PRESS RELEASE:

Galatea Fine Art thanks Dina Deitsch, Associate Curator at the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, for jurying its upcoming First Annual Juried Exhibition entitled “Collective”. Dina’s respected work with the DeCordova Museum was recently praised by the Boston Globe for the extraordinary 2010 DeCordova Biennial showcasing a broad variety of artists in all media. For “Collective”, Ms. Deitsch chose 53 artists of varying genres from New England to participate in this eclectic and energetic exhibition. “Collective” will be shown at Galatea Fine Art, Boston’s newest cooperative gallery, a large space which will be hosting the selected paintings, sculptures, installations, prints, photography and mixed media.

Ms. Deitsch surveyed over 412 images and selected work that creates a balance between irony and pure aesthetics. Her sense of the ironic vacillates between the humorous and mysterious, the common denominator being direct and sometimes surprising observation. Ms. Deitsch also chose work that investigates the purity of form and its relationship to surroundings. In the entirety of the exhibition, she has revealed a direct involvement with the manner in which aesthetics create and define the nature of environment. The work selected creates a vibrancy reflected in the unbridled energy of the evolving and current day, focusing on a greatly desired, but unknown destination.

Juror’s Statement:

The theme of “material as language” was chosen by the 119 Gallery for this juried group exhibition, and as the invited juror I adhered closely to this intentional framework. In selecting artwork for the show, I applied two criteria: overall aesthetic excellence, and the overt privileging of materials in the creation and content of each work.

Art historically considered, materials – until very recently – were to be transformed, transcended, and hidden in the service of imagery. Stone became flesh and drapery, paint conjured people or landscapes, glass dissolved into light itself. Inherently base, materials were vehicles for ideas and emotions. In and of themselves, they were but dust.

The trajectory of art since the late 19th century changed all this. Impressionism and Post-Impressionism began to explore the materiality of paint. The direct carving movement emphasized a “dialogue with the stone.” Modernism demanded “truth to materials.” And Post-Minimalist artists considered materials themselves to be language, embraced but not transformed. And hierarchies of materials were smashed as artists worked with dirt, rubber, poured lead, raw fibers, bodily fluids, gut, meat, pollen, garbage, and a host of other stuff never before considered worthy.

In this exhibition, several ideas about materials emerge. For some artists, materiality is crucial – but in no way denied – in the creation of images and objects, and the materials themselves work to reinforce imagery and content. Other artists have synthesized the languages of materials and text. And still others have entered into a dialogue with ideas surrounding the material and the immaterial.

This last category I found most interesting, and least expected. By probing the dualities of substance/light, obdurate/ephemeral, thing/not thing, being/not being, etc., these artists get to the linguistic (as it were) and philosophical heart of “material as language.” And the single work that best articulates these relationships, with utter simplicity and breathtaking eloquence, is Nicole Ratos Enerson’s looped video In and Out, which I selected as Best in Show.

Congratulations to all the artists, and many thanks to the 119 Gallery for inviting me to serve as juror for Material is Language.
