PostSCRIPT: NOTIONS ON CONTEMPORARY CRAFT

University of Delaware Curatorial Fellow Exhibition

June 7 - July 28, 2019

OPENING RECEPTION:
Friday, June 7, 2019 | 5 - 9 PM during Art Loop

RELATED PROGRAMMING: 
The Art Cart featuring artists Melissa Joseph and Natalie Kuenzi
Sunday, June 9, 2019 | 12 - 5 PM

PostScript: Notions on Contemporary Craft explores what it means to be an artist and craftsperson in the contemporary art world. As the term "craft" continues to evolve, PostScript attempts to break down barriers built between fine arts and crafts, while giving a platform to four emerging female artists to write their postscript to the conclusion of their formal education. Using a common thread of process as a practice, and labor as a commodity, Victoria Ahmadizadeh, Marie Fornaro, Melissa Joseph, and Natalie Kuenzi present their unique takes on contemporary craft, while reintroducing themselves to a larger community.

Victoria Ahmadizadeh's mixed media work employs glass as an anchoring element to create visual manifestations of her poetry and texts. Exploiting the medium for its transformative qualities, as well as its relationship to alchemy, her process serves to redeem and digest her memories. Ahmadizadeh has studied at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA, and Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC, and received her MFA in Craft and Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2016.

Marie Fornaro's fiber-based work speaks to women's issues, while acknowledging established links between fiber arts and women's lived experiences. Through the construction and deconstruction of her work she confronts contradictions on what we deem sacred and the underlying references to violence inherent to the act of sewing. Fornaro recently received her MFA in Craft, and Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University, and studied extensively at the Penland School of Crafts.

Melissa Joseph's mixed media sculptures and collages play with ideas of memory and legacy, while grounding themselves in materiality. Using textiles printed with Joseph's photographs paired with found objects, her subtle gestures of folding and wrapping obscure both images and objects as she sifts through her memories. Joseph received her MFA from Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in 2018, and in 2019 was selected for inclusion in New American Paintings.

Natalie Kuenzi's large-scale textiles, produced from plastic shopping bags, explore the use of high and low art materials, while creating spaces for wonder and joy. Through material and scale her work attempts to dismantle long-standing views of craft traditions and their intersection with fine arts. Kuenzi received her MFA from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 2017 where she now works as a studio technician and adjunct instructor.

- This exhibition is curated by Kate Testa, University of Delaware Curatorial Fellow.

The Nothing Series and Pooka up close

University of Delaware MFA Solo Exhibition by Benjamin Lee Sperry

June 7 - 30, 2019

OPENING RECEPTION:
Friday, June 7, 2019 | 5 - 9 PM during Art Loop

ARTIST’S RECEPTION: 
Wednesday, June 19, 2019
5 - 7 PM
Artist talk at 6:00 PM

In a joint venture with the University of Delaware, The Delaware Contemporary presents The Nothing Series and Pooka up close, a solo show of works by Benjamin Lee Sperry. Reflecting on a childhood memory of getting his first camera, Sperry recalls, "I spent the rest of the evening photographing the floor. People kept saying things like 'Ben don't waste your film.' That notion didn't quite make sense to me. Why did they all assume that photographing the floor was so certainly a waste?" 

This idea has followed Sperry throughout his life as he still employs a similar stream-of-consciousness method in his photography. Using his photographs of "nothing" as a starting point, Sperry translates the images using a CMYK screen printing process. He aims to give them potential to be "something" through their juxtaposition with his paintings and drawings. The resulting diptychs made through this unique working structure explore concepts of post-visualization versus a pre-visualization and how these notions affect the intentions of his creations, summoning the viewer to "up-close" inspection.  

Benjamin Lee Sperry is a mixed media artist working primarily in printmaking, painting, and photography. He received his MFA from The University of Delaware in May of 2019 and a BFA in Visual and Critical Studies from the School of Visual Arts in 2016. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and most recently was included in the group show Roadside Picnic at Heit Gallery in Berlin, Germany.

- This exhibition is coordinated by Kate Testa, University of Delaware Curatorial Fellow.

TRASH TALK: HISTORY IN ASSEMBLAGE

TRASH TALK: HISTORY IN ASSEMBLAGE
Jim Condron

June 7 to November 10, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, June 7, 2019
5 - 9 PM during Art Loop

Trash Talk: History in Assemblage, explores the ephemeral and oftentimes overlooked materials of life that one chooses to give significance to and collect. Working in the modern mode of assemblage inspired by twentieth-century artists such as John Chamberlain, Pablo Picasso, and Marcel Duchamp, Baltimore artist Jim Condron follows the tradition of using found and unconventional materials.

Over 40 sculptures and mixed media work incorporate traditional materials like paint, metal, and wood with repurposed animal fur, foam, and trash. These combined materials prompt feelings of nostalgia, remorse, and repression simultaneously with ideas of chance, revival, and vitality.

Applying titles the same way he assembles materials, Condron ascribes each piece with a textual fragment from a story that adds to the works' rhetoric, rather than naming or defining it. They contain phrases from literature that resonate with the artist, appropriated from an array of great authors such as Don DeLillo, James Salter, Anton Chekhov, Nikolai Gogol, Oscar Wilde, Hunter Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, Ernest Hemmingway, Henry Miller, and Anais Nin.

Works such as, She started a new job for which she was radically overqualified and underpaid give viewers a better sense of Condron's humor, operating in tandem with the intimacy of personal memory. Lite Brite pegs, relics of the mid-twentieth century, are resurrected to be in conversation with organic materials like wool and felt. Condron rescues otherwise abandoned objects and materials and imbues them with purpose. In this process of "reincarnation", Condron breathes new life into his salvaged objects and transforms the irreverent and irreclaimable into the ineffable. His paintings are richly layered and teeming with vibrant swathes of color. They evoke a certain feeling of pride in the visual attempt to capture the fleetingness of creative mania.

Jim Condron is a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2017 and earned his MFA at the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art. He holds a BA in Art and English from Colby College. In addition, he has studied at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture. He has exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally and his works are held in corporate, university, public, and private collections around the world. He currently serves on the faculty at Loyola University.

Unity by Design: Midcentury Modernism at Winterthur

Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

Jun
07
Fri
GET TICKETS
Museum Exhibitions, Visual Arts

Now through July 28, 2019

Winterthur has a secret. Scattered throughout the various offices, storage rooms, and libraries of our extensive campus is a midcentury modern furniture collection. Represented in this group of furnishings is an incredible spectrum of Knoll and Herman Miller objects purchased as early as 1957. Unity by Design explores the perceived juxtaposition of midcentury modernism at an institution rooted in traditional Americana. This lived collection of approximately 150 objects provides an exciting opportunity to both evaluate how American design operates in a cross-generational context and explore how midcentury modernism was and is experienced.

Visitors will be wrapped up in a midcentury modern interior as they explore the evolution of this distinctly American design movement. They will have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at the construction of midcentury modern furniture to better understand how industrialization and technical innovation influenced the design of these objects. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Winterthur’s first gallery exhibit on midcentury modern furniture! Exhibit is in the Society of Winterthur Fellows Gallery. Included with admission. Members free.
