Sculptures, drawings, and prints by Steven and William Ladd at the Parrish Art Museum (October 26–January 19, 2015)

The exhibition will present the Ladd brother’s exploration of the boundaries between design and fashion, and fine art and craft. Using non-traditional materials like fabric, belts, beads, and paper, the artists create portraits of memories—rich visual abstractions based on their shared childhood experiences growing up in St. Louis and attending the small Catholic grade school, Mary Queen of the Universe, after which the exhibition was named.

Behind the scenes with artist Eddie Martinez

In honor of Eddie Martinez: Nomader, on view now at Kohn Gallery (Los Angeles), we paid a visit to the artist’s new Brooklyn studio. Martinez is best known for his textured paintings and sculptures where traditional oil paint mixes with the detritus of his studio and materials he finds in various locations near where he makes his work. 

Click here for an installation view of ‘Nomader’, an exhibition of new paintings, sculptures, and works on paper. Closes Saturday, October 25, 2014.

Photographs from The Noguchi Museum's amazing archive:

View of the indoor/ outdoor gallery of The Noguchi Museum, ca. mid- 1980s. 

Noguchi’s arrangement of basalt sculptures in the top photo is true to the current installation, while it appears the artist was still trying out different constellations of sculptures in the lower image. For a curator, one of the joys of the photo archive is to see Noguchi playing with the relationships between materials and forms at a moment when these sculptures were his most prized—i.e. current—works.

This interactive sculpture by artist Virginia Overton is an undulating 488-foot-long brass tube that spans Storm King Art Center’s rolling fields. It mirrors the curves of the park’s hills carrying sound, picking up slight noises, and allowing visitors different aural experiences on their outdoor treks. Don’t miss the chance to experience this transformative site-specific installation! On view through November 30.

Q & A with Cross-Country Traveler Justine Kurland

Q. You have two projects opening this September at Mitchell-Innes & Nash. The first is a series of new photos titled “Sincere Auto Care.” What inspired you to focus on cars and the open road?

A. The cars came directly out of the train photographs — themes revolving around certain American values like freedom and self-determination. But specifically I remember driving along some highway talking to a friend who works as a landscaper on the phone.  He told me he had been working so much he felt like he was a tree.  And I realized I had been driving so much I was a car.
