Tao Hui shortlisted for the inaugural Sigg Prize
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.
The six shortlisted artists will be invited to present works from the past two years in the Sigg Prize exhibition, which will be held at the M+ Pavilion, West Kowloon Cultural District, from December 6, 2019 – April 13, 2020. The winner will be announced in January 2020.
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.

Simon Fujiwara shortlisted for the 2019 Preis der Nationalgalerie
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.

Anri Sala and N1N4E win the European Prize for Urban Public SpaceJune 19, 2018
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.

Angela Bulloch & David Grubbs: The Wired SalutationMuseu Serralves, Serralves Auditorium, Porto October 26, 2017, 10pm–11:30pm www.serralves.ptThe 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).Find more about this event here

Roman Ondak included in Sequences VIII: Elastic HoursThe Living Art Museum, Reykjavik October 6–15, 2017 www.sequences.is
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 at BFI London Film Festival 2017BFI Southbank, NFT3 London October 14, 2017 at 9:20pm www.bfi.org.uk
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 NecessityCinema Zuid, Antwerp August 5, 2017 at 7 PM www.cinemazuid.be
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.
Viva Arte Viva: The 57th Venice Biennale, with Liu Ye, Philippe Parreno, Anri SalaVenice, 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.
