב פיסולי, ואת הקרנת הווידאו כחוויה אמנותית טוטאלית המכילה דימוי, תנועה, קול, חלל וזמן. משך הזמן של העבודות נע בין דקה וחצי לבין 38 דקות, משך הצפייה המצטבר של העבודות הוא 14 שעות. כל עבודה מוקרנת, מוצבת ומוצגת בהתאם למתבקש, ולפיכך התערוכה מייצגת גם את האופן שבו הקובייה הלבנה המוזיאלית נדרשת להתאים עצמה לתכונות ולאפיונים של המדיום המוקרן. <br /> התערוכה תוצג בגלריה לילי אלשטיין, ותהווה את התערוכה הגדולה ביותר במוזיאון המוקדשת לעבודות מוקרנות, תלויות-זמן. שמה של התערוכה לקוח מעבודתו של אדריאן פאצ'י, מ-2004 ,Turn On, שכותרתה הושאלה לכותרת התערוכה. הכותרת נשארה באנגלית ללא תרגום בין השאר כדי לשמור על העמימות ועל ריבוי המשמעויות העולים מהשם: להדליק, להפעיל, להאיר, להצית, לגרות.</p> <p style="text-align: right;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: right;"><strong>16 האמנים המוצגים בתערוכה:</strong> מרינה אברמוביץ', אד אטקינס, מוניקה בונוויצ'יני, ג'ואנה בילינג, נטלי דז'ורברג, אנדרו וקואה, מתילד טר היין, יספר יוסט, קלרה לידן, הלן מרטן, אליין סטורטיוונט, אדריאן פאצ'י, סת' פרייס, פול צ'אן, קרן ציטר, כריסטוף שלינגנזיף.</p> Tue, 17 Mar 2015 18:01:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Pietro da Cortona, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Nicolas Poussin, Francesco Borromini, Guido Reni, Giovan Francesco Barbieri, Simon Vouet - Museo del Corso - April 1st 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">From the 1st April to the 26th July 2015 the <strong>Fondazione Roma Museo-Palazzo Cipolla</strong> will present an ambitious cultural operation, mainly driven by the exhibition entitled <em>Barocco a Roma. La meraviglia delle arti</em> (Baroque in Rome. The Wonder of the Arts). Like the metaphorical &lsquo;Barberini Sun&rsquo; the exhibition is in the middle of an original &lsquo;heliocentric system&rsquo;, where the rays are represented by a rich series of satellite events and projects held in some of the main Baroque sites in Rome. <br /> <br /> The hub of the operation, established by the determination of the Chairman of Fondazione Roma, Professor Emmanuele F. M. Emanuele, is Fondazione Roma-Arte-Musei that has brought together numerous public, private and ecclesiastical institutions which, for the occasion, will cooperate with the exhibition <em>Barocco a Roma. La meraviglia delle arti</em> by offering a series of correlated <strong>satellite events</strong>: exclusive tours (the Vatican Museums) special visits to places which are usually closed to the public (Saint Ives at the Sapienza complex, Church of Saints Luca and Martina and the Chapel of the Magi in the Collegio di Propaganda Fide), thematic tours (Oratory of Saint Phillip Neri, Galleria Doria Pamphilj and Palazzo Colonna), investigative exhibitions (Museo di Roma-Palazzo Braschi, Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia and the Archivio di Stato (State Archives), Baroque itineraries (Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica-Palazzo Barberini, Musei Capitoline Picture Gallery), study days, conferences, concerts and fetes. <br /> <br /> The exhibition presents several <strong>unpublished works</strong> such as the drawing referable to Ciro Ferri drawn from frescoes by Pietro da Cortona for Palazzo Pamphilj in Piazza Navona and other pieces which have never been exhibited in Italy, amongst which the so-called Counter-Project for the colonnade on Saint Peter&rsquo;s Square by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Visitors may also admire Bernini&rsquo;s sketches for the statutes on Ponte Sant&rsquo;Angelo and the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa (belonging to the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg); the valuable tapestry The infant Moses trampling on the Pharaoh&rsquo;s crown on cardboard by Nicolas Poussin (from the Mobilier National in Paris), as well as designs by Francesco Borromini and Pietro da Cortona. The presentation to the public of the musician angles by Giovanni Lanfranco (works that survived the fire in the Church of the Capuchins in the nineteenth century), which have been recently restored owing to Fondazione Roma-Arte-Musei, will be an exceptional event.<br /> <br /> Other masterpieces which have been exclusively lent to the exhibition in Palazzo Cipolla are: Portrait of Costanza Bonarelli by Bernini; Atalanta and Hippomenes by Guido Reni (Museo di Capodimonte); The triumph of Baccus by Pietro da Cortona (Musei Capitolini); Saint Mary Magdalene penitent by Giovan Francesco Barbieri known as Il Guercino (Vatican Museums) and Time Vanquished by Love and Beauty by Simon Vouet (Museo Nacional del Prado).<br /> <br /> The exhibition displays other important loans granted by the world&rsquo;s most prestigious museums such as the Louvre Museum and the Mobilier national et des manufactures des Gobelins in Paris, the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Albertina Museum in Vienna, the Museo Nacional del Prado and the Palacio Real in Madrid, the Staatliche Museen in Berlin, the Victoria &amp; Albert Museum in London, the Vatican Museums, the Fabbrica di San Pietro and the Vatican Library, the Polo Museale della Citt&agrave; di Roma (National Gallery of Ancient Art in Palazzo Barberini, the National Gallery of Ancient Art in Palazzo Corsini, the Galleria Borghese and the Galleria Spada), the Capitoline Museums, the Museo di Roma in Palazzo Braschi, Palazzo Chigi in Ariccia, the Uffizi Gallery and the Bargello National Museum in Florence and the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte in Naples.<br /> <br /> The exhibition, curated by Maria Grazia Bernardini e Marco Bussagli with the contribution of a prestigious Scientific Committee (Anna Coliva, Marcello Fagiolo, Christoph L. Frommel, Anna Lo Bianco, Eugenio Lo sardo, St&eacute;phane Loire, Antonio Paolucci, Francesco Petrucci, Pierre Rosenberg, Sebastiano Sch&uuml;tze, Maria Serlupi Crescenzi, Rossella Vodret, Alessandro Zuccari) has been promoted by Fondazione Roma and organised by Fondazione Roma-Arte-Musei.<br /> <br /> The exhibition &lsquo;Baroque in Rome: the Wonder of the Arts&rsquo; together with the related satellite events offer the public the chance to become &lsquo;spectators&rsquo; and relive the aesthetical experience and the manifold sensations emanated from the Baroque &lsquo;stage&rsquo; of what has be defined the &lsquo;Great Theatre of the World&rsquo;, in one word Rome.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Dal 1 aprile al 26 luglio 2015 la <strong>Fondazione Roma Museo-Palazzo Cipolla </strong>presenta una ambiziosa operazione culturale che ha il suo principale centro propulsore nella mostra <em><strong>Barocco a Roma. La meraviglia delle arti</strong></em>. Come nell&rsquo;immagine metaforica del &laquo;sole barberiniano&raquo;, infatti, l&rsquo;evento espositivo si colloca nel mezzo di un originale &laquo;sistema eliocentrico&raquo;, i cui raggi sono rappresentati da una ricca serie di eventi e iniziative satellite, presso alcuni tra i principali siti barocchi della citt&agrave;.

Si possono ammirare anche i bozzetti del Bernini per le statue di ponte Sant&rsquo;Angelo e per l&rsquo;<em>Estasi di Santa Teresa </em>(provenienti dall&rsquo;Hermitage di San Pietroburgo); il prezioso arazzo <em>Mos&egrave; fanciullo calpesta la corona del faraone </em>su cartone di Nicolas Poussin (proveniente dal Mobilier National di Parigi) nonch&eacute; disegni progettuali di Francesco Borromini e Pietro da Cortona. Un evento straordinario sar&agrave; la presentazione al pubblico degli <em>Angeli musici</em> di Giovanni Lanfranco (opere sopravvissute all&rsquo;incendio ottocentesco della Chiesa dei Cappuccini a Roma) recentemente restaurati grazie alla Fondazione Roma-Arte-Musei. Altri capolavori esclusivamente prestati alla mostra di Palazzo Cipolla sono: <em>Ritratto di Costanza Bonarelli </em>del Bernini, <em>Atalanta e Ippomene </em>di Guido Reni (Museo di Capodimonte), Trionfo di Bacco di Pietro da Cortona (Musei Capitolini), <em>Santa Maria Maddalena penitente </em>di Giovan Francesco Barbieri detto il Guercino (Musei Vaticani), <em>Il Tempo vinto dall&rsquo;Amore e dalla Bellezza</em> di Simon Vouet (Museo Nacional del Prado). <br /> L&rsquo;esposizione vanta ulteriori e importanti prestiti concessi dai pi&ugrave; prestigiosi musei del mondo, tra cui il Mus&eacute;e du Louvre e il Mobilier national et des manufactures des Gobelins di Parigi, The State Hermitage Museum di San Pietroburgo, il Kunsthistorisches Museum e l&rsquo;Albertina Museum di Vienna, il Museo Nacional del Prado e il Palacio Real di Madrid, lo Staatliche Museen di Berlino, il Victoria &amp; Albert Museum di Londra, i Musei Vaticani, la Fabbrica di San Pietro e la Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, il Polo Museale della Citt&agrave; di Roma (Galleria Nazionale d&rsquo;Arte Antica di Palazzo Barberini, la Galleria Nazionale d&rsquo;Arte Antica di Palazzo Corsini, la Galleria Borghese, la Galleria Spada), i Musei Capitolini, il Museo di Roma in palazzo Braschi, Palazzo Chigi di Ariccia, la Galleria degli Uffizi, il Museo Nazionale del Bargello di Firenze e il Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte di Napoli. <br /> <br /> La mostra, curata da Maria Grazia Bernardini e Marco Bussagli, con il contributo di un prestigioso comitato scientifico (Anna Coliva, Marcello Fagiolo, Christoph L.

From the lakes of northern Minnesota to the Oregon coast, Mt. Hood to the high desert, she sees change as a constant. Originally she understood her comfort in the landscape to be due to its unchanging nature, but now realizes that her love of landscape comes from its inconstancy. Metaphorically then the landscape becomes a trope for the human experience, where change, be it fleeting or prolonged, is the one thing we can be certain of.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">She works in her studio from sketches, photographs and memories of the places she has visited and loved. She uses both painting knives and brushes, and works in oil paint and cold wax, or acrylic paint.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 18 Mar 2015 16:45:41 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Hamid Rahmanian - The Honolulu Museum of Art - April 2nd 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">During <em><a href="http://honolulumuseum.org/art/exhibitions/14810-shanameh_epic_persian_kings/During%20Doris%20Duke%E2%80%99s%20Shangri%20La,%20the%20Islamic%20art%20center%E2%80%99s%20residency%20program%20welcomes%20Iranian%20filmmaker%20and%20graphic%20designer%20Hamid%20Rahmanian.%20As%20part%20of%20the%20residency,%20the%20Honolulu%20Museum%20of%20Art%20is%20partnering%20with%20DDFIA%20to%20hold%20Shahnameh:%20The%20Epic%20of%20the%20Persian%20Kings,%20an%20exhibition%20of%20Rahmanian%E2%80%99s%20innovative%20illustrations%20of%20the%20Shahnameh,%20or%20Epic%20of%20the%20Persian%20Kings,%20one%20of%20the%20great%20classics%20of%20world%20literature.%20Consisting%20of%20some%2050,000%20verses,%20the%20Shahnameh%20was%20composed%20by%20the%20poet%20Ferdowsi%20in%20the%20late%2010th%20to%20early%2011th%20centuries,%20but%20its%20origins%20trace%20back%20much%20earlier,%20and%20it%20follows%20the%20history%20of%20the%20Persian%20empire%20from%20its%20mythical%20origins%20to%20the%20end%20of%20the%20Sassanian%20period%20in%20the%207th%20century.%20%20In%202013,%20after%20thousands%20of%20hours%20of%20work%20over%20more%20than%20five%20years,%20Rahmanian%20published%20a%20critically%20acclaimed%20newly%20illustrated%20edition%20of%20the%20Shahnameh,%20reviving%20once%20again%20its%20significance%20for%20a%20contemporary%20audience.%20Intended%20to%20make%20the%20epic%20accessible%20to%20a%20new%20generation%20of%20readers,%20the%20bold,%20dynamic%20illustrations%20seamlessly%20update%20the%20traditional%20aesthetics%20of%20historic%20Shahnameh%20imagery.%20Rahmanian%20brilliantly%20took%2015th-%20to%2019th-century%20Iranian,%20Mughal%20Indian,%20and%20Ottoman%20miniature%20paintings%20as%20his%20source%20material,%20transforming%20them%20through%20digital%20editing%20into%20an%20entirely%20novel%20way%20of%20illustrating%20the%20text.%20%20%20The%20exhibition%20is%20part%20of%20a%20larger%20series%20of%20events%20promoting%20arts%20and%20culture%20from%20the%20Islamic%20world,%20presented%20in%20conjunction%20with%20Doris%20Duke%E2%80%99s%20Shangri%20La:%20Architecture,%20Landscape%20and%20Islamic%20Art." target="_blank">Doris Duke&rsquo;s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art</a>,</em> Shangri La The Center for Islamic Art&rsquo;s residency program welcomes Iranian filmmaker and graphic designer Hamid Rahmanian. As part of the residency, the Honolulu Museum of Art is partnering with the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art to hold <em>Shahnameh: The Epic of the Persian Kings, </em>an exhibition of Rahmanian&rsquo;s innovative illustrations of the <em>Shahnameh,</em> or <em>Epic of the Persian Kings,</em> one of the great classics of world literature. Consisting of some 50,000 verses, the Shahnameh was composed by the poet Ferdowsi in the late 10th to early 11th centuries, but its origins trace back much earlier, and it follows the history of the Persian empire from its mythical origins to the end of the Sassanian period in the 7th century.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2013, after thousands of hours of work over more than five years, Rahmanian published a critically acclaimed newly illustrated edition of the <em>Shahnameh,</em> reviving once again its significance for a contemporary audience. Intended to make the epic accessible to a new generation of readers, the bold, dynamic illustrations seamlessly update the traditional aesthetics of historic Shahnameh imagery. Rahmanian brilliantly took 15th- to 19th-century Iranian, Mughal Indian, and Ottoman miniature paintings as his source material, transforming them through digital editing into an entirely novel way of illustrating the text.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition is part of a larger series of events promoting arts and culture from the Islamic world, presented in conjunction with <em>Doris Duke&rsquo;s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape and Islamic Art</em>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hear the <a href="http://www.npr.org/2013/08/25/214831942/heart-of-iranian-identity-reimagined-for-a-new-generation" target="_blank">NPR story 'Heart' of Iranian Identity Reimagined for a New Generation</a></p> <p class="headline" style="text-align: justify;">Read <a href="http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2013/03/shahnameh-re-imagined-a-colorful-new-vision-of-old-iranian-folklore/273783/" target="_blank"><em>The Atlantic</em> story <em>Shahnameh, Re-Imagined: A Colorful New Vision of Old Iranian Folklore</em></a></p> Tue, 23 Dec 2014 12:00:36 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Richard Prince - Blum & Poe Tokyo - April 3rd 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <div style="text-align: justify;">Blum &amp; Poe is very pleased to announce<em>&nbsp;Richard Prince: New&nbsp;</em><em>Portraits</em>, the artist's first solo exhibition in Japan in almost twenty years. Prince has pioneered appropriation since the mid-1970s, mining images from mass media, advertising, and entertainment to subvert and redefine concepts of authorship and ownership. The new portraits update this strategy and continue Prince's exploration of photography through the platform of Instagram. Drawn to certain users, Prince traverses an illimitable network of links, jumping from one account to another, scanning through postings, reading endless texts, discarding, collecting, commenting, and cementing. He captures images that appear to be products of the medium itself; these portraits belong to an infinite stream of image distribution, catalyzing exhibitionism and voyeurism. The artist's comments -- non sequiturs, jokes, quotes, oxymorons, and emojis -- embolden his authorship in this enlivened new direction in portraiture. In a fusion of painting and photography, image and text, and authorship and freedom, intervention becomes composition and the written word becomes brushstroke, handled with a signature.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;" align="justify">Richard Prince&nbsp;was born in the Panama Canal Zone in 1949 and lives and works in New York.&nbsp;&nbsp;</div> Sat, 21 Mar 2015 06:57:30 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Theo Ellsworth - Missoula Art Museum - April 3rd 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Theo Ellsworth is a self-taught artist, comics creator, and elaborate storyteller. He is a painter, sculptor, mixed-media artist, as well as an illustrator. MAM is thrilled to share a cross-section of more than 50 original illustrations to celebrate his first solo museum exhibition. The selected works will be representing a cross-section of his publications.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The intensity of the illustrations and storytelling is marked by a sensitive layering of color, finished with a graphic line. His approach relates to the language of the comic book. The stories are upbeat and touching, reflecting a tale of ultimate safety in the face of what some might interpret as dangerous situations, as in his <em>The Understanding Monster</em>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">His work reaches out and touches people of all ages through engaging illustrations and surreal storytelling. Ellsworth&rsquo;s web presence is entitled <em>Thought Cloud Factory</em>, which is an appropriate title for his imaginary approach. His work has been featured in <em>Juxtapoz</em>magazine, <em>S! </em>(the Baltic Comics Magazine), <em>Trip Magazine </em>(Quebec),<em>The Treasury of Mini Comics</em>, Vol. 2 (Fantagraphics, Seattle) and <em>Cicada Magazine </em>(Chicago).</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Ellsworth was raised in Missoula and maintains a studio here. His first book, <em>Capacity</em>, was published in 2008 by Secret Acres. It is made of material from his mini-comics produced from 2005 to 2007, plus 100 pages of additional material created specifically for this publication in order to tie the stories together. <em>Sleeper Car </em>is a 32-page comic that came out in 2009. His story, <em>Norman Eight&rsquo;s Right Arm</em>, from <em>Sleeper Car </em>was chosen for <em>The Best American Comics </em>anthology in 2010.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Book One </em>of his <em>The Understanding Monster </em>came out in 2012 and won the 2013 Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Honor Prize given by Penn State University and selected for <em>Best American Comics 2014</em>. A review from The New York Times referred to <em>The Understanding Monster </em>as &ldquo;Imagination turned up to fire hose intensity.&rdquo; Most recently, Ellsworth was one of 10 Montana artists to receive the 2013 Montana Arts Council Artist&rsquo;s Innovation Award. This award is made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.</p> <p><a title="" href="http://www.missoulaartmuseum.org/index.php/ID/1e657e8cb340a68736fea650ef166db5/fuseaction/calendar.detail.htm" target="_blank">Artist Reception</a>: April 3, 5-8 PM</p> <p>Artist Gallery Talk: April 3, 7 PM</p> Wed, 18 Mar 2015 15:46:22 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Jeneese Hilton - Missoula Art Museum - April 3rd 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">St. Ignatius artist Jeneese Hilton is a painter&rsquo;s painter. Her lush canvases of expressively applied paint deftly capture light and color, form and content. The themes of her paintings are richly layered, drawing from myth, history, literature and spirituality, the personal and the communal. Imagery from her own Blackfeet tradition recurs, with creatures suggestive of Native American animism and sacredness, such as the horse, turtle, raven, bison, and bear. The fields of thick color and compelling forms invite the viewer to ponder and find meaning in the paintings.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hilton has generously donated 18 revelatory paintings from her <em>oeuvre </em>to MAM&rsquo;s permanent collection, the new home for this important and striking body of work. This gift will not only expand MAM&rsquo;s Contemporary American Indian Art Collection, but Hilton&rsquo;s large-scale and painterly works will also add depth and breadth to the permanent collection&rsquo;s offering of paintings.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hilton&rsquo;s perceptive, inquisitive mind and adventurous spirit were nurtured on her grandparents&rsquo; ranch on the Blackfeet Reservation, where she and her siblings were raised. She was a voracious reader from an early age and gifted with an intuitive love of nature and animals. Hilton earned a BS in biology from the College of Great Falls in 1964. In 1967 she joined the Peace Corps, serving as a volunteer in the Marshall Islands, followed by travel throughout Asia and the South Pacific. Upon return to the states, she began studying and producing art, including year of study at the Arte Institute Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. She formalized her art education with a BFA from the University of Montana in 1986 and an MFA from UC-Boulder in 1990.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">During her travels, Hilton noticed commonalities between the philosophies and spirituality of cultures she spent time with and her own Native American heritage, especially the animism and emphasis of community over the individual found in the eastern Taoist and Eskimo traditions. She says:</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The painting process itself motivates me and is ultimately my main emphasis and struggle. It has taught me many life lessons over the years. It is a balance between having control of the process and letting go. It has taught me the little bit of patience I now possess and how to let go of preciousness when needed. I feel that if I can make the painting work formally, the painting works. On the other hand it is the content and research that ensues before and during the process that is interesting to me and motivates and&nbsp; stimulates me to continue. I use both to suggest the effects of attitudes, dogmas, and beliefs on all aspects of life, including the environment.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Missoula Art Museum is grateful for this generous donation and proud to feature Jeneese Hilton&rsquo;s work in the Lynda M. Frost Contemporary American Indian Art Gallery. The Frost Gallery is dedicated to honor the creative cultural contributions of American Indian people to contemporary art and to ensure that Indian artists will always have a place to celebrate that contribution.</p> Wed, 18 Mar 2015 15:48:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Michael J.

A founder of the hugely influential Papunya Tula Artists, he became as one of their major painters in the early 1990s and continues to paint today.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Tjampitjinpa is most recognised for his bold, graphic paintings that explore the Tingari ancestors and their travels over vast areas of the Western Desert region.</p> Wed, 18 Mar 2015 11:09:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Gemeentemuseum Den Haag - April 4th 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">In spring 2015 a large exhibition on the changing landscape in the late nineteenth century will open at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag. Featuring over a hundred paintings of The Hague School, it will highlight how this group of painters helped create the stereotypical image of Holland. They worked in a very turbulent period, however, as the Dutch expanded towns and cities and built railways and canals in a drive to modernise the country. The diversity of the traditional landscape of the time has long been consigned to history. Nevertheless, thanks to the painters of The Hague School, we still think of Holland as windmills on the polder and cows in the meadow.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;">Ze schilderden Nederland op zijn mooist, met grazende koeien, molens en frisse wolkenpartijen. Weissenbruch, Mesdag, Gabri&euml;ls, Mauve en andere schilders van de Haagse School trokken erop uit en wisten het Nederlandse landschap op pakkende wijze vast te leggen. Zo pakkend zelfs, dat hun iconische taferelen de Nederlandse identiteit tot op de dag van vandaag bepalen. Met&nbsp;Holland op z&rsquo;n mooist&nbsp;presenteert het Gemeentemuseum Den Haag een grote tentoonstelling met ruim honderd schitterende werken. Daarbij worden verhalen verteld over de betekenis van en de veranderingen in het Hollandse landschap. De opkomst van de Haagse School hangt samen met de toenemende waardering van de natuur in eigen land. Dat uitte zich begin twintigste eeuw in de oprichting van de Vereniging Natuurmonumenten, waar rond deze tentoonstelling intensief mee wordt samengewerkt. Het resultaat is een unieke wisselwerking tussen cultuur en natuur. Iedereen kan de kunstwerken op zaal bewonderen &eacute;n op excursie in de natuur die de Haagse School zo mooi in beeld bracht.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Aan het eind van de negentiende eeuw moest de wilde natuur plaatsmaken voor nuttige landbouwgrond en industrie. Maar ook het Hollandse cultuurlandschap, dat de Haagse School zo mooi vastlegde, veranderde ingrijpend. Toch bepalen de schilderijen van deze stroming tot op de dag van vandaag hoe er (inter)nationaal naar ons land wordt gekeken. De kunstenaars hebben ons zogezegd van het Hollandse landschap leren houden. Ruim honderd schilderijen, de eerste natuurfotografie uit het einde van de negentiende eeuw, archiefmateriaal en een uitgebreid buitenprogramma met excursies in natuurgebieden geven &nbsp;bezoekers een beeld van het Nederlandse landschap van weleer en het landschap anno 2015. Een aantal topwerken die in het Gemeentemuseum worden getoond, waren lange tijd in Japan. Nu vormen ze het middelpunt van&nbsp;Holland op z&rsquo;n Mooist, aangevuld met werken uit veel andere, belangrijke museale en particuliere collecties.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Excursieprogramma<br />Wie de tentoonstelling bezoekt, zal ons landschap daarna met andere ogen bekijken. Zeker wanneer het bezoek wordt aangevuld met een door Natuurmonumenten georganiseerde excursie in landschappen en natuurgebieden als Midden-Delfland, de&nbsp;Nieuwkoopse Plassen, Naardermeer of Planken Wambuis. Dit voorjaar wordt een programma met diverse wandelingen, fietstochten en een rondvaart gepresenteerd met een duidelijke link naar de tentoonstelling. Een van de fietstochten - naar Midden-Delfland - start bij het Gemeentemuseum&nbsp; en kan dus bij uitstek worden gecombineerd met een bezoek aan de tentoonstelling.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Samenwerking<br />Minister Bussemaker (OCW) hecht grote waarde aan verbindingen tussen de cultuursector en andere &ndash; voor onze samenleving belangrijke &ndash; organisaties.Holland op z&rsquo;n mooist &ndash; Op pad met de Haagse School&nbsp;sluit hier naadloos op aan. Behalve met Natuurmonumenten werkt het Gemeentemuseum voor deze tentoonstelling ook samen met andere organisaties. Samen met het Dordrechts Museum wordt het complete verhaal van de Haagse School verteld. Hier is namelijk in dezelfde periode een tentoonstelling over de vroege periode te zien en er verschijnt een gezamenlijke catalogus. Verder is onder andere samengewerkt met het&nbsp;Bijzondere Collecties van de Universiteitsbibliotheek Leiden en wordt de tentoonstelling mede mogelijk gemaakt door de ASN Bank. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thu, 05 Feb 2015 07:02:28 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Carl Andre - Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía - April 4th 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM <div class="field field-name-field-exposicion-texto field-type-text-long field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em> Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958-2010 </em> offers an in-depth study of a crucial period in contemporary art by virtue of the work of Carl Andre (Quincy, Massachusetts, 1935). The artist&rsquo;s oeuvre falls under the categories of Minimalism, Land Art and Conceptual Art, reflecting the formal concerns of his epoch, for instance appropriation, the &ldquo;unaltered&rdquo;, the standardisation of industrial materials, the use of stark geometric forms and the introduction of the site-specific concept.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition features around 200 sculptures and works on paper produced over the past 50 years, ranging from his most influential works made with metallic plates, levers, ribbons and slopes, to other unique examples of his artistic practice, serving as an example with which to understand the development of his progressive concept of &ldquo;sculpture as form, sculpture as structure, sculpture as place&rdquo;. In addition to this broad selection of sculptural works, the exhibition focuses on the key role of language in Andre&rsquo;s artistic practices via a large number of visual and concrete poetry series, textual collages and works on paper realised between 1958 and 1972. Lastly, the exhibition will assemble, for the first time in 20 years, an exceptional group of works entitled <em> Dada Forgeries</em>, expounding his jocular relationship with Duchamp&rsquo;s readymades.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Carl Andre: Escultura como lugar, 1958-2010 </em> ofrece un estudio en profundidad de un periodo crucial del arte contempor&aacute;neo, a trav&eacute;s de la obra de Carl Andre (Quincy, Massachusetts, 1935), un artista cuyo trabajo puede inscribirse en las categor&iacute;as de minimalismo, land art y arte conceptual y que presenta las preocupaciones formales de su &eacute;poca, como es la apropiaci&oacute;n, lo inalterado, la estandarizaci&oacute;n de los materiales industriales, el uso de formas geom&eacute;tricas desnudas o la introducci&oacute;n del concepto de site-specific. <br /> <br /> La exposici&oacute;n cuenta con alrededor de 200 esculturas y trabajos en papel realizados en los &uacute;ltimos 50 a&ntilde;os, abarcando desde sus obras m&aacute;s influyentes realizadas con planchas met&aacute;licas, palancas, cintas y pendientes, hasta ejemplos m&aacute;s singulares de su pr&aacute;ctica art&iacute;stica, que ayudan a comprender la evoluci&oacute;n de su concepci&oacute;n progresiva de &ldquo;escultura como forma, escultura como estructura, escultura como lugar&rdquo;.

Designers responded enthusiastically to the freedom of the post-war period, creating dynamic and stimulating patterns inspired by art, science, and everyday life. Czech-born Jacqueline Groag was one of the most versatile women designers of this period. From the colorful and playful to the abstract and representational, Groag&rsquo;s work contributed to Britain&rsquo;s spirit of renewal and defined the popular &ldquo;contemporary&rdquo; style. An extremely inventive artist with a finely tuned sense of color, Groag utilized collage and drawing to develop her exceptional child-like visions.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Pattern Play: The Contemporary Designs of Jacqueline Groag</em>&nbsp;provides a rare opportunity to view these original works on paper alongside Groag's lively, bold designs for furnishing textiles, dress fabrics, laminates, and other decorative surfaces drawn primarily from the Denver collection of Jill A. Wiltse and H.

Dealing with themes such as domesticity, memory, memorial, and a changing community, the exhibition will fill all galleries at MOCAD. Many of the artists involved have created new works that expand on their existing bodies of work while utilizing new techniques and materials. <br /> <br /> With works commemorating Brewster Douglass, and classic Detroit children's TV show <em>Boofland</em>, the exhibition also explores the narrative of Detroit; the foundation of it&rsquo;s identity and the character of it&rsquo;s inhabitants. While many of the artists included in the exhibition are lifelong residents of the area, others are recent transplants who have chosen to make Detroit their home. This exhibition takes the form of a celebration of the people that create meaning through art within our chaotic and exuberant city.<br /> <br /> <strong>Participating Artists</strong><br /> <br /> Jon Brumit, Coco Bruner, Jason Carter, Kate Daughdrill, Oren Goldenberg, Ben Hall, Marie T.

The gift was derived from the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, which sought meaningful homes in museums across the United States for selections of more than 28,500 of his photographs.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Andrew Warhola, known as Andy Warhol, was born in Pittsburgh, PA, on August 6, 1928. He died an untimely death, on February 22, 1987, at age 58 from complications after routine gallbladder surgery. Following a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his work as a painter, avant-garde filmmaker, record producer, and member of highly diverse social circles that included Bohemian street people, distinguished intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Polaroids reveal an important dimension of Warhol&rsquo;s process. From 1970 to 1987 the master of Pop Art took an enormous number of Polaroid photos of celebrities, rock stars, athletes, art world personalities, and curious unknowns. Although his Polaroids often served as aids in painting portraits, they are significant works in and of themselves and represent the range of people who passed through Warhol&rsquo;s life.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The silver gelatin print is an archival photographic process in which light-sensitive materials are fixed to paper and are stable under normal keeping conditions. Though largely unknown, the black-and-white prints represent Warhol at his most personal. Seen together, they convey the process of an individual who consumed imagery without judgment or filter. Any subject could be equally interesting to his lens: anonymous individuals, the corner of a building, a cat, etc.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As such they have a strong kinship with his better known&mdash;and famously controversial&mdash;films. Between 1963 and 1968, he made more than 60 films, plus some 500 short black-and-white &ldquo;screen test&rdquo; portraits of visitors to &ldquo;The Factory,&rdquo; Warhol&rsquo;s New York studio. Some of these films could be seen as extended still photography. MAM, together with the Roxy Theater, is hosting several of the more animated and story-governed Warhol films. The series is organized and presented by Michael Steinberg, the executive director of the Roxy Theater. To read the entire curatorial statement by Michael, click <a href="http://www.missoulaartmuseum.org/files/documents/Ill%20Be%20your%20Mirror.pdf" target="_blank">here</a>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Andy Warhol&rsquo;s art was grounded in the photographic image, and he took tens of thousands of photographs during his lifetime. The 140-plus photographs seen here provide a unique insight into Warhol&rsquo;s process and his life and work. This exhibition is the result of an exchange of collection works, where MAM&rsquo;s Chris Larson sculpture, <em>Pause</em>, was lent to the WSU Museum of Art in 2010. In exchange WSU has graciously lent this spectacular collection to MAM.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>The preceeding essay was drawn largely from text written by Keith Wells, former curator at WSU.</em></p> Wed, 18 Mar 2015 15:51:24 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Karin Bubas - Monte Clark Gallery - April 11th 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Tue, 17 Feb 2015 09:55:12 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Andy Warhol, Susan Rankaitis, Joyce Neimanas, Chris McCaw, Bill Jay, Betty Hahn, Pierre Cordier, David Emitt Adams - Phoenix Art Museum - April 11th 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition expectation that photographs are infinitely reproducible multiples. Typically photographs are printed from a negative or digital capture, and can be produced in editions ranging from a few prints to several hundred. However, some photographic processes &ndash; including daguerreotypes, tintypes, and Polaroid prints &ndash; produce only a single, one-of-a-kind object.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In other cases, artists choose to use materials in a way that produces a unique artwork, such as sculpting and collaging with or painting and drawing on photographs.
