2018 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Grant Program Recipient

The Painters and Sculptors Grant Program was established in 1993 to acknowledge painters and sculptors creating work of exceptional quality through unrestricted career support. The first year of grants was awarded in 1994 and the Foundation has funded individual artists annually since that time.

The Foundation currently awards $25,000 to twenty-five artists through a nomination process. Nominators from across the country are invited to recommend artists, at any stage in their career, who are currently under-recognized for their creative achievements, and whose practice would significantly benefit from the grant. In an anonymous process, a jury panel then selects the twenty-five awardees. Nominators and jurors include prominent visual artists, curators, and art educators who are dedicated to supporting artists.

The gallery is transformed into a flexible space designed by an architect and artist. Always in flux, the exhibition is home to a group show; a reference library based on the essay Botox Ethics, by artist and theorist, Katherine Behar; and to the second gathering of Paradise Commons, a loose group of artists and writers; a curator, a dancer and a librarian.

A timer will start the countdown for the performance. Each artist will be programmed to begin and end at a time designated through chance operations within the 120-minute interval. At times a poet will be reading while a sound artist is performing. A dancer will enter, perform and depart. Sounds will overlap. There will be silence. Every aspect of the performance will be unrehearsed, live, spontaneous, and uninterrupted. Audiences can come and go as the event clock ticks out of time.

Nathan Skiles, a Ringling professor, curates the annual Spectrum exhibit by recruiting three artists and mixing and matching their work in a single gallery.
This year, the space will feature Elisabeth Condon, Sue Havens and Kristen Schiele. “It’s sort of anti-collaboration,” Skiles says. “They don’t know who the other artists are going to be. The goal is to bring something together that can harmonize, but not so much that one person loses their identity. It should be a bit of a mystery, something that is revealed even to the artists.”

Wallpaper Dragon

Wallpaper Dragon
Wednesday, March 7, 2 to 3 PM
Platform 4, The Gallery (2014 - ) by Wang Xin
Presented by de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong, Armory Show, Pier 94

Wallpaper Dragon presents a single 129.54cm x 1005.84cm roll of watercolor paper undulating over the walls across the floor and exterior space of The Gallery. The scroll-like paper, literally supported by the Gallery walls, spills over and beyond them. Color and ink flow and merge together, containing imagery of goddesses and warriors with patterns from Condon's mother’s fabrics and wallpapers that further complicate the surface and unfolding of time.
The theme of the installation is freedom to re-imagine decor as the intersection between nature and culture. For an hour the Gallery contains a synthetic landscape transgressing the natural boundaries of its physical space.
The installation expands upon earlier site-specific installations made after Condon returned from China in 2014. Since then, her mother's vintage wallpapers and fabrics inspire her to incorporate the décor in her childhood home as a formative artistic influence. As a child Condon experienced the repeated patterns as confining, a trap. Now, setting the patterns and images free in a river of free-floating associations redefines the improvisational tecniques of scroll painting in dimensional space.
