Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic
November 24, 2013–July 6, 2014
One of the most important artists of the twentieth century, Alexander Calder revolutionized modern sculpture. Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic, with significant cooperation from the Calder Foundation, explores the artist’s radical translation of French Surrealist vocabulary into American vernacular. His most iconic works, coined by Marcel Duchamp as mobiles, are kinetic sculptures in which flat pieces of painted metal, connected by wire, move delicately in the air, propelled by motors or air currents. His later stabiles are monumental structures, whose arching forms and massive steel planes continue his engagement with dynamism and daring innovation. Although this will be his first museum exhibition in Los Angeles, Calder holds a significant place in LACMA’s history: the museum commissioned a major work by him for the building’s opening in 1965. This exhibition features installation design by architect Frank O. Gehry, and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with essays by exhibition curator Stephanie Barron as well as scholars Ilene Susan Fort, Aleca Le Blanc, Jed Perl, and Harriet Senie.
One of the most distinguished outdoor sculpture collections in the country, the Franklin D.

Early Cambodian Bronzes: The Pre-Angkor Period
Khmer sculptors produced figural images of divinities in response to the international religions—Hinduism and Buddhism—that had arrived in mainland Southeast Asia by the fifth century. Indian traders and traveling priests brought knowledge of Shiva, Vishnu, and other Hindu gods. Buddhist texts and images carried by Chinese pilgrims who passed through the region on their way to and from holy sites in India also had an influence on the Khmer.

The Angkor Period
The Angkor period began in the year 802. Khmer rulers established a sequence of capitals in the Angkor region, culminating in the walled complex of Angkor Thom built by Jayavarman VII (ruled 1181–about 1218). Successive monarchs built temples and monasteries to honor their ancestors and their own reigns—the monuments that visitors to Angkor see today.
Bronzes in the Reign of Jayavarman VII
Jayavarman VII (ruled 1181–about 1218) decisively shifted the prevailing religious balance in which the Buddha was worshipped alongside Hindu gods. He positioned the Buddha at the apex of a system that included Hindu gods in subsidiary roles, and the bronze images cast during his reign reflect this transformation.

Richmond Art Center’s Annual Members’
Show June 15 - August 23, 2013
This beloved annual exhibition features close to 100 artist-level
Richmond Art Center members. It also highlights the 2012 Members’
Showcase award winners: Koko Baker, Mira Benoni, Larry Hatfield,
Diana Shaio Keevan, Diane Levinson, Stella Ling and Nancy Rowe. This
exhibition celebrates and showcases the array of media, talent and
imagination that constitutes the heart of the Richmond Art Center’s
dynamic and creative community.
In the mid-1400s, many celebrated artists, goldsmiths, silversmiths and engravers were attracted by the abundance of wealth in the city of Florence, but the most important factor in this gathering of talent was the presence of the Medici family. For almost three hundred years, generation after generation of Medici dominated city affairs and steered the course of art history. It was the Medici family who funded the workshops of these artists and artisans, who commissioned and collected the masterpieces of art and antiquity. From founding father to the last Grand Duke, the immense power and wealth of this great dynasty was invested in its legendary collections, of which the collection renowned as the Gems of the Medici is perhaps the finest in the world.
Gems of the Medici, a world premier exhibition, highlights some of the oldest and most unique pieces of the Medici collections including antiquities dating from the 1st Century BCE as well as a cornelian which was part of the Seal of Nero.
This exhibition features the work of artists who
bring 21st-century urgency to 19th-century principles of virtue
through work and craftsmanship. Inspired in part by developments
that stem back as far as the Industrial Revolution, the presentation
examines contemporary culture’s obsession with authenticity, the
hand-crafted, and the politics of manufacturing and labor. Works in
the exhibition date from the late 1980s to the present, a period in
which artists turned from industrial fabrication and a seamless
aesthetic to hand-made or "do-it-yourself" sensibilities.
Labour and Wait is organized by Julie Joyce,
Curator of Contemporary Art, and features artists/artist
collaboratives from Europe, South America, and the United States,
many which are under-represented in museums on the West Coast.
Artists include Tonico Lemos Auad, Andrea Bowers, Colin Darke, Wim
Delvoye, Theaster Gates, Dewar and Gicquel, Fischli and Weiss, Tim
Hawkinson, Josiah McElheny, Grayson Perry, Mika Rottenberg, Allison
Smith, Ricky Swallow, David Thorpe, and Jane Wilbraham.

Origins: Interwar Italian Design
Opens September 27 2013
Wolfsonian-FIU, 1001 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach, FL
Echoes and Origins: Interwar Italian Design is
an exhibition of applied arts and design objects that
collectively evidence the dilemma of creating a unified national
identity faced by Italy in the 1920s and 1930s. Responding to
the demand for forms of expression that would integrate
tradition with revolutionary change, designers of the period
developed dramatically different strategies to convey varied
notions of Italian culture and identity. A selection of
furniture, ceramics, graphic and product design, and industrial
objects will offer a survey of the aesthetic pluralism embraced
by the Italian government in the interwar period. This position
was adopted to aid the state in turning a diverse population
into a common community, wedding notions of the Imperial Roman
past with the spirit and technology of modernity.
Echoes and Origins is made possible by the
Italian Consulate General in Miami and the Italian Cultural
Institute of New York, with additional support from the Poltrona
Frau Group Miami, Funding Arts Network, the Leon Levy
Foundation, and Ansaldo Energy Inc. We would also like to thank
Mitchell Wolfson, Jr., Marcello Cambi in Genoa, and the
Wolfsoniana–Fondazione Regionale per la Cultura e lo Spettacolo

C. Paul Jennewein

American architectural sculptor of the
mid-20th century. He immigrated to the
United States from Germany in 1907 and
within four years of his arrival began
receiving important national and
international art commissions that drew
upon his skills as an ornamental
sculptor and as a painter. He is widely
recognized for introducing the Art Deco
style into American architecture.

classical Greco-Roman tradition.

A Silver Lining
June 29 – November 9,
This exhibition will
showcase PMoA’s collection of Georgian
silver, which refers to the period of
the consecutive reigns of four English
kings: King George I (1714-1727; King
George II, son of George I (1727-1760);
King George III, grandson of George II
(1760-1820); and King George IV, son of
George III (1820-1830). This time does
not necessarily characterize a specific
style in English silver as it does a
time period when English silver became
immensely popular. The styles of
silverware varied throughout the
Georgian Period, with the simplest forms
produced through the reigns of George I
and George II. Midway through the reign
of George III, and lasting through the
duration of George IV’s reign,
silverwares styles became much more
ornate by comparison. Most of these
pieces were produced during the reign of
King George III. The simpler pieces were
produced during the early stages of the
king’s reign and the more ornate pieces,
during the latter years of his reign.
When England entered into war with the
American colonies during the late 18th
century, styles in silver became to be
far less ornate than the periods before
and after. Around the turn of the 19th
century, the style of English silverware
was the most ornate of any other period.
