UPCOMING


Expanded Field

Curated by Jackie Im and Aaron Harbour

December 2, 2011 – January 8, 2012

Reception Friday, December 2nd, 7-10 pm

MacArthur B Arthur is pleased to announce Expanded Field, a group show featuring new work by Torreya Cummings, Amy M. Ho, Sarah Hotchkiss, Christine M. Peterson, and Emma Spertus. Curated by Jackie Im and Aaron Harbour.

Expanded Field is an exhibition that takes the gallery space of MacArthur B Arthur – the physical characteristics of the space and its location – as a jumping off point but not an end. In an attempt to move away from the autonomy of the art object and in reaction to their working conditions, artists created works that were specific to a site. Making reference to Rosalind Krauss’ seminal essay, Sculpture in the Expanded Field, the artists in this exhibition have been asked to expand the field of the gallery; to produce work that bears a physical relationship to the exhibition space, yet stretches beyond it creating a hybrid of autonomy and dependence. Through use of visual illusion, architectural reference, and narrative allusion, Expanded Field hopes to explore an artwork’s potential to disorient the viewer and to radically exceed its surroundings.

In the Common Corner of Four Rooms

Finally some pictures of my contribution to a great group show at Statler Waldorf Gallery in LA curated by Christina Linden. I was impressed by the work of my fellow artists in the show: Dana Hemenway, Cara Levine, Cybele Lyle, and Hillary Wiedemann.


Detail - STABILITY FACILITY

After contemplating the many possibilities of modular installation, I ended up with three pieces: NEW MANTEL, STABILITY FACILITY, and BIOGRAPHY AND SEX.

Box on a box (homage to Young Joon Kwak)

The last of the Oxbow pieces... I like this one a lot. I utilized a picture of fellow resident Young Joon Kwak's prop from a video as a covering for my platform. As usual, one picture doesn't seem to do the trick, so I have provided several.

Book show at ox-bow

Books and more books... Nick Johnston, my studiomate, and I decided to put together a little show in our studio. He made books he haven't finished and I made painting of potential book sculptures. His books are displayed directly above mine and are quiet nice.
