Lorenzo’s Reina Sofia Gift, Mexico’s Baroque Museum Stalled, and More
18/09/2014
Lorenzo’s Reina Sofia Gift, Mexico’s Baroque Museum Stalled, and More— Lorenzo’s Reina Sofia Gift: Gallerist Soledad Lorenzo has donated 385 works from her collection to Madrid’s Reina Sofia Museum, including pieces by 90 artists, primarily Spanish. Lorenzo closed her own gallery in 2012 after 26 years of operation and now wants the works to have greater public access: “One of the meanings of art, for me, is to educate us, so there is no better place than the Reina Sofia Museum,” she said. [ARTnews] — Mexico’s Baroque Museum Stalled: Just a month after its ground-breaking ceremony, construction on the $105 million building for the International Baroque Museum, designed by Toyo Ito, was denied proper environmental permits. [TAN] — Getty Foundation Launches Conservation Initiative: Through grants of $50,000 to $200,000, “Keeping It Modern” seeks to preserve 10 international landmarks of modern architecture, including Jørn Utzon’s Sydney Opera House in Australia and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House in Chicago. [LA Times] — New Constable Work Discovered: In preparation for the John Constable show at the Victoria and Albert Museum, workers discovered an oil sketch of Hampstead Heath, dated 1821, under the lining of another painting. [Daily Mail] — Ai Weiwei @ Alcatraz: The artist discusses the political — and personal — significance of his upcoming jailhouse exhibition, “@Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz.” [NYT] —  Heimo Zobernig will represent Austria at the Venice Biennale. [ARTnews] — A drawing faxed from David Hockney to a friend in 1988 will be auctioned in New York. [ArtDaily] — Frank Gehry’s Eisenhower Memorial design remains in limbo as the committee was unable to convene enough members to vote. [Washington Post] — MacArthur Foundation grant winner Alison Bechdel will use her newfound funds to write another memoir.

5 Must-See Gallery Shows: Kristen Schiele, Jason Rhoades, and More
18/09/2014
Kristen Schiele at Lu Magnus Gallery, through October 12 (55 Hester Street) “It feels as modular and free as I can make it — lots of details, color, and textures,” says Kristen Schiele of the paintings, collages, and wall sculptures in her latest exhibition, “Spirit Girls.” Schiele — who recently gave birth to a baby girl — has created these works as a thought experiment, projecting the sort of environments her daughter might inhabit and encounter as she becomes a young adult. Overall, it’s a massive development of what the artist terms her “lo-fi punk vernacular,” with layered elements (silkscreen, airbrush, acrylic, oil, stamped pigment) combining to create vibrantly intricate vignettes. Certain paintings consist of several canvases and appear as oddly shaped conglomerates; others are done on Baltic plywood panels with holes and gaps excised into them. The works are loaded with cultural touchstones, from graffiti that Schiele has spotted in Bushwick to the first, John Cassavetes-directed season of “Colombo” and a favorite German graphic novel whose title roughly translates as “Chicken, Porno, & Fisticuffs.” (Schiele describes the resulting, collage-style aesthetic as a type of “quilt.”) Many of the paintings have an embedded reference to the act of drawing or painting itself, as in “Doodle Chalet,” in which Schiele’s daughter sketches a view of a mountain. Motherhood has clearly invigorated the young artist. “I’m so happy right now,” she effused. “Everything’s about making stuff.” Her optimism is refreshing. If this is what the future looks like — shot through with a nervous, neon energy; alive with kinetic patterns — I’ll take it. Rebecca Warren at Matthew Marks Gallery, through October 25 (523 West 24th Street) These painted-bronze sculptures elicit a strange mix of emotions, their phallic, distended Giacometti forms plumped with unexpected breasts and ornamented with pompoms. They’re both silly and noble, as are the hulking bronze rocks — lumpy and pattern-adorned — sitting on wheeled dollies. Warren mixes things up with a few more Minimalist pieces, like “You Are Quiet, I Will Be Too,” a steel, paper, and pompom wall sculpture that’s like an indecipherable sentence spelled out as a shelf. Jason Rhoades at Zwirner Gallery, through October 18 (537 West 20th Street) It seems like just yesterday that the Zwirner mini-empire invited a certain 20-something market darling to build a factory in one of their galleries, cranking out sugary candies along with a pervasive bad attitude. (But hey, who’s bitter?) The late Rhoades’s “PeaRoeFoam” is another factory of sorts, albeit a gonzo one. Thus speaketh the press release: “PeaRoeFoam was Rhoades’s self-made recipe for a ‘brand new product and revolutionary new material’ created from whole green peas, fish-bait style salmon eggs, and white virgin-beaded foam. When combined with non-toxic glue, they transform into a versatile, fast-drying, and ultimately hard material that Rhoades intended for both utilitarian as well as artistic use.” The re-booted installation, which was first seen in 2002, is bursting at the seams — with PeaRoeFoam pellets, blaring lights, found images, a tiny motorcycle, and a row of industrial shelves whose mellow orange hue make it look like a very disheveled Home Depot has been plopped down in the white cube. Forget a certain someone’s ill-fated candy factory — it’s Rhoades that hits the real sweet spot. Fred Wilson at Pace Gallery, through October 18 (534 West 25th Street) This array of conceptual work from 2004 through 2014 is punchy and pared-down, juggling a limited visual iconography (the design elements of African nations’ flags; bulbous blown-glass tear drops that appear to rain down the wall) and an almost entirely black-and-white tonal palette. “The Mete of the Muse,” 2006, pairs an “African” statue with a “European” one, mixing two very different visions of femininity, sexuality, and grace.  Philippe Weisbecker at Zieher Smith & Horton, through October 4 (516 West 20th Street) This show of intimate drawings, paintings, and sculptures at the newly rebranded gallery is full of tiny revelations. Scott Zieher, who met the French artist about a decade ago, describes Weisbecher’s complex appeal: He’s “deeply aware of Minimalism,” yet the work also has “the naivete of the opposite end of the emotional and conceptual spectrum in its vernacular, outsider feel.” The drawings — of buildings, or trucks, among other things — exhibit that paradoxical nature, delivered with a sort of mildly drunken, architectural imprecision. (I wouldn’t trust Weisbecher’s structures to stand up in the real world, but on paper, they're a delight.) “About a year and a half ago we visited Philippe’s Paris studio and realized we were prepared to mount the kind of show that could do justice to a survey of 15 years of his hard work,” Zieher explained. “He became like a beacon of purity — a perfect choice for the first show of our new collaborative endeavor.” ALSO WORTH SEEING: Allora & Calzadilla’s “Fault Lines” at Gladstone Gallery, through October 11, which features hourly performances from adolescent members of the American Boychoir School and Transfiguration Boychoir. They sing and recline on stone sculptures, operatically delivering lines like “You must be the reason for contraception.” (Fun fact: Over at Luhring Augustine’s Roger Hiorns show there’s also a performer who sits on a rock. But he’s naked, and of age. And he doesn’t sing.)  5 Must-See Gallery Shows: Kristen Schiele, Jason Rhoades, and MoreSelect Photo Gallery: Slideshow: 5 Must-See Gallery Shows: Kristen Schiele, Jason Rhoades, and MorePublished: September 18, 2014 Read full article here

American History Gets the Mike Kelley Treatment
17/09/2014
It begins with a somber-seeming wall text and ends with a countrified punk dissolving his grandmother in lye. If you’re looking for highbrow and refined, this is not it: Mike Kelley’s “Reconstructed History,” a 50-part series on view at Skarstedt in Chelsea through October 25, is as rude and ill-mannered as the explosive flatulence that is one of its many subjects. (Also popular: Bestiality; comically enormous penises; various configurations of oral sex involving comically enormous penises; Benjamin Franklin appearing to sign a treaty with his own comically enormous penis; etc.) The works are all small found images, most of them depicting key moments in American history, centered on sheets of graph paper, and defaced by Kelley with a pen. Those defacements tend toward the sort made by hormonal young men on bathroom walls or subway advertisements: Boobs, dicks, balls, all those basic anatomies sketched with puerile glee. Both the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building gain a pair of hairy testicles; a scene with Lewis and Clark degrades into the scatological. History’s players turn out to be little more than libidinal brutes, groping and poking and smoking weed. It is, of course, impossible to divorce this body of work from Kelley’s larger oeuvre, not to mention his untimely end. (What happened between these exuberant dick jokes and the artist’s suicide in 2012?) Kelley’s work was so often obsessed with the troubled terrain of childhood, and here he’s the bored high-school student mucking up his textbook in the back row. Somehow, it doesn’t come across as unpatriotic, even — just disdainful of the pomp and circumstance that attaches to the story we tell about ourselves and our investment in this granfalloon we call the United States. (Kudos to Skarstedt for having the guts to open the exhibition on September 11, even if it was an accident of scheduling. The gallery also has plans to republish the series in book form — the original artist’s book, published in 1990, can be purchased for $6,000 — which is good news. But maybe don’t buy it for your grandmother.)  Silly as “Reconstructed History” can seem, it’s strangely affecting, and not just because of the fate of its creator. Our forefathers barf on the Declaration of Independence, the American eagle barks “Bite It,” and the self-seriousness of both the nation and the art world is mercifully punctured, one cartoon phallus at a time.         American History Gets the Mike Kelley TreatmentSelect Photo Gallery: Slideshow: Mike Kelley's "Reconstructed History" at Skarstedt GalleryPublished: September 17, 2014 Read full article here
