His paintings are vivid reminiscences of a bygone era. If&nbsp;<strong>Charles Bukowski</strong>used paintbrushes instead of a typewriter, the outcome might look something like this. But there&rsquo;s also a bit of Steinbeck and Hemingway and a whole lot of&nbsp;<em>Nightmare Alley</em>. Like a skid row&nbsp;<strong>Robert Williams</strong>, or a sideshow&nbsp;<strong>Frank Cassara</strong>, Fox&rsquo;s work is both cartooned, but realistic, with the types of surrealist flourishes that would make&nbsp;<strong>Dali</strong>&nbsp;proud. Fox&rsquo;s is a dark, shadowy world of second rate carnivals, low rent flophouses and dustbowl trailer parks filled with ornery hustlers, scheming grifters, and Machiavellian femmes fatales, as witnessed by a support cast of affable hobos and menacing clowns.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3><strong>The Coaster Show 2014</strong></h3> <p>We&rsquo;ve all done it. We&rsquo;ve sat at the bar, drinking a beer and doodled on a coaster.</p> <p>But most of us aren&rsquo;t the extremely skilled painters, illustrators, animators, tattooists, sculptors or collage artists that are featured in this exhibition that takes a love of craft brewing and elevates it to high art.</p> <p>The folks behind L.A. Beer Week produced a custom canvas for some of our favorite gallery folks to do what they do best, and transform a 4&Prime; tondo coaster into museum worthy exhibition pieces.</p> <p>Last year, we dotted our walls with over 700 tiny masterpieces, and this year we&rsquo;ve outdone ourselves&ndash;with over 1000! The rules were simple: Each coaster must be a solitary work (though it&rsquo;s fine if several pieces work together contextually), and they must be priced $250 or less. There is no bottom, so some coasters were&nbsp;even free!</p> Fri, 19 Sep 2014 01:14:34 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Daniel Joseph Martinez - LACMA - Los Angeles County Museum of Art - September 21st 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM <div style="text-align: justify;">Join Art Catalogues to hear Daniel Joseph Martinez speak with Christine Y. Kim, LACMA's associate curator of Contemporary Art, about roaming Los Angeles, dead bonsai, knowledge, and madness.&nbsp; Martinez will also sign his new book,&nbsp;<em>The Report of My Death Is an Exaggeration; Memoirs: Of Becoming Narrenschiff.</em><br /><br />As interpreted by Michel Foucault,&nbsp;<em>Das Narrenschiff (The Ship of Fools)</em>, a fifteenth-century satire by Sebastian Brant, imagines a world in which knowledge belongs squarely in the realm of madness, useful only to those who would debate idly and apply nothing to experience. Daniel Joseph Martinez (born 1957) has recognized the relevance of this allegory to present times, and through text paintings, photographs and sculptures, he has traced contemporary Los Angeles onto Foucault's conception of<em>Narrenschiff</em>. Inspired by bus rides observing his fellow passengers, Martinez conceived of four narratives that explore a modern kind of knowledge-based perversity.&nbsp;<em>The Report of My Death Is an Exaggeration; Memoirs: Of Becoming Narrenschiff</em>, documents Martinez's installation of these works at Roberts &amp; Tilton in Culver City, California, also features an essay by art historian, critic and curator Juli Carson.&nbsp;<br /><br /> <div>Throughout his career, Daniel Joseph Martinez has engaged in an interrogation of social, political, and cultural mores through artworks that have been described as nonlinear, asymmetrical, multi-dimen- sional propositions. The works, ranging from the solid to the ephemeral, are executed in a wide range of media, including text, sculpture, photography, painting, installation, robotics, performance, and public interventions. Ongoing themes in the work are contamination, history, nomadic power, cultural resistance, war, dissentience, and systems of symbolic exchange, directed toward the precondition of politics coexisting as radical beauty. Martinez is professor of theory, practice, and mediation of contemporary art in the Department of Art of the University of California, Irvine; he teaches in the Graduate Studies Program and the New Genres area. He lives and works in South Los Angeles.<br /><br /></div> Juli Carson is professor of critical and curatorial studies in the Department of Art at the University of California, Irvine, where she also directs the University Art Galleries. Her essays on conceptual art and psychoanalysis have been widely published in&nbsp;<em>Art Journal</em>,&nbsp;<em>Documents</em>,&nbsp;<em>October</em>,&nbsp;Texte zur Kunst, and&nbsp;<em>X-Tra</em>, as well as in numerous international anthologies and exhibition catalogues. She is author of&nbsp;<em>Exile of the Imaginary: Politics, Aesthetics, Love</em>&nbsp;(Vienna: Generali Foundation, 2007) and&nbsp;<em>The Limits of Representation: Psychoanalysis and Critical Aesthetics</em>&nbsp;(Buenos Aires: Letra Viva Press, 2011).

Executed over the course of three decades, the architectural works demonstrate Shire&rsquo;s understanding of the formal principles of twentieth century art and architecture collided with his interrogations of popular culture and the vocabulary of visual design. Plying graphic forms and structural geometry with radically saturated colors, Shire&rsquo;s architectural constructions are high-voltage improvisations of artistic legacy and traditional architectural platforms. The resulting works exuberantly transform space and environment.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition charts Shire&rsquo;s commissions from his first public entry in the 1984 Olympics (Los Angeles), to a 1990 sculptural installation commissioned by Sapporo Corporation, Hokkaido, Japan, to the most recent 2012 River Park, Ventura County public art installation. This creative journey will highlight architectural models and sculptural elements, ideation sketches, finished drawings and paintings, and varied objects of inspiration that have functioned as source material and propelled Shire&rsquo;s imagistic installations. &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Spanning a career of path-breaking interventions and showcasing Shire&rsquo;s cross-disciplinary approach to materials and art categories, the architectural commissions exalt the blending of &ldquo;fine&rdquo; and &ldquo;applied&rdquo; art. They celebrate Shire&rsquo;s knowledge and production of ceramics, furniture, sculpture, drawing and painting, as all are essential attributes that potently inform Shire&rsquo;s architectural work and artistic vision.</p> Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:36:05 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list JPW3 - Night Gallery - October 10th - November 8th Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:23:55 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Iwan Baan, Stephen Wilkes, Paula Bronstein, Jonas Bendiksen, Monica Nouwens - Annenberg Space for Photography - December 13th - May 3rd, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Sink or Swim: Designing for a Sea Change</em> explores the human story of resilience, from adaptation for survival to ambitious infrastructure planning, in some of the richest and poorest of the world&rsquo;s coastal communities. Rather than showing pristine architectural photography, the photographs present viewers with various human responses to changes in their landscapes due to sea level rise. &nbsp;<em>Sink or Swim </em>aims to foster critical dialogue through the provocative juxtaposition of diverse responses to a challenge shared by millions worldwide.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Curated by architecture writer and radio host <strong>Frances Anderton</strong> with the Annenberg Space for Photography, <em>Sink or Swim</em> features newly commissioned and archival works by photographers<strong> Iwan Baan, Stephen Wilkes, Paula Bronstein, Jonas Bendiksen </strong>and <strong>Monica Nouwens</strong>. This is the first exhibition for Annenberg Space for Photography to feature commissioned works.&nbsp; Through the work of this select group of architectural, fine art and news photographers, the exhibition casts an eye on both the problem of climate change in densely populated coastal regions and contemporary design as a means to navigate the changing landscapes. &nbsp;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&ldquo;We were eager to organize an exhibition focusing on architecture but adamant that we wanted it to tell the story from a human perspective,&rdquo; says Wallis Annenberg, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of the Annenberg Foundation.&nbsp; &ldquo;We are delighted that these new works tell such powerful stories about resiliency, climate change and architecture as well as engage with viewers on a humanistic level. &nbsp;The exhibit&rsquo;s capacity to foster dialogue that offers fresh perspectives on the environmental issues of our day -- and how communities are rising up to meet the challenges -- is very much keeping with the mission of the Photography Space and the Annenberg Foundation.&rdquo;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">In the face of increasing global attention on climate change and rebuilding in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the Indian Ocean tsunami, Superstorm Sandy, and the&nbsp;Tōhoku&nbsp;tsunami, <em>Sink or Swim</em> is a timely examination of resiliency strategies in architecture and design. &nbsp;Images range from highly complex coastal flood-mitigation in the Netherlands, controversial sea walls in Japan, to innovative homes and community buildings by leading architects including Pritzker prize-winners <strong>Thom Mayne, Toyo Ito</strong> and <strong>Shigeru Ban</strong>.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Anderton collaborated with photographers experienced in capturing fragile built environments to determine the locations, design projects and communities across the world that served as subjects for the commissioned works in the exhibition. &nbsp;Sea walls, floating schools and temporary disaster relief housing in disparate ecological and social contexts provide concrete starting points for considering questions about nature, culture and design at the heart of <em>Sink or Swim</em>.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&ldquo;It has been a privilege to dig into these extraordinary photographers&rsquo; rich archives and also send them back out on assignment to create compelling new work that we look forward to sharing with the public through the exhibition,&rdquo; says Anderton.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">&ldquo;Photography is an ideal medium through which to explore climate change and the built environment because ultimately this is a human story and the photographs get to the emotional heart of that story. Through images of coastal communities&mdash;the devastating impact of climate change, including super-storms and rising sea levels, and also the varied and innovated design solutions&mdash;<em>Sink or Swim</em> offers visitors the opportunity to engage with and enrich dialogue about all aspects of this predicament.&rdquo;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">An original documentary film commissioned by the Annenberg Space for Photography and produced by award-winning director Steven Kochones and Arclight Productions will include interviews with the artists, architects, historians and scientists engaged with climate resilient strategies for waterfront communities.&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">A collaboration between the Annenberg Space for Photography and the Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands will offer visitors to Sunnylands a preview of&nbsp;select prints from the <em>Sink or Swim</em> exhibition.&nbsp; The images will be on display beginning in October 2014 to coincide with a retreat at Sunnylands on the topic of rising sea levels and ocean acidification.&nbsp; An exhibition catalogue will be published by Sunnylands Press for release in December 2014.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>The Photographers</strong></span><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Following his experience photographing the celebrated Makoko Floating School (designed by Kunl&eacute; Adeyemi for the Makoko community on the water near Lagos, Nigeria,) Dutch photographer <strong>Iwan Baan</strong> was drawn to the lake village of Ganvie in Benin, where residents have lived on the water for centuries. New work by Baan in the exhibition also includes photographs of the massive Deltaworks sea defenses; the promenade at Scheveningen near The Hague in the Netherlands, a flood-protection system interwoven with a tourist destination designed by Spanish firm De Sol&agrave;-Morales; and the post-tsunami Home-For-All community buildings by Toyo Ito and other leading architects in Japan.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">U.S.-based fine art photographer <strong>Stephen Wilkes</strong> revisited communities he first encountered in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy. &nbsp;His images include striking aerial photographs that present a unique perspective on infrastructure improvements within the context of natural landscapes that remain susceptible to flooding. Wilkes also created portraits of New Orleans area residents in the newly built homes, intended to be models for resilience, by the Make It Right Foundation and Global Green in the Lower 9<sup>th</sup> Ward and Holy Cross neighborhoods of New Orleans. One of the first photographers to capture aerial images of the coastline damage following Hurricane Sandy, Wilkes documented Staten Island&rsquo;s Oakwood Beach where homeowners have elected to sell their property to the state, which plans to return the area to wetlands rather than rebuild.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Veteran photojournalist <strong>Paula Bronstein</strong> traveled to Japan for <em>Sink or Swim</em> and captured the immense sea walls now being built off the tsunami-hit coast of Japan. She also captured daily life in the storage container structures designed by 2014 Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban to house refugees following the Tohuko earthquake and Tsunami.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Dutch-born, Los Angeles-based, photographer <strong>Monica Nouwens</strong> turned her lens on California, finding in the restored Malibu Lagoon a local example of wetlands restoration. She also captures a very human story of denial, exemplified in a photograph of a California woman walking her dogs, oblivious to a tsunami sign above her head.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Sink or Swim</em> also features Norwegian Magnum Photos photographer <strong>Jonas Bendiksen&rsquo;s</strong> documentation of Bangladesh coastal and delta communities, where increasingly unpredictable and intense flooding has prompted innovative adaptations in a culture that has dealt with seasonal flooding for centuries. Bendiksen spent two years capturing the low-tech structural and farming innovations in the challenging landscape, as well as the floating schools project designed by Mohammed Rezwan for his nonprofit Shidulai Swanirvar Sangstha.</span></p> Tue, 16 Sep 2014 03:21:58 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Group Show - bG BLEICHER/GORMAN - September 20th 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;" dir="ltr">bG Gallery presents the group exhibit &ldquo;Dirty Minds: Life on Earth&rdquo;.

With continued focus on the materiality of the photographic print, her new works oscillate between image and object, photography and sculpture, landscape and still life. Each piece is a &ldquo;response&rdquo; to an original image that is sculpted and collaged into a tabletop assemblage and then re-photographed. The final prints hover between being illusory and tangible, seemingly impossible but showing evidence of their actual construction.</p> <p>To create the first generation images, Plageman visited popular stops along the California coast, scenic destinations that draw countless visitors all with camera in hand. She regards these places as almost object-like themselves in how they are experienced and collected. Plageman reflects on how the landscape can be mutable psychically and physically, less real through aesthetic distance and literally changing shape through forces of nature and human impact. With every new rendition, the land acquires layers of meaning and opens up an array of interpretations and possibilities.</p> <p>In the end, Plageman&rsquo;s works are a cumulative record of her observations and experimentation over time and space. Each account has a bit of truth and fiction. Heeding Susan Sontag who said, &ldquo;all photographs are momento mori,&rdquo; Plageman reminds us that things change and boundaries shift, encapsulating the transience and dynamism of our world.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Laura Plageman</strong> (b. 1976, Berkeley, CA) received her BA from Wesleyan University and MFA from California College of the Arts where she has held various academic appointments. Her work has been in exhibited in galleries and institutions across the US, including recent exhibitions at Photo Center Northwest in Seattle and Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago. She lives and works in Oakland, California.</p> Sun, 14 Sep 2014 00:31:27 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list
