In the middle of the Weinberg / Newton Gallery in Chicago is a large, lush sculpture made of moss, orchids and plastic. Monument, created by Regan Rosburg is believed to symbolize regeneration and beauty.

It is one of the many works in the Human / Nature exhibition that captures the urgency needed to act on climate change and imagines a dystopian world where no action has been taken.

The three-month exhibition opens on January 14 and represents a unique partnership between the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists and the Weinberg / Newton Gallery. Human / Nature is organized by Cyndi Conn, member of the Board of Directors of the Bulletin.

“In works as beautiful as they are powerful, this show addresses the issues of drought, pollution, natural disasters, environmental racism and extinctions that are occurring across the world,” Conn said. “Beyond simply emphasizing the urgency of its moment, however, this show offers hope, describes tangible solutions, and encourages audiences to understand that by acting now, we can create a sustainable and resilient future. It is not too late.”

Human / Nature includes AI-generated paintings, textiles, and videos from international artists such as Matthew Ritchie, Laura Ball, Stas Bartnikas, Donovan Quintero, Obvious, and Karen Reimer. The exhibition also includes video interviews with climatologists and experts who offer concrete ideas on how to contribute to a sustainable future.

“By working with leading contemporary artists, designers and creative communicators, the Bulletin seeks to broaden the conversation, generating innovative ways to frame critical issues around peace and security,” said Rachel Bronson , President and CEO of the Bulletin. “In recognition of the 75th anniversary of the Doomsday Clock and our commitment to mobilize the public around the climate change emergency, the Bulletin is delighted to partner with the Weinberg / Newton Gallery to Human nature.”

The exhibition marks the latest collaboration under the Bulletin’s science of the arts initiative to showcase works that capture the public’s imagination, spark citizen engagement and encourage creative solutions to the world’s greatest risks. humanity.

Human / Nature takes place January 14 – March 19 at the Weinberg / Newton Gallery at 688 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago. Learn more about http://www.weinbergnewtongallery.com/exhibitions-31-human-nature/.

A NEW exhibit is coming to a museum to celebrate history, as well as some key current themes.

The Braintree Museum is opening a new exhibition, “The Art of Friendship, in collaboration with the Warner Textile Archive from January 22 to July 2.

The exhibition explores the friendship and creativity of textile designer Marianne Straub and artist Denise Hoyle during the 1950s and 1970s, where they first united their works.

Marianne and Denise became close at Great Bardfield due to their common interests as well as their shared European status, with Marianne from Switzerland and Denise from France.

Many of Marianne’s fabrics from the Warner Textile Archive collection at the Warner Textile Archive will appear alongside Denise Hoyle’s private collection of collages, watercolors and ceramics.

Denise’s work will also show famous tales like Pinocchio, Dick Whittington and Puss in Boots.

The exhibition was made possible by support from Denise and Nina Hoyle and the Emma Mason Gallery in Sussex, as well as donations from the Felsted Arts Society and Essex Lacemakers to support the exhibition.

Museum Exhibitions and Collections Curator Claire Willetts said: “This is a wonderful exhibit and story with a great story and key themes.

“The story behind this is great, they say most people would have sat on a piece of fabric from Denise in the ’70s on the London Underground, and all of her woven fabrics made in Braintree.

“The subject of friendship and togetherness touches the house even more with the past two difficult years.”

Edgeworthstown Library Hosts Nostalgia Art Exhibition https://911gallery.org/edgeworthstown-library-hosts-nostalgia-art-exhibition/ Thu, 06 Jan 2022 08:03:13 +0000 https://911gallery.org/edgeworthstown-library-hosts-nostalgia-art-exhibition/ The launch which took place just before Christmas was followed by a charming gathering of locals and guests from as far away as South West Kerry.

The launch which took place just before Christmas was followed by a charming gathering of locals and guests from as far away as South West Kerry.

Currently reside in Abbey Road. Studios, sister of the Luan Gallery, Athlone, Ciara is also based in Ballinskelligs in Kerry where she works at the Cill Rialaig Artist Retreat.

It was only fitting that Eamonn Brennan, himself a native of this beautiful part of the world but living and teaching in Longford for many years, was invited to officially open the exhibition.

He is very familiar with the beautiful landscape, history and heritage of this region and was familiar with the theme of Ciara’s exhibition titled “Nostalgia”.

Cill Rialaig, once a famine village and now converted into an artists’ retreat by famous patron Noelle Campbell Sharp attracts artists from around the world who are inspired by this secluded setting of breathtaking beauty.

Speaking at the opening of the exhibition, Eamonn Brennan recited wonderful old Irish phrases that resonated with the theme of the exhibition – “Oidhreacht ár sinsir bundleloch ár ndóchas” which translates to “the legacy of our ancestors is the cornerstone of our hopes ”.

Ciara speaking to the Chief said she was “delighted to be hosting her first solo show in the county at the beautiful new community library in her hometown of Edgeworthstown”.

“These paintings are an intuitive response to personal memories and stories,” she said.

“This corpus is like a song, I record my journey through painting. Between the wilderness of Kerry and the Longford Lowlands and everywhere past and present in between, the places greatly inform and inspire my art.

“I see these abstract paintings as living entities, containing stories and mystery. There is no finality for them and maybe people will recognize some of the themes in play and it will spark their own memories. “

In two vibrant paintings titled “Swingboats” and “Candyfloss,” Ciara remembers attending a carnival as a child, where the library now stands in its three-story glory. Most of the paintings are associated with verses from Ciara’s own poems.

Eamonn Brennan congratulated Ciara on the exhibition – “The first in this sacred place, which inspires peace, contentment, devotion and above all calm.

“This stillness is evidenced in the painting ‘Requiescat’ where the artist has set aside Oscar Wilde’s poem of the same name in honor of his sister, Isola, who still rests in the nearby cemetery.

The exhibit will run at the Edgeworthstown Community Library until January 31, so come and take a look. To learn more about Ciara, you can follow her on @cicituite or visit www.ciaratuite.com or contact her at tuiteciara@gmail.com.

Terry allenthe creative process of is a mystery even to him. In fact, he never knows where inspiration will take him. Although he created works in many disciplines, Allen was first known as one of the greatest narrative songwriters in country music, starting with the cult concept album Outlaw from 1975. Juárez. Although he continues to write and release complex country albums, the most recent being that of 2020 Just like Moby Dick—Allen’s work as a visual artist is at least equal to that of his legendary musical career.

But the former Guggenheim Fellow and several NEA Fellows with pieces in collections around the world, including at modern Art Museum and the Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles, creates art with little regard for the resulting media. He does not find inspiration and thinks to himself, it is a song, Where, it is certainly only a painting. Hell, sometimes it’s both. This is the case with many of his pieces in MemWars, an art exhibit that opened at the Blanton Museum of Art on December 18, which deals, as Allen puts it, “this battlefield of memory, I guess.”

“Wolfman of del Rio (MemWars),” for example, a mixed media work on paper created between 2018-19, shares a title with the fourth track from Allen’s 1979 double album. Lubbock (on everything). In the painting, images of a man and a wolf merge, just like the past with the present, and most importantly, Allen’s musical life becomes indistinguishable from his visual art. Basically, that’s how he creates.

“They’ve always been a thing to me. Playing music or creating visual pieces, whatever your sense of curiosity or where it takes you, I’m ready for it, ”says Allen. “This thing of trying to categorize things… I really don’t care about that.”

“Wolfman” joins about 21 other drawings, “densely hung,” at the request of Allen of Blanton’s deputy director of curatorial affairs, Carter E. Foster, on one side of a long black curtain in the contemporary gallery at the museum floor. Opposite is a multi-screen video installation, with Allen on one side and his wife, artist and writer Jo Harvey Allen on the other. They alternately tell stories about the songs’ possible origins, after which the two faces disappear and Allen appears on a third screen, performing with his back to the audience as he and his piano roar down a long, flat highway for over an hour. . Video isn’t necessarily connected to other visual pieces, Allen says, but similar themes emerge when the exhibit is viewed holistically.

“It’s always a mystery where a song comes from, even at the most obvious, it’s always a mystery that it becomes a song to me,” Allen says. “This song kind of deals with that idea.”

Allen met Foster through a mutual friend, museum director Kippy Stroud, who hosted an annual residency in Maine for artists, writers and curators each year. About 10 years ago the two were in Maine and Foster saw Allen’s works during a residency presentation. Foster says he “seemed crazy not to” organize a contemporary art exhibition for Terry Allen at the Blanton when another colleague suggested it. Prior to that, however, in 2015, Stroud passed away suddenly during one of the residences. In thanks to Stroud who brought Allen and Foster together, MemWars includes a song called “Song For Kippy”.

“She had an everlasting influence on everyone she came in contact with, and I’m not sure if she really knew the impact she had on people,” Allen said. “But then, for me, that was a real anchor in this show.”

Much of the exhibition touches on people like Stroud, whose experiences left a deep mark on Allen. One of them talks about his cousin’s failed attempt to perform a second act as a professional archer following a dishonorable discharge during his fourth tour of Vietnam. “The war basically killed him, but it took about 40 years to do it,” Allen says.

Another, “Roadrunner”, tells of a high school friend who was killed in early Vietnam. A high school track and field champion, he had roadrunners tattooed on his calves and when he died in action he was identified by these markings. Allen’s astute listeners might recognize the name “Blue Asian Reds (for Roadrunner),” a 1979 song written from the perspective of his friend’s grieving girlfriend.

“He was the first person to make war a reality for me,” Allen says. “I was in art school in California and got a call saying it blew up in Vietnam. And it was just inconceivable to me if this human that I knew and who was a friend of mine was there. There are songs in the series that address that.

Allen says that while these plays deal with the battlefield of his memory – and often real settings of war – his work was not born out of a cathartic triumph over emotion.

“It’s more of a cold-blooded thing to do something,” he said. “You just do that thing and then you step back and maybe try to come to terms with it and figure out what it is. But it’s really about the thing. It’s not about you; it’s about you; it’s about what you do.

MemWars runs until July 10, 2022, at the Blanton Museum of Art.

Pakistan is no less so in terms of talent, and as in any other field, the country has a lot in the field of the arts. Unfortunately, despite being an asset to the country, Pakistani artists and designers are not sufficiently encouraged and promoted.

However, Pakistan is now ready to host the first immersive art exhibition, Genesis 50+, an NFT exhibition today (December 30) and the day after tomorrow (January 1, 2022), which could prove to be revolutionary in allowing Pakistani artists to generate huge income in the future.

This first-of-its-kind exhibition aims to explore and create a dialogue with artists and creators through different mediums of new-age media and to develop an understanding of immersion in the future with new tangible means of expression and intangible.

Event curator Zain Mursaleen, who is also an artist, believes the event will prove to be a milestone for the Pakistani artist community as more than 50 Pakistani artists will enter the metaverse, where significant investment are made all over the world.

Talk to Geo.tv, Mursaleen said the world holds NFT art exhibitions frequently, but no one in Pakistan had come up with the idea until now. He said it will be an event where a large number of unknown artists get massive exposure for their work and talent.

“Since Pakistan does not currently allow cryptocurrency trading, this is only a community building exhibit and focuses on introducing our artists to the metaverse and connecting them to the rest of the world. “said Mursaleen.

He said that no one sells or buys things in this exhibition, but once Pakistan allows cryptocurrency transactions, such events will benefit artists and creators in Pakistan as well as the community and in the country in an exceptional way.

Speaking about how he welcomed such a large number of attendees for the exhibition, Mursaleen said he is in contact with artists and creators only through the internet.

As Mursaleen shared his experience, he pointed out how useful and fast the internet space is.

“It took me barely 30 or 40 days to get all the participants together for the event when I connected with them via the Internet when it would have taken almost a year if I had tried to connect in nobody, ”he said.

Mursaleen said the response he received from the artists was overwhelming as each of the artists and creators wanted to participate. However, he said no one knew how to do it.

Sharing details of the two-day event, Mursaleen said it will take place in two phases. The first phase will be a live open mic session on Twitter, @zainulmursaleen and @NftismWorld, where participants will discuss their work, experiences and expectations.

The session will open at 6 p.m. and run until 10 p.m., while the second session will start at 4 p.m. on the second day and end at 11:30 p.m. In a second phase, the link to the immersive online virtual gallery will be shared today at 8:30 p.m. which will be accessible to all.

Mursaleen said people are invited to join the session so that they can find out more about the exhibition and the artists participating in it.

Correlative contradiction – Exhibition view

Robert Lösch depicts the correlation of opposites necessary for existence such as chaos and order in paintings and photographs.

Sculpture, painting, architecture should not be used as wedges to divide our experience of art and life; they are there to link, correlate, link dream and reality.

– Friedrich Kiesler

ST. PöLTEN, BASS AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA, December 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Photographer, graphic designer, filmmaker and artist Robert Lösch shows in his latest exhibition “Korrelatives Kontradikt” (“Correlative contradiction“) https://www.robertloesch.at/korrelatives-kontradikt/ from 12/06/2021 to 01/07/2022 at NV Center Galleries (St. Pölten) his personal examination of existence itself, in the form of the contrast between chaos and order. His interdisciplinary works describe the interactions between planned and random that are necessary for life. The exhibition is a combination of individual works and series. The contrasts extend from the large image to the smallest detail and thus form a contextual framework. The great unifying element is the often interdisciplinary and precise examination of the stories hidden in the background, which relate to the fundamentals of existence. In this way, emotional as well as geometric themes are treated. Physics, mind and heart ultimately resonate in unison, especially due to precise graphic design or a random image felt.

“Correlative controdiction”

Robert Lösch studied architecture at the Technical University of Graz (A) and Politecnico Milano (I) as well as photography at Graphische Vienna (A) and graduated from the Master School for Communication and Design at Graphische Vienna (A) ). Previously he also exhibited at Kunsthaus Graz (A), Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna (A) and designforum Vienna (A) among others. His love for architecture, his penchant for precision and his passion for photography are reflected in all his works and always alternate not only in their nature but also in their expression. The name of the exhibition is partly composed of his own verbal creation and denotes a state of real oppositions which, precisely because of their disparity, form a coherent whole. The interdisciplinary techniques employed range from painting to photography to driving motorcycles.

Among many other works, this exhibition focuses particularly on two pieces. “Herniated“(Engl.” Low “) (https://www.robertloesch.at/hernieder ) is both a tribute and a questioning of the old master Luca Giordano. His probably most famous painting “The fall of the rebel angels” raises a few questions to be looked at more closely, which Robert Lösch takes up in his new interpretation and, among other things, sheds light on in a socio-critical way. The second main work of the exhibition is entitled “Fire & Earth“(https://www.robertloesch.at/fire-earth ) and represents an attempt to capture emotion as memory. It deals with forgetting and the distortion of memories across time and space. In the end, through many paths it all suddenly ends in a painting almost 2m ^ 2 in size, made with a motorbike in a ruined castle.

works of the exhibition

“Fire & Earth”

Series of three preliminary works and one main work: “Enginge Pouring” or “Acrylic Acceleration” on canvas, 190 x 105 cm (https://www.robertloesch.at/fire-earth )

Space and time meet at this point. Art, design, technology and history attempt to capture a single thought with all their power, to manifest an emotion.

“Herniate”

Triptych: photograph on transparent self-adhesive film and translucent VSG glazing, 3x: 66 x 161 cm (https://www.robertloesch.at/hernieder )

Exhibited for the first time in the Bassano room of the Kunsthistorisches Museum (khm), the original windows are a gift from the khm. The work refers to a painting by the old master Luca Giordano. He reinterprets aspects of his work in a socio-critical context.

“Nicaragua – Fight for freedom”

Painting (pigment / acrylic on canvas): 200 x 115 cm; two photographs on canvas: 145 x 100 cm (https://www.robertloesch.at/nicaragua-freedom )

Nicaragua is fighting for its freedom and finds itself at the crossroads between peace and violence. The turmoil of the country is expressively portrayed. The painting was created in cooperation with Nicaraguan artist Rebeca Mandlberger and also originally served as a projection screen for an art video. The photographs were taken by Robert Lösch during a stay in Nicaragua and are superimposed on photos of lost places.

“LASPP – Live Action Splatter Painting (Photography)”

Open series: acrylic splash on canvas, main image: 160 x 110 cm (https://www.robertloesch.at/laspp-live-action-splatter-painting-exhibition )

The canvas as a projection screen for a single moment. The color in the flow through space is photographically captured at the exact moment of “creation”. But here, the emphasis is not on photography, but on its imprint in the world: the image on the canvas.

“Interlacing”

Open series: repainted from a photograph on canvas, all images: 125 x 85 cm (https://www.robertloesch.at/verschachtelung )

Everything in the world stands in a multi-layered, multi-dimensional space. The “interlacings” are nested meta-images of the second iteration, images of images of images.

“Megalomania”

acrylic / pigment on canvas: 70 x 100 cm (https://www.robertloesch.at/megalomania )

The mania for ever larger mega-infrastructures, for spatial densification, is leading us towards an unknown future. Whether full of unimaginable possibilities or meaning, darkness is often purely subjective.

“2D / 3D”

Open series: acrylic / pigment on canvas: various formats (https://www.robertloesch.at/2d-3d )

Space is as much an illusion as the surface. The nesting, however, thanks to the correlation of all the components, creates a perspective that is more fatamorgana than a true spatial construction.

A Rapid Eye Movement exhibition, curated by Timmah Ball and Raina Peterson, will be on display at the Wyndham Cultural Center next year,

The show will take place from Thursday January 20 to Sunday March 6

The exhibition can be summarized as follows:

“During sleep, our brain goes through five different phases. One of them is rapid eye movement (REM) where our eyes move rapidly in various directions. This is where most dreams occur, influencing our memory and mood.

In an unexpected time of closure, separated from bodies, place and community, sleep has a new meaning and a new materiality. It shapes our consciousness, our movements and our social interactions.

As the city comes to a halt, our dreams have exploded, populating our minds with limitless visions and utopian desires. Rapid Eye Movement asks how we imagine and live through time, space, and our bodies, even as bureaucracy contains us.

Catch these ideas during your waking hours at the Wyndham Art Gallery in a guest exhibition curated by Timmah Ball and Raina Peterson, showcasing the work of a range of artists exploring these possibilities.

The Wyndham Art Gallery is located at 177 Watton Street, Werribee and is open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The opening of the exhibition will take place on January 20 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., depending on COVID restrictions.
