Jesse Aron Green and Michael Wang present new work in the Main Gallery of the Carpenter Center
Jesse Aron Green: Paranoia Places its Faith in Exposure. September 13-October 7, 2012. Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts.
CAMBRIDGE, MASS.- Jesse Aron Green is presenting a new body of work, consisting of over forty paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and video-works, titled Paranoia Places Its Faith in Exposure. The phrase is borrowed from a poem of the same name by Brian Blanchfield, a friend and collaborator of Green's, who took the phrase from theorist Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's book Touching Feeling, which draws upon Paul Ricoeur's work on Sigmund Freud, who based much of his early research on paranoia upon the memoirs of Daniel Paul Schreber, the famous lunatic (who, it must be noted, provided the inspiration for Green's most well-known work to date, titled Ärztliche Zimmergymnastik, which had its premiere installation at Tate Modern in 2008). The title, like all of the work in the exhibition, is the means to a site- and debate-specific exploration of intellectual, artistic and historical influence, all within the bounds of Le Corbusier's landmark Carpenter Center, from which Green takes formal, material and stupefacient inspiration. In conjunction with the exhibition, Green and collaborator Hana van der Kolk will lead students in a performance in late September, sponsored by Learning From Performers (Office for the Arts at Harvard) with support from the Peter Ivers Visiting Artist Fund.

Working with a cellular biologist from Harvard University, Michael Wang has created Differentiation Series, micrograph images of artificially produced stem cells. These images have been hand-tinted according to a system that matches a unique color to every cell type that can be potentially produced from these undifferentiated cells. At scheduled times, the cellular biologist and an art historian from the University offer distinct interpretations of the images.

Jesse Aron Green received his MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio from UCLA, and his BA from Harvard University. His recent exhibitions include solo shows at: CCA Zamek Ujazdowksi, Warsaw; Carroll and Sons Gallery, Boston; Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown; Halle14, Leipzig; and Tate Modern, London. Recent and upcoming group exhibitions include: The Eye of the Collector, MAMbo, Bologna; Dance/Draw, ICA, Boston; Move, Choreographing You, Hayward Gallery, London; Festival Pro Arte, St. Petersburg; and the 2010 Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He was a Henry Luce Scholar for 2008/09, a Trust for Mutual Understanding/Location One Fellow for 2009/10, the Arthur Levitt Fellow at Williams College for 2010/11, and a Peter Ivers Visiting Artist at Harvard University for 2012.

Michael Wang was born in Olney, MD and lives and works in New York City. He holds a Masters in Architecture from Princeton University, an MA from NYU, and a BA from Harvard. Wang has worked as an artworld events reporter, taught with the architect Peter Eisenman at Yale, and consulted for some of the world’s largest corporations. His works include speculative proposals for the World Economic Forum conference hall in Davos, Switzerland; Invasives, the controlled release of invasive species; and Carbon Copies, an exhibition linking the production of artworks to the release of greenhouse gases. Selected exhibitions include: Foxy Production, New York (2012); Primetime Gallery, Brooklyn (2010); Asia Song Society, New York (2008); and Rivington Arms, New York (2007). His critical writings have appeared in Artforum, Cabinet, the Architect's Newspaper, and Modern Painters.
