Oklahoma City Museum of Art launches "NEW FRONTIERS: Series for Contemporary Art"
New York-based artist Jason Peters will be the first artist featured in NEW FRONTIERS.
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK.- The Oklahoma City Museum of Art launches "NEW FRONTIERS: Series for Contemporary Art". "NEW FRONTIERS" will introduce the Oklahoma City community and region to the work of individual contemporary artists and to current perspectives in the field. The Series will provide a framework for the exchange of ideas between the Museum, artists, and the community. "NEW FRONTIERS" will connect the Museum to the international dialogue on contemporary art and emphasize the importance of the art-of-our-time as a critical and dynamic part of our daily lives.

The first exhibition of "NEW FRONTIERS" will open in January 2010 with an exhibition by New York-based artist Jason Peters titled "Anti.Gravity.Material.Light." For the exhibition, Peters will create sculptural installations specifically for presentation in the Museum's galleries. The physicality of Peters' work is reinforced by a large-scale presence and use of ready-made objects. In a recent interview posted on 'Art 21': Blog, artist, writer, and art critic Georgia Kotretsos states, "He is a builder, a maker, and a worker who often turns trash into precious and delicate structures by using modular elements, which he then interconnects like building blocks to create entirely new forms." During a one-month residency at the Museum, Peters will work with area college art students in the construction and installation of his work, thus providing a great opportunity for student artists to gain significant skills and experience.

Peters recently has had solo exhibitions at White Flag Projects, St. Louis, MO (2008); Slowdown, Omaha, NE (2007); Robert Berman Gallery, Santa Monica, CA (2007); Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, PA (2006); and Center for the Contemporary Arts, Santa Fe, NM (2004). Group exhibitions include The Light Project, Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, St. Louis, MO (2008); Tooth and Nail, Stay Gold Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (2006); d.u.m.b.o. art under the bridge festival, d.u.m.b.o. arts center, Brooklyn, NY (2002-2003); as well as OPTIONS 99, 9th Biennial Exhibition, Washington Project Space, Washington, D.C. (1999). He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1999.

Following Peters' exhibition, subsequent projects will be presented, working from the platform of exhibition installments of emerging, mid-career, and established artists. In September 2010, the Museum will present the work of Norman, Oklahoma, based sculptor Jonathan Hils. Hils is currently an associate professor of sculpture at the University of Oklahoma (OU).

Oklahoma City Museum of Art Director Glen Gentele said, "NEW FRONTIERS" underscores the Museum's commitment to the art-of-our-time and complements the 19th- and 20th-century collections of American and European art on view in the Museum's galleries. It is important for the Museum to include living artists in its broad exhibition and education programs, and we look forward to further community enrichment and actively engaging audiences in thought-provoking experiences of art, through "NEW FRONTIERS."
