&ldquo\;Landscape:&nb sp\;a fantasy of not belonging to the totality of life of a terrestrial exp anse\,

\n

traditionally taking the form:  \;you belong to us we\, do not belong to you.&rdquo\;

\n

- Robin Kelsey\, \;Landscape As Not Belonging \;

\n

 \;

\n

Landscape is one of few circumstances where the thing and a representation of the thing share the same terminology. It is this space and overlap that \;Excerpt from Location.........&nbs p\;investigates\, specifically which qualities of a place are highligh ted\, altered\, or lost when depicted through (or as) an object. \;

\n

Focusing on the surreal\, mundane\, and sublime landscapes that exist at the edges of more developed spaces\, the s how explores the translation of a view in fabric\, video\, and sculpture. W hether a video or a weaving\, information is always lost and added by the m ethod of representation\, i.e. pixels jumping\, a lens distorting\, the lin earity of a weaving\, or the limitations of the hand. \;

\n

The installation brings together textiles\, video p rojections and related objects (such as plants\, rocks\, or shelves) that w ork to create their own scene for the viewer to interact with&mdash\;a new landscape.  \;

\n

Erika Lynne Hanson  \;creates weavings\, videos\, and installations that connect diverse m aterials\, histories\, and places. Running through her work is a concern wi th the \;idea \;of landscape\; specifically how landscape exists\, by definition\, as a view or representation&mdash\;a space or scen e that can never be reached physically. Hanson received a MFA from Californ ia College of the Arts\, and holds a BFA in Fiber from The Kansas City Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited in various locations including Los A ngeles\, Kansas City\, San Francisco\, New York\, Iceland\, Chicago and Min neapolis. Hanson is a Charlotte Street Foundation Visual Art fellow and has been artist in residence at Real Time and Space in Oakland CA\, and The Ic elandic Textile Center in Blonduos\, IS. In 2012 she co-founded 1522 Saint Louis\, \;an experimental project space in Kansas City. Hanson is currently Assistant Professor of Fibers/Socially Engaged Practices at A rizona State University.

Little Big Man Gallery is plea sed to announce A Good Man&rsquo\;s Grave Is \;His Sabbath \, on view November 7\, 2014 through January 7\, 2015\, featuring the work of acclaimed British contemporary photographer Nick Waplington. The ex hibition presents two bodies of Waplington&rsquo\;s work that have been rec ently published as limited edition photography books\, Made Glorious Su mmer and Surf Riot. For this exhibition\, \;the photographs will be presented alongside a selection of the artist&rsquo\;s drawings\, and various memorabilia from Waplington&rsquo\;s collection of f anzines\, books\, records\, concert tickets and T-shirts that he collected from 1979 through 1986\, the period of time that relates to the photographi c works on view. The artist reception will be on Friday\, November 7 from 6 - 9pm with a DJ set by Waplington\, featuring music from his 7inch singles collection. A limited-run zine designed by the artist will also accompany the show.

\n

Made Glorious Summer is a compilation of photographs taken by Waplington between 1979 and 198 4\, the period when a storm of post-punk music swept across the United King dom. Bombarded by such things as politics\, women\, photos\, and records\, the young Waplington was eager to understand the world\, as well as himself . &ldquo\;I was figuring things out &ndash\; figuring the world out\, and f iguring myself out. How this period led me to create art is what is recorde d in the photos\, records\, and the odds and sods I kept from the period 19 79 to 1984\,&rdquo\; explains Waplington. This body of work also tells anot her story about that time\, and about the past and the future. The story of Waplington&rsquo\;s family and particularly of his father &ndash\; a man w ho centered his life on the idea of human progress.

\n

The black and white photos in Made Glorious Summer represent the artist&rsquo\;s earliest work. There are also a small number of color images taken during this period\, which also documents his family moving from Woking\, Surrey to Steyning\, West Sussex\, the work was concei ved in 2009 while Waplington looked after his father in the family home dur ing the final stages of his battle with cancer.

\n

Surf Riot captured the scene at Huntington Beach on Aug ust 31\,1986. On that morning Waplington had been planning to watch the OP Surf Pro Championships\, instead upon arrival to the event he discovered th at a massive riot had broken out amidst the event's estimated 100\,000 spec tators. Having only one roll of 24 exposure film\, Waplington documented th e chaos exploding around him in 25 concise frames. The photographs within < em>Surf Riot contradict the standard imagery associated with American surf culture from the 1980s. Unlike other youth revolts\, this surf riot be ars little in the name of protest\; it was merely a spontaneous eruption of violence just for the sport of it.

\n

W aplington is noted for capturing photographs of his family and friends\, of places and events that he has witnessed first hand. Made Glorious Summ er and Surf Riot are two bodies of work that connect the arti st&rsquo\;s distant memories and link them together in the mind of the view er.

Team (gallery\, inc.) is pleas ed to announce a solo show of work by New York-based artist Margaret Lee. E ntitled \;Reading Into Things\, the exhibition will run from 1 6 November 2014 through 25 January 2015. Team (bungalow) in located at 306 Windward Avenue in Venice\, CA. Concurrently\, our 47 Wooster Street and 83 Grand Street spaces in New York will house exhibitions by Andreas Schulze and Sam Samore\, respectively.

\n

Decont extualization serves as the fulcrum of Margaret Lee&rsquo\;s practice. Freq uently pairing readymades with alternately fabricated and hand-crafted obje cts\, the work consistently interrogates modes of display\, transforming th e act of presentation into a subject unto itself. The works employ their co ntext to generate meaning\; as artifice supplants substance\, questions of content are rendered irrelevant.

\n

Lee& rsquo\;s objects and materials are loaded with immediately identifiable ref erents\, all of which can be read as metonymic or metaphorical surrogates f or broader concepts like femininity\, masculinity\, commodity or self-refle ction. However\, her interest is not merely in evoking these notions\, but in interrogating the act of signification\, and the ways in which the viewe r receives and processes symbols.

\n

Rev eling in the detritus of established good taste\, Lee&rsquo\;s work intenti onally evokes many of the common trappings of contemporary art\, mimicking and appropriating the cliché\;d tropes relied upon by artists and the ir supporting institutions\, transforming objects of luxury into objects of ridicule.

\n

Margaret Lee has exhibited widely both stateside and internationally. She participated in the 2013 Ly on Biennale and the Hammer Museum&rsquo\;s 2014 Made in L.A. bienn ial. Recent shows include \;Margaret Lee/Emily Sunblad\, Off V endô\;me\, Dusseldorf\, New Pictures of Common Objects (with Trisha Baga\, Lucas Blalock\, Josh Kline and Helen Martin)\, MoMA PS1 and < em>Closer to Right than Wrong / Closer to Wrong than Right\, Jack Hanl ey Gallery. In 2009\, Lee founded the artist-run space 179 Canal\, and is c urrently a partner at the gallery 47 Canal. Lee lives and works in New York City.

\n

Lee was first included in the group show Parasitic Gaps\, curated by Miriam Katzeff\, at Team in 2013. This is her first solo exhibition at the gallery.

ACME. is pleased to present "L ocation\," a solo exhibition of new work by Los Angeles based artist Amy Ad ler. The show features life-sized drawings based on photographs taken by th e artist while location scouting for a film. In these oil pastel drawings o n canvas\, Adler turns to the behind the scenes process of filmmaking\, usi ng location shots of children's playgrounds as subject matter.

Amy Adler's works are well known for their interplay between drawing\, ph otography\, and film. Past bodies of work include photographs of her drawin gs. In this process\, the original drawing was destroyed and the final prod uct\, a unique photographic print of the drawing became the original\, ques tioning our notions of authenticity and originality. Since 2005\, Adler has inverted this process by displaying the original drawings\, but always in relation to film and photography. Adler's most recent work includes a short \, first person documentary exploring ancestry through the narrative of chi ldhood fantasy.

Amy Adler was born in 1966 and raised in New Y ork City. She received her BFA from Cooper Union\, her MFA in Visual Art fr om UCLA and her MFA in Cinematic Arts from USC. She has had one person show s at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles\, the Museum of Contemporar y Art San Diego and The Aspen Art Museum as well as galleries worldwide. He r project\, Amy Adler Photographs Leonardo DiCaprio\, was shown at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles in 2002. In the spring of 2005 Twin Palms Pre ss released a monograph of her work entitled\, Amy Adler Young Photographer . Her work is included in several permanent collections including The Broad Foundation\, Los Angeles\, The UCLA Hammer Museum\, LACMA and The Museum o f Contemporary Art Los Angeles. Amy Adler currently lives in Los Angeles an d is Professor of Visual Art at the University of California San Diego.
