<![CDATA[Tim Tate to be Included in GLASSTRESS During Venice Biennale!]]> Found: opportunity
Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making.

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making. 
GLASSTRESS 2019 – PARTICIPATING ARTISTS
GLASSTRESS runs from May 9 to November 24, 2019

<![CDATA[Tim Tate to be Included in GLASSTRESS During Venice Biennale!]]> Found: opportunity
Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making.

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making. 
GLASSTRESS 2019 – PARTICIPATING ARTISTS
GLASSTRESS runs from May 9 to November 24, 2019

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

<![CDATA[Tim Tate to be Included in GLASSTRESS During Venice Biennale!]]> Found: opportunity
Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making.

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

<![CDATA[Tim Tate to be Included in GLASSTRESS During Venice Biennale!]]> Found: opportunity
Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making.

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making.

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass.

<![CDATA[Tim Tate to be Included in GLASSTRESS During Venice Biennale!]]> Found: opportunity
Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making.

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.

Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making. 
GLASSTRESS 2019 – PARTICIPATING ARTISTS

<![CDATA[Tim Tate to be Included in GLASSTRESS During Venice Biennale!]]> Found: opportunity
Huge news for DMV area uberartist Tim Tate!

He reports:
Such good news to report! I will be one of the few Americans representing the USA in the upcoming Glasstress show during the Venice Biennale. The show has amazing artists, such as Ai Wei Wei, Tony Oursler, Karen Lamonte and Dustin Yellin and is being curated by Vic Muniz and Koen Vanmechelen. This represents a huge step forward in my career. You can read all about it below. 
I want to be your ambassador to the United States! Its so expensive to get there though! If you want to help me out, I put together an Indiegogo campaign to raise monies. Even just sharing this link would do me a huge favor! I am honestly just happy to report that I will be one of those artists! Thank you all for supporting me over the years! I appreciate every one of you!
Here is my iniegogo link... click here.
This a monster of a huge step for one of the DMV's most visible and hardest working artists! Here's the news release from GLASSTRESS:
Returning for the 58th Biennale di Venezia, the sixth edition of GLASSTRESS brings together a new line-up of leading contemporary artists from Europe, the United States, Latin America, India, and China in an ambitious exhibition exploring the endless creative possibilities of glass.
Tim Tate; “The Endless Cycle”; 36″ x 36″ x 4″Glass, Aluminum, Poly-Vitro, electronics
GLASSTRESS is a project by Adriano Berengo dedicated to supporting his mission of marrying contemporary art and glass. Since its debut in 2009 as a collateral event of the Venice Biennale, GLASSTRESS has revived the traditional craft of Murano glassblowing by forging new alliances with internationally renowned artists and designers and has since become an unparalleled platform showcasing ground-breaking new works in glass.
To celebrate 10 years of GLASSTRESS and 30 years of , the exhibition goes back to its historical roots on the island of Murano. An old abandoned glass furnace is now an evocative exhibition space for striking new works and installations by returning artists Ai WeiweiTony Cragg and Thomas Schütte as well as first time participants Prune NourryJosé ParláTim Tate and Xavier Veilhan, amongst others.
 For this section, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has invited all artists to explore ‘how glass redefines our perception of space’. In another section of the exhibition, curated by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen, highlights from the past ten years will also go on display, including Mutter (2016/17) by Erwin Wurm, Laura’s Hands (2011) by Jaume Plensa and A Different Self (2014) by Mat Collishaw. Referring to the making of glass works, Vanmechelen says: ‘the world of the unknown and unseen becomes visible and tangible through beautiful accidents in time.’
With little or no prior experience working with glass, these artists have embraced the challenge of creating extraordinary works in this very delicate medium in collaboration with Muranese artisans. The output of this unusual encounter defies the stereotypes associated with this ancient craft, ultimately pushing the boundaries of both contemporary art and glass. This year’s edition of GLASSTRESS will also provide visitors with the opportunity to watch Murano glass masters at work at the adjacent glassblowing studio and learn more about Fondazione Berengo’s preservation efforts of this centuries-old artistry of Venetian glass-making.

<![CDATA[Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi at Hemphill]]> Found: awarded, award
One of my fave DMV area artists is having a solo at Hemphill:
HEMPHILL is pleased to announce the exhibition, HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies, opening on Saturday, May 11, 2019 with a reception from 6-8pm. The exhibition will remain on view through June 29, 2019.
Moving to an aerial view, observing from a distance, there may be no such thing as a cultural war. There may only be a process, a moment in an ever-evolving world of cultural forces. Although this viewpoint does not champion good or evil, it does acknowledge movement and outcome. The paintings of Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi arise from cultures often portrayed at war. Each culture measures itself by a different clock. Each respective clock sometimes runs faster than the other, then slower, sometimes backward and then again forward. The clocks rarely synchronize, until the conflicts are spent and the two clocks merge. Ilchi’s work takes us to an aerial viewpoint where we see traditional Persian imagery merging with modernist American painting techniques. The content is not in conflict, but there is sense of broken parts coming together and things from a past appearing in a present. Contrary to our times, where a speeding flow of expedient information engulfs everything, Ilchi asks us to step back, slow down, take the aerial view. From this vantage point we see intricately executed tazhib patterns, sometimes floating over and at other times captured within scenes of organic chaos. Chaos created by the layering of translucencies, controlled pours and the topographical accumulations of paint. It is as though we are witnessing the reactions of chemical components. It takes time to comprehend the dazzling luminosities of her paintings, to see the merging of two cultures. Yet Ilchi’s work is not of an ideal state, there is a sense of trouble in her pictures, an apprehension of beauty, and a pining wishful-ness for the outcomes we are moving towards.
Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran and currently lives and works in the Washington DC area. Ilchi received a BFA with honors from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006 and an MFA in Studio Art from the American University in 2011. She has been awarded residencies at the Ucross Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, The Jentel Foundation, and the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. She has exhibited in New York, Switzerland, Washington DC and Winston- Salem, NC and her work is included in several private and public collections. HEDIEH JAVANSHIR ILCHI: I surrender to you, ashen lands and blue skies is the artist’s second exhibition at Hemphill Fine Arts.
