Late Harvest

Opening Sep 27, 2014 at 11:00 am
Start date Sep 27, 2014
End date Jan 28, 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

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

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.

"We live in a state of constant flux and communication, yet this hyper-connectivity somehow feels more disconnected than times when we had less options and ways to communicate. I see a lot of people making artwork out of this place - disconnected objects, fragmentations, deconstructions - but without the actual answer or response or cure or even recognition of this feeling. The artworks are considered 'progressive' but are themselves disconnected and fragmented, without any real acknowledgment of that fact. So even though they may be a 'sign of the times', they also just tend to blend blandly with the background becoming sterile purposeless objects. For Ambulance Blues, I wanted to include works that went beyond this idea of progressive. The artists included understand what it means to create a relic of a difficult world in flux with the desire to refocus our attention to something better. There is a real sadness and loneliness in recognizing this disconnected feeling and the works here evoke this. Even further, the works exhibit continuous movement beyond this by reaching towards something sublime. Good art is about knowing and feeling that you live in a fucked up world but still being able to pull out the good human parts and point towards them."

Maureen Paley is pleased to present the third solo exhibition by Peter Hujar at the gallery. In her introduction to Portraits in Life and Death, Susan Sontag wrote, ‘…Fleshed and moist-eyed friends and acquaintances stand, sit, slouch, mostly lie – and are made to appear to meditate on their own mortality…Peter Hujar knows that portraits in life are always, also, portraits in death.’ Working exclusively in black and white, Hujar vividly documented a New York that has been all but lost to us today. Hujar was a contemporary and friend of Diane Arbus, and both were admirers of Weegee and shared his dark vision. Regardless of subject matter—from the catacombs in Palermo to abandoned, wrecked cars Hujar is a classicist whose distinctive style echoes further back to historical figures such as Atget and Brassaï. Hujar was a mentor and friend to the artists David Wojnarowicz and Paul Thek. His work would go on to influence the photographers Nan Goldin and Robert Mapplethorpe. His sensibility, concentration, eye for detail, and feel for light and texture enable him to find mystery where none is apparent, beauty in the mundane, and grace in disintegration. All of Hujar's work is imbued with a deep sense of mortality and as he makes visible an awareness of life and death as forever enmeshed, a depth of soul. Born in Trenton, New Jersey in 1934, Peter Hujar received his first camera in 1947. His works have been exhibited throughout Europe and the United States.

Die KUNSTHALLE ERFURT präsentiert eine Doppelschau von Julian Röder und Robert Capa im Rahmen von CC - Classic Contemporary. Den inhaltlichen Ansatz der Ausstellung von Capa und Röder bilden sozial-politische Transformationsprozesse und besonders "Konflikt und Krieg" als deren Katalysatoren oder Folgen. Die Erfurter Doppelausstellung ist gleichzeitig die erste größere Werkschau des jungen Künstlers (geb. 1981 in Erfurt). Auch Magnum-Mitbegründer und Fotolegende Robert Capa (1913–1954) hat sich für die politischen und militärischen Auseinandersetzungen seiner Mitmenschen interessiert. As part of its photo exhibition series CC – Classic Contemporary, KUNSTHALLE ERFURT presents a two-person exhibition of works by Julian Röder (*1981) and Robert Capa (1913–1954). Both photographers focus on such themes as “socio-political processes of change” in which “conflict and war” serve as the catalysts or consequences of these processes. Like Capa, Julian Röder is not only fascinated with the (potential) violence or military engagement, but rather the tensions of human interaction and co-existence which precede these. As part of its CC – Classic Contemporary series at KUNSTHALLE ERFURT, this two-person exhibition includes almost all of Julian Röder’s past photo series.

Goeun Museum of Photography introduces contemporary German photography that has had strong influence around the world. German photography that received spotlight with August Sander was split into two streams since 1960s. First was the school of typological photography centering on Art Academy of Dusseldorf led by Bernd and Hilla Becher as well as their students that include Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, and Andrea Gursky. The tradition of subjective photography forms the other pillar of German photography, with Otto Steinert playing the key role. Interestingly enough, subjective photography is the exact opposite of typological photography in terms of contents and format. While typological photography shows interest in similarities over differences, subjective photography notices the potential created by the differences. Images to be shown are from Claudia Fährenkemper's most recent series that captures armors from museums in various aspects and series. Both series are in black and white, beautifully and vividly exposing the nature of subjects using intensive tones and distinctive gradations. At a glance typological photography influence may have strong presence in her work but look closer and you will discover ways of describing the subject that are unique to this artist alone. It is so as she chooses the backgrounds in different tones depending on the texture of the armor and reveals various shades of black and white accordingly. MiJung Lee, Curator

Wit–Rood–Zwart is een bijzondere groepstentoonstelling van vier belangrijke aan Zero gerelateerde kunstenaars: Leo Erb, Bernard Aubertin, Henk Peeters en Jan Schoonhoven. Zij vertegenwoordigen drie kleurrealiteiten, die symbool staan voor materie (zwart), geest (wit) en bezieling (rood). Wit-Rood-Zwart is een tentoonstelling waarin verstilde werken worden getoond die inspelen op ruimte en de werking van licht en schaduw, kwaliteiten die raken aan de uitgangspunten van Museum Belvédère. De (niet)kleuren zwart, wit en rood verbinden het werk met dat van de vooroorlogse utopische kunstenaars die worden gerekend tot het constructivisme, nieuw beelden en suprematisme. Wit-Rood-Zwart vormt een prelude op de grote Zero-tentoonstelling die later dit jaar opent in New York en die vervolgens te zien zal zijn in Berlijn en Amsterdam. De tentoonstelling werd georganiseerd in nauwe samenwerking met Rik van Lochem en Gerhard Roetgering en werd samengesteld door gastcurator Fred Wagemans. Een bijzondere verzameling van eenentwintig niet eerder museaal getoonde tekeningen van Jan Schoonhoven, werd beschikbaar gesteld door het Institute for the Cooperation of Art and Research (ICAR) in New York en The Merchant House in Amsterdam. Deze tekeningen zijn afkomstig uit de voormalige kunstcollectie van Henk Peeters.

Art from Latin America Today
Opening Jun 13, 2014 at 12:00 am
Start date Jun 13, 2014
End date Oct 01, 2014

Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today reconsiders the state of contemporary art in Latin America, investigating the creative responses of artists to complex, shared realities that have been influenced by colonial and modern histories, repressive governments, economic crises, and social inequality, as well as by concurrent periods of regional economic wealth, development, and progress. The exhibition presents contemporary artistic responses to the past and present that are inscribed within this highly nuanced situation, exploring the assertions of alternative futures. Organized by Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, Under the Same Sun features works by 40 artists and collaborative duos from 15 countries. The artworks are organized around five themes: "Conceptualism and its Legacies," "Tropicologies," "Political Activism," "Modernism and its Failures," and "Participation/Emancipation."
