INSIDE

PALAIS DE TOKYO, PARIS

Jean-Michel Alberola and Tunga are part of the Inside group exhibition at Palais de Tokyo (Oct 20 – January 11). Inside offers visitors a passage to the interior of the self, for which the exhibition space serves as a metaphor. This immense odyssey, both physical and psychological, invites us to walk through two floors of the Palais de Tokyo that have been transformed by artists in such a way that, from one installation to the next, we remain constantly immersed in the works, which lead us within ourselves – from our skin to our most intimate thoughts. With : Jean-Michel ALBEROLA, Dove ALLOUCHE, Yuri ANCARANI, Sookoon ANG, Christophe BERDAGUER & Marie PEJUS, Christian BOLTANSKI, Peter BUGGENHOUT, Marc COUTURIER, Nathalie DJURBERG & Hans BERG, dran, Marcius GALAN, Ryan GANDER, Ion GRIGORESCU, HU Xiaoyuan, Eva JOSPIN, Jesper JUST, Mikhail KARIKIS & Uriel ORLOW, Mark MANDERS, Bruce NAUMAN, Mike NELSON, NUMEN/FOR USE, Abraham POINCHEVAL Araya RASDJARMREARNSOOK, Reynold REYNOLDS & Patrick JOLLEY, Ataru SATO, Stéphane THIDET, TUNGA, Andra URSUTA, Valia FETISOV, Andro WEKUA, Artur ZMIJEWSKI.

From August 30th 2014 to June 7th 2015 Japanese performance and installation artist Chiharu Shiota installs a monumental yet intimate work in the Sackler pavilion this summer.

James Casebere
JAMES CASEBERE – SCALES AND DIMENSIONS

CORNELL UNIVERSITY, ITHAKA, USA

From August 24th to September 20th 2014 Scales and Dimensions presents a broad interdisciplinary practice joining art and architecture. Rarely does artist James Casebere reveal the scale models that contribute to the “work,” defined as the photograph. This exhibit is uniquely organized to engage students and faculty in the creative process behind the work. The show reveals the artistry of how modeling is handled in the creation of an image conceptualized from specific vantage points.John Hartell Gallery will feature Casebere’s recent work, mostly from the Landscape with Houses (Dutchess County) series featuring several very large framed photographs and, unusually, a display of the corresponding scale models that were used to create the photographs. Olive Tjaden Gallery will exhibit highlights of other projects, including pieces from his Vaulted Corridor, Tunnel, Hallway, and Spanish Bath series. (…)

Chiharu Shiota
STATE OF BEING (CHEETAH) SITE SPECIFIC INSTALLATION

VIEILLE CHARITE, MARSEILLES, FRANCE

JULY 18 – OCTOBER 19, 2014 In the same vein as Marina Abramovic, Chiharu Shiota places the body at the heart of her sculptural work, weaving huge environments out of black threads that imprison objects. Thus liberated from any useful purpose, they generate new poetic and moving visions. After selecting 10 costumes from Le Guépard designed by Luisa Spinatelli, Chiharu Shiota has devised an unusual installation for the Ballet National de Marseille and the Vieille Charité that is both monumental and delicate. co-organised by the Ballet National de Marseille & Museums of Marseille An exceptional setting for contemporary installations, since its renovation the chapel of the Vieille Charité has welcomed works by renowned international artists the likes of Christian Boltanski (Les anges, Les ombres, 1986), Gabriel Orozco (Oval Billiard Table, 1996) and Javier Perez (La Torre de Sonido, 2001).

René Wirths
OUT OF THE WORLD

KUNSTHALLE KREMS FACTORY, KREMS, AUSTRIA 

From Sunday 13 July to Sunday 09 November 2014 Ever since the late 1990s, the Berlin-based artist René Wirths (b. 1967) has recurrently made one carefully chosen object the absolute center of his attention for the period of time it takes him to create its picture. His choice of motifs ranges from organic—a butterfly—to inorganic—a simple crumpled paper boat, an old sneaker—and to the metallic and shiny object of desire, a motorbike. But however strong the presence of each of these objects may seem, shown frontally or in strict profile mounted on a stretcher, larger-than-life and standing out against a white background, they still are but a means to an end, or the vehicle of a consistent analysis which, by balancing painterly potentials, generates iconic paintings.

Julião Sarmento
JULIAO SARMENTO

MAMAC (MUSEE D'ART MODERNE ET D'ART CONTEMPORAIN), NICE, FRANCE

Du 28 juin au 30 novembre 2014 Au plus près de la création, le MAMAC met en dialogue la scène artistique locale, nationale et internationale en portant un regard tout particulier sur les relations France-États-Unis et Nice-Italie du Nord. Plus largement, le musée est attentif à l’actualité artistique européenne : Barry Flanagan en 2002, Jan Fabre en 2003, Jean-Pierre Raynaud en 2006, Michelangelo Pistoletto en 2007, Jaume Plensa et Richard Long en 2008, Wim Delvoye en 2010 sont quelques-uns des artistes qui ont réalisé une exposition personnelle au musée. La monographie de Julião Sarmento s’inscrit dans cette démarche. Né en 1948 à Lisbonne, où il vit et travaille, Julião Sarmento est l’un des principaux représentants du renouveau artistique portugais ayant suivi la chute de l’Estado Novo. (…)

VIALLAT A RETROSPECTIVE

MUSEE FABRE, MONTPELLIER, FRANCE 

From June 28th to November 2nd 2014 Étudiant à l’École des Beaux-Arts de Montpellier en 1955-1959, puis à celle de Paris en 1962-63, Claude Viallat invente en 1966 une forme neutre, proche d’une palette ou d’un osselet. Il sera un des fondateurs, en 1969, du mouvement Supports/Surfaces, remettant en question les supports traditionnels de la peinture et libérera la toile de son châssis pour peindre sur des toiles libres. Composée d’une centaine d’oeuvres, l’exposition retrace le parcours de l’artiste de ses premières œuvres à aujourd’hui. Elle explore toutes les techniques et matériaux employés par l’artiste, des dessins d’étude aux formats les plus monumentaux. (…)  

Joel Shapiro
JOEL SHAPIRO AT PORTLAND ART MUSEUM

PORTLAND ART MUSEUM, OREGON, USA

JUNE 21 – SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 Internationally celebrated sculptor Joel Shapiro has created a new installation work for the Museum’s Contemporary Art Series exhibition. Part of a recent body of work investigating the use of painted wood forms to activate space and dynamically alter the experience of it both in visual and physical terms, the Portland installation will be only the fifth suspended installation he has realized. Engaging the volume of the Schnitzer Sculpture Court, the suspended elements of the work defy gravity and the traditional restrictions ascribed to sculpture that place it of the ground or pedestal. The painted wood elements visually reorganize the architecture, and are continuously redefining the visitor’s optical and physical relationship to the work and architecture as they move through the work. Shapiro notes that this newest body of work is about “the projection of thought into space without the constraint of architecture.” Animated by position and the exuberantly vibrant colors, the work denies the static nature of sculpture and appropriates aspects of painting to suggest being inside an abstract painting or perhaps a stop-action digital game.

LE MUR – WORKS FROM THE ANTOINE DE GALBERT COLLECTION(GROUP SHOW)

LA MAISON ROUGE, FONDATION ANTOINE DE GALBERT, PARIS, FRANCE 

From June 14th to September 21st 2014 À l’occasion de son 10e anniversaire, la maison rouge présente du 14 juin au 21 septembre 2014,
Le mur – oeuvres de la collection Antoine de Galbert, onzième volet de la série d’expositions consacrées aux collections privées. Après dix expositions proposant des univers de collectionneurs variés, cette date anniversaire est l’occasion de montrer enfin largement la collection du fondateur et président de la maison rouge, Antoine de Galbert, une part d’intimité qui lui est chère et qu’il n’a jusqu’à présent que peu dévoilée. Mais à l’inverse des précédents projets autour de collections particulières, réalisés avec des commissaires qui ont fait des choix représentatifs dans de larges corpus d’œuvres, l’accrochage imaginé par Antoine de Galbert comporte cette fois-ci une spécificité remarquable : « L’idée de cette exposition est née de l’observation quotidienne de ma bibliothèque, où le classement alphabétique des monographies crée d’invraisemblables voisinages. Jean Dubuffet cohabite avec Marcel Duchamp sur le même rayonnage. Cette “arche de Noé” me donne la sensation que tous les artistes naviguent sur le même fleuve pour les mêmes raisons, comme le remarque Christian Boltanski : « Que ce soit Aloïse, moi ou un artiste du 16e siècle, ce sont les mêmes questions qui sont posées : la mort, la recherche de la beauté, la nature, le sexe… Les sujets en art sont très limités. Seuls les mots et les vocabulaires diffèrent (…)». La bibliothèque est tout à la fois archive de la collection, souvenirs visuels d’un long voyage et musée imaginaire du collectionneur. […] Délaissant l’idée déjà explorée par certains commissaires d’expositions, d’un accrochage par ordre alphabétique, j’ai choisi de présenter l’essentiel des œuvres de ma collection, s’accrochant au mur, à l’aide d’un logiciel renseigné seulement par leurs formats (encadrées) et leurs numéros d’inventaires.

JULIAO SARMENTO. THE SELECTIVE GLANCE

GAM - GALLERIA CIVICA D'ARTE MODERNA E CONTEMPORANEA, TORINO, ITALY   

From June 13th to July 31st 2014 Turin GAM pays a special tribute to Portuguese artist Julião Sarmento, mounting an exceptional show which opens the third chapter of Dialogues, the exhibition project aimed at creating a dialogue between accomplished artists active in the contemporary international art scene and works chosen from the permanent collections.   This exhibition, mounted in the spaces of GAM Underground Project on a surface of over 1000 sq m, is an important testimony to the artist’s work, more than 15 years after his first and only exhibition in a museum in Italy, the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Bologna.  
GAM is showcasing the development of Sarmento’s art research following a rigorous curatorial point of view organised according to thematic criteria, analysing his oeuvre with a critical outlook. Starting from the works revolving around the feminine figure and the object, and finishing with the works devoted to architecture, including the two 2010 Cromlech and 2011 R.O.C. (40 plus one) videos, wherein the woman-architecture union is recomposed. (…)

PHILIPPE COGNéE

CHAMBORD CASTLE, 2ND FLOOR, DOMAINE NATIONAL DE CHAMBORD, FRANCE 

From May 18th to October 12th 2014 Philippe Cognée est sans conteste aujourd’hui l’un des plus peintres les plus importants de la scène française. Profondément marqué par son enfance au Bénin, il commence à peindre au cours des années 1980 des paysages intrigants,  peuplés d’animaux sauvages et d’être humains empruntant au douanier Rousseau. Au cours de son séjour à la villa Médicis en 1991, son travail prend une tournure différente et décisive : l’artiste développe une pratique singulière qui s’inspire de la photographie, associée à un travail sur les effets de la peinture à l’encaustique chauffée sur la toile. (…)
