Check out the show "SPEED" with works of ADEMEIT and BENDER

Opening Sat 30 Jun 2018, 7pm
We are looking forward to the opening at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart

"There is a collaborative impulse behind James Richards and Leslie Thornton’s SPEED, one that renders the lone paranoid monologue of anxious speculation into a dialogic practice. In the process of realising SPEED, Richards and Thornton have been concerned with a number of psychic and temporal states, rushes of interconnectedness and scientific wonder, as well as a sense of ecological dread and anxiety. The exhibition takes the form of two major new commissions by Richards and Thornton, alongside a show-within-the-show convened by Richards with works by Horst Ademeit, Adelhyd van Bender, Bruce Conner, Emily Feather, Terence McCormack, Jeff Preiss and Jens Thornton.

There is an atmosphere of obsessive energy in SPEED, a recurring fascination with rays, of systematic sorting and recording of experience, and with mind altering effects and rituals. A number of the works in the group exhibition were made against a backdrop of apprehension and self-destruction during the Cold War. There is a sense of frantic repetition, labour and a command to activity, which van Bender described as ‘Divine Drudgery’. It is a spirit also present in Bruce Conner’s psychedelic inkblot drawings. The oscillation between an ordering impulse, and the relinquishing of control is a recurring feature of SPEED, one that appears both in the group exhibition and in the newly realised works..."

DERRICK ALEXIS COARD
Bearded Black Men
June 7 – July 21, 2018
Opening: Thursday June 7th, 5 – 9 pm


"I was born in Brooklyn, NY in year 1981, being single-parented by my mother. At the age of 4, I started to draw beyond a child’s natural ability. I was very gifted for my age. I had a fascination with New York City bridges at the time and I drew them quite well. My art evolved over the years as I’ve gotten older, and around my adolescence I started drawing images of bearded black men. Keep in mind that today my images are what you see all the time on African-American men. My art made me popular in Humanities and the Arts High School and well liked; art being my saving grace from GOD at the time, because I suffered from chronic severe depression as a youth. Which caused me to later on seek GOD in my youthful years, as life became more of a burden where I made several conscious and unconscious suicide attempts, I became infatuated with healing and spirituality. 

This outlet in reading the word of GOD (reading religiously about GOD that loved me no matter who I was and what I did through His Son Jesus Christ) really liberated me causing me to take less medication for psychosis; loving myself-others with divine purpose. The bearded look is the image GOD favored speaking through Moses, for men not to use razors, I later found out. Since then, 
I’ve been desiring a full beard and drawing men with beards in my years to come. I attended art classes to enhance my craft throughout my life. During high schoolI attended Saturday classes at F.I.T., summer school courses at Brooklyn Museum of Art, night classes at the Jamaica Art Center, 
I received knowledge from Katherine Gibbs School (Associates Degree in Visual Communications), after high school and hands-on Saturday Studio sessions at HAI in the latter days of my life. My art is my voice for the human race. I use bearded black men as symbolic expression for possible change for the African-American male community. Expressing to them that we as a black male people can be victorious, achieving needed healing and unity. I have respect and honor towards black women too, plus I sometimes draw black women as a form of reverence to God’s creation. But my main focus is the male portion. My work is a testimonial that black men can be seen in a more positive, righteous light."
Artist's statement for the Wynn Newhouse Awards, 2016

"In the current polarized landscape of American politics, where the aspirant Presidential candidate Donald Trump can call for a ban on Muslims traveling to the United States as the Black Lives Matter movement demands equality for African Americans in in the political process, Coard’s deeply empathetic work, which explores the complex questions of race, spirituality, sexuality, and identity, finds perhaps an even greater agency and sense of urgency."
Curator Matthew Higgs about Coard's exhibition in Glasgow, 2016

Derrick Alexis Coard died unexpectedly in August of 2017.
The exhibition is a collaboration with White Columns, New York

"It is always a thrill to discover such fully realized art..."

Hipkiss, Bulwark #8 (detail), 2017,
graphite, silver ink, silver tape, and metal leaf on paper, 89 x 16"
For Artforum: 
Matthew Weinstein on HIPKISS Show 
April 12 - August 6 in NY 

"It is always a thrill to discover such fully realized art—Hipkiss’s Alpha and Chris Mason have been making work together since 1983. Bulwark #5, 2017, is an accumulation of doily-shaped tondos. Elegant cascading squiggles safeguard delicate branches within. The branches appear to be releasing pollen or grasping for tiny flecks of life: sustenance against our intrusions."
