September 20, 2015 - Thatcher Projects

Thatcher Projects is excited to announce Heidi Van Wieren's participation in the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey exhibition, Adhere.

This exhibition showcases art that uses the distinctive and unconventional medium of adhesives.  The works on view, which include several site-specific installations, incorporate various tapes, glues and stickers utilized for mark making, shading, color and texture. Artists from across the United States, Europe, and Asia will present works that demonstrate the somewhat unexpected and incredibly technical aesthetic quality of this art form. The exhibition is curated by Katherine Murdock, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey Assistant Curator.

December 19, 2014 - Thatcher Projects

A profile of Boston sculptor Bill Thompson by Anthony Penta.

A visitor to Bill's miniature industrial workshop might expect to see him making intricate machines or auto parts. Instead, what emerges are smooth, mesmerizing forms that never suggest the messy, labor-intensive processes he uses to make them.

Omar Chacon at the Children's Museum of Art

December 19, 2014 - Thatcher Projects

Thatcher Projects is pleased to announce the presentation of two large paintings and one work on paper by gallery artist, Omar Chacon at the Cynthia C. Wainwright Gallery of the Children’s Museum of the Arts in New York, on view January 22- May 3, 2015.

Curated by Children's Museum of the Arts Director of Fine Arts, Jil Weinstock, the exhibition, titled PIXELATED: SUM OF ITS PIECES, brings together emerging and mid-career artists whose work explores different means of perception. For better or worse, our lives are increasingly played out on a screen. From checking directions to playing a game on the latest bestselling app, digital technologies are a part of our everyday lives. Just as individual “pixels” are pieced together to create a larger image or message, this exhibition brings together visual artists whose works explore the intersection between art and technology, or who break down the very materials they work with into individual parts.


Exhibiting Artists: Aziz + Cucher, Omar Chacon, Christian Faur, Bradley Hart, Richard Klein, Daniel Rozin, Al Souza, and Devorah Sperber

GARY CARSLEY: SCIENCEFICTIVE at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane

May 31, 2014

The Institute of Modern Art is pleased to present the new installation Sciencefictive by Brisbane-born, Sydney-based established artist Gary Carsley. This immersive project transforms two galleries into an interior garden, seen through apertures, or Moongates, that puncture the white walls of the gallery. As visitors follow a path laid throughout the galleries, they will encounter these Moongates, which serve as windows onto gardens from around the world. These are displayed in the IMA galleries in a physical relationship to each other that they would have if Brisbane were the centre of the world. The entire work therefore functions as a giant mappa mundi, and encourages us to contemplate the complex balance between social construct, geography, and flora that characterises gardens. While today’s gardens are typically produced by landscape architects, Carsley suggests an affinity between the process of conceiving and creating a garden and that of the artist—bringing land, sea, and sky together into evocative spaces that offer journeys and compel reflection.
