Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt

29.1.2020 – 19.30h

 

For more than six years, the SCHIRN has served as a forum for national and international film­makers and video artists. Under the heading Double Feature, the latter present a work from their own oeuvre, followed by their favorite film. Already, films and videos by more than 50 guests have been shown. Double Feature is designed as a platform for various trends and forms of expression in film and video production which, with the dawn of digitization if not before, is now considered an art form in its own right. On the last Wednesday of every month and in conversation with the curators Katharina Dohm, Matthias Ulrich and guest curators, the invited artists provide extensive insight into their creative work, especially their interest in film.

 

ANNIKA KAHRS

 

Sound as a communications tool forms a central theme in the work of Annika Kahrs. Her performances, films, photo series and installations are often based on musical productions conceived as playful experimental setups. Music as a verbal form of expression functions at the same time as an outlet and a metaphor in all of this. At the Schirn, the artist will be showing her film the lord loves changes, it’s one of his greatest delusions (2018, 16 Min.), in which she adapts two pieces by American composer Julius Eastman.

Inauguració 17.1 – 20h

Comissariat: Joana Hurtado Matheu

 

Tretze artistes contemporànies s’apleguen en un mateix espai, sota el comissariat de Joana Hurtado Matheu. El relat conceptual d’aquesta proposta és evidenciar a través de les peces de cadascuna de les artistes, la manca d’eficiència que atribuïm al llenguatge com a sistema de comunicació –i qui diu llenguatge diu imatge. Cada representació ve determinada per la perspectiva cultural, social i emocional de cadascú. No sabem com són les coses, només sabem com les percebem i interpretem. Sovint per anar massa de pressa, caiem en descripcions pobres; altres vegades, pensaments i llengua se’ns enreden i en surten lectures confuses. Comprenem així que hi ha moltes coses que costen de dir amb les paraules que tenim, que una imprecisió latent i incontrolable ens acompanya. El veritable entrebanc, doncs, no és haver topat amb la vaguetat de les paraules, sinó haver confiat en la seva precisió.

Elogi del malentès explora justament la diferència, la diferència que ens obliga a explorar críticament les convencions que regeixen la nostra relació amb l’entorn. En un temps de simplificació salvatge i esforç mínim, confiar-nos a la pluralitat i complexitat del malentès per contradir el que ja ha estat dit, dat i beneït, suposa crear un espai de resistència compartida que no passa per l’imperatiu del resultat.

Elogi del malentès és una exposició itinerant del Programa d’Arts Visuals de l’Oficina de Difusió Artística (ODA) de la Diputació de Barcelona en col·laboració amb l’Ajuntament de Vilafranca.

 

Divendres, 17 de gener a les 20h. Inauguració i visita comentada a càrrec de Joana Hurtado Matheu, comissària de l’exposició.

De Vishal, Haarlem, The Netherlands

11.1 – 9.2.2020

 

Van 11 januari tot en met 9 februari is in De Vishal de tentoonstelling Camino del deseo te zien. Twee Spaanse en twee Nederlandse kunstenaars tonen video’s, tekeningen, foto’s en installaties waarin de schoonheid en het absurde van het alledaagse worden benadrukt door ingrepen, die een vervreemdend effect opleveren.

 

De tentoonstelling is gebaseerd op visuele associaties en affiniteiten, tegenstelling en dialoog. De vier kunstenaars stappen over de grenzen van hun discipline heen door dingen om te draaien, binnenstebuiten te keren, op hun kop te zetten, te verdubbelen, uit hun verband te halen en weer samen te voegen.

 

Ze hebben allemaal een band met Barcelona. Bij het samenstellen van de tentoonstelling liet kunstenaar-curator Irene van de Mheen zich leiden door beeldassociaties, gedeelde affiniteiten, herkenning en vriendschap. Het waarderen van elkaars werk schept een persoonlijke band.

 

Camino del deseo is Spaans voor ‘olifantenpaadje’. Een olifantenpaadje is een door mensen gaandeweg uitgesleten pad als alternatief voor een officiële, bestrate route. Zo kiezen ook kunstenaars steeds andere wegen, parallel aan of haaks op het bestaande pad, om te zien wat er dan gebeurt. De expositie is een uitnodiging om de werkelijkheid anders te bekijken.

Turner Contemporary, Kent

7.2 – 3.5.2020

Opening 6.2.2020, 18 – 20h, Speeches 18.30

 

The exhibition is curated by Hannah Collins and Paul Goodwin with Turner Contemporary.

 

From 7 February 2020, Turner Contemporary will showcase the work of artists and makers from the Alabama and surrounding states in We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South.

We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South is the first exhibition of its kind in the UK and reveals a little-known history shaped by the Civil Rights period in the 1950s and 60s.

It will bring together sculptural assemblages, paintings and quilts by more than 20 African American artists from Alabama and surrounding states. The artists represented in the exhibition lived through the Civil Rights struggle and its aftermath, often in conditions of poverty.  This art is characterised by the remaking and reuse of materials through necessity, custom, culture and innovation as well as a vital connection to place and nature.The exhibition also features Civil Rights music and documentary photographs that reveal the links between the art and its context.

Some works are in direct dialogue with this era of protest, while others evidence the longstanding impact of segregation and racial terror. Produced from the mid-20th century to the present, many of the artworks will be coming to Europe for the first time. In an era of worldwide protest on the streets, We Will Walk addresses issues of race, class and resistance through a diverse range of works developed outside of the mainstream.

Much of the work in We Will Walk draws on the tradition of the ‘Yard Show’, temporary outdoor environments made from salvaged materials. This includes the root sculptures of Bessie Harvey and Emmer Sewell’s iconic sculpture created outside her home in Marion County. The exhibition will see a series of quilts from the isolated hamlet of Gee’s Bend (known today as Boykin) in Alabama go on display in the UK for the first time. These world-famous quilts have a distinctive style, and are often made from recycling old clothing such as blue jeans. The exhibition also features guitars by Freeman Vines, including one made from the wood of an old hanging tree.  These artists turned impossible circumstances into innovative artworks.

Villa delle Rose, MAMbo, Bologna
18.1 – 22.3.2020
Inaugurazione: venerdì 17.1.2020 – 18h

 

Villa delle Rose prosegue l’attività di valorizzazione di artisti attivi nella scena internazionale proponendo, dal 18 gennaio al 22 marzo 2020, la prima personale in un’istituzione museale italiana di Antoni Muntadas (Barcellona 1942), dal titolo Muntadas. Interconnessioni, a cura di Cecilia Guida e Lorenzo Balbi.

 

Promossa da Istituzione Bologna Musei | MAMbo, in collaborazione con Artium, Centro-Museo Vasco de Arte Contemporáneo di Vitoria-Gasteiz, Álava, con la partnership della Fondazione Federico Zeri e il patrocinio del Dipartimento delle Arti dell’Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna, la mostra segue sul piano temporale la personale allestita nel museo basco d’arte contemporanea dal 4 ottobre 2019 al 12 gennaio 2020. Le due esposizioni gemelle si differenziano per il peculiare rapporto con gli spazi espositivi. L’allestimento di Bologna è stato pensato appositamente per la dimensione “domestica” della settecentesca Villa delle Rose, dando vita a un percorso che favorisce un rapporto intimo con il visitatore, a partire dall’avvertenza che lo accoglie all’entrata “Attenzione: la percezione richiede partecipazione”.

 

Muntadas. Interconnessioni è uno dei Main project di ART CITY Bologna 2020, il programma istituzionale di mostre, eventi e iniziative speciali promosso dal Comune di Bologna in collaborazione con BolognaFiere in occasione di Arte Fiera.

 

La mostra presenta un’analisi trasversale del lavoro dell’artista, che va dai primi anni Settanta a oggi, stabilendo nuovi campi di significato e relazioni puntuali tra i temi ricorrenti nella sua analisi interdisciplinare: la globalizzazione, il capitalismo transnazionale, la nozione di dispositivo, la relazione pubblico/privato, i rapporti tra monumenti e memoria, le “microfisiche” del potere, l’interrogazione dell’archivio, i processi della traduzione, la circolazione delle informazioni, l’immaginario politico veicolato dai media.

In occasione di Muntadas. Interconnessioni è stata realizzata una pubblicazione per Corraini Edizioni, con testi critici di Beatriz Herráez, Lorenzo Balbi, Cecilia Guida, Arturo fito Rodríguez Bornaetxea, Roberto Pinto e Gabriel Villota Toyos.
