The artist is internationally renowned for concept-based work across various media, and his exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum explores the poetry of chance encounters while blurring the boundary between art and the everyday. Among numerous solo exhibitions, a recent retrospective of his work took place beginning at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and traveling to Kunstmuseum Basel, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and Tate Modern, London. He is the recipient of the 2016 Aspen Award for Art. &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund.

The exhibit was curated by Gail Tremblay and Miles R. Miller, and organized for travel by the Museum of Northwest Art in LaConner, WA.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The survey includes artists familiar to the Missoula community through MAM exhibits such as Joe Feddersen, Jaune Quick-to- See Smith, and James Lavadour, and we are happy to see them again. But we are especially excited to introduce the artwork and perspectives of a new assemblage of skilled, award-winning artists, in various stages of career, to our community. Artists in the exhibit include legends that are no longer with us such recently deceased Rick Bartow, James Schoppert, and Conrad House, for whom the Heard Museum established an award to honor his legacy.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Not Vanishing </em>displays the rich diversity and wide range of artistic approaches and subject matter found in today&rsquo;s contemporary Native art scene. The spectrum of artmaking ranges from the direct deployment of traditional materials such as weaving, beading, and carving, to indirect homages using ceramic or glass, to the European studio media of drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and sculpture. But regardless of materials or techniques, each artist shares a unique artmaking perspective that honors tradition and heritage, communicates the struggles of surviving within a hostile dominant culture, or both. These artists elevate the discussion using wry humor, intelligent insight, and rich talent to share cultural experiences, make social commentary, and in some cases to reimagine a bitter past.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Curator Gail Tremblay (Onondaga/Micmac) teaches at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA. She received her BFA in drama from the University of New Hampshire in 1967 and her MFA in creative writing from the University of Oregon in 1969. Tremblay has been working in the visual arts community of the Pacific Northwest for more than 20 years. Her woven film baskets have been acquired by museums and corporate collections throughout the United States, including the Portland Art Museum, the Hallie Ford Museum, and Microsoft. In 2001, Tremblay was awarded the Governor&rsquo;s Arts and Heritage Award for the State of Washington.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Miles R. Miller (Yakama/Nez Perce) is an artist, scholar, and independent curator. He has developed exhibits with the Burke Museum, the Hood Museum, and the Northwest Museum of Art and Culture and worked in the collections of the National Museum of the American Indian (including a curatorial residency), the Peabody Museum, and the Nez Perce National Historic Park. Miller&rsquo;s research focuses on Native American ethnographic and contemporary arts, not only as aesthetic objects, but artworks rich in concepts of authority, pluralism, and social identity. As a curator, he encourages artists to actively articulate their tribal histories and knowledge portrayed in visual culture and invites audiences to meet cultural specialists who can express their perspectives and experiences.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.missoulaartmuseum.org/index.php/ID/60d731e33964cdfa8ccefff1adf2a4c6/fuseaction/calendar.detail.htm" target="_blank">First Friday</a>: Blessing by Corwin Clairmont &amp; Gallery Talk with Miles R. Miller: August 5, 7 PM</p> Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:20:19 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Galen Brown, Justin Favela, Katie Lewis, David Ryan, Brent Sommerhauser, Rachel Stiff - Nevada Museum of Art - August 5th 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Nevada Museum of Art Director of Contemporary Art Initiatives JoAnne Northrup has partnered with Las Vegas-based art advisor Michele Quinn to co-curate<em>Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada</em>. The exhibition bridges the divide between Northern and Southern Nevada communities and provides a wide-ranging overview and understanding of the most accomplished work being created by more than thirty artists living and working in Nevada today.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The first nationally significant exhibition presenting art made in Nevada occurred in 2007 with&nbsp;<em>Las Vegas Diaspora: The Emergence of Contemporary Art from the Neon Homeland</em>, on view at the Las Vegas Art Museum, which has since closed. Organized by the well-respected art critic and curator Dave Hickey, the exhibition celebrated the work of twenty-six artists, all of whom received their degrees from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and studied with Hickey between 1990 and 2001 when he taught art theory and criticism in the Department of Art at UNLV.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Fast forward almost ten years later. After more than fifty artist studio visits in both Northern and Southern Nevada across Nevada, spanning Las Vegas to the south, Reno and Carson City in the north. Northrup and Quinn&rsquo;s research revealed that the Nevada contemporary art scene does not evidence a singular aesthetic permeating artists&rsquo; work, but rather a wide array of practices and media. Nevada artists are creating&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">innovative work ranging from painting, sculpture, and installation, to photography, interactive, and sound art. Their work is informed by popular culture, the natural environment, and landscape, as well as cultural identity, politics, and current events.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada</em>&nbsp;aspires to provide contemporary dialogue aimed at enlightening our broader audiences to the richness of our entire arts community and how it can be a powerful tool in the growth of the great state of Nevada. The exhibition highlights the work of six artists in depth, showing several examples from each in a variety of media. Featured artists include Galen Brown, Justin Favela, Katie Lewis, David Ryan, Brent Sommerhauser, and Rachel Stiff. The remaining artists&rsquo; work will give visitors a wide-ranging picture of the art being created across Nevada today, including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, mixed media, street art, installation, sound performance, fiber arts and new media. Some work, like that of Reno photographer Megan Berner, will live exclusively on social media. Berner plans to take daily photographs of the Northern Nevada sky for the eleven-week duration of the exhibition. The images will post to the Nevada Museum of Art Instagram account, allowing the community to view the body of work as it develops over time.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Additional collaborations and offsite installations are planned as well. Las Vegas-based artist Brent Sommerhauser will collaborate with Reno-based Holland Project and Nevada Museum of Art E.L. Cord Museum School to create small &lsquo;sketches&rsquo; in glass by layering rich color combinations of glass powder, glass strings and other glass elements over handmade glass tiles that Sommerhauser will fire on-site in his kiln. The resulting tiles will be photographed and shared on the Nevada Museum of Art Instagram account and displayed in the E.L. Cord Museum School. The combined tiles will contribute to a growing work that will serve as a participant record. Performance art elements of the show include Justin Favela&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>Family Fiesta</em>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Tilting the Basin: Contemporary Art of Nevada</em>&nbsp;will be reprised in Las Vegas in 2017 at a venue to be determined.

A word used to title an exhibition, to describe a form of thinking, to bind a community of friends and artists, and to acknowledge space as a social and formal condition, <em>Anarchitecture </em>pointed to an interdisciplinary spirit of the times that helped usher in contemporary arts centers across the country&nbsp;and, significantly, here in New Orleans.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As we begin our commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the CAC, this exhibition also serves as a formal meditation on the concept of <em>Anarchitecture</em>, an elision of the words architecture and anarchy. This exhibition presents the work of regional artists who examine the relationships between spatial and social conditions.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The organization of the Contemporary Arts Center at 900 Camp Street, in the former Katz &amp;&nbsp;Besthoff (K&amp;B)&nbsp;warehouses, serves as a demonstration of creative reuse and the power of space to articulate an image of the future. As we embark on a redevelopment of our own physical galleries, we imagine the next forty years of the CAC through the reinvention of historic forms and structures.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>This exhibition is curated by Andrea Andersson, Ph.D., The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts, and organized by the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans.</em></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="views-row views-row-1 views-row-odd views-row-first" style="text-align: justify;"> <div class="views-field views-field-field-artist"> <div class="field-content"> <div class="node-content"> <h3 class="node-title"><a href="http://cacno.org/artists/aaron-collier">Aaron Collier</a></h3> <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-featured"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <div>Aaron Collier is a visual artist living in New Orleans.&nbsp;He teaches drawing and painting at Tulane as an Assistant Professor.&nbsp;Solo exhibitions of his work include presentations at Cole Pratt Gallery and Staple Goods, an artist collective in the New Orleans&rsquo; St. Claude Avenue Arts District.&nbsp;His work has been included in group exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, and has been featured in New American Paintings.&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>Colliers's paintings are represented in collections such as the New Orleans Museum of Art, Iberia Bank, and the Boston Medical Center.
