Tuesday October 15

Editor Leah Triplett's Pick!

Boston University, Jacob Sleeper Auditorium, 871 Commonwealth Ave.
Richard Aldrich
"Richard Aldrich is a Brooklyn-based painter and one of the most acclaimed young artists working today. He was featured in the 2010 Whitney Biennial and has been the subject of museum and gallery exhibitions in Tokyo, London, Basel, Brussels, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Aldrich is a keenly self-aware painter, his work laden with a constellation of literary and cultural references as well as references to painting’s contested, pluralistic history. He resists immediate categorization, instead moving deftly from one style to another with each work. Art in Review memorably described his approach as a "slackerish cosmopolitanism"—his paintings carry an attitude that is at once understated, unfinished, even provisional, yet wholly sincere and exuberant."

the Howard Art Project, 1486 Dorchester Ave, Dorchester, MA
Dell Hamilton: The Archive is Present: Practice, Process, and the Sticky Image
"Artist Dell Hamilton’s current projects and how they relate to the compelling and dynamic role of the archive in contemporary art. Whether a physical storage comprised of historical photographs, a collection of vintage magazines, the genealogical threads of familial history, or the scrap-booking tendencies of Pinterest, the need to record and catalogue the experiences and desires of the human condition are regularly evidenced within the nature of the archive. As a result, the archive provides artists with the tools to leverage these rich frameworks and re-imagine not only their practice but also conceptions of history, time, space, culture and art."

MIT, Wiesner Bldg (E15-001), Lower Level, 20 Ames Street, Cambridge, MA
lovett/codagnone: re-adapting cinematic traces
"As artistic practices broaden to embrace a variety of new media and expansive models such as cinema, theater, and music—practices that interrogate notions of authorship—the duo Lovett/Codagnone favor forms of cooperation as their source of inspiration. Mapping a work methodology and introducing new formats—their band, the staging of plays, and the casting of actors instead of themselves—they seek to critique their own practice."

"Sophie Calle: Last Seen will include Calle’s 1991 Gardner-inspired work on display for the first time at the Gardner, as well as new work created in 2012.
The 14 photographic and text based works in Last Seen consist of two distinct series. The first, created in 1991, titled Last Seen… is a series of photographs and texts created shortly after the 1990 theft during which 13 objects were stolen from the Museum. The second series, titled What Do You See? includes new work which Calle made in 2012 at the Museum while revisiting the earlier project." [Source: gardnermuseum.org]
