Monuments


"What I did was, go out to the fringes. I picked a point in the fringes and collected some raw material. The making of the piece is really about collecting. The container is the limit it exists (in) within the room after I return from the outer fringes." -Robert Smithson

Double-Bill
By  David Freedlander on Feb 23, 2010

It has been 42 years since Robert Smithson took an Inter-City Transportation Company Bus at the Port Authority to Passaic, N.J.

In his ambulatory meditations, Smithson cheekily compared the wrecked landscape to ancient Rome. His vision was cinematic, it delineated a new way of artistic interaction with the urban environment in tension with the suburban one, and it became a founding document of minimalism.

Through Mar. 20, Smithson’s work, and that of his contemporaries Dan Graham and Gordon Matta-Clark, gets a reworking at Double-Bill, an enlivening show at Art in General.

The centerpiece of the show is a movie about the journey the three of them take back to New Jersey. The old sites of their Monuments have grown derelict, wrecked by industrial decline in a way unforeseen to the artists when they began their careers five decades ago. The house that Matta-Clark once sawed in two has become an office park. Skateboarders zoom by. When one falls and cuts himself, Matta-Clark comically explores the “rupture.” “Surfaces,” he says, looking at the wound, “are too easily accepted as limits.”

Minimalism and post-minimalism have had a longer life in the seminar room than in the gallery, and the characters in Monuments are as much theories as artists; they travel through the area staring impassively at places where once they projected their art and reveling in their theories of art and urbanism.

“The museum and the city and the same,” intones Dan Graham. “My work has always been about the relationship between the city and the suburb.”

The show also features Rafael Sánchez and Kathleen White’s “BOOKS RECORDS TAPES.” It is a long table featuring stacks of for-sale books, sheet music, chapbooks and magazines of the kind found all over the city where vendors are still given reign. The ventures of Smithson et al matter because they expanded the definition of art and pointed out new ways of seeing, Sánchez and White’s seemingly dashed together collections of materials re-realizes that vision.

Ishtar












































This large plaque was made of baked straw-tempered clay, modeled in high relief. The figure of the curvaceous naked woman was originally painted red; note the trace of the red color on her left wrist. She wears the horned headdress characteristic of a Mesopotamian deity and holds a rod and ring of justice, also symbols of her divinity. Her long multi-colored wings hang downwards, indicating that she is a goddess of the Underworld. The background was originally painted black, suggesting that she was associated with the night.


The figure could be an aspect of the goddess Ishtar , Mesopotamian goddess of sexual love and war, or Ishtar's sister and rival, the goddess Ereshkigal who ruled over the Underworld, or the demoness Lilitu, known in the Bible as Lilith. The plaque probably stood in a shrine.

Old Babylonian period, 1800-1750 BCE, from southern Iraq (place of excavation is unknown), Mesopotamia. (The British Museum, London).

GERSHWIN LIVE: ALLUPINIT VOL. VL – THE POEMS OF GYPSY JOE 


Edited by Rafael Sánchez & Kathleen White




























ABOUT THIS SHOW

Gershwin Live is an evolving 21st century salon, artists with fearless & distinctive voices are given free rein to present theater, dance, film, cabaret, ghost stories, music & uncategorizable hybrids. Curated by Michael Wiener & Neke Carson.


ABOUT THE ARTISTS


Gypsy Joseph Cvetetic hails from Montgomery, Alabama. His poems & rhyme stories have flowed like a river though his travels around the globe. He met future alLuPiNiT cofounder & editor Kathleen White in the East Village performance scene of the 1980’s. Production of alLuPiNiT Vol. Vl was interrupted when Kathleen White was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in the summer of 2013. It was Kathleen’s wish that the magazine continue. This event celebrates the first alLuPiNT release since Kathleen’s passing in the fall of 2014.
alLuPiNiT grew out of the collaborative energies of artists Rafael Sánchez & Kathleen White. The team stewarded an outdoor bookstand on Hudson Street in post 9/11 NYC. That project blossomed into a situational confluence of art, citizenry & conversation. alLuPiNiT, NYC was formed as a 501(c)3 in 2008 as a forum for extended collaboration with a family of artists working in every imaginable medium & discipline. The stand, magazine, readings & other works have been presented with Art in General, El Museo del Barrio & in MoMA’s 2012 exhibition Millennial Magazines.
