Natural Wonders: Sublime Artifice in Contemporary Art

 

The Brandywine River Museum of Art 

June 23 - October 23, 2018

 

Natural Wonders showcases the work of thirteen American artists who engage nature in all its fierce magnificence.  Beyond just highlighting nature’s beauty, the featured artists—Suzanne Anker, Lauren Fensterstock, Patrick Jacobs, Maya Lin, Roxy Paine, Miljohn Ruperto & Ulrik Heltoft, Diana Thater, Jennifer Trask, Mark Tribe, Kathleen Vance, T.J. Wilcox, and Dustin Yellin—also hint at the more disquieting aspects of the natural world. As such, the works in this exhibition can be viewed as a type of neo-sublime, mixing the beautiful and terrifying to produce awe in the beholder in accord with tenets of eighteenth-century philosopher Edmund Burke.  And not unlike nineteenth-century sublime landscapes of the Hudson River School or the Romantic era, these recent works conjure the raw power and unruliness of nature along with its harmonious effects—a state at once captivating and unsettling.  Indeed, a menace can be found lurking within most of the work in Natural Wonders, and this danger often stems from human intervention.

You had to be there

 

swissnex San Franciso
February 8 - April 20, 2018

 

You had to be there is a group exhibition at the swissnex Gallery that playfully examines what remains beyond the completion of a public artwork or an action, and imagines various modes for experiencing projects in their aftermath. Through close collaboration with the artists and groups involved, the exhibition hopes to tell a story that diverges from the official lines read and promoted through art history. Through unconventional displays of firsthand accounts, reenactments and ephemera, You had to be there aims to tell a story that is not necessarily the story.You had to be there also questions the role of care and myth-making in the preservation of public works by exploring the legacy of such practices in San Francisco and Sierre, Switzerland. It will present educational initiatives; site-based projects, such as the Center for Land Use Interpretation; and Furk’Art, a little-known artist residency program that has been operating in relative isolation in the Swiss Alps since 1983. You had to be there is the first time archival documents, videos, and images from Furk’Art have been exhibited outside of Europe.

 


Stream Capture

 

MCAD Main Gallery
Minneapolis College of Art and Design

January  16 - March 4, 2018

 

Through the use and lens of digital tools and technology, "Stream Capture" asks how we might engage with a reimagining of the natural environment if we cannot physically enter it. The work in the exhibition explores human perception, simulation, mapping, time and scale shifts, and historical study and preservation. The exhibition offers a sense of the future and the possibility of movement from place to place (here to there) and from time to time (present to future).
