Press Release:

Organized as a series of “instances” in a process of accumulation, each instance in Season Two: Follow the Mud is accompanied by an installation and activated by performances, screenings, and dialogs both at Beeler Gallery and beyond. Through voices and sounds, objects, spaces, images, movements, and text, we accumulated and uncovered hidden, suppressed, and forgotten histories in art, architecture, and politics, in order to allow individual subjectivities and personal narratives to re-emerge and intersect.

Paris-based artist Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann‘s project WATER is structured as an active score. Referring to water’s states from liquid to solid, from filtration to contamination, the artist is interested in how multiple voices from the past and the present materialize, in traversing various nodes: the disappearance of the Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura, Japan; the craft and design history of architect Charlotte Perriand during World War II; a performative tour of Glenbrow / Gunning House, a 1940 Usonian-style house in Blacklick, OH, built by sculptor Tony Smith, Theodore van Fossen (known for Rush Creek Village, Worthington, OH), and Laurence Cuneo; and a collaboration and dialog with curator and writer Julia Trotta, to present an installation of video vignettes of Forget to be afraid: A Portrait of Linda Nochlin, a film on her late grandmother, the pioneering art historian, known for her 1971 article “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?”.

The collaborative project Staples and Rubber Bands (1969-2019) of Ohio-based artist Michael Stickrod and New York-based French artist Michel Auder include sculptural installations by Stickrod that set the scene in the gallery for the viewers of Auder’s video works, including May ’68 in ’78, a newly–edited and newly subtitled video of never-before-seen interviews on the reverberation of the student movement in France in 1968, shot 10 years after. Also on view is Michel Auder’s Cleopatra (1970), which based its characters’ improvisation on Joseph Mankiewicz’s 1963 version of the film that starred Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Auder’s cast included many in the milieu of Andy Warhol’s factory, including Auder’s former wife Viva as the queen, Louis Waldon, Taylor Mead, Nico, Ondine, Ultra Violet, Andrea Feldman, Gerard Melanga, and Christopher Walken.

Brussels-based German artist Heide Hinrichs presents a series of drawings, Inscriptions, as part of second shelf, her multi-institutional collaborative book acquisition project that began in 2018 at Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp, Belgium, and partnering with Beeler Gallery / Packard Library at Columbus College of Art & Design, and University of Bristol, UK. As part of the process of publishing a book on the project, Beeler Gallery / Packard Library and these partner institutions participate in the Classroom Series at New York Art Book Fair at MoMA PS1 on September 20, 2019.

The graphic identity for Season Two is by Vier5, the graphic design duo known for their irreverent take on design for institutional communication and their work for the quinquennial contemporary art exhibition documenta 14, which took place in Kassel, Germany and Athens, Greece in 2017. Their collaboration with Beeler Gallery is their first American project.

Writing on the Instances with Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann is conducted by Daniel Marcus. Writing on the Instances with Michel Auder + Michael Stickrod is conducted by Robert Slifkin. Writing on each Instance appears in the form of posters designed by Vier5.
