Institute News from the Blogs
CAM is getting a lot of ink for our current exhibition CAM@25: Social Engagement. This exhibition features some of our most talked about work from our past 25 years. Even the New York Times has mentioned the show in their “Gun Report” segment, which sadly includes the victims of gun violence each day. Here is a list of stories we’ve found covering the show with an outtake from each article.
We are very excited about the upcoming ”Graphicstudio: Uncommon Practice at USF” exhibition at Tampa Museum of Art! The exhibition opens on February 1, 2014 at the beautiful new TMA facility.
Galleryist NY recently posted a review of the current Christian Marclay show at Paula Cooper Gallery so we’re sharing an excerpt of that review and a link to the full review.
SubRosa: The Language of Resistance is still on view at USFCAM. Be sure to check out the exhibition before it’s gone December 7th! Here’s a bit from the press on the USFCAM exhibition: Creative Loafing | Review: “SubRosa Reaches the Age of Dissent” Art corespondent Julie Garisto reviews SubRosa for Creative Loafing Throughout SubRosa, absurdity mixes with tragedy, demystifying the injustices so that the viewer doesn’t feel completely overcome. Best of all, you come away with a more nuanced view of the plights of others and the artists portraying them..."
Have you visited the current exhibition at the Contemporary Art Museum, SubRosa: The Language of Resistance? The exhibition has created local buzz, prompting a feature on WEDU’s “Arts Plus.” The crew from WEDU visited the exhibition and compiled a short video including an interview with Noel Smith and Margaret Miller with highlights from SubRosa.
We have just completed our 15th Annual Graphicstudio Benefit Sale. The event was a huge success and brought many new collectors and friends to the USF Campus. All proceeds benefit Graphicstudio's research and education programs, the very heart of our mission.
The art season is about to begin which means the Fall exhibitions are underway. We are pleased to announce that some of Graphicstudio's own visiting artists will be showcasing their works in major exhibitions around the world, from New York to Hong Kong.
On Tuesday, May 21st, the USF Contemporary Art Museum announced the launch of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 1,800 museums across America.
Christian Marclay's unique cyanotype entitled Allover (Genesis, Travis Tritt, and Others), produced at Graphicstudio in 2008, has been included in an installation at MoMA, New York.
The last several months have been filled with awards and recognition for our friend Christian Marclay. Recent accolades include last year’s Venice Biennale Golden Lion award, and recognition from a Newsweek/Daily Beast blogger as one of the most important artists of today. And just this week, Christian was given an even more prodigious honor. He was named one of “The Most Influential People in the World,” by Time magazine.
Allan McCollum’s “Each and Every One of You” may have started out here in Tampa, as a Graphicstudio edition, but it has since traveled to La Salle de Bains in Lyon and Galerie Thomas Schulte in Berlin. And now, a commissioned version of the work entitled “One Thousand Women” has been installed at a flagship Chanel store in London.
This just in! A brand new Christian Marclay book, Cyanotypes, is available for purchase. The book includes unique cyanotypes Marclay produced here at Graphicstudio.
