I Don’t Know. The Weave of Textile Language
Opening Oct 14, 2014 at 06:00 pm
Start date Oct 14, 2014
End date Dec 14, 2014

This major exhibition surveying Richard Tuttle’s career from the 1960s to today. He is renowned for being one of the first artists to make the radical gesture of taking the canvas off the stretcher and hanging it directly on the wall in works such as 'Purple Octagonal' (1967), as well as making provocative sculptures such as 'Third Rope Piece' (1974), the intimate scale of which directly responds to traditional ideas of monumental art. Showcasing works selected in close dialogue with the artist the exhibition centers on his use of fiber, thread and textile and offers a fascinating introduction to Tuttle’s influential body of work. The exhibition will include 'Looking for the Map 8', (2013-14), a new work shown in the UK for the first time on display alongside works made in situ by the artist such as the re-making of the key sculpture 'Ten Kinds of Memory and Memory Itself' (1972) as well as international loans from museums and private collections. Alongside this exhibition, Tate Modern will present a newly commissioned sculpture in its iconic Turbine Hall from 14 October 2014 to 6 April 2015. Principally constructed of fabric, it will be the largest work ever created by the artist, measuring over 12 m in height. A new book is part of this project, drawing on Tuttle’s knowledge as a longstanding collector of textiles from around the world. It includes contributions by the artist, by Magnus af Petersens, Whitechapel Gallery, and Achim Borchardt-Hume, Tate Modern.

Maureen Paley is pleased to present the sixth solo exhibition by Gillian Wearing at the gallery. Her new single-screen video work 'We Are Here' sees the artist return to the area in and around Sandwell where she grew up. In the video people from the West Midlands present a series of monologues, speaking as if they have returned from the grave. The concept for 'We Are Here' is taken from American poet Edgar Lee Masters' book Spoon River Anthology (1915). In this book people who lived by Spoon River (that ran close to the poet's hometown) rise up from the grave and talk about their lives, regrets, losses and memories. 'We Are Here' received it’s UK premier in Gillian Wearing’s solo exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall. The exhibition opened on 17 July and runs until 12 October 2014. Regen Projects, Los Angeles will host the US premiere of the film in a solo Show, 11.12.2014 - 24.012015. 'We Are Here' was made with the assistance of Outset Contemporary Art Fund and the Art Fund with additional support from the artist, Maureen Paley, Shaun Regen and Tanya Bonakdar. Gillian Wearing has been nominated for The Vincent Award 2014 along with Pierre Huyghe, Manfred Pernice, Willem de Rooij and Anri Sala. The Vincent Award is currently on show at The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, The Hague, Netherlands, 05.09. 2014 to 01.02.2015. Wearing’s public sculpture A Real Birmingham Family will be unveiled in Centenary Square, Birmingham, on October 30, 2014.

ZERO

Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s
Opening Oct 10, 2014 at 06:00 pm
Start date Oct 11, 2014
End date Jan 07, 2015

The exhibition is the first large-scale survey in a United States museum dedicated to the history of the experimental German artists’ group Zero (1957–66) and ZERO, an international network of artists that shared the group’s aspiration to redefine and transform art in the aftermath of World War II. The exhibition features work by the three core members of Group Zero—Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, and Günther Uecker—and by more than 30 artists from 10 countries who comprised the larger ZERO network, including Lucio Fontana, Yayoi Kusama, Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Jesús Rafael Soto, Jean Tinguely, and herman de vries. These artists found common cause in the desire to use novel materials drawn from everyday life, nature, and technology and to develop innovative techniques and formats such as room-scaled installations, kinetic artworks, and live art actions. Focusing on the points of intersection, exchange, and collaboration that define the ZERO artists’ shared history, the exhibition is at once a snapshot of a specific group and a portrait of a generation. ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s celebrates the pioneering nature of ZERO art and the transnational vision advanced by this network of artists during a pivotal decade. A fully illustrated 244-page catalogue accompanies ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s. Available at the museum shop and online at guggenheimstore.org and distributed in the United States through ARTBOOK | D.A.P.

Opening Oct 09, 2014 at 07:00 pm
Start date Oct 10, 2014
End date Mar 01, 2015

The theme of The Sea is as immense as the sea itself. It is not, however, a motif that has attracted very many visual artists. Landscapes have been the preferred motif by far. Denmark has been and is still considered a sea-faring nation. The entire country borders on sea or fjords. The Vikings ventured into the world on expeditions of conquest, and later we gradually acquired a navy as well as a merchant fleet. Today Denmark builds some of the largest container ships in the world, and in certain parts of the country, sections of the population still make a living by fishing. In The Sea we will focus on a few subordinate themes offering different tales of our relationship to the powerful sea, historically as well as from a contemporary angle. The exhibition will start off with a selection of sea battles such as C. A. Lorentzen’s dramatic painting, “The Battle of Copenhagen”, and C. W. Eckerberg’s beautiful seascapes. These will be followed by photographs by the Frenchman Gustave Le Gray, who, as early as the 1850s, took pictures of the sea breaking, as did his American colleague Thomas Joshua Cooper a hundred years later. A special part of the exhibition will be dedicated to the highly dramatic aspects of the mighty forces of nature and man’s fascination with them.

Late Harvest

Opening Sep 27, 2014 at 11:00 am
Start date Sep 27, 2014
End date Jan 18, 2015

The exhibition "Late Harvest" explores the human relationship with the wild world. The exhibition juxtaposes traditional wildlife painting with contemporary art using taxidermy and features almost 90 works by 37 artists. Canonical wildlife paintings from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are juxtaposed with contemporary art that incorporates taxidermy. The energy resulting from this contrast encourages dialogue regarding human-animal relationships. What the range of artistic strategies have in common is a celebration of the beauty of animals. Each approach reflects the desire to rejoin our simpler and more honest animal natures and to live in harmony with the natural world. Both modes of expression assert the importance of our encounters with animals as a way of understanding our place in the world. All of these artistic practices reflect human fascination with animals, an interest that spans millennia. The contemporary art in "Late Harvest" is rife with tensions that arise because these artists use taxidermy (Lit.: Rachel Poliquin) in an unexpected manner. Using taxidermy as a contemporary art material makes it neither utilitarian nor decorative, and the taxidermy itself becomes divorced from the didactic and scientific classification systems of natural history museums. Contemporary artists raise questions and challenge traditional notions about the hierarchical relationships between humans and animals. Catalog by Hirmer Verlag, ISBN: 978-3-7774-2350-0

Opening Sep 11, 2014 at 07:00 am
Start date Sep 12, 2014
End date Jan 18, 2015

Subodh Gupta attained international fame with his large-scale installations of shiny stainless steel vessels and his sculptures consisting of countless worn-out dishes and other items of everyday use in India. The MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst is now staging the artist’s most extensive solo presentation in Europe to date with sculptures, paintings, videos and performative works from all phases of his career. Gupta has moreover developed two large installations and a performative work especially for the show at the MMK. The survey builds on a retrospective presented last year at the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi. Subodh Gupta’s works mirror the current situation in India – a society shaped in good part by the major transformation processes brought about by the rapid economic upswing of the past decades. At the same time, daily life in India is still determined as strongly as ever by traditional values, spirituality and religious belief. Gupta explores these various developments with the aid of supposedly banal everyday objects. Yet the materials he uses for his works not only bear a relation to sociopolitical aspects but are also deeply linked to his personal biography. A catalogue will be available in English, edited by Aveek Seen and Susanne Gaensheimer. With contributions by Germano Celant, Bharti Kher, Sunil Khilnani, Raqs Media Collective and Aveek Seen, published by Penguin Books India.

Karl Otto Götz

Opening Sep 10, 2014 at 06:30 pm
Start date Sep 11, 2014
End date Nov 08, 2014

A poet – that's Karl Otto Götz (* 1914) through and through: As the author of the numerous poems accompanying his life, and all the more so as a painter with a noteworthy ability to capture his poetic contemplations on canvas. In 1948, Götz became the only German to join the art group CoBrA – verbally as well as visually – and participated in the group's significant exhibitions in Amsterdam and Liège. Initially inspired by the techniques of the Surrealist, by the early 1950s Götz's experimental approaches led him to the nascent Informel movement of post-war Germany. Götz became its leading figure, and is still regarded today as one of its most significant representatives. Following meticulous analysis and careful preparatory work, in an innovative technique of his own involving paintbrush, squeegee and a systematic process he brings the paint to the canvas in a manner that purposefully negates classical principles of form. The resultant, strongly expressive and gestural compositions oscillate in a realm between happenstance and methodology. The artist, who turned 100 this year, can look back upon an eventful life, a complex and multi-faceted artistic oeuvre, and a sustained 60 years of influence on the West German art scene. DIE GALERIE is presenting a comprehensive retrospective of the truly exceptional artist. A comprehensive catalog is available, edited by DIE GALERIE, 120 pages, with texts (German/English) by Prof. Rissa, Els Ottenhof, Dr. Franz Mon, and Ina Ströher.

Identical twin brothers Gert & Uwe Tobias were born in Brasov, Romania, in 1973, in the Transylvanian region. Having moved to Germany in 1985 they studied in Brunswick, and now live and work in a studio complex on the outskirts of Cologne. They paint, sculpt, make traditional woodcuts and collages. They have worked together since 2001 and when in their studio the artists often complete each other’s work. Their work is full of strange characters and creatures drawn from eastern European folk art combined with diverse influences, from abstract art of the early 20th century to German post-war painting. The Tobias brothers’ giant woodcuts and wall paintings draw on modernist geometric abstraction; however they combine line, shape, colour and typography with the narrative images and patterns of folk art, using decorative motifs such as flowers, plants, patterns, embroidery and domestic objects. These elements are often placed against a grid or flat painted background to create dramatic and surreal tableaux. There is much reference and quotation in their work from the rich Surrealist period, William Blake, along with symbolist allusion - all connected through their Romanian folk tradition. However, the bold and geometric presentation they employ creates a contemporary context that is unique to them.
