A six-artist group exhibition featuring artists who work now or have worked in Provincetown will open on Saturday 13 April\, 2013 at AC ME Fine Art in Boston. A reception from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. will mark the occ asion. The exhibition will be on view through 25 May\, 2013 at the gallery and on-line at www.acmefineart.com. 

\n

The exhibition features classi c paintings by twentieth century modern artists who practiced in Provinceto wn as well as cutting edge contemporary artwork created specifically for th is exhibition by artists who have been fellows at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. 

\n

The six artists included in this distinguished g roup are:

\n

Maurice Freedman was very much a "mid-century modern" art ist. Freedman's brilliantly colorful paintings of interior scenes at once v isually recall his study with Max Beckman during the first half of the twen tieth century and at the same time illuminate his own personal outward-look ing experiences in both Provincetown and his studio in New York. His work e xpressively captures both time and space.

\n

Mary Hackett was a self-t aught painter and longtime resident of Provincetown. Her scenes of everyday life contain numerous symbolic and memory-laden objects placed in an often naïvely constructed space that together create an autobiographical narrati ve that is so compelling that Hackett has developed a formidable cult follo wing among those fortunate enough to know and collect her rare creations.  

\n

Sharli Powers Land was a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in 19 69-'70. Her boldly evocative paintings have an uncanny appeal with a dynami c composition and a palette that is downright explosive. Land's interior vi ews capture a sense of place while often making reference to a place in tim e through the incorporation of formal references to her contemporaries such as Mary Hackett and Myron Stout.

\n

Samuel Messer was a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in 1981. Messer is currently Associate Dean of the A rt program at Yale University. His interior portraits are wildly expressive paeans to his subject. They convey an all-encompassing vision of their sit ter through the loosely rendered likeness that is central to the compositio n and through the complex interior environment created by Messer. 

\n

Meghan Gordon was a recent fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center. Gordon's ar twork relies heavily on art-historical research. She creates paintings/draw ings\, objects\, film\, and installations that create an alternative art hi story that actively engages and challenges the observer. The interior is co nsistently a crucial theme and component of Gordon's artistry.

\n

Paul Kelly is a contemporary artist living in Provincetown whose subject matter is most often Cape related. Kelly's paintings have an elegantly edited qua lity both in palette and in composition. The resultant views appear both tr ue to their location and completely abstract\, simultaneously. Like Freedma n\, this artist is interested in the view through the opening\; however\, i n Kelly's interiors all but the essential has been eliminated.

\n

\n

Beyond the obvious links having to do with the outer Cape\, the IN TERIORS exhibition will explore common threads in the genre as evidenc ed in the works by these six important 20th and 21st century artists. Some of the common threads are: visual and formal interests in the relationships between inside and out vis-à-vis the notion of containment\, the use of pe rsonal objects as symbols and the meanings associated with them\, the manip ulation of perspective to enhance a sense of space and volume\, the introdu ction of historical references and the connections such references make wit h the observer\, and how the introduction of the figure -portrait or self-p ortrait- animates the interior.

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.

Architecture\, Art and Collaborative Design is a traveling exhibition celebrating the ninetieth anniversary o f the birth of Harry Seidler\, the leading Australian architect of the twen tieth century. The exhibition traces Austrian-born Seidler’s key role in br inging Bauhaus principles to Australia and identifies his distinctive place and hand within and beyond modernist design methodology. The fifteen featu red projects—five houses and five towers in Sydney\, and five major commiss ions beyond Sydney—focus on Seidler’s lifelong creative collaborations\, a pursuit he directly inherited from Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius\, with pr ogressive artistic visionaries: architects Marcel Breuer and Oscar Niemeyer \, engineer Pier Luigi Nervi\, photographer Max Dupain\, and artists Josef Albers\, Alexander Calder\, Norman Carlberg\, Sol LeWitt\, Charles Perry\, Frank Stella\, and Lin Utzon.

\n

The exhibition was developed by curat or Vladimir Belogolovsky of Intercontinental Curatorial Project in New York with Penelope Seidler and Harry Seidler &\; Associates in Sydney and sp onsored by Seidler Architectural Foundation. Seidler’s work is presented th rough architectural models\, sculpture maquettes\, photographs\, films\, co rrespondence\, books\, scrapbooks\, periodicals\, drawings\, and original s ketches—provided by the architect’s family\, Historic Houses Trust of New S outh Wales\, The Josef &\; Anni Albers Foundation\, The Marcel Breuer Di gital Archive at Syracuse University\, and the private archives of artists Norman Carlberg\, Charles Perry\, and Lin Utzon.

Vladimir Belogolovsky: “I would draw attention to two reasons wh y Seidler is important and why he will always be important. First\, it is h is love for architecture\, his position on following his convictions to whi ch he was always true and a mission to make the world a better place where architecture is a big part of it. He was a real crusader and not just for h is own work but for what he believed – whether voicing his support for Jørn Utzon’s Opera House in Sydney or protesting against unfitting addition to Marcel Breuer’s Whitney Museum in New York by Michael Graves. And second\, I think is really important\, particularly today when so many architects ar e entrenched with their ambitions compromised and scaled down. It is the im portance of inspiration. Seidler’s vision was grand and he drew his inspira tion from a multitude of sources – art\, geometry\, history\, and so on. I would particularly stress the importance of art as an endless source of cre ative inspiration for architecture.”

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.

"If you want to get int o his work\, guess how many colors are represented in the various pieces on display. For instance\, Stanczak used simple black and white in one of his transparencies pieces called &ldquo\;Intravert I.&rdquo\; When studied and mused upon\, a viewer can begin to see other shades &ndash\; purple someho w coming through as one tone.

\n

In his &ldquo\;It&rsquo\;s Not Easy Being Green\,&rdquo\; one migh t think in this grid work that there are two basic colors being employed &n dash\; blue and green. On closer study\, there are actually 45 different co lors.

\n

How does the ar tist do it? How indeed. You can see\, if you look closely enough that Stanc zak juxtaposes color and manipulates the closeness or distance between sepa rations of colors. Stanczak may begin by painting a canvas black or white\, or green or blue\, and then applying stripes of tape (from his own tape ma chine) in varying distances between lines before he applies the second\, or 44th color. According to him\, the eye does the rest by making connections and applying some kind of order to what it is looking at."

Line Color Illusion: 40 Years of Julian Stanczak showcase s paintings and prints collected by the Akron Art Museum since 1970. The ex hibition documents both Julian Stanczak&rsquo\;s impressive career as a mas ter of color and the museum&rsquo\;s longstanding commitment to his work.\n


A longtime resident of Northeastern Ohio and retired Clevelan d Institute of Art professor\, Julian Stanczak earned international recogni tion as a pioneer of &ldquo\;Op Art\,&rdquo\; a style based on optical illu sion\, following his first New York exhibition at Martha Jackson Gallery in 1964. Soon after\, Stanczak&rsquo\;s work--which he characterizes as perce ptual abstraction&mdash\;was included in the Museum of Modern Art&rsquo\;s landmark exhibition The Responsive Eye. Stanczak has continued to draw upon his deep understanding of color theory to explore how colors interact and are perceived. While his signature motifs have evolved\, his paintings and prints over the years are characterized by lines and colors that set up vib rations and create pulsating patterns.

\n


The Akron Art Museum hosted one of the first public museum exhibitions of Julian Stanczak&rsquo\ ;s work and acquired the painting Dual Glare in 1970. Since that t ime the museum has augmented its collection with paintings and screen print s representing the variety of materials\, techniques and formal elements th at Stanczak continues to explore.

The landscape photographs by the US-American Lewis Baltz are characterized by deserted and frequently devastated periphe ries. In 1970s\, he revolutionized fine-art photography with motifs that ha d previously not been thought worth depicting\, such as industrial building s\, suburban housing developments\, and wasteland.

From March 2 013\, the Albertina will dedicate an exhibition comprising as many as sever al hundreds of photographs to this artist\, who was born in Newport Beach\, California\, in 1945. On display will be\, among other works\, the famous series The Tract Houses (1971) and The New Industrial Parks Near Irvine (1973-75)\, through which Balt z fundamentally reformed the genre of landscape photography\, thereby addre ssing the disastrous impact of technology on society in the twentieth centu ry.

Baltz’s imagery reveals itself as thoroughly innovative: in formally rigid photographs\, such as in the series The Prototype Works (1967-76)\, the artist has defamiliarized architectura l motifs to such an extent that they turn into almost abstract forms and su rfaces. This utterly precise language of form\, by which Baltz focuses on t he materiality and surface textures of the objects depicted\, demonstrates the influence of Minimal Art on his work. With their allusions to further a rtistic movements\, such as Conceptual Art and Land Art\, Baltz’s photograp hs turn out to be a play with citations and references that is to be analyz ed in this exhibition.

The show will highlight outstanding work s by Lewis Baltz\, which apart from the aforementioned examples will includ e the series Candlestick Point (1987-89) and the co lour photographs of Sites of Technology (1989-91). The Albertina seizes this exhibition as an opportunity to display exception al photographs from its own holdings in the form of the two series The New Industrial Parks Near Irvine and The Prototype Works. Further excellent works by such artists as Rober t Smithson\, Ed Ruscha\, Bernd &\; Hilla Becher\, and Donald Judd will v isualize artistic influences that proved to be crucial for Lewis Baltz’s wo rk. This contextualization is meant to present the complexity of Lewis Balt z’s œuvre on the one hand and pay tribute to one of the most important phot ographers of the second half of the twentieth century on the other.

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.
