FORM Culture: Architecture for Art

At a time when many architects are using and abusing parametrics to create look-at-me buildings, Frederick Fisher stays true to his principles. For the past 30 years he has been crafting spaces for the creation and display of art and they are often so understated as to go unremarked. Artists and gallerists know that he will make them look good, and his range of accomplishment is unmatched—from PS 1 in New York and the Colby Museum extension in Maine, to the Huntington in Pasadena and an art space for the Otis Institute. He transformed a decrepit tram depot into Bergamot Station, and designed several of its gallery interiors, in addition to a dozen more he has done across LA.

For the past 10 years, Fouladi Projects has been exhibiting the work of a wide range of artists at its San Francisco gallery. Recently, the gallery, under founder Alexandra Holly Fouladi, introduced the Maker Program. Now, exhibitions featuring the work of functional artists will rotate with shows for fine artists. "The Maker Program," says Fouladi, "allows us to share the work of amazing artists and encourages us to bring the work into our lives— the integration of art and life." Intrigued by the new endeavor, we spoke with the gallerist about the program and the relationship between fine and functional art.

NASA's 'Earth As Art' Offers Eye-Catching Images 

Garden City, Kansas. Image via NASA 'Earth As Art.'Guaranteed to change your perspective on some of the world’s most beautiful places: NASA recently released hardcover, (free!) ebook, and (free!) iPad app versions of a new book titled Earth as Art, which features 75 images on 158 pages taken from space by NASA and U.S. Gealogical Survey satellites. The out-of-this world photographers—namely, the Landsat 5 and 7, Terra, Aqua, and Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellites—are capable of measuring light outside of the visible range. That means images that pop in ways your naked eye could not have conceived. The iPad version of Earth as Art allows users to zoom into the images and access additional information on selected features and the satellites used. 

Images are taken of locations all over the world, but without the typical natural wonders (no Grand Canyon, for instance) and without urban settings. The focus is mostly on natural environments, both terrestrial and aquatic, with a few cultivated land forms also presented. Locations in the United States include Desolation Canyon, Garden City (pictured above), Meandering Mississippi, Mississippi River Delta, Painted Desert, Sand Hills, and the Susitina Glacier. Land art almost seems mundane by comparison.

Ellsworth Kelly Exhibits at LACMA and Matthew Marks

Ellsworth Kelly, Colors on a Grid, 1976Showing at LACMA from January 22 through April 22, Ellsworth Kelly: Prints and Paintings is the first retrospective examination of Kelly’s exceedingly prolific print practice since 1988. The exhibition includes over 100 prints, the majority from the collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, and five paintings. The exhibition is organized thematically to explore Kelly’s mastery of key formal motifs: grids, contrast and curves.

The new Matthew Marks Gallery in West Hollywood also recently opened Ellsworth Kelly: Los Angeles, which includes six new two-panel paintings, all of which are being exhibited for the first time. Also on view are a group of 1952-54 collages, including Study for Black and White Panels, and the 1966 painting Black Over White. The facade of the newly constructed building also features an installation of a large Kelly sculpture, creating a striking example of minimalism in a city known more for colored glass. The new Matthew Marks Gallery was designed by Culver City-based architecture firm ZELLNERPLUS.
