Takashi Murakami “Arhat Cycle” at Palazzo Reale, Milan

by mousse

July 31~2014

Palazzo Reale and the Comune di Milano is pleased to present the “Arhat Cycle” by Takashi Murakami. Curated by Francesco Bonami and organized by Blum & Poe and Kaikai Kiki, the “Arhat Cycle” is a quintessential offering of Murakami’s ability to conflate historical, contemporary, and futuristic Japanese references with a myriad of styles, methodologies, and forms—trademarks of one of the most celebrated artists of our time.

Simon Denny “New Management” at Portikus, Frankfurt

by mousse

July 31~2014

Simon Denny’s exhibition opening at Portikus this month revisits a pivotal occasion in the history of the South Korean multinational Samsung. The project is his most recent exploring the broader cultural message implied within the aspirations and legacy associated with a very spectacular but essentially closed, corporate event. It closely follows “Disruptive Berlin”, at Galerie Buchholz which quoted branding, media and rhetoric from a technology conference held in Berlin last year, interrelating aspects of the city’s identity to an emerging part of its economy, namely the local, so-called “start-up” industry.

Franz West “Where is my Eight?” at The Hepworth Wakefield

by mousse

July 31~2014

“What is sculpture?” Austrian artist Erwin Wurm ponders in an interview. “Sculpture is to add volume, to take volume away, and you can also say that when you gain or lose weight.” His own sculptures and installations, which often look as if they had been subjected to a brutal fattening-up regime or diet, warrant the analogy. Take the bloated Fat House (2003), for instance, and its counterpoint, Narrow House – a mere sliver of a place that visitors could walk straight through at the 2011 Venice Biennale.

Dean Levin & Oliver Perkins at Rod Barton, London

by mousse

July 29~2014

Rod Barton is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition featuring “Dean Levin & Oliver Perkins”. The new works are presented on either side of a wall that demarcates the gallery as two separate, yet permeable spaces. Each artist’s work stands autonomous, yet is linked conceptually through its ability to challenge notions of perception through subtle material reconfigurations that confuse our optic reading of painting’s conventionally two-dimensional surface. In both instances the work of Perkins and Levin subverts our ability to take objects for what they first appear to be and allow us to question what they actually are.

“Another Look at Detroit” at Marianne Boesky Gallery and Marlborough Chelsea, New York

by mousse

July 26~2014

A joint project between Marianne Boesky Gallery and Marlborough Chelsea, “Another Look at Detroit” presents works and objects by over fifty artists, designers, and cultural contributors. The focus of this exhibition is the city of Detroit as a creative center, historically through to today. Spanning a period of 150 years, and taking place at both galleries’ Chelsea spaces, this exhibition is by no means a comprehensive survey. Rather, “Another Look at Detroit” intends to portray a vision as sprawling and complex as the biography of the city itself.

“Hello Europa!” at Galerie Valentin, Paris

by mousse

July 25~2014

“A kind of unintentional parody hangs over everything, a tactical simulation, a consummate aesthetic enjoyment [jouissance], is attached to the indefinable play of reading and the rules of the game. Travelling signs, media fashion and models, the blind but brilliant ambience of simulacra.” Jean Baudrillard, Symbolic Exchange and Death, 1976

Michael E. Smith, Sam Falls, Adriano Costa and Samara Scott “High Street” at Zabludowicz Collection, London

by mousse

July 25~2014

Michael E. Smith

The work of Michael E. Smith is enigmatic, thought-provoking and often confounding. Frequently working with found objects of an abject nature such as crushed plastic containers, tarred bird feathers, deconstructed computer casing and resin-encrusted clothes, Smith places these fragments in empty expanses, dark recesses or high corners of gallery spaces.

Vern Blosum at Kunsthalle Bern

by mousse

July 23~2014

As most exhibitions do, this one starts with a story. At first glance, it’s easy to think that Vern Blosum’s exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern, curated by Lionel Bouvier, is not an uncommon one. In the archaeological dig of the past it seems for each new young artist, there’s a rediscovered counterpart; the resurrection of figure forgotten by history, who for all intensive purposes may be forgotten just as quickly again. When you read a bit deeper, Blosum’s story comes with its fair share of intrigue, deception, and subversion—a young artist decides to play the game of the then-nascent movement of pop art and finds brief success. Leo Castelli sells the work, not knowing Blosum’s true identity. After mounting skepticism, Alfred H. Barr (a figure, who like most in art history, seem so foreign to our current landscape that they are almost a fiction themselves) begins a quasi-witch hunt, which led him to eventually find that there was no birth record in Blosum’s “birth state” of Colorado. The discovery of his lack of identity led to the physical (and perhaps equally ideological) removal of his painting from the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
