Off The Grid was guest curated by Caroline Blum, an independent curator and artist.

Notes on Off The Grid by David Reisman:

From Excel spreadsheets to Google maps; from the tiles on the subway floor to the electrical systems that make the subway possible, grids are so much a part of our daily experience that they are sometimes ignored or taken for granted. Historically, artists have used grids as tools and as source material; for their practical applications for working out compositions and proportions; and as a means for enlarging and manipulating images in the pre-Photoshop era. Modernist abstract artists like Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, and Sol Lewitt were attracted to grids for their own sake, for their austere, no-nonsense quality that could simultaneously suggest modernity, mathematical thought and an aesthetic idealism reflecting a desire for human progress. More recent artists use grids in a more self-conscious, humorous, introspective or ironic way, showing some of the limits and possibilities of progressive ideas in current art. (more…)

Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening at Ivy Brown Gallery

Sunday, September 1st, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery invites you to explore the mystery and intrigue behind Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening Tuesday, September 10, 6-8pm.

Few know that the origins of the Bermuda Triangle myth began in New York City on a triangular piece of land that eventually became the foundation of the Triangle Building in the Meatpacking District.

Mystery and intrigue has long surrounded the Triangle Building, but the truly fantastical stories pre-date the building by thousands of years to the time of the ancient Aurora-Rhomans. Joshua Goode is currently excavating the ruins of a pre-historic zoo deep below the foundations of the Triangle Building that held creatures believed to live solely in the imagination. Majestic bronze sculptures of these mythical creatures and ornate altarpieces were left as prayer offerings which also included ritual human sacrifice.  (more…)

Animals are Good to Think With at Guns & Rain Gallery

Monday, April 1st, 2019

It’s hard to believe that almost exactly a year ago, Guns & Rain opened their new space in Parkhurst, Johannesburg. They are please to present their quirky and provocative new group show, “Animals are Good to Think With”,  featuring Ann Gollifer (Botswana), Vernon Reed (South Africa), Tawanda Takura (Zimbabwe) and Rosemarie Marriott (South Africa).

In 1962, French structural anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss, in his work on totemism, coined the famous – now even clichéd – phrase that “animals are good to think with”. He argued that animals were not simply good to eat; nor were they simply objects of identification or symbolism, but rather part of a structure of human thinking that was common across all societies.

The exhibition is ongoing through April 12th.
