Keltie Ferris’s paintings travel to California, Josephine Halvorson depicts her Massachusetts surroundings, Ann Hamilton’s work is archived in Ohio, and more in this week’s roundup.

  • Keltie Ferris: Doomsday Boogie is at the Santa Monica Museum of Art (Santa Monica, CA). The exhibition includes several of Ferris’s large-scale paintings and a series of thin vertical paintings that reference Barnett Newman’s abstract expressionist work. Closes April 5.
  • Josephine Halvorson has new paintings on view at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. (New York, NY). In Facings the artist concentrates on aspects of her Massachusetts home and studio—the foundation of a new structure, a woodshed, and heat from a fire. Closes March 1.
  • Ellen Gallagher: AxME opens at Haus der Kunst (Munich, Germany) on February 28. Organized by Tate Modern, this survey exhibition provides an overview of Gallagher’s practice, “exploring the themes which have emerged and recurred from her seminal early canvases, to her ‘wigmap’ grid collages, through to recent film installations and new bodies of work.” Closes July 13.
  • Ann Hamilton’s works are being digitally archived in a new publicly accessible collection within the Ohio State University’s Visual Resources Library, housed in the Department of History of Art. The Ann Hamilton Project Archive contains more than 1,000 downloadable, high-resolution images from thirty-five art installations by Hamilton. The digitization of the collection is ongoing and publicly available through vrl.osu.edu.
  • Jessica Stockholder will deliver the Presidential Lecture in Art and Art History at Lipscomb University (Nashville, TN). The Presidential Lectures “bring prominent art historians and practicing artists to the Nashville community to serve as a catalyst for further growth and discussion among students and local artists.” The event will take place on February 25 at 6pm.
  • Artist and Yale School of Drama teacher Ann McCoy interviewed Krzysztof Wodiczko for the Brooklyn Rail. Wodiczko discussed his works Abraham Lincoln: War Veteran ProjectionUnion Square (2012), and Out/Inside (rs) (2013) created for an exhibition in cooperation with the DOX Centre in the Czech Republic.
  • Writer Kristin Braswell interviewed Carrie Mae Weems for Ebony magazine. Weems talked about her diverse body of work, social activism, and her next project. A thirty-year survey of Weems’s work is on view at the Guggenheim Museum (New York, NY) through May 14.
