Leslie Sacks Contemporary is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles artist Alex Weinstein. This new body of work by Alex Weinstein is executed on wood panels with deep beveled edges. The presence of the bevel invokes the illusion of the oil paintings floating off the wall, as a kind of reverse window or visual cut-out of the architecture. Weinstein´s process embraces traditional painting. The seemingly ambiguous and quietly tonal paintings come from extensive and rich building of color. The spectrum of the under-painted palette is revealed in the transitioning ambient light. Weinstein has long since employed the subject of the ocean as the vehicle through which he explores broader principles of interest. The works inevitably transcend the conventional depiction of the ocean and establish a new dialogue about painting. Alex Weinstein´s paintings are a successful endeavor in bringing together on one picture plane the concepts of minimalism/objecthood, abstraction, and representation. The confluence of these three principles in a singular field presents both opposing and synonymous ideas and challenges the notion of what a painting can be. Working in both a rich additive and subtle reductive manner, Weinstein executes enigmatic paintings, which are all at once minimal objects, planes of abstraction and vague representation.

Ernst Scheidegger, born 1923 in Rorschach, Switzerland, was an associate of the prestigious ’Magnum’ photography agency, and an editor at the Swiss newspaper ´Neue Zürcher Zeitung´. He was a friend of Alberto Giacometti, the now internationally known sculptor and painter, for more than twenty years until his death. A number of photographs are the result of this friendship from the beginning in Stampa, the home of the Giacometti family in Switzerland, and the modest studio of Giacometti in Paris (France). Scheidegger has documented both Giacometti´s personality and work, and has published both of them in numerous catalogues and movies, for galleries as well as in books of his own publishing firm. In addition, the screen author Scheidegger produced an internationally known documentary movie about Giacometti´s life from the 50th until he died. In 2001, Scheidegger was honoured as an ´Officier de l´Ordre des Arts and Lettres´ by the French Ministry of Culture. The exhibition is part of 2013 www.wiesbadener-fototage.de

Corinna Rosteck born 1968, portrays in her scenic photographs the well known Butohdancer Aya Irizuki with an exceptional emphasis on the expressive japanese dance in the industrial atmosphere of MUMA, a huge former Berlin energy storage power station. The empty halls serve as an impressive background for the choregraphy of light and shadow, and the rhythm between the columns turns into a sculptural staging. The gestures and arabesques of the dancing body of Aya Irizuki invoke the unusual halls; a rhythm that dissipates, recovers and scrutinizes between the columns. The exhibition is part of 2013 www.wiesbadener-fototage.de

Chéri Samba is born in 1956 in Kinto M´Vuila (DRC) as the elder son of a family of ten children. His father was a blacksmith and his mother a farmer. In 1972, at the age of 16, he left the village and the school to find work as a sign painter in the capital Kinshasa, on Kasa Vubu Avenue. From this circle of artists (which included Moke, Bodo, and later Samba´s younger brother Cheik Ledy among others) arose one of the most vibrant schools of popular painting in the twentieth century. In 1975 he opened his own studio. At the same time he also became an illustrator for the entertainment magazine Bilenge Info. It is at this time when he develops his signature style of combining paintings with text. His work earns him some local fame. In the early 1980s he began signing his paintings “Chéri Samba: Artiste Populaire”. Indeed, the popularity of his paintings soon went beyond Kinshasa´s city limits; by the mid 1980s his work was gaining an international audience. His breakthrough was the exhibition Les Magiciens de la Terre (curator: Jean-Hubert Martin) at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris in 1989, which made him known internationally. Followed the Pompidou Center(Africa Remix), Fondation Cartier, Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, The Venice Biennale, Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf, National Museum of African Art in Washington DC, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Provincial Museum Voor Moderne Kunst in Ostende, ….

Retrospective 1937 - 1972

Start date Sep 05, 2013
End date Nov 09, 2013

The Danish painter and art theorizer Asger Jorn (1914-1973) is considered one of the key figures of Avant-Garde of post-war Europe. The retrospective exhibition at DIE GALERIE units approximately 50 objects, paintings, works on paper, sculptures and ceramics, thus illustrating all important creative periods from 1937 to 1972 in the life of the Danish artist. Due to its range of important periods and selection of different kind of artwork the retrospective solo show of Asger Jorn at DIE GALERIE is the by far the most outstanding of its kind. His early work of the 1930s still displays the influence of Fernand Léger, Yves Tanguy, Paul Klee, Joan Miró and Max Ernst. His concepts of an art contrary to all norms and conventions made him a leading pioneer among the new generation of artists. Asger Jorn was a decisive influence on the art and appearance of the artist group CoBrA, which he founded in 1948 together with Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille, Christian Dotremont and Joseph Noiret. Jorn's influence, as well as his questioning of artistic originality and his demand for the elimination of borders between high and low art, has left its mark on everything from Art Informel and Abstract Expressionism through Post-Modern Art.

The social and cultural conflict in China’s Islamic region is a shaded theme. Once as a young artist living in Urumqi, Wang Ling rethought and realized the contemporary Islamic culture in Xinjiang on the other side. In the series paintings "Gobi Spring", Wang Ling made a systems analysis and in-depth study on the characteristics of Islamic patterns and shapes, which commonly can be seen curved in the wall of Mosques or public buildings. In his view, the pictures transmitted Islamic culture’s self-enclosed, exclusive, aggressive temperament, in history, when this kind of complexity met out-strangers, it often exhibited with violent conflict and discomfort. The "Night-Walking" is an art performance under the background of Urumqi 7•5 Event. As a young Han, Wang Ling had ever personally experienced that riots, his spiritual world suffered severe contusion. In the deep winter 2010, he returned to the city, holding a burning candle, walking in those scarred streets. He, in the Quran words and historical shadows, was trying to find a spiritual exit transcending the racial barriers. Wang Ling's many works, implies a silent and powerful forces of darkness. He often let the fire become the protagonist of historical narrative, interwoven and reborn with the darkness. Syrian poet Adonis wrote that "fire has its own writing, but eventually reduced to ashes." as if, all the incomplete combustion of things became a certain solo proof, after those matters went in silence.

Opening speech by curator and author Jan Hoet, Gent. The restlessness, the rawness, the mysteriousness of his works are based on a field of appealing disharmony that captures one´s attention, keeps one searching and sensing. The beauty of these images is not to be found on the surface but rather in the depth of the artistic methodology. The British painter, composer, musician, poet, performance and video artist Chris Newman (*1958) has been living in Berlin since 1996 and now has his first solo exhibition at Alexander Ochs Galleries. To find the beauty in Chris Newman´s paintings, one does not need to know the background of his work. It is even less required to identify any potential remnants of narratives. It is a sense of body, a genuine unconscious and the dismissal of rational control that makes Newman´s works so lively and filled with deeper beauty.

End date Aug 25, 2013

Maureen Paley is pleased to present a new exhibition of work by Hamish Fulton, his second at the gallery. In 1973, after walking over 1000 miles in 47 days from Duncansby Head to Land´s End, Fulton made the decision to "only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks." Since then walking has formed the basis of his practice, materializing in photographs and walk-texts in various forms that result from direct engagement with the environment. Calls for political justice recur in Fulton´s work, corresponding to his commitment to individual and artistic freedom. As Fulton has stated: "A diversity of art walks can interconnect with a wide range of actions, disciplines, philosophies, environmental issues, the meditative, and politics." For the past twenty years Fulton has been devising group walks with over thirty walks realised transnationally. In 2011 Fulton undertook Slowalk (In support of Ai Weiwei) a collective action realised at Tate Modern bringing together hundreds of people walking in silent unison.
