On view and upcoming at Ro2 Art





Ro2 Art at The Magnolia Theater
3699 McKinney Ave. Ste. 100 / West Village
May 21- July 5, 2015
Opening Reception:
Thursday, June 4, 6-8pm

365 is the accumulation of a year-long project by Georgiou in which she took a photograph of herself at the moment when she woke up for 365 days. She would then upload the raw image to her Instagram account using the trending hashtag, #iwokeuplikethis, and monitored how many “likes” and comments each image received. This exhibition highlights selected portraits and included a video of all 365 images.

Danielle Georgiou is a dancer, choreographer, and video artist based in Dallas, TX. Her stage and video work deals with puzzles found in femininity- vulnerability, deformity, and beauty. Her work has shown across Texas, New York (Horton Gallery), California (Rogue Fringe Festival), Florida (Bosch Film Festival), Oregon (Portland’s Experimental Film Festival), and Germany (2nd Berlin Besucher Triennial). She exhibited both her performance and video work at the 2013 Texas Biennial, was a part of a three-person show at Eugene Binder Gallery in Marfa, TX, and recently completed a solo show at Women and their Work in Austin, TX. Her video work will be a part of the Edinburgh Arts Festival in the summer of 2015 (at the Garage Gallery).

View on Map      Find Parking
Chance Dunlap’s current body of work revolves around his personal experiences, material interests, and reflects his intrigue with preserving both the roots of his heritage and studio practice. The aesthetic he has developed over the years has it’s roots in the junk piles and simple vernacular installations he grew up very near and interacted with, yet is also laced with cultural references key to his generation.The object is central, yet it’s value is brought up for interrogation. Some of the work follows a direct sculptural path where planned forms or found objects are challenged by improvisational applications. Another stream of work plays with both sculpture and painting, yet being neither, challenges and embraces each while another group of work responds directly to painting and confronts the strange rural mysticism he encountered growing up.

Eberle Fetus

TWU Department of Visual Arts welcomes five artists working mainly with sculptural and assemblage elements for our next exhibition. Each artist uses nature, natural materials and human nature as a springboard to create work that reorganizes nature, plays games on assumptions and takes the commonplace and turns it on it’s head. Very different approaches to sculpture and an inventive use of materials bring these artists together in Supranatural Realistic.

Isa Genzken: Retrospective opens at the DMA


Isa Genzken: Retrospective brings together 40 years of Genzken’s inventive work in the first U.S. museum retrospective of the artist


Dallas, TX—September 11, 2014—The Dallas Museum of Art presents Isa Genzken: Retrospective, the first major U.S. exhibition to encompass the artist’s oeuvre, and the final venue for an exhibition the New Yorker hailed as “dazzling” and the New York Times described as “grand.” The exhibition was organized by the Dallas Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. “Few artists have displayed as much moxie and versatility . . . nor sustained as vast and exciting a career,” wrote the Chicago Tribune about the first comprehensive retrospective of this artist’s epically diverse body of work in an American museum, and the largest to date.


Isa Genzken: Retrospective, on view September 14, 2014 through January 4, 2015, spans 40 years of Genzken’s inventive, audacious, and deeply influential career. The exhibition brings together approximately 100 objects in an astonishing variety of techniques, including assemblage, sculpture, painting, photography, collage, drawing, artist’s books, film, and large-scale installations. A majority of the works in the exhibition are on view in the U.S. for the first time, including the large-scale installation Schauspieler (Actors), while others have rarely been publicly exhibited anywhere.

Working across a diverse array of mediums, Genzken has been inspired by two grand themes: modernity and urban architecture. Her career has also unfolded in chapters, beginning in the late 1970s, and continuing without cease until today, when a new generation has been inspired by the artist’s radical inventiveness. Ranging from large-scale sculptures that limn constructivist and minimalist aesthetics, to rougher, more overtly architectural concrete works that conjure ruins, to paintings, photographs, and found-object installations that have redefined sculpture for a new era, Genzken’s body of work represents both a rare artistic freedom and a disciplined, almost obsessive sensitivity toward the relationship of individuals to their sculptural surroundings.

“We are pleased to be one of the three institutions to organize the largest survey, and the first in America, of undoubtedly one of the most influential sculptors of the past 40 years, Isa Genzken,” said Maxwell L.  Anderson, the DMA’s Eugene McDermott Director. “Genzken’s career has included numerous high-profile international exhibitions, including the German Pavilion of the Venice Biennale in 2007. With the presentation of Isa Genzken: Retrospective in Dallas, the DMA provides a special opportunity for visitors to become better acquainted with the great breadth of her achievements.”

Isa Genzken: Retrospective encompasses Genzken’s work in all mediums, produced over the past 40 years, presenting the definitive picture of this artist’s astonishing achievements throughout her trans-generational career,” said Jeffrey Grove, co-organizing curator of the exhibition.

Highlights from the exhibition:

  • Rot-schwarz-gelbes Ellipsoid ‘S.L. Popova’ (Red-Black-Yellow Ellipsoid ‘S.L. Popova’), 1981, this 17-foot-long work from Genzken’s early period, one of her Ellipsoid works, reflects her growing fascination with the precision of both natural and man-made engineering.
  • Door (Tür), 1988, is part of Genzken’s series of free-standing concrete sculptures on high steel pedestals. These works, with their cubic forms and industrial materials, connect to a minimalist aesthetic, while their handmade quality and resemblance to bombed-out ruins boldly fly in the face of minimalism’s formalist rigor. Beautiful in their extreme austerity, they are also grim embodiments of the disillusion with modernist utopian visions that characterized post-modernity of the late 1980s.
  • MLR, 1992, is a canvas from Genzken’s 1992 series of paintings called MLR, an abbreviation for the phrase “more light research.” Using spray paint, lacquer, and stencils made from a variety of perforated materials, Genzken created an effect reminiscent of photograms—photographic images produced without a camera by placing objects on photosensitive paper and exposing the paper to light.
  • Oil XI, 2007, the centerpiece of a 16-part installation first exhibited in the German pavilion at the 2007 Venice Biennale, evokes the zeitgeist of a world in a state of terror. The installation, with its accumulation of rolling suitcases, calls to mind a transit station that has suddenly been abandoned, perhaps due to an unseen threat. Three astronauts, identified as NASA employees by the insignia on their uniforms, float overhead, as if exploring the ruins of a devastated culture.
  • Schauspieler (Actors), 2013, is on view for the first time during this tour. This multipart installation, completed in 2013, features elaborately altered mannequins dressed in an assortment of clothes, collaged elements, and repurposed sculptural materials. Some of the clothes are Genzken’s own, while others were found or purchased. By calling this ensembleSchauspieler (Actors), Genzken suggests that by moving among the forms we, too, are actors in a theater or on a film set.

About Isa Genzken
Isa Genzken was born in 1948 in Bad Oldesloe, a town outside Hamburg, Germany. In the mid-1970s, as a student at Düsseldorf’s renowned Kunstakademie, she created large-scale stereometric wooden floor sculptures, which gained her early international acclaim. Beginning in the 1980s, she made sculptures in plaster and concrete, ranging in size from maquettes to monumental. In the late 1980s, she expanded her practice to include painting, and by the mid-1990s she was experimenting with architectural forms such as windows made of epoxy resin. From the late 1990s on, Genzken created increasingly complex assemblage installations that engage with the geopolitical issues of our time.

Genzken began exhibiting her work in 1976, when she was the youngest woman to have a solo presentation at the influential Konrad Fischer Galerie in Düsseldorf. She has exhibited internationally since 1980, and has participated in Documenta (1982, 1992, 2002), the Venice Biennale (1982, 1993, 2003, 2007), Skulptur Projekte Münster (1987, 1997, 2007), the Istanbul Biennial (2001), and the Carnegie International (2004). In 2007 she represented Germany at the 52nd Venice Biennale. Recent surveys of her work have taken place at Museion, Bolzano, Italy (2010); Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2009); and Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (2009).

Exhibition Catalogue
Published in conjunction with the first comprehensive retrospective of her diverse body of work in the U.S., Isa Genzken: Retrospective is the most complete monograph on the artist available in English. The catalogue presents Genzken’s career in essays by Sabine Breitwieser, Laura Hoptman, Michael Darling, Jeffrey Grove, and Lisa Lee that explore the unfolding of her practice from 1973 until today, and provides an expansive illustrated chronological overview of her most important bodies of work and key exhibitions.

Here Comes the Sun – Artist Showcase


Here Comes the Sun

Artist Showcase by Roberta Masciarelli

June 21st 2014 @ LuminArté Gallery

1727 E. Levee St

Dallas, TX – 75207

LuminArté’s website: http://www.luminarte.com

Artist’s website: http://www.robbiemas.com

In the artwork of Roberta Masciarelli, the viewer discovers a sacred place assembled from found objects that resonate with a purpose almost forgotten. One finds a soul searching, subconscious yearning to explore the space that inhabits our imagination as well as the infinite space of the universe.  Lyrical lines create action and a sense of energy flowing from the Source, while matter materializes into mechanical forms that initiate a ritual, which is symbolic and meticulous, yet playful and transcendent.
