Landscapes Within presents selected images highlighting John Paul Caponigro’s many collaborations with nature.
.
The artist’s life’s work is a call to connection. It’s a call to connection with nature – the matrix from which we are born, which sustains us while we are alive, and to which we return when we die. It’s a call to incite conscientious creative interaction with our environment. It’s a call to connection with us – with ourselves, with each other, and with the larger world surrounding us.
.
These images function simultaneously as windows onto exterior landscapes and mirrors into interior landscapes. Pointing beyond objectivity and subjectivity towards intersubjectivity, it reveals how deeply involved we are in our experiences of the world. This work presents a series of invitations to look, to look again, and to look at looking.”

“Paola Antonelli, MoMA’s curator of Architecture and Design, provides insights into where design is headed both as a creative discipline and as a tool for making sense of the world. In this interview, she talks about the vision behind her upcoming exhibit at MoMA, Talk To Me, “We may not think about it consciously on a day to day basis, but objects around us are always talking to us in both explicit and implicit ways. There’s the obvious directive of a stop sign or a traffic cone, but there’s also the unspoken messaging conveyed via the ATM machine, the alarm clock, and that shiny new iPad. Objects have always been designed with the idea of communicating their use and meaning in mind, and it’s this relationship that MoMA’s Senior Curator of Architecture and Design, Paola Antonelli, seeks to explore in her upcoming exhibition, Talk to Me, slated for summer of 2011.”

Gallery Contract

December 16, 2010 | Leave a Comment |

Sign a contract with anyone who exhibits your artwork.

Putting verbal agreements in writing produces something tangible that all parties can refer to if memory fails – and it will. You and your representatives need a contract to work professionally together. If someone is unwilling to put something in writing, they’re not likely to honor it. Contracts are not about taking people to court; when they work best they keep you out of court.

Below is the contract my lawyer wrote for me. He’s graciously agreed to let me share it with you.

Change this basic contract to reflect the specific nature of your agreement with the agents or agencies who represent your work.

Don’t change clause 2. This key clause changes the nature of the consignment agreement. If the entity (individual or business) doesn’t reimburse you for sales or return your work you’ll be able to involve local law enforcement agents more easily. I’ve only had to do this once. So far, I’ve always been paid for sales of my work and I’ve always had my artwork returned. Many artist’s can’t say the same.

Do include a termination clause. Contracts should be revisited periodically – I recommend annually – to confirm that the nature of a relationship has remained the same. If it has evolved, change the contract to reflect that evolution.
