Marcia Hafif

16. September 2017 – 14. Januar 2018, Kunstmuseum

Das Kunsthaus Baselland in Muttenz und das Kunstmuseum St.Gallen haben in enger Kooperation zwei Ausstellungen entwickelt, die sich den zentralen Aspekten des Schaffens von Marcia Hafif (*1929 Pomona, CA, lebt in Laguna Beach und New York) aus je anderer Perspektive widmen und erstmals einen Überblick über ihr Schaffen bieten.
Marcia Hafif gehört zu den bedeutendsten amerikanischen Malerinnen; ihr Schaffen wirkte bereits früh auf die europäische Kunst. 1961 bis 1969 malte sie in Rom in der Tradition des amerikanischen Hard Edge Painting. Mit der Rückkehr in die USA setzte die konzeptuelle Untersuchung zu Farbe und Struktur des Tafelbildes ein, für die ihr Schaffen exemplarisch steht. Spezifisch ist dabei, dass sie frei und experimentell Rahmenbedingungen des Gebrauchs industriell hergestellter Farbe veränderte.

«I was experimenting. Not knowing where I was going.»

‹Radical Painting› steht für eine monochrome Malerei, die ohne jeden Abbildcharakter die reine Wirkung von Farbe auf einem Träger untersucht. Auch wenn Marcia Hafif den Begriff für ihr eigenes Schaffen nicht angewendet wissen möchte, geht er doch auf sie zurück. Von Thomas Krens ins renommierte Williams College in Williamstown, MA, eingeladen, versammelte sie 1984 in der namengebenden Ausstellung «Radical Painting» solidarisch 12 Malerinnen und Maler mit ähnlichen Ansätzen, unter ihnen in Europa bekannte Künstler wie Olivier Mosset oder Joseph Marioni.

Seit den 1960er Jahren hat Marcia Hafif eindrückliche Werkserien geschaffen, welche die Möglichkeiten der Farbfeldmalerei grundlegend erforscht und um immer neue Aspekte erweitert haben. Das Unerwartete und Experimentelle zu tun, war dabei gleichsam ihr Markenzeichen.

An Extended Grey Scale (1973) mit 106 Gemälden gehört ebenso dazu wie die berühmten Black Paintings (1979/80), in denen sie ein tiefes Schwarz durch Überlagern von Ultramarinblau und gebranntem Umbra erzielte. Neuste Werkreihen der Shade Paintings (seit 2013) stehen neben den zweifarbigen, in empirischer Annäherung an den Goldenen Schnitt vertikal unterteilten TGGTs (Tomatoes, Grapes and Green Tea; 2006) und der brillanten Farbtransparenz der Glaze Paintings (1995).

Die Ausstellung weitet sich aus auf das Feld der Zeichnung: Das Füllen eines Blattes Papier mit kurzen vertikalen Strichen und unter Messung der dafür benötigten Zeit repräsentiert einen Werktypus, den Marcia Hafif bis heute parallel verfolgt. Im Jahr 2017 entstandene Ipad-Fotografien, direkt aus dem Studio in Laguna Beach, spannen den Bogen zu den konzeptuellen Schwarzweiss-Fotografien der Pomona Houses aus dem Jahr 1971, in denen sie 45 Häuser ihrer Geburtsstadt in streng frontaler Ansicht als Reihung fotografierte.

Palais de Tokyo presents a group exhibition in Chicago in partnership with the Institut français and EXPO CHICAGO, alongside the Chicago Architecture Biennial, with the participation of the DuSable Museum of African American History, Mana Contemporary Chicago, the Graham Foundation and The Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
The exhibition, which brings together thirteen artists, including a designer, amidst one of Chicago’s iconic buildings, explores the multiple relationships between art and architecture. It is being presented in an architectural masterpiece, which is strongly rooted in the city’s history and will be reopening to the public for the first time for many years: The Roundhouse. At the heart of this remarkable edifice, the show creates an intimate dialogue between original productions and pre-existent works. A selection of the onsite pieces, conceived and produced specifically for this event by guest artists in dialogue with the architectural envelope that surrounds them, distinguish themselves by providing a support, or a frame, for the works of other artists, while being artworks themselves.

Palais de Tokyo’s “Singing Stones,” curated by Katell Jaffrès,
brings together 11 emerging artists from both the French and Chicago art scenes, as part of the first off-site exhibition in the United States, in
partnership with the INSTITUT FRANÇAIS. Presented within The
Roundhouse—a 17,000 sq. ft space built in 1881 and designed by
Burnham & Root—at the DuSable Museum of African American History, the exhibition will present an intimate dialogue between original productions and pre-existing works.

Eran Shakine commisioned outdoor sculpture
The Girl from Buda” for Art Market Budapest.

The Girl from Buda is a 6-meter tall sculpture of a young girl installed in front of the Chain Bridge in the center of Budapest. It depicts the young girl walking toward the bridge. Is she coming back home from a night out in Pest?
Is she on a catwalk?

Throughout art history, artists tried to represent the female form as a canon of beauty, while in the more recent past, large figured sculptures were used as part of political strategy. Located on the point where domestic Buda meets the international Pest, where past is giving way to the future, this sculpture is a monument to everyday moments in the lives of young people living in the city.

The sculpture is the largest ever produced by Shakine. It will be dominantly displayed at one of Budapest’s most visible crossroads.

The Body is a Bag of Needs

creates a parallel between the restraints of society and the individual’s yearning for freedom and the sublime. Nave portrays exhausted and bleeding figures against the backdrop of the Israeli landscape. His subjects are confused intertwined bodies, eternally bound together in a mutual fate. Immersed in their flesh and blood, the figures are heavy. While they long for the sublime their earthly bodies trap them in the midst of a conflict where existential darkness meets metaphysical salvation.

“The Human Condition” – Psychological works from the Serge Tiroche Collection

This exciting collaboration with Art Market Budapest will feature selected works from START and Serge Tiroche’s private collections.

Titled “The Human Condition”, the exhibition focuses on psychological works by a dozen artists that bring to the fore the diversity and complexity of Israel’s contemporary art scene. Born in the 70’s and 80’s, these artists work in multiple mediums and practices, yet are all committed to map the complex fabric of Israeli society, reflective of their diverse origins and cultures. Their works both represent an aesthetic investigation on psychological phenomena and an intellectual approach of political and cultural issues. Either mirroring real life situations or turning everyday observations into absurd associations, the artworks speak of personal and universal problems at a deep, emotional level, with a regard on the visual iconography of their antecedents. Taken from Serge Tiroche’s collections, the seemingly disparate selection potently explores the collector’s interest in works that decipher, explore and untangle the Human Condition.

START was founded in 2008 in order assist artists, curators and collectors make their first steps in the art world, and to promote Israeli contemporary art internationally. Funded entirely by Serge Tiroche, the START collection amassed over 700 works by nearly 150 Israeli artists, working in all mediums. It is most probably the largest collection of Israeli Art from the new millennium.

This intimate exhibition of approximately 11 works by Maryland-based artist Annet Couwenberg reveals the intersection of science, art, technology, and history that makes textiles such a fascinating art form.

In the summer of 2014, Couwenberg, a Maryland Institute College of Art professor and internationally exhibited artist, received a prestigious Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (SARF). As a part of this program, which paired scientists with visual artists, Couwenberg worked with Dr. Lynne Parenti at the National Museum of Natural History to examine fish fossils. She has applied the patterns and structures of aquatic life forms captured through advanced technological methods to her artwork, which is also visually connected to traditional textiles and costume forms drawn from her own Dutch heritage.

In her latest efforts, she pays homage to the Netherland’s production of damask during the 17th century, when this fabric was referred to as “white gold”. Returning to her homeland, she wove four panels featuring designs generated by her Smithsonian studies adapted to damask patterns and inspired by the BMA’s Portrait of a Young Woman (1634) by Dutch artist Frans Hals.

On the centenary of Heinrich Böll’s birth, in its new rooms for photography the Museum Ludwig will examine Böll’s relationship to photography and taking photographs—as a public figure, as an object of study, as an aid to his literary work, and as a motif in his writings.

One year after Heinrich Böll’s death, in 1986 the Museum Ludwig was opened in a newly constructed building. The address: Heinrich-Böll-Platz. The museum’s photography collection contains numerous works that show Heinrich Böll. After all, as an author he was a sought-after subject for photographers. During Böll’s lifetime, two volumes of portraits of him photographed by Heinz Held, among others, were published. Böll maintained a friendship with Held and also allowed him to document his private life—a remarkable exception, since Böll tended to be camera-shy. A selection of portraits of Böll from Heinz Held’s estate will be presented for the first time.

Yet texts by Heinrich Böll appeared during his lifetime in nine photo books, revised or reprinted, such as in Chargesheimer’s Unter Krahnenbäumen, Im Ruhrgebiet (both 1958), and Menschen am Rhein (1960). In 1964 Böll published his essay “The Humane Camera” in the catalog for the Weltausstellung der Photographie. In it he formulated a morality of photography: “When the camera is intrusive, when its instrument, the lens, becomes the instrument of the photographer who aims to catch, denounce and expose someone, photography crosses its aesthetic and moral boundaries.” He also speaks of “violations.” And such a violation is transformed into literature in The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum (1974, English translation 1978), when words and images in the yellow press rob Blum’s dignity. The humane, the quality of being human—therein lies Böll’s interest in literature as well as in photography. After all, on one thing he is clear: “I don’t care much for lavish photo books.” To him, seeing was the central sense to understanding the world: “… a good eye is one of the writer’s tools,” he states in “Bekenntnis zur Trümmerliteratur” (1952). For his novel Women in a River Landscape (1985, English translation 1988) Böll asked his son René for photographs of selected places in Bonn, which he then described in the novel. Photographs and corresponding passages from his writings will be combined in the exhibition.

Böll’s relationship to photography is also reflected in his novels and stories about photographers and photographs. Photography continually appears as a motif and a metaphor, most prominently in “Anecdote Concerning the Lowering of Productivity” (1963). With some fifty exhibits including pictures, books, and texts, the exhibition will showcase Böll’s varied engagement with photography.

In addition, the first volume of a new series of publications on the photography collection entitled Die humane Kamera. Heinrich Böll und die Fotografie will be publishedwith eleven illustrations, Heinrich Böll’s text “Die humane Kamera” and an essay by Dr. Miriam Halwani. Price 8 Euros. ISBN 987-3-9807903-6-9.

RED STAR OVER RUSSIA:
A REVOLUTION IN VISUAL CULTURE 1905 – 55
8 November 2017 – 18 February 2018

To mark the centenary of the October Revolution, this autumn Tate Modern will present Red Star over Russia: A Revolution in Visual Culture 1905 – 55. Drawn from the remarkable collection of the late graphic designer David King (1943 – 2016) the exhibition will offer a visual history of Russia and the Soviet Union. From the overthrow of the last Tsar and the revolutionary uprisings of 1917, through to the struggles of the Civil War and Stalin’s campaign of terror, the show will reveal how seismic political events led to the social transformation that inspired a wave of innovation in art and graphic design across the country.

Throughout his lifetime David King assembled one of the most comprehensive collections of Russian and Soviet material in the world, consisting of over a quarter of a million artefacts by famous and anonymous photographers, artists and designers. Featuring over 250 posters, paintings, photographs, books and ephemera, many on public display for the first time, Red Star over Russia will be a rare opportunity to explore this unique collection. It will provide a chance to understand how life and art were transformed during a momentous period in modern world history, and see how artists such as El Lissitzky, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Nina Vatolina captured the revolutionary hopes of a nation in an extraordinary outpouring of visual material.

From 1905 to 1955 Russian and Soviet citizens struggled against the odds to build a new society. The exhibition will explore how new popular art in the form of posters, periodicals, leaflets and banners informed, educated and entertained the Russian people, filtering into the everyday lives of tens of millions of citizens. One of the new propaganda tools developed by the Bolsheviks was ‘agitprop trains’, which were decorated with vivid murals and travelled the country carrying public speakers, pamphlets, film shows and a printing press to disseminate the policies of the new government. Following the October Revolution, art was taken onto the streets in the form of propaganda posters which were displayed on public squares, factories and inside people’s homes. The exhibition will feature striking examples of posters by artists such as Adolf Strakhov, Valentina Kulagina and Dmitrii Moor, whose depictions of heroic, industrial scenes and expressive use of typography captured the revolutionary fervour of the age.

A section of the exhibition will explore the impact of the 1937 ‘Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques’ in Paris, which provided an international stage for the Soviet Union to promote the achievements of its art and culture. The magnificent centrepiece of the USSR Pavilion was three giant murals by Aleksandr Deineka which were destroyed when the exhibition ended. A highlight of Red Star over Russia will be the large-scale studies which formed the basis for these dramatic murals. In stark contrast, a further section of the exhibition will be dedicated to the memory of the millions who perished in Stalin’s purges, uncovering some of the personal stories of figures erased from history. It will include poignant prison mugshots of the people who lived in tumultuous times, such as Lenin’s closest allies Lev Kamenev and Grigorii Zinoviev, both executed on false charges, and poster artist Gustav Klutsis, whose works adorned the cities squares long after his execution in 1938. Red Star over Russia will also reveal how images were manipulated during a period of widespread state censorship, to airbrush political figures from official photographs and celebrate the end of the Second World War.

Red Star over Russia: A Revolution in Visual Culture 1905 – 55 is curated by Natalia Sidlina, Adjunct Research Curator, Russian Art, Tate Modern, supported by the V-A-C Foundation, and Matthew Gale, Head of Displays,
Tate Modern, with Dina Akhmadeeva, Assistant Curator,
Collections International Art, Tate Modern,
supported by the V-A-C Foundation.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a new book by Tate publishing.

 

DAVID KING

David King was an acclaimed graphic designer, artist and historian. Born in London in 1943, King studied typography at the London College of Printing (later London School of Printing and Graphic Arts). He worked as Art Editor of The Sunday Times Magazine from 1965 to 1975 where he was credited with creating the visual identity for the supplement, characterized by dynamic picture cropping and a narrative style of photojournalism. He first travelled to Russia in 1970 on an assignment from the magazine to collect information about Trotsky. Throughout his lifetime he assembled one of the world’s most pre-eminent collections of Russian and Soviet material, consisting of over 250,000 artefacts dating from the Russian Revolution to the Khrushchev era. He presented the results of his passionate collecting and thoughtful research in a series of revelatory publications which offered a breathtaking visual history of the Soviet Union in a distinctive style. Publications include The Commissar Vanishes: The Falsification of Photographs and Art in Stalin’s Russia (1997, enlarged 2014), Ordinary Citizens: The Victims of Stalin (2003), and Red Star Over Russia: A Visual History of the Soviet Union from the Revolution to the Death of Stalin (2009). David King passed away in May 2016.

RECENT ACQUISITIONS
18.08.17 – 26.01.18

Faurschou Foundation is pleased to present the exhibition, Recent Acquisitions, which introduces a selection of the newly acquired artworks from its collection. Elmgreen & Dragset, Tracey Emin, Anselm Kiefer, Paul McCarthy, Bjarne Melgaard and Ai Weiwei, Recent Acquisitions provides an insight into Faurschou Foundation’s diverse art genre.

Since it first opened its doors in Copenhagen’s North Harbour with an explosive solo exhibition of Cai Guo-Qiang in September 2012, Faurschou Foundation has presented both group and solo exhibitions to Copenhagen, with works by some of the most important artists of our time, such as Louise Bourgeois, Ai Weiwei, Liu Xiaodong, Shirin Neshat, Christian Lemmerz, Mona Hatoum and Santiago Sierra.

The artworks presented in Recent Acquisitions highlight Faurschou Foundation’s interest in a wide variety of media, as they range from painting, sculptures, to assemblage, and, finally, light and sound installations.

Known for her personal handwritten neon phrases, Tracey Emin adds a third dimension to her words by, for the first time, framing the bright pink neon statement into a large-scale mirrored room. Anselm Kiefer creates his own unique universe between painting and sculpture, using an almost alchemical method of incorporating objects into his canvases. Paul McCarthy and Bjarne Melgaard are both recognized for their provocative approach in addressing tabooed subjects. In the presented piece, McCarthy uses macabre elements creating a vandalized and distorted sculpture, whereas Melgaard questions the concepts of beauty by creating a sculpture of a monstrous hairy creature. The Scandinavian duo, Elmgreen & Dragset, who are well known for their subtle, aesthetic and ironical way of social critique through installation works, question the art institution’s power positions. The assemblage by Ai Weiwei is made of Lego bricks. In 2015, the artist began to integrate Lego in his works, transforming iconic and historical figures and works into new media art by using a mass-produced, commercial material.

Faurschou Foundation’s collection is built on many years of collecting with passion. The collection encompasses works from different genres, media and generations. The works in Recent Acquisitions present a particular insight into this variety.

SUMMER CELEBRATION

It has been 5 years since Faurschou opened its doors to the public in Copenhagen, and 10 years since it has opened its Beijing space. To commemorate this benchmark, Faurschou Foundation invites you to the opening of Recent Acquisitions, which will take place in the Copenhagen exhibition space, followed by a festive summer celebration on the first floor above, with music, small appetizers and drinks.

FAURSCHOU FOUNDATION

Faurschou Foundation is a privately owned art institution with a collection of contemporary art, and with exhibition venues at Copenhagen North Harbour as well as Beijing’s attractive art neighbourhood 798. Faurschou Foundation introduces the visitors to some of the world’s most acclaimed artists. Faurschou Foundation’s collection is constantly developed and expanded.

Over a very short period since its establishment in 2011 Faurschou Foundation has profiled itself as a significant art institution with solo exhibitions of among other artists Cai Guo-Qiang, Louise Bourgeois, Shirin Neshat, Gabriel Orozco, Danh Vo, Bill Viola, Ai Weiwei, Yoko Ono and Peter Doig.

PRESS RELEASE
Faurschou Foundation is pleased to present some of the highest quality Virtual Reality artworks currently available in the world. The exhibition, Virtual Reality Art, will be exhibited in Beijing from August 27, 2017 to February 3, 2018, and will consist of 5 consecutive “sub-exhibitions” for each participating artist: Christian Lemmerz, Erik Parker, Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler and Yu Hong.

Virtual Reality has made a successful entry onto the global market at an unusually fast pace. In the art world, this medium is entering a ground-breaking period, enabling artists to cross boundaries and expand their field unlike ever before. It is impossible to do justice to Virtual Reality artworks with a mere description, which is why, in order to understand them, one must experience them first-hand. The medium, thus, literally, opens up an entirely new world for both artists and viewers.

In collaboration with Khora Contemporary, Faurschou Foundation has worked with several internationally renowned contemporary artists to create Virtual Reality art, namely Christian Lemmerz, Erik Parker, Paul McCarthy and Tony Oursler. With this new exhibition, the Foundation will also reveal a new piece by Chinese artist, Yu Hong. Each artwork will be exhibited for a one-month period with complementary sketches, books and artworks for each of the artists and their respective VR pieces.

Faurschou Foundation is glad to continue collaborating with Khora Contemporary after the successful exhibition, New Media (Virtual Reality), in connection to the Venice Biennale 2017. Khora Contemporary was established in 2016 in Copenhagen by five partners with a common passion for art, and a shared vision of VR’s significance in the art landscape of the future. Khora Contemporary conducts extensive research on this progressive medium, and specializes in translating the vision of established and emerging artists into the language of VR. This makes Khora Contemporary the first production company to focus on creating contemporary artworks in Virtual Reality.

27.08. – 29.09.2017

Entering the virtual reality of Lemmerz’s La Apparizione, one encounters the “Crucified One.” A golden, tortured body, released from the cross and floating in absolute darkness, his wounds revealing flesh and blood behind the glistening, metal surface of his skin. Exposed to the viewer through the extreme visuality of the VR medium is a fusion between the suffering “Saviour” and a bodybuilder, bordering on vulgarity. In this space, between pathos and irony, between fake and real, the Silver Surfer and Jesus Christ, the bodily event of death is endured – this death that we live.

Christian Lemmerz was born in Germany in 1959. Today he lives and works in Denmark and Italy. From 1978 to 1982, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara, Italy, and from 1983 to 1988 at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Lemmerz expresses himself in a variety of media, from film, performance, sculpture, drawing, painting, to installation works. Lemmerz has explored highly unconventional materials, such as his early organic sculptures made of margarine, or a work consisting of slaughtered pigs exhibited in glass cases. He also works with traditional materials, ranging from bronze to marble. Many of Lemmerz’s works focus on taboo-related themes, taken from contemporary, as well as historical events, where suffering, death, identity, and existence are central themes. The human body and the medium of sculpture have been particularly important to Lemmerz’s work, enabling the viewer to become an active participant. Lemmerz has had major solo exhibitions at Randers Art Museum (Denmark), SMK, National Gallery of Denmark, Aros (Aarhus Art Museum, Denmark), Cisternerne (Copenhagen, Denmark), and has exhibited in Stavanger, Beijing, New York and Sao Paulo.
