Group Exhibition
Post 9-11
Opening Reception: 6PM – 9PM

Exhibition Dates: June 30 - August 27, 2011

OH WOW Gallery 937 N. La Cienega / Los Angeles / CA / 90069 								  Press Release
Post 9-11, a group exhibition distinct of a decade and definitive of an era. The work of the nine artists represented (Dan Colen, Terence Koh, Hanna Liden, Nate Lowman, Adam McEwen, Ryan McGinley, Agathe Snow, Dash Snow, and Aaron Young)  sidestep categorization into a particular movement or style; yet speak  to a distinct history through their highly individual, visual dialogue,  which includes painting, photography, sculpture, and installation.
Operating in a new millennium, as friends, collaborators, and New  York City artists, their relationships with each other cemented fully  over the last ten years – a decade spent sharing ideas, studios,  apartments, and themselves. This intimate connection not only informed  their practice, it influenced their creative progression. Their union  provides affirmation that synthesis is a stronger route than fracture,  as each artist has now fleshed out their own voice and their own vision,  due in part to their bond.
Creating imagery, which at times expressed a shared, youthful  freedom, also responds to their experience of these ten years; work that  ranges from defiant, irreverent, destructive, to sublime, utopian, and  emotive. For example, a two-dimensional piece by Dan Colen, Blop!,  2011, fabricated from tar and feathers adhered to canvas, appears  chaotic and abject. It references both the barbaric and archaic act of  social punishment, while also interjecting concepts of materiality, and  the visual effects of using unorthodox media in painting. Conversely, in  its sublimity, Ryan McGinley’s photograph Tom (Golden Tunnel),  2010, is a surreal and cinematically arranged image of a nude, male  figure in a train tunnel. It is as transcendent in its ethereal  treatment as it is existential in its choreography and open-ended  narrative.
These brief examples articulate that as a whole, the work in this  exhibition is effective in its ability to translate the myriad reactions  possible in light of a connected reality. No two experiences can be  exact in their expression, however, their aesthetic approaches, although  disparate, present a visual memoir of a notable era. Reluctant in  yielding to definition, yet decidedly American, Post 9-11 presents an epitome of a creative group, and characterizes the mood and complexities of this decade.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

In the future, I’ll have a page for followers to post their own BlackBerry photos, as well as, contests and art shows where the top “BB SHOOTERS” will be published via POWERHOUSE.

Happy Hunting!!! - A.C

“BLACKBERRY SHOOTERS DON’T USE A HIGH CALIBER, THEY USE BUCKSHOT!” - A.C

——————————————————————————————————————-

Hi! I’m a BlackBerry user, as are a lot of my friends.

Whether I’m at the D.M.V, traveling, stuck in traffic, checking out a band, an art show, people watching, staring at my feet or rearranging my grandmothers glass menageries for a civil war reenactment, I have my BlackBerry to document these lineal, fleeting moments we call “life”.

So, I decided to create a page to post my favorite BB photos, as well as, a place for other “BB SHOOTERS” to post their most recent gems…

I call it iSHOTBLACKBERRY.COM

While there is some warranted criticisms with regard to quality, pixel dimension, etc. and the iPhones general monopoly on the art/media side of phone applications and functionality, my thoughts on this are as follows: SHOOT IT ANY WAY YOU CAN!

Art schools, the technically elite will have you believe that you must first follow their theories, then purchase their most coveted tools and then, if you can afford it, make art…The truth is, most don’t make it following these guidelines. The ones that do, break the rules in almost every department. You can’t afford oil, use house paint. You don’t have money for canvas, use drywall, a wood panel or someone else’s crappy painting!

So, if you like the functionality of your BlackBerry, use it! If you like your touchscreen iPhone, use it! The result will be in your personal vision that you are driven to convey through your tools whatever they may be.

SHOOT IT!

That’s why I call this page iSHOTBLACKBERRY.COM and not……

iWAS.TRYING.TO.TAKE.A.PICTURE.BUT.BY.THE.TIME.I.FOUND.

BLACKBERRY SHOOTERS DON’T USE A HIGH CALIBER, THEY USE BUCKSHOT!

HAPPY HUNTING!!!
