Antioch College’s Herndon Gallery to open Living as Form (The Nomadic Version)

The exhibition will open on Friday, April 18, running through Friday, May 16, 2014.

Antioch College is pleased to announce the opening of Living as Form (The Nomadic Version) on April 18, 2014, at the Herndon Gallery on the Antioch College campus in Yellow Springs, Ohio. The exhibition will run through May 16, 2014. Originally produced in 2011 for Creative Time in New York City under the curation of Nato Thompson, Living as Form seeks to draw a through-line between the “critical mass” of activism that emerged in the 21st century with the concurrent turn towards the social in contemporary art.  The exhibition brings together projects whose emphasis on participation, dialogue and action have led them to be categorized by art historians as social practice, relational aesthetics, new genre public art, and dialogic arts.  All of the works in the exhibition show a commitment to community, activism, and social change and engage with such topics as health care, convening, access, food, and race to name but a few.

Living as Form (The Nomadic Version) is an exhibition that is co-organized by Creative Time and Independent Curators International (ICI), and assembled in collaboration with Antioch College. For the traveling version of the exhibition that will appear in the Herndon Gallery, co-organizers Jillian Soto, Anthony Romero and Sara Black will present a broad archive of documentation and ephemera of more than 20 socially engaged artist projects from around the world in three unique, week-long phases.  Additionally, new works by Micha Cárdenas, ESCAPE GROUP in collaboration with Sara Black, and the Compass Group representing the Midwest Radical Cultural Corridor have been commissioned for this version of the exhibition and will become a part of the growing archive.

A series of weekly conversations addressing the broadly interpreted themes represented in the exhibition will be held in conjunction with the show and are open to Yellow Springs and regional communities. Please join us on Wednesday, April 23, at 7:30 p.m. for a conversation organized around themes of Occupation and Convening; on Wednesday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m., for a conversation on Borders and Access; and on Wednesday, May 7, at 7:30 p.m. for a conversation on Difference. All conversations will be held in the Herndon Gallery in South Hall on the Antioch campus.

The co-curators, in expressing their interest in presenting Living as Form (The Nomadic Version), have written: “Yellow Springs and Antioch College have a rich legacy of activism and a historic commitment to social justice. We are interested in presenting this work for the purpose of sparking a conversation around art and its relationship to social change, and also to consider the boundaries of art as it is defined broadly and within our community. The nature of the works, which sometimes take the form of ad-hoc networks and structures that do not fulfill a traditional idea of what art should look like make the show a particularly fruitful one to inspire local and regional audiences.”

In addition to the weekly discussions, Antioch College will be hosting a Living as Form symposium, May 9-11.  On Friday, May 9, at 7:00 p.m., there will be a performance in the gallery by Micha Cárdenas, a Los Angeles-based artist and scholar. Her work seeks to “create community, autonomy, and reduce violence against women, LGBTQI people, people of color, and other groups who continue to combat violence on a daily basis.”  Cárdenas works within the overlapping realms of performance, activism, and technology to organize for change.

On Saturday, May 10, the Compass Group, a collective of artists and activists who have been working in what they describe as the geographic and political area of the Midwest Radical Cultural Corridor, will present the fourth iteration of their Monsanto Hearings in Yellow Springs under the collaborative leadership of Sarah Lewison (Carbondale, Ohio), Sarah Kanouse (Iowa City, Iowa) and Claire Pentecost (Chicago, Illinois). The Hearings will be staged at the Clifton Lodge in Clifton, Ohio, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. All farmers, conservation managers, seed cleaners, agricultural workers, householders, scientists, naturalists and neighbors are invited to participate in this performance “hearing” in which people examine the significance of genetic modification and associated technologies, as well as the role of government in regulating these technologies (or not). The Monsanto trials have previously been held in Carbondale, Illinois; St. Louis, Missouri; and Iowa City, Iowa.

The symposium will conclude on Sunday, May 11, with a roundtable discussion in the Herndon Gallery beginning at 10:00 a.m. that will include independent scholar and cultural critic Brian Holmes, Micha Cárdenas, ESCAPE GROUP, and Sara Black as moderator. Following the discussion, ESCAPE GROUP, in collaboration with Sara Black, will present a performance that explores the recipe as form and content. All events during the symposium are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Dennie Eagleson, creative director of the Herndon Gallery, at deagleson@antiochcollege.org or call 937-768-6462937-768-6462.

Gallery hours are 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.

Opening Reception: Gary Birch Paintings

When: Friday, April 18, 2014
Time: 6-9 p.m.; Artist Talk 7 p.m.
Where: Yellow Springs Arts Council Gallery, 111 Corry Street, Yellow Springs

Yellow Springs Arts Council presents

Art Is Vice
Works by Gary Birch
Paintings in acrylic, charcoal, and pencil on wood and cloth mounted on wood
April 18th –May 11th
Opening Reception, Friday, April 18th  6-9 p.m.

Gallery Open Hours Wednesday- Sundays, 1-4 p.m.  April 18th –May 11th

When you think of art, you don’t usually think of using the word ‘destroy.’ For Gary Birch, it’s about the way he makes art— the process of painting then deconstructing, and finally restructuring what he has made to find the gold.

“I work in a way that attempts to allow for surprise. I say attempts because I get stuck. When that happens, I look at other art, look at the world, and destroy parts of the dull thing that I’m working on. What remains is a pictorial surface that is the result of trial and error and discernment.”

Gary works with acrylic paint and charcoal on wood. He may attach objects to the painting or use spray paint or cut the rectangle apart and reconfigure the images into a whole with less balance. Some of his paintings are framed, but most are left without that boundary. If you look close at his art you can often find a series or an outline of drilled holes.

“The enthusiasm generated by chance and error and discovery pushes the art through the resistance of revisions. The resulting image, if it has life, opens possibilities that result in more work.”

For this artist, the joy is in the process—successful work leads to more work. For the viewer, Gary’s work is also a process of discovery.  It makes you think!

Please join us at the Opening Reception: April 18th 6-9 p.m.
Gary Birch Gallery Talk 7 P.M.
