REPURPOSED, REFRAMED, REIMAGINED— Groundbreaking 20th Century Artists illuminate the overlooked subject of tools of with pun, wit and wonder.

The International Museum of Art & Science is pleased to announce ReTooled: Highlights from the Hechinger Collection, an engaging and thought-provoking look at the unexpected subject of tools, through more than 40 inspiring paintings, sculptures, works on paper and photographs. Curated by Jared Packard-Winkler and organized for tour by International Arts & Artists, Washington D.C., ReTooled is on view at the IMAS from March 10 through July 1, 2018.

ReTooled celebrates the prevalence of tools in our lives with art that magically transforms utilitarian objects into fanciful works that speak of beauty, insight, and wit. Providing a dynamic entry point into the rich themes, materials and processes of 20th century art, ReTooled profiles 28 visionary artists from the Hechinger Collection including major artists such as Arman, Richard Estes, Howard Finster, Red Grooms, Jacob Lawrence, Fernand Léger and H.C. Westermann; photographers Berenice Abbott and Walker Evans; as well as pop artists Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and James Rosenquist. The exhibition consists of four sections: Objects of Beauty; Material Illusions; Instruments of Satire; and Tools: An Extension of Self.

Objects of Beauty

Hechinger’s quest to amass a preeminent art collection unifying the theme of tools rested on a notion that everyday instruments could be objects of beauty. In portraying these objects with a tone of reverence, the artists separate object from function producing works that meditate on tools’ distilled purity of design. By photographing a mundane tool in Wrench (1955), Walker Evans encourages the viewer to appreciate the beauty of line and economy of form. In the photograph, Spinning Wrench (1958), Berenice Abbott contemplates the elegance of a wrench as it dances across the frame lulling the viewer with its hypnotic movement. Jim Dine’s series of ten works, Toolbox (1966) riff on the theme of beauty by placing screen print images of tools in austere yet dynamic compositions that assert Dine’s status as a leading pop artist. These artists underscore the overlooked beauty of objects that facilitate our everyday lives.

Material Illusions

In this section artists modify and distort everyday tools to question their functionality. By reimaging a tool in a material that renders it useless, the artist questions how we interact with that object. In Allan Adams’ sculpture, Lathe (1979), the artist subverts our initial recognition of a mechanized lathe by producing this sculptural homage in an unexpected medium: maple wood. Adams reminds the viewer that first impressions can be deceiving. A vignette of an oak-fashioned lawnmower in F.L. Wall’s Summer Tool (1983) takes on a cynical tone as the tool reduces each unique blade of grass to a uniform height— perhaps a commentary on how products of industrialization simultaneously unify and standardize. Each carefully fabricated work in this section contrasts their mass-produced counterparts that lie dusty in our garages. Transforming the tool into art also highlights how our increasingly clean, digital lives are detached from the calloused, tool-wielding hands that laid the foundation for modern society; making a hammer unusable by constructing it in glass, as in Hans Godo Frabel’s Hammer and Nails (1980), parallels a hammer’s irrelevance in a computer-driven era.

Instruments of Satire

While some work, artists play. The artists in this section repurpose, reframe, and redefine tools by injecting a dose of irreverent humor into an otherwise work-driven world. By tracing the way brushes whimsically dance across the canvas Arman’s Blue, Red, Brown (1988) reminds us that the fundamental purpose of tools—to execute action—can be fun. Claes Oldenburg playfully heroizes a mundane object in the portrait Three-way plug (1965) by imbuing an overlooked item with a larger-than-life status. Other artists juxtapose objects to create humorous dissonances. In Trash Can in the Grass-Calix Krater (1977), James Rosenquist audaciously decorates a simple trash can with ancient Greek imagery to elevate it to a Calix Krater—a vessel from antiquity. These works remind us of the joy and sense of play that defines creation.

Tools: An Extension of Self

Tools have the capacity to actualize dreams. They embody the can-do spirit that defines America and symbolize our unalterable quest to improve our quality of life. The artists in this section illustrate how tools are an extension of ourselves, both as individuals and as a society. In his work The Slob (1965), H.C. Westermann endows a hammer with personality by showing how a tool conveys the characteristics of its wielder. Jacob Lawrence and Fernand Léger astutely observe how tools shape identity by defining professions in Carpenters (1977) and Les Constructeurs, (1951). Howard Finster credits tools with advancing civilization by scrawling “tools came first and America was built second,” on a Stanley Thrift saw. Tools do the work that our fragile bodies cannot. Becoming surrogate limbs, tools compensate for our weaknesses and facilitating our greatest achievements. These artists are keenly aware of how tools represent human nature.

John Hechinger

John Hechinger’s father founded the Hechinger Hardware store in 1911, but it was John Hechinger along with his brother-in-law who grew the store into a renowned chain throughout the Mid- Atlantic region. Hechinger is often credited as one of the major figures in the transformation of the neighborhood hardware store to the “do it yourself” home improvement business. A fourth generation Washingtonian, community patron and activist, John Hechinger was appointed by President Lyndon Johnson to be the first chairman of the D.C. City Council. He used his position to advocate for civil rights and diverse neighborhoods. Hechinger’s donation of his collection to IA&A for the purpose of sharing it with a broader public is yet another invaluable legacy.

In the 1980s, John Hechinger’s booming chain of hardware stores led him to purchase a new company headquarters. He found the offices to be efficient, but sterile. The barren space sparked an initiative to beautify the headquarters which launched Hechinger’s acquisition of a tool-inspired collection of diverse 20th century art.

ReTooled is a dynamic exhibition with a compelling mission: to celebrate an overlooked subject by engaging audiences with wildly creative and thought provoking works that highlight formative trends of 20th century art.

Currently scheduled tour dates for ReTooled include: Art Museum of South Texas, Corpus Christi TX (January 24, 2019 – April 28, 2019). For an Updated tour schedule, please visit http://www.artsandartists.org/exhibitions-retooled.php

The IMAS Presents Migrations by Los Angeles Artist, Cynthia Minet

The International Museum of Art and Science (IMAS) in McAllen, Texas is pleased to announce Migrations, a solo exhibit by Los Angeles artist Cynthia Minet, from April 14 to September 2, 2018.

Migrations takes the borderland regions of the Rio Grande Valley as its point of departure and specifically uses the Roseate Spoonbill, a large bird native to the Southeast coastal region as an artistic surrogate for human experiences. Minet is well known for the creation of large-scale sculptures of animals constructed from repurposed plastics—detergent bottles, water containers, found toys, etc. that are then illuminated from within by glowing LED lights. She creates magnificent aesthetic objects that metaphorically call attention to our dependency on electricity and petrochemicals. Her conceptually and politically astute artworks draw the audience in, and then prompt them to thoughtfully consider and question contemporary society and lifestyle.

In Migrations, Minet will exhibit five suspended sculptures and one floor piece in addition to select wall-mounted drawings. Like most of her installations, this work is site-responsive, and uses recycled plastic debris from Los Angeles in addition to found materials gathered from the borderlands region of the Rio Grande Valley. The center piece of the installation is a graceful representation of the Roseate Spoonbill in various stages of flight. These sculptural birds are accompanied by light sequencing and motion activated sound that consists of wing beats, running water, bird calls, and footsteps through grass that create a sense of mystery and movement in the darkened space. In addition, embedded into these sculptures are objects discarded by migrants in the areas along the river or by McAllen’s border fence. Minet's visually accessible, meaningful and richly layered works call attention to the fact that plastic will erode but never disappear, that habitats and species will be lost to climate change and pollution and never return, and that people will risk everything to escape intolerable situations only to be denied entry into a new land.

Cynthia Minet's artworks have been exhibited both in the USA and internationally. Her recent solo exhibitions include: Avian, Vita Art Center at the Bell Arts Factory, Ventura (2016); Beast of Burden, USC Fisher Museum of Art, University of Southern California (2015); Packing Caravan, the Los Angeles International Airport, (2013), Unsustainable Creatures, UC Riverside's Culver Center for the Arts (2012), as well as installations at the Anchorage Museum, AK (2014), the Huntington Beach Art Center, and the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History. International group exhibitions include museum and gallery shows since 2000. Minet is professor of studio art at Moorpark College, Moorpark, CA.

This exhibit is included in the cost of General Admission, and is free for IMAS Members. Cynthia Minet will give a talk on her exhibit on Saturday, April 14 starting at 3:00 p.m. with a reception to follow until 5:00 p.m.

Beyond the Photograph: Nolan Preece’s Chemigram and Cliché-verre Prints

The International Museum of Art and Science (IMAS) in McAllen, Texas is pleased to announce the opening of Chemigrams, a solo exhibition by artist Nolan Preece.  These semi-abstract and peculiar artworks provide a unique visual background for social and environmental content.  Chemigrams is on view at IMAS from April 21 through July 8, 2018.

Nolan Preece has a spent a lifetime balancing the elusive and primitive techniques of early photography with new, and technologically advanced and inventive photo-based processes.  In the late 1970s and early 1980s, his fondness for experimental photography led him to develop a photographic abstraction process that uses chemical masking and staining techniques to create an image on silver based photographic paper.  Preece called his resulting prints “chemograms,” but after recently engaging with a group of artists using similar processes, Preece has renamed his prints “chemigrams.”  The chemigrams are produced without the use of a camera; however, fragments of representational photographic imagery are at times integrated with the various chemical effects.  As chemical abstractions that suggest a natural world gone awry, Preece's art plays an important role in the pronounced and politicized arguments that surround climate change.

The process of making a chemigram involves combining chemicals to form imagery on silver halide photographic papers.  Preece experiments with everyday materials such as acrylic floor wax and common photographic chemical solutions to produce his unique images, which remind us that nature can be viewed as one self-sustaining organism, vulnerable to the touch of mankind’s ‘progressive’ intrusions.  Belgian photographer Pierre Cordier, who is widely respected as the founder of the chemigram in the 1950’s, recently referred to Preece as “without a doubt, one of the outstanding practitioners of the chemigram” – a testament to his skills and dedication to the form.

Also represented in this exhibition is a process known as cliché-verre (French for “glass negative”).  Preece first experimented with applying chemical solvents on smoke-on-glass plates in 1979.  When treated as a negative, the glass plate can be placed in an enlarger and printed on photographic paper as if it were a film negative. Currently, Preece has moved on from the photo enlarger employing a digital scanner to create more expansive images that in turn, open up the field of view to better understanding the fleeting and fluid ‘nature’ of the media.

This exhibition is included in the cost of General Admission and is free for IMAS Members.

Every first Friday of the months between September thru May, the city of McAllen comes alive with the vibrant, passionate culture of its residents in an event known as the “Art Walk.” McAllen’s Art Walk is a free, self-guided tour through the art studios and galleries located in the city’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods. The goal of Art Walk is to promote the awareness and appreciation of fine art and McAllen’s creative talent. 

The McAllen Creative Incubator is proud of our local artists, and always looks forward to participating in Art Walk. Visitors are welcome to visit the Incubator tenants and enjoy the exhibitions on display. This is a free, family friendly event, so come out and enjoy the Arts in McAllen!
