Pick of the Week: Peter Alexander
Pick of the Week: Peter Alexander
Exhibition review by Cole Sweetwood for Artillery Magazine

It’s not that difficult to be contemporary. Be it through art, or writing, or simply conversation, we’re almost always discussing what’s right in front of us. It’s another thing all together to create something which takes on an entirely new meaning decades after fabrication. This is the power of Peter Alexander’s exhibition “Light in Place,” on view now at the Cirrus Gallery.

Lita Albuquerque's "Red Earth" at the Huntington Gardens
through November 2, 2020

A new site-specific artwork by Lita Albuquerque, “Red Earth,” greets visitors at The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens as garden areas reopen after a closure of more than three months as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally scheduled to go on view in March, the temporary installation centers around a boulder capped with bright red pigment placed among towering bamboo in a grove of the Japanese Garden. It is exclusive to this particular time and place and is “a stand-in for what I am hoping the visitor to feel, a sense of calm in the midst of chaos,” Albuquerque said. “Red Earth,” which closes Nov. 2, was commissioned as a part of The Huntington’s Centennial Celebration.

November 7 - December 12, 2020 at David Kordansky

The Japan Drawings brings together four groups of works—all shellac ink paintings on Gampi Torinoko paper—that Weatherford produced during a 2019 residency at Troedsson Villa in Nikko, Japan. While a selection of these drawings was presented in the gallery’s Online Viewing Room in May 2020, this physical exhibition allows viewers to appreciate the full scope of the project, as well as both the intimacy and materiality of the individual works and their many moods and impressions.

an interview by Lauri Firstenberg for Compound LB

Glenn Kaino transforms conventional materials and forms through a process of working that mobilizes the languages, logics and economies of other creative disciplines as raw elements in artistic production. Conceiving his practice as “conceptual kit bashing”—Kaino synthesizes objects, performances and site specific encounters by reconfiguring conditions of cultural spheres, where disparate ideas and materials are forced to make contact.

Exhibition Guide

For more than 50 years Bruce Nauman (born 1941, Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States) has continually tested and reinvented what an artwork can be. His work is difficult to confine to any one movement, genre or medium. However his highly experimental approach makes him a key figure within art today. His interest in ambiguity and shades of meaning relates to daily human experience, where certainty is not always guaranteed.

by Katie White on Artnews, September 23, 2020

The lifelong provocateur's three new works suggest a loneliness and vulnerability that are all too familiar. Bruce Nauman has made a career out of unsettling audiences—or at least, shaking up the dailiness of life—with a various-and-sundry practice that has stretched from the absurdist, at-times whimsical performance pieces that first gained him recognition in the 1960s, to distressing sculpture and video works that boldly take torture as their subject matter.
