Ed Ruscha exhibition at the Kunsthistorisches Museum

Jasper Sharp, Adjunct Curator for Modern and Contemporary Art at the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna is talking about the exhibition "Ed Ruscha - The Ancients Stole All Our Great Ideas". This exhibition is the first in a new series for which internationally-renowned artists are invited to work with the collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Ed Ruscha is one of the most important artists of our time. Moving freely between painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and graphic design, his work has remained consistently inventive and defining of its time. He first visited Vienna and the Kunsthistorisches Museum in 1961. Exactly fifty years later Ruscha was invited by the museum to return, to spend time with its curators and explore its collections. This exhibition, for which each object was personally chosen by the artist, is the result. September 25 -- December 2, 2012 An exhibition of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, curated by Ed Ruscha For more information see http://www.khm.at/en/exhibitions/current-exhibitions/ed-ruscha/

INDEPENDENT LENS | The Cool School | PBS

http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/coolschool/ For a decade—1956 to 1966—the Ferus Gallery was the catalyst of a nascent modern art scene, grooming idealistic beatniks into competitive, often-brilliant artists. It also helped to solidify the careers of many of New York's shining stars including: Lichtenstein, Warhol and Johns. What was lost and gained is a complex web of egos, passions, money and art. THE COOL SCHOOL premieres Tuesday, June 10 on INDEPENDENT LENS, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, INDEPENDENT LENS is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide. Visit the Web site for more: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/coolschool/

The Simpsons. The Art of America Documentary clip

The Simpsons. The Art of America Documentary clip. Andrew Graham-Dixon charts the history of American art on a coast-to-coast journey. Part 3 - WHAT LIES BENEATH In the final part of his United States odyssey, Andrew Graham-Dixon feels the pulse of contemporary America. In the final part of his United States odyssey, Andrew Graham-Dixon feels the pulse of contemporary America. Beginning in Levittown - the first mass-produced suburb - Andrew uncovers the dark side of post-war consumerism and the role artists have played in challenging the status quo. He visits New York's Metropolitan Museum to see the most subversive artwork of 1950s America, Jasper Johns's White Flag. Pop art defined the 1960s and Andy Warhol was its greatest artist. Andrew examines Warhol's soup can paintings, meets his former lover Billy Name and interviews one of the last great surviving pop artists, James Rosenquist. He travels west down the open road, exploring its art, arriving in Los Angeles, an artificial dream world that has inspired the graphic style of Ed Ruscha and the city's own unique contribution to 20th century design - Googie architecture. Back east, Andrew visits the home of one of his favourite 20th century artists, the late Philip Guston, and gets a private view of his work. He drops into the studio of Jeff Koons to learn how the enfant terrible of contemporary art continues to challenge the boundaries of American taste. Finally, he explores the impact 9/11 has had on America and how a new generation of artists, such as Matthew Day Jackson, have made sense of this tragic event. The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening. The series is a satirical depiction of a middle class American lifestyle epitomized by the Simpson family, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television, and many aspects of the human condition. The family was conceived by Groening shortly before a solicitation for a series of animated shorts with the producer James L. Brooks. Groening created a dysfunctional family and named the characters after members of his own family, substituting Bart for his own name. http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/The_Simpsons http://time.com/3638567/the-simpsons-25-episodes/ http://www.biography.com/people/matt-groening-9542573 http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/matt-groening-reveals-the-location-of-the-real-springfield-60583379/?no-ist Brian Sewell Big Art Challenge UK Art Prize Full Series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azZUF4eVaIk&list=PLTRal7R3G0f-SI4XoSByxArBodGDHHupR&index=6 Understanding Contemporary Art Full Course: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYQIK-gbo8w&list=PLTRal7R3G0f8E9rOf82XbZiBhL6IxzDCJ&index=1 Art After Metaphysics: http://www.amazon.com/After-Metaphysics-John-David-Ebert/dp/1492765481/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1450485945&sr=8-1&keywords=art+after+metaphysics Naked Emperors: Criticisms of English Contemporary Art: http://www.amazon.com/Naked-Emperors-Criticisms-English-Contemporary-ebook/dp/B00JOS49TC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1451990337&sr=8-3&keywords=naked+emperors Art21

PAUL KASMIN GALLERY - The Written Trace

PAUL KASMIN GALLERY - The Written Trace

NYC GALLERY OPENING - http://nycgalleryopenings.com https://youtu.be/Pfs-7p8Fy4c PLEASE SUBSCRIBE: http://youtube.com/nycgalleryopenings THE WRITTEN TRACE CURATED BY ARIELLA WOLENS JUN 25, 2015 - AUG 14, 2015 Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce The Written Trace, a group exhibition curated by Ariella Wolens, on view at 293 Tenth Avenue from June 25 – August 14, 2015. Including works by canonical figures John Baldessari, William N. Copley, Martin Kippenberger and Ed Ruscha, as well as contemporary artists such as Katerina Jebb, Goshka Macuga, Brian O’Doherty and Song Dong, among others. This exhibition focuses on the indefinable aspect of the medium of text. It is an exploration of that which is communicated through sight, a consideration of the visual qualities of words as we abstract them from their connotations. There is a progression of mediums, beginning with the painted word, as seen in the early Christian illuminated text, The Hours of Jacques Hurault, 1500-1510. The calligraphic inscriptions are written in the style of bâtarde, a technique later echoed in the work of Evan McGraw and Zachary Susskind. The correspondence of image and text here demonstrates archaic forms of illustration, a critical aspect of this subject that is later championed in contemporary art by the comics of R. Crumb. Written text as an aesthetic element of art became crucial in the 1960s and 70s, particularly in the work of John Baldessari. In the artist’s film, I Will Not Make Any More Boring Art, 1977, repetition of a declarative statement dictates the structure of the work, offering a connection between language and the medium of film. Evan McGraw’s works on paper from 2014, License, Blizzard, and Number 5, reflect the outcome of Baldessari’s repetitive hand- written works, yet greater importance is placed on calligraphic skill and the materials - parchment paper and eternal ink. Ed Ruscha, perhaps the master of textual representation in contemporary art, treats words as objects. In this exhibition, the prefix ‘Strato’ is presented against a field of color that shifts from red to black. Disconnected from its base, the word may be appreciated for its formal qualities. The letters are imposed across the length of the canvas, made to highlight what the artist calls the ‘rolling roundness’ of the letters. If language is dependent on correlations of knowledge, the only universal aspect of writing is the pure signification of the textual mark. With the endless subjectivity of linguistic meaning, the only grasp on language is the written trace left upon a page. Artists included in this exhibition are John Baldessari, Phoebe Collings-James, William N. Copley, Shaun Crawford, R. Crumb, Katerina Jebb, Deborah Kass, Martin Kippenberger, Dylan Kraus, Goshka Macuga, Evan McGraw, John Miller, Ivan Navarro, Brian O’Doherty, Oliver Osborne, Dieter Roth & Björn Roth, Ed Ruscha, Rose Salane, Mira Schendel, Song Dong, and Zachary Susskind. Ariella Wolens is a writer and curator based in New York City. She received her Master’s Degree in Curating and Criticism of Modern Art from Columbia University and in January 2014 curated Bloody English at OHWOW Gallery in Los Angeles. Wolens is the arts editor for Hot and Cool, an independent magazine based in London. She has written for publications including Acne Paper, Dazed & Confused, i-D, and Purple Fashion Magazine.
