After Midnight: Indian Mod ernism to Contemporary India 1947/1997 presents a comparative study of art created in the wake of two defining moments in Indian history. The fir st\, Indian independence in 1947 was notable for the emergence of the Progr essives Artists Group. The second was 1997\, which marked 50 years of India &rsquo\;s independence\, a period that coincided with economic liberalizati on\, political instability\, the growth of a religious right wing\, as well as a newly globalizing art market and international biennial circuit\, in which Indian artists had begun to participate. The year 1997 also prompted a host of several important international exhibitions of Indian art around the world including the first Indian exhibitions in the United States: Out of India\, at the Queens Museum and Traditions/Tensions a t The Asia Society 1996-1997. Telling Tales: 5 Women artists from India \, held at the Victoria Gallery\, Bath\, UK was followed by Privat e Mythology: Contemporary Art from India\, curated by The Japan Founda tion in Tokyo\, 1998.

\n

After Midni ght will be the first exhibition large-scale examination of Indian art in the United States prominently featuring the Modern masters\, core membe rs of the Progressives including M.F. Husain\, S. H. Raza\, F.N. Souza\, an d their extended circle of friends such as Ram Kumar\, Krishen Khanna\, V.S . Gaitonde\, Tyeb Mehta\, and Akbar Padamsee.

\n

The contemporary section of the show brings to the fore pertinent issues that have taken place from 1997 to the present. These include a crit ique of globalization-at-large\, affected by the changing economy that fore ver altered the nation. Not only did this prompt economic growth in India t hat created opportunities for growth and progress\, but at the same time it brought several setbacks such as the exploitation of labor and rural migra tion to name a few.

\n

After Midnigh t\, while a large-scale survey show itself\, adopts a critical positio n against blockbuster exhibitions of Indian art that have undertaken tokeni st representation of India\, or have attempted to illustrate the nation thr ough its art. Instead of capitulating to the market forces and the need of the West to &ldquo\;present&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;frame&rdquo\; Indian cultur al practices\, the intent of the exhibition is to dismantle the stereotypic al nationalist presentations of India. The exhibition attempts to produce a nd present art practices\, dialogues\, and questions emerging from an India n context to be embraced within the larger global framework of modernity. After Midnight resists being mapped or firmly placed with the bound aries of the nation. Instead\, it looks to draw on a new critical body of k nowledge that has arisen from a new globalism\, in which everything seems t o be in the process of being redefined\, including individual freedom and r ights and the idea of India itself. Most importantly the exhibition disband s positions that are no longer useful\, to allow for an expanded\, inclusiv e dialogue of art and culture to emerge. The exhibition includes work in a variety of media and consists of both existing works and new commissions.\n

After Midnight: Indian Modernism t o Contemporary India is curated by Dr. Arshiya Lokhandwala\, who curre ntly lives and works in Mumbai.

\n

Precu rsors to this exhibition include a two-day symposium (Fall 2012) and a fort hcoming publication After Midnight: Indian Modern and Contemporary Art\ , 1947/1997. Contributors include: Rakhee Balaram\, Rina Banerjee\, Ak eel Bilgrami\, Rebecca Brown\, Luis Camnitzer\, Doryun Chong\, Iftikhar Dad i\, Salah M.

Marlborough Gallery is pleased to announce Pentimento Series\, a solo exhibition of seventeen pigment prints by Robert Weingarten. The exh ibition will open at Marlborough Gallery on January 6 and will continue thr ough January 31\, 2014. This is the artist&rsquo\;s fourth exhibition with Marlborough Gallery\, and the first exhibition at the gallery&rsquo\;s main 57th Street space.

\n

A pentimento describes changes and alterati ons in an artwork\, marked by traces of previous work made by the artist th at are often only visible using advanced imaging technologies. In Penti mento Series\, Weingarten layers historic imagery of iconic sites alon gside contemporary images. Through the appropriation of archival images\, W eingarten shines light on the historical events that once took place in the se recognizable locations that are now often dramatically altered\, or on o ccasion\, amazingly similar. Continuing with the technique of digital compo site images first developed in his 2011 series Portraits Without People \, Robert Weingarten&rsquo\;s Pentimento Series explores the ever-changing meaning of place\, as latent images of the past subtly emerge in the present.

\n

In Paris (1940)\, rows of cars are seen drivin g toward l&rsquo\;Arc de Triomphe in the present day\, as German troops sim ultaneously march along the Champs É\;lysé\;es to seize control of Paris. Weingarten layers the iconic wartime photograph with a Disneylan d advertisement featuring a gleeful child. From the boy&rsquo\;s vantage po int\, it appears he is watching the troops descend down the streets. With s harp juxtapositions\, Weingarten creates a portrait of a place\, showing no t just its current state but its growth and history. The noted scholar and curator\, Colin Westerbeck\, explains the effect as Weingarten working &ldq uo\;his way through the history of photography in order to arrive at his un ique vision of photography as history.&rdquo\;

\n

In Guernica (1937)\, the modern day city is framed within a sepia vignette of post-war ruin s. Through the use of translucent layers\, the past looms\, monochromatic a nd ghostly\, directing the eye towards a vision of the present moment.

\n

A nother depiction of a seemingly familiar and idyllic spot is Hoovervill e (Central Park\, NY 1931). Taken at the Great Meadow in Central Park\ , the site&rsquo\;s former life as a Hooverville reveals a harsher aspect t hat in the wake of Occupy Wall Street reverberates today more than ever. Hi storic photographs of shanty town residents create an uneasy tension with l eisurely sunbathers enjoying the park.

\n

Born and raised in Brookly n\, New York\, Weingarten&rsquo\;s work is the result of his abilities as a n autodidact combined with an intense passion for photography. Weingarten&r squo\;s first exhibition with Marlborough was the 6:30 A.M. series \, begun in 2003\, in which Weingarten captured an identical ocean view fro m his home in California at the same time each day for one year. The series chronicles the changing colors of the sky\, water and land to create\, as publisher Hatje Cantz described\, &ldquo\;magnificent\, vividly colored ima ges reminiscent of abstract realism paintings.&rdquo\; This interest in pho tographic abstraction became more pronounced in the Palette Series (200 4-2007) and later\, Portraits Without People (2011)\, in whic h Weingarten produced photocompositions of images representing the subject& rsquo\;s biographical detail\, akin to Andy Warhol\, or Arman&rsquo\;s Portrait Robot series\, in which he created portraits by selecting the items that best express the individual.

\n

Since the 1990s\, Robert Weinga rten&rsquo\;s work has been shown in over eighty exhibitions in the United States and abroad. The artist&rsquo\;s work is included in a number of perm anent collections including the George Eastman House\, the J. Paul Getty Mu seum\, the Museum of Fine Art\, the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art\, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. He hold s the distinction\, Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society\, and has been the recipient of several awards in photography. Robert Weingarten&rsquo\;s work is the subject of numerous monographs and publications.

\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">An illustr ated catalogue will be available at the time of the exhibition.

The Directors of Marlborough G allery are pleased to announce the New Year with the forthcoming exhibition of new paintings by the English artist\, Clive Smith. Entitled Beak\, Claw\, Hand\, Brush it will be Smith&rsquo\;s fourth show with Marlbor ough and his first since his highly successful show\, Pleasuring My Gui lt\, at Marlborough Chelsea in 2008.

\n

Known for his outstanding work in depicting the human figure and in p ortraiture this show will reveal a startling change of course. The subject of the new paintings is for the most part the depiction of bird&rsquo\;s ne sts which the artist has painted on a large scale. Intrigued by the intrica te and complex structure of nests\, Smith has used this subject to create i mages that are at once realistic and abstract. Smith states\, &ldquo\;I had turned to the still life\, still working in my observational representatio nal technique and simplified my subject matter for it to become equally abo ut abstraction.&rdquo\;

\n

The exhibitio n will consist of seven paintings ranging in size from twenty-two by twenty two inches to sixty-five by sixty inches. In some of the works Smith incor porates home references such as wall paper or ceramic dishware. As in all h is work Smith&rsquo\;s painting is noted for its tonal clarity and an allur ing brushwork that is as much a part of the form as it is the content. Four paintings are variations of Beak\, Claw\, Hand\, Brush in which t he artist zooms in on nests and their interweaving forms from various persp ectives with backgrounds that range from neutral to cobalt blue. Smith stat es\, &ldquo\;There is a simpatico between the build of my paint and the phy sical structure of the bird nests.&rdquo\; Two other works in the show were inspired by Carel Fabritius&rsquo\; 1654\, The Goldfinch\, which was on loan from the Hague&rsquo\;s Mauritshuis to The Frick last season. S mith has painted two engaging paintings\, each with a goldfinch perched dra matically dead on the edge of what appears to be a cut circle into the line n canvas to reveal wallpaper depicting flowers and branches on the wall on which the painting hangs.

\n

In regard t o his intention behind these works\, Smith says\, &ldquo\;I want to underst and a subject through the empathetic medium of painting. I have been using the found bird nests to explore and to imagine what it might feel like to b uild the nest through my brushstrokes\, using the source material to direct and inspire my painting. With these paintings I can be both representation al and abstract in an organic exploration of form and space.&rdquo\;

\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Smith was born in 1967 in St. Albans\, Engl and. He studied painting and drawing at the Arts Students League in New Yor k from 1995-97. In 1998 he won the BP Portrait Award&rsquo\;s Third Prize a t London&rsquo\;s National Portrait Gallery\, and in 1999 he received First Prize. His first show in New York was at Marlborough Chelsea in 2000. The artist lives and works in New York City.

\n

The exhibition with be accompanied by a fully illustrated brochure.

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the representation of Jiří\; G eorg Dokoupil in the United States. The gallery will present an ex hibition of new works by the artist titled New Paintings from January 8 &ndash\; February 7\, 2015 at 515 West 27th Street. This is the artist&rsquo\;s first solo show in New York in over two decades.

\n

Compris ed of large-scale works on canvas from the artist&rsquo\;s Soap Bubble Paintings series\, the exhibition demonstrates Dokoupil&rsquo\;s conti nuously varied experiments with non-traditional media and chemical processe s. As a founding member of the Cologne-based Mü\;lheimer Freiheit and J unge Wilde (&ldquo\;Wild Youth&rdquo\;)\, a group of young artists in the l ate 1970s\, he rejected the reductive\, austere\, and unapproachable nature of Minimal and Conceptual Art during this time in favor of a more animated style and saturated palette.

\n

The fir st Soap Bubble Paintings were developed in the early 1990s by creating alch emical compounds fusing pigment and soap in various proportions. Dokoupil s tages dynamic areas of tension between chemistry and art as the traces\, no w consisting of soap-lye enriched with metallic pigments and diamond dust\, accumulate in the form of two molecular layers and result in translucent b ubbles. The resulting organic forms settle on the canvas with calculated sp ontaneity\, displaying holographic tendencies and shifting perspectives. Se eking to reinvent traditional painting techniques\, Dokoupil&rsquo\;s pictu res are aesthetically bold and dynamic yet conceptually rigorous.

\n

Jiří\; Georg Dokoupil was born in Krono v&mdash\;former Czechoslovaki&mdash\;in 1954. In 1976 he studied at the Aca demy of Fine Arts\, Cologne and attended classes at the Universities of Fra nkfurt and New York&rsquo\;s Cooper Union. His work is in the collections o f Neue Galerie\, Berlin\; Staatsgalerie Stuttgart\; The National Museum of Contemporary Art\, Seoul\; Kunstmuseum Horsens\, Denmark\, The Rubell Famil y Collection\, Miami\, FL\; Socié\;té\; General Collection\, Pa ris\; Migros Museum\, Zurich\; and Centre Georges Ponpidou\, Paris. He live s and works in Berlin\, Germany.

Tapestries might conjure up im ages of medieval castles\, unicorns and other mythical beasts\, but a new e xhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum weaves a fascinating picture of how t he art form has evolved in the past 70 years.

\n

Contemporary International Tapestry highlights the work o f three generations of artists from nine countries who are elevating tapest ry to a whole new level of technical and aesthetic excellence. The exhibiti on opens Jan. 11\, 2015\, with a reception from 2 to 4 p.m. featuring talks from artists from around the world. Everyone is welcome to attend.

\n

&ldquo\;At the Museum\, \;visitors can a ppreciate in intimate settings all aspects of the broad scope of today&rsqu o\;s tapestries and the individuality of their makers\,&rdquo\; said Carol K. Russell\, curator for the exhibition and a leading expert in the field. &ldquo\;There is no sameness of imagery\; no stiffness of the noble class\; no disconnect from present-day life and concerns. \; People\, animals\ , symbols\, abstractions &ndash\; and even new ways of visualizing a famili ar thought or theme &ndash\; are brought to life in the hands of artists fr om various cultures and countries. &ldquo\;

\n

The exhibition featuring 39 artists will fill three of the four Muse um galleries\, includes loom work by some of the most renowned artists work ing today\, among them:

\n\n

&ldquo\;We hope visitors w ill take away a new perspective on an ancient art form\,&rdquo\; Russell wr ites. &ldquo\;Tapestry can and shall endure through the centuries\, though its messages have become more personal. The art form has indeed evolved and become its truest self in the hands of individuals.&rdquo\;

\n

Other artists featured in the exhibition are: Jo Ba rker\, Helga Berry\, Rebecca Bluestone\, \; Elizabeth J. Buckley\, Soyo o Hyunjoo Park Caltabiano\, Alla Davydova\, Annelise De Coursin\, Susan Edm unds\, Alex Friedman\, Ina Golub\, Barbara Heller\, Susan Hart Henegar\, Si lvia Heyden\, Dirk Holger\, Peter Horn\, Constance Hunt\, Susan Iverson\, R uth Jones\, Aino Kajaniemi\, Jane Kidd\, Lialia Kuchma\, Christine Laffer\, Ewa Latkowska-Żychska\, Bojana H. Leznicki\, Lore Lindenfeld\, Susan Marti n Maffei\, Julia Mitchell\, Janet Moore\, Jon Eric Riis\, Ramona Sakiestewa \, Micala Sidore\, Elinor Steele\, Sarah Swett and Linda Wallace.

\n

To commemorate and celebrate this exhibition\, Russell has written a new book\, Contemporary International Tapestry\, to be released by Schiffer Publishing early next year featuring image s and information about the artists included in the exhibition.

Hasted Kraeutler is pleased to announce\, Waiting: Selections from Erwin Olaf: Volume I &\; II\, a major exhibition of Erwin Olaf&rsquo\;s artworks. Organized to celebr ate Aperture&rsquo\;s release of the new monograph Volume II\, fol lowing the 2008 debut of Volume I. The exhibition is an abbreviate d retrospective for the internationally celebrated artist\, beginning Janua ry 8 and running through February 28\, 2015.

\n

Hasted Kraeutler has worked with Dutch artist Erwin Olaf (b. 1959) since 2005\, and was the first gallery to represent his work in North Ameri ca. Now a prominent name\, Erwin Olaf has gained global recognition designi ng the Dutch side of the Euro coin in 2013\, and winning the 2011 Johannes Vermeer Award\, among other accolades. Known for stunningly stylized work t hroughout which a provocative tension reigns\, Olaf employs high polish to both perverse and eerily seductive effect. \; A compelling frisson is g enerated in the space between his superficially sleek surfaces and the dept h of emotion they convey\; between their expressive power and their formal silence. Every work Olaf produces is characterized by an almost overpowerin g energy of potential and poise\, hovering in a place where all action is m erely suggested or insinuated.

\n

Wa iting unites a careful selection of images culled from the astounding collection contained in both of Aperture&rsquo\;s volumes. It also marks th e worldwide unveiling of the new series\, Waiting\, which includes recent photographs and a related video installation&mdash\;functioning\, t herefore\, both as the collective title for Olaf&rsquo\;s latest work and a s an apt description of his production throughout recent decades.

\n

The exhibition is anchored by a split-screen v ideo installation that occupies a room conceived specifically for it\, and features a poignant musical score created in close collaboration with a com poser over the course of six weeks. Drawing on the shapes and shadows of fi lm noir\, the piece depicts a striking young woman with a sharp black bob a s she sits at a round table in a restaurant\, waiting for someone. Pictured from a different angle on each of the two screens\, she appears elegant an d self-possessed\, at first\, but as the moments pass with no sign of her d ate\, her patience frays. Viewers are forced to wait with her&mdash\;and as she grows restless\, we do as well. With no indication of how this story w ill end\, we watch the muscles in her face contort and strain as disappoint ment settles around her\; we experience\, along with her\, the slow and ago nizing process of disillusionment\, our hope shattered along with hers. The music is the only sound we have\, our only hint of time&rsquo\;s passing&m dash\;and its harmony progresses like a requiem for moments lost.

\n

Exhibited alongside the installation\, the pho tographs explore the experience of waiting&mdash\;a psychological state tha t Olaf has described as occupying &ldquo\;an odd place in between two e motions that is quickly disappearing\, as everybody now has a phone or an I Pad that connects them to the world.&rdquo\; We see evidence of this c reeping torture mapped across beautiful faces\, as they eventually crumble under the weight of devastation. As with all of Olaf&rsquo\;s work\, it is here\, in the moments where nothing explicitly &ldquo\;happens\,&rdquo\; th at the majority of life takes place.

Buddhist Art of Myanmar will be the first exhibition in the West focusing on works of art from c ollections in Myanmar. The exhibition comprises approximately 70 spectacula r works&mdash\;including stone\, bronze and wood sculptures\, textiles\, pa intings\, and lacquer ritual implements&mdash\;from the fifth through the n ineteenth centuries. Artworks include objects created for temples\, monaste ries\, and personal devotion\, which will be presented in their historical and ritual contexts.

Wo rks will be on loan from the National Museum of Myanmar in Yangon and Naypy idaw\, the Pagan (Bagan) Museum\, the Kyauktaw Mahamuni Museum\, Sri Ksetra Museum\, and the Kaba Aye Buddhist Museum\, as well as works from public a nd private collections in the United States. The exhibition is organized by guest curators Donald M. Stadtner and Sylvia Fraser-Lu in conjunction with Adriana Proser\, Asia Society&rsquo\;s John H. Foster Senior Curator for&n bsp\;Traditional Asian Art.
