ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Jason Rhoades - BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Art - March 6th - May 31st <p style="text-align: justify;">Jason Rhoades, <em>Four Roads</em> will be the first major gallery exhibition of the work of this exceptional artist who died in 2006 at the age of 41. Rhoades lived and worked in Los Angeles.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Jason Rhoades, Four Roads</em>&nbsp;will occupy BALTIC&rsquo;s two largest floors, with four installations to be navigated by four interpretive paths or roads: Jason Rhoades, American Artist; Jason the Mason, (a biographical thread named for a childhood nickname); Systems (language, scale, indexing, economies), and&nbsp;PeaRoeFoam. By foregrounding these themes, the exhibition aims to open up for investigation Rhoades&rsquo;s spectacular, overloaded installations. Immediately accessible and eye-catching, these works are at the same time deeply systematic, detailed, and rewarding of careful engagement. Using neon, plastic buckets, power tools, snaking wires, figurines, sound, and a vast range of other materials, including a V8 engine, Rhoades&rsquo;s work brings the viewer in with humour, vibrancy, and the provocative audacity of his vision. The show will be anchored by four major installations.<em><br /></em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>VISITOR NOTICE<br /></strong>Please note that Level 3 has an over 18 years access policy due to explicit content.<br />Photography is not permitted on Level 3 &amp; Level 4</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Jason Rhoades, Four Roads</em>&nbsp;is organised by the Institute of Contemporary Art,&nbsp;University of Pennsylvania and curated by ICA Chief Curator, Ingrid Schaffner.&nbsp;This exhibition is made possible by The Pew Center for Arts &amp; Heritage.&nbsp;This exhibition is a cooperation of the Institute of Contemporary Art, University&nbsp;of Pennsylvania, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Kunsthalle Bremen</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Exhibition supported by:</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;<img title="file_1255084283141" src="" alt="" width="142" height="37" border="0" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thu, 05 Mar 2015 15:58:15 +0000 Tony Swain - BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Art - March 7th - July 12th <p style="text-align: justify;">At a time when we have become desensitised to an image-saturated world, Tony Swain (born Northern Ireland, 1967) uses familiar sections of newspaper that are pieced together as a support for paintings of fragmented landscapes and abstract patterns. Using acrylic paints, he fixes these &lsquo;works on paper' directly to the gallery walls, emphasising the everyday and temporary feel of newsprint. While occasional details of the newsprint and images survive, most are transformed by their inclusion within Swain&rsquo;s painted world.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For his exhibition at BALTIC, Swain presents a series of new and recent &lsquo;pieced&rsquo; paintings that continue his explorations of the representation of landscape.</p> Thu, 05 Mar 2015 15:56:03 +0000 Hooshang Khorasani - Yellowstone Art Museum - January 22nd - March 7th <p>Paintings by Louisiana artist Hooshang Khorasani are in an exhibit at a Montana museum.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings, Montana, is exhibiting the acrylic-mixed media painting "Following the Tumbleweed," a set of two 30x40-inch abstracts.

Zu sehen sein werden Werke von 130 K&uuml;nstlerinnen und K&uuml;nstlern aus den Bereichen Malerei, Skulptur, Fotografie, Grafik und neuen Medien.<br /> Ein tragender Gedanke der Ausstellung ist es, dass Kunst pluralistisch nebeneinander pr&auml;sentiert wird; verschiedene Stile, Richtungen und Medien finden ihren Platz und unterschiedliche Generationen stehen in einem k&uuml;nstlerischen Dialog. Die &bdquo;Gro&szlig;e Kunst-ausstellung NRW D&uuml;sseldorf&ldquo; ist die gr&ouml;&szlig;te von K&uuml;nstlern f&uuml;r K&uuml;nstler organisierte Ausstellung in Deutschland.</p> Sun, 01 Mar 2015 16:20:16 +0000 Laddie John Dill - Art 1307 Villa Di Donato - March 26th - May 10th <p>The great American artist has been invited by the Italian Cultural Institution ART1307 based in Napoli, to spend one month in their Residence for artists &nbsp;to explore the city and to produce works inspired by the city. &nbsp;As an artist of &ldquo;Light and Space&rdquo; movement he will &ldquo;capture&rdquo; the Southern Italian &nbsp;light and transform it in artworks based on the reflection of the light towards the &nbsp;viewer&rsquo;s eyes.</p> Sun, 01 Mar 2015 09:18:44 +0000
