Frank Perrin, “Local fire” #1 (Bike) – Las Vegas, New Mexico – 2017 courtesy Mayeur Projects – The whole show will be on view next Saturday, April 15, 4-8 pm, at our opening.
“For an art historian, to work with Mayeur Projects in New Mexico is a real opportunity. We are on the lands of the historic land art but also on those of the advanced research regarding ecology, a really big contemporary universal cause. I finish at the moment a work for French “Actes Sud” publisher, entitled “An ecological Art”. Plastic creation and Anthropocene: an immersion in the American West, the particularly sensitive zone since the 1970s in conservation and in the environmental protection, offers the opportunity to meet numerous local actors, and to exchange, in the frame in particular inter-university debates were set up by Mayeur Projects. Finally, meeting artists, numerous in the perimeter Albuquerque-Santa-Fe-Las Vegas, is always a big value for a first-hand work” Paul Ardenne
Mayeur Projects has now its representation as a sculpture (a visual “dispatch”), in current NMHU Media Arts & Technology department show: “DISPATCH:Trolley”. Artist and Professor David Lobdell has been invited, with 8 other Las Vegas artists, to join a table with representations of 9 Las Vegas art spaces, in combination with a map of the New Mexico art establishment initiated in Spring 2016 by Santa Fe art groups SCUBA and Strangers Collective. David has chosen Mayeur Projects, as a project in Las Vegas, described by Christian as a flower between Atlantic ocean and Rocky mountains, between Eiffel tower and L.A. buildings, an art space whose owners are periodically suspended in the air, as suggested by the Air France Jumbo Jet. Thank you David!
