What: Richard Serra Drawing, A Retrospective
Where: SFMOMA
When: October 15 thru January 16, 2012

This first-ever retrospective of drawings by Richard Serra is a chance to see his ideas in a completely different medium, creating an entirely different perspective.

Using black paintsticks to build stark, densely layered two-dimensional forms—they evoke a terrific sense of mass and gravity not unlike his intense and weighty three-dimensional sculptures. The exhibition traces Serra’s evolution from the 70s on and also features some of his earliest sculptures in lead, rubber, and fiberglass.

bertrand goldberg exhibit: chicago

When: now thru January 15, 2012
Where: The Art Institute of Chicago

From a post-war suburban community, multi-unit dwellings and single family residences to furniture and trucks, the work of Bertrand Goldberg follows a fairly straight trajectory of experimentation from the Bauhaus in the 30s through Chicago in the 80s.

By maintaining an aesthetic of clean lines while pushing engineering envelopes—none more famous than Marina City and River City in Chicago—Goldberg’s sculptural forms and engineering feats left us with outstanding dramatic effects.

When: October 2, 2011 thru January 1, 2012
Where: Museum of Design, Atlanta

As a tool to educate society, graphic posters were drafted worldwide by government agencies, community activists, grassroots organizations and motivated citizens.

From rich and developed countries to poor and underdeveloped—these poster graphics express similar messages using vastly different approaches to aid local populations in the understanding of this highly complex subject.

TASS poster exhibit: chicago

photo by: misocrazyWhat: Windows on the War: Soviet TASS Posters at Home and Abroad, 1941-1945
When: now thru October 23, 2011
Where: The Art Institute of Chicago, AIC

Seventy years ago, during the German invasion of the Soviet Union, a group of artists and writers banned together within the TASS News Agency in Moscow to reassure Soviet citizens— and to rouse Allies—via large-scale posters.

Despite the rule of Joseph Stalin, creativity flourished among these diverse artists and writers as they found purpose while working within the totalitarian state.

Committed to the defense of the motherland, artists produced a poster nearly every day of the war with labor-intensive technical virtuosity—some of them 5’ to 10’ tall with upwards of 60 to 70 color divisions.

Featuring 250 posters—155 of which are the large-scale stenciled versions—it’s their first display in the US since WWII.

california design exhibit: los angeles

photo by: andrewarchyWhat: California Design, 1930–1965: “Living in a Modern Way”
When: October 1, 2011 thru March 25, 2012
Where: LACMA, The Resnick Pavilion

California Design—specifically from 1930-1965, or the midcentury modern period—will get its due as this exhibit focuses on its role in creating a material culture which spread across the country and throughout the world.

More than 300 objects will be on display—including furniture, ceramics, metalwork, fashion and textiles, and industrial and graphic design—by such noted designers as locals Charles and Ray Eames.

Together, the Eames’ define mid-century modern—and their living room is sure to be a highlight of this exhibit. Yes, all 1,864 items from their living room have been moved across the city and placed in a duplicate at LACMA while the Eames Foundation, as part of its 250-year preservation plan, begins the work of maintaining the original 1949 Pacific Palisades house—now over 60 years old.

The house itself will be closed to public viewing until March 2012 so to avoid disappointment, contact the Foundation at least 48 hours in advance to confirm appointments to view the grounds. And don’t miss other exhibits in collaboration with Pacific Standard Time.

Thanks to todd, senior visual merchant west, for this submission.
