ArtSlant - Openings & events http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/show en-us 40 Rafael Domenech - Fredric Snitzer Gallery - September 30th 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Fredric Snitzer Gallery is pleased to present <em>The List of Messier Objects</em>, Rafael Domenech second&rsquo;s solo exhibition at the gallery. <br /> <br /> <em>The List of Messier Objects</em> historically refers to a book or list of astronomical objects. The book first appeared in 1771 and it was completed in 1966 when the last objects were added. It functioned as a notebook where discoveries were added and recorded.<br /> <br /> Rafael Domenech utilizes<em> The List of Messier Objects</em> as idea, structure and tool to organize a sequence of artworks in space, forming a pattern where all the pieces presented have either physical or theoretical connections. The works function not only as individual pieces, but also as integral components of a larger system.<br /> <br /> Utilizing the city as the main source of materials, the artist investigates through observing, collecting and then reusing, the forces that define his interaction with the context.<br /> <br /> &ldquo;Found paper, plastic, metal, the little piece of newspaper, the black rock on the corner, a light bulb, orange, why is orange the most reproduced color, glue, 386 dollar, Plexiglas, 1/8 of an inch, grey, wood, 158 miles, a group pf palm trees, the studio, the streets&hellip;&rdquo; <br /> <br /> The exhibition displays an ongoing exploration on the idea of scale, space, surplus, system and geographical graphic identity. Each work explores the idea of space within itself, questioning basic parameters of form, inside/outside, and scale in relation to others and the human body. <br /> <br /> The artist's current output is rooted in ideas of system, surplus and contamination, mostly a result of a dedicated, investigative approach towards such topics. In this work, he has brought forth these notions to shape a series of pieces that examine formal connections that surfaced during fabrication. It is at this stage where a clear understanding forms on how materials affect and define the trajectory of an object.</p> Thu, 08 Sep 2016 17:13:31 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list - Armory Art Center WPB - October 6th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">This exciting multi-media exhibition features work by the new faculty members who will join the Armory Art Center starting this fall.

Standing, elongated, and statuesque forms of muted, pale colors suggest nebulous half-conscious states between wakefulness and sleep&ndash;near dream-like moments of reality and existence, a subject Clemente has explored throughout his career.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">These enormous paintings relate to Clemente&rsquo;s own heritage of Italian fresco painting, while realizing one of his ongoing objectives: &ldquo;My goal is to collect images and references from these traditions and connect them with the emotions from the present-day, and common experiences.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Influenced by his upbringing in Southern Italy, years living and working in India, and his later engagement with the 1980s New York art scene, Clemente&rsquo;s work is equally fragmented across place, time, and states of consciousness, and his subjects shift fluidly between non-western and religious iconography, mythological characters, modernist symbols and representations of animal and human figures. The body &ndash; and the female form in particular&ndash; has become an integral part of the artist&rsquo;s vocabulary and approach to exploring transitory states.</p> </div> </div> <div class="flex_column av_one_fourth avia-builder-el-11 el_after_av_three_fourth avia-builder-el-last column-top-margin"> <p style="text-align: justify;">Exhibitions and programs at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale are made possible in part by a challenge grant from the David and Francie Horvitz Family Foundation.

The Audrey Love gallery will exhibit curated works for auction sourced from BAC Resident Artists and beyond to inspire visitors and guests to hedge their bets with raffle tickets, all benefiting the BAC.

In the context of the show, the title suggests a satirical take on the surreal, deeply contrasted stands taken by the main political parties and followers in this political election that may have left us all bewildered.

Featuring 12 of the artist&rsquo;s recent films, <em>Samson Kambalu: Nyau Cinema </em>will be on view from November 23, 2016 &ndash; April 23, 2017. The exhibition is curated by Bonnie Clearwater, NSU Art Museum Director and Chief Curator.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A conceptual artist, ethnomusicologist and writer, whose work includes site-specific installations, video, performance art and novels, Samson Kambalu humorously challenges canonical ideas about the history of ideas, art and religion while exploring issues of identity and freedom of expression. Kambalu&rsquo;s work is informed by his Malawi culture, his fascination with German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and the Protestant tradition of inquiry, criticism and dissent.&nbsp; Kambalu screens his films in specially designed installations that complement the spirit of the films.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For his NSU Art Museum exhibition, Kambalu&rsquo;s installation will reference Thomas Edison&rsquo;s Black Maria, which was the world&rsquo;s first film production studio, located in West Orange, New Jersey.&nbsp; Like many of the early films produced at the Black Maria in the 19<sup>th</sup> century, Kambalu&rsquo;s films are brief, silent slices of life. The films combine humor and the act of play as an essential characteristic of the artist&rsquo;s Malawi heritage.&nbsp; As Kambalu notes, Nyau is a Chewa word for &ldquo;excess&rdquo; and making film &ldquo;becomes a way of escaping the limitations and conventions of everyday life, where the self is playfully re-conceived as part of a larger scheme of things.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Included in exhibition are Kambalu&rsquo;s films <em>Runner,</em> 2014; <em>Moses (Burning Bush);</em> 2015, <em>Lincoln</em>, 2015; <em>Lion Negative</em>, 2015; and <em>Lizard</em>, 2015; and others that specifically allude to American histories as they relate to the rest of the world, including Africa.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Born in Malawi in 1975, Samson Kambalu has degrees in Fine Art and Ethnomusicology from the University of Malawi, an M.A. from Nottingham Trent University, a Ph.D. from Chelsea College of Art and Design, and has held research fellowships at Yale University and the Smithsonian Institution.&nbsp; His work has been exhibited internationally, and has been featured at the Liverpool Biennial (2016), Venice Biennale (2015), Dakar Biennale (2016, 2014), and Whitechapel Gallery, London (2016), among other venues. He is the author of two award-winning novels: a memoir, <em>The Jive Talker or, How to Get a British Passport, </em>and <em>Uccello&rsquo;s Vineyard, </em>a fictional narrative of modern art set in the Middle Ages.</p> </div> </div> <div class="flex_column av_one_fourth avia-builder-el-8 el_after_av_three_fourth avia-builder-el-last column-top-margin"> <p style="text-align: justify;">Supported by the Wege Foundation</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Exhibitions and programs at NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale are made possible in part by a challenge grant from the David and Francie Horvitz Family Foundation.

Drawn from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections, which together make up one of the world&rsquo;s largest groups of works by Anselm Kiefer, the exhibition will include approximately 50 major Kiefer artist books, works on paper, paintings, and sculptures from the late 1960s to the present day. This is the first time that the majority of the Kiefer works from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections will be shown together to the public. The exhibition is organized by NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale in collaboration with the Hall Art Foundation, and is curated by Bonnie Clearwater, NSU Art Museum Director and Chief Curator.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">An opening reception with the artist will take place on November 28, from 6 to 8 pm.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Anselm Kiefer&rsquo;s work is uncompromising in its response to the disasters of World War II and other historical traumas. Born in Germany during the final month of World War II, Kiefer was among the first generation of German artists to address National Socialism, the war and the Holocaust. From the start of his career in the late 1970s to the present, he has focused on coming to terms with the past, specifically the feeling of collective guilt and the identification of historical, psychological and mythological conditions that contributed to the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Nazi Party.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Like German conceptual artist Joseph Beuys, with whom he studied at the D&uuml;sseldorf Art Academy, Kiefer confronts the past by referencing such myths as Isis and Osiris, the ancient Egyptian myth of destruction and regeneration, and the history of German philosophy and culture. He explores these subjects in large-scale, narratively complex layered paintings of oil and mixed media, enormous installations, and elaborate artist books and watercolors, into which he embeds symbolic references.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Featured in the NSU Art Museum exhibition will be works such as Kiefer&rsquo;s massive painting, <em>The Fertile Crescent</em>, 2009; his monumental landscape, <em>Winterwald</em>, 2010; imposing glass vitrine tableaux of organic and inorganic material such as <em>Jakob&rsquo;s Traum</em>, 2010; and important early watercolors and artist books.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The opening of NSU Art Museum&rsquo;s exhibition is timed with Art Basel Miami Beach and also coincides with the permanent exhibition of Kiefer&rsquo;s monumental installations at the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse in Miami, providing South Florida audiences with the opportunity for a unique immersion into the artist&rsquo;s work.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">NSU Art Museum&rsquo;s <em>Regeneration Series</em> is inspired by its renowned collection of Cobra art of postwar, avant-garde artists from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam and its growing role as a leading scholarly resource for the exhibition and research of art of this period.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>&nbsp;About Anselm Kiefer</strong><br /> Anselm Kiefer is among the best-known German artists working today. He was born in 1945 in Donasueschingen, Germany and has lived and worked in France since 1993. His numerous exhibitions include solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and The Royal Academy London, among others.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2013, the Hall Art Foundation opened a long-term installation of sculpture and paintings by Kiefer in a specifically repurposed 10,000 square-foot building on the campus of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art that will be on view through 2025. The simultaneous exhibitions at MASS MoCA and at NSU Art Museum together comprise the most comprehensive presentation of Kiefer works from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. In 2007, Anselm Kiefer became the first artist commissioned to install a permanent work at the Louvre, Paris, since George Braque, more than 50 years earlier.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>About the Hall Art Foundation</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Hall Art Foundation was founded in 2007 and makes available postwar and contemporary art works from its own collection and that of Andrew and Christine Hall for the enjoyment and education of the public.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Hall Art Foundation operates an exhibition space on a former dairy farm in Vermont. The site consists of a converted 19th-century stone farmhouse and three barns located in the village of Reading.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Hall Art Foundation has also formed an exhibition partnership with the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, in North Adams, Massachusetts, to present monumental outdoor sculpture, in addition to a long-term installation of sculpture and paintings by Anselm Kiefer. The Foundation also recently partnered with the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in Oxford, England to present a series of exhibitions of contemporary and postwar art.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Hall Art Foundation collaborates with other public institutions around the world to organize exhibitions and facilitate loans from its own collection and that of the Halls. As part of its educational activities, it has published, co-published and/or provided substantial financial support for the publication of about a dozen books relating to the exhibitions it has organized and co-organized.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Together, the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections comprise some 5,000 works by several hundred artists including Richard Artschwager, Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Olafur Eliasson, Eric Fischl, Joerg Immendorff, Anselm Kiefer, Malcolm Morley, A. R. Penck, Julian Schnabel, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol and Franz West.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> Thu, 08 Sep 2016 18:01:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/mia/Events/list Ugo Rondinone - The Bass - December 1st 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">The Bass presents a solo exhibition of the work of Swiss-born, New-York based artist, Ugo Rondinone. This is Rondinone&rsquo;s first solo museum exhibition&nbsp;in the United States, featuring monumental installations that span three decades of the artist&rsquo;s practice, from the late 1990s to the present. Covering&nbsp;the entirety of the museum&rsquo;s newly designed second floor across three exhibition spaces, <em>Good Evening Beautiful Blue</em>&nbsp;is a part of a multi-institution retrospective and makes it&rsquo;s U.S. debut with The Bass.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Referring concurrently to the natural world, romanticism and existentialism, the work of Ugo Rondinone encapsulates a &ldquo;mental trinity&rdquo; that has underpinned his art for thirty years.&nbsp;<em>Good Evening Beautiful Blue</em> envolves around three installations, which elaborate around the sensation of circularity, entropy, passivity and dreaminess. <em>Vocabulary of Solitude,</em> 2016, an installation of forty-five, life-size clown figures that are each named individually in the present-tense (sleep, dream wake, sit, stand, walk, shower), together describe a day in the life of a single man as he goes about his daily routine without leaving his home. A separate gallery presents <em>It&rsquo;s late and the wind carries a faint sound as it moves through the trees. It could be anything. The jingling of little bells perhaps, or the tiny flickering out of tiny lives. I stroll down the sidewalk and close my eyes and open them and wait for my mind to go perfectly blank. Like a room no one has ever entered, a room without doors or windows.

The exhibition features works from multiple series, and serves as the&nbsp;U.S. premiere of several significant works by the artist.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Rottenberg&rsquo;s practice focuses on elucidating the mechanics of late-stage, global capitalism by way of absurd and poetic comparisons. The centerpiece of the exhibition is&nbsp;<em>NoNoseKnows (Pearl Shop Variant)</em>, 2015, a video and sculptural installation that documents a group of laborers in China who harvest pearls from oysters, which first debuted at the 56th Venice Biennale last year.&nbsp;Her video installations begin with the historical conventions of cinema, but expand into the space of the gallery to evoke a feeling of being within the space of the image.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Mika Rottenberg (b. 1976 Buenos Aires, Argentina) lives and works in New York. Her work has been the subject of numerous solo presentations and galleries and museums in the USA and abroad, including Palais de Tokyo, Paris, FR; P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York, NY; Shishang Art Museum, Beijing, CN; The Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA; The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, IL; Andrea Rosen, New York, NY; Mary Boone Gallery, New York, NY; and Galerie Laurent Godin, Paris, FR.

This presentation marks the artist&rsquo;s second institutional solo exhibition in the United States, and his first on the East coast.&nbsp;As a self-described nomad, Tayou&rsquo;s&nbsp;practice is keystoned by organic and collaboratively formed installations and interventions. His material considerations are directly reliant on his immediate local and recent travels, incorporating various objects from the neighborhoods and region surrounding the exhibition space. Conceptually, his work focuses on the project of decolonization of histories and territories by way of the artist&rsquo;s personal trajectory, collaboration and inclusion.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Greeting visitors as they enter The Bass&rsquo; redesigned space is a newly commissioned, site-specific work by Tayou called <em>Welcome Wall</em>, composed of 75 animated LED signs, reading &ldquo;welcome&rdquo; is a wide array of languages. For his exhibition, Tayou creates&nbsp;an organic and collaboratively formed intervention with the museum&rsquo;s permanent collection. In the newly designed &lsquo;Open Storage&rsquo; gallery, Tayou presents his work alongside his own selection of objects from The Bass collection, creating a dialogue between contemporary art works and objects from the past. Tayou&rsquo;s concern for the decolonization of histories and territories aligns with the international and transient nature of Miami Beach and the impact tourism continues to have in shaping the city.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Pascale Marthine Tayou (b. 1966-67, Nkongsamba, Cameroon) lives and works between Ghent, Belgium and Yaound&eacute;. His work has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at museums around the world, including Mus&eacute;e Africain, Lyon, FR; Kunsthalle, Bregenz, AT; MACRO, Rome, IT; MUDAM LUXEMBOURG, LU; Malm&ouml; Konsthall, Malm&ouml;, SE; Kunsthalle Wien, public space Karlsplatz, Vienna, AT; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, FR; Kunsthalle Bern, Bern, CH; and Stedelijk Museum voor actuele Kunst, Gent, BE.
