Soft Opening: DIRTY WORK DIRT DOGS

9/4

Opening: DIRTY WORK DIRT DOGS

Jimmy Joe Roche and Johnston Foster

September 3 – 26, 2015

RARE Gallery, New York and Gallery5 are pleased to present “DIRTY WORK DIRT DOGS,” the first-ever exhibition pairing playful contemporary artists, Jimmy Joe Roche and Johnston Foster. This innovative exhibit launches the fall art season at Gallery5, with a preview on Thursday, September 3, at 6pm, followed by a lively First Friday opening from 6pm to 12am on Friday, September 4.  The show continues until September 26.

Both artists work well outside the frame and explore the raw edges of our consumer culture, but employing quite divergent methods. This exhibition will explore each artist’s unique engagement with the tools of his trade while questioning traditional notions of art-making –  Roche using visceral, digitally manipulated video productions, and Foster utilizing scavenged everyday objects. The unlikely pairing guide viewers into new realms of consciousness by asking them to think about the world they live in new and different ways.

Basment Bleeds-2  

Jimmy Joe Roche, Basement Bleeds, 2009, RT: 1’ 16 (video still)

Roche originally came to national prominence in his role as co-founder of the Baltimore DIY arts collective, Wham City, through his collaborations with electronic-techno musician Dan Deacon, and as a result of posting his provocative videos on YouTube. Roche’s videos on exhibit at Gallery5 continue his multi-faceted engagement with cultural and aesthetic motifs that find their roots in Surrealism, Op art, performance, cinema, meditation, music, and the digital realm. He takes on outlandish characters in vivid costumes and crazed contortions to explore the subversive within our culture. By infusing schizoid, raw, and chaotic qualities in his works, Roche has created conceptual talismans of the collective American unconscious.

ARMDETAILsmall

Johnston Foster, Cul-de-sac, 2015, Mixed media found materials, 36” x 55.5” x 13.5”

Foster brings a long-lost sense of hand-craftedness to his sculptures, which are created out of discarded materials like plywood, vinyl flooring, baby pools, plastic trash cans, vacuum hoses, plastic table cloths, vinyl, racket balls, marbles, and screws. He finds this detritus strewn across highway medians, tossed into dumpsters, and abandoned in alleys, collects and archives it, and fashions it into hybrid creatures of vivid color and breadth of expression. His work is both an absorbing exploration of the life cycle of consumer goods and a compelling demonstration of deft art-making.

Jimmy Joe Roche is an interdisciplinary artist whose work encompasses video, sculpture, and performance. Screenings of his work have taken place at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, Boston Institute of Contemporary Art, J. Paul Getty Museum, Rojo@Nova, and the Museum of the Moving Image. Roche has had five solo exhibitions in New York, Texas, and Colorado. His artwork is in the permanent collection at the Baltimore Museum of Art and 21c Museum. He has created commissioned works for Adult Swim, Dazed and Confused Magazine, Incubate Arts Festival, and Harvestworks. Numerous publications have featured his works, including The New Museum’s “Younger Than Jesus” Artist Directory. He is faculty at the Johns Hopkins University Film and Media Department, where he teaches Introduction and Intermediate Digital Film Production.  Roche also teaches Moving Image 1 and Experimental Film at the Maryland Institute College of Art Film and Video Department.  He is represented by RARE Gallery in New York City and Erin Cluley Gallery in Dallas, TX. He received his BFA, Film Conservatory, at S.U.N.Y. Purchase College, Purchase, NY, and his MFA at Mt. Royal School of Art, Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD.

Johnston Foster’s sculptures have been collected by 21C Museum, Louisville, Kentucky; the Chaney Family Collection, Houston, Texas; Jean Pigozzi, Geneva, Switzerland; the Rubell Family Collections, Miami, Florida; Jim Martin, Washington, DC; Howard Tullman, Chicago & New York; and Glenn Close & David Shaw, New York & Maine. Foster has participated in numerous exhibitions at various institutions, including PS1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA PS1), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Brigham Young University Museum of Art, University Galleries at Illinois State University, Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, The Torrance Art Museum, Kidspace/MASS MoCA, Randolph Macon College, Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville. This past April, a documentary on the artist filmed by Red Bull premiered on redbull.tv. Foster received his BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University and his MFA from Hunter College.  He is represented by RARE Gallery, New York.
