DeZeen: Buckminster Fuller anticipated the problems we're facing today, says exhibition curator

August 27, 2018 - Elenaor Gibson

Drawings and maquettes by Buckminster Fuller prove that he predicted current global issues, and demonstrate how he proposed to solve them, according to the curator of an upcoming exhibition about the late inventor.

The projects to be displayed in the Richard Buckminster Fuller, Inventions and Models exhibition – which opens at Edward Cella Art + Architecture in Los Angeles next month – present forward-thinking solutions for affordable housing and transport that make "the most with the least".

Whats on LA Pick of the Week: Stephen Berens From There to Here

August 1, 2018 - Jody Zellen

In his installation, From There to Here, Stephen Berens draws viewers to the center of the gallery. In the middle of the space, on a large two-foot high white rectangular plinth sit four round cast bronze cannonballs and three cast bronze frisbees. Entitled Projectiles (2018) they reference relics from the 1860s and 1960s. To think of frisbees as projectiles is a bit unusual, yet when viewed in the context of Stephen Berens' exhibition, it makes perfect sense. A frisbee is a flying disk that became an iconic symbol of fun and freedom for the American Counter Culture movement of the late 1960s. When the frisbees are juxtaposed with Civil War era cannonballs, they become the yin and yang of relics. One is a symbol of peace and frivolity, the other a symbol of the fight for civil rights and fraternal war.

ArtScene Magazine on Amir Zaki: Getting Lost

April 24, 2018 - Michael Shaw

"One wonders whether the grouping’s title, “Getting Lost,” far from being an allusion to discovering these entwined tree pairings on a haphazard trek, instead refers to the process that we undergo while navigating all the super-fine detail. It’s a pretty palatable way to get lost."
