October 13, 2012 – January 20, 2013

The Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UC Santa Barbara is pleased to bring The Stumbling Present: Ruins in Contemporary Art. The exhibition features an international roster of artists who use the imagery of neglected or willfully destroyed places and objects to address socio-political concerns and the failure of utopian ideals. For many of these artists, ruins register as symbols of loss but also as sites of possibility upon which they can impose their own potent narratives. The included films, paintings, photographs, and sculptures are part of the long trajectory of ruins in art as signifiers of transience but they also reveal pressing concerns affecting contemporary artists and the state of our world today. Participating artists: Lara Almarcegui, Carlos Bunga, Nigel Cooke, Adam Cvijanovic, Carlos Garaicoa, Simryn Gill, Valerie Hegarty, Kristen Morgin, Melanie Smith, and Rob Voerman.

Rob Voerman at ISCP

Rob VoermanDate: February 16, 2012

Source: Times Newsweekly, by Sam Goodman

News Item: A Brooklyn Warehouse for Aspiring Artists

Quote: Rob Voerman’s studio is the most cluttered of the three, and for good reason. Large pieces of wood litter the room, in preparation for a large sculpture he intends to display at a future show at The Armory Show in Chelsea in March.The structures, he explained, are large enough for people to step inside them, and the addition of pieces of colored glass create “another way of looking at the world.”
