A survey of the newest in Contemporary Art
Curated by Leah Stuhltrager and Jacqueline Friscia

Curators of "AU COURANT" are seeking works in all mediums that push boundaries and blaze new frontiers
in Contemporary Art. Work submitted must have been created after January 2007. THE TIME IS NOW.

Deadline for submissions: March 31, 2008

About the CALL FOR ENTRIES:
Dam, Stuhltrager rarely holds CALL FOR ENTRIES... But has a glowing success record when it does.

In the gallery's ten year history, there's been only two CALL FOR ENTRIES. The first was "GRITTY" in 2004. It was a success with critics. The second, "SHOOT" in 2005, was open only to film. After screening to over 1000 viewers in three days, "SHOOT" traveled to Madrid where it represented American film at the Circulo de Bellas Artes. "SHOOT" garnered rave reviews both in New York and in Spain. (More online: http://www.damstuhltrager.com/shoot/shoot_1.htm)

THE TIME IS NOW. Deadline for submissions to "AU COURANT" : March 31, 2008.

EVENT

On Its Head


Dates:
Fri Jan 11, 2008 00:00 - Sat Jan 05, 2008

Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery presents

ON ITS HEAD
An exhibition repositioning the boundaries of art materials... Turning conventional usage upside down, inside out & onto something new.

Gallery One: Detritus Forest
an installation by Devrim Kadirbeyoglu
A requiem created from/for what has already lived: Evergreens that have grown old enough to be adored, go out of fashion, die and be disposed of. A luscious (yet dead) inverted forest of discarded Christmas trees swings softly- a poetic symbol of consumption.

Gallery Two: Devil's Triangle Reprise
an installation by Scott Kiernan
curated by Jennifer Junkermeier
A standard musical score is composed from mapping out flight patterns between US airline hubs. A new take on audio access to information, raw data is translated into sound. The instrument (a harp), its recorded melody and video translate into a new form of communicating facts.

Gallery Three: Hybrids
an installation by Guy Rozenstrich
curated by Jennifer Junkermeier
Art made with resuscitated/used acrylic blurs the seperating between painting and sculpture. Paint - a commonly used material with traditional practice - is ripped off canvas and finds its own form, exposing the classical dilemmia in defining something by what it is composed of.

Dates: January 11 - February 10
Reception: January 11 (7-9pm)
Hrs: Friday 3-8pm, Sat & Sun 12-6m

For Immediate Release: Color and texture can be a thing of beauty in the animal kingdom... But this allure can be dangerous...

(Williamsburg, Brooklyn) Ruth Marshall’s latest work translates the complex designs of nature into hand knit textiles. As accurate as humanly possible, Marshall's pelts and skins document the color, pattern, size and feel of intensely studied animal subjects from the Bronx Zoo. The artist is so precise in cases that a single chosen stitch equates to an actual individual scale. Marshall strives to capture the beauty of an animal's skin, record the significance of coloration and patterns in nature, and address the imposed and inherent symbolism in nature's system of markings.

Last December at -scopeMiami, Marshall's textiles debuted with rave reviews. In one weekend, Marshall was selected for institutional exhibits and sold out her body of textiles. Afterward, Marshall headed back into her studio and feverishly finished two major pieces. These pieces, the "Coral Snake Series" and "Ivy (the Snow Leopard)" are exhibited this November and December with Dam, Stuhltrager in Brooklyn and Miami.

RUTH MARSHALL EXHIBITS THIS SEASON:

2006 Recipient of the Bronx Council of the Arts Grant

EVENT

"Stolen Time" and "Yurt City"


Dates:
Fri Jun 23, 2006 00:00 - Sat Jun 17, 2006

For Immediate Release: Star gazing and less famous moments... Two time sensative exhibits come to Williamsburg.

Sculpture Garden: "Yurt City" installation by: Sheila Ross & Laura Ten Eyck

Special artwork by guests: Todd Knopke, Ted McGurn & Derrick Wilson

Hot summer nights under stars. Pitch your tent under the new condo construction. Dam Stuhltrager's Sculpture Garden fills with various prefabricated tents and modified yurts. Sheila Ross and Ten Eyck create a unique "tent city" for fellow artists to inhabit and modify. Functional, fantastical and vagrantly political, "Yurt City" is both a metaphor and response to the changing landscape of Williamsburg.

In form, a yurt resembles the circular domed tents made of skins or felt stretched over a collapsible lattice framework and are reminiscent of the nomadic peoples of Central Asia. A far distance in structure from a New York condo, the yurts question the nature of sophisticated living in the shade of two towering live/work buildings (65 and 63 Hope Street) where dozens of artists were displaced within the last month. The residents and their artistically converted raw spaces are to be replaced by luxury lofts after a long battle that stemmed all the way to Albany. In "Yurt City" viewers enter to find an interior space transformed with elaborately designed panels and scrims-designs of which have been informed by a hybrid of 20th century abstraction and eastern art and architectural histories, including Ottoman miniature and architectural traditions. In the adjacent luxury condo buildings, decades of artists
