“Hands on an Art Body” reception May 19

Exhibition: May 12th-26th
Reception: May 19th 2012, 6pm – ???
Gallery hours: By Appointment

HOMECOMING! presents the one-night competitive art acquisition “Hands on an Art Body.” 

On May 19th at 6pm at Oliver Francis Gallery, HOMECOMING! will offer its blue-chip collection of contemporary artworks to the public so to explore the intrinsic value of art within the context of competition. 

Inspired by the film “Hands on a Hard Body”, where twenty-four contestants compete in an endurance/sleep deprivation contest in order to win a brand new Nissan Hardbody truck, attendees are invited to place their hands on any work they desire on display within the gallery and remain with it throughout the evening. The last participant left in contact with the piece at the end of the night acquires the work at the end of the exhibition. The participants will endure bizarre installation, social deprivation, and artwork that is designed to resist the contact of the viewer. 

A pre-reception viewing of the work up for grabs will be May 12th – 18th by appointment and the night of the reception at 6pm for three hours before the start of the competition at 9pm. During this time, those wanting to compete for work in the show will need to register and be briefed before the 9pm start. Referees, coaches and cocktail waitresses will be on-hand to mediate and assist contestants. The competition will continue until each work is left in contact with one triumphant contestant, be it hours, days or weeks.

“Hands on an Art Body” explores the object/viewer relationship and evaluates the culture of ownership and value within the context of the art economy, collectors, auctions and competition. Amplified since the era of mechanical reproduction and modern social connectivity, the art object has enjoyed a level of mythos imbued upon it through insurable values, condition reports, guarded display, and published auction results. This stands to compete with the value of the object’s original artistic statement, not often connected to its trophy status and lost in the shadow of its provenance. 

“Hands on an Art Body” creates a platform where the included work is only allowed to function as an “art object” when in contact with its prospective owner. The relationship between the viewer and the object is no longer exclusive but essential. The show’s closing acquisition ceremony becomes less social ritual and more spectacle, as ownership of a given work is not measured by monetary capacity, but by sheer will and determination. The show’s system of acquisition would seemingly decommodify the object through constant contact while at the same time activating its purpose and commodifying it though competition for its possession.

Hands on an Art Body is organized by the experimental art collective HOMECOMING! based in Fort Worth, Texas.

Oliver Francis Gallery is located at 209 South Peak St. in Dallas, Texas. 

The closing reception and participatory acquisition of work will be Saturday May 19th starting at 6 pm. Show previews will be arranged by appointment only between May 12th and May 26th.

Elaine Taylor, Gallery Manager

  • Focus Gallery One: Inside. Outside
  • Reception for the Artist
    May 4, 20126 – 9PM
    May 4 – June 23, 2012

    The paintings of Gladys Poorte represent interiors and landscapes which are the product of a long process of construction. They are also concerned with the relationship among objects and characters in a place, their tension or balance, the dance or the stillness among them.

    According to Poorte, “It’s the artist acting as Creator, building universes; or as a child, building imaginary worlds to play in; or as a stage designer building a set where a story will take place.” Her work explores the need to play, to rehearse, to build models.

  • Focus Gallery Two: Stratum
  • Reception for the Artist
    May 4, 20126 – 9PM
    May 4 – June 23, 2012

    Over the past 6 years Lesli Robertson has traveled to Uganda and worked with Ugandan cultural arts. Her research has allowed her to work with textile elements from her personal collection, as well as those acquired in Uganda, to create sculptures that explore the relevance, history and identity associated with these materials.

    In her current body of work, Robertson is taking elements and works from the past and employing them in new forms that serve to document and comment on the material objects that define our personal time. “The process of layering these fragile pieces within concrete is meant to pose a delicate balance between the materials; the layers allude to written text and recordings.”

    Focus Gallery Exhibitions are presented by the Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The mission of the EAP is to exhibit contemporary art with a focus on regional artists in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

  • Transformation Series
  • Reception for the Artist
    May 4, 20126 – 9 PM

    Cynthia Medanich admires and emulates the technique of trompe l’oeil, as a mural decoration that involves the realistic rendering of imagery to create the illusion of objects in three dimensions. The diverse variety of shapes, patterns and colors displayed in the wings of her fragile creatures are from another realm of time and space not directly connected to the world of butterfly.

  • The Panel Exhibits

  • Reception for Artist
    April 6, 20126 – 9PM
    April 6 – June 29, 2012

    Nancy Standlee’s art is a means of self expression and it is always evolving and taking a new direction. She tends to use intuitive colors and is comfortable with representational and non-objective subjects. Nancy says, “I don’t strive for a photographic reproduction of an image as I feel like a camera can do a better job. Art has an emotional dimension and I’d like to leave something for the viewer’s imagination.”

  • Focus Gallery One: Inside. Outside
  • Reception for the Artist
    May 4, 20126 – 9PM
    May 4 – June 23, 2012

    The paintings of Gladys Poorte represent interiors and landscapes which are the product of a long process of construction. They are also concerned with the relationship among objects and characters in a place, their tension or balance, the dance or the stillness among them.

    According to Poorte, “It’s the artist acting as Creator, building universes; or as a child, building imaginary worlds to play in; or as a stage designer building a set where a story will take place.” Her work explores the need to play, to rehearse, to build models.

  • Focus Gallery Two: Stratum
  • Reception for the Artist
    May 4, 20126 – 9PM
    May 4 – June 23, 2012

    Over the past 6 years Lesli Robertson has traveled to Uganda and worked with Ugandan cultural arts. Her research has allowed her to work with textile elements from her personal collection, as well as those acquired in Uganda, to create sculptures that explore the relevance, history and identity associated with these materials.

    In her current body of work, Robertson is taking elements and works from the past and employing them in new forms that serve to document and comment on the material objects that define our personal time. “The process of layering these fragile pieces within concrete is meant to pose a delicate balance between the materials; the layers allude to written text and recordings.”

    Focus Gallery Exhibitions are presented by the Exhibition Advisory Panel of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The mission of the EAP is to exhibit contemporary art with a focus on regional artists in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana.

    Opening Sat May 5- Christine Bisetto, Tiffany Wolf, Trish Igo and Jill O’Brien at 500X

    May 5 – May 27, 2012

    Opening May 5, 2012 7-10PM  

    In the Main Gallery of 500X- 

    Christine Bisetto and Tiffany Wolf present Crushes

    New work by Christine Bisetto and Tiffany Wolf explores infatuations both material and immaterial by focusing on the idea of the crush which brings out insecurities, creates physical power over structure, commands incredible acts of bravery and has the ability to reach the depths of sorrow all with a modicum of lightheartedness and glee.

    In the Upstairs Gallery-  

    Creature Comfort: Trish Igo and Jill O’Brien

    Animal philosophies are rife with contradictions brought about by our childhood idolatry of animals and our societal use and slaughter of animals. Commixing these extremes, Trish Igo and Jill O’Brien create a dreamlike exposé of our haunted relationships to animals. Igo and O’Brien work collaboratively in mixed media to compose vignettes with animals and coveted objects to construct situations that provoke reflection on the subjective and selective ways that people view animals.

     In the Project Spaces-  Downstairs-

     Tails of the Exotica

     Organized by Clayton Hurt and Elaine Pawlowicz

    The purpose of the use of the downstairs project space is to promote awareness and responsibility about the personal ownership of exotic animals in the United States.

    In response the surreal incident of the mass release and escape of large exotic animals in Muskingum County, Ohio in 2011 and countless other stories in the news about the confiscation of dangerous and illegally smuggled wild animals, artists were invited to submit their visual interpretations of the personal ownership of exotic animals as pets in a 10″x10″x10″ format.

    Upstairs-

    Frame Count

    Timothy Harding and Christopher Blay

    Frame count is an installation that talks about the construction of images. The appearance is reminiscent of a film editing room and re-contextualizes movies and color slides as a way of talking about how fragile meaning becomes when images are out of context. The viewer is invited to create their own narratives by advancing slides that interact with still frames, which themselves interact with movie posters.

    Visual Artists from the Mexican city of Apaseo el Alto at the Bath House

     May of the Americas Exhibition Series

    The Bath House Cultural Center is bringing back its exhibition series, May of the Americas, in 2012. The series, which originated at the center in 1999, has the aim of fostering the awareness and appreciation of the artistic expression created by contemporary artists from nations in the Western hemisphere. Since its creation, the series has celebrated the artistic achievements of a diverse group of creators from different countries. Previous explorations of the series included art exhibitions and projects featuring artists from Mexico, Brazil, Guatemala, Paraguay, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, and the United States. This year, the series presents two exhibitions: NaRRativa and El Latido Incesante (The Endless Heartbeat)

    Bath House Cultural Center • (214) 670-8749 • www.bathhousecultural.com

    May of the Americas presents: NaRRativa
    Artwork by Rubén Miranda

    May 5-June 2, 2012

    Opening Reception:
    Saturday, May 5 (7-9 PM)

    The exhibition NaRRativainvestigates the persistent element of narration and storytelling in the works of art of nine painters whose figurative art explores a variety of themes, symbols, and representations of reality and fantasy. The artists in this exhibition create artwork that is informed, to a certain degree, by their Latin American ancestry, which often demonstrates a predilection and affinity for the tradition of oral history, mythology, and storytelling. Just as importantly, NaRRativa also demonstrates that regardless of the common Latino cultural background of the artists, their artwork is diverse and eclectic in its execution, style, and philosophy. Themes of family connections, personal identity, man’s relationship with nature, and statements about society, are investigated with eloquence and poignancy by the artists featured in this exhibition.

    NaRRativa presents artwork by Ray Albarez, Carlos Don Juan, Julio César Flores, Genaro Hernández, Juan J. Hernández, Ruben Miranda, Armando Sebastian, Giovanni Valderas, and Juán Torres Zavala

    May of the Americas presents: El Latido Incesante (The Endless Heartbeat)
    Artwork by Ramón Luis Centeno Gómez

    May 5-June 2, 2012

    Opening Reception:
    Saturday, May 5 (7-9 PM)

    El Latido Incesante (The Endless Heartbeat) is an exhibition that emerged out of a dynamic and fruitful cultural collaboration between the Bath House Cultural Center and the government of the City of Apaseo el Alto, a progressive town in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. Through a partnership with that city’s Mayoral, Cultural Affairs, and Economic Development Offices, and with the leadership and support of the local organization, Casa de la Cultura Apaseo el Alto Dallas, the Bath House Cultural Center was able to work closely with a group of sculptors, painters, and photographers from that region in Mexico, whose talent and artistic tradition is widely acclaimed for its exquisite elegance, wide imagination, and graceful style.

    The exhibition features wood carving sculptures, paintings, photographs, and mixed media artwork with a particular technique described in Spanish as“policromado” and “dorado,” which involves the coloring and decorating of the wood sculptures with highly intricate ornamental designs done with oil paint, gold leaf, and other art materials. Many of the works of art are inspired by religious and historical themes, literature, and by scenes of day-to-day life in Mexico. The artwork created by these artists, particularly the woodcarvings, are part of a rich artistic tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation, and continues to amaze art viewers centuries after the techniques were first used in the Americas.

    The exhibition includes works of art by José Moisés Aguilar Sendejas, Salvador Camacho Mandujano, Pedro Centeno Pantoja, Ramón Luis Centeno Gómez, Magdalena Centeno Gómez, Juán Girón Mandujano, Heriberto Girón Pantoja, Manuel Girón Pantoja, Aurelio Girón Sánchez, César Guzmán, Arnaldo Hernández Acosta, Adán Hernández Malagón, Georgina Herrera, Antonio Malagón Alva, Rosario Mendoza Toledo, Israel David Montecillo Razo, Miguel Ángel Paredes Galván, Saúl Isaac Rico Jiménez, Francisco Sauza Vega, and Yesenia Serrano Mendoza
