College Art Association – 2011

02.14.11

I just returned from a great week in New York at the College Art Association conference and between the bagels, slices and beer there were some amazing art exhibitions and lectures. Here were some of the highlights!

I was extremely fortunate to have the chance to see the US premiere of Christian Marclay‘s groundbreaking new 24-hour video work The Clock at Paula Cooper Gallery! The gallery was holding 24-hour screenings on the weekend and I was able to catch the piece at 5pm and 3am. It is an incredible durational video that appropriates footage from cinema and television and if I had the time I would have stayed for more. It is on view from January 21 – February 19, 2011 so if you can go check it out!

I also had the privilege of seeing Arturo Herrera‘s groundbreaking installation Les Noces (The Wedding), the artist’s first work to incorporate music and moving images at the Americas Society Art Gallery. It is on view from Thursday, February 3 – Saturday, April 30, 2011 so go check it out if you can!

Some great lectures at the conference included [Meta] Mentors: Great Art Cities with Rebecca Cummins from the University of Washington in Seattle and Defining the Southmost Border: What is American, Mexican, or Neither with David Taylor from New Mexico State University. I was able to get a signed copy of David’s new book Working the Line a photographic examination of the contentious territory that is the U.S./Mexico border. I had the fortune of hearing David speak a few years back at SPE and it is great to see his important work come to completion!
