Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

A pioneer of the Mono-ha movement in Japan, Lee Ufan developed a sculptural practice in the 1960s that explored the tension between natural and man-made materials and the dialogue between object and space. In 1972 he changed the titles of the works that he had made up to that point to Relatum, referring to a concept in Heideggerian philosophy, which conveyed the artist’s interest in contingent circumstances. Read more...

The exhibition at Dia:Beacon, resulting from close collaboration with the artist, will showcase Dia’s 2017 acquisition of three sculptural works by Lee – Relatum (formerly System, 1969), Relatum (formerly Language, 1971), and Relatum (1974)—alongside several important loans.

Saunders Farm
853 Old Albany Post Road, Garrison

Experimental art is encouraged. The result of combining art with animals, however, is hard to predict. It never creates repetition, only surprises and discoveries of how the two interact with each other. The cows have been great critics of the sculptures each year, having favorites and some that they serenade. On View through October 27 | Free to the Public

No. 3 Reading Room & Photo Book Works
469 Main Street, Beacon

On view in the Reading Room are 18 works on paper selected from the larger body of work by Mariam Aziza Stephan. Small, intimate 6 x 18” drawings; India ink on paper, but paper that has been cut open and reassembled with additions and deletions, like the sacrifice zones they represent. Each poem by Julia Johnson is numbered to accompany its corresponding image. Of her project, the artist Mariam Aziza Stephan states: “This work is about loss. The drawings serve as mediations and records of both places and states that either no longer exist or are in the process of disappearing. These constructed landscapes piece together fragmented scenes of conflict, abandonment and disarray and attempt to link ecological and psychological upheaval.” Also on display and available for reading are books that have informed or relate to the artist’s and poet’s work. Novels, photobooks, poetry and essays on the notion of place and displacement are featured. Ongoing through October 27th.

Dia:Beacon

Opens October 5, 2019, ongoing.

Since 1962, Marian Zazeela has worked with her long-time collaborator, La Monte Young, on large-scale installations in sound and light. Though Zazeela’s sculptures and light design have become well known, her works on paper have remained decidedly less so. Dia will present approximately 30 works on paper dating from 1962 to 1990 (with the majority from the 1960s and 1970s), which showcase the range of materials and motifs that stem from the artist’s deep interest in calligraphy and ornamental forms.

506 Main Street, Beacon

“Collapsed Time” is a joint exhibition featuring paintings and drawings by Joel Werring and photographs by Pamela Zaremba, and investigating themes of nostalgia and the subversion and reinterpretation of memory in American home and family life. This exhibition, to be curated by Claudine Maidique and presented at BAU Artist Union, is the second collaboration between Werring and Zaremba. Read more...

In his recent work, Joel Werring continues to explore complexities related to self, family, and legacy. The paintings often center on a solitary figure located within a structural environment that encompasses both the architectural, physical world and that bridges to an emotional, interior space—creating a hybrid reality of past and present. Working from sources such as film, song lyrics, poetry, album covers, and an archive of family photographs, Werring creates visual psychodramas blending personal memory, cultural history, and collective mythology.

Pamela Zaremba’s new photographs further examine the uncanny charge carried by household objects belonging to her parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Her “vanitas,” still-life compositions depict narrative scenes created by decades of compulsive hoarding and accumulated possessions, from wedding cake toppers to gas masks. Zaremba’s photographs explore how her family’s reluctance to let go of certain objects both extols these objects’ sentimentality and ensures the inevitability of their irrelevance over time. Zaremba transposes these past references onto a post-modern timeline, challenging the original use and intent of the objects and creating the foundation for new memories.

Joel Werring received his MFA from the Yale School of Art. He received a Guggenheim Fellowship in Painting in 2003. He has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions nationally, and is currently an Associate Professor in the Fine Arts Department at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Pamela Zaremba received her BS from Babson College. She pursued her career photography at the International Center of Photography, New York City.  She worked in editorial and commercial photography before focusing solely on Fine Art. She currently works and lives in Westport, Connecticut.

Curator Claudine Maidique received her BS in Textiles and Design from Cornell University. She has curated solo and group shows throughout Miami Art Basel, New York City Frieze Week, Yonkers Arts Weekend, and in private galleries. She is an interior designer and art consultant in Westport, Connecticut.

The joint exhibition opens at the BAU Artist Union at 506 Main Street, Beacon, NY 12508. Opening reception will be Saturday, October 12, from 6 to 9 pm, and the exhibition runs from October 12 to November 3. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays 12-6 pm. For more information contact Claudine Maidique at claudine@maidique.com.
