Please stop by KN: Space for Art in Context to see the solo show I co-curated with Carleen Coulter. Heaven Is A Place Where Nothing Ever Happens features work by artist (and friend) Elizabeth McTernan. Elizabeth created several site specific works for the exhibition, which all relate to her use of the grid and which refer back to the black square. See the exhibition now before it closes on Saturday, December 9th. Our closing party is from 14 to 18 and will feature a curator walk through, glühwein and holiday treats. Please check out the text I wrote : Betray the Grid: Elizabeth McTernan and the Black Square
This July, KN: Space for Art in Context, opened it’s first juried art exhibition. A diverse group of artists answered our call to address the problem of translation. I was very happy to co-curate this exhibition with Carleen Coulter. The exhibition is up from July 6 through August 5, 2017. Please join us on August 5 for a curator talk and walk through at 11 am.
From Google Translate to the Emotional Translator™ app, data-driven automated translations render instantaneous what was formerly a laborious process of “carrying across” (from the Latin translatio) from one language to another. Such programs remain rife with error and miscommunication, and it is unclear if translation can ever approach theoretical perfection. Participating artists were asked to consider the possibilities and limitations of translation.
This show is part of KN’s : in Context Exhibition cycle. The exhibition and event calendar at KN is organized around biannual themes, culminating in juried exhibitions distinguished as : in Context. By grouping performances, artwork, lectures and discussions around a single multiple meaning word, KN: Space for Art in Context acts a laboratory for critical analysis and a space for discourse.
The following artists participated:
Happy to announce in October 2016, the Frauenmuseum Berlin e. V. added me as a new member. A professional organization of women artists, the Frauenmuseum exists to support members and non members alike, through exhibitions, talks and actions. Founded in Berlin the 1990s, the Frauenmuseum has existed since 2007 without a fixed location. In June 2016 it became part of the International Association of Women’s Museums.
My first event as a member took place in January, 2017, at KN: Space for Art in Context. We held a Neujahrsempfang Exhibition, featuring the works of seventeen members of the Frauenmuseum. I exhibited my first ink drawing of 2017, Plattenbau #4, pictured here, in the black frame. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.
