W.A.L.T podcast PR_final.jpg
 

Have you ever wondered what artists listen to while in the studio and what that tell us

about the artist? London based artist Pia Pack did and took her relocation to Los Angeles as an opportunity to get to know her new city and fellow artists. What Artists Listen To first season explores the soundtracks of Los Angeles female identifying artist’s lives through discussion of tracks on their curated playlist. Inspired by Kim Schoenstadt’s Now Be Here project, Pia decided to focus solely on female identifying Los Angeles artists for the first season of W.A.L.T.

“I love the project because for most artists music has gone hand in hand with their studio practice since the very beginning - it’s a bit like asking to see their dairies. As a listener, it further fleshes out the artists, it’s an insight into their artistic process.“ says creator Pia Pack. The live version will feature Alexandra Grant, Zeal Harris, Cole James, Alison Saar, Shizu Salamando, among others. Pia’s studio work focuses on the way people connect and interact, translating movements and mapping sounds into her artwork. At the centre of her practice is the desire to bring people together. Pia Pack studied fine art in London at Byam Shaw St. Martins School of Art,Wimbledon School of Art, and Hochschule für Künste, Hamburg. She recently completed her MFA at Bath School of Art.

The podcast will launch on 17 March on iTunes, please visit www.whatartistslistento.com for further information and the live version lineup.

Kim Schoenstadt: Context v. Perspective

Chimento Contemporary presents Kim Schoenstadt’s solo booth at Volta NY.

Fresh off the nal US iteration of Now Be Here in Washington, D.C., the project that photographs female identifying artists en mass, Schoenstadt tackles the relationship between situational context and individual perspective in a series of new mixed media works. Continuing to explore human impulses and issues behind our built environment through her signature language of symbolic architecture and spatially engaged installation, Schoenstadt has devised a body of work addressing the tensions between context (cultural and greater sociopolitical relations) and perspective (subjective individual view). Her new works lean out from the wall to claim sculptural space with delicate suspension.

NOT JUST A CITY OF ART MUSEUMS: WOMEN ARTISTS GATHER TO HIGHLIGHT D.C. ART SCENE

The two projects are a collaboration between Meyers, the National Museum of Women in the Arts and L.A.-based artist Kim Schoenstadt. The photos are part of Schoenstadt’s series called “Now Be Here.” She worked with locals in three cities — New York, Miami and L.A. — to bring hundreds of women artists together for group photos. Schoenstadt said she wanted to bring attention to the lack of representation of women in the arts.

On December 10, 2016, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) will partner with Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt to organize a historic event – Now Be Here #3 – a gathering and photograph of South Florida female and female identifying contemporary artists. This community gathering comes at a time when issues of gender equality and identity are at the forefront of cultural discourse in the United States.

“This event is about showing up and being accounted for as a working artist in the South Florida arts community,” said artist and curator Jane Hart, who is working with Schoenstadt to serve as the local artist invited, helping to engage South Florida’s broad and diverse artist population. “It is an idea realized upon the notion of our collective diversity and the inclusiveness of our community. Let’s be together and fully present with one another.”

Schoenstadt launched the Now Be Here series this August at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel in Los Angeles, which inspired 733 artists to come together and connect for a historic group photograph documenting their presence. The second gathering, Now Be Here #2, welcomed 600 participants at the Brooklyn Museum. Now Be Here #3, hosted by PAMM in partnership with Girls’ Club, marks the third iteration of this project and will bring together artists from throughout the region. 

Now Be Here is organized by Kim Schoenstadt along with Jane Hart, Sarah Michelle Rupert of Girls’ Club and Diana Nawi. The group photograph will be shot by Gesi Schilling. Each participating artist will receive a link to the photograph for her archive and the projectwebsite* will list the participants.

SANDEEP MUKHERJEE / RENTANGLEMENT AT THE ART GALLERY @ GENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE 

43880390-0958-4567-9c0e-e5f814f985b7.jpg
 

The Art Gallery at Glendale Community College
is pleased to announce our fall exhibition:  
REENTANGLEMENT • Sandeep Mukherjee

Mukherjee presents his monumental installation Reentanglement, comprised of 10 life-sized painted on duralene panels, installed in a 21-foot vertical site specific installation. This is a re-presentation of his Mutual Entanglements that debuted at Chimento Contemporary in the fall of 2015.  Mukherjee uses the possibility of reconfiguration to explore how painting alters our perception of location and psychological stability. The panels appear almost as a cryptic tower or gateway as the paintings seem to warp into the interior space of the gallery, creating the simultaneous sensations of grandeur and void. The meticulously painted abstract panels - images of  "entanglements" produced with non traditional painting implements including brooms and squeegees- seem to move forward and back as the viewer experiences the piece from multiple perspectives in the gallery.
