Ericka Beckman

January 9 - March 12, 2016
Opening reception: Saturday, January 9, 6-8pm

Cherry and Martin is proud to present the first US exhibition of Ericka Beckman’s film-sculpture installation, Cinderella (1986). This is the first time in America the film Cinderella has been seen in context with its original props. The exhibition will also include drawings and photographs that relate to Cinderella, exploring the visual discourse of Beckman’s landmark piece, a foundational work in the history of 80s moving image art.

Ericka Beckman's work has been shown in museums, galleries and festivals around the world for the past three decades. Recent solo and group exhibitions include Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland; MAGASIN, Centre National d'Art Contemporain de Grenoble, France; Tate Modern, London, UK; Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Turin, Italy; Swiss Institute, New York, NY; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY. Her work has been included in three Whitney Biennials and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's The Pictures Generation 1974-1984. JRP Ringier’s monograph on the artist will be released in early 2016. Her work is in the collections of Anthology Film Archives, New York, NY; Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Stiftung Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland; The British Film Institute, London, UK; The Metropolitan Museum, New York, NY; The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, OH; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY. 


Brian Bress

January 16 - March 12, 2016
Opening reception: Saturday, January 16, 6-8pm

Cherry and Martin is pleased to present a new body of wall-mounted HD monitor works by Brian Bress. Bress’s wall-mounted HD monitors show a soundless, digital loop in which isolated actors (often the artist himself) perform in various forms of dress. The faces, torsos, and arms of these characters are obscured by painted masks and suits. They face frontal and use the HD monitor’s screen as a picture plane through which they cut with reciprocating saws to reveal their own presence.

Brian Bress will participate in the 2016 Moving Image Biennial at the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève, curated by Caroline Bourgeois, Andrea Bellini and Massimiliano Gioni. His upcoming touring solo museum exhibition, “Brian Bress: Make Your Own Friends,” opened at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (Salt Lake City, UT, 2015) and will travel to the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (Denver, CO, February 2016). Bress has recently had solo exhibitions and projects at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Los Angeles, CA); Museo d'arte contemporanea (MACRO) (Rome, Italy); Santa Barbara Museum of Art (Santa Barbara, CA); and New Museum (New York, NY). Brian Bress lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.

Cherry and Martin is open Tuesday - Saturday from 10am-6pm and by appointment. The 2732 space is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11am-5pm and by appointment. For images and additional information, please contact or call 310 559-0100.
