Allison Schulnik: LA Film Festival and Times Square

Allison Schulnik‘s most recent video, “Forest,” (2009) is getting super-sized. As we like to say, “go big or go home….for hobo,” and Schulnik’s infamous nomadic vagabond is making his New York debut in a big way: on the MTV screen in Times Square. Curated and produced by Creative Time, “Forest” will screen in rotation with works by Rob Carter and Graeme Patterson June 15 – July 15th. Should you find yourself between 44th and 45th Avenue on Broadway – in front of the MTV Building – it’s likely you’ll catch her clay-animated magic on the streets of NYC.

Additionally, “Forest” will be featured in the upcoming 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival! Featured in the “Ecelectic Mix 2” screening for music videos, Schulnik’s piece can be seen on the evenings of June 18th (8pm) and 20th (7pm) at the Grammy Museum’s Clive Davis Sound Stage. Tickets are on sale June 1 at www.lafilmfest.com – we recommend buying them ASAP!

Looks like this summer is going to be a busy one for Ms. Schulnik….as her works will also be featured in two upcoming group exhibitions in New York! First up, Schulnik will be featured in CANADA‘s “Homunculi,” on view June 4 – July 11, alongside artists Matt Greene, Ruby Neri and Matthew Ronay. Opening on June 24, “Touched” at Lehmann Maupin will also feature new paintings by Schulnik in addition to works by Maria Nepomuceno and Klara Kristalova. The exhibition will be on view through August 13, 2010.

So really, if you’re on either coastline Allison’s got you covered…

Allison Schulnik Shows SXSW What’s Up

SXSW is predominantly known for its mega-music-industry swank, indie showcases, sponsor parties and international attendees that appear to have sprung from the very pages of an Urban Outfitters catalogue. Leave it to Allison Schulnik to find the bridge between this and her acclaimed contemporary art.

Featured in SXSW’s video showcase, Schulnik’s “Forest” – which also doubled as the music video for Grizzly Bear’s “Ready, Able,” nabbed the runner-up position behind “Luv Deluxe” by Cinnamon Chasers, directed by Saman Keshavarz.

“Home for Hobo” Opens in T-24 Hours

Mark Moore Gallery is kicking off the new year with a long-awaited sophomore solo show from LA-native, Allison Schulnik.

Since Schulnik’s uber-impastoed paintings last graced our walls in 2007, she’s been included in over twenty international group shows and four solo exhibitions. Aside from being the subject of many publications and the artistic director of indie-music-sensation Grizzly Bear’s last music video, she’s found some time to create “Home for Hobo” – which consists of twelve new paintings, among a few other goodies.

Schulnik will be in attendance for her opening tomorrow evening, January 9th, from 5-7pm. We suggest you come see (and smell) these luscious works for yourself….or be horribly depressed that you missed it.

Come on in, 2010!

While we are embarrassingly late in updating our blog, Mark Moore Gallery can say that we’re looking forward to a very strong 2010. Between the positivity felt at the Miami fairs, new artists being welcomed into the gallery and long-awaited shows being added to the schedule, we bid a hearty farewell to 2009.
