Tuesday 29 October, 7:30 PM

On the occasion of Marnie Weber and Justin John Greene’s exhibition at Simon Lee Gallery New York, we are pleased to invite you to a Hallowe’en walkthrough with your docents for the evening: writer Dean Kissick and artist and writer Paige K. Bradley.

Too many shows these days are allowed to pass into that good night, sans recognition or echo from the chorus. We say no more! Journey uptown for an evening of deep iconographic contemplation and excavation of the clues and crumbs in these paintings, which may guide us towards the new folklore, pagan rituals, and ghosts—among other specters—that haunt us, but perhaps more importantly haunt Los Angeles, a city at the dark heart of the 21st-century American gothic. And really what is art about, if not worship of powers we can’t control, a chilling sense of unease, and the conspiracy that hides in plain sight as we recklessly speed by it?

David H. Koch Theater New York, New York
27 October, 2019, 20:00 PM

Jessica Lang's Garden Blue combines the beauty of nature and dance. The striking costumes and interactive sets were designed by Brooklyn artist Sarah Crowner. This unique collaboration is described as “sculptural and lyrical” by DanceTabs’s Marina Harss.

Sarah Crowner's inspiration for the set of Garden Blue was a Samara, also known as a Maple Seed and Helicopter Pod. A samara is a type of dry fruit where one seed is surrounded by double-winged papery tissue that catches wind and helps carry the seed away from the tree.

Eric N. Mack: In austerity, stripped from its support and worn as a sarong

Eric N. Mack
The Power Station, Dallas, TX
25 October - 13 December, 2019

The compositions of Eric N. Mack are gleaned from the wardrobe. The support (a body) is absent. Materials are configured to linger in space. Collaged textiles are arranged with balletic precision. Aspirational forms emanate. Arrangements are irrational and tentative. Choreographed elements are grafted into space and suspend from architecture. Billowing assemblages are accessed from a range of perspectives, around and under sewn silhouettes. The X, Y, Z axis distorts into forms of expression, violating systems of symmetry. Flattened panels of varied pattern and texture create collapsible volumes. The material palette is holed, dyed, manipulated, sometimes painted onto. Its utility function temporarily drained. Not quite painting or sculpture, the artwork is radically transient. The compositions pirouette out from the rectilinear constraints of painting into a space of auxiliary.

17 October - 17 November, 2019

Complementing the Donaueschingen Music Festival, Museum Art.Plus is showing works by Angela Bulloch (b.1966) in the 2-Raum. Bulloch, who is recognised as one of the so-called ‘Young British Artists' who shook up the British art world in the 1990s, works in a wide range of media. Her main interest are systems, patterns and rules. In Donaueschingen, the artist presents a number of sound-activated drawing machines that respond to the sound of music. Although viewers are not privy to the sound, they witness the visualisation of music.

Michelangelo Pistoletto
Paris
5 October, 2019

For this 18th edition of the Nuit Blanche in Paris, Thanks for Nothing invites to the City of Science and Industry a major figure of contemporary art: the Italian Michelangelo Pistoletto , famous for its founding inscription in the movement arte povera from the 60's as well as for his participative works. On the evening of October 5, the artist will perform two more of his performances that will engage visitors: the first,  Sculpture Walk , will invite the public to roll in space a sphere made of compressed newspapers, while Third Paradise will encourage them to form a human chain outdoors, as a collaborative and symbolic drive for solidarity. The ecological stake of the latter is explicit: for each participant in the performance, a tree will be planted. 500 people are invited to participate in the event, which can be registered now by clicking on this link

Angela Bulloch’s new site-specific installation for MAAT’s Oval Gallery combines the artist’s research on three-dimensional perception, time and virtuality with the spatial and acoustic characteristics of this singular exhibition space. The project will include a set of new video works, integrating multiple projections, virtual reality, avatars and 3D animations. The installation also features some of the artist’s most iconic pieces, such as her geometric stacked columns and wall paintings, besides works that explore  3D animation, interpassivity, role playing and matters of conscience. In the same line of previous interventions at the Oval Gallery, Angela Bulloch now brings to this space a unique proposition which integrates new digital technology and contemporary art.

Marnie Weber
Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, CA
21 June - 3 November, 2019

Marnie Weber emerged in Los Angeles’s punk music and performance art scene of the 1980s, and has since become known for installations in which sculpture, film, music, costuming, and collage come together to form whole, fantastical worlds. Weber’s homespun, haunted-house aesthetic evokes the gothic side of American folkloric traditions, imparting a sense of old-time magic to narratives of lost innocence. Her dream-like films feature a cast of motley characters, including animals, monsters, trees, and clowns, with supernatural female protagonists at their centers. In the artist’s macabre fairy tales, these figures navigate uncanny landscapes on journeys of transformation.

Paulina Ołowska
Museum on the Vistula, Warsaw
7 June - 11 August, 2019

The exhibition presents the work of Polish artists, among them Paulina Ołowska, in the broader context of international women’s painting, which takes on the challenge of representing the intensity of the external and internal worlds. The invited artists propose an affirmative version of womanhood by endowing their bodies with agency, autonomy and power of self-determination. The eponymous paint becomes a visceral, sticky matter that leads us towards the point where all meanings collapse. It blurs the categories of power and objectification, thus provoking the question of when do we look, and when do we look away?

The Pompidou Center revisits the work of Bernard Frize, an essential French painter of the international art scene, since its beginnings in 1977. Known for its abstract conceptual paintings, during the 1980s, Frize incorporates figurative elements into his practice and also interested in photography. 

Six themes structure the course of Oulipian inspiration and deliberately paradoxical: "With unreason, without effort, with system, without system, with mastery, without stoppping."

Teatro Camões, Lisbon
16 - 19 May, 2019

Annette, Adele, and Lee is the title of the new ballet by Rui Lopes Graça and João Penalva for the National Ballet of Portugal. 

The three proper names of the title may suggest a love triangle, but this is not a narrative ballet. They are, in fact, the names of three tap dance dancers recorded in a London sound studio in order to produce the material with which David Cunningham was to compose the sound for this ballet.

The classical ballet trained dancers we see dance to the sound of their tap dancing peers. As for these, we can only imagine them and wonder what they may look like. However, the thirty minutes of great complexity of sound and choreographic patterns in which their presence is continuous will make their names memorable.

It could be said that Annette, Adele, and Lee is, after all, a story of dancers.

“What you are basically deep deep down, far, far in, is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself” - Alan Watts

Deep deep down, far far in (and out) is an exhibition curated by Sérgio Fazenda Rodrigues, that presents a selection of sixteen works by twelve artists, among them João Penalva, all belonging to the collection of the Fundação Leal Rios, arranged along two floors and four environments. Deepening the relationship between two different movements, one introspective and the other expansive, the notion of focus shares the stage with the idea of inclusiveness, and each work calls for both an individual and a collective reading.

11 May – 24 November, 2019

On the occasion of the 58th edition of the Venice Art Biennale, a major retrospective of Korean artist Yun Hyong-keun (1928 – 2007) will be presented at Palazzo Fortuny by the MMCA (National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea) and MUVE (Civic Museums of Venice). The exhibition will be the first international retrospective show of the artist since his death in 2007 and follows a critically-acclaimed exhibition of his work at MMCA Seoul. The show will focus on Yun’s extraordinary life and work and will present 55 of Yun’s works that span his entire career. One of the highlights of the exhibition will be a meticulous reproduction of Yun’s atelier which will include outstanding works by other artists (Kim Whanki, Jeon Roe-jin and Choi Jongtae), which Yun had in his studio. While recognising his role in the development of Dansaekhwa, this retrospective aims to examine Yun's work in its own right and from a new perspective.

Donna Huanca
Copenhagen Contemporary, Copenhagen, Denmark
22 March - 01 September, 2019

LENGUA LLORONA is Donna Huanca’s first solo exhibition in Scandinavia. Presented as a site-specific multimedia installation, Huanca brings together painting, sculpture, scent, sound, and performance. The exhibition is organised as coherent organic landscape of islands made of bone-white sand and populated by sixteen monumental oil paintings, which are presented with a series of totem-like steel sculptures.

During the exhibition period, a series of eight performances will activate the exhibition. The models, as Huanca calls her performers, are decorated with paint, pigment, and textiles. Like living paintings, they populate the installation leaving physical body marks on the floor and walls, thus producing a lasting transformation of the space.

Paulina Olowska
Zachęta – National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, Poland
19 March - 23 June, 2019

Puppets: Theater, Film, Politics, situates puppet theatre within the field of art history and within the broader context of the artistic, social, and political changes taking place in Poland in the 1950s and 1960s. The presentation of selected works, artists, and creative hubs, among them Paulina Olowska, has been woven around concepts such as anthropology of the body, pedagogy, or politics. The show’s authors broaden the reflection on the meanings and functions of puppets, asking about their political dimension. They exemplify diverse strategies of their use — from the exploitation of the propaganda repertoire to caricatural and derisive representations of ideological opponents – while highlighting their dangerous potential.

Josephine Pryde

17 March - 15 June, 2019

Today, when technology seems utterly smooth and weightless—composed of invisible waves, wireless signals, abstract codes—New Order explores the ways in which these systems are still stubbornly tied to the physical world and looks at the ways in which contemporary artists, among them Josephine Pryde, use—and misuse—tools and forms. The show features works made since the turn of the millennium that push and challenge the boundaries of technology: upending systems, experimenting with materials, and ultimately inventing novel techniques and substances.

2 March - 2 June, 2019

Heimo Zobernig has developed, for the atrium of the Albertinum, a walk-in spatial installation composed of colored surfaces. Its design harkens back to three sketches by the artist Piet Mondrian, made for a room in the villa of the Dresden art collector Ida BienertFor the walls of the room, Mondrian forsaw a grid that should be painted with yellow, blue, red, and grey color fields. Zobernig creates a spatially and sculpturally experience and transfers this foundational design principle of Mondrian into a walk-in cube that corresponds to the original dimensions of the room and is composed of a construction of nested wooden panels.

Marnie Weber
Pasadena City College, CA
19 February - 12 April, 2019

Marnie Weber’s centralizing embrace of the societal fringe mimics our globalized reassessment of the dominant point of view, debunking the old norm for a new model where the previously peripheral moves to center stage. Her world of freaky side-show circus characters, runaway waifs and mobile home denizens are counter-culture oddities recast as empowered models of defiantly capable heroes, or at least battered survivors.

Kaleidoscope will take over the entire surface of Spazio Maiocchi in Milan, curating a multimedia experience which brings together a diverse selection of international artists featured in the magazine’s newly-released Fall/Winter issue. After a two-month residency at Spazio Maiocchi, American artist Eric N. Mack allows visitors into his temporary studio, presenting it as an installation and a glimpse into his creative process. A language of the suspended pile, the messy space, of bodies leaving traces behind, the artist’s shamanic combinations of textile, newspaper pages and fragments of everyday objects have an architectural, even Baroque ambition—his painterly gestures sublimated into a “ballad of the black mundane.”

Live portrait painting by Joel Mesler

Simon Lee Gallery, London
Friday 20 April and Saturday 21 April, 12 – 5pm.

On the occasion of the exhibition, and for two days only, Joel Mesler will be carrying out live portrait painting at the gallery, offering visitors the unique opportunity to engage with his practice in a very active and personal way. The 12 x 9 in. acrylic on canvas portraits will be painted by Mesler live in the gallery space, and available to buy for £200 each. With his trademark wit and idiosyncratic figurative style, the portraits will be composed with an economy of gesture and palette that is intrinsic to his work. Contrary to the works in the exhibition that are autobiographical and self-reflective, here Mesler turns his attention to the subject of the sitter.
