Opening this past month was RENTAL’s first solo exhibition of new works by artist Brendan Fowler, entitled Brendan Fowler at Rental Fall 2009. Aside from the official opening, RENTAL has a special surprise performance in store, as part of Performa 09, which will be taking place in the gallery on Sunday November 15th, from 1pm-6pm. Further information regarding the opening can be found below:
Initially best known for his performances, and increasingly for his object based works, Brendan Fowler at Rental, Fall 2009 continues the artist’s growth into the sculptural territory of an interdisciplinary practice. Framed photographs and silkscreened prints crash in violent compositions that Fowler began as an attempt to capture the percussive rhythms of free jazz. As an undergrad, Fowler studied free jazz alongside printmaking, and now, more than twelve years later, he marries the two out of the hope that free jazz, as a form, will inform his practice and serve as an opening in his work. After a considerable hiatus from his focus, it is a rhythm, which has, in recent years, come back to his work in earnest.
