ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Group Show - University of New Mexico Art Museum Center for the Arts (Main Campus) - October 16th - December 12th <div align="center">Curated by&nbsp;<strong>Miguel Gandert</strong>, Distinguished Professor of Communications and Journalism, and&nbsp;<strong>Chris Wilson</strong>, J. B. Jackson Chair of Cultural Landscape Studies</div> <div><br /> <div style="text-align: justify;">Starting in the 1600s, painters of romantic landscapes (and two centuries later, many photographers) composed picturesquely balanced views of nature, often punctuated by a small classical ruin or snippet of rural life. Yet from the invention of photography in France in 1839, and its quick embrace in the English-speaking world, Edouard Baldus, Francis Frith, and Carlton E. Watkins, among others, captured panoramas of the traditional and industrializing city. Others such as Eugene Atget, Walker Evans, and Henri Cartier-Bresson walked its streets reveling in the overlooked details of the everyday, vernacular landscape. The first half of Vernacular in Place samples the canon of landscape photography as taught and collected at UNM by historian Beaumont Newhall and founding director of the Art Museum, Van Deren Coke, in the 1960s and 70s-decades when UNM was arguably the leading international center of photo history and studio photography.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">These decades also witnessed the civil rights, anti-colonial and environmental movements, the rise of an international youth counterculture and the grassroots mobilization against the Viet Nam War. Amid this combination of an emerging photo historical consciousness, and a broader anti-authoritarian spirit, a younger generation of photographers-many UNM students, alumni and faculty-reacted against the canon of landscape photography best embodied in those days by Ansel Adams, who consciously edited out signs of modern society. Lee Freidlander, Steve Fitch, and Thomas Barrow, as well as a group assembled in the New Topographics exhibition of 1977 including Lewis Baltz, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, and Nicholas Nixon, instead stepped back to include telephone poles and cobra-headed street lamps, and to turn their cameras on gas stations, industrial parks, and newly-built suburban houses at the desert's edge. Their cool, deadpan, ironic, yet loving embrace of the contemporary vernacular landscape resonates in the work of landscape photographers down to this day.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">In addition to the photographers already mentioned, the exhibition also includes works by Kenneth Winston Baird, Hilla and Bernd Becher, Sabine Delcour, Gus, Foster, Lynn Geesaman, Deborah Hunter, William Henry Jackson, Danny Lyon, Joan Meyer, Beaumont Newhall, Bernard Plossu, Edward Ruscha, David Stephenson, Edward Weston and Steve Yates.</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="text-align: justify;">The exhibit has been developed in coordination with the&nbsp;<a href=";c=5rlBEbOIQiXVUjWYx5WvksFBHM1Yz2IOrNibRnAbE9G2U5XYTEWZ0Q==&amp;ch=wzpwCN5ulw0liMptYtzj1IwbDaXZKaJeSAUXmJpR4ONFkvpEJNEiMQ==" shape="rect" target="_blank">Photo Paysage/Landscape Representation conference</a>,&nbsp;October 15-17, 2015, a French/American dialogue about the role of photography in changing conceptions of landscape and an additional exhibition, "Photographic Notes on the Road: J.

A video projection of the performance will be installed in the gallery as part of her exhibition.</p> <p><strong>ANN HAMILTON</strong></p> <p><strong>THEN:</strong>&nbsp;In 1995, Ann Hamilton presented the video installation&nbsp;<em>SALIC</em>&nbsp;(1995) sited within a train car adjacent to SITE&rsquo;s building. This work was a part of SITE Santa Fe&rsquo;s First International Biennial:&nbsp;<em>Longing and Belonging: From the Faraway Nearby</em>, curated by Bruce&nbsp;Ferguson.</p> <p><strong>NOW:&nbsp;</strong>Hamilton presents<em>&nbsp;the common SENSE &middot; the &nbsp;animals &nbsp;(2014-2015),&nbsp;</em>an installation which explores &ldquo;touch&rdquo; as the sense that is common to all animals species. Created from the artist&rsquo;s extensive engagement with the University of Washington&rsquo;s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture&rsquo;s Ornithology collection, for Hamilton, the work is &ldquo;an address to the infinitude and threatened extinctions we share across species &ndash; a&nbsp;<em>lacrimosa</em>, and elegy for a future being lost.&rdquo; It was commissioned by The Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington and premiered in early 2015. SITE&rsquo;s exhibition will only be the second time it is&nbsp;presented. This show debuted in summer but will been shown through the&nbsp;fall!</p> <p>In the summer, Hamilton invited vocalists from the Santa Fe Opera Apprentice&nbsp;Singers Program to serenade the congregation of animal images. They were&nbsp;accompanied by Santa Fe Opera pianists. The dialog between animal images and musician can be interpreted as an elegy, a lament, a prayer, a meditation, a promise, or an&nbsp;oath. For Fall 20/20, a recording of a compilation of all the Opera Performances will be played in the installation.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Janine Antoni</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>THEN:&nbsp;</strong>In 1999 Janine Antoni&rsquo;s performative sculpture&nbsp;<em>and</em>&nbsp;was featured in SITE Santa Fe&rsquo;s Third International Biennial&nbsp;<em>Looking for a Place</em>, curated by Rosa Martinez.

This show is about rich earth tones, seasonal farmers market selections, and that intangible moment when nature lets you know autumn is just around the corner.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Artist Lange Marshall admits that her excitement for autumn is more about painting the seasonal crops than about eating them. She says, &ldquo;I look forward to fall harvest because of the abundance of colorful objects to paint. The shapes and color combinations of fruit and vegetables is endless.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Michael DeVore&rsquo;s fascination with seasonal color inspires his work, &ldquo;I find this time of year particularly compliments my use of reds, yellows, oranges, and browns. Oil color pigments come from the earth so there&rsquo;s a natural relationship between nature and art which I love to explore.&rdquo; His newest pieces will be on display during this group show. Visitors will also have a unique opportunity to meet many of the featured artists, including Lange Marshall and Michael DeVore, during Canyon Road&rsquo;s Historical Paint-Out on October 17.</p> Fri, 09 Oct 2015 15:56:36 +0000 Doug West - Blue Rain Gallery - October 9th - October 24th <p style="text-align: justify;">New landscapes by Doug West will open at Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe, NM on Friday, October 9th, 2015, from 5 to 7pm.

The exhibition continues through November 22.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In the face of increasing global attention on climate change and rebuilding; and as society grapples with the byproducts of global human achievements such as urban development and mass production that have caused problems of scarcity and waste simultaneously, Remnants is a timely examination of the environmental issues facing society.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">"I&rsquo;ve often found that there is great power in telling difficult stories in a beautiful way. Interest in any given story wanes so quickly, yet it&rsquo;s only through taking the time to go deeper that we get to a place of real understanding.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">There are moments in journalism when the media captures the visual details of a disaster, yet sometimes misses the true scale of devastation. It&rsquo;s my hope that these images serve as a wakeup call &mdash; whether that call is about global warming, infrastructure, or just the recognition that the world is changing, it&rsquo;s a reminder that we need to take special care of our fragile world." <br />-- Stephen Wilkes</p> Fri, 09 Oct 2015 11:10:18 +0000 - James Kelly Contemporary - October 8th - October 10th <p style="text-align: justify;">The third annual Inside Out art exhibition and fundraiser will take place October 8-10, 2015 during National Mental Illness Awareness Week at James Kelly Contemporary and TAI Modern at 1611 Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe.

A group of innovative, highly-individualistic artists broke with tradition to define a new art for the United States, an art expressing the energy, vitality, and singular identity of modern America. The artists who led that change are highlighted here through more than 60 masterworks from the 1910s to the 1960s by America&rsquo;s first generation of abstract artists, including Georgia O&rsquo;Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, and a dozen others.</p> </div> </div> <div class="paragraph"> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition is organized into themes reflecting multiple pathways to Modernism. In &ldquo;Nature&rdquo; are images by artists, particularly those gathered around Alfred Stieglitz, who expressed an interest in the spiritual power of the natural world. &ldquo;Town &amp; Country&rdquo; brings together views of the New York skyline and other structures of modern life, including bridges and the suburbs. &ldquo;Cubism&rdquo; shows how artists adapted the ideas and aesthetic of the European avant-garde to American subjects. &ldquo;The Southwest&rdquo; highlights artists who looked to regional scenes for distinctly American imagery. New Mexico in particular served as a spiritual and creative oasis for modern artists.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A century later, this art continues to inspire collectors Dr. Jan and Marica Vilcek. Emigrating from the former Czechoslovakia in the mid-1960s, they have established a foundation to raise awareness of foreign-born innovators in the arts and sciences who have made significant contributions to American society. They have made their collection accessible for the first time through this traveling exhibition, organized by the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, Oklahoma in cooperation with The Vilcek Foundation. We have supplemented the Vilcek Foundation Collection with additional paintings by Georgia O&rsquo;Keeffe to further relate O&rsquo;Keeffe to the work of her fellow modernists.</p> </div> Fri, 09 Oct 2015 10:54:03 +0000 David Bradley - Georgia O'Keeffe Museum - September 25th - January 10th, 2016 <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition celebrates David Bradley&rsquo;s 2007 painting <em>O&rsquo;Keeffe After Whistler </em>by framing it with the artwork by Georgia O&rsquo;Keeffe to demonstrate his specific and nuanced understanding of O&rsquo;Keeffe&rsquo;s life and work. Since early in his career, O&rsquo;Keeffe has made frequent appearances in his paintings. Bradley often visualizes O&rsquo;Keeffe in front of her easel, alone in her studio or within the storied landscapes of her artwork. But she is also represented in many of his genre paintings, always as the iconic figure dressed in black, usually wearing her signature OK pin created for her by Alexander Calder. Bradley often honors O&rsquo;Keeffe by placing her at the front of group portraits that bring together characters from art history and popular culture who consort with recognizable locals. Just as often Bradley pairs her in unlikely situations with other artists such as her husband and modernist photographer Alfred Stieglitz (<em>American Gothic: O&rsquo;Keeffe and Stieglitz Meet Tonto</em> <em>and the Lone Ranger</em>, 2000) or Navajo painter R.C. Gorman (<em>Abiquiu Afternoon</em>, 1984). After more than 30 years, Bradley no longer remembers how many times he has pictured her in his artwork.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">David Bradley is an Anishinaabe artist, a registered citizen of the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota. However, he has been a resident of Santa Fe since he came to study at the Institute of American Indian Art in 1977. He is a participant observer in the art community of his chosen home. Though he is also a sculptor and abstract painter, he is most famous for narrative paintings that reveal his knowledge of the ancient and the new within the very commercialized tourist center of Santa Fe. Bradley is a master story teller in the tradition of the Ashinaabe trickster&nbsp;<em>Naanabozho</em>; guided by his astute powers of observation and a keen sense of irony he creates vividly detailed paintings of delight and wonder.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition coincides with <em><a href="" target="_blank">Indian Country: The Art of David Bradley</a></em>, a retrospective at Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, curated by Valerie K. Verzuh. If you look closely, you will find O&rsquo;Keeffe in four of paintings on view.</p> Fri, 09 Oct 2015 10:50:45 +0000 Keiko Sadakane, Hans Sieverding - Gebert Contemporary - 558 - September 12th - October 31st Fri, 09 Oct 2015 10:45:10 +0000 Catherine Harris - Center for Contemporary Art - October 9th - December 27th <p style="text-align: justify;" dir="ltr">One New Mexico-based artist was selected for a solo-show in the spector ripps project space. Albuquerque resident and artist Catherine Harris presents her project <em>Trans-Species Repast</em>, an interactive installation that explores a non-hierarchal relationship to landscape. In addition to her installation, Harris hosts <em>Trans-Species Repast</em> Family Dinners, a series of three interactive performances on the CCA campus that invite the public to join in on a meal with another species.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />Catherine Harris teaches Art and Ecology and Landscape Architecture at the University of New Mexico in a split position with the College of Fine Arts and the School of Architecture and Planning. She received her BA from Harvard University, 1988, MLA from UC Berkeley, 1997, and MFA from Stanford University, 2005. Harris works in art/design, and digital/analog expressions. Her built work resides at Deep Springs College, White Mountains, CA, McCovey Field, SF, CA and The Violin Shop in Albuquerque, NM, among other sites. Recent projects include collaborations with Alexander Webb and Nina Dubois on modular explorations of space at Montessa Park for High Desert Test Sites and trans-species habitat furniture with Sam Martin, shown at the Santa Fe Art Institute among other spaces. Trans-species habitat, ecological flow, and morphogenesis, are current theoretical foci.</p> Fri, 09 Oct 2015 10:40:26 +0000 Hye Coh - Center for Contemporary Art - October 9th - November 15th <p style="text-align: justify;">After twenty years in Los Angeles working in animation as a background artist for Disney, DreamWorks, and Warner Brothers,&nbsp;<strong>Hye</strong> <strong>Coh</strong> moved to Santa Fe three years ago.&nbsp; She soon came upon a copy of Axle Contemporary's&nbsp;<em>E Pluribus Unum: Santa Fe</em>, Axle's book containing hundreds of black and white portraits taken in 2012. As a newcomer to New Mexico, she was searching for a way to connect to the place and the people.&nbsp; A dedicated artist, she turned to painting. She approached Axle Contemporary to secure our permission to use material from the book.&nbsp; Axle enthusiastically agreed, and one year ago ( August 1, 2014) she&nbsp;began her project, painting 6" square oil paintings from many of the portraits in the book. On August 1st, 2015, &nbsp;she completed her 100th painting in the series.&nbsp;She is now teaching advanced drawing at the Santa Fe Community College, and partly through her&nbsp;100 Portraits&nbsp;project has found a place for herself in Santa Fe's community of artists.&nbsp;Axle Contemporary has teamed with Santa Fe's Center for Contemporary Arts to present the entire series of <em>100 portraits</em>.&nbsp; The works will be available for sale as will the book,&nbsp;<em>E Pluribus Unum: Santa Fe</em>&nbsp;which contains all of the source material for Hye Coh's project.</p> Fri, 09 Oct 2015 10:39:01 +0000
