ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 25, 2018 - The Bonsack Gallery is hosting Zeuler Lima's Found in Translation. The exhibition is an abridged version of Lima's recent solo show at the Brazilian Embassy in Tokyo.
Through drawings and conceptual artworks - ranging from traditional sketchbooks to three-dimensional objects, and from artist's books to multiple panels - the exhibition explores the translation, limits and overlaps among different cultural and artistic sensibilities.
Lima trained as an architect, landscape architect and urbanist. His artistic practice focuses on the language of drawing with training in painting, printmaking and bookmaking. With a postdoctoral education in comparative literature, he is also an accomplished writer as well as a designer, educator and scholar with interest in a humanistic approach to the built environment.
An associate professor at Washington University's Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, Lima teaches design studio and history-theory courses in the graduate and undergraduate programs, including the Florence Spring Program, the Architecture Study Abroad Program, and the cross-disciplinary course Urban Books. He has also taught at University of São Paulo, Ecole d'Architecture de Grenoble, Columbia University (New York), University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) and Hosei Daigaku (Tokyo).
Lima is also the author of the acclaimed biography Lina Bo Bardi about the Italian-born Brazilian architect (Yale University Press, 2013). He has served on several curatorial advisory committees, including the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Museu da Casa Brasileira (São Paulo), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Los Angeles), the Architekturmuseum (Munich) and the Johann Jacobs Museum (Zurich).
Found in Translation runs through Wednesday, January 16, 2019. The Bonsack Gallery is a not-for-profit educational gallery on the campus of John Burroughs School. Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays. For more information, contact Donya Allison (Fine Arts) at 314/993-4045, ext. 229, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Saint Louis Art Museum Presents New Works by "Kehinde Wiley"
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The Saint Louis Art Museum is present "Kehinde Wiley," a free exhibition of 11 commissioned portraits of people the artist met during a 2017 visit to St. Louis. The exhibition will be on view in galleries 249 and 250 through Feb. 10, 2019.
Kehinde Wiley creates large-scale oil paintings of contemporary African-American subjects that address the politics of race and power in art. Recalling the grand traditions of European and American portraiture, Wiley depicts his models in poses adapted from historic paintings.
Wiley studied the Saint Louis Art Museum collection to identify works he would reference in the exhibition. During a 2017 visit to St. Louis, he invited people he encountered in neighborhoods in north St. Louis and Ferguson to pose for the paintings.
"Kehinde uses works in the Saint Louis Art Museum's collection as a starting point for observations about race and representation throughout the history of art," said Brent R. Benjamin, the Barbara B. Taylor Director of the Saint Louis Art Museum. "We are extraordinarily honored to collaborate with Kehinde on this exhibition."
Wiley is the first African-American artist to paint an official portrait of a U.S. President for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. The portrait of Barack Obama was unveiled in February. (The National Portrait Gallery simultaneously unveiled a portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama painted by Amy Sherald, whose exhibition is on view at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis.)
Wiley has held solo exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum (2015), the Jewish Museum in New York (2012), the Columbus Museum of Art (2006), and the Studio Museum in Harlem (2008), among others. His works are included in such public collections as the Denver Art Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Seattle Art Museum, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
Wiley will discuss the exhibition and his practice in the museum's Farrell Auditorium during the opening weekend of the exhibition. Details, including ticket information, will be available this summer.
"Kehinde Wiley" is curated by Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art, and Hannah Klemm, assistant curator of modern and contemporary art, with Molly Moog, research assistant. The exhibition is supported by a grant from the Trio Foundation of St. Louis.
