Transformations
work by artist John Humphries
January 11 - February 16, 2019
Opening Reception: Friday, January 11 | 6-8 p.m. 

"Drawings have two dimensions. Or, could have three if we add depth to the plane: it is not impossible. Space has three dimensions. Or, could have four if we dared to add a story, a narrative, or memory: it is not impossible. 

In order to convey a more complete image of a complex shifting situation the artist borrows from the Beaux-Arts tradition of analytique drawings which simultaneously included perspectival, orthographic, and conceptual images at various scales within the picture frame...The drawings utilize themes and organizational devices from landscapes, historical narratives, and built environments."

In recent years the world of furniture design has been completely transformed. Once a fairly restrictive field in which form tended to follow function, it is today one of the most dynamic of all creative disciplines. Across a wide range of approaches - sometimes powered by new technology, sometimes simply by their imaginations - artists and designers alike are dramatically expanding the possibilities for furniture. This exhibition focuses exclusively on cutting-edge chair forms, including works by Ron Arad, Wendell Castle, Shiro Kuramata, Humberto and Fernando Campana, and Gaetano Pesce, Donald Judd and John Chamberlain; as well as Joris Laarman, whose high-tech and high-concept designs are shown in particular depth.  

Guest Curated by Marc Benda of Friedman Benda and Glenn Adamson.

Supported in part by a grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.

Take Up Space presents abstraction as it travels across floors, hangs on walls, and is suspended above stairwells. Abstraction runs throughout this space, exploring and becoming territory. The works – mostly paintings – are results of artists’ projects that consider the relevance and power of abstraction’s possibilities.

The works in these galleries respond: to architecture, to history, to color, to taste, to edges, to time, and to our sociopolitical climate. They are explorations of form. They require us to notice their experimentation. They charge us to take the color, shapes, and scale of their structures into account.

Artists include Sarah Cain, Lita Albuquerque, Zachary Armstrong, Sarah Crowner, Tomory Dodge, Tomashi Jackson, Pamela Jorden, Odili Donald Odita, and Jackie Saccoccio.

Supported in part by a grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council.

Floyd Cooper’s powerful children’s book illustrations depict a fictional account by Aaron Reynolds of Rosa Parks’ 1955 refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in this exhibition at Columbus Museum of Art. Parks’ arrest led to a 13-month boycott of city buses. The boycott ended when the US Supreme Court ruled that segregation on public transportation was unconstitutional. In Cooper’s story, readers witness Rosa Parks’ arrest through the eyes of a young, African American boy, who was also on the bus that day. Cooper illustrates the story with a technique in which he removes areas of paint from his oil washes with a stretchy eraser. He calls this method a “subtractive process.” Accompanying the original art for the book are story boards and preliminary drawings. Back of the Bus (Philomel Books, 2010) was designated a Notable Book of 2011 by the National Library Association.
