590 N Mill Street, Aspen
June 6–September 7, 2014

Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (born 1964) has achieved international acclaim for his large-scale, immersive environments that alter and heighten our perceptions of our surroundings. Spanning both AAM upper and lower galleries, Neto’s exhibition will present visitors with two separate installations and an opportunity to slow down and rediscover the essential qualities of sensory experience. 

NOTE: Ernesto Neto’s AAM exhibition will be the last to be featured in the museum’s current facility. The artist is also the recipient of the AAM’s 2014 Aspen Award for Art, which will be presented on August 2, 2014 during the museum’s annual summer ArtCrush benefit event.

Roof Deck Sculpture Garden
August 9–October 5, 2014

Gallery One
SHIGERU BAN: Humanitarian Architecture
August 9–October 5, 2014

Beginning with his pioneering designs for United Nations refugee shelters in the mid-1990s, 2014 Pritzker winning architect Shigeru Ban has devoted himself to humanitarian efforts in the wake of some of the most devastating natural and manmade disasters of the past two decades.  Unlike traditional architecture exhibitions, where structures and concepts are communicated primarily through drawings, renderings, and scale models, Shigeru Ban: Humanitarian Architecture will center on full-scale examples of Ban’s groundbreaking designs, allowing the viewer to walk around as well as enter into these structures.

Galleries Two and Three
August 9–November 30, 2014

An unprecedented coupling of two of the most significant artists of our time, Yves Klein and David Hammons will consist of select bodies of work by each artist that explore points of aesthetic harmony between their practices. While not the intention of the exhibition to point to notions of “influence” or direct correlations, it will focus on resonances that point to ways in which these two important figures can be understood as performing a kind of aesthetic alchemy—investing even the humblest of materials with deep significance.

Galleries Four and Five
August 9–October 26, 2014

Tomma Abts’s paintings and drawings are created through a rigorous working process that combines the rational with the intuitive. Her AAM exhibition will be the first to survey her drawing practice, including new works created specifically for the exhibition. Abts was the winner of the prestigious 2006 Turner Prize.

Gallery 6
August 9–October 26, 2014

One of the most influential artists of the last thirty years, Rosemarie Trockel is renowned for the diversity of her oeuvre and for her sustained engagement with questions of feminism, the shifting historical relationship between the fine and applied arts, the professional and the amateur creator, and the relationship between humans and the natural world. Trockel’s exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum will offer a focused look at her groundbreaking and multifaceted engagement with ceramics.

Street-Level Plaza/Exterior of the AAM
JIM HODGES: With Liberty and Justice for All
August 9–January 2015

With a history of creating text-based art, New York-based Jim Hodges has exhibited widely throughout the U.S. and abroad with work featured in the permanent collections of the world’s leading museums of modern and contemporary art. For the New AAM, Hodges will premiere With Liberty and Justice For All, a new text-based outdoor installation on the street level plaza running along the South Spring Street and East Hyman Avenue sides of the building. Like many of Hodges’ works, With Liberty… will allow the viewer to ponder their personal relationship to a familiar yet powerfully charged philosophical notion, writ large in this vibrant public space.

Bernard Langlais
July 19, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Curated by Hannah Blunt

Known for his monumental wall reliefs and sculptures of animals from the 1970s, Maine-born artist Bernard Langlais (1921–1977) produced a rich and diverse oeuvre in his 56 years. From modernist painter to visionary environment builder, Langlais created art driven by a deep sense of place, and an unrelenting search for materials and subjects that reconciled his rural roots with postwar artistic movements and ideologies. In celebration of an extraordinary bequest by the artist's widow, Helen Friend Langlais, of her estate to Colby College in 2010, the Colby College Museum of Art will present the first scholarly retrospective of Langlais's dynamic career. The exhibition is drawn primarily from the Museum's Bernard Langlais Collection and also presents loans from several local museums and private collections, a testament to Maine's deep holdings in the art of this native son.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a richly illustrated monograph with essays by Hannah W. Blunt, Diana Tuite, Vincent Katz, and Leslie Umberger.

Lois Dodd: Cultivating Vision
June 7 - August 31, 2014
Curated by Ramey Mize

In 2010 the Colby College Museum of Art received more than seventy works on paper spanning from the 1960s to the early 2000s by post-war American figurative artist Lois Dodd. For the first time, the drawings, watercolors, and prints of this extraordinary gift will be accessible to the public, providing visitors the opportunity to experience Dodd's work through mediums other than the oil painting for which she is best known. Three main themes will be featured: the body, the landscape, and the cityscape. The delicate and the massive meet in these drawings, and Dodd's formal approach to the architecture of figures, buildings, and natural forms offers viewers a meditation on monumentality, ephemera, and the lived human experience.

David Nash: From Kew Gardens to Meijer Gardens
Friday, May 23—Sunday, August 17, 2014
For internationally renowned sculptor David Nash, the use of wood—and by extension the science and anthropology of trees—has proven central to his acclaimed repertoire. Whether through cutting, charring, casting or planting, trees have been the singular resource for nearly all of his sculptural pursuits, equally serving as the source of inspiration for his drawings and documentaries. This monumental exhibition is organized by Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in cooperation with the artist; the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Galerie Scheffel, Bad Homburg, Germany; and Haines Gallery, San Francisco.

Watch Me Move: The Animation Show
June 6–Sept. 1, 2014
In 1911, American cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay prefaced his short film Little Nemo with the invitation to “Watch Me Move,” introducing a cast of colorful characters in a playful promenade. This exhibition uses these same words to invite visitors to a celebration of animation. Watch Me Move is the most extensive exhibition ever mounted to present the full range of animated imagery produced in the last 120 years. Presenting animation as a highly influential force in the development of global visual culture, the exhibition explores the relationship between animation and film.

Cutting across generations and cultures, Watch Me Move features over 100 works, from iconic clips to lesser-known masterpieces. It brings together industry pioneers, independent film-makers and contemporary artists including Étienne-Jules Marey, Harry Smith, Jan Švankmajer, William Kentridge and Nathalie Djurberg alongside the creative output of commercial studios such as Walt Disney, Aardman, Studio Ghibli and Pixar.

Watch Me Move: The Animation Show is organized by Barbican Centre, London. The Barbican Centre is provided by the City of London Corporation.

  Maira Kalman: The Elements of Style
June 6–Sept. 1, 2014
This exhibition features paintings on paper by Maira Kalman that were used to illustrate a 2007 re-publication of the authoritative American English writing style guide The Elements of Style by William Strunk and E.B. White. Kalman’s illustrations whimsically embody the didactic examples of grammar rules and their breakage provided by this essential text for writers. Phrases like “But animals do not comprise (‘embrace’) a zoo—they constitute a zoo” and “None of us is perfect” inspired Kalman’s visual witticisms. Her use of flattened space, strong colors and childlike figures provide an enjoyable lesson in both literary and visual literacy.

Maira Kalman: The Elements of Style is organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville.

  Real/Surreal: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art
June 27–Oct.12, 2014
A survey of works from the 1920s to 1960s drawn from the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Real/Surreal looks at the way in which many American artists represented reality as a subjective and malleable state of mind rather than a fixed truth. Influenced by European Surrealists of the 1920s like Salvador Dalí and René Magritte, some American artists used the tools of illusionistic representation to subvert reality entirely, while others subtly tweaked the conventions of realism, turning the familiar into something unsettling and uncanny. The exhibition includes works by Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, Grant Wood, Man Ray and Thomas Hart Benton, among others.

Real/Surreal is organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

The Frist Center is supported in part by the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, the Tennessee Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts."

Marisol: Sculpture and Works on Paper
June 14 – September 7, 2014

Curated by the Brooks Museum’s Chief Curator, Marina Pacini, and inspired by Marisol’s mixed-media sculpture The Family, which was commissioned by the Brooks in 1969, the exhibition elucidates Marisol’s artistic evolution, both in terms of subject matter and materials. Among the themes explored are Marisol’s myriad influences (Neo-Dada, Surrealism, American and Latin American folk art, Pre-Columbian art, etc.); her relationship to postwar art and cultural movements (Pop, Minimalism, and Feminism); her experimentation with materials; her extensive use of portraiture; her politically charged sculptures; and her identity as a female artist who was born in Paris of Venezuelan parents and lived most of her life in New York City. Marisol: Sculpture and Works on Paper seeks to introduce new and diverse audiences to the artist, while re-establishing her as a major figure in postwar American art. The national tour begins at the Brooks Museum in June 2014 before traveling to El Museo del Barrio in New York City. A catalogue, co-published by Yale University Press, is available worldwide.

The works in the exhibition invite alternative encounters, encouraging audiences to consider their relationship to the works and surrounding environment.  The exhibition is accompanied by a series of programs that respond to the show's themes through different art forms, including music, performance, and literature.

The structure will serve as a space for outdoor performances, social gatherings, and public education programs in the Grand Center neighborhood of St. Louis, May 9 - October 5.

Bay Area Now 7
Jul 18-Oct 5, 2014
The visual arts component of Bay Area Now 7 has been reconceived through an open and rigorous selection process. By inviting noncommercial, small-to mid-size regional visual arts organizations to curate site-specific projects with Bay Area artists in YBCA’s galleries, we are making visible the rich complexity of our many arts communities. Using an art fair style format in which the selected participants curate projects for specific locations throughout an exhibition space, BAN7 celebrates visual arts organizations as vital players in the local arts ecology. The exhibition aims to foster increased appreciation for Bay Area art, artists, and organizers, and to promote a greater understanding of the vast range of practices and individual visions that make the Bay Area such a vibrant center for contemporary art.
