Charlotte Schulz: An Insufficiency in Our Screens
Charlotte Schulz, The maximum of all possible hate is realized in the eternal moment, and we cleave to our screens as it unfolds in that disquieting way (an incompossible) (detail), 2005.

RIDGEFIELD, CT.-The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum announced that 2003 Radius artist Charlotte Schulz will return to the Museum for her first solo museum exhibition–An Insufficiency in Our Screens. The exhibition is curated by Thomas Trummer, the inaugural recipient of The Aldrich's Hall Curatorial Fellowship, and will remain on view through May 26, 2008.

Schulz has enjoyed a five-year relationship with The Aldrich that began during her participation in Radius: Emerging Artists from Connecticut and Southeastern New York–an exhibition and professional development program designed to foster networking opportunities among talented and dedicated artists throughout the region and to provide practical guidance for artists entering the art marketplace.

Schulz notes, ”The Radius exhibition was significant in that it introduced my drawings to a larger audience at a time when I was relatively new to New York. But, more importantly, my work was brought to the attention of The Aldrich curatorial team. At the time, I felt their interest and support, and this furthered my confidence in the images that I was making. They continued to follow my work, and eventually this led to my being invited for a solo exhibition.”

This exhibition will feature a collection of two- and three-dimensional charcoal drawings that invite the viewer to explore strange composite architectural spaces in which dreams blend with memory and reality. Fragments of buildings are tethered together, and interior unfolds into exterior and back again. The spaces she renders appear to be unpopulated, allowing the viewer to easily step in as protagonist.

The selection of work navigates big ideas, including the question of why specific events happen as they do, when the potential for any number of possible outcomes exists in the universe.?ݠThe phrase ”an insufficiency in our screens” introduces each title in this series of drawings, as Schulz explores an interest in both metaphysical and physical "screens," and how they filter experience and mediate information in our everyday lives.

Charlotte Schulz was born in Massillon, Ohio, and studied art as an undergraduate at Kent State University. She attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in the summer of 1992, before graduating from the University of South Florida with a Master of Fine Arts degree.?ݓchulz is the recipient of individual artist fellowships from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, 2005-2006; Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, NJ, 2003; the New York Foundation for the Arts, 2002; the State of Florida, 1996; and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, 1992. Notable group exhibitions include underCURRENT/overview, Tampa Museum of Art, FL; Featuring Florida, The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, FL; Timeless/Timeliness, Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art; ARCHI+TEXTURE, Brooklyn Fire Proof, NY; Flow: Navigating the SuperParadigm, Bulldog Studios, Beacon, NY. Recent solo exhibitions include Object Lesson, ParaSite Art Space, Beacon, NY; and Inside the Monad, Azarian-McCullough Art Gallery, St. Thomas Aquinas College, Sparkill, NY.

The Aldrich is one of the few non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States. Founded on Ridgefield's historic Main Street in 1964, the Museum enjoys the curatorial independence of an alternative space while maintaining the registrarial and art-handling standards of a national institution. Exhibitions feature work by emerging and mid-career artists, and education programs inform adults and children about the importance of connecting to our world through contemporary art.
