When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the Americ an South \;considers the category of &ldquo\;outsider&rdquo\; art in relation to contemporary art and black life. Situating itself within cur rent art historical and political debates\, the exhibition features work by self-taught\, spiritually inspired and incarcerated artists\, alongside ot her projects based in performance and social-engagement\, as well as painti ng\, drawing\, sculpture and assemblage\, that make insistent reference to place. With the majority of work created between 1964 and 2014\, the exhibi tion brings together a group of thirty-five intergenerational American arti sts who share an interest in the American South as a location both real and imagined. Moving between a graphic sensibility\, an interest in creation m yths and the use of found materials and detritus\, the artists reference va rious classical tropes of blackness as sites of origin&mdash\;fantastical a nd performed\, important yet perhaps illusory.

A young ar tist that reflects on a fundamental act in the art: the look. By diverse me dia he explores the dialogue betweenmaterials of natural origin as graphite and wood\, that serves as a technique to speak of what is human from subje ctive codes in his relation with the media and with the multiplicity of the points of view of the spectator. \; \;He integrates elements from his personal mythology and from nature as testimonial symbols of contempora ry society. The work is an exploration of the interactions between techniqu es and formats that includes drawing\, painting\, stage resources\, install ation\, animation\, video-art and video-installation. He puts the spectator in a vigilant position before his will of contemplation. He has been selec ted in the official selection of the Biennial Tamayo 2006\, in the Scholars hip young Creators of the FONCA 2007 and in the residence Artist in Residen ce at 18th\, \;Street Art Center Los Angeles in 2008.

Yeelen will be exhibiting the American artist and consummate academician James B. Clover this September. Opening receptio n with the artist will be on September 13th 2014\; marking the a rtist's first solo exhibition in the U.S. in over 25 years.

\n

Clover&rsquo\;s work is an Alexander Calder mobile and jazz-infused Piet Mondrian wrapped into one. \; \; He has taken the best of Mode rn painting and sculpture and collectively created a style of his own that only a great artist and academician can. Paul Gauguin&rsquo\;s rejection of colonial life and gravitation towards nature are present. \; Wassily K andinsky&rsquo\;s musical inflections seep in. Even Constantin Brancusi's w itty aptitude for geometry is channeled.

\n

His latest s eries of work---deviating from the minimalist sculptures of which he is bet ter known---use basic iconography and scales of color to harken back to cre ation. Repetitive forms dance across the surface of his compositions like t hose in a carnival or ones seen in brief flashes of mystically woven child- like dreams. \;
