WITH HIDDEN NOISE FEATURED IN ARTFORUM

Posted on July 1, 2014

Artforum recently featured the exhibition With Hidden Noise as a part of their “Critics’ Picks” section. The exhibition was installed at the Glyndor Gallery at Wave Hill in the Bronx, and Artforum critic Allison Young writes that Wave Hill’s public garden and architectural surroundings interacted powerfully with the exhibition’s exploration of listening.

“This is an exhibition about listening, wherein Vitiello traces a lineage for contemporary sound art in the charged silences of Fluxus performances, as in John Cage’s seminal 4’33”, which forced audience members to acknowledge the sounds of the concert space or of their own restless bodies.”

ROSELEE GOLDBERG AND RAGNAR KJARTANSSON FEATURED IN PARKETT

Posted on July 14, 2014

Performance Now, installation view, Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, Moscow

Performance Now curator RoseLee Goldberg and artist Ragnar Kjartansson are both featured in the most recent issue of Parkett focusing on performance art. In the article “Performance Record”, Goldberg talks with Parkett’s editor-in-chief Bice Curiger and editor Jacqueline Burckhardt about the state of performance in the past 30 years.

Kjartansson, who contributes to Performance Now with the work Bliss (2011), is highlighted in several articles. In “The Lure of Repetition”, Kjartansson’s performances are described as theatrical repetitions that often emphasize life’s tragicomicality.

“Repetition is an important feature in much of Kjartansson’s art. Pivotal works such as BLISS (2011), a live twelve-hour loop of a two-minute aria, and THE END (2009), a six-month painting marathon, are only the most recent and well-known examples of a long-standing interest, first reflected in the artist’s graduation piece from the Iceland Academy of the Arts, in 2001.”

STEPHEN VITIELLO AT BARYSHNIKOV ARTS CENTER

Posted on July 16, 2014

With Hidden Noise curator Stephen Vitiello’s installation Light Readings will premiere in New York this winter at the Baryshnikov Arts Center. Light Readings is an interactive multimedia installation and previous versions of the work have been shown at the Texas Gallery, the Menil Collection, and the Berkeley Art Museum. Vitiello is a sound and media artist and his work Decay, Decay, Delay, Decay, created in collaboration with artist Taylor Deupree, is included in With Hidden Noise, currently on view at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery in Minneapolis. His installations have been shown internationally at venues such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the 15th Biennale of Sydney in Australia.

The Baryshnikov Arts Center writes about Vitiello’s Light Readings:

“Vitello sculpts a real-time composition by using small photocell devices to translate light frequencies into an ambient soundscape. Shifts in natural light from BAC’s expansive studio windows, and shadows of people moving through the space blend with bursts of urban sounds from the street below to create an immersive sonic and visual score.”

“Greek Collector Dimitris Daskalopoulos to Receive ICI’s Annual Leo Award” from Gallerist NY

Posted on July 21, 2014

By Nate Freeman

“Dimitris Daskalopoulos, the Greek entrepreneur, mega-collector and benefactor of art institutions the world over, will receive the Leo Award, an annual honor presented by Independent Curators International, Gallerist has learned. The award, which is named after the dealer Leo Castelli, will be presented to Mr. Daskalopoulos at a gala dinner and auction in New York this fall.

“Before vaulting into the highest echelons of several world class institutions—the Board of Trustees of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, the Leadership Council of the New Museum, the Tate International Council, among others—Mr. Daskalopoulos built his family’s modest dairy company into Viviartia, the greek foodstuffs behemoth. An accruing fortune and a keen interest in contemporary art led to the creation and expansion of the D.Daskalopoulos Collection, founded in 1994. The collection now comprises over 500 works by 170 artists, including Matthew Barney, Louise Bourgeois, Damien Hirst, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, and Kiki Smith.”
