Exhibition Reception: Thursday, July 20, 2017, 5:00–8:00pm
The Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art is pleased to announce American Genre: Contemporary Painting curated by artist, writer, and curator Michelle Grabner. Grabner is the Crown Family Professor of Art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
American Genre: Contemporary Painting is an exhibition built on a triad of traditional painting genres: still life, landscape, and portraiture. Fifty paintings by fifty American artists offers a critical balance to the conditions of atemporality, affected responses, and the material turn shaping much of contemporary painting discourse. Alternatively, this exhibition employs historically recognized groupings of subject and forms. Genres incorporate and invoke structures of knowledge by performing classification. Deeply embedded in everyday life, genre is conspicuous and powerful in its ability to chart historical continuity and differences through its organizing forces.
Artists include: Gina Beavers, Wendy Edwards, Dana DeGiulio, Francesca Fuchs, Hope Gangloff, Evan Gruzis, Magalie Guerin, Jessica Halonen, Jonn Herschend, Tucker Nichols, Aliza Nisenbaum, Roger White, Griff Williams, Kelly Williams, Emi Winter, Herman Aguirre, Lucas Ajemian, Deborah Brown, Kristin Calabrese, Susanna Coffey, Angela Dufresne, Andreas Fischer, Howard Fonda, Richard Hull, Jose Lerma, Keith Mayerson, Henry Taylor, Storm Tharp, Dan Attoe, Peter Barrickman, Amy Bennett, Ann Craven, Cynthia Daignault, Rackstraw Downes, Mari Eastman, Brad Killam, Eva Lundsager, Tyson Reeder, John Riepenhoff, Claire Sherman, Gail Spaien, Spencer Sweeney and Emily Sundblad.
This exhibition will include an exhibition catalog that also functions as a genre reader. The exhibition will close with a one-day symposium hosted by Maine College of Art on September 15, 2017.

Curated by Adrianne Rubenstein
Thursday, 27 April 2017, 6–9pm
27 April – 3 June 2017
68projects, Fasanenstraße 68, D-10719 Berlin
Opening Hours during Gallery Weekend
Friday, April 28: 11am – 9pm
Saturday & Sunday, April 29 & 30: 11am – 7pm
Following an invitation by 68projects the young US curator Adrianne Rubenstein selected 10 ambigious artists for the art exhibition We might not have a planet left soon during Gallery Weekend.
Asked about her decision on the line up Rubenstein answered with the following:
'I see art as a power that can change the world. The exhibition "We might not have a planet left soon" will bring together artists working in painting, sculpture and installation who have a hopeful vision for the future.
We acknowledge the problems with our planet and its people, the destruction of the environment and the natural world, which may eventually lead us to extinction. The show will be about the power of objects made by healers, seers and visionaries, it will underline the sacred and will serve as a gathering place to determine the way forward.
There will be a fair amount of outer space and night time references, along with abstraction that is colorful and otherworldly. There will be references to animals, nature and the spirit.'
The curator and some of the participating artists will be present during the opening on 27 April, 6-9pm.
We look forward to seeing you again.
My show runs from March 11-April 23rd, check it out if you're in Berlin!
