"It’s interesting that when I think of my photographs I see them as projects that supercede documentation. And they are not documentation, but another art form – a newborn development."

HELÈNE AYLON: TWO SACS EN ROUTE

The activist, ecofeminist, conceptual artist Helène Aylon was preparing a multimedia installation to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki when she sadly died on April 6th of this year from complications of Covid-19. To honor the memory of this singular artist, and a project to which she was deeply committed, we are pleased to announce a modified, virtual presentation of the exhibition.

Please take a moment to experience "two sacs en route 1985-2020" virtually via the link below. The work in the exhibition stems from Helene's generative body of work stemming from her 1985 trip and actions in Japan, then to mark the fortieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Agnes Denes

The most comprehensive survey to date of works by Agnes Denes, originally scheduled to run through March 22, 2020, concluded on March 12 when The Shed was forced to temporarily close in consideration of the health and safety of its artists, audiences, and staff.

We are very pleased to announce a special presentation of selected installation views and individual images on our web site.

Initiated by The Shed's Senior Program Advisor, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Senior Curator Emma Enderby, and organized by Emma Enderby with Curatorial Assistant Adeze Wilford, the exhibition of more than 150 works created in a wide range of mediums from the 1960s to the present provided a broad overview of the artist's investigations in philosophy, mathematics, science, linguistics, psychology, ecology, and religion.

In addition to three major sculptural works, newly commissioned by The Shed, highlights of the exhibition included rediscovered video and film documentation of Denes's iconic Land Art works Wheatfield–A Confrontation (1982), and Tree Mountain—A Living Time Capsule (1992–96) for which she created a mountain with 11,000 fir trees planted in a mathematical configuration near Tampere, Finland.

Our deepest gratitude goes to the following individuals at The Shed who enabled the expansive presentation of works by this singular artist: Alex Poots, Chief Executive and Artistic Director; Hans Ulrich Obrist, Senior Program Advisor; Emma Enderby, Senior Curator; Adeze Wilford, Curatorial Assistant; Jesse Hamerman, Director of Exhibitions; Heather Reyes, Exhibitions Producer, William Hempel, Registrar, Elizabeth Berridge, Exhibitions Assistant, and Art Domantay.

Laurel O'Neill Butler of Artforum gives a very informed and thoughtful write-up of our recent show with Helène Aylon:

In 1963, two years after Helène Fisch (née Greenfield) became widowed at age thirty, she was painting a mural for a community center when a newspaper reporter asked for her name. Spontaneously, she replied, “Helène Aylon,” offering a shortened Hebraic version of her first name for her last. T...

Amy Cutler: Using Magical Materiality as Feminist Critique

Thanks to The Brooklyn Rail for this great write-up of Amy Cutler's recent work! Read it via the link below:

Amy Cutler has dedicated her career to the cultural subtexts associated with womanhood. She draws a network connecting history and mythology, revealing the guts of that animal-woman as a straw man other to an audience of power.
