Two images from Carolyn Campbell’s Hollywood Boulevard series are included in “Hollywood & Fine”, a presentation of contemporary and historical fine art focused on Hollywood in all its ramifications. The Venice Institute of Contemporary Art (ViCA) partnered with A.G. Geiger Fine Art Books and opened a new Gallery located at 502 Chung King Road Los Angeles, CA 90012 to present “Hollywood & Fine”. The exhibiton is on view April 8 through May 20, 2017

Curator Juri Koll stated, “This show intends to place Hollywood in the spotlight as an important way of seeing the world -from the glitz, to the glamour, to the gutter, from the personalities to the pipe dreams, from stardom to stardust. We are presenting artists in the pantheon of well-known artists such as Edmund Teske and Andy Warhol’s legacy through his screens printed by Louie Waldon. We’re proud to be able to bring the show to the new space we’ve built at A.G. Geiger, in partnership with Michael Delgado and to present a catalog for the show.”

The show presents the following artists: Matt Aston, Jodi Bonassi, Carolyn M. Campbell, Chelsea Cody, Michael Delgado, Lisa Derrick, Corey Deshon, Sam Erenberg, Simone Gad, Tanner Goldbeck, Eva Hassmann, Juri Koll, Reginald Van Langenhove, Ofer, Mei Xian Qiu, Phil Santos, Elena Mary Siff, Sandy Shimooka, Mike Street, Stephanie Sydney, Edmund Teske, Louie Waldon/Andy Warhol.

GENDER NATURE

Honored to have my Gallery Tally image published in Macmillan’s “Gender / Nature” Interdisciplinary Handbook. Mary Kosut, Purchase College, State University of New York, Associate Professor of Sociology, Media, Society and the Arts and Gender Studies selected my work for her chapter on Nature in the Museum and the sub section, Getting into the Museum: Underrepresentation and Feminist Activism. Great description of Micol Hebron’s groundbreaking project (excerpts), “Its international success is a testament to grassroots activism and social networking and the scope and obdurate nature of sexism and racism in the arts.”… “Feminist collectives and activist art projects such as the Guerilla Girls and the Gallery Tally Project continue to challenge male dominance, white privilege, and other forms of exclusion and segregation in the arts”

My deepest thanks to Micol Hebron for inviting me to participate in the Gallery Tally Project.

NOW BE HERE

Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt began with a simple idea: Bring together a group of female artists from around Los Angeles for a group portrait — a way of recognizing the presence of women in a field that remains dominated by men. For her tribute, Schoenstadt says she was interested in acknowledging the countless female painters, sculptors, photographers and conceptualists who create work — whether it is acknowledged by art world institutions or not.  More than 700 artists gathered  in Hauser Wirth & Schimmel’s courtyard, in the downtown L.A. Arts District, for a group photo. “Now Be Here” — which included local artists, gallerists and curators was co-organized by Hauser Wirth & Schimmel’s Head of Education, Aandrea Stang. ‘Glad to have been a participant.

Hauser Wirth & Schimmel plans to release a digital copy of the group photograph on its website and by request. Schoenstadt will eventually provide local museums with archival copies of the image. There’s also a Facebook group to gather other group photos of artists; and Schoenstadt created a web page to serve as a “research portal” with photographs and documents from the event.

(En)Gendered (In)Equity: The Gallery Tally Poster Project – international traveling exhibition

Carolyn Campbell was invited to submit four works, which were exhibited in the galleries noted below.  Gallery Tally is a crowd-sourced, social engagement art project organized by Micol Hebron in which artists from around the world have joined the effort to collect and visualize statistical data regarding ratios of male and female artists in top contemporary art galleries. Artists were invited to make one posters for each gallery, in whatever style or medium they chose. Starting with galleries in Los Angeles, the second phase of the project  focused on galleries in New York and has now expanded to include Paris, Berlin, London, Chicago, Santa Fe, Portland, Pittsburg, and other cities.
