Artforum Critic's Picks: Fiona Connor

Fiona Connor

6150 Wilshire Blvd.
January 24–March 14

Fiona Connor, Community Notice Board (Green), 2015, mixed media, dimensions TK.

"Perhaps it is Parker Ito's elastic installation in a warehouse behind Chateau Shatto that best reflects our current moment of fingered screens, zooming surfaces, and gleaming connectivity. Or maybe it is Liz Craft's web of yarn, skeletons, speech bubbles, and ceramic dicks at Jenny's that offers a timely response to our present social and aesthetic desires by way of desublimated Pop scenery. Another approach: Fiona Connor's exhibition, "Community Notice Boards," addresses the influence of Internet technologies on new modes of communication by calling on the social networks of sites experienced IRL only. By re-creating a cross section of bulletin boards sourced from Laundromats, libraries, cafes, and other public spaces throughout the city, Connor negotiates the "found object" as something closer to reproducible image rather than salvaged assemblage or purchased readymade. While these notice boards have been reconstructed in structural and material likeness of the "originals," their faded flyers and scrappy ephemera have been meticulously replicated on aluminum sheets rather than on paper: "Do you have a drug problem?"; "Clases de inglés gratis"; "I buy houses."

Connor's material sleight of hand is a critical act of preservation, one that attempts to underscore how proximity and place now contend with more immediate and immaterial means of communication. Documenting its own obsolescence, Community Notice Board (La Brea), 2015, displays little more than vandalized cork, lone pushpins, and traces of paper. If these boards evoke a sense of loss, the effect is not quite nostalgic—their cheerless condition hardly induces sentimental longing for the past. What does it mean to preserve media and materiality in the privileged space of art? Connor's practice seems to suggest there are larger implications for the work of art and its engagement with the social that exceed the immediate pre/post-Internet binary of our contemporary technological moment."

Tiravanija at YBCA reviewed on domusweb

Arin Rungjang, Golden Teardrop (installation view), 2013. Courtesy of the artist and the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture.

"Much of Tiravanija’s work – whether it is an installation, a print, a documentary, or a curatorial project – fosters the direct and creative engagement of the viewer, user, or participant. He is particularly known for his projects where “things” function as props for visitors to create something of their own, and his interest in how cultural products can foster social production of one kind or another. As a curator, he looks for relationships between his own practice and that of other artists, yielding a rich map of his role as a hyper-connector." Read the full article here

Rirkrit Tiravanija hosts Local Source event at the Headlands Center for the Arts

Marin Headlands, CA - Fort Barry

Headlands Center for the Arts presents: Local Source: Rirkrit Tiravanija

Sunday, February 22, 6:30pm-9:00pm, Sausalito


Internationally acclaimed artist Rirkrit Tiravanija (AIR '15), known for his groundbreaking contributions in the realm of social practice, will orchestrate a shared meal with a mixed menu based on what is fresh and locally available. As we eat together, Tiravanija will talk about various processes and projects that blur the line between artist and viewer, and ask how an artwork might leave a lasting impression when its medium is something as finite as food. Setting the table in Headlands' historic Mess Hall-renovated by artist Ann Hamilton-this gathering invites visitors to engage with art in an exceptionally sociable way.

This event is co-presented with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in conjunction with Tiravanija's recently curated exhibition The Way Things Go. On view at YBCA February 13-June 21, 2015.

Rethinking the Ritual of the Exhibition

by Hans Ulrich Obrist

Philippe Parreno and Paul B.

'The Importance of Being...' is an exhibition on contemporary art taking place in several locations in Latin America throughout 2015 and 2016.  The project is curated by Sara Alonso Gómez. Bruno Devos is the project director.

Allegory of Cave Painting at Middelheim Museum, Antwerp

Allegory of Cave Painting - Group Exhibition

25 October 2014- 29 March 2015

Middelheim Museum and Extra City Kunsthal jointly present: a dual exhibition which assembles modern and contemporary painters, who provide a polyphonic answer to the prehistoric Bradshaw-paintings in Australia.

These prehistoric North-Western Australian rock paintings are continuously rejuvenated by their “living” pigments.

The central aspect of the exhibition in the Middelheim Museum is the dialectic of intimacy and knowledge of our relation with art objects.

The show assembles artworks of, amongst others, Ciprian Mureşan, Michèle Matyn, Alon Levin, Navid Nuur and Hans van Houwelingen, that dialogue with artists from the museum’s collection, like Dan Graham, Ann Veronica Janssens, and Medardo Rosso.

Rosanna Albertini reviews Community Notice Board

Fiona Connor, Community Notice Board, 2015, Exhibition Poster

"Fiona Connor brought to Los Angeles from New Zealand the heartfelt attachment to a sense of equality, a better word for democracy. Her art is a tribute to gestures and habits of social passing on that are not destined to last, or to be considered worthy of attention. Those moments and objects that slip through our fingers like water, like time. Small memorials of the living that nobody loves, just useful, they don’t count. “There is an ethics -she tells me- in renewing and reflecting people’s notice of common needs, to pay a tribute to ephemeral moments.” As most of life is."

COME AS YOU ARE : Feb. 11 - April 15

Diana Thater, Ginger Kittens, 1994

February 11 - April 15 at Montclair Art Museum

COME AS YOU ARE: Art of the Nineties

Featuring works by Diana Thater, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Jorge Pardo

This exhibition marks the first major American museum survey to examine the art of this pivotal decade in its historical context. Showcasing approximately 60 works by 45 artists, it includes installations, paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photography, video, and digital art. Come as You Are offers an overview of art made in the United States between 1989 and 2001—from the fall of the Berlin Wall to 9/11—and is organized around three principal themes: the "identity politics" debates, the digital revolution, and globalization. Its title refers to the 1992 song by Nirvana (the quintessential '90s band, led by the quintessential '90s icon, Kurt Cobain); moreover, it speaks to the issues of identity that were complicated by the effects of digital technologies and global migration. The artists in the exhibition came of age during and reflect the increasingly heterogeneous nature of the art world during this time, as artists of color, women artists, and LGBTQ artists attained increased prominence.

The exhibition is curated by Alexandra Schwartz, MAM curator of contemporary art, with Kimberly Siino, curatorial assistant. Following its premiere at MAM, the show will embark on a national tour.

Diana Thater: science, Fiction opens tomorrow, 1/8, @ David Zwirner NYC

In her new installation, which like the exhibition is titled Science, Fiction, Thater focuses on the dung beetle and the intricate navigation system it deploys in disposing balls of animal excrement, its main source of nutrition. Recent studies have revealed that the species uses the Milky Way to orientate itself at night, currently the only insect known to do so. In an experiment in which the beetles were placed on an outdoor table, they were only able to navigate in their usual straight line with an open view of the nocturnal sky—when their overhead vision was blocked, their movements became erratic and slowed drastically. The same experiment was repeated inside a planetarium, alternately turning the Milky Way on and off, and the animals’ path was demonstratively straighter and faster in light of the galaxy.

PHILIPPE PARRENO quasi-objects ends January 15, 2015

Philippe Parreno’s seventh exhibition at Esther Schipper is timed to coincide with the artist’s installation at the Schinkel Pavillion (November 15–December 21). The gallery show brings together various objects that have appeared as part of Parreno’s work since 1992. Showing that context is as important to our understanding of an object as its physical appearance, the juxtaposed “quasi-objects” take on new meanings and associations.

YBCA presents A Special Curatorial Project with Rirkrit Tiravanija "The Way Things Go"

Arin Rungjang, Golden Teardrop (detail), 2013. Courtesy of the artist and the Office of Contemporary Art and Culture.

For this exhibition, Rirkrit Tiravanija invited artists from Asia and Europe, as well as from the San Francisco Bay Area, to contribute works related to the circulation and anthropology of seeds, plants, food, recipes, and related materials of kitchen culture that have circulated across regions and time.  Featuring 12 artists projects and a wide range of work, from mixed-media installations to film, video, archive-oriented art, The Way Things Go explores how personal effects, gourds, seeds, a recipe, and sugar all yield stories that go beyond each artist’s personal intention, and creates a larger story of interwoven meanings embedded in cultural geography and spatial history.

In Tiravanija’s artworks, “things” often function as props for visitors to create something of their own, creating cultural products, which in turn, foster social production, and demonstrate how origins, journeys, and the stories that surround them are catalysts for bringing people into a more intimate understanding of themselves and the interdependence of cultures. In the exhibition, featured artists share personal and focused stories that open up to larger scenes of human interaction and engagement by redrawing boundaries of trade and labor, colonization, political affiliation, and war—all of which have a profound impact on vernacular, local, and indigenous experiences. Participating artists are: Maria Thereza Alves, Lonnie van Brummelen and Siebren de Haan, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Camille Henrot, Luc Moullett, Museum of Gourd, the National Bitter Melon Council, Pratchaya Phinthong, Arin Rungjang, Thasnai Sethaseree, Shimabuku, and SUPERFLEX in collaboration with the Propeller Group.
