Fresh Projects act as a showcase for emerging artists working in all aspects of the digital medium. Shimmer presents two installations, created using generative software, that reconfigure the gallery into a laboratory for innovation in the use of scale and material. In Waken, Beth Coleman and Howard Goldkrand use a code that emulates the movement of bees in nature to create sound that is characterized by diversity, accident, and spontaneous growth. This work, which continues their investigation into system design and generative forms, creates a kind of electronic-architectural distortion of space. In Bifid, Alisa Andrasek uses a form of “design intelligence” – a combination of genetic engineering techniques and design software – to create a field of intricate and translucent fabric structures. Here, Bifid takes the form of an architectural installation, but in theory, it could manifest itself as an infinitely customized design product, the surface of clothing, or a dynamic sound pattern.
In Bifid, Alisa Andrasek uses a form of “design intelligence” – a combination of genetic engineering techniques and design software – to create a constellation-like field of intricate and translucent fabric structures. The orders and synchronicities of this design intelligence provide the fabric with the flexibility to adjust and adapt to a number of configurations in the space. In this exhibition, Bifid takes the form of an architectural installation, but in theory, it could also manifest itself as an infinitely customized design product, the surface of clothing, or a dynamic sound pattern.
Beth Coleman and Howard Goldkrand’s sculpture Waken builds across a network of signals in an installation of bio-dynamic materials and audio speakers. Using a code that emulates the movement of bees in nature, the artists create a “sonic prairie” characterized by diversity, accident and spontaneous growth. Experienced spatially, their installation results in a kind of electronic-architectural distortion of space.
Media Lounge exhibitions and public programs are supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Jerome Foundation in celebration of the Jerome Hill Centennial, and the New York State Council on the Arts. The New Museum of Contemporary Art receives general operating support from the Carnegie Corporation, the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, JPMorgan Chase, and members of the New Museum.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
