Near & Dear, an Exhibition Curated by Carrie Moyer

EFA Project Space

September 15–October 28, 2017

Near & Dear is an intergenerational exhibition that explores amorous connections artists make with signifying materials and objects. This group of eight artists use objects to deliver embodied meaning, from the haptic to the optical to cerebral. All have an investment in a specific material culture and the product of their research takes the form of discrete artifacts.

Kentucky Renaissance: The Lexington Camera Club and Its Community, 1954–1974

October 8, 2016 - January 1, 2017

Cincinnati Art Museum presents the first major museum survey of the Lexington Camera Club's artistic achievements in the new exhibition Kentucky Renaissance: The Lexington Camera Club and Its Community, 1954-1974. More than 150 photographs, books, prints and other objects made in and around Lexington, Kentucky will be on view from October 8, 2016 - January 1, 2017.

Ralph Eugene Meatyard is the most esteemed artist affiliated with this group. This exhibition sets his art with an unprecedented examination of his mentors, peers and friends in the Lexington Camera Club during the third quarter of the 20th century. In doing so, the exhibition notes the influence this club had not only on Meatyard, but on developing a modernist sensibility blended with Southern culture.

Carrie Moyer in "The Humanism of Abstraction"

Carrie Moyer in "The Humanism of Abstraction"

The Gallery at Industry City, Dedalus Foundation

October 20 - November 17, 2016

The three artists in this exhibition–Carrie Moyer, David Reed, and John Zinsser–are prominent abstract painters who in very different but vital ways continue the tradition of abstract painting. In addition to their common concerns with color, shape, and surface texture, each creates abstract imagery that powerfully evokes a world of human feeling–and a kind of radiant humanism. They were invited to show in this exhibition because of the quality of their work and the continuity that they represent between Abstract Expressionism and contemporary abstraction. All three artists were also participants in a symposium about the legacy of Robert Motherwell at the Archives of American Art in Washington, D.C., in December 2015.

Whitfield Lovell: The Kin Series and Related Works

Whitfield Lovell: The Kin Series and Related Works

The Phillips Collection, Washington, DC

October 8, 2016 - January 8, 2017

The work of internationally recognized American artist Whitfield Lovell (b. 1959, Bronx, New York) powerfully examines “the markings that the past has made—and continues to make—on who we are.” In his exquisitely crafted Kin series and related tableaux, Lovell combines freely drawn Conté crayon figures of anonymous African Americans with time worn objects from everyday life, such as a brooch, clock, or flag. Lovell’s poetic combinations “transgress cultural or racial boundaries” in their exploration of identity, heritage, memory, and our collective American past. This exhibition of 40 works features selections from the Kin series in dialogue with some of his finest related works.

Barbara Takenaga: Waiting in the Sky II

Barbara Takenaga: Waiting in the Sky II

Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo, MI

June 18 - September 18, 2016

An abstract painter working in acrylics, Barbara Takenaga is known for her swirling, dot-based paintings of saturated color and undulating patterns. Her simple forms, arranged into dense and detailed composition, radiate and recede in what seems to be infinite space.

Takenaga has been the Mary A. and William Wirt Warren Professor of Art at Williams College since 1985. Her first major exhibition was at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, in 1987, and her work has since has been exhibited at institutions including the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; and the National Academy Museum, New York.

"I still love the idea of the Big Bang," Takenaga has said of her work. "I feel like I am on this really giant ocean liner and I've got this little tiny steering wheel, and I'm turning and turning and turning it, and I'm trying to make a different course for the ship, turning and turning the wheel, and nothing happens. Finally, the thing--me, my attitude, the history of the work, the paintings themselves--because its mass is so big, it starts moving, ever so slowly shifting."

Eric Aho: An Unfinished Point in a Vast Surrounding

The New Britain Museum of Art, New Britain, CT

April 22 – August 14, 2016

For nearly 25 years, Eric Aho has depicted the landscape as a means to investigate and expand the boundaries of painting and personal inquiry. Since his earliest projects, Aho has brought historical research, personal relationships, and a close reading of the landscape together to reinvigorate traditional portraiture and challenge what it means to paint the landscape today, in works that are both representational and dynamically abstract.

Magic Hour Podcast, Episode 1: Duane Michals

Recorded in New York City             
Episode Length: 42:00
Air Date: June 15, 2016  

Produced by: Jordan Weitzman & Michelle Macklem, Edited by: Cristal Duhaime

In this episode, photographer Duane Michals talks to Jordan Weitzman about his early days in photography to the work he is doing today. Michals is best known for his Sequences, which he first started to develop in the mid sixties. He has had an eclectic career, from that early work being exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York to doing commercial work for Vogue and Esquire. He is a self-taught photographer and his work broke away from the established styles of the sixties, from his portraits to his iconoclastic combinations of image and text to his very personal approach to bookmaking. Duane has been with his partner Fred Gorey for over 55 years and they live together in New York City. He is 84 and still working, still feeling inspired, still playful in his philosophical and thoughtful approaches to photography.

Barbara Takenaga has created a new work of an unprecedented scale for a 100 foot wall in the Hunter Center lobby at MASS MoCA.The mural features a new image from her series, Nebraska Paintings, a body of work that moves closer to the representational imagery only implied in earlier pieces, but which captures the wide open spaces and big sky of the artist’s native state. The work will be on view at MASS MoCA beginning July 12, 2015.

Freer & Sackler Galleries, Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC

May 16, 2015 - January 2, 2017

First exhibited at MASS MoCA in 2013, in the installation Filthy Lucre, Darren Waterston reimagines James McNeill Whistler’s famed Peacock Room—an icon of American art—as a decadent ruin collapsing under the weight of its own creative excess. Forging a link between inventive and destructive forces, Filthy Lucre forms the centerpiece of an unprecedented exhibition that highlights the complicated tensions between art and money, ego and patronage, and acts of creative expression in the nineteenth century and today.

MoMA PS1

October 11, 2015–March 7, 2016

MoMA PS1 presents the fourth iteration of its landmark exhibition series, begun as a collaboration with The Museum of Modern Art in 2000. Recurring every five years, the exhibition has traditionally showcased the work of emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area. Greater New York arrives in a city and art community that has changed significantly since the first version of the survey. With the rise of a robust commercial art market and the proliferation of art fairs, opportunities for younger artists in the city have grown alongside a burgeoning interest in artists who may have been overlooked in the art histories of their time. Concurrently, the city itself is being reshaped by a voracious real estate market that poses particular challenges to local artists. The speed of this change in recent years has stoked a nostalgia for earlier periods in New York—notably the 1970s and 1980s, and the experimental practices and attitudes that flourished in the city during those decades. Against this backdrop, Greater New York departs from the show’s traditional focus on youth, instead examining points of connection and tension between our desire for the new and nostalgia for that which it displaces.

Bringing together emerging and more established artists, the exhibition occupies MoMA PS1’s entire building with over 400 works by 157 artists, including programs of film and performance. Greater New York is co-organized by a team led by Peter Eleey, Curator and Associate Director of Exhibitions and Programs, MoMA PS1; and including art historian Douglas Crimp, University of Rochester; Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, MoMA; and Mia Locks, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1.

Considering the “greater” aspect of its title in terms of both geography and time, Greater New York begins roughly with the moment when MoMA PS1 was founded in 1976 as an alternative venue that took advantage of disused real estate, reaching back to artists who engaged the margins of the city. Together, the works in the exhibition employ a heterogeneous range of aesthetic strategies, often emphatically representing the city’s inhabitants through forms of bold figuration, and foregrounding New York itself as a location of conflict and possibility.

The Three Graces were known in ancient mythology as enchanting goddesses who personified the primary attributes of creativity: Beauty, Wonder and Joy. In a recasting of this mythical triumvirate, the Everson introduces three contemporary artists from New York – Polly Apfelbaum, Tony Feher and Carrie Moyer – whose spectacular abstract works embody these qualities.
Mystic North at the Burchfield Penney Art Center

Mystic North at the Burchfield Penney Art Center

Eric Aho & Charles Burchfield in Mystic North: Burchfield, Sibelius, & Nature
Buffalo, NY
September 11, 2015 - January 31, 2016

Mystic North includes artworks by Charles Burchfield that illustrate his evolving concept of winter’s power and beauty, an idealized northland, as well as audio-cryptograms—the motifs he devised to make sound visible. Because the concept of “North” as a mystical, metaphorical, and inspirational place has intrigued artists for centuries, the exhibition includes works by two other artists for comparison. They are Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865-1931), who was Sibelius’ friend, painted his portrait, and is considered by many to be Finland’s most famous artist; and Eric Aho (born 1966), an American of Finnish descent and Burchfield admirer who traveled to his ancestral country to paint expressive landscapes.

Robert Kushner will be included in the fourth iteration of the series, "Greater New York." Begun in 2000 as a collaboration between MoMA PS1 (then P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center) and The Museum of Modern Art, the show showcases emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area. "Greater New York 2015" will depart from the show’s primary focus on youth, instead examining key points of connection and intersection between emerging and more established artists across New York, while also exploring aspects of earlier histories of the city itself, and its changing political, social, and architectural fabric.

Claire Sherman: Funeral Mountain
Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago, IL
June 6 - August 1, 2015

A new series of paintings by Claire Sherman are on view at Kavi Gupta Gallery.

Gestural and heroic, Claire Sherman’s canvases investigate the confusion of scale and space. Purposefully composed in a single day, each composition originates from a specific place and is executed in a limited period of time. Sherman intentionally retains all of the stumbles, victories, and awkward brushstrokes that lay tangled on the surfaces of each heavily worked canvas.

Duane Michals: Collector
November 1, 2014 - March 2, 2015
The Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA

Michals was a pioneer in the 1960s when he broke away from established traditions of documentary and fine art photography. Rather than respecting the primacy of the photographic print, Michals added handwritten messages and poems to the paper surface. Instead of accepting the widely recognized dominance of a powerful single image, so respected by masters like Ansel Adams or Henri Cartier-Bresson, Michals created sequences of multiple images to convey visual stories. He has always considered himself to be a storyteller.

Jacob Lawrence: The Toussaint L'Ouverture Series
Cleveland Museum of Art
October 11, 2014 - January 4, 2015

Influenced by the Harlem Renaissance, Jacob Lawrence (1912–2000) believed that art should be a quest for both personal and communal identity, a philosophy he advocated throughout his long and distinguished career. On several occasions, he developed multi-paneled series of works exploring heroic stories and themes. His first of these monumental efforts, The Life of Toussaint L’Ouverture, created in 1936–38, is showcased in this exhibition. Consisting of 41 images—for which Lawrence also composed captions—the series brings to life L’Ouverture’s feats in emancipating Haiti from European rule, thereby establishing the first black republic in the Western Hemisphere.

This is the first scholarly survey of the peacock in art. Strutting in its sapphire-blue and emerald-green feathers, the peacock symbolizes all things vain and beautiful in centuries of painting, sculpture, in books and myth, and on clothes that swirl and shine like the iridescent bird itself. Intrigued by the exotic art of Asia that prized and portrayed the peacock, Western artists and craftsmen chose the peacock as a multi-faceted motif for designs on canvas and for objets d’art in the home.

Over the course of her career, Frank has worked in sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking and recently encaustic and photography, suggesting that her primary loyalty is not to a particular way of working or to any medium, but rather to the power of direct expression and to the act of creation itself. All of this work evinces an eagerness to use the intuitions and improvisations that arise naturally during the creative process.

Roger Brown: Virtual Still Life
Russell Bowman Art Advisory
September 5 - November 1, 2014

Two years before his death in 1997, Roger Brown completed a series of twenty-seven paintings with attached ceramics called Virtual Still Life. Although earlier in his career Brown had created paintings on found objects or with found objects attached, this was his largest and most coherent series of object/paintings. Based on the kinds of common ceramics he was collecting and displaying at his home in California, the paintings employ his typical stylized landscape motifs in response to the colors and shapes of the ceramics attached to shelves at their base. Roger Brown: Virtual Still Life presents the last eleven examples from this series outside museum and private collections.

Painter Darren Waterston’s installation Filthy Lucre -- the centerpiece of Uncertain Beauty -- is a contemporary re-imagining of James McNeill Whistler’s 1896 decorative masterpiece Harmony in Blue and Gold: The Peacock Room. At MASS MoCA Waterston will reconstruct the historical room as a sumptuous ruin. Darren Waterston: Uncertain Beauty also features a selection of Waterston’s works on wood panel and canvas. These luminous paintings, which seem to glow from within, transport viewers to other-worldly spaces, somewhat familiar but unhinged from a particular time or place. Like Filthy Lucre, they express both the grotesque and the beautiful, hinting at utopian fantasies and Arcadian dreams, as well as apocalyptic nightmares.

Museum of Modern Art
August 17, 2013 – January 26, 2014

Drawn from MoMA’s collection, American Modern takes a fresh look at the Museum’s holdings of American art made between 1915 and 1950, and considers the cultural preoccupations of a rapidly changing American society in the first half of the 20th century. Artists represented include George Bellows, Charles Burchfield, Stuart Davis, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, Charles Sheeler, Alfred Stieglitz, and Andrew Wyeth, among many others. Far from an encyclopedic view of American art of the period, the exhibition is a focused look at the strengths and surprises of MoMA’s collection in an area that has played a major role in the institution’s history.

This exhibition features 23 original drawings that Lawrence created for the 1970 Simon and Schuster publication of Aesop's Fables, a collection of morality tales of the late 7th and early 6th century BCE ascribed to the Greek storyteller Aesop.

Each drawing is accompanied by the fable and the moral lesson that the story illustrates.

Eric Aho: In the Landscape
An exhibition at the Federal Reserve Board from May 20 to November 15, 2013

This exhibition features fourteen works of art by Eric Aho, a painter with a great passion for the outdoors. Aho’s paintings depict his emotional response to the landscape without referencing the specific details of the actual space. The artist’s works start with a memory of an event or a place. Then, he paints his feelings, creating dramatic compositions that evoke the spirit of the setting, rather than an exact representation.

David Driskell: In Search of the Creative Truth

David Driskell: In Search of the Creative Truth is a story about one of today’s most important artists and leading authorities on African American art. This film captures Driskell making collages inspired by mentor Romare Bearden, documents him with National Gallery consulting curator Ruth Fine, and painting at his Falmouth, Maine studio. The film also explores the give and take of his creative relationship with master printmaker, Curlee Holton. It all results in powerful works that pull from abstract expressionism, African masks, Coptic art, modernism, cubism, and the history of art.

This exhibition showcases the portfolio A Swarm, A Flock, A Host: A Compendium of Creatures, 12 color aquatints by noted artist Darren Waterston and text plates featuring a poem by award-winning writer Mark Doty. The portfolio, a contemporary version of a medieval bestiary, was commissioned by the Achenbach Graphic Arts Council (AGAC), in support of the art acquisitions program of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s prints and drawings department.

In this modern bestiary Waterston depicts silhouetted animal and plant forms in emotionally charged configurations meant to be as menacing as they are playful. “As Mark’s extraordinary poetry took form,” Waterston has said, “I painted in response, inspired by his words though not directly illustrating them.”

Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art

February 13 | May 19, 2013

Drawn entirely from the deep holdings of the Whitney’s collection, Real/Surreal: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art focuses on the tension and overlap between two strong currents in 20th-century art: realism and Surrealism. Real/Surreal features paintings, drawings, photographs, and prints that elucidate how artists—depending on intention and influence—developed degrees of reality in which imagination held more or less sway. Among the notable artists included in the exhibition are Charles Burchfield, Paul Cadmus, Joseph Cornell, Jared French, Philip Guston, Edward Hopper, Man Ray, Ben Shahn, Charles Sheeler, Yves Tanguy, George Tooker, and Andrew Wyeth.

Romare Bearden Black Odyssey App

Romare Bearden Black Odyssey App

Romare Bearden Black Odyssey Remixes App for iPhone and iPad
By Smithsonian Institution


Create your own collage art based on the incredible works of American artist Romare Bearden (1911-1988).

In 1977, Romare Bearden created a series of collages inspired by the ancient poet Homer and his epic story "The Odyssey." Bearden believed that “all of us from the time we begin to think are on an odyssey.” The Romare Bearden collage app, developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in conjunction with the national traveling exhibition "Romare Bearden: A Black Odyssey," was created with Bearden's quote in mind.

With this lively, colorful, and highly engaging app, you can remix works from Bearden's original series to create your own unique works of art, and express your personal journey. Choose from a variety of Bearden’s backdrops and layer in shapes and forms from other collages. Or cut your own shapes, add personal photos, change the colors of various elements and resize them. You can also add your words and your descriptions.

Playwright August Wilson praised Romare Bearden for his celebration of “black life presented on its own terms, on a grand and epic scale, with all its richness and fullness, in a language that was vibrant and which, made attendant to everyday life, ennobled it, affirmed its value, and exalted its presence.” In the last year, Bearden’s centenary was marked nationwide with a host of exhibitions and events befitting the legacy of a great American artist. Now the Poetry Center invites creative writers to speak about what his life and art has meant to them. Thanks to Russell Goings, Bearden’s devoted friend, our tribute will also feature a special showing of Bearden’s artwork in 92Y’s Weill Art Gallery.

Kushner opening postponed due to hurricane

Kushner opening postponed due to hurricane

Dear Friends,

As you surely know, Hurricane Sandy's high waters and strong winds inflicted severe damage on a great majority of the galleries in Chelsea. We are grateful our gallery sustained no damage in the storm; however, power is not yet restored to our building and so we must regrettably postpone the opening of Robert Kushner's exhibition scheduled for tomorrow night, Thursday, November 8, as well as our project room exhibition of works on paper by Arpita Singh.

Kushner’s exhibition New Paintings / New Collages and Arpita Singh will instead open next Thursday, November 15th at 535 West 22nd Street from 6 to 8 pm. We anticipate no other interruptions to our 2012/2013 exhibition schedule. We hope you will join us in celebrating Robert Kushner's new work and the revitalization of our vital downtown community.

Later this month, on Thursday, November 29 beginning at 6:30, we will host Robert Kushner in conversation with Irving Sandler and Robert Berlind.

Our thoughts are with all the victims of Hurricane Sandy and our hearts go out to our colleagues and friends who have suffered major losses. Please join us in supporting the city’s and our Chelsea neighborhood’s efforts to rebuild. We encourage you to consider making a contribution to one of our local non-profits, The Kitchen, Primary Information, or Printed Matter, who lost so much.

As our telephone lines are still being repaired, we encourage you to contact us via email at info@dcmooregallery.com.

Watercolors: A Musical Tribute to Charles Burchfield by Nell Shaw Cohen
Saturday · November 10, 2012
12:30 & 2:30PM
Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, NY
Free admission

Composed for wind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon) by Nell Shaw Cohen in 2011, Watercolors is inspired by the watercolor paintings of Charles Ephraim Burchfield (1893-1967), a visionary American artist who, through his work, dwelled on nature, spirituality, and synesthesia. The four movements of Watercolors correspond to four paintings created between 1916 and 1950: An April Mood, Autumnal Fantasy, Sun and Rocks, and Glory of Spring (Radiant Spring), the latter of which is in the Parrish’s permanent collection. Images of the paintings will be projected during the performance, drawing listeners into the world of the artworks through both sight and sound.

Burchfield Penney Summer Exhibition

CHARLES E. BURCHFIELD: FROM NATURE
Friday, July 13–Sunday, October 28, 2012

Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo, NY

The exhibition From Nature focuses on Burchfield’s nature studies and paintings in which certain flowers and trees are central. His naturalist temperament resulted in beautiful studies that concentrate on landscape details. Some of his depictions of wildflowers rival illustrations made by John James Audubon, the Prestele family, James Vick and others who documented plants, birds and insects from both scientific and artistic perspectives. Burchfield, however, usually transposed his botanical studies into more interpretive paintings that expressed his profound appreciation of nature. The exhibition includes watercolors from the Burchfield Penney’s collection, as well as drawings and wallpaper studies from the Charles E. Burchfield Archives that have never been shown before. In addition, several private collectors are lending works for a rare public appearance.

Joyce Kozloff's "Jeez" at the Armory Show Modern

Joyce Kozloff's "Jeez" at the Armory Show Modern

DC Moore Gallery is pleased to present Joyce Kozloff’s JEEZ for the first time at the main entrance to The Armory Show Modern at Pier 92. JEEZ is a twelve by twelve-foot painting in thirty-six panels based on the Ebstorf map, a 13th-century mappa mundi of the same size painted on thirty sewn goatskins. One of the most famous medieval world maps, destroyed during WWII bombing, the Ebstorf map combined geopolitics, science and theology. It depicted Biblical stories alongside pagan myths within a vision of the world as it was then known. Christ’s body served as both a symbolic and literal frame for the circular map, with his head at the top, his hands at the left and right sides, and his feet at the bottom.

Forest Eater: Works by Darren Waterston

Forest Eater: Works by Darren Waterston

May 27 - September 11, 2011
The Contemporary Museum & Honolulu Academy of Arts, Honolulu, HI

Over the course of the past year, as part of The Contemporary Museum’s artist-in-residence program, New York-based artist Darren Waterston made several trips to Hawai‘i, where he hiked on lava flows at Volcanoes National Park and researched past artists’ depictions of and writings on Pele and volcanoes. The result is Forest Eater, his response to the landscape of Hawai‘i and his interest in Pele, Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning and volcanoes. The two-part exhibition is staged at The Contemporary Museum, Makiki Heights, and at the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
