It’s Over There - group show - Simone Subal - NYC

through February 10th 2013

It’s Over There, co-curated by Rachel LaBine, and featuring Matt Keegan & James Richards, Marie Lund, Rose Marcus, Emily Mast, Lucy Skaer, and Viola Yesiltac.

The works in It’s Over There take as their content the act of referring to things and ideas outside of themselves. From photographs to sculptures to film, the pieces on view function as kinds of props or stimuli, posing questions about the performativity of objects and the complex relation between a thing and its representation.

Becky Beasley - Spring Rain - Spike Island - Bristol

through March 31st 2013

British artist Becky Beasley explores relationships between photography and objects, the body and interiority in a way that is highly subjective and yet developed through deep immersion in the thoughts and methods of other artists and writers. Literature is particularly generative for the artist, providing her own work with a place to start from and to journey into.

MICHAEL GENOVESE - Lines and Cracks and Zebras and Horses - OHWOW - LA

through February 9th 2013

OHWOW is pleased to present Michael Genovese’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, titled Lines and Cracks and Zebras and Horses – a recently completed body of work based on lineation, cleave, and the concept implied by the aphorism: “When you hear hoof beats behind you, don’t expect to see a zebra.” A series of plasma-cut steel wall reliefs located throughout the gallery compose a subtle arrangement based equally on materiality and concept.

Gaylen Gerber - Wallspace - NYC

through February 9th 2013

Gerber’s practice focuses on the normative aspects of visual language: the way we, as part of a shared culture, accept certain forms, colors and situations as institutional, or we take them for granted as impartial common ground. These visual norms act as grounds for all other forms of expression and we use them to register difference and create meaning. This exhibition asks viewers to acknowledge but question the authority of the things we are looking at, often by putting their cultural, ideological, and religious connotations in jeopardy.

What gives value to “value”? Through a series of sculptural objects, paintings and displays, Paris Spleen develops a commentary on the creation of value, and the role of optical, aesthetic, and subjective dynamics for such production. Rather than considering this question from the perspective of circulation, the exhibition takes as its starting point the figure of the counterfeiter: for example, a coin “minted” by Diogenes, notorious for debasing his silver alloy with non-precious metals, is represented here as a series of casts of an actual ancient drachma, which was long ago stamped with the Greek philosopher’s initials—counterfeits of the original counterfeit.

Quaytman’s practice is to create installations of painted panels termed ‘chapters.’ The ongoing chapters, begun in 2001, explore formalist and conceptual variations of ideas about painting, as well as the poetic and grammatical possibilities of photography-based imagery. The installations combine abstraction, often with optical effects, and images related to the sites in which the paintings are first exhibited. For the Renaissance Society exhibition, the artist has been researching the history of the museum from the 1970s and 80s, a time when the museum’s director, Susanne Ghez, was presenting important early exhibitions of conceptual art, at the beginning of what would come to be her internationally influential career. Ghez is celebrating her 40th anniversary as Director of The Renaissance Society this year.

Lisa Oppenheim - Everyone’s Camera - Kunstverein Göttingen - Göttingen

through February 24th 2013

Kunstverein Göttingen is pleased to present Lisa Oppenheim’s (*1975) first solo exhibition at a German institution. In the exhibition she continues her exploration of the medium and history of photography. An atmospheric quality runs throughout the works on view, in which pattern, repetition, and the surface of the photograph itself play a central role. Her images of the moon, billowing smoke, flower arrangements, and patterned fabrics are produced through the use of replicated negatives and traditional laboratory techniques, such as the photogram. With motifs that revisit early artistic photography combined with the saturated black or metallic sheen of the paper, Oppenheim’s works constitute a veritable homage to the hand-made print. But despite the lushness of her borrowed imagery, neither romanticism nor nostalgia gains the upper hand. Using appropriation, visual reduction, and serial arrangement the artist engages in a subtle reflection on conflicts that continue to define the photographic medium: between the documentary and the symbolic, between representative and the abstract.

Diagrams are used in the Internet, on television, in newspapers and presentations – simply, in all visual media. Elements of text, image and charts are frequently combined, depending on where they are being used. They are meant to display complex contents, data and information through visual representation. In this process, info-graphics like diagrams, graphs of stock markets or schematic drawings do not just serve display purposes but establish relations, communicate insights and convey arguments pictorially. One crucial task is presenting, organising and imparting knowledge. In a networked society, where images have become core media and where new information is produced every day, the need for visual translations and an illustrative order is patently obvious.
