PLEASE RECALL TO ME EVERYTHING YOU HAVE THOUGHT OF

PLEASE RECALL TO ME EVERYTHING YOU HAVE THOUGHT OF—a group show of women artists at Morán Morán, curated by Eve Fowler—is on view for one more week.

This highly recommended exhibition includes the work of Etel Adnan, Frances Barth, Donna Dennis, Florence Derive, Simone Fattal, Magdalena Suarez Frimkess, Barbara Hammer, Harmony Hammond, Maren Hassinger, Suzanne Jackson, Virginia Jaramillo, Harriet Korman, Joyce Kozloff, Magali Lara, Mary Lum, Mónica Mayer, Dona Nelson, Senga Nengudi, Howardena Pindell, and Joan Semmel.

“The title of the show is from a Gertrude Stein text that Fowler selected for its ambiguous poetry that she felt honored the artists.”

I’m not asking the artists to tell me anything, but they allowed me in their studios—a private place where artists often feel vulnerable. — Eve Fowler*

WITH IT WHICH IT AS IT IF IT IS TO BE

“Each one is one and there are many.”

WITH IT WHICH IT AS IT IF IT IS TO BE, a new film by Eve Fowler, rises and falls to the tune of this line, written by Gertrude Stein in her 1910 short story “Many Many Women.” [The 33-minute 16mm film] is a lovingly made collective portrait of female artists at work in the studio….Fowler has directed her camera, through the cinematography of the artist and filmmaker Mariah Garnett, toward the intimate spaces of women’s art work. The film’s title is a line from Stein’s text which is read as voiceover by eight writers and artists….[each lending] a personal tone and inflection to the text, accentuating the subjective dimension of each artist’s individual labor and technique.

WITH IT WHICH IT AS IT IF IT IS TO BE documents the practices of over twenty artists based primarily in Los Angeles and New York, paying special attention to their process, their work with materials, their contemplative approaches, their manipulations. Shots cut from one studio to the next, and oscillate between focused close-ups of process-based activities and more casual portraits, where an atmosphere of trust and friendship clearly lies behind the screen. In one, the sculptor Daphne Fitzpatrick walks around her studio, a dog in tow—the feel is familiar, the portrait honest. In another, the painter Nicole Eisenman climbs atop a wooden scaffold to reach the upper portion of her large-scale canvas. There, she picks from an array of brushes before getting to work on one of her own complex, group portraits, which turns scenes from the everyday into the stuff of contemporary history painting. In yet another, the choreographer Taisha Paggett performs movement work as the camera attentively follows the gestures and modulations of her expressive body.” — Rachel Valinsky*

INITIATION

In August of 2014, letterpress studio Bullhorn Press moved into Otherwild, a shop and graphic design studio in Echo Park. In the spirit of their newfound collaboration, Otherwild’s Rachel Berks and Bullhorn’s Jaye Fishel founded INITIATION, a limited edition letterpress print series featuring the work of 18 notable Los Angeles artists.

From Otherwild’s website:

The project was born of the desire to create material in the tradition of the democratic multiple, bypassing the gallery system to distribute artist multiples to a wider public at a reasonable cost, whilst, as Lucy Lippard said, “to see artists able to profit economically from broad communication rather than from the lack of it.” INITIATION aims to support artists not only economically, but also provides a platform to explore the art making possibilities on the letterpress, a medium unfamiliar to most every artist represented in the edition. The participating artists: Math Bass, Akina Cox, Ania Diakoff, Zackary Drucker, Lauren Davis Fisher, Eve Fowler, Anna Sew Hoy, Molly Larkey, Lauren Mackler, Dylan Mira, MPA, Taisha Paggett, Shauna Steinbach, A.L. Steiner, Julie Tolentino, Kimberly Varella, Erika Vogt, Suzanne Wright. Each print is available in an edition of 70, with 1-40 available as individual prints, 41-70 as a complete boxed set.
