Barnett Cohen
 \;(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\;th at serve as meditations on the space between the absence and the presence o f 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. Cohe n&rsquo\;s on-going interest in the relationship between props\, sets\, lan guage\, and space inform both his practice and his involvement in PSSST tha t 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 Insti tute of the Arts in 2014\, and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting an d Sculpture in 2012.

Jules Gimbrone \;(b. 1982 Pittsburgh\, lives a nd works in Los Angeles) is an artist and composer that asks how social per formance is codified\, captured\, and transmitted. Using a variety of recor ding and amplifying technologies&mdash\;in addition to materials such as cl ay\, ice\, and even the ambient sound of past performances&mdash\;Gimbrone investigates how sound travels through space\, bodies\, and language as a w ay of exploring hidden or sublimated gendered systems. Gimbrone received a BA from Smith College in 2004 an MFA in Music Composition from California I nstitute of the Arts in 2014. Gimbrone has been exhibited at venues includi ng Human Resources\, Los Angeles\; Vox Populi\, Philadelphia\; FLAX Fahrenh eit\, 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.

What does it take for an object\, or a hu man\, \;to maintain its normal state? What does it take to change it? T hese interconnected questions are at the core of Johansson Projects&rsquo\; upcoming exhibitions &ldquo\;Maintenance&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;Gradient.&rdq uo\;

\n

In &lsquo\;Maintenance\,& rsquo\; \;Dan Grayber \;creates machines that are strangely human in a particular sense: their main objective is to keep them selves afloat. The delicate creations\, housed in glass cases like peculiar specimens under scientific examination\, held in stasis\, their entire exi stence devoted to maintaining equilibrium. Through the sinewy apparatuses\, Grayber alludes to the Sisyphean nature of human existence\, as well as th e contemporary obsession with "convenient" appliances that in reality creat e as many problems as they fix. And yet\, despite the critiques embedded wi thin them\, the sculptures ultimately exist as extravagant answers to simpl e 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 agen t that stimulates seeing\, what makes things visible\, allowing the world t o be at once felt and understood.

\n

In &ldquo\;Gra dient\,&rdquo\; \;Craig Dorety \;explores our ever-shifting relationship to the properties of light\, crafting pseud o-sunsets that mimic the gradient of day passing into night. Inspired by Jo hannes Itten&rsquo\;s writing\, Josef Albers&rsquo\; painting\, and Isaac N ewton&rsquo\;s research\, Dorety&rsquo\;s sculptures are color-theory-in-ac tion: exploring the ethereal properties of light\, shadow\, and time by pro viding them physicality and weight. The abstract works warp the viewer&rsqu o\;s perspective as hues morph atop shapes within shapes\, using electronic s and animated light to mirror the shapeshifting illusions natural light pr ovides every day.

Sculpturesite Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition of new sculptures by artist Frank Morbillo on view at the gallery from July 1 6 to August 20\, 2016. Morbillo's mastery of his materials and processes is demonstrated in the steel\, glass\, stainless steel and bronze works on di splay. The simultaneous release of the latest short film in Sculpturesite's video series Inside the Sculptor's Studio also features Frank Morbillo wit h insightful footage of the artist at work in his New Mexico studio.
< br />The exhibition Frank Morbillo: New Works displays a selection of recen tly completed sculptures from pedestal size to garden scale. Frank Morbillo 's abstract sculptures emanate from his experience of the Southwest landsca pe\; not in a descriptive\, representational way\, but rather as he bears w itness 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 ecos ystem. Morbillo's close studies of his environment has led him to incorpora te greater contrasts and textures in his work over the last twenty years\, further emphasizing the connection between nature\, art and humankind in th e natural landscape.

Artist Frank Morbillo recently welcomed Scu lpturesite owners Brigitte Micmacker and John Denning to his studio in New Mexico and we produced a fascinating short film in our video series spotlig hting Sculpturesite Gallery artists: Inside the Sculptor's Studio. For this unique inside look\, visit our website under the tab Exhibitions to see Fr ank 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 s tages of development: from curving the flat sheets of metal into the desire d shapes to expertly applying a multi-layered patina to a small bronze. Thi s is an incredible chance to see first-hand how some of your favorite sculp tures are made!

Summer Trees Casting Shade \;celebrates BAMPFA&rsquo\;s acclaimed Chinese painting collectio n with over fifty works dating from the twelfth to eighteenth centuries. Th e diverse subject matter&mdash\;from monumental landscapes to intimate view s of quiet gardens\, and from figures of lofty gentlemen to seldom-depicted street characters&mdash\;highlights the richness of the collection. \;

\n

BAMPFA has long been known as home to a robust collection of Chine se paintings\, thanks in large part to the late scholar\, collector\, and U C Berkeley Professor Emeritus James Cahill. Cahill&rsquo\;s personal collec tion forms the central core of our holdings\, which he used to great effect in his nearly thirty years teaching at the University. The exhibition also includes other important gifts and purchases made over the last fifty year s.

\n

The first Chinese painting entered the BAMPFA collection in 1967 . \;Scholar Instructing Girl Students\, \;by the noted fig ure painter Chen Hongshou (1598&ndash\;1652)\, remains an iconic image\, on e that will forever be identified with a history of collecting distinguishe d Chinese paintings. A Berkeley alum purchased the painting for BAMPFA from an important collection belonging to the noted scholar and collector Victo ria Contag\, who literally &ldquo\;wrote the book&rdquo\; on Chinese painti ng (Seals of Chinese Painters and Collectors \;(1940)). Our mo st recent acquisition\,Landscape with Buildings\, a monumental fou rteenth-century landscape painting by Sun Junze\, originally in the James C ahill collection\, was donated in 2015 by Sarah Cahill in memory of her fat her.

\n

Summer Trees Casting Shade \;is an opport unity to enjoy a cool respite from hot summer days and indulge in fine exam ples of Chinese painting.
