Katy Siegel and I had hoped to include Gerald Jackson’s work in an exhibition for which I was the advisor and Katy the curator, “High Times, Hard Times: New York Painting 1967-1975”. But we could not find a way to get in touch with Gerald. Then, when I was visiting the exhibition at the National Academy Museum, Gerald was there. Shortly after, he sent me a DVD of a recent performance that just astounded me. In the third Studio Show Gerald will present this DVD with the painting included in the performance, and earlier work on skids from the ‘80s.
“I think that my experience growing up in America was a really black and white experience. The only color I think I really saw, that I thought was color, was on TV, commercials, or a different view of America – that America was in color and my world was in black and white.” -– Gerald Jackson
In the lunchroom there will be an exhibition, curated by Peter Soriano, of drawings by Michael Heizer, Donald Judd, Sol Lewitt, Lee Lozano and Richard Serra. The exhibition asks questions about the nature of “working drawings”.
Rey Akdogan has curated a related exhibition in the office, mostly of sculptures from the ’70s, including works by Nancy Arlen, Lillian Ball, Bill Bollinger, Lee Lozano, Judy Pfaff, and Alan Shields.
The Studio Show will also be open to the public on Sunday, June 13th, and Saturday, June 19th, from 1 to 6 PM, and at other times by appointment. Please contact the studio if you have any questions.
We hope you can come to the opening and please feel free to forward this invitation to your friends! We will serve beer and wine.
