APROPOS OF NOTHING

Jim Nolan

 

Opening Reception: Friday, May 30, 2014, 6-8pm

Exhibition runs through July 11, 2014.

 

Why and what-for? asks Jim Nolan in his second solo exhibition at Art Palace, APROPOS OF NOTHING. Fascinated by artificial flowers and the 99¢ stores that sell them, Nolan has assembled a series of sculptures, paintings and photographs that are equal parts formal and feral. The work in APROPOS OF NOTHING maintains the identity of its low-brow origin while performing as deadpan lyrical paintings and monolithic objects. Nolan addresses his ongoing concerns in a unique visual language, taking a decidedly blue collar stance to deliver poignant jabs at art history.

Jim Nolan
Today is Tomorrow
RECEPTION: FEB 25 6-8PM

February 25 – April 2, 2011

In his debut show at Art Palace, Today is Tomorrow, Jim Nolan combines the aesthetics of working class labor and underground music culture with the language of Minimalism to create off-hand and irreverent installations, sculptures and photographs. The stereo speaker stands in for the Minimalist cube in Nolan’s new work “There Was No Encore”, a wall-scaled assembly of outmoded speakers. Nolan mars High Minimalism’s precision through purposefully DIY gestures that ask the viewer to consider discarded cultural artifacts and everyday materials for their formal qualities as well as their cultural content.

About the Artist:
Jim Nolan’s work has been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sara Meltzer Gallery, New York, Tastes Like Chicken Art Space, Brooklyn and DEEPSPACENEWYORK. Most recently, Nolan collaborated with Mick Johnson on (v)=Variable Project. His work has been covered in Time Out New York, New Art Examiner, and Artnet.
