    Screening: Four Liverpool Musicians (Bette, Budgie, Ken, Louisa), 2018⁠

     

    For the 2018 Liverpool Biennial, Ari Benjamin Meyers created a series of musical compositions that form the basis for film portraits of four musicians from Liverpool, or with musical ties to the city: Bette Bright (Deaf School), Budgie (Siouxsie and the Banshees/Big in Japan), Ken Owen (Carcass) and Louisa Roach (She Drew The Gun). ⁠

    The invention of the light bulb is an achievement of the 19th century which, particularly in the pulsating metropolises of the world, put an end to the natural alternation of day and night. Glaringly illuminated filling stations, shopping centers, shift work and night clubs are just some aspects of this development.

     

    The night without boundaries is the focus of this major exhibition, presenting works from early modernism to the present in pursuit of the question of how the natural order of bright and dark, of activity and sleep has been turned on its head, how perception and everyday routine change fundamentally and intermediate worlds are created. In pictures, sculptures and installations, visitors can experience how the twilight can inspire the imagination and how the masquerade of nocturnal actors is brightly exposed in the glare of artificial light.

    Hito Steyerl is an artist, theorist and acute observer of our contemporary world. This survey exhibition, the largest of its kind in Canada, brings together a significant number of her works from the last 15 years.

    Steyerl's playful explorations of technology and power structures result in darkly ironic cultural critiques that feel particularly relevant today. She blends the personal with the political, the satirical with the serious, while addressing a range of topics from economic collapse to globalization. Steyerl draws us into her world, asking us to reflect on our own roles in shaping the not-so-distant future.

    The title Ryan Gander has chosen for his exhibition asserts an inconceivable temporal dimension. A collaboration over 500 million years? Between man and earth? Is it a look into the past or to the future? “Stone upon Stone upon Fallen Stone”, Lawrence Weiner wrote on the building of the Kunsthalle in 1983. In view of such dimensions, the rich hundred-year history of the Kunsthalle Bern is infinitesimally nothing.

    Bar Laika presents: one year old and a screening of Anri Sala, Dammi i Colori

     

    Anri Sala, Dammi I Colori, 2003, chronicles the work of Sala’s friend and former artist Edi Rama as Mayor of Tirana, Albania. Dammi i Colori evokes the city as canvas and champions art as a means for social transformation. Edi Rama became mayor of Tirana in 2000, and quickly went about re-painting the capital’s decaying buildings in brilliant, provocative colors and patterns. His aesthetic and political act was a powerful visualization of change—a source of both public debate and renewed civic pride.

This exhibition presents major installations, film works and drawings by Sala from the past five years. The title Le Temps coudé, borrows from the French phrase ‘faire un coude’ and refers to warps or bends in our experience of what we see, hear and know.

    Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) is pleased to announce the United States solo institutional debut of Ari Benjamin Meyers. Kunsthalle for Music, co-founded with the Witte de With Center of Contemporary Art, Rotterdam and Spring Workshop, Hong Kong, is an itinerant institution dedicated to the presentation of music and music performance within the histories and environments of the visual arts.

    For Kunsthalle for Music, an especially selected ensemble performs an on-site exhibition of musical works, which are drawn from a repertoire or “collection” that includes existing and newly commissioned solos, duets, and group pieces composed by Meyers as well as other artists. Ari Benjamin Meyers: Kunsthalle for Music at MCASB will transform the museum into a contemporary space for live performance of musical work, eluding the barriers between rehearsal and performance, performers and audience.

    A Public Apology to Siksika Nation, AA Bronson's project for the first Toronto Biennial of Art, originates in family stories about his great-grandfather, the first missionary to the Siksika (Blackfoot) Nation, stories that do not agree with recorded (white) history. Many years of research have resulted in a book, a performance and an installation that together explore the generational trauma that has resulted from the colonization of the Canadian Prairies. Adrian Stimson is the great-grandson of Old Sun, the famous chief of the same period; he responds to AA Bronson's Apology with an installation and sculptures, generated in close dialogue with residential school survivors and leaders, to reveal the layers of colonization and Indigenous resistance in his community.

    It’s a Small World, Simon Fujiwara's project for the 16th Istanbul Biennial, began after he discovered a large quantity of semi-ruined figures of pop icons in the trash of an attractions’ manufacturer near Istanbul. He salvaged these figures and combined them with thirteen architectural miniatures. A prison revolving around Batman’s the Joker’s face, a museum built among the ruins of Disney characters or a hospital buried in the legs of Iron Man. In these sculptural works, the functions of everyday civic architecture are blended with symbols from the mass-entertainment world. Fujiwara’s miniature city draws attention to the ways in which fantasy and escapism have bled into the core structures of our everyday lives, often masking the brutal pragmatism of globalized capitalism.

    Opening at Pirelli HangarBicocca on September 11, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané's first exhibition in Italy will present more than twenty works made from 1998 to the present time, ranging from films, virtual reality devices, 3D holograms, sculptures, and installations. The artist will place the physical and sensory dimension of the viewer at the heart of the exhibition project, offering new visions of his entire corpus of works as they dialogue with one another.

    The exhibition will be characterized by a shift between material and immaterial experiences, expanded further through a site-specific intervention that will redefine the industrial quality of Pirelli HangarBicocca, while both concealing and revealing the exhibited works.

    Gabriel Kuri creates sculptures that embody questions of value, arresting usually intangible flows of information in witty and engaging forms. His exhibition at WIELS — his first institutional solo show in Brussels, where he has lived for the past 16 years — highlights the hybrid nature of his playful work. sorted, resorted will comprise over 60 works, including new pieces produced for the occasion, revealing both the diversity of Kuri’s formal approach and the consistency of his underlying themes: notions of commercial and cultural value as well as material and its poetic (mis)use.

    From August 31 Simon Fujiwara's Joanne is on view for the first time in Denmark at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art.

     

    Presented as film and image environment, Joanne depicts the many faces of Joanne Salley, Simon Fujiwara’s former secondary school teacher. Winner of the 1998 Miss Northern Ireland beauty pageant, artist, teacher and champion boxer, Joanne Salley had a formative influence on Fujiwara as a scholarship student at the prestigious Harrow School for boys in Britain. Several years later, she became the victim of a tabloid newspaper scandal after students discovered and circulated topless photographs of her that had been taken privately. The ongoing media campaign that followed destroyed her career and public image. 

     

    In 2016, Fujiwara and Salley embarked on the production of a short film that aimed, through the use of advertising and marketing techniques, to restore her image.

    Simon Fujiwara has been nominated for the Preis der Nationalgalerie 2019 by an international jury. The museum prize is awarded every two years and pays tribute to artists under 40 who live and work in Germany. The four artists will be presented in a joint exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin from August 16, 2019 to February 16, 2020. All four artists show spatial ensembles in which they combine existing and new works. The tonality and handwriting of the four spatial work presentations is very different; what they have in common is an explicit reference to aspects of our contemporary European society.

    Opera as the World is a journey through the history of opera in the 20th and 21st centuries, and specifically its relations with the visual arts. Anything but a conventional reading of its subject and much more than a presentation of set designs by artists, it seeks to relate – either echoing or in opposition to the legacy of Wagner’s Gesamtkunstwerk – how the visual arts and opera have nurtured and, on occasion, radically influenced each other. From the experimental staging of the first avant-garde production to the works of contemporary artists such as Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Anri Sala, the exhibition maps interdisciplinarity from a different perspective.

    Upon entering the large-scale installation, visitors encounter a collection of identical plinths that would ordinarily be used to display art objects in a museum. In place of visible objects, each plinth is equipped with a speaker from which visitors can hear the word “thing” sung—edited out of and isolated from a range of pop songs. The result is a playful and thoughtful exploration of language, meaning, and the conventions of museum presentation and spectatorship.

    Standing on Top of a Building: Films 2008-2019 is the first retrospective dedicated exclusively to Liam Gillick’s film production. The exhibition, curated by Alberto Salvadori and Andrea Viliani, presents for the first time a selection of the most important videos and films made by the artist, in a setting specifically designed to integrate the vision of his works in the architecture of the museum. Each room will be marked by different but mutually connected works (posters, wall paintings and the soundtracks of the films that randomly switch among the galleries), outlining a real cognitive journey. A fully illustrated book documenting the films and the installation will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.

    As part of the Collateral Events of the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, Elsewhen has been produced in the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton “Hors-lesmurs” programme. This programme, inaugurated in 2014, showcases previously unseen holdings of the Collection in the Espaces Louis Vuitton in Tokyo, Munich, Beijing and Venice, thus realizing the Fondation’s commitment to mount international projects and make them accessible to a broader public.

     

    In Elsewhen, Philippe Parreno creates an experience where memory of the past comes together in a disruptive temporality. The familiar markers of perception are annihilated in favour of a stimulating process of inventing new ways of understanding, defying rational categories and the established order.

    The utopian is at the centre of the exhibition project by concept artist Karin Sander. There is a lot of unfulfilled future in the past, and visions of the future grow on the layers of the past. Together with sociologist Harald Welzer, the results of two surveys pointing both to the past and to the future will be presented and staged. In the process, scientific and artistic classifications cross over, taking on new and unexpected roles.

    Hito Steyerl’s new project for the Serpentine Galleries considers power and inequality in society, mapping unequal wealth distribution in the communities surrounding the Serpentine which has been recorded as one of the most socially uneven areas in Europe. Power Plants will see an augmented reality app designed to expand our social vision of some local communities to reveal what Steyerl calls Actual Reality, a series of guided neighbourhood ‘power walks’, and a new video installation created using artificial intelligence trained to predict the future. 

    Beginning with the premise that "power’" is the necessary condition for any digital technology’, Steyerl considers the multiple meanings of the word, including electrical currents, the ecological powers of plants or natural elements, and the complex networks of authority that shape our environments.

    Esther Schipper congratulates Tao Hui, shortlisted for the inaugural Sigg Prize. Established by M+ in Hong Kong, the prize recognizes outstanding artistic practice in the Greater China region.

    Tao Hui creates immersive video-installations that bend the boundaries of fiction and reality to address cultural and identity related issues. His works are visceral and provocative, yet enlightening and always imbued with a strong emotional power and a sense of displacement, inviting the viewers to confront themselves with their own cultural history, ways of living and social identities.

    An Opera for Animals, curated by Cosmin Costinas and Claire Shea, explores the way in which the future is now projected less as the rational thinking commonly remembered from the post-war era – advanced machinery, design, and social forms – but once more as a place of amorphous fear, of animals that might take over in artificial landscapes. The future it seems, will again be an opera for animals.

    Esther Schipper congratulates Simon Fujiwara, shortlisted for the 2019 Preis der Nationalgalerie.

     

    Established in 2000 by the Freunde der Nationalgalerie, the Preis is awarded biennially and promotes young, important positions in contemporary art that reflect the internationality and vitality of the art scene in Germany. The four shortlisted artists will present their work in a joint exhibition in fall 2019 at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin.

     

    Simon Fujiwara’s work takes multiple forms including theme park style rides, wax figures, robotic cameras, ‘make-up’ paintings and short films that address the complexity and contradictions of identity in a post-internet, hyper-capitalist world. Fujiwara often investigates themes of popular interest such as tourist attractions, famous icons, historic narratives and mass media imagery and has collaborated with the advertising and entertainment industries to produce his work in a process he describes as ‘hyper-engagement’ with dominant forms of cultural production. His work can be seen as a complex response to the human effects of image fetish, technology and social media on his generation.

    Daniel Steegmann Mangrané intends to totally and profoundly transform the space of the IAC. And so, the path of the exhibition, Ne voulais prendre ni forme, ni chair, ni matière, generates new vanishing lines. Defined by a sensitive geometry, driven only by rays of natural light that penetrate the gloom, it encourages exploration and groping and fumbling. 

    This path through the exhibition also translates the artist’s fascination for the notion of dissolution of the self in its surroundings. By placing all of these relationships in space, the artist provides us with a sharp and critical tool: “if there are no more subjects nor objects, then there are no longer spectators or works of art, but rather processes of relationships of mutual transformation. Combinations of agents which influence one another”.

    Through a new immersive installation, architectural interventions, a 16mm film and a virtual reality work, the Rio-based Catalan artist looks at how diverse mediums and technologies can represent aspects of the Mata Atlântica.

     

    Mata Atlântica, a rainforest stretching along the Atlantic coast of Brazil, is one of the most important biodiverse areas on Earth, yet is highly endangered, with only 7% of its original surface left. Steegmann Mangrané looks at how this complex environment has been subjected to conflicting pressures: economic, ecological, geographic, scientific, historical and territorial.

    On the occasion of Haus am Waldsee’s re-opening, the institution presents a comprehensive and site-specific solo exhibition by Karin Sander. Sander often works with the spatial and historical conditions of her exhibition venues. Not only does her upcoming exhibition at Haus am Waldsee document the evolution of her work since the early 1990s, but it also addresses its location, the building itself, which has been freshly renovated 73 years after its inauguration.

    Through various media (installations, projections, immersive environments, urban interventions, sculptures), Ann Veronica Janssens invites the viewer to cross into a new sensory space on the borderline of dizziness and dazzlement in the solo exhibition Contemporary Counterpoint

    In a register inspired by cognitive processes (perception, sensation, memory, representation), her works tend towards minimalism, emphasising the fleeting, ephemeral and fragile nature of the environments she invites us to enter.

    In her desire to create a dialogue with Monet’s work, the artist will create a specific luminous immersive environment for the exhibition Contemporary Counterpoint at the Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris.

    Tacet, from Latin tacere, is a playing instruction in music. If it appears in a score, the instrumentalist or singer is required to pause during the marked interval – to remain silent. 

    Absence, silence and the idiosyncratic power of imagination and memory are performed in the first institutional solo survey exhibition of the American artist and composer – Ari Benjamin Meyers – in Germany. In Meyers’ enactment, the visitor enters a staged situation rather than an exhibition space. She or he inevitably becomes part of the scenario invoked in Tacet. Meyers – who in his work explores, transgresses and shifts the boundaries between the disciplines of music and art – combines in the Kasseler Kunstverein aspects of immersive theater with questions of contemporary art and music. 

    The installation refers to a selection of performances by the artist, all of which are missing the corresponding characteristics of music, sound and movement. Two voices eventually break through the silence in Tacet: the voice of the peculiar archivist performed by art historian Jörn Schafaff, and that of the visitor her or himself.

    Esther Schipper congratulates Anri Sala and the architecture firm 51N4E, who have won the European Prize for Urban Public Space for their renovation of Skanderbeg Square in Sala's native Tirana, Albania. 

     

    Like no other public space, Skanderbeg Square, Tirana’s nerve centre and symbolic site for the whole country, reflects Albania’s complex, convulsive history. Finalised in 2017, the rennovation has turned Skanderbeg Square into a public space of more than ten hectares exclusively for the pedestrian use. In the centre of the square there is a clear esplanade of almost 40,000 square metres. Rather than being flat, the esplanade is shaped like a four-sided Roman pyramid with a slope of 2.5% and a height of two metres at its tip. A fountain at the top lets water trickle down the sides, thus bringing out the colours of the mosaic paving which is made from stones from all over Albania.

    Esther Schipper is pleased to announce the representation of Simon Fujiwara. Over the past decade, Fujiwara (born 1982 in London, lives and works in Berlin) has become known for his staging of large, complex exhibitions that explore the deeply rooted mechanisms of identity construction for both individuals and societies. Addressing the inherent contradictions of image and narrative making – from social media and self-presentation to marketing and history formation – Fujiwara revels in the complexity and paradox of our simultaneous quest for fantasy and authenticity. Crossing multiple media, from sculpture and installation to video and painting and mining worlds as diverse as advertising and archaeology, Fujiwara's works are a constant reportage on the real world sources from which they draw inspiration. However, rather than simply presenting commentary, the artist creates a unique universe of his own – one that is populated with challenging and often absurd new narratives that are as intellectually rigorous as they are emotionally stimulating.

    This special event will explore the work of two artists with a cutting edge, experimental practice: Analia Saban and Gabriel Kuri. The evening will begin with viewing of two short documentaries featuring each artist, created as part of the Artist Dialogues series, followed by a conversation among the artists and Rachel Rivenc.

     

    The movies and conversation will focus on the artists' material practice and how it relates to meaning, their approach to making and finding objects, their playful use or misuse of materials, as well as their thoughts on longevity, the future of their work, and the role of conservation.

    Museu Serralves, Serralves Auditorium, Porto October 26, 2017, 10pm–11:30pm www.serralves.pt
    Angela Bulloch & David Grubbs: The Wired Salutation
    The Wired Salutation results from a collaboration between Angela Bulloch and composer and musician David Grubbs.
     
    Bulloch sets into motion the process by which images and ideas degrade–decline, simplify–while expanding to encompass video, live performance, and a composition for theatre lighting, taking the audience on a trip inside the image.  David Grubbs stresses and strains an initially coherent piece of music until its constituent parts agree to peacefully disassemble.  The live musical component is undertaken by a group featuring Grubbs (electric guitar and voice) and Italian musicians Andrea Belfi (drums and electronics) and Stefano Pilia (electric guitar).

    Roman Ondak included in Sequences VIII: Elastic Hours

    We're pleased to announce Roman Ondak's participation in the eigth edition of Sequences.

     

    While Sequences uses the term “real time” to refer to time-based media, Sequences VIII: Elastic Hours considers how the term might be applied to the experience of art making, exploring how artists manipulate time as a raw material. Stretching, echoing, and inverting hours, the works included in Sequences VIII often go beyond standardized metrics such as clocks to investigate alternative systems for measuring and experiencing time.

    David Claerbout's work Die Reine Notwendigkeit/The Pure Necessity is included in this year's BFI London Film Festival.

     

    "A hypnotic and lyrical reworking of The Jungle Book, that removes its anthropomorphism and its human characters to give the animals back their dignity. The artist redrew all the animated animals and deconstructed the narrative arc to render it eventless, thus giving the impression of watching the animals in their natural surroundings and unaware of any human presence. The effect is one of rekindling a fond memory of childhood, but with the shades of commercial and cultural exploitation removed."

    Screening of David Claerbout's Die Reine Notwendigkeit/The Pure Necessity

    Film still: David Claerbout, Die Reine Notwendigkeit/The Pure Necessity, 2016

     

    Cinema Zuid in Antwerp will present an exclusive screening of David Claerbout's work Die Reine Notwendigkeit/The Pure Necessity, 2016.

     

    Die reine Notwendigkeit/The Pure Necessity is a color animated cartoon by David Claerbout, based on the classic 1967 animated adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book. The 60-minute-long film follows the tradition of the frame-by-frame animation, re-creating the historical characters with the most faithful precision. Claerbout's film focuses exclusively on the animals: Bagheera the panther, Baloo the bear, Kaa the snake, among others. Although the 1967 film depicted them as speaking animals, well-known for their witty dialogues, dances and jokes, they are here seen as “realistic” animals without any anthropomorphic characteristics. Claerbout represents them wandering in the jungle, drinking from a water spring, sleeping on tree branches, observing one another. Each of their movements is followed with precision and duration, giving the spectator the opportunity to observe every detail of the drawings. The title of Clearbout's work refers to the famous song, Bare Necessities, performed by Baloo in the 1967 film.

    Venice, Italy May 13 – November 26, 2017 www.labiennale.org

     

    The 57th International Art Exhibition, VIVA ARTE VIVA, will take place at the Giardini and the Arsenale in Venice, from May 13 to November 26, 2017. Curated by Christine Macel, it will feature 120 artists from 51 countries, including Liu Ye, Philippe Parreno, and Anri Sala.

     

    The exhibition will offer a route that unfolds over the course of nine chapters or families of artists, beginning with two introductory realms in the Central Pavilion, followed by another seven across the Arsenale through the Giardino delle Vergini. Each of the nine chapters or families of artists of the Exhibition will represent a Pavilion in itself, or rather a Trans-Pavilion as it is trans-national by nature but echoes the Biennale's historical organization into pavilions, the number of which has never ceased to grow since the end of the 1990s. From the "Pavilion of Artists and Books" to the "Pavilion of Time and Infinity", these nine episodes will tell a story that is often discursive and at times paradoxical, with detours that mirror the world's complexities, a multiplicity of approaches and a wide variety of practices.

    Kunsthalle for Music and its Artistic Director Ari Benjamin Meyers continue the unfolding of Kunsthalle for Music by addressing fundamental questions through a symposium of multiple modes: lectures, auditions, open workshops, and performances.

     

    The two-day symposium at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam will feature international practitioners from the fields of contemporary art, music, and theory. As part of the symposium, Witte de With will host a casting of the Kunsthalle for Music's future ensemble, which will invite selected performers to collaborate with composers towards the creation of music and performance works.

     

    The program was conceived by Ari Benjamin Meyers, Armen Avanessian, and Witte de With's Defne Ayas, Samuel Salemakers, and Rosa de Graaf.

Presented as a constellation, Rondinone marries elements he has used in the past to “bring all those groups together in a colorful symphony.”

    Ryan Gander's solo exhibition These wings aren't for flying (April 29 – July 2, 2017) will present approximately 60 new works at the National Museum of Art, Osaka.
