One Day at a Time: Manny Farber and Termite Art 

October 14, 2018 - March 11, 2019

Curated by Helen Molesworth

One Day at a Time: Manny Farber and Termite Art features approximately thirty artists and more than 100 works of painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, and sound dating from the 1950s to the present. The exhibition is conceived as a cross between a monographic exhibition and a group show—an experiment in exhibition-making in the spirit of Farber’s call for an art of “both observing and being in the world.”

These paintings are an argument for complexity. They each consist of the same motif: a circle centered in the middle of the canvas. This circle acts as a portrait or a planet—an entity or a location in which things happen—or both. Neither is entirely knowable. Events in the form of peels/layers/sections/screens interrupt/highlight/contradict/hide the circle. These events could be considered lenses or filters through which one views this motif, like looking through a telescope or a microscope. Sometimes they present clarity or insight, and sometimes they lead in other directions. Rarely does the circle appear in full, but its presence is always suggested. In total there are seven small paintings of the same scale, and they orbit around a larger, central sun-like painting with a suggestion of an imminent change in weather. –AO

The exhibition’s 32 artists range in age from 29 to 97 and have contributed works that are deeply engaged with vital aspects of our contemporary culture. While there is no overarching theme, many of the artists share common interests. Several grapple with issues of representation, marginalization, and pressures placed on the body. Some artists offer interpretations of cultural practices, proposing how ancient forms of knowledge may be reimagined in the present, or reflect on the current political climate. Others consider the landscape, climate change and its repercussions, and the relationship between the land, capitalist expansion, and violence.
