The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM) announces the opening of its fall exhibition season on September 5, featuring:

Mel Chin: Rematch
September 5–December 20
The most expansive presentation of conceptual artist Mel Chin’s complex and diverse body of work to date, Rematch features approximately 50 works from the past 40 years. Including sculpture, video, drawing, painting, and rarely seen documentation of the artist’s public land art and performance works, the exhibition stresses the collaborative nature of many of Chin’s endeavors and explores his engagement with social justice and community partnerships.

Chin frequently inserts art into unlikely places, including destroyed homes, toxic landfills, and even popular television shows, investigating how art can provoke greater social awareness and responsibility. He has also produced a body of sculpture and drawings steeped in the legacy of Dada and Surrealism. Rematch highlights the thematic strands that run throughout Chin’s broad range of subject matter, materials, and formal approaches. Organized by the New Orleans Museum of Art. Coordinated at CAM by Lisa Melandri.

Mark Flood: Another Painting
September 5, 2014–January 3, 2015
The first solo museum exhibition of Houston-based artist Mark Flood presents key examples of the artist’s recent text-based, lace, and corporate logo paintings. With a deadpan and confrontational tone, Flood’s work interrogates the verbal and visual languages of social media, advertising, the government, and Wall Street. Using the vernacular of these establishments, Flood reveals what he believes to be their inherent absurdity and antagonistic relationship with society at large. Curator: Jeffrey Uslip

Carla Klein
September 5, 2014–January 3, 2015
Featuring expansive, desolate landscapes such as airport runways and sprawling roads beneath cloud-filled skies, this selection of recent large-scale paintings by acclaimed Dutch artist Carla Klein occupies the Museum’s 60-foot-long project wall. Working primarily in her signature aqueous blue-gray palette, Carla Klein portrays what she calls “nonplaces”: spaces constructed with the sole purpose of being passed through. Typically associated with activity and noise, the locations are absent of people, presented as unchanging, abandoned landscapes. Curator: Jeffrey Uslip

Kevin Jerome Everson
October 3–December 3
On view dusk–midnight, every night
CAM’s large-scale exterior video series Street Views features two short films by Virginia-based artist Kevin Jerome Everson. Highlighting everyday people involved in ordinary activities like practicing football, the films are projected at a massive scale and explore the beauty inherent in the subjects’ actions, creating moving portraits that reveal poetry and meaning within the mundane. Curator: Kelly Shindler
