On Stellar Rays in pleased to announce the release of \; INUTILE\, a limited edition artist's book by \;Liam \;Ever ett. On September 24\, On Stellar Rays will celebrate with a book reelease party.

The book features drawings by \;Everett that trace an d layer the forms of outdated hand tools\, found by the artist in a studio outside Toulouse\, France. Rust marks mix and stain the brittle sheets of a 60 year-old watercolor block found amongst the tools\, leaving indexical f ragments of now-obsolete utility\, pushed to the point of abstraction. Imag es are presented alongside texts by Bruno Tollon&mdash\;describing the hist ory and purpose of the tools&mdash\;and prose by Rabih Alameddine.

Co-published by On Stellar Rays\, Altman-Siegel Gallery\, San Francisco\ , and RITE Editions\, San Fransisco. 2015.

Artist&rsquo\;s Book. Fu ll color\, clay pigment printed. Hard cover. Stitch bound. Limited edition of 45 and 5 APs. Signed\, dated and and numbered.

On Stellar Rays is pleased to announce the opening of Julia Bland&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition with the gallery and in New York\, If You Want To Be Free.

\n

Bland&rsquo\;s large-scale works inco rporate painting and weaving\, exploring the structures and patterns that c ombine disparate elements into a whole. Ropes\, painted canvas\, and fabric s woven by the artist are stitched together\, forming boundaries that furth er bind the work &ndash\; warp to weft\, image to object. The surface is a visible record of Bland&rsquo\;s evolving and multi-faceted process.

\n< p>Bland utilizes abstraction to negotiate the space between geometry\, symb olism\, and representation. Shapes emerge &ndash\; an arrow\, a shelter\, a canyon\, a figure &ndash\; seemingly familiar\, universal\, and archaic.&n bsp\; While the compositions incorporate structures that imply pure or time less forms\, color and materiality evoke an embodied visual experience. Thi s contrast generates a transient exchange between subjectivity of personal memory and consciousness of the infinite or eternal. \;

\n

Julia B land (b. in Palo Alto\, 1986) received her MFA from Yale in 2012\, and her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008. In 2008\, she received the Natasha and Jacques Gelman Travel Fellowship to study Islamic art and S ufism in Morocco. \; Recent group exhibitions include On Stellar Rays\, New York\; Vox Populi\, Philadelphia\; Asya Geisberg Gallery\, New York\; Anna Kustera Gallery\, New York. She is currently a resident in the Sharpe- Walentas Studio Program.

Swiss Institute is delighted t o present the 2nd Edition of its Annual Architecture and Design Series entitled PAVILLON DE L&rsquo\;ESPRIT NOUVEAU: A 21st Century Sho w Home. Curated by Felix Burrichter\, the editor and creative director of award-winning architecture and design magazine PIN&ndash\;UP\, \;th e exhibition channels the visionary irreverence of Le Corbusier for a 21st century take on domesticity.

\n

When Swiss-born architect Le Corbusier participated in the 1925 Paris Ex position des Arts Dé\;coratifs\, his contribution &ndash\; the origin al Pavillon de l&rsquo\;Esprit Nouveau &ndash\; caused an uproar a mong the fair&rsquo\;s organizers. In a commercial trade show intended to f acilitate the promotion of the Art Dé\;co style\, his aesthetic was d ismissed as antithetical. In retrospect\, however\, Le Corbusier&rsquo\;s < em>Pavillon de L&rsquo\;Esprit Nouveau acted as a manifesto that intro duced revolutionary design concepts\, such as building standardization\, ma ss-production as it applies to furnishings and interiors\, and the mechaniz ation of the home. These ideas would resonate for decades to come\, largely influencing post-war housing schemes and dé\;cor throughout the rest of the 20th century.

\n

In h omage to the original Pavillon de l&rsquo\;Esprit Nouveau\, Burric hter&rsquo\;s exhibition acts as a conceptual show home for the 21st century. Ninety years after the original debuted in Paris\, this conte mporary PAVILLON DE L&rsquo\;ESPRIT NOUVEAU explores new modes of domesticity\, as well as innovation in furniture design\, where craft co-ex ists with computational expertise. The exhibition features over 30 internat ional designers and artists\, most of whom are participating with specially commissioned works. All featured pieces bear key elements in either fabric ation or material that highlight industrial \;progress \;made in th e last 15 years such as laser-cutting\, \;3D-printing\, advanced LED-te chnology\, non-woven textiles\, and ultra-light carbon-fiber.

\n

In addition to serving as a platform for new desig n\, PAVILLON DE L&rsquo\;ESPRIT NOUVEAU is also an interactive\, a rchitectural experience. Divided into softly delineated zones\, each increa sing in levels of privacy\, the exhibition design by architect and artist S hawn Maximo makes use of digital rendering technology and Chroma key compos iting. The 21st century show home incorporates scenarios of diff erent domestic environments\, exploring the blurred lines in a culture of d igital escapism and surveillance.

\n

In the characteristically confident words of Le Corbusier\, the Pavillon&r squo\;s 2015 iteration at Swiss Institute aims to capture &ldquo\;a tu rning point in the design of modern interiors and a milestone in the evolut ion of architecture.&rdquo\;

\n

The exhi bition will include works by:
Lindsey Adelman\, Nanu Al-Hamad\, Arand a\Lasch\, Alessandro Bava\, Josh Bitelli\, Camille Blin\, Laureline Galliot \, Konstantin Grcic\, Paul Kopkau\, Kram/Weisshaar\, Joris Laarman\, Max La mb\, Le Corbusier\, Piero Lissoni\, Philippe Malouin\, Shawn Maximo\, Jaspe r Morrison\, Jonathan Muecke\, Marlie Mul\, Ifeanyi Oganwu\, Leon Ransmeier \, Sean Raspet\, Jessi Reaves\, Guto Requena\, RO/LU\, Rossi Bianchi\, Juli ka Rudelius\, Soft Baroque\, Robert Stadler\, Ian Stell\, Katie Stout\, Eli sa Strozyk\, Studio Drift\, Patricia Urquiola\, Christian Wassmann\, Bethan Laura Wood.

Swiss Institute is pleased to present Spring\, the first institutional solo exhibition of New Yo rk-based Croatian artist Dora Budor (b. 1984). Through her work\, Budor con siders the representation of emotional and physical experience within the i deological subtexts of mainstream cinema. She focuses in particular on Holl ywood production methods and special effects\, where ideas transfer between states of materialization\, fictionalization and digitalization. Using cin ematic strategies of affect\, Budor composes sculptures and architectural i nterventions that organically incorporate screen-used cinema props. She cal ls this process &ldquo\;reanimation\,&rdquo\; acknowledging the objects&rsq uo\; fictional histories while re-contextualizing them in a second life.

\n

Conceived as a hybrid of heating infras tructure and blood vessels\, Budor&rsquo\;s sculptures at Swiss Institute w rap around architectural miniatures originally featured in the blockbuster films The Fifth Element\, Batman Returns\, and Johnny Mnemonic. These structures\, covered with artificial weathering\, dus t\, and dirt\, become real-life fossils of on-screen experiences. In acts o f architectural concrescence\, mutation\, and circulation\, the works hover on the edge of living as autonomous objects with death drives.

\n

Of the surrounding blackness\, Budor states: &ld quo\;Spurred by climate change\, bacteria have reappeared on some of the wo rld&rsquo\;s oldest mummies\, rapidly decomposing their ancient skin into b lack slime. Once understood as stable\, rigid and dead\, biological and eco logical forces have suddenly revived these deeply historical bodies in a Fr ankensteinian way &ndash\; a symbolic indication of the current moment.&rdq uo\;

\n

Dora Budor: Spring is t he second exhibition in the ONE FOR ALL series at SI. Building on Swiss Institute&rsquo\;s long history of providing a platform for emerging artists\, each show will be the artist&rsquo\;s first institutional solo ex hibition in the United States with a newly commissioned body of work specif ically created for the exhibition space. Swiss Institute is grateful for su pport from the VIA Art Fund\, Presenting Sponsor of the ONE FOR ALL series.

\n

Dora Budor (b. 1984 in Croa tia) lives and works in New York. Recent exhibitions include Inhuman at Fridericianum\, Kassel\, Germany (2015)\; DIDING &ndash\; An Inte rior That Remains an Exterior? at Kü\;nstlerhaus KM&ndash\;\, Hall e fü\;r Kunst &\; Medien\, Graz\, Austria (2015)\; The Architect &rsquo\;s Plan\, His Contagion and Sensitive Corridors at New Galerie\ , Paris (2015)\; Believe You Me at 247365\, New York (2015)\; and Flat Neighbors at Rachel Uffner\, New York (2014). Budor recently participated in panel discussions at the Judd Foundation and the Whitney Mu seum of American Art\, both in New York. She is a winner of the Rema Hort E merging Art Award (2014) and is co-director of the project space Grand Cent ury in New York.

Highlights of the show include a number of major works created in Berlin during this time\, such as Herbert Bayer\, The Lonely Metropolitan (1932)\, Max Beckmann\, Film Studio (1933)\; George Grosz\, M etropolis (1917)\; Raoul Hausmann\, Dada Triumphs (The Ex acting Brain of a Bourgeois Calls Forth a World Movement) (1920)\; Lud wig Meidner\, I and the City (1913)\; Lily Reich\, Collage (1930)\; Rudolf Schlichter\, Blind Power (1937)\, Georg Scholz\, Of Things to Come (1922)\, as well as major works by John Heartfi eld and Hannah Hö\;ch.

\n

This show will cover the city from various perspectives in order to demonstrate the d ramatic changes that occurred at this time. Berlin saw explosive growth and transformation\, as many were attracted to the burgeoning metropolis. Betw een 1871 and 1919\, the population of the city quadrupled\, and Berlin beca me the political center of Germany\, as well as the turbulent crossroads of the modern age. This was reflected in the work of artists\, critics\, dire ctors\, and writers of the time.

\n

As a n imperial capital\, Berlin was the site of violent political revolution an d radical aesthetic innovation. After the German defeat in World War I\, co llage and montage were conceived as appropriate forms to destroy the tradit ional bourgeois concept of art. The Berlin Dadaists were reflecting upon th e horrors of war&mdash\;the trauma of a mechanized conflict&mdash\;and the terrors of revolution and civil war. This new spirit was reflected in the a rtistic\, political\, and social statements of artists during the birth and formation of the fragile Weimar democracy.

\n

Between 1924 and 1929\, Berlin became the most "American" city in Eu rope\, and jazz\, advertisements\, and cinema played a central role in its development. The urban experience was expressed through works of art and th rough mass culture&mdash\;advertisements\, magazines\, photographs\, and po sters all boldly proclaimed the spirit of modernity. The concept of the "Ne ue Frau"&mdash\;the modern\, emancipated woman&mdash\;helped move the city in a new direction. The exhibition at the Neue Galerie includes evidence of all these shifts\, including fashion of the time.

\n

Finally\, Berlin became a hostile stage for political confron tation between the left and the right and was deeply affected by the econom ic crisis and mass unemployment at the end of the 1920s. The experiences of social and economic crisis and despair began to overshadow the "golden yea rs" of Berlin.

\n

The exhibition catalog ue\, published by Prestel Verlag\, provides a complete historical overview of the period. It examines subjects ranging from art and architecture to fi lm\, music\, fashion\, and the "New Woman." Dr. Peters serves as the catalo gue editor\, which features contributions from such scholars as Leonhard He lten\, Sharon Jordan\, Jü\;rgen Mü\;ller\, Janina Nentwig\, Dorothy Price\, and Adelheid Rasche. "Berlin Metropolis: 1918-1933" is made possib le in part by

Klein Sun Gallery is pleased to announce \;Civilized Landscape\, \;Ji \;Z hou&rsquo\;s first solo exhibition in the U.S.\, on view \;from \;S eptember 10 through October 10\, 2015.

\n

In his multimedia practice\, Beijing-based \;Ji \;Zhou \;init iates a critical dialogue between reality\, perception\, and possibility. T hemes from the artist's previous series of photography largely dictate and inspire these new works for \;Civilized Landscape. For example\, in the  \;Dust \;series (2010)\, photographs of organized landscapes cover ed in dust were conceived after a fire in the artist's studio. With the cli ck of his shutter\, he framed the still-settling ashes atop domestic object s\, creating an image dense with temporal dimensions and fine layers of sed iment. \;Ji \;Zhouhonors the quiet aftermath of the fire\, rather t han the trauma itself\, questioning the obvious forms of composition and do cumentation. His prior series\, \;Event \;(2007)\, examines a simil ar concept where the artist critiques the genre of documentary photography and the blurred lines separating fiction and nonfiction.

\n

Ji \;Zhou&rsquo\;s new photographic works for \ ;Civilized Landscape \;further subvert the object as a vehicle for visu al representation and interpretation\; maps and books become landscapes of possibility. The process tells as much of a story as the final image does:& nbsp\;Ji \;Zhou \;collects maps\, hand-sculpting them into peaks an d troughs to mimic mountaintops. He includes books that are assembled into cantilevered towers resembling city skyscrapers. These &lsquo\;rural&rsquo\ ; and &lsquo\;urban&rsquo\; illusions are then photographed\, further augme nting reality. As always\, \;Ji \;Zhou \;chooses to question ra ther than offer his own conclusions: What is civilization &ndash\; a constr ucted illusion created by man or an inevitable product of evolution? What i s the truly &lsquo\;civilized landscape&rsquo\;&ndash\; tautology or oxymor on? \;

\n

Ji \;Zhou \;was bo rn in Beijing\, China\, in 1970. He graduated with an MFA in Plastic Arts f rom the Pantheon-Sorbonne University in Paris\, France\, in 2005. His solo exhibitions include &ldquo\;Objectified Spectacle\,&rdquo\; Tang Contempora ry Art\, Beijing\, China (2013) and &ldquo\;In Situ\,&rdquo\; Ullens Center for Contemporary Art\, Beijing\, China (2008).
