NEW YORK: Ellen Gallagher: Greasy / Gagosian Gallery / January 22 - February 26, 2011

At the request of Gagosian Gallery the images associated with Ellen Gallagher: Greasy and posted here at BlackArtistNews were removed. ?They can be viewed at: http://www.gagosian.com/exhibitions/2011-01-22_ellen-gallagher/

 "The work comes out of my desire to create an expansive, fluid realm that is both the concrete historical fragments it is made up of and the new form it describes."

Ellen Gallagher


Gagosian Gallery is pleased to present recent work by Ellen Gallagher. �Greasy� is her first exhibition in New York since �DeLuxe� at the Whitney Museum in 2005.

From the outset of her career, Gallagher has brought together non-representational formal concerns (seriality, process) and charged figuration in paintings, drawings, collages, and films that reveal themselves slowly, first as intricate abstractions, then later as unnerving stories. The tension sustained between minimalist abstraction and image-based narratives deriving from her use of found materials gives rise to a dynamic that posits the historical constructions of the �New Negro� -- a central development of the Harlem Renaissance -- with concurrent developments in modernist abstraction. In doing so, she points to the artificiality of the perceived schism between figuration and abstraction in art.

Selecting from a wealth of popular ephemera -- lined penmanship paper, magazine pages, journals, and advertising -- as support for her paintings and drawings, Gallagher subjects the original elements and motifs to intense and laborious processes of transformation including accumulation, erasure, interruption and interference. Like forensic evidence, only traces of their original state remain, veiled by inky saturation, smudges, staining, perforations, punctures, spills, abrasions, printed lettering and marking, all potent evocations and emanations of time and its materiality. This attained state of "un-knowing" fascinates Gallagher and is one of the primary themes in her work.

Her new work, which she has described as �charts or maps of a world not yet visible,� requires an exploratory approach, as if navigating unfamiliar territory or ruins. It is a liminal realm that oscillates between legibility and blankness and which appears at different velocities, both sudden and perpetual. Corporeal features well out of overlapping, intertwining abstract fields; protagonists recur in various guises; incompatible narratives meet in fragmentation, cutting, and collage; fact and fiction merge in graphic eddies: Meaning is everywhere, generated by the elasticity between myriad associations.

In An Experiment Of Unusual Opportunity (2008) a macabre scene emerges from an ink-stained ground whose surface folds, twists and bends as though its underlying grid structure is convulsed by an internal energy, while recognizable physiognomic features surface momentarily among its folds. In OK Corral (2008) and Puppy Chow (2009) the urgency of printed media becomes the temporal pulp of a complex cultural past. Taking magazine pages from popular black periodicals, Gallagher soaks them in washes of indigo, slices them into thin strips, pastes the resulting stuff together, cuts it once more, then finally reassembles it to create a �jam� of frequencies and patterns in the swirling surface. Occasionally, legible words escape, disrupting the subtle modulations of the silent blue monochrome. In Greasy (2010), the magazine pages undergo various degrees of obliteration as she applies white ink to the surface to mask everything except the letters e and o; bottles, jars and tubes are whited out, leaving only a few graphic details. In a different mode of dissembling, the Morphia drawings are a series of transformed artifacts or �forgeries.� Drawn in graphite on transparent layers of paper, the transfer of mark-making on one side of the paper materializes onto the other side, making visible the inverse order of representation. Placed between glass so that both sides can be seen, they deliver a palimpsest of constantly shifting patterns that sometimes cohere to suggest a figure appearing from within.

Gallagher's approach is marked by the technological. The experience of working for extended periods on the films that she makes in collaboration with Edgar Cleijne-- where the totality of the work exists only on the screen -- offers a model for the organization of her paintings. IGBT (2008) plays on the horizontal condition of the flatbed surface of painting as an operational device. Its bold abstract ground takes the form of a circuit-board as the template for a geometric fabulation. Circuit-board references, the structures of digital music and its internal patterns, are indexical of the movement of electricity that becomes sound. Two silhouettes are positioned at its center, both inside the structure and floating away from it, like a frontispiece of a nineteenth century novel. The transformation in scale between the small circuit-board and the large-format painting creates a temporal disturbance that directs the invisibility of the acoustic toward the spatial conditions of abstraction.

An illustrated catalogue, designed by Louis Luthi, accompanies the exhibition, with a text by Amna Malik, lecturer in Art History at the Slade School of Art.

Ellen Gallagher was born in 1965 in Providence, Rhode Island. She studied at Oberlin College, Ohio (1982-1984); Studio 70, Fort Thomas, Kentucky (1989); School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts (1992); and Skowhegan School of Art, Maine (1993). In 2000 Gallagher was awarded the American Academy Award in Art and participated in the Biennale di Venezia in 2003. Her work is represented in public collections including Tate Modern, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Whitney Museum of American Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Solo exhibitions include �Watery Ecstatic,� Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston (2001, traveled to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney Australia in 2002); �Preserve,� Des Moines Art Center, Iowa (2001, traveled to Yerba Buena Arts Center, San Francisco and The Drawing Center, New York in 2002); St. Louis Art Museum, Missouri (2003); �Ichthyosaurus,� Freud Museum, London (2005); �Deluxe,� Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami (2005); Tate Liverpool (2007); and �An experiment of unusual opportunity,� South London Gallery (2009).

REVIEW: Kerry James Marshall / Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada / ArtForum / January 2011

Click to enlarge
Kerry James Marshall, De Style, 1993, acrylic and collage on canvas, 8' 8" x 10' 2".



FEW ARTISTS have imagined the present in the manner of art history�s grand styles as successfully as Kerry James Marshall. Although he has made work in many media over the past three decades, he remains best known for large figurative paintings that compellingly interweave explorations of African-American history, the mechanisms of remembrance, and the venerable traditions of old-school European painting. And while the fifty-five-year-old artist has been the subject of important solo museum shows and is a staple of major international exhibitions (including two of the past three Documentas), there have been relatively few opportunities to consider the development of his painted oeuvre on its own.
All the more welcome, then, that the Chicago-based artist�s first one-man exhibition in Canada�organized by Kathleen S. Bartels and artist Jeff Wall, and on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery until January 3�conjoins eight iconic canvases from the 1990s with a complement of recent works (including a series of prints). A studied selection rather than a survey, the three-room show provides a valuable chance to take stock of Marshall�s position vis-�-vis the histories of painting he strategically engages. The picture that emerges from this restrictive focus is of an artist committed to using the formal conventions of European picturemaking in and of themselves and as springboards for contemporary political and cultural commentary.
The considerable literature on Marshall typically frames his practice in terms of identity politics and reads his paintings against the backdrop of the artist�s biography, which coincides with important benchmarks of the civil rights struggle in the United States. It is easy to see why such interpretations prevail, for Marshall has committed himself to an artistic program of visualizing African-American personages and histories and has famously resolved never to include a white figure in his art. (In this vein, his five-venue traveling solo exhibition in 2003�2005 was titled �One True Thing: Meditations on Black Aesthetics.�) To neglect such openly stated polemics would be to misread Marshall�s art, but to foreground them at the expense of an account of his formal investments is to sell him short as a painter. Thus, somewhat against this grain, the medium-specific focus of the current exhibition provides space to consider how the artist�s extended engagement with the canon of European painting elaborates the more overtly political content of his work.
The earliest piece in the show�a large, colorful 1993 canvas titled De Style�inaugurated many of the terms for the artist�s subsequent painting practice and provides a good case study for the lens the exhibition affords. In this oversize, multifigure composition, Marshall plays with two seminal traditions of Dutch painting in equal measure: group portraiture and abstraction. By inscribing the vernacular social space of the African-American barbershop within the form of the seventeenth-century large-scale group portrait, Marshall makes good on his agenda of inserting black figures within frameworks from which they have typically been excluded. But the artist pointedly invites the viewer to appraise the nonrepresentational qualities of the picture as well. From his insistent reiteration of the horizontal and vertical lines that organize the composition and emphasize its flatness to his concerted use of the five �zero degree� colors (the primaries blue, yellow, and red, with black and white), Marshall explicitly recasts the painterly tropes of Piet Mondrian. Lest one miss these cues, the artist homophonically titles his piece in reference to the twentieth-century movement associated with such abstractions: When �De Stijl� becomes De Style, we know we are in the very particular realm of Marshall�s artistic practice. The verbal equivalent of what the artist renders in paint, the title calls out to an important chapter in the medium�s past, impressing on it a vital inflection of present concerns and figures.
Such references abound in Marshall�s paintings, and it�s fun to read many of his formal moves as consciously inhabiting previous artworks. Familiar compositions, figural poses, brushwork, and color palettes from myriad episodes in the medium�s history are everywhere put into play, challenging viewers to seek them out. (I found myself wondering: Is that mirror a quotation of Manet�s Bar at the Folies-Berg�re? That figure lifted from Courbet�s Stonebreakers? Isn�t that facture explicitly Gustonesque?) However, the ultimate strength of Marshall�s citational strategy transcends the art-historical parlor game it elicits, evincing something more concerted than typical painterly appropriations. Indeed, Marshall�s borrowing is fundamentally different from the way Titian might cop a figure group from Giorgione, for example. Marshall is undoubtedly looking for tricks of the trade and guideposts for how to put pictures together, but he is simultaneously aligning himself both within and against a specific history of painting. It is a complex program of reference and amendment, which serves not only to position Marshall within an august lineage but also to read the history of art in light of its blind spots. That is, as much as Marshall conjures painting�s history and desires to converse with it, he offers critiques and correctives�unraveling the �naturalized� fictions the medium has often serviced. This is most overt when Marshall addresses the ideologies of narrative painting, laden as it is with religious and political histories of power and social control. But Marshall does not stop there. As Wall argues in his smart, compact catalogue essay, the artist enlists �every part� of the art-historical canon in order to populate these various genres with black subjects and his own aesthetics�rewriting them, marking them with difference.
Click to enlarge
Kerry James Marshall,Souvenir I, 1997, acrylic and glitter on canvas, 9' x 13' 1".
Through this interpretative frame, the exhibition can be read as a catalogue of Marshall�s tour through art history: The 1995 �Garden Project� paintings can be seen as a hybrid of history painting and the pastoral form; Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, both 2009, become Baroque full-length nudes; the three �Vignette� paintings of 2005 read as meditations on sentimental, Rococo fantasy; the Black Painting, 2003�2006, is a recast domestic genre scene, and so on. By bopping among forms, Marshall underscores the radical contingency of each and unravels its claim to a totalizing worldview. Thus the forms and content of Marshall�s paintings play off one another, taking his project far beyond a literal excursus on issue-based politics and raising more structural questions about representation and visibility generally.
As interesting as this strategy is between works, it is arguably even more compelling when it happenswithin individual paintings. Among the works on view here, this �meta� style is most dynamic in the canvases from the mid- to late 1990s. Each of these paintings�drawn from his �Garden Project� and the 1997�98 �Souvenir� series�features an image characterized by several registers of representation overlaid into one pictorial space; together they constitute the heart of the show. In Watts 1963, 1995, for example, a loosely naturalistic depiction of three children on a lawn is disrupted by all sorts of diverse pictorial incidents: the text running throughout the image; the pink stenciled forms, cartoonish flowers, stylized bluebirds, and diagrammatic sun; and, perhaps most emphatically, the areas of gestural abstract brushwork. As much as all of Marshall�s outward-glancing figures address and implicate the viewer, these shifting modes of representation also serve to, in the artist�s own words, �intrude,� �disrupt,� and �disturb� the fictional transparency of the image. That is to say, while ironically re-presenting urban public-housing projects that have �garden� in their title in a kind of contemporary history painting, Marshall here also underscores the contingency, and subjectivity, of pictorial representation itself. Watts 1963 and the other paintings of this type are made of distinct component modes, each of which individually proves incapable of relaying the whole story Marshall wants to tell. Working in concert, however, these individual manners add up to a complete image, in which difference, instability, and pictorial interdependence remain at the fore.
Nowhere is this manner of self-reflexive play more apparent than in Marshall�s �Souvenir� pictures, each of which contains a stenciled glitter frame within the image that duplicates the rectilinear format of the canvas. These frames not only reinforce the flatness of the paintings, but also echo the memorial banners depicted within many of the images (featuring, for instance, portraits of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Martin Luther King above the phrase WE MOURN OUR LOSS). The charge of this rearticulated framing is most pronounced here in Souvenir I, 1997, in which the golden glitter fringe of the felt banner rendered in perspective within the image re-appears around the painting itself�as if stretched and flattened out to coincide with the plane of the surface before which we stand. This device functions to collapse the different spaces of representation and to implicate us in our own looking, revealing Marshall�s standing interest in shuttling his viewer�s attention between the depicted space and the physical reality of the canvas. It also, interestingly, proposes that the painting might somehow fulfill the same memorializing task as the banner, thus picturing its own use. The very physical stuff of these paintings buttresses this sense of functionality as well, for their supports�swaths of canvas attached directly to the wall with screws, rather than stretched over a wooden frame�bespeak easy portability. More than conventional canvases, which rhetorically project solidity and permanence, these paintings look like they could be quickly taken off the wall, rolled up, and shown elsewhere if need be. They have the physical quality of banners�of images intended more for urgent use than for relaxed contemplation. (This is an inquiry Marshall followed to its logical conclusion in other paintings from this time�not included here�which remade banners as paintings.)
In Marshall�s most recent work, his strategies of collapsing the frames of representation appear to have become more synthetic, knit into the narratives of the images themselves rather than revealed in visibly different constituent parts. When it works, this is an amazing tack, and the most gripping image in the exhibition is among his newest: the life-size, half-length portrait Untitled; Painter, 2010. This piece depicts a seated artist in the studio as well as the painted self-portrait on which he appears to still be working. While, of course, any depiction of an image maker provides fertile occasion for a meditation on the mechanisms of making images�that quintessentially modernist preoccupation�Marshall ups the ante here, using the structure of the image itself to poetically explore his central concerns about representation, race, and self. The painted artist, whose face is rendered in Marshall�s signature uninflected black, is shown wearing a shirt with a camouflage-like design�he is depicted as doubly invisible. The image he paints, on the other hand, is cast in a vibrant rainbow of pinks, the kind of colors that until recently were marketed in art-supply stores generically as �flesh tone.� Marshall depicts the painter at the moment after he has put down the pink brush and begun to render his own face, filling in ready-made, paint-by-number compartments with dark blue hues. The image is a powerful metonym for the central concerns of the first thirty years of Marshall�s art, self-reflexively picturing as it does an unfinished moment of self-representation within the hallowed historical genre of portraiture. And as one of the most recent works in the show, it leaves us with Marshall�s contemporary diagnosis, showing that although the painter�s image is coming into focus, the most important parts remain a work in progress.

One Song: Daniel Bejar's Destroyer finds a different angle on Kara Walker's words

January 25, 2011 |  5:27 am
Daniel Bejar forces listeners to hear Kara Walker's words from a different angle on �Suicide Demo for Kara Walker.'
DESTROYER_6_
Musician Daniel Bejar
Appropriation -- the act of making something your own by copying it -- has been a hot topic in the art world at least since Andy Warhol first closely examined the can that contained his lunch. It's become increasingly relevant in popular music circles too, leading to big questions about intellectual property and the nature of originality.
�Suicide Demo for Kara Walker� employs appropriation in fascinating ways. It's on �Kaputt,� the new album from Vancouver-based bard Daniel Bejar's semi-solo project, Destroyer. �Kaputt� rethinks Destroyer's noisy, rococo indie rock within the startling context of New Romantic smooth jazz, in the process changing the meaning of clich�s like �mellow� and �art rock.�
All the songs on �Kaputt� pose this challenge, but �Suicide Demo� goes furthest by featuring lyrics Bejar cut up from text-filled cue cards sent to him by the fine artist Kara Walker. Walker herself is an appropriation genius, known for work that fearlessly interrogates the deep history of African American and female oppression through refashioned imagery. Singing loaded phrases like �Seen you consorting with your Invisible Manhole� or �Don't talk about the South, she said,� in his quavery Canadian tenor, Bejar doesn't become Walker but forces the listener to hear her words in a different voice, from a different angle. Disturbing and illuminating, �Suicide Demo� leads us somewhere new.

Suicide Demo for Kara Walker
Music For Kids Who Can't Read Good

JANUARY 24, 2011


Destroyer�s Kaputt is the best album I�ve heard so far in 2011 and my favorite of Dan Bejar�s nine albums. Much has been said about the album�s vintage 80�s sound (referred to as soft-rock, smooth jazz, or �ambient disco� depending on who you�re talking to) but I find it amazing how Bejar has taken a style of music that is easily laughed off and used it as the medium for his most ravishing work. The album strikes a balance of being faithful to the sound, with it�s palette of airy synths, extravagant woodwinds and soulful back-up singers, and creating something entirely new that�s both whimsical and stunning. The best example is the lively eight-minute epic, �Suicide Demo for Kara Walker�, the centerpiece of the album and the track that fully realizes its� potential.

The song�s curious title is actually far less sinister then you may expect on first glance. The �Suicide� the title refers to is the 70�s synth-rock band and Kara Walker is a contemporary artist who collaborated with Bejar on the songs� free association lyrics. The track opens with a hazy blend of synths, guitar, piano and flute that immediately puts you in a trance-like state. Everything about the song evokes a dream from the abstract lyrics to Bejar�s drowsy, sly vocal delivery. The lyrics are nonsensical by nature, yet never boring, feeling like long run-on sentences that are full of interesting words and clever turn of phrases (�Longings, longings, longings, all in vain, just ask Vanity, abandoned out in the rain by the world, another proud American�). Most breathtaking is the song�s instrumental refrain, a captivating display of dueling instrumentation amidst the pulsating electronic backdrop. The horns and woodwinds take turns one-upping each other with their increasingly flamboyant improvisations, resulting in the most arresting musical passage I�ve heard this year. In other words, a masterpiece.

Battle of Wilson's Creek

To observe the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Wilson�s Creek just outside Springfield, Missouri, the Wilson�s Creek National Battlefield Foundation is planning a commemoration August 12 to 14.

This event will include a full-scale Civil War battle reenactment, period civilian activities, crafts, educational activities, historical information booths, and much more. It will be on property north of the battlefield, and all proceeds will support the battlefield.

The conflict that threatened the future of the nation came home for the residents of southwest Missouri in August 1861, when two armies descended on the oak hills south of Springfield. The Battle of Wilson�s Creek, the second major Civil War battle, decided the fate of Missouri and defined its role in the war. More than 2,500 Union and Confederate soldiers were killed, wounded or missing after the battle.

In 1961 on the 100th anniversary of the battle, Wilson�s Creek National Battlefield was dedicated, becoming one of the best preserved and most pristine Civil War sites in the National Park System. Today, more than 150 years later, the events there are still remembered. Visitors to the park can walk along the Wire Road like the young soldiers who fought and died, relive the battle from the perspective of the Ray family and understand the impact of the war through educational exhibits and artifacts in the Civil War Museum and Visitors Center.

Visit the nation�s historical sites over the next four years � the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the Civil War � to keep the meaning of these special places alive for future generations.
