2 JUN: Mando Marie - On Trick (SF, CA)

ONE TRICK
A SOLO EXHIBITION BY
MANDO MARIE (Her Stencil Archive)

Opening Reception - Saturday, June 2nd at 12pm
Showing Through - Friday, June 22nd

First Amendment Gallery is pleased to announce “One Trick” a solo exhibition by Mando Marie.  Amanda Marie also known by her artist moniker 'Mando Marie' born 1981, is an American painter formerly based in Colorado, and currently based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Mando  exhibits in both the United States and Europe. She trained at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and is best known for her work as a stencilist, including large scale street art designs.


Amanda Marie uses graphic stencils and images redolent of 'Golden Age' storybook imagery. She frequently features the signature characters of a young boy and girl. In 2012, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art held a solo exhibition of her work and noted that these stylised figures: "seem to have been lifted from the pages of a mid-twentieth century children’s book and have traded the protective home of childhood nostalgia for a slightly more adventurous and unsettling world, somewhere between dream and reality”. Alongside recurring graphic themes of children and animals, she favors twin, repeated or mirrored imagery, developed with multiple uses of the same stencil on the artwork.

Das Schneiden von Stencils (Schablonen) ist eine der bekanntesten künstlerischen Techniken der Street Art. Ursprünglich als technisches Hilfsmittel zur schnellen und seriellen Verbreitung politischer Botschaften im öffentlichen Raum entwickelt, haben sich Schablonen Graffiti zu einem völlig eigenständigen Kunstgenre entwickelt, welches die Street Art prägt wie kein anderes.

Mit CUT OUT versammeln die beiden Kuratoren Felix Rau (eins92) und Rudolf David Klöckner (urbanshit) 18 der derzeit interessantesten europäischen Stencilkünstler in einer Ausstellung. Mit jeweils genau einem Werk pro Künstler spiegelt die international besetzte Gruppenausstellung nicht nur den Status Quo der Stencilkunst wider, sondern bringt auch die Kunst der Schablonen-Graffiti in konzentrierter Form zurück nach Hamburg.

Cutting out stencils is one of the most known techniques of street art. The original purpose of stencils was to quickly reproduce and spread political messages in public space. By now, they have developed to an individual art genre with heavy influence on street art.

Through the CUT OUT-show, the two curators Felix Rau (eins92) and Rudolf David Klöckner (urbanshit), gather eighteen of the most interesting stencil artists of Europe under one roof. By exhibiting one work per artist, the show not only reflects the status quo of stencil art but also brings back stencil art to Hamburg in a highly concentrated form.

Coming Soon: Shepard Fairey's New LA Show and Hulu Doc

After ‘Hope,’ and Lawsuit, Shepard Fairey Tries Damage Control
By JORI FINKELNOV. 3, 2017 (LINK)

LOS ANGELES — By just about any measure, it’s been a long time since the street artist Shepard Fairey managed to capture the optimism of Barack Obama’s candidacy in his “Hope” poster, the stylized portrait in red, white and blue tones that easily ranks as the most famous, also ubiquitous, artwork of 2008.

Mr. Fairey’s oldest daughter, then 2 years old, is now almost a teenager. The “Hope” image became the subject of a copyright infringement lawsuit by The Associated Press that was both expensive and embarrassing for the artist. Mr. Fairey, who is 47, has since gone on to create art for activist movements like Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter and the Women’s March.

And now “Damaged” — his biggest gallery show yet, with about 200 new paintings, prints and illustrations made since 2015 — is set to open on Nov. 11 in a Chinatown warehouse, the same day a documentary on the artist has its premiere on Hulu. The mood of the exhibition: what happens when hope gets trampled but not killed.

15 April: Adam Feibelman's Personal Provenance (SF, CA)

As artist Adam Feibelman found on a recent trip to walk the rugged trails traversing the border between Tucson and Nogales, the sharp divisions ingrained in national identities and our senses of place are rendered hazily ambiguous as the paths between nations wind off into the distance—no hard line in sight.  In a similar sense, the work of Taravat Talepasand capitalizes on the image systems that indoctrinate Iranian identity, state power and gender, and how these notions are portrayed within and augmented through a steady stream of American popular culture.  Through their respective exhibitions, Adam Feibelman’s Personal Provenance and Taravat Talepasand’s Born in Iran, Made in America, the artists explore the critical boundaries and borders that separate places and people—questioning, transgressing and meditating on both the systems of separation as well as a seemingly growing need for intensifying said divisions.
