Mierle Laderman Ukeles: Maintenance Art Works

Artforum featured Mierle Laderman Ukeles' Maintenance Art Works at Australia's Institute of Modern Art.

Her solo exhibit, a survey of her early works, takes place October 11 – November 30, 2014.
Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia
Ground level, Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts,
420 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia

Although Ukeles took a seminal position in early conceptual and feminist art, and is represented in almost every anthology of 1960s and 1970s artists, her work has not yet been explored for its wider significance. The exhibition presents major works spanning a decade of production and is based on a show at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts gallery in New York 1998. This "tikkun olam project" is the first solo exhibition of Ukeles's practice in Australia. Read here the Artforum review of the exhibition

Her other current exhibits:

The City Lost & Found: Capturing New York, Chicago, L.A., 1960-1980 
October 25, 2014 – January 11, 2015
Art Institute of Chicago
111 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL

"Blurring traditional boundaries between artists, activists, planners, and journalists, The City Lost and Found offers an unprecedented opportunity to experience the deep interconnections between art practices and the political, social, and geographic realities of American cities in the 1960s and 1970s."

Work It Out 

October 24 – December 7, 2014
Momenta Art
56 Bogart Street, Brooklyn, NY

Momenta Art is pleased to present WORK IT OUT, a group exhibition that investigates the links between labor, actualization and transformation from multiple perspectives. As Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Manifesto was intended as a rejection of “progress” as a principle of capitalism, the Enlightenment idea of “progress” has long become objectionable in the leftist intellectual landscape. Nevertheless, the works in this exhibition resonate with, contradict, and deviate from Koj√®ve’s interpretation of dialectic and “progress”. Exhibit info here.

McCagg Gallery, Diana Center, Barnard College
