The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s newest iteration of the exhibition, “The Very Large Array: San Diego/Tijuana Artists in the MCA Collection” will feature two gallery artists – Allison Schulnik and Kim Rugg - that are included in the institution’s collection.
Featuring more than 100 artists and representing five decades of collecting, this expansive group show of Museum acquisitions highlights many of the region’s most beloved and accomplished artists.
In this quarter’s rotation, the museum will feature the video “Forest” by Allison Schulnik and the expansive installation “Don’t Mention the War” by Kim Rugg. The exhibition (in many variations) will remain on view through June 1, 2014.
The Marin Community Foundation‘s “Millennial Abstractions” features MMG’s Ali Smith along with Kim Anno and David McDonald among others.
Since the start of the new millennium, many artists have responded to the horrors of 9/11, the Iraq War, and the life-changing impacts of climate change with a fragmented, dissociative, deconstructed focus in both painting and sculpture. The work featured in this exhibit, however, is more vibrant and evocative than abstractions we have seen in the past. The artists’ choice of color, form, shapes, and mark making are transformational and inspiring in the deepest sense.
The exhibition remains on view through May 31, 2013.
Bentley Gallery (Phoenix, AZ) is pleased to present a group exhibition of paintings, by six notable artists, whose use of color is the main event.

Reyes, Director of Secondary Market at Bentley Gallery, curated the exhibition.
Opening on Saturday, March 9th, the exhibition will remain on view through the 29th. Make sure to visit if you find yourself in need of some color…

Mark Moore Gallery is thrilled to announce its participation in New York’s Moving Image Contemporary Video Art Fair - a fair exclusively dedicated to the presentation of single-channel videos, single-channel projections, video sculptures, and other larger video installations from international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions. Taking place during Armory Week (March 7-10, 2013) in the Waterfront Tunnel event space (between 27th and 28th Streets with an entrance on 11th Avenue in Chelsea), Moving Image is free and open to the public, including the opening reception on Thursday, March 7, 6–8 PM.
Mark Moore Gallery will present “Up Against” (2012), a single-channel video by new program artist, Cheryl Pope. This work illustrates an individual psychology at battle with the self/self and the self/other. Focusing on cognition, the figure attempts to break down the forms in order to open headspace. The struggle and duration speaks to the multiplicity that consumes the mental interior. The water inside the forms references other interior cavities of the body, such as a stomach upset with nervousness or irritation, or the mind shifting from quiet calm to disruptive agitation. Originally staged as a two-hour performance at Mandragoras Art Space in 2010, the subsequent video re-stages Pope’s visceral staging and engagement with feminist performance practices. Working in the mediums of sculpture, video, installation, assemblage, drawing, and performance, Cheryl Pope addresses issues of connectivity and identity that inform the way in which we live our lives today. The artist lives and works in New York, where she is the studio manager for artist Nick Cave.
For more information about the fair, please visit the Moving Image website, or email the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
