Pierre et Gilles : Le goût du cinéma - Solo show


The French artist duo Pierre et Gilles has accepted, for the city of Cannes, to create an exhibition and a scenography based on paintings related to the city's passion for the film industry. The paintings are historical works and works created especially for the exhibition, sometimes portraits of actors who have posed for them, but also compositions and visual processes reminiscent of those of the 7th art.

Ivan Navarro

Ivan Navarro : BIFOCAL


The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires presents BIFOCAL, a solo exhibition of the internationally recognized Chilean artist Iván Navarro. In collaboration with Revolver Galería (Buenos Aires and Lima), Templon Galerie (París), Galería Isabel Aninat (Santiago de Chile) and Luciana Brito Galeria (SãIno Paulo), the show will feature a selection of more than fifteen artworks, including neon sculptures and audio-visual installations. Navarro's work seeks to explore the aesthetic and political dimensions of electricity through perceptual alterations stimulating the spectator in a sensorial and psychological way. Thereby, the artist achieves to reinvent everyday objects to criticize power institutions and ponder about Chilean history.

Gérard Garouste

Meeting with Gérard Garouste, a major figure in French painting - conference


Charlotte Chastel-Rousseau, co-curator of the ongoing Greco exhibition in Paris, interviews Gérard Garouste, a major figure in French painting and great admirer of the Spanish master, at the Grand Palais as part of the "Greco à deux voix" series of talks.
Gérard Garouste questions the origins of our culture, ancient masters’ heritage and the myths. His paintings are in turn disturbing and joyful, populated by different characters sometimes close to those of Greco. Spanish painting, of which he loves the strength, the colours, the profusion of blacks and the mystical side, had a fundamental role in his decision to become a painter.

Abdelkader Benchamma

Fata Bromosa - Solo show


For his first solo exhibition in a French museum, Abdelkader Benchamma invests three rooms at Mrac Occitanie with an immersive installation drawing inspiration from his residence at Villa Médicis in autumn 2018. In Rome, Abdelkader Benchamma is fascinated by the richness of church decorations, in particular by the representation of marbles in the works of the Renaissance painter Fra Angelico. The Old Master’s depictions render the illusion of precious stones by playing on symmetry of veins, thus creating spiritually charged abstract forms. The title of the exhibition, Fata Bromosa, (literally Fairy of the Mists) refers to that blurring of perception dear to Fra Angelico. The term indicates an optical phenomenon observed by navigators in the Middle Ages which gives the impression of a bright-rimmed fog perceptible on the horizon. To depict without representing seems to be the artist's ambition: drawing become an emanation of nature, but of a different kind, intimate and unfathomable.

Circadian Rhythms: contemporary art and biological time - Group show


All life on earth - humans, other animals, plants and even bacteria - carry out biological processes to a 24-hour pattern of activity that mirrors the length of the earth day. Such processes are said to be subject to certain rhythms as they oscillate at different points during the 24-hour cycle, always following the same pattern of activity. Circadian Rhythms presents the work of Irish and international artists who explore these invisible forces through reflections on time, the cadence of working life, sleeping patterns, as well as through the impact of modern technologies that disrupt the natural world.

Comeback. Art Historical Renaissance in Contemporary Art - Group show


Art history is making a comeback in the visual arts. Artists not only copy and appropriate paintings from bygone eras, but also respond more freely and playfully to the "mnemic energies" (Aby Warburg) stored in ancient works. More and more frequently, they try to summon up the collective heritage through performative strategies as well as through photographic and cinematic media.

Gérard Garouste

Gérard Garouste et l'école des prophètes - Solo show


This Summer, Gérard Garouste has expressed the wish to install some of his works in the new rooms of the Remembrance Place of Chambon sur Lignon. Familiar with the Talmud, the artist wanted to know more about these young Jews, who in the darkest hours of Nazism had reflected on the revival of Jewish thought by calling themselves, with a touch of provocation, the School of prophets.

Gérard Garouste's painting draws its inspiration from the Talmudic tradition, the horror of the Shoah and its personal history. The exhibition offers a journey between painting and biblical texts, between art and history, around a selection of paintings that resonate with the reflections of this group of thinkers.

Tattoo, L’Arte sulla pelle - Group show


M9 - The Museum of the 20th Century presents the Tattoo Exhibition, Stories on skin, organized in collaboration with Fondazione Torino Musei. The exhibition explores the worldwide and creative dimension of tattoos from an anthropological, historical, artistic and social point of view.

Tattooing is a practice which has accompanied humanity since the dawn of time to the point that we find examples in mummified bodies in Europe, Asia and Africa. It is a means of expression which has never been abandoned, although its meaning has changed throughout the centuries: the intense tangle of contaminations and exchanges among different cultures, between East and West, which has always characterized the history of tattooing, goes on today with greater force amid a globalized world where cultural and commercial exchanges are intense and continuous. It has always been a phenomenon connected to forms of social marginality – according to Genesis, the first person tattooed in history is Cain – but at the same time is a form of art and a big mass phenomenon.

The exhibition also displays numerous works by international contemporary artists: Wim Delvoye, Santiago Serra, Dr. Lakra, Mary Coble Fabio Viale. Photographs by Pierre et Gilles, Catherine Opie, Tobias Zielony, Sergei Vasiliev Plinio Martelliand Oliviero Toscani.

Daughters - Solo show


Château Malromé is pleased to welcome in its walls, during this summer 2019, about twenty works of Prune Nourry previously exhibited from Spring to Autumn 2017 at the Guimet Museum (Paris). In this series of works, Prune Nourry has seized upon a problem particular to Indian and Chinese societies, the disappearance of a whole age-class of little girls caused by the use of prenatal predictive medical techniques in favor of boys. These sculptures, in a new scenography of Benjamin Gabrié, find new echoes in Malromé, family home of Toulouse-Lautrec.

An exciting initiative that reflects the diversity of African aesthetic heritage, stripped of any Eurocentric prism and including the influence of diasporas, slave routes, colonialism or independence movements. From the impressive collection of Sindika Dokolo, the productions of African artists resonate with those of the diaspora while contemporary works of art will be presented alongside classical works, finally opening the way to the unveiling of African art, understood as a living philosophical practice.

Bienalsur, Home sweet home - Group show


How much do the spaces we inhabit say about us? What forms do such spaces take? In what way do they reflect our lifestyle? If the home is the border limit between outside and inside, public and private, safety and uncertainty, “home” is also the projection of our own body (and in particular our mind) as a kind of microcosm which with to dispute the immensity of the universe. In the context of this exhibition, we conceive of home as a space-time where we unfurl the experience of inhabitation, anchoring men and women’s primary desire to occupy a place in the world, which is also the springboard for imagination to take flight.

ALBEROlaBELLEROJOUX - Group show


While so many points bring them together, and they are important references for the current generation of artists and commentators, Jean-Michel Alberola and Arnaud Labelle-Rojoux have, inexplicably, never been exhibited together.

In the imposing setting of the Convent of the Minimes, seven secular« chapels » will host, like so many chapters of a book, the recent productions of the two artists, in a telescoping worthy of a synchrocyclotron of thought and art. This visual and mental bombardment should allow the viewer to "see", that is to say to access, even incompletely, even imperfectly, the energetic poetic and political charge lurking in the heart of these works .

Tableau and Transformation: Photography from the Permanent Collection - Group show


“Tableau and Transformation” presents an overview of the Tampa Museum of Art’s holdings in 20th-century photography, a cornerstone of the Museum’s permanent collection. The exhibition looks at how artists have used distinct darkroom effects and studio practices to create new narratives in photography.  Artists such as James Casebere, Robert Cumming, Stephen Frailey, Sandy Skoglund, and William Wegman create constructed environments, often blurring the boundaries of truth and fiction in their images. Photographers Blythe Bohnen, Duane Michals, Arnulf Rainer, Lucas Samaras, Cindy Sherman examine the transformation of one’s self as a means to explore identity, gender, and place. This exhibition features approximately 50 photographs with objects ranging in date from the mid-1960s to through the early 2000s, predominately drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection.

Claude Viallat

Re - commencer - Solo show


Claude Viallat is a confirmed artist, one of the very first French artists of his generation, but his work finds today a very contemporary resonance as the ecological consciousness develops, the return to practices and craft techniques, to a know-how that is a way of resisting hyper mechanization, technological development, digital dematerialization and the reversal of man's position in his environment. The unseemly part that we perceive in Claude Viallat's work, this impertinence sought in support, form or color, this unexpected, this unfinished, this precariousness, has the character of an absolute youth.

The heart of the exhibition is the works shown in 1980 at CAPC de Bordeaux, a major and pivotal exhibition in Viallat's work through the use of a dense support, the exploration of polychrome and the cutting of the canvas in colour charts. This exhibition marked a turning point in Viallat's practice and consecrated him as one of the greatest colourists of his time

Eighties and Echoes - Group show


The new pictorial approaches that emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s set themselves against a domination of abstraction and a reductive avant-garde ideology: dictate of rupture, death of the painting, linear and progressive vision art. However, since the beginning of their training at the Beaux-Arts, a new generation of painters choose to re-examine the tradition of painting, the figure, the illusion of depth, feeding on a multitude of models. The exhibition "Aux sources du 1980s" questions their imaginary museum.

Looking at different relationships to the past, understood as a way of renewing painting, the works that are showcased interact sometimes with a specific model, sometimes reactivate traditional subjects around three major themes: the individual and society, love and otherness, nature and the sacred.

Mouvement Supports/Surfaces : retrouver l'économie des gestes simples - Group show


As part of the Croisements 2019 Festival organized by the French Institute in Beijing, the Meymac Center for Contemporary Art presents the first exhibition of the Supports / Surfaces movement in China. This group of artists, who emerged in France in the mid-1960s, revolutionized the visual arts through a new use of materials. Their project: to free the pictorial art from the historical and cultural straitjacket represented by the canvas.

Model Natures in Contemporary Photography - Group show


The international group exhibition "Model Natures" is dedicated to a fascinating area of contemporary photography: Iandscape. The exhibition presents impressive landscapes. But on closer inspection, it turns out that these are not photographs of actual landscapes, but deceptively real images of models.

Été pourri, peinture fraiche - Group show


The FRAC Champagne-Ardenne collection includes a series of remarkable paintings that, without retracing the entire history of this medium, highlight high-quality individual practices. “Eté pourri fresh paint" (rotten Summer, fresh paint) is the title of a series of drawings by Robert Malaval (FRAC Champagne-Ardenne collection) whose work, mixing rock, pop aesthetic, the end of the world, the festive and the tragic participated in the decompartmentalization of artistic practices. Painting, sculpture, performance and music were intertwined by Robert Malaval, whose practice has inspired many artists. A discrete tribute to this total and excessive commitment, the exhibition brings together artists whose approach is free from the weight of the millennial history of painting to reinvent it, to divert it, to imagine new rules.

Pattern, Crime & Decoration - Group show


Le Consortium examines in this large group exhibition the “Pattern & Decoration” movement, formed in the 1970s and that enjoyed international success in the 1980s.

Most of the artists involved were reacting against the dominance of abstract schools in the Post-War era, with a particular opposition to Minimal and Conceptual art. The group organized around “pattern and decoration” reconnected with what was widely perceived as “minor” art forms and asserted decoration as the true repressed of modernity. 

The exhibition, co-organized with MAMCO in Geneva, also includes several pieces by artists associated with the Supports/Surfaces group: Noël Dolla and Claude Viallat.

Produced in Portuguese stone, a million-year-old natural resource, they share this unifying element that bestows them with a deep timelessness and resilience, somewhat contradicting the chaos and superficiality of the contemporary world. Placed within the gardens of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, immersed in nature and displayed together, these pieces provide visitors with moments of experimentation and confrontation, underlining the value of art and culture in public spaces.

The man who measures the clouds - Biennale di Venezia


On the occasion of the 58th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, Jan Fabre returns to the Lagoon with the presentation of a special public art project. Installed inside the Garden of Palazzo Balbi Valier and visible from the Grand Canal, the monumenal sculpture in gold leaf "The Man who Measures the Clouds (Monument to the Measure of the Immeasurable)", stands nine meters high . Designed specifically for Venice, it recalls a deep bond with this city, established over the past decades. Leaning over the arch leading to the Garden of Palazzo Balbi Valier from the Grand Canal, this imposing man of gold reflects not only the drift of the artist and humanity, but also the meaning and historical values of this mythical floating city.

Souvenirs de voyage. La collection de Galbert - Group show


The collection of Antoine de Galbert, "soft and luxurious therapy", as he says himself, highlights his taste for decompartmentalization while reflecting his deepest obsessions. In contrast with a sometimes austere and sanitized vision of contemporary art, this collection does not hesitate to bring together conceptual art and popular cultures, outsider art and emerging artists. Abolishing boundaries and privileging the mixing of genres, Antoine de Galbert likes to find his way off the beaten track considering that the time in which we live more than ever needs magic, mystery, simplicity and universality.

FEAST OF FOOLS - Groups show


Pieter Bruegel is often seen as the embodiment of Flemish identity. Why has that been so since the revival of his work around 1900? How has he grown to become an icon, an inexhaustible source of inspiration and a huge cliché? In the exhibition 'Feast of Fools. Bruegel Rediscovered' the visitor becomes acquainted with a series of key works by modern masters and creations by contemporary artists who ‘have a thing for Bruegel’. They latch onto his themes, reinterpret them, quote him ... and thus demonstrate that his work has lost none of its relevance.

Chiharu Shiota

Line of Thought - Solo show


Chiharu Shiota originally studied painting in Kyoto. She completed her studies in Berlin with Marina Abramovic and Rebecca Horn, whose influence is notable particularly in Shiota’s early works. She explores subjects such as memory and forgetting, presence and absence of the body as well as the interwoven and multi-faceted nature of human relationships.
All of her works form poetic, pulsating bodies within space and have a direct connection with her earlier performances. To Shiota, the threads and their interweaving also symbolize the extension of life beyond the body, such as in sleep and dreams, in thought and imagination – invisible connections that her webs make visible.

And Berlin Will Always Need You. Art, Craft and Concept Made in Berlin -
Group show


The Gropius Bau explores the concept of crafts and handmade processes in Berlin’s contemporary art scene, taking its history as a former museum for decorative arts and educational institution as a starting point.
Multiple aspects come into focus when looking at the selection of works exhibited, ranging from the ornamental and decorative, which is reminiscent of visual motifs found in Eastern religions and Byzantine mosaics, to the history of design in Modernism and the twentieth-century, involving craftsmanship from Berlin to South America. 
The exhibition shows the incredible variety of artistic practices that can be found in Berlin today and demonstrates the Gropius Bau’s commitment to continue to provide a regular platform for Berlin artists.

In his relation to animals, man seeks to define his singularity, the nature of what constitutes the essence of his identity. These multiple contacts, sometimes marked by promiscuity, are both inevitable and necessary. He cannot ignore or do without this vital relationship. From the insect to the mammal, encompassing fish and birds, from tiny to gigantic, from familiar to exotic, the animal challenges humanity on the place it presumes to be its own in the world.

Thierry Mugler, Couturissime - Group show


The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is presenting the very first exhibition on the work of French creator Thierry Mugler. Initiated, produced and circulated by the MMFA, this retrospective reveals the multiple worlds of this irrepressible artistic figure – at once visionary couturier, director, photographer and perfumer – by revisiting his prêt-à-porter and haute couture creations.

Premiering in Montreal, Thierry Mugler: Couturissime brings together more than 150 garments made between 1973 and 2001, most of which are being shown for the first time, as well as a wealth of unpublished archival documents and sketches. One hundred or so photographs by such world-renowned fashion photographers as Helmut Newton, Sarah Moon, Pierre et Gilles, David LaChapelle, Paolo Roversi, Herb Ritts, Dominique Issermann, Guy Bourdin and Richard Avedon, to name a few, round out the show.

Age of classics! L’Antiquité dans la culture pop - Group show


The heritage of Ancient Greece and Rome has had a lasting influence on the medieval and modern periods. The latter have absorbed, preserved, assimilated and transformed this heritage. In turn, the contemporary world and popular (pop) culture have appropriated classical models in order to give birth to new heroes and new forms of art in a globalized context. 
Age of Classics brings together antique objects and productions made after the year 2000 and examines our relationship to the Greco-Roman world in various aspects of our daily lives: literature, comics, cinema and series, the visual arts, etc. How does Europe reinterpret its heritage? What is the connection between Greece, Rome and the United States of America? How and why does Asia explore Western history in its cultural productions? And in what ways has Antiquity been perpetuated in the face of today’s evolving society?

Omar Ba

Same Dream - solo show


The Power Plant presents Omar Ba's first institutional solo exhibition.Omar Ba’s work engages with some of the most urgent issues of our time: the growing inequality of wealth and power globally, questions around immigration, and our changing relationship with the natural world. His penchant for depicting personal narratives alongside collective ones speaks to the“in-between” condition of his work, as he splits his time between Dakar, Senegal and Geneva, Switzerland, and blends the visual texture of both places through his practice. Ba draws from and intertwines a range of elements— the historical and contemporary, figurative and abstract imagery—from African and European cultures, and the techniques and tools he employs; including corrugated cardboard and canvas, paintbrushes and his hands. Additionally, Ba’s chosen materials are typically selected from his immediate surroundings and repurposed in creative ways. He prepares his surfaces—whether cardboard, canvas or wall—with a black ground, upon which he layers a vivid palette dominated by primary colours. His paintings teem with details as micro-worlds transpire within larger constellations, oscillating between bold planes of colour and intricate outlines, which unravel across their surfaces. The figures and forms portrayed are largely symbolic, referring not to specific individuals, but rather open to universal narratives. 
 
Same Dream brings together several of Ba’s paintings depicting dictators and authority figures, who lead corrupt and violent regimes across the African continent and in other parts of the world, particularly where the legacies of colonialism persist. At times represented as hybrid beasts—part human, part animal— these despotic warlords are typically enveloped in an abundance of lush flora and fauna. Indeed, nature becomes a recurring force across Ba’s oeuvre. These biomorphic shapes are often inspired by Senegal’s dazzling coastal environment in which Ba grew up. In conversation with this group of paintings, the exhibition also presents works that reveal Ba’s affinity for portraying the strength of the human spirit --depictions of youth who, regardless of where they are, share some of the same dreams for the future. For the exhibition at The Power Plant, Ba has developed a new large-scale work directly on the walls of the gallery, exploring a recurrent motif of birth, death and reincarnation across different cultures today. The world of Omar Ba’s painting is a hybrid one, ultimately evoking a shared cosmogony between humans, plants and animals.
 
Event January 26, 1.00 pm, Studio Theatre, Harbourfront Center, Free admission :  In Conversation, Omar Ba & Nabila Abdel Nabi. In this program, Omar Ba will discuss the evolution of his work with Associate Curator Nabila Abdel Nabi. The two will expand on the exhibition themes of the human spirit and the shared dreams and desires for the future. This conversation will conclude with questions from the audience.
 
Curator: Nabila Abdel Nabi.

Vingt-quatre heures de la vie d'une femme - Group show


250 works novelize the intimate and the universal.

The exhibition Vingt-quatre heures de la vie d'une femme (twenty-four hours of a woman's life) tells the story of an imaginary and multiple day. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and objects of design illustrate this fiction of everyday life, from awakening to dreaming. The works are presented differently, in a spirit closer to everyone’s everyday life, reconnecting art to the present. It's about telling another history of art: a history of emotions and life.
