    What is time and how can it be represented and measured artistically? And how can the future be thought? FUTURA. Measuring Time at Hamburger Kunsthalle invites 30 international artists, including Ceal Floyer and Pierre Huyghe, to address fundamental questions about temporality, sustainability and visions. The exhibition architecture transforms the entire first floor of the Galerie der Gegenwart, freeing it from modular walls and partitions. In this open design, artworks and artifacts are presented together in surprising dialogues that span across different historical periods and disciplines.

    October Salon is a representative manifestation of accomplishments in the field of visual art in Serbia, found and funded by the City of Belgrade.

    This year, the exhibition titled The Dreamers intends to question not only the misleading and ambiguous nature of the real but the space occupied by dreams—intended as the metaphorical embodiment of a space of freedom—which is able to challenge the certainty of the real world, of acquired knowledge and of our own beliefs.

    The largest part of the exhibition of the 58th October Salon | Belgrade Biennale 2021 which includes works by 63 artists, among them Pierre HuygheAnri Sala and Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, will be presented at the Belgrade City Museum, galleries of the Belgrade Cultural Centre, the Movie Theatre of the Belgrade Cultural Centre, the park of the Museum of Yugoslavia and a number of public spaces all over the city. It is planned for this year’s edition of the Salon to involve television and radio platforms as exhibition venues.

    All Access is a series of online visits to exhibitions which currently have restricted public access. As museums and galleries around the world are mostly closed, the series takes us into these spaces with the artists and curators as guides.

    Here, curator Agnes Gryczkowska introduces a section of the exhibition Sun Rise | Sun Set at the Schinkel Pavillon Berlin.

    Sun Rise | Sun Set brings together contemporary and 20th century artists to form a multi-layered response to the fast unfolding ecocatastrophe. The selected works permeate one another, creating small organisms and turning Schinkel Pavillon into a surreal landscape, highlighting the interconnectivity between humans, animals, plants, inanimate objects, technologies and non-beings.

    The exhibition includes two works by Pierre Huyghe. The video tour below focuses on the room in which "Circadian Dilemma (Dia del Ojo)" is installed. The work is part of a series of aquarium works in which the artist creates cyclically-oriented underwater scenarios. The landscape of the water basin is modelled on a Mexican cave and is populated by six fish of the species Astyanax mexicanus, along with microscopic bacteria and algae.

    Coinciding with the inauguration of the Hôtel des Collections on June 29, the MO.CO. unveils the first public presentation of masterpieces from the Ishikawa Collection. This outstanding and relatively recent private collection begun in 2011 by Yasuharu Ishikawa, a Japanese entrepreneur born in 1970 at Okayama, is characterized by exceptional coherence and a Japanese feel that derives primarily from its emphasis on minimal, understated, subtle forms.


    The exhibition Intimate Distance, curated by Yuko Hasegawa, Artistic Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (MOT) features nearly 30 works by artists such as Simon Fujiwara, Ryan Gander, Liam Gillick, Pierre Huyghe, and Anri Sala.
