Lynn Geesaman, Parc de Sceaux, France. 1995. Lynn Geesaman: Images June 26–September 9, 2018 North Dakota Museum of Art261 Centennial Drive Stop 7305Grand Forks, North Dakota 58202USAHours: Saturday–Monday 1–5pm T +1 701 777 4195 F +1 701 777 7305 ljreuter@ndmoa.com ndmoa.com Facebook / Instagram Share Lynn Geesaman spent two decades creating some of the most timeless images ever made of the natural world as it brushes against and mingles with human creations. The North Dakota Museum of Art has mounted this self-taught photographer’s first retrospective. Formal gardens of the Western tradition became her ostensible subject matter, but she ultimately zeroed in on the margin between artifice and nature. For example, running through her photographs is the intertwined presence of both architectural forms and vegetal sculpture. A hand-crafted folly or a remnant of archaic sculpture nestles against a topiary wall. Humans are missing, or looking away. In her words, “Much of our world is highly organized and rational. The wilderness experience is now missing, and we are captives of the everydayness of life.” She, like her imaginary mentor, Franz Kafta, creates fables of alienation. Not interested in documenting reality, she mastered a diffusion technique to suppress detail in her black-and-white photographs. Her goal was to make photographs that stepped further and further away from [...]

When you land in Tunis, all the press materials are in a language you barely understand and despite everyone’s best efforts, you constantly end up lost, looking for places you never find. You’ll spend hours of research and late-night web searches, riding air-conditioned buses between scattered events, gathering as many stories from locals as you can, arguing with taxi drivers in a mix of English, French, and Arabic, stepping over an awful lot of dead cats, and running your fingers over exquisite carvings in ancient palaces. Despite all of this, what Tunis actually is (nonetheless how an international art festival might fit into it) remains as elusive as before you ever went. Somewhere in the mix of friends and acquaintances, the newly met and sometimes haunting characters and strangers that make up the voyage, you try to get a sense of the atmosphere of a place you never imagined you’d see. You find Tunisians to be warm and sad with a dark humor, the country crawling forward despite 2000 years of colonialism and more than a half century of dictatorship, its hope unbroken even if its spirit feels tired. In a car ride between parties at 3 a.m., a Tunisian [...]

Among the artifacts assembled by curators Manuel Borja-Villel and Teresa Velázquez for their illuminating survey of Dora García’s work since 1997 are nine posters detailing the program for “The Inadequate” (2011), a 26-week investigation into radicalism, dissidence, and marginality staged by the artist in the Spanish Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale. The “occupation,” as García has referred to her Venice exhibition, commenced with a screening of Just Because Everything Is Different It Does Not Mean That Anything Has Changed (2008), an hour-length document of actor Harli Ammouchi performing imagined material by comedian Lenny Bruce, as well as various screenings, live performances, and public conversations. Some works were repeated, but The Inadequate was largely a durational event, one that was difficult to fully experience. I felt a similar sense of insufficiency visiting García’s Madrid show. Even after two lengthy visits to the exhibition, which explores the fluid interplay between performance, film, and writing in García’s practice, there were films not fully watched, letters only parsed, and performances not wholly experienced. “Second Time Around” is a mosaic of temporalities. It invites frequent, purposeful encounters with its many and concurrently operating parts. Repetition doesn’t necessarily afford clarity. On the two days I visited, [...]
