Maureen Paley is pleased to announce a solo presentation of new work by Anne Hardy. This will be her third exhibition at the gallery. Following on from her recent solo exhibition at the Secession in Vienna, Anne Hardy will present three photographs, Notations, Script and Shelf. In the upstairs space she will build a structure of two interconnected rooms. This is a sculptural continuation that has grown out of her recent residency at the Camden Arts Centre. It is the first time she allows the viewer to enter an actual space of her making. In the past these were created solely to be photographed and were always destroyed afterwards. Breaking away from this former process allows her to expand her working methods and has given her a new dimension to explore within this exhibition. The space was created one month prior to this exhibition opening and has slowly taken shape during that time period.

Maureen Paley is pleased to announce the first solo presentation by Morgan Fisher at the gallery. His film ( ) will be projected for four days in the second of two screening weeks the gallery has organised this year. The film will be on show continually on each day of the screening during gallery opening hours from 11am – 6pm. 4 – 7 April 2013 Private view Thursday 4 April, 6.30 – 8.30 pm Morgan Fisher will be available for informal conversation Saturday 6 April, 4pm – 6pm Morgan Fisher reflects on ( ) ( ) benefits from multiple viewings. The film is unusual in that its construction makes it very difficult to remember, a fact that repeated viewings will make clear. A second viewing of the film will almost certainly accord only somewhat with the viewer’s memory of the first, and the same will be the case for the relation between the second viewing and the third.

Opening Mar 10, 2013 at 11:00 am
Start date Mar 12, 2013
End date May 26, 2013

Franz Gertsch (born 1930) belongs amongst Switzerland’s most important contemporary artists. He achieved international fame with, partly oversize, fotorealistic paintings and woodcuts. The exhibition at Museum Sinclair-Haus displays a representative selection (around 70 works) of his woodcuts dating from 1986 to 2008. Gertsch organically developed his landscape images from the portraits, as all of nature’s shape-generation exhibits common structures. This development is considered in the exhibition, with each of the earliest and the youngest woodcut showing portraits. Via photographic templates the landscapes are taken directly from the real environment, and through their implementation they acquire an immaterial air that transforms their image into an atmospheric field of colour. Behind a permeable screen of monochrome colour the woodcuts’ subjects continuously appear as if detached from this earth. Franz Gertsch’s Woodcuts are marked by a prolonged process of creation. Thus time is of equal importance as subject and colour as one of the three crucial components of his work.
This exhibition, devised in cooperation with Franz Gertsch, documents the essence of his work in a concentrated selection of works.

In Light of the Infinite

Romanticism and the Present
Opening Dec 16, 2012 at 07:00 pm
Start date Dec 16, 2012
End date Feb 24, 2013

The exhibition “In Light of the Infinite – Romanticism and the Present” explores aspects of Romanticism in contemporary art. In diverse artistic positions, including photographs, installations and videos by artists ranging from Marina Abramovic to José Maria Mellado and Bill Viola, the exhibition will explore contemporary artists’ romantic view of the world, people and art. According to a definition provided by Charles Baudelaire in 1848, “Anyone talking about Romanticism is talking about modern art, i.e. the intimacy, the spirituality, the colour and the search for the infinite - expressed through all of the means available to art”. Although the forms and images, as well as the means and the possibilities, have changed considerably, the desire to create art that can change the world is still just as much alive today as is the desire to personally experience becoming one with nature in an attempt to counterbalance the material world with something transcendental, the functional with something mysterious and the banal with something meaningful.

Ironisch, provokant, witzig – seit seinen Anfängen im New Yorker East Village der frühen 1980er-Jahre hat der US-amerikanische Künstler George Condo ein unverwechselbares Œuvre geschaffen. Seine von beißendem Humor, surrealistisch anmutender Absurdität und überbordendem Pathos gekennzeichnete Malerei nimmt – von Velázquez über Picasso bis Gorky – immer wieder Bezug zu den Traditionen der amerikanischen und europäischen Kunstgeschichte der letzten 500 Jahre. In Zusammenarbeit mit der Londoner Hayward Gallery präsentiert die SCHIRN eine umfassende Retrospektive des Künstlers, dessen Stil sich als künstlicher Realismus beschreiben lässt. Seine Gemälde wie seine Skulpturen legen die anhaltende Auseinandersetzung des Künstlers mit der menschlichen Physiognomie und allzu menschlichen Geisteszuständen offen. Neben 66 bedeutenden Gemälden aus unterschiedlichen Schaffensperioden zeigt die Schirn in thematisch und stilistisch geordneten Gruppen zudem eine Auswahl von etwa zehn Skulpturen sowie neue Arbeiten George Condos.
