October 29, 2014

Nohra Haime Gallery welcome's Julie Hedrick's newest series: Alchemy. Through a selection of works on paper and oils on canvas, Hedrick meditates about concepts related to alchemy and its relation to gold. From its beginnings, alchemy's final and absolute objective was transmutation, and specifically, transmutation of any material into gold, also connected to the accomplishment of persona illumination. The search of the philosopher's stone as an elixir of life was directly related to this phenomenon. (more...)

The Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGEThe Reina Sofia Museum Presents REALLY USEFUL KNOWLEDGE
October 29, 2014

The notion of 'really useful knowledge' was originated from the workers' awareness of the need for self-education in the early 19th century. In the 1820s and 1830s, workers' organizations in United Kingdom introduced this phrase to describe 'unpractical' knowledge like politics, economics and philosophy, as opposed to what factory owners proclaimed to be “useful knowledge”. Some time earlier capitalists began investing in advancement of their businesses through funding the education of workers in 'applicable' skills and disciplines such as engineering, physics, chemistry or math.

Carole Seborovski: Works on Paper will be on view at Nohra Haime Gallery, from November 4 to December 8, 2014. In Seborovski's work, paper is the essential medium.

Magali Reus, Bill Bollinger, John Divola Exhibits at Andrea Rosen Gallery 2 Open 10/30Magali Reus, Bill Bollinger, John Divola Exhibits at Andrea Rosen Gallery 2 Open 10/30

Folded and riveted powder coated steel, stitched fleece blanket, wadding, protective plastic mesh, food packaging, powder coated steel. Image courtesy of the artist and The Approach, London. Andrea Rosen Gallery is pleased to present a three-person exhibition of Magali Reus, Bill Bollinger and John Divola. Shifting away from the supremacy of a single object, each artist here acknowledges a more phenomenological experience of material and form. Through strengthening material vernaculars, there is a distinct presence of the body indicated within each of the artists' works that describes both a presence of artist and viewer, as well as the encounter of material as vessel for meaning. This juxtaposition of unique trajectories is a way to not only contextualize work being made now within the established field of contemporary art, but also a way of showing how artists like Divola and Bollinger remain a vital part of the discourse.

Thomas Houseago's MOUN ROOM to be on View in New York CityThomas Houseago's MOUN ROOM to be on View in New York City
October 28, 2014

Houseago is most widely identified with monumental sculptures of the human body. His figures are admired for their brute physicality and a potent tactility redolent of their making. Drawing upon and deftly subverting classical sources, Houseago creates forms that hover between power and vulnerability, old and new worlds. But with 'Moun Room', the artist reverses his standard subject-object relationship and, for the first time, places the viewer in the role of primary figure and active participant. 'Moun Room' invites us to move through space and among complex screens of the artist's carefully layered and pierced materials, rather than to circle an opaque form. It calls upon us to explore its softly glowing channels and unravel the processes by which Houseago has assembled and reassembled physical space in an effort to chart fresh emotional territory.
