Austin Figurative Gallery/Pump Project: Something old, something new
Two gallery events, one focused on past Texas masters and one featuring artists creating new work in real time, show us where we've been and where we're going
Arts Story June 1, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...In one Eastside arts space, the Austin Figurative Gallery, you have a showing of work by two Texas masters who helped bring contemporary art to Austin in the middle of the last century. Then, just blocks away, at the Pump Project Art Complex, you have a clutch of the city's current contemporary artists creating new work before your very eyes...."
"I'll Be It" at Pump Project
The exhibit of four Austin artists' work at Pump Project exposes the fun of objecthood
Arts Review September 24, 2015, by Caitlin Greenwood
"...Pump Project has long straddled the line between a community arts hub and a contemporary gallery. When former director Debra Broz left in 2013 and Rebecca Marino inherited the space, the new director seemed primed to reinvent the gallery's overall direction and push for innovative growth..."

“Robert Collier Beam: Scry” at Pump Project
The artist uses photographs and other media to catch the invisible and intangible but in a remarkably peaceful way
Arts Review May 25, 2017, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...Despite all that agitation and need, the show is remarkably still, as though Beam has found peace with the mysteries of what he can't have or know. If that is so, I envy him.

“I saw the world” at Pump Project
Imperialism and identity compete in Betelhem Makonnen’s solo show about a 19th century Ethiopian prince
Arts Review December 22, 2016, by Caitlin Greenwood
"...Betelhem Makonnen's latest exhibition, "I saw the world," explores the visual representation of dichotomy through the lens of colonialism. Hosted by Pump Project and curated by gallery director Rebecca Marino, the solo show tells only a small fraction of Ethiopia's history in the crux of British control at the turn of the 19th century, narrowly focusing in on Prince Alemayehu Tewodros...."

Dumping the Water Pump
Should Austin's conservation success forestall WTP 4?
News Story February 20, 2009, by Katherine Gregor
"...WTP 4 Phase I is scheduled to open in 2014, drawing from Lake Travis to add 50 million gallons per day to the city's current water-treatment capacity. The core of the enviros' argument: With conservation working, we won't need that additional capacity until far after 2020, so why not ice the $494 million project for at least three to five years? The advantages cited: Keep customer rates lower (by delaying the need to pay off an estimated $400 million in additional bond debt), benefit from wisdom in the city's upcoming comprehensive plan for growth, and – most important to this group – keep the focus and the pressure on water conservation..."

Pump Project, HOPE, Co-Lab DEMO forced to move in 2018
DAILY Arts November 20, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...The East Austin Studio Tour is intended to be a celebration of the city's vibrant visual arts scene. But the second weekend of the 2017 EAST felt more like a funeral as word circulated that Eastside mainstay Pump Project Art Complex was losing its home after 12 years, a move that would displace 40 artists who had studios there...."

Austin's Artspace Crisis and Microvenues
Are home art galleries and mini-performance venues the answer to the space crunch?
Arts Story June 21, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...This Saturday night, when Pump Project Art Complex closes its exhibition "The Door by the Garden," it will also bring to a close 13 years of hosting art shows and artists on Shady Lane in East Austin. As a result of its landlord not renewing the nonprofit's lease, two dozen studios are going away, displacing more than 40 artists who have been using the space to make paintings, prints, ceramics, glass, jewelry, mixed media, and other kinds of art...."
"Vladimir Mejia: Mi Feito Don't let this time be in vain"
This show feels like a glimpse into the artist's camera roll, a peek into the digital chronicling of a life and all that is consumed throughout it
Arts Review March 29, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...What's there? There are probably photos of people, yourself and your loved ones, pictures taken to chronicle the facts of your life and those that fill it; more than a few screenshots, perhaps noteworthy bits of an article or interesting juxtapositions spotted on some timeline or feed; and some saved pop culture bites, photos of your favorite celebrities or funny memes. Most recently, in my own roll, are photos from Vladimir Mejia's show at Pump Project, "Mi Feito Don't let this time be in vain," a show that itself feels like a glimpse into the artist's camera roll, a peek into the digital chronicling of a life and all that is consumed throughout it...."

For 2011, the Texas Biennial lives up to its name by spreading across the state
Arts Story April 8, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...Partnerships were established with BOX 13 ArtSpace in Houston and Blue Star Contemporary Art Center in San Antonio to exhibit work by Biennial artists, and upward of 60 arts organizations from Corpus Christi to Abilene and Lufkin to El Paso agreed to take part in the Biennial through their own Texas-oriented art exhibitions, artist talks, and special events. Plenty of art will still be exhibited in Austin – in such familiar venues as Big Medium, Pump Project Art Complex, the University of Texas' Visual Arts Center, and Women & Their Work, as well as in less conventional spots, such as the fifth and 14th floors of 816 Congress and a vacant house in the 1300 block of Rosewood – but now the Biennial stretches to every point on the Lone Star...."
What about Brooke and the Wolves?
This is where the wild things art.
DAILY Arts February 9, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
The pressures of media?
Listen: I'm posing you no more threat
than a soft floor of moss leading
into a wild wood of green and shadow.
All I'm doing here,
at the edge of this blogpost,
is pointing out a thing that
will make your dark day brighter
or add a sweet touch of darkness to
whatever's just a bit Too Damned Bright
in the waking hours of your life right about now.
Never mind the rest of Brooke Gassiot's installation,
a multimedia grouping of work called "Pressure,"
now on display at Pump Project until February 15th.
Never mind the big central piece that required, we imagine,
most of the project's Kickstarter funds to be completed.
Yes, it has resonances for a hundred MFA theses built into it,
just waiting to be unpacked by budding young art scholars,
and it's an impressive structure that starts with a refurbished mid-century TV console on the floor
and ends with huge papier-mâché and tulle representations of steam in the rafters.
But, no, I said never mind that.
What kind of wild animal are you that you
don't do whatever some blogwriter tells you?
Are you a wolf, is that it?
Are you a – listen, don't mind the lightboxes, either.
Don't mind the two lightboxes, more like Gassiot's usual work,
that comment on the installation as a whole even while displayed as part of the installation itself.
No, wolf, I said never mind those.
Jesus. Could you possibly be more fucking undomestic?
Don't mind those things,
don't pay attention to those things,
nor to the clever sculpture that Gassiot has added to the Pump Project's actual pump.
We're not here for that.
Other places will feature reviews about all of "Pressure," you can be sure;
there may eventually be more learned explication than anyone, even the artist,
can bear, because there's a lot going on in the show and yadda yadda yadda.
We're here because, look,
there's one work within the installation that you really need to see.
That you should just drive on down to Pump Project to see –
you are a driving wolf, right? – before the show closes..."
