The Bourse de Commerce exhibis a portion of Peter Fischli David Weiss's Suddenly this Overview (1981-2012) installation. This clay-based work humorously explores human history through hand-modeled sculptures, accompanied by the film The Least Resistance (1981). The duo's first sculptural epic utilizes raw clay to create 76 figurines with captions serving as punchlines, offering a playful and thought-provoking blend of absurdity and universality. In the Auditorium, the experimental film The Way Things Go (1987) is screened.

Deep Breaths Cultuurcentrum Strombeek, Grimbergen, Belgium Institutional Exhibition March 1 – May 18, 2024

CC Strombeek presents the first institutional exhibition of Swiss artist Louisa Gagliardi. Her practice mainly revolves around alienation, and dislocation as essential features of our current, global existence. Gagliardi’s strongly pronounced, figurative paintings form not only technically, but also visually a complex game denoting delirium or delusion. For this show, the artist will conceive a new series of paintings and sculptures within a maze-like scenography. Deep Breaths builds upon her ongoing interest in the liminal space. In our highly technological and hyper connected world the borders between reality and fiction are becoming more and more blurry. We get tricked into thinking that our flesh self and virtual self might become one.

Cry Me a River Kunstmuseum Luzern, Luzern, Switzerland Institutional Exhibition July 6 – October 20, 2024

The exhibition title Cry Me a River cites a song that has been interpreted by many singers, including Ella Fitzgerald and Justin Timberlake. In the case of Ugo Rondinone, “river” refers to the River Reuss, which flows out of the Lake Lucerne, in front of the Kunstmuseum Luzern. Inside the museum it seems as if it is snowing, a couple of fish flit by. Ugo Rondinone’s reference to the legendary Inner-Swiss Inwardness and its particular leaning towards materials is no coincidence. The artist stages his cultural origins lovingly and with great exhilaration. A nice example of this are his “Stonefigures”, larger-than-life stone men that continue the tradition of the helpful signposts in the mountains.

Galerie Eva Presenhuber and Pilar Corrias are pleased to present Bodega Run, a 235-page anthology inspired by Tschabalala Self's series reflecting New York City's bodegas. Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co. and edited by Sasha Bonét, it explores the cultural significance of these community-owned spaces. The anthology combines Self's vibrant visuals with nine newly commissioned texts by diverse authors that explore the complex consumer and merchant dynamics of New York's metropolitan culture and the bodega's potential as a radical site of resistance from racial, gender, and diasporic perspectives. To mark its release, the Swiss Institute in New York will host a book launch on January 11, 2024, displaying Self's new Bodega Run works. From January 11 to 13, 2024, the Swiss Institute will transform into a conceptualized bodega, showcasing Self's new artworks, including paintings, sculptures, and wall-mounted reliefs, accompanied by a neon sign installation.

In dialogue with Eilshemius, large-scale forest landscapes by Rondinone will be on view.

luminous light Galerija Kula, Split, Croatia Institutional Exhibition November 3, 2023 – February 17, 2024

Ugo Rondinone presents work created specifically for Galerija Kula, featuring a lightning bolt as the motif, a bifurcated composition anchored in the gallery floor, entirely covered with sand. This creates an environment that includes visual, haptic, and auditory elements in the field of experience. The momentary appearance of a lightning bolt, typically observed in the distance, is brought closer to the visitor by means of a bronze body visually accentuated with yellow colour. Rondinone’s static lightning bolt, placed amidst friable material, actually becomes a mental polygon where, on one hand, creation and destruction unite in opposition, and on the other, it prompts and recalls various belief systems in which lightning appears as a symbol of divinity, from Greek mythology to Catholicism or Hinduism

Around the Way features multi-material paintings and sculptures by Tschabalala Self, whose works will together form colourful spatial displays in EMMA’s concrete-dominated exhibition space. Self’s art often deals with the intersections of race and gender. The artist draws from her personal experiences as a Black American woman. She depicts bodies that are both exalted and objectified in Western imagery and art history. Through repetition, deconstruction and distortion of this imagery, she creates a new kind of narrative about the Black body.

Artist talk with Valérie Knoll on the occasion of Hoi Köln! Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne, Germany Institutional Exhibition September 29 – November 19, 2023

The exhibition Hoi Köln gathers a subjective overview of those who continue to paint under changed conditions. It is a cross-generational gathering. Some of those shown have been committed to painting for decades and experienced some surges in the medium. They also painted when it was infamous, and continue to paint today, when so many are doing so, without the need for legitimizing discourse. But this exhibition also includes many younger ones, raised in the digitalized world, who choose analog painting despite the technological possibilities. The show presents works by Peter Fischli David Weiss and Jean-Frédéric Schnyder. Peter Fischli will be in conversation with curator Valérie Knoll on Friday, October 20, 7-8 pm.

At the anniversary exhibition of VFO at Kunsthalle Zürich, a daybed sculpture titled 'Business and Pleasure' by Louisa Gagliardi is on view. The Swiss artist said in an interview in March 2023 about these pieces exhibited at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Maag Areal:  "The sculptures evolve out of the tenor of the domestic environment you see in some of my paintings. […] I placed my daybed on a plexiglass pedestal to give it the status of a sculpture. Like the paintings, I wanted to maintain a certain distance between the object one sees and the viewer’s ability to interact with it. I did not want anyone to sit on them, but nevertheless tempted the viewer to consider that possibility. And so I made them a height that would invite that."

Horizons is a monumental aluminum sculpture started by Jean-Marie Appriou in 2022 and was first exhibited at Art Basel Unlimited 2023. Horizons is a a large-scale aluminum boat carrying two ‘austronauts.’ According to the artist, these two characters, their eyes fixed on the distance, are ‘exo-humans’ in search of an advanced humanity. 'Horizons' also echoes two historical paintings which he references in his work as a sculptor: 'La barque de Dante' by Eugène Delacroix (1822) and 'Die Toteninsel' by Arnold Böcklin (1880). The boat, and more broadly the theme of navigation, are central to Appriou’s work, imbued with the idea of passage and elevated consciousness.

The title of the exhibition, Feed Me, Kiss Me, Need Me, is taken from the accompanying script. Self is particularly interested in the dual nature of the private environment as an emotionally and socially charged locus. "The house has two realities," she states. "A desired reality — a place of comfort, inwardness and true self-expression." "In reality, it is a place full of expectations, where people are required to assume roles."

This group exhibition highlights how the repertoire of circus forms continues to explore current social issues on both micro and macro levels, question political structures, expose stigmatization and illuminate the human-animal relationship. In his piece If There Were Anywhere But Desert. Saturday (2011), Ugo Rondinone skillfully captures the poignant essence of clowns, evoking a sense of melancholy that resonates with viewers. The suspended shoes embody the fragility and transience of human emotions, a theme that has permeated the circus throughout its long history, not only in its moments of joy and celebration, but also in its more sombre and melancholy aspects.

This major solo exhibition spans the past five years Adam Pendleton’s work, with a marked emphasis on abstract composition. Encompassing all of the museum’s special exhibition galleries, To Divide By includes new paintings, drawings and ceramics, as well as two recent film portraits. For Pendleton, abstraction is a means of representation, a logic, and a space for theoretical and visual experimentation. “By working in and through abstraction,” noted Meredith Malone, curator at the Kemper Art Museum, who organized To Divide By in collaboration with the artist, “Pendleton calls for a more capacious, chaotic and fluid space, one capable of producing radically new expectations and outcomes, not only for himself but also for the viewer.”

Oscar Tuazon and curator Lynn Kost will give an artist talk during Castell Art Weekend at Hotel Castell in Zuoz. Lynn Kost said "Oscar Tuazon, (*1975 in Seattle) creates platforms with his sculptures on which other things are supposed to happen besides the viewing of art. Based on his interest in do-it-yourself architecture, he creates objects that open up interior spaces to the public. These can be entered and are linked to art historical references and socially acute themes such as resource consumption or sustainability. Just as the artist does not complete the structures into functional architecture in order to create space for the audience's imagination, the content references are only offers for discussion, because the common exchange comes before everything else.“

The second presentation of “A Lover’s Discourse” features a new painting by New York–based artist Chase Hall exhibited alongside Jackson Pollock’s Untitled (1951). Hall’s new work Field Painting (2022–23) was completed as he researched examples of post-war abstraction in local private collections in Aspen. The direct juxtaposition of Field Painting with Pollock’s Untitled work on paper initiates a critical reading of the semiotics and cultural value attached to the drip-paint technique across histories of abstraction, improvisation, mark-making, and politics of labor.

Nature Doesn't Know About Us Sculpture Milwaukee, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US Institutional Exhibition Summer 2022 – Fall 2024

As guest curator of Sculpture Milwaukee, Ugo Rondinone presents the group show Nature Doesn't Know About Us, which includes works by John Giorno and Oscar Tuazon among others: "There is a world alongside ours—boundless, unhurried, interconnected, resourceful, lavishly inventive, and we are only temporarily in it. Nature Doesn’t Know About Us celebrates the disparate elements of the Earth, while exploring the human connection to nature. The exhibition brings together the works of eighteen artists who combine skeptical clarity and at times humor-tinged desire to locate the intersection of spiritual and physical presence in our daily life. The natural world serves as a doorway into a highly rarefied metaphysical realm where the sea of consciousness surges against the tangible world. A world where all is in flux as distinctions between self and soul, body and spirit, past and present, mortification and bliss, confinement and escape all blur and waver."

What are our essential needs?

The Wing – "Paysage" Consortium Museum, Dijon, France Institutional Exhibition July 1, 2023 – January 28, 2024

A brand-new project called “The Wing” occupies the first floor of the Consortium Museum. This space is usually reserved for temporary exhibitions of the collection. The Consortium Museum's directors have given this "wing" of the structure to two artists, Tobias Pils (b. 1971, Austria) and Joe Bradley (b. 1975, USA), who have strong ties to the art center and have previously exhibited there. The "Paysage" exhibition was the result of these two painters becoming curators. It pulls together pieces from their own collections by artists whose discreet careers have been characterized as "folkart," "outsider," and other vague terms. Hans Kruckenhauser, an Austrian painter who lived from 1940 until 2017, is the subject of Tobias Pils's current project. Joe Bradley has given prominence to the prosperous landscapes painted by Alyne Harris (1943, USA) from her rural home in Florida.

Over the past ten years, Kahn has examined the spatial relationship between painting and sculpture to construct a visual vocabulary of representational and abstract forms that integrate formal concerns with materials from everyday life. His new works are playful narrative compositions with oversized figurative icons taken from domestic life. The deep, rusted red tone of the sculptures is a result of the natural weathering process of Cor-Ten steel, contrasting with the lush green foliage the LongHouse garden. The series was previously on view at City Hall Park, New York. In June 2023, two sculptures are shown at Art Basel Parcours 2023.

Artists Choose Parrish Parrish Art Museum, New York, NY Institutional Exhibition April 16 – August 6, 2023

Celebrating the Museum’s 125th anniversary, this landmark exhibition honors the East End’s rich artistic legacy and brings greater attention to major artists practicing here today. Forty-one artists have selected works from the collection to be shown along with their own. Rondinone's contribution, the alphabet of my mothers and fathers, is made of twenty-six panels arranged as a grid on all four walls of the gallery. Each panel holds a set of preindustrial farming and kitchen tools collected by the artist in the past three years from different farms and garage sales on Long Island.

Sunrise. East Städel Museum, Frankfurt, Germany Press June 28, 2023 – June 9, 2024

For his group of works Sunrise. East, Rondinone assigned a head with characteristic, highly reduced facial features to represent each calendar month. Larger than life and cast in shiny silver aluminium, the massive sculptural heads are reduced to their facial expressions: With mouths agape, they gaze from small eyes, from friendly and naïve to sceptical, from surprised to eerie. They trigger the most diverse associations, evoking ritual masks and ghosts, as well as the visual language of comics, emoticons, and memes. Visitors to the Städel Garden are invited to come face-to-face with all twelve creatures – and thus every month of the year – and experience the various joys, adversities, and emotions of an entire year in fast forward.

8. Biennial: Common Ground Kulturort Galerie Weiertal, Winterthur, Switzerland Institutional Exhibition May 21 – September 10, 2023

This year's Biennale Weiertal revolves around "common ground": it is about social and ecological justice, and how closely they are linked. This becomes clear with regard to the current global exploitation of people and nature, to the distribution of resources on the planet that is supposed to be our "common ground". With 17 artistic contributions, among which Sam Falls, the garden in the Weiertal becomes a place of reflection and perhaps even the nucleus of social utopias that are carried from here into the world.

Liam Gillick’s intervention in the permanent collection of Berlin’s Museum of the Ancient Near East, titled Filtered Time, opened to the public in April 2023. Using light, color, shape, projection, sound, and almost no text, his intervention comes at a time when the Pergamon Museum, in which this collection is housed, is projected to close at the end of 2023. Gillick agreed to realize his project amidst difficult debates about how to deal with these buildings and the fraught colonial histories they house, about which he spoke to Jörg Heiser.

"[...] These paintings are time. They take it and give it away. They move toward the viewer and away with him. They transform themselves in him for it is he who shifts them into a subjective shade of time and recreates them. And yet they continue to exist, indeed by simply existing they are the most basic form of dialogue. A dialogue that never demands affirmation nor negation, but decision - even if without compassion, for this picture in this moment, that is, in time! [...]"

Sleep, Death’s Own Brother The George Economou Collection, Athens, Greece Institutional Exhibition June 18, 2023 – March 2024

Titled after a line from Hesiod’s eighth-century BC epic poem Theogony (“Harmful Night, veiled in dusky fog, carries in her arms Sleep, Death’s own brother”), this new exhibition by Steven Shearer revolves around this uneasy proximity (“brotherhood”) between death and sleep, a recurring trope in Shearer’s art. Built around the George Economou Collection’s substantial holdings of Steven Shearer’s work in painting and printed matter, Sleep, Death’s Own Brother proposes an in-depth look at the oeuvre of this Vancouver-based artist from the transgressive thematic perspective of the lifeless body, which is sometimes truly, sometimes only seemingly dead.

John Giorno's Dial-A-Poem MoMa, New York Institutional Exhibition From April 7, 2023

John Giorno’s vision for a shared, open-access repository of information was groundbreaking in a pre-digital world. Dial-A-Poem was first presented at MoMA in the 1970 exhibition Information, organized by Kynaston McShine. Galvanized by social movements, including opposition to the Vietnam War, Giorno incorporated numerous works by radical poets and political activists. This exhibition features notes and documentation that illustrate how he originally arranged the poems, as well as phones containing 200 randomized poems selected by the artist in 2012 from his archive of thousands.

Human Is juxtaposes historical with newly produced artworks. The exhibition paints a polyphonic picture of the mutual penetration of body and technology: it addresses the often violent interdependence of humans on their technological surroundings and opposes any promises of salvation through trans-humanistic progress. Simultaneously, it opens up spaces of possibility in which dual-istic taxonomies can be overcome in favor of a networked and interdependent existence. With a contribution by Matthew Angelo Harrison

ON STAGE - Kunst als Bühne mumok, Vienna, Austria Institutional Exhibition March 15, 2023 – January 14, 2024

The exhibition ON STAGE explores the various theatrical and stage-related forms of expression in art since the 1960s, when a neo-avant-garde critical of tradition began focusing on performative and actionist art forms that endowed artists with a stage-like presence, often in front of an audience. The Viennese Actionism with its provocative and time-critical theatricality is just as much a part of this as the Vienna Group, whose literary cabaret stands firmly in the tradition of Dadaist theater, or the Fluxus-Movement with its media crossovers. The exhibition shows 150 works and work series, among them a painting by Tobias Pils, most of which are culled from the holdings of the mumok collection.

NATURE HUMAINE — HUMAINE NATURE Fondation Vincent Van Gogh, Arles, France Institutional Exhibition November 11, 2022 – April 10, 2023

As the signs that we need to rethink the polarity between nature and culture are multiplying, the exhibition “Nature Humaine – Humaine Nature” invites us to explore the complex relationship between humanity and nature. Although the fourteen artists seem to share the desire to foreground the urgent issues we face and to rethink our behaviours, they engage with different realms. Their works, including sculptures, drawings and videos, capture apparently bucolic elements or evoke the disastrous effects of humanity’s domination over the rest of the living world.

The Swans: Karen Kilimnik/Stephanie Seymour Paintings and Dresses, mixes Karen Kilimnik’s romantic paintings in which a youthful Leonardo DiCaprio and other stars and fashion models are cast in leading roles, with selections from Stephanie Seymour’s collection of vintage haute couture created by the eponymous designers Azzedine Alaia, Courreges, Christian Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, Paco Rabanne and others. The resulting exhibition consists of imaginatively calibrated vignettes of paintings and fashion, which celebrate glamour, beauty, fantasy, and the occult through the eyes of two singular yet overlapping perceptions. The title references the mid-century high society women who Truman Capote dubbed the “Swans”.

Pioneer (2023), a new sculptural work by Tschabalala Self, is now on view in this year’s Desert X, the recurring exhibition that activates desert locations through site-specific installations across the Coachella Valley. For most, the expansiveness and freedom of the American West is inextricably tied to the Stetsoned archetype. Forgoing the forefathers, Self’s Pioneer is a monument built in homage to the collective foremothers of contemporary America — the largely unidentified Native and African American women whose bodies and labour allowed for American expansionism and growth. It stands as a visual representation of their birthright and place within the American landscape.

The Close of Day SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, Georgia Institutional Exhibition February 28 – August 21, 2023

Chase Hall interrogates the realities of race in America through innovative figurative painting techniques and iconography that engage the past and the present. Using coffee grounds as pigment on raw cotton canvases, Hall varies the levels of coarseness and fineness of the bean to achieve a range of tonal values, metaphorically articulating a non-monolithic Black experience and evoking his biracial hybridity. The artist’s first solo museum exhibition brings together new paintings and an impressive installation featuring a century-old, self-playing Wurlitzer organ ensconced in a brick room, evoking the museum’s historic structure — and the breath and memory of those who created it.

Gerwald Rockenschaub's exhibition reappropriation (allure/construct) is on view at Schlossmuseum Linz from March 31 to July 2, 2023. The artist is one of the most internationally renowned representatives of contemporary Austrian art. Since his artistic beginnings in the Neo Geo movement of the 1980s, he has developed a stringent oeuvre characterized by radical reduction and precision. His works reveal borrowings from constructivist-concrete traditions as well as an interest in the abstraction of form, which plays an essential role in the creation of pictograms and similar pictorial signs.

Blackness, White, and Light mumok, Vienna, Austria Institutional Exhibition March 31 – September 3, 2023

mumok presents New York artist Adam Pendleton’s first comprehensive solo exhibition in Europe. Pendleton’s painting is a continuous index in which gestures are recorded, transposed, and overwritten. Since 2008 he has articulated much of his work through the idea of Black Dada, an ever-evolving inquiry into the relationship between Blackness, abstraction, and the avant-garde. In his paintings, drawings, and other works, a visual philosophy of incomplete postulates emerges, flattening the distinctions between legibility and abstraction, past and present, familiar and strange. Curated by Marianne Dobner.

She paints with various pigments, materials, textiles and threads. Her unique technique includes found, acquired, and hand-­dyed fabrics. With these she creates figures that depict avatars rather than individuals. The artist draws from her personal experiences as a Black American woman. In this context she stages bodies that are often exalted and excluded within her imagined environments.

The strong, vivid hues shining in this collection appear as the shades of the rainbow. A color spectrum beautifully represented in Ugo Rondinone's visual cosmos, particularly his rainbow works. WE ARE POEMS embodies the artist's fascination with poetry emphasizing the subjective, the irrational, the emotional. The Swiss-born, New York-based artist believes that poetry-like art-needs no explanation, no thinking, but rather demands simply to be felt. Creative Director Albert Kriemler has selected this artwork as a symbol for the self-evident sensuality of Akris clothes and as a perfect representation for the 100 year anniversary of the fashion house.
