1. Penelope Umbrico & Kiel Johnson at Mark Moore Gallery


    from willteeyang / Added

    Mark Moore Gallery proudly presents Penelope Umbrico’s inaugural exhibition with the gallery, "Mountains, Moving: Light Leaks, and Chemical Burns." Umbrico began this project as an exploration of an analog history of photography within the digital torrent that is its current technological manifestation. She chose the subject of the mountain as represented within Aperture’s Masters of Photography series, in order to contrast these two most singular and stable subjects (the master and the mountain) with the instability and ubiquity of current photographic practices. To this end, Umbrico downloaded the most popular smart-phone camera apps to her iPhone and used them to re-photograph the images of mountains in these books, as well as representations of mountains from other canonical photographs in books and online. Mark Moore Gallery proudly presents "Walldayallday" in Gallery Two, a solo exhibition of new drawings by interdisciplinary artist, Kiel Johnson. Though most known for his cardboard and mixed-media sculptures, the artist will focus exclusively on his drawing expertise for the first time. Johnson is an incredibly skilled draftsman - fastidious in his manipulation of materials, and obsessive in his execution of intricate, elaborately imaginative structures. This new body of work fuses imagery and materials from his immediate surroundings with frenetic displays of his mechanical curiosity – an allusion to our modern web of organic and manufactured entities.

              Two years ago I teamed up with Devon Tsuno, Terry Lee and his team @ Roger.tv to create an educational workshop where art students at Cypress College worked hand-in-hand with artists to produce a short film. The set and all of the costumes were created by the students in a four day super jam. Shot at the school with team Roger and anyone else who had camera. Directed by Terry Lee, Written by Terry Lee, Kiel Johnson and Arthur Mor Art Direction by Kiel Johnson Edited by Arthur Mor FX & Sound by Roger Loud and Clear. Behind the Scenes by Arthur Mor & Will Tee Yang: https://vimeo.com/channels/hyperboletv/21101869 some links: http://www.hyperbolestudios.com, http://roger.tv, http://www.devontsuno.com Congratulations to the students and all those who supported the process over the past few years.

                Roger joined forces with artist Kiel Johnson and Cypress Valley College to create a re-imagining of Jackson 5's "Dancing Machine". The video pays homage to such great movies as "Sixteen Candles", "Breakfast Club" and "Weird Science". As a studio, Roger often takes a convention and puts a twist on it. In this case, we took the idea of the high school prom and asked the question, "What if all the students were cardboard robots?" The result was a futuristic trip down memory lane. Produced by Roger Directed by Terence Lee Music by Paul Parades Extended cut coming soon!

                  The medium of paper is a fragile vehicle – carrying the weight of written thought, but acutely vulnerable to travel, climate, and time. This endangered status accelerates in an increasingly digitized and environmentally conscious society, where the “paperless economy” is turning said material into simultaneous antiquity and the abject. Yet even as paper struggles against its purportedly imminent extinction, artists around the world are paying homage to its precarious empire. Paperless celebrates these refugees of the information age, gathering 14 international artists who create theatrical elegies to the pariah of so-called “progress.” Music By: Chris Kuhlman Exhibiting artists are: Natasha Bowdoin Peter Callesen Doug Coupland Simryn Gill Katie Holten KielJohnson Maskull Lasserre Nava Lubelski Oscar Santillan Karen Sargsayn Jude Tallichet Yuken Teruya Oscar Tuazon Johannes VanDerBeek
