Exhibitions

OnSite Katonah July 10 - October 2, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 9, 4-8PM

OnSite Katonah presents experimental, site-specific installations created in response to the Katonah Museum of Art’s distinctive landscape, architecture, and history. With projects boldly immersive and keenly subtle, artists investigate and reimagine every facet of the KMA’s location. Installations occupy the light-filled Sally and Volney Righter and Mary L. Beitzel Galleries; the Marilyn M. Simpson Sculpture Garden, with its towering Norwegian spruce trees; and the sloping greens of the Front and South lawns. These artistic interventions into our site transform the Museum’s physical space—which so deeply impacts the KMA’s institutional identity— into a platform for creative experimentation.

Artists include Grimanesa Amoros, Amy Brener, MaDora Frey, Keiran Brennan Hinton, Caitlin Masley, Caleb Nussear, Jason Peters, and Rachel Mica Weiss.

Victoria Fu, EggJuly 10 – October 2

Los Angeles-based artist Victoria Fu employs analogue and digital techniques to explore the impact of virtual aesthetics on the everyday human experience. While Fu typically works in film, light-projection, and photography, for the KMA she will create a site-specific building wrap, covering the Museum's front façade with one of her enigmatic, unexpected images. Fu's work was featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial and she is a recipient of the prestigious 2015 Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship. Egg will mark the artist's first solo project on such a monumental scale.


Egg is made possible by support from Anthony B. & Judith Evnin and Ginny & Martin Gold.

 

 


Aaron Curry, UGLY MESS On South Lawn
November 27, 2015 - September 14, 2016

Los Angeles-based artist Aaron Curry fuses his interests in the sculptures of Modernist artists such as Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, and Alexander Calder with his personal experiences of 1980’s mass media, and skating and graffiti culture. Composed of intersecting planes of aluminum painted with bright colors in a cartoon-like manner, UGLY MESS is an abstract, surreal sculpture that operates on the boundaries between Modern and contemporary, painting and sculpture, the geometric and figuration.

Organized by Katonah Museum of Art Associate Curator, Elizabeth Rooklidge.
