Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art opens Summer Exhibitions 2017
In Mauro Giaconi’s site-specific installation cae a plomo (desde el fondo del tiempo) / falls to lead (from the depths of time), his desire to create and destruct confront each other in the same artistic act.

BOULDER, COLO.- Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art announces three related exhibitions as part of the summer 2017 exhibition cycle: Tram Pam Pam by artist Dasha Shishkin in the West Gallery; Walk the Distance and Slow Down, selections from the collection of JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey in the East Gallery; and cae a plomo (desde el fondo del tiempo) / falls to lead (from the depths of time) by artist Mauro Giaconi in the Union Works Gallery. The exhibitions are on display June 9–September 10, 2017.

Moscow-born artist Dasha Shishkin’s solo exhibition, Tram Pam Pam, is a whimsical leap into a world between painting and drawing where the delights and follies of human nature are performed in vivid color and imagination. The exhibition presents a site-specific arrangement of past works and new creations within one large installation. Born to a puppeteer father and a mother who directed folk theater in Russia, Shishkin transfers a carnivalesque spirit inspired from her childhood into her works that often incorporate unconventional materials such as ripped canvas or painters tape with more traditional artistic techniques. The title, Tram Pam Pam, is the phonetic transcription of the Russian phrase TPAM ПAM ПAM, which translates as “ta-da” and signifies a playful triumph in absurdity that Shishkin explores throughout her exhibition.

In Mauro Giaconi’s site-specific installation cae a plomo (desde el fondo del tiempo) / falls to lead (from the depths of time), his desire to create and destruct confront each other in the same artistic act. The fragments of plaster were taken from a site-specific wall drawing created at Museo Universitario Del Chopo in Mexico City in 2016. The deconstructed wall, transported and reassembled from Mexico to the United States symbolically bridges the countries—a potent poetic gesture in our current political climate. “Immersed in the evidence of the laborious and aggressive process of his work, individual destination is lost to the collective, and revelation and erasure are discovered to be the workings of one unified force, completing a cycle and possibly propelling a revolution,” said BMoCA Curator Mardee Goff.

Drawn from the collection of JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey, Walk the Distance and Slow Down presents a small glimpse into a much larger collection solely dedicated to the exploration of works on paper. “It is through the thoughtful and thorough vision of the collector that we are brought to genuinely question what constitutes a drawing and asked to reconsider the potential of paper as a support for ideas and creativity,” said Goff. The exhibition presents contemporary works on paper by 29 international artists whose work highlights the ever-evolving potential of contemporary drawing through a variety of techniques, forms, and approaches that move beyond the perceived limits of paper as an artistic substrate and medium. Artist in this exhibition include: Isabel Albrecht, Alice Attie, Jill Baroff, Omar Barquet, Todd Bura, Jonathan Callan, Johanna Calle, Raffaella Chiara, Marcus Civin, Martí Cormand, Jamal Cyrus, Annabel Daou, Mauro Giaconi, Sergio Gutiérrez, Jacob El Hanani, Susan Hefuna, Christine Hiebert, Kim Jones, Károly Keserü, Jose Luis Landet, Marco Maggi, Ruben Ochoa, Bernardo Ortiz, Sebastian Rug, Simon Schubert, Diana de Solares, Allyson Strafella, Julianne Swartz, and Lynne Woods Turner.
