2013–2014 AAM/ASC Lift Ticket Artist
In celebration of the ninth year of partnership with the Aspen Skiing Company, internationally recognized artist Mark Bradford has designed five different lift tickets for the 2013-14 skiing and snowboarding season, each featuring a text-based artwork reminiscent of his famous Merchant Posters series—artworks he created from community-oriented billboards, advertising posters, and signs removed from chain link fences in his Los Angeles neighborhood. Bradford’s compelling and varied artistic practice has garnered him such accolades as the 2009 MacArthur Genius Award. The Merchant Posters series was the subject of a 2010 AAM exhibition; the only exhibition to focus exclusively on this body of work.
Mark Bradford was born in Los Angeles in 1961. A traveling survey exhibition of his work was organized by the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, and premiered at the institution in May 2010. The exhibition traveled to the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Dallas Museum of Art; and a co-presentation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Other solo exhibitions include: Through Darkest America by Truck and Tank, White Cube South Bermondsey, London, UK (through January 12, 2014); Mark Bradford, Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham (2012); ArtPace, San Antonio TX, (2008); Neither New Nor Correct: New Work by Mark Bradford, The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, (2007); Mark Bradford, Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC (2006-2007); and Mark Bradford: Niagra, LA><ART, Los Angeles (2006). Group exhibitions include: Prospect.1 New Orleans (2008 – 2009); Life on Mars, 55th Carnegie International (2008 – 2009); Collage: The Unmonumental Picture, The New Museum, New York (2007); Brave New Worlds, The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2008); Eden's Edge: Fifteen LA Artists, The Hammer Museum at UCLA, Los Angeles (2007), as well as the 2006 Sao Paolo Biennial, the 2006 Busan Biennial, Busan, South Korea, and the 2006 Whitney Biennial: Day for Night, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
2012–2013 AAM/ASC Lift Ticket Artist
Notice the witty black-and-white drawings on your lift ticket? The Aspen Art Museum and Aspen Skiing Company selected six artworks by artist David Shrigley to be featured on a limited-edition series of lift tickets for the 2012–13 ski season. David Shrigley works in a number of artistic media but is perhaps best known for his monochromatic, cartoon-like drawings that use a humorous interplay between image and text to highlight human foibles and existential anxieties, and which question everyday perspectives through the use of both image and text.
David Shrigley (b. 1968, Macclesfield, England) is the author of several books, a cartoon contributor to The Guardian’s Weekend section since 2005, and has directed music videos for such groups as Blur and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. London’s Hayward Gallery recently presented a mid-career survey of his work (2012), which traveled Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; other recent solo exhibitions include How Are You Feeling, Cornerhouse, Manchester (2012) and the Museum M in Leuven, Belgium (2010–11). Shrigley was featured at the AAM as part of the two-artist exhibition To the Wall (2007). He currently lives and works in Glasgow.
Exhibition: November 22, 2012–Summer 2013
The New Restaurant at Elk Camp, Snowmass Mountain
Los Angeles–based artist Dave Muller is known for his wall drawings and large-scale works on paper that employ iconic structures such as the top-ten list to create diagrammatic but uniquely personal portraits based on the musical passions of their subjects. Stemming from his deep love of music and the communal dialogue it generates across generations and cultures, Muller’s work deftly translates these concerns into aesthetic form. As one critic recently put it, Muller’s work is about the good things that make life worth living—good music, good friends, a little messiness, a lot of color, and a lot of fun.
For the 2012–2013 ski season, Muller has created a site-specific wall drawing for the new restaurant at Elk Camp on Snowmass Mountain. Muller’s installation opens to the public on the season’s opening day. The wall painting is based on a brief questionnaire e-mailed from the artist to Aspen Skiing Company employees in which he inquired about their favorite albums of all time as well as their height.
Dave Muller (b. 1964, San Francisco) lives and works in Los Angeles. He has exhibited widely over the past twenty years, including solo exhibitions at such venues as the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, Spain; Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the St. Louis Art Museum, among others. Muller’s large-scale wall drawing An Up-and-Down Arc w/ White Noise was included in the Aspen Art Museum’s 2008 group exhibition Marlon Brando, Pocahontas, and Me, and his 2009 wall painting Solar Arrangment (2009) is permanently installed in the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Recent group exhibitions to feature Muller’s work include Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2008) and The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl (2011), which was organized by the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and traveled to the ICA Boston and the Miami Art Museum.
