WORDS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 17, 2011

 

FORT WORTH, Texas - brand 10 art space is pleased to announce “WORDS” videos from the Collection of Marlene Nathan Meyerson, which opens November 4 and runs through December 18, 2011. WORDS brings together video works from the private collection of Marlene Nathan Meyerson and features the work of Anna Barham, Rainer Ganahl, Mary Reid Kelley, Christian Marclay, Laurina Paperina, Diller + Scofidio and Hugh Walton.

 

Each work in the exhibition relates to various forms of language and communication whether the work addresses language and fear (Ganahl); blends art historical references, humor and contemporary fascination with cartoon imaginations (Paperina); addresses consumer society and seduction (Diller+Scofidio); uses words as raw material as well as to express an aggressive dynamism (Walton); features tour-de-force editing of found film footage focusing on the most frequently used mode of communication (Marclay); incorporates text as visual language by creating a composition in continuous motion (Barham); or uses stop animation in combination with narrative and clever wordplay (Kelley).

 

Marlene Nathan Meyerson is a native Texan whose passion for art has taken her all over the country. Currently, she divides her time between Santa Fe, New Mexico, and New York City. Her work with Site Santa Fe, the city’s leading contemporary arts center, has elevated Santa Fe’s art scene, making it a premier destination for contemporary art in the western United States. In New York, Marlene serves on the Contemporary Arts Council of the Museum of Modern Art and the Visiting Committee of the Department of Photography of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

 

Meyerson’s love of video art, specifically those that incorporate words, stems from her lifelong love of film and literature. Both her New York apartment and home in Santa Fe are homages to video installations. The videos she has selected for the Words exhibition are both philosophical and humorous, testifying to her discerning taste as a collector and art enthusiast.

WORDS is organized by the brand 10 art space founders Heagan Bayles, Christine Bisetto, Matt Clark and Kathy Webster. An opening reception will be held on Friday, November 4, from 5 to 9 pm.
