Cameron Jamie

Gladstone Gallery.
May 1 - May 30, 2015
New York | 24th Street


Press sheet:

Gladstone Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Cameron Jamie. Jamie is known for working in a wide range of media, creating films, sculptures, works on paper, and artist books that are united by an experimental approach to traditional materials and methods. This exhibition will present Jamie's recent explorations in printmaking, as well as new ceramic masks and sculptures.

Jamie's monotypes are the result of extensive experimentation with printmaking processes. The prints are richly layered with colorful ink washes, staccato pen lines, and the veiled form of a masked bird-like figure, renewing a familiar motif found throughout the artist's paintings and books. Layering, erasure, working, and reworking is a generative process for Jamie, as artifacts of partially erased gestures activate the final image with records of the artist's process.

This exhibition will also feature ceramic masks and abstract sculptures. Jamie's ceramic sculptures are formed from organic, hand-molded shapes and pieces; through repeated firing and glazing, the structures are glossed in an animated surface pattern of swirling lava varnishes with spectacular richness. For the first time, Jamie will present his masks in a manner that allows one to view the interior of the ceramic piece, foregrounding and aligning the position of the viewer as that of the mask wearer. Jamie's films and sculptures are often described as a form of anthropological investigation; with this new mode of presentation we are invited in not only as voyeurs of the artwork's often hidden interior space, but also to empathize with the masked. The material exploration on display demonstrates the artist's ability to traverse the conventional and experimental at once, re-imagining recognizable forms and expanding the discourse of ceramic and monotype.

Jamie's new book, Front Lawn Funerals and Cemeteries, will be released at Printed Matter, Inc. (New York) on April 29, and a limited edition artist book titled KOPBF Book XIII will be available through Walther König in April.

Cameron Jamie was born in Los Angeles in 1969 and lives in Paris. His work has been presented in solo museum exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Zurich (2013) and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2006), traveling to the MIT List Visual Arts Center. Jamie has been featured in film festivals and major group exhibitions including the Berlin Biennial (2010), the Whitney Biennial (2006), the Venice Biennale (2005), and Let's Entertain/Au-dela du spectacle at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2000-2001); in September Jamie will participate in the 2015 Lyon Biennale. In 2008 Jamie was the first recipient of the Yanghyun Prize.

Watch This! Revelations in Media Art

3rd floor North, American Art Museum (8th and F Streets, N.W.)
April 24, 2015 – September 7, 2015

The second half of the 20th century introduced an array of technologies and electronic phenomena that set art in motion. Innovations in high-fidelity stereo, broadcast television, videotape and satellite technologies contributed to the frenetic pace of social change through the 1950s, '60s and '70s, simultaneously shattering and shaping modes of communication and expression. From the '80s into the millennium, the electronic age burst into the digital age, opening entirely new terrain for creative exploration. Artists have fearlessly engaged these technological leaps, finding in them new modes of expression that continuously defy and redefine the boundaries of "art."
Watch This! Revelations in Media Art presents pioneering and contemporary artworks that trace the evolution of a continuously emerging medium. The exhibition celebrates artists who are engaged in a creative revolution—one shaped as much by developments in science and technology as by style or medium—and explores the pervasive interdependence between technology and contemporary culture. The exhibition includes 44 objects from 1941 to 2013, which were acquired by the museum as part of its longstanding commitment to collecting and exhibiting media art.

Watch This! includes major works by artists Cory Arcangel, Hans Breder, Takeshi Murata, Bruce Nauman, Raphael Montañez Ortiz, Nam June Paik, Martha Rosler, Eve Sussman, Bill Viola and others that highlight the breadth of media art, including 16 mm films, computer-driven cinema, closed-circuit installations, digital animation, video games and more.

Two video games—"Flower" (2007), by Jenova Chen and Kellee Santiago and "Halo 2600" (2010) by Ed Fries—represent a rapidly-evolving new genre in media art. Both will be on view for the first time since the museum acquired the games in 2013. The museum is a leader in identifying video games as an art form, and it was one the first museum in the United States to acquire video games as partof its permanent collection, marking a commitment to the continuing study and preservation of video games as an artistic medium.

An exciting highlight in the exhibition is the debut of two newly uncovered works by Paik, considered the "father of video art." An early FORTRAN computer program—the existence of which was previously unknown—developed by Paik with Bell Labs, and an early rendition of one of the artist's famed "TV Clocks" that was long thought lost, were discovered in the artist's archive after it was acquired by the museum in 2009. The exhibition is the first time the FORTRAN program and its related print have been exhibited to the public.

Archival materials related to the artworks on view expand on the varied and unorthodox practices among media artists. Schematic diagrams, correspondence, storyboards and other ephemera that shed light on the engineering behind custom-built electronics, broadcast performance pieces and pioneering computer programs are included in the exhibition.
The exhibition is organized by Michael Mansfield, curator of film and media arts.



Tony Conrad has a retrospective at ica philly, includes some cool contact mic experiments and some of his instruments as well as (i think) his whole catalog of video works.

David Tibet exhibit is still running until May 25 in Fullerton, CA, USA. I went for the opening and got to meet David. Pure magick. I've been back twice and will go again next week. Highly recommended for anyone who can make it.
