Opening April 15 and on view through June 15, 2010, Vernon Fisher will have a solo exhibition of work at Seomi & Tuus Gallery (Seoul, Korea). Focusing primarily on the artist’s blackboard, globe and map-based works, the show will feature over a dozen works, and several studio-fresh blackboard paintings.
The show will act as an international preview to the artist’s upcoming retrospective exhibit at the Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth (TX) this fall, entitled “K-Mart Conceptualism.” On view September 25, 2010 – January 2, 2011, the exhibition will survey Fisher’s work to date by utilizing pieces from prominent collections around the world. Says the museum:
“The exhibition will showcase the early collages that combine abstract painting, text, and image; and a selection of many of the artist’s best-known blackboard paintings, in which a faux blackboard surface is used as the ground for realistic, painted vignettes adjacent to fragments of different stories that suggest variously ambiguous meanings. A number of large, room-sized installations will also be included.”
