VIDEO: Lucy Dacus Releases New Video About "American Cognitive Dissonance"
06/25/2019 3:00am

Richmond artist Lucy Dacus, who headlines the final Friday Cheers this week, released a new song today titled Forever Half Mast Matador.She noted on her FB fan page that the song was about American cognitive dissonance and added Big ups to Jacob Blizard, Jake Finch, and our dude Collin Pastore for wildin out on pedal steel. I play the shitty drums at the end. Enjoy.Its a mid-tempo tune with some typically lovely singing by Dacus, while the lyrics are just mysterious enough to probably inspire many different interpretations. In the conflicted song, Dacus sings I didnt choose this town/I cant undo it now/I try to love the beast/no matter what it thinks of me. Thats before it gets to one of her catchiest choruses ever, even as she ponders the morality of average Americans. Dacus told NPR: I wrote it years ago as an answer to my own question about whether or not any American can be a good person since we are all passively benefitting from one of the most violent and destructive systems in the world. I dont so much believe in the dualistic idea of people either being good or bad anymore, but I still believe the sentiment.Check it out yourself. In other local music news, RVAs favorite scumdogs Gwar released a video of its own to announce its fall Use Your Collusion tour. It features a fist puppet and a talking Donald Trump head.

Waiting for Change
06/25/2019 12:00am

A Richmond artist plays with notions of space at home and the ICA. Before taking in Corin Hewitts compelling new exhibition, it helps to understand the notion of parafiction.The term has seen increased use as a means of describing an emergent genre of art that dabbles in the overlap of fact and fiction. With one foot in the real world and another in the made-up, the viewer is left to interpret whats real and whats not.Hewitt accomplishes this with an exhibition, Shadows Are to Shade, concurrently located in two places: his Fan home and studio the latter occupies the main floor of the early 20th century building and his family lives upstairs and the Institute for Contemporary Art. From the moment he and his wife bought the building in 2011 from painters Joan Gaustad and her late husband, Jerry Donato, Hewitt wanted to discover more about its history. Upon learning of its tenure as a bicycle shop, restaurant and auto parts store, not to mention 26 residential tenants since it was built in 1915, Hewitt set out to understand his relationship to the houses history.He accomplished that by digging two parallel trenches 10-by-3 feet and 4 feet deep in his studio floor that make for a kind of binocular effect. His excavations uncovered two distinct layers of red and tan soil, along with pottery shards, marble and slate flooring, pieces of coal, oyster shells, coins, brick pieces and a pre-existing foundation wall.Researching the site, Hewitt learned that the final landowner before his house had been built was the Ford family, whod had a small sustenance farm on the site since before the Civil War. Fords son William had taken over after deserting the war, working as an excavator, an ice dealer, a contractor and a teamster hauling red clay from the James to the Fan to be used to underlay houses then being built. Immediately, Hewitt saw parallels. I became interested in his role as an excavator and contractor for buildings, he explains. In 1880, Ford was a 48-year-old excavator and Im 48 and thats exactly what I was doing.That similarity became the basis for a tale of two successive laborers on the same plot of land.While the dirt and objects he uncovered were pretty mundane, Hewitt began creating his parafiction by replicating objects such as oyster shells, bricks and stones using casting molds as well as 3-D printers. Its left to the viewer to decide which objects in the two identical trenches are real or fake. As a means of depicting his connection to Ford, Hewitt also created a series of coins with silhouettes of both mens profiles, the dates 1880 and 2019 and, on the back, images of their shared Fan building as it looked when each lived there, and scattered them about the trenches.Along with the viewer being able to move around the trenches for multiple viewing points, a slow-moving track light over each excavation adds to the effect by casting shadows that simulate sunrise and sunset on the objects below. The studio is open Saturday afternoons.At the institute itself, viewers feel as if they are the ones in the trench, with two domestic sets, one representing now and the other a previous time, arranged on scaffolding. As if in a dream, the architecture is scrambled and fragmented with objects viewable through myriad different openings as well as straight on.Casts of his familys knees some flesh colored, others a sickly post-mortem gray contain light sources that play off the mirrors on the gallerys sides. Scattered throughout, pairs of hands cast from Hewitts own, are seen rising out of Instapots, with two lighting sources constantly changing the effect for shadow play. The Instapots relate to the pressure of the soil and ground, Hewitt explains. Food is under tremendous pressure in the pots and they change. Its the same underground with different strata of materials.In the gallery, Hewitt also displays the process behind the coins he created using clay excavated from his trenches to craft them, as well as dinner plates.There are a lot of parts to the ICA exhibit, Hewitt readily admits. All the way in the back of the gallery is a live video feed from the sewage line in Hewitts home. Theres a sense of waiting for change, whether its rats or flies, Hewitt says. Theres a feeling of what will happen if I wait to see Chances are, theyll hear flushing, see rushing water and a whole lot more.Hewitt hopes that viewers will let their own associations come and be attentive to letting things happen. When people look at this exhibit, I dont necessarily want them to get it, he says. I want them to have a real experience, so not just interpretive. Im interested in how people pay attention to our spaces and I want them to feel something.When a viewer points out that the entire exhibition has the effect of being a mind fuck, Hewitt smiles broadly. Im totally fine with that. Corin Hewitt: Shadows Are to Shade through Sept. 1 at the Institute for Contemporary Art, 601 W. Broad St., and at 1 S. Granby St., icavcu.org.

What Remains
06/25/2019 12:00am

The paintings of the late Cindy Neuschwander ask what matters at the end of our lives Two globular black organic shapes fill the white ground of the picture plane. Slightly anthropomorphic, the vertical forms each sprout what appear to be a head, torso and limbs. Indeed, they are anthropomorphic, The Couple 2010, an oil, charcoal and wax on paper, is a self-portrait of the late Cindy Neuschwander and her husband, Jay Barrows. Since Neuschwanders death in 2012, Barrows has unearthed many personal notes from his wife tucked away in her studio. He discovered this altered painting after her death. It was downstairs in her studio in Nellysford, Virginia and the last day we were there, which was Thanksgiving of 2012, she went down there by herself, explains Barrows. What she did with that piece was she added the yellow wings. It was all black. I didnt see it until I came back. That was her last time in the studio.Neuschwander died almost two weeks later on Dec. 4 after battling ovarian cancer for more than five years.Until this spring The Couple hung in Barrows house. After some urging, he decided to part with it and the painting is prominently featured, alongside another 15 works chosen from his private collection, in A Measure of Life at Reynolds Gallery, on view through Aug. 23. A sister exhibition of Neuschwanders early altered photographs opens July 5 at 1708 Gallery. Proceeds from the Reynolds show will go towards Neuschwanders grandchildrens college funds and sales from the 1708 exhibition will be donated to the Cindy Neuschwander Scholarship Fund, which awards money to local high-school seniors pursuing art degrees. To date, 63 students have received partial scholarships.Neuschwanders work is diverse. Some paintings, like Untitled 2006 or Shadowing the Red 2006, feature a bright nearly neon color palette of orange or green. Most, however, are some combination of white, black, and gray. Many have remarked how Neuschwander favored mark-making, sgraffito and painting with wax. There is urgency to her work and a searching akin to an archeologist who is scratching ardently in the dirt. Neuschwander didnt start painting until 1999, at the encouragement of Barrows, whom she married in 2002. She was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2004. It is difficult not to summon allusions between Neuschwanders work and examples from Western art, such as Robert Motherwells black-and-white abstractions, Eva Hesses latex forms, Donald Judds stacked boxes or Cy Twomblys scribbled canvases. Barrows points out that Davi Det Hompson, a Fluxus artist who lived in Richmond, was a direct influence on Neuschwander after she saw two exhibitions of Hompsons work in 1999. In one sense, this diversity suggests experimentation: Trying on a style, pushing it to a limit and then shelving it for another. Yet there is a persistency here, expressed by the prolific output and the fact that she worked up until her death, leaving one to wonder what wouldve come next. If The Couple is a capstone of the exhibition, then its powerful antithesis is on the opposite wall, three small paintings hung together in the second room: Suture 2004, Untitled 2004, and Banded 2003. Suture, a canvas with a vertical puncture wound down its center that has been repaired by another piece of canvas affixed by a row of stitches on either side, is the most appealing. While the representational The Couple is in black, white, and yellow, the other three paintings are abstractions made in the color of beeswax, which resembles human flesh. Moreover The Couple is assertive and hopeful with its golden wings while the other three are quiet, intimate, and somber. The two forms in the The Couple gain strength from companionship while the beeswax-colored paintings feel vulnerable, exposed, and damaged. But like the suture of the canvas, each is resiliently whole, damaged but not defeated. There is a thread of hope that undergirds each. In our culture that favors the present and eternally young while cordoning off death, dying or the infirmed to the insulated spaces of hospitals and nursing homes, Neuschwanders paintings are a welcome reminder of the only certainty in life. The title of the exhibition, A Measure of Life, prefaced by the indefinite article suggests that these paintings produced from 2003 to 2010 are but one way of measuring Neuschwanders very full life. It invites visitors to ask the self-reflexive question: How do I measure my own life What remains, what matters, at the end of my life Cindy Neuschwander, A Measure of Life, is on view at Reynolds Gallery and an exhibition of Neuschwanders photographs opens July 5 at 1708 Gallery.
