assemblage

An assemblage of Arts & Culture focused on New York & London.
Assembled by Megan N. Liberty

Small. Opens today at the Drawing Center

"This group exhibition features a selection of international contemporary artists who adopt an intimate format to explore issues related to visual perception, personal and historical memory, the construction of gender stereotypes, and the power of the imagination."

"Highly regarded as both a leading practitioner of conceptualism and an influential educator at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), Charles Gaines is celebrated primarily for his photographs, drawings and works on paper that investigate systems, cognition and language."

Ray Johnson Designs opens today at MoMA! I am looking forward to seeing the work that Bookforum’s Albert Mobilio refers to as “recombinations” in his recent article on Johnson.

Digital Handwork by Kerry Doran & Lizzie Homersham

"The transfer of resources to an internet that knows none of the limitations previously imposed by a building’s walls and opening hours means we carry the burden of constant access in our hands. The substitution of physical documents with digital files, of traditional architecture with digital infrastructure, implies weightlessness. But  "immateriality" is heavy."

Check out this awesome article by my fellow scholar and friend, Kerry Doran, and her co-writer Lizzie Homersham.

In one of the final remarks of her talk last Monday for the Dia Art Foundation’s Artists on Artists lectures, Frances Stark hit on the essence of the series: “Being an artist is about falling in love with other artists.” Rather than simply lecture about Robert Ryman’s art, Stark used slides showing scanned pages of text, juxtapositions of both artists’ work and studios, and silent video clips to demonstrate the feeling of another’s influence on your own practice.
