Mel Ziegler,
2004

Austin-based Mel Ziegler received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA in sculpture from CalArts. From the late 1970s until her death in 1995, Ziegler collaborated with his partner, Kate Ericson. Their projects created new vocabularies for making art in public spaces, by involving community, examining history and responding to specific sites. The works or Ericson and Ziegler have been exhibited in a range of venues, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT; and Capp Street Project, San Francisco, CA. Their works were included in the 1989 Whitney Biennial; the 1991 “Places With A Past” public art component at the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC; Sculpture Chicago’s 1993 “Culture in Action” project; and the 1999 Museum of Modern Art exhibit, “The Museum is Muse.”

The public nature of Ziegler’s work continues the themes and forms established with Ericson over the course of their collaboration. Sites and histories are methodically researched, as in the case of Camouflaged History for the Spoleto Festival, in which a house was painted in a camouflage pattern in 72 paint colors designated as the “authentic colors of historic Charleston” by the Charleston Historic Society. Projects generally involved public space: in San Francisco, the artists inscribed roofing shingles with San Francisco’s street names and then re-roofed a neighborhood house with the transformed materials.

Sean Duffy,
2004

Sean Duffy's work stems from his intrigue into the phenomenon of repetition, recycling, sampling, and the cyclical reoccurrence of trends in pop-culture and art. These intrigues support Duffy’s work that seem to ceaselessly test the line drawn between the original and the copy, between the real-deal and the knock-off, and the “sense of detachment that occurs each time something is repeated or recycled.” Recent solo exhibitions have been mounted at such venues as the Susanne Vielmetter Berlin Projects, Berlin, Germany; Luckman Fine Arts Complex, California State University, Los Angeles; California 101 Building, San Francisco; Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Culver City, California. His work has been included in numerous group exhibitions such as: Greetings from the American Dream, Riverside Art Museum, Riverside, California; Realm of the Senses, James Cohan Gallery, New York; California Biennial, Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California; Black Belt, Studio Museum, Harlem; and Remix/Experimenter, Museum of Modern Art, San Salvador.
