2019-2023 The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Artworks Grant Project:

Artists Accessing Scientific Labs: Conversations with the Public

This National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Artworks Grant Project will take place at UC Davis in 2023.  Artists selected for the project will travel to UC Davis to conduct their artistic research in science laboratories on campus to produce new research and engage the community for conversation at the Shrem Museum. Each NEA event will have three steps: (1) Artistic production: A curatorial committee selects and invites artists to campus during one academic quarter. Artists and scientists use the time to share their research and produce experimental work. (2) Public Conversations: The artist/scientist pair engages the public with their work in a live public conversation at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis. (3) Documentation: process and work from the collaboration will be published in a new online publication hosted by UC Davis.

Useful Fictions & The Speed of Light Expedition

Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 and Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019
Galerie HUS, Montmartre, Paris, France

The Speed of Light (SOL) Expedition brings together artists, designers, scientists, and the public to produce work individually and collectively as we travel the same eight kilometers of distance between Mont Valérien in Suresnes and Montmartre defined by physicist Hippolyte Fizeau in his significant 1849 Speed of Light experiment in Paris. Designed with incredible precision, Fizeau’s experiment is a part of the collective genius, a wave of breakthroughs in history that gave birth to Einstein’s theory of relativity that introduced paradigm shifts in the science and art of the modern world.
As an interdisciplinary research project taking place in the “city of light," the SOL Expedition harnesses the momentum of this historical wave of collective genius. The project invites collaborators to conduct research, produce artwork, and design games for public participation, stimulating inquiry and exchange as cultural production that inspires agency. Forum sites and ateliers will be set up at cultural and arts institutions along the journey to invite collaboration. The creative outputs will be documented as a publication for wide dissemination.

“The Island: Prologue”

    Meulensteen Gallery
    511 West 22nd Street NYC
    February 23 – April 22, 2012

[Exerpt] “Meulensteen is pleased to present Tim Hyde’s The Island: Prologue on February 23rd in the Project Space. The installation presents photographs, drawings and text as an overture to a body of work that the artist is developing for his forthcoming major exhibition at Meulensteen in 2013.

The series begins with a story about a small island in the Pacific Ocean. The island was the site of a shipwreck in the 1950s that set off a series of geopolitical disputes. These conflicts, combined with the cultural shifts of the early twentieth century, resulted in human evacuation and subsequent replacement by large colonies of sea mammals. The animals have since moved into a house abandoned by the island’s former human inhabitants and established their own strict social order within the ruins.”

Dual Artist Exhibition at Marso Gallery in Mexico City

Marso Gallery in Mexico City is pleased to announce Terrarium– a dual solo exhibition by artists Andrea Galvani and Tim Hyde.

Terrarium is a conversation in five rooms taking place simultaneously. The historical architecture of the gallery is used by the artists to enclose a dialog between separate geographic explorations of time and memory. The exhibition itself is alive and in flux, featuring a collaboratively-built modular sculpture that is continuously reconfigured to enable conversations and actions with artists and curators in Mexico City.

The show includes more than 25 works of photography, collage, drawing, video, and sculpture. New works are combined with projects that have been exhibited internationally at venues that include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Moscow Biennale, the Ar/ge Kunst Galerie Museum in Bolzano Italy, the Poznan Biennale in Poland, and the Whitney Museum of Art in New York. Terrariummarks the first exhibition by both artists in Mexico.

In addition to the exhibition at Marso Gallery, the artists will present a special installation at Zona Macoderived from their ongoing collaborative project, The Skull Sessions. The Skull Sessions are conversations rendered as form. Each Session is a dialogue recorded and reshaped into experimental publications, objects, images, and installations.
