Guy Laramee - new documentary short film

Guy Laramee is featured in a new documentary short to be broadcast on Turkish national television. The six-minute spot, which will air on TRT2, the cultural and educational channel of Turkey's national broadcaster, follows Laramee as he works in his studio and traverses his native Montreal. The artist shares his thoughts on his work, the studio as a place of refuge, and on the daily processes of art-making as a unique form of knowledge - one that offers a radical alternative in our increasingly outcome-driven world. Directed by Abdulkerim Tever, the film includes some stunning close-up photography of Laramee's unique book-landscapes: as they are being created, as well as in their finished form.

John Noestheden at Georgia Scherman Projects, Toronto

John Noestheden will be taking part in a new group exhibition at Georgia Scherman Projects in Toronto, opening Thursday March 12th, 6-8pm. The artist will be represented by his recent work Section, 2018-20, a paint object from Noestheden's Spacelines series. These unique works are composed of cosmic particulates suspended in acrylic paint, with materials encompassing cosmic dust, meteorite grindings, bone, ash, simulated lunar regolith, carborundum, titanium ore, diamond dust, and other pure elements. These particulates are introduced into heavy body acrylics and systematically layered and dried, with the pieces composed of as many as sixty stratifications, housed on custom aluminum supports. Section's built-up textured layers in turn echo the more macro-level celestial phenomena familiar from the artist's Diamond Drawings and other works on paper, the gleam and shimmer of the work's surface extrapolating its material composition into a grander wonder at the forces of the universe. The exhibition, which also features work by Kelly Wallace, Angela Grauerholz, Stacey Spiegel, and (after) John Webber, continues at Georgia Scherman Projects through April 11th.

Doug Beube’s Wash at The Performance Arcade, New Zealand

Doug Beube will be presenting a new installation at The Performance Arcade, the innovative exhibition and performance arts event that takes place annually on the Wellington Waterfront in New Zealand. Installed in one of the event's shipping container exhibition spaces, Beube will be unveiling Wash, a new participative sculptural project exploring themes of identity and otherness. Based around an installation of specially crafted soap bars and a sink and faucet of running water, the project is the outcome of research carried out by the artist in collaboration with linguists Michael Paul Adams, Cecile Cutler, and Hiram Smith. Each of the soap bars is etched with an historical slur or epithet, and visitors will be invited to take a bar of soap and wash their hands with it, letting the ink flow out of the bar, "cleansing disdainful speech from the collective consciousness". The artist will be at the exhibition daily, and plans to livestream and Instagram the event as it unfolds. Wash will be on view at The Performance Arcade, February 26th through March 1st.
