Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian “Infinite possibility. Mirror Works and Drawings 1974-2014” at Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto
Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art presents “Infinite Possibility. Mirror Works and Drawings 1974-2014”, the first museum survey of geometric mirror works and drawings by the celebrated Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (b. 1924, Qazvin).
Le Quartier is proud to present the first solo exhibition in France of the Norwegian artist Ane Hjort Guttu. The exhibition “Unitary Urbanism” groups videos, sculptures and new productions into an ensemble of works that invites the viewer to consider the aesthetics and politics of the contemporary city. Inspired by the subversive strategies of the Situationists at the turn of the 60s, Guttu asks anew how the artist can contribute to new ways of seeing and inhabiting urban space. In her works, the artist carries a potential as a revolutionary figure and is placed, paradoxically, both at the margins and at the centre of the flexible economy of late capitalism.
- Tried using a strategy to hang all works six inches apart from one another, starting with one of Ryan’s pieces, cycling through Lukas, Jesse, and Shawn, and repeating this cycle until we ran out of space.
For her first comprehensive exhibition with the gallery, Rosa Barba presents a selection of new and existing works. These include three of her projector sculptures, a major new felt work, an object full of lighting gels, six large plaster casts containing the imprint of thousands of letterpress print blocks. Film is always a point of departure in Barba’s work, whether or not it contains the literal elements of projector, celluloid and screen. Of the three projector sculptures, only two of them actually present an image—the film on the third has no image but instead carries an optical soundtrack.
White Columns is pleased to present a solo exhibition by the Mexican, New York-based artist Aliza Nisenbaum. Nisenbaum’s exhibition includes nine recent paintings.
“It amounts almost to a manifesto: looking at something real and finding a way of expressing it”. 
Gavin Brown’s enterprise is pleased to announce an exhibition by Steven Pippin. “The idea originated in 2003 whilst coming across a metaphor that is repeatedly used in astrophysics describing the current state of the universe. This metaphor simply uses a pencil balancing on its point to illustrate the perfect harmonic state that exists in the relationship between space and time, now termed spacetime. The work here on display uses a 2B unmodified standard pencil and crosses the boundaries of existential philosophy with astrophysics combined into a delicate and complex feedback system that can achieve this subtle balance of the pencil to a point that comes close to a sensation of suspended time.”
In the exhibition, Rappaport continues his focus on wall-based works that operate between painting, sculpture and drawing. Using a palette drawn from the constantly regenerating constructed landscape of Southern California, his application of color varies in saturation and ranges from subtle landscape influenced tones, to high-pitched hues of popular graphics.
Galerie Rolando Anselmi is delighted to present the fourth and last chapter of the on-going project, “About Sculpture.” The project has evolved throughout the year, with four group exhibitions exploring contemporary sculpture. The artistic relevance of this medium is examined through the work of 25 international artists, born between the 60s and the 80s. The artists included in the exhibitions, ranging from established to emerging, are invited to present one piece, trying to expand and go beyond conventional debates and notions of sculpture. Their works reflect a multi-layered and contradictory image of common media definitions through the implementation of different strategies of investigation and aesthetic parameters. In this occasion we are excited to host works by Nicolas Lamas, Maximilian Schubert, Klaus Weber, A Kassen, Santiago Taccetti, Matt Bryans, Alis/Filliol. The shows aim to build a narrative in space, investigating the relationship between space and material in an effort to exhibit a heterogeneous spectrum of possibilities.
“Puddle, pothole, portal” is co-curated by Ruba Katrib, Curator, SculptureCenter, and artist Camille Henrot.
Taka Ishii Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Silke Otto-Knapp and Florian Pumhösl. This is the first time they are collaborating on a two-person exhibition with new work formalizing their ongoing dialogue.
Ibrahim Mahama is an artist for whom the collectivist potentialities of art production, recall the progressivism of political action. Mahama’s practice acts within the historical intersection of society and its commodities, placing an emphasis on processes in which art becomes the residual product of civic movement. His ambitious installations (”Occupation” 2011 – on-going) form a series of interventions in which symbolically loaded materials often associated with trade and export are utilized to question the role of the object within processes of daily transaction and exchange. Mahama’s epic installations encompass various sites, buildings, landscapes and people of his everyday existence. As totalizing artworks, they transform various contexts to reveal new spatial realities. They perform within the chasm of contemporary postindustrial society, among the clamorous high roads and crane-filled slums, skirted by open gutters of travelling debris.
The works of Marvin Gaye Chetwynd are deeply rooted into folk traditions: medieval carnivals, propitiatory dances and political demonstrations are the background from which the artist constructs an opulent and dystonic world that often refers to black humour and gothic literature as well as the historical avant-gardes and the icons of contemporary cinema.
Facebook is blue; Earth is blue when viewed from outer space. Blue is the colour of romanticism and of melancholy. Over 80 percent of the western population chooses blue as their favourite colour. Conservative parties prefer blue; Margret Thatcher’s blue outfits are legendary. It is precisely because blue is so omnipresent in our society that it has experienced such diverse cultural ascriptions and is so open to being ideologically charged. To reclaim a colour like this also means to pick up on its complex and multilayered connotations as well as potentially to reinterpret them.
”Something Beautiful”uses the lens of contemporary photographic portraiture to examine the ideals of youth as a product of memory and the wisdom of hindsight. Like a daydream, the works on view propose the fleeting sensuality of a fantasy, coupled with the sense of loss that comes from a jolt back to reality—a juxtaposition analogous to the journey from childhood to adulthood. Artists Jeff Burton, Sue de Beer, Keith Edmier, Roe Ethridge, Annika Larsson, Deana Lawson, Viviane Sassen, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Xaviera Simmons, Dorothée Smith, Eva Stenram, Eric Stephany, and Wu Tsang come together here, offering varied photographic visions that portray different manifestations of this shifting space—between youth and maturity, between the ideal and the true.
In “Model”, Talia Chetrit reflects on the complex relationship between reality and representation, investigating themes of authenticity in the photographic medium through the exchange between subject and photographer. Alongside the new series of photographs, a video captures Talia Chetrit’s parents—present in earlier photographic works—as unwitting subjects of a collection of video clips. Parents candidly records the self-conscious posturing the artist’s mother and father, contrasting the act of staging an image with the relationships created in the act of photographic portrayal.
