Pulled Resources is the collaborative team of Thomas Sturgill and Dan DeZarn. Originally using the tagline, “…swiftly constructing large, labor intensive projects in relatively short periods of time and with fairly modest budgets.”  They will share with the audience two current projects, Frack Follow and Community Camaro that take a longer more complex look at the ideas of commodity, resource, environment, and material usage. Both are umbrella pieces that facilitate entirely new bodies of work and directions of investigation and action.

Michelle Grabner @ STUDIO Visits!

Rocket Gallery, Michelle Grabner

This week’s guest at STUDIO Visits is Chicago artist, writer, curator, Michelle Grabner. When she writes about her own work, here’s what she says,

“My work consists of identifying, indexing, and transposing patterns. I also build elemental compositions that are foundational to the language of abstraction. These works take the form of painting, drawings, paper weavings, photographs, and stitchery. I am most concerned with enacting rudimental organization, articulating notations and embracing repetition. I believe that these dedicated activities are progressive and principled.”

Since 1999 she has co-directed The Suburban, an artist project space in Oak Park, Illinois. Since 1999 The Suburban has hosted over 150 artist projects.  (thesuburban.org)

Join us at 9am this Wednesday in Nevins to learn more about Michelle Grabner!

A Special STUDIO VISITS!

Studio Visits will welcome Stan Shellabarger + Dutes Miller for a special edition of the Wednesday morning lecture and talk show next week April 13, 2011 at 9am in Holmes, Harder Hall. In addition, they will be creating a new performance on campus in the days that follow! More about this to come!

Photo: Untitled (Grave), Debuted at the Volta art fair in Basel in 2008, Miller & Shellabarger dug, in close proximity to each other, two holes, deep and large enough for each man to lie in. They then dug a small tunnel between the holes that enabled them to hold hands while lying in the graves. (Thanks to Western Exhibitions for the photo.)

Katy Asher LIVE @ STUDIO VISITS!

STUDIO Visits welcomes Katy Asher this week! Katy Asher investigates how audiences create shared meaning around ideas of place through her work in groups and facilitation of participatory events. She recently co-founded Portland Stock, a monthly public dinner event and presentation series which funds small to medium-sized artist projects in Portland, Oregon. Past collaborations include work with art groups Red76, The M.O.S.T. and The Committee.

Drum roll please…

Next week we will be welcoming artist Joshua Bienko to Studio Visits, the Wednesday morning lecture series and LIVE interview show! He will start off the morning in Holmes at 9 am with his lecture: Desiring le’Con. After a quick stage change, Michelle Illuminato and Brett Hunter will be interviewing Joshua in front of you, the LIVE audience.

Joshua Bienko’s work combines the style of the Flemish masters with the ironic wit of an astute social critic. His precise execution of technique is more of an authentic mental exercise than an emotionally driven expression. What emerges is a heartfelt distance from his subject. His videos, photographs, paintings, interactive sculptures, audio tracks and drawings are nationally and internationally exhibited. Faculty in the Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University.
