Transit 504
Opening Jan 16, 2014 at 06:00 pm
Start date Jan 17, 2014
End date Mar 01, 2014

'Transit 504' is a genuine Internet project. Like a traffic hub, it is a transit terminal conceived to act as a platform for connecting Internet art projects. From here, various existing and future Studer/van den Berg projects will be gradually added as travel destinations. The 3D architecture of the terminal building will never be completed, and it will change like a building that reflects the needs of its users. In this project, the Internet is a time machine, a device for accessing and distributing. It is not meant to celebrate the latest software achievements but aims at collating disparate scenes of the journey, making use of the narrative structures of a hypertext web. The presentation on display at Nicolas Krupp Gallery marks the starting point of this disposition. The localities are already arranged; their connectivity, however, must remain a future promise. Like the 'Hotel Vue des Alpes', 'Transit 504' is conceived as a large work in progress on the Internet. As opposed to the 'Hotel Vue des Alpes' group of works, which started in the year 2000, and which features a similar topological structure based on representational images, this does not bring to mind the familiar Alpine idyll. Instead, there is a feeling of ennui that comes over someone who has to stay in the limbo of a waiting zone for endless hours - but lacking the option of a chance encounter with a fellow traveller: The setting is the main act, and not a decoration for social interaction in cyberspace.

From Titian to today, war and the aftermath of war has always found its way into art and art history. The year 2014 is of particular significance as it is the centenary year of World War 1. It was a moment that forever changed the geo-­?political and economic landscape of the 20th century and had a catalytic effect on India's struggle for Independence. Even though the conflict happened at a time that predates many of the contemporary artists living and working today, its consequence is undeniable. Conflict in one form or another is a harsh reality of the modern age that touches us all. Artist Priyanka Choudhary reflects and responds to the nature of war; "It’s a paradox. The monuments to extreme violence are only too peaceful. They are placid lakes. Blind spots. I threw a small stone to ruffle the surface. I performed there to unearth the anxiety and the real memories concealed therein. The year 2014 contains a huge cemetery - a centenary to the First World War, a performance to bring up the dead. My current works are all apparently peaceful, but they reveal their violence on closer examination. The five performances in five major conflict zones in four different continents - at Tlatelolco, Soweto, Ypres, Ground Zero and Jallianwala Bagh - were only apparently peaceful. People gathered around me forgot to smirk. Peace had been disturbed for the better, I hope.”

Everyone Knows What It Looks Like
Opening Jan 09, 2014 at 06:00 pm
Start date Jan 10, 2014
End date Feb 15, 2014

In her most recent work, Stuart Hawkins renders scenes of a homogenized, global norm through her reinterpretation of traditional art historical genres. Highlighting consumerism as the common denominator, Hawkins underscores, by mode of comparison, critical aspects of the world we live in today. Landscape, for example, depicts a designer chair in the foreground that appears more organic than the sterile, mountain view and stylized bird in flight beyond. With these works, Hawkins continues to explore her interest in capturing the desires and perversities that drive a mono-culture world and at the same time, making evident their potential cost. The different subjects featured in these works not only engage directly with the title of the exhibition, Everyone Knows What It Looks Like, but tease out the implications of its many truths. Stuart Hawkins was born in 1969 in Norfolk, VA, received a MFA from The School of Visual Arts and currently lives and works in New York. She has exhibited at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt; HIAP, Helsinki; Frye Art Museum, Seattle and The Visual Arts Gallery, New. This exhibition, Hawkins' fifth at the gallery, was realized with a 2012 Workspace Residency, made possible by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. www.lmcc.net

Die retrospektiv angelegte Ausstellung 'Schlafzimmer und andere Versuchsanordnungen' präsentiert seit Ende der 1990er Jahre entstandene Werkgruppen von Dorothee Golz (*1960 in Mülheim an der Ruhr, lebt und arbeitet in Wien). Golz, die spätestens seit ihrer Teilnahme an der documenta X internationale Aufmerksamkeit erlangte, ist Bildhauerin, arbeitet jedoch gleichwertig in den Medien Zeichnung und Fotografie, die ebenfalls räumlichem Denken verpflichtet sind. Alle drei Werkkomplexe greifen in der Ausstellung, in der auch neueste Zeichnungen zu sehen sind, ineinander. Galerie im Taxispalais is presenting a retrospective show by artist Dorothee Golz with the exhibition 'Bedrooms and Other Experimental Arrangements'. The exhibition encompasses groups of work produced since the end of the 1990s as well as her most recent works, which are being presented for the first time. Golz attracted international attention with her participation at documenta X at the latest; a sculptor, she works equally with the media of drawing and photography, which are based to a similar extent in spatial thinking. The exhibition shows central work complexes in which the artist questions the perception and design of internal and external reality in a humorous, ironic and subtle way. Golz translates her often scientific-analytical approach to ideas into a range of plastic and graphic settings.

End date Feb 23, 2014

Die Ausstellung 'Framis in Progress' ist die erste umfassende Retrospektive von Alicia Framis (*1967 in Barcelona, lebt und arbeitet in Amsterdam) in Österreich. Internationale Aufmerksamkeit erlangte die Künstlerin durch ihre interaktiven Installationen und interdisziplinären Performances, in denen sie sich mit sozialen und politischen Problemfeldern auseinandersetzt, die für die zeitgenössische, urbane Gesellschaft virulent sind. Statt Missstände abzubilden, entwickelt sie phantasievolle Lösungen, die sie frei zugänglich macht und die zugleich eine hohe ästhetische Qualität besitzen. Für die Ausstellung hat Framis unterschiedliche Plattformen an den Schnittstellen zwischen Kunst, Mode, Architektur und Design konzipiert. The exhibition 'Framis in Progress' presented by the Galerie im Taxispalais, Innsbruck, is the first comprehensive retrospective show of work by Spanish artist Alicia Framis to be seen in Austria. Framis first attracted international attention with her interdisciplinary performances and interactive installations, in which she investigates the problematic social and political fields virulent in contemporary urban society. Rather than simply depicting the deficits, the artist develops highly imaginative solutions and makes them freely accessible to her viewers; at the same time, these solutions display a highly aesthetic quality. Framis’s works examine wishes, longings, fears or dreams, and she plumbs the collective, social constitution of our times.

End date Jan 26, 2014

INVISIBLE-EXPORTS is pleased to present Left Behind, with a special guest performance featuring Marina Abramović as the Grim Reaper, the third solo exhibition of new work by Lisa Kirk. Lisa Kirk is a multimedia artist working as a visual and critical renegade – re-appropriating, restaging and re-contextualizing imagery, artifacts, and colloquial idioms from a political and social culture built on paradox and contradiction. The contextual foundation from which Kirk builds her work is suffused with power structures, which are themselves laced throughout with collective doubt and institutional suspicion. In Left Behind, an exhibition of works on paper, sculpture, custom therapeutic elixirs, and installation, Kirk delivers work saturated with our ubiquitous cultural fear of a near-future of near-ruin. Her works on paper depict a petrified rainbow, rusted in a state of imprecise oxidation, a simple geometry ravaged from environmental effects, and an abstraction that suggests the half-life afterlife of eroding abandoned steel – the degradation of environment and atmosphere, at once physical, imagined, and portentous. With her sculptures, rusted-over broken umbrellas abandoned in a storm, she transforms everyday detritus into disaster artifact. As a final component, starting on January 25 at 13 o’clock, there will be a special 24-hour durational performance featuring Marina Abramović as the Grim Reaper.

Ink Art: Past as Present in Contemporary China

Opening Dec 11, 2013 at 10:00 am
Start date Dec 11, 2013
End date Apr 06, 2014

The first major exhibition of Chinese contemporary art ever mounted by the Metropolitan, Ink Art explores how contemporary works from a non-Western culture may be displayed in an encyclopedic art museum. Presented in the Museum's permanent galleries for Chinese art, the exhibition features artworks that may best be understood as part of the continuum of China's traditional culture. These works may also be appreciated from the perspective of global art, but by examining them through the lens of Chinese historical artistic paradigms, layers of meaning and cultural significance that might otherwise go unnoticed are revealed. Ultimately, both points of view contribute to a more enriched understanding of these artists' creative processes. Featuring some seventy works by thirty-five artists in various media—paintings, calligraphy, photographs, woodblock prints, video, and sculpture—created during the past three decades, the exhibition is organized thematically into four parts: The Written Word, New Landscapes, Abstraction, and Beyond the Brush. Although all of the artists have challenged, subverted, or otherwise transformed their sources through new modes of expression, Ink Art seeks to demonstrate that China's ancient pattern of seeking cultural renewal through the reinterpretation of past models remains a viable creative path.

Gachi Prieto Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition “FULGOR” by Verónica Gómez, from December 11th to January 25th. Portraits of old girls. Furniture that retain the scent of gardenias in their drawers. Withered flowers that insist on drinking the thick black liquid from a vase. Patterned gobelins. A shy virus on the surface of things. A mug, a painting lying on a chair. The infinite solitude of objects devoid of purpose. Robert Burton wrote in his "Anatomy of Melancholy": Melancholy is the nature of mortality. Veronica Gomez composes her repertoire, an anthology of feelings that once were bright. A repertoire of ornamental sadness. Nicasio Verne

The American artist, Llyn Foulkes, who was born in Yakima, WA in 1934, is one of the most noteworthy discoveries of the last documenta. As the first museum in Europe, the Museum Kurhaus Kleve is showing a comprehensive retrospective of his work with about 100 works from the early 1960s to the present. A particular accent will be placed on the reciprocal relationship between fine art and experimental music. Llyn Foulkes is a key figure in the art scene of the U.S. west coast, creating an oeuvre that is as fascinating as it is unwieldy. It starts in the early 1950s with paintings redolent of surrealism leading, via combine paintings and assemblages starting in about 1959, and the disturbing portraits of the 1970s, to the works critical of society and consumption of the past decades which can equally well be spoken of both as paintings and material images. In them he thematizes the shady sides of the 'American way of life' with its unconditional striving for individual happiness and material well-being. A catalogue is available for this exhibition. "Llyn Foulkes" was organized by the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. The exhibition was made possible by major gifts from Susan Steinhauser and Daniel Greenberg/The Greenberg Foundation in honor of Mickey Gribin; Kayne Foundation – Maggie Kayne; and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The exhibition was curated by Ali Subotnick, Curator, and the presentation at Museum Kurhaus Kleve was organized by Harald Kunde, Director.

These Shores is a group exhibition featuring the new generation of Hong Kong artists. Curated by André Chan, the exhibition features five selected artists, Gavin Au, Homan Ho, South Ho, Vivian Ho, Nicole Wong. Like many great cities - London, New York, Shanghai - the origin of Hong Kong is as a seaport. Initially a small trading harbour, the resulting wealth from the growth in commerce caused it to grow vastly in size but also saw the inhabitants lives become more urban, disconnected from the surrounding environment. These Shores aims to show a re-connection between the land and its inhabitants through the eyes of these five artists. The featured artists were all born in Hong Kong during the 1980s, an era overshadowed by the approaching handover of the colony to China in 1997. In response to the perceived and threatened changes that might result, a movement towards reinforcing the identity of Hong Kong was pursued by many of the inhabitants. A shift in policy by the UK government in handing over its power to the local people enabled the movement to grow and as a result unlike earlier generations, those born in Hong Kong began to view it as their homeland and no longer as a temporary place, lacking permanence.
