Installation view of #MichelFrançois and #AnnVeronicaJanssens two-person exhibition “The Song of the Araponga,” on view at the gallery through Friday, August 9th. From the press release: “The artefacts created for ‘The Song of the Araponga’ create impressions of distinct scenarios, developed to set the stage for the paradox between the old-fashioned and the magical nature of things, the invention of a split, one makes it a stylistic device, an oxymoronic, hallucinatory position to converse with the araponga.” #Bortolami

#TomBurr, “Inventory of Inherited Masculinities,” 2019, Plywood, paint, steel hinges, Philip Johnson’s jacket, books, magazines, is on view now in the artist’s exhibition “Tom Burr / MATRIX 182 / Hinged Figures” at @thewadsworth through September 8th, 2019. Burr’s white, Minimalist hinged figure sits in harsh contrast to the rose-colored carpeting and Baroque interior of the Austin House living room. Careful, vertical stacks of books bear titles that illuminate Austin’s complex persona, which operated in numerous physical and psychological spaces. Burr sees Austin’s home as a monument to high camp and fantasy. Echoing Austin’s multidimensional nature, each room is like a theater set with a distinct style from a different time period. #TheWadsworth #Bortolami

#EricWesley’s work “Estate,” is featured in this month’s issue of @yesandnomag. “Estate,” which began as a special project at this year’s @alacontemporary in which the artist recreated his office behind his studio as a freestanding sculpture. This work was titled “Estate,” however it was not for sale and instead the artist has made every artwork he has made for sale at the total price of $1,000,000, with the same title. More details are forthcoming! #Bortolami

Installation views of #TomBurr’s works “Video Booths,’ 1995, and “Palm Beach Views,” 1999, on view at @museumludwig in the group exhibition “Family Ties: The Scröder Donation,’ through September 29th, 2019. From the press release: “In the 1990s a new art scene began to form in Cologne. New galleries, magazines such as Texte zur Kunst, and the alternative exhibition space Friesenwall 120 were started. Alexander Schröder followed these developments from Berlin. Already as an art student at the Hochschule der Künste Berlin, he founded his own gallery along with Thilo Wermke. At the same time, he began collecting art from the 1990s and 2000s with his special eye. Today his collection exemplifies the idiosyncratic and sensual side of this era, which was shaped by Conceptual Art. It demonstrates the significance of artist groups and collaborations in changing constellations at the time. Proximity and distance, connections and competition, inclusion and exclusion existed in productive friction with each other.” #MuseumLudwig #Bortolami

Installation view of #BarbaraKasten’s presentation in our viewing room, titled “CONSTRUCTS 1981 – 1982,” on view through Friday, August 9th. From the press release: “At its core, Kasten’s work is concerned with the interplay of light, color, and geometry while challenging and manipulating her materials. Many of the components are staged in positions that rely on gravity to hold them together, lending them a sense of fragility and implying a mysterious existence. Kasten actively arranges each tableau; relocating lights, and physically moving in and around these constructions. Her work is theatrical: it is literally staged. The placement of these objects in space is a way of mark-making and the camera’s final output is a two-dimensional plane.” #Bortolami

Opening tonight, Friday, June 28th from 6:00 to 8:00, a two-person exhibition by #AnnVeronicaJanssens and #MichelFrançois titled “The Song of the Araponga.” From the press release: “Former partners and collaborators, their new and recent works create a poetic exchange between the two artists. François presents objects and their implicit origins: a constructed corner, copied and reimagined from a courtyard in India; a soccer ball assembled from a leather jacket; worn sandals cast in bronze. Interspersed, Janssens places smooth, translucent glass rolls and brilliant white glitter scattered across the floor, iridescently. Their assemblage creates a tableau that is both aerial and terrestrial.” We hope to see you tonight! #Bortolami

Opening next Friday, June 28th from 6:00 to 8:00, a presentation of Polaroids from the early 1980s by #BarbaraKasten in our viewing room. From the press release: Kasten has been photographing objects for forty years, capturing them in a way that simultaneously redefines the space they occupy and abandons reality completely. She has described her practice as ‘a specific personal photographic vision with the arrangement of non-representational objects as a source,’ staging such materials as plexiglass, metal wirings, and mirrors. The presentation will remain on view through Friday, August 10th. Pictured here: “Construct X-B,” 1981, Polaroid polacolor. #Bortolami

Today at #CaitlinKeogh’s work “Stairs for a Theater,” 2019, Vinyl, for #ArtBaselParcours, an event was held for the 30th anniversary of the last canton in Switzerland passing the law for Women’s right to vote. Caitlin Keogh is an artist whose work is embedded in feminist discourse. She is honored that her artwork for the Parcours program is a setting for an event celebrating women's suffrage in Switzerland. #ArtBasel #Bortolami

#RebeccaMorris, “Untitled (#07-19),” 2019, Oil and spray paint on canvas, is on view now in our booth, P15, at @artbasel. Morris will often use unstretched canvas as a tarp to catch errant drips from other paintings, a technique which serves as catalyst for entirely new compositions. Once stretched, Morris covered the majority of the surface with a thick, impasto oil that was then spray painted silver. The highly reflective finish resembles burnished metal, yielding to organically shaped cutaway “windows” which reveal the lush, matte color field beneath it. #ArtBasel #Bortolami

bortolamigallery

On view in our booth, P15, at @Artbasel, is this work by #RenéeGreen, “Space Poem #1,” 2007, 27 Poly 600 banners. “Space Poem #1” is Green’s first of six “Poems.” Individual banners in this poem sample text from a range of sources: literary titles, artworks, names of deceased friends and influences to whom she pays tribute, direct URLs, and cryptic phrases pulled from the artist’s own life and practice. The banners push their medium compositionally, typographically, and chromatically, testing the possibilities and constraints of the industrial readymade through bold and disparate design sensibilities. Green’s Poems are a matrix of complex intellectual constellations, uniquely subject to the viewer’s interpretation and navigation. While the individual banners distill and expand text, the Poem manipulates spatial relations, creating unpredictable analytical experiences. What-ever its configuration or exhibition site, “Space Poem #1” reveals the infinite potential of language. #ArtBasel #Bortolami

Today, Monday, June 10th, #CaitlinKeogh’s “Stairs for A Theater,” 2019, Vinyl, opens to the public in the the Parcours sector at @artbasel. Keogh is interested in how physically breaking up a picture can make it unstable; by applying her composition to the stairs, she literally pulls the image apart. “Stairs for a Theater” is not only an exploration of pictorial stability, but also an experiential way to display a two-dimensional picture. The dissection and enlargement of the image of pearls, flora, and cut-outs creates an immersive, almost mesmerizing experience. As the viewer changes position on or around the stairs, components of the image become hidden or transformed. The Theatre is a central site in Basel, its staircase leading to a courtyard that surrounds the famous Tinguely Fountain. Visitors walking up and down and lingering on the stairs will appear to be wandering through a painting or levitating within it. Keogh experiments with this visual contrast and engages with the disjuncture between the architectural, utilitarian agenda of the stairs and the aesthetic language of a superficially applied picture. Keogh’s vivid, seductive paintings reimagine fragments of female bodies, natural motifs, pattern, and ornamentation, exploring questions of gender and representation, articulations of personal style, and the construction of artistic identity. #ArtBaselParcours #Bortolami

Installation view of #TomBurr’s exhibition “Tom Burr / MATRIX 182 / Hinged Figures,” on view now at @thewadsworth through September 8th, 2019. From the press release: “Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, “Tom Burr / MATRIX 182 / Hinged Figures” features a selection of the artist’s reclining figures that often make reference to notable individuals from queer history and Modernism. The Wadsworth’s prominent role in the history of Modernism is directly addressed in several portrait subjects, including Chick Austin, Gertrude Stein, and Virgil Thomson. Burr began the series in 20005, and this MATRIX presentation constitutes the largest assemblage of the reclining figures in a museum exhibition to date.” Pictured here: “Sam-I-Am,” 2019, Plywood, paint, steel hinges, mirror, photographs and printed material, steel push pins. #TheWadsworth #Bortolami

These entirely unique sculptures function like colorful line drawings which illuminate the metallic sheen of copper and brass.” #Bortolami

#TomBurr's seminal work “Deep Purple,” 2000 is now on view in a group exhibition at the @desmoinesartcenter called “Queer Abstraction,” curated by Jared Ledesma opening today, Saturday June 1st. Burr’s large-scale sculpture will feature prominently within the exhibition installed in the I.M. Pei-designed museum. Spanning both indoors and outdoors, a third of this sculpture will float above a reflecting pool and stand in dialogue with #FélixGonzálezTorres's “Untitled (water)”, 1995, a massive blue beaded curtain. Notably, “Queer Abstraction” will be the first exhibition in the Des Moines Art Center’s 70-year history to focus exclusively on queer subject matter. #QueerAbstraction #DesMoinesArtCenter #Bortolami

#CaitlinKeogh, “Bb,” 2019, Acrylic on canvas, will be on view in our booth, P15, at this year’s @artbasel, alongside works by #RichardAldrich, #DanielBuren, #RenéeGreen, #AnnVeronicaJanssens, #IvanMorley, #RebeccaMorris, and #ClaudioParmiggiani. About the work: Keogh’s newest series focuses on each letter of the alphabet. The paintings draw upon the design and compositional elements of illuminated manuscripts and utilize her own typeface inspired by William Morris’ fantasy novel, The Wood Beyond the World. Converging figurative elements with the lettering, depth and perspective vary across each canvas’s surface. In “Bb,” 2019, Keogh paints a partially headless female form sitting on bunched fabric and holding the hand of a figure reaching in from beyond the canvas’s edge. A life-size letter “B” made of delicately painted pearls and drop shadows, a reoccurring symbol in the artist’s work, floats in front of the figures body and contains its form within the letter’s borders. #ArtBasel #Bortolami

#DanielBuren’s “Les Guirlandes,” 1982 – 2019, work in situ (third version), is on view at #TheHighLine through March 2020. The work, originally made for documenta VII in Kassel in 1982, responded to the arbitrary and absurd organizing principle of the documenta VII exhibition catalogue, in which all of the participating artists were listed by date of birth. Buren included a sound component that alternately played a voice reading the names and colors of the flags in 14 different languages and excerpts of classical music works arranged in chronological order by the composer’s date of birth. “Les Guirlandes” was re-staged in the Public Sector of Art Basel Miami Beach in 2017, and now for its third iteration, it will stand on the High Line for a year in part of the group exhibiton “En Plein Air,” curated by @ceciliaalemani and @highlineartnyc. #EnPleinAir #Bortolami

Starting tomorrow, Saturday, May 25th, two works by #VirginiaOverton will be on view at @art_omi. The first is “Untited (Mobile),” 2018, 1999 Ford F 250 4 x 4, steel tank, hardware and paint. From the tow arm of this pick-up truck, Overton hangs a steel tank, creating a mobile sculpture on a mobile vehicle. The entire surface of the truck and industrial tank is covered with a blanket of deep blue car paint so that all elements of the work cohere into a singular union. The paint explores the pickup as a tool, a symbol of a mobility and ambition, and as a sculptural material. The repurposed oil drum functions as both a seat and as an aperture, to be used as viewing station to frame other elements of the park and views of the landscape. The second is “Untitled (After Grosvenor),” 2016, Copper. #ArtOmi #Bortolami

#RichardAldrich’s work “Inanna,” 2016, Painted bronze on marble base, will be included in the group exhibition “Abstraction: Aspects of Contemporary Art” at the #NationalMuseumofArtOsaka. The exhibition, which also includes work by artists #EllsworthKelly, #DaanVanGolden, and #JohnArmleder, among others, opens to the public this Saturday, May 25th. From the press release: “In recent years, there has been a resurgence of abstraction. Abstract art, which first emerged as an avant-garde style in the early 20th century, and American abstract art, which was championed by postwar art critics, served as important precedents and key movements in art history. Today, abstraction is once again a subject of interest in the West.” #Bortolami

#LenaHenke’s work “Lena Henke,” 2019, Plaster, pigment, has also been donated to the @white_columns Benefit Auction, taking place at 6:30pm on Wednesday, May 29th at 91 Horatio Street. Taken and adapted from Henke’s signature “Female Fatigue” Series, this is a sculpture of a laying figurine cast in solid pink plaster. Usually reclining on a steel New York-based building, this piece comes on its own. A souvenir, a single lady from the city, adaptable to be placed in your very own NYC apartment. The work is signed by the artist. Bold, calligraphic letters cover the women's skin, a kind of branding or recalling of 20th Century signatures, used by mostly male artist to “hashtag” their works. #WhiteColumns #Bortolami

#RobertBordo, “Skinny Jeans Study,” 2017, Oil and canvas on board, has been donated to the @white_columns Benefit Auction, taking place at 6:30pm on Wednesday, May 29th at 91 Horatio Street. About this work: Robert Bordo’s recent series of abstract/figurative “skinny jean” paintings, both present and reveal content in their surfaces and their substrates. A luminous under painting is glimpsed beneath the surface of these denim colored monochromes, the depicted bodies appear as glowing contours. The image is drawn by palette knife, a surface sketch presenting an unstable image that is both humorous and erotic (an ass being checked out) and deeply psychological (a skull having a Hamlet moment). About looking and being looked at simultaneously, Bordo’s “jean” paintings conjure desire and introspection. #WhiteColumns #Bortolami

From the press release: “Overton situates sculpture between depictions of a place or object and the object itself. A large elephant ear houseplant sits in front of a “blank canvas” stretched with a white projection screen, capturing its soft silhouette in the gallery’s changing daylight. The ingenuity of Overton’s gestures evokes the inescapable presence of nature in even the most post-industrial contexts.” #Bortolami
