Night</em>&nbsp;is the inauguration of an effort to collectively develop new gestures for use in social communication.<br />&nbsp;<br />Gesture maps tie different hand motions to various functions for touchscreen devices. In the last several years, hundreds of these maps have been patented by corporations like Apple. As smartphones, tablets, and multi-touch trackpads have become ubiquitous, so have gesture map interfaces. After repeated performance of these gestures, our bodies start to remember them. In this way companies colonize our bodies and we no longer perform ourselves; we perform patents.<br />&nbsp;<br /><em>G.A.M.E. Night</em>&nbsp;is a space to improvise new body language by recombining the gestures and functions of Apple&rsquo;s patents. Three card games let players take screen-based movements beyond the screen into social and spatial communication. Successful players can record their new gesture-function pairs onto an analog surface - paper - to include it in a growing Library of Alternative Gestures.<br /><br /><strong>This event is on&nbsp;Sat 3/7 from 6-9&nbsp;pm</strong><br /><br />Tyler Calkin is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Los Angeles.

The exhibition will open onSaturday, March 14, 2015&nbsp;at 5130 W. Edgewood Place and will continue on view through&nbsp;April 25. An opening reception will be held on&nbsp;March 14 from 6:00pm until 8:00pm.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;">John Armleder, St&eacute;phane Kropf, John Tremblay, with guests Mai-Thu Perret and Blair Thurman</span>&nbsp;brings together the work of five artists united through common influences and friendship. The exhibition will take shape as a single immersive installation. As a mosaic of paintings and other wall-based works in which the conversations between the artists are as important as their discrete contributions, its eccentricities and delights celebrate the pleasures of collaboration and friendship, including above all the collaboration between object and viewer that is art's necessary fulcrum.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Recognized as one of the singular figures in postwar art, John Armleder has both identified and unraveled many of the major threads that make up contemporary aesthetic discourse. As a maker of performances, paintings, sculptures, installations, and works that defy such classifications altogether, he consistently upsets expectations about what art is and how it functions. Running through each of his projects is a deep respect for the energizing role that chance plays in art as in life.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">One of the exhibition's major features, a large-scale example from Armleder's ongoing Puddle Painting series, speaks to the incisive sense of play that characterizes his work. The making of these paintings involves pouring large quantities of several different kinds of paint on a canvas laid flat on the ground. Toys, glitter, and other sorts of bric-a-brac are often added to areas where the pooled paint has not yet dried, introducing still more texture, detail, and potential for unexpected juxtapositions. The canvas is then propped upright as the chemically incompatible materials interact and destabilize one another, and the dripping paints reshape the work's overall composition. The act of painting becomes one of establishing conditions and then stepping out of the way, so that the piece takes shape according to contingencies outside of the artist's control.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Such openness of spirit guides the exhibition and can be discerned in the works of each of the other four artists. Indeed, Kropf, Tremblay, Perret, and Thurman have worked with Armleder and helped him to realize projects over the years, as he in turn has acted as a lively supporter of their practices. This collaborative ethos takes pervasive material form in the stenciled wall painting that covers the gallery and provides the backdrop against which the other works in the show are seen. A found image of a bunch of kale with a disgruntled cartoon face is repeated throughout the space; each wall receives the pattern in a different color.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This "grumpy kale" motif sets a baseline of humor that suffuses the show as a whole. It also takes its place among the series of wall paintings that Armleder has created since the beginning of his career. By bringing the background into the foreground and doing away with the separation between art and the viewer's immediate experience of it in a given place, the wall paintings are born of the idea that art is not an isolated moment on a blank wall, but, like other things encountered in the world, a fluctuating part of what one sees.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Against this backdrop hang a genre-dismantling array of works that draw from the formal languages of painting, sculpture, literature, and science. St&eacute;phane Kropf, for instance, participates with paintings from a new series whose making involves the use of stencils cut with a laser plotter. Pushing this technology to its limits to create impossibly thin spirals, he then uses a spray gun to lay down swirls of acrylic paint. Because of their extreme optical complexity, the paintings appear to change depending upon where one is standing; accordingly, they resist attempts to document them photographically and celebrate the miraculous technology of the human eye. Emphasizing such acts of heightened looking in turn calls attention to the viewer's part in the production of artistic experiences.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For the artist, meanwhile, craft becomes a mode of response, a way of adapting to what the world offers, and a means of allowing materials to express their own intrinsic beauty and aesthetic interest. In this vein, John Tremblay has made new wall-based works in which shaped canvases are meticulously constructed to surround pieces of found scrap metal. The canvases are then covered with painted patterns that add purely visual rhythms to the tactile ones already in play. Even as Tremblay exercises control over his materials, the found object that gives rise to each work is ultimately "responsible" for shaping the setting in which it is presented, and the process of making the piece is one of constant interaction with a preexisting form. One is left with the feeling that art is the kind of essentially democratic activity that can begin with anything, anywhere.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The possibility for a casual encounter to turn into a meaningful experience also underlies the participation of the exhibition's "special guests." Like actors making cameo appearances in a movie, Mai-Thu Perret and Blair Thurman each contribute neon works that punctuate the installation, give added definition to its relationship with the gallery architecture, and accentuate the "grumpy kale" wall painting. In Perret's case, her neon's squiggle form is borrowed from a passage in&nbsp;<span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman</span>, 1759-1767; one of several moments when a non-verbal mark animates the pages of the classic novel, it conjures the freedom of a life lived without attachments, as well as the pitfalls associated with free-floating whimsy that exceeds logic or control. Thurman's piece, on the other hand, is comprised of a series of squares in a stepped arrangement, like the glowing fragment of an endless grid: as a corner built of many corners, it suggests that the rigors of geometry lurk everywhere, and that its abstract principles are always rooted in what is felt and seen.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">John Armleder (born 1948 in Geneva, lives in Geneva and New York) has been the subject of numerous solo museum exhibitions throughout the world.

While her images employ elements of place, they are also reconstructions that manifest personal perspectives or conceptual themes. In this way, she is a kindred spirit to Edward Hicks and his <em>Peaceable Kingdoms</em>, Giorgio de Chirico and his vacant metaphysical piazzas, and Ren&eacute; Magritte and his surreal scenarios. <em>On Reflections</em>, the title of Preston&rsquo;s new group of paintings, refers to her subject matter, but it also suggests her cerebral processing and interpretation of nature. The ponds at Descanso Gardens in Southern California and Monet&rsquo;s garden at Giverny, France serve as inspiration to her meditations. In fact, these gardens and the idea of gardens in general, are aesthetic re-creations, idyllic ideals, the Plato&rsquo;s Cave of Nature. Our expulsion from the Garden of Eden is symbolic of our disconnect with a Nature that we are perpetually attempting to re-establish. Within the artifice of a garden, Preston has chosen to focus on reflections, not the trees and plants themselves, but shimmering mirror images of them. As in Lewis Carroll&rsquo;s <em>Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There</em>, Astrid Preston&rsquo;s paintings explore the other side of the mirror, the reality that we construct in our minds. In this body of work, her handling of paint continues to evolve, absorbing elements of Milton Avery&rsquo;s washy daubs and Charles Burchfield&rsquo;s wiggly wormy lines. She has also introduced seemingly anomalous molecular-web balls that drift throughout her landscapes, suggesting the eye floaters in one&rsquo;s field of vision, or even our scientific attempts to understand the basic structure of all things.<br /> <br /> A reception for the artist will be held at Craig Krull Gallery on Saturday, March 7, from 4-6pm. A gallery talk with Astrid Preston will take place on Saturday, March 28th, at 10am (rsvp required).</p> Thu, 05 Mar 2015 00:38:25 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Group Show - University Art Gallery, UCSD - March 7th - May 1st <p>he University Art Gallery at UC San Diego is pleased to present&nbsp;<em>State Park</em>, on view from March 7 through May 1, 2015, with an opening reception on March 7 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br />A dynamic group of artists explore the concept of state parks as complex sites that exist, ostensibly, to preserve a location on account of its natural beauty, historic relevance, and recreational potential. State parks have also functioned as templates to examine how the U.S. thinks of, envisions, and exploits the outside. In many ways, state parks are neatly groomed physical manifestations of landscape paintings-rendered perfectly in greens and browns and providing an accessible, domesticated, and colonized wilderness. But, for many, they have unlocked a kind of egalitarian sublime and enabled understanding in the out-of-doors.&nbsp;This exhibition unpacks state parks as sites rich with conflict and complexities---where landscape, myth, identity, class, exclusivity, exploitation, wildness, tragedy, erasure, memory, leisure, spirit, holism, play, and adventure exert their individual and collective forces. The artists included in the exhibition turn over the show's namesake so that we might see what they've seen, done, and remember, or discover who has been excluded and what's been inadvertently missed.</p> Wed, 04 Mar 2015 19:56:20 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Jesse Benson - Michael Benevento - March 28th - May 23rd Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:46:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Giulia Piscitelli - Kayne Griffin Corcoran - March 21st - May 16th Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:40:33 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Kevin Appel, Carlos Bunga, Gianfranco Foschino, Veronika Kellndorfer, Lucia Koch - Christopher Grimes Gallery - March 21st - May 16th <div class="text"> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Christopher Grimes Gallery is pleased announce its forthcoming exhibition <em>Kaleidoscope: abstraction in architecture</em>. </strong>This exhibition brings together artists from different backgrounds that engage with the languages of abstraction and architecture through different media to achieve distinctly varied results. Included in the exhibition are works by <strong>Kevin Appel</strong>, <strong>Carlos Bunga</strong>, <strong>Gianfranco Foschino</strong>, <strong>Veronika Kellndorfer</strong> and <strong>Lucia Koch</strong>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">From its beginnings in the early 20<sup>th</sup> century the legacy of abstraction is rooted in social and political utopias. Today, abstraction as an artistic strategy has reinvented itself for the 21<sup>st</sup> century, and the fragmentation of form is a common denominator within the majority of the works featured in this exhibition. <strong>Kevin Appel</strong>&rsquo;s (United States) paintings explore the relationship between physical space, architecture and the painted image. Using photographs as a ground on which to build his painting, he applies layers of paint that act as screens, compressing the perceived space between the built environment and nature. The act of looking through one element to another, or the blocking of one impenetrable layer by another and mediating our perception of nature and our encounter with the exterior world has become a signature of his painting. Appel&rsquo;s work is in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, among others.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">While Appel&rsquo;s approach to abstraction is to collide several planes of visual information, <strong>Veronika Kellndorfer</strong> (Germany) reveals the subjectivity of space and the ephemeral nature of seeing. Her photographs of the glass facades of modernist architectural landmarks are silkscreened onto large glass panels. The works conflate internal and external environments and invite the viewer to uniquely experience their own surroundings. Kellndorfer&nbsp;has recently completed a site-specific commission for the Architekturmuseum, Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, where she is presenting large-scale works for the Lina Bo Bardi 100 survey show open through February 22nd. Her work is included in the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, CA, Hammer Museum Los Angeles, CA, and Pier 24 in San Francisco, CA, in addition to several European institutions.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Lucia Koch</strong> (Brazil) challenges the&nbsp;viewer's perception and experience of space using diverse tactics within architectural settings. In addition to a video and one of her large-scale photographs of the interior of a small coffee bag, Koch will present a wall structure made of aluminum and colored acrylic panels that filter natural light. Through planar interventions, the wall connects different spaces and environments. In 2016 Koch will be the subject of a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Carlos Bunga</strong> (Portugal) creates process-oriented works that refer to and intervene in their architectural surroundings. While using ordinary, unassuming materials such as cardboard and tape, the resulting finished works involve an extreme degree of aesthetic care and delicacy. For this exhibition he will preset a series of constructed box works that function at the intersection of painting and architecture. He is currently shortlisted for the Artes Mundi 6 Prize (January), where he has produced a major work for the exhibition of the participants at the Wales's National Museum of Art in Cardiff.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Gianfranco Foschino</strong>&rsquo;s (Chile) videos confront one's&nbsp;perceived&nbsp;distinctions between&nbsp;multiple&nbsp;genres including photography, painting and video. He sets up a fixed camera and captures the subtle movement that occurs in front of the lens. Filmed from a distance, the scene increases in intensity as the minutes pass by with no sign of the narrative one has come to expect from video. Foschino&rsquo;s work was included in SITE Santa Fe's Biennial, <em>Unsettled Landscapes</em>, and he has recently won the Silver Lion 2014 award in the 14th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale.</p> </div> Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:39:56 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list - ACME - March 21st - April 18th Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:34:13 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Eric Wesley - 356 Mission - March 8th 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Please join us on Sunday, March 8 to take part in a coloring event for all ages.

Photography, particularly as a digitized medium, embodies repetition. It also continues to be positioned as a useful means of recollection, an aide de memoir. For the philosopher S&oslash;ren Kierkegaard, repetition is enacted and accumulates forward in time, the opposite of recollection, a method of recovering that which exists back in time. Kierkegaard&rsquo;s dialectic offers a framework for examining how photography may reconfigure the temporal dimension. In what ways do artists working with photography contribute to the temporal conditions that define repetition and recollection? How do these artists engage temporality, through the production, reception, and circulation of their works?

Photography, particularly as a digitized medium, embodies repetition. It also continues to be positioned as a useful means of recollection, an aide de memoir. For the philosopher S&oslash;ren Kierkegaard, repetition is enacted and accumulates forward in time, the opposite of recollection, a method of recovering that which exists back in time. Kierkegaard&rsquo;s dialectic offers a framework for examining how photography may reconfigure the temporal dimension. In what ways do artists working with photography contribute to the temporal conditions that define repetition and recollection? How do these artists engage temporality, through the production, reception, and circulation of their works? What axis of time does photography propose when production today continues to accelerate the proliferation, duplication, and disposal of images? A selection of different practitioners will engage these questions at LA&gt;&lt;ART, advancing discussions surrounding photographic practices today, as well as issues of image production more broadly.&nbsp;</p> <div style="color: #222222; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8000001907349px; background-color: #ffffff;">&nbsp; <div style="color: #222222; font-family: arial,sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: justify;">This program at LA&gt;&lt;ART is organized in conjunction with the symposium,<br style="font-size: 12.8000001907349px; text-align: justify;" /> <a style="color: #1155cc; font-size: 12.8000001907349px; text-align: justify;" href="http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001s5Qs_SOgA2jaTFwCSqGBrUQ83AlF0aNQCeUPd80v4fj-sHRKueaTp1kauUnKa1rbmZPynef-DG8yo9v6T4aNzLUlN_3D1TJh-b53rPmgScsvQhgif4RcqrkpQKeCnYrxvkOuZLqYjUTJUcigvm5kKaE1uBPQwRpDTwti2WiJB2rSYt1KyPI6lPeVClAVUwXJijrKZaBrtXghxfkEkIQo8w==&amp;c=0BVUtQBa4U-bGAl42G8M6falFv0tXIPDLTDi543_Eclpzl9nlYkZAQ==&amp;ch=jy0BeXVfIbPVCenME3ddz_Yeaq5UPQ6ZgyPcbb65Y-u5CkafIe01dQ==" target="_blank"><strong><em>Photography and Philosophy</em></strong>,&nbsp;March 13 -14, 2015</a>&nbsp;at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and co-organized with&nbsp;<a style="color: #1155cc; font-size: 12.8000001907349px; text-align: justify;" href="http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001s5Qs_SOgA2jaTFwCSqGBrUQ83AlF0aNQCeUPd80v4fj-sHRKueaTp1kauUnKa1rbZmYhIaLNVTjNzTiSlCuc9jwMAVzjPwRMN-_ZnBO-6L_gMLQWhfwF1ToXswKToOLeWIfGuGQK2G8tN69q-UNmdnwU_I370mOWP8W8hRmmemA=&amp;c=0BVUtQBa4U-bGAl42G8M6falFv0tXIPDLTDi543_Eclpzl9nlYkZAQ==&amp;ch=jy0BeXVfIbPVCenME3ddz_Yeaq5UPQ6ZgyPcbb65Y-u5CkafIe01dQ==" target="_blank">nonsite.org</a>.</div> </div> Wed, 04 Mar 2015 16:20:04 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list
