ArtSlant - Closing soon en-us 40 Jill Greenberg - ClampArt - October 12th, 2006 - November 11th, 2006 Wed, 15 Jun 2011 09:00:49 +0000 Christian Patterson - Yancey Richardson Gallery - October 27th, 2006 - November 25th, 2006 Mon, 04 Jan 2010 13:05:07 +0000 Group Show - BravinLee Programs - November 17th, 2006 - December 30th, 2006 Sun, 14 Dec 2008 08:43:49 +0000 Mary Mattingly - WhiteBox - December 29th, 2006 - January 3rd, 2007 <p><strong>Fore Cast</strong> is a clarion call anticipating the looming environmental catastrophy. Fore Cast is an interactive Opera, opening at White Box on December 19, 2006, at six o'clock pm. Fore Cast will transform White Box's space into a waterlogged, apocalyptic swampland, sound<i>scape</i>, and video<i>surround</i>. The opening and closing nights will feature live performances by <i>Mary Mattingly's Navigators</i>.</p> <p><br />Entering a water-filled and truncated landscape, viewers witness the land's predicted end-state, a reversion to its primeval condition and a topographical perspective of a sick new world. The marshy waterscape is the setting for the future of a civilization ensnared in an unceasing loop of WWIV, a war Albert Einstein foreshadowed as being fought with sticks and stones. With an unparalleled innate sense of intelligence, wit and craft, Mary Mattingly creates an installation explains the tragic outcomes of this hypothesized war in the not-so-distant future.</p> <p><br />Multiple video projectors arranged in a semi-circle fill the walls of White Box and present a "Fore Cast" that will loop for six days and one hour. (A new week, according to Mary Mattingly's proprietary uniform time scale, derived from ancient Assyrian and Babylonian astronomical methodology and translated to a system for future use.) The videos play continuously in White Box's waterlogged space. The main screen portrays WWIV, fought by six groups of combatants ---The World Economic Forum, The Council on Foreign Relations, Bechtel, Nestlé, The United Nations, and B.R.I.C.--- colluding to capture and assert political and economic control over a shattered and borderless world. The belligerents' leaders plot together in a corporate conference rooms, ultimately degenerating into intercontinental world-scale conflict fought with the weapons of Cain and Abel, the war unfolding in disastrous environments everywhere.</p> Sun, 10 Nov 2013 00:13:03 +0000 Brett Cody Rogers, Luke Dowd, Scott Myles, David Noonan, Giles Round - John Connelly Presents - November 30th, 2006 - January 6th, 2007 Tue, 21 Oct 2008 23:14:59 +0000 Group Show - International Center of Photography (ICP) Museum - September 14th, 2006 - January 7th, 2007 <p style="text-align: justify;">In a time of rampant natural disasters and urgent concerns about global environmental change, this exhibition demonstrates the ways in which the most interesting and engaging contemporary artists view the natural world. Shattering the stereotypes of landscape and nature photography, the thirty-nine international artists included in this survey boldly examine new concepts of the natural sphere occasioned by twenty-first-century technologies; images of destructive ecological engagement; and visions of our future interactions with the environment. Considering nature in the broadest sense, this exhibition reflects new perspectives on the planet that sustains, enchants, and&mdash;increasingly&mdash;frightens us.</p> Fri, 29 Nov 2013 16:32:40 +0000 Eneas Capalbo - Marisa Newman Projects - January 18th, 2007 - January 18th, 2007 A series of abstract paintings that borrows its' name from Gerhardt Richter abstract series.<br> Thu, 30 Oct 2008 02:32:56 +0000 Group Show - 303 Gallery - January 6th, 2007 - January 27th, 2007 303 Gallery presents “Brave New Year”, a group show to ring in 2007, that provides both optimistic and grim views of the future.

As the title states, this exhibition of inkjet reproductions of found and appropriated photos is drawn from Piller's extensive image archive. The archive contains tens of thousands of press images that Piller started to collect while employed at an advertising agency. His job was to ensure that their ads were properly placed within regional newspapers. However, the numbing task of endlessly scanning publications day in and day out became engaging when Piller started to clip and organize images from the newspapers. <br> <br> <em>Archive Peter Piller</em> contains a mixture of groupings from categories that emerged in the process of sorting these images, and it is through these categories that Piller's poignant and quietly tragic vision of everyday life becomes apparent. Yet, the meaningful moments were unintended by the original photographer. Piller says they're 'the kind of photographs that the photographer who took them can't even remember. They're shot one day, printed the next, and garbage the morning after'. <br> <br> The exhibition contains selections from Archive categories such as "Policemen Searching," "Vandalism," and "Projection Areas," which is a series of newspaper images that depict ambiguous desolate spaces, which the artists has chosen based on their potential for open interpretation, despite their original context as illustrations for topical newspaper articles. <br> <br> Archive Peter Piller also contains photos from his More Beautiful from Above series. This is a series of aerial photos of suburban homes in West Germany that were given to Piller by a firm that was hoping to sell the prints back to the homeowners, but failed (which they were planning on discarding). Piller subsequently archived and categorized the images into striking series such as homes that were built next to graveyards, and homes that were captured mid-carwash. </font> Sat, 25 Oct 2008 12:14:49 +0000 Yoko Kawamoto - ATM Gallery - January 10th, 2007 - February 10th, 2007 This show depicts realistic paintings of industrial trash and debris.&nbsp; Leftovers and unwanted waste of our industrial society.<br> Sun, 26 Oct 2008 09:45:56 +0000 Nina Bavasso - BravinLee Programs - January 11th, 2007 - February 10th, 2007 <p class="bodyReg">BravinLee programs is pleased to present <i>Botanizing on the Asphalt</i>, an exhibition of new works on paper by Nina Bovasso.</p> <p class="bodyReg">Nina Bovasso renders intense and euphoric explosions of color and form. Employing a strategy of layering and accumulating the most basic marks-- a dot, a line, color, shape and surface texture, Bovasso creates works where design and pattern seem to run amok. Her work achieves harmony through “everything happening at once.” The compulsive doodle is elevated to heroic proportions.</p> <p class="bodyReg">In Botanizing on the Asphalt, Bovasso uses the botanical format as a point of departure. Referencing Urpflanze, Goethe's concept of the archetypal plant, flora is used to symbolize the dynamic process of continual change. Bovasso’s interests lie in the representation of nature in the decorative arts and decorative arts as representative of cultures.</p> <p class="bodyReg">The paper is handmade abaca from the Dieu Donne Papermill.</p> <p class="bodyReg">Nina Bovasso is currently Artist-in-Residence at the University of Georgia, in Athens, GA. Her exhibition there, <i>The Cartographer's Podiatrist's Underestimation of a Melancholic Toe</i>, will open later this month. Bovasso is currently exhibiting new paintings at Gallery Inman in Houston, Texas and will have an upcoming solo project at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.</p> Wed, 29 Oct 2008 16:30:21 +0000 Miles Coolidge - Casey Kaplan Gallery - January 12th, 2007 - February 10th, 2007 Sat, 25 Oct 2008 11:31:40 +0000
