"Remote Viewing (Invented Worlds in Recent Painting and Drawing)"
2006-06-16 until 2006-08-27
Saint Louis Art Museum
St. Louis, MO, USA

At the Saint Louis Art Museum, Remote Viewing features more than 80 works by eight influential contemporary artists including Franz Ackermann, Steve DiBenedetto, Carroll Dunham, Ati Maier, The Saint Louis Art Museum announces the June 18 opening of Remote Viewing (Invented Worlds in Recent Painting and Drawing), a free exhibition that brings to St. Louis more than 80 works by eight dynamic contemporary artists. Traveling to the city from the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Remote Viewing invites visitors to discover how contemporary art can transform the chaos and information overload of our daily lives into “invented worlds” that exist somewhere between abstraction and representation. Using intense color, strong graphics, and varied scale, the artists featured in this exhibition—Franz Ackermann, Steve DiBenedetto, Carroll Dunham, Ati Maier, Julie Mehretu, Matthew Ritchie, Alexander Ross, and Terry Winters—seduce viewers into futuristic societies within the galleries, creating the illusion of an alternate universe.

Visitors of Remote Viewing (Invented Worlds in Recent Painting and Drawing) will have the unique opportunity to experience the first iPod-delivered audio/visual tour offered by the Saint Louis Art Museum. The free interactive tour includes interviews with the artists featured in the exhibition, behind-the-scenes photos of the artists at work in their studios, and commentary by Robin Clark, associate curator of contemporary art at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

Remote Viewing (Invented Worlds in Recent Painting and Drawing) was organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Curated in St. Louis by Robin Clark, associate curator of contemporary art, with the assistance of Emmeline Erikson, curatorial assistant for modern art, and Elliott Zooey Martin, Aronson graduate intern for contemporary art, the exhibition will be on view in the Museum’s Main Exhibition Galleries through August 27, 2006.
