ArtSlant - Openings & events http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/show en-us 40 - Annenberg Space for Photography - April 25th, 2013 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Two years after British-American photojournalist Tim Hetherington's death while documenting the Libyan war, this lecture will explore alternative representations of conflict. Hetherington sought to shift the emphasis from the military hardware to the "software" of conflict, making war a personal matter. The discussion will explore the legacy of Hetherington's work with contributions from colleagues Stephen Mayes, Director of VII Photo in New York, Michael Kamber, conflict photographer, author and co-founder of the Bronx Documentary Center as well as award-winning writer/director Topaz Adizes who had collaborated with Hetherington on a film before his death.</span></p> <div style="text-align: justify;" class="views-field views-field-field-event-reg-period"> <div class="field-content"><span style="font-size: small;">Online registration for this event opens Wednesday, April 17 at 12pm PST and Thursday, April 18 at 9:30am PST</span></div> </div> <div class="views-field views-field-field-lecture-event-url"> <div style="text-align: justify;" class="field-content"><span style="font-size: small;"><a href="http://irisapr25.eventbrite.com"><img src="http://www.annenbergspaceforphotography.org/sites/all/themes/asp/images/iris-nights/eventinfo_on.jpg" /></a></span></div> </div> <div class="field-content"> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Annenberg Space for Photography offers live programming through our IRIS Nights lecture series, a public program offered free of charge, by online reservation on a first-come, first-served basis.

This victory provided Rome with its first overseas territory, Sicily, and launched Rome on a path of Mediterranean conquest. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Underwater archaeologist Jeffrey G. Royal speaks about the exciting discovery of remains from the Battle of the Egadi Islands—including rams, helmets, and amphoras—and the new insights they provide about warship construction, ship-to-ship engagements, armor types, state organization, and fleet operations in the ancient world. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"> This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition <a target="_blank"><i>Sicily: Art and Invention between Greece and Rome</i> </a>on view at the Getty Villa April 3 through August 19, 2013.</span><br /><br /></div> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><b>About Jeffrey G.

This exhibition is a newly-produced, career-spanning overview while emphasizing the artist&rsquo;s mature work. Whereas cubism and surrealism had been common among his predecessors, Mendive instead incorporates visual elements rooted in Lukumi/Yoruba visual traditions into his painting. </span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><span>The exhibition starts with an exploration of Mendive's formative years--early drawings, clay works and small textiles. It continues with his mythological paintings, appliqu&eacute; works (<em>Sacred Cloths</em>) and abstract pieces. It concludes with some of his bronze and soft sculptures, and an installation of masks that surround the screening of the video <br /><em>Las Cabezas.&nbsp; </em>The video captures a 2012 performance during the Havana Biennale. </span></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-family: Verdana;">In </span>addition to the use of religious themes in the exhibition,&nbsp;Mendive's work incorporates the concepts of nationalism, mysticism and history. Each series bears witness to both the time and place of its making, showing the artist&rsquo;s growth and development, but also testifying to his deep commitment to Afro-Cuban culture and the art of painting in addition to his concerns around the nature of religion and its visual language.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">This exhibition has been curated by Dr. B&aacute;rbaro Mart&iacute;nez-Ruiz, a Cuban born Art Historian with expertise in African and Caribbean artistic, visual, and religious practices. The exhibition opens at the California African American Museum (CAAM), will proceed to the Frost Museum at Florida International University, in collaboration with the University of Miami.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Background</strong>: Manuel Mendive is a recognized international contemporary master whose career has flourished during Cuba&rsquo;s revolutionary period. He has exhibited throughout Europe, Russia, Africa, and Latin America. However, because of the decades old U.S.-Cuba embargo, his work has rarely been seen in this country.</span></p> <p><a href="http://www.culturela.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.caamuseum.org/images/manual_mendive/DCA_LOGO_CMYKCS.jpg" alt="logo - department of cultural affairs - los angeles" width="180" height="33" border="0" /></a> <a href="http://www.fundacionamistad.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.caamuseum.org/images/manual_mendive/FA_LOGO.jpg" alt="logo - fundacion amistad" width="180" height="54" border="0" /></a> <a href="http://thefrost.fiu.edu/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.caamuseum.org/images/manual_mendive/FIU_FrostLogo_3.jpg" alt="logo - florida international university - frost art museum" width="180" height="47" border="0" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 24 May 2013 22:23:23 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Simone Forti, Andrea Fraser, Mary Kelly, Yvonne Rainer - Hammer Museum - April 26th, 2013 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">While dance has long intersected meaningfully with the visual arts, the past five to ten years have witnessed an explosion of dance being presented in an art context. <em>Dancing with the Art World</em> convenes artists, choreographers, curators, and historians to reflect on the recent interface between dance and art, consider its historical precedents, and debate its effects on artistic and institutional practice.

Arceneaux constructs drawings, installations, video and film works as complex arrangements of association that examine adjacencies and points of contact between implausible relations. From 1999 to 2012 Arceneaux served as Director of the Watts House Project, an artist driven neighborhood redevelopment project centered around the historic Watts Towers. Edgar and art historian Sue Bell Yank co-founded WHP as an organization in 2009. Edgar cares about the relationship between art and the social space and has committed his professional life to its exploration.   </span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="p1"><span style="font-size: small;">He has participated in artist residencies at Art Pace in San Antonio; Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, and at the Fachhochschule Aachen, in Aachen, Germany. Solo exhibitions of his work have been presented at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Kitchen, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Studio Museum in Harlem, and the Museum für Gegenwartskunst in Basel, Switzerland.

This is the artist’s first exhibition in Los Angeles in fifteen years and includes her newest multi-media work <i>Scopophilia</i>, a 25-minute-long slide installation commissioned by the Louvre Museum, as well as a group of related photographic works, many of which are being shown for the first time. </span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: small;"> <i>Scopophilia</i>, which consists of over 400 photographs culled from Goldin’s career, pairs her own autobiographical images with new photographs of paintings and sculpture from the Louvre’s collection. Organized around themes of love and desire, <i>Scopophilia</i>, which means “the love of looking,” reflects on Goldin’s intensely personal photographs, as well as the unique permission given to the artist to photograph freely throughout the Louvre Museum. Of this project, Goldin explains, “Desire awoken by images is the project’s true starting point. It is about the idea of taking a picture of a sculpture or a painting in an attempt to bring it to life.”</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: small;"> Nan Goldin’s work has been the subject of two major touring museum retrospectives, one organized in 1996 by the Whitney Museum of American Art, and another, in 2001, by the Centre Georges Pompidou.

Featuring 19 works from the Museum’s renowned collection of post-war art, by sculptors as diverse as Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, Barbara Hepworth, Donald Judd, Carl Andre, John McCracken and Robert Irwin, the exhibition demonstrates how sculpture moved from being a self-contained, three-dimensional object to one that engages with its surrounding space. In a variety of ways and in a variety of materials, including marble, wood, stainless steel, felt or Plexiglas, the sculptures on view illustrate some of the most innovative moments in art making in the latter half of the 20th century. The exhibition is on view from April 26, 2013, through Jan. 6, 2014, in the Museum’s temporary exhibition gallery.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="Default"><span style="font-size: small;">Romanian-born and Paris-based, Brancusi was arguably the most influential sculptor of the 20th century. His artistic inquiries into abstraction and representation, into mass and space, into craft and materials, serve as the foundation on which later artists dealt with these transformative issues. Indeed, Brancusi set up an important dichotomy when he embraced an intense understanding of his materials and worked them to a high degree of finish, always by hand, as in his masterpiece <i>Bird in Space </i>from 1931, on view in the Museum’s 20th-century gallery. But most significantly, Brancusi was the first artist to approach sculpture as a work integral to its environment. “I don’t care what they reflect,” the artist once mused of his artworks, “as long as it is life itself.” “Beyond Brancusi: The Space of Sculpture” presents signature works from the Norton Simon collections that exhibit these creative breakthroughs. While the featured works were made over a 30-year span, in several different countries and using a variety of materials, each can be seen as drawing on Brancusi’s revolutionary relationship to space.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="Default"><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition begins with the works of renowned artists Henry Moore (English, 1898–1986), Isamu Noguchi (American, 1904–1988) and Barbara Hepworth (English, 1903–1975), among others. Just a generation younger than Brancusi, these artists introduced space <i>into </i>their compositions by using holes or assembling elements around negative space. For example, supple curves reveal a dramatic cavity in Moore’s <i>Reclining Form </i>from 1966, demonstrating the artist’s concerns in balancing the physical permanence of the material with the buoyancy deliberately created by the space below and within it. Hepworth’s <i>Duo </i>and <i>Two Forms (Green and Green)</i>, both from 1973, display the artist’s significant interest in piercing holes into her forms. These material absences literally and metaphorically open each mass, where the work becomes about both the object and the opening, with neither assuming a hegemonic role over the other. The graceful marble lattice that defines Noguchi’s <i>The White Gunas </i>from 1946 makes the space between the carved forms as important as the stone itself. Further, the triangular placement of the three main verticals denies a front or back, requiring the viewer to move around the work and thus redefine it from differing viewpoints.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="Default"><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition continues with works made of non-traditional materials—often industrial— such as metal, felt, Plexiglas and coated glass. Donald Judd (American, 1928–1994), Robert Morris (American, b. 1931) and Carl Andre (American, b. 1935) all employed an aesthetic that removed their work from anything narrative or based in nature. And while they each had differing opinions as to the meaning of their sculpture, they engaged space even more aggressively than the previous generation. Judd’s <i>Untitled </i>from 1969 consists of 10 stainless-steel units, coated in blue Plexiglas, stacked vertically onto a wall, thus integrating space directly into the piece. The number of stacks varies depending on the height of the ceiling (this installation features 8 of 10), but the spaces between them remain consistent: they are the same distance apart as they are tall. Judd’s sculpture presents a visual paradox—light and open on the one hand, durable and inaccessible on the other. In Morris’s <i>Untitled</i>, also from 1969, five regular horizontal slits, cut into a large swath of industrial felt, allow the work to cascade rhythmically to the floor. Over time, the gaps between the felt grow, changing the appearance of the object and the indication of space around it. Wanting his materials to be straightforward and unmitigated, Morris nevertheless was able to transform a raw manufactured product into an object of grace and beauty.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" class="Default"><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition concludes with a grouping of works by Southern California artists who introduced experimental materials and expanded the relationship between sculptural object and space even further. Robert Irwin (American, b. 1928), DeWain Valentine (American, b. 1936), Craig Kauffman (American, 1932–2010) and Helen Pashgian (American, b. 1934) introduced light and its reflection into their work, as well as a perceptual aspect aimed at the viewer, often fusing space and object. For example, Irwin’s <i>Untitled </i>from 1969 plays with perception in such a way that the distinctions between solid and void—that is, of form and space—are utterly blurred. In this piece, a painted metal disc is mounted nearly two feet from the surface of the wall, and yet it disappears into it; the form has become visually part of its surrounding space. Valentine’s <i>Large Wall </i>from 1968 is a monument to the atmosphere of sea and sky. Its transparency and its scale also reflect the artist’s pursuit of sculpture that becomes “involved with both the inside space and the outside space or surface—where most sculpture visually stops.” Pashgian’s <i>Untitled </i>from 1969 uses resin with a bent acrylic rod at its center to give the work greater dimension. While Brancusi’s finish was intended to reflect the surrounding world, Pashgian’s aim was to consider the interior of the work: in the light it absorbed, in the space it created and in the nature of its purity.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">“Beyond Brancusi: The Space of Sculpture” is organized by Associate Curator Leah Lehmbeck. A series of related programs will be presented. Dan Flavin’s 1966 sculpture <i>“monument” on the survival of Mrs. Reppin </i>is on view at the Museum from March 8 through Aug. 19, 2013.

The history of Riverside’s Eastside, in particular, is part of my family,” says Straight.<em> </em>Unique to Southern California, the inland area saw an epic migration of former military men from a wide range of places; Straight’s father-in-law and many of his neighbors were black men from Oklahoma, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and elsewhere who chose Riverside after being stationed at March Air Force Base. Their stories of life in Southern California always fascinated Straight, and her generation heard amazing stories of the Old South and the New California. The community has remained close and strong, but the older people are disappearing now and the Eastside is becoming fragmented due to fire, loss, and development.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Straight and McCulloh present several stories for <em>More Dreamers</em>; some feature older residents and high school athletes, and some about the actual physical place, including The Place – a landmark club now gone – and Daisy Carter’s house, which burned down in 2012, but remains a legacy of the Eastside.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The photographs taken of Eudora Welty, Mary Ellen Mark, Don Bartletti, and others were also inspirations for Straight’s novels and short stories. Straight and McCulloh have been working together on KCET’s ArtBound project, as well as on assignments for BOOM and The Huntington Library. “To see the landscape through photography and pair that with the stories people are willing to tell me is a wonderful confluence and a great chance to help others see my particular world,” says Straight.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Douglas McCulloh is an artist, writer, and curator. He is an honors graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and holds an M.F.A. in photography from Claremont Graduate University. He is a three-time recipient of project support from the California Council for the Humanities and has curated 14 exhibitions, including three for the California Museum of Photography. McCulloh is one of six artists who transformed an abandoned Southern California F-18 jet hanger into the world’s largest camera to take the world’s largest photograph. He views this photograph as a marker of the border crossing between 170 years of film-based photography and the era of digital dominance.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">McCulloh exhibits widely in the U.S., Europe, China, and Mexico and has shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing; Musée de l’Elysee, Lausanne; Musée Nicéphore Niépce, Chalon-sur-Saône; Institute de Cultura de Barcelona, Barcelona; Art Center College of Design, Los Angeles; Southeast Museum of Photography, Florida; Asian Cultural Center, New York City; and UCR/California Museum of Photography, Riverside.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">McCulloh’s most recent curatorial project focuses on international blind photographers. Since 2010, <em>Sight Unseen</em> has traveled to ten institutions, including Kennedy Center for the Arts, Washington D.C.; Centro de la Imagen, Mexico City; Manuel Alvarez Bravo Center for Photography, Oaxaca; Center for Visual Art, Denver; Flacon Art Center, Moscow; and Sejong Center, Seoul.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Susan Straight has published eight novels: <strong>Aquaboogie</strong>; <strong>I Been In Sorrow’s Kitchen and Licked Out All The Pots</strong>; <strong>Blacker Than a Thousand</strong> <strong>Midnights</strong>; <strong>The Gettin Place; Highwire Moon</strong>; <strong>A Million Nightingales; </strong><strong>Take One Candle Light a Room; </strong>and<strong> Between Heaven and Here</strong>. Her first middle grade reader, <strong>The Friskative Dog</strong>, was published by Knopf in March 2007. Her picture book, <strong>Bear E. Bear</strong>,<strong> </strong>was published in 1995 by Hyperion Books.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2011, Straight received the Gina Berriault Award for Fiction from San Francisco State University. In November 2007, Straight received The Lannan Award for Fiction for her body of work. In 1998, she received a Guggenheim Fellowship for Fiction.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">She has published essays and articles in numerous magazines and journals, including <em>The New York Times Magazine, The Los Angeles Times Magazine, Harpers, The Believer, The Nation, Reader’s Digest, Real Simple, Family Circle, Salon, Oxford American, and Ms.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">She has also been a regular commentator on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Born in Riverside, California, in 1960, Straight still lives here with her three daughters. She is Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing at the University of California, Riverside, where she has taught since 1988. She received the University’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 2008. Currently, she is the Director of the Master of Fine Arts Program and serves on the Academy of Distinguished Teachers at the university.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">* Zacateca's Restaurant on Riverside's Eastside is the place where Riversiders have eaten lunches and dinners and planned weddings and business ideas and proposed to each other since 1963, when Oscar and Josephine Medina opened it with three tables, 12 bar stools, and remarkable menudo.</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">* Tony and Sarah Lopez sitting on the brick planter outside Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine where they were married 73-and-a-half years ago.

"We met here, in church," Tony said. Sarah was 19, a soloist in the choir that sang in Latin. "When I heard her voice, singing by herself...." "What did you feel?" Sarah demanded. "I felt...something."

The unavoidable materiality of the photographic image, long a preoccupation in Lucas Knipscher’s work, presents a series of solutions to problems the image may or may not have, proving them as real as you or me.</span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /><span style="font-size: small;">The first of these solutions is that the images can be sent to a boot camp where they will be put through a grueling process of development until they can stand on their own two feet. The canvases will be coated and recoated in photographic emulsion, developed and redeveloped until what comes out in the end is hardly recognizable as the original image at all.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">A second option is to foster the photographic image out to a family of paintings. The image will be raised unaware of its original status and will grow up thinking and acting like a painting. The photographic emulsion will be applied to it roughly, with an expressive hand, showing the visible traces of gestures over the course of its short life.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">A more ancient and holy way of doing this would be to send the images to the priest doctor in order to give them some experience (you can develop through experience or magic) thereby making them seem more real. For example in a ritual dance – a shamanistic three-legged dance with a staff and some Indonesian loomwork – the image is tied to one foot, the material to the other and you dance so fast that they blur together. Offering up the works for some rain, burnt things, rags; this elaborates a distant journey of the devotional practices of photography, to the vocational and semi-still mystical practices of art. A primal stirring to create…a Bigfoot.  --Eva Kenny</span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Thomas Duncan Gallery</strong> is pleased to announce its second solo exhibition with New York-based artist<strong> Lucas Knipscher</strong>.  Recent exhibitions include "Lucas Knipscher, Win McCarthy, Sigmar Polke" Rachel Uffner Gallery, New York; "New York is an Island" Galerie Albert Baronian, Brussels; "We Don't Have Problems, New York is an Island" Dingum, Berlin; "Glow Rod Tanning with.... / COMCORRÖDER", Gio Marconi Gallery, Milan, Italy.</span></div> <div> </div> Fri, 26 Apr 2013 08:15:23 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Gina Osterloh, Betsy Lin Seder, JEANNIE SIMMS, Gabie Strong, Kristine Thompson, Carrie Yury - Armory Center for the Arts - April 27th, 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Contested Destination</em> features photography, drawings, and video by six artists – Gina Osterloh, Betsy Lin Seder, Jeannie Simms, Gabie Strong, Kristine Thompson, and Carrie Yury.
