Collapsing the categorical divide between action and object, PERLASYNTHICS follows a lineage of artists such as Helen Frankenthaler and Sonia Gechtoff to prioritize the gestural power of painting. For Schröder, painting is the medium best suited to register the motions and emotions of the artist and unmoor those of the beholder. PERLASYNTHICS is a meditation on painting’s physicality, both in terms of the creative process, and of a painting’s power to move through and affect a viewer.
Mier, who launched his first gallery in Los Angeles in 2015, has four primary spaces that vary in size in West Hollywood, a project space in nearby Glassell Park, another project space that occupies a former Texas gas station in Marfa, and two gallery spaces in the historic Sablon district of Brussels. Other than the Brussels’s townhouse, Mier has designed his various galleries in-house; but when he decided to open a flagship space in New York, he turned to the top gallery designer currently in practice, architect Markus Dochantschi of StudioMDA.
Jana Schröder’s roaring, frenetic compositions have been lodged in my psyche since Nino Mier’s spectacular group exhibition last summer, “Painters Paint Paintings: LA Version,” curated by art advisor Alexander Warhus. Luckily, us New Yorkers will now have a Schröder all our own. I’m so looking forward to “PERLASYNTHICS,” which showcases her large masterpieces in the artist’s signature, saturated lexicon of scribbles and curling brushwork. The body of work will be rendered in fast-drying acrylic for the first time, and with a broader color range than ever before.
Nino Mier Gallery, which was founded in Los Angeles in 2015 and has quickly been growing over the past seven years, will soon add a location in New York. Opening next January, the space will be inaugurated with a solo show of German artist Jana Schröder, who has been with the gallery since its earliest days. The New York location, located in SoHo, on Crosby Street between Spring and Broome streets, will be designed by Markus Dochantschi of StudioMDA and led by Margaret Zuckerman, who has been a director at the gallery since 2018.
For many, The Armory Show’s 2020 VIP preview marked the last moment of normal before the world paused: in a heartbeat, museums and galleries shuttered, art fairs postponed, then cancelled, and dealers rushed to sophisticated virtual platforms. But Thursday morning saw the official emergence from this long hibernation, as the first major American fair returned with VIP hours and fresh September dates at the sprawling Javits Center.
Die Ausstellung VOTE im Kunstverein Heppenheim zeigt die beiden Künstler*innen Andreas Breunig und Jana Schröder. Das von den beiden gewählte Konzept sieht einen Wettstreit vor, in dem die beiden gegeneinander antreten.
As part of its landmark 35th edition, Art Brussels announces a collaboration with internationally renowned exhibition maker Jens Hoffmann and distinguished curator and critic Piper Marshall for the flagship artistic project situated within the fair. Called Mementos: Artists’ Souvenirs, Artefacts, and other Curiosities, the exhibition brings together personal objects and artefacts from the private collections of a diverse group of artists, all of whom are represented by galleries participating in Art Brussels 2017.
You can't really appreciate this Düsseldorf-based artist unless you see the work in person. It is multi-layered, with beautiful line quality.
In her first solo show at this gallery, Jana Schröder proceeds nonchalantly through a strongly performative pictorial practice. Her large canvases appear like monuments of automatic writing—in this case, notes and doodles—of the type one might imagine psychoanalysts encouraging patients to make in order to gain access to repressed memories.
The fifth edition of NADA New York opened yesterday, and as ever, it was teeming with collectors and artists eager to set their sights on the fair’s 108 booths. The largest edition to date, this year sees exhibitors from 18 countries and 44 cities, including 51 first-time exhibitors. It also features an especially strong selection of painting, with works by a fresh generation of young painters—including these 12 you need to know.
“Present Conditional” illustrates the exceeding presence of women in the field of painting by showing current large-format works on canvas. The focus of the exhibition lies in the consistently peculiar dynamics of each artist’s respective pictorial methods rather than in pointing out a specifically female tendency or in pursuing a feminist approach.
Mier Gallery presents Present Conditional, the first group exhibition of the gallery. With eight major contemporary female painting positions, Present Conditional will form a powerful, heterogeneous and intergenerational exhibition as a visual and contextual snap-shot. Artists included: Rita Ackermann, Amy Bessone, Ida Ekblad, Sophie von Hellermann, Joyce Pensato, Jana Schröder, Odessa Straub, Anke Weyer.
“FAHRT INS BLAUE” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung by Martina Detterer.
The cool and abstract works by 1983-born artist Jana Schröder carry their own signature: not only does Jana explore the doodle structure over and over again, but in her 'Spontacts Series' she also approaches the specific aesthetic of handwriting. Jana studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Prof. Albert Oehlen and subsequently founded the GSK – Gesellschaft für Streitorientierte Kulturforschung (Society for Conflict-based Culture Reserach), which staged weekly battles between two art works from different artists.
