Borderlands

BORDERLANDS: Georgia Elrod, Baris Gokturk, and Sarada Rauch

COOP Gallery, 75 Arcade Nashville, Tennessee

COOP Gallery is pleased to present Borderlands, an exhibition featuring the work of Brooklyn-based artists and Heliopolis Gallery curators Georgia Elrod, Baris Gokturk, and Sarada Rauch.
Elrod, Gokturk, and Rauch met as graduate students at Hunter College in New York City. They joined forces as a curatorial team at Heliopolis, an artist run-gallery and project space in Brooklyn. Together they have created a dynamic program that has in turn developed new sensibilities in their own work.

Borderlands is an artistic response to their last 3 years’ curatorial projects. The ideas for many of these shows have stemmed from the group’s ongoing discussions that have triggered an organic process of hashing out concepts and themes. Recurring themes that most centrally persist have been interiority, and the tension present in ideas of inside, outside, and areas in between; liminality, or periods of transition where objects exist in a threshold of ambiguity; and the reconsideration of visual and conceptual norms via humor and re-appropriation.

In their process, each artist as curator carries whatever is happening in their respective studios to a table conversation, which often turns into a three-person debate. In turn, each artist brings the resulting issues and ideas back into their studios, helping to transform and take their own work to new dimensions. Borderlands is a result of this dialogue, featuring artworks that reflect the formal and conceptual sensibilities that were developed in the curatorial process.

This exhibition is the first part of an exchange between COOP Gallery and Heliopolis Gallery. The second part will feature COOP artists showing at Heliopolis in Brooklyn.

You Don't Bring Me Flowers (+The Mistress Project)

You Don't Bring Me Flowers (+The Mistress Project)

68projects, Fasanenstraße 68, D-10719, Berlin, Germany

Much like still life paintings or individual portraits, flowers might appear too antique as a
possible subject for art, especially during a period when art is generated from any idea or the absence of an idea. More than 21 artists affirm all the possibilities of the flower and demonstrate how to make one of the most academic assignments interesting and still relevant. Through paintings of a lone stem, a mixed bouquet, arrangements destined for a special occasion, Exhibition 1 reminds us how much we love flowers (and flower paintings) for their energy, emotion, communication, memory and sensual awakening of our senses.

Participating Artists: Tom Anholt, Kevin Baker, Donald Baechler, Amy Bessone, Maya Bloch, Matt Bollinger, Ann Craven, Jared Deery, Laeh Glen, Baris Gokturk, MacGregor Harp, Vera Iliatova, Max Janson, Doron Langberg, Alissa McKendrick, Marton Nemes, Aliza Nisenbaum, Giacinto Occhionero, Nadia Haji Omar, Jennifer Packer, Jennifer Steinkamp and others.

Iceberg's Tongue

Iceberg's Tongue

  • National YoungArts Foundation Studio (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

National YoungArts Foundation Studio 2144 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, Florida, USA

ICEBERG'S TONGUE is a group exhibition hosted by James Weingrod, the current National YoungArts Foundation artist-in-residence in Visual Arts, at the YoungArts Foundation in Miami. The exhibition will run from 7 December through 21 December, with an opening reception on 6 December to coincide with Art Basel 2014. 

ICEBERG'S TONGUE gathers artists who, in their work and practice, speak to nomadic existence. The artists in the exhibition approach provisionality, impermanence and movement from different perspectives, ranging from astronomical constellations, to transcultural mythology, to big data. The works, in painting, video, sculpture, and mixed media, chart myriad instances of transient objects, artifacts, and gestures.

The aesthetic of passage and circulation is matched by the sprawling, circuitous architecture of the NE 2nd Avenue studio building, itself a temporary camp for nomadic artists who travel to participate in the YoungArts residency program. In Iceberg’s Tongue, transient objects converge, momentarily “popping up” in a transient space, only to disassemble and disperse in a few weeks’ time. 

Organized by James Weingrod and Baris Gokturk, the exhibition includes works by artists Emmy Catedral, Katherine Behar, Sarada Rauch, JD Fernandez, Claudia Pena Salinas, Caroline Burghardt, Baris Gokturk, and Becky Brown.

ICEBERG'S TONGUE is free and will be open to the public 7 – 21 December 2014, from 9 AM - 6 PM. The YoungArts Foundation Studio is located at 2144 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami.

ICEBERG'S TONGUE will appear concurrently in the space with a second exhibition, “Sunk”, organized by General Practice’s Carlos Rigau.

Person, Place, or Thing

68 projects, Fasanenstraße 68, D-10719 Berlin

For the second exhibition in its new artist space, 68projects presents an international, eclectic lineup of artists and a vibrant exhibition of works on paper.

A blank sheet of paper, four white walls, an empty black box theater, You can do anything you want...Nothingis more daunting for an artist than the simple act of sitting down to begin. Even getting ready to start can establish enduring, eccentric rituals.

When an artist finishes the windup, what awaits is not infinite, exhilarating possibilities but the low-grade anxiety that all that has been done is all that is needed. If seeing Velazques's Las Meninas has prompted painters to give up painting on the spot, then what motivates an artist today to attempt making a work considered worthy enough to sit alongside one of the greatest artworks of all time? The simple answer is trying counts. And, new ideas can come to matter. And so, you never know.

"Person, Place or Thing" is an exhibition of works on paper by emerging and established artists selected by Quang Bao, the new artistic director for 68projects in Berlin. Using paper as the basis for the group exhibition allows for a diverse range of artworks and participating artists, tightened by asking each artist to make a work that falls into one of the three categories in a common guessing-game prompt. Most of the artworks are presented as finished works on paper though a few illustrate the artistic practices of sculptors, film/video makers and performance artists.

“I have always loved the intimacy, evident handiwork and reinvention contained on a single sheet of paper,” Bao said. “I wanted to celebrate the generative power of human imagination.
