“Great Expectations: The Sense of the Future in the Art of the Sixties” at Cortesi Contemporary, Lugano

by mousse

November 26~2014

“Great Expectations: The Sense of the Future in the Art of the Sixties” tries to analyze and convey the mood of anticipation about the immediate future experienced by a generation of artists that emerged in this decade. Curated by Marco Meneguzzo, the exhibition sets off from the idea that 1960 marked a crucial turning point in the vision of the future and of art’s new priorities, immediately taken up by the artists most attuned to the issue.

Tatsuo Miyajima “KU” at Lisson Gallery, Milan

by mousse

November 25~2014

“Is death really nothing?”

Tatsuo Miyajima’s first solo exhibition in Milan revolves around a new body of work that continues his pioneering use of technology in sculptural assemblage and interactive installations. The show is titled “KU”, a term that signifies “empty” in Japanese, but which also stands in for the numerical starting point, zero, which has always represented a null state or death for the artist and has consequently not featured in his life-affirming work. For the first time in his career-long exploration of numerology and symbolism, Miyajima is questioning whether there is anything more to this nothingness, taking his cue from the Buddhist tenet that describes death as a period of rest or preparation for the next life.

by mousse

November 24~2014

In his first museum show in Dallas, Piotr Uklanski presents a selection of works from his “blood” or “ink drop” paintings—a premier presentation of an ongoing series that began in 2007. While abstract, the works reflect numerous pop culture references that echo throughout Uklanski’s practice, such as the blood-soaked exploitation thriller films of Dario Argento and the Spaghetti Westerns of the 1960’s.

Luigi Ontani “er” “SIMULÀCRUM” “amò” at GAMeC, Bergamo

by mousse

November 23~2014

GAMeC – Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Bergamo is hosting an important solo show by Luigi Ontani, one of the most representative artists on the international panorama of the past forty years.

He is a versatile figure who has been present on the art scene since the Sixties. In the early Seventies he began to participate in and then make a name for himself in the contemporary artistic debate with his tableaux vivants: dressed or, rather, disguised performances; living iconographies in which Ontani–transformed and masked–impersonates historical, mythological, literary and popular figures, including Pinocchio, Dante Alighieri, Giuseppe Garibaldi, Caravaggio’s St Paul, Guercino’s St Luke and Michelangelo’s Prigioni.

Maurizio Nannucci at Hofstätter Projekte, Vienna

by mousse

November 22~2014

The general theme of Hofstätter Projekte precisely fits a neon work Maurizio Nannucci installed on the facade of the Altes Museum Berlin in 2005: ALL ART HAS BEEN CONTEMPORARY. In his interpretation of this relatively wide programmatic bracket and the conception of an according exhibition at Hofstätter Projekte—curated by Edelbert Köb—Nannucci was granted the greatest possible freedom, as will be subsequent artists exhibiting at this new space.

Alfred Boman “SALES EXECUTIVE SEX GOBLIN” at Union Pacific, London

by mousse

November 21~2014

lt’s interesting how the serious early work of most artists tends tobe achromatic—early Warhol and Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg, Flavin, Stella, Cubism. Broadway Boogie-Woogie could only be late Mondrian! When you‘re trying to make a statement there is no placefor color! Poor Picasso! Poor Matisse! The uncomfortable truth isthat an artist like Picasso provides the dirt in which an artist likeDuchamp grows. And Matisse? That’s the fertilizer. As for my saladdays, I was notorious when I was a student for questioning theteachers. So much so, in fact, that I was put on the faculty at theage of twenty-two! Of course I was asked “what did you do before?” Is the physically exhibited presence of a work the only criterion forits existence?? (Being butthurt at ignorance is the natural reactionof un-ignorant human brains…) It isn‘t, if you know anything about Conceptual Arhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhgrrrakka kkakkakkakkakkakkakkakkakkakk kkakka akk………

Geoffrey Farmer “Cut nothing, cut parts, cut the whole, cut the order of time.” at Casey Kaplan, New York

by mousse

November 19~2014

Kathy Acker rang my head like a bell.

It happened sometime in the spring of 1990, while she was reading out loud, a passage to our class from Gertrude Stein’s 1914 book Tender Buttons.

I had just read it myself and thought little of it. In fact I clearly remember not liking it.
