Henry Taylor | MOMA PS1

Henry Taylor
On view January 29, 2012—April 9, 2012

Los Angeles-based artist Henry Taylor (American, b. 1958) applies his brush both to canvas and to unconventional materials—suitcases, crates, cereal boxes, cigarette packs—offering a refreshing, idiosyncratic perspective on culture and politics using everyone and everything around him as source material. While Taylor drew and painted in his youth, he studied art later in life, attending the California Institute of the Arts after working for ten years as a psychiatric technician at a state hospital. In the months preceding the exhibition, the artist will be in residency in one of MoMA PS1's former classrooms, using it as his New York studio to create new work for the exhibition.

Michael Minelli: Curated by Sowon Kwon
CUE Art Foundation

January 26 – March 10, 2012
Opening reception Saturday, January 26, 6-8pm

“Michael Minelli’s work is carefully and singularly made...its modesty in this regard is as purposeful as its engagement with the big, the bang, the speed and polish of our world as mediated by mass culture. His work lays bare the extent to which we are irrevocably made, remade and struck dumb in mass culture’s wake.”
—Sowon Kwon

Amy Sarkisian | Morbid Curiosity + Eslov Wide Shut

Morbid Curiosity: The Richard Harris Collection at the Chicago Cultural Center January 28 - July 8, 2012
Morbid Curiosity showcases collector Richard Harris’ nearly 1,000 works, including creations by many of the greatest artists of our time, which explore the iconography of death across a variety of artistic, cultural and spiritual practices from 2000 B.C.E. to the present day.

The two major components of this exhibition are the “War Room,” highlighting the atrocities of war in notable works from the 17th century to present day in the 4th floor Exhibit Hall; and the “Kunstkammer of Death,” a modern-day “cabinet of curiosities” housed in the Sidney R. Yates Gallery, featuring a wide-ranging survey of mortality across cultures and spiritual traditions.

The centerpiece of the “War Room” is Mr. Harris’ collection of five great war series featuring prints by Jacques Callot, Francisco Goya, Otto Dix, the Chapman Brothers and Sandow Birk, which he has acquired over the past 30 years. This exhibition marks the first time that all five series will be exhibited together in their entirety.
