Visit Abelardo Morell Exhibition: 'In the Footsteps of Van Gogh'

On view at Krakow Witkin Gallery until February 25, 2023

'In June 2022, I went to Arles, Saint- Remy and other places in the south of France to make pictures where van Gogh painted. In locating myself within his landscape, I hoped that my pictures would contain – and be touched by – some of the spirit and light in his paintings. Clearly, I did not produce any new “van Goghs,” which is a good thing because I didn’t want to make copies!

Happily, what I came up with was my own take on the light and land in Provence and yet, I think, my landscapes, as different as they may be from the painter’s, still evoke something of his vision. I also believe that some of the images I made suggest the look and atmospheres captured by other 19th century French landscape painters who influenced van Gogh.

The patina and strangeness of the surface that appear in several of my images are products of a photographic tool I call “tent /camera.” I designed this device to allow me, in a periscope-like fashion, to project views of a nearby landscape directly onto the very ground where the tent sits. My camera, on top of the tent, captures a ‘visual sandwich’ comprised of the scenery and the details of the ground all at once, in one picture. And it is in this real/surreal melding of optics, photography and art history where my pictures dwell, creating, I hope a middle world – where both the expansive and the particular can reside at the same time.' – Abelardo Morell


Visit Works by Matthew Brannon at CMCA

Visit the Center for Maine Contemporary Art to see Matthew Brannon's works in the group exhibition, Interior.

"In a state known for its magnificent outdoors, this exhibition brings together works by 10 Maine-based and connected artists that explore the vast world of interior spaces. Spanning installation, painting, photography, assemblage, and printmaking, the artworks on view explore rural and urban spaces ranging from homes, historic spaces, museums, and vehicles.

Whether offering an up-close view of a countertop, taking in the intimacy, grandeur, or decline of domestic space, looking within a moving automobile, or serving as inspiration for abstraction, these artists’ works underscore the rich discoveries that can be found when we turn our attention indoors.

As we move into the fall and winter following two years of pandemic, it is invigorating to be reminded that interiors are far greater than sites of isolation and shelter, and can also inspire imagination, exploration and wonder. Artists featured in the exhibition include Matthew Brannon, Jenny Brillhart, Corinna D’Schoto, Smith Galtney, K. Min, Peter Moriarty, Carrie Schneider, Alec Soth, Gail Spaien, and Jay Stern.

This exhibition is made possible in part by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and by the generous support of CMCA donors and members. Interior is curated by Executive Director and Chief Curator, Timothy Peterson, and Curatorial Associate and Exhibition Manager, Rachel Romanski." - CMCA

Vera List & The Posters of Lincoln Center

We are pleased to announce the exhibition, Vera List & The Posters of Lincoln Center at Poster House. On view thru October 3, 2021.

Poster House’s second mini-exhibition focuses on the contribution made by Vera List to the creation of a poster program advertising the new Lincoln Center complex in 1962.

Inspired by artist-designed posters she had seen in Paris, she earmarked $200,000 as seed money for what would become the List Art Poster Program (later known as the Vera List Art Project), featuring some of the most notable names in contemporary art, from Andy Warhol to Roy Lichtenstein, Ben Shahn to Robert Indiana. Each poster advertises a new building or event at the venue, chronicling how a now-famous New York institution was introduced to the public through posters.

Poster House is located at: 119 W. 23rd Street New York, NY 10011

ARTNews: Marcel Dzama’s Fantastical Visions Bring a Spirited World Alive

Excerpt from ARTNews: "In addition to visions arising from his trip to Mexico, Dzama was at work on a body of drawings related to a commission from the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority’s Arts & Design program for art in and around the city’s subways. Though constrained in terms of what he could say about a project whose future in the coming months might change, he talked about it in the context of a stage work he collaborated on (designs for costumes and sets) with choreographer Justin Peck and composer Bryce Dessner for the New York City Ballet. Premiering in 2016, The Most Incredible Thing served as an update to a dark fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen written more than 140 years ago. Since then, the project has maintained a hold on Dzama’s imagination.

“These are opera or ballet scenes, always with a moon or sun or stars,” he said of drawings that were in the works in April. “I’ve been kind of going in that direction with my art: heavy on the ballet and alchemy and solar systems.” While working with Peck, Dzama conceived a possible follow-up project inspired in part by a costume he made in mind of Loie Fuller, an important early figure in the history of modern dance known to stage spectacles with flowing fabrics and elaborate lighting designs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. “I was considering writing a children’s story about these kids who come into a garden and get changed into moths by a wizard. It had something to do with the moon as well,” Dzama said. “We never ended up doing it, but it all ended up in these drawings.”
