Brasilia

Michael Pestel and Paul Krainak • Brasilia (2006)
One of eight paintings by West Virginia University facu lty member Paul Krainak in the exhibition "Brasilia: Constructing Oscar Niemeyer and Heitor Villa-Lobos" at Chatham College. The performer was Michael Pestel, and the video of that performance is part of his collaborative exhibition with Paul Krainak at Chatham College titled "Brasilia: Constructing Oscar Niemeyer and Heitor Villa-Lobos." The impetus for the exhibition at hand was a conversation with Krainak, who suggested doing a show about Villa-Lobos and the "conflation of folk idioms with the whole machinery of the modernist orchestra. The resultant exhibition is an examination of modernism told through two passionate talents (Villa-Lobos and Niemeyer) fused within the crucible of a utopian dream (though also consider the metaphor extended to Pestel and Krainak working within and struggling with the modernist tradition). On the walls, eight paintings by Krainak, a professor of painting at West Virginia University, are meticulous and architectonic while simultaneously conducting equatorial heat. They represent paintings Niemeyer made of his designs for a never-realized house that Villa-Lobos requested and that were sealed with him in his coffin. A composition by Villa-Lobos, written for the dedication of Brasilia but which he instead destroyed, coincidently has the same title as the work to be performed tonight, "The Brasilia Concert." Fact? Fiction? If the exhibition is a modernist critique, and an aesthetic self-examination by Pestel and Krainak, the video is a redemptive moment.

Paul Krainak, a painter and art professor at West Virginia University, has seen many of the Carnegie Internationals, and visited the 2005 show 10 times."What was most successful about this show was that there were a lot of artists represented who were important to me," says Krainak.Says Krainak, "Although politics and philosophy were guiding forces in Hoptman's selections, the resulting show was far more intimate, despite its large scale and big narratives."He adds, "To its credit, the International did not try to compete with other popular venues for audience.
