BEND/BREATHE -Giulia Piera Livi

BEND/BREATHE
Giulia Piera Livi

January 16 - April 25, 2021

OPENING EVENT:
Friday, February 5, 2021 | 5 - 8 PM during first Friday

As part of our Hennessy Experiment Series, Giulia Piera Livi investigates interior design, the curated home space, and the visual and tactile accessibility to objects of art. Livi’s immersive experiences explore visual encounters that dissect the material clutter of desire and consumerism. Does too much warp a sense of aesthetic? Does too little inject a sense of completeness?

Referencing specific furnishings from memory, color and forms allude to multi-functional art objects, while shapes elbow through the space ventilating areas of visual rest. Bend/Breathe looks at our relationship to objects of art, the information, the inspiration generated by them, and their ability to revitalize or circumvent desire. The exhibition questions the role of the artist in a society with an aspiration to be modern. It questions how paintings can be multi-functional to highlight the absurdity of convenience. It asks what is the existential role of objects of decoration that the viewer uses to ascribe purpose? How does desire and consumerism bend or deflect an object’s purity?

Mounted in ways to distort a sense of space, the objects occupy a formal limbo unified in materiality with varying form, color, and construction, expressive but not bound by the constraints of tradition. As such, objects become paintings that challenge the viewer to question reality.

Livi received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Baltimore, MD. She currently serves as Adjunct Professor of Art at MICA and Associate Director for C. Grimaldis Gallery in Baltimore, MD. Livi is the recipient of several fellowships and awards notably, Sondheim Semi-Finalist, Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts; Meyerhoff You+ Graduate Fellowship, Baltimore, MD; Ranchos Nativas Art & Experience Residency, Vega Alta, Puerto Rico; Vermont Studio Center, Residency Fellowship, Johnson, VT; Trawick Young Artist Prize, Bethesda Contemporary Art Awards, Bethesda, MD; and others.

RIDEM
Gene Hracho

January 16 - May 23, 2021

Opening Reception:
Friday, February 5 | 5 - 8 PM

At first glance, Ridem by Gene Hracho presents itself as a scale replica of a military helicopter, carefully clad in metal and outfitted with munitions. Upon closer inspection, the viewer sees a clever assemblage of metal parts, gauges, fixtures and fasteners - all replacements for real aircraft features. The artist delights in these ingenious substitutions.

The material of Ridem bares a patina of time. The pieces and parts reveal time spent in the studio of a collector, waiting their turn to become art. Hracho describes his work as a combination of the aesthetic vision of a precocious youth and the working-class environment in which he learned to fashion objects.

Underlaying the playful gadgetry and meticulous craft is something much more complex. A seat in the open cockpit invites the viewer to imagine themselves in the aircraft. Here, the sculpture prompts questions about the machinery of violence, and its production, operation, and control. Where do we sit?

ROUND ABOUT: RECONSIDERING THE OBJECT IN SPACE

ROUND ABOUT: RECONSIDERING THE OBJECT IN SPACE
Group Exhibition

January 16 - April 25, 2021

 

OPENING EVENT:
Friday, February 5, 2021 | 5 - 8 PM

SPECIAL PROGRAMMING:
Friday, April 2, 2021 | 5 - 8 PM

Jazz duo E. Shawn Qaissaunee and Andy Mohler will play improvised pieces inspired by works of the ROUND ABOUT artists.

- 5 PM | Jazz improvisations inspired by Monroe Isenberg
- 6 PM | Jazz improvisations inspired by Hanna Vogel
- 7 PM | Jazz improvisations inspired by Michael Benevenia

Featuring the work of Philadelphia-based artists Hanna Vogel, Monroe Isenberg and Mike Benevenia, Round About: Reconsidering the Object in Space presents perceptions and layers of experience that inform and expand our notions of sculpture. Employing different and non-traditional approaches, these three multi-media artists guide viewers to deepen their personal connection as well as emotional and intellectual associations with the media.

For centuries, artists have relentlessly pushed against traditional values of making and presenting objects, asking themselves and the viewer to reconsider expectations of volume and mass, the interplay between hollows and protrusions, and the balance of planes and contours. Vogel, Isenberg and Benevenia share a collective interest in organic materials that draw attention to the artworks’ physical attributes and engage the audience in reflection on our relationship to the natural and built world.

Hanna Vogel’s choice of porcelain articulates the physical fragility of the built environment to the same degree that Monroe Isenberg’s uprooted tree and its humbling scale beckons a reciprocity. Michael Benevenia’s anthropologically intended interest in discarded treasures questions nostalgia versus value. Each artwork is concerned with the conditions in which art and meaning are made and circulated, turning them to their own advantage, or sometimes ignoring or disrupting them.

VESSEL INVITATIONAL: REVISIONING THE RECEPTACLE

VESSEL INVITATIONAL: REVISIONING THE RECEPTACLE
Group exhibition

January 16 - May 23, 2021

 

OPENING EVENT:
Friday, February 5 | 5 - 8 PM

Throughout civilization, artists have created containers for functional, ceremonial, and decorative purposes. Today, artists are revisioning the ubiquitous home accessory that has perpetually held sophisticated visual appeal into bold, new conceptual statements and technical innovations. From objet d’art to curio, the twenty-four artists represented in this exhibition reexamine the purpose, shape, illusion, and allusion of “the vessel”. 

Addressing the contemporary receptacle as object, subject, and concept, VESSEL INVITATIONAL: REVISIONING THE RECEPTACLE examines the ancient and beguiling history of the receptacle with its shifts in contours and allure. Boundaries of this traditional craft are explored through form and function as visual tension, persuasion, and contradictions are created. This exhibition redefines purpose as it asks, is it carried? Is it shelter? Is it permanent or ephemeral? Is the vessel an embodiment of something or someone? Does the object display, imply, or contain space?

VESSEL INVITATIONAL: REVISIONING THE RECEPTACLE presents works of art that emerge from a shared interest in exploring traditional exchange between the collector and the object, to push new frontiers through a delightful diversity of processes, contexts, materials, and aesthetic quality. The artists selected for this exhibition exemplify observation, aesthetic process, and the search for transcendence, as they reveal literal or functional translations. All expand the idea of the vessel beyond traditional contours to generate new perspectives that accentuate subtle or obvious alterations. In this exhibition purpose is blurred, melded, and re-envisioned to breathe new life into the ancient art form. United by divergent styles and superbly crafted specimens, the works stand in deep conversation with one another while embodying the essential components of transcendence.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS:
Sandra Bowden, Thomas Campbell, Wendell Castle, Loraine Cooley, Michal Fargo, Ruth Geos, Ben Gillespie, Julie & Ken Girardini, Johnathan Hopp, Doug Johnston, Nancy Jurs, Marianne Lettieri, Lauren Mabry, Jennifer McCurdy, Stephen Merritt, Debora Muhl, Ashley Murphy, Irmari Nacht, Ola Rondiak, Mari Skarp-Bogli, Sara Thompson, Allen C. Topolski, and Nancy Topolski.

Jasmine’s work focuses on the personal as universal and the intersecting relationships between Blackness, womanhood, girlhood, mental illness, love, and home. She is the author of two poetry chapbooks, Universal Themes (2014) and This Drowning Was A Baptism (2019).
