What the works on display have in common is that they manage with little. They are part of the long tradition of European Minimalism, which had its beginnings in ancient Laconia, where the Spartans prided themselves on saying anything important in just a few words – in contrast to the flowery manner of speaking their oriental neighbors preferred. Hence the expression 'laconic'. One associates little with poverty, as well as with thriftiness – as a conscious economic stance emancipated from deficiency, which in the field of art and culture becomes an aesthetic strategy related to asceticism. The aim behind this approach is to achieve the best with the least means. The lowest possible consumption of space, time, material, energy and labor, thriftiness characterizes the early bourgeois perspective on production, in contrast to feudalistic waste. Its purpose was the magnificent presentation of wealth as social strength. To this day the strategy of emotional overpowering based on abundance so typical of Baroque is recognizable in the extensive spatial installations of many artists. Only when the excessive spread of capitalist accumulation and the consumerism that goes with it, personalized by a voracity for more and more, has penetrated all areas of life, can a limitation to just a little become an alternative. And indeed even have a subversive impact – as – self-assertive – abstinence. Burkhard Brunn

Start date Jan 09, 2015
End date Feb 15, 2015

INVISIBLE-EXPORTS is proud to present Fetching Blemish, a group exhibition of portraiture and figurative work addressing human flaws as sites of revelation and distinction. The show revels in flaws, deformities and the grotesque, rendering or expressing internal conflicts and anxieties as physical features, and approaching imperfection as a portal of identity and self-horror as a form of selfrecognition (or liberating and even transcendent performance). This all in a cultural moment, or perhaps its immediate aftermath, in painting and otherwise, enamored with style and seductiveness as an uncomplicated bid for recognition of the most satisfyingly charged kind. That is, to the extent it is enamored with figurative work at all. Each of the artists in this show are in some ways, or understand themselves to be, outsiders, some of them stiff-arming and others processing and repurposing a harsh critical gaze. All seem engaged in overturning tendencies, preferences, and prejudices in recent portraiture as showcase of beauty, as refracted vanity, even as pin-up.

LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD

Materiality in Contemporary Art
Opening Dec 05, 2014 at 07:00 pm
Start date Dec 06, 2014
End date Feb 15, 2015

What material does an artist select, and for what reasons? The international group exhibition Living in the Material World examines the role of materials in contemporary art. It brings together important positions in contemporary art including - in Theaster Gates - a participant at dOCUMENTA (13) 2012 in Kassel, and contributors to the two most recent Venice Biennales in Lara Almarcegui, Karla Black, Jessica Jackson Hutchins and Oscar Tuazon. The twelve artists invited to participate here focus on the characteristics and narrative potential of such diverse materials as fabric, concrete, wood, ceramics, glass, plastic or paper. While it was still important during the 1960s to assimilate random materials once considered alien to art into fine art at all, and so to oppose traditional material hierarchies and art-historical conventions, today the use of such an artistic repertoire is no longer a trigger of outrage. The materials being used here are familiar – in the exhibition space as well. The artistic focus is less on the discovery of new materials and more on a re-dedication of the familiar, giving it a novel function.

Maureen Paley is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by Morgan Fisher following on from his screening at the gallery in 2013. "My father taught me photography in 1955, when I was twelve years old. I made my first movies (they were conventional home movies) with a Brownie 8mm camera in 1956. I believed that photography and film as I found them in the 1950s would last forever. All of the works in this exhibition were made as photographs or films. I didn’t do this to sustain my belief, it was the way I wanted to do things, and they were easy and normal things to do. But in treating some of the works after their original production I have chosen to work digitally because it is simpler." Morgan Fisher, October 2014 Morgan Fisher was born in 1942 in Washington, D.C. He studied art history at Harvard College and then film in Los Angeles. He lives and works in Santa Monica, California.

Works from the MMK Collection
Opening Oct 18, 2014 at 07:00 pm
Start date Oct 19, 2014
End date Jun 14, 2015

The first exhibition at the MMK 2 – "Boom She Boom: Works from the MMK Collection" is devoted to women artists in the MMK collection. Among Germany’s contemporary art museums, the MMK is unique in that, from its founding in 1991 to the present, it has directed special attention to the strong contributions of women artists of the past decades. A survey of the purchases made over the past years strikingly mirrors the fact that women artists account for a very large number of the MMK collection’s recent acquisitions. Major works by Vanessa Beecroft, Rineke Dijkstra, Teresa Margolles, Sarah Morris, Taryn Simon and others mark significant expansions of the collection, which more recently has been enhanced with workgroups by women presently in the limelight of the international art world, for example Andrea Büttner, Jewyo Rhij, Dayanita Singh and Dolores Zinny. From the beginning, the MMK has also devoted itself to the Frankfurt art scene, and here as well the museum’s holdings are enriched by such individualist and radical perspectives as that of Anne Imhof, Franziska Kneidl and Adrian Williams. The exhibition title “Boom She Boom” quotes the sensationally successful doo-wop song of 1954 by the Chords, which has undergone many reinterpretations since that time.

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.

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.
