Mika Rottenberg: The Production of Luck

Featured image is a detail from the installation "Bowls Balls Souls Holes" (2014), produced for Mika Rottenberg's recent exhibition at The Rose Art Museum and reproduced here from the accompanying publication, The Production of Luck. In a conversation with Rose Art Museum director Christopher Bedford, Rottenberg states, "This piece spins around relationships between the physical and metaphysical. Rooms become characters, the bingo balls become electrons bouncing, the clothespin guy is the conductor, the sleeping moon lady is a vessel, and the announcer is the gatekeeper. They all affect temperature and move architecture. Internal psychological space extends beyond the body’s border, shaping the exterior by using parapsychology."

Anne Collier

In the catalogue to MCA Chicago's current Anne Collier exhibition, curator Michael Darling writes, "Collier is a consummate rummager, constantly scouring eBay, thrift stores, and used book and record shops in search of evocative materials for use in her photographs. In 2007, for instance, she made a photograph of a 1970s-era poster of a nude woman at the beach, walking out into the surf. The calligraphic 'California' logo at the bottom right corner helps classify this image into the category of deflected self-portraits found throughout the artist’s repertoire: a California girl who has a particular attachment to the ocean. But Collier has also become a connoisseur of such outré images, often tracking down the original photographer or finding rare versions of similar material. She returned to this imagery in 2013 when she found a negative from the same photo shoot, which yielded the original poster on eBay, and then made a large scale print of it. 'Negative (California)' (2013) moves away from the dated, slightly ironic nostalgia of the original image and brings new gravitas to the picture, easily allowing us to imagine that this figure, by now clearly a possible stand-in for the artist, is boldly stepping out into the dark unknown. It is not outlandish to think of this as Collier’s take on of Yves Klein’s famous 'Leap into the Void' (1960), another self-portrait addressing the bravery, faith, and risks of all meaningful artistic action."

Jasper Johns: Regrets

Jasper Johns: Regrets

Based on a series of John Deakin photographs of the painter Lucian Freud, commissioned in the mid-1960s by painter Francis Bacon, Jasper Johns' newest work, on view at MoMA through September 1, is magical, peculiarly somber, meditative and mesmerizing, according to Holland Cotter of the New York Times. Featured image, an untitled watercolor from 2013, is reproduced from the accompanying catalogue, Jasper Johns: Regrets. Cotter writes, "As the series grows, moving from drawings into paintings, and then into prints, Freud’s figures become mere tangles of line, and from those tangles another image emerges: a human skull with big, empty eyes. It rests on top of the dark rectangle, which now might be read as the door of a tomb, opened onto blackness, oblivion… Because of the title of the series, and the fact that an octogenarian produced it, there’s a tendency to view the show as a valedictory gesture, the end of something. But it doesn’t feel that way at all. It feels assured and centered, quiet but with lots of give, sagely alive."
