ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Philipp Kremer - Nicodim Gallery - October 29th - December 3rd <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="td1" valign="top"> <p class="p1">Nicodim Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition by German artist Philipp Kremer (b. 1981). The exhibition will be on view from October 29 through December 3, 2016.<br /> <br /> Seemingly effortless but complex, eccentric but liberating, obscene but amicable, Kremer&rsquo;s paintings of people engaging in orgies and lovemaking in his &ldquo;Gatherings&rdquo; series and crying faces in his &ldquo;Pause&rdquo; series not only strike the viewer with an &ldquo;in your face&rdquo; effect, but also emanate nuanced sensitivity toward humanity at the same time.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">The erected dicks, the anguished faces, and the interlocked bodies in his monochromatic &ldquo;Gatherings&rdquo; are depicted with large, swift, yet precise brushstrokes of unmixed, bright, and transparent oil paint. The artist also intentionally leaves ostensible voids on the canvas to reinforce the aesthetic expression of the negative space, which allows for a more objective reading of his provocative portraiture other than mere eroticism.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">The more playful &ldquo;Pause&rdquo; is a further development of the formal approach in &ldquo;Gatherings&rdquo;. By zooming in onto a single distressed face, and applying bigger brushstrokes of more than one color on each canvas, the artist intensifies the interplay between indexicality and iconicity: tracing the physical act of painting while insisting on being an organized representational, yet emotional picture. The void and the emerging white background function in unison as a hidden force that simultaneously presents the visible elements and suggests an invisible narrative. As a result, the image depends not only on what is painted, but also on what is left empty.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Wed, 26 Oct 2016 05:51:02 +0000 Ed Ruscha, Ed Moses, Andy Moses, Lita Albuquerque - Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency - October 25th - November 5th <p><strong>JOSHUA TREE HIGHLANDS ARTIST SCHOLARSHIP ART AUCTION</strong></p> <p><strong>JTHAR scholarships online art auction &amp; party in Venice, Ca. &nbsp;Purchase works by major artist of today &amp; tomorrow.

She moved to Los Angeles on a Fulbright Grant to pursue her MFA at CalArts. She is also a recipient of the Soros and Durffee Grants. Her work was shown at ARCO Madrid, in Douloun Museum of Art in Shanghai, in Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Israel, as part of the program of The European Capital of Culture and in numerous venues and festivals in the USA. Nata&scaron;a exhibited twice at the Venice Biennale. First she represented Slovenia at the 48th Biennale, and last year she was part of the Biennale&rsquo;s collateral exhibition 20 Artists from Los Angeles presented by bardoLA.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Her videos and films reside in the variable spaces between the physical body and the world. Sourcing from personal experiences, her practice encompasses the impact of technological and social changes on human body. It reflects on the uncertain place in today&rsquo;s world of consumerism, continuous crisis and addiction to technology. She is trying to find a ground of connection that unites people with the organic world, testing the limitations of human body and hinting at its potential limitlessness. In the process of production she crafts all aspects of her projects: concept, recording, editing, sound and often performing &ndash; using her own body as a subject of transformation. Her videos and films are moving collages, where several levels interact in a controlled chaos. The impact of accidents / incidents is very important because it often leads to semi-abstraction, where the most exciting and authentic creations take place.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For more information on the artist visit:&nbsp;&nbsp;<a class="m_4716829410948568495moz-txt-link-abbreviated" href="" target="_blank" data-saferedirecturl=";q=;source=gmail&amp;ust=1476644333298000&amp;usg=AFQjCNFtZdxH9wYWKQuxA98vUTy8__SlZw"></a></p> Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:04:54 +0000 - Human Resources - November 6th 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM <div style="text-align: justify;">Smith scholar Josh Lubin-Levy will introduce never-before-seen 8mm footage from Jack Smith, featuring Mario Montez, Tally Brown and Smith, alongside his short film I Was A Male Yvonne DeCarlo (1967 &ndash; 1970s).

For his seventh solo show at the gallery Tillmans brings together a broad selection of new and previously unseen work that spans the various themes, visual motifs, and processes developed over the course of his career.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For nearly three decades Tillmans has challenged and expanded the field of contemporary photography. His distinct multi-faceted visual aesthetic comprises complex installations filled with evocative pictures that capture places and the pulse of its youth culture, experimentations with abstraction and scale, and methods of image making that abandon the camera, all of which have helped push forward the limits and possibilities of the medium.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition revisits long-standing interests present in the artist&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>oeuvre</em>. A recent picture depicting a pair of black shorts draped on a banister references an early motif expressed in &lsquo;grey jeans over stairpost,&rsquo; taken in 1991. Several startlingly pink large-scale abstract works from his signature Freischwimmer/Greifbar series are prominently affixed onto the gallery walls. Examples of Tillmans&rsquo;s interest in exploring the fundamental qualities of the photographic process, these non lens-based photographs are the result of light exposed onto color photographic paper. Shown together these works challenge common perceptions of the real and question how photographic processes change our conception of the world around us.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Referencing both art history and the modern world, several images of the Atlantic Ocean are depicted in the tradition of naturalism, dating back to Gustave Courbet. Endlessly open onto a seemingly infinite horizon line they can be seen as visual metaphors evoking the seminal &lsquo;sea changes&rsquo; in our contemporary global society. Populating the installation are intimate portraits of friends, collaborators, and what the artist terms &lsquo;free humans.&rsquo; Elsewhere a freely composed still life explores the potential of a bunch of vegetables bought in a market in Jamaica, Queens. In a world that is constantly generating and disseminating new images these glimpses of vernacular quotidian life encourage the viewer to question what it means to make a portrait or a still life today, when the artist is fully aware of everything that that impossible task encompasses.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">On display in the center of the gallery is a sculptural table installation from his Truth Study Center, which was on view as part of his first traveling US museum retrospective in 2006-7. For this particular iteration Tillmans will employ the tables in a new method, addressing concepts of time and truth from a personal as well as scientific point of view.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As with all of his exhibitions, each installation is site specific and Tillmans pays particular attention to the architectural qualities of the space in which his works are displayed. The result creates elaborate configurations that combine different sizes and orientations of prints that are hung both framed and unframed to the walls. Within the exhibition space each image intermingles to form new constellations of meaning and possibilities for aesthetic dialogue. When viewed as a whole, the exhibition presents a light hearted portrait of the world in which we live, undertaken with a deep awareness of just how endangered the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today really are.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Wolfgang Tillmans</strong>&nbsp;(b. 1968 Remscheid, Germany) studied at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design, United Kingdom, graduating in 1992. He lives and works in Berlin and London.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2017 he will have major solo exhibitions at Tate Modern, London (February 15 &ndash; June 11) and at the Beyeler Foundation, Basel (May 27 &ndash; October 1).

The gallery will present its collection of Jasper Johns lithographs and etchings from 1967-2012. Many of these editions were printed and published by revered ateliers such as Gemini G.E.L., Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE), Petersberg Press. A wide range of Johns' iconography is represented in the exhibition, including Savarin cans, targets and numerals.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">Jasper Johns made his first lithographs in early 1960 and quickly became an inquisitive and skilled printmaker of great ability and prolificacy. Johns' oeuvre across all media centers around memory, replication and reproduction, so it is no surprise that he should be seduced by the unlimited range and experimentation printmaking affords him in reusing imagery and reproducing motifs. His work often conveys autobiographical associations and memories through particular elements or marks.&nbsp;<em>Savarin 3 (Red)</em>, 1978 (above), is largely constructed of the painterly application of Johns' own fingerprints serving as a visual conduit for preserving both action and memory as a form of self-portraiture. He develops intricacies throughout the printmaking process, which act as a record keeper of time and memory. Johns says simply, "Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it."</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">Jasper Johns' first series of etchings was&nbsp;<em>1st Etchings, 2nd State</em>, 1967-69 (image below Flashlight). The portfolio of 13 etchings published by ULAE was comprised of quintessentially Johnsian imagery: ale cans, flags, flashlights, numerals, and light bulbs. The objects are as Johns describes, "things the mind already knows", which thusly allows him to deconstruct and reconfigure the object into near abstraction whereby a new connotation can emerge. Processes like etching and lithography reverse the image, a characteristic that Johns admires. He also relishes in the nature of multiplicity and variants, which allow him to revisit themes and objects finding endless combinations in reworking plates and stones, sometimes years later.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">The work of Jasper Johns is held in esteemed and numerous public collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Jewish Museum, New York, New York; Kunstmuseum, Basel, Switzerland; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York; Museum of Fine Art, Boston, Massachusetts; Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York; Museum of Modern Art, Paris, France; National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C.; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; National Museum of Stockholm, Sweden; Pasadena Art Museum, California; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; St&auml;dtische Galerie, Frankfurt, Germany; Tate Modern, London, England; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York.</div> Sat, 22 Oct 2016 11:05:13 +0000 Group Show - UCLA New Wight Gallery - October 27th - November 10th <p style="text-align: justify;">An exhibition featuring work by UCLA Department of Art MFA students graduating at the end of the academic year, including work in ceramics, interdisciplinary studio, new genres, painting/drawing, photography, and sculpture.</p> Sat, 22 Oct 2016 10:59:31 +0000 Lena Daly - Various Small Fires - November 5th - December 23rd Sat, 22 Oct 2016 10:56:56 +0000
