Want
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
May 2, 2017 - June 24, 2017
Want, an exhibition of new sculpture by Robert Kinmont, will be on view on the lower level. Kinmont grew up in the desert near Bishop, CA and has lived most of his adult life in northern California. These rural environments have provided the practical and conceptual foundation for his work, exemplified by his recurrent use of commonplace and natural materials such as wood, pine, and dirt. Kinmont uses these modest materials to explore the relationship between the environment and his own body and life. In his latest work, copper serves as the primary medium, a material Kinmont describes as “warm and friendly” and “malleable in a way that is physical and approachable for the viewer.” Additionally, several works incorporate cursive scripts, the contents of which introduce family and domestic themes. The first Bay Area retrospective of his work, Robert Kinmont: Trying to understand where I grew up, was presented at di Rosa, Napa in 2015.

 
Willie Doherty
No Return
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
May 2, 2017 - June 24, 2017
Willie Doherty’s No Return (2017), a single channel projection, will be installed in the video gallery. No Return was shot in a small town near Pittsburgh in an area once known as the “cradle of Western Pennsylvania’s steel industry,” before suffering from its collapse in the 1980s. While the work engages with the landscape as it looks today, it also approaches it as both a repository for the memories of past experiences and a witness to the ravages of socio-economic change and ecological degradation. In looking at the present, No Return visualizes our shared apprehension about the future. Doherty’s approach and process is speculative. Often taking an existing image or other information as a starting point, he then proceeds to see what can be discovered or found in a location. No Return extends Doherty’s interest in the relationship between landscape and memory and working in locations that bear the traces of contested histories and narratives; some forgotten, some half remembered. The work was commissioned by the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh for their exhibition so it is which remains on view through August 7, 2017.

 
Sylvia Plimack Mangold
Summer and Winter
47 Walker Street
New York, NY 10013
May 2, 2017 - June 24, 2017
Summer and Winter, an exhibition of recent paintings, drawings and watercolors by Sylvia Plimack Mangold will be presented in the main gallery. Beginning in the late 1970s, Plimack Mangold focused her attention on the landscape around her property in Washingtonville, New York and eventually to individual trees. Working from direct observation, Plimack Mangold has painted the maple tree outside her studio window in the summer and winter over successive years. Repeatedly exploring the same viewpoints of the upper portions of the tree provides the viewer with the opportunity to experience the changes within the planes of leaves. Viewing a room of summer or winter paintings emphasizes a less pictorial view – the leaves, or the sky between branches, become areas of pure paint as one analyzes how Plimack Mangold constructs her paintings. A selection of works on paper by Plimack Mangold will also be on view as part of Elements of XXX, a three artist exhibition at 47 Canal, New York. Concurrent to the opening of Sylvia Plimack Mangold’s exhibition at Alexander and Bonin on May 5th will be the opening of Robert Mangold’s exhibition at PACE (510 West 25th Street) from 6 to 8pm.

The Woman Question: Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka
24 West 57th Street
New York, NY 10019
March 14, 2017 - June 30, 2017
Around the turn of the 20th century, the traditional relationship between the sexes was challenged by a series of sweeping social, economic and philosophical changes. Vienna became ground zero for the exploration of human sexuality, a subject that gripped psychologists, scientists and writers, along with the public at large. This more forthright acknowledgment of male and female sexual desire sent thrills and chills through the Austrian art world, infusing the work of Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka with a mix of terror and exhilaration. Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka each approached what was then commonly known as the “woman question” in slightly different, albeit overlapping, ways. Our current exhibition explores these differences and similarities, in the process providing new insights into early 20th-century gender relations and the origins of modern sexual identity. Based on a highly successful 2015-16 exhibition at Vienna’s Belvedere Museum, “THE WOMAN QUESTION” comprises 59 paintings, watercolors and drawings. Gustav Klimt, "Moving Water," 1898, oil on canvas. Private collection.

May 19, 2017 - June 30, 2017
Locks Gallery is pleased to present our second solo exhibition of the Korean artist Yeesookyung, on view May 19 through June 30. The multi-discipline artist, who is a participant in the main exhibition, Viva Arte Viva of the 2017 Venice Biennale, works in moving image, installation, painting and sculpture. The Locks exhibit explores works in two and three dimensions that follow the recent developments in her ongoing series, Translated Vases. Begun in 2001, Yee describes her approach to the series as that of a “matchmaker”, creating organic, “grafted” structures from discarded pieces of Joseon-style ceramics deemed imperfect by potters. As described by curator Seewon Hyun, Yee’s sculptures visually “break down the time accumulated on the materials since the ceramic work came into being” and evolve into conceptual, life-imbued, contemporary forms. The repetition involved with thrown ceramic work also echoes the rhythmic motion of Yee’s own performance pieces and the ritual practices embodied in her studio discipline, Daily Drawing (2005-). The drawings on view become a transcription of the repetitive ritual of her process.

Rena Bransten Gallery is please to present our second solo exhibition of Japanese painter Nobuyuki Takahashi. By deftly extracting the essence of his surrounding environment, Takahashi distills the landscape into its most essential component parts. The resulting paintings are both graphic and deceptively simple – with large areas devoted to open water and sky, a sense of calm and rest permeates the work and summons quiet contemplation. While continuing to explore the landscape of Japan, many of the works in this latest collection of paintings are the result of Takahashi’s first trip to San Francisco in 2015, also his first time ever visiting the United States. Inspired not only by the landscape of the U.S., but by the laid-back atmosphere of Northern California, Takahashi found himself reflecting on his approach to painting, and these works embody his new-found desire to free himself from the rules dictating what a painting ‘should’ or ‘should not’ be. Nobuyuki Takahashi was born in 1968 in Kanagawa, Japan. He graduated from Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music in 1991. He has shown extensively throughout his native Japan over the past twenty plus years, in both group and solo exhibitions. His work is in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura and Hayama, among others. He currently lives and works in Zushi, in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.

Hung Liu: Promised Land
1275 Minnesota Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
April 29, 2017 - June 24, 2017
Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present Hung Liu: Promised Land, an exhibition of new paintings and works on paper based on photographs by American photographer Dorothea Lange. Hung Liu is known for her use of Chinese historical photographs, and Promised Land continues this exploration of history, now focused on America’s Great Depression and Dust Bowl era. While Dorothea Lange’s photographs have become almost synonymous with this era (with iconic images like Migrant Mother, 1936 and White Angel Breadline, 1933) Hung Liu’s paintings, taken in conversation with the rest of her oeuvre, ask the viewer to consider these events in the larger sweep of the human condition. Liu reminds us that forced migration, economic devastation, poverty and hunger are not unique to country, race or culture, and her works at once acknowledge these tragedies, while celebrating the resilience of the human spirit.

Nam June Pike, Alan Rath, Jim Campbell, Tim Hawkinson, Gail Wight, Charles Lindsay, Rachel Sussman
Garage Inventors
260 Utah Street
San Francisco, CA 94103
May 6, 2017 - July 1, 2017
This exhibition features a 30-year span of work by artists who exemplify the ethos of Silicon Valley in the form of the genius “garage” inventor. Many of these artists have deep roots in the Bay Area, and they all channel a streak of “mad scientist” to experiment, discover, and innovate. Yet their works are more than high-tech marvels. Each of these artists harnesses their esoteric skills and knowledge to delve into existential conundrums and to explore the metaphysics of emotion, perception and consciousness. The ultimate pioneer in the genre of new media, Nam June Paik was a Korean American artist (born 1932 in Seoul, died 2006) widely credited as the founder of video art and among the first artists to envision the radical implications of an ‘electronic super highway’ and cybernetics. He co-created the Abe-Paik video synthesizer in the 1960s, which became a key element in his future work involving altered TV sets reconfigured into cyborg sculptures and installations. An MIT-educated engineer based in San Francisco for 30 years, Alan Rath builds electronic sculptures infused with uncannily life-like characteristics. Incorporating LCD screens and custom-designed robotic armatures, the works’ digital and mechanical movements are algorithmically generated sequences with an infinite progression of permutations. This exhibition features a range of work from the 1980s to the present. Jim Campbell received degrees in engineering and mathematics from MIT and has been based in San Francisco since 1980. His work probes the limits of perception with extremely low-resolution imagery through hand-made, LED-based sculptures. Campbell's work is unique in that his medium and message are inseparable: he uses technologies developed for information transfer and storage to explore human perception and memory. This exhibition includes early work from 1990 as well as new work. Tim Hawkinson (born 1960, San Francisco) received his BFA from San Jose State University before moving to Los Angeles. Hawkinson’s creative output channels the qualities of virtuoso tinkerer and prodigious alchemist. For this exhibition he has reconfigured a bicycle into a whistle that plays notes encoded in the notches of the bike’s rear-wheel tread pattern. Stanford Art Professor Gail Wight works primarily in sculpture, video, interactive media and print to construct biological allegories that tease out the impacts of life sciences on the living: human, animal, and other. The interplay between art and biology, theories of evolution, cognition and the animal state-of-being are themes that are central to her investigations. Born in San Francisco, Charles Lindsay began his career as an exploration geologist and is currently the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute’s Artist-In-Residence Program Director. His multi-disciplinary practice involves immersive environments, sound installations, and sculptures built from salvaged aerospace and bio-tech equipment, photographs and videos. Based in Brooklyn, Rachel Sussman recently completed a critically acclaimed, decade-long project, "The Oldest Living Things in the World," that combines art, science, and philosophy into a traveling exhibition and New York Times bestselling book. In her latest project, working with SpaceX, NASA, and CERN, Sussman has created a 100-foot long, handwritten timeline of the universe that begins before the Big Bang and extends 10 to the 100 billion years into the future. "(Selected) History of the Spacetime Continuum" conceptually weaves together astrophysics, geology, biology, mathematics, archeology, history, Einsteinian relativism, and chronocriticism—the study of time itself.
