United Contemporary is excited to present Tracking North, an exhibition of plein air and studio landscape paintings by Chuck Beamish, co-curated by Stefan Berg and Burke Paterson.
Lorenza Böttner: Requiem for the Norm is the first North American presentation of the work of Chilean/German artist Lorenza Böttner. Lorenza Böttner created over 200 individual works, painting with her feet and mouth and using dance, photography, street performance, drawing, and installation to celebrate the complexity of embodiment and gender expression.
Composed and tuned, the exhibition manifests as one sonic experience from three sound installations [Diagonale (1988), Waiting Room (2000), Tap (1969-1972)] one screening (Solar Breath (2002), two recordings (Falling Starts, W in the D, 1975) and a piano for Snow’s performance – all sharing the same acoustic space.

By exploring ideas of healing from trauma, and equivocating the Romantic sublime with contemporary mental health issues of self-awareness and empowerment, Laura aims to capture in images the disquiet she experienced while learning to reconnect mind and body, and find agency using the wilderness as a conduit.
In this body of work, Dadson employs the act of painting to consider the various markings humans leave upon the environment. Notions of borders and (re)framing emerge in his work as he uses the edges of the canvas, literal fences, and empty spaces to suggest an infinite expansion beyond the painted gestures that often spill over and extend those very boundaries.
