Futuring the Present: Proposals for Eco-social Futurisms, Sea Change Symposium, Orange County Museum of Art

Friday, November 11, 2022

Join Liz Larner on Friday, November 11, at 2 pm (in-person or online) for the panel discussion Futuring the Present: Proposals for Eco-social Futurisms, organized by the Orange County Museum of Art as part of the Sea Change Symposium.

 

When we talk about futures, whose futures and what kinds of futures are we imagining? Techno-futurisms, for example, might provide quick fixes to pressing issues, while allowing the structural conditions causing such issues to remain in place. Speculative futurisms are often oriented toward the grandiose nature of what-could-be yet might be too removed from the present to effect meaningful change. This panel invites a discussion of other kinds of alternative or nonlinear temporalities of becoming, including many Indigenous cultures that view the past, present, and future as occurring simultaneously, one temporal moment existing in close relation with the others. How might a reorientation toward that which-has-been and that-which-is provide equal, if not more insightful, approaches toward considering just environmental futures for the Pacific Ocean? What new and ancestral insights can artistic and curatorial engagements with these questions produce?

Silke Otto-Knapp

Silke Otto-Knapp

In Memoriam (1970–2022)

It is with profound sadness that Regen Projects announces the passing of artist Silke Otto-Knapp (1970–2022).

 

Born in Osnabrück, Germany, Silke Otto-Knapp earned an MA from Chelsea College of Art and Design in London in 2006 and a degree in Cultural Studies from the University of Hildesheim, Germany in 2007. The artist lived for many years in Los Angeles, where she worked and taught at the University of California Los Angeles as Professor of Painting and Drawing in the School of Art and Architecture since 2015.

 

Otto-Knapp made an indelible impact through her singular work as an artist. Her generosity as a friend, mentor, colleague and teacher was deeply felt by all that encountered her. Otto-Knapp’s oeuvre is defined by monochromatic watercolor paintings, many of which derive their subject matter from the history of theater, dance, and performance. Her atmospheric works explore interrelations between the real and the ideal, the personal and the social, referencing moments, images, and landscapes, transforming and transcending their origins.

Screening: Redoubt, The Momentary, Bentonville, AR

Thursday, June 16, 4 – 6:15 pm

Somewhere between a Western and cinematic tone poem, Matthew Barney’s acclaimed film Redoubt, 2019, has been called by the Los Angeles Times “as much an experience as a film.” Redoubt unfolds as a series of hunts in the wilderness of Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains. The characters communicate a mythological narrative through dance, letting movement replace language as they pursue each other and their prey. Join the Momentary for a showing of Redoubt alongside a visit to its current exhibition A Divided Landscape.

International Streaming Premiere: CATASTERISM, A Film by Matthew Barney and Jonathan Bepler

June 12–26, 2022

CATASTERISM, a new film by Matthew Barney and Jonathan Bepler, will be presented as a streaming premiere during Art Basel. CATASTERISM was written and directed by Matthew Barney with music written and directed by Jonathan Bepler. The film will go live internationally on June 12 at 2 pm CET / 8 am ET / 5 am PT and will only be available for two weeks on www.catasterism.net, until June 26, 2022.

 

In September 2021, Barney and Bepler presented a live performance at Schaulager, titled Catasterism in Three Movements. This collaboration featured a large-scale symphonic composition by Bepler, performed by the Basel Sinfonietta with conductor Jack Sheen; and choreography developed by Barney with dance artists K.J. Holmes and Sandra Lamouche. CATASTERISM draws from documentation of those performances witnessed by a live audience and expands the narrative with cinematic scenes filmed in the galleries and workspaces of Schaulager. The film elaborates on the characters’ private rituals and deploys forensic examinations of artworks within Schaulager to evoke connections between the material qualities of art objects and the ephemeral qualities of the music. With musicians moving through and inhabiting the building in varying locations an d configurations, Schaulager's iconic architecture becomes a monumental acoustic body, as well as an almost ceremonial stage for performers. The project continues Barney’s and Bepler’s long history of collaborative projects with distinguished musicians in experimental and unconventional settings.

Dan Graham

Dan Graham

(1942–2022)

Regen Projects, Lisson Gallery, Marian Goodman, and 303 Gallery today mourn a great artist, Dan Graham, who sadly died this weekend in New York. His influence over the past half century as a writer, photographer, architect, sculptor, filmmaker, and performance artist is widely felt in the contemporary art world, with many of his groundbreaking endeavours in video, installation, and audience participation—including such legendary and confrontational works as Performer/Audience/Mirror (1975) and Public Spaces/Two Audiences (1976)—among the first and most enduring examples ever created in those fields.

 

Despite his recent disavowal of Conceptual Art as a term, he was one of its earliest pioneers through early text-based works, typographic wall pieces and schematic poems, not to mention the seminal illustrated magazine essay, Homes for America (1966). He exhibited the work of his peers Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, and Robert Smithson at the John Daniels Gallery in New York, where he was briefly the curator and director, before showing alongside these and many other Minimalists and Conceptualists during the 1960s and 70s. 

 

The main focus of Graham’s art since the late 1970s was an ongoing series of public architectural installations, which he called pavilions, derived from geometric forms and rendered in plate glass, two-way mirror, and steel armatures. Graham intended his pavilions to function as punctuation marks, pausing or altering the experience of physical space, providing momentary diversion for romance or play, or else as places to delve into other activities, like reading or viewing videos. These deceptively simple structures recall many of the artist’s earlier experiments with perception, reflection, and refraction, but depart from them in their non-gallery setting as long-term additions to the landscape.

 

Graham had an encyclopedic sphere of references and wrote about everything from Dean Martin and rock music to astrology and urban architecture. He is survived by his wife, the artist Mieko Meguro. His wit, generosity, and irascibility will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our deepest sympathies are with his family and friends.

Serpentine Pavilion 2022: Black Chapel, designed by Theaster Gates

June 10 – October 15, 2022

Serpentine Gallery has released details of its twenty-first Serpentine Pavilion commission, designed by Theaster Gates. Opening to the public on June 10, Black Chapel draws inspiration from the architectural typologies of chapels and the great kilns of Stoke-on-Trent, England. A single source of light coming from an oculus creates a sanctuary-like setting for reflection and conviviality as the Pavilion once again becomes a platform for live performances and public convenings.

 

“Coming out of Covid, I thought how nice it would be to have a place of quietude. It’s a place for people to be with their thoughts and rest, a sacred chapel where you can sit and be reflective. It should give you the ability to touch your inside self," Gates told The Guardian

 

Designed with the architectural support of Adjaye Associates, Gates’s Serpentine Pavilion 2022 is part of The Question of Clay, a multi-institution project by the artist taking place in London in 2021 and 2022.

Congratulations to Sable Elyse Smith, who is among 63 artists selected to participate in Whitney Biennial 2022: Quiet as It's Kept, co-organized by David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards. This will be the eightieth iteration in the long-running series of annual and biennial exhibitions launched by the Museum’s founder, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, in 1932.

Sable Elyse Smith Joins Regen Projects

Regen Projects is pleased to announce representation of Sable Elyse Smith

 

Working in video, sculpture, photography, and text-based artworks, Smith draws attention to American systems of inequity. Her work focuses on the largely unseen personal, political, and quotidian impact that state-funded penal, educational, and economic structures have on culture at large. Smith makes this visible by recontextualizing materials, symbols, forms, and value systems from these bureaucratic programs to make new meaning.

 

Shaun Caley Regen states, “I am honored to be able to work with Sable Elyse Smith. We are excited to present her poignant work that speaks so eloquently to systems of injustice and trauma with poetic aplomb and great formal beauty. It will be a pleasure to present her first solo exhibition in Los Angeles at Regen Projects in 2023, and to support the work going forward. This is an exciting moment for Sable and her ambitious projects, which will be presented in numerous institutional shows this upcoming year. Rarely have I seen work that is so emotive and revelatory of systemic injustice and what that space feels like.”

STARS DON’T STAND STILL IN THE SKY

– Lawrence Weiner 

 

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the loss of our dear friend Lawrence Weiner, who was a titan in art and a visionary in our lifetime. He passed away on December 2 at the age of 79.

 

Lawrence was born in the Bronx in 1942. His radical approach to dematerializing the art object paved the way for many language-based and conceptual artists to come, rewriting the course of art history. His generosity and intelligence engendered so many things, including the beginnings of our gallery in 1989. It has been an honor to work with him so closely over the years, and we continue to be humbled by his kindness and his brilliance. 

 

We will miss him dearly, and our heartfelt condolences go out to Alice and Kirsten and Henry.

Kevin Beasley Joins Regen Projects

Regen Projects is pleased to announce representation of Kevin Beasley, an artist whose practice is deeply invested in drawing out the histories latent in everyday materials and connecting these pasts to the present cultural landscape. The artist will present his first exhibition with the gallery in April 2022. 

Speaking in relation to the announcement Shaun Caley Regen said, “I have long admired Kevin Beasley’s work and it is an honor to be working with him. Kevin’s innate ability to craft stunning and deeply affective art from materials that are unassuming and yet historically charged forms a poetic and critical voice in today’s art world. We are thrilled to welcome him to the gallery and are looking forward to his first exhibition at Regen Projects in late April 2022.”

Jack Pierson in Conversation with Andy Campbell at Regen Projects

Saturday, October 16, 2021

Watch Jack Pierson's recent conversation with Andy Campbell on the occasion of his exhibition Less and more at Regen Projects. In the course of their thoughtful and captivating discussion, they reflected on some of the formative moments in Pierson's career and the development of his artistic voice, material excess, economy, and ephemerality, and the archival impulse and the significance of leaving a trace. 

 

Jack Pierson uses photography, drawing, painting, collage, installation, and text-based sculpture to coax the poetic from the everyday—manifesting romantic affect, longing, and desire through seemingly banal objects, expressive sketches, and charged turns of phrase.

 

Andy Campbell is an Associate Professor of Critical Studies at USC’s Roski School of Art and Design, whose work foregrounds LGBTQ communities and their archives as wellsprings for histories of art and design.

12th Friedrich Kiesler Prize for Architecture and Art Is Awarded to Theaster Gates

Congratulations to Theaster Gates, who has been announced as the winner of the Friedrich Kiesler Prize for Architecture and Art by the Austrian Friedrich and Lillian Kiesler Private Foundation. Of its decision, the jury stated:

 

"By awarding the Kiesler Prize to Theaster Gates, the jury is acknowledging a concept artist who does not work inside the established architectural system or art world but who has found agency through his highly unusual and idiosyncratic practice. His artistic approach is characterized by transdisciplinarity, respect, inclusion, and participative processes. The most important objectives of his work are social change, spatial transformation, and empowerment. By imbuing this work with both an impressive aesthetic value and a social agenda, he has found a meaningful role for contemporary architecture. In this way, Theaster Gates connects Frederick Kiesler’s historic position with the urgent questions of our time.”

Lawrence Weiner, A First Quarter, presented by e-flux Video & Film

September 6–20, 2021

Lawrence Weiner’s 1973 film A First Quarter is presented by e-flux Video & Film as part of An Other Cinema, a program curated by Lukas Brasiskis.

A First Quarter adopts the principles of Nouvelle Vague cinema as its role model. Simultaneous realities, altered flashbacks, plays on time and space are all components of the form and content of the film.…The dialogue consists entirely of the work as it is spoken and read, built, enacted, written, and painted by the players. As the scenarios build, they appear as tropes, one after another." —Alice Weiner⁠

34th Bienal de São Paulo: Though it’s dark, still I sing

September 4 – December 5, 2021

For the Bienal de São Paulo, Silke Otto-Knapp has created a series of medium- and large-format paintings that form a kind of setting, both in terms of their subject matter and their arrangement inside the pavilion. Continuing her investigations into theatrical space, the chosen themes range from performers in motion to backdrops painted onto large canvases. The paintings rest on panels or function as folding screens and autonomous structures.

 

In each of the scenes, the idea of continuous rehearsal carries a sense of suspended movement. The motion exists not only in the action of the choreographic and/or theatrical subject itself but also in the way the public moves around the work. Meanwhile, the human-sized painted landscapes portray an artificial nature that contrasts with the vegetation surrounding the pavilion in Ibirapuera Park, creating a dualistic setting.

Join Willem de Rooij on Thursday, August 26, for a book presentation with writer Carl Haarnack and Zippora Elders, co-curator of sonsbeek20→24, where de Rooij’s work is currently presented. Through artistic research and appropriation, de Rooij’s installation and the newly published catalogue reflect on the genealogy and reception of images through the work of Pierre Verger, a 20th century photographer and ethnologist. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The publication consists of photographs and newly commissioned essays by Karin Amatmoekrim, Ayrson Heráclito, Philippe Pirotte, Richard Price, Willem de Rooij, and Gloria Wekker, each of which engages with the figure of Pierre Verger as well as the history and present of multiethnic Suriname, the hierarchies of the gaze, and the role of anthropology, both in Verger’s era and today.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The conversation takes place at 6 pm at Showroom Arnhem in the Netherlands.

August 21–22, 2021

The Cremaster Cycle is a series of five visually extravagant films created by artist Matthew Barney that blasted its way into the art world nearly 20 years ago and has had a lasting impact ever since. Its influence can be found in film, video, art, media, commerce, theater, and more. Barney himself performs characters as diverse as a satyr, a magician, and even the infamous murderer Gary Gilmore. Filmed over eight years, from 1994–2002, the films themselves are a grandiose mixture of history, autobiography, and mythology, creating an intensely private universe where symbols and images are layered and interconnected. Created for the big screen only and unavailable for many years, The Cremaster Cycle is a unique, must-see experience, guaranteed to leave you awestruck and mystified in a glorious way.

Green Lens, a site-specific installation by Doug Aitken, Isola Della Certosa, Venice, Italy

Green Lens is a living experiential artwork and destination located on the island of Isola Della Certosa in Venice, a sinking city strongly impacted by the rise of the oceans. The surrounding city creates a strong ecological narrative within the artwork that speaks to the idea of the future in the post-COVID world.

 

In the 21st century, we explore the complexities of how to create a balance and harmony with the natural environment. The trees and plants living in Green Lens will be donated to Isola della Certosa as part of a reforestation program and restructuring project to make the cloister ruins accessible again to Venezia citizens and its international public.

Conference: The White West IV: Whose Universal?, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin, Saturday, July 10

Co-organized by Ana Teixeira Pinto, Kader Attia, and Anselm Franke, The White West: Whose Universal? is an attempt to engage the overlaps between metaphysical predicates and colonial legacies, as well as the undertheorized continuities between fascism and settler colonialism. In this first part of the conference, Norman Ajari, A. Dirk Moses, Nikhil Pal Singh, and Françoise Vergès examine the politics of remembering and forgetting, ongoing attempts to decenter and recenter white futurity, and how the postwar decoupling of fascism from imperialism forecloses a decolonial critique of white supremacy. Register here

Catherine Opie in conversation with Hou Hanru, Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Thursday, June 3

A talk to present Phaidon’s beautifully printed monograph that presents a compelling visual narrative of Opie’s work since the early 1980s — the most comprehensive book on her work to date. For almost 40 years, Catherine Opie has been documenting with psychological acuity the cultural and geographic identity of contemporary America.

 

Created in close collaboration with the artist, Catherine Opie surveys her entire career and is organised along three themes that feature prominently in her practice: People, Politics, and Place. Within each thematic section, her work is presented non-chronologically, in order to tease out connections between series from across her oeuvre. The result is a dynamic visual narrative that, taken together, forms a full picture of her artistic vision, displaying the breadth and scope of her work.

Screening: 'The Body’s Legacies, Part 2: The Postcolonial Body,' Sunday, May 2

Taking place on Sunday 2 May 2021, the second gathering of Fragments of Repair/Gatherings, The Body’s Legacies, Part 2: The Postcolonial Body consists of a screening of artist Kader Attia’s eponymous work (video, 2018, 48 min.), followed by a conversation between Olivier Marboeuf (writer, critic, and curator, Paris) and Ruth Wilson Gilmore (abolitionist scholar and activist, Lisbon). 

 

This is the second gathering of Fragments of Repair/Gatherings, a hybrid off- and online series of lectures, conversations, screenings, and assembly forums around the theory and practice of “repair,” streamed from BAK, Utrecht, La Colonie/La Dynamo de Banlieue Bleues, Pantin, Paris, 17 April–1 August 2021. 

 

The Body’s Legacies, Pt. 2: The Postcolonial Body tackles police violence and racial body politics in postcolonial France. Throughout the work four decolonial thinkers and activists—among whom Marboeuf—share thoughts around the subject of the individual and collective racialized body. The exchange pivots around a concrete, devastating instance of racially motivated police aggression where a young man of Congolese descent, Théo Luhaka, was assaulted by police officers following a race-based identity check in a Parisian banlieue in 2017. Weaved through personal recollections, philosophical perspectives, and sociological scrutiny, there emerges an unambiguous account of present-day police brutality and institutional racism. This powerful testimony of systemic oppression of Black lives draws a straight line from historical colonialism into the present and throws into crisis the self-congratulatory western narrative of progress and reason that has led to contemporary democracy with its supposed all-encompassing equity.

Kader Attia

Kader Attia appointed curator of the 12th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art

The Berlin Biennale is pleased to begin preparations for the 12th edition with the curatorship announcement. The 12th Berlin Biennale takes place in 2022.

For over two decades, Kader Attia has worked with the concept of “repair” in his artistic practice. It allows him to investigate the dialectic between destruction and repair, in which repair is understood as a way of cultural resistance as well as a means for a society or a subject to reappropriate their history and identity. Raised in France and Algeria, Kader Attia studied philosophy and art in Paris and Barcelona; today he lives and works in Berlin and Paris. In 2016, Kader Attia founded La Colonie in Paris’ 10th arrondissement as a space for the exchange of ideas and discussions focusing on decolonization, not only of people but also of knowledge, attitudes, and practices. Driven by the urgency of social and cultural reparation, it aims to reunite what has drifted apart or been broken. Since March 2020, La Colonie has been closed to the public due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In March 2021, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin hosts the fourth part of a conference series initiated by Kader Attia, Ana Teixeira Pinto, and Giovanna Zapperi entitled The White West.


Director Gabriele Horn and the team of the Berlin Biennale warmly welcome Kader Attia.

Anish Kapoor has succeeded in transforming the cool, conceptual, and minimal approach to sculpture by adding lyricism, metaphor, and the heat of the primordial. Objects spill out from their own parameters, yet they also stand serenely as in meditative focus as if for ritual. Typically, the sculptures appear abstract, with Kapoor's intention to promote self-reflection made most obvious when using mirrored surfaces. He does not wish to present a prescriptive idea, but instead to create an environment within which people themselves can consider meaning. As the viewer becomes part of the sculpture, each work speaks of the confined individuality of a single body, but also of the expansive inclusiveness of a shared place. His sculptures paradoxically entwine esoteric philosophy with sensual everyday experience. In this session, one of India’s greatest artists talks about his life and work with his friend Homi K. Bhabha.

South London Gallery unveils new work by Lawrence Weiner

The South London Gallery (SLG) is delighted to unveil artist Lawrence Weiner’s work, AT A DISTANCE TO THE FOREGROUND, 1999, installed on the gable end of the SLG’s Fire Station annexe. AT A DISTANCE TO THE FOREGROUND is the first permanent public artwork by Lawrence Weiner in London.

 

The work’s installation on the Fire Station follows that of another work by Weiner, ALL IN DUE COURSE, that was temporarily shown on the façade in 2014 as part of his solo show at the SLG of the same name, signalling the transition of the then semi-derelict building into a beautifully renovated annexe for the SLG.  The idea of acquiring the work for the SLG came about before lockdown and social distancing had even been considered in the UK, so the contemporary resonance of the work is both coincidental and poignant.

'Black Art: In the Absence of Light' debuts on HBO Tuesday, February 9

Debuting February 9 on HBO, Black Art: In the Absence of Light offers a vital and illuminating introduction to the work of some of the foremost African American visual artists working today. Directed by Sam Pollard, the film shines a light on the extraordinary impact of curator David Driskell’s landmark 1976 exhibition, Two Centuries of Black American Art, at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on generations of Black artists who have staked a claim on their rightful place within the 21st-Century art world. Interweaving insights and context from scholars and historians, along with interviews from a new generation of working African American curators and artists including Theaster Gates, Glenn Ligon, Kerry James Marshall, Faith Ringgold, Amy Sherald, and Carrie Mae Weems, the documentary is a look at the Contributions of Black American artists in today’s contemporary art world.

Doug Aitken on galleryplatform.la

Regen Projects is pleased to feature our current exhibition of new work by Doug Aitken on galleryplatform.la. Conceived over the last 10 months, a time of profound change in the face of the pandemic, the works on view form an ecosystem of interconnected mediums. Each plays off the other, creating a choreography of images, language, and sound. At heart, the works are a portrait of a society moving toward the future.

Mutina For Art selects Silke Otto-Knapp to receive This Is Not a Prize 2020 award

Mutina for Art is pleased to announce that the This Is Not a Prize 2020 award has been assigned to artist Silke Otto-Knapp (Osnabrueck, 1970).

 

This Is Not a Prize is not just an annual award but also Mutina’s commitment to support a future project of the selected artist: from an exhibition to a collaboration with an international institution, a publication or the production of a new artwork.

 

Silke Otto-Knapp has been selected by the Mutina team, by its CEO Massimo Orsini and by the curator of Mutina for Art Sarah Cosulich, following a consideration on the importance and visibility that painting has recently reacquired. This year This Is Not a Prize wishes to recognize an international protagonist like Otto-Kapp, who with painting has brought forward in time an excellent and coherent path of great historical-artistic relevance. Despite belonging to the mid-generation, Silke Otto-Knapp can already be defined an “artists’ artist” for her reference role both on the level of practice and expression as well as of language and conceptual research.

Art Basel OVR: Miami Beach

Regen Projects is pleased to present Amalgam, a selection of artworks for Art Basel OVR: Miami Beach that speak to our present moment. This diverse grouping is unified by an approach to verbal or visual form that presents the unitary as the fragmented, the whole within the detail, and the sum within the parts. Loosely referencing the title of Theaster Gates’s 2019 exhibition at Palais de Tokyo and Tate Liverpool, Amalgam also has inspired this compendium. Literally an amalgam is the union of disparate objects merged into something new, a chemistry that mixes and blends.

 

Concurrent with the online fair, Regen Projects will be open by appointment at our gallery, with a special exhibition featuring highlights from our viewing room. To speak with or to make an appointment with a sales director please click here

Online premiere of Doug Aitken: Flags & conversation with Jefferson Hack, Wednesday, December 2

Artist Doug Aitken presents Flags, a new body of work that he has been developing over the last six months. The online premiere will be followed by a short conversation with Jefferson Hack. Join them on December 1, 2020 at 10:30 am PT via Zoom. Register here

Flags is a series of handmade wall hanging works, forms created out of fabric cut from the artist's clothes and collaged into words, sentences and abstractions. The works explore language that create a new topography of ideas of the future. The artworks contemplate themes of our relationship to the landscape around us and the coexistence of the natural and man-made worlds. They investigate how the individual synchronizes with the present and how we are moving into the future as both individuals and as a society.

Margo Leavin in conversation with Shaun Caley Regen, galleryplatform.la

As a pillar of Los Angeles’s art community and one of its primary beacons to the world since 1970, Margo Leavin’s exemplary career indelibly marks not only the ongoing LA museum and gallery scene, but also the city’s now-cemented stature as an internationally vital node for contemporary art. Shaun Caley Regen sits down with Leavin in an exclusive two-part interview to discuss the genesis and legacy of her influential art space. Follow the link below to read Part 1 of the interview.

Raymond Pettibon on galleryplatform.la

Regen Projects presents an online solo exhibition of new baseball works by Raymond Pettibon on galleryplatform.la. This focused selection draws from a broader range of drawings currently on view at the gallery from September 12 – October 31.

 

One of the most significant artists of his generation, Pettibon’s distinctive style combines pen and ink figuration with hand-inscribed text and collage elements to create incisive works that probe the deeply embedded dualities of American culture. The deep well of sources and influences from which he draws — everything from comics, sports, world history, American politics, film noir, literature, and surf culture — coalesce into a lyrical rapture of high and low. His remarkable aesthetic is the result of the brazen approach Pettibon takes to drawing, unconcerned with the slipshod markings and concomitant blots, smears, and retracings that appear in its wake. This outwardly crude manner is underwritten by technical and linguistic mastery — an interplay that has made Pettibon’s work an emblem of countercultural disaffection since he emerged on the art scene in the early 1980s.

'Abraham Cruzvillegas: Best's Method for Creative Design'

Regen Projects is pleased to present Best's Method for Creative Design, a new series of fifteen self-portraits by Abraham Cruzvillegas inspired by the drawing methods of artist and filmmaker Adolfo Best Maugard.

 

In 1929, Best devised a manual for basic drawing lessons to be used in public schools in the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution. Reducing drawing to its essentials, Best's system allowed its practitioners to compose any possible representation with easy, smooth, and synthetic gestures. This method, forged from Best's lifelong research into popular arts and crafts and comprising all art from all times, has served as a generous gift to children and adults alike.

Every week, Walker Art Center is going live on Instagram with artists from around the world! In conversation with Walker curators, they’ll discuss the issues that matter right now.

 

On July 11 at 2 pm CT, Walker Art Center executive director Mary Ceruti speaks with Liz Larner, an artist whose work is central to our understanding of sculpture in the 21st century. Joining from her studio in Los Angeles, Larner will discuss some of the key ideas that have occupied her focus, including the relationship between object and viewer, stability and power, and material and form, as well as how she might be thinking and working differently in this moment.

Regen Remotely: ‘Your Views during the pandemic,’ April – May 2020

Gillian Wearing began Your Views in 2013 with an open call for videos of views from windows around the world. Over the past two months, Wearing has reprised the idea, this time creating a film of views amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In collaboration with Regen Projects, Your Views during the pandemic captures an unprecedented moment in modern history of worldwide isolation — from the UK, India, the United States, Greece, Italy, China, Nigeria, Morocco, Pakistan, the Philippines, and beyond. Now, as the world begins to reopen, Wearing’s project provides an opportunity to reflect on recent history and begin to unpack it through a humanistic lens.

 

The project is ongoing, and accepting contributions online at yourviewsfilm.com

Regen Projects Matching Fund

UPDATE: It gives us great pleasure to share that in just under one week we successfully met our goal of matching $20,000 in contributions to organizations mobilizing for racial justice and equality. We extend our sincerest thanks to all those who graciously donated to the campaign. Together, we were able to raise more than $40,000 to help support the organizations listed below. The effort to combat racial and social injustice continues. We encourage others to keep lending time and resources to these and other valuable causes, and we will do the same.

 

Regen Projects stands in solidarity with our friends and colleagues around the country and the world who are calling out systemic racism, social and economic inequality, police brutality, and anti-black violence, as well as the horrific killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Mychael Johnson, Nina Pop, Monika Diamond, and countless others. We are truly inspired by the many individuals and organizations both locally and nationally who have come together in this turbulent and important time to enact change.

 

In support of their efforts we are proud to match up to $20,000 of $100 donations to organizations helping to combat police violence, reduce incarceration, distribute resources, and bolster community organizing impacting the welfare of black and brown lives. Together we can double our impact – Please consider donating time and money to the organizations listed below, and send your receipts to us at office@regenprojects.com.

Regen Remotely playlist: 'Zazoucos'

Abraham Cruzvillegas has created a playlist of songs related to his first exhibition at Regen Projects, Autodestrucción 1, in 2012. Cruzvillegas based the playlist on music he had in heavy rotation while researching the show, which gravitated around themes of self-destruction, intolerance, and individual identity. Cruzvillegas wrote a story to accompany the exhibition, which you can read here. Titled Zazoucos, the playlist travels through historical identifications, from the Zoot-Suited Pachucos of North America to the Zazous of Nazi-occupied France.

Gates talks about the pleasure as well as the hardship of working in isolation and discusses how he came to team up with the denim label Citizens of Humanity to create 1,000 masks for the Chicago Food Depository: ‘When it became evident that this virus was going to have a significant impact, it meant that I would have to shift significantly how I work. And I knew that I wanted to spend a portion of that time being selfish and enjoying the isolation in a way … But the other part felt like I would have to also figure out how I could be of service, and the service part was a bit more complicated.’ Watch the video at the link below.

Regen Remotely: #WIP

For many artists, staying indoors means hunkering down with work and research. Kader Attia has shared with us a glimpse into his studio practice, which involves a huge table on which he spreads out all of his source materials and collage elements, allowing him to get to work arranging, reflecting, making associations, and rearranging again. Pictured is an example of his research on modern architecture's genealogy, from dispossession to reappropriation: The body as an architecture.

Gstaad, Switzerland

Saturday, February 29, 12 pm

 

Elevation 1049 invites you to SONG MIRROR, a new musical performance composed by Doug Aitken to be performed live by six vocalists from the Los Angeles Master Chorale inside Mirage Gstaad. The composition of SONG MIRROR takes simple yet enigmatic everyday words and phrases like "Is anyone listening,” "you know more than I know” and “sunset" and transforms them into layered vocals that are hypnotic and sublime. This new artwork reflects everyday language and phrases that have been abstracted into beautiful and transcendent music that surrounds and envelops the listener. Free shuttles will be available from 11:15 -11:45am from Gstaad train station to Mirage Gstaad, and back after the performance.

Wolfgang Tillmans

'War Requiem,' designed by Wolfgang Tillmans, National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts, Taiwan, February 28 – March 1

War Requiem is one of the greatest choral works of the twentieth century. Benjamin Britten juxtaposes the anti-war poetry of Wilfred Owen with the timeless ritual of the Latin Requiem Mass. The result is a passionate outcry against man's inhumanity to man. Joining the production team as designer and making his English National Opera debut is the Turner Prize-winning artist and designer Wolfgang Tillmans. Chien Wen-pin, Artistic Director of National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), conducts this new co-production, along with Daniel Kramer's contemporary staging, seeking to examine and process the grief of the incomprehensible loss of life from wars past and present, and offering hope for the future.

Redoubt loosely adapts the classical myth of Diana, goddess of the hunt and of nature, and Actaeon, a hunter who trespasses on her privacy and is punished. The first new film in several years by internationally acclaimed artist, writer and director Matthew Barney unfolds as a series of hunts in the rugged wilderness of Idaho’s spectacular Sawtooth Mountains. Anette Wachter, a real champion sharpshooter, is cast as Diana, and the director himself plays a grizzled mountain man known as The Engraver. The characters communicate a mythological narrative through dance, letting movement replace language as they pursue each other and their prey. By layering classical myths, cosmological myths, and American myths about humanity’s place in the natural world, the film creates a complex portrait of the American landscape.

The Geffen Contemporary

Museum of Contemporary Art
Los Angeles, CA
Thursday, January 9, 7 pm

 

Christina Quarles makes expressive, gestural works that reference the history and techniques of painting, but also smartly test its limits. Her dynamic compositions often feature feminine tropes that reference domestic space—fabrics, patterns—alongside polymorphous and ambiguous figures arranged in contorted positions. Playing with the identity of the figure to expand the potential for representation in her work, Quarles explores the genre of figurative art as it has been captured in The Foundation of the Museum: MOCA’s Collection by artist Paul Mpagi Sepuya. Join her at 7 pm on Thursday, January 9, 2020. Photo: Daniel Dorsa.

Lecture/Panel: Picture Industry, Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, November 21

MoMA's Forums on Contemporary Photography presents a lecture and panel on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 6 pm. The upcoming session will examine the formative links between photographic history, science, and the humanities, as traced from the rise of industrialization to our present digital world through a series of contemporary responses. The point of departure for this forum is the publication of Picture Industry: A Provisional History of the Technical Image (1844–2018), an anthology of texts, edited by Walead Beshty, reflecting the transformations in the production and distribution of mechanically reproduced imagery from the late-19th century to the present. 

 

The featured speakers for this forum are Walead Beshty; David Campany, writer and independent curator; Noam Elcott, Associate Professor, Department of Art History and Archaeology and Chair of Art Humanities, Columbia University; artist LaToya Ruby Frazier; artist Cameron Rowland; and artist Christopher Williams.

 

This event is by invitation only, but we are very pleased to present a recording of the forum, which will allow remote friends and colleagues to hear the conversation.

Whoever Shows: Strike Uyp th’ Band!

Co-presentation with Performa 19 Biennial

New Museum

New York, NY

Thursday, November 14, 2019

 

Whoever Shows: Strike Uyp th’ Band! is a staged reading at the New Museum of a collaged collection of excerpts from Raymond Pettibon’s scripts, including those originally produced for videos like The Whole World is Watching: Weatherman ’69 (1989–90), Sir Drone: A New Film About the New Beatles (1989–90), The Holes You Feel, Andy Warhol, Jim Morrison, and Batman. Reflecting upon the notion of collaborative work, this assemblage of Pettibon’s fragmentary scripts, scenes, and lyrics attempts to envision personal perspectives and imaginative approaches to the historical past and the edges of society. This event at the New Museum is one of only a handful of select public readings of his scripts that Pettibon has organized over the past several years.

 

Directed by Raymond Pettibon, the continuous reading will feature an ensemble of artists, musicians, and Pettibon’s friends including Oliver Augst, Mark Beasley, Veronique Bourgoin, Angela Choon, Jonny Cournoyer, Brian D’Amato, Pauline Daly, Marcel Dzama, Ray Farrell, Thomas Fehlmann, Kim Gordon, Sozita Goudouna, David Larsen, Young Kim, Spencer Leigh, Charles Louis-Aristide, David Rimanelli, Sven Sachsalber, Stella Schnabel, Ricky Sepulveda, Frances Stark, Robert Storr, Juli Susin, Dirk Vandenberg, Mitchell Watkins, Mike Watt, Hans Weigand, and Lauren Wolchik.

Film Forum presents Matthew Barney's newest film, Redoubt, 2018, which will run daily for two weeks beginning October 30, 2019. Join the artist for an opening-day Q&A following the 6:50 pm screening. 

 

From the boundlessly fertile/febrile imagination of Matthew Barney, creator of the epic CREMASTER cycle. In REDOUBT, the myth of Diana and Actaeon unfolds in Idaho’s majestic Sawtooth Mountains, with Diana played by real-life sharpshooter Anette Wachter. She’s accompanied by two nymphs on a wolf hunt (one, Eleanor Bauer, choreographed the film’s gravity-defying movements); Barney is the Engraver/forest ranger – stealthily etching their movements onto copper plates. Wordless physical action, choreography and spectacular cinematography create a dreamlike logic. The title REDOUBT can refer to both a provisional military fortification, and a defensive, isolated psychological position – both evoked by the film’s setting in a vast Idaho wilderness. “Mr. Barney’s most engrossing film in over a decade… speaks directly to contemporary American themes: the place of the gun, the fate of the environment and the fantasies and paranoias of those who turn their back on constitutional government and American society” (Jason Farago, The New York Times).

'Rachel Harrison Life Hack,' published by Yale University Press/Whitney Museum of American Art

Published to coincide with the exhibition Rachel Harrison Life Hack at the Whitney Museum of American Art (October 25, 2019 – January 5, 2020), this monograph explores twenty-five years of Rachel Harrison's practice. Created in close collaboration with the artist, it is the first comprehensive monograph on Harrison in nearly a decade. The catalogue includes an in-depth plate section, which doubles as a chronology of Harrison’s major works, series, and exhibitions. Objects are illustrated with multiple views and details, and accompanied by short texts. Essays by Elizabeth Sussman, David Joselit, Johanna Burton, Darby English, Maggie Nelson, and Alexander Nemerov cover Harrison’s earliest works to her most recent output. The book also includes a handful of photo-collages that the artist created specifically for this project. Published here for the first time, these pieces superimpose found images with reproductions of Harrison’s own past work.

Doug Aitken has earned international acclaim with his groundbreaking work that redefines how we experience art. Defying categorization, he integrates moving images into sculptural and immersive environments and pushes the limits of perception. With a profound knowledge and understanding of the history of 20th-century avant-gardes, experimental music and cinema, and an intimate kinship with the protest movements of the late 1960s, Aitken has invented a unique aesthetic that transforms viewers into collaborators. Join him for a talk on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Photo: Noah Webb.

16th Istanbul Biennial: 'The Seventh Continent,' Istanbul, Turkey, September 14 – November 10

Glenn Ligon is featured in the 16th Istanbul Biennial: The Seventh Continent, opening Saturday, September 14, 2019. Ligon’s contributions to the Biennial pay tribute to US author and activist James Baldwin’s life in Istanbul. One of the works Ligon will present is Sedat Pakay’s filmic portrait of Baldwin in Istanbul, From Another Place, which the artist has subtitled in Turkish for the first time. In two related videos, the artist pairs crowd scenes shot in Taksim Square with music from contemporary experimental musicians. Accompanying these videos are the newest in his America series of neon sculptures. Ligon has installed these using mahyas, strings of lamps or lights strung between minarets on mosques during Ramadan – a departure from his usual medium of neon for the series. The work will change in appearance every two weeks during the exhibition. The biennial runs through November 10, 2019. Image: Untitled (31 Mart 2019), 2019

Andrea Zittel

16th Istanbul Biennial: 'The Seventh Continent,' Istanbul, Turkey, September 14 – November 10

Andrea Zittel is featured in the 16th Istanbul Biennial: The Seventh Continent, opening Saturday, September 14, 2019. Personal Plots, Zittel’s work for the biennial, responds to the notions of private property, space and inherited structures of debt and bondage. Zittel – who asks, ‘is space something that can be owned at all?’ – presents a sculpture made of concrete blocks that demarcate human-sized, cell-like spaces. The units recall an office cubicle, a private bedroom, or a cemetery plot. The work points to the way in which space, and its delineation, can be used as a medium for control and alienation while it is more marketed as a source of security, privacy and individualism. The biennial runs through November 10, 2019. Image: Personal Plots, 2019.

John Bock designs scenery for 'Berlin Story,' premiering at Volksbühne, Berlin, Germany, Friday, August 23

Berlin Story is based on Story, an indeterminate dance piece choreographed by Merce Cunningham and originally performed by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in 1963. Dance On Ensemble draws on archival resources in a re-imagining of the piece as Berlin Story, in which Berlin artist John Bock has taken on the role of Robert Rauschenberg, offering ready-made constructions along with other variable and changing art works to engage with. The result, Berlin Story, reexamines and reanimates a dance last presented 55 years ago.

Abraham Cruzvillegas featured in 'Honolulu Biennial 2019,' March 8 – May 5, 2019

Featuring Abraham Cruzvillegas, TO MAKE WRONG / RIGHT / NOW embraces the polyvocality of each venue as a repository of enduring histories and the continuum of indigenous knowledge. The venues have been carefully selected for their ties to the curatorial approach and the works this approach has inspired. Collectively, the sites reflect a deep reverence for land, ocean, wahi pana (storied places) and the genealogical ties within Hawaiʻi and the wider Pacific region. The selection of sites extend the Biennial beyond an engagement with contemporary art towards a deeper connection with the histories and stories that are of, and unique to, this place.

The selection was made by PAMM’s curatorial team in collaboration with The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation and honors experimentation, creativity and promise. It is also a symbol of PAMM’s mission to be a leader in the presentation, study and interpretation of international modern and contemporary art.

Watch the conversation here.
 

Liz Larner was born in Sacramento, California in 1960. She experiments with abstract sculptural forms in a dizzying array of materials, including polychromatic ceramics that evoke the tectonic geologic shifts of the western landscape. An inventor of new forms, Larner’s sculptures are not easy to categorize. They defy easy description by design, as her investigation into new forms favors personal narrative over minimal austerity.

 

Ariana Reines is a poet, playwright and translator based in New York and known for her interest in bodily experience, the occult, new media, and new possibilities for the long or book-length form. In addition to being the author of several highly acclaimed volumes of poetry, she is Artforum’s resident astrologist.

'Don't Forget to Breathe,' 6775 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, February 8 – 17, 2019

An offsite installation by Doug Aitken
6775 Santa Monica Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA
February 8 – 17, 2019
Hours: 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

 

Los Angeles is a perpetually changing landscape in a state of constant reinvention. 'Don’t Forget to Breathe,' a new installation by Doug Aitken, meditates on the rapidly changing face of technology framed within a relic of our modern past. The atmosphere of the desolate storefront presents a possibility that a chapter of capitalism has completed its life cycle and we are entering the next era where the screen world mirrors the physical one. This new era is increasingly dematerialized, where human connection is evaporating and quickly being replaced by digital life.

One of the reasons I like using the pins in these open configurations, is I’m creating a work that is porous and penetrable and changing. That’s the worldview that I believe in.’ Photo: Myung J.

As part of a new video series for T, Glenn Ligon talks about 'Self Portrait Exaggerating my Negroid Features,' 1981, by Adrian Piper. The portrait is as important as the language in its title, also written across the bottom of the piece, Ligon explains. 'It makes us think about how what we think of as a self portrait is actually a portrait of the society that we live in,' he says.

Matthew Barney’s ‘Partition,’ 2002/2018, is currently on view at Art Basel Unlimited, in Hall 1.1, U17. ‘Partition’ reinterprets a major installation relating to his film ‘CREMASTER 3,’ 2002. A full-scale bar, originally sculpted from petroleum jelly, has been transformed into a monumental sculpture in cast plastic. ‘CREMASTER 3,’ the fifth and final part of Barney’s ‘CREMASTER Cycle,’ is set primarily in 1930s New York during the construction of the Chrysler Building. Many laborers who worked on the building were Irish immigrants and Freemasons, and the film’s iconography is informed by masonic rites and Irish folklore. ‘Partition’ marries the form of a traditional Irish bar with that of a plumb level, one of the principal symbolic tools of freemasonry. The original sculpture, with its jelly surface modeled around a refrigerated armature, existed in a state of indefinite suspension, poised on the brink of collapse. Here, Barney allowed the latent disintegration to begin, before casting the bar in plastic. The sculpture lists to one side, a reference to the metaphorical implications of the plumb level for freemasons. Overlaying the dense symbolism of the film with equally complex material transformations, ‘Partition’ evinces the breadth of Barney’s sculptural language. Photo: Andrea Rossetti

A Letter From Anish Kapoor

Last year an image of my work 'Cloud Gate' (in Millennium Park Chicago) was used without my consent in a politicised advertisement for the National Rifle Association (NRA), entitled 'The Clenched Fist of Truth.' The NRA’s ‘advertisement’ – as they describe the video on their own website – seeks to whip up fear and hate. It plays to the basest and most primal impulses of paranoia, conflict and violence, and uses them in an effort to create a schism to justify its most regressive attitudes. Hidden here is a need to believe in a threatening ‘Other’ different from ourselves. I am disgusted to see my work – in truth the sculpture of the people of Chicago – used by the NRA to promote their vile message. Recent shootings in Florida, Las Vegas, Texas, and a number of other towns and cities, make it more urgent that ever that this organization is held to account for its ongoing campaign of fear and hate in American society. 

 

'Cloud Gate' reflects the space around it, the city of Chicago. People visit the sculpture to get married, to meet friends, to take selfies, to dance, to jump, to engage in communal experience. Its mirrored form is engulfing and intimate. It gathers the viewer into itself. This experience, judging by the number of people that visit it every day (two-hundred million to date), still seems to carry the potential to communicate a sense of wonder. A mirror of self and other, both private and collective, 'Cloud Gate' – or the ‘Bean’ as it often affectionately referred to — is an inclusive work that engages public participation. Its success has little to do with me, but rather with the thousands of residents and visitors who have adopted it and embraced it as their 'Bean.' 'Cloud Gate' has become a democratic object in a space that is free and open to all.

 

The NRA's nightmarish, intolerant, divisive vision perverts everything that 'Cloud Gate' – and America – stands for.  Art must stand clear in its mission to recognise the dignity and humanity of all, irrespective of creed or racial origin.

 

Gun violence in the United States affects every citizen of your country – all religions, all cultures, all ages.  The NRA’s continued defence of the gun industry makes them complicit in compromising the safety of the many in favour of corporate profit.  I support 'Everytown for Gun Safety' and their efforts to build safer communities for everyone across the United States.

"The Modernist," Regen Projects, Los Angeles, CA, January 12 – February 17, 2018

Regen Projects is pleased to debut The Modernist, Catherine Opie’s first film. This marks the artist’s ninth solo exhibition at the gallery.

 

The Modernist presents a dystopic view of Los Angeles, a city that has figured prominently in Opie’s work over the years. The film is in conversation with Chris Marker’s radical 1962 photo-romanLa Jetée, which utilizes still photography to tell a story of longing, time travel, and the terror of nuclear apocalypse. Opie’s film continues this dialogue, employing similar formal and narrative structures to a different end. Focusing on contemporary issues like natural disasters, the breakdown of the American political system, global tragedies, and the Los Angeles housing crisis, the film stars Stosh, a.k.a. Pig Pen, a close friend of Opie’s who has appeared in many of her photographs, as a struggling artist who is obsessed with landmark midcentury modern architecture.

James Welling 'Pathological Color' lecture
Monday, November 13, 6:30PM at Harvard University
Event is free and open to the public.

 

"For over 20 years, I have been tinkering with color. Color became an option for me—previously I'd worked mainly in black and white—when I started using a Macintosh computer and the image management program Adobe Photoshop. Working with color, “hands on” as it were, required a familiarity with trichromacity, the mechanism whereby organisms (and devices) deploy red, green, and blue receptors (or elements in mechanical reproduction) in the eye to mediate the visual world.

As I moved beyond a simple understanding of how the eye and film register color, I became drawn to what Goethe calls, in his Theory of Colors, “pathological color.” This intuition lead me to diverge from normative, one to one reproductive color matching and to look closely at 1960’s multichannel color experiments, ranging from Andy Warhol’s silkscreen paintings to Richard Avedon’s psychedelic portraits of the Beatles.


I began my pathological color images in 2006-2010 using Philip Johnson’s Glass House and Pierre Chareau’s Maison de Verre as armatures for my initial color experiments using colored gels. (I have long been interested in photographing architecture and landscape. In the mid 1980’s I photographed H. H. Richardson buildings and railroad landscapes.) In 2014 I moved to multichannel inkjet prints with layered color channels combining photographs of contemporary dance, landscape, and Brutalist architecture."

High Desert Test Sites 2017

High Desert Test Sites 2017, curated by Aram Moshayedi and Sohrab Mohebbi, opens this weekend, October 21-22!


This year’s iteration is built around An Ephemeral History of High Desert Test Sites: 2002-2015, a month-long exhibition focused on the project’s history. In addition, a pseudo-symposium titled The Palm Talks compliments the exhibition with live music and presentations on the topic of non-communities.

 

The Palm Talks includes both local and non-local contemporary thinkers, historians, writers, and artists, whose contributions culminate in a momentary glimpse into our collective state. Set within the context of the legendary Palms Restaurant in Wonder Valley and presented with live musical accompaniment by M. Cay Castagnetto and The Renderers, there will be a negotiation between language and sound, noise and meaning, music and speech. Participants in The Palm Talks include Fiona Connor, Trinie Dalton, Gary Dauphin, Steve Kado, Alexander Keefe, Nancy Klein, Annelies Kuiper, Cailin O'Connor, Litia Perta, Linda Sibio, Laura Sibley, Bobby Jesus and Frances Stark, Sam Thorne, James Owen Weatherall, Aurora Tang, and others.

 

An Ephemeral History of High Desert Test Sites presents an incomplete and partial look at the organization’s fifteen-year history, based on the artifacts, ephemera, and facsimiles that have been recovered by High Desert Test Sites and past participating artists. It has prompted a desire to document the organization’s history, to create a living archive of contributions that were otherwise ephemeral and temporary, and to observe the narrative of the gathered material in order to tell the story of the organization, the vast community of artists involved, and the landscape that has witnessed these activities.

 

High Desert Test Sites 2017 is complimented by new projects and contributions by Fiona Connor, Bob Dornberger and Sarah Witt, Neil Doshi, Edie Fake, Glenn-Murray & Co., Oliver Payne, Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs, and Ry Rocklen.

 

A publication for the exhibition will be available as part of the Saturday, October 21 edition of the Hi-Desert Star, a local newspaper that has served the community since 1957.

 

High Desert Test Sites 2017 is curated by Sohrab Mohebbi and Aram Moshayedi, with Tatiana Vahan, Elena Yu, Vanesa Zendejas, and Andrea Zittel.

“For us, it was very important to expand our gaze, our vision,” he said. “We expanded it to the Pacific Rim… expanding our perception of what we think we are.” Using a 1939 map designed by Mexican artist Miguel Covarrubias as a backdrop — a map that omits Europe and focuses on the Pacific — the exhibition includes Latin American artists from around the globe, including South Korea, New Zealand and Japan. “More than transnational, I think it’s intergalactic,” he said.

The exhibition complicates traditional accounts of photography, drawing from its role within science, the humanities and contemporary art. Encompassing a broad range of photographic practices from the late 19th century to the present, the exhibition reflects upon transformations in the production and distribution of photographic images as realized through its varied constructions of the corporeal, from its origin as scientific tool and a means of cultural investigation to its phenomenological effects on a viewer.

Her pictures ask how sure we are about what we know to be true. 'There’s a certain kind of equality I’m trying to create, which is what I believe American democracy is about,' Opie said. 'If I were to pass judgment on, say, football players—that they were the asshole kids who used to beat me up in high school—that’s not really looking.'"

Ariel Levy profiles Catherine Opie in this week's Newyorker.com.

"Donation Box," Desert X, February 25 – April 30, 2017

Gabriel Kuri's 'Donation Box,' is now on view as part of Desert X, curated by Neville Wakefield. Located at 2500 North Palm Canyon Drive, this large scale installation takes the form of an indoor landscape or domesticated desert. A vast expanse of sand -- peppered with extinguished cigarette butts -- in an empty commercial space, serves as the receptacle for small change. The audience is invited to leave a monetary contribution on the surface of the artwork, adding to the texture of this rather surreal scaled-down and boxed-in version of what otherwise lies right outside the shop, just beyond the parking lot. On view through April 30.

Doug Aitken: MIRAGE

Doug Aitken: MIRAGE

February 25 - October 31, 2017

Palm Springs, California

www.dougaitkenmirage.com

 

MIRAGE is a site-specific installation set in the Southern California desert. Utilizing the form of a ranch style suburban American house, the sculpture is composed of reflective mirrored surfaces. MIRAGE distills the recognizable and repetitious suburban home into the essence of its lines, reflecting, and disappearing into the vast western landscape. Opening February 25, 2017 as a part of Desert X, a site-specific contemporary art exhibition curated by Artistic Director Neville Wakefield, MIRAGE will remain on view after the exhibition closes through October 31, 2017.

 

Movement was the driving force behind the settling of the American West, and the long flat vistas that stretched toward the Pacific shaped the ideology behind this iconic embodiment of American architecture. The California Ranch Style, which is unique to the West, was informed by the ideas of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who believed that architecture should be both in and of the landscape. In the 1920s and ‘30s a small inspired group of architects working in California and the West created the first suburban ranch style houses, fusing Wright’s fluid treatment of spaces with the simple one-story homes built by ranchers. After World War II, the ranch style’s streamlined simplicity gained popularity and commercial builders employed a simplified assembly line approach to create this efficient form, matching the rapid growth of the suburbs. The mass-produced ranch home became a familiar sight across the country, the style filling the American landscape as quickly as each new subdivision was built.

 

MIRAGE is reconfigured as an architectural idea, the seemingly generic suburban home now devoid of a narrative, its inhabitants, their possessions. This minimal structure now functions entirely in response to the landscape around it. The doors, windows, and openings have been removed to create a fluid relationship with the surrounding environment. Situated at the juncture where the rugged San Jacinto mountain range gives way to the Coachella valley, MIRAGE is perched over a distant modern development that fades into the open desert. As MIRAGE pulls the landscape in and reflects it back out, its familiar architectural form becomes a framing device, a visual echo-chamber endlessly reflecting both the dream of nature as a pure uninhabited state and the pursuit of its conquest. Its mirrored surfaces form a life- size kaleidoscope that absorbs and reflects the landscape. Subject and object, interior and exterior, the psychological and physical; each of these oppositional forces are held in constant tension, yet allowed to shift and transform in the ever-changing desertscape.


Like a human-scale lens, MIRAGE works to frame and distort the evolving world outside of it. There is no single time to view this work, as each variation provides something new: at night the distant lights refract to create a universe of stars; on a tranquil afternoon the sky is transformed into banks of blue fragmented by slices of clouds. As there is no fixed perspective or correct interpretation, each experience of this living artwork will be unique.


Doug Aitken (b. 1968) is an American artist and filmmaker whose work explores every medium, from sculpture, film, and installation to architectural intervention. His work has been featured in exhibitions around the world at institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, Vienna Secession, the Serpentine Gallery in London, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Aitken earned the International Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1999 for the installation electric earth. He also received the 2012 Nam June Paik Art Center Prize and the 2013 Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award: Visual Arts. He lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
