Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video

Advertisement for the Guggenheim

Carrie Mae Weems is a socially motivated artist whose works invite contemplation of race, gender, and class. Increasingly, she has broadened her view to include global struggles for equality and justice. Comprehensive in scope, this retrospective primarily features photographs, including the groundbreaking Kitchen Table Series (1990), but also presents written texts, audio recordings, and videos. The exhibition traces the evolution of Weems’s career over the last 30 years, from her early documentary and autobiographical photographic series to the more conceptual and philosophically complex works that have placed her at the forefront of contemporary art.

Since his emergence as an artist in the 1980s, Christopher Wool has forged an agile, highly focused practice that ranges across processes and mediums, paying special attention to the complexities of painting. Filling the museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda and an adjacent gallery, the exhibition Christopher Wool explores the artist’s nuanced engagement with the question of how to make a picture.

James Turrell, Aten Reign

Advertisement for the Guggenheim

This project was my second time working with the Guggenheim creative staff, creating the advertising for James Turrell’s first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980. Turrell’s work focuses on groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space. The core of the show and the  artwork featured in the ad is called Aten Reign, a major new project that recasts the Guggenheim rotunda as an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light. One of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived. The exhibition won numerous praise from the media, with The New York Times calling it “a ravishing…heightened sensory experience”.

Picasso, Black and White

For this project, I collaborated with another designer to create a set of ads for the Guggenheim’s Picasso Black & White  exhibition. They wanted animation and interactivity that would blend well with their modern and polished style, while also being eye catching. The project required extensive coordination with rights management, the museums in-house design staff,  as well as The New York Times advertising department; all to deliver a finished product that the client loved.

Lake Wononscopomuc Association

Non For-Profit

Bill Littauer (head of the lake association) approached me wanting to redesign their original site, which they felt wasn’t as clear and user friendly as it could have been, making it difficult for people in town and on the Board to find what they needed with the least amount of effort. So after some initial meetings we decided on a direction for the project, which was to keep some of the some of the same feel as the old one, while significantly upgrading the overall experience and navigation; and making it more flexible to edit and update the wealth of content that they already had. In the end, the Board (Bill included) couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome, providing a convenient portal to the history and happenings at the lake.

Thomas Blagden

Watercolorist & Painter

After Thomas passed away in 2010, the Blagden family came to me wanting a website to commemorate his subtle watercolor interpretations, inspired by his time in the Adirondack’s and northern New England. The website was a perfect fit, emphasizing Tom’s persona, calm and reserved, yet delightfully engaging. The site also served as a vehicle to showcase his work to future interested galleries and museums.

Robert Cronin

Artist

Robert Cronin is one of the Berkshires better kept secrets, having shown internationally during the 70’s,  80’s & 90’s, as well as having several permanent collections in Universities and Private Estates alike. Robert came to me asking for something that was very minimal and refined, so that the artwork could take center stage, which ranged from sculpture and figurative, to more recently a modernist “enclosure series”. The end result couldn’t have been a better fit, with the ability to easily add and edit content, such as an ever expanding and impressive portfolio and résumé.
