A retrospective survey of watercolors and drawings by noted abstract expressionist artist Michael Loew will open on Saturday 9 February at ACME Fine Art in Boston. A reception from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. will mark t he occasion. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday 2 March at the gallery and on-line at www.acmefineart.com. 

\n

The exhibition will b e composed of works created between the late 1930s and 1985\, and it highli ghts drawings and watercolors that were made as studies for paintings or mu rals\, as well as finished\, stand alone artworks.

Michael Loew w as a master of weaving geometry with nature. He seemed to delight in explor ing the limits of nature based abstraction. Throughout his career one can s ee a back and forth between the almost totally abstract\, and the represent ational. Although it is impossible to say how and where Loew's modern tende ncies originated\, it is fair to say that his experiences\, his education\, and his own interests led him in a distinctly avant-garde direction very e arly on. On the side of experience\, one might point out his collaboration with DeKooning on a 1939 NYC World's Fair mural that led to a life-long fri endship that must have influenced Loew. Certainly\, his post war training u nder one of the most important nature-based abstract expressionists\, Hans Hofmann\, also proved to have had significant influence. Then\, there was h is study abroad at the Atelier Leger. Although various influences may have come to bear on Michael Loew\, his work is always in his own true voice\, a nd that voice is consistently clear\, concise\, and elegantly expressive. < /p>\n

 A comprehensive exhibition catalogue including an essay by Susan C . Larsen is available through the gallery. Please contact ACME Fine Art for further information about Michael Loew\, or this exhibition.

Candice Breitz: The Character is the first major solo exhibition in Australia by internationally renowned South Africa n artist Candice Breitz.

To what extent are our lives 'scripted' for us by the media we consume and other influences that we enc ounter in our intimate and social environments? Pop music\, cinema and cele brity culture converge in the artist's video installations to reflect on ho w we create\, define and perform our identities in a world of mass media sa turation.

Through inventively re-edited interviews\, fan perfo rmances and montaged cinema sequences\, Breitz's works present a new take o n contemporary portraiture by creating innovative narratives to probe and a nalyse individual experience.

A major part of the exhibition w ill be the inclusion of The Woods\, a new work making its internat ional debut. Co-commissioned with the Peabody Essex Museum\, Breitz's new t rilogy focuses on child performers and the performance of childhood to prob e aspirations and promises embedded in mainstream cinema.

From adoring Michael Jackson fans re-performing the Thriller album\, t o in-depth interviews with identical twins and studied re-performances of p opular 'rom-com' scenes\, Breitz playfully yet astutely investigates the ex tent to which our lives are constructed by parameters dictated to us by the media\, society\, and the particular moment in time that we are born into.

Opening today at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is Warwick Thornton: Mother Courage\, a striking video and sc ulptural installation from lauded Australian filmmaker Warwick Thornton. Th ornton is an Alice Springs based filmmaker and artist whose film Samson &\; Delilah (2009) won the Camera d’Or for best first feature at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. 

\n

Commissioned by ACMI for the ACMI Comm issions Series\, Warwick Thornton: Mother Courage is a two-channel v ideo and sound installation presented inside a dilapidated campervan. Inspi red by Bertolt Brecht's 1939 play Mother Courage and Her Children\, Thornton has translated the play’s underlying theme of survival to an Austr alian context. Whereas Brecht's Mother Courage drags around a cart\, plying her wares on the battlefields of an endless war\, Thornton's Mother Courag e is an elderly and impoverished Aboriginal painter who makes and sells her art from the back of a van.  Surrounded by paint pots\, utensils and beddi ng\, the resourceful woman (played by artist Grace Rubuntja) applies hersel f to her dot painting\, while her bored grandson sits listening to loud Abo riginal rock music that blares from a radio. The artist and her grandson ar e physically confined to the cramped space of the campervan\, and yet the w ork invites the viewer to place the pair in a much larger context that ackn owledges the influence of culture and tradition\, but also the impact of co lonisation.

\n

Mother Courage made its international debut last year in Kassel\, Germany at the prestigious art festival dOCUMENTA (13). H ere Mother Courage was constantly on the move\, roving from gallery to gallery and visible to queues of exhibition visitors around the city. At ACMI\, the work finds new meaning within the rarefied confines of the muse um\, cutting against the grain of the white cube/black box experience offer ed by Gallery 2.

Adelson Galleries Boston is pleased to present Caint to Cain t\, a solo exhibition of Winfred Rembert (b. 1945).  The artwork will be on display from Friday\, February 1st\, 2013 through March 31st\, 2013 in our South End gallery at 520 Harrison Avenue.
 
The title of the s how is based on Winfred Rembert’s painting\, “Caint to Caint (Can’t see whe n you go to work\, can’t see when you get back)\,” referring to working in the cotton fields before sunrise until after sunset during his days in Cuth bert\, Georgia in the 1950s and 60s.  Winfred continues this work ethic - w orking from the early morning to late at night telling his life’s story on leather sheets.
 
Having survived the hardships of bigotry\, ne ar lynching\, and jail\, Winfred has seen some of the ugliest moments in Am erican history.  He retells these memories with a method that he learned in prison when he witnessed a man carving leather wallets.  He began practici ng this technique\, and later in his life\, at the suggestion of his wife P atsy\, Winfred took the practice to a new level by carving his life story i nto sheets of tanned leather that he colors with dye.  He does not simply d epict the horror of his past\; rather\, he recaptures the feeling and visio n of Cuthbert\, Georgia in the 1950s and 60s.  One sees segregated pool hal ls\, church and town scenes that seem antiquated\, yet they existed during this man’s generation.  His amazing life story is not only an inspiration\, but also an important part of American History.

This exhibition presents a dramatic inside look at 1960s bik er counterculture. From 1963 – 1967 Danny Lyon not only captured the bikers in photographs\, but immersed himself in the lifestyle. Lyon joined the Ch icago Outlaw Motorcycle Club\, making him a pioneer of the new form of phot ojournalism where the artist was personally involved with the subject. This series was featured in Lyon’s defining first photography book and became o ne of the most important and influential documentary series of the late 20t h century. This exhibition is drawn exclusively from the museum’s extensive holdings of Lyon’s work.

“Before he descends\, a di ver never knows what he will bring back up.” (Max Ernst)

\n


The Albertina will devote an exhibition - his first retrosp ective in Austria - to Max Ernst\, the great pictorial inventor. Presenting a selection of 180 paintings\, collages\, and sculptures\, as well as rele vant examples of illustrated books and documents\, the exhibition will asse mble works related to all of the artist’s periods\, discoveries\, and techn iques\, thereby introducing his life and œuvre within a both biographic and historical context.

\n

Together with Matisse\, Picasso \, Beckmann\, Kandinsky\, and Warhol\, Max Ernst no doubt numbers among the leading figures of 20th-century art history. An early protagonist of Dadai sm\, a pioneer of Surrealism\, and the inventor of such sophisticated techn iques as collage\, frottage\, grattage\, decalcomania\, and oscillation\, h e withdraws his work from catchy definition. His inventiveness when it come s to handling pictorial and inspirational techniques\, the breaks between h is countless work phases\, and his switching back and forth between themes cause irritation. Yet what remains a constant is his consistence in terms o f contradiction.
Max Ernst was a restless personality who always strov e for freedom. Torn between the realization of his personal aims in life an d the social and political obstacles during a turbulent period\, he neverth eless always looked ahead: a “flight into the future”. A misunderstood and revolting artist\, he had moved from Cologne to Paris in 1922\, where he jo ined the circle of the Surrealists\; he was detained as hostile alien twice \, attempted to get away\, and was released thanks to lucky “coincidences”. In 1941 he escaped into American exile
Remembrance\, discovery\, recy cling\, and collage were the combined motor that drove him in his work.  Un der these aspects\, the exhibition positions Max Ernst’s œuvre between refe rences to the past\, contemporary political events\, and a prophetic and vi sionary perspective of the future. He who attested to himself a “virginity complex” in the face of empty canvases went always in search of means that would allow him to augment the hallucinatory capacities of his mind\, so th at visions would arise automatically in order to “rid him of his blindness” .

Religion\, Ritual and Performance in the Renais sance brings together more than 80 works\, sacred and secular\, spanni ng the late thirteenth to early seventeenth centuries\, from both Northern and Southern Europe. The objects—which include paintings\, sculptures\, and decorative arts—are from the collections of the AMAM and Yale University A rt Gallery.

\n

The exhibition was made possible by a generous grant fr om the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation\, as part of a collection-sharing initia tive. It presents works used in private devotion\, public worship\, religio us processions\, and other rites and rituals\, such as marriages\, alongsid e those of a more secular nature\, including portraits and chests\, which n evertheless perform functions related to self-fashioning and display. Among the many exceptional works in the exhibition are two portable altarpieces that would have been used in private devotion: one\, a painted triptych (th e earliest on view\, from ca. 1280-90)\, is discreet and intimate\, while t he other\, a lapis lazuli- and coral-encrusted work complete with its case (one of the latest works\, from 1608)\, is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The exhibition allows the AMAM to supplement its rich Renaissance collectio n with superb paintings from Yale by Taddeo and Agnolo Gaddi\, Sano di Piet ro\, Ridolfo Ghirlandaio\, Lucas van Leyden\, and Jacopo Tintoretto\, among many others\, as well as sculptures from France\, Germany\, and Italy.

\n

An exciting aspect of the exhibition is the opportunity it presents to see works by Apollonio di Giovanni\, Neri di Bicci\, Mariotto di Nardo\, a nd Barthel Bruyn the Elder from both the AMAM and YUAG collections. Also re united are six enigmatic paintings from a series of twelve by Maerten van H eemskerck. A very large early fifteenth-century Florentine altarpiece is se en in its full glory\, emphasizing the fragmentary nature of so many other Renaissance paintings whose original surrounding works have been lost. The exhibition will be used extensively in teaching\, research\, and public pro grams during the 2012-13 academic year.

As in earlier periods\, the art of the 20th and 21st centuri es engages in a dialogue with the important themes of religion\, ritual\, a nd performance. Works from the AMAM collection by artists from diverse back grounds and artistic approaches reflect a broad array of responses to these concepts. Examples by artists such as Louise Bourgeois and photographer Ho lly Wright address religion\, ranging from the Christian tradition to other beliefs from around the world. Other artists like Jackie Winsor employ the idea of ritual as an art-making strategy\, while Alison Saar and José Bedi a present it as a subject. Ephemeral performance art is documented in works by artists including Joseph Beuys\, Dennis Oppenheim\, and Ana Mendieta.
