Visiting Artists

Visiting Artists Fall 2014

September 30:  Haegue Yang 

1:30pm, Lazarus Center Auditorium, 133 W. North Ave. (co-sponsored by Rinehardt and the Mixed Media Lecture Series)

Haegue YangHaegue Yang was born in 1971 in Seoul, South Korea. Currently, she lives and works in Berlin and Seoul. Primarily making complex sensorial installations, sculptures and video, Yang translates her subjective reflections of specific historical figures and concrete domestic environments into a meticulous language of formalistic abstraction. Her works are usually complex installations and arrangements using elaborate fabrication with industrially produced and commercially available products, to labor-intensive sculptures and objects using traditional handicraft techniques. Yang’s spatial interpretations heighten sensorial experience through devices such as sonic installations, moving lights, temperature elements, industrial fans and scent emitters. Yang represented South Korea at the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009) and exhibited at dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel (2012) as well as major institutions such as the New Museum in New York; Walker Art Center in Minneapolis; Kunsthaus Bregenz; Modern Art Oxford; The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Tate Modern. London among others. Her recent solo exhibitions took place at Museum of Contemporary Art, Strasbourg (2013); Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen (2013); Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Glasgow (2013); Haus der Kunst München, Munich (2012); The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2013).

1:30pm, Lazarus Center Auditorium, 133 W. North Ave. (co-sponsored by Experimental Animation BFA)

Brent Green“The only art that really interests me is work that connects us to our sense of wonder and urgency- that helps us fall in love with the world.” Brent Green is a visual artist and filmmaker working in the Appalachian hills of rural Pennsylvania.

November 4: (POSTPONED--NEW DATE TBA SOON) Ilya and Emilia Kabakov

1:30pm, Falvey Hall, 1301 W Mt Royal Ave. (co-sponsored by the Mixed Media Lecture Series)

Ilya and Emilia KabakovIlya Kabakov (Dnepropetrovsk, Soviet Union, 1933) and Emilia Kabakov (Dnepropetrovsk, Soviet Union, 1945) are American-based artists who collaborate on environments that fuse elements of the everyday with those of the conceptual. Their work speak as much about conditions in post-Stalinist Russia as they do about the human condition universally. Ilya was one of the leading figures in the Moscow conceptual art movement that worked outside the official Soviet art system. Ilya came up with the idea of "total installation" which creates a specific atmosphere and changes the viewer’s perception of time and space. Their work has been shown in such venues as the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Biennial, the Hirshhorn Museum, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Documenta IX, Kassel, and the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg among others. In 1993 they represented Russia at the 45th Venice Biennale with their installation The Red Pavilion. Their paintings and installations are in the permanent collections at MoMA and Guggenheim Museum, New York, Center Pompidou, Paris, Tate Modern, London, and other museums. The Kabakovs have also completed many important public commissions throughout Europe and have received a number of honors and awards, including the Oscar Kokoschka Preis, Vienna, in 2002, the Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, Paris, in 1995, the Praemium Imperiale, Japan, 2008, and Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres, France, 2014.

October 7: Joanne Greenbaum

1:30pm, Lazarus Center Auditorium 133 W. North Ave

Joanne GreenbaumJoanne Greenbaum (1953, NYC, B.A. Bard College) is an artist based in New York. Over the past two decades, Greenbaum has developed a singular body of work including painting, drawing, and sculpture, that while instantly recognizable in gesture and spirit, has remained relatively enigmatic. Where her earlier paintings were often characterized by a highly concentrated and linked cluster of forms set against an expansive blank canvas, the new works are Greenbaum's decidedly most dense and labored paintings, confidently mixing disparate materials in remarkably forceful and intricate compositions.

Over the past twenty years Joanne Greenbaum has exhibited internationally at venues including PS1 MoMA, New York, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, The Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas, Kunsthalle, Basel, and Whitechapel Gallery, London. A career-spanning survey of Greenbaum’s work was mounted by Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich and travelled to Museum Abteiberg, Monchengladbach, Germany in 2008/2009. Recent shows include the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Texas Gallery in Houston, and D’Amelio Terras in New York. Greenbaum’s work is represented by greengrassi in London, UK, Nicolas Krupp in Basel, Switzerland, Crone Gallery in Berlin, Van Horn Gallery in Dusseldorf, Shane Campbell Gallery, Chicago, and Rachel Uffner Gallery in New York.
