Critical Focus: Monique Crine

From: May 14 2015 @ 12:00 am
To: June 28 2015 @ 11:59 pm

WHERE: MCA Denver 1485 Delgany Denver, CO 80202

This exhibition highlights recent work by Denver-based artist, Monique Crine. Working from her own photographs, Crine creates arresting paintings that explore different American archetypes. For this series, she focuses on the professional football player, creating both heroic and tragic representations of these (literally) larger-than-life figures. Her paintings are strikingly indebted to film—especially the classic, Hollywood spectacles of the mid-20th century. The drama of lighting, pose, and costume transform individual players into cinematic characters. This tension between stylized characters and real people parallels precisely how perceptions of celebrities frequently skirt the boundary between reality and fantasy. Monique Crine was born in Heidelberg, Germany. She lives and works in Denver. Her work has been presented at Goodwin Fine Art, Denver; Pirate: Contemporary Art, Denver; The Dairy Center, Boulder, CO; Hartell Gallery, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY; and Tjaden Gallery, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY.

Kim Dorland: Everyday Monsters

From: May 14 2015 @ 12:00 pm
To: June 28 2015 @ 7:00 pm

WHERE: MCA Denver 1485 Delgany St Denver, CO 80202

Kim Dorland is a painter whose work explores themes that resonate far beyond his own personal experience. Taking on such unusual subjects as zombies, Sasquatch, and Jason of Friday the 13th, as well as providing new perspectives on more conventional subjects such as sunsets, landscapes, and domestic scenes, his dark (and at times darkly comic) paintings have a dense physical presence that transcend their subject matter. Kim Dorland was born in 1974 in Alberta, Canada. He lives and works in Toronto, Canada. His work has been the subject of recent solo presentations at Contemporary Calgary; Angell Gallery, Toronto; McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinberg, Ontario; Mike Weiss Gallery, New York; and Gallery Bianca, Palermo, Italy. Kim Dorland received his M.F.A. from York University in Toronto, Ontario. Kim Dorland: Everyday Monsters will be presented in the David and Laura Merage Foundation Photography Gallery and the Luisa & Chris Law Gallery. The exhibition is curated by MCA Denver director and Chief Animator, Adam Lerner and organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. MCA Denver is grateful to Wayne F.J. Yakes, M.D. for his support of this exhibition.

Thief Among Thieves

From: May 14 2015 @ 12:00 pm
To: June 28 2015 @ 7:00 pm

WHERE: MCA Denver 1485 Delgany St Denver, CO 80202

Thief Among Thieves is a group exhibition featuring the work of more than twenty artists working in a broad range of styles and media. Rather than surveying a single theme, the exhibition instead draws connections between the world of art and the world we live in. The title is drawn from the idea that artists continually borrow from the world around them – ”stealing” from both art history and from any place–past or present, real or imagined. Artists featured in the exhibition include: Matthew Brandt, Miguel Calderón, Cynthia Daignault, Sam Falls, Theaster Gates, Patrick Lee, Nathan Mabry, Pedro Reyes, Pedro Reyes, Amanda Ross-Ho, Raqib Shaw, and others. Thief Among Thieves will be presented on the second floor of MCA Denver in the Natasha Congdon Gallery, Vicki & Kent Logan Promenade Space, Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery, and the Mary Caulkins & Karl Kister Gallery. This exhibition is co-organized by Nora Burnett Abrams and Adam Lerner.
