“When I posted that [Ree Morton] article on Instagram (I also follow the Ree Morton hashtag) it just exploded with comments of solidarity from artists. I think it felt like therapy to a lot of people. I had some one on one conversations with some women who said that they felt they were part of the same conversation that Ree was involved in back in the 70’s about how to be a mother and an artist.”
Parker Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The gallery opened in May of 2017 with a recreation of a landmark 1972 exhibition called “Nut Art,” pairing artworks from the original exhibition together with works by contemporary Los Angeles artists working within an analogous state of mind.
“I want to move from the inside-out. A sound: Whirrrrrrrr. This is the voice of an Osterizer Galaxie; the household blender was a popular domestic staple of the 70s and 80s. Outfitted with heavy-duty motors, the appliance assisted mostly women in shredding, beating, and creaming their dreams and duties. This is the object and tool of our background: the Osterizer Galaxie used by Thea Yabut in her studio, where ingredients whirr into a slimy soup before becoming the hardened forms we see in VIBRISSA. Vibrissae are the hairs around an animal’s snout. Sensing the world around them, these organs of touch create knowledge through physical contact.”

Where is the great art being made in America today? In this episode of In Other Words, guests Chrissie Iles (Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz curator at the Whitney Museum of American art), Carolyn Ramo (executive director, Artadia) and Hamza Walker (executive director, LAXART) join host Charlotte Burns to discuss the subject.
They talk about art being made throughout the United States in places outside the major market hubs, as well as ways to broaden the lens through which we view contemporary art in this country. “We’re currently in an extremely dynamic moment for emerging artists and for culture,” Iles says in conversation with our other guests, who talk about how collectors and curators might discover—and steward—the art of their region.“
