Gods, Myths and Mortals: Greek Treasures Across the Millennia from the Benaki Museum
MELBOURNE  •  Hellenic Museum of Melbourne  •  10 September 2014 - 10 October 2019
 

The exhibition: Gods, Myths and Mortals: Greek Treasures Across the Millennia from the Benaki Museum, offers a manageable, yet complete, picture of the span of Greek civilisation. 

It highlights the unbroken continuation and unity of Hellenism, from earliest prehistory to the Classical and Hellenistic years, from the Roman era to the end of the Byzantine period, and from the centuries of foreign rule up to the revolutionary revival of 1821, and the founding of the Modern Greek state. The captivating progression of Greek art, and the twists and turns of Greece’s history are narrated by representative objects from almost eight millennia, coming as much from Greece itself as from lands where Greek culture took hold. At this crossroads between Europe, Africa and Asia, man – despite long periods of unrest and insecurity – managed to maintain the essential components of his civilisation: an anthropocentric view of the world, lively and inspirational thinking and the fruitful assimilation of as many influences as were accepted from its conquerors over time. 

In the exhibition of the Benaki Museum, aspects of everyday life and different sides of religious expression are presented together with documents about the social and political organisation, in order to record the narrative that can be read within the development of Greek civilisation.

Anthea Hamilton: The New Life
VIENNA  •  Secession  •  14 September - 4 November 2018
 
 
Anthea Hamilton’s interdisciplinary interest in performance is evident in her sculptural assemblages and installations whose tableau-like quality makes them reminiscent of stage sceneries or film sets, and which she has referred to as ‘performative spaces’. Her sculptures, idiosyncratic constructions precariously balanced between emergence and collapse, function like props for stories that remain to be told. Hamilton’s work is rooted in wide-ranging research, on the one hand, whether she explores strands in cultural history such as the roots of 1970s disco, art-historical references like Art Nouveau, radical Italian design or Japanese kabuki theatre, documentary photography or lichen.

CALLOT: Graphic Monuments
MANNHEIM  •  Kunsthalle Mannheim  •  14 September - 25 November 2018
 

He is a master of the art of etching: Jacques Callot (Nancy 1592–1635) is considered to be one of the most important late Mannerist copper engravers of the early 17th century. He worked for Cosimo di Medici in Florence and later for the courts in Lorraine and Paris, the Netherlands and Spain. That he achieved international fame – as an artist without any paintings, but exclusively as a result of his etchings – is quite remarkable.

Callot loved theatrical grotesques and elegant court scenes, while setting new standards with his war scenes from the Thirty Years’ War. His works thrive on his inexhaustible attention to detail which the etcher has lent a captivating presence, and – despite their small size – monumentality. In order to achieve this level of precision in his pictures Callot invented new etching techniques as well as employing stage-by-stage acid treatment processes for the first time to generate previously unseen spatial atmospheric effects.

Thematically, Jacques Callot also stroke a new path. With his “Capriccios“, or “Caprices”, he created a new genre which, in a playful manner, broke with iconographic rules, enabling an unchained expression of imaginative ideas.

Jacques Callot became famous for his partly literal, partly dramatic depictions of “The Miseries and Misfortunes of War” which represent one of the first series of works addressing this theme. This form was later taken up by numerous artists. The most famous works include Goya’s “The Disasters of War” and the series “The War” by Otto Dix. Instead of celebrating the victories of the rulers, Callot’s pictures depict the possible misconduct of the soldiers and describe the resulting punishments.

Both, his large format siege pictures as well as his topographically accurate landscapes reveal that the artist was less interested in politically important scenes or prominent buildings rather than the harsh as well as cheerful people’s everyday life.

His oeuvre encompasses 1,428 sheets, of which over one third, consisting of over 500 etchings, is part of the Mannheim art collection.

Prototypology: An Index of Process and Mutation
ROME  •  Gagosian Gallery Rome  •  14 January - 2 April 2016
 
 

Prototypology explores research and development in the work of thirty contemporary artists, tracing the evolution from idea to finished artwork through drawings, archives, maquettes, and bricolage. In doing so the exhibition establishes a typology of diverse drafts.

The studio is a liminal zone for sourcing, modifying, and testing. Derived from the Italian word schizzare (splash), a "sketch" represents the initial impulse from mind to hand, the developmental process whereby form begins to emerge. In the laboratory of the studio, bricolage is often used as an instinctual method in the construction of prototypes.

The exhibition includes new works and archival material from Michael Heizer, Takashi Murakami, Albert Oehlen, and Robert Therrien, among other artists. Studies for sculptures by Dan Graham, Claes Oldenburg, Tatiana Trouvé, and Rachel Whiteread reveal moments of process that lead to epiphanies. Monumental, civic, everyday, and otherworldly gestures are visible in a range of preparatory drawings and proposals.

Artists: Vladimir Arkhipov, Richard Artschwager, Nina Beier, Will Boone, Mike Bouchet, Chris Burden, Jason Dodge, Aleksandra Domanović, Dan Graham, Loris Gréaud, Michael Heizer, Carsten Höller, Thomas Houseago, Allan McCollum, Takashi Murakami, Albert Oehlen, Claes Oldenburg, Steven Parrino, Giuseppe Penone, Kirsten Pieroth, Ry Rocklen, Nancy Rubins, Arcangelo Sassolino, David Smith, Rudolf Stingel, Robert Therrien, Mungo Thomson, Tatiana Trouvé, Cy Twombly, Rachel Whiteread

The Music of Color: Sam Gilliam, 1967-1973
BASEL  •  Kunstmuseum Basel  •  9 June - 30 September 2018
 

Sam Gilliam (b. Tupelo, Mississippi, 1933) is one of America’s most prominent abstract painters. Works by the artist, who has lived and worked in Washington, D.C., since 1962, are held by numerous museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, the MoMA (New York), the National Gallery of Art, and the Whitney Museum of Art. The Music of Color is his first solo exhibition in Europe. The show puts the focus on the years between 1967 and 1973, the period of the greatest radicalism in Gilliam’s oeuvre. His Yves Klein Blue, which harks back to his experimental early work, was presented at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017.

In 1967, Gilliam began work on a series of what came to be known as beveled-edge paintings: he poured acrylic paint directly onto the unprimed canvas, which he folded and crumpled while the paint was still wet. He then stretched the canvas over a chamfered frame, lending the painting a spatial and object-like quality. Gilliam’s signature creative achievement is the drape paintings series, begun in 1968, for which he applied the same procedure as in the beveled-edge paintings but then released the canvas from the stretcher frame. Unlike easel paintings, which usually function independently of their context, the drape paintings evince a performative aspect and interact with their respective settings; they can be installed in a variety of ways depending on the spatial context.

Gilliam strove to blur the widely accepted boundary between painting and sculpture even as prominent contemporaries such as Donald Judd sought to reaffirm it. The paintings he created between 1967 and 1973 stand out for their monumentality and forceful use of color. The canvas becomes a medium that records traces of the production process and exhibits its own physicality. At a time when painting seemed to be in decline, Gilliam breathed new life into it; jazz was an important source of inspiration for his expressive and energetic style.

The Music of Color also probes the political and historical dimension of Gilliam’s oeuvre. While the artist himself rarely comments on political issues, the works in his Martin Luther King series and Jail Jungle reflect the 1968 race riots and the highly polarized debate over black art and abstract painting in 1960s and 1970s America.

The Kunstmuseum Basel presents 45 outstanding works from public and private collections in Europe and the United States.

Theaster Gates: Black Madonna
BASEL  •  Kunstmuseum Basel  •  9 June - 21 October 2018
 

The creative practice of the American artist Theaster Gates (b. 1973) ranges from urban interventions and performance pieces to pottery. He is the lead singer of the band The Black Monks of Mississippi and has been appointed the first distinguished visiting artist and director of artist initiatives at the Lunder Institute for American Art, which is part of the Colby College Museum of Art. An urban planner by training, he rose to renown with Dorchester Projects, an urban redevelopment endeavor on Chicago’s impoverished South Side that he has described as «real estate art». His work continually aims to bridge the gulf between art and society and establish cultural communities as a way of initiating social, political, architectural, and urban change. At the 2013 Art Basel, he presented 100 marble slabs from the bathrooms of a bank building slated for demolition that he had inscribed with the words «In Art We Trust»; transformed into bank bonds, they helped raise funding for the Stony Island Arts Bank cultural center. Since then Gates has widely been recognized as a leading voice in contemporary art.

The artist sees himself as a collector of collections and archives, especially of America’s black culture. He is especially interested in forgotten objects, images, and themes, which he integrates into his own creative practice. As a collector of marginalized and obscure archives, Gates will join the Kunstmuseum Basel in a critical engagement with the museum’s Eurocentric collection that will broach fundamental questions concerning its spatial and organizational structures.

In his exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Basel, which will be spread out across two of the museum’s venues, Gates will explore the cult of the Black Madonna, examining both its significance in the history of religion and its aesthetic and metaphorical tenor.

Glenn Ligon: What We Said The Last Time
NEW YORK  •  Luhring Augustine  •  27 February - 2 April 2016
 

Luhring Augustine presents What We Said The Last Time, an exhibition of new work by Glenn Ligon, and Entanglements, a curatorial project by the artist. A companion exhibition entitled We Need To Wake Up Cause That’s What Time It Is opened at Luhring Augustine Bushwick on January 16th and remains on view through 17 April 2016. 

What We Said The Last Time features a suite of seventeen inkjet prints that document the paint-spattered pages of the artist’s well-worn copy of James Baldwin’s seminal 1953 essay “Stranger in the Village.” Written during a stay in a remote Swiss mountain hamlet, Baldwin’s text examines complex and urgent questions around blackness, culture, and history. Since 1996, Ligon has used the essay as the basis of his “Stranger” series, including prints, drawings, and dense paintings made with oil stick and often coal dust that oscillate between legibility and obscurity. While creating these canvases, Ligon kept pages of Baldwin’s essay on his studio table for reference, and over the years they became covered with random smudges of black paint, oil stains, and fingerprints. Intrigued by this accumulation of marks, Ligon transformed the book pages into a suite of large-scale prints, using the full text of the essay for the first time in his career. The resulting work is a palimpsest of accumulated personal histories that suggests Ligon’s long engagement with Baldwin’s essay, as well as a new strategy in his ongoing exploration of the interplay between language and abstraction.

Also on view is Entanglements, a curatorial project by Ligon that examines how artists use the studio as a base from which to engage momentous cultural shifts and political events in both direct and oblique ways.  Key to the exhibition is Bruce Nauman’s Violin Tuned D.E.A.D. (1968), a video that presents the artist repetitively playing a single note on a violin with his back to the camera. While discussions of Nauman’s video works from this period have focused on issues of performativity, endurance, and the body, Ligon was interested in how Nauman’s discordant note can be heard as a soundtrack to the war in Vietnam or the brutal violence faced by civil rights workers. While not directly commenting on these issues, the ominous soundscape of Violin Tuned D.E.A.D. nevertheless suggests Nauman’s engagement with that turbulent moment in American history and served as a point of departure for Ligon to consider other works in which the artist’s studio has acted as a conduit for contemporary events. Ligon’s selections posit new identities, conversations or modes of sociability as a response to pressing social and political issues.  Entanglements features artworks and ephemera by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, David Hammons, On Kawara, Glenn Ligon, Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, Bob Thompson, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, and Andy Warhol. 

Glenn Ligon lives and works in New York.

Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI  •  Pulitzer Arts Foundation  •  14 September 2018 - 16 February 2019
 
The Pulitzer Arts Foundation explores the career of pioneering Mexican photographer Lola Álvarez Bravo (1903 – 1993) with an exhibition of images that she considered to be her personal photography. Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico presents nearly 50 photographs and photomontages spanning Álvarez Bravo’s fivedecade career. Together, these illuminate the ways in which her modernist aesthetic, with meticulous attention to pattern, light, and composition, contributed to her depictions of Mexico’s diverse inhabitants and landscapes as she traveled the country documenting life in the years following the Mexican Revolution (ca. 1910– 1920).

Pope. L.: One thing after another (part two)
NEW YORK  •  Mitchell-Innes & Nash  •  13 September - 27 October 2018
 

Mitchell-Innes & Nash announces One thing after another (part two), a solo exhibition of new and retro work by Pope.L. This is the artist’s fifth solo exhibition with the gallery and the first in New York since he was awarded the Bucksbaum Award from the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2017. One thing after another (part two) elliptically follows Pope.L’s similarly titled exhibition at La Panacée in Montepellier— the artist’s first major solo museum show in France.

Pope.L’s practice often focuses on the uncertain but productive space between differences in language, class, race, and gender to create works that simultaneously enlist, mock and re-write convention. For Pope.L this gap is where ignorance interacts with hubris to create fresh tensions around authenticity, self and icon. The works on view in One thing after another (part two) are, as the artist notes, “a disgustingly neat pile of doubt, experiment, and denial shoved up hot against claim, leap, gambit, and caesura---your basic scrabbling about in the dark…”

The exhibition features a dozen large Re-Photo collages, in which the artist has manipulated images of parts, mostly body parts, combining them with fragments from various print media to create “figural encounters” that have been scanned, re-printed and flattened into single large planes of paper. The Re-Photos originated out of Pope.L’s desire to betray the artist’s hand while simultaneously creating images highly suggestive of the body. The works display a hopped-up mechanical puppet-like feel yet function as a kind of tired but comic modernist chest-beating cum self-obliteration and dis-recognition. Pope.L says of these pieces: “What's key is the body that can't hold itself together; its wholeness is a cartoon."

The Re-Photo collages are accompanied by a set of wall-mounted acrylic boxes, retro works, filled with bags of fertilizer and paint, each bag plastered with a photocopied image of a smiling Martin Luther King Jr. Titled Rebuilding the Monument, the pieces project a sad, humorous, highly irreverent sense of derogation in their staging of an esteemed historical figure’s image. The works function as anti-monuments, bringing into question representation's take on Martin Luther King Jr., while at the same time putting in relief the artist’s modus of figural obliteration and authenticity.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA  •  Spelman College Museum of Fine Art  •  14 September - 8 December 2018
 

Spelman College Museum of Fine Art is presenting the United States premiere of Zanele Muholi: Somnyama Ngonyama, Hail The Dark Lioness, an internationally touring exhibition organized by Autograph, London and curated by Renée Mussai. In more than 70 photographs, visual activist Zanele Muholi (South African, b. 1972), whose pronouns are they, them, and their, uses their body as a canvas to confront the politics of race and representation in the visual archive. In Somnyama Ngonyama, which translates to Hail The Dark Lioness in isiZulu, one of the official languages of South Africa, Muholi playfully employs the conventions of classical painting, fashion photography, and the familiar tropes of ethnographic imagery to rearticulate contemporary identity politics.

Trail of Tears: A Story of Cherokee Removal
WASHINGTON, DC  •  Smithsonian’s National Museum  •  15 April - 31 December 2018
 

Cherokee Nation recently opened a new exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the annual Cherokee Days festival. “A Story of Cherokee Removal” shares the story of removal on the infamous Trail of Tears from the Cherokee perspective and addresses the devastating costs of greed and oppression. It also shows how the tribe persevered, adapted and learned to thrive. “This new installation shares the unique Cherokee perspective of federal removal policies and focuses on the early history of our tribe in Indian Territory,” said Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker. “It educates viewers about the circumstances surrounding the Trail of Tears and shows how our tribal government rebuilt itself by re-establishing schools and courts in modern-day Oklahoma.

Featured within the exhibit are quotes from witnesses of the Cherokee Trail of Tears, historical timelines, a Trail of Tears route map and a video highlighting the Remember the Removal Bike Ride, in which young Cherokees retrace the 950-mile route on bicycles each year.
