EXHIBITIONS
July 10-September 27, 2009
ROY STAAB: FOUR SEASONS/FOUR CORNERS
Institute of Visual Arts
Inova/Kenilworth, 2155 N. Prospect Ave.
FREE
Opening: Friday, July 10, 6-9 pm
Reception to mark completion of the outdoor work & publication of catalogue: August 18, 7-9 pm
Gallery hours: Wednesday & Friday-Sunday, 12 noon-5 pm; Thursday, 12 noon-8 pm.
Minimalism and Earth Art developed simultaneously in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Several noted artists, like Michael Heizer, Nancy Holt and Alice Aycock, combined strict geometries and minimal aesthetics with the vicissitudes of land, weather and atmosphere. With Roy Staab: Four Seasons/Four Corners, a retrospective exhibition at the Institute of Visual Arts (Inova), Milwaukee-based artist Roy Staab will finally be recognized as an integral part of this movement. Staab’s early work of the 1970s shows a preoccupation with pitting solid lines against the osmotic properties of water and natural forms. This concern would grow into large-scale installations in nature, which, in using native materials from each site and no permanent fixative devices, strictly adhere to the “leave no trace” environmental ethos. Inova will present evidentiary documents of Staab’s thirty-year oeuvre of temporary geometric form-based earthworks produced in locations throughout the world, along with original works on paper, artist’s books, and related ephemera. Inova is commissioning two works for the exhibition: a major new indoor installation and an outdoor, community-participatory work sited near the Peck School of the Arts Kenilworth building.
