Raymond Pettibon: TH‘ EXPLOSIYV SHOYRT T

29 April - 24 June 2017
banner image
Pettibon's work embraces a wide spectrum of American high and low culture, from the deviations of marginal youth to art history, sports, religion, politics, sexuality, and literature. Taking their point of departure in the Southern California punk-rock scene of the late 1970s and 1980s and the do-it-yourself aesthetic of album covers, comics, concert flyers, and fanzines that characterized the movement, his drawings have come to occupy their own genre of potent and dynamic artistic commentary.
 
The exhibition includes drawings and collages—a relatively new introduction within the artist's oeuvre—in Pettibon's characteristic bold style. The title (here rewritten using the artist's personalized spelling) refers to a 1963 book by legendary American football coach Homer Rice, which details his variation on the so-called T-formation, the precursor to most modern offensive formations in the sport. The potent and aggressive associations of the phrase are echoed throughout the works on view, which shrewdly address facets of contemporary American life.

Steven Claydon: The Archipelago of Contented Peoples: Endurance Groups

22 April – 09 July 2017
banner image
Steven Claydon is known for sculptural work that examines the changing value of objects – aesthetic, functional and financial – a theme that has become more pertinent against the backdrop of threats to cultural heritage internationally. Working with a range of carefully sourced and fabricated components, encompassing the arcane and the high-tech, Claydon plays out the processes whereby objects come into being, accrue meaning, and endure and transform through environmental and cultural shifts.
 
For his exhibition at The Common Guild, Claydon presents a group of new works spanning sculpture, installation and sound, in which he addresses the ideas of jeopardy and pressure. Claydon’s work often draws a parallel between physical pressures – such as those experienced at great depth, altitude, or in a vacuum – and the subtler kinds of pressures that are imposed on objects in terms of how they are used, viewed, presented or aestheticised within any given social or institutional context.

JIM SHAW: THE WIG MUSEUM

25 May - 17 September 2017
banner image

Jim Shaw: The Wig Museum highlights Shaw’s over thirty-year engagement with America’s social, political, and spiritual histories through the nation’s vernacular and fringe cultures. The Wig Museum is Jim Shaw’s first, long overdue, comprehensive solo exhibition in Los Angeles, home to the artist since the 1970s. The exhibition cuts across his entire body of work comprised of painting, sculpture, drawing, and installation.

Louise Lawler: WHY PICTURES NOW at the MOMA New York

30 April - 30 July 2017
banner image

WHY PICTURES NOW, the first New York museum survey of the work of American artist Louise Lawler, is an exploration of her creative output, which has inspired fellow artists and cultural thinkers alike for the past four decades. The exhibition consists of a sequence of mural-scale, “adjusted to fit” images set in dynamic relation to non-linear groupings of photographs—of collectors’ homes, auction houses, and museum installations—distinctive of Lawler’s conceptual exercises. Additionally, a deceptively empty space presents black-and-white tracings of Lawler’s photographs that have been printed on vinyl and mounted directly to the wall. A display of the artist’s ephemera from the 1970s to today highlights the feminist and performative undercurrents of her art. The defiant, utterly quizzical sound piece Birdcalls (1972/81), for which the artist turned the names of well-known male artists into bird-like squawks and twitters, will be installed in the Museum’s Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. In foregrounding her work’s relationship to the economies of collaboration and exchange, Lawler shifts focus from the individual picture to the broader history of art. Her careful attention to artistic contexts, modes of presentation, and viewers’ receptions generates witty, affective situations that contribute to institutional transformation. 

David Noonan at The Glucksman

14 April - 9 July 2017
banner image
The theatre is traditionally seen as a space of storytelling and illusion, where the spectator surrenders to the narrative. In Enter Stage Left, various dramatic devices such as sets, props, lighting and scripts, are used by Irish and international artists to explore and disrupt the enchantment of thespian conventions. The exhibition is a peek behind the scenes, a revealing look at the craft of theatre and the ways in which artists have reimagined the stage through the prism of art.
 
Enter Stage Left includes work by artists whose practice delves into realms of stagecraft. Drawing on influences from the worlds of design, ballet, and music, as well as performance, their works reveal the hidden mechanics behind the staged production and the ways in which the theatre itself reflects wider social and political ideas.
 
Enter Stage Left: the craft of theatre in art
Artists: Ella de Búrca, Lothar Götz, Aoibheann Greenan, Barbara Kasten, Gareth Kennedy, David Noonan, Alexandre Singh, and Althea Thauberger.
 
Exhibition curated by Chris Clarke and Fiona Kearney.

 

Dorota Jurczak at The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw

March 25, 2017
banner image

The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw opens in its new premises on the banks of the Vistula with an exhibition entitled “The Beguiling Siren is Thy Crest”. It delves into the cultural connotations of Warsaw’s symbol, and its universality in the context of creating a modern urban identity.

Depictions of the siren have changed so often over the centuries, that the one thing they all have in common seems to be her dualistic, hybrid nature: she is both human and animal. Appearing on Warsaw’s medieval coat of arms is – surprisingly – a half-man, half-dragon figure. The image of the fish-woman became prevalent as late as the beginning of the 18th century. The exhibition focuses on this diversity of forms. The birdlike siren is depicted (among others) in Pablo Picasso sketches, the collages of Anglo-American surrealist Penny Slinger or the paintings of Dorota Jurczak.

Carter - American Painting

March 10, 2017
banner image

For his third solo exhibition at Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Carter has swapped the brush for a manual sewing machine, has interwoven towels into the picture support and has changed his reduced color range from blue, grey and black to a rich multicolored spectrum. Although paint is still applied to the surface he has introduced an incredibly detailed stitching using brightly colored thread. Nevertheless Carter’s artistic style remains unique, distinctive and individual. It consists of subtle variations of repeating colors, such as pink, red, light blue or neon yellow and green. Shapes of hand-sewn faces, meticulously sewn eyes, wide opened mouths with brightly colored lips and teeth, stuck out tongues and floating heads manically run through his entire new body of work. The facial images live in a space that’s perhaps both absurd and ghastly, yet ultimately detached from any specific feeling or emotion. Tightly applied to the support, Carter’s blending of the foreground with the partly painted background creates a complete visual space in constructing a dense fabric of references out of formal, semantic and historic allusions.

"Missing. Franz marc’s the tower of blue horses contemporary artists in search of a lost masterpiece"

A collaborative project with Haus am Waldsee, Berlin
(3 March through 6 June 2017), with the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Munich

Scarcely any other masterpiece in the modernist tradition has as tumultuous a story as the painting ‘The Tower of Blue Horses’ (1913) by Franz Marc. Its alternating presence in Munich and Berlin made it a link between the two art capitals; repeatedly almost destroyed, saved, and preserved again, it ultimately vanished without a trace after the Second World War.

The question still remains: Where is ‘The Tower of Blue Horses’ today – as a painting, as a memory, as a remote totemic object? – a speculative question now posed by a group of contemporary artists in Berlin and Munich. Their works, created exclusively for this investigative exhibition project, examine the image’s mythology (not least against the background of the surviving Munich study) and trace the unbroken fascination it holds. The artists present their results in two parallel exhibitions in Berlin and Munich that function as an invitation to keep the discourse about the mystery of this iconic painting going.

Participating artists in Berlin: Martin Assig, Norbert Bisky, Birgit Brenner, Johanna Diehl, Marcel van Eeden, Julia Franck, Arturo Herrera, Via Lewandowsky, Rémy Markowitsch, Peter Rösel.

Participating artists in Munich: Viktoria Binschtok, Tatjana Doll, Slawomir Elsner, Jana Gunstheimer, Thomas Kilpper, Dierk Schmidt.

Albrecht Schnider at ETH Zürich

February 24, 2017

The ETH Zürich’s Collection of Prints and Drawings includes some 160,000 fine artworks on paper from the 16th century to the present day. It continues to develop – also in the field of contemporary art, where it acts as a for the latest developments by acquiring contemporary works. The exhibition “Eternal Present” marking its150th anniversary focuses on prints, photographs and drawings which have been produced during the past twenty years and which have been absorbed into the collection. In close collaboration, the head of the Graphische Sammlung ETH Zürich and the head of the Helmhaus Zürich have focused intensively on this part of the collection. Their selection includes works by Albrecht Schnider and by almost 40 more artists; some of them have already achieved recognition while others are still at the very beginning of their careers.

Marina Adams’s Recent Paintings and Gouaches

January 28, 2017
banner image

"When I was looking at Marina Adams’s five large paintings in her terrific debut exhibition, Marina Adams: Soft Power, at Salon 94 Bowery (January 13–February 22, 2017), I felt that she shared something with the superb colorist, the Russian-born Serge Poliakoff (1908–1969), who, while he remains little known in America, gained a number of ardent fans who saw his work in Paris, where he lived and worked for many years,   Shirley Jaffe, Brice Marden, and Jonathan Lasker, among them. The eye-opening survey exhibition, Serge Poliakoff, at Cheim & Read (March 31–April 30, 2016), thoughtfully curated by the artist and critic Joe Fyfe, was his first large show in America in thirty years. That exhibition introduced us to a postwar artist working in Europe in the 1950s and ‘60s who had fallen from grace and was not looked at seriously for many years, either in Europe or America." Article by John Yau on hyperallergic.

Marina Adams at Salon 94

From January 13, 2017 to February 22, 2017
banner image

Marina Adams marks her debut exhibition at Salon 94 Bowery with a striking burst of color. Soft Power includes five large-scale paintings that display the artist’s deft use of palette. Fluently pushing color into form, Adams creates undulating, interlocking shapes that reveal a powerful internal rhythm beneath their surface simplicity. As the artist puts it, "Meaning and intellect in abstract art can be difficult to locate, as there is no narrative to lead us into it. It is like the voice itself. I use pattern and color to create the voice. And I use structure and form to channel it."

Sculpture Project

September 07, 2016

The Skulpturenprojekt for Viertel Zwei was conceived from an original idea by the gallery owner Gabriele Senn and the real estate developer Michael Griesmayr: an outdoor gallery for art objects, accessible to the public.

The Skulpturenprojekt is a signature project for a contemporary development of the Kunst-am-Bau idea – Percent for Art. The public gallery provides a tactile and immediate experience of the visual arts for all who live and work here and simultaneously networks industry and art on one site, which is of interest to both.

John Miller – Paintings from the early 80’s to the present

September 07, 2016
banner image

John Miller belongs to a generation of US artists who, at the beginning of the 1980s, broke loose from Minimal Art and Conceptual Art and to go its own way. At this time, the “Pictures Theory” emerged, exemplified by the work Richard Prince, Cindy Sherman, Allan McCollum and Sherrie Levine – among others. Miller was more closely aligned with a later group of Los Angeles artists who he studied with at CalArts: Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw, Tony Oursler and Christopher Williams. He went on to develop a formal language all of his own, while concerned with the media and consumerism, also calls into question the role of the artist vis-à-vis specific societal and economic conditions. Although his work spans a range of media – video, painting, photography, collage and sculpture –painting from the very outset holds a fundamental significance in his oeuvre and functions as a recurring element.

"New Strength from an Old Root", Tim Berresheim's first solo show in the United State since his 2010 show at Marc Jancou Contemporary, open August 26th at Meliksetian | Briggs. Figures, created by Andi Thissen, "typify central aspects of Berresheim’s aesthetic concept (such as ambiguity, coherence or additive knowledge)" and have been made available as prints. Berresheim's mostly abstract works alludes to his previous ouevre and the thread between the panelled picture plane of fine arts and picture plane of the computer.

The show opens Friday, August 26th at 7 pm in West Hollywood.  Please visit Tim Berresheim's website here for further description of the exhibition.

Dorota Jurczak at Culturgest

July 06, 2016
banner image

The Culturgest Foundation of Lisbon, Portugal is now showing work by artist Dorota Jurczak. The enigmatically titled ~.{ }.~  features engravings, sculpture and painting from the past decade. Jurczak's work is rooted in the folk tradition, with delicate figuration that captures the warmth of mythology, and an undercurrent of the mysterious and macabre found in the likes of puppet shows and gothic fairytales.  As Ana Teixero Pinto wrote in a review of a previous Jurczak show, "folk tales also often revolve around an interdiction (“don’t go there”/ “don’t open that door”), which is always meant to be broken," and Poland-born Dorota Jurczak breaks through categorization, genre, and the coldness of Eastern Bloc modernism which her work subtly pushes againt.
 

~.{ }.~ opened at Culturgest on July 1st. It is running July 2 - October 2, 2016. Click here for more information.

Cindy Sherman at The Broad

June 27, 2016
banner image

The largest retrospective of Cindy Sherman’s work to be held in Los Angeles in over 20 years is currently on display at the Broad. The Broad has curated a series of large and small scale works that survey the artists career. It has combined works from its own extensive collection of Sherman as well as  key loans from other institutions. The work of Sherman has a particular resonance for Eli and Edye Broad, the founders of the institution, who began collecting Sherman’s work over thirty years ago. Since then they have amassed the largest collection of Sherman’s work in the world. As an artist, Sherman is known for her images that see her become the self directed model. She constructs an identity that shifts from one image to the next. She questions notions of persona, environment and media, as well as critically examining questions of authenticity and identity, and most importantly the notion of representation and the deceptive role of the image in contemporary culture. She presents a critic of the mediated personalities that we engage with in modern life. In 1997 Marc Jancou presented an exhibition of Sherman's work in an exhibition entitled: History Painting in London. In this body of work Sherman reappopriates the historic image using the modern medium of photography. The exhibition entitled: Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life, runs until October 2nd, 2016.

Creed’s anti spectacle at the Park Avenue Armory

June 24, 2016
banner image

Winner of the 2001 Turner Price, the British artist Martin Creed presents his largest installation in the U.S to date curated by Tom Eccles and Hans-Ulrich Obrist. « The Black Door » is a survey of his work from its most minimal moments to extravagant, larger-than-life installations. Creed reimagined the space with opening and closing doors and has seized upon the building’s eastern aperture as a visual palette cleanser. This kind of anti-spectacle reunites materials and situations that, when grouped together, create a playful spectacle within a framework that provides the viewer with a fascinating way to counter our visually overloaded, choice-saturated culture.

Base / Progetti per l'Arte, located in Florence, presents Necropolis, a new project by Ken Lum. Born from chance, when the artist happened upon a front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer printed in the aftermath of the Lincoln assassination, the work features cascading text inspired by the newspaper's summary of the president's life. Through variation in font, style, and spacing, Ken Lum creates a dynamic textual representation of the individual, and the series continues Lum's long fascination with  subjective written imaginary.

The opening of Necropolis took place Friday, June 10th 2016 at 6:30 pm, and the exhibition will run June 10th until September 10th.

Steven Claydon: Shortlisted for the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture 2016

April 28, 2016
banner image

Steven Claydon is shortlisted for the Hepworth Prize for Sculpture 2016. Other finalists include Phyllida Barlow, Helen Marten, and David Madalla.

Steven Claydon said: “I’m very pleased to have been shortlisted for this award. Although multifaceted, my work derives primarily from interaction with the world of objects: they are the conduits, the vehicles that provide access to the intangible realms of the emotional, digital, poetic and theoretical. In that way, sculpture always endures. It is legitimised by the cultural context and the physical realities of the epoch in which it is formed. The background noise of subliminal qualities is ultimately encoded within it. This award is a validation of these imperatives, and of the part played by artists in Britain who contribute toward this medium.”

The finalists will present their work in an exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield from 21 October 2016 until 22 January 2017. Visitors to the exhibition will be encouraged to ‘judge’ the Prize for themselves. The winner of the first Hepworth Prize for Sculpture will be announced at an awards dinner in November.

John Miller & Richard Hoeck: Mannequin Death Viewings

March 30, 2016

We are pleased to annouce dual viewings of John Miller & Richard Hoeck's film: Mannequin Death.
Metro Pictures is viewing at 83 Pitt Street, New York, April 2 - April 10, 2016
Marc Jancou Contemporary is viewing in Geneva, presently through May 3, 2016

John Miller on the making of the film: "Mannequin Death resulted from a proposal for a public work in the Südtiroler Siedlung in Innsbruck. We wanted to register, in some way, both historical immigration within Austria from the Südtirol into Innsbruck and the Tyrolean Alps as a sublime landscape. We considered the paintings of the German romantic painter, Caspar David Friedrich, in which the representation of observers seems to be as important as the grandiose scenery that surrounds them. Because these figures (often silhouettes) are clearly stand-ins for the viewer, they constitute a kind of empty – or variable – subject position. With this in mind, we decided to put together a set of three familial figures (mother, father and daughter) and to shoot panoramic photographs of them in the Alps.

We called this constellation “Mannequin Pioneers”. Last spring Richard took the mannequin family into the mountains along with wildlife photographer Patrick Centurioni. Richard’s partner, Kasha Fiedler, styled them. Because the paths were still icy, it was a precarious shoot. Everyone had to be cautious. Otherwise a mannequin – or even a person – might slip over the edge of a steep cliff. Even so, it seemed that this very threat of annihilation is just what distinguishes the sublime from the “merely beautiful”. To further draw out this potential, we decided to assemble a group of ten mannequins and film them falling from the edge of an Alpine cliff to their destruction. In addition we will photograph their remains and display them as a kind of evidence."

Jay Kvapil: Galerie Lefebvre & Fils

March 22, 2016

Jay Kvapil's vessels are on view at Lefebvre & Fils, Paris with the exhibition Jay Kvapil: Luna. Kvapil is a master of the form whereby he unites color and form for dramatic effect.

His sculptures are objects of great rigor and precision borne of tradition and experimentation. Forms take shape by use of "crater glazing", a technique developed by groundbreaking Viennese potters Gertrud and Otto Natzler and exemplified to perfection by Kvapil. Many artists today continue to be inspired by this technique, including Tony Marsh and Sterling Ruby. Kvapil couples his bold glazing with delicate modelling techniques he learned from his apprenticeship with Takatori Seizan Pottery (Japan, 1974-5). 

An artist booklet accompanies the exhibition, Jay Kvapil: Luna (Herman Hülsenberg Studio, 2016). Essay by Christopher Miles.

Press: Frieze Highlights - Dessins

December 15, 2015
banner image

Frieze Blog's Charlie Fox HIGHLIGHTS of 2015 features Dessins: Heidi Bucher, Otto Meyer-Amden and Andy Warhol (now on view at Marc Jancou Contemporary, Geneva).


Fox writes, "The little-known Swiss artist Meyer-Amden (1885–1933) was my discovery of the year and an artist who deserves mammoth posthumous tribute."

and "Galerie Marc Jancou created an eccentric ménage a trois by coupling early Warhol and Heidi Bucher drawings with illustrations by turn-of-the-century oddity Otto Meyer-Amden. The show in part provided the best account of ‘boyishness’ as a charmed and wicked condition since Larry Clark’s masterwork of grunge-teen ogling, The Perfect Childhood (1993)."

December 15, 2015

Frieze Blog's Charlie Fox HIGHLIGHTS of 2015 features Steven Claydon: Analogues, Methods, Monsters, Machines. Now on view at Centre D'Art Contemporain Geneve.

Fox writes, "A knock-out show sprawling over three floors, it was also a high-spirited wrestle with Homer’s Illiad (c. 760-710BCE), the zero-gravity scene from Tarkovsky’s Solaris (1972) and other mythic debris. When it comes to messing with the archeological strata of history, fiction and metaphor compressed within pretty much any material – pixels, Brueghel, the torso of Patroclus, Swiss bullion – Claydon just rules."

Dorota Jurczak's "Bzzz": Galeria Piktogram, Warsaw

November 24, 2015

Dorota Jurczak's "BZZZ" on view at Galeria Piktogram, Warsaw from September 25 – December 12, 2015.
 

Ana Teixeira Pinto of Art Agenda writes, "Polish-born artist Dorota Jurczak’s characters seem to belong to a gentler world, which, somewhat paradoxically, is also more somber than ours....Jurczak’s figures are secretive and inscrutable, frail yet haunting––perhaps signaling that misfortune always hovers invisibly over everyone’s heads?––with delicate frames, which draws them close to the tradition of (mostly Czech) illustration, animation, and puppet theatre, which at present feels oddly distant from the contemporary art context"

OFFSITE Rossinière is a collaboration between Marc Jancou and Partnership At Work, an association of local businesses and the Pays-d'Enhaut Tourism Office.  Through the presentation of art projects, all free and open to the public, OFFSITE and its affiliates seek to make contemporary art accessible and part of daily life, beyond the conventional urban, "white cube" setting.  OFFSITE Rossinière aims to establish a context and dialogue for contemporary art in the Pays-d'Enhaut region, making Rossinière a world class art destination.  As home to the late Balthus, one of the most respected figurative painters of the 20th century, Rossinière provides a particularly inspiring setting for contemporary art projects.  The Balthus Chapel sits within walking distance from OFFSITE’s ad hoc spaces, functioning as a third, complimentary exhibition site.

 

OFFSITE’s exhibition venues have been generously donated by Restaurant Les Jardins de la Tour.  Special thanks are given to Barbara Schoepfer, Patrick Gazeau, Jean-Pierre Neff, Frédéric Delachaux, Stephanie Sutton, Eric Henchoz, Helene Tille, Amy Gadola, and Amara Craighill.
