George Legrady in STARGAZERS: Intersections of Contemporary Art & Astronomy Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion, Costa Mesa, CA

March 16, 2019 - Jennie E. Park

The Stargazers show at the Frank M. Doyle Arts Pavilion in Costa Mesa, curated by gallery director Tyler Stallings to coincide with the opening of Orange Coast College’s state-of-the-art planetarium this month, interweaves scientific explorations of the cosmos with the mysticism of Jung’s collective unconscious. While created separately by five artists and three artist teams over the course of several years, the works’ interpretive liberties with astronomy data and history reflect stunningly common colors, placidity and mandala-like geometries evidencing Jung’s notion of synchronicity, or the uncanny coincidence of events pointing to a shared undercurrent of symbols and aspirations. Through meaningfully warped timeframes and spatial scales, the works guide us in turn through the cosmos—macrocosmically with the aid of astronomical tools, and microcosmically through our bodies as cavities of spiritual wonder—collectively inviting us to reconsider and resolve our position within it.

Award: John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship

April 6, 2016

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has awarded George Legrady with a 2016 Guggenheim Fellowship in support of his art. 

"Throughout his artistic career, Legrady has pursued a highly visible experimental and research-oriented artistic practice that integrates digital computer technologies with photography, conceptual art, and art theory. The proposed artwork to be realized with support of the Guggenheim Fellowship is an installation titled, “Aesthetic Metavision,” that builds on a recently realized series of projects, “Swarm Vision”, “Exquisite Vision”, “AutoVision,” which have evolved out of bridging arts and engineering questions concerned with training an autonomous multi-camera system to acquire aesthetics-defined behavior and agency."
