NADA HUDSON | MORGAN LEHMAN GALLERY
July 28-29, 2012
Basilica Hudson 110 South Front Street, Hudson, NY
The New Art Dealers Alliance and Basilica Hudson are pleased to announce NADA Hudson, a large scale exhibition featuring 51 projects presented by NADA members and affiliates. NADA Hudson is not an art fair, but rather a site-specific project produced by the New Art Dealers Alliance, which will build upon the character of a historic venue in showcasing contemporary sculpture, installation and performance.Morgan Lehman Gallery will be exhibiting Ryan Wallace’s Consensus series. In his Consensus sculptures, Ryan Wallace explores the nature of perception. He combines his allure to contemporary science with his skepticism of representing the spiritual and mystical, suggesting the only constant among these disciplines to be the limit of human observation. The stones are arranged in formations inside vitrines behind varied tinted films. The automotive tints act as a filter, skewing the repeated objects visual reception. The rocks themselves suggest the possibility of infinite replication, with the exception of the tinted screen, which suggests the uniqueness and malleable nature of individual perception.These mineral formations in Wallace’s trompe l’oeil sculptures are “insignificant arrangements” but that the compositions force a viewer to consider a “potential higher meaning,” creating formal exercises that can’t escape their loaded nature. He cites Giuseppe Penone’s river stones, Stonehenge, and the caves of Lascaux and Cheveux among his influences, but claims the inspiration itself is analogous to the drive behind the scientist: the desire for discovery. Wallace’s usage of pedestrian media like auto tints and vitrines in the fine art context works to break down the barriers between high versus low, art object versus scientific display.
The Basilica Hudson, built in 1884 as a foundry and forge for the manufacture of steel railway wheels, is the last great 19th century building on the Hudson waterfront. NADA is grateful for the team at Basilica Hudson who offer a home for the artistic and cultural community at large. NADA Hudson will occupy nearly 8,000 square feet of indoor space, a theatre space and well over 10,000 square feet of outdoor space.
Hudson, New York is becoming a popular satellite city for cultural activity. Hudson is home to many dealers specializing in antiques and decorative arts, while also attracting international artists like Marina Abromovic and Jason Middlebrook. Hudson is very accessible to visitors from New York City. Trains run frequently to Hudson about every hour leaving from Pennsylvania Station and the ride is about 2 hours. As always NADA Hudson will be free and open to the public.

Morgan Lehman is pleased to present Cusp, Ryan Wallace’s second solo show at the gallery. Wallace combines his research and understanding of contemporary sciences, his ability to incorporate and disguise materials in his paintings, and his laborious studio practice to examine how a planar surface stores information much like a screen, printed page or microchip. Wallace’s process based endeavors evoke familiar tropes through art and natural history.
Canvas and sheets of Mylar are layered over collaged elements to create surfaces that appear flat from a distance. Upon closer inspection a drastic and dramatic topography becomes apparent. At times this relief is trapped behind a milky layer, restricted from an unfettered view. In other works the plane is slashed and pulled apart, as if the picture were building or disintegrating, revealing the guts of a painting. Elsewhere this surfeit of information is obliterated and pushed to the edges creating compositions like those of Jo Baer or Robert Ryman, infected with Wallace’s material grit.
This grit appears as mineral formations in Wallace’s trompe l’oeil sculptures. Caught in vitrines at various stages of development these rock groupings speak to the caves of Chauvet and Lascaux, Giuseppe Penone’s river stones and hobbyist, mold makers in garages (rather than studios). This notion of the amateur craftsman as well as “bling” beauty is frequently addressed as the artist looks to free pedestrian materials like auto tints and glitter from their inherent tackiness and breathe an almost transcendent poetry into them.
Ryan Wallace was born in New York City and currently lives and works in Brooklyn and Amagansett, New York. He is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and a recent recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant as well as the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts’ Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop SIP Fellowship. In addition to being represented by Morgan Lehman Gallery his multimedia works have recently been exhibited at Rachel Uffner Gallery, ZieherSmith, The Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Rhode Island School of Design, The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, The Islip Art Museum, The Torrance Art Museum and The Katzen Arts Center at American University. Wallace’s works are held in prominent public and private collections worldwide.
