Rodrigo Valenzuela
Labor Standards

OCT 21, 2017 – APR 22, 2018

This exhibition in the Jubitz Center for Modern and Contemporary Art features two videos by Rodrigo Valenzuela (born 1982 in Chile, lives and works in Los Angeles). Each explores a specific aspect of labor in the United States today. Prole (2015) follows a group of Spanish-speaking men as they casually move about an empty room discussing the way they work, how they present themselves as laborers, and their views of unionizing. Valenzuela’s newest ... (read more)

Sydney Walters Reviews Bettina Hubby’s Panacea Project on Art and Cake 9.28.17

“The Panacea Project” Nudges Funny Bones at Werkartz
By Sydney Walters
Through September 30th
Artist Bettina Hubby projects an astute lesson of survival into the art game: humor is necessary. While humor becomes more biting and sarcastic in media, The Panacea Project rejects this defensive and deflective humor and charges forth with a delightful eruption of unadulterated bliss. “I’m just trying to bombard people with joyous imagery and comedy art that deals with humor and happiness…I am also using it as a ...

Michael Shaw reviews Heath Bunting’s The Status Project in art ltd. 9.23.17

Heath Bunting’s dense, graphic mappings of very specific social statistics are, certainly as statistical graphs go, visually alluring. They become more resonant and consequential upon viewing via quirky titles what they purport to chart: “a natural person able to provide current full name colour map of influence;” “a terrorist background map of influence;” “the reach of being sexually active map of influence,” among other provocatively titled inkjet prints. The works are part of Bunting’s “Status Project,” which is his attempt to map “... (read more)

Richard Speer reviews Rodrigo Valenzuela’s General Song on Visual Art Source 9.21.17

Rodrigo Valenzuela
Upfor Gallery, Portland, Oregon
Recommendation by Richard Speer
Continuing through October 14, 2017
Rodrigo Valenzuela’s memorable 2015 exhibition, “Hedonic Reversal,” was a compassionate critique of the “ruin-porn” photography genre, wherein Valenzuela pointedly avoided photographing derelict buildings — opting instead to create stylized ruins in his studio. His strategy is similar in “General Song,” a meditation on borders, barriers, and protest barricades. None are photographed in-situ, all of them were constructed and photographed in his studio. This tactic affords the artist not only ... (read more)

EXPO Chicago 2017 Highlights

EXPO Chicago, like many of its art fair counterparts, contains the requisite grabby, show-stoppers we’ve come to expect. However, after the initial lure of the spectacle fades, the eye begins to locate the stronger, more contemplative works emerging from the depths of the exhibitor booths. The works of these six artists are prime examples of pieces that reward a slower viewing, that expand, deepen and reveal more, the longer you look. – Robin Dluzen, Chicago Contributor
