    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.

    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.

    This summer, Hito Steyerl reveals her most recent installation in the U.S. to date, commissioned by the Armory and curated by Park Avenue Armory’s visual arts curator Tom Eccles. ⠀

     

    Steyerl utilizes both the Wade Thompson Drill Hall and historic interiors of the building in mounting both pre-existing works as well as new projects commissioned by the Armory in her ongoing illumination of the world’s power structures, inequalities, obscurities, and delights. When viewed collectively, this material allows the viewer to zoom in on and out from some of the most complex and pressing issues of our time.⠀

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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."

From 1 August to 14 September 2017, the New Tretyakov Gallery and Schusev State Museum of Architecture will host works by the internationally renowned artist, who de es art as material production and constructs immersive situations that reinvent the traditional museum environment. This will be the first large-scale appearance of Sehgal’s work in Russia and parallel to the exhibition, an educational programme exploring the exhibition themes will run at the New Tretyakov Gallery and the Solyanka State Gallery.

    We congratulate Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Tino Sehgal for their inclusion in the upcoming FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art.

     

    FRONT's first edition, titled An American City: Eleven Cultural Exercises, will run from July 14, 2018 through September 30, 2018. Conceived by FRONT’s Artistic Directors Michelle Grabner and Jens Hoffmann, this multipart presentation of interconnected “cultural exercises” will investigate the significance and meaning of staging a large-scale international triennial in the contemporary context. Bringing together more than 55 local, national and international artists across mediums and disciplines, FRONT will partner with sites throughout the city of Cleveland and beyond to explore artistic collaborations, intellectual exchanges and curatorial dialogues connecting the city and the Great Lakes region to broader global, political and economic networks. FRONT’s ambitious program will weave critical approaches to museum exhibitions, public and educational programs, residencies, publications and research strategies in a complex presentation.

  • Viva Arte Viva: The 57th Venice Biennale, with Liu Ye, Philippe Parreno, Anri Sala

    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.

    Starting May 6, 2017, CAC–Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati will present let's start this day again, a solo exhibition by Ugo Rondinone. This hypnotic installation will be carefully layered in groups that include a neon rainbow, colored gels on the windows, floating mandalas, blurred target paintings, painted windows, gradient color walls and a surreal cast of life-size, clown sculptures. 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. At the same time, Gander will curate an exhibit made up of works from the museum collection. Using the human tendency to think in comparisons as a premise, Gander will present the works in numerous pairs. Though the pairings will be based on a physical resemblance, they will be derived from different genres and eras.
