(video still) Brian Bress, Creative Ideas for Every Season, 2010, High definition video, color, sound. Courtesy of the artist and Cherry and Martin, Los Angeles.
This Wednesday, Los Angeles based Brian Bress will be the next PSU MFA Studio Lecture Series speaker
. The work seems faux innocent and sarcastic at the same time recalling artists like Paul McCarthy, George Condo and Man Ray. The fact that he is satirizing the over-use/abuse of the term "creative" definitely fits the Portland art scene's growing dissatisfaction with such an indiscriminate word.
Here's the PR: "Brian Bress is a Los Angeles-based artist, whose dryly comic, character-driven photos and videos are populated with richly collaged and constructed sets and costumes. Recent solo shows include: Cherry and Martin, LA; New Museum, New York, USA (both 2012); Santa Barbara Museum of Art (2012); and Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, USA (2011). Forthcoming exhibitions include Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, Italy and Galeria Marta Cervera, Madrid, Spain (both 2013)."
Lecture: November 28th 7:00PM | Free
