Matt Paweski “Sculpture” at Herald St, London

by mousse

September 23~2014


Ricky Swallow: Part of my thinking coming to your studio was this idea of sculptural ingredients, what makes a Matt Paweski? The material structure of these sculptures hasn’t changed much in the last few years, yet the forms have really evolved. What would you say about your decision to limit the amount of materials or ingredients that go into a sculpture? It seems like you’ve always worked within certain material parameters, whether that’s the gauge of the metal, just metal, wood, rivets…like that’s your toolkit or something.

Mariam Suhail “Accidental Excavations” at Grey Noise, Dubai

by mousse

September 20~2014

Suhail’s work stems from the incidental, undocumented minutia of conversations, media, culture, and the everyday. She employs language from these sources to dissect and re-present what may exist in the spaces between exchanges, ideas, historical events and daily occurrences, resulting in works in sculpture, video, digital images, text and drawing.

“Coming to Reality” at Futura Project, Prague

by mousse

September 19~2014

Where to find an exit from the transcendent ego, Descartes’ infamous Cogito ergo sum? How to see a turn from consciousness grounded in Kant’s “I”, the One as analytic selfconsciousness becoming a systemic rational?

by mousse

September 17~2014

Jessica Silverman Gallery is pleased to present “Promises to Pay in Solid Substance,” a solo exhibition by Hugh Scott-Douglas, which includes three new bodies of work, respectively titled “Economist,” “Amazon.com,” and “Heavy Images,” as well as the artist’s “Screentones,” which are making their American debut. In addition to reflecting on authorship and economic systems, the four series are bound together by their exploration of the complex dynamics between the materiality of old-school images and the spectral-digital way that images circulate today.

“Histórias Mestiças” at Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Pinheiros

by mousse

September 16~2014

“Histórias Mestiças” comes as a result of more than two years of research by curators Adriano Pedrosa e Lilia Schwarcz and the enthusiasm of Instituto´s director Ricardo Ohtake, who was interested in having an exhibition parallel to the 31st Bienal de São Paulo containing a new and profound research about the originating factors of the Brazilian people: the matter of miscegenation and it’s impact on artistic production.

“Permanent Playfulness”, Paulo Nazareth, Lawrence Weiner, Tunga at Mendes Wood DM, São Paulo

by mousse

September 15~2014

Paulo Nazareth “Che Cherera”


In the show Che Cherera, (from the Kaiowa for “my name”) Paulo presents part of Notebooks of Africa1, a number of impressions of Africa from there here, of Africa from here there, and of our own Africa with its other developments. Different from the literal sense we can think of, the notebooks in Notebooks of Africa are not a publication, but a number of possibilities: works announced that may or may not materialize (at a given time and space), photographs, videos, reports, and other possible manifestations.
The project begins with a contemplative pilgrimage in the domestic space of the artist himself -the kitchen, the house, the yard, the community where he lives with his family and neighbors (Palmital), and extends to other lands.

Equipe3 “1973-2014” at the Solar da Marquesa, São Paulo

by mousse

September 15~2014

In October 1973, Francisco Iñarra (1947-2009), Lydia Okumura (1948) and Genilson Soares (1940) participated, as Equipe3, in the XII Bienal Internacional de São Paulo. They described their work, Pontos de Vista (Points of View), as “a game of mutual interference.” Taking the space allocated to them as a starting point, the three artists set out to explore the dynamics between individual and collective production, and to transform their section of the Bienal into a space between reality and illusion.

Allison Katz “Rumours, Echoes” at Boatos Fine Arts, São Paulo

by mousse

September 14~2014

BFA Boatos is pleased to announce the opening of the gallery with “Rumours, Echoes”, the first exhibition in Brazil by Allison Katz. Comprised of paintings, an installation of ceramic works and announcement posters, the exhibition is populated by some of the recurring motifs in Katz’s practice: black pears, strawberries, monkeys, noses. Over the years, the artist has been continuously recycling these images, thus creating a particular visual lexicon in which they function as specific signs in an invented language.

Equipe3 “contra o estado das coisas – anos 70” at Galeria Jaqueline Martins

by mousse

September 14~2014

During the 1970s, Lydia Okumura (1948), Genilson Soares (1940) and Francisco Iñarra (1947-2009) shared individual efforts in collective actions. Between 1970 and 1974, they worked under the name Equipe3 (Group 3), and later—when Okumura moved to New York—, Soares and Iñarra formed a partnership called Arte/Ação (Art/Action), and worked together until 1977.

Thiago Rocha Pitta “Ocean/Atlas” at Galeria Millan, São Paulo

by mousse

September 13~2014

In his new exhibition at Galeria Millan, Thiago Rocha Pitta presents a never-before-seen video, as well as previously exhibited pieces that relate to this new work. The art piece that gives name to the exhibition, Ocean / Atlas, was created during an artistic residency in Norway in 2014, through the Circulating Air program. The artist appropriates a mythological figure to name and create a work that explores issues that are present in his work as a whole, like an extended experience of temporality and the limits of the relationship that man can establish with nature.

“Unerasable Memories – A Historic Look at the Videobrasil Collection” at Sesc Pompeia, São Paulo

by mousse

September 12~2014

From the “discovery” of Brazil by the Portuguese to the military coup d’état in Chile, including the September 11 attacks in the US, the Tiananmen Square Massacre in China, and the civil war in Lebanon… There are many ways one could recount—or attempt to erase—stories that are kept alive through the sensitivity and the art of myriad artists from those areas.The show “Unerasable Memories – A Historic Look at the Videobrasil Collection” features pieces that help retrieve events and conflicts often interpreted based on the official versions of those who came out the victors, yet still resist in personal narratives made public through art.

Carlito Carvalhosa “Precaução de contato” at Galeria Nara Roesler, São Paulo

by mousse

September 11~2014

Carlito Carvalhosa has his first solo exhibition at Galeria Nara Roesler, featuring a mega installation especially designed for the gallery’s facilities. The piece consists of old wooden lighting posts suspended throughout the venue, combined with glass pieces scattered on the floor. At some points, the logs go across the walls, which help keep them up; at other places, they are kept hanging by the intersections of two or more posts.

Paulo Bruscky “Artist Books and Films, 1970 – 2013” at Galeria Nara Roesler, São Paulo

by mousse

September 11~2014

From the early urban interventions challenging the role of art within an authoritarian military government, to highly experimental works using medical, communication and reproduction technologies, Paulo Bruscky occupies a formidable place in Brazilian art history.  Known for his active involvement in the postal art movement (arte correio) and for the dynamic relationships he forged with international artists including Fluxus and Gutai artists working in New York, Europe and Japan, Bruscky was an artist-provcateur who used art as a means to fiercely challenge the status quo.

“Postcodes: Kind” at Coletor, São Paulo

by mousse

September 11~2014

In a moment they bent into arcades, like Roman aqueducts.

A long cornice was next formed at the top, and above it rose innumerable castles, all perfectly alike; these again changed into towers, which were shortly after lost in colonnades, then windows, and at last ended in pines, cypresses and other trees.
