Renee Piechocki, Brandon Forrest Frederick
Renee Piechocki, Brandon Forrest Frederick ? May 24 - September 9, 2019 Location: Bubbler Gallery, Star Store Campus The video stations above the water fountains, so called "bubbler" are presenting the work by Brandon Forrest Frederick and Renee Piechocki. Brandon Forrest Frederick 's 2017 video, Yard Maintenance / Perpetual Motion , is inspired by witnessing the futility of using a leaf blower on a windy day, this video references the human desire to structure uncontrollable forces. Brandon Forrest Frederick is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and organizer based in Kansas City, Missouri. His work explores many relational aspects to living in a capitalistic and consumption based society. In using images, videos, sculptures, and found objects he looks to reveal poetic and poignant moments within the everyday and provide a new sense of agency in the act of disruption. To that effect he uses humor, performative gestures, models of reproduction, image making, community collaboration, and moments of civic imagination, organization, and reinterpretation. Each of these points of interaction facilitate a multi-faceted approach to dealing with the inequities of our current situation while learning to cope within the peculiar humor of it all. Renee Piechocki 's 2019 video and stop motion animation Between Forest and Cabin , was developed during an artist residency on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Alone in a cabin in the woods for two weeks, she spent time listening and watching, recording sounds and images in the forest. The artist states that "the video captures changes in the wind, light, and my comfort level." In addition to her studio practice, Renee Piechocki is engaged with collaborative projects as an artist and public art consultant. She is based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and graduated from Hunter College with a degree in Studio Art.

Spencer Finch: Wind (Through Emily Dickinson's Window)

Spencer Finch: Wind (Through Emily Dickinson's Window) May 24 - September 9, 2019 Location: UMass Dartmouth Gallery 244, Star Store Campus, 715 Purchase Street, New Bedford, MA This exhibition introduces the work by well-known New York City based artist Spencer Finch to New Bedford audiences. His piece Wind (through Emily Dickinson's window, August 14, 2012, 3:22pm) is a re-creation of a summer breeze blowing through the window in the poet Emily Dickinson's bedroom in Amherst that the artist measured with an anemometer on site. Spencer Finch's watercolor drawings are based on videos of falling leaves whose paths he had traced. After the artist made the video recording, he collected leaves from under the tree and matched those colors with the watercolor. He says, "What I especially like about it is that the twists of the watercolor line as it gets thicker and thinner refer to the rotation and movement of the leaf as it descends from the tree." Spencer Finch is known to explore these kind of elusive and sensory experiences through his work-- from the color of a sunset outside of his motel room to the light in a Turner painting, using both a scientific approach to gathering data and a true poetic sensibility. Spencer Finch (born 1962, New Haven, Connecticut) has exhibited extensively, both in the US and internationally. He has a BA in comparative literature from Hamilton College and an MFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design. Recent major projects include Fifteen Stones (Ry?an-ji), an intervention in the International Pavilion at the Fundació Mies van der Rohe, Barcelona, Spain (2018); A Cloud Index, a site-specific commission for the new Elizabeth line station at Paddington in London (2018); Lost Man Creek, his project with the Public Art Fund, Brooklyn, NY (2016-2018); Trying To Remember the Color of the Sky on That September Morning, a special commission for the 9/11 Memorial, New York, NY (2014); and A Certain Slant of Light, The Morgan Library & Museum, New York, NY (2014). Significant solo exhibitions include Utah Museum of Fine Arts, Salt Lake City, UT (2018-2019); MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA (2017); Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, FL (2017); Seattle Museum of Art, WA (2017); Turner Contemporary, Margate, United Kingdom (2014); Rhode Island School of Design Museum of Art, Providence, RI (2012); Art Institute of Chicago, IL (2011); Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla, CA (2011); Emily Dickinson Museum, Amherst, MA (2011); Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
