Framations: Friday, 3 May 2013

New exhibits at Framations: "Touched by Violence" and "Portals" photography by Garry Rose

The first of these exhibits introduces the Art and Awareness series of exhibits, beginning with the theme "Touched by Violence." This theme is meant to explore violence in our society and its weighty effects on us as individuals in our daily lives as well as our interactions and emotional response.  The artwork included in this exhibit explores reactions to many instances of violence, some personal and some on the national or international scale. The artwork will be displayed with the artists' statements which bring even more context  and insight. Framations encourages the public to take the time to view the work and also to read each of the statements to see how the artists were inspired and also what they hope the viewer will take away from the exhibit. A portion of sales from this exhibit will be donated to Backstoppers, who provide needed support to the families of fallen first responders.

Also on view "Portals," an exhibit of photography by Garry Rose that focuses our attention on the gateways and paths we take in life. Through his work, Rose asks "The portals that surround us speak to us. We just need to stop and listen. My goal for this exhibit is to get people to notice the portals around them. To stop and think - what were the people thinking and feeling when they built this? What were people thinking and feeling over the years, even through the present, as they use these portals?" Through this exhibit of black and white photography and the book that Rose has published of his images, he invites us to think of where we are, where we are going, and what we share with those that have gone before us.

Both of these exhibits will open Friday May 3 with a reception from 6-8pm. They will remain on display through June 6.

Andrew James: Without the zeroes and ones, the big and the huge don't mean dick (v.1)
May 3 - June 1, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, May 3, 6pm-8pm

Andrew James’s infernal machine, Without the zeroes and ones, the big and the huge don't mean dick (v.1), 2013 scoots on wheels like a Minecraft translation of an intravenous drip. Conceptual Art rejects the purely visual or what Duchamp dubbed "retinal pleasure," deeming it to be facile, in favor of more intellectual, concept-driven approaches to art-making and, for that matter, viewing. Committed, however, to the study of perspective and optics James underpins his experiments with kinetic devices, reflecting an ongoing concern with the representation of motion.

Hours: By appointment only.

Bruno David Gallery: Friday, 10 May 2013

Media Room: Brett Williams: Memory Old and New
Opening Reception Friday, May 10, 2013, from 5 to 9 pm

Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present Yvette Drury Dubinsky, opening Friday, May 10, 2013. The exhibition titled “There and Gone” is inspired by Dubinsky’s intense reaction to the violence and destruction currently happening in Syria and in the Middle East and, presented as a mixed media installation with a group of related smaller works. The exhibition will be on view May 10–June 15, 2013. A catalogue, Yvette Drury Dubinsky: There and Gone, will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.

Dubinsky traveled in Lebanon and Syria in late 2009, exploring astonishing archeological treasures and monuments and befriending two Syrian families. Since then, the historic sites she visited have gone under siege and some have been destroyed. Caught in the crossfire of Syria's war, one family was forced from their Damascus home and is now living as refugees in a mountain village. The other family, from Aleppo, fled to Turkey. Without income, the two families face a dramatic change from the middle class lifestyle they led when Dubinsky met them.

THERE AND GONE deals with bearing witness to Syria's war and the human plight therein as well as Dubinsky's emotions arising as she works from the perspective of her relatively peaceful, parallel existence in the United States. Combining drawings, monoprints, painting, alternative photography, industrial materials and found objects, THERE AND GONE imagines the pain, ruins, rubble and carnage in places which just three years ago were alive and intact.

In the New Media Room, the gallery presents a video-sculpture by Brett Williams. Brett Williams’ new work “Memory Old and New” is an exploration of combining older artwork with recent and new work. The combine process mimics the way the effects of time changes how we remember events and experiences from the past and how the perception shapes new memories and experiences.

This new piece uses an old wooden sculpture with a rubber tube encased in glass from the early nineteen nineties and combines it with a TV and pedestal from two separate installations from the early two thousands. The 30-second video is a new creation using a static shot of the rubber tube element from the original sculpture. The special effects of stars and sound track both created by the artist refer back to his childhood video game consoles like the Atari 2600 and original Nintendo, and his love of 80’s hip hop and hardcore music.

Sandra Marchewa
Opening May 3, 2013, 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Exhibition closes June 7.
When Sandra Marchewa takes up her paints, she must be using both sides of her brain.

How else can she take her whimsical thought and paint it with a really somber edge? She is an artist with a curiously-serious multi-layered vision of the world in which we live. Her visual commentary speaks to and plays with our multi-layered world where arms may hold guns or a garden full of flowers. One hopes that her luminosity wins in our troubling world.

Good Citizen Gallery: Friday, 22 June 2013

Sage Dawson: On Streets Like Ours, In Rooms, Up Collapsing Stairs
May 24 - June 22, 2013
Opening Reception Friday, June 22  6 -10 PM

On Streets Like Ours, In Rooms, Up Collapsing Stairs examines the history of cartographic rendering: mapping to investigate the distinct identities of spaces, dwelling rights, and contemporary perspectives of nostalgia. The work draws from on-site dwelling rights research in India, radical cartography, and phenomenological approaches to documenting abandoned and forgotten sites. Most of the places and objects explored, such as the 1163 Mary Street house in Springfield, Missouri, are nearly invisible to the communities within which they reside, though they remain intact, collecting dust and mildew atop obsolete technologies, peeling tile, furniture, and architectural remnants-such as the bathtub, a part of the 1163 Mart Street house since its construction in 1941. The work examines the production and destruction of space, and its larger impact on the people who encounter it.

Sage will also present an exhibition catalog with an essay by Laura Mallonee and two poems by Andrew Deloss Eaton. Examples Of Sage Dawson's work can be seen at sagedawson.com

Luminary Center for the Arts: Saturday, 4 May 2013

The Luminary and Works Progress Present
Organized by Works Progress (Minneapolis)

On view May 4 – May 25, 2013
Opening Reception on May 4th from 7-9pm

Whole City is a month-long project by Minneapolis-based public art and design studio Works Progress that will bring an unfamiliar eye to the City of St. Louis - asking inhabitants to talk about its identity as a place, as well as the creative life and aspirations of its residents - beginning with the question, What makes us whole?

Across the United States socially-engaged artists and designers are working with and within communities to shape and shift the experience of urban life. In some cases these social practices are central to building the collective identity of a place, strengthening connections and creating new opportunities for the expression of shared ideas, aspirations and culture. In other cases artists are working in the margins, purposefully destabilizing existing networks and power structures. In both cases, socially-engaged artists are pushing our consciousness in wholly new directions.

While artists shaping the identity and creative life of cities through their work is nothing new, there’s a growing emphasis on the economic and community development impact of artist-led “placemaking” efforts. In some cities, a shift in the focus of arts funding to this type of work has led to new sources of economic support for artists, and new demands on their artistic process and the work they create. Other cities have yet to see these funding strategies take root. In either case, questions remain about the relationships between socially-engaged art-making, community and economic development, and the future of our cities.

Using collaborative inquiry and reflection, Works Progress artists Colin Kloecker and Shanai Matteson will explore St. Louis - specifically, the connections and disconnections that socially-engaged artists are exploring through their work and what it could mean for the future of city life.

Throughout the course of an intense one-week residency Works Progress will get to know St. Louis with the help of local artists and organizations. The variety of perspectives shared through face-to-face conversations, short essays and other artistic contributions will be compiled into a free broadsheet publication distributed onsite and put on display at The Luminary from May 4th-25th, inviting collective self-reflection and fearless dreaming about what could be.

This exhibition and its contents will join a national conversation as Works Progress continues to explore the shifting landscape of socially-engaged art-making and urban development through the Whole City project in Minneapolis, St. Paul and other cities.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 17 May 2013

Duane Reed Gallery presents the latest work of Jun Kaneko. Exhibition opens Friday, May 17th with a reception that evening 5 – 8pm. The exhibition will run through June 22nd.

Jun Kaneko, born in Nagoya, Japan in 1942, has continually experimented with the traditional bounds of the ceramic medium to elevate ceramics to the mainstream of contemprary art. Jun Kaneko’s most recognized sculptural form is the boldly glazed, monumental “Dango,” (Japanese for “rounded form,” or “dumpling”). His enormous dango forms, rounded monoliths which range as high as eleven feet, challenge the physical limitations of the material and the firing process.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5pm.

Good Citizen Gallery: Friday, 12 April 2013

Good Citizen invites you to A Broken Line, work by Greg Edmondson
Opening Reception Friday, April 12  6 -10 PM
Greg Edmondson's studio practice frequently employs the use of simple generative systems. These systems are computational by definition and imply a level of predictability.  However, their application produces both foreseeable, and unforeseen results with the potential for mutation, decay and collapse inherent within the system, and it's means of implementation. These works are produced largely by hand, employing a pre-industrial and decidedly imperfect production process.

Repetition, sequence and dispersal have always been the primary means by which information (both biological and technological) is stored and transmitted. These works are fundamentally less about the transmission of specific meaning than the transmission of specific visual information.

Their digital sensibility and hand drawn execution creates a hybrid aesthetic;brimming with information, begging for interpretation.

The River Between Us
April 13 – August 25, 2013

FREE OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, April 13, 2013Â
Laumeier Indoor and Outdoor Galleries
5-7p.m. Public Opening (Artist's Talk: 6p.m.)

Curated by Marilu Knode, Executive Director, Laumeier Sculpture Park and Joe Baker former Director, Longue Vue House and Gardens

Thomas Easterly, Courtney Egan, Matts Leiderstam, Donald Lipski, Ken Lum, Allan McCollum, Jenny Price, Alec Soth, Robert Stackhouse, Mel Watkin, Bernard Williams and Keith Williams

St. Louis and New Orleans have many issues of common concern and are physically linked by the mighty Mississippi River. The River Between Us, will showcase works that reflect how the lives of people in both communities have always been intertwined with the river's role in US history.

The River Between Us will be the fourth in a series of projects Laumeier has organized around the rubric "archaeology of place."  Laumeier's 105 acres, Longue Vue's eight acres and Estate Homes at both sites provide unique backdrops to works that focus on the history of land usage. The exhibition will feature commissions by artists, inspired by the two locations, and historical documents culled from local institutions. Some of the commissioned works will travel to New Orleans in the fall, opening at Longue Vue in September and closing February 2014.

While there are many cities that have grown along the Mississippi, St. Louis and New Orleans are linked through trade and social and cultural exchange dating from the pre-historic Mississippian cultures to today. The series of indoor and outdoor commissioned works responds to the past as the past impacts the future.

In addition to the borrowed works is a checklist of artworks, artifacts and objects titled Loans That Don't Move: a curatorial addendum to The River Between Us exhibition. Organized by Dana Turkovic, Curator of Exhibitions, these resources function as appendix, bibliography and glossary to
the thesis of the exhibition. Loans That Don't Move encourages an experiential personal trip through the ghostly remnants and relics of our past, and in so doing, encourages the viewer to participate in the discovery of the dead souls and creative acts that litter and enliven local geography. Loans That Don't Move are located at the Campbell House Museum, The Missouri History Museum, The Museum of Transportation, The Saint Louis Art Museum and The St. Louis Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Park: 8am– 30 minutes after sunset daily, Indoor Galleries: 10–5pm Tuesday–Friday, 12–5pm Saturday & Sunday. Closed legal holidays.
