A Conversation with Raphael Rubinstein and Sharon Butler

On Saturday, October 8, at 2 pm, please join a BAAHNG SPOTLIGHT with noted poet and art critic Raphael Rubinstein and painter Sharon Butler to discuss “Next Moves,” currently on view at Jennifer Baahng Gallery. They will explore conjunctions, addenda, commutations – in short, the many ways artists navigate the passages from one body of work to the next. 

NOTE: Seating is limited. 

Raphael Rubinstein is Professor of Critical Studies at the University of Houston School of Art. He is currently working on a forthcoming book, Negative Work: The Turn to Provisionality in Contemporary Art (Bloomsbury Academic) and co-curating “Schema: World as Diagram,” scheduled to open in New York, May 2023.

Brooklyn Museum is showcasing MOTIVE, a film by Michael McClard

Brooklyn Museum is showcasing MOTIVE, a film by Michael McClard

Michael McClard’s film, MOTIVE, is included in the Jimmy DeSana: Submission exhibition at Brooklyn Museum in New York, from November 11, 2022 to April 16, 2023.

As part of punk aesthetics and its symbolic forms of resistance, Jimmy DeSana and his peers sought to forge art communities outside of official institutions. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, DeSana was heavily involved in New York’s punk and No Wave scenes and photographed prominent creatives for album covers and alternative publications. The
Jimmy DeSana: Submission exhibition at Brooklyn Museum will be the first to feature DeSana’s portraits of art and music luminaries such as Kathy Acker, Laurie Anderson, Kenneth Anger, Patti Astor, David Byrne, John Giorno, Debbie Harry, and Richard Hell. The Jimmy DeSana: Submission exhibition will also be showcasing MOTIVE, a film starring Jimmy DeSana, and made by Michael McClard.

Hyewon Yi Interviews Jaye Moon

“On April 29, 2022, I had the pleasure of interviewing the Korean-born New York artist Jaye Moon, whose second solo exhibition at Jennifer Baahng Gallery in New York had just closed. Moon is known primarily for her portable architectural sculptures and works made of Lego. Wings of Desire featured her recent body of conceptual work that utilizes a numerical system and the colors of Legos within the binary logic of Braille. Also exhibiting were some older works that have rarely been shown. This interview covers Moon’s career trajectory from her days as an art student in Korea to her most recent practice focusing on visual communication with particular references to film. Jaye Moon (b. 1963, Seoul, Korea) currently works in Brooklyn, New York, and is represented by Jennifer Baahng Gallery……”

Eric Brown’s solo exhibition at ARTS CENTER at DUCK CREEK

The Particulars of Rapture

July 23 - August 28, 2022

Reception: July 23, 3-5 pm

ARTS CENTER at DUCK CREEK

…”When the pandemic hit in March of 2020, Brown stayed at his family’s house in Amagansett and continued to work on the series, and the paintings became a visual diary. “They provided me with a meditative practice during the worst months of the pandemic” he recalled. “Made up of delicate, repeated lines, the paintings suggest woven textiles, yet they are not facsimiles of a woven fabric—they do not rely on trompe l’oeil, shadows, or a constructed illusion of space. I don’t intend to make believable paintings of textiles. Instead, the marks of paint become the textile. The textiles are “woven” with oil paint. As paintings, they are straightforward, direct, and deliberately plain and unadorned. They rely on the imperfect calligraphy of my hand. The lines’ precariousness suggests a kind of fragility mitigated by interdependence.”…

Whitehot Magazine of Contemporary Art, Jaye Moon Soars On Wings of Desire by Paul Laster | April 27, 2022

Jaye Moon Soars On Wings of Desire

by Paul Laster | April 27, 2022

“What do braille, a tactile writing system used by people who are visually impaired, and Lego, a line of plastic construction toys, have in common?  Most people would think nothing, but in the hands and mind of an artist, anything is possible.  Over a period of time the artist Jaye Moon discovered a link and for the last ten years has been making art that merges these two disparate things.”

Janet Taylor Pickett’s Hagar’s Dress on view at Telfair Museums

telfair museums
Janet Taylor Pickett’s Hagar’s Dress, 2007, is on view at the Contemporary Spotlight: New Acquisitions from the Brandywine Workshop exhibition at the Telfair Museums from February 4 – May 1, 2022.
The exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate Telfair Museums‘ recently acquired lithographs by Black artists.  This acquisition moves the museum forward in its long-term goal of diversifying the collection and highlighting the works of underrepresented artists and narratives.  Other than two works by noted Georgia-born painter Benny Andrews, these compelling works on paper were created by significant female artists – Faith Ringgold, Deborah Willis, Emma Amos, Selma Burke, Sonya Clark, Gwendolyn Knight, Samella Lewis, Janet Taylor Pickett, Howardena Pindell, Alison Saar, Betye Saar, and Lorna Williams.  Created in the late 20th century and 21st century, these works cover a wide range of timely themes, including the legacies of slavery and racism in the United States, spirituality, education, womanhood, and nature.  They also effectively illustrate the visual, social, and political scopes of the powerfully versatile medium of printmaking.
