Ed Ruscha: Ribbon Words Catalogue

Now available for purchase through the gallery
May 18, 2016

Focusing on Ed Ruscha’s ribbon word works begun in 1966, Ed Ruscha: Ribbon Words, is the first major exhibition and publication devoted exclusively to this important part of the artist’s influential oeuvre. Published to accompany the exhibition currently at the gallery, this richly illustrated catalogue features reproductions of more than 50 masterpieces, along with a comprehensive essay by the show’s curator Dieter Buchhart, as well as contributions by Glenn O’Brien and Alexandra Schwartz.

The exhibition catalogue highlights the works’ wide array of subtle color and nuanced drawing technique demonstrating how Ruscha’s paper ribbons became three-dimensional, illusionistic objects. Developing from the lines of cursive handwriting, the artist found a way to transform line into the appearance of three-dimensional forms. His imaginary ribbon word objects provoke multiple cultural meanings as they suggest sculptures modelled by light. Ruscha’s breathtaking work, using an inimitable trompe l’oeil technique, with the application of gunpowder, constitutes a major contribution to the history of art in the 20th century.

Curator and author Dieter Buchhart is an expert in modern and contemporary art. He has curated numerous major exhibitions of works by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Georges Braque, and Edvard Munch, at institutions including the Guggenheim Bilbao, the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the Brooklyn Museum, the Fondation Beyeler, Basel, the Albertina, Vienna, and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

Glenn O’Brien is a writer and editor, focusing on contemporary art and culture. He has written numerous monographs and essays on artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Christopher Wool.

Alexandra Schwartz is the author of Ed Ruscha’s Los Angeles (2010) and editor of Ed Ruscha: Leave Any Information at the Signal (2004). She is the winner of the National Book Critics Circle’s Nona Balakian Citation for Excellence in Reviewing for 2014.

Joan Mitchell: At the Harbor and in the Grande Vallée

Extended through January 8, 2016
October 29 - December 18, 2015
We are pleased to announce our upcoming exhibition, Joan Mitchell: At the Harbor and in the Grande Vallée, curated by Dr. Jeffrey Grove. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 29th from 6 to 8pm. Please download press release PDF below.

The exhibition will juxtapose the two most important bodies of work by Joan Mitchell and feature rarely seen paintings from private collections. Focusing on works Mitchell produced at two critical junctures in her life, the show will direct a lens for the first time on the years surrounding 1957 when the young Mitchell first consolidated her formal language of abstract painting and received her first important critical successes, and 1983, a time twenty-six years later when Mitchell, now an internationally recognized artist, began her epic suite of emotionally infused paintings, La Grande Vallée.

"Famous Artists Eating Candy at the Brooklyn Artists Ball" featuring iROZEALb

Artnet News Patrick McMullin
April 19, 2014
As one might imagine, the Brooklyn Museum’s Artists Ball had no shortage of artists (or art) present. From artist-designed dinner tables by stars like Olek, Orly Genger, and Nina Katchadourian to walls festooned with candy, the museum went all out for their annual fundraising gala. Two incredible exhibits, “Ai Weiwei: According to What?” and “Swoon: Submerged Motherlands” were available for viewing throughout the evening. The party continued well into the night with a dance party featuring a performance by rapper Le1f.

The crowd was refreshingly diverse, with ensembles ranging from gowns to jeans and everything in between. The First Lady of New York, Chirlane McCray stopped by, as did Senator Charles Schumer, but unfortunately they didn’t stick around for the after party. Other famous faces included Padma Lakshmi, Judy Chicago, and Millie Brown (who you may recognize as Lady Gaga’s vomit artist).

"Brooklyn Museum's Artist Ball Will Feature Large, Bold Table Settings"

Wall Street Journal Carmel Melouney
April 15, 2014
You eat with your eyes first, goes the old culinary proverb.

On Wednesday night, the dinner served at the Brooklyn Museum’s Brooklyn Artists Ball will be a visual feast thanks to the multisensory table environments created by 16 leading local artists.

“Having been to scores and scores of major fundraising events over a decade, it’s much more fun when there’s something to focus on other than the chicken on your plate,” said Arnold Lehman, director of the Brooklyn Museum.

“Brooklyn has become the creative capital of the world,” said Mr. Lehman. Mr. Lehman said the idea for the table installations grew out of a collective discussion at the museum about how to make the gala “much more exciting and visually stimulating and just more fun.”

The 16 artists tapped by the museum to create installations for the event include Ellen Altfest, Oliver Clegg, Rico Gatson, Orly Genger, Alejandro Guzman, Nina Katchadourian, Olek, Adam Parker Smith, Iona Rozeal Brown, Carrie Schneider, Alyson Shotz, Courtney Smith, Nick Van Woert, Marianne Vitale, Heeseop Yoon and Ghost of a Dream (comprised of Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom). Each artist will transform a 40-foot-long table into a unique installation to be on view for that night only.

This year, for the first time, the museum will allow the table displays to be purchased with proceeds shared with the artists.“Everyone who attends is so taken with the artistic creativity on the table that people have wanted to by these works of art,” said Mr. Lehman.“This year we’ve talked it through with the artists in advance and almost all of them are making available elements of their table design for sale.” The museum provides a stipend for materials and reviews the designs to make sure they’re not dangerous.

All 16 artists are expected to attend the ball, and will be seated with their works so they can discuss them with other guests. “It really makes for a much more interesting evening,” said Mr. Lehman. https://artsy.net/feature/brooklyn-artists-ball

Ed Ruscha: Ribbon Words Catalogue

Now available for purchase through the gallery
May 18, 2016

Focusing on Ed Ruscha’s ribbon word works begun in 1966, Ed Ruscha: Ribbon Words, is the first major exhibition and publication devoted exclusively to this important part of the artist’s influential oeuvre. Published to accompany the exhibition currently at the gallery, this richly illustrated catalogue features reproductions of more than 50 masterpieces, along with a comprehensive essay by the show’s curator Dieter Buchhart, as well as contributions by Glenn O’Brien and Alexandra Schwartz.

The exhibition catalogue highlights the works’ wide array of subtle color and nuanced drawing technique demonstrating how Ruscha’s paper ribbons became three-dimensional, illusionistic objects. Developing from the lines of cursive handwriting, the artist found a way to transform line into the appearance of three-dimensional forms. His imaginary ribbon word objects provoke multiple cultural meanings as they suggest sculptures modelled by light. Ruscha’s breathtaking work, using an inimitable trompe l’oeil technique, with the application of gunpowder, constitutes a major contribution to the history of art in the 20th century.

Curator and author Dieter Buchhart is an expert in modern and contemporary art. He has curated numerous major exhibitions of works by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Georges Braque, and Edvard Munch, at institutions including the Guggenheim Bilbao, the de Young Museum in San Francisco, the Brooklyn Museum, the Fondation Beyeler, Basel, the Albertina, Vienna, and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

Glenn O’Brien is a writer and editor, focusing on contemporary art and culture. He has written numerous monographs and essays on artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Christopher Wool.

Alexandra Schwartz is the author of Ed Ruscha’s Los Angeles (2010) and editor of Ed Ruscha: Leave Any Information at the Signal (2004). She is the winner of the National Book Critics Circle’s Nona Balakian Citation for Excellence in Reviewing for 2014.
