Exhibition: 14th September – 10th November

Exhibition Preview: 10th to 13th September

 

 

Pera Museum will host the 16th Istanbul Biennial, organized by Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV). The theme of the biennial, curated by French curator, author and academic Nicolas Bourriaud; is The Seventh Continent.

 

Pera Museum will be transformed into an anthropology museum of parallel worlds — a place for faux-archeology and artists who reinvent history. As part of the Istanbul Biennial, Pera Museum will exhibit the works of 13 artists that rediscover the past. The lists of artists include Anzo, Pia Arke, Charles Avery, Norman Daly, Ernst Haeckel, Evru/Zush, Sanam Khatibi, Melvin Moti, Glauco Rodrigues, Luigi Serafini, Paul Sietsema, Simon Starling, and Piotr Uklański.

 

The Seventh Continent describes art as a form of anthropology that explores the impact of humans, the ways they follow, the marks they leave behind, and their interaction with the non-human. The biennial takes its name from the colossal garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean, which is considered to be one of the most visible effects of the Anthropocene period alongside global warming. This mass, dubbed the “Seventh Continent” in popular science, is an aggregation of plastic weighing 7 million tonnes and covering an area of 3.4 million square kilometers. On occasion of the 16th Istanbul Biennial, this phenomenon of a man-made continent of garbage in the middle of the ocean will serve as a starting point for discussions and debates by artists, thinkers, anthropologists, and environmentalists on the current position of art against ecological challenges.

A good Story never started with a Glass of Milk’ is a polyphonic exhibition based around the idea of the anecdote. Instead of works of art, this show will gather oral material through a serie of public live meetings with the artists. However, it will not be a question of « telling » or « describing » pieces instead of showing them, nor is it about art at all. Maybe it’s not exactly an exhibition, but since art has always been about telling stories, it still counts.The anecdote is an archaic that gathered people together around the fire, around a meal. Brief and exemplary, the anecdote is a story that comes after the fact, that interprets reality and delivers a meaning, a secret. A collection of sensations, affects, reflections, images, it punctuates the language of the philosopher who uses it to reveal the complexity of a thought; it is a « savoir-dire », a theory in action, a mnemonic. (Definition borrowed from Claire de Ribaupierre, Anecdotes, JRP 2007)

Instituto Tomie Ohtake

Exhibition 25.04 – 26.05.2019

 

At the outset of the exhibition-cum-essay curated by Luise Malmaceda and Paulo Miyada to be held at Instituto Tomie Ohtake is the oeuvre of Miguel Bakun (1909-1963), an artist from Paraná, a state in southern Brazil. As the curators have noted, the event is meant to reflect on representation of landscapes in Brazil’s subtropical region that have “so often been sidelined by the eminently warm-climate, coastal beach imaginary of a country whose picture-postcard sites are mostly found north of the Tropic of Capricorn.”

 

Sponsored by Banco Barigüi, Grupo Barigüi, Tradener and Moageira Irati, the exhibition has been designed to feature, in unprecedented format in São Paulo, a large cutout from Bakun’s production contextualized in the history of Brazilian art. The exhibition comprises three large groups engaged in dialogue with the artist: one specifically covering landscapes from southern Brazil, in particular the state of Paraná, consisting of pieces by Alfredo Andersen (1869 – 1935), Bruno Lechowski (1887– 1941), Caio Reisewitz (1967 –) and Marcelo Moscheta (1976 –); another situating Bakun within Brazilian modernism together with Alberto da Veiga Guignard (1896 – 1962), Alfredo Volpi (1896 – 1988), Iberê Camargo (1914 – 1994) and José Pancetti (1902 – 1998); and a third group made up of contemporary artists who, like Bakun, found in landscape an inexhaustible source of investigation, as for example Marina Camargo (1980 –), Lucas Arruda (1983 –) and Fernando Lindote (1960 –).

In the course of the past decades the coexistence of the visual arts and music on an equal footing has resulted in a large number of artists whose work cannot be clearly allocated to only one of the two disciplines. Kunstmuseum Magdeburg presents these different themes concerning art and music by way of numerous examples from the fields of sculpture, installation and video in a major survey exhibition.

 

The title Ambitus means in music the vocal range of a voice or an instrument and stands for the range or the distance between the highest and the lowest note. In the exhibition AMBITUS. Art and music today. the range shows the diversity and variety of the participative artists and works of art.

 

Artists:

Werner Amann, Cory Arcangel, Eberhard Blum, Candice Breitz, Robbie Cornelissen and Kees Went, William Engelen, Jonas Englert, Douglas Henderson and David Henderson, Annika Kahrs, Rainer Kohlberger, Christina Kubisch, Kaffe Matthews, Bjørn Melhus, Michaela Melián, Haroon Mirza, People Like Us (Vicki Bennett), Ute Pleuger, Anri Sala, Marc Sabat and Mareike Yin-Yee Lee,  Yehudit Sasportas, Per Olaf Schmidt and Sebastian Neubauer, Richard T.

Enrique Martínez Celaya trabaja la pintura, que desarrolla desde la perspectiva del pensamiento científico, filosófico, poético e intelectual.

 

Su obra revela un interés constante en la experiencia y su representación, es una respuesta al mundo que le rodea, en especial a la naturaleza, al entorno del ser, y su percepción a través de temas que aparecen una y otra vez: el niño, el mar, árboles, montañas, animales, aves.

 

Enrique Martínez Celaya muestra en sus obras las posibilidades y las limitaciones de la propia representación. Sus pinturas son una vía poética que exploran nociones como el hermetismo, el simbolismo, el desplazamiento, la fragmentación, la integridad, el tiempo, la memoria y la identidad.

La carrera artística de Frederic Amat se remonta a principios de los años setenta.  Tras completar sus estudios de arquitectura y escenografía, se trasladó a México y posteriormente a Nueva York, donde exploraría las posibilidades del papel hecho a mano como material artístico. Sus viajes a Brasil, Egipto, Haití, Marruecos, han influido en una obra caracterizada por la investigación constante.  A lo largo de su carrera, Amat ha ido diversificando su repertorio plástico, su desarrollo ha pasado de líneas irregulares y colores vibrantes en sus primeros dibujos al expresionismo en sus posteriores obras.

 

La obra de Amat se resiste a una única forma de categorización ya que su concepción de la pintura lo ha llevado a integrar una multitud de lenguajes en su práctica artística, incluyendo pintura, dibujo, escultura, instalación, performance, ilustración de libros, vídeos, escenografías teatrales e intervenciones en espacios arquitectónicos.
