AUDIENCE INTERACTION HELPS CREATE THESE MILKY PORTRAITS BY BEN TRICKLEBANK

Filmmaker and photographer, Ben Tricklebank explores the humanistic need for control through its illusory existence in technology. Endec, his current exhibit at the Gazelli Art House in the United Kingdom, is comprised of two installations, one of which is a new series of photographic prints featuring a female figure partially submerged, yet fully coated in marbled, milky-white fluid.

The swirls of black dye ripple around her body and simultaneously controls, and is controlled by, the motion of a light reflecting pool where audience members can effect the speed and direction of the ripples. This symbiosis of struggle and accord between the figure and the liquid allows the creative process to shape the unexpected outcome of each ‘canvas.’ As one image on display states: control is an illusion and illusion is control.

The second installment of the two-part exhibition is also named, Endec, and will be a short film deriving inspiration from the installation and photographic series to follow. Alongside Tricklebank’s solo exhibition, concepts of control, surveillance and security will be examined in a group show featuring artists working with VR (virtual reality) technology in their practice. Displayed on the first floor, this show within a show will introduce the new medium for the first time within the gallery’s context, surveying ways in which the Summer 2016 release of Oculus Rift might influence trends, commercial and institutional engagement and artists working in this field. A full list of artists as well as contributing partners will announced shortly.

Cy Twombly “Paradise” at Museo Jumex in Mexico City Sept.7th – Oct.12th

CyTwombly_CaminoReal_VIII_HR

Cy Twombly’s “Paradise” opened this past weekend in Mexico City at Museo Jumex, marking his first major exhibition in Latin America.   If you’re a Cy Twombly fan, you know how his gestural abstractions and aesthetic challenged the dominant practice of Abstract Expressionism and the traditions of European painting.  And whether you know any of that at all, it will be a great opportunity to become familiar with a modern master that in someways bridged the gap and perhaps opened the possibilities of how street art today came to be appreciated as intention and aesthetic and not just doodling on walls.

CyTwomby_CaminoReal_VI_HR CyTwomby_CaminoReal_V_HR

Organized by Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo and curated by Julie Sylvester and Philip Larratt-Smith  “Paradise”  presents a comprehensive look at Twombly’s large body of work featuring over 60 paintings, works on paper, sculptures including never before seen works that will be shown for the first time. Show runs until October 12th at Museo Jumex, Mexico City.

Parra “Weirded Out” @ SFMOMA

IMG 2683 605x453 Parra Weirded Out @ SFMOMA sfmoma san francisco museum of modern art Parra

Nothing says “Weirded Out” more than the guy whose moniker denotes paranoia. Amsterdam-based Parra is currently completing an installation mural at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, a huge 30+ foot piece on the second floor landing that will be on display through July, 2012. If you go today, you can maybe see the man completing his work…

Richard Serra @ San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

IMG 2759 Richard Serra @ San Francisco Museum of Modern Art sfmoma san francisco museum of modern art richard serra retrospective raymond brown

We do feel it rare to be able to see a traveling exhibition at two consecutive venues. This past summer, we visited Richard Serra’s Drawing at the MET in NYC, but the buzz in the building had been for the Alexander McQueen exhibition, which was gaining momentum and a labyrinth of lines throughout the building. Our experience with Serra was quiet, but dramatic. The work, of course, was strong, and in its simple construction and arrangement, had a unique language all to its own. But we felt it wasn’t given the proper space to breath.

The move to the SFMoMA proves to be the right conditions for which to see Serra’s work. The natural light, the higher ceilings, and bigger rooms allow for Serra’s drawings and sculptures to exist as they should. We always imagined Serra’s sculptures existing in old industrial warehouses, in large, open spaces that put scale and materials in focus. His drawings, some sketches, some full thoughts, some just examinations of the human’s ability to connect with shapes, angles, and simple construction need their own rooms to thrive.

If you have a chance to stop by Serra’s retrospective, we recommend going in the afternoon during the week, with few people interrupting the experience. Its solitary, and its own universe. Just enjoy it. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report

Wait, we want the tape sculpture that Barry McGee has in London

barry mcgee new work exhibition 4 Wait, we want the tape sculpture that Barry McGee has in London modern art London barry mcgee

We know we wrote about this the other days, but it is always nice to see a San Francisco artist on the other side of the world, but when it comes to Barry McGee, he seems to make it around the world often. He has a new show at Modern Art in London, his first show in the Old Town in 6 years. Whatever, we want to the tape ball.
