1301PE is pleased to announce Brain Multiples at 25\, a survey exhibition featuring multiples by artists that have influenced or worked with Brain Multiples. While the works select ed span a broad range of categories\, they all articulate the respective ar tist&rsquo\;s common approach to the multiple as a possibility\, rather tha n an afterthought.

\n

Artists in the exh ibition include Edgar Arceneaux\, John Baldessari\, AA Bronson\, Andrea Bow ers\, Angela Bulloch\, Fiona Connor\, Meg Cranston\, Kate Ericson and Mel Z iegler\, Gretchen Faust\, Fischli/Weiss\, Katharina Fritsch\, Ann Veronica Janssens\, Mike Kelley\, Rachel Khedoori\, Martin Kippenberger\, Paul McCar thy\, Jorge Mendez Blake\, Jorge Pardo\, Philippe Parreno\, Sigmar Polke\, Ana Prvacki\, Ed Ruscha\, Jason Rhoades\, Dieter Roth\, Katy Schimert\, Jes sica Stockholder\, Thaddeus Strode\, Diana Thater\, Lincoln Tobier\, Rirkri t Tiravanija\, Rosemarie Trockel\, SUPERFLEX\, Fischli/Weiss\, Franz West a nd Pae White.

\n

Founded in Los Angeles in 1991\, Brain Multiples publishes and distributes artists&rsquo\; multipl es and books. Brain Multiples&rsquo\; early multiples with such artists as Angela Bulloch\, Diana Thater\, Meg Cranston\, Gretchen Faust\, Thaddeus St rode\, Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler\, Jorge Pardo\, and Paul McCarthy provi des a remarkable insight into some of the themes and concerns that defined the spirit of art making in the 1990s. This spirit continues with artists\, such as Fiona Connor\, Ana Prvacki and Jorge Mé\;ndez Blake.

\n

The exhibition also includes artists who ins pired Brain Multiples creation and the basic philosophy of &ldquo\;ideas be st expressed in multiple form&rdquo\;. The exhibition celebrates the differ ent ways in which artists have conceptually and formally embraced the multi ple as a vocabulary within their respective oeuvres &ndash\; whether to que stion the original/copy dichotomy\, to explore the interdependence of aesth etics and utility\, or to extend earlier performative events into objects t hat are re-activated by the viewer&rsquo\;s participation.

Fast Forward: The Architecture of William F. Cody (1916 &ndash\; 1978) marks the archit ect&rsquo\;s 100th birthday and celebrates his seminal contribution to mode rn architecture. Before graduating from USC in 1942\, Cody had already dist inguished himself as an expert draftsman and designer while working for Cli ff May on housing developments in Los Angeles. An invitation to design a ho tel in Palm Springs brought Cody to the desert in 1946 where he remained ac tive until his death in 1978. From breakout jobs like the Del Marcos Hotel (1946)\, to inventive country club concepts like the Eldorado (1957)\, to h ouses for celebrities\, Cody&rsquo\;s designs defined cutting edge\, midcen tury living. His work is inextricable from Palm Springs\, the Bay Area\, an d the American Southwest\, and although his aesthetic is often referred to as &ldquo\;Desert Modernism&rdquo\; his architectural range was broader and more diversified. Cody&rsquo\;s international imprint can be seen in impor tant commissions in Mexico\, Cuba\, and smaller projects in London. This ex hibition honors the full scope of this work through rare examples of his ma sterful color renderings of personal sketches and architectural commissions \, photographs of now-lost structures\, and examples of vanguard building s ystems that included beams and roof slabs so thin that his buildings seemed to defy gravity. While his architecture was disciplined and technically in novative\, Cody was no rationalist. His love for entertaining was mirrored in his love for social spaces rich with patterns\, texture\, color\, and ar t.

\n

In this exhibition\, we honor Cody &rsquo\;s lifelong support of education by working collaboratively with Pro fessor Don Choi&rsquo\;s architecture students at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Based on their archival research of the William F. Cody Papers housed at t he Kennedy Library\, the students are creating contemporary interpretations of Cody&rsquo\;s innovations in environmental systems\, typography\, and f urniture and lighting design. Through their experiments with new digital te chnologies students will be able to realize Cody&rsquo\;s expressionistic d esigns in ways nearly impossible 50 years ago.

\n

Fast Forward: The Architecture of William F. Cody is org anized for the A+D Museum by curatorial team of Jo Lauria\, Catherine Cody\ , Dr. Emily Bills\, and Dr. Don Choi.

Craft and action resonate in
< em>Ellen Lesperance\, Helen Mirra\, Traversing

\n

Pasadena\, CA &ndash\; The Armory Center f or the Arts is proud to present Ellen Lesperance\, Helen Mirra\, Traver sing\, an exhibition that features new paintings and a recent interact ive project by Lesperance\, and an international\, intergenerational weavin g project organized by Mirra. The exhibition has been organized for the Arm ory by guest curator Cassandra Coblentz\, with generous support from The An dy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Pasadena Art Alliance. The exhibition is on view in the Armory&rsquo\;s Caldwell Gallery from June 5 through September 11\, 2016. A reception\, free and open to the public\, wi ll take place on Saturday\, June 4\, 2016 from 6-8pm.

\n

Through their works\, Ellen Lesperance and Helen Mirra bo th consider the complex relationships we as individuals have to the physica l and political landscapes we navigate. Each approaches her practice with a similarly poetic tone and critical consciousness. They share an interest i n the material of textiles and the structural grid as well as a tendency to create work within carefully derived conceptual systems and parameters. Fu rthermore\, for both artists\, walking plays a central role in their art.&n bsp\;

\n

Despite their affinities\, how ever\, Mirra and Lesperance approach these concepts and activities in strik ingly different ways. In this exhibition\, the metaphor of traversing also refers to the idea of moving across the space between ideas and perspective s. The presentation of their projects together generates a dialogue between their ideologically distinct positions and subjectivities. Seen together\, the projects offer an opportunity to compare and contrast approaches to si ngular\, specific\, and intimate physical experience versus public\, shared experience.

\n

Ellen Lesperance\, H elen Mirra\, Traversing highlights another conceptual underpinning of the overall project: the notions of dialogue and exchange as they relate to artistic production and exhibition curating. An accompanying publication d ocuments these dynamics and poses questions about how we can move beyond bi nary models of conversation\, collaboration and the nature of making and ex periencing art.

explored by THEMODELINGAGENCY

\n

 \;

\n

Pasadena\, CA &ndash\; The Armory Cent er for the Arts is proud to present THEMODELINGAGENCY: TEKTITE &nbs p\;&ndash\;reflux\, an exhibition of new works by THEMODELINGAGENCY\, a collaboration bet ween artists Nick Herman and Christopher James. Conflating experimental art with scientific method\, the drawings\, paintings\, sculptures\, and video displayed here utilize the environment of the lab and strategies familiar to field work to produce alternative results to an existing body of scienti fic research. In doing so\, these objects and images (re)frame the oppositi onal relationship between utility and art\, the objective and subjective\, and aesthetics and knowledge. The exhibition is on view in the Armory&rsquo \;s Mezzanine Galleries from June 5 through September 11\, 2016. A receptio n\, free and open to the public\, will take place on Saturday\, June 4\, 20 16 from 6-8pm. The exhibition has been organized by Irene Tsatsos\, the Arm ory&rsquo\;s Gallery Director/Chief Curator\, with generous support from Th e Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

\n

During the Spring of 2013\, THEMODELINGAGENCY took up residence a t the Virgin Islands Ecological Research Station (VIERS)\, located on the r emote south side of the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The facilities there had been built to support the 1969 project Tektite\, a NAS A experiment in undersea living and working envisioned as a model for the f easibility of con­\;ducting research in space. While at VIERS\, THEMODEL INGAGENCY investigated both the research undertaken by the marine scientist s occupying the undersea habitat as well as the concurrent NASA-funded beha vioral study conducted on the submariner scientists from above. Enacting a kind of aesthetic reproduction of these tiered projects and utilizing metho dologies and materials employed in conducting the original research\, THEMO DELINGAGENCY offers a consideration of the context and contingencies of how knowledge is produced.

\n

According to the artists\, the strategy of modeling is fundamental to scientific inquiry \, but it is also familiar to artistic practices that employ process-based experimentation. Herman and James emphasize that while scientists use model s to describe and account for phenomena\, artists use modeling to embod y phenomena and so accordingly\, the kind of knowledge produc es differs. In scientific modeling\, data is gathered through controlled ob servation and the knowledge that is produced is considered objective. In co ntrast\, the subjective\, experimental strategies of artists create the con ditions for unpredictable outcomes for reasons that may have more to do wit h achieving a sense of emancipation from those uncertainties than an unders tanding of them.

Blum &\; Poe is pleased to present Los Ang eles-based artist Shio Kusaka&rsquo\;s second solo exhibition at the galler y.

\n

For this presentati on\, Kusaka establishes a narrative via a body of work comprised of varied shapes\, textures\, sizes\, techniques\, and motifs. \;Ceramic pots car ved to resemble wood grain\, porcelain beach balls\, pots painted with grid s and lines\, and miniature porcelain animals\, can all be understood as a response to ceramic traditions.

\n

Installed in the three main-floor galleries\, on a seemingly cont inuous pedestal over one hundred feet in length\, Kusaka&rsquo\;s installat ion calls for each work to be considered within the context of the collecti ve whole. While each pot does function as a stand-alone work\, a certain rh ythm emerges as individual works gesture to the whims of form and content o f surrounding works.

\n

T his exhibition is accompanied by the first in an ongoing series of catalogu es documenting a selection of Kusaka&rsquo\;s artworks\, inspired by Japane se pottery reference books. This first volume focuses on works from 2014&nd ash\;2016. It is published by Karma\, New York and distributed by D.A.P./Di stributed Art Publishers\, Inc.

\n

Shio Kusaka (b. 1972\, Japan) lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial\, Whitney Museum of America n Art\, New York\, and has been exhibited throughout the world.

Emerging in the late 1960s\, \;Grossen&nb sp\;sought to relinquish the traditional tools and methods of textile and f iber art\, instead utilizing a free-hand braiding and knotting technique al lowing for greater freedom and spontaneity in her process. \;

\n

Grossen \;quickly began exploring material mass\, scale\, \;and repetition to attain three-dimensionality and&nbs p\;break the paradigms \;of her medium\, \;which had \;reductiv ely \;defined the genre as decorative. \;

\n

Curator \;Jenelle \;Porter describes her practice: &ld quo\;Grossen&rsquo\;s \;knotted and plaited rope sculptures eschew the four edges that delimited traditional tapestry\, and boldly enter the third dimension by hanging from the ceiling or unfolding directly onto the floor . \;Grossen \;pushes beyond this initial rupture with the rectangle and the wall to explore the weight of her material and its response to gra vity\, an investigation that aligns her art with broader artistic debates t aking place in New York and elsewhere.&rdquo\; \;[1]&n bsp\;

\n

At an imposing thirty feet  \;wide\, \;Contact III \;is \;composed of seventeen kn otted \;sections \;of rich\, orange \;manila rope \;and is& nbsp\;the largest in the \;Contact \;series \;&ndash\;  \;one of \;Grossen&rsquo\;s \;earliest explorations of vertica l repetitions. Hovering above the floor\, the suspended \;mass \;is a paradoxical exercise that \;simultaneously \;employs and defies gravity\, creating \;both \;tension \;in the fiber \;and&nb sp\;an impression of lightness\, fluidity\, \;and \;grace.

\n

Described by curator Nancy Neumann as a &ldqu o\;fringe under a large microscope\,&rdquo\; the installation was originall y created for \;Fiber Works: The Americas and Japan\, a group exhibition on textile art at the National Museum of Modern Art\, Kyoto and Tokyo in 1977. \;The work \;was \;later \;included in the e xhibition \;OLD TRADITIONS \;/ \;NEW DIRECTIONS \; curated by Rebecca A.T. Stevens \;at the Textile Museum\, Washington\, DC \;in \;1981. \;Contact \;III \;will \;b e one of the focal points of \;Grossen&rsquo\;s \;upcoming solo exh ibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York\, in the fall of 2016.

\n

Franç\;oise \;Grossen  \;(b. 1943 in Neuchâ\;tel\, Switzerland) lives and works in New York C ity. Recent group exhibitions include \;Revolution in the Making:&n bsp\;Abstract Sculpture by Women\, 1947 &ndash\; 2016\, \;currentl y on view at Hauser Wirth &\; \;Schimmel\, Los Angeles. Past exhibit ions include \;Fiber: Sculpture 1960&ndash\;Present\, which wa s held at the Institute of Contemporary Art\, Boston and traveled to the&nb sp\;Wexner \;Center for the Arts\, Columbus\, OH and the Des Moines Art Center\, IA (2014&ndash\;2015). \;Grossen&rsquo\;s \;work \;ha s been acquired by \;international public and private collections\, inc luding the Metropolitan Museum of Art\, New York\; the \;Renwick Galler y\, \;Smithsonian \;American Art Museum\, Washington\, DC\; and the State Hermitage Museum\, Saint Petersburg\, Russia. \;Grossen \;is the recipient of The 2016 American Craft Council Award.

Blum &\; Poe is pleased to present a collaboration between artist Richard Prince and the paragon of ma rijuana counterculture press\, \;HIGH TIMES \;magazine.

\n

Well known for his penchant for outside r aesthetics and subculture iconography\, Prince works with \;HIGH TIMES \;for the first time\, lending original compositions from hi sHippie Drawings \;series of the late 1990s/early 2000s for th e September 2016 special \;Trippy \;issue. These drawings exemplify Prince&rsquo\;s practice of investigating the American collective unconscious and pursuing dualities &ndash\; he mines the marginalized and commonplace\, and then filters this content through a discerning\, expressi ve\, and painterly tradition. Extraterrestrial\, polychromatic figures wiel ding joints smirk at their viewer\; wild and joyful gestures that recall th e artwork of children or channel the renderings of a psychedelic trip &ndas h\; Prince says of this series\, &ldquo\;Being funny is a way to survive.&r dquo\;[1]

\n

I n conjunction with the launch of the special issue\, Prince has curated a c ollection of historical \;HIGH TIMES \;covers traversing t he publication&rsquo\;s history from 1974-2014. The artist&rsquo\;s practic e of gleaning inspiration from news and popular media well documented\, her e Prince selects covers from the magazine&rsquo\;s archives that reflect ce rtain subjects commonly found in his oeuvre. On the occasion of the special edition issue launch\, rolling papers designed by the artist will be produ ced\, along with a marijuana strain. This presentation has been organized i n cooperation with Green St. Agency.

\n

Richard Prince was born in the Panama Canal Zone in 1949 and lives and work s in New York.
