Gallery artist André Hemer has spent the month of January as the artist-in-residence at The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA). Operated by MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists program, the residency runs year-round and invites artists and writers to make works on-site for 4-6 weeks. While in residence, Hemer has been collecting videos, images, and 3D scans using the environment within the Museum campus — these will be developed into new paintings, sculptures, and video works to be shown during 2020. A selection of these newly created works will be exhibited at our Auckland Art Fair Booth at the end of April.

Andre Hemer 'Day Paintings' Review on Eye Contact

Andre Hemer 'Day Paintings' Review on Eye Contact
Hemer, Day Painting #2, 2018

John Hurrell reviews Andre Hemer's Day Paintings exhibition on Eye Contact. 

"Like a conceptual flamethrower, Hemer's richly associative (and overtly decorative) works incinerate any notion of media purity, violently spurning intrinsic material properties, in a sense mocking art history with its lists of genius media specialists. Their rhetoric is mischievous and exciting, aggressively zeroing in on any limiting border in order to breach it."
