David B. Smith Gallery was thrilled to participate in the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in Miami, Florida this past week. The gallery featured works by Laura Ball, Christina Empedocles, Gregory Euclide, Paul Jacobsen, Hong Seon Jang, Kris Lewis, and Michael Theodore. A few works are still available and a selection of exhibited works can be viewed on our PULSE Miami exhibition page. Please contact the gallery to inquire about availability.
Excerpted: At Pulse, South Korean artist Hong Seon Jang, with Denver’s David B. Smith Gallery, had spent the whole day constructing Black Mirage, a towering, ethereal waterfall of spider web thin black threads — made with a hot glue gun — cascading over another transparent, ladder-like web of fishing line stapled to the wall. At the end of the fair, it will come down, too delicate to move.
“An idea doesn’t exist. Then you make it tangible form, then you take it down and it doesn’t exist any more,” Jang said. “Like magic.”
Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists for 2011-2012.
Since 1981, the Jerome Foundation has generously funded this fellowship program to significantly advance, artistically and critically, emerging visual artists in Minnesota. This past month the members of the Jerome selection panel–Bruce Charlesworth, assistant professor of film, video, and new genres at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; Miki Garcia, executive director of Contemporary Arts Forum Santa Barbara; and Cherise Smith, associate professor of art history and African and African diaspora studies at the University of Texas, Austin–reviewed a total of 236 applications.
The two works that Euclide presented to the selection panel will be available at the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in Miami, December 1 – 4, 2011. David B. Smith Gallery will be in booth A-103. Please visit us at the fair or contact the gallery for further information and availability.
We are also proud to share that Gregory Euclide is currently featured on MN Original. You may visit their site to view a short video with the artist.
