I’m happy to announce that I will be part of this wonderful show!
September 27, 2014 - January 18, 2015 Feature Gallery South
Late Harvest juxtaposes contemporary art made with taxidermy with historically significant wildlife paintings, resulting in intriguing parallels and startling aesthetic aesthetic contrasts. The exhibition seeks to simultaneously confirm—through historically-significant wildlife paintings—and subvert—through contemporary art and photography—viewers’ preconceptions of the place of animals in culture. Artists include David Brooks, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Petah Coyne, Ray Ching, Kate Clark, Wim Delvoye, Mark Dion, Elmgreen & Dragset, Carlee Fernandez, IDIOTS (Afke Golsteijn and Floris Bakker), Damien Hirst, Polly Morgan, Snæbjörnsdóttir & Wilson, Amy Stein, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Brigitte Zieger, and others. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
Nicholas Galanin’s mask made from a bible tilted “The Good Book” went on loan for an international indigenous art exhibit at the National Gallery of Canada. Sakahàn: International Indigenous Art is an exhibit of great importance and was held at one of the most prestigious art museums in Canada. It featured recent Indigenous art from over 16 countries. Artwork by UAF Professor Da-ka-xeen Mehner was also included.
Your Feast Has Ended: Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes, Nicholas Galanin, and Nep Sidhu
June 14 – September 21, 2014
The Frye Art Museum is pleased to announce Your Feast Has Ended, a three-person visual cogitation exploring continuum, identity, ritual and adornment with work by Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes (Seattle, Washington), Nicholas Galanin (Sitka, Alaska), and Nep Sidhu (Toronto, Ontario). The three artists work in unison with the ancient and sacred amidst the new and revised, bound by the belief that a people without myth, and a society that fails to look upon itself honestly are destined to the same fate. The artists practice this philosophy through cross disciplinary approaches to storytelling, employing time honored and new techniques to create work that ranges from fine art, music, and performance to film, graphic design, jewelry, and apparel.
