Thief Among Thieves is a group exhibition featuring the work of more than twenty artists working in a broad range of styles and media. Rather than surveying a single theme\, the exhibition instead draws connect ions between the world of art and the world we live in. The title is drawn from the idea that artists continually borrow from the world around them &n dash\; &rdquo\;stealing&rdquo\; from both art history and from any place&nd ash\;past or present\, real or imagined.
Artists featured in the exhib ition include: Matthew Brandt\, Miguel Calderó\;n\, Cynthia Daignault \, Sam Falls\, Theaster Gates\, Patrick Lee\, Nathan Mabry\, Pedro Reyes\, Pedro Reyes\, Amanda Ross-Ho\, Raqib Shaw\, and others.
Thief Among Th ieves will be presented on the second floor of MCA Denver in the Natasha Co ngdon Gallery\, Vicki &\; Kent Logan Promenade Space\, Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery\, and the Mary Caulkins &\; Karl Kister Gallery. This exh ibition is co-organized by Nora Burnett Abrams and Adam Lerner.

This exhibition is supported in part by the Director's Vision Society and C olorado Creative Industries. MCA Denver also thanks the Citizens of the Sci entific and Cultural Facilities District.

Works presented in the exhibition SETS are shifting along th e interface between photography and film. Places depicted in the works are located in Sicily\, Rome\, Bolzano\, Bergamo\, Trent and were built under M ussolini. The exhibition introduces an extended readability of the publishe d trilogy &lsquo\;Borgo Romanità\; Alleanza&rsquo\; (Hatje Cantz\, 20 14) and expands the photographic image towards the dimension of the cinemat ic.

Three different aspects maintain a focal point of the exhibi tion. The first refers to the pan shots and camera work in movies of the pr opaganda facility &lsquo\;Instituto Luce&rsquo\;\, founded in 1924\, as wel l as in the work of the director Michelangelo Antonioni in his films from t he 1950&rsquo\;s and 1960&rsquo\;s. The second aspect deals with the stoppi ng of the moving image and with the exposing of the view. The third approac h concerns the impact of the historical narration on the public space which today is still used as a stage for the political and everyday life.

The depictions in frescos\, marble and stone generate a specific poli tical dimension of those places. They can be read as &lsquo\;backdrops&rsqu o\; - a technical term taken from area of the stage setting which means a p ainted curtain used as background of the stage. Placed in front of those se ttings things become scenery and persons transform into parts of the play ( mise-en-scè\;ne). Within the works of Johanna Diehl the expression &l squo\;mise-en-scè\;ne&rsquo\; refers to the original 'mettre quelqu'u n\, quelque chose sur la scè\;ne'\, which means as much as &lsquo\;to make someone or something become a subject of the theater or to assign a p lace to someone or something&rsquo\;.

In the movies of the Insti tuto Luce the Italian settlements planed and built under Mussolini formulat e settings for the appearance of power. In doing so\, they turn into frames of ideological iconography and become scenes of the spectacle. Within thei r filmic transition\, they seem only to exist in order to create meaning an d relevance. In the movies of Antonioni these places on the contrary become sites of meandering protagonists who do not know what to do. While in the propaganda movies the architecture obviously dictates how to move\, think a nd behave\, in Antinioni&rsquo\;s films it turns to a medium which reflects the inner conflicts\, isolation and void of the characters.

Joh anna Diehl&rsquo\;s recent works presented in the exhibition encounter this twofold existence of the places by discussing the elements of the filmic w ithin the medium of the photographic image. She restages these places for t he third time while simultaneously dissolving them from the status of frami ng a plot or being a setting for agents\, so that liberated observation fro m an &lsquo\;aesthetic distance&rsquo\; becomes possible in the first place . By releasing and intercepting cinematic images\, Johanna Diehl points tow ard the irresolvable status.


Johanna Diehl (*1977 in Hambu rg\, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. She studied photography/visual art s at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig under Prof. Timm Rautert\, Boris Mikhailov\, and as a master-class student under Prof. Tina Bara. She also studied at the ENSBA Paris under Christian Boltanski and Jean-Marc Bustaman te. Her works have been shown at various national and international exhibit ions. She has received numerous awards\, most recently the working stipend of the Foundation Kunstfonds Bonn and the Akademie Schloss Solitude.

Blum &\; Poe is very plea sed to announce \;Richard Prince: New \;Portraits \, the artist's first solo exhibition in Japan in almost twenty years. Prin ce has pioneered appropriation since the mid-1970s\, mining images from mas s media\, advertising\, and entertainment to subvert and redefine concepts of authorship and ownership. The new portraits update this strategy and con tinue 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\, readin g endless texts\, discarding\, collecting\, commenting\, and cementing. He captures images that appear to be products of the medium itself\; these por traits belong to an infinite stream of image distribution\, catalyzing exhi bitionism and voyeurism. The artist's comments -- non sequiturs\, jokes\, q uotes\, oxymorons\, and emojis -- embolden his authorship in this enlivened new direction in portraiture. In a fusion of painting and photography\, im age and text\, and authorship and freedom\, intervention becomes compositio n and the written word becomes brushstroke\, handled with a signature.

Richard Prince \;was born in the Panama Ca nal Zone in 1949 and lives and works in New York. \; \;
