See you all Friday!!!

You Down With OPP?

Ya You Know Me!

The K Space crew is busy getting the gallery ready for our upcoming video installation show, OPP: Other People' Projections. The exhibition opens Saturday July 31 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and features the work of John Aåsp, Christopher Lowther, John Medina, Monica Panzarino and David Politzer.

OPP: Other People’s Projections is a video installation exhibition that explores ideas of identity through self-reflexivity, pop culture, sexuality, childhood practices and touches of humor. This eclectic exhibition highlights the use of both new and old media to convey stories and ideas.

John Aåsp is a multimedia artist whose studio focus is video as past photographic practice. His work can be viewed as a hybrid image between photography and cinema as it is played on a continuous loop and highlights the bridge between old and new media. His work is exhibited internationally. John is currently Director of Visual Arts at Rockport Center fort he Arts on the Gulf Coast of Texas. He serves as co-director for the Rockport Film Festival.

Christopher Lowther considers several aspects of space — cinematic, cultural and sexual — in various digital art mediums. He is Assistant Professor of Time-Based Media at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. He teaches Video, animation, interactive design, and 3D modeling/animation. Lowther is the recipient of the prestigious College Art Association Professional Development Fellowship (funded by the National Endowment for the Arts) in recognition of his innovative use of space and video projection to reference stereotypes of masculinity in Hollywood film. Lowther's videos and installations have exhibited both nationally and internationally.

John Medina, a Corpus Christi native, is an artist, musician and storyteller. His work commonly incorporates music, performance, installation, video, sculpture and printmaking in an effort to tell stories of his own life and the experiences of those around him. His video work is an exploration of conceptualism and the video medium itself. Often times Medina will use cheap, consumer-level or found cameras and low-end or amateur editing software to create his videos. Utilizing these tools connects Medina's work to the viewer and makes reference to the phenomena of modern video culture. Currently Medina resides in Dekalb, Illinois where he is pursuing his MFA at Northern Illinois University.

Monica Panzarino is a current MFA candidate at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and received a BFA from the Institute for Electronic Arts at Alfred University in 2002. Her work is primarily in single-channel video and sound and is often created using real-time processing. She is influenced by popular culture and aims to challenge its conventions and aesthetic. Her videos have screened both nationally and internationally, most recently at The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, and the European Media Art Festival in Osnabrück, Germany.

Nadine Sobel currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received her BFA in 2006 from New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Her work examines comfort, empathy, and what we have the ability to change. She explores this using ceramics, video, performance, found objects, and mixed media in a sculptural, installation environment.

David Politzer has recently taken a position at the University of Houston in the Photo/Digital Media department. He received his M.F.A. in Photography from Syracuse University and has. He works with mixed media as installation art and has shown his work both nationally and internationally.

PRESS RELEASE- Premier Film Event- Art:21

 For Immediate Release:

Corpus Christi, Texas 

K Space Contemporary Premier Film Event 

Art:21- Art in the Twenty-First Century  

Now in it’s fifth season, Art:21 will screen at K Space Contemporary.  This prime-time television PBS series is the only one of its kind to focus exclusively on contemporary art and has received the Peabody Award for distinguished achievement in electronic media.  

Free premier showings for two episodes of Art:21 will be screened at K Space Contemporary on Thursday October 1st & 8th from 7-9 pm. The event will be complimented with a panel discussion led by guest artists and professionals.  Art:21 the television series airs beginning October 7th on PBS. 

Art:21 is a series of artist interviews which provide rare access to individuals who grapple with the complex issues of our time, ask tough questions, and make works that delight, amaze and sometimes unsettle audiences worldwide.  Featured artists include Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, and Yinka Shonibare. 

October 1st- Episode 2: Fantasy

Fantasy presents four artists whose works or personal stories transport viewers to imaginary worlds and altered states of consciousness.

Jeff Koons utilizes symbolically charged images and objects from popular culture to frame his questions about taste and pleasure in modern society. His painstakingly crafted artworks were recently exhibited at a groundbreaking and controversial installation at the Chateau de Versailles.

Mary Heilmann filters her inner world through her work, imbuing abstract paintings, ceramics, and furniture with references to memories and aesthetic influences.

Florian Maier- Aichen is a German-born landscape photographer. His works— alternately romantic, cerebral and unearthly—question German Romanticism and myths of the American West. A young Beijing-based Chinese artist, Cao Fei’s videos, photos, and new media works explore perception, reality and inner lives in places as diverse as a Chinese factory and the virtual world of Second Life. 

October 8th- Episode 3: Transformation 

Whether observing and satirizing society or reinventing icons of literature, art history, and popular culture, the artists featured in Transformation capture the sensibilities of our age while at times inhabiting the characters they have created.  

 Yinka Shonibare MBE -Working in multiple mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography and film, Shonibare draws upon his bicultural upbringing, European literary classics, 18th and 19th century history to create tableaus of dazzling color and patterns that provoke re-consideration of stereotypical colonial narratives.

Cindy Sherman, well known for her photographic series, creates a myriad of characters, metamorphosing herself from Hollywood starlet to clown to society matron in her photographs and early films. 

Paul McCarthy has created works of video, installation, sculpture and performance. His video-taped performances and multimedia installations satirize polite society, ridicule authority, and bombard the viewer with a sensory overload of spectacular imagery.

Corpus Christi, TX: K Space Contemporary is pleased to announce the opening of a new art exhibition, Enmascarados: Homage to the Social Phenomenon of Lucha Libre. Enmascarados (the masked ones) is an art exhibition that showcases top Chicano artists’ interpretations of Lucha Libre, Mexican freestyle wrestling. Displayed are photos, paintings, mixed media, video, and sculpture. The exhibition was curated by curator, artist, and musician Angel Quesada, and is currently traveling throughout the state of Texas.

Statement by Exhibition Organizer, Angel Quesada:

Since the spectacle of Lucha Libre (freestyle wrestling) began in Mexico, it has captivated audiences and created a phenomenon that has gained popularity all over the world. The fact that the wrestlers don a mask is very compelling and beckons us to assume a role in the ring. Whichever side you choose to play in the ring; the "rudo" (rude boy brawler, bad guy) or the "tecnico" (traditional technical wrestler, good guy), the mask acts as a portal allowing our imagination to embody the luchador (wrestler).

This exhibit sits us, the audience, on the edge of the dark and controversial, the childish and even spiritual… rendering for us a colorful allegory of good versus evil. Although the mask's use in the sport hides the luchador's face, what emerges as a result of this masquerade is the paragon of a Mexican visual past and a newfound adoration and creation of a new iconic face of Mexico.

"Enmascarados: Homage to the Social Phenomenon of Lucha Libre", is not simply an exhibit but a collection of Chicano artists participating in a happening. It is a tour de force of artistic talent celebrating a slice of culture. The work included displays photos, paintings, mixed media, video, and sculpture which continue a dialogue of diversity and irreverent playfulness, nostalgia and exoticism.

Participating Artists:

Federico Archuleta (El Paso), Jesus Cimi, Fidencio Duran (Austin), Celeste De Luna (Brownsville), Faustinus Deraet (Mexico City), Xavier Garza (San Antonio), Beto Gonzalez (San Antonio/Los Angeles), Hector Hernandez (Laredo), Gerald Lopez (Corpus Christi), Enrique Martinez (El Paso/San Antonio), Marcela Moran (Laredo), Abel Ortiz-Acosta (Val Verde/Del Rio), Angel Quesada (Los Angeles/Boston), Bonifacio Rodriguez (Austin), Jose Rodriguez Venezuela/Leander), Ricardo Ruiz (Corpus Christi)

About the exhibition curator, Angel Quesada

Quesada, has worked as an artist, curator and preparator, and was production manager at Mexic-Arte Museum 2005-2009. Quesada has coordinated numerous exhibitions including, YLA 12: Embracing Chaos on behalf of Mexic-Arte Museum at the inauguration of The Mexican American Cultural Center Austin in 2007 and Del Otro Lado in Houston for the Art League of Houston in conjunction with Chase Bank in 2008.

Quesada, originally from Laredo and Eagle Pass, has lived in Boston, Los Angeles and Del Rio. He currently lives in Austin, Texas and is a Master Instructor at the Mexican American Cultural Center.

News From Bizarro Artworld

This article from a year ago from the Associated Press, chronicles the misadventures of a sculptural piece by artist, Paul McCarthy. Just in case you missed it, take a look.

Flying dog poo art causes museum chaos in Switzerland

GENEVA (AFP)- A giant inflatable dog turd by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum said Monday.

The art work, titled "Complex S(expletive)", is the size of a house. The wind carried it 200 metres (yards) from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children's home, said museum director Juri Steiner.

The inflatable turd broke the window at the children's home when it blew away on the night of July 31, Steiner said. The art work has a safety system which normally makes it deflate when there is a storm, but this did not work when it blew away.

Steiner said McCarthy had not yet been contacted and the museum was not sure if the piece would be put back on display.

Now that you read this article insert any appropriate poo jokes or statements.

S*** Happens
McCarthy's work is full of crap.
When everyone's power went out, the s*** hit the fan (or window).
Free Mr. Hanky!
The safety system didn't work? No S*** Sherlock!
I bet the children really got the crap scared out of them.
The museum wants to make sure this doesn't happen a turd time.
I've seen a housefly. I've seen a dragonfly. I've even seen butterfly, but I've never seen crap fly.

I know, I know, I'll stop it now.

Talk to you later,
