kaufmann repetto new york is glad to announce Judith Hopf’s solo show “Cracking Nuts,” which marks the second articulation of kaufmann repetto’s exhibition series in New York.
Spanning video, performance, sculpture and installation, Judith Hopf’s practice aims to provoke gaps and openings in power relations and order, inserting slapstick humor, the domestic and the absurd into the space of art. Selfevident and seemingly infallible hierarchies are derided and overturned, favoring instead a spirit of nonconformity that questions our preconceptions and stereotypes. Using her immediate environment as a creative point of departure and vernacular, everyday objects and materials, Judith Hopf’s formal questions playfully translate into political and social ones.
The Kölnischer Kunstverein is pleased to present F.E.S.T.A., the Italian artist Pietro Roccasalva’s first solo exhibition in a German public institution. The show comprises both older and recent works by Roccasalva and provides a cross section of the different areas in which the artist works.
The exhibition Quand les formes sont attitudes gathers works whose manufacturing process can be likened to performance, while creating a permanent form. Those forms are linked to an attitude, in the broad sense of the word : an action, a process, or even an ideology. In this exhibition, the process induced by the realization of the works questions the rite or ritual, whether they are real, acted or fantasized, public or private. It also shows the performance from an unusual point of view : what endures as a work after its ephemeral realization ?
Galleria Monica de Cardenas is pleased to announce the exhibition “Drawing in Space”, in which are shown sculptures and installations by eight artists who have expanded drawing into real space since the 1950ies until today.
In 1971, Robert Overby went to a derelict, burned-out building in Los Angeles called the “Barclay House”, painted thick layers of latex rubber directly onto the building facades and architectural fragments, let the latex harden, and then peeled it off. The resulting serial castings recorded every bump, scratch and blemish on the house in meticulous detail, mapping out air vents, pipes, patch repairs, and grooves that marked the edges of the cladding.

Laura Bartlett Gallery is pleased to present The Walk…in green, our fourth solo exhibition with artist Becky Beasley.
Robert Walser’s relatively long short story, The Walk, is the story of a day in the form of a walk ending at nightfall. Along the way the story unfolds through domestic, urban and country landscapes. It is a kind of straight story (A to B), which nevertheless proceeds by a shaggy dog method (via C). It is a model for the exhibition.
The Modern Institute is delighted to present ‘Dirty Kitchen’, a solo exhibition of new works by Los Angeles based artist Kim Fisher.
Fisher’s works stem from a response to her living and working environment of Los Angeles, California. Utilising paint and text through a variety of media Fisher explores the effect time and heat has on materials within this climate, while simultaneously assembling an enquiry into the social and cultural influences of the region.

Nelson is best known for his large-scale installations, in which visitors move through immersive spaces of his invention.

For its new show, Art: Concept is glad to present Nathaniel Mellors’s work. This project has been set-up in collaboration with Gallery Monitor (Rome), which represents the artist, and is to be considered as the first of a series of exchange-projects between the two galleries. Born in 1974 in Doncaster (England), this artist, who lives and works between Los Angeles and Amsterdam, develops an art based on film-making; writing scripts as well as directing and editing them, and working closely with actors such as Patrick Kennedy and David Birkin. To these films, he adds works based on sculpture and photograms, such as the ones that can be seen in this show. His studio works incorporate humor, irreverence, the poetic and the absurd but to address themes of ownership, history, power, morality etc. By drawing inspiration from the techniques linked to cinematographic fictions, he inscribes his work within given contexts of the social reality that he questions and analyzes. He explores our tastes, morality, habits and the various ideas anchored in our collective memory.
A new exhibition of recent works by ten contemporary artists tracing a growing interest in the pollution and breakdown of systems and processes. Slippages and spillages, disruption and contamination characterise sculptural, film and installation works.
Collaboration is the most important component of Marinella Senatore’s concept of art. The Italian artist (*1977) involves thousands of people in her elaborate projects as producers, writers and in other roles to create, for example, parades, operas and radio programmes. She is not only concerned with triggering social processes but also with questioning concepts such as community and social responsibility, finding new narrative forms and ultimately in generating a collective memory through joint action. Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen is showing documentary material and the results of several of her projects, for instance in the form of films, and is launching a new particípative venture: Estman Radio.
From January 18th to March 31st the gallery Vera Munro presents new works on two floors. Dorner continues the very new group of objects, which he did for the first time in 2010, now with oil, acrylic and paint on wood.
