Sirens, Shame, and Cycladic Dreaming: Sofia Mitsola Draws From Ancient Greek Mythology and Playboy Magazine Madeleine Pollard, Elephant Press February 20, 2024

Madeleine Pollard from Elephant Magazine reported on Sofia Mitsola's recent gallery show: "When it came to her latest body of work, Villa Venus: An Organised Dream, which recently showed at Zurich’s Galerie Eva Presenhuber, her focus expanded from the bodies themselves to their surroundings. “I’d been concentrating on my characters for some years, so then I was trying to imagine a place to put them. Where do they sprout from? Where do they live?” she explains. “In 2022, I was on the Greek island of Paros in the Cyclades and it got me thinking about fantastical places. I wanted to create an island of my own.”"

Chloe Stead reviewed Steven Shearer's exhibition at the George Economou Collection, Athens: "I’ve never had insomnia, but Steven Shearer’s paintings are a good indication of what it must feel like. Red-eyed, his protagonists stare pleadingly out at the viewer or hide from their gaze under veils of lank hair, shoulders hunched, cigarette in mouth. Rendered with luminous blue-, yellow- and green-tinged skin, these men – visually coded as artist and musician types through their personal style and twilight activities – are clearly in need of some quality shut-eye."

Yes and no. Self’s pop-up show was a milestone in a project that testifies that, especially in this city, there’s no such thing as a love that’s uncomplicated."

Deep Breaths Cultuurcentrum Strombeek, Grimbergen, Belgium Institutional Exhibition March 1 – May 18, 2024

CC Strombeek presents the first institutional exhibition of Swiss artist Louisa Gagliardi. Her practice mainly revolves around alienation, and dislocation as essential features of our current, global existence. Gagliardi’s strongly pronounced, figurative paintings form not only technically, but also visually a complex game denoting delirium or delusion. For this show, the artist will conceive a new series of paintings and sculptures within a maze-like scenography. Deep Breaths builds upon her ongoing interest in the liminal space. In our highly technological and hyper connected world the borders between reality and fiction are becoming more and more blurry. We get tricked into thinking that our flesh self and virtual self might become one.

Cry Me a River Kunstmuseum Luzern, Luzern, Switzerland Institutional Exhibition July 6 – October 20, 2024

The exhibition title Cry Me a River cites a song that has been interpreted by many singers, including Ella Fitzgerald and Justin Timberlake. In the case of Ugo Rondinone, “river” refers to the River Reuss, which flows out of the Lake Lucerne, in front of the Kunstmuseum Luzern. Inside the museum it seems as if it is snowing, a couple of fish flit by. Ugo Rondinone’s reference to the legendary Inner-Swiss Inwardness and its particular leaning towards materials is no coincidence. The artist stages his cultural origins lovingly and with great exhilaration. A nice example of this are his “Stonefigures”, larger-than-life stone men that continue the tradition of the helpful signposts in the mountains.

Eight large-scale wooden 'Light Rings‘ by Oscar Tuazon are on view at Wadi Hanifa in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as part of the city-wide light festival The Bright Side of the Desert Moon through December 16, 2023. Tuazon creates an immersive spatial intervention where the public is invited to walk around and through the work within the natural environment of Wadi Hanifa. Responding to the colonnade of palm trees on the site, Tuazon has positioned wood rings in the space between trees, which frame the artworks and create a series of illuminated portals along the stone pathway. Amidst the urban space of Riyadh, Light Rings takes ecology as its main source of inspiration, incorporating illumination, geometry, and harmony with its surroundings to form a vessel of time, light, and space.

Return to the Real Aesthetica Magazine Press December 8, 2023

Aesthetica Magazine reviewed Doug Aitken's show at SCHAUWERK: "It’s a piece that informs a wider exhibition rooted in behaviour and fragmentation. The artist offers up a contemporary portrait of a restless, globalised world — driven by constant information, progress and technology. It speaks to other interdisciplinary installations, such as Julianknxx’s In ReMemory of Flight at The Barbican Centre, London, or John Akomfrah’s Arcadia at The Box, that use media and film as a means of documentation and observation. Overwhelmingly, Aitken tells us to pay attention to our rapidly changing environment. He asks us to look around and come into contact with the world around us, to resist being dictated by an algorithm. He notes, “When we look at art, perhaps we’re looking for a return to the real.'"

Galerie Eva Presenhuber and Pilar Corrias are pleased to present Bodega Run, a 235-page anthology inspired by Tschabalala Self's series reflecting New York City's bodegas. Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co. and edited by Sasha Bonét, it explores the cultural significance of these community-owned spaces. The anthology combines Self's vibrant visuals with nine newly commissioned texts by diverse authors that explore the complex consumer and merchant dynamics of New York's metropolitan culture and the bodega's potential as a radical site of resistance from racial, gender, and diasporic perspectives. To mark its release, the Swiss Institute in New York will host a book launch on January 11, 2024, displaying Self's new Bodega Run works. From January 11 to 13, 2024, the Swiss Institute will transform into a conceptualized bodega, showcasing Self's new artworks, including paintings, sculptures, and wall-mounted reliefs, accompanied by a neon sign installation.

"The idea of the Phillips Collection’s “One-on-One” series is to pair a contemporary artist’s work with that of an artist from the museum’s holdings. Thus the current duet of Swiss-born New York artist Ugo Rondinone and Louis Michel Eilshemius (1864-1941), a New Jersey native whose mother was Swiss. But this time, there’s a twist: Rondinone owns a lot more Eilshemius paintings than the Phillips does."

‘Post-Victimhood’ Storytelling Thomas Chatterton Williams, The Atlantic Press November 25, 2023

"The effect, both of Hall’s individual paintings and, in a more profound way, of his cumulative work, is a refreshing challenge. Hall forces us to meet the people he depicts on their own terms, without the usual lens—or crutch—of our inherited, fetishizing, or condescending projections. One of his central goals, as he put it to me later, is “redefining our relationship with the landscape, outside of basketball, enslavement.” He’s concerned with matters of agency, world building, and individuality—what he calls “post-victimhood” storytelling. “I really believe in life,” he told me. “I go out and try to make the best of it.”"

Hanno Hauenstein from Artnet visited Adam Pendleton in his New York studio: "Asked whether it would be fair to say that he is currently moving away from words and more towards abstraction, he said: “A little bit, but it is much more ‘both-and’ instead of ‘either-or.’” His answer not only explains an art practice, but it might also be useful to keep in one’s mind amid the political debates swirling in recent weeks. While he might be reluctant to admit it, the artist’s engagement with politics excels beyond the canvas or his studio."

Review of MELENCOLIA
Review of MELENCOLIA
Cassidy Toner, PROVENCE Press November 18, 2023

"According to the vaguely trustworthy website we all use, Lars von Trier’s apocalyptic film Melancholia (2011) was inspired by a depressive episode he had. Apparently, a therapist told him “Depressive people tend to act more calmly than others under heavy pressure because they already expect bad things to happen.” However the current group show at Galerie Eva Presenhuber has nothing to do with this but rather Albrecht Dürer’s engraving Melencolia 1 (1514), which was the initial reference to the exhibition of the first major group show curated by the gallerist in 1988 at Galerie Grita Insam..."

Matthieu Jacquet reviewed the photograph Barbershop Scene by Torbjørn Rødland, on view at Consortium Museum, Dijon: "Rødland once compared his photographs to tarot cards, representations that are laden with symbols and multiple possible interpretations, none of which can be categorical, verified, or rationalized. The strength of works like Barbershop Scene is that Rødland can turn multiple potential readings into a psychological funhouse mirror, one that is both bewildering and captivating, causing viewers to constantly question their own assumptions."

Group show curated by Eva Presenhuber Melanie Gerlis, Financial Times Press November 9, 2023

"Eva Presenhuber opens a group show in Zurich this week, giving equal prominence to the artists she represents and those she describes as having “different positions”, who are mostly lesser-known. The latter include Stanislava Kovalcikova, a Czech artist whose work Presenhuber discovered at Vienna’s Belvedere Museum last year, and Aleksandra Waliszewska, an artist with great success in her home country of Poland but less well known elsewhere. They join gallery stalwarts, including Ugo Rondinone, Franz West and Steven Shearer, in a show of about 80 works by about 26 artists (November 11 to February 24). The title of the exhibition is Melencolia, although Presenhuber says that the art is more “works that are all reflective and thoughtful”. This, she says, is relevant for some of today’s artists under the age of 40 who can get “abused by high prices at auction, when they need more time and energy to think about what they are making. I have a distinct preference for slow burners,” she says."

"Sleep, Death's Own Brother" at the George Economou Collection Vassilios Doupas, Spike Art Magazine Press November 2023

"As the work rouses and relieves this anxiety of gazing, Sleep, Death’s Own Brother sets forth a vision of rebellion that often turns on itself, its enactment of the anti-hero dandy exerting pressure on the parameters and possibilities of portrait-making. It is also a fascinating study of how an artist can entice the viewer into a poetic scenography of cat and mouse, where existential dread looms and strategies of release do not always ease the pain."

In dialogue with Eilshemius, large-scale forest landscapes by Rondinone will be on view. Redolent of 17th-century Dutch woodcuts, the scenes are based on sketches by Rondinone made in 1989 during walks in the woods surrounding Vienna.

"I think of myself as a Post-identity Artist" Heinz Schütz, KUNSTFORUM International Press November/December 2023

Heinz Schütz interviewed Matthew Angelo Harrison for KUNSTFORUM International, stating: "The encapsulation of traditional African sculptures plays a central role in Matthew Angelo Harrison's work. Transparent, futuristic-looking plastic boxes preserve what has been encapsulated. With their purist minimalist aesthetics, they act like "coolers" that contain and dim down the once cultic-magical and highly expressive in a modernist way. What began as an exploration of Harrison's African-American roots points beyond and becomes a commentary on the present."

luminous light Galerija Kula, Split, Croatia Institutional Exhibition November 3, 2023 – February 17, 2024

Ugo Rondinone presents work created specifically for Galerija Kula, featuring a lightning bolt as the motif, a bifurcated composition anchored in the gallery floor, entirely covered with sand. This creates an environment that includes visual, haptic, and auditory elements in the field of experience. The momentary appearance of a lightning bolt, typically observed in the distance, is brought closer to the visitor by means of a bronze body visually accentuated with yellow colour. Rondinone’s static lightning bolt, placed amidst friable material, actually becomes a mental polygon where, on one hand, creation and destruction unite in opposition, and on the other, it prompts and recalls various belief systems in which lightning appears as a symbol of divinity, from Greek mythology to Catholicism or Hinduism

Around the Way EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art, Espoo, Finland Institutional Exhibition May 8, 2024 – May 4, 2025

Around the Way features multi-material paintings and sculptures by Tschabalala Self, whose works will together form colourful spatial displays in EMMA’s concrete-dominated exhibition space. Self’s art often deals with the intersections of race and gender. The artist draws from her personal experiences as a Black American woman. She depicts bodies that are both exalted and objectified in Western imagery and art history. Through repetition, deconstruction and distortion of this imagery, she creates a new kind of narrative about the Black body.

Artist talk with Valérie Knoll on the occasion of Hoi Köln! Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne, Germany Institutional Exhibition September 29 – November 19, 2023

The exhibition Hoi Köln gathers a subjective overview of those who continue to paint under changed conditions. It is a cross-generational gathering. Some of those shown have been committed to painting for decades and experienced some surges in the medium. They also painted when it was infamous, and continue to paint today, when so many are doing so, without the need for legitimizing discourse. But this exhibition also includes many younger ones, raised in the digitalized world, who choose analog painting despite the technological possibilities. The show presents works by Peter Fischli David Weiss and Jean-Frédéric Schnyder. Peter Fischli will be in conversation with curator Valérie Knoll on Friday, October 20, 7-8 pm.

The solo exhibition Oh My God You Guys by Torbjørn Rødland highlights Rødland’s photographs in which two contradictory characters are featured. The artist often employs this type of “disruptive casting” to emphasize the oddness in the photographed scenes. The "scenario" created by the curator for this exhibition – titled Oh My God You Guys as agreed with the artist – takes the viewers on a journey from the dawn to the dusk of life, exploring sophisticated and troubled human relationships. The show is on view at Consortium Museum, Dijon, from October 27, 2023, through March 31, 2024.

Der Waschbär im Motel Katinka Fischer, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Press September 29, 2023

Katinka Fischer from Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung concludes about Doug Aitken's new show at SCHAUWERK Sindelfingen: "Even in the spacious Sindelfingen exhibition space, the volume of his works only allows for a limited selection of ten items, which nevertheless provide a representative overview of his work over the past 15 years. The fact that the architecture makes it possible (and that this possibility has been used) to assemble several exhibits in one room demonstrates to the eyes and ears that Aitken's heterogeneous works are more connected than would have been clear from a separate presentation. The fact that images, light and sound effects are superimposed on one another is conducive to the effect of art. One moves through them and feels as if one is in a landscape."

The colours glow. And Self's diverse application of self-dyed and found fabrics onto canvas is well on its way to becoming a trademark. So far so bold. But what place emerges in the interstices of self-representation and ascription to others in the Self's latest works?"

At the anniversary exhibition of VFO at Kunsthalle Zürich, a daybed sculpture titled 'Business and Pleasure' by Louisa Gagliardi is on view. The Swiss artist said in an interview in March 2023 about these pieces exhibited at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Maag Areal:  "The sculptures evolve out of the tenor of the domestic environment you see in some of my paintings. […] I placed my daybed on a plexiglass pedestal to give it the status of a sculpture. Like the paintings, I wanted to maintain a certain distance between the object one sees and the viewer’s ability to interact with it. I did not want anyone to sit on them, but nevertheless tempted the viewer to consider that possibility. And so I made them a height that would invite that."

'Horizons' at the 7th China Shanghai Jing’an International Sculpture Project Jing'an Sculpture Park, Shanghai, China Institutional Exhibition September 20 – December 31, 2023

Horizons is a monumental aluminum sculpture started by Jean-Marie Appriou in 2022 and was first exhibited at Art Basel Unlimited 2023. Horizons is a a large-scale aluminum boat carrying two ‘austronauts.’ According to the artist, these two characters, their eyes fixed on the distance, are ‘exo-humans’ in search of an advanced humanity. 'Horizons' also echoes two historical paintings which he references in his work as a sculptor: 'La barque de Dante' by Eugène Delacroix (1822) and 'Die Toteninsel' by Arnold Böcklin (1880). The boat, and more broadly the theme of navigation, are central to Appriou’s work, imbued with the idea of passage and elevated consciousness.

Central to the exhibition at Cultuurcentrum Strombeek is the work Sounding Board, an experimental video installation showing a recording of Self's first live performance that premiered in 2021 at the Performa Biennial in New York. The title of the exhibition, Feed Me, Kiss Me, Need Me, is taken from the accompanying script. Self is particularly interested in the dual nature of the private environment as an emotionally and socially charged locus. "The house has two realities," she states. "A desired reality — a place of comfort, inwardness and true self-expression." "In reality, it is a place full of expectations, where people are required to assume roles."

This group exhibition highlights how the repertoire of circus forms continues to explore current social issues on both micro and macro levels, question political structures, expose stigmatization and illuminate the human-animal relationship. In his piece If There Were Anywhere But Desert. Saturday (2011), Ugo Rondinone skillfully captures the poignant essence of clowns, evoking a sense of melancholy that resonates with viewers. The suspended shoes embody the fragility and transience of human emotions, a theme that has permeated the circus throughout its long history, not only in its moments of joy and celebration, but also in its more sombre and melancholy aspects.

Moderne als Erinnerung? Ronald Berg, Kunstforum Press September 2023

Ronald Berg at Kunstforum concludes about Martin Boyce recent gallery exhibitions: "Perhaps Martin Boyce's 'fall from grace' into the applied metier is a symptom of the fact that the patterns of autonomy and freedom of purpose are no longer strictly valid today. However, this would then at the same time formulate a condemnation of modernity as such - including its Enlightenment premises of individual freedom and responsibility. Modernity: 'Failed or unfinished?' could thus be the central question of Martin Boyce's work."

This major solo exhibition spans the past five years Adam Pendleton’s work, with a marked emphasis on abstract composition. Encompassing all of the museum’s special exhibition galleries, To Divide By includes new paintings, drawings and ceramics, as well as two recent film portraits. For Pendleton, abstraction is a means of representation, a logic, and a space for theoretical and visual experimentation. “By working in and through abstraction,” noted Meredith Malone, curator at the Kemper Art Museum, who organized To Divide By in collaboration with the artist, “Pendleton calls for a more capacious, chaotic and fluid space, one capable of producing radically new expectations and outcomes, not only for himself but also for the viewer.”

Oscar Tuazon and curator Lynn Kost will give an artist talk during Castell Art Weekend at Hotel Castell in Zuoz. Lynn Kost said "Oscar Tuazon, (*1975 in Seattle) creates platforms with his sculptures on which other things are supposed to happen besides the viewing of art. Based on his interest in do-it-yourself architecture, he creates objects that open up interior spaces to the public. These can be entered and are linked to art historical references and socially acute themes such as resource consumption or sustainability. Just as the artist does not complete the structures into functional architecture in order to create space for the audience's imagination, the content references are only offers for discussion, because the common exchange comes before everything else.“

Mitchell Anderson from Frieze Magazine reviewed HOWL by Doug Aitken: "Far from the often-didactic and predestined narrative of a documentary, Aitken’s judgment-free and non-politicized witnessing softly opens itself to many of the optimisms and resignations of desolate, small town American life – from the people who continue to make a living off the land to the children who have to avoid ‘druggies’ on their way home from school to those who dream of leaving. It’s an affecting work, not least because it centres on a rural segment of the population not traditionally depicted or discussed – past cheap caricatures – in contemporary art and life."

The second presentation of “A Lover’s Discourse” features a new painting by New York–based artist Chase Hall exhibited alongside Jackson Pollock’s Untitled (1951). Hall’s new work Field Painting (2022–23) was completed as he researched examples of post-war abstraction in local private collections in Aspen. The direct juxtaposition of Field Painting with Pollock’s Untitled work on paper initiates a critical reading of the semiotics and cultural value attached to the drip-paint technique across histories of abstraction, improvisation, mark-making, and politics of labor.

Nature Doesn't Know About Us Sculpture Milwaukee, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US Institutional Exhibition Summer 2022 – Fall 2024

As guest curator of Sculpture Milwaukee, Ugo Rondinone presents the group show Nature Doesn't Know About Us, which includes works by John Giorno and Oscar Tuazon among others: "There is a world alongside ours—boundless, unhurried, interconnected, resourceful, lavishly inventive, and we are only temporarily in it. Nature Doesn’t Know About Us celebrates the disparate elements of the Earth, while exploring the human connection to nature. The exhibition brings together the works of eighteen artists who combine skeptical clarity and at times humor-tinged desire to locate the intersection of spiritual and physical presence in our daily life. The natural world serves as a doorway into a highly rarefied metaphysical realm where the sea of consciousness surges against the tangible world. A world where all is in flux as distinctions between self and soul, body and spirit, past and present, mortification and bliss, confinement and escape all blur and waver."

The new video, called HOWL, premiered in his solo exhibition at Eva Presenhuber, Zurich last month (it is on view through July 22), and it juxtaposes these rhythmic, unforgiving fracking machines against the voices from the people who coexist among them."

The Wing – "Paysage" Consortium Museum, Dijon, France Institutional Exhibition July 1, 2023 – January 28, 2024

A brand-new project called “The Wing” occupies the first floor of the Consortium Museum. This space is usually reserved for temporary exhibitions of the collection. The Consortium Museum's directors have given this "wing" of the structure to two artists, Tobias Pils (b. 1971, Austria) and Joe Bradley (b. 1975, USA), who have strong ties to the art center and have previously exhibited there. The "Paysage" exhibition was the result of these two painters becoming curators. It pulls together pieces from their own collections by artists whose discreet careers have been characterized as "folkart," "outsider," and other vague terms. Hans Kruckenhauser, an Austrian painter who lived from 1940 until 2017, is the subject of Tobias Pils's current project. Joe Bradley has given prominence to the prosperous landscapes painted by Alyne Harris (1943, USA) from her rural home in Florida.

Having dissected ideological, structural, and philosophical underpinnings of architecture, construction, and Minimalist sculpture throughout his career, Tuazon’s inauguration of his ongoing “Water School” in 2016 marked a turn toward more explicitly incorporating activist themes and strategies.

Doug Aitken’s latest work, HOWL, is a 15-minute, five-channel film about an unnamed town in the American West. It’s filled with epic aerial shots of oil wells and daily life in the town, along with short excerpts from interviews with some of its residents. Those interviews take on an eerie meaning as their words echo and reverberate. It is on view at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich, Maag Areal through July 22, 2023.

Right This Way Alice Goldwin, Doris Press Press May 31, 2023

Alice Goldwin reviewed Shara Hughes exhibition in Aalborg: "Known for her “invented landscapes,” Hughes’ paintings are not simply fantasy—they linger in the residue of memories and experiences. For this reason, Hughes’ paintings feel innately personal and human, though there are no actual people to be found."

Mister Neutral by Martin Herbert, Mousse Magazine On Schnyderian Art by Patrick Frey, Mousse Magazine Press May 2023

Mister Neutral: Martin Herbert investigates what lies behind the constructed guise of the amateur, the craftsman, the style-less dabbler, the cross maker, defining Jean-Frédéric Schnyder as a man of quietly huge ambitions who planned, up front, to outrun all of us while embracing a world full of difference and contradiction, of beauty and banality and brutality, leaving a trail of clues in his wake.

On Schnyderian Art: Originally published in 1990 in the pages of Parkett, this essay by Patrick Frey is an ode to the greatness of Jean-Frédéric Schnyder and his art—a mixture of trueness to life and a profoundly skeptical intelligence.

Life in the Abstract Longhouse Reserve, East Hampton, NY Institutional Exhibition April 1 – December 31, 2023

Over the past ten years, Kahn has examined the spatial relationship between painting and sculpture to construct a visual vocabulary of representational and abstract forms that integrate formal concerns with materials from everyday life. His new works are playful narrative compositions with oversized figurative icons taken from domestic life. The deep, rusted red tone of the sculptures is a result of the natural weathering process of Cor-Ten steel, contrasting with the lush green foliage the LongHouse garden. The series was previously on view at City Hall Park, New York. In June 2023, two sculptures are shown at Art Basel Parcours 2023.

Celebrating the Museum’s 125th anniversary, this landmark exhibition honors the East End’s rich artistic legacy and brings greater attention to major artists practicing here today. Forty-one artists have selected works from the collection to be shown along with their own. Rondinone's contribution, the alphabet of my mothers and fathers, is made of twenty-six panels arranged as a grid on all four walls of the gallery. Each panel holds a set of preindustrial farming and kitchen tools collected by the artist in the past three years from different farms and garage sales on Long Island.

Sunrise. East Städel Museum, Frankfurt, Germany Press June 28, 2023 – June 9, 2024

For his group of works Sunrise. East, Rondinone assigned a head with characteristic, highly reduced facial features to represent each calendar month. Larger than life and cast in shiny silver aluminium, the massive sculptural heads are reduced to their facial expressions: With mouths agape, they gaze from small eyes, from friendly and naïve to sceptical, from surprised to eerie. They trigger the most diverse associations, evoking ritual masks and ghosts, as well as the visual language of comics, emoticons, and memes. Visitors to the Städel Garden are invited to come face-to-face with all twelve creatures – and thus every month of the year – and experience the various joys, adversities, and emotions of an entire year in fast forward.

Now represented by Galerie Eva Presenhuber Announcement May 22, 2023

Galerie Eva Presenhuber is proud to announce the representation of London-based Greek artist Sofia Mitsola, alongside Pilar Corrias, London. Mitsola works primarily with painting to examine the female body. By looking at figures in ancient Egyptian and Greek sculpture, Japanese animation, and pornography, she composes her own mythological characters and places them in geometrical, stage-like compositions. These are painted in vibrant colors and are layered with washes and impasto. Her paintings often feature bare, larger-than-life characters who address the viewer with their direct gaze and invite them to look back. Through this act, Mitsola forms dynamic relationships between the painting and the viewer to establish new hierarchies and play with ideas of voyeurism, power, and control.

8. Biennial: Common Ground Kulturort Galerie Weiertal, Winterthur, Switzerland Institutional Exhibition May 21 – September 10, 2023

This year's Biennale Weiertal revolves around "common ground": it is about social and ecological justice, and how closely they are linked. This becomes clear with regard to the current global exploitation of people and nature, to the distribution of resources on the planet that is supposed to be our "common ground". With 17 artistic contributions, among which Sam Falls, the garden in the Weiertal becomes a place of reflection and perhaps even the nucleus of social utopias that are carried from here into the world.

Using light, color, shape, projection, sound, and almost no text, his intervention comes at a time when the Pergamon Museum, in which this collection is housed, is projected to close at the end of 2023. Gillick agreed to realize his project amidst difficult debates about how to deal with these buildings and the fraught colonial histories they house, about which he spoke to Jörg Heiser.

"[...] These paintings are time. They take it and give it away. They move toward the viewer and away with him. They transform themselves in him for it is he who shifts them into a subjective shade of time and recreates them. And yet they continue to exist, indeed by simply existing they are the most basic form of dialogue. A dialogue that never demands affirmation nor negation, but decision - even if without compassion, for this picture in this moment, that is, in time! [...]"

Sleep, Death’s Own Brother The George Economou Collection, Athens, Greece Institutional Exhibition June 18, 2023 – March 2024

Titled after a line from Hesiod’s eighth-century BC epic poem Theogony (“Harmful Night, veiled in dusky fog, carries in her arms Sleep, Death’s own brother”), this new exhibition by Steven Shearer revolves around this uneasy proximity (“brotherhood”) between death and sleep, a recurring trope in Shearer’s art. Built around the George Economou Collection’s substantial holdings of Steven Shearer’s work in painting and printed matter, Sleep, Death’s Own Brother proposes an in-depth look at the oeuvre of this Vancouver-based artist from the transgressive thematic perspective of the lifeless body, which is sometimes truly, sometimes only seemingly dead.

John Giorno’s vision for a shared, open-access repository of information was groundbreaking in a pre-digital world. Dial-A-Poem was first presented at MoMA in the 1970 exhibition Information, organized by Kynaston McShine. Galvanized by social movements, including opposition to the Vietnam War, Giorno incorporated numerous works by radical poets and political activists. This exhibition features notes and documentation that illustrate how he originally arranged the poems, as well as phones containing 200 randomized poems selected by the artist in 2012 from his archive of thousands.

Tschabalala Self is the latest artist to unveil a new window display at the Hermès flagship boutique on Madison Avenue, New York, as part of the house’s historic Vitrine d’artiste programme. Hermès artistic window displays first began in the 1930s in Paris with the work of Annie Beaumel, a young sales assistant from the glove department, whose conceptual displays pioneered the use of shop windows as a space for artistic expression and exhibition. Tschabalala’s vignette offers shoppers and passersby a glimpse into an intimate moment, with her chorus of characters leisurely enjoying their familiar, albeit uncanny, environment, which Self has furnished with the trappings of an everyday home.

The exhibition paints a polyphonic picture of the mutual penetration of body and technology: it addresses the often violent interdependence of humans on their technological surroundings and opposes any promises of salvation through trans-humanistic progress. Simultaneously, it opens up spaces of possibility in which dual-istic taxonomies can be overcome in favor of a networked and interdependent existence. With a contribution by Matthew Angelo Harrison

ON STAGE - Kunst als Bühne mumok, Vienna, Austria Institutional Exhibition March 15, 2023 – January 14, 2024

The exhibition ON STAGE explores the various theatrical and stage-related forms of expression in art since the 1960s, when a neo-avant-garde critical of tradition began focusing on performative and actionist art forms that endowed artists with a stage-like presence, often in front of an audience. The Viennese Actionism with its provocative and time-critical theatricality is just as much a part of this as the Vienna Group, whose literary cabaret stands firmly in the tradition of Dadaist theater, or the Fluxus-Movement with its media crossovers. The exhibition shows 150 works and work series, among them a painting by Tobias Pils, most of which are culled from the holdings of the mumok collection.

As the signs that we need to rethink the polarity between nature and culture are multiplying, the exhibition “Nature Humaine – Humaine Nature” invites us to explore the complex relationship between humanity and nature. Although the fourteen artists seem to share the desire to foreground the urgent issues we face and to rethink our behaviours, they engage with different realms. Their works, including sculptures, drawings and videos, capture apparently bucolic elements or evoke the disastrous effects of humanity’s domination over the rest of the living world.

The resulting exhibition consists of imaginatively calibrated vignettes of paintings and fashion, which celebrate glamour, beauty, fantasy, and the occult through the eyes of two singular yet overlapping perceptions. The title references the mid-century high society women who Truman Capote dubbed the “Swans”.

Pioneer (2023), a new sculptural work by Tschabalala Self, is now on view in this year’s Desert X, the recurring exhibition that activates desert locations through site-specific installations across the Coachella Valley. For most, the expansiveness and freedom of the American West is inextricably tied to the Stetsoned archetype. Forgoing the forefathers, Self’s Pioneer is a monument built in homage to the collective foremothers of contemporary America — the largely unidentified Native and African American women whose bodies and labour allowed for American expansionism and growth. It stands as a visual representation of their birthright and place within the American landscape.

The Close of Day SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia Institutional Exhibition February 28 – August 21, 2023

Chase Hall interrogates the realities of race in America through innovative figurative painting techniques and iconography that engage the past and the present. Using coffee grounds as pigment on raw cotton canvases, Hall varies the levels of coarseness and fineness of the bean to achieve a range of tonal values, metaphorically articulating a non-monolithic Black experience and evoking his biracial hybridity. The artist’s first solo museum exhibition brings together new paintings and an impressive installation featuring a century-old, self-playing Wurlitzer organ ensconced in a brick room, evoking the museum’s historic structure — and the breath and memory of those who created it.

The artist is one of the most internationally renowned representatives of contemporary Austrian art. Since his artistic beginnings in the Neo Geo movement of the 1980s, he has developed a stringent oeuvre characterized by radical reduction and precision. His works reveal borrowings from constructivist-concrete traditions as well as an interest in the abstraction of form, which plays an essential role in the creation of pictograms and similar pictorial signs.

Since 2008 he has articulated much of his work through the idea of Black Dada, an ever-evolving inquiry into the relationship between Blackness, abstraction, and the avant-garde. In his paintings, drawings, and other works, a visual philosophy of incomplete postulates emerges, flattening the distinctions between legibility and abstraction, past and present, familiar and strange. Curated by Marianne Dobner.

WE ARE POEMS embodies the artist's fascination with poetry emphasizing the subjective, the irrational, the emotional. The Swiss-born, New York-based artist believes that poetry-like art-needs no explanation, no thinking, but rather demands simply to be felt. Creative Director Albert Kriemler has selected this artwork as a symbol for the self-evident sensuality of Akris clothes and as a perfect representation for the 100 year anniversary of the fashion house.
