During the past 20 years\, Richard Deon has explored the vis ual style and methods employed by Textbook illustrators from the 1950s. The se unsung artists sought to introduce school-aged children to public instit utions\, history\, and politics through the use of easily graspable images and situations. Deon draws on their methods\, arranging figures with implic it cultural connotations in situations that mimic the civic and didactic. H owever\, he places viewers in puzzling territory\, where the seemingly fami liar describes &ldquo\;an uneasy pictorial absurdity.&rdquo\; Through aesth etic recontextualization\, incuding isolation and dislocation\, misidentifi cation and nonsensical juxtapositions\, the artist allows conflicting image s and ideas to coexist without the hope of resolution. Deon will exhibit ab out 30 paintings\, ranging from monumental banners (192 x 144 in.) to easel -sized canvases\, as well as small-scaled digital prints from three graphic series.

In collaboration with architect Edwin Chan\, artist Piero Golia has completely transformed the Nasher&rsquo\;s Corner Ga llery into a luxurious gathering space that integrates architecture\, enter tainment\, and works of art by Pierre Huyghe\, Mark Grotjahn\, Jeff Wall\, and Christopher Williams. \;

\n
\n
\n

The Naples-born\, Los Angeles-based artist Piero Golia has been described as a mastermind of monumental gestures and precise orchestration. In 2013 he opened \;Chalet Hollywood\, arguably the most radical and ambitious representa tion of this characterization. Working with architect Edwin Chan\, Golia tr ansformed a storage area off of Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles into agesamtkunstwerk\, or total work of art\, integrating architecture\, entertainment\, and works of art by Pierre Huyghe\, Mark Grotjahn\, Jeff Wa ll and Christopher Williams. Golia&rsquo\;s intent was to create a space of rare beauty that would gather visitors from the vast reaches of L.A. to me et in a luxurious environment that encouraged interaction and led to a more developed sense of community. For over a year on select evenings\, Golia o pened the \;Chalet \;to friends and visitors for gathering s that ranged from extravagantly large-scale to quiet and intimate.  \; Golia designed these evenings with an unpredictable structure\, mingling ar tists and celebrities\, as a way to build a mythology around the \; Chalet \;and encourage meaningful interactions between visitors un ited by their shared experience in the space. After sixteen months of opera tion\, \;Chalet Hollywood \;closed November 3rd\, 2014.

\n

With the help of the Nasher Sculpture C enter\, Golia was able to resurrect the \;Chalet \;and bri ng it to Dallas in an effort to extend his utopian idea of community buildi ng through carefully orchestrated social gatherings. Again\, Golia worked w ith Chan to reconfigure the architectural elements of the \;Chalet Hollywood \;to its new environment in the Nasher Corner Gallery. R eusing nearly all of the original elements from the Hollywood version\, Cha n has recreated the feeling ofChalet Hollywood \;into a space that is unique to Dallas\, transforming the gallery into a warm and convivi al environment with modular white oak furnishings\, Venetian plaster walls\ , and textiles designed by Johnson Hartig.

\n

Also from Chalet Hollywood\, Golia has included Pierre Huyghe&rsquo\; s aquarium&mdash\;an ecosystem of crabs and floating rocks\; Mark Grotjahn& rsquo\;s painting \;Untitled (My Beautiful Brother Eric Baboon Face 43.30) \;of 2011\;  \;Jeff Wall&rsquo\;s photograph \;A Sapling Supported by a Post \;of 2000\; and Christopher William s&rsquo\; piano\, handed down from generations at the Kunstakademie Dü\ ;sseldorf and rumored to have been played by Joseph Beuys\, the father of s ocial action as art\, during his tenure as professor there in the 1960s.

\n

Chalet Dallas \;follows a similar structure to its Hollywood predecessor. On certain evenings\, it op erates akin to a salon\, where a wide range of guests and performers meet t o experience whatever entertainment Golia has arranged for the evening. In addition\, the Chalet will be accessible during the daytime as a place for museum visitors to gather\, view the works of art\, and experience the envi ronment. On select Saturdays\, public tours will highlight certain aspects of the evening gatherings\, providing a sense of Chalet Dallas as not only a physical structure but also a space for myth-making and social engagement .

\n

Chalet Dallas \;has be en made possible through the generous support of Christen and Derek Wilson\ , Nasiba and Thomas Hartland-Mackie\, John Morace and Tom Kennedy\, and Mic hael M. Corman and Kevin Fink. Generous support for the Chalet Hollywood wa s provided by an Anonymous donor\, Meridee Williams\, Fundació\;n /Co lecció\;n Jumex\, and the Kayne Foundation.

Over the past three decades\, Belgian artist Ann V eronica Janssens (born 1956) has become best known as a light artist\, work ing with spotlights\, projections\, fog\, and other materials to create exp eriences heightening viewers&rsquo\; perceptions of themselves and their su rroundings. \;
\n
\n

Drawing on scientific research\, Jans sens aims to create situations that can resemble laboratory experiments as much as works of art. &ldquo\;It&rsquo\;s a question of provoking an experi ence of excess\, of the surpassing of limits\,&rdquo\; she has explained\, including &ldquo\;situations of dazzlement\,&rdquo\; vertigo\, speed\, and even exhaustion among feelings that can bring us to threshold states of alt ered consciousness. Her use of light to create these sensations is continge nt on architecture\, and she often creates environments in which she can te st the science of the eye with the manipulation of light within the space.< /p>\n

Janssens&rsquo\;s work exhibits forma l affinities with minimalism and the California Light and Space movements o f the 1960s and 70s\, yet eschews their penchant for monumentality in favor of the intimate\, subjective experience of the individual. \; Her exhi bition for the Nasher offers a series of sculptural proposals that move the viewer from the entrance of the building to the garden. Projected washes a nd haloes of light greet visitors at the Nasher&rsquo\;s entrance\, and two types of sculptural objects occupy the Entrance Gallery. Lying directly on the floor\, a steel I-beam more than twenty feet long\, its top side groun d smooth and polished to a mirror shine\, offers dizzying reflections of th e architectural surroundings. Sharing the entrance bay with the I-beam is a group of five glass cubes\, Janssens&rsquo\;s distinctive Aquariums\, fill ed with a blend of liquids\, including water and paraffin oil\; the interac tions between the liquids and the different ways they absorb and reflect li ght allow for striking and confounding visual effects. \;

\n

In the garden\, visitors encounter a freestanding pavilion coated with\, and named for\, the three primary colors\, \;Blue\, Red and Yellow. Visitors who enter the pavilion will find it f illed with artificial fog\, a substance that interests Janssens as a way of giving sculptural form to light: &ldquo\;Gazing at mist is an experience w ith contrasting effects. \; It appears to abolish all obstacles\, mater iality\, the resistances specific to a given context\, and at the same time \, it seems to impart a materiality and tactility to light.&rdquo\; \; As visitors move through the pavilion\, they experience not only the profou nd disorientation prompted by losing all points of navigational reference\; as light passes through the walls and ceilings\, the fog becomes radiantly suffused with their colors\, changing with the movement of the viewer and the shifting light of the sky. \;

\n

Organized by the Nasher Sculpture Center\, \;Ann Veronica Janssens  \;is the artist&rsquo\;s first solo museum presentation in the Un ited States.

The late Gary Metz&rsquo\;s Quaking Aspen: a Lyric Complaint challenged the first 100 years of l andscape photography by taking it out of the national parks and replacing t he scenic with the vernacular of the everyday American landscape. Now\, 40 years later\, this work is as powerful and relevant as ever\, resonating wi th current interest in ecology and the everyday.

Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to annou nce its upcoming exhibition &ldquo\;Defying Perceptions&rdquo\; to be held March 5 - April 9\, 2016. The show will feature engaging interpretations of imagery\, perspective and spatial relations as seen through works by Donald Groscost\, David Burdeny and Je remy Holmes. All are welcome to attend the opening reception held for the artists on Saturday\, March 5th\, 4-7pm.

\n

About the artists:

\n

New York based artist Donald Groscost creates large paintings that challenge the viewer&rsquo\;s perception of the traditional medium. \; His formal investigation of abstraction is as much about its painterly application as the process of image simulati on in our digitized era. By applying and scraping away layers of pigment ov er and over again onto a prepared surface\, Groscost&rsquo\;s paintings won drously achieve a depth and texture with an incredibly smooth finish. \ ; His oils on canvas deceivingly appear to be created by some form of virtu al media\, with a vibrancy of palette that only heightens the impression of a mechanically transmitted image. \; Groscost has had an extensive art istic career and has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions i n Europe\, Asia and the United States. \; He has a broad collector base worldwide\, is a New York Foundation of the Arts Grant recipient and has t aught and lectured in many notable universities\, museums and other institu tions here and abroad.  \;

\n

 \;

\n

The show will also d ebut David Burdeny&rsquo\;s most recent body of work\, a s eries of aerial photographs depicting salt fields in Western Australia\, Ut ah and the Mojave Desert. \; These abstracted images explore the spaces where nature and man-made structures come together\, forming unexpected an d sublime colorations.  \; The elevated and angular perspectives combin ed with Burdeny&rsquo\;s training in architecture and design make for compo sitions where light renders wonderful\, even otherworldly imagery. \; B urdeny&rsquo\;s work is in many private and public collections\, he has enj oyed over 40 solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad in the last d ecade. \; He is also a three-time winner of the IPA Photographer of the Year Award\, and the recipient of many other photography prizes. \;

\n

Providing a counter aesthetic to the photographs and paintings displa yed in the show are wood sculptures created by Jeremy Holmes. \ ; Soaking 20-foot planks of natural wood in water and using tradit ional woodworking techniques\, Holmes bends\, twists and joins the rigid ma terial to form stunning ribbons and swirls that are free-standing or mounte d to the walls. Working with an array of wood species\, stains and palettes \, his sculptures\, or three-dimensional line drawings\, can vary in tonali ty and feel. \; They can be more grounded in nature and the familiar\, or can have more intense and eye-popping modernist saturations. Holme&rsquo \;s spatial creations can also occupy entire rooms in site-specific work.&n bsp\; An emerging artist whose career has been on the rise since he earned his BFA in sculpture\, Holmes has exhibited in the United States\, Europe a nd Asia.

\n

 \;Heather Gaudio Fine Art specialize s in emerging and established artists\, offering painting\, works on paper\ , photography and sculpture. The gallery provides a full-range of art advis ory services\, from forming and maintaining a collection\, to securing seco ndary market material\, to assisting with framing and installation.

The 2016 Beckers Art Award winner\, Tomas Lundgren (b. 1985) took his BFA in fine arts at \;the Art Academy in Malmö\; and his MFA at the Valand Academy in Gö\;teborg. He was awarded Fredik Roos Sch olarship in 2014 and was shown in connection with this at the Moderna Musee t in Malmö\;. He has also participated in group exhibitions at Gö\; teborgs Konsthall\, Malmö\; Konsthall and the Gothenburg Museum of Art. He is represented in the collections at the Moderna Museet and Gothenburg Museum of Art.

\n

Jury's Statement \;
In Tomas Lundgren's artwork\, we can always glimpse a reference image. He works almost exclusi vely with old photographs\, portraits or pictures of people\, which ended u p in the archive or different types of collections. A person\, a face lifte d out of the past\, as a model he twists and turns around. Selecting-princi ples are not controlled by any rules\, he seeks no fixed ideal\, no specifi c appearance\, rather deviation\, not how the person looks\, but possibly h ow she can look. \;

\n

The interest revolves around how p ainting has the possibility to create a constructed representation of somet hing that the artist have a feeling about\, a kind of empathetic attempt to an alternative interpretation. He willingly depicts the same subject\, rep eat the process when differences\, small dislocation arises\, as to test hi s memory and his capacity at every unique occasion. The repetition becomes a ritual for visualizing time and memory\, fragments and collections. In th e choice of making the paintings in black and white thoughts unsought go to photography. In these close cross-fertilization his images develop into a meditation over painting and photography's changeable possibilities and sho rtcomings in the interpretation of reality. \;

\n

Tomas L undgren is awarded Beckers Art Award 2016\, because he is pushing the possi bilities of painting in a innovative and exploratory\, almost meditative wa y\, because he manages to break free historical fragments from the forgotte n flow of images\, merge them to alternative possibilities\, attract new li fe and create a painting that is characterized by a clear innovative will.< /em>

\n

The exhibition in Fä\;rgfabriken\, Lundgren have produced two new series of paintings. One of them is called Mirroring Part 1-4. The exhibition also features the series Variations from 2015.

\n

Beckers A rt Award has\, since its establishment in 1987\, been awarded to several of Sweden&rsquo\;s most innovative and exciting young artists\, such as Dan W olgers (1989)\, Jockum Nordströ\;m (1999)\, Linn Fernströ\;m (2000) \, and Nathalie Djurberg (2006). The selected artist receives 150\,000 SEK\ , as well as a solo exhibition organized in collaboration with Fä\;rgfa briken. Since 2000\, the selected artist&rsquo\;s works have been exhibited in a solo show at Fä\;rgfabriken.

Bouchra Khalili&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition in the Nordic region consists of works produced from 2008 to 2013. The exhibition focuse s on works that at their core situate voices of members of minorities\, oft en unheard\, and provides alternative conceptions of belonging and civic co mmunity.

\n

The Mapping Journey Project \;(2008-2011) is an 8-channel video installation. By displaying maps\, on which individuals obliged to cross borders illegally\, literally draw their journeys while re counting them\, this work provides alternative maps to normative cartograph y.

\n

The Constellations Series \;(8 silkscreen prints\, 2011) is the closing chapter ofThe Mapping Journey Project. Going back to printed maps\, the series reproduces each of the drawings from the videos forming \;The Mapping Journey Project. By translating t hem into the form of constellations of stars\, the series suggests a geogra phy of resistance as experienced by &ldquo\;singular lives ... which have b ecome\, through I know not what accidents\, strange poems&rdquo\; [Michel F oucault\, The Lives of Infamous Men].

\n

The film-trilogy \;Th e Speeches Series \;(2012-13) further emphasizes the critical func tion of speech and self-representation by operating as a platform that allo ws members of minorities based in Paris\, Genoa\, and New York respectively to address issues of language\, citizenship\, and class.

Trained i n cinema and visual art while working in several mediums\, Khalili often re purposes the visual approach of documentary cinema. \;The Opposite of Voice-Over \;however invites us to move beyond appearance as it acknowledges the presence of voices often disregarded or stigmatised by sy stems of media logic and the regulations of national representation. Throug h individual enunciations\, many times with the accent of a political minor ity\, a number of strategies and discourses of resistance are deliberated a gainst arbitrary\, societally and historically defined obstructions. Throug h her unique capacity to combine poetry beyond written language with subjec t matter and the power of the spoken word Khalili creates a temporary sense of community where there is none.

An international seminar will al so be organised in conjunction to the exhibition (TBA).
