Eduardo Chillida – La gravedad insistente,
TOULOUSE  •  Les Abattoirs  •  6 April - 26 August 2018
 
Bringing together over 60 artworks in various media the exhibition Eduardo Chillida – La gravedad insistente, at Les Abattoirs in Toulouse focuses on the sculptor’s relationship to space and the gravity of materials. Devised with exceptional support from the Fundación Eduardo Chillida-Pilar Belzunce, it highlights how the Spanish artist breathed new life into the art of sculpture from the 1950s into the early 2000s. From the early 1950s, Spanish artist Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) contributed to the renewal of the kind of sculpture that challenged the constraints of materials. He therefore opted at the start of the 50s to create his sculptures directly with fire, in the forge, and refused the traditional duplication of sculpture in bronze.

Associating wrought ironwork with modern sculpture in new and original ways, he plays on the refusal of the pedestal and encompasses the surrounding environment, particularly empty space. He thus contributed to a redefinition of sculpture that was taking place on a global scale. Consistently reflecting on sculpture’s relationship to space, Chillida thus spent nearly 20 years designing the Wind Combs, based on the Atlantic coastline, which he envisaged as a sculpture, an architectural space, and a soundscape subjected to the laws of the sea and wind, and which was finally inaugurated in 1977.

Flesh | Meat
BERLIN  •  Altes Museum  •  1 June - 31 August 2018
 
When we think of flesh and meat, the first thing that comes to mind is usually food. But also our own bodies consist of meat. For thousands of years, meat has played a central role in cultural and ritual contexts as well. In short: meat is food, body, and cult. The transition from the realm of the living to the realm of the dead becomes apparent within it. In the exhibition, the relationship between men and meat as well as meat’s complex cultural connotations are presented while exploring the tensions surrounding the becoming and decay of flesh. The exhibition is interdisciplinary and spans the collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, including archaeological, ethnological, and art-historical objects from 5,000 years of human history.

BERLIN  •  Galerie Guido W. Baudach  •  8 June - 21 July 2018
 
 
Galerie Guido W. Baudach and blank projects present an exhibition of works by South African artists Igshaan Adams, Jared Ginsburg, Bronwyn Katz, Donna Kukama, Turiya Magadlela, Sabelo Mlangeni, Kyle Morland, Cinga Samson, Gerda Scheepers, Lerato Shadi and James Webb. The exhibition arose out of conversations around a gallery swap between Guido Baudach and Jonathan Garnham, who have been friends and colleagues since the ‘90s, which resulted in the invitation to present blank’s programme in Berlin. Curated by Garnham, the exhibition features selected works by represented artists and invited guests, the show offers a vignette of the practices of a group of emerging and established South African artists working today.

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
