Retread by Matt Kinney

The Gallery at Atlas Presents:

"Retread" by Matt Kinney

Opening: Saturday, July 7, 2-9pm

We are pleased to announce the opening of a new solo show in the Gallery at Atlas; “Retread” is a new body of work by Newburgh-based artist Matt Kinney. This latest body of work marks a huge transition for Kinney.

In “Retread,” Kinney takes objects that create our physical connection with the Earth and transforms them into unrecognizable creations that are both graphically-inclined and experimental. A tire tread becomes a sculpture with two bold yellow stripes forging a visual dialogue with the open road, while a tractor is dismantled and organized into a new, dynamic shape. The original branding remaining on the object is the only mark identifying Kinney's sculpture's as formerly functional objects.

Jazz at Atlas presents: Broken Shadows

A powerhouse convergence of four eminent players — Tim Berne on alto saxophone; Chris Speed on tenor saxophone and clarinet; Reid Anderson on bass; and Dave King on drums — gather "to reinterpret the timeless sounds conjured by great men from the rural South and heartland of the country: Ornette Coleman, Julius Hemphill, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden. These iconic figures created an ever-resonant avant-garde out of the folk-art influences of their early surroundings, a canon that comprises the hard blues and deep lament, keening celebration and hollering protest."

Jayoung Yoon

Eco-Practicum

 

 

In Sarah Cameron Sunde’s 12 hour video, 36.5 A durational Performance with the Sea, a woman in a red dress faces down the immense ocean expanse as the tide rises menacingly to her neck and just as slowly recedes. This is the frail human body facing epochal change, standing witness to shifting geographies, toxic landscapes, and a warming climate. The artists in Land and Time confront monumental transformations through video, sculpture, performance, and painting, embracing time as a palpable element in their work. These artists mine forgotten histories or expose imagined landscapes, reminding us that every “landscape is not a record but a recording,” polyvalent and multivocal. Land and time are in flux, unable to be pinned down, frozen, or commodified. And yet, they reflect upon us.

 

Michael Ashkin’s cardboard sculptures depicting megaphone platforms built onto abandoned infrastructure reference the history of communist Appalachian coal miners seizing their means of production in the 1970s. They conjure ghosts of hope and reference the etchings of politics on the American landscape. 

 

Alison Moritsugu’s work examines how images of the land shape conceptions of the natural world. Her large-scale paintings capture what little remains of the once mighty pineapple and sugarcane industries in Hawai’i, the artist’s place of birth. In Big Pineapple, fields on the Wahiawa plain are left unharvested as the land transitions to another crop; King Cane depicts what once was the last working sugar cane plantation on Maui.

 

Mark Tribe’s Rare Earth series explores the function of landscape as a symbolic setting for paramilitary fantasy. These striking photographs of landscapes found in combat video games and moving pictures shot at a militia training ground in Upstate New York depict a nature more beautiful, more real, than the thing itself - its perversion undermines conventional notions of natural beauty. 

 

In Suspect Revival, artist Eliza Evans wraps dead trees and tree limbs in heavy gauge plastic and suspends them from living trees. The embalmed forms are anchored to the ground through an intricate network of taught twine, mimicking those fungal networks that sustain live trees, but here only delay decay.

 

In Joseph Moore’s 24.237.237.93, a 24-hour webcam video of two polar bear worker/performers at the Anchorage zoo is compressed into a time-lapse of only a few minutes. For these animals, the zoo is an human-invented landscape offering refuge from a native habitat that is increasingly inhospitable due to human intervention.

 

Jayoung Yoon uses hair sheared from her head to create sculptures that the artist wears and performs in as a tool for perceptual awakening. Each strand of hair is hand knotted or woven into delicate forms, conjuring invisible thoughts and memories. Her sculpture, Branch, eerily connects between a discarded tree limb and the artist’s own appendages, suggesting both the immortality of our refuse, as well as a physical merger of the mortal body with an equally mortal landscape. 

 

Eco Practicum, an artist-run school for ecological justice, presents a full day of talks and performances with Newburgh historians, anti-gentrification activists, artists, and real-estate developers. The day situates the gallery itself within Newburgh’s own land and time, using each of the works in the exhibition as a spark for further dialogue concerning issues of immediate concern. The date of time of the event is to be determined and will be announced separately.

Think Olio - 1950s & Nostalgia: In Search of Greatness in the "Golden Age"

think-olio-august-2017.jpg

The United States experienced the highest standard of living of any nation in the history of human civilization in the 1950s. But the decade wasn't golden for everyone.

Taught by Professor Lawrence Cappello

Sat, Aug 26 // 7 p.m. at Atlas Studios // Newburgh, NY

Why do film and television love to paint the 1950's as the American utopia? What is it about this era that gives instant nostalgia (even for those who weren't alive during the 50's)?

The United States experienced the highest standard of living of any nation in the history of human civilization in the 1950s. But the decade wasn't golden for everyone.

Join us for Think Olio's Newburgh launch on the evening of August 26th at Atlas Studios! We'll have a lecture from Professor Lawrence Cappello, live music from Bartise and cold complimentary craft beer from Newburgh Brewing!

Not an Ending at All: an evening of dance and music with a+s works and julia hudak

a+s works contemporary dance performance

Join us Saturday, July 29th for an evening of contemporary dance with a+s works as they present: 

Me and the Ghost Upstairs // a work-in-progress
+
Body of Words

And the music of Julia Hudak

Doors open at 7:00 PM - Performance begins at 7:30 PM

TICKETS: $15

Me and the Ghost Upstairs is a work-in-progress which explores the homes we build for the spirits that haunt us. Inspired by the Buddhist teachings on Hungry Ghosts and a deleted scene from Fred Astaire's Second Chorus, the two performers navigate an intimate world carefully guarded by a chorus of personal apparitions. The dance seeks out the hidden parts of everyday narratives and the intimate, internal spaces we make for them. The eeriest haunting is a haunting of the home. It is unclear who is in charge. It is unclear to whom this home belongs.  Threatening and yet strangely loving, this work questions what comes after a life of haunting? What happens when a ghost dies?

Score by Matt Wiggers
Performed by Audrey Lane Ellis, Sarah Capua, Jason Corff, Eric Diehl, and Philip Opsasnick
Approximate Time: 25 mins

Body of Words is an improvisation performance featuring a+s works company members and special guest Coco Karol. This structured improvisation responds to a recorded interview of the late choreographer Ed Tyler. Each performer has a stratified familiarity with the recoding: one made the recording and is the interviewer, one has heard the recording once, and one has never heard it. This improvisational experiment is intended to direct the performers to respond rather than decide, and is an exploration of deep listening both to the familiar and the unknown.

Performed by Sarah Capua, Audrey Lane Ellis, Jason Corff, and Coco Karol
Approximate Time: 15 mins

ABOUT a+s works
Choreographing together for ten years, Sarah Capua and Audrey Lane Ellis began their collaborations in Baltimore with a show at the Walters Art Museum in 2006. Since then they have shown their work in New York City and beyond, presented by Goucher College, Dance New Amsterdam, Dixon Place, Triskelion Arts, Hornell Performing Arts Center and The Belfry. They expanded their collaborations by establishing a dance festival in 2009, launching a+s works On the Farm. This creative think-tank ran for 6 consecutive years. The company is now focused on developing an evening length work to premiere at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn in the Spring of 2018.
