    Julie Bozzi: American Food

    Sep 07, 2019 - Feb 02, 2020

    The Modern presents Julie Bozzi’s American Food, 1980–92, acquired by the Museum for the permanent collection in 2019. Bozzi’s sculptural installation consists of an oak cabinet with 13 drawers, 12 of which contain miniature reproductions of American food products, each carefully handmade by the artist and displayed under glass, like scientific specimens from a natural history museum. The food items are categorized into distinct genres, including cereals, snack cakes, and breakfast meats, which are indexed in the 13th drawer. In the exhibition, the 12 drawers containing the food models are mounted on the wall and paired with framed drawings that act as graphic keys to their contents.

    Bozzi, a longtime resident of Fort Worth, began her research for American Food in 1975 and created the work between 1980 and 1992. The miniature food facsimiles, meticulously crafted from wood, plaster, clay, paint, and other materials, represent standardized commercial American food products, from donuts to Ding-Dongs, along with “Americanized” versions of ethnic cuisines. Working in the pre-internet era, Bozzi conducted her research using methods akin to an anthropologist or explorer, collecting source material from menus, grocery stores, food stands, advertisements, and oral interviews during cross-country road trips.

    Like the landscape paintings Bozzi is also known for, American Food addresses the vernacular American experience. The installation combines aspects of Pop art, postmodernism, still life, and Americana, while underscoring the universal human impulse to collect and categorize. More than twenty years after its making, the work endures as a witty and visually engaging statement about American consumerism and its culture of abundance.

    American Food was originally organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in 1992 and traveled to the Modern in 1993 as part of a national tour.

    • Amon Carter Museum of American Art, 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76107

    When you view Scott and Stuart Gentling’s watercolors of Texas birds, you’ll want to get close. The level of detail is extraordinary—hundreds of brushstrokes make up each feather, and there are hundreds of feathers! The more time you spend with these paintings, the more you’ll appreciate the unique way the brothers instilled the natural world with a sense of order and meaning.

    Seeing in Detail is the first of two consecutive exhibitions at the Carter dedicated to these Fort Worth artists and their unique approach to painting the natural world. The museum recently announced the establishment of the Gentling Study Center, which supports the acquisition, research, and conservation of the work and archives of Scott and Stuart Gentling.

    James Surls (b. 1943), Seven and Seven Flower, 1998, pine, limbs, and steelJames Surls: Seven and Seven Flower

    When you enter the museum, take a moment to marvel at James Surls’ otherworldly sculpture Seven and Seven Flower, a complex portrait of family, land, and self. The acclaimed Texas artist transformed pine and steel into writhing blossoms suspended in space to evoke a dynamic relationship between the earthly and the spiritual. Seven and Seven Flower directly connects to the museum’s collection of twentieth-century sculpture yet transcends time as a universal expression of ethereal beauty.

    Pierre-Auguste Renoir, "Nude in an Armchair," oil on canvas, 1890. Kunsthaus Zürich, Legat Dr. Hans Schuler, 1920The First Major Exhibition of Renoir’s Work to Focus on the Human Form

    Over the course of his long career, Pierre-Auguste Renoir continually turned to the human figure for artistic inspiration. The body—particularly the nude—was the defining subject of Renoir’s artistic practice from his early days as a student copying the old masters in the Louvre to the early twentieth century, when his revolutionary style of painting inspired the masters of modernism. In recognition of the centenary of Renoir’s death, the Clark Art Institute and Kimbell Art Museum present Renoir: The Body, The Senses. This daring exhibition is the first major exploration of Renoir’s unceasing interest in the human form, and it reconsiders Renoir as a constantly evolving artist whose style moved from Realism into luminous Impressionism, culminating in the modern classicism of his last decades.

    FOCUS: Martine Gutierrez

    Nov 08, 2019 - Jan 12, 2020

    Martine Gutierrez’s photographs and videos explore gender, race, class, and sexuality, as well as conventional ideals of beauty and identity as a social construct. Her most ambitious project to date, Indigenous Woman, 2018, is a glossy, 146-page publication that closely mirrors Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine in form and production. Here, Gutierrez assumes the role of editor, writer, model, designer, ad executive, and photographer, with fictional advertising and high-fashion spreads where the artist continually reinvents herself throughout its pages. One section of the publication features her Demons series, in which Gutierrez assumes the role of Aztec deities—such as the goddess of beauty, Xochiquetzal—that were later referred to as “demons” after the Spanish conquest. As the artist states, “Indigenous Woman marries the traditional to the contemporary, the native to the post-colonial, and the marginalized to the mainstream in the pursuit of genuine selfhood, revealing cultural inequities along the way. This is a quest for identity. Of my own specifically, yes, but by digging my pretty, painted nails deeply into the dirt of my own image I am also probing the depths for some understanding of identity as a social construction.” For her FOCUS exhibition, the artist will present photographs from the Indigenous Woman series.

    Martine Gutierrez was born in 1989 in Berkeley, California, and currently lives in Brooklyn. She earned a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design in Providence. Her work has been the focus of solo exhibitions at Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, South Hadley, Massachusetts; Ryan Lee, New York; Boston University Art Galleries; Contemporary Art Museum, Raleigh; and the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, among others. She has also been included in many group exhibitions across the globe, including the 58th Venice Biennale, and at institutions such as the Hayward Gallery, London; Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford; Kunstmuseum Bonn; and the New Museum, New York. Gutierrez’s work is in public collections such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; and the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts.
