Gary Webb at Bloomberg Space, London

For the Bloomberg SPACE exhibition, Webb created an installation of new sculpture which draws on the formality of his past bodies of work. Mirrored palm trees tower from the walls, while a variety of customized power tools are suspended from the ceiling, ‘fighting’ inside a series of colored glass and mirrored boxes all set against the airbrushed kitsch background of a fictional solar system.

Jutta Koether and Kim Gordon at MoMA PS1

One of Mike Kelley’s first forays into popular culture was his album cover – a bedraggled stuffed orange toy—for the LP Dirty (1992) by Sonic Youth who had previously provided the sound for one of his early New York performances Plato’s Cave, Rothko’s Chapel, Lincoln’s Profile (1986). The singer of the band and longtime friend of Kelley’s, Kim Gordon, is joined by Jutta Koether, a visual artist, writer, and member of the artist band XXX Macarena.

Ana and Carl and some other couples

Andrew Roth and PPP Editions is pleased to present a collaborative project created exclusively for the LA Book Fair by Leigh Ledare and Nicolás Guagnini. It consists of an intervention into 126 books on the social sciences: Marxism, psychoanalysis, linguistics, anthropology, philosophy, literary and art criticism, cultural studies, and literature. The intervention consists of circular holes filled with a variation of positions and possibilities within human sexual interaction.

Both sets of orders, that of the humanistic disciplines and that of codified sexuality for sale, cancel and negate each other. Their interactions are regulated by yet another order, that of the cover art in relationship to the pornographic cutout peeping through the hole. This sculptural work will be accompanied by a limited edition artist’s book of 100 signed and numbered copies.

SYMPOSIUM: Who is Jack Goldstein?
Sunday, September 22, 12:30pm

This extended day of discussion brings together a number of artists who emerged alongside Jack Goldstein in the 1970s. It will focus on the legendary Pictures exhibition curated by Douglas Crimp in 1977 as well as the influential post-studio classes of John Baldessari at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles where Goldstein received his MFA. Panel discussions examine the particular circumstances of the art world during the 70s and 80s along with the impact of the Pictures Generation on artists today. Artist and filmmaker Morgan Fisher presents the keynote lecture, and panelists include artists Robert Longo, Matt Mullican, Troy Brauntuch, Kathryn Andrews and Paul Pfeiffer. Art historians Julia Robinson (NYU) and Claire Bishop (CUNY Graduate Center) will moderate the discussions.

Group exhibition:
Painting Forever!

For the launch of this long-term cooperation project, initiated by the Berlin Senate, the four institutions involved—Berlinische Galerie, Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, KW Institute for Contemporary Art and Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin—have chosen painting as the focal point. Under the common title of Painting Forever!, the project rangesfrom individual presentations, through the conceptual group exhibition of well-known painters, to a wide-ranging overview that brings together up-and-coming and established approaches; demonstrating once more how complex and multi-faceted painting in the German capital is. Each individual venue in Painting Forever! sees itself both as a complementary component in the overall project, and as a stand-alone exhibition that can be experienced independently.

Morgan Fisher at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles

Los Angeles Biennial, Made in L.A. 2012

For Made in L.A., Morgan created a site-specific work. Inspired equally by the rigor of conceptual art and the richness of Renaissance frescoes, Fisher’s work occupies two walls and a ceiling—the geometry determined by sight lines from nearby columns—and can be viewed in its entirety only from the corner.

Piero Golia’s Desert Interviews

With John Armleder, Pierre Huyghe, Richard Jackson, and Eric Wesley

Piero Golia (*1974, Naples, Italy) founded in 2005, with his long-time friend Eric Wesley, the Mountain School of Arts, an educational structure that rapidly became a new spot on the cultural map of the city of Los Angeles.

This book, composed of discussions between artists, presents a kind of report on this unique “institution:” teaching methods, academic syllabus, and students’ selection are here explained with metaphors, compared with artistic interaction, and equaled to performances. Not unlike Golia’s work itself, the development of the school and its program follow a poetic of the gesture, of the instant, and of actions recalling Fluxus, Gino de Dominicis’ or Paul McCarthy’s works.

Il Giardino dei Lauri in collaboration with Bortolami Gallery, New York Presents: Jonathan Meese FANTOMMASSOZ (TEMPIOZ de NEROZ) Exhibition dates: May, 16th – July, 10th, 2010 Museo Civico Diocesiano di Santa Maria Dei Servi Citta’ della Pieve (PG) ITALY

Opening reception Saturday, May 15th at 6 pm

FANTOMASSOZ ( TEMPIO de NEROZ) opens a new series of contemporary art projects connected with the activity of Il Giardino dei Lauri. The most important and acclaimed artists of the youngest international generation will create site specific works for the church.
Jonathan Meese will present a new body of work including sculptures and paintings. As he said, “I am a humble servant of art and as such am happy to be a guest at Santa Maria dei Servi”.

A large painted curtain opens the show to introduce the spectators to the artist’s universe. Meese decided to create a theatre stage. Four paintings representing the guardians of Art will be placed in the seventeenth century oval stucco frames. In front of the major altar three sculptures sit on a large painted pedestal; a mother-child group related to an Egyptian Isis sculpture is flanked by two sculptures of guards. Directly behind the altar, sit two smaller sculptures symbolizing a real and metaphorical path toward the new family of art, the Future.

The church of Santa Maria dei Servi opened to the public in March of 2009 and is the most ancient religious place in Citta’ della Pieve. The architecture shifted throughtout its history, from a Medieval to a Baroque style. Pietro Perugino painted “The Deposition from the Cross” for the church.

FANTOMASSOZ (TEMPIO de NEROZ) takes place in conjuction with VIEW, an articulated project of contemporary art in Umbria between Citta’ della Pieve, Magione and Trevi.

Jonathan Meese was born in Tokyo in 1970, lives and works in Berlin. He started his career as a painter and has extended his practice to include performance, sculpture and installation. In the last couple of years his work has been featured in important solo and group shows in private and public museums and collections such as the Guggenheim Museum and P.S.1 in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlino, the CAC in Malaga, the Caixa Foundation in Barcelona, the Kunstraum in Innsbruck, The Essl Museum in Wien, the De Appel Centre for Contemporary Art in Amsterdam, the Staatliche Kunsthalle in Karlsruhe, the Louisiana Museum in Copenhagen, the MAGASIN Center in Grenoble and the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, the Saatchi Gallery in London and the Thyssen Bornemisza in Wien.

Aaron Young is the next artist scheduled for July 17 through September 19, 2010.
