Susan Beiner returns to form & concept for a solo exhibition featuring a large-scale, modular installation. The wall sculptures will feature Beiner’s characteristic floral forms, a porcelain garden of tactile blooms with allusions to architectural structures. Though it reads as one unit, each piece will be a unique work, showcasing Beiner’s vocabulary of encrusted forms.   “The installation will be encrusted and glazed in different ways,” Beiner explains. “There’s a pattern, but the surface will bring variation to a large…

The group exhibition Beyond Punch Cards was inspired by a woman who changed the world. Mathematician Ada Lovelace studied the complex engineering behind the Jacquard loom to invent the first computational algorithm in 1840.“The analytical engine will weave algebraic patterns like Jacquard looms weave flowers and leaves,” Lovelace said. Since that pivotal moment, artists, designers and technologists from across the globe have explored the links between weaving and coding. In Beyond Punch Cards, an official satellite show of the CURRENTS…

Beyond Punch Cards | CURRENTS Reception

June 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Santa Fe, NM 87501 United States

"We’re asking big questions about how weaving and coding can work together to change our perceptions of the world," says co-curator Renata de Carvalho Gaui. "Can these practices converge to illustrate different identities, keep cultures and history alive, or resist obsolescence?”   Renata de Carvalho Gaui and Francesca Rodriguez Sawaya united an international group of artists who straddle the line between weaving and coding. The participating artists will be decidedly transdisciplinary. Glowing textiles, robotic looms, and “woven” projections are among…

“My works are cause and effect relationships in material form,” says artist Erik Gellert. “Their hand rolled nature gives each coil a slight irregularity and a distinction which informs the overall shape and patterns that comprise each work.”   Using hundreds of hand-rolled coils of clay, Gellert carefully layers the ribbons atop each other, creating a thick slab of undulating clay which protrudes and recedes into coral-like forms. The tendrils are then coated with acrylic paint to capture more vivid,…
