Jean Baudrillard

JEAN BAUDRILLARD

The Conspiracy of Art: Part I is Château Shatto's second solo presentation of Jean Baudrillard’s photography. This is the first occasion the gallery will present the chromogenic color prints that Baudrillard processed and exhibited in his lifetime, and which bear the artists signature and annotations on the reverse. Titled after Baudrillard’s rousing essay from 1996 and the book of the same name compiled by his longtime collaborator Sylvere Lotringer, the exhibition presents Baudrillard’s photographs alongside texts extracted from The Conspiracy of Art. Jean Baudrillard was born in Reims in 1929 and became a definitive sociologist, cultural critic and theorist of postmodernity. His photography has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale; Daelim Museum, Seoul; the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro and Times Museum, Guangzhou. Baudrillard’s work was the subject of a solo exhibition at Fridericianum, Kassel; and in 2018, a solo exhibition was curated by Eric Troncy at Académie Conti, Vosne-Romanée, concurrent with his inclusion in L’Almanach 18 at Le Consortium, Dijon. The show runs until May 25, 2019.

Miho Dohi

MIHO DOHI

Miho Dohi’s sculptures at Nonaka-Hill in Los Angeles (titled buttai – Japanese for “object”) are cerebral in nature and occupy an unspecified space, inviting diverse interpretation as to their ideal state of rest. Hanging from the ceiling and walls and gathered on a single large table,—a level playing field— the sculptures retain legible evidence of the tactile explorations which inform Dohi’s decision process; thumb impressions onto thin sheet metal, hand pressure exerted into tight crimps and coils, tight winding of wire, and fraying of weaves.  Miho Dohi was born in 1974 Nara-prefecture, Japan, and currently lives and works in Kanagawa. Her artistic practice was developed after completion of postgraduate studies at Tokyo Zokei University in 2002. Dohi has shown extensively in and outside of Japan, most recently with solo exhibitions at Lulu (Mexico City, 2017), Shane Campbell Gallery (Chicago, 2017), and HAGIWARA PROJECTS (Tokyo, 2016). This is her first gallery show on the West Coast. The show runs until May 25, 2019.

Parergon: Japanese Art of the 1980s and 1990s

PARERGON: JAPANESE ART OF THE 1980S AND 1990S

Parergon: Japanese Art of the 1980s and 1990s, curated by Mika Yoshitake, is a two-part exhibition at Blum & Poe, Los Angeles. The second installment focuses on the themes of retro-futurism, noir, satire, and simulation, as well as those that probe national boundaries. Parergon brings together some of the most enigmatic works that were first generated during a rich two-decade period that are pivotal to the way we perceive and understand contemporary Japanese art today. Works from over twenty-five artists including EYE, Kenjiro Okazaki, Mariko Mori, Kodai Nakahara, Masato Nakamura, Yukinori Yanagi, Kenji Yanobe, and Tadanori Yokoo feature media spanning painting, sculpture, performance, noise, video, and photography. The show runs until May 19, 2019.

    The water-soaked stem of the lamp does not light, despite numerous attempts. I didn't know what kind of words to use, so I just kept peering into his eyes and listening to his voice, licking his round forehead with my tongue, and was to know a shapeless, sour emotional reticence, cold like iron. Any single day has a story to tell. And so they sit themselves down and sing songs intended to lure people back from the inside to the outside.

FEATURED ARTIST

Heidi Hahn

HEIDI HAHN

Burn Out in Shredded Heaven is the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles by New York-based artist and painter Heidi Hahn at Kohn Gallery. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Hahn creates introspective paintings that engage with the female body. Heidi Hahn’s work presented in Burn Out in Shredded Heaven, as noted by curator Diana Nawi, splits the difference between the imagistic and evocative qualities of painting, between its ability to construct narrative and its desire to evade language altogether. Her images relay iconically depicted female figures set against loosely rendered backgrounds that can suggest a real location—a city street, a subway, a bathroom, a bedroom—or give only a hint of site within what is an otherwise largely abstract surface. Heidi Hahn (b. 1982, Los Angeles, CA) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Hahn received her M.F.A. from Yale University in 2014, and her B.F.A. from Cooper Union in 2006. Hahn is an acting Professor of Painting and Drawing at Alfred University, NY, and has been the recipient of several awards, residencies, and fellowships, including the Jerome Foundation Grant, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture Residency, Madison, ME; and the Fine Arts Work Center Residency, Provincetown, MA, among others.  The show runs until May 23, 2019.

SUZANNE JACKSON

Suzanne Jackson’s recent solo exhibition, holding on to a sound, at O-Town House, marked the artist’s return to the Granada Buildings where her Gallery 32 was located.
