Jordan D. Schnitzer & THe Visiting Artist LECTURE Series: Bruce Nauman // PNCA

Bruce Nauman: Language Body mines the collection of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and presents fifteen works that showcases two elemental components found in the oeuvre of Bruce Nauman, anatomy and text. Beginning in the late 1960’s Nauman has forged a sensibility in his work where he puns upon the unstable nature of language and flesh, colliding these materials into a swirl of humor and insight.

This event is co-presented by Converge 45 and the Jordan D. Schnitzer Exhibition and Visiting Artist Series.

FRANK STELLA PRINTS: A RETROSPECTIVE

FRANK STELLA PRINTS: A RETROSPECTIVE

For over fifty years, Frank Stella has created a significant body of abstract art comprised of paintings, reliefs, sculptures, drawings, and prints. Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective details the artist’s remarkable career as a printmaker. It presents, as evidence, over 100 prints that make apparent how his highly experimental endeavors have redefined the traditional print. The exhibition also offers a clear view of Stella’s stylistic evolution—a series of reinventions from the minimalist geometric abstraction of the early years to the baroque exuberance of the later gestural work.Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective is the artist’s first major print retrospective since 1982. The exhibition is also the occasion for the publication of a revised and expanded second edition of The Prints of Frank Stella: A Catalogue Raisonné, 1967─1982 (New York: Hudson Hills Press, 1983).

Wangechi Mutu: The Hybrid Human

Wangechi Mutu: The Hybrid Human

Wangechi Mutu is a trained sculptor and studied anthropology but first came to prominence through her collage works, which fuse a diversity of sources culled from the image gluttony of late 20th century and early 21st century life. Mutu draws from the aesthetics of traditional ritual arts, science fiction, and Afrofuturistic funkdaleia. She makes use of materials from 19th century prints, fashion magazines, scientific periodicals, pornography, and ethnographic photographs to explore the contradictions of female and cultural identity and makes reference to colonial history, contemporary African politics, and the representation of female in media. She combines her sourced materials with ink, paint, and reflective material to realize lusciously intricate full figure works and portraiture. Since the late 1990’s Mutu’s artworks have been keenly focused on the creation of surrealist characters that are hauntingly grotesque and seductive while they critique systems of power and patriarchy, both political and aesthetic.

The Hybrid Human brings together several pieces, including complete sets of two series the Histology of the Different Classes of Uterine Tumors from 2006, and The Original Nine Daughters from 2012.
