September 11, 2013 - October 17, 2013
CCS Bard

Nothing in common, but a lot in common by Jesús “Bubu” Negrón is an encounter that addresses the context of a bulletin board in two different sites, the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College and the University of Puerto Rico, as both space and place, emphasizing institutional, cultural and political relations of difference, while addressing the status of the object within the discourse of contemporary art.

Glen Fogel takes a cool distance to the nostalgic overtones that occupy his work by exaggerating his object’s mode of display—transforming the sentimental with a hyperactive presentation of its value.

H/Qu : Mary Reid Kelley with Patrick Kelley

May 29, 2012 - September 20, 2012

Part formal exercise, part ‘choose your own adventure’, Mary Reid Kelley’s H/Qu takes up the constraints of the Oulipo (Ouvroir de littérature potentielle), founded by experimental writers Raymond Queneau and Francois Le Lionnais in 1960, and allows the viewer to muddle the distance between a hardboiled mystery and a narrative riddled with prankster wordplay.

March 16, 2012 - May 28, 2012
CCS Bard

For the three-paneled form of the Bulletin Board at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, Los Angeles-based artist Scott Benzel conceptualized a site-specific triptych for the atypical, yet mundane, exhibition space. Conceived as a sculptural installation of personal effects including cleaning supplies, a reproduction of Courbet's L’Origine du Monde, and a vintage box of Ivory Snow laundry detergent, Benzel assembled these objects under his sink to be photographed for the Ivory Neige triptych.

Rosamond Wolff Purcell / Rich Pell / Cameron Keith Gainer : Field Notes

February 6, 2012 - March 16, 2012
CCS Bard

FIELD NOTES presents work by artists interested in the role subjectivity plays in scientific research, how a collector influences a collection. Employing a methodology similar to the field note—the notes detailing events leading up to the biological specimens’ collection and inform its final classification—these three artists question perception’s role in knowledge production; they examine the gap between rational scientific systems and human idiosyncrasies.

The installation 24/7 Tight Schedule functions as a talisman devoted to time. It confers supernatural power to ordinary objects.

To make her oil paint monoprints, Nicole Ondre rubs a piece of paper against a newly painted section of her studio wall. The pressure of her weight and the textures of the wall combine to make the picture. The forms produced through these encounters have distinct kinship--each print shifting and accruing meaning in relation to the others.

Living Under the Same Roof is the public part of a process of looking into the collection of the Hessel Museum of Art with the students of CCS Bard.

A series of talks with artists whose works are in the collection is part of the program. Curated by CCS Bard curator in residence, Ana Paula Cohen. Opening reception: Saturday, February 20, 1:00 - 5:00 pm
