Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Ongoing through May 2020. 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.

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.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Ongoing through October 2020. 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.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Ongoing. Originally trained as an architect, Barry Le Va began creating horizontally dispersed sculptures while he was a student at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. Though seemingly random—and emblematic of chance-based operations—these radical works are rigorously planned and arranged for each site-dependent installation. This survey of Le Va’s floor-based installations from the 1960s will include two of his rarely seen powder dispersals, which will be reconfigured for a site-dependent space at Dia:Beacon.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

Ongoing. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Mel Bochner’s first Measurement Room, Dia has commissioned Bochner to realize a new, large-scale work from his Measurement series at Dia:Beacon. Regarded as one of the leading American Conceptual and Postminimal artists in the 1960s and 1970s, Bochner pioneered the play between the characteristics of numerical values, space, and language in his work.

Maria Lago Studio
502 Main Street, Beacon

Ongoing Through April 10, 2020. The series of Ideographic Paintings are inspired by prehistoric cave drawings and archetypal images. The surfaces of the paintings resemble the walls of a cave and are inscribed with words and symbols. Working spontaneously, I combine images from the past and present to create my own symbolic language. I am attempting to interpret my personal experience within a common visual code.

Dia:Beacon
3 Beekman Street, Beacon

[Dia Beacon closed until further notice] Ongoing through September 2020. Dia Art Foundation commissioned acclaimed Detroit-based techno DJ and producer Carl Craig to create a sound installation at Dia Beacon in dialogue with the unique architecture of the space. Party/After-Party (2020) marks his first commission for an art institution and reimagines Dia Beacon’s lower level, creating a sonic environment that is anchored to the site’s manufacturing history as a former Nabisco packaging factory and recalling a techno tradition of reclaiming industrial spaces for radical experimentation. Free with museum admission. More Info | Dia Beacon Hours

Beacon Artist Union
506 Main St, Beacon

Opening Reception
March 14, 6 – 9pm

Matthew William Robinson’s paintings are informed by vernacular American architecture and the use of collage for improvisational systems. Based in Beacon, NY, Robinson received his MFA from Pratt Institute and his BA from Central Connecticut State University. Notable group exhibitions include ArtBridge Drawing Room in Chelsea-The Nature, Fjord Gallery-Wandering Planar, Governors Island Art Fair, and the Laurence Bendensen Private collection. He was interviewed on Two Coats of Paint and Design Sponge. He maintains a studio in Beacon, NY. Read more...

Everything is a series of work on paper that uses collage and mixed materials (Acrylic paint, String, Magazines and Color Aid) to create abstract environments.The work attempts to create depth and movement in space without relying on painted images and architectural features. While some of the imagery is distinguishable most are hand ripped scraps of paper and colored pencil lines that rely on each other to create the illusion of foreground and background. Large saturated shapes of color used in small quantities are also used as a compositional compass meant to lead the viewer through the environment. Ongoing through April 10.

Saturday, March 14 through Wednesday, April 15, 2020

RiverWinds Gallery
172 Main Street, Beacon

Opening Reception

In this series, the artist is using an encaustic medium to abstractly, emotionally connect fabrics and materials given to her by friends and that she has used in her life. In addition, her husband, the musician Joshua Enslen, will be playing music that inspired the artwork. The Artist Opening is March 14, from 7-9 pm. The show runs through April 5, 2020.

Enslen explains: “In these paintings, I’m fusing up-cycled cloths to beeswax cultivated in the Hudson Valley, and I’m exploring the emotive properties of cloth as experience and memory. I’m pulling and tearing, cutting, and constructing maps of my own making, flattened, frayed, and immersed in beeswax. It’s a new landscape of where I’ve been and where I want to explore. I poured a lot of love into this work as I focused on how to use sustainable materials and express my experiences through abstraction.”

Hudson Beach Glass
162 Main Street, Beacon

Opening: Second Saturday, April 11 from 6-9PM

Karen Miura, artist and animal communicator, will present her one woman show, Tame & Wild. The show will feature pastel paintings of a variety of species from canines to bison and many others in between. The central piece, an impressive 5 foot by 4 foot painting, features two bald eagles battling in flight. Every work displays Karen’s unique ability to comprehend the very soul of each animal subject then distill that essence and return it to life again in her paintings.

“My goal was a show featuring animals that were especially inspiring to me. I wanted to bring forth the emotions of the animals I encountered as an animal communicator. When people see my paintings, I hope they can feel and sense the animals the same way I do. I love the beautiful and odd, the strong and meek, and the myriad of their wonderful personalities, I love everything about every creature.”- Karen Miura
