NASSAU COUNTY MUSEUM OF ART : "TRUE COLORS" EXHIBITION JULY 2018

True Colors
July 21-Novermber 4, 2018
From Gauguin, Matisse and Kandinsky to the Color Masters of Today
Nothing in art is more powerful than color. From the shock effect of Gauguin’s orange and the inviting Mediterranean blue of Matisse to the purple and gold of the “wild beasts” (Fauves) and the rainbows of Delaunay and Kandinsky, the story of color begins on a thrilling note. By the 1970s, Color Field painting filled galleries and museums with huge expanses of outrageous tones. In today’s art, color moves beyond paint or ink to light itself and experimental media that unleash even more potent effects. Potent even to the point of being considered dangerous, it is the most exciting element of art, the strongest tool in the toolbox. Because it is also a largely uncontrollable force, it remains the most vital source of new art. “Color, above all, is a means of liberation,” Matisse declared.
The full range of color’s magic is on display in this exuberant show of over 100 works from the nineteenth century to this moment’s hottest talents. The roll call of the great colorists is a hit parade of art history’s most exciting names: Monet, Gauguin, Seurat, Kandinsky, Hofmann, Albers, Rothko, Newman, Noland, Louis, Frankenthaler, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, Gerhard Richter, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Andy Warhol and today’s masters of color including Wolf Kahn, Peter Halley, Brice Marden, Juan Usle, Nathan Slate Joseph and Charlie Clough. The show also introduces breakthrough artists, such as Miya Ando and Deborah Kass and packs some surprises in the form of installations made specifically for the Frick mansion, the Museum’s Gilded Age home.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with essays by curator Charles A. Riley II, PhD, whose book Color Codes is on the required reading list of many art programs including the Rhode Island School of Design, Yale and MIT. In addition, the exhibition will be the center of programming that includes a multi-part director’s private seminar on color in art, design, music, literature and philosophy, as well as lectures, artist talks, demonstrations of color theory and technique, and classes in painting and drawing at the Manes Family Educational Center that are specifically tailored to the content of the show. The emphasis of the programming will be an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of color, weaving art and music, psychology, literature, philosophy and design.

GOTHAM MAGAZINE: 5 NOT-TO-BE-MISSED ART HAPPENINGS IN NYC

By Gary Duff | May 17, 2018 | Culture

SHARE 

Artists abound in NYC, which makes the Big Apple the perfect place to get inspiration. Here are five not-to-be-missed art events happening right now. 

Miya Ando: Clouds

Now through August 19, art aficionados can view Miya Ando's latest sculptures at the intimate indoor-outdoor Noguchi Museum in Astoria, Queens. The two site-specific pieces, suspended plate-glass sculptures with images of clouds etched internally, were inspired by the Japanese zengo: “Blue mountain does not move. White cloud comes and goes naturally.” Ando will take part in an onsite discussion on June 3 with the museum's Senior Curator, Dakin Hart, about her new pieces.

The works, suspended plate-glass sculptures internally etched with images of clouds, share Isamu Noguchi’s interest in sculpting ephemeral materials, and in using them to shape space.  Raised in a Buddhist temple by the sea in Okayama, Japan, and on 25-acres of redwood forest in coastal Northern California, artist Miya Ando has always been drawn to the immaterial quality of fog and clouds. She began creating images of clouds in glass cubes and slabs in 2011. Pushing the limits of commercial laser etching technology from the outset, she started small. By collaborating with a highly specialized factory, she has been able to gradually enlarge them. The two examples for the Museum, the first she has decided to hang— Haku-Un (White Cloud) 4.8.1 , the largest to date, and  Haku-Un (White Cloud) 3.3.1 —take the work in a new, more environmental direction.  The pairing of her clouds with Noguchi’s large basalt sculptures was inspired by a Japanese  zengo  (or Zen phrase): “Blue mountain does not move. White cloud comes and goes naturally.” Although the etched image of clouds in the glass is static, the surface of the glass seems to move, as it mirrors changes in the environment. Meanwhile, the clouds shift in and out of sight as viewers walk around them. Seeming to expand and collapse in the charged landscape of the Museum’s indoor-outdoor gallery (Area 1), they are a conceptual and perceptual analogue for Noguchi’s collapsible Akari light sculptures—the subject of the Museum’s current exhibition   Akari: Sculpture by Other Means .   About Miya Ando  Miya Ando is based in New York City and Los Angeles. Her work has been the subject of international solo exhibitions including at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design), Savannah, GA; Shibuya Seibu, Tokyo, Japan; Sundaram Tagore Gallery, New York, NY; and Lesley Kehoe Galleries, Melbourne, Australia.

Solo exhibition San francisco “OBOROZUKI” (MOON OBSCURED BY CLOUDS)

IMG_4521.JPG

https://www.sfstation.com/miya-ando-oborozuki-e2336108

 

Nancy Toomey Fine Art is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Miya Ando entitled "Oborozuki" (Moon Obscured by Clouds) on view from January 4 to February 17, 2018.

 

Miya Ando's inspiration for this exhibition is the Japanese word Oborozuki, meaning "the moon obscured by clouds." Pieces in the show, Ando's second at Nancy Toomey Fine Art, include a new series of paintings on aluminum entitled Yoake (Dawn), ink on aluminum called Kumo (Cloud), as well as works on paper, Gekkou (Moonlight).

 

The word "Oborozuki" in Japanese means "The moon obscured by clouds". Ando's inspiration for the theme of this exhibition is derived from the oldest known Japanese novel entitled " the tale of genji". Written by Murasaki Shikibu, the book is composed of minute, poetic observations of nature by it's lead female protagonist, Lady Murasaki. This ancient novel takes as its premise the fundamental interconnectivity of all things, and the fleeting, transitory awareness this recognition engenders. Nature is depicted not as a force, but as the vehicle that inspires in us contemplation and reverie.

 

A 48 x 96 inch painting (pigment, dye, urethane, resin, aluminum) from the new series "Yoake" (Dawn) as well as ink on aluminum alucore "Kumo" (Cloud) paintings in addition to works on paper from the series "Gekkou" (Moonlight) will be on view.

 

The works in this exhibition are an ongoing investigation into time and temporality. Ando employs visual vocabulary drawn from natural phenomena and reimagines it utilizing metal-based materials. Her paintings of cloud phenomena become a frozen record in time, focusing on the transformative power of shifting light. The works echo the way the sun changes the quality of light in the sky to obscure the true color of everything it strikes.

 

Created by painting on sheets of aluminum with chemicals and then manipulating color and texture using heat, sandpaper, dyes, and other processes, these works nonetheless contain tremendous spiritual depth.

 

Highly industrial and technically painstaking, Ando's works evoke a meditative quality, born from her own cultural roots and her ongoing Buddhist practice.

 

On Display until February 17, 2018.

SCAD MUSEUM SOLO EXHIBITION Gallery Talk

Gallery talk for exhibitions: 'Temporal' and 'Other Situations'

Thursday, Aug. 17

5:30 p.m.SCAD Museum of Art

Savannah, GA

601 Turner Blvd.

Join museum curators and exhibiting artists for a gallery talk to celebrate the opening of two solo exhibitions at the SCAD Museum of Art: "Temporal" by Miya Ando and "Other Situations" by Liliana Porter.

The gallery talk is led by Storm Janse Van Rensburg, SCAD head curator of exhibitions, and Humberto Moro, SCAD curator of exhibitions. An Argentinian wine tasting follows the talk, hosted by the Consulate General of Argentina in Atlanta, in the presence of General Consul Jorge López Menardi.

New York-based artist Miya Ando explores images and materials and their associative cultural significance. Her exhibition brings together three significant works and series made of wood, steel and silk chiffon. "Temporal" underscores the artist’s interest in the contrasts between the steadfast and the ephemeral, the secular and the spiritual. "Temporal" is on view Aug. 17, 2017 through Jan. 14, 2018.

Liliana Porter is best known for her photographs and installations exploring the conflicting boundaries between reality and fiction and the ways in which images are circulated and consumed. Selected works feature anonymous miniature figurines confronted with overwhelming tasks as a metaphor for the burden of labor and domesticity; others present icons such as Joan of Arc and Che Guevara as their legacies are reduced to representations in cheap, everyday merchandise. "Other Situations" is on view Aug. 17, 2017 through Jan. 7, 2018.

The gallery talk and wine tasting are free and open to the public.
