New Editions: Beatriz Milhazes | Water Dreaming + Snake Dreaming

Durham Press is pleased to announce two new prints by Brazilian painter Beatriz Milhazes Water Dreaming and Snake Dreaming, 2013. The prints were proofed over a two week stay this summer and will be made in an edition of forty, and released by the end of the year. Each print measures 37 x 46 1/2 inches (94 x 118 cm) and is a combination of a twenty piece woodblock and thirteen layers of silkscreen. The central flower comes from a new series of drawings that she describes as a spontaneous dialogue between recent observations of tribal art (mostly African) and Op Art from the sixties.

Milhazes is an avid printmaker. She has worked almost exclusively with Durham Press for the past seventeen years and has created an impressive body of work. Her prints have been exhibited widely alongside her paintings and collages, and documented in numerous publications. In 2012, the prints were exhibited in a show that traveled throughout Brazil organized by the SESC (Serviço Social do Comércio), and in 2011, Whitechapel, London curated an extensive print show in the U.S. at the Gallery at Windsor, which included a comprehensive catalog of the prints, their history and development.

Milhazes’s international success has been growing since her participation in the 1995 Carnegie International and her representation of Brazil in the 2003 Venice Biennale. The wide appeal of her work has captured collectors worldwide. Her work has been exhibited at Fondation Beyeler, Basel; Fondation Cartier, Paris; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon; MALBA-Fundación Costantini, Buenos Aires; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, England; and the Birmingham Museum, Alabama. In 2014, she will open a solo exhibit at the new Pérez Art Museum in Miami.

The prints will be on view from November 6th through 10th at the IFPDA Print Fair in New York. The prints are available directly through Durham Press. Please contact Gwyneth Fearnhead for more information, [email protected]

Our facility houses a gallery and two printmaking studios, with silkscreen, hydraulic, and etching presses, as well as a large wood and metal shop. These studios and workspaces allow visiting artists the tools they need to explore the possibilities of printmaking and push the boundaries of this traditionally two dimensional media. Durham Press has been a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association since 2000 and has participated in the Print Fair since 2002.

On View: Mickalene Thomas @ Galerie Volkshaus

MTBlog

Absolut Art Bureau, the unit within The Absolut Company responsible for global art initiatives, is pleased to announce a collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist Mickalene Thomas on a large-scale art bar installation that will be in operation during Art Basel’s show in Basel (June 13 – 16, 2013).

The ambitious installation, Better Days, will transform the Galerie at Volkshaus, in downtown Basel, into an immersive art experience for the duration of the show. It is inspired by a theatrical play ‘Put a Little Sugar in my Bowl’ and parties hosted by Thomas’s mother in the late ‘70s.

Better Days will present a nightly programme curated by Mickalene Thomas, including live performances and appearances by guest DJs. The bar will serve bespoke ABSOLUT cocktails designed by the artist in keeping with the installation’s theme.

Thomas will transform the Galerie at Volkshaus, Basel into an apartment environment that takes its inspiration from the parties hosted by her mother and long-time muse in the late ‘70s.

Better Days is Mickalene Thomas’s literal and conceptual reconstruction of the 1970s domestic aesthetic, complete with faux wood panelling and wallpaper as well as custom sofas reupholstered with the artist’s signature textiles. Each evening, Thomas will introduce guest and resident DJ performers, including DJ YSL, Derrick Adams and Simon de Pury, who will emulate the disco soundtracks of her mother’s parties. Among the guest performers will be local jazz musicians, as well as Solange Knowles, the internationally-renowned recording artist who has collaborated with Thomas on several recent creative projects.
