The Contemporary Jewish Museum debuts an original kinetic sc ulpture\, Negev Wheel\, created by famed environmental artist and sculptor Ned Kahn (b. 1960\, Connecticut). A resident of the Bay Area for o ver thirty years\, Kahn is well known for creating installation works at th e intersection of art and science that explore\, mimic\, and play with phen omena found in nature\, and for his many years as a designer of several of the Exploratorium&rsquo\;s most popular displays.

\n

Negev Wheel is a colossal steel disk\, twenty feet in diameter\, that frames a rese rvoir filled with a mixture of glass beads and sand from Israel&rsquo\;s Ne gev Desert. As it spins\, avalanching sand organizes into wave patterns sug gestive of churning liquids. Often the two materials separate\, each flowin g in different ways. In the constant mixing\, unmixing\, and mixing again\, Kahn creates a mesmerizing piece that invites contemplation of unity and c omplexity\, change and permanence. \;

\n

Alongside the larger scul pture\, which is propelled by a motor\, Kahn offers a second\, smaller sand sculpture designed for public interaction.

This thematic exhibition brings together w ork from across the medium&rsquo\;s history &mdash\; from daguerreotypes to slide projections to video installations &mdash\; that consider the way ph otography&rsquo\;s complex and ever-changing relationship with time has ref lected and inflected our ideas about permanence and obsolescence\, history and memory. In a period of tremendous technological change\, this exhibitio n puts historical and contemporary works in dialogue to highlight the funda mental issues that have been central to the medium since its invention. The presentation showcases work by Julia Margaret Cameron\, Henri Cartier-Bres son\, Phil Chang\, Dawoud Bey\, Owen Kydd\, and Zoe Leonard\, among others\ , as well as Recordings #3 \;(At sea)\, a newly commissioned i nstallation by Jason Lazarus.

Jessica Silverman Gall ery South is a small temporary project space across the street fro m the main gallery\, which hosts \;potent shows of diverse kinds. Pleas e visit the main gallery first for \;access to \;South.

\n

The space opens \;with a mi ni-retrospective of work made between 1996 and 2013 by Tammy Rae Carland. & ldquo\;The relatively consistent thread in all of my work\,&rdquo\; says Ca rland\, &ldquo\;is an interest in personal and political disappearance and the desire to re-perform marginal histories and bodies.&rdquo\; Carland is influenced by Roland Barthes&rsquo\;s assertion that photography as a pract ice is born out of the theater as much as its siblings in the visual arts. She interrogates the act of appropriation\, treating the original as if it were a script that can be re-performed much like a play.

\n

Tammy Rae Carland (b. 1965\, Portland\ , ME) received her MFA from the University of California\, Irvine\, and was a fellow in the Whitney Independent Studies Program in New York. Carland&r squo\;s work has been exhibited in public institutions and biennials in New York\, Los Angeles\, San Francisco\, Berlin and Sydney\, and Istanbul. Her work is currently included in &ldquo\;Collected&rdquo\; at Pier 24. Carlan d is the provost of the California College of the Arts.

The critic and curator Philip Rawson\, an eloquent guide to the means and methods of drawing over the ages\, points out that until the Italian Quattrocento\, no European sculptor was supposed to be able to draw. In the medieval period\, only those sculptors who also worked in two dimensions drew habitually\; any other sculptor who needed\, say\, to show a client a proposed design hired a draftsman to make one. And when sculptor s began to make drawings (for their own use or to guide assistants)\, they tended to do so without thinking of the format of the paper as a frame to w hich the image should relate. Instead\, the image was generally treated as an independent motif\, composed of mutually related units and placed anywhe re on the sheet. In this approach\, the space of the paper outside the imag e was not incorporated into the design but functioned like the open\, empty space around actual sculptures. ... In contrast\, Rawson observes\, painte rs' drawings have tended to treat the usually rectangular format of the pap er as a frame to which the image content relates.

Gagosian Gallery is pleased to present &ldquo\;Plane.Site\,&rdquo\; a cross-generational exhibition of modern and contemporary artists organized by Sam Orlofsky to inaugurate the San Francisco gallery.

\n

&ldquo\;Plane .Site&rdquo\; explores the dynamic exchanges between drawing and sculpture\ , in the work of artists from the modern post-war period to the present day . To that end\, each participating artist is represented by a work in both two and three dimensions.

\n

In an essay to accompany the exhibition\, John Elderfield observes &ldquo\;Moving from the boundaries of two dimensions into free space\, artists may feel an obv ious thrill of escape\,&rdquo\; while noting that there is also &ldquo\;the less obvious but equally liberating escape from open space\, with its grip of the literal\, for the spontaneity of movement and freedom of illusion a ttainable in the haven of the two-dimensional.&rdquo\; Consistent with his observation\, many modern and contemporary artists have evaded the dictate of the rectangular frame\, allowing the drawn line to exist on different pl anes\, and eventually\, to descend from the canvas into three dimensions. I n stepping away from the drawn line on paper and into the heft and mass of three-dimensional sculpture\, such artists continued to negotiate the recta ngular plane\, even when composing in open space. \;

\n

Spanning multiple generations\, &ldquo\;Plane.Site&rdqu o\; reveals the shifting grounds of correspondence between two and three di mensions. Duchamp's readymade strategy by which an everyday object can atta in the status of art object predicates Joe Bradley's life-size cast-bronze vintage television set (2016) and Jasper Johns's lumpen Flashlight II (1958) modeled in papier-mâ\;ché\; and glass\, one of nine i terations of a single motif that he generated using approaches as diverse a s bricolage and bronze-casting. In contrast to the deadpan quiddity of thei r sculptures\, both artists exhibit a vivid quickness of touch in their dra wings.

\n

Cy Twombly's Untitled\, Le xington (2009) represents perhaps the most intimate\, intuitive aspect of his oeuvre. Composed with a painter's eye\, the sculpture compresses th ousands of years of dialogue between the object and its drawn representatio n. Twombly employed found materials in his three-dimensional work\, comment ing that his sculptures contain references to &ldquo\;crossing over.&rdquo\ ; A unique wood\, plaster\, and cardboard construction\, this sculpture has never been shown before. \;

\n

Just as drawn outlines expand the surfaces on which they are made\, sculptural contours\, both imaginary and real\, generate entirely new spatial relation ships. &ldquo\;Plane.Site&rdquo\; maps some of the mutually generative inte ractions of drawing and sculpture\, as lines drawn on paper extend to touch those described in space.

\n

&ldquo\;Pl ane.Site&rdquo\; features works by Louise Bourgeois\, Joe Bradley\, Alberto Giacometti\, Mark Grotjahn\, David Ireland\, Jasper Johns\, Roy Lichtenste in\, Bruce Nauman\, Giuseppe Penone\, Pablo Picasso\, Richard Serra\, Rober t Therrien\, Tatiana Trouvé\;\, Cy Twombly\, Andy Warhol\, and Rachel Whiteread.
