FROM THE DESK OF GEORGE JENNE:

Welcome to, “What’s He Building In There?”
It’s an occasional, friendly dispatch from my studio and an update on upcoming exhibitions, publications and juicy rumors.

Let’s begin.

UP ALL NIGHT

Sept 1-30 at LUMP – 505 S Blount Street, Raleigh, NC – http://lumpprojects.org

This show describes the intersection between video art and music video. It’s my first crack as a curator, and I’m excited to say that we’ve secured works from some of my absolute favorites like Gary Hill and Vito Acconci, who, along with works by a handful of brilliant emerging artists, will be paired with a selection of seminal music videos by the likes of Gerald Casale, Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze.

You’ve Reached the Office of Stuart Ullman

Oct 6 – Nov 4 at LUMP – 505 S Blount Street, Raleigh, NC – http://lumpprojects.org

The show will open with a recreation of the office set from Stanley Kubrik’s film version of The Shining. It will close with a video, shot in the set, and projected in the space, but expressed in a cinematic language that mangles Kubrik’s mesmerizingly uptight style. It’s all about fandom, myth, and obsessive verisimilitude.

STAY TUNED…

You’ll soon get info on solo shows at Privateview, Turin, Italy in November, Art + Leisure, New York in January, and Civilian Art Projects, Washington, DC in May.
