Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Minneapolis, United States of America
Official website: Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Walker Art Center was the originating venue for Brilliant!: New Art From London, Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis, 22 October 1995  - 7 January 1996 and Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, 17 February - 14 April 1996. The exhibition was one of a number that featured practitioners identified with the so-called yBa grouping. The term yBa refers to certain types of practitioners who collectively, and in some instances, rather loosely, came to be known as Young British Artists, or yBas for short. The term originated in the early 1990s, centred on the work of Damien Hirst and a number of other artists. In an essay The Tate, The Turner Prize and the Art World, Louisa Buck offered a useful summary of the term’s origins. “[Charles] Saatchi had attended [Damien] Hirst’s famous Freeze exhibition in 1988, and soon began to bulk-buy this new batch of home-grown talent. He also set about applying his marketing skills to the promotion of these artists and their work, initially in a series of widely publicised exhibitions at Boundary Road [the original home of the Saatchi Gallery, in St John’s Wood, London] during 1992-5 under the collective title of Young British Artists. The acronym stuck, and soon any artist of that generation, whether or not they had been to Goldsmiths [College], was branded YBA.” Louisa Buck, The Tate, the Turner Prize and the Art World, in The Turner Prize and British Art, Tate, 2007, pp. 12 – 25 (p.19). Chris Ofili was the only Black artist included in Brilliant!: New Art From London. This was at a time when Ofili’s distinctive use of elephant dung within his work was very much in its ascendancy and his Turner Prize nomination was still several years off.

Walker Art Center was also the venue for No Place (Like Home), March 9 - June 8 1997. The exhibition was curated by Richard Flood, Curatorial Assistant, Deepali Dewan, and Curatorial Intern, Eungie Joo. The artists in the exhibition were Zarina BhimjiNick Deocampo, Willie Doherty, Kay Hassan, Kcho, Gary Simmons, Meyer Vaisman, and Kara Walker.

Grey Art Gallery and Study Centre

Official website: Grey Art Gallery and Study Centre

Interrogating Identity was a 1991 exhibition that took place at the Grey Art Gallery & Study Center, New York University. It featured a wide range of artists, born in a disparate range of countries such as Guyana, Philippines, China, and Malta, and living in countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States. Following its showing at the Grey Art Gallery & Study Center, the exhibition toured to several other venues. At the time of the exhibition, one of its two curators, Thomas W. Sokolowski, worked at the Grey Art Gallery & Study Center.

From the catalogue introduction, by the exhibition’s curators, Kellie Jones and Thomas W. Sokolowski: “The present exhibition has chosen to view the search for identity as it has taken place in the three primarily English-speaking countries: Canada, Great Britain, and the United States of America. The choice of this particular triad relates not only to linguistic compatibility, but also to the former relationship between England and her North American Colonies. This latter element is most important considering that the subsequent waves of immigrants to all three countries have occasioned the redefinitions of national identity moving away from traditional monolithic views toward varying notions of multiculturalism.“

Its exhibitions, in-depth educational programs, and on-site, degree-granting master’s program explore the process of design, both historic and contemporary. As part of its mission, Cooper-Hewitt annually sponsors the National Design Awards, a prestigious program which honors innovation and excellence in American design. Together, these resources and programs reinforce Cooper-Hewitt’s position as the preeminent museum and educational authority for the study of design in the United States.”

529 West 20th Street
5thFL
New York, NY 10011

info@skotogallery.com

From the website: “Skoto Gallery was established in 1992 as a space where some of the best works by African artists can be exhibited within the context of a diverse and totalized audience. As one of the first galleries specializing in contemporary African Art in New York City, it has been instrumental in the progression of this rapidly growing field. In spite of its major commitment to contemporary African Art, the gallery has also managed to expand, deepen and diversify its involvement with contemporary issues by engaging a wide range of art and artists in its programming. Its inaugural exhibition was curated by African-American jazz luminary Ornette Coleman. Towards this end, the gallery has increasingly become a nexus of possibilities not only for contemporary African art but for mainstream artists of any ethnic or cultural persuasion. It has become a site where the adventurous viewer and collector can be involved in an ongoing cultural dialogue. The gallery sees art in ecumenical terms and often organizes exhibitions to show the submerged relationships of a post-modern global culture after modernism. Some of its exhibitions have included works by American and international artists such as Tom Otterness, Al Loving, Samia Halaby, Sol LeWitt, Emilio Cruz, Helen Ramsaran, SoHyun Bae, Richard Hunt, Frank Bowling, Carol Kreeger Davidson, Bob Thompson, Paul Gardere and Freddy Rodriguez.”

Whitney Museum of American Art

New York, United States of America
Official website: Whitney Museum of American Art

945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street
New York, NY 10021
General Information: (212) 570-3600

From the website: “The Whitney Museum houses one of the world’s foremost collections of twentieth-century American art. The Permanent Collection of some 12,000 works encompasses paintings, sculptures, multimedia installations, drawings, prints, and photographs — and is still growing. The Museum was founded in 1931 with a core group of 700 art objects, many of them from the personal collection of founder Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney; others were purchased by Mrs. Whitney at the time of the opening to provide a more thorough overview of American art in the early decades of the century. Mrs. Whitney favored the art of the revolutionary artists derisively called the Ashcan School, among them John Sloan, George Luks, and Everett Shinn, as well as realists such as Edward Hopper and American Scene painters John Steuart Curry and Thomas Hart Benton. Her initial gift, however, also comprised many important works by early modernists — Stuart Davis, Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, Max Weber, and others. Virtually all the works collected by the Museum for the next twenty years came through the generosity of Mrs. Whitney.”

“Although the Whitney’s acquisition budget was always rather modest, the Museum made the most of its resources by purchasing the work of living artists, particularly those who were young and not well known. It has been a long-standing tradition of the Whitney to purchase works from the Museum’s Annual and Biennial exhibitions, which began in 1932 as a showcase for recent American art. A number of the Whitney’s masterpieces came from these exhibitions, including works by Arshile Gorky, Stuart Davis, Reginald Marsh, Philip Guston, and Jasper Johns. Even today, the Museum continues to enrich its Permanent Collection via the Biennial; among the recent acquisitions are works by Mike Kelley, Matthew Barney, Louise Bourgeois, Zoe Leonard, Matthew Ritchie, and Shahzia Sikander.”

Discrepant Abstraction discussed Black artists’ exhibitions at the Whitney, in Kellie Jones, ‘It’s Not Enough to Say “Black is Beautiful” ‘: Abstraction at the Whitney, 1969-1974, in Discrepant Abstraction, inIVA and MIT Press, 2006.

From the website: “The Center for Curatorial Studies and Art in Contemporary Culture is an exhibition and research center dedicated to the study of art and exhibition practices from the 1960s to the present day. Co-founded in 1990 by Marieluise Hessel and Richard Black, the Center initiated its graduate program in curatorial studies in 1994. Since its inception, the program has awarded the M.A. degree to more than 100 students. The Center’s original 38,000-square-foot facility, designed by architect Jim Goettsch and design consultant Nada Andric, was completed in December 1991. Expanded and completely renovated in 2006, the Center now includes a student lounge where CCS graduate students can meet informally about exhibitions and class projects.”

From the website: “The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of scholarly exhibitions, lectures, and colloquia in its role as a teaching gallery. The gallery was established by a generous 1988 gift from Sue and Edward Cooley and John and Betty Gray ‘in support of the teaching of art history at Reed College, as part of an interdisciplinary educational experience that strengthens the art history component of Reed’s distinctive humanities program.’ Exhibitions are coordinated in collaboration with Reed faculty members and courses, with attention to the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. A schedule of three to four exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community work that would not otherwise be seen in the region.”
