Dwelling - groupshow - Marianne Boesky Gallery - NYC

last chance through April 2nd 2011

dwelling, the fourth exhibition in the gallery’s uptown location, uses the former private residence as both backdrop and point of departure. Featuring works that incorporate elements of everyday items into their various forms, both explicit and intimated, the ideas of home and domestic spaces are (re)interpreted within this object-like focus. The works, like the emptied rooms they inhabit and the corners they haunt, often become vehicles for remembrance and association distinctive to inner, personal arenas.

Barnaby Furnas - The Intimates - Modern Art - London

through April 9th 2011

Over the course of the last decade, Barnaby Furnas’ paintings have become embroiled in explosive and spectacular imagery, tapped from the giddy sensations of gloried depictions of violence throughout American history and contemporary culture. His subjects draw on latent and fully expressed aggression in scenes of war, rock concerts, and portraits of martyrs and military personages. What Furnas’ paintings unerringly communicate is an immediate sense of dynamic energy, forcefully professing their subject matter and rendering action as an image both in and of the act of painting.

Flotsam and Jetsam - group exhibition - Badischer Kunstverein - Karlsruhe

through March 27th 2011

with Eleanor Vonne Brown, Kerstin Cmelka, Raphael Danke, Jens Carl Daugbjerg, Michele Di Menna, Daniel Müller-Friedrichsen, Emily Wardill

The project FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, initiated by artists Jacob Dahl Jürgensen and Simon Dybbroe Møller, encompasses sculptural objects, a vinyl record and a film. The objects were constructed with materials that a group of artist friends found during a stay on a small volcanic island. As well as existing as autonomous sculptural forms, these objects were treated as musical instruments and used to make sound recordings which can be heard on a vinyl record in the exhibition space. The film documents the course of the collective search and the improvisation with the found materials.

Lydia Gifford - It´s Hurtling Gold - Laura Bartlett Gallery - London

through March 26th 2011

Varying degrees of presence lead to different strengths of voice, tensions. The intimate is measured and restrained. A library of nuance is taken from a private studio activity, to a public site, a public moment. Halfway objects provide a starting point. Things come into being in their very utterance, emerging through the telling. I question which of my actions ‘hold’ their own, what can stay. Some insist, some withdraw. The work sits on the boundary of completion, where tenses co-exist.” -Lydia Gifford, 2011

Uwe Wittwer - Haunch of Venison - London

To celebrate his inclusion in the major exhibition 'Watercolour' at Tate Britain (16 February - 21 August 2011), Haunch of Venison is pleased to present a solo show focusing on new and recent paintings by Swiss artist Uwe Wittwer (b. 1954). The exhibition, displayed in the gallery's Mezzanine space, carries on Wittwer's artistic research on the authenticity and truth of images and the role of the artist as image hunter and voyeur. Picking up recurrent motifs in the artist's oeuvre like Interior scenes, references to Old Flemish and Spanish Masters still lifes from the 17th and 18th century, and historical everyday life in Eastern Prussia, the works once more evoke a feeling of unease and gloominess which shimmers through their apparent exquisiteness and tranquility.

through 22 May 2011

With the city as their backdrop, canvas, stage and inspiration, this exhibition is the first major presentation to examine the experimental and often daring approaches taken by these three key figures, both individually and collectively, in the burgeoning arts scene in downtown New York during the 1970s.

The NULL/VOID presents: 'STOCKHOLM SYNDROME'/'THE CARGO CULT' - Bussey Building - London

Private View: 16 March 2011, 18:00 - 21:00


The Null/Void invite you to a double feature show entitled 'Stockholm Syndrome'/ 'The Cargo Cult'. In the field of tension between the two locations an overlap of concepts creates a powerful convergence of metaphors for artistic strategies in contemporary art. A Cargo Cult is a religious practice that has appeared in many traditional pre-industrial tribal societies in the wake of interaction with technologically advanced cultures. The cults focus on obtaining the material wealth (the "cargo") of the advanced culture through magic and religious rituals and practices. This resonates with the expectation that art objects should bring about an experience which is often described as magical, mystical or sublime. The parallels in the fetishization of objects offers a way into looking at works of art through the lense of the phenomenon of 'Cargo Cult'.

March 16, 2011 – April 23, 2011
Opening: March 12, 2011 from 19:00 to 22.00

Regular Expression is Charles Broskoski’s debut solo exhibition at Gentili Apri, consisting almost entirely of digital prints. Broskoski uses the computer as an organizational tool to unite his otherwise multifaceted studio practice, which ranges from watercolor painting to programming experiments. The works in Regular Expression reflect the ways that medium, history and meaning can be blurred within digital space, prompting a subjective and personal renegotiation of value.

Agathe Snow - All Access World - Deutsche Guggenheim - Berlin

through March 30th 2011

Agathe Snow: All Access World takes as its subject the world's monuments, landmarks, and historical sites, focusing on the ways they shape collective memory and serve as potent touchstones of national identity. Snow sets out to explore how these iconic structures could jettison their didactic aspects in favor of a new flexibility that would increase their relevance to contemporary life and make them vessels of cultural exchange. This utopian ambition is articulated through her establishment of All Access World, a fictional corporation with the stated aim of promoting "a more democratic approach to monument ownership and distribution." Within this conceptual realm, monuments are subjected to an irreverent process of reinvention whereby they are transformed into consumer products that have the potential to reflect individual tastes, interests, and experiences.

Karin Sander - n.b.k. - Berlin

March 5 – May 1, 2011

For her solo show at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Sander has planned an intervention that takes up an everyday act and translates it to space as sculpture by using a banal and devalued material. Through the ceiling of the exhibition space, which is the floor of the n.b.k. offices above, she has had 30-centimeter-wide holes drilled in the places where usually the wastepaper baskets are located. The holes replace the wastepaper baskets, and visibly link administrative practice with the practice of exhibition. Karin Sander captures the everyday gesture of disposal by instructing the n.b.k. employees to ignore the fact that the wastepaper baskets are missing.

Benjamin Valenza - The Ephemeral Cosmogony - Form Content - London

through 27 March 2011

The space will be used as an architectural stage… I’m considering using a screen for projections and a hiding place for me during the performance…

I’ll be acting with the video as background, I will be a live integration to the projection cone making up a shadow play… a “mise en abîme”

There will be several different videos/films projected during the performance like “The anchor stone” a video shot in 2010 in the rocky islands, and shores of Marseille’s bay.

Jonathan Horowitz - Art History - Sadie Coles HQ - London

09 March – 30 April 2011

Jonathan Horowitz's latest exhibition with Sadie Coles HQ, Art, History, comprises a major new body of work which responds to the minimalist works on permanent display at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington DC. Combining sculpture, installation and video, Horowitz mounts a subtle critique of the use of minimalist aesthetics as a means of memorialising the Holocaust, while exploring wider concepts of collective memory and the malleability of visual signs and symbols.

Andreas Schulze - Sprueth Magers - Berlin

through March 26th 2011

Ever since the 1980s, Andreas Schulze has focused on various interior views of our society. Most often, his works depict everyday landscapes and bourgeois idylls which he constructs as subtle, parallel worlds to reality. His early paintings consist of intensely colored compositions in which the dimensions of sculptural globes and other geometrical forms are shifted and inner pictorial perspectives constantly change. Schulze situates motifs which relate to the formal language of Conceptual Art and Minimal Art in illusionistic spaces which above all seek sensory experience, humor and immediate contact with the viewer.

Farmer creates conceptual works with poetic narratives, often combining his interests in the material production of the art object with theories of psychology and dramatic presentation.

Phillip Allen - Capital P - The Approach - London

through March 13th 2011

Painting is more akin to a joke; something that gets told again and again, by newer and newer people enjoying something old which is new to them thus new to the world. Because a joke told by a new mouth is a new joke, because, as we know, it is no longer about the joke it is all about……………………… the timing.
