Reviews: Dan Walsh at Paula Cooper Gallery

Dan Walsh's most recent solo exhibition at Paula Cooper Gallery (on view January 5 through February 4, 2017) garnered favorable reviews in ARTnews and on Art Critical.

In her review for artcritical.com, "The Hermetic and the Everyday: Dan Walsh at Paula Cooper," Marjorie Welish poses the question, "Can technical doggedness produce compelling art?" In the text that follows, Welish confirms that in the case of Dan Walsh, the answer is a resounding "yes."

In "Meditative Lines and a Good Egg," writer Andy Battaglia discusses Walsh's newest works based on permutations of Walsh's signature repeating lozenge-shaped form, as well as two large-scale floor sculptures and artist books. “I call myself a cheating Sol LeWitt," Walsh notes in the article, "I’m making judgement calls as I go.”

"Portrait of the Artist" (detail) on the cover of RISD XYZ.
Shahzia Sikander's "Portrait of the Artist" on the cover of RISD XYZ

Pace Prints collaborator and Rhode Island School of Design alum Shahzia Sikander was featured on the Winter 2017 issue of the school's alumni magazine RISD XYZ. The cover image is a detail taken from Sikander's portfolio of four etchings, Portrait of the Artist, published by Pace Editions, Inc.

In the article, Sikander discusses the mercurial nature of identity, the range of cultural influences she experienced as a child and through educational institutions, the conflicting experience of living in Pakistan under a military regime, and her personal onus to explain Pakistani and Muslim heritage both as an artist and parent. Sikander also calls for greater representation of the Muslim-American experience, emphasizing its inherent plurality, by way of children's books that celebrate a Muslim child’s heritage, family, culture and tradition and museums for Islamic art. Sikander also shares powerful words for artists who are grappling with the results of the 2016 presidential election:

"Now, the incendiary anti-Muslim rhetoric spreading in certain parts of the US is dangerous and suffocating. It robs all of us of our innate humanity and empathy. However, while I am deeply troubled and disheartened by the anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-earth and pro-bigotry sentiments that emerged from the 2016 presidential election here in the US, I also feel newly energized to return to the studio. This is a moment when I am most charged as an artist—when I feel the urgency and clarity to speak out. In so many ways, making art is never about seeking stability in uncertain times; it is about confronting uncertainty."

The Winter 2017 issue of RISD XYZ will be available online in January.

Jenny Holzer creates text piece for New York Aids Memorial

Jenny Holzer has created a text-based piece for the New York City Aids memorial, now open to the public at St. Vincent's Triangle park on West 12th Street and 7th Avenue. The piece excerpts Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself," contextualized here in commemoration of the men, women and children who lost their lives to AIDS. Urban planners Christopher Tepper and Paul Kelterborn initiated the campaign for the monument in 2011 and the final installation incorporates an 18-foot high canopy structure designed by the architecture studio ai.

In conversation with The Art Newspaper in 2015, Holzer said, "Excerpts from 'Song of Myself' by Walt Whitman [first published in 1855] are the text on the granite paving stones. The Whitman poem is a beauty from a man in full and glad possession of his body."

A look back at Pace Prints in the News in 2016

From Dan Walsh's "Elements" in The Paris Review Daily to Shahzia Sikander's op-ed "We need diverse influences" in The Los Angeles Times, it's been an exciting year in the news for Pace Prints collaborators.

Emilio Perez's newest screenprint, Dream Season was featured in numerous publications including The Creators Project and The Daily Beast, concurrent to the artist's installation for Times Square Arts' and Times Square Advertising Coalition's Midnight Moment series.

Artsy highlighted both Jenny Holzer and Shahzia Sikander's newest etchings in "What New Collectors Need to Know about Buying Prints" alongside advice for collecting prints from Pace Prints Communications Manager Christina Graham. Sikander published a powerful op-ed in The Los Angeles Times calling for more mercurial understanding of identity and a prioritization of the creative process as a means to empathy.

Prints by KAWS were featured in Allure Magazine's "10 Beautiful Things" (May, 2016) and on the cover of Milk Magazine Hong Kong (March 2016, Issue 766).

"Cutouts," 2016 at The Journal Gallery, New York
Daniel Heidkamp in Artspace's Top Picks from NADA Miami Beach 2016

Pace Prints collaborator Daniel Heidkamp was featured in Artspace's list The 27 Best Paintings of NADA Miami Beach 2016. The painting, titled Cutouts, was made in preparation for his forthcoming exhibition of collages and cutout-inspired prints at Pace Prints.

Andrew M. Goldstein writes, "To prepare for his upcoming 2017 show of collages at Pace Prints, the in-demand landscape painter Daniel Heidkamp left Brooklyn for the bucolic calm of an artists’ retreat in Bearsville, New York, where he assembled the materials for the work. This generously sized painting commemorates that period, with the components of his collages shown scattered around the room—the makings of one of his signature bouncy castles, a recurring motif, lies on the table—and with a rolling stretch of autumnal nature revealing itself beautifully through the window, flooding the scene with color."
