Sally Mann’s photographs inspire new work, Maya Lin sculpts a landscape, Allora & Calzadilla explore rifts and borders, and more in this week’s roundup.
- Sally Mann’s iconic landscape photographs are the basis of Metempsychosis, a group show at Reynolds Gallery (Richmond, VA). Artists Jessie Mann and Liz Liguori created new diptychs by painting over and lasering Sally Mann’s large-scale prints. A conversation between all three artists is available online. The exhibition closes November 16.
- Allora & Calzadilla’s first major solo exhibition in Italy is at the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi (Milan). Fault Lines refers to the rifts in the earth that form between two shifting masses of rock; unstable fissures that conceal a deep fragility and the possibility of breaking at any moment. The artists take these rifts as points of departure for an exploration of physical and symbolic borders and junctures. Closes November 24.
- James Turrell’s skyspace The Color Inside is at the University of Texas at Austin. Like Turrell’s other works, the structure explores humans’ connection with space and light. In a video published online, curator Lynn Herbert offers her response to the work as experienced during sunrise, daylight, and sunset.
- Maya Lin’s artwork is at Contemporary Art Museum (Raleigh, NC) in the group exhibition Surveying the Terrain. Her piece Blue Lake Pass converts a topographical map from a satellite photo into a three-dimensional landscape of cut wooden particle boards and allows viewers room to walk through and imagine themselves becoming part of a “surveilled” landscape. Closes January 13, 2014.
- Ursula von Rydingsvard was recently featured in Bloomberg. In an interview with Catherine Smith, von Rydingsvard discusses her 20-foot tall, 6-ton sculpture outside of Barclays Center (Brooklyn, NY) and the inspiration behind the the work.
- Janine Antoni’s keynote speech, “At Home in the Body,” at the 2013 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Conference (Houston, TX) is now available for download. An abstract of the lecture also appears in Volume 34 of the NCECA Journal.
- Lari Pittman will have new artwork at Regen Projects (Los Angeles, CA) beginning November 9. From A Late Western Impaerium will include three monumental paintings, two large canvases, and multiple series of drawings. Pittman has exhibited at Regen Projects since 1995, and this will be his seventh show at the gallery. Closes December 21.
