The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum will introduce an exclusive limited-edition work by Robert Lazzarini in the Aldrich Editions series at the 2010 Editions|Artists’ Books Fair in New York City. The Fair will take place Friday, November 5 to Sunday, November 7.

In untitled (guard dogs), the artist utilizes the iconic image of a guard dog, represented on an aluminum sign. Lazzarini’s interest in distortion is closely linked to his development of a unique creative process, to his study of historical art, and to his search for an expressive device that can suggest his fascination with what lies beyond representation.

The Artist
Robert Lazzarini, born 1965 in New Jersey, received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts. He is primarily known for his sculptures and installations that alter perception and explore the relationship between image and object. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in venues such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Tapei Museum of Contemporary Art, the Deste Foundation, and the Kunsthalle Berne. His work is in the permanent collections of Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; Milwaukee Art Museum; The Mint Museum, Charlotte, NC; the Newark Museum, NJ; the Toledo Museum of Art, OH; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Davidson College, NC, among others. Lazzarini is currently a Visual Arts Fellow at the Neiman Center for Print Studies, Columbia University; he lives in New York and works in Brooklyn.

The Museum
The Aldrich is one of the few independent, non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States, and the only museum devoted to contemporary art in Connecticut. The Museum was opened to the public and incorporated as a nonprofit in 1964 by founder Larry Aldrich, who displayed the new work in a landmark 1783 house on Ridgefield’s historic Main Street, used today for administrative offices. Since 2004 the galleries have been located in a new 25,000 square-foot facility which received a design award from the American Institute of Architects. The Museum concentrates its exhibition program on solo exhibitions by emerging and mid-career artists, complemented by acclaimed gallery-based education programs that use the work on view to help adults, families, and over 7,000 students annually to connect to our world through contemporary art. The Aldrich is located at 258 Main Street, Ridgefield, CT 06877. All exhibitions and programs are handicapped accessible. Free on-site parking. Regular Museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 12 noon to 5 pm. For more information call 203.438.4519.
