Apparitions: Frottages and Rubbings from 1860 to Now May31

Apparitions: Frottages and Rubbings from 1860 to N...

The technique known as frottage, from the French verb frotter, meaning “to rub,” is an automatic drawing method developed by the artist Max Ernst. It involves rendering an image by placing a sheet of paper over an object or dimensional surface and rubbing it with a marking agent such as graphite or wax crayon. This relatively simple procedure—which combines elements of drawing, printmaking, and sculpture—generates sophisticated and unexpected compositions that capture both the indexical and the more elusive properties of objects. The French poet and painter Henri Michaux coined the term apparitions for his frottages: images that are...

Employing a systems-based conceptualism that Gaines has long embraced and highlighting the enduring influence of composer John Cage’s experiments with chance, the new 12-part body of work brings together the score of a tragic love story, the opera La Vida Breve (c. 1904) by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla, and a fiery 1964 speech by the civil rights activist and Black Panther Party member Stokely Carmichael. The unexpected combination of music...

Lily van der Stokker Jun03

Lily van der Stokker

Dutch artist Lily van der Stokker has been making bold, colorful large-scale wall paintings for more than twenty years. The artist applies colors ranging from soft pastels to bright fluorescents—sometimes in playful and visually arresting plaid patterns or all-over flower motifs—to amorphous soft-edged forms that inhabit the space like friendly oversized visitors. Witty texts added alongside van der Stokker’s forms complicate their first impression as the cartoony doodles of an adolescent or mere decorative ornamentation. Invoking the platitudes of polite society with expressions like “Best regards” or “Wonderful” or touching upon the...
