The art season is about to begin which means the Fall exhibitions are underway. We are pleased to announce that some of Graphicstudio’s own visiting artists will be showcasing their works in major exhibitions around the world this Fall. From New York to Hong Kong, be sure to get the latest updates on some of your favorite artists’ exhibitions this year. Below are a few of the exhibitions and some information provided about their contributions.
Spill / Frame, a solo exhibition of new paintings, drawings, and sculptures by Los Angeles based artist, Iva Gueorguieva will feature a new large-scale triptych painting titled “Man Hunt,” as well as three additional paintings, three sculptural wall reliefs, and several works on paper. Whether working with painting, drawing or sculpture, Gueorguieva creates complex, frenetic environments by interweaving precise line drawings with strips of collage, textured rubbings of pigment, and large washes of color.”
Plaster Surrogates Colored and Organized by Andrea Zittel
“The basis of the collaboration is Allan McCollum’s Plaster Surrogates, a series he began in 1982, which is a variation of his Surrogate Paintings that began in 1977-78. Plaster Surrogates Colored and Organized by Andrea Zittel marks a new foray into a communal artist practice where two artists and friends challenge the conceptions of mass production using hand-made objects and distinct aesthetic and organizational choices.”
Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital
“Out of Hand will be the first major museum exhibition to examine this interdisciplinary trend through the pioneering works of more than 80 international artists, architects, and designers, including Ron Arad, Barry X Ball, Zaha Hadid, Stephen Jones, Anish Kapoor, Allan McCollum’s “Shapes”, Marc Newson, and Roxy Paine.”
Sean Kelly announces ‘Pataphysics: A Theoretical Exhibition, a group exhibition focusing on pataphysical sensibilities in contemporary art, exploring the impact of this quirky and deeply influential philosophy originated at the end of the 19th century by the French poet and playwright Alfred Jarry. Though the definition of ‘Pataphysics – a school of thought that playfully rejects the objective truths of empiricism – is intentionally vague, its implications run deep through many of the important philosophical movements of the 20th century. While existing quietly in the background for decades, recent contemporary art has found alignments with its absurdist principles.
Invariant Interval, a site-specific installation by the VAC’s fall 2013 artist-in-residence Alyson Shotz, presents viewers with a mesmerizing environment constructed of modest materials. Suspended from the Vaulted Gallery’s concrete ceiling, a framework of netted wires holding thousands of glinting silver beads cascades through the space, continually flexing and distorting to create the illusion of movement and momentum. Invariant Interval demonstrates Shotz’s continued interest in transforming insubstantial materials into robust, enthralling forms.
“Lehmann Maupin will be opening its fall season in Hong Kong with the first solo show in China of acclaimed American artist Teresita Fernández, whose conceptual, experiential works are often characterized by an interest in perception and the psychology of looking. The exhibition will be on view from 12 September through 9 November 2013. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, 12 September from 6 to 8 PM.”
“This exhibition highlights Diana Al-Hadid’s unique exploration of art historical references to examine sculptural and pictorial space and convey a world turned upside down. Her recent large-scale gypsum and metal sculptures, small bronzes and drawings are inspired by myriad sources, including Italian and Northern Renaissance painting, Gothic architecture and Hellenistic sculpture.”
