    ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE / LACMA

    Solo Exhibition
    20 March to 31 July 2016

    Robert Mapplethorpe’s practice as an artist was characterized by inherent dualities. He sought what he called “perfection in form” in everything from acts of sexual fetishism to the elegant contours of flower petals. Robert Mapplethorpe: The Perfect Medium explores Mapplethorpe's body of work through early drawings, collages, sculptures, and Polaroid photography; materials from his archive; portraits, still lifes, and figure studies; rare color photographs; and two seldom-seen moving image works. The exhibition also highlights the artist’s relationship to New York's sexual and artistic undergrounds, as well as his experimentation with a variety of media.

The experimental way in which these artists presented images as products of an era characterised by political events of great relevance became a phenomenon and a reference to future photographers inside and out of Japan.

    Julian Irlinger’s exhibition Fragments of a Crisis sheds light on social and cultural aspects of found pictures and objects. His source material are the emergency banknotes issued in Germany during the period of inflation between 1918 and 1923 as a parallel currency to the Reichsbank mark. Many of these paper banknotes depict politically charged motifs and were designed by regional artists. Employing selected details, Irlinger focuses on the pictorial strategies behind these historical bills. Thus, the artist undertakes a reassessment and explores the relationship between ideology and aesthetic within the context of his artistic production.

For this second iteration Müller has chosen the title The Art(ist) is Present / DER TOD DES AUTORS WIRD NICHT ZUGELASSEN. Similar to the first version of the exhibition cycle, this second exhibition remains strangely empty. Attached to the walls are small title plates. Artist name, title, year, dimensions, materials, etc. are listed soberly and in many cases are supplemented with a number given to the work in the accompanying audio guide. The audio guide is the center piece of this reduced presentation. Why? Because the works it references are missing. Instead, the imagination of the visitors is required, the exhibition is created in the mind of the beholder.

Exploring the modular architecture of social housing projects, the artist highlights forms of individual creative adaptation that defy the uniformity and functionality of the spaces. Such dissent with normative parameters is especially interesting to Willats because it is where individuality reveals itself and self-determination is articulated. The exhibition is accompanied by a monograph with essays by Bronac Ferran, John Kelsey, Andrew Wilson, and Heike Munder.

The large-format black-and-white photograph shows a self-portrait of the artist threatened by knives. The exhibition highlights the polarizing discussions that inspired Sieverding's work in the early 1990s. The question of the cultural and spiritual identity and breadth of the German nation is more relevant than ever in the face of political developments. With regard to the current migration and refugee policies, Sieverding's work has not lost its potency.

Since then, each year the Cultural Department of the City of Pulheim invites an artist to produce a work that proposes a close interrelationship with the space.

Using selected works from the collection Müller experiments with the conditions and possibilities of exhibiting, questioning how the space and the environment influence the works. Is there a "law of good neighbourliness" (Warburg) or are all works "the mortal enemy" of all others (Adorno)? The Conditions of Being Art (oder der Amateur) thus challenges the viewer to consider the complex and fascinating interrelationship between work, artist, curator, and audience.

    FABIAN MARCACCIO / SCI-Arc Gallery, Los Angeles

    Solo Exhibition
    18 October to 1 December 2019

    SCI-Arc hosts an exhibition by Fabian Marcaccio, entitled Paintants Lab. Marcaccio is involved in a pictorial reengineering of painting with the use of 3D printing, which he defines as hyperstructural painting or techno-brutalism. His lab is constantly evolving and serves as the core of the artist's research. Marcaccio considers its force to be “in the innumerable branches of evolution and mutation through material, technique, space, and time.”

    HAMISH FULTON / Galerie Stadtpark, Krems

    Solo exhibitioin
    14 December 2019 to 20 March 2020

    Galerie Stadtpark acts as an exhibition platform for the presentation, contextualization and mediation of contemporary positions in the field of visual art. The programmatic focus of Galerie Stadtpark is on thematic group exhibitions and individual artistic positions that are not understood as singular aesthetic practices, but rather as artistic positions in specific contexts and discourses. The most important part of Hamish Fulton's art is walking, mostly over long distances for days or weeks. Born in 1946 and working as a freelance artist since 1967, he has already walked about 55,000 kilometers, first in Great Britain, and later on all five continents.

    ALBRECHT SCHNIDER / Was bleibt – What remains

    German Cinema Release
    16 January 2020

    The film addresses the core issues of the artistic work process. Continuous painting, contemplation and destruction are the core elements in the creative process of the Swiss painter Albrecht Schnider: "Repetition and coincidence are the two magic words. Repetition in order to feel myself. In order to somehow see the light now and then, that's what chance is for." Filmmaker Rita Ziegler has successfully captured Schnider's fascinating process in intimate studio shots.

    5 September to 8 November 2020

    Creative Folkestone has announced details of the artists participating in the fifth Folkestone Triennial, The Plot. 20 artists have been commissioned to create new artworks to be exhibited across Folkestone for one of the UK’s most ambitious art exhibitions.
    Richard Deacon’s Benchmark nos 1-5 is a result of the artist's preoccupation with plinths and the crucial role they have played in the development of sculpture. In researching his contribution to the Triennial, Deacon discovered five existing platforms in the scenic Kingsnorth Gardens. The welcome of these empty platforms inspired him to create five new sculptures in granite.

    Solo Exhibition
    26 March to 22 November 2020

    ICA Miami presents the first US museum retrospective for Allan McCollum. Since the late 1960s, McCollum has created works that examine the art object’s relationship to uniqueness, context, and value, as well as to the museum that collects, values, and preserves it. This exhibition surveys McCollum’s output over more than five decades, and makes inquiries into the artist’s series of “regional projects” created since the 1990s. In his work McCollum has used the idea of the collection to explore how we remember, care for, and privilege various material artifacts.

    The fourth version of Michael Müller's exhibition series "DEINE KUNST" is entitled "Informel, das / Stil, der - Das Schweigen der Bilder als stupide Zumutung oder Die Sprachlosigkeit". The first part of the title relates to a formal reference: the art-historical classification of styles and art directions by means of definitions in the lexicon. Informal art represents an important direction in the visual arts after 1945 and is a focal point in the collection of the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg.

    Solo exhibition
    11 June to 25 July 2020

    Julian Irlinger's exhibition Gift examines the writing of history through materials that document differing transfers of ownership and property infractions in the era of the GDR and after and how these contribute to the construction of national identity. Following the presentation at GalerieWedding, Irlinger will hand over the source material to the collection of the Wende Museum in Los Angeles, who in turn will make it available as a historical artifact for exhibition and research purposes. The materials will be the first documents of their kind to enter the collection. Their presence will expand the possibility of research on ideological and economic aspects of German unification outside of Germany, thus challenging the unifying authority of national identity and historical narrative.

    GORDON MATTA-CLARK / KØS Museum of art in public spaces

    Solo exhibition
    20 March to 20 September 2020

    The exhibition at highlights the social and political dialogue inherent in Gordon Matta-Clark's public interventions—from his concern for the extreme plight of the homeless, and the interest in direct community engagement, to his mystic vision of urban space as incorporating the underground, the sky and other inaccessible spaces, as well as his awareness of the rampant development and socioeconomic stratification. The exhibition elucidates Matta-Clark’s evolution through rarely seen archival materials, examining amongst other things his unrealized proposals for public art projects and his thinking about Anarchitecture—a term and concept through which he expressed his own ideas about built space.

    LEUNORA SALIHU / Philara Foundation

    Solo exhibition
    28 August to 25 October 2020

    Leunora Salihu's objects are continuations of familiar forms, that can emerge from proportions of the human body as well as architectural archetypes of human dwelling. Following these archetypal models, she draws on original, earth-based materials such as ceramics, wood or metal, which can simultaneously be informed by an industrial context. Experiences she creates with characteristic specificities of a substance are transferred to the next material—thus the engagement with clay, a soft material that goes through many processes, can lead to a search for the softness and mobility in wood, initially appearing rigid. Further, the sculptures stand in constant tension with physical contrasts such as lightness and heaviness, attraction and expansion, which Salihu concurrently potentiates and balances.
