2023 Han-Mee Artists Association of Greater Washington, DC Annual Exhibition

Asian Arts Gallery, Center for the Arts, Towson University 1 Fine Arts Drive, Towson, MD 21204

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11am- 4pm

Balancing each other’s differences and achieving synergy is important in both creative arts and our daily lives. However, attaining and sustaining a balanced life is difficult in a constantly changing world which requires us to constantly adapt to new conflicts, concerns, and environments. In particular, the unexpected COVID-19 global pandemic made worries about reality and an uncertain future a regular part of our daily lives and thoughts. Just like finding our direction amid a foggy reality, creative activities are like taking a long journey toward an unknown destination. Each of the works presented in this exhibition shows unique and inventive approaches to realizing balance and synergy.

Still from Cannupa Hanska Luger’s film Future Ancestral Technologies: New Myth, 2021

Critical Indigenous Cinema
Thursday, June 15 :: 6pm
@ Academy Art Museum

Join us for a program of short experimental films by contemporary Indigenous producers who use cinema to provide counter-images to settler narratives in visually and conceptually daring ways. Curated by Dr. Ryan Conrath.

Schedule

Hopiit (Victor Masayesva [Hopi], Jr., 1982, 14 min.): Masayevsa’s poetic film interweaves Hopi ceremonial rites with the rituals of everyday life in a non-linear narrative that conveys the richness of his culture and oral storytelling traditions.Future Ancestral Technologies: New Myth (Cannupa Hanska Luger [Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota], 2021, 6 min.) and Future Ancestral Technologies: We Live (Cannupa Hanska Luger, 2019, 3 min.): These films are part of a body of work by Hanksa Luger that personifies the effects of societal ills, such as greed and racism, as corporeal monsters. Through depicting the successful slaying of these monsters by the very people they have long oppressed, Luger creates a new mythology—one of agency.

Mobilize (Caroline Monnet [Anishinaabe, French], 2015, 3.5 min.): Composed entirely of footage of First Nations people from the National Film Board of Canada archives, this film celebrates the intelligence and technical skill necessary to live off the land, with the pace and energy of a music video.
The Violence of a Civilization Without Secrets (New Red Order – Adam Khalil [Ojibway], Zack Khalil [Ojibway] & Jackson Polys [Tlingit], 2018, 10 min.): Through the case of the prehistoric Paleo-American “Kennewick Man” man, this film critiques the inhumane practices involved in the study of people and cultures and the creation of ethnographic archives and museum collections.
Impresiones para una máquina de luz y sonido (Impressions for a Light and Sound Machine, Colectivo Los Ingrávidos, 2014, 7 min.): In this powerful film, a woman recounts stories of injustice her people have suffered over found footage from an old Mexican film. As if to bear the brunt of the physical violence to which she refers, as she talks, the celluloid itself is destroyed, stabbed until it disappears.

Reclamation (TJ Cuthand [Cree, Scot], 2018, 13 min.): Cuthand explores a dystopian future in which the last Indigenous people on Earth attempt to salvage the planet destroyed by White people who escape to Mars.

 

 

Alex Posen in studio

POSEN x POSEN x POSEN | Reception
Thursday, June 15 :: 6pm
@ The Peale

POSEN x POSEN x POSEN brings together the artistic endeavors of the Posen family—Stephen Posen, Alexandra Posen, and Zac Posen—and explores the remarkable contributions they have made to the realms of art and fashion. Stephen Posen, as an abstract painter, channels his creativity onto canvas, while Alexandra Posen expresses her artistic vision through sculptural forms. Zac Posen, on the other hand, has left an indelible mark on the fashion industry with his distinctive designs.

In contrast, let’s look back to the Peale family, whose artistic legacy spans the colonial and early national periods of the United States. Charles Willson Peale, renowned as a portrait painter, also established the very first major museum in the country, aptly named now, The Peale. The artistic pursuits of his sons—Raphaelle, Rembrandt, and Titian Peale—focused on still-life paintings, portraiture, and natural history illustrations.

While the artistic careers of the Posen and Peale families differ in terms of medium and historical context, it is undeniable that both families have left an indelible mark on the art world. This exhibition seeks to draw parallels and explore the connections between these two remarkable families, celebrating their diverse artistic achievements and their lasting impact on the artistic and cultural fabric of their respective eras. —Jeffrey Kent, Exhibition Curator

I think that now that art and creativity have become commodities, it is almost impossible for the individual creator to alter the forces of the culture. Because there are so many great creative people, so many voices, it becomes something of a group concept and the individual is somehow of less significance.

-Stephen Posen

AKEA BRIONNE : Janus | Opening Reception
Saturday, June 17 :: 6-8pm | Ongoing through July 31
@ Critical Path Method

CPM Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition of new works by Akea Brionne, entitled Janus. This is the artist’s first solo show with the gallery.
In Roman mythology, Janus was the god of doors, gates, and transitions and is often depicted with two faces—one looking towards the past and one towards the future. The works in this show cull motifs from western art history while using artificial intelligence technology to blur the lines between painting, photography, tapestry, and low relief sculpture.

The long wall of the gallery will display a group of five 60 x 48 inch self-portraits. To create these portraits, Brionne takes photographs of herself and distorts them by supplying text prompts to an AI algorithm of her design, searching for the “right words” to describe herself as a person, an Afro-Creole woman, and an artist in the world. The AI’s mutations warp the figures and environments so greatly that each painting looks like a different person. Collectively, the self-portraits problematize the intelligibility of racial categories, the integrity of the body, and the boundary between figure and ground. Brionne has the resulting images digitally woven on jacquard tapestry, then she stretches them around canvas and adorns them with mixed media, yarn, and multi-colored crystals that shimmer as the viewer moves around the work.

The front room will display a grid of six 33 x 29 inch flower works, also created using printed and hand-jeweled jacquard. Brionne presents the flowers flatly on blank backgrounds and lines them with faux black fur. These pieces serve as a symbolic counterpoint to the more naturalistic depictions of plants in the backgrounds of her self-portraits. These works pose the potency of flowers in medicine and mind-altering hallucinogenic experiences against AI’s distortions of reality and personhood.

The back room of the gallery will display a rotating mobile that references Matisse’s seminal work The Dance, 1910. In Brionne’s piece, created over a century after the original, she has replaced Matisse’s figures with life-size representations of her own body, printed on jacquard fabric, hand-jeweled, and stuffed with poly-fil, a material used to pad dolls. This installation is located two blocks from the Marlborough apartments—now federally-subsidized senior living, once the home of the Cohn collection and dozens of Matisse paintings.

There will be two “Patchwork” pieces, each 48 x 51 inches, comprised of two adjoined panels. These abstract works embed glimpses of printed jacquard images taken from Brionne’s family archives into a field of quilted, multi-colored, and multi-textured fabrics.

In this exhibition, Brionne probes how AI technology can be used to mine, navigate, construct, and reconstruct identity using a visual repository of the past. The works explore what AI can do and expose what it cannot do, seeking in its “unhuman-ness” the possibility of a new, more human concept of identity.

The Barbara Dale Retrospective Exhibition | Reception
Sunday, June 17 :: 1-4pm
@ The Peale

Stepping into Baltimore-based cartoonist Barbara Dale’s studio, Peale chief curator Jeffrey Kent was truly awed by the experience as he witnessed Barbara’s effortless utilization of various mediums in her creative practice, including pastel chalk, lithographs, ceramics, paint, pencil, ink, etc., etc., etc..

Barbara Dale’s artistic journey began with a modest inheritance of $500 from her grandfather. With this seed money, she ventured into the world of printing and created Dale Cards in 1979—a line of alternative greeting cards known for their wit and edginess.

Dale firmly holds the belief that commercial art is just as valuable as fine art, considering both to be equally significant creative practices without a clear distinction between them. In this exhibition, you will encounter ten thought-provoking themes, each approached in a unique manner that is sure to ignite meaningful conversations and provoke laughter. With her unparalleled perspective, Barbara explores a wide range of topics, including women’s issues, the fragility of life and the life cycle, food and sex, commentary on art itself, character-driven narratives and relationships, self-portraits, the juxtaposition of objects, political and social justice commentary, the exploration of reality versus illusion, and the similarities between commercial and fine art.

***It is important to note that this exhibition contains explicit material, including nudity, explicit sexual content, and strong language. We have made a deliberate choice not to censor any of these elements throughout the exhibition. As a result, we kindly request that you proceed with caution, especially if you have children accompanying you. We hope you thoroughly enjoy the show.

LOGICS OF SCULPTURE | A Gallery Conversation with Kristen Hileman
Saturday, June 17 :: 2pm
@ C. Grimaldis Gallery

In conjunction with our current exhibition of contemporary sculpture, this conversation will focus on formal approaches to sculpture over the last several decades, looking closely at how artists of different generations and backgrounds have made distinct choices to resolve material into form. These formal decisions reflect highly intentional ways of thinking about sculpture, which can be contextualized within art history and criticism.

Please join us together with curator and scholar, Kristen Hileman, at the gallery for an in-person conversation on Saturday, June 17th. A Sculpture Show featuring Anthony Caro, Jon Isherwood, Jae Ko, Jane Manus, and John Ruppert will be on view through Saturday, July 8th.

Kristen Hileman is an Independent Curator and museum leader who works to realize inspiring and relevant projects by artists at all stages of their careers who address the contemporary human condition. As a graduate of American University and the University of Maryland College Park, Hileman has remained a pillar in the Baltimore/Washington Arts Community.

Hileman first launched her curatorial career as an Assistant Curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, D.C.) in 2001, and was later appointed Associate Curator in 2007. During her time at the Hirshhorn, she oversaw two curated permanent installations: “Ways of Seeing: John Baldessari Explores the Collection” and “Strange Bodies: Figurative Works”. Hileman served as Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Baltimore Museum of Art (Baltimore, MD) from 2009 through 2019.

Exhibitions of note include Andy Warhol: The Last Decade (October 17, 2010 – January 9, 2011), Seeing Now: Photography 1960 – Today (February 20 – May 15, 2011), Candida Höfer: Interior Worlds (November 16, 2011- February 26, 2012), Mary Reid Kelley and Patrick Kelley: We Are Ghosts (April 4 – July 15, 2018), Maren Hassinger: The Spirit of Things (July 18 – November 25, 2018), Meleko Mokgosi: Acts of Resistance (May 2 – November 11, 2018), Lizzie Fitch / Ryan Trecartin (October 7, 2018 – January 8, 2019), and most recently her successful John Waters retrospective, currently on view at the Wexner Center for the Arts.

Special installations of note include Sarah Oppenheimer: Architectural Intervention (November 2012 – ongoing), Oliver Herring: Areas for Action (October 23, 2016 – October 29, 2017), Tomás Saraceno: Entangled Orbits(October 1, 2017 – February 24, 2019), and Spencer Finch: Moon Dust (February 21, 2018 – February 2025). Kristen oversaw the reinstallation of the Contemporary Wing in November 2012. She led efforts to conserve Bruce Nauman’s Violins Violence Silence in 2014, which was made possible through the generous support of the Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art and additional BMA individual donors.

Frederick County Gateways – Request for Qualifications
deadline June 30
posted by Frederick Arts Council

Frederick Arts Council seeks qualifications from artists or artist teams to design coordinating large-scale artworks that will activate two of Frederick County, MD’s “gateway” locations. These gateways are pre-identified locations in Middletown and Walkersville, MD that serve as entrances to these Frederick County communities. The intent behind these artworks is to unify Frederick County’s individual localities and provide a sense of cohesion, with the artworks adhering to a common theme. The maximum size of the gateway artworks should be approximately 15′ in height with an 8′ x 8′ base.

Project Description: The gateway artworks should be fairly large in size and visible to motorists as they are driving into each town (each gateway is located along a roadway). The artworks are intended for permanence and therefore should be able to withstand outdoor elements; each of the eventual artworks should be closely related to one another within an overall theme and should clearly reference this theme.

Selected artists will be invited to submit artwork designs for each of the following gateway locations: • Middletown, MD • Walkersville, MD

Qualifications: At this stage, we are requesting that interested applicants submit their CV, a letter of interest, examples of their past projects, and a link to their website or other portfolio platform.

Budget: The total budget for each artwork is not to exceed $100,000.

Eligibility: This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is open to professional artists or teams with experience in the design, fabrication, and installation of public art. Artists must have experience in producing a minimum of two permanent, exterior public artworks similar in scale and complexity to this project.

The artist must demonstrate: a) a history of professional activity and achievement as an artist; b) experience managing a project of this complexity including technical competence with fabrication and installation procedures; and c) the ability to procure and direct the work of subcontractors/consultants.
