“Finally, Playing Cards Fit For The Art Collector” Opening Ceremony

output_zvb28a[1]Since card games first appeared during Tang dynasty China, the ritual has been performed around a kitchen table: drinks in hand, AC on blast, and laughter abound.

But this year, LA-based contemporary artist Fawn Rogers wants to reinvent the notion of the card game and take it outdoors. Rogers’ latest installation titled SUBJECT, opening at the Museum of Art and History on February 13, invites viewers to watch super weeds grow from the soil under her resurfaced produce truck drive shafts. With the artist’s refurbished and reimagined drive shafts, organic and inorganic compounds slowly. (Full Article)

Hero’: Fawn Rogers Confronts Andrew Jackson and America’s Treatment of Native Americans” Huffington Post

“For the past few days I have been tuning into a live stream starring a rat in glass tank with a pile of $20 bills and green and gold spinning wheel that is too small for him. The rat knocks over the wheel, messes with the money in his ratty way as a backdrop changes randomly. This is “Hero” artist Fawn Rogers’ latest conceptual project. The piece seems clear and basic: We are trapped like rats — running to nowhere, consuming money, creating a mess. But Rogers, whose “Court” paintings of art collectors as playing cards caused a stir at Frieze Art Week in May this year, layers series of deeper meanings into this seemingly simple installation.

Fawn Rogers - “PRICE RANGES AND STUDIO IMAGES OF 19 CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS” FORBES

If anyone asks me for art collecting advice, my first tip is this: visit the studio. An artist’s studio is the finest place to experience the work, and make a real connection. In-person, you can ask the right questions, and increase the likelihood of a smart deal.

In April, I shared the “Price Ranges And Studio Images Of 21 Contemporary Artists” — based on the overwhelming feedback, I’ve decided to make this a regular feature. Today, we’ll visit studios from New York to Los Angeles, with stops in New Mexico, Stockholm, Toronto, Louisiana and Florida. The styles vary greatly, and the collective price range begins at $200 and tops out at $80,000. (Full Article)

Obtaining Self-Mastery at Frieze Week NYC” HuffingtonPost

Fawn Rogers “OBTAINING SELF-MASTERY AT FRIEZE WEEK NYC” HUFFINGTONPOST

 

“Obtaining self-mastery or enlightenment during Frieze week is not an easy mission. Frieze Art Fair New York poses many challenges for art dealers, artists, collectors and its boosters, known as patrons. Most of this is psychological. Think of a confidence course set up of many obstacles one must overcome in a military-style boot camp. At the end of the day you are either enlightened or defeated. I say this because many people in the art world do not understand, or seem to be confused by, the caliber of art these mega fairs exhibit, which is prime real estate for the most coveted works by highly-sophisticated collectors and patronage.” (Full Article)

Fawn Rogers has created a set of playing cards featuring prominent collectors chosen at random from a “Top 200″ list. We were told that two “wildcard” collectors not featured on the list (but rumored to have been recommended to Rogers by Jerry Saltz) also cameo as joker cards. Inside a regal-looking, semi-enclosed environment, visitors are invited to engage in a Texas Hold ‘Em-style poker game that both lampoons and…” (Full Article)
