Last week to see Expired Attachment, on view until August 5th, 2018 1-6pm #PaulHeyer , #GretchenBender , #WillardKlein
In 1986 artist David Robbins produced ‘Talent’, an artwork comprised of eighteen black-and-white headshot photos. He invited a group of artist friends associated with Gallery Nature Morte and Metro Pictures to have their portraits taken on W46th Street by James Kriegsmann, a professional studio photographer. ** included here are the outtakes of Cindy Sherman, the couple Gretchen Bender & Robert Longo, and Steven Parrino. #portraits #outtakes #bwphotography #talent #davidrobbins #alanbelcher #balanelcher #cindysherman #gretchenbender #robertlongo #stevenparrino #jameskriegsmann #broadway #stagephotography #stagedeli 🖤gretchen 🖤parrino

Fuck. Me. UP. “Total Recall” @artinstitutechi. A complete assault on the senses. . . . . . . . #theartinstitute #chicago #gretchenbender #totalrecall #nycartist #mixedmedia #newmedia #brooklynartist
I was totally blown away by #gretchenbender ’s #video #installation #TotalRecall currently showing at @artinstitutechi and I just realized that I actually also saw her #AmericanFlag at @icaboston earlier in the #Art In the Age of the #Internet exhibition. Her vision and prediction on new technologies and the Internet might be way ahead of time back then, yet they are totally fitting nowadays. As I’m reading more about the artist, I wished I’d known more about her and her works. She died too early.
Happy birthday @gregfreeland This exhibit is all for you. "Total Recall" by Gretchen Bender, circa 1987 #artinstituteofchicago #gretchenbender

Suite de notre focus sur « Art & Entertainment », exposition qui ferme ses portes ce dimanche. Cette revisitation des années 80 à partir des écrits de David Robbins présente notamment une œuvre célèbre de Philippe Parreno, tirée de la série cultissime « Twin Peaks » de David Lynch. #mamco #mamcogeneve #mamcogeneva #art #entertainment #davidrobbins @fleury49000 #sylviefleury #allanmccollum #elainesturtevant #sturtevant #alainjaquet #ifp #jenniferbolande #philippeparreno #generalidea #johnmiller #markleckey #richardprince #josephbeuys #rodneygraham #johnwaters #mikekelley #adammcewen #gretchenbender #cindysherman #jeffkoons #robertheinecken #michaelsmith #davidlynch #twinpeaks
Des pancartes, des flèches, des panneaux, des posters: l'exposition «Art & Entertainment» recèle d'objets a priori insolites dans un musée. Partant des écrits du théoricien David Robbins, le comissaire Paul Bernard vous explique leur signification (video 1/2). L'exposition est encore visible jusqu'à ce dimanche 29 avril! #mamco #mamcogeneve #mamcogeneva #art #entertainment #davidrobbins @fleury49000 #sylviefleury #allanmccollum #elainesturtevant #sturtevant #alainjaquet #ifp #jenniferbolande #philippeparreno #generalidea #johnmiller #markleckey #richardprince #josephbeuys #rodneygraham #johnwaters #mikekelley #adammcewen #gretchenbender #cindysherman #jeffkoons #robertheinecken #michaelsmith
“I like that it takes this curious nationalistic symbol and destabilizes it,” Gretchen Bender. ender’s American Flag employs a digital image of a flag taken from the broadcast of a sporting event on a major television network. Bender isolates the image of the American flag (one of the most widely circulated images in American culture) as it dissolves—in video editing, a dissolve is a gradual transition from one image to another—printing the image of the digitally-rendered, fragmenting flag on fabric. #ICAinternet . . . . . #ICAboston #GretchenBender #aiaiboston #americanflag #america #contemporaryart #boston #bosarts #digital #image #art #tech #internet #broadcast #sports #videoediting #artdaily #itweetmuseums #igboston #exploreboston #artlover #patriotism Gretchen Bender, “American Flag,” c. 1989.

This week, we bring you Gretchen Bender, a female artist who blurred the line between commercial culture and art. Her most famous works were multichannel choreographies of recycled television imagery, which she called “electronic theater.” Her career started after she joined a protest on the steps of the Smithsonian in the '80s which drew attention to the lack of women artists in museums. Bender died in 2004, but her work increasingly gains attention. • Swipe to see Bender’s work on display at the @hirshhorn ’s #BrandNew80s exhibit in Washington, D.C. The exhibit will be up until May 13. Tap the link in bio to find out more. (photos by Cathy Carver; Courtesy the Estate of Gretchen Bender and OSMOS)

If you ask a kid to take your picture, in this case in front of art, they feel privileged rather than burdened. #namjunepaik #television #floridaavegrill #gretchenbender #basementapartment

The influence of colors, ads and some cool ladies such as Gretchen Bender featured at the @hirshhorn right now. Thankful for the rule breakers, noise makers and all that this decade left us with. 🎟 #BrandNew80s

New glory > Gretchen Bender’s “American Flag” @icaboston re-imagines one of the most recognizable symbols of our country for the digital age. Surprisingly, while the aesthetic is of the moment, this piece was actually made 29 years ago in 1989. #ICABoston #ICAinternet #AIAIBoston #GretchenBender #art #contemporaryart #fabricart

The Hirshhorn’s ‘Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s’ opens this evening in Washington, DC. The exhibition purports to explore ‘the pivotal moments in the 1980s when artwork became a commodity and the artist a brand.’ The exhibition is notable for several restorations of works that have not been seen since the ‘80s, including Gretchen Bender’s landmark video installation, ‘Dumping Core’ (1987) and Kryzsztof Wodiczko’s ‘Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC’ (1988). Pictured here: 1. Gretchen Bender, ‘Untitled (People with AIDS)’ (1986) and Donald Moffett’s ‘He Kills Me’ (1987) 2. Barbara Bloom, ‘Planned Abandon’ (1981/2018) 3. Barbara Kruger, ‘Untitled (I shop therefore I am)’ (1987) 4. John Dogg, aka Richard Prince, ‘John, Not Johnny’ (1987) 5. Martha Rosler, ‘Martha Rosler Reads “Vogue”’ (1982) 6.
