Después de Carolee: tierna y feroz

Exposición colectiva

Exposición: Ene 7 – Jul 18, 2021


Artpace San Antonio se complace en anunciar nuestra primera exposición de 2021: After Carolee: Tender and Fierce , comisariada por Annette DiMeo Carlozzi . En exhibición en Hudson Showroom, After Carolee: Tender and Fierce fue concebido para el 25 aniversario de Artpace para rendir homenaje a una de sus ex residentes más emblemáticas, Carolee Schneemann , y para dar la bienvenida a Artpace por primera vez a más de una docena de mujeres. artistas con lazos de Texas. De manera sorprendente y dinámica, las obras de estos artistas pueden verse en diálogo con los legados artísticos intelectuales, performativos y eróticos de Schneemann.

Carolee Schneemann fue una artista pionera cuya larga carrera, que comenzó en la década de 1960 y continuó hasta su fallecimiento en 2019, influyó significativamente en la trayectoria del arte contemporáneo y las posibilidades de las mujeres que trabajan en el ámbito cultural. Reconocida por obras performativas como Meat Joy y Interior Scroll , la estética pictórica de Schneemann movilizó gestos, movimientos, objetos, películas, instalaciones, publicaciones y representaciones en una exploración radical de la política de la sexualidad y el espíritu femeninos. En 1999 participó en el programa de Artpace en Residencia Internacional de Artpace, creando la instalación multimedia Vesper’s Pool, cuyas nociones guían este espectáculo .

Después de Carolee: Tender y Fierce socios «Carolee’s Room», una reflexión curatorial sobre Vesper’s Pool y el tiempo de Carolee en Artpace, con una exhibición multisensorial de 30 obras de una nueva generación de artistas que exploran el poder y la amplitud de lo femenino, una búsqueda más urgente ahora que nunca. La exposición presenta a artistas que, como Carolee, trabajan a través de medios y plataformas, uniendo el rigor intelectual con exploraciones profundamente empáticas de la política personal y preocupaciones actuales. Los artistas destacados son Amber Bemak & Nadia Granados, Kristen Cochran, Liss LaFleur, Yuliya Lanina, Beili Liu, Paloma Mayorga, Virginia Lee Montgomery, Ayanna Jolivet Mccloud, Lovie Olivia, SAINTLORRAINE (Britt Lorraine & Kristy Perez), Megan Solis y Julia Claire Wallace .

“Esta exposición habla de la relevancia continua de las obras más transgresoras de Schneemann, como Vesper’s Pool , y su aparente reflejo en gran parte del arte contemporáneo del momento, especialmente en el realizado por mujeres”, le dice Carlozzi a Artpace. “Carolee sirve como inspiración, y para algunos, como musa, para sus reimaginaciones de sí mismos. Tres temas matizados que generaron la residencia Artpace de Carolee en 1999 fomentan una rica conversación con estos artistas expositores: el autorretrato y la huella del cuerpo; transformación a través de la empatía; y comunicación entre las inteligencias del mundo natural. Atravesando disciplinas, estas obras de arte reunidas, incluidas varias creadas especialmente para la exposición, comienzan con el cuerpo y avanzan hacia nuevas nociones de individuo, familia y comunidad «.

Debido a que el arte contemporáneo puede explorar temas de gran alcance, es posible que parte del trabajo de esta exposición no sea adecuado para los espectadores más jóvenes. Después de Carolee: Tender and Fierce estará acompañado por una serie de actuaciones, entrevistas y más. Detalles por anunciar.

Virginia Lee Montgomery

Austin, Texas, USA

Virginia Lee Montgomery (VLM) (b. Houston, TX, USA) is a video artist, sculptor, and facilitator. She received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin in 2008 and her MFA from Yale University in Sculpture in 2016. Working across video, performance, sound, and sculpture, her artwork is a research practice of feminist metaphysics. The work is surreal, latently autobiographical, and paradoxical in form; it is cryptic and literal, conceptual and hand-built, digital and physical. While the artwork shifts in subject matter from ponytails to particle accelerators, to syrups, stones, moths and machines—VLM deploys an idiosyncratic visual vocabulary of repeating gestures like drilling, dousing, or reaching and recursive symbols like circles, holes and spheres. Her diverse artistic movements interrogate the complex relationship between physical and psychic structures. As a working woman artist, VLM leads a surreal double-life; VLM also works as a professional business scribe, a Graphic Facilitator, a job for which she travels the country to diagram the development of strategic ideas at private brainstorming meetings and public conferences for clients. In her work as an artist, VLM turns this skill, which she describes as “mind map scribing,” inwards, rendering the contours of her own subconscious and the logic of her dreams and memories. Collectively, VLM’s symbols, forms, and gestures rupture material surfaces, opening up portals to unknown psychic ends…

She has had solo exhibitions with New Museum (NY), Times Square Arts (NY), Museum Folkwang (Germany), Wright Lab at Yale University (CT), The Lawndale Art Center (TX), Hesse Flatow (NY), Plymouth Rock (Switzerland), Meyohas (NY), and False Flag (NY). She has exhibited internationally at institutions including Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Denmark), SculptureCenter (NY), La Panacée-MoCo (France), The Hessel Museum at Bard College (NY), The Banff Centre (Canada), Socrates Sculpture Park (NY), and The Menil Collection (TX), among others.

Megan Solis

San Antonio, Texas, USA

Megan Solis’ (b. 1990, San Antonio, TX) work splinters and bleeds into drawing, sculpture, video and performance. Recently obtaining her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Solis strives for a forceful intimacy with her audiences questioning the communal pursuit of happiness. Solis has authored and birthed her own heroine, Glory West, a love-sick blonde Texan, who navigates themes of desperation and loneliness creating concerts of unrequited lust, precarious displays of confidence and self-conscious portraits of love for her fans. Glory West’s odyssey encapsulates a monstrous feminine mystique, holding tightly to both self-inflicted hysteria and hapless horror. Solis has participated in the Hello Studio Residency in San Antonio, TX and the Arteles Artist Residency in Haukijärvi, Finland. She has exhibited her work at the Mexic-Arte Museum in Austin, TX, The Invisible Gallery in Houston, TX, the McNay Art Museum and Revenant Gallery in San Antonio, TX, the CICA Museum in South Korea, and the Freedman Gallery in Pennsylvania.
