It is part of a summer curatorial exchange between City Limits and VACANCY. An exhibition by Amy Garofano/Ross Simonini and an installation by Tim Sullivan, curated by City Limits, is currently on view at VACANCY in Los Angeles.</p> <p class="font_8"><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><br />Barnett Cohen</a>&nbsp;(b. 1978 Cape Town, lives and works in Los Angeles) employs a wide-range of media&mdash;sculpture, installation, video, photography, writing, and works on paper&mdash;that serve as meditations on the space between the absence and the presence of the body. Much of his work is rooted in a long-term study of the shifting nuances of language, especially within the context of theatricality. Cohen&rsquo;s on-going interest in the relationship between props, sets, language, and space inform both his practice and his involvement in PSSST that he co-founded with Jules Gimbrone in June 2016. Barnett Cohen received a BA in English Literature from Vassar in 2001, an MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 2014, and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2012. His work has been exhibited at venues including Human Resources, Los Angeles; Vox Populi, Philadelphia; The International Center for Photography, New York; Cirrus Gallery, Los Angeles; The Torrance Art Museum, and La Galerie SEE Studio; Paris.</p> <p class="font_8">&nbsp;</p> <p class="font_8"><a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Jules Gimbrone</a>&nbsp;(b. 1982 Pittsburgh, lives and works in Los Angeles) is an artist and composer that asks how social performance is codified, captured, and transmitted. Using a variety of recording and amplifying technologies&mdash;in addition to materials such as clay, ice, and even the ambient sound of past performances&mdash;Gimbrone investigates how sound travels through space, bodies, and language as a way of exploring hidden or sublimated gendered systems. Gimbrone received a BA from Smith College in 2004 an MFA in Music Composition from California Institute of the Arts in 2014. Gimbrone has been exhibited at venues including Human Resources, Los Angeles; Vox Populi, Philadelphia; FLAX Fahrenheit, Los Angeles; Cuchifritos Gallery, New York; MoMA PS1, New York, and Park View Gallery, Los Angeles. Gimbrone is the Artistic Director and Co-founder of PSSST, a non-profit art space in Los Angeles.<br /><br /></p> </div> Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:30:13 +0000 Dan Grayber, Craig Dorety - Johansson Projects - August 5th - August 5th <p class="p1"><strong>What does it take for an object, or a human,&nbsp;to maintain its normal state? What does it take to change it? These interconnected questions are at the core of Johansson Projects&rsquo; upcoming exhibitions &ldquo;Maintenance&rdquo; and &ldquo;Gradient.&rdquo;</strong></p> <p class="p1">In &lsquo;<strong>Maintenance</strong>,&rsquo;&nbsp;<strong>Dan Grayber</strong>&nbsp;creates machines that are strangely human in a particular sense: their main objective is to keep themselves afloat. The delicate creations, housed in glass cases like peculiar specimens under scientific examination, held in stasis, their entire existence devoted to maintaining equilibrium. Through the sinewy apparatuses, Grayber alludes to the Sisyphean nature of human existence, as well as the contemporary obsession with "convenient" appliances that in reality create as many problems as they fix. And yet, despite the critiques embedded within them, the sculptures ultimately exist as extravagant answers to simple questions. If you have ever watched the sun rise, you know that light is not just a hue, nor a shade, and not even a tone. It is the natural agent that stimulates seeing, what makes things visible, allowing the world to be at once felt and understood.</p> <p class="p1">In &ldquo;<strong>Gradient</strong>,&rdquo;&nbsp;<strong>Craig Dorety</strong>&nbsp;explores our ever-shifting relationship to the properties of light, crafting pseudo-sunsets that mimic the gradient of day passing into night. Inspired by Johannes Itten&rsquo;s writing, Josef Albers&rsquo; painting, and Isaac Newton&rsquo;s research, Dorety&rsquo;s sculptures are color-theory-in-action: exploring the ethereal properties of light, shadow, and time by providing them physicality and weight. The abstract works warp the viewer&rsquo;s perspective as hues morph atop shapes within shapes, using electronics and animated light to mirror the shapeshifting illusions natural light provides every day.</p> Fri, 22 Jul 2016 00:17:25 +0000 Frank Morbillo - Sculpturesite Gallery - July 21st - August 20th <p>July 16 - August 20, 10:30 - 5:30 Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon</p> <p>Sculpturesite Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of new sculptures by artist Frank Morbillo on view at the gallery from July 16 to August 20, 2016. Morbillo's mastery of his materials and processes is demonstrated in the steel, glass, stainless steel and bronze works on display. The simultaneous release of the latest short film in Sculpturesite's video series Inside the Sculptor's Studio also features Frank Morbillo with insightful footage of the artist at work in his New Mexico studio.<br /><br />The exhibition Frank Morbillo: New Works displays a selection of recently completed sculptures from pedestal size to garden scale. Frank Morbillo's abstract sculptures emanate from his experience of the Southwest landscape; not in a descriptive, representational way, but rather as he bears witness to the sustained and dramatic effects of time on his environment. In them, one can see Morbillo's continued observation of the stark landscape and climate of the American Southwest and of our human traces on this ecosystem. Morbillo's close studies of his environment has led him to incorporate greater contrasts and textures in his work over the last twenty years, further emphasizing the connection between nature, art and humankind in the natural landscape.<br /><br />Artist Frank Morbillo recently welcomed Sculpturesite owners Brigitte Micmacker and John Denning to his studio in New Mexico and we produced a fascinating short film in our video series spotlighting Sculpturesite Gallery artists: Inside the Sculptor's Studio. For this unique inside look, visit our website under the tab Exhibitions to see Frank Morbillo at work and get more insight into his background and process. Watch as he works on several of the sculptures now in the show at various stages of development: from curving the flat sheets of metal into the desired shapes to expertly applying a multi-layered patina to a small bronze. This is an incredible chance to see first-hand how some of your favorite sculptures are made!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thu, 21 Jul 2016 22:54:27 +0000
