Exhibition at Marso Gallery in Mexico City

TERRARIUM: A dual solo exhibition by Andrea Galvani + Tim Hyde

Marso Gallery in Mexico City is pleased to announce Terrarium – a dual solo exhibition by artists Andrea Galvani and Tim Hyde.

Terrarium is a conversation in five rooms taking place simultaneously. The historical architecture of the gallery is used by the artists to enclose a dialog between separate geographic explorations of time and memory. The exhibition itself is alive and in flux, featuring a collaboratively-built modular sculpture that is continuously reconfigured to enable conversations and actions with artists and curators in Mexico City.

The show includes more than 25 works of photography, collage, drawing, video, and sculpture. New works are combined with projects that have been exhibited internationally at venues that include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Moscow Biennale, the Ar/ge Kunst Galerie Museum in Bolzano Italy, the Poznan Biennale in Poland, and the Whitney Museum of Art in New York. Terrarium marks the first exhibition by both artists in Mexico.

In addition to the exhibition at Marso Gallery, the artists will present a special installation at Zona Maco derived from their ongoing collaborative project, The Skull Sessions. The Skull Sessions are conversations rendered as form. Each Session is a dialogue recorded and reshaped into experimental publications, objects, images, and installations.

Review: “The Skull Sessions” in ArtFetch

“Miami Nice: Art Fetch Goes Undercover”
Art Fetch
By Shana Beth Mason
Dec.12, 2012

[EXCERPT] “…Its most impressive project was the New York–based collaborative called The Skull Sessions (founded by Andrea Galvani and Tim Hyde). Visitors discovered Alice Miceli’s buried and resurrected rayographs from Chernobyl; Saul Melman’s performances (one, photographs previously taken of his gilding MoMa PS1’s subterranean furnace, and the other arranging horse skin parchment bricks live within the gallery’s booth); Galvani’s clandestine habitation of a rocky area on the island of Corsica; and Hyde’s manipulated photographs of a person seemingly shifting the sky into moveable panels above a parking lot. The capabilities and semantics of organic bodies, and how time inhibits or facilitates their potential was the key.

Essay: “Augmented Reality” by A.E. Benenson, CCNY

“Augmented Reality” by A.E. Benenson
Camera Club of New York
Saturday, March 24th, 2012

[Excerpt] “A poetic proof of the inter-dependence of space and time, Hyde’s photos compress time to produce various geometric constructions that recall 3D models in both their blank texture and paradoxical shapes. Hyde takes advantage of the formal possibilities of Augmented Reality to virtually manipulate real space but without recourse to the actual technology–Hyde physically cuts and pastes the photographs himself. As such, his photographs speak to the potential for the analog “real” world to learn new strategies from virtual innovation and experimentation.”

“The Island: Prologue”
Meulensteen Gallery
511 West 22nd Street NYC
February 23 – April 22, 2012

[Exerpt] “Meulensteen is pleased to present Tim Hyde’s The Island: Prologue on February 23rd in the Project Space. The installation presents photographs, drawings and text as an overture to a body of work that the artist is developing for his forthcoming major exhibition at Meulensteen in 2013.

The series begins with a story about a small island in the Pacific Ocean. The island was the site of a shipwreck in the 1950s that set off a series of geopolitical disputes. These conflicts, combined with the cultural shifts of the early twentieth century, resulted in human evacuation and subsequent replacement by large colonies of sea mammals. The animals have since moved into a house abandoned by the island’s former human inhabitants and established their own strict social order within the ruins.”

Essay: “Common Love, Aesthetics of Becoming”, Kaira M. Cabañas, Editor

Catalog: "Common Love, Aesthetics of Becoming"

“Common Love, Aesthetics of Becoming”, Kaira M. Cabañas, Editor
Wallach Gallery, Columbia University, April 2011

[Excerpt] “The works in Common Love subtly alter the relations between seeing, speaking, and doing for its spectators. They are modest gestures, to be sure. As Rancière maintains, “The images of art do not supply weapons for bat- tles.”18 Instead he affirms how art helps to draw new configurations of “what can be seen, what can be said and what can be thought.”[19] To this statement I would add the following proviso: art’s images present an accumulation of our abilities to think and feel, to see and form relations.20 In short, art invests in our power to love.”

Common Love, Aesthetics of Becoming draws its inspiration from Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri’s 2009 book Commonwealth. In this work, the authors propose that the common infuses all spheres of life. They refer not only to earth’s air, water, plant and animal life, but also to the factors that make up human society: from languages and habits, to affects and codes.

Essay: “In Defense of Wasting Time: Rethinking the Quotidian” by Donald Johnson-Montenegro

By Donald Johnson-Montenegro
Catalog essay for “The Every Other Day” at Ideobox, Miami
November 2010

[Excerpt] “How might the usual become unusual—how might the everyday become the every other day? Each of the eleven artists included in this show engage with this question. They emphasize the ever-present but latent strangeness of the everyday materials and concepts with which they work, making the common uncommon through a subtle but potent subversion. The “every other day” suggests an ongoing interruption of the everyday, a tactic that strives not for an isolated moment of shock but rather for a continual confrontation.”

Review: “How to Draw a Cathedral” at Max Protetch

Art in America – October 2010

Art in America

[Excerpt] “…when the artist video recorded the Manhattan skyline from the roof of his studio in Brooklyn during a snowstorm (resulting in Live Cinema, a work shown at the Philadelphia Museum last spring), he did so using seven stationary long shots, each one hour in length.  As much as a record of duration, the work is experienced as a progression of reduplicative stills.  Further testing the temporal logic of video, the scenes are frequently disrupted by the camera’s automated lens, which struggles to find a fixed focal point through the limited visibility of the storm.  The work obscures a sense of continuous time and space, rather than capturing it. Hyde’s recent New York show continues the dialogue between the perceived temporal qualities of moving and still images.” – By David Duncan

Review of “Does the Angle Between Two Walls have a Happy Ending” at Federica Schiavo Gallery in Rome
Artvehicle 51 / by John Beeson
May 2010

[Exerpt] “There was real poetry in the work Untitled (Monument) by Tim Hyde. Through photo collage Hyde managed the incredible; he thoroughly integrated structure, nature, and man with real lightness, real gravity, and real movement in time – which otherwise remain only inspirations for much of architecture. By splicing together photographs that show an individual repeatedly throwing a piece of construction board into the air, the artist illustrated a framework of how a structure could fluidly interweave with its environment.”

Does the Angle Between Two Walls Have a Happy Ending?
Federica Schiavo Gallery, Rome Italy
Curated by Ishmael Randall Weeks
April 30 – June 10 2010

[Excerpt from exhibition text] “‘Does the angle between two walls have a happy ending?’ brings together ten artists whose work critically and conceptually repositions and re-contextualizes formal histories of art, architecture and design in order to highlight intersections between the political, the poetic and the aesthetic. The title is taken from an advert placed by JG Ballard in Ambit, the legendary magazine he helped to edit in the 1960’s, which blazed it’s own unique and often subversive trail through art, poetry and social commentary. The project is intended as a reflection on the urban landscape, its architecture and typography – within the legacy of modernism and its imprint on post-industrial production – as a contention and/or attraction that delineates actions and positions of inclusion and exclusion.”

Each work is installed without any caption information, so looking becomes an exercise in recognition and speculation, and ultimately conversation.

Curated by Sam Ekwurtzel
Nieman Art Gallery, Columbia University School of the Arts
Sept 2010
Virginia Commonwealth University Fine Arts, Richmond Virginia
March 7- 21, 2011

[From exhibition text] “In 1996 author David Foster Wallace published his novel Infinite Jest and was instantly hailed as one of the greatest authors of the 20th century, eventually being granted a MacArthur award. His sprawling and complex novel chronicles the lives of the characters surrounding James Incandenza- avant-garde filmmaker, mathematician, and visionary tennis instructor. The plot largely revolves around the missing master copy of one of Incandenza’s films, titled Infinite Jest, a film so entertaining to its viewers that they become catatonic, losing all interest in anything other than endless viewings of the film. Included as a footnote in Wallace’s novel is the Complete Filmography of James O. Incandenza, a detailed list of over 70 industrial, documentary, conceptual, advertorial, technical, parodic, dramatic non-commercial, and non-dramatic commercial works. In collaboration with Virginia Commonwealth University, the organizers of this exhibition have commissioned artists and filmmakers to re-create seminal works from Incandenza’s Filmography.”

[Excerpt from New Yorker review] “Though the show consists of works in various mediums, including painting and sculpture, the videos are undoubtedly the main attraction. The set-up was quite impressive. A towering column of VCRs stacked one on top of the other is hooked up to an analog television, throwbacks to 1996, the year “Infinite Jest” was released. The videos are simultaneously on the television monitor and projected on a larger screen against the wall.”

"Video Art" by Michael RushAt a time when the nation is preoccupied with heightened security and surveillance, and the public is fascinated by Reality TV with its open and surreptitious video exposure of participants, the boundaries between performance, voluntary acting for the camera, and surveillance, involuntary recording on camera by power systems with an interest in the movement of citizens, become blurred.  Since the earliest days of video art in the mid-1960s, artists have negotiated the question of when surveillance becomes performance (and vice versa) and these concepts continue to be central to many video artists working today. This exhibition, which examines both the early days of video art and
current practices, is an attempt to understand the complex relationship between the issues of performance, surveillance, and power. Included in the exhibition are works by some of the earliest practitioners, large-scale installations, and newly commissioned pieces.

A Letter Concerning Enthusiasm
Curated by Luigi Fassi
Ar/ge Kunst Galerie Museum, Bolzano Italy
March 30 – May 26 2009

 “A Letter Concerning Enthusiasm” takes its title and starting point from a philosophical letter written in 1707 by the british thinker Anthony Ashley Cooper, earl of Shaftesbury. The exhibition explores the dark sides embedded in the understanding of enthusiasm during modernity in Europe, when this feeling was devalued and dismissed, being considered a source of obsession, fanatism and violence. The works of the artists on view in the exhibition reenact this understanding describing in a variety of ways the defeat, during the XX century, of revolutionary ideologies overloaded by enthusiasm, showing the point in which enthusiasm reveals its failure collapsing into boredom and inactivity.

Tim Hyde / Live Cinema at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

[Excerpt] “…The moving image also allowed Hyde to think of time differently. If, with his still photographs, a moment in time was captured in a relatively inflexible format, which video, time becomes a malleable component that could be edited, fragmented, and manipulated into new forms of representation. Video Panorama does this and more by exposing questions related to the agency of the artist at work behind the camera. The multiple-channel work explores the possibility of representing landscape in the twenty-first century when the very notion of landscape has been overly mediated and to a certain extent irrevocably compromised.” – By Adelina Vlas

Philadelphia Museum of Art
Curated by Carlos Basualdo & Adelina Vlas
March 20, 2009 – June 21, 2009

In his work, Brooklyn-based artist Tim Hyde investigates the relationship between physical space, time, and perception. He strives to render visible the relation between spaces and the physical interactions they enable, by using architecture as a backdrop. For Hyde, space is perceived and transformed in time, a concept translated through the use of time-based mediums like video and collaged photography. The artist’s close examination of the production of images in film and photography emphasizes the mechanical inadequacy of the camera, turning its technological limitations to his advantage in order to create works that challenge interpretation and question the nature of representation.

Rather than thinking of time as a linear progression, the title suggests an elliptical oscillation that allows mental projections from the present to the past and into the future in a start-and-stop dynamic.

Artists: Jeff Cain, Krysten Cunningham, Tom Dale, Veaceslav Druta, Adam Frelin, Olexander Gnilitsky, Vlatka Horvat, Tim Hyde, Yuliya Kostereva + Yuriy Kruchak, Nebojsa Milikic, Maarten Vanden Eynde, and Angie Waller.

Exhibition: “Degrees of Remove: Landscape and Affect” at Sculpture Center, NYC

Degrees of Remove: Landscape and Affect
Sculpture Center, Queens New York
Curated by Sarina Basta and Fionn Meade

Degrees of Remove suggests the contemporary experience of landscape as increasingly mediated through documentation in urban societies. The works on view explore the representation of spatial constructs through fiction and affect, of allegorical remove. While the word “landscape” was borrowed into English from the Dutch in the 16th century in direct relationship to painting, later definitions came to associate it with vista or natural scenery, and ultimately to a more general equation of landscape with image. As mediations between landscape and the individual have evolved through the increased prominence of photography, film, and other technologies, so has the perception of what constitutes landscape. With these technologies as intermediaries, the exhibition explores related ideas of the author as viewer and the viewer as witness.

Exhibition: “Person of the Crowd: The Contemporary Art of Flanerie” at the Neuberger Museum of Art

Person of the Crowd: The Contemporary Art of Flanerie
Neuberger Museum of Art
Curated by Thom Collins, Director
January 20-April 13, 2008

In 1840, Edgar Allan Poe published the seminal short story “The Man of the Crowd.” In it, he introduced a character that would become one of the central tropes of literary and artistic modernism: the flâneur (stroller), who is the participant-observer of the industrial revolution. This character takes to the streets, wandering far and wide, gathering clues to the essence of the modern city by observing its physical fabric and its inhabitants and their public activities. Poe’s man of the crowd was the inspiration for Charles Baudelaire’s “The Painter of Modern Life,” the essay that heralded the arrival of the quintessential artist-flâneurs—the French Impressionists.

This exhibition surveys recent multimedia art created by artists who work in the way first described by Poe and codified by Baudelaire. They join street life in order to make art about postmodern cities around the world and the people who inhabit them.

Exhibition: “Ukrainian Citizens and Strangers” at Queens Annex

 Yuriy Kruchak & Yuliya Kostevera Ukrainian Citizens and Strangers
Queens Annex Gallery, San Francisco
Curated by Julie Deamer / Outpost for Contemporary Art
March 14 – April 30, 2008
Four Walls founder Julie Deamer organized Ukrainian Citizens and Strangers, an impressive collaboration between nine American and Ukrainian artists. Filled with narratives haunted by memories of an oppressive government, the exhibition explores how a culture might reassess its relationship with the past while attempting to underwrite a hopeful future. Jeff Cain scours Kiev for evidence of “ReConstructivism” — that is, community-built, socially practical structures designed outside the state’s mandate. Meanwhile, Tim Hyde, Yuriy Kruchak, and Yuliya Kostevera use objects and architecture to evoke an environment haunted by history and transition.
Artists: Jeff Cain, Adam Frelin, Olexander Gnilitsky, Maya Hayuk, Tim Hyde, Yuliya Kostevera, Yuriy Kruchak, Angie Waller, Lesja Zajac.

Collaborative project: “The Lost Highway Exhibition” and the Unknown Future of Europe

The Lost Highway Exhibition

The Lost Highway Expedition is a tour to explore the unknown future of Europe. It is an interdisciplinary and multi-nationally based research project to articulate and imagine the current evolution of new and transforming borders and territories of Europe. The subject is the continent of immigration, and its depopulation and aging, and the need for redefinition of states, sovereignties and citizenships. The project was conceived by the artist/architects Kyong Park and Marjetica Potrc in the fall of 2004 in the course of their month-long expedition through ten cities in the Western Balkans. While discovering and exploring new urban phenomena in these cities, Kyong Park and Marjetica Potrc collected their preliminary research material, including extensive photo-documentation, and established contacts with individual initiatives and various institutions in each city.

Review: “Tim Hyde at Max Protetch” in Artforum

artforum_April2007Tim Hyde uses video to examine architecture – a relationship between media that brings to mind Dan Graham’s ongoing investigation of public and private space, as well as Doug Aitken’s Sleepwalkers, 2007.  But Hyde is less interested in contrasting the time-based quality of one with the space-based element of the other than in using these complementary practices to examine the psychological result of inhabiting a body inside a built space. These concerns are most profoundly explored in The Keeper, in which the camera focuses on an elderly woman’s back.  Hyde set out to film the repeating concrete arches in a former KGB building….

Review: “Tim Hyde at Max Protetch” in the New Yorker

The New Yorker“The night that Tim Hyde arrived in Belarus, he turned his video camera on and let it run, as various gently surreal images rose from the night to meet him – a teen-age girl courting or provoking the lens, a forbidding apartment block looming against the sky, a giant toad hopping suddenly into the frame. Hyde’s other photographs and videos are equally focussed on laconically evocative adventures.  (He borrows the title of the Belarus piece, “Invisible City,” from Italo Calvino). An elderly lady obstructs his view of a former K.G.B. building in Kiev, and a snowstorm does the same for a Brooklyn skyline, while shipping containers hulk in indeterminate darkness, like buildings in a makeshift city of their own.”

Review: “Tim Hyde” in ArtReview, by John Welch

[Excerpt] “…This work offers up all of Hyde’s structural fetish and moody, war-like lighting, but adds to the fray a single, vaguely outlined individual in an upper-floor window. It is neither surprising nor ironic that this image, the only one featuring a human being, is in fact the loneliest of the set.”
