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.”

FALL 2019 EXHIBITIONS

KAREN KILIMNIK

SPRÜTH MAGERS, LOS ANGELES
SEPTEMBER 12 - OCTOBER 26, 2019
PUBLIC RECEPTION: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 6-8pm

 
'One of the most important representatives of figurative painting, sculpture, video and installation in the last four decades, Karen Kilimnik continues to produce work that is as diverse as it is groundbreaking. The artist brings together historical cultural references - including ballet, the aristocracy, 14th to 18th-century painting, Romanticism, and the Second World War - with the spheres of books, music, film and television. Her scenes, characters, and symbols are recognizable to many from the realms of art and world history, fairy tales, or the pages of magazines, yet they are rendered surreal and often unnerving through the artist’s deft manipulations of both content and material. Remarkably, Kilimnik’s presentation at Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles, is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, and includes recent paintings and sculptures, alongside videos and sculptural work stretching back to the 1990s.'   http://spruethmagers.com/exhibitions/508

DON NICE (1932 - 2019)

Painter and Pop Artist Dies at 86

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the New York artist Don Nice. Nice was recognized for his Hudson River scenes, oversized still life images and non-traditional shaped canvases. In 1988, he created a special limited edition print of colorful musical instruments for Lincoln Center titled, Festival Predella. We appreciate his artistic contribution to our community and will miss him greatly.

TERRY WINTERS

 Facts and Fictions, Curated by Claire Gilman

Terry Winters has said that, as a young man mesmerized by Minimalism, he was led by the desire to draw “away from that blankness and toward developing an imagery that could play a role in my work.” This effort precipitated the atmospheric paintings inspired by scientific illustrations of organic specimens for which he first became known in the early 1980s. The seventy—eight works in this retrospective will follow Winters’s development from that time through the more fully abstract approach that has occupied him since the ’90s, with dense weaves of swirling, crisscrossing lines and scattered blips, and will include more recent drawings that reclaim shapes reminiscent of his earliest phase within the more complex spatial context he’s since developed—what he’s called a “vitalized geometry.”

Wolf Kahn at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe

WOLF KAHN
Ameringer McEnrey Yohe, New York, NY
November 19 - December 23, 2015

 

Chelsea gallery Ameringer McEnrey Yohe celebrates its exhibition of new paintings by Wolf Kahn. The eighty-eight year old artist, perhaps best known for his paintings of wooded landscapes, meadows and barns, continues his use of memory, imagination and vivid color in his newest paintings. However, his recent body of work reflects a shift away the precision and accuracy of the image, and focuses more on inventive modes of working. The exhibition, which opened November 19th, will remain in the gallery through December 23rd. Read more about the exhibition here.

Wolf Kahn participated in the Vera List Art Project in 2003.

Robin Rhode for Performa15

ARNOLD SCHÖNBERG'S ERWARTUNG: A PERFORMANCE BY ROBIN RHODE
Times Square, New York, NY
November 7th, 8th, 2015

As part of the performance biennial Performa15, South African artist Robin Rhode transformed the public space of Times Square into an operatic venue. On stage, Rhode's rendition of composer Arnold Schönberg's Ewartung, a one act opera about love, loss, sorrow and grief. For Rhode, the protagonist of Ewartung, preformed by soprano Carole Sidney Louis, echoed the desperation and hardships faced by many South African women after the fall of the Apartheid as men were exiled or left home in search of work. Originally set in a moonlit forest, Rhode draws likeness to the artificially lit, towering space of Times Square, weaving layers of contemporaneity and allegory into an age-old narrative.  

Read more about the performance on Broadway World and the New York Times.
