Marcel Dzama "Hollow Laughter" @ Kunstmuseum Thun, Switzerland

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 30, 2014
Switzerland is a lovely place to visit in the summer. Mix that with the fact that Marcel Dzama's art is a lovely thing to look at and immerse yourself in, we suggest perhaps a summer vacation in Thun to visit the exhibition, "Hollow Laughter" at the Kunstmuseum Thun to see the works of the Canadian artist. Dzama's dark, dystopian, but fairy tale like work has been capturing audiences attention from around the globe for years, and his explorations into film, performance, installation, sculpture and drawing get more and more interesting and provocative through the years.

  Puppets, Pawns, and Prophets features recent and new work by Marcel Dzama, including three videos inspired by the game of chess, as well as puppets and masks based on the characters, drawings, collages, dioramas, and sculptural works. Dzama has become known for his prolific drawings, which are characterized by their distinctive palette of muted browns, grays, greens, and reds. In recent years, the artist has expanded his practice to encompass three-dimensional work and film and has developed an immediately recognizable language that draws from a diverse range of references and artistic influences.

In Illustration: Long Time Favorite, Marcel Dzama

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 23, 2011
Marcel Dzama's brilliantly unique and witty watercolor illustrations have been a long time favorite of mine, and staple of inspiration in my own illustration practice. Marcel Dzama (born 1974 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) is a contemporary artist who lives and works in New York. His work has been exhibited internationally, in particular his ink and watercolor drawings, which illustrate strange pale and slender characters with a sense of vintage nostalgia.

Winnipeg-based fine artist, Neil Farber, has a solo exhibition, Slugging, currently showing at Edward Thorp Gallery in NYC. We personally have been fans of Farber's work since he was a founding member of The Royal Art Lodge, an artist collective based in Winnipeg with Michael Dumontier and Marcel Dzama.

Marcel Dzama and Michael Riedel at David Zwirner NYC

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 11, 2011
We finally got a chance to stop by Marcel Dzama and Michael Riedel's exhibitions at David Zwirner in New York City this past week. We had previewed Dzama's exhibition last month, and highly anticipated a great show, which is exactly what we found. And we were quite impressed with Riedel's elaborate text-based work.

The Paintings of Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber Ltd

Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 17, 2011
We were longtime fans of the Royal Art Lodge, a collective from Winnipeg that consisted of Marcel Dzama, Michael Dumontier, and Neil Farber. We even profiled their work in Feb 2007. Now we are very much into the wit, humor, and strong conceptual paintings of the second incarnation of Royal Art Lodge, Michael Dumontier and Neil Farber Ltd. A portfolio after the jump . . .
