Artforum Critic's Picks: Fiona Connor
 

Fiona Connor

1301PE
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

"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

MORE INFO: http://www.headlands.org/

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.

DATE/TIME: Sunday, February 22

6:30pm-9:00pm

LOCATION: Headlands Center for the Arts
