Columbus, Ohio—Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art & Design presents Season Two: Follow the Mud, five months of experimental programming in the gallery and beyond, featuring videos and installations by local and international artists, including Paris-based Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann, who conceives a performance at a 1940 Usonian-style home designed in part by the renowned sculptor Tony Smith and the art director for I Love Lucy.

The season opens Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019, with a reception and a sound performance by C. Spencer Yeh from 6 to 8 p.m. and runs through Sunday, March 15, 2020.

Season Two: Follow the Mud is organized as a series of “instances” or events, which are each accompanied by an installation, a performance, or a public talk. The gallery will remain open in between each instance, and artworks will gradually fill up the gallery space throughout the five-month-long season so each visit to Beeler Gallery will provide a unique experience.

The graphic designer team Vier5—known for their recent work for one of the most important contemporary art festivals, the 2017 edition of the quinquennial documenta 14, in Athens, Greece, which also took place in Kassel, Germany—conceived the graphic identity of Season Two: Follow the Mud. That graphic identity includes subverting conventions of artwork wall labels and guiding systems, along with a presentation of their iconic past works. The collaboration with Beeler Gallery is their first American project. 

Season Two projects include:

  • WATER, the first solo project of Paris-based artist Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann in an American institution. Badaut Haussmann’s research is situated at the intersection of several fields, including domesticity, psychology, and feminism. As fluid as states of water, from liquid to solid, from filtration to contamination, histories are uncovered and re-routed as materials for her sculptural installations and performative acts toward new pathways that nourish porosities of time and space. Badaut Haussmann’s project is presented in collaboration with Musée d’art contemporain de la Haute-Vienne, France, where the artist’s first solo museum exhibition took place in the summer of 2019.
  • A collaborative project between New York-based French artist Michel Auder and Ohio-based artist and CCAD Adjunct Faculty Michael Stickrod. Three screenings of both artists’ video work take place throughout the season, each accompanied by a sculptural installation by Stickrod. Works include Auder’s video May ’68 in ’78, about the late-’60s student movement in France; Subversive Historian (working title) by Stickrod, a video filmed in rural Ohio, upstate New York, New York City, Paris, and Pommiers, France; and Auder’s film Cleopatra (1970), whose cast includes many from and around Andy Warhol’s Factory.
  • The continuation of second shelf, a collaborative book acquisition project initiated by Brussels-based German artist Heide Hinrichs and a multi-institutional and international effort by Beeler Gallery and CCAD’s Packard Library; Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp; and University of Bristol, United Kingdom; with a goal of increasing holdings of publications by nonbinary and queer artists and artists of color. Beeler Gallery and these partnering institutions present the making of a forthcoming publication on the project on Sept. 20 during Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair 2019 at MoMA PS1, New York (Sept. 19–22). In spring 2020, Hinrichs presents inscriptions, a series of drawings based on other artists’ drawings, at Beeler Gallery. 
  • C. Spencer Yeh will launch the opening of Season Two with a sound performance. Yeh is recognized for his interdisciplinary activities and collaborations as an artist, improviser, and composer, as well his music project Burning Star Core. Yeh is a recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists award in 2019. In 2015, he was an Artist-in-Residence at ISSUE Project Room NYC, and he was included in the performance program for Greater New York at MoMA/PS1. A new project on vinyl record, The RCA Mark II, was recently published by Primary Information.

The season is curated by Director of Exhibitions Jo-ey Tang, and co-curated with Associate Director of Exhibitions Ian Ruffino and Registrar Marla Roddy.

The name for Season Two: Follow the Mud comes from the muddy path leading up to artist Michael Stickrod’s studio in McKean Township, Ohio, and serves as an analogy of the experience navigating among various artists projects at Beeler Gallery.

Beeler Gallery is supported by Greater Columbus Arts Council, Ohio Arts Council, and The Skestos Endowment Fund for Visiting Artists & Lectures. In kind sponsor: Brioso Coffee.

Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann: WATER is presented with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States. Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann: Exposure is presented in partnership with EXPO CHICAGO and media sponsor Art in America.


Schedule for Season Two: Follow the Mud

  • Instance No. 1: Opening reception
    Thursday, Oct. 10 | 6–8 p.m.

    Beeler Gallery | 60 Cleveland Ave. (Entrance on E. Gay Street) | Columbus, Ohio

    Join Beeler Gallery for the opening of Season Two: Follow the Mud, on view Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019, through Sunday, March 15, 2020, with a sound performance by C. Spencer Yeh. 

    Laëtitia Badaut Hassumann: WATER is structured as an active score, informed by the artist’s interest in how multiple voices materialized in objects, memories, images, and buildings, and the experience of time and space articulated through Modernist architecture in order to challenge its monolithic history. As states of water, from liquid to solid, from filtration to contamination, Badaut Haussmann begins her project at the gallery entrance. A replica of an architectural fragment of Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura, Japan, built by the Japanese architect and Le Corbusier-collaborator Junzo Sakakura, will be Beeler Gallery’s temporary new entrance. This “architectural ghost” is followed up by a prototype replica of a bamboo child’s seat erroneously attributed as Japanese design by another Le Corbusier-collaborator, the French architect Charlotte Perriand, during her time in Japan during World War II. Working with a Japanese bamboo atelier, Badaut Haussmann’s version of the seat is based on the proportion of her daughter.

    Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann’s research is situated at the intersection of several fields including domesticity, psychology and feminism. Her practice is centred around the concept of design and its history as a social and political expression. The references and the materials she uses testify to her propensity for a modernist aesthetic, without this ever becoming the subject of her work. Supported by a reflection on narrative forms, the relationship between analogies and macrostructures, her work functions as a succession of apparitions and reminiscences. Through it, she tackles questions essential to our epoch, in order to encourage emancipation and the appearance of new ways of thinking.

    New York-based French artist Michel Auder and Ohio-based artist Michael Stickrod’s collaborative project for Season Two: Follow the Mud at Beeler Gallery begins with the newly English-subtitled film, Michel Auder’s VIVA Reading (8min, digital video, transferred from 16mm film, 1969). In this film, Viva, a Warhol Superstar (also Auder’s former wife), reclines on a bed and read with languid assertiveness from the original French edition of Antonin Artaud’s, a key figure of twentieth-century European avant-garde, 1934 novelized biography of Heliogabalus, Or the Anarchist Crowned. Written around the time Artaud developed the theory of “Theatre of Cruelty”, the biography accounts and invents the 3rd-century Roman Emperor’s “organized anarchy” within the empire. Viva also stars in Michel Auder’s 1970 film Cleopatra (which will be screened during Instance No. 5 on Thurs., Dec. 12, 2019, 6-8:30 p.m.).

    For the Season Two opening, Michael Stickrod invites New York-based C. Spencer Yeh for a special sound performance. Yeh is recognized for his interdisciplinary activities and collaborations as an artist, improviser, and composer, as well his music project Burning Star Core. He has performed nationally and internationally, including at MoMA/PS1, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland; and Renaissance Society, Chicago. Yeh is a recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists award in 2019.
  • Instance No. 2: Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann: Exposure
    Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019 | 1–4 p.m.

    Shuttle pickup and introduction: Beeler Gallery | 60 Cleveland Ave. (Entrance on E. Gay Street) | Columbus, Ohio
    Tour: Glenbrow/Gunning House | Blacklick, Ohio

    Join Paris-based artist Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann for a performative and interpretive tour of the Gunning House, also known as Glenbrow, a 1940 Usonian-style home east of Columbus designed by the architects Tony Smith (a renowned sculptor), Theodore van Fossen (known for Rush Creek Village in Worthington, Ohio), and Laurence Cuneo (who became art director for the TV show I Love Lucy). Located on a 2.5-acre parcel, the house appeared on several endangered lists, including The Cultural Landscape Foundation and Columbus Landmarks. In 2014, Dorri Steinhoff and Joseph Kuspan purchased it. Their restoration took more than 3.5 years and received a State of Ohio Preservation Award in 2018. 

    Through photographs, sculptural installations, and interventions of architectural spaces, Badaut Haussmann maps out the unconscious undercurrents of design in the human condition. She “translates” the Gunning House into a site where multiple voices and histories can pass through, contest, coalesce, and break away. 

    Meet at Beeler Gallery at 1 p.m. for a preamble in the gallery, followed by shuttle service to the Gunning House. Please note that all visitors must take the shuttle to the Gunning House.

    Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann: Exposure is presented in partnership with EXPO CHICAGO. Media sponsor: Art in America

    RSVP details will be announced at beelergallery.org and through Beeler Gallery’s mailing list (which you can sign up for at beelergallery.org).
  • Downtown Art Sunday & Instance No. 3: Michel Auder x Michael Stickrod present May ’68 in ’78
    Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019 | 2 p.m. (Note: This date has changed from Nov. 3 to Nov. 10.)
    Beeler Gallery | 60 Cleveland Ave. (Entrance on E. Gay Street) | Columbus, Ohio

    Join Beeler Gallery for Instance No. 3, which coincides with the second edition of Downtown Art Sunday. Each November, downtown Columbus art institutions link up to encourage audiences to spend an extra hour on art and go beyond their usual cultural destinations. Refreshments will be provided at Beeler Gallery noon–6 p.m. by Brioso Coffee.

    This year’s participants include Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art & Design at Columbus Museum of Art; Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery; Ohio State University’s Urban Art Space; Cultural Arts Center; Hawk Galleries; and Contemporary Art Matters.

    For Instance No. 3, Ohio-based artist and CCAD Adjunct Faculty Michael Stickrod appears in person to present a sculptural installation that sets the scene in the gallery for viewers of May ’68 in ’78, Michel Auder’s newly edited video of never-before-seen interviews on the reverberation of the student movement in France in 1968, shot 10 years afterward. This work, which makes its premiere at Beeler Gallery, emerged in the summer of 2018 when the artists retrieved a box Auder left behind in the Rhône Valley in 1968, when he first left for New York, his base since 1970.

    May ’68 in ’78, edited down from six hours of footage and of which two hours will be shown at Beeler Gallery, will be presented alongside photographs, letters, and documents. It attests to a turning point in French culture that resonated with student movements across the world. Auder interviewed artists, workers, police, tax collectors, grocers, and his mother, among others, to gauge the feeling of society with a sense of distance and clarity. Seen in the context of the present cultural and political moment, how will May ’68 in ’78 read 50 years later, in 2019?
  • Instance No. 4: Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann invites Julia Trotta, presenting Forget to be afraid: A portrait of Linda Nochlin
    Tuesday, Nov. 19 | 6–7:30 p.m.
    Beeler Gallery | 60 Cleveland Ave. (Entrance on E. Gay Street) | Columbus, Ohio

    Paris-based artist Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann and New York-based filmmaker, curator, and writer Julia Trotta conceive an installation of their works in dialogue. A work consisting of curtains spanning 380 feet by Badaut Haussmann traverses the gallery, around which Trotta shows on projections and screens her film-in-progress Forget to be afraid: A portrait of Linda Nochlin, on her late grandmother, a pioneering art historian.

    Forget to be afraid: A portrait of Linda Nochlin is an archive of video clips shot over the last seven years of Nochlin’s life. The project offers an intimate, multifaceted view into the life and scholarship of the trailblazing feminist art historian. Within the footage, Nochlin discusses her groundbreaking 1971 article, “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?”, reads aloud her poetry, sings folk songs, learns how to use Facebook, meets with students, receives multiple lifetime achievement awards, visits friends in Paris, reflects on her love life, and battles cancer. At Beeler Gallery, a selection of vignettes have been selected in resonance to a work and impact of a life that is, and could be, forever in progress.

    Experience the installation starting at 6 p.m., and, at 6:30 p.m., the artists, who maintain a longstanding friendship, will hold their first public dialogue, on the topics of porous narratives, intimacy that resists sentimentality, representation of reality, and feminism.
  • Instance No. 5: Michel Auder x Michael Stickrod present Cleopatra (1970)
    Thursday, Dec. 12 | 6–8:30 p.m.
    Beeler Gallery | 60 Cleveland Ave. (Entrance on E. Gay Street) | Columbus, Ohio

    Out of public view for many years, New York-based French artist Michel Auder’s Cleopatra (1970, 155 min., color, 16mm transferred to video) based its characters’ improvisation on Joseph Mankiewicz's 1963 film of the same name starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton—the most expensive film ever at the time of its making. Auder’s cast includes many from and around Andy Warhol’s Factory, including Auder’s former wife, Viva, as the queen, Louis Waldon, Taylor Mead, Nico, Ondine, Ultra Violet, Andrea Feldman, Gerard Malanga, and Christopher Walken. 

    In his Cleopatra, Auder swapped objects, locations, and, maybe, even states of minds: the snowmobile, then a new invention, for horses; Warhol’s Factory for an arsenal; upstate New York for Egypt; and police in Rome as Roman soldiers. Auder shot his epic on location in the 16th-century surrealist park in Bomarzo, Italy, and the final scene of naked gladiators at the Cinecittà film studio, outside Rome (where Mankiewicz also filmed). Due to a dispute with disgruntled producers who destroyed the film, Auder never edited Cleopatra, which survives as an uncut, degraded copy of the original.
  • Instance No. 6: Michel Auder x Michael Stickrod present Subversive Historian (2019) 
    Thursday, Jan. 30, 2020 | 6–8 p.m.
    Beeler Gallery | 60 Cleveland Ave. (Entrance on E. Gay Street) | Columbus, Ohio

    A new video work, Subversive Historian (working title) by Ohio-based artist Michael Stickrod, was filmed in rural Ohio, upstate New York, New York City, Pommiers and Paris, France. It was shot around his and New York-based French artist Michel Auder’s recent trip to retrieve the long-lost archive of photographs and documents in the Rhône valley, France. It is on this trip that Auder uncovered May ’68 in ’78, never-before-seen interviews on the reverberation of the student movement in France in 1968, shot 10 years afterward (Nov. 3, 2019, Instance No. 3: Michel Auder x Michael Stickrod present May ’68 in ’78).
  • Instance No. 7: Heide Hinrichs and second shelf
    Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020, 23 p.m. ​​​​​​​
    Beeler Gallery | 60 Cleveland Ave. (Entrance on E. Gay Street) | Columbus, Ohio

    Beeler Gallery continues its support for second shelf, a collaborative book acquisition project initiated in 2018 by Brussels-based German artist Heide Hinrichs and a multi-institutional and international effort by Beeler Gallery and CCAD’s Packard Library; Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp; and University of Bristol, United Kingdom; with a goal of increasing holdings of publications by nonbinary, women and queer artists and artists of color. 

    The project is developed collaboratively with Elizabeth Haines, (historian, University of Bristol, UK), Marisa Sanchez (art historian / lecturer, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver), Jo-ey Tang (Director of Exhibitions, Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art & Design), Ersi Varveri (artist, Antwerp, Belgium and Athens, Greece) and Susanne Weiß (curator, Berlin, Germany).

    To follow up with Beeler Gallery and these partnering institutions’ presentation of the making of a publication (to be launched in 2020) on the project at Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair 2019 at MoMA PS1, New York, Hinrichs presents inscriptions, a series of drawings based on other artists’ drawings, at Beeler Gallery. Read more at second-shelf.org.
