Ogilvy & Mather will be hosting New Language the third in a series of art installations at its new office space – The Chocolate Factory -- with a show featuring the work of 14 emerging and established contemporary artists.
New Language explores the construct of language, its persistent ambiguity and the shifting character of language in the age of new media. The work featured represents a diverse range of artistic styles ranging from political textiles, photography that indexes arcane textual works, and large sculptural installations that employ portions of texts as building blocks.
In commenting on Ogilvy & Mather’s support for the arts, Tham Khai Meng, Worldwide Creative Director said, “We are a company of artists, writers, designers, and creative people who use creativity to drive commerce. Our employees need to always be looking for inspiration and art is the ultimate medium for new forms of expression.”
Artists featured include Lisa Anne Auerbach, A.J. Bocchino, Iván Capote, Seong Chun, R. Luke DuBois, Mark Fox, Joshua Gurrie, Yael Kanarek, Glenda León, Danica Phelps, Alyssa Pheobus, Mickey Smith and Rachel Perry Welty, We feel fine (Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar). The exhibition is being curated by Jun Lee of Ogilvy & Mather New York. It will be on display at Ogilvy & Mather, “The Chocolate Factory,” on floors 4 and 8-11, from May 19 to October 15, 2010.

Deitch Projects is pleased to present May Day, an exhibition of new work by Shepard Fairey, as its final project. Titled not only in reference to the day of the exhibition’s opening, the multiple meanings of May Day resonate throughout the artist's new body of work. Originally a celebration of spring and the rebirth it represents, May Day is also observed in many countries as International Worker's Day or Labor Day, a day of political demonstrations and celebrations coordinated by unions and socialist groups. “Mayday” is also the distress signal used by pilots, police and firefighters in times of emergency.-Deitch projects
