Voynich Manuscript. image via Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library We've never done this before. This year we launched our first-ever Curator's Open, where we asked you to use our massive database of art to curate our booth at EXPO Chicago. We then handed over the submissions to an expert jury of curators to decide which show we should put on. They selected Amsterdam-based curator and critic Manus Groenen's show "Cryptographics: a tribute to the Voynich Manuscript." Featurin... [more]

(Image: Chloe Piene, Iron Hand,  2012, Installation view,  Iron, Plaster,  40 x 69 x 170cm; © Galerie Barbara Thumm / Photo: Jens Ziehe) Chloe Piene (b. 1972, Stamford, Connecticut, USA) Chloe Piene is well known for her ability to straddle an extremely wide spectrum, both in the physical play of her materials and as a certain philosophical position.

(Image: Gitte Schäfer, Gabor, 2010, Wood, book cloth, h: 38 x w: 45 x d: 8 cm; © Lullin + Ferrari) Gitte Schäfer (b. 1972, Stuttgart, Germany) History and memory weave a tremulous path through the varied artistic practices of Schäfer, including sculpture, painting, drawing, and design. Working skillfully in these mediums, Schäfer reinterprets several historical sources as far-reaching as German Romanticism, mid-century European industrial design and the Japanese tradition of Ichiban sculptur...

Baudach) Björn Dahlem (b. 1974, Munich, Germany) The artist Björn Dahlem represents the modern type of sculptor.

Profoundly knowledgeable about intellectual and cultural history (including the history of popular culture), Dahlem transposes complex iss... [more]

Frauke Boggasch + Adrian Lohmüller at Cruise & Callas September 23rd, 2009 - November 7th, 2009
Posted 10/22/10

The pictures of Frauke Boggasch, painted in many glazed layers and sombrely romantic appearing, are conceptual and above all a confrontation with classic questions on painting. In the glazes she buries the knowledge of painting’s conditions. Archetypes, confrontations and allusions are hardly or not at all visible anymore. These layers and histories face up against the completed picture, which on the surface display impasto application and appear almost manically worked. Boggasch employs this mania... [more]

Dominik Steiner at Cruise & Callas December 6th, 2008 - January 24th, 2009
Posted 10/22/10

Cruise & Callas are pleased to present the fi rst solo exhibition of Dominik Steiner. In his show “Totipotent”, Steiner is showing abstract painting and sculpture. Dominik Steiner’s work shows a strong relationship to the artist’s self-image since the beginning of classic modern art. Sandro Bocola wrote in his art historical paper “The Art of the Modern” about Kandinsky and his contemporaries: “In their non-objective works the unity of the sensual and the spiritual is neither proclaimed nor d...

Over 20 years after the death of Joseph Beuys, a young generation of artists has set out as the new "fatherless generation," invoking primal elements and energies, the forces of nature and of the irrational.

Michael Stokes at STYX Projects September 8th, 2010 - September 29th, 2010
Posted 9/11/10

Stokes seems to have the creative freedom that may have other artists, serving more commercial or intellectual masters, becoming anxious. It seems like Stokes just makes whatever he feels like, or works with whatever the sea provides, as it were. It's as though a fisherman waits patiently to see what might bite. But surely this reading is too simple. A reading of this body of work involves a certain amount of time, for there are no dry references to art history or to art theory. Stokes also do... [more]
