Some images from Nevada Museum of Art’s Late Harvest exhibition below:
Late Harvest juxtaposes contemporary art made using taxidermy, entomology and other related elements with historically significant wildlife paintings, resulting in intriguing parallels and startling aesthetic contrasts. The exhibition seeks to simultaneously confirm and subvert viewers’ preconceptions of the place of animals in culture. An illustrated exhibition catalogue will be available through the museum.
Artists include: Petah Coyne, Kate Clark, Wim Delvoye, Damien Hirst, Idiots (Afke Golsteijn and Floris Bakker), Robert Kuhn, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, David Shrigley, and Andrew Zuckerman.
Sheikh Saoud Mohammad Ali Al-Thani commissioned Andrew to create a body of work at Lubara, home to the Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation. Susanna Cucco creative directed and designed a special edition book with images from the project.
Four new pieces by Andrew Zuckerman have premiered at the Barneys New York’s Madison Avenue windows in conjunction with the retailer’s celebration of Dries Van Noten (on view through April 27th).
The films Cycle, Emergence, Flight, and Variance, establish uncommon fields of vision that amplify the transitory mechanics of change in nature. Playing with the compression and expansion of time and motion – a dozen species of flowers bloom and decay, the two week emergence of a swallowtail from chrysalis unfolds in minutes, flight patterns are slowed to 1/ 600th of their speed, a taxonomical collection of butterfly species from around the world becomes animate – the installation renders transient moments tangible, and provides a portal for the viewer to experience the fluctuations and nuances of engineering in our ecological landscapes.
Andrew spent several months working with Bono’s (RED) organization to create the catalogue imagery for Jony Ive and Marc Newson’s (RED) design auction at Sotheby’s, which will be held on November 23rd. All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.
