• Haim Steinbach

    Haim Steinbach

    Rehovot, Israël, b. 1944
    For more than four decades, Haim Steinbach (lives and works in New York) has explored the psychological, aesthetic, cultural and ritualistic aspects of collecting and arranging already existing objects. His work engages the concept of “display” as a form that foregrounds objects, raising consciousness of the play of presentation. Steinbach selects and arranges objects – which range from the natural to the ordinary, the artistic to the ethnographic – thereby emphasizing their identities, inherent meanings and associations. An important influence in the growth of post-modern artistic dialogue, Steinbach’s work has radically redefined the status of the object in art. His work was exhibited at major museums worldwide: The Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College, New York; Kunsthalle, Zurich; Serpentine Gallery, London; The Menil Collection, Houston; Statens Museum fur Kunst in Copenhagen; Berkeley Art Museum, UC Berkeley; Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna; CAPC musée d’art contemporain, Bordeaux; Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Turin, Italy; Kunsthalle Ritter in Austria; Guggenheim Museum in New York; Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam; In 1999, his work was presented at the Venice Biennale as part of the 47th International Art Exhibition curated by Germano Celant. His work is represented in the permanent collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Tate Modern in London, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. https://www.laurentgodin.com/haim-steinbach

  • Rebecca Morgan

    Rebecca Morgan

    Clearfield, PA, United States, b. 1984
    Rebecca Morgan is from central Pennsylvania, and her paintings, drawings, and ceramics emanate from stereotypes of rural Appalachia. Humorous, benevolent, and savage at turns, her characters touch on truths about poverty, addiction, and off-the-grid living, as well as idealizations of uncultured country life. Stylistically, Morgan embraces hyper-detailed naturalism, influenced by Dutch painters such as Memling, Brueghel, and Van Eyck, as well as absurd, repulsive caricature suggestive of underground cartoonists like R. Crumb. As an on-and-off-again New Yorker, she represents the ultimate insider/outsider point-of view, embracing and critically distancing herself from her origins. Morgan’s face jugs revive a craft tradition common in the American South and Appalachia of vessels used by slaves to ward off the devil and later for scaring children away from moonshine. The individual portrait is replaced by the jug’s typecasting, and the contemporary is subsumed in the folkloric. Modern woes of methadone addiction, unemployment, and abandonment by society, collapse into a centuries-old societal disgust at country folk. Rebecca Morgan received a BA from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and her MFA from Pratt Institute, NY. Press for her work includes Time Out New York, ARTnews, Whitehot Magazine, Beautiful Decay, Artslant, Juxtapoz Magazine, The Huffington Post, and Berlin’s Lodown Magazine, among others. She is the recipient of a residency at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, The Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts Residency, a Vermont Studio Center full fellowship, and the George Rickey Residency at Yaddo. Exhibitions include Invisible Exports, NY, Elga Wimmer Gallery, NY, Arts KC, MO, Booth Gallery, NY, Gasser Grunert Gallery, NY, Richard Heller Gallery, Los Angeles, CA, Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia, PA, and Spring/Break, New York, NY, among others. Her work is currently on view at the Vancouver Art Gallery as part of “Juxtapoz X Superflat”, and traveling exhibition curated by Evan Pricco and Takashi Murakami.

  • Peter Buggenhout

    Peter Buggenhout

    Dendermonde, Bélgica, b. 1963

    Peter Buggenhout (b. 1963, Dendermonde, Belgium) lives and works in Ghent, Belgium

    Buggenhout’s unpolished sculptures evoke images of chaos and disorder, of abandoned ruins and archaeological findings from a different era. He utilizes materials such as debris, industrial waste and household dust, in both monumental installations and smaller works. The sculptures appear to be turned inside out; raw and dismantled, repulsive and appealing, bearing a frail and uncomfortable beauty. Buggenhout’s work has been exhibited in major institutions including David Roberts Foundation, London; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; MoMA PS1, New York; MONA, Hobart, Tasmania and Palais De Tokyo, Paris.

  • Darío Escobar

    Darío Escobar

    Guatemala City, Guatemala, b. 1971
    Darío Escobar works in various media: sculpture, installation, painting, and drawing. His work in general makes use of the concept of the readymade. The objects Escobar uses in his works are though always altered in some way or another and gain new meanings through both the alterations as well as the placement of the objects in an artistic context. General themes in Escobar’s work are the complex relations between globalisation, aesthetics, colonialism, modernism and consumerism. The structural power relations between these concepts are investigated through attention to both materials and space as well as the different connotations connected with the objects chosen.
