  • Between the Covers: Altered Books in Contemporary Art
    Maslow Galleries
    Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science & Art
    February 5 - June 6, 2016

    Scranton, PA

    For the twentyfour artists in Between the Covers: Altered Books in Contemporary Art, found and mass-produced books are their expressive medium of choice. Viewing themselves as collaborators with their source material, they transform them into sculptures and installations of all sizes and shapes. Beyond exploiting physical and sensorial properties, the artists improvise with content, both text and image. In answer to the looming demise of the printed publication, the exhibition argues that in giving books new life as unique works of art, the artists are opening up fresh possibilities of meaning and relevance. Between the Covers is exclusive to the Everhart Museum and is guest curated by Sarah Tanguy, who has selected a grouping from Kunstadt's Sacred Poem Series. http://everhart-museum.org/exhibitions/current-exhibitions/

  • WORD 2016
    Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art
    February 27 - July 31, 2016
    Opening Reception February 27, 5 - 7 pm
    1701 Main Street
    Peekskill, NY

    HVCCA has a history of exhibitions that feature artists from the international community, some with established careers and stellar reputations as well as those just emerging onto the art stage.  ‘WORD’ is HVCCA’s first open call juried exhibition purposed to highlight talented regional artists who prominently feature ‘a word’ or ‘words’ in their artistic productions.  Some 140 artists applied and 64 artists were selected.  These newer and lesser known works will sit side by side with works of artists such as Beatrice Coron, Dylan Graham (Netherlands), Ann Hamilton (US 1999 Venice Biennale artist), John Mellencamp, Jeffrey Gibson, Job Koelewijn (Netherlands), Laura Kimpton (SLS Miami, Burning Man, California) and Robert Indiana.

    Words have appeared historically as artistic forms in illuminated manuscripts, in Arabic text on the walls of mosques and in its mosaic murals, on Chinese calligraphic scrolls.  ‘Word’ as contemporary art form has been popularized by contemporary artists Ruche, Wiener, Kruger and Holzer, Anastasi and others.  Words have the power to hurt and to heal, to be offered as prayer or diatribe. Some of these ‘word’ facets will be explored in the works presented at the HVCCA.  Education programs, word performances and readings by renowned poets Gerald Stern and Cindy Beer Fouhy, will enhance the visual exhibition at the HVCCA.

    Cincinnati, OH

    Regional Showcases are intended to complement the ordinarily very wide geographical makeup of most Manifest exhibits with a closer look at what's being done in particular places. For our third set of exhibits showcasing works from other regions we have decided to look at the states which anchor either side of the United States. NEW YORK and CALIFORNIA offer the compelling east/west polar relationship which provides at the very least a starting point for conversation about the resulting simultaneous exhibitions. Eleven works by 9 artists from New York were selected for exhibition and will also be featured in the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication (MEA) at the close of the season. Sacred Poem LXVII has been selected for this exhibition showcasing work from NEW YORK. www.manifestgallery.org

  • Nina Katchadourian: New Sortings
    Kleinert/James Center for the Arts
    Woodstock Brydcliffe Guild
    June 13 - July 19, 2015
    Woodstock, NY

    Internationally acclaimed artist Nina Katchadourian often works with a confined, pre-existing set of criteria or visual material, motivated by what she calls “curiosity about the productive tension between freedom and constraint.” Nina Katchadourian: New Sortings will consist of three series from Katchadourian’s ongoing Sorted Books project including a series on-site  using the library of Alf Evers (1905-2004), owned by the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild. Coercing the arbitrary into fluent conversations or pithy statements, Katchadourian’s book clusters reveal a potent hyper-literacy that is at once linguistic and graphic. New Sortings will include an interactive series titled Woodstacks, in which area organizations and businesses including the Center for Photography at Woodstock and The Golden Notebook, as well as local writers and artists including Carole P. Kunstadt, will create individual book stacks from their own collections. These will be constructed using the artist’s Sorted Book process during the course of the exhibition; each individual or group will respond to stacks created before them. http://www.woodstockguild.org/event/nina-katchadourian-new-sortings-artist-talk-and-opening-reception/
