Opening Reception | Basil Kincaid: River, Frog and Crescent Moon


Celebrating improvisation, freedom of imagination, and a continuous process of self-discovery through making, St. Louis, and Accra-based Basil Kincaid is a post-disciplinary artist known for textile compositions that mine what he calls a “spiritual inheritance.” The exhibition features a series of recent quilted, embroidered, and sculpted works. Kincaid’s pieces are often made from “emotionally charged materials,” including the cast-off clothes of loved ones, and involve a time-intensive collage technique that channels the inheritance of a multi-generational familial practice of quilting.

Opening Reception | Dan Colen: Lover, Lover, Lover


An exhibition of new paintings by Dan Colen. Borrowing its title from a song written by Leonard Cohen on a visit to his ancestral homeland of Israel during the Yom Kippur War, Lover, Lover, Lover employs the aesthetics of Disney animation to reflect on the many “lovers”—god, birthplace, friend, father, mother, spouse, and child—that we have, lose, and move between. Colen, who is also Jewish, relocated briefly with his family to Israel when he was five years old, an experience that shaped his idea of home in all its charged complexity. Lover, Lover, Lover, which was conceived of during another pivotal moment in the artist’s life, explores this perception in concert with ideas of tradition, influence, and the always-fraught American dream.

Opening Reception | Lisa Oppenheim: Spolia


Spolia, the Latin word for “spoils,” refers to architectural fragments taken out of their original contexts and reused elsewhere. There is a violence connoted by the word, of plundering and pillaging during wartime, but also something potentially generative: the same spoils used as the literal building blocks to create new structures. In this exhibition, Oppenheim uses the Nazis’ own documentation of their looting as the building blocks for all the works. She does not attempt to recreate or recuperate what was lost, but rather makes new artworks out of the images and fragments of information that remain.

Opening Reception | Masamitsu Shigeta: Dancing Plants


Masamitsu Shigeta presents a series of paintings dedicated to the urban plantlife of Los Angeles, and more specifically, relating these new paintings to music. For the past several years, Shigeta has devoted his practice to the city flora of New York City, which was presented in Los Angeles at Tyler Park Presents this past Spring. Visiting California for the first time left a deep impression. Similar to how a field recorder collects sounds out in the world, Shigeta captured the distinctive silhouettes of palm tree-lined blocks, discordant garbage bins filled with cacti, and passion flowers blooming like radio waves. Shigeta’s paintings record the ambient noises and complex frequencies of his immediate surroundings, allowing them to be replayed in new locations.

A solo show of lens-based work by the New York-based artist Matthew Placek. This selection of photographs from his archive and the first public presentation of Placek’s ongoing eponymous video work on view at Anthology Film Archives. Conceived to be experienced in tandem, the multi-site exhibition continues Placek’s ongoing exploration of memory as well his commitment to capturing presence, in particular the places and people in his community and the relationships between them across time. Balloons Umbrellas & Snow is, at its foundation, a web-based system that relays a selection of images from Placek’s archive of 20,000+ images through an intelligent and poetic algorithm of his own design.

Opening Reception | Singing in Unison: Group Show


Singing in Unison is inspired by an underlying philosophy that runs through American history and advocates for “the art of joining” as a social and cultural process that can mediate the disequilibrium within American politics and culture. The exhibition brings together works by artists who were formally trained, alongside works by others who were self-taught. In what is on-view, themes of gender, ethnicity, and the limits of knowledge are prominently featured.

Book Discussion | Time Shelter: What Happens When The Past and Present Collide, Award-winning Bulgarian Writer Talks About His Novel


The award-winning Bulgarian writer Georgi Gospodinov discusses his novel about memory loss, time, and what happens when the past and present collide. He will discuss the novel with scholar and writer Valentina Izmirlieva. In Zurich, a man named Gaustine has opened the first "clinic for the past," an institution that offers a unique treatment for Alzheimer's sufferers: each floor reproduces a past decade in minute detail, allowing patients to transport themselves back in time to unlock what is left of their fading memories. Gaustine's assistant collects items and ephemera from the past - buttons from the 1940s, nostalgic scents - to make each floor more real. But as the charade becomes more convincing, healthy people seek out the clinic to escape their present-day lives, resulting in an unexpected conundrum: the past begins to invade the present. In Time Shelter, Georgi Gospodinov has written an eerily prescient novel, shadowing the tragedies of the last century and teeming with ideas for our current one.

Book Discussion | Proving Ground: The Untold Story of the Six Women Who Programmed the World's First Modern Computer


After the end of World War II, top-secret research continued across the United States as engineers and programmers rushed to complete their confidential assignments. Among them were six pioneering women, tasked with figuring out how to program the world's first general-purpose, programmable, all-electronic computer, even though there was no instruction codes or programming languages in existence. But their story, never told to the reporters and scientists who thronged the huge computer after it became public, was lost. Author, documentarian, and professor of law Kathy Kleiman hosts a screening of her award-winning documentary, "The Computers: The Remarkable Story of the ENIAC Programmers", and a discussion of her related new book that brings these women back to life, and back into the historical record. For more than two decades, Kleiman met with four of the original six ENIAC Programmers, pored over documentation and images, and recorded extensive oral histories with the women about their work. As the tech world continues to struggle with gender imbalance and its far-reaching consequences, the story of the ENIAC Programmers' groundbreaking work is more urgently necessary than ever before.

Gallery Talk | A Conversation on Artist Louise Nevelson


To mark the final days of the exhibition Louise Nevelson: Persistence at the historic Procuratie Vecchie in Venice’s Piazza San Marco, which closes on September 11th, this is a conversation between exhibition curator Julia Bryan-Wilson and Cecilia Alemani, Curator of the 59th Biennale di Venezia. An official Collateral Event of La Biennale, Persistence celebrates the 60th anniversary of Nevelson’s representation of the United States in the American Pavilion. It also coincides with the inclusion of the artist’s monumental 1968 sculpture, Homage to the Universe, in the Arsenale portion of Alemani’s main exhibition for La Biennale. In this talk, Alemani and Bryan-Wilson will discuss Nevelson’s inclusion in both exhibitions, and the broader significance of the artist’s work today. A pioneer of installation and environmental sculpture, Nevelson remains one of the key figures of twentieth-century American abstraction and has been represented by Pace Gallery since 1962. The program will be moderated by Oliver Shultz, Curatorial Director at Pace.
