Chris Hipkiss

June 13 - July 12, 2013

Christopher Payen and Alpha Mason met at the age of 18 in a case of love at first sight. Since the late eighties, the couple has worked under various names in parts of the United Kingdom before breaking from British Suburbia in 2001 for the French countryside. Now under the pseudonym “Chris Hipkiss”, the result of their 20+-year collaboration is a singular and multifarious visual language. Populating these vast, subsuming metropolises and more intimate scenes of a city’s interior, their vocabulary reflects long-developed interests in politics, travel, ornithology, as well as feminism and femininity.


Traversing the ancient and futuristic, the obsessively detailed drawings recall Bosch and Brueghel or Classical frescoes in which all things, living and non, process toward an unknown destination. Wordplay is an important part of this vocabulary. Adorning the tops of buildings or interwoven into figurative forms, phrases such as “Lossless, lossless, lossless” enter in contemporary buzz-words, and this particular one hints at a sci-fi singularity of information, a memory that never loses.


Perhaps representative of the contemporary struggle in identity-seeking, the cities in the Hipkiss universe seem both oppressive and rife with fertile ground. Unfurling in hypnotic repetition, the “cyber-dominas” that inhabit these post-industrial parallel worlds are personas of the artists themselves. By trying on different “uniforms,” some of them historic female figures, some enigmatic, the artists not only lay bare a search for identity, but also the process of two people becoming one unit while proliferating new selves.


This is the first solo exhibition of works by Chris Hipkiss at the Jack Hanley Gallery. The artists have recently exhibited at Ancient & Modern, London (2012), Galerie Susanne Zander, Cologne (2011), and Galerie Michael Haas, Berlin (2009). Works by the artists are represented in several collections, including the Collection Antoine de Galbert, Paris; the Cindy Sherman Collection, New York; and the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam.

Artist Talk with Llyn Foulkes TONIGHT @NEWMUSEUM #LlynFoulkes #artisttalk #newmuseum

Part of Exhibition-Related, in Discussions

On the occasion of his retrospective exhibition at the New Museum, the influential painter and musician Llyn Foulkes will speak about his life and work.

Llyn Foulkes (b. 1934 Yakima, Washington) studied music and art at Central Washington College of Education until he was drafted into the US Army in 1954. After two years of service in postwar Germany, he studied at the University of Washington before moving to Los Angeles in 1957 to attend the Chouinard Art Institute. In 1959, he was included in a group exhibition at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles, where he later had his first solo exhibition in 1961. Shortly after, his first solo museum exhibition was held at the Pasadena Museum of Art in 1962. Foulkes has been included in many important group exhibitions including “Whitney Museum Annual of American Painting,” Whitney Museum of American Art (1967); the Ninth São Paulo Biennial (1967); and the Paris Biennale (1967). He formed his own band, Llyn Foulkes and The Rubber Band, in 1973, which performed at various venues including The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1974, and in 1979 he began building his epic music Machine, which he continues to perform on today. Foulkes received a Solomon R. Guggenheim Fellowship in 1977 and had his first survey exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (1978). His first retrospective was held in 1995 at the Laguna Art Museum (traveled to Cincinnati, Oakland, and Palm Springs), and he was featured in “Helter Skelter: L.A. Art in the 1990s” at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1992). In 2008, he was awarded the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award, and in 2009, he received the Artists’ Legacy Foundation Award. In 2011, he was featured in seven “Pacific Standard Time” exhibitions at institutions in Southern California and the Venice Biennale, and in 2012 his paintings were included in Documenta 13, where he also performed.

Sponsors

“LLYN FOULKES” is organized by the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, and is curated by Ali Subotnick, Curator. The New Museum’s presentation is organized in conjunction with Subotnick by Margot Norton, Assistant Curator.

The New Museum will present the long-overdue career retrospective of Llyn Foulkes, which will also mark the first New York museum exhibition of works by the artist.


An influential yet under-recognized artist of his generation, Foulkes makes work that stands out for its raw, immediate, and visceral qualities. Coming from a tradition of West Coast artists working in assemblage in the ’60s, such as Ed Kienholz and Bruce Conner, Foulkes has consistently challenged audiences and expanded his work into new territories. His presentation at the New Museum will feature nearly one hundred works from the scope of his fifty-year career. These range from the emotionally charged constructions of the early 1960s and his impeccably painted landscapes of the American West, to his deeply disturbing portraits from the late 1970s and his remarkable recent narrative tableaux, which seamlessly blend painting with found materials to create an extraordinary illusion of depth. His diverse body of work resists categorization and defies expectations, distinguishing Foulkes as a truly unique and significant artistic voice.

Christian Holstad: The Book of Hours @ Andrew Kreps Gallery #ChristianHolstad #TheBookofHours #AndrewKrepsgallery

Christian Holstad: The Book of Hours

With Sound Installations by Martin Maugeais

May 11th – June 22nd, 2013

 

The Andrew Kreps gallery is pleased to present The Book of Hours, Christian Holstad’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, which will feature sculpture, installation and drawings in an immersive installation. Enhanced by sound works by Martin Maugeais the show takes as its point of departure the religious devotionals of the same name. 

Books of Hours are often characterized as the “bestseller” of the Middle Ages. The most famous of these religious books were richly decorated with gilding and inks made with pigments of ground precious stones. These books were commissioned by the upper class and were meant to occupy ones time absorbing the reader in the rich and layered visual illustrations of the texts of Christianity. They were named for the time spent pouring through them perhaps in the same way a reader might pour over a morning newspaper. Both documents act as a snapshot of the time in which they were created but differ in their purpose. The Book of Hours promotes the rejection and/or suppression of natural desires as a path of religious enlightenment. In contrast, it could be seen that a contemporary newspaper is filled with stories that are the result of this same rejection of nature that have ultimately lead to spiritual erasure and ecological degradation.

Mirroring street scenes around him through inexplicably crafted soft sculptures Christian depicts this disconnect from nature in a contemporary capitalist society. Discarded diapers both infant and adult lay discarded in a corner with an abandoned stroller - a tree stump emerging from a cobblestoned patch of dirt is hovered over by it’s own amputated trunk grown through an electrical wire and hordes of bees crashing out of the sky in a death fall present the perversity of our contemporary reality with harrowing beauty.

It is this beauty – and the process of the creation of the hand-made environments and their respective monsters that give some accidental hope to these scenes with piles of feces topped with shrimp lovingly sewn of millinery thread and sequins. Sounds of harpsichord and organ emanate from within - the chords of which are derived from the accidental aural events that Martin Maugeais recorded in his daily early morning attempts at a perfect tone giving the scene a Baroque-like backdrop and bringing together the layers of the contemporary Book of Hours.

Christian Holstad has had solo shows at Kunsthalle Zurich, Museum of Contemporary Art Miami, PS1, New York, and has been included in group shows at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, The Power Plant, Toronto, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, MoMA, New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art and the New Museum, New York.

Martin Maugeais lives and works in Paris and New York. He studied computer programming, musical composition and visual music at the University of Paris 8 (Saint-Denis) and completed a Masters degree in in 2012. His practice includes music composition (both instrumental and digital), sound installations, and performing with bands Femme Fractale and The General Society.

Jake and Dinos Chapman : Insult to Injury “Policing the ‘Disasters’ @ YOSHII GALLERY #GOYA #JakeandDinosChapman #Yoshiigallery #980madison

image

Jake and Dinos Chapman. Insult to Injury
May 01, 2013 - June 29, 2013

“Policing the ‘Disasters’ moral injustices, humanist critique will methodically exorcise Goya’s evil from the semi-automatic stutter that scars each of the eighty copper plates with indelible signs of auto-eroticism – even Goya’s fetishized identity must surrender to the moral framework enclosing the ‘Disasters’ itinerant slippages… It is not violence that initiates the causal mechanism, but, as Nietzsche observes, ‘the translation of reality into a morality’ … the Gothic reclamation of Goyaesque horror is evidence of a rare acerbic wit which deserves profound compliment …” 

Excerpt from “Insult to Injury: the Marriage of Reason and Squalor” by Jake Chapman 

Yoshii Gallery is pleased to present “Insult to Injury”, the original Francisco de Goya’s ‘Disasters of War’ prints reworked and improved by Jake and Dinos Chapman. The complete set of 80 etchings will be presented in the US for the first time, and it is their first exhibition with the gallery. 

Too controversial and unpatriotic to be shown in Goya’s lifetime, the first ever edition of ‘Disasters of War’ was posthumously released in 1863. Enfants terribles of British art, the Chapman brothers acquired one of the few remaining sets of the ‘Disasters of War’ prints in 2001, published directly from Goya’s original plates in 1937, as part of their continuous fascination with Goya’s work. 

In this the Chapman brothers deals with daunted, grotesque, and cruel themes from Spanish civil war distilling them into vandalized, victimized consequences. By changing all the visible faces of victims to heads of clowns and puppies, these imaginary characters of ambiguous origin burst in vibrant red, violet and white, and thus emotionally resonate with the rich, historic underlayer by Goya. They are no longer silent or hostile, but rather open to the divergent, worthwhile discussions that are put upon, ordered around, or presented against them. Each plate never forfeits its lyrical sense of mystery or visceral emotional punch, escaping the factual and present characters, which reveal awful, astonishing view of the commonplace. They capture how the figures, transformed by idealism and by context, possess cartoon-like qualities and new meanings in their present state. Diverse as characters shown in the work, these humorously recognizable members of the masses are exonerated. 

image

Jake Chapman was born in 1966 and Dinos Chapman in 1962. They both graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1990 and currently live and work in London. The Chapman brothers’ work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at prominent venues internationally, including Chicken, Pinchuk Art Center, Klev (2013); The Hermitage, St. Petersburg (2012); Museo Pino Pascali, Polignano a Mare, Italy (2010); Hastings Museum, UK (2009); Kestner Gesellschaft Hannover (2008); Tate Britain, London (2007); Tate Liverpool (2006); Kunsthaus Bregenz (2005); Modern Art Oxford (2003) and PS1 Contemporary Art Center, New York (2000), among others.

JOHN CHAMBERLAIN @ Lever House Art Collection #LeverHouseArtCollection #JOHNCHAMBERLAIN

JOHN CHAMBERLAIN

1 APRIL, 2013 - 31 AUGUST, 2013

The goal of the Lever House Art Collection is to form an exciting and impressive collection of art created in the early twenty-first century, and recognize outstanding artists of aesthetic significance. Artists are invited to create site specific art for the Lever House lobby, which is then on extended view for approximately three months, and then purchased for the Collection. Since Lever House was purchased and refurbished by RFR Realty in 1998, the glass-enclosed lobby has been the location for numerous contemporary art exhibitions, including Alexander Calder, Damien Hirst, and John Chamberlain.
