AMERICAN VANGUARDS:
GRAHAM, DAVIS, GORKY,
DE KOONING, AND THEIR CIRCLE,
1927–1942
 
 
JANUARY 29–APRIL 29, 2012
In the 1920s through 1940s, the enigmatic and charismatic John Graham (1886–1961) and his circle of New York artists, which included Stuart Davis, Arshile Gorky, and Willem de Kooning, helped redefine ideas of what painting and sculpture could be. They, along with others in Graham’s orbit, such as Jackson Pollock and David Smith, played a critical role in developing and defining American modernism.
 
American Vanguards showcases more than sixty works of art from this vital period that demonstrate the inter-connections, common sources, and shared stimuli among the members of Graham’s circle.
 
This exhibition, curated by notable scholars William C. Agee, Irving Sandler, and Karen Wilkin, will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue co-published by the Addison and Yale University Press. This critical reconsideration sheds new light on the New York School, Abstract Expressionism, and the vitality of American modernism between the two world wars.

Oil on canvas, 32 x 39 in. (81.3 x 99.1 cm)

AMERICAN VANGUARDS PANEL DISCUSSION
Sunday, March 4, 2 pm

William C. Agee, Irving Sandler, and Karen Wilkin, the three curators of American Vanguards: Graham, Davis, Gorky, de Kooning, and Their Circle, 1927-1942, discuss the exhibition; moderated by Tracy Fitzpatrick, Neuberger Museum of Art curator and Purchase College Associate Professor of Art History

get ready for the Whitney Biennal


Sculpture, painting, installations, and photography—as well as dance, theater, music, and film—will fill the galleries of the Whitney Museum of American Art in the latest edition of the Whitney Biennial. With a roster of artists at all points in their careers the Biennial provides a look at the current state of contemporary art in America. This is the seventy-sixth in the ongoing series of Biennials and Annuals presented by the Whitney since 1932, two years after the Museum was founded.
The 2012 Biennial takes over most of the Whitney from March 1 through May 27, with portions of the exhibition and some programs continuing through June 10. The participating artists were selected by Elisabeth Sussman, Curator/Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography at the Whitney, and Jay Sanders, a freelance curator and writer who has spent the past ten years working both in the gallery world and on independent curatorial projects. Sussman and Sanders co-curated the Biennial’s film program with Thomas Beard and Ed Halter, the co-founders of Light Industry, a venue for film and electronic art in Brooklyn

In Celebration of
Women's History Month
March 22,  6:30 -8 pm
Gail Levin
Noted author and Distinguished Professor of Art History, Gail Levin will conduct a discussion about her new biography of Lee Krasner and the issues relating to the documentation of women artists in history.


LEE KRASNER
A BIOGRAPHY
 
Copies of the book are available for short-term loan from the gallery.

   
Gail Levin's biography of Lee Krasner beautifully evokes a period in American art that laid the groundwork for the women artists of today. Lee, who was my mother's close friend in art school (the National Academy of Design), not only contributed wonderful work but also encouraged a whole new generation of artists. She grew into true generativity. Bless her and her biographer! Erica Jong

At a time when images barrage us everywhere from our televisions to our mobile phones, the latest reinstallation of the Whitney’s permanent collection galleries invites visitors to slow down and experience art in a dramatic new way. Singular Visions presents twelve highlights from the museum’s holdings, each in its own space, in order to create intimate and compelling encounters with a single work of art. Each piece was chosen to convey a distinct impression and a specific sense of its maker’s vision, whether somber or celebratory, figurative or abstract, quiet or bold. Some of the works on view require their own spaces because they are large or comprise many parts, while others explore difficult topics or emotions that one might wish to consider in relative isolation. Through their variety of mediums, sizes, styles, and subjects, the works in Singular Visions encourage a range of powerful experiences and reveal how artists have stretched the very boundaries of what an artwork can be.
The following artists are currently included in Singular Visions: Jonathan Borofsky, Alexander Calder, Eva Hesse, Matthew Day Jackson, Jasper Johns, Lee Krasner, Len Lye, Agnes Martin, Josephine Meckseper, and Fred Wilson. The following artists were previously included inSingular Visions but have been rotated out and are no longer on view: Eleanor Antin, AA Bronson, Paul Chan, Sarah Charlesworth, Anne Collier, Leon Golub, Robert Grosvenor, Willem de Kooning, Edward Kienholz, Aleksandra Mir, Robert Morris, Ree Morton, Georgia O’Keeffe, James Rosenquist, George Segal, Gary Simmons, and Tom Wesselmann.
Singular Visions is organized by Dana Miller, curator, permanent collection and curator Scott Rothkopf.

about Hong Kong....Para/Site Art Space


Para/Site Art Space, Hong Kong’s leading independent, non-profit arts organization, has been awarded a Springboard Grant by the Advisory Committee on Arts Development(ACAD) in Hong Kong. It is the only visual arts organization to receive the grant, which is part of a new support scheme announced by ACAD in June last year.
The new grant scheme is part of the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme, a program built around the development and promotion of "local artists and arts groups."
The Springboard Grant is a matching grant that requires the recipient to provide equal funding, with a minimum one quarter to come from non-government funding.
When announcing the establishment of the grant program Chairman of ACAD, Mr Chung Shui-ming, said, "The Funding Scheme seeks to fund applications that contribute to the objectives of program/contents development, audience building, arts education and capacity development.  It aims to supplement existing funding schemes for the arts and, in particular, to provide new funding opportunities to enhance capacity development for promising arts groups and practitioners, and activities/projects of a large scale and/or of a long time frame."
Since its founding in 1996, Para/Site has established itself as a leading voice for alternative cultural development in the region, representing Hong Kong in the 50th (2003) and 53rd (2009) Venice Biennale as well as the 4th Gwangju Biennale (2002.)  The institution is responsible for bringing influential artists to Hong Kong such as Ai WeiweiDennis OppenheimFranz AckermannTsang Kin-wah and Vito Acconci.
Speaking to BLOUIN ARTINFO Hong Kong Para/Site executive director/curator Cosmin Costinas said “the Springboard Grant allows us at Para/Site to continue to remain faithful to our promise to the Hong Kong public to be one of the leading independent art institutions in Asia.”
The ACAD has awarded HK$2.8 million to Para/Site which Costinas says will go into “the development of the structural integrity of the institution, funding the development of all the components that are not exhibition based such as conferences, books and research projects.”
Para/Site will be eligible to apply for the grant again this year with a possible HK$4.5 million available in funding. There is a maximun funding period of three years with a HK$7.5 million cap.
Although clearly pleased with the support Costinas did sound a note of caution: "the Hong Kong Government needs to be clear that matching funds are great but they cannot provide this high level of funding and then just pull out completely. There must be an understanding on both sides about sustainability."

other sculptures by Jiang Shuo




Linda Gallery in Singapore




Jiang Shuo was born in 1958, Beijing. She studied sculpture at the Central Academy of Arts and Design, which is now under Tsinghua University. Jiang, as the first female sculptor in China, completed her master degree in 1985 and started her career in teaching sculpture at the Central Academy until 1989. Jiang, with her husband Wu Shao Xiang, emigrated to Austria and worked at their joint studio there. Jiang's works have been widely exhibited around the world, especially in Europe. 

The sculpture that you are interested is titled Great Jump, it is one of her Red Guards Series. The Red Guards work follows in her folk art style but with the injection of a political theme to grab people's attention. The almost faceless guards with their wide-open mouths recall the period of turmoil in China when the spouting of slogans and mindless indoctrination was the path to survival. The sarcasm continues for the materialization that these red guard criticized during the Revolution, have now become their goals, to be pursued today. 

As one of the contemporary artists, she uses the accent lost-wax casting technique which was widespread in Europe until 19th Century. Great Jump is sized: 170 x 110 x110 cm, was done in the year of 2008, edition of 8 pieces. The bronze sculpture is great for outdoor display and it comes with an original certificate directly from the artist. (please see the picture as attached ) The gallery price for this piece is SGD 162,500.

back in New York City..

New York City.- The Bertrand Delacroix Gallery is pleased to present “Toro Bravo”, an exhibition of recent works by Joseph Adolphe, on view at the gallery from February 9th through March 9th. Echoing the anxiety of an age marked by austerity and personal uncertainty, Adolphe’s subjects vary between the beaten down fighter, the agile and stoic beast, the exposed human and the vulnerable child – each of them leaving their life force in the ring. Strength and individuality are measured by their ability to endure the respective hardships of their personal confrontations with the world. They are brave despite facing a constant barrage of disappointments, setbacks and unfulfilled dreams. Any remaining optimism seems to slip into darkness. While the trajectory of Adolphe’s paintings follows this same course there is nevertheless an illogical optimism reflected in the confident and powerful force of his marks and colors, as if to say that, ‘in spite of the downfall of the proud, we still stand, bloody and marked, broken, but beautiful’
