San Francisco-born, New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach has described her work as an attempt to reveal “new spectral and dimensional richness…both within and beyond the limits of perception.”
Engaging a variety of media, ranging from painting and photography to book design and musical performance, Auerbach explores the limits of our structures and systems of logic (linguistic, mathematical, spatial) and the points at which they break down and open up onto new visual and poetic possibilities.
Tauba Auerbach studied at Stanford University and has had numerous solo exhibitions including Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, UK; Bergen Kunsthall, Norway; Malmö Konsthall, Sweden; Wiels Contemporary Art Center, Belgium; Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, CA; as well as participated in numerous group exhibitions in institutions such as the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design, Prague, Czech Republic; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; SFMOMA, San Francisco, CA; and Musee D’Art Moderne, Paris, France. She also runs the press and publishing house Diagonal Press.
A complimentary wine reception follows the event.

November 14
Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, an artist couple based in Austin and Berlin, have been working collaboratively in film, photography, and sculpture since 1990. Their suggestive work invites open-ended reflections on place and cinema and, as stated by Jordan Amirkhani in Daily Serving, is “propelled by the artists’ fascination with the open circuits of social life, memory, and history that sit just outside the frame of moving images.”

For Tuesday Evenings, Hubbard / Birchler discuss Grand Paris Texas, the 2008 video piece commissioned by the Modern and described by Jeffrey Kastner for Artforum as interweaving “the physical and social space of a dead cinema, a forgotten song and the inhabitants of a small town,” in relation to their most recent works, Flora and Bust, featured in the Swiss Pavilion of the 57th Venice Biennale for the exhibition Women of Venice, curated by Philipp Kaiser.

Alternative Process Photography Artist Talk June 17 at JM Gallery

jmgalleryphotographers

Join JM Gallery tomorrow Saturday, June 17, at 1:30 for an artist talk with photographers Peter Blackburn, Amy Holmes George, Frank Lopez, Kathy Lovas, and Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen.

JM Gallery is excited to work with photographer and teacher Frank Lopez in presenting an exhibition of works by local photographers who explore the limits of technology and chemistry through experimental processes that challenge our notions of how photographs are made. These artists use a variety of processes—some old, some new, and some in combination—to create images that cannot be reproduced using standard methods. Frank, for example, scratches, tears, and bleaches exposed Polaroid film and then scans and retouches the images to create abstract works that illustrate the process itself. Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen offers cyanotype images on fabric that recall ancient “wanted” posters, but present portraits of men and women standing up for victims of racial profiling and police brutality. Amy Holmes George’s ziatype prints are still lifes composed of babies, duckies, ring toys, and children’s clothing that appear at once concrete and dreamlike; familiar, yet strangely haunting. Kathy Lovas presents Police Blotter, an artist’s book in which Polaroid pinhole photographs of newspaper crime reports, school photos, and encyclopedia texts are layered to pose the questions: “Who will become a criminal?” and “Who will become a victim?” And Peter Blackburn works with gum bichromate printing, a 19th-century technique that produces rich, painterly images, to capture the energy of dance.
ABOUT JM GALLERY // JM Gallery offers works of art on paper and sculptural forms that engage both the eye and the mind. The gallery promotes artists who create smart, visually compelling work and showcases their art in a space that is inviting and accessible. JM Gallery is committed to working closely with artists as they develop their work and careers and to developing lasting relationships with collectors. In collaboration with area schools and non-profits, they enrich the creative community by teaching artists and collectors about navigating the complex world of art.

One Step Ahead Artist Talk June 17 at SDCC

onestepaheadJune17

“One Step Ahead”

Artist Talk
Sat. June 17, 2017 3:00pm – 5:00pm

One Step Ahead is a joint exhibition by Lyndon Barrois Jr. and Kahlil Robert Irving, that excavates a pivotal period of American culture and politics, examining loss as a stifling of progress. Reflecting on the affects of the assassinations of Civil Rights leaders Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., Barrois Jr. and Irving mine cultural iconography, both celestial and terrestrial, presenting metaphorical and juxtapositional gestures that bring historic concerns into our present condition. Through both traditional and inventive strategies of making, One Step Ahead draws from the eponymous 1967 song by Aretha Franklin, which touches on time and the inevitability of heartbreak where love is concerned. In acknowledging two lives, two assassinations, and two directions of thought towards the progress of Black life in the United States, the artist hope to prompt past, present, and future reflections on mortality, while working to translate their perspectives into alternate ways of understanding identity and protest.

About the Artists:

Lyndon Barrois Jr. has exhibited nationally, including solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the University of Illinois Springfield Visual Arts Gallery, Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts (St. Louis), and group exhibitions at La Esquina (Kansas City), the Chicago Artist Coalition (Chicago) and Blackburn 20/20 Gallery (New York), to name a few. He received an MFA from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Art at Washington University in St. Louis. He has held residencies at Atlantic Center for the Arts, Arteles Creative Center in Finland, and Nes Artist Residency in Iceland. Barrois Jr. was a teaching artist at the Stony Island Arts Bank in Chicago and a faculty member at Washington University and Webster University. He is currently the Museum Educator at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.

Kahlil Robert Irving is a multimedia artist living and working in Saint Louis, Missouri. He recently completed his undergraduate degree at the Kansas City Art Institute, double majoring in Art History and Ceramics. Currently he is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. At Washington University, Irving is a Chancellor’s Graduate Fellow. His work in the collections of the Riga Porcelain Museum, in Riga, Latvia; Foundation for Contemporary Ceramic Art in Kecskemet, Hungary, and the Ken Ferguson Teaching Collection at the Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, Missouri. His work has also been exhibited at the Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Kansas City Artist Coalition, Kansas City, Missouri; Glassell School and Museum of fine art, Houston, Texas; and the Visual Arts Center, Boise State University, Boise, Idaho.

Amon Carter presents “The Polaroid Project” June 3 – Sept. 3

Polaroid carey_196_thumb

Amon Carter Museum of American Art Presents “The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology”

FORT WORTH, Texas—The Amon Carter Museum of American Art presents The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology, a sweeping overview of the Polaroid phenomenon featuring the work of more than 100 artist-photographers along with examples of the tools and artifacts that helped make Polaroid a household name. The exhibition, which makes its U.S. debut at the Amon Carter, highlights the wide-ranging and often surprising uses of Polaroid materials through 136 images, including works by such heralded artists as Ellen Carey (b. 1952), Chuck Close (b. 1940), Marie Cosindas (b. 1925), Barbara Crane (b. 1928), David Hockney (b. 1937), Robert Rauschenberg (1925–2008) and Andy Warhol (1928–1987). The exhibition is on view June 3 through September 3, 2017; admission is free.

“Polaroid was the epitome of instant imaging long before the digital age,” says Joy Jeehye Kim, Assistant Curator of Photographs. “This show reveals the energy of artists who embraced the technology as a novel medium of experimentation.”

Visitors to the exhibition will see how artists experimented in black-and-white and color and produced images ranging widely in size and shape from modest 3” x 4” portraits to large dream-like mosaics built from 20” x 24” prints. Pervading all is an atmosphere of constant experimentation and energetic play as artists interrogate and reimagine the very purpose of photography.

Polaroid nitsch_1007_s

The Polaroid Project reveals the Polaroid Corporation’s technical and marketing roots, but it also showcases the company’s unusually strong and extensive commitment to art, starting with founder Edwin Land’s (1901–1991) close friendship with the great landscape photographer Ansel Adams (1902–1984), who often tested the Corporation’s new cameras and films in the mid-1950s and was an avid promoter of its achievements.

The Polaroid Corporation stood proudly at the forefront of photographic image-making in a world that had come to believe that easier and faster meant better. The company’s invention and production of finely designed, high-quality, yet easy-to-use cameras and films brought virtual immediacy to a medium that previously lived by the notion of “shoot and wait.” Land was a proud, ever-pushing genius who never hesitated to sound messianic in his pronouncements about Polaroid’s technical achievements. Like the romantic scientists of a hundred years earlier with whom he identified, Land believed his invention would not merely serve mankind in myriad ways, at work and in leisure, in the arts and the sciences, but even advance democracy.

During Polaroid’s prime, its cameras and films were purchased by millions of amateurs and countless professionals. While families recorded their anniversaries and graduation parties, filmmakers and fashion photographers made test shots, scientists recorded their observations, and police documented crime scenes, artists embraced the new medium as a grand new tool for image-making and experimentation. At the heart of it all was instantaneity—no longer did photographers have to send films to a lab, and wait for days or weeks, or even go into a darkroom for a laborious chemical process. With Polaroid’s instant range, photographer and subject could watch together as the image took form before their eyes. Polaroid not only transformed photography, it set the foundation for the expectation of immediate results we are so accustomed to today.

Supplementing the exhibition’s artworks are rare artifacts from the Polaroid Corporation archives that trace the development of the technology from Land’s early work with 3D photographs in military service during World War II and his initial development of instant cameras and film to the company’s famous SX-70 and Spectra cameras. In addition to presenting production models of both cameras and films, the exhibition also includes prototypes made of paper, plastic and wood that illuminate the creative puzzle-solving of the company scientists, engineers and technicians working through how to shift photography from fast to instant by way of elegant packaging. Together, the objects and photographs reveal how artists helped shape Polaroid even as Polaroid coaxed artists into exploring new ways of seeing and visually imagining the world.

“The exhibition drives home the company’s deep belief that art could and should be made anytime, anywhere, by anyone,” says Kim. “Polaroid, quite literally, taught the public not merely a new way of seeing, but a new way of relating to the world.”

Interactive cards that include information about the Polaroid Corporation’s cameras, film and history will be scattered throughout the exhibition for visitors of all ages to use. Large print labels will also be available for use in the galleries.

The Polaroid Project has been organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/New York/Paris/Lausanne, in collaboration with the MIT Museum, Cambridge, Mass., and the WestLicht Museum for Photography, Vienna. After the exhibition closes at the Amon Carter, it travels to the WestLicht Museum for Photography, where it is on view December 5, 2017 to March 4, 2018. In 2018 and 2019, the exhibition will also tour theC/O Berlin, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe in Hamburg, McCord Museum in Montreal and MIT Museum.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Amon Carter will sell a catalogue for $40 in the Museum Store.

Many Hats/One Head – The Accidental Curator

Robert Storr is a painter who supported himself by sheetrocking, carpentry, and house painting, along with occasional art writing, when in 1990, with only an MFA in studio art, Storr was picked out of the chorus line by the newly appointed Kirk Varnedoe, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, to be a curator in that same department. What followed was an eventful twelve-year run at MoMA, with his tenure ending as Senior Curator. Then there was a stint as the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, as well as the overall directorship of the 2007 Venice Biennale, making Storr the first and, thus far, only US-born curator chosen for this role in the 112-year-old exhibition. All of this was followed by the deanship of the Yale University School of Art.
Still a professor of painting at Yale, for this Tuesday Evenings presentation Storr talks about learning on the job as a way of life during a period of extraordinarily complex, rapid, and far-flung changes in the “art world” — now a polycentric, culturally diverse, and ever-morphing economic and politic alternate reality — as well as the abiding values that draw people to art and into an “art community” primarily inhabited by makers of various kinds.
Robert Storr lives and works in New York. In addition to his posts at The Museum of Modern Art, New York University, Yale University School of Art, and his role as director of the 52nd Venice Biennale, Storr has curated and published catalogues for numerous exhibitions, including monographic shows on Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, Tony Smith, and Robert Ryman. In April 2016, Storr was awarded the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ambassador to the US. As a renowned author and critic, he has been a contributing editor at
Art in America since 1981 and regularly contributes to exhibition catalogues and art publications such as ArtForum, Frieze, Parkett, Corriere della Sera (Milan), and Art Press.His most recent publication, Intimate Geometries: The Work and Life of Louise Bourgeois, was released on February 15, 2017.

JM Gallery Presents: An Artist Talk with Johannes Boekhoudt Feb. 11

BoekhoudttalkJM Gallery opens its third year with Black & White, an exhibition of drawings by Johannes Boekhoudt.

Artist Talk Feb. 11, 2017 1:30 pm
JM Gallery, 1722 Routh Street
Suite 106, Dallas, Tx 75201

Johannes is an internationally acclaimed artist whose works have shown in galleries and museums in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States. He is best known for large, expressionistic paintings that reveal social injustice and lay bare the suffering and loss caused by hatred, intolerance, and arrogance.

The works in this show explore similar themes, but on a different scale. Here, Johannes offers drawings, primarily in black and white, that are smaller and more personal—but no less expressive and impassioned—and his presence is felt in each forceful stroke. We sense not only the power of their messages, but also the intensity of the artistic and spiritual force that created them. In this way, Johannes exploits the power of drawing as a medium. As he explains: “The pencil gives way to a powerful freedom of expression, which expresses the traces of each movement of the hand. With longing, I dream that this sense of freedom is able to reach those who feel trapped and anxious in a world without freedom.” That dream is realized through the purity and immediacy of the black and white drawings that evoke both the struggles and hopes of life in an often troubled age.

EXHIBIT | BENINI “ALLA GEOMETRIA”

January 27April 23, 2017

Brightly colored paintings born of geometric shapes will open January 27, and continue through April 23rd.

Italian born Benini will be here for both the Opening Reception and an Arcadia Salon talk on March 16.

Following a trip West and a visit with Robert Monroe in Faber, Virginia, Benini started painting geometric shapes, first simple cubes, spheres and triangles, and then combinations, and eventually he added the lyricism of ribbons. The paintings in this exhibition are from his Geometric Period in the 80s and 90s.

Artist Talk with Jay Bailey Dec. 10 at JM Gallery

jaybaileyjmgallery

Join JM Gallery Saturday, December 10 at 12 for an artist talk featuring Jay Bailey where he will discuss his body of work currently on display.

Jay Bailey’s paintings and drawings are full of life. Fluid contour lines layered with puddles and washes of color appear, on one level, just as the materials they are—charcoal and paint on a white ground. But at the same, the lines, colors, and paper actively coalesce into human figures, as if in real time, creating a dynamic interplay between the materials and the forms they represent. The materials and the figures are each engaging on their own terms. The loose, gestural quality of seemingly uncoordinated stains and lines creates a sense of spontaneity and immediacy. And the emergent figures are all too human; as Jay describes them, they are deconstructed souls with scars, imperfections, tattoos, and memories.

Jay has a BA in Fine Art from the University of Nevada in Reno, he undertook post-baccalaureate studies at the San Francisco Art Institute, and he has an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has shown his work in group and solo exhibitions in the United States, Canada, and Australia.

Talk by Marius Silaghi at 8 pm

Haley-Henman Gallery

 

 Marius Silaghi is an artist living and working in Dallas, Texas.  He emigrated from Romania and some of the images are from his time in Eastern Europe.  However place is not an important feature of these photographs.  They are strong universal images of simple objects from the natural and industrial worlds.  His focus is to capture a moment of time in which the simplest detail of texture, light, contrast, and atmosphere is captured as a photograph.  It is through an experience of the photograph that Silaghi invites viewers to create their own art experience, a portal to a moment of simplicity.
Haley-Henman Gallery at Gallery 422 is located in the Trinity Groves neighborhood in Dallas at 422 Singleton Boulevard. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5 pm and by appointment.  Please call or text 214-532-3225 for more information.###

Sightings: Mai-Thu Perret

March 12, 2016 – July 17, 2016
Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, TX 75201

Join us on opening weekend for a conversation with Swiss-born exhibition artist Mai-Thu Perret, who has spent the past 16 years making work born from a fictional feminist art commune she created called The Crystal Frontier. Set in New Mexico, the imaginary women of the commune make work that runs the visual gamut, from the painterly to the sculptural. More on the exhibition here

For Sightings, Perret will build on this project, installing recent ceramics and paintings, along with a new body of work that relates her interest in utopian societies to the recent development of a secular Kurdish community in the Syrian region of Rojava.

“I don’t think utopian ideas are bound to fail, but quite likely when they become real or succeed they stop being called utopias.” – Mai-Thu Perret

Complimentary wine reception with RSVP. FREE with admission. FREE for Members.

Kyle Hobratschk Artist Talk Dec. 9 at JM Gallery

JM GALLERY presents  ARTIST TALK with Kyle Hobratschk
 
DECEMBER 9 // 6:30PM
JM GALLERY presents an ARTIST TALK with Kyle Hobratschk. Join us on Wednesday, December 9 at 6:30PM to hear Kyle talk about his exciting new body of “elastomeric” works and how he uses them to explore the relationships between two-and three-dimensional space and the serial production of images.
ABOUT THE WORK OF KYLE HOBRATSCHK // Kyle offers a series of intimate, aquatint prints and monumental oil paintings of architectural structures that call to mind cornerstones, headstones, ancient temples, barns, warehouses, and silos. But these are not actual buildings. Rather, they are imaginary constructs that are viewed equally as powerful structures or containers of vacant space. Kyle presents them from multiple perspectives and orientations, creating juxtapositions that animate and give new meaning to the spaces they both occupy and define.
The works of Hobratschk are on display and available at JM Gallery until December 19.
For media enquiries please contact Lacy Ball, lb@hasevents.com214.534.8064

MY MOMENTARY PERCEPTION OF THE WONDER AND BEAUTY TO BE ALIVE IN THE WORLD

A solo exhibition of new paintings

November 4-28, 2015

Opening Reception:  Saturday, November 7, 5-8 pm

A conversation with the artist: Saturday, November 21 at 3pm

Haley-Henman at Gallery 422

422 Singleton Boulevard, Dallas, Texas 75212

DALLAS, Texas (October 4, 2015) Haley-Henman proudly presents the third solo exhibition of new paintings related to Gisa Elwazir’s exploration of organic abstractions.  The solo exhibition titled, My Momentary Perception of the Wonder and Beauty to be Alive in the World will show at Gallery 422 from November 4-28, 2015 with a reception for the artist on November 7 from 5-8 pm.  In addition, a conversation with the artist will be on Saturday, November 21 at 3 pm.  The gallery and events are free and open to the public.
Building on her exhibitions Allegro Energico, Ma Non Troppo (2013) andin the Valley of the Many-Colored Grass (2014), she again”invites the viewers to relive an atmospheric memory in their relationship with nature, and draw them to intuitively respond to tones, textures, patterns and structures, which evoke landscapes and mindscapes” (Gisa Elwazir, Artist Statement 2014, in the Valley of the Many-Colored Grass).

This third iteration is a testimony of a powerful creative process that keeps expanding the boundaries of the possible.  An encounter with these paintings brings to mind Lawrence Weschler’s book, “Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees”.  Although he was writing about Robert Irwin’s post-abstractionism, this dictum serves well in the way we approach each painting in this exhibition.

Haley-Henman at Gallery 422 is located in the Trinity Groves neighborhood in Dallas at 422 Singleton Boulevard.  Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 5 pm and by appointment.  Please call 214-946-2255 or 214-532-3225 for more information.  ###

In conjunction with the exhibition Navigating the West: George Caleb Bingham and the River opening in October, the Amon Carter Museum has commissioned Chicago-based artist Terry Evans to photograph the Trinity River as it runs through Fort Worth. Evans is one of the nation’s acclaimed landscape photographers, and her works offer Amon Carter visitors an opportunity to think about our local river in the context of Bingham’s nineteenth-century work.
