As you may have noticed, postings have been rather sporadic around here lately, to say the least. Over the past few months we have been preparing for the New York Moving Image fair, organizing the inaugural Armory Film presentation, and organizing our booth at The Armory Show. Oh, yeah, and we've been running the gallery all the while. To say we've been insanely, super, nearly bonkers busy is to employ an absurd degree of euphemism.
But...our extremely hard-working (if long-suffering) team has been stellar (really super thanks to Jay, Alex, Janet, Andrew, MTV, and the team of Moving Image interns!...you're all stars to Murat and me!) and as I sit here typing, on the cusp of it all, I find myself remarkably calm. Things are in very good shape.
Below you'll find more information about the events we're involved in over the next week. I can hardly imagine as it begins in earnest that I'll have any time to blog, but I look forward to more regular posts on the other side. Hope to see you at the fairs!
Moving Image, the contemporary video art fair, returns to New York's Waterfront Tunnel, March 8-11, 2012, with 31 artists presenting single-channel videos, sculptures, and installations represented by galleries from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, and North America. Moving Image was conceived to offer a viewing experience with the excitement and vitality of a fair, while allowing moving image-based artworks to be understood and appreciated on their own terms. For the 2012 edition, we are delighted to announce an expanded program of presentations and panels, including what promise to be very lively discussions on conservation and preservation of video artwork, the future of video art technology, and what you actually get when you buy video art.
Highlights of the 2012 New York program includes works by highly influential experimental filmmaker Ken Jacobs (presented by Electronic Arts Intermix, New York) and legendary pioneer of conceptual art, VALIE EXPORT (presented by Charim Galerie, Vienna, Austria). Along with a 2003 work by Zhang Peili (Saamlung, Hong Kong), widely considered the father of Chinese video art; a new work by renowned New York artist Mary Lucier (Lennon, Weinberg, New York), and an installation by the celebrated Estonian artist Jaan Toomik (Temnikova & Kasela Gallery, Tallinn, Estonia), these works reflect Moving Image's dedication to presenting historically important artworks (image below from Toomik's 2004 video, Seagulls).
Moving Image New York 2012 also presents several large-scale installations, including works by Martha Wilson (PPOW, New York), AES+F (Anna Schwartz Gallery, Melbourne/Sydney, Australia) Janet Biggs (Winkleman Gallery, New York), Josh Azzarella (DCKT Contemporary, New York), and Daniel Phillips (DODGEGallery, New York).
New works in the program by emerging artists include videos by Kate Gilmore (Braverman Gallery, Tel Aviv, Israel); Alex Prager ( Yancey Richardson, New York, NY); Jesse McLean (Interstate Projects, Brooklyn, New York); and Jesse Fleming (The Company, Los Angeles, CA; image below from Fleming's 2012 video, The Snail and the Razor).

Hidden Treasure: Special Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) Presentation on Video Preservation

Anthony Ramos’s rarely seen, politically charged performance videos of the early 1970s will be featured (with other seminal works) as examples of how preservation can result not only in technical restoration, but also in the restoration and illumination of forgotten histories.

(Booth 538, Pier 94)The Armory Show
Winkleman Gallery is pleased to present a Solo Project of new work by Jennifer Dalton at the 2012 edition of The Armory Show, to be held from March 8 – 11, 2012, on Pier 94 on Manhattan’s West Side. Our booth number is 536. This will be the first time that Winkleman Gallery has participated in The Armory Show.
Jennifer Dalton is well-known for her investigations into the nature of success in the art world and in the culture at large. Leavened with humor, her work often focuses on the biases inherent in the process by which winners and losers are chosen and the dilemmas presented by inevitable clashes of artistic ideals and market logic. Using a wide range of media and strategies that embrace the hand-made as well as the mass-produced, Dalton does not presume to answer the questions that she poses. Finding the most honest questions to ask is an end in itself.
Dalton created an entirely new body of work for Winkleman Gallery’s presentation at The Armory Show, including Paradox Party Favors, a work in which viewers are invited to fish a wrapped candy out through a small hole in a vitrine. Each candy wrapper is inscribed with one of four personal existential paradoxes inspired by the tension between the purity of theory and the reality of practice. The sweet offering to the audience, then, is not so much a gift as an invitation to consider the part that they themselves may play in the process by which art gains value.
Another work, Top Ten Collector-ibles 2011, is an updated look at a subject Dalton first visited in 2006. In this piece, an enclosed shelf is filled with ten mounted plastic superhero figurines representing the “top” ten collectors of art as defined by ArtNews in 2011. Each figurine, labeled with the collector's name and the source of his or her fortune, carries tiny hand-made shopping bags inscribed with the type of artwork collected, humorously transforming each of these people into tiny superheroes, spoofing the very real power that each of them possess.
A life-sized cutout photograph of the artist herself will stand in front of a large banner image of a glamorous party. Titled Art Is So Fabulous, Isn't It?, this work invites visitors to The Armory Show to take their own photographs simulating a personal encounter with Dalton in a party setting. Here again, the artist is encouraging the viewer to both participate in and question the process that assigns value to art.
A series of works on paper as well as an special interactive sculpture that will make innovative use of The Armory Show 2012 VIP cards will round out the booth, which is located in the “Solo Project” section, a new addition to the fair this year. Winkleman is extremely pleased to be presenting Jennifer Dalton in its first appearance at the Armory Fair; during her long relationship with the gallery she has had five solo shows over the past ten years. Recent exhibitions for Dalton include the upcoming group show “Data Deluge” at the Marfa Ballroom, a Texas non-profit space, and a solo show at the FLAG Art Foundation in 2010.
