The paper addresses several of the ways in which this inherently participatory and ultimately ephemeral artwork mediates a Brazilian legacy of art practice that sought to get beyond the traditional limitations of the aesthetic object and the institutional framework of  art.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="color: #000000; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Alexander Alberro, Virginia Bloedel Wright Professor of Art History at Barnard College and Columbia University in New York, is the author of Conceptual Art and the Politics of Publicity (2004). He has published in a broad array of journals and exhibition catalogues, and edited a number of books on contemporary art, most recently The Ruin of Exchange (2012), Institutional Critique (2009), and Art After Conceptual Art (2007). Alberro's areas of specialization are modern and contemporary European, U.S., and Latin American art, as well as the history of photography. He is presently completing a book-length study of the emergence and development of abstract art in Latin America, and beginning to work on a volume that explores the new forms of art and spectatorship that have crystallized in the past two decades.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span color="#4d4d4d" face="arial, helvetica, sans-serif" style="color: #000000; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small;">Sponsored by the Cantor Arts Center Membership Executive Council</span></p> Fri, 03 May 2013 09:52:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Group Show - SOMArts Cultural Center - May 16th, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The Department of Art + Architecture at The University of San Francisco presents <em>IMAGINARIUM, </em>an exhibition of BA thesis projects from Design + Fine Arts.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition is presented at SOMArts through participation in the Affordable Space Program, which provides below-market rental space, production and publicity assistance to nonprofit organizations.</span></p> Thu, 18 Apr 2013 16:30:57 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Group Show - Southern Exposure - May 16th, 2013 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM <p>SoEx's Youth Advisory Board is a youth-driven after-school program where students collaborate with professional artists to produce an art exhibition at SoEx. This Spring, YAB is producing an experimental video project with teaching artists Allison Leigh Holt and Jonathan Weisburst in conversation with another SoEx project: Difficult to Make Out. The YAB project, Out-Of-Order is the culmination of experimental processes and exercises across different media that explores ways of thinking about order.

Mentors nurture the youth’s creative ideas by offering support and guidance, helping to set and meet goals, and sharing skills, knowledge, and expertise through this year long program. The highly selective program seeks passionate and curious visual arts students in need of guidance, and pairs them with a professional artist in their field of interest. This program is designed and driven around the student artist’s interests and needs, as youth have studied painting, graphic novel production, photography, sculpture and spatial arts. Through these mediums mentors and mentees work together to share ideas, engage in research, and take their art practice to the next level.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This semester, pairs worked to develop a youth-driven group exhibition exploring the theme of growth, examining what artistic development looks like over a period of time. The ceremony will showcase the work of the youth members and be presented to the SoEx community along with YAB's final project.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Artist Mentors: Cal Cullen, Eliza Gregory, Veronica Graham, Jason Houck and Isaac Vazquez'</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Mentees: Maeve, Grace, Ubaldo, Amanda, Christian</p> Fri, 10 May 2013 18:01:09 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list - ArtPadSF Art Fair - May 17th, 2013 12:00 PM - 8:00 PM <h3>Hours of Operation</h3> <p>Friday, May 17th &amp; Saturday 18th<br />12:00PM – 8:00PM</p> <p>Sunday 19th<br />11:00AM - 5:00PM</p> <h3>Tickets</h3> <p>3 Day Pass $40<br />1 Day Pass $20</p> <h3>Exhibitors</h3> <div class="galleryList left"> <p>[ 2nd floor projects ]<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>Three Point Nine<br /> Collective<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>AMEX VIP//<br /> QUEENS NAILS PROJECTS<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>BASH Contemporary<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>beta pictoris gallery<br /> Birmingham, AL</p> <p>Blythe Projects<br /> Los Angeles, CA</p> <p>CES Contemporary <br /> Los Angeles, CA</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">Electric Works</span><br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p><em>Eve Fowler //<br /> Artist Curated Projects (ACP)</em><br /> Los Angeles, CA</p> <p>Gauntlet Gallery<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> </div> <div class=" galleryList middle"> <p>Charlie James Gallery<br /> Los Angeles, CA</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">Gregory Lind<br /> Gallery</span><br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>Jancar Projects<br /> Los Angeles, CA</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">Johansson Projects</span><br /> Oakland, CA</p> <p>Krowswork<br /> Oakland, CA</p> <p>gallery km <br /> Santa Monica, CA</p> <p>LUIS DE JESUS<br /> LOS ANGELES<br /> Los Angeles, CA</p> <p>Walter Maciel Gallery<br /> Los Angeles, CA</p> <div> <p>Paul Mahder Gallery<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> </div> <p><span class="gallerylink">Marx &amp; Zavattero</span><br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>The McLoughlin Gallery<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> </div> <div class="galleryList left"> <p>Mirus Gallery<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>moniquemeloche<br /> Chicago, IL</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">New Image Art</span><br /> West Hollywood, CA</p> <p>NIAD Art Center<br /> Richmond, CA</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">Spoke Art</span><br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>THE POOL NYC<br /> New York, NY</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">The Popular Workshop</span><br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">Toomey Tourell<br /> Fine Art</span><br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p><span class="gallerylink">Unspeakable Projects</span><br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>Steven Wolf<br /> Fine Arts<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> <p>Mark Wolfe<br /> Contemporary Art<br /> San Francisco, CA</p> </div> Fri, 10 May 2013 20:24:21 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Group Show - ArtPadSF Art Fair - May 17th, 2013 9:06 PM - 10:30 PM <p> </p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">ArtSlant, in cooperation with ArtPadSF, presents ArtSlant Afterparty &amp;&amp; &lt;Error 415&gt; New Media Award Installation, juried by new media artists and curators <a href="http://netartnet.net/" target="_blank">Anthony Antonellis</a>, <a href="http://www.nickbriz.com/" target="_blank">Nick Briz</a>, <a href="http://www.domain-gallery.net/" target="_blank">Manuel Fernández</a>, <a href="http://ani-gif.com/2.2/?13-compositions-by-yoshi-sodeoka" target="_blank">Daniel Rehn and Sarah Caluag (me+Sarah)</a>, and <a href="http://tumblropenarts.tumblr.com/" target="_blank">Annie Werner</a>.

This focused presentation mines the permanent collection, bringing together paintings, sculptures, and works on paper that demonstrate the inexhaustible variety and texture of the human form in art. Seeking to explore the polymorphous nature of the figure, <b>Ballet of Heads</b> puts into dialogue the Baroque canvases of Peter Paul Rubens, the American Regionalism of Thomas Hart Benton, the colorful near abstractions of Asger Jorn and Hans Hofmann, the sharp angles and loose contours of George Grosz and Max Beckmann, the tormented personages of Francis Bacon, and the humorous critique found in the drawings of Raymond Pettibon. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition takes as its point of departure the work of Nicole Eisenman, on view in <a target="_blank"><i>MATRIX 248</i>,</a> teasing out many of the threads found in her paintings and works on paper—a blending of seemingly oppositional categories such as social realism, abstraction, folk art, and popular comics—and contextualizing it in the process. Eisenman cites many of the artists included as important influences, such as Théodore Géricault and Pablo Picasso, while the work of more recent artists, including as Joan Brown, Abraham Walkowitz, and Sue Coe, share striking affinities to Eisenman’s own.</span></p> Sat, 09 Mar 2013 17:28:40 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list - Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive - May 17th, 2013 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p>Be among the first to encounter the work of seven promising artists as they embark on their careers.

All three are accomplished portrait painters in their own right and we are thrilled to see them join forces in a personal celebration of the fundamental pastimes enjoyed when being one with nature.</p> <p>Please join us on Friday, May 17<sup>th</sup> 7 to 9pm for the artist reception and a special live musical performance by the artists’ band, “Del Toro”.</p> Sat, 13 Apr 2013 20:44:22 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Kori Newkirk - Jessica Silverman Gallery - May 17th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Jessica Silverman Gallery</strong> is pleased to present a subtle, forceful exhibition of new sculptures and photographs by <strong>Kori Newkirk</strong>. Based in Los Angeles, Newkirk explores issues of the body, alienation and location. Made in 2013, these works are poetic meditations on the artist’s progress through a landscape of vibrant commerce and listless dispossession. They discover and interpret beauty in contested environments, seeking bliss in transition and transformation.</span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><i>Jet (Prototype 1) </i>(2013) is the largest of the five works in the show. The floor sculpture consists of hundreds of transparent spheres that range in size from a marble to a golf ball. The spheres consist of a space age material that has partially absorbed the artist’s bodily fluids (tears, sweat, and saliva), making <i>Jet (Prototype 1)</i> a conceptual self-portrait.</span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><i>Natter</i> (2013) is comprised of a long arc of tin cans mounted on the wall. Some of the cans are lined with multi-colored glitter while others reveal their existing metallic interiors. The shape alludes to a rainbow or skid, suggesting an ever-turning wheel, a broken circle, the glint in an eye and a speech bubble.</span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><i>Rhythm and Warmth </i>(2013) is an embellished photographic diptych portraying two upside-down television antennas against a cloudy sky. The dislocating image evokes myriad associations including antiquated technological twins, subverted communications, airy ornaments, and a world turned upside down by change.</span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">The exhibition also includes two works that evoke hands: a predominately black and white photograph of a paper towel with a sooty imprint of the artist’s right hand and a hanging sculpture that incorporates gloves, pigeon feathers, shoelaces and pennies. </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"> </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Newkirk has long explored landscapes. This time, human presences - particularly his own - are more significant. Always interested in the skin of things, Newkirk now delves deeper into the DNA of his forms. </span></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"></div> <div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Kori Newkirk</strong> (born 1970) received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993 and his MFA from the University of California, Irvine in 1997. He has had solo exhibitions at the Studio Museum in Harlem, LAXART and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. Notable group exhibitions include the 2006 Whitney Biennial, DAK’ART (the Dakar Biennial, Senegal, 2006), and the traveling exhibition, "Uncertain States of America" (2005-6). Newkirk’s work is in the collections of the Hammer Museum, MCA Chicago, MOCA Los Angeles, the Art Institute of Chicago, Henry Art Gallery (Seattle) and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).</span><i></i></div> Mon, 22 Apr 2013 14:57:13 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list Christoph Roßner - Romer Young Gallery - May 17th, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Romer Young Gallery</strong> is pleased to present its second solo exhibition with German painter <strong>Christoph Roßner</strong>,<strong> <em>Kuriositätenkabinett</em></strong>. Roßner will exhibit a series of paintings and works on paper. There will be an opening reception for the artist on Friday May 17th, 6-9pm.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"><em>To me, the process of painting is not to be understood as a simple visualization of ideas but as the discovery of the idea itself… Searching for ambiguity is a pivotal concern of mine.</em></span><br /><span style="font-size: small;">- Christoph Rossner</span></p> <div style="text-align: justify;"><br /><span style="font-size: small;">Roßner's paintings exist in a dreamlike state, somewhere between abstraction and representation. Finding inspiration in his surrounding environment and the arrangement of objects such as hats, candles, ships, and things either found or invented, Roßner's mysterious and melancholic imagery deals with the tension between figuration and its process of alienation. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">Starting with a basic idea, Roßner repeatedly alters an image in a meticulous process of visual discovery, working until he considers it completely finished. Traces of the developmental process – such as overpainting, the insertion of drawings and the smearing of colors – remain deliberately conspicuous, conveying the production process to the viewer. These traces are essential to the work's impact. The process is slow and the paintings reveal their full effect when approached at the same speed, slowly. "My effort is using the means of painting in such a way that I can create an atmosphere of concentrated tranquility, otherworldliness and melancholia." </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">CHRISTOPH ROßNER was born in Zwickau Germany and currently lives and works in Dresden. His work has been exhibited at Galerie Axel Obiger and Kunstraum Bethanien in Berlin, Germany; Galerie Zanderkasten and Galery Treibhaus in Dresden, Germany, and dst.galerie Munster, Germany.</span></div> Thu, 09 May 2013 08:19:53 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/sf/Events/list
