Fiber Optic at Minus Space

Joell Baxter, Scrim / Screen, 2015, site-specific installation, screenprinted paper, glue & pushpins, 106 x 247 inches


November 7 – December 19, 2015 

MINUS SPACE is delighted to present the group exhibition Fiber Optic, highlighting several generations of artists innovating at the intersection of geometry and fiber. The exhibition will feature works by fifteen artists from across the country, including Anni Albers, Joell Baxter, Samantha Bittman, Chris Bogia, Martha Clippinger, Gabriel Dawe, Michelle Grabner, Lynne Harlow, Linda King Ferguson, Victoria Munro, Gabriel Pionkowski, Carrie Pollack, Sue Ravitz, Stephen Westfall, and Emi Winter. 

Over the past decade, there has been a strong resurgence of interest among contemporary artists in traditional forms associated with fiber and textiles. Fiber Optic will feature geometric, patterned, and color-based work across a wide array of media, including weaving, needlepoint, photography, painting, print, sculpture, and installation. As a spiritual and material touchstone for many of the participating artists, the exhibition will begin with a single, patterned gouache on paper study by the late, legendary Bauhaus artist and weaver Anni Albers (1899-1994). The exhibition will continue with artists Gabriel Dawe, Sue Ravitz, and Chris Borgia, who will present stitched, embroidered, and appliqued works comprised primarily of colored string or yarn. 

Fiber Optic will also feature a new impastoed painting by Michelle Grabner depicting a gingham fabric pattern; Samantha Bittman’s black and white pattern painting over a handwoven textile; Victoria Munro’s brightly-colored cotton duck weaving using a painting stretcher as a loom; Linda King Ferguson’s lozenge-shaped acrylic painting on cut stretched linen; Gabriel Pionkowski’s deconstructed work with cut, woven, plaited, and painted canvas; Carrie Pollack’s photographs of rugs digitally printed in grayscale onto linen; Lynne Harlow’s repurposed Fender amplifier grill cloth mounted over a wooden stretcher; and Joell Baxter’s large-scale, chromatic window installation consisting of screenprinted, cut, and woven papers. The exhibition will conclude with large wool weavings by Emi Winter, Martha Clippinger, and Stephen Westfall, which were produced in collaboration with traditional master weavers in Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico. 

We are grateful to the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, Hionas Gallery, James Cohan Gallery, Lennon Weinberg, Outlet, and The Hole for their generous assistance with this exhibition.

Top Ten with Shai Yehezkelli

Shai Yehezkelli's Top Ten

Ido Bar-El - The teacher who made me interested in painting at art school. A great artist, and generally speaking, one of the good guys. His current show at the Tel-Aviv museum of art is beautiful.

Clonex - Whoever invented Clonex & Xanax should get the Nobel prize. This stuff saved my life so many times. I am a huge fan.

Smoking - Love/hate relationship, but I guess love won this round.

King For a Day… Fool for a Lifetime by Faith No More - One of the few albums that can still excite me as it did when I was a teen.

Tigger - My cat and my BFF.

Sigmar Polke's drawings - My first encounter with Polke was through his drawings back in 2002 when I had to give a lecture about them during my first year of BFA studies. Big game-changer.

Lukas Medium 5 - My recent discovery; gets my oil paint dry in less than a day and the texture is also brilliant.

Kafka - I enjoy reading a lot and I'm a fan of so many authors, but Kafka is probably the only one I keep going back to whenever I'm out of new books. Every time I read his work, it's like I’m reading it for the first time.

Instagram - I got addicted and it's not as bad as FB addiction.

Letting go of stuff - I hate collecting stuff. In my early twenties, I used to have a huge collection of records and books that I was so proud of, until I realized they just held me back. I hope to lose more stuff as I get older.

Joseph Montgomery at Dürst Britt & Mayhew

Rules for Coyote
12 September - 31 October 2015

Dürst Britt & Mayhew is proud to present American artist Joseph Montgomery's first solo exhibition in The Netherlands.

Montgomery’s work has the structure and syntax of sculpture, but it simultaneously has all the trappings of painting: wood, canvas, various types of coating and paint. The blurring and confounding of classification lends it a strange sense of hybridity. Montgomery’s expansion of abstract painting results in two distinctive types of painting: collages and shims.

For 'Rules for Coyote’ Montgomery makes use of the colour scheme of the famous Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner cartoons (created in 1948 for Warner Bros.), which are situated in the southwest American desert. Red-brown (the colour of rock formations), yellow (the colour of sand), green (the colour of cacti), dark brown (the colour of Wile E. Coyote) and blue (the colour of Road Runner) are just a few of these constantly recurring colours. Montgomery humorously compares his practice with the fate of the coyote, who constantly fails to catch the bird but never tires of coming up with another ’solution'.

Joseph Montgomery (1979) received his MFA from Hunter College in New York. He recently had a solo presentation at Art Rotterdam, a solo exhibition at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) and his work was shown in the much-discussed group exhibition 'Painter Painter' at The Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis. This year the Centraal Museum Utrecht acquired two of Montgomery's works for its permanent collection.

Concurrently with his solo exhibition at Dürst Britt & Mayhew Montgomery will be participating in the group exhibition 'Casting Couch' at Billytown in The Hague (12 September - 24 October 2015), where he will be showing one of his recent animations.

We thank WARSTEINER Nederland for kindly supporting the opening event.
