          • William J. O’Brien @ MCA Chicago


            from MCA Chicago Added 6,923 7 0

            William J. O’Brien, the artist’s first major solo museum exhibition, demonstrates his prolific output in a broad range of media, from sculpture and ceramics to drawing, textiles, and painting. His works on paper usually feature exuberant colors and geometric patterning that mimic the automatic drawings of the Surrealists while faintly evoking psychedelia and dream paintings. His ceramics are playfully formed, often drizzled with vividly colored glazes, and exhibit a range of cultural references, from ethnographic objects of the ancient past to “face jugs” of the antebellum American South. His paintings are accumulations of pigment, fabric, string, and other materials that appear to droop toward the floor, and his sculptures of tenuously attached die-cut shapes, while stiff and upright, seem to create more negative space than positive forms. Stemming from the artist’s interest in language and poetry, the exhibition will be organized like a poem and is divided into several sections, or stanzas. Each section features works in several media to underscore the connections between disparate objects, as well as the artist’s interest in scale. Above all, the exhibition develops new language around O’Brien’s contemporary abstract artworks—language that focuses on process rather than individual expression or technique and that considers his body of work as a reflection of a multitude of cultural sources. O’Brien’s first artist’s monograph, produced by MCA Chicago, accompanies the show. This exhibition is organized by Naomi Beckwith, Marilyn and Larry Fields Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. For more info: mcachicago.org

              from James Zhao Added 6,185 129 7

              Sydney was once again transformed into a spectacular canvas of light, music and ideas when Vivid Sydney took over the city after dark for 3 weeks between May and June this year. Colouring the city with creativity and inspiration, Vivid Sydney 2012 drew the biggest crowd yet, rapidly becoming a must-see event for all residents and visitors of Sydney. I was commissioned by Destination NSW, the organisers of Vivid Sydney, to create a timelapse of the hugely popular light projections at the Sydney Opera House and the surrounding precinct. You are watching the highlights from a total compilation shot over 3 weeks. I want to say a big thank you to Destination NSW for allowing me to join their Media Crew and a big thank you to you for watching my video. Please leave a comment and tell me what you think of the timelapse, as well as any questions you would like to ask. I look forward to uploading my next timelapse. Be sure to check out my Vivid Sydney 2011 timelapse if you haven't already: https://vimeo.com/24742689 Got an idea for a cool timelapse? Send me a message and let's bounce some ideas off each other!

                  Jul 8–Oct 9, 2011 This group of sculptures by Mark Handforth (British, b. Hong Kong 1969) initiates the MCA’s new commitment to blurring the lines between the inside and outside of the museum, enlivening Chicago with contemporary art beyond our opening hours. Activating the MCA plaza this summer, Handforth’s sculptures draw from the visual language of the city—lampposts, traffic cones, police hats—but also introduce surprising icons into the urban landscape, like the oversized coat hanger or gargantuan bone and phone handset. The resulting mix, like a whirlwind of giant debris landing at our doorstep, intends to heighten your awareness of your surroundings and awaken your imagination. More info: mcachicago.org

                      Indonesian-born L.C. von Sukmeister his intervention art molded into the video piece FUCK SEX ! LOVE ART concerns how we humans relate to ourselves and our own artistic potentiality. The artist LCVS urges humankind to take art into consideration to a greater extent, to learn enough to understand what things mean to people in the world. Perhaps, art critics are too uncivilized to fathom such meaning, but this does not preclude that people having less knowledge of art do not understand the significant of artistic words.
