ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Hanna Hartman, Cecilia Jonsson, Edith Kollath, Chelsea Leventhal, Tamaki Watanabe & Walter Zurborg - Galerie Mario Mazzoli - September 10th - November 12th <p><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><span>For NEXUS, Galerie Mario Mazzoli has gathered works by 6 international sound artists: Hanna Hartman (SE), Cecilia Jonsson (NO), Edith Kollath (DE), Chelsea Leventhal (US), and Tamaki Watanabe | Walter Zurborg (JP/DE).&nbsp; All employ sound as a means of harmonizing the axes of dialectic present in their works, and illustrate the wide range of object-based SoundArt.</span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;<span style="font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Ever since sound escaped from the confines of music, it has informed a nexus in which artists from different backgrounds and disciplines can explore its time-bound and ephemeral possibilities. Practitioners from painting, kinetic art, the natural sciences, textile design, fashion, literature, theatre, sculpture and electroacoustic music now employ sound as a key element in their hybrid artistic works.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The artists assembled for this exhibition exemplify this diversity, offering pieces that showcase a wide spectrum of skills, ideas and approaches. Explorations that range from pre-recorded compositions, hacked noise, amplified friction and electromagnetic noises to sounds only implied, engage in a dialogue with motion, material, object, and concept.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Verdana, sans-serif;">In all of these very different works &ndash; made of diverse materials, driven by different mechanisms and exploring a variety of conceptual ideas &ndash; sound is critical. Sound in all these works occupies the fulcrum position in multiple convergences of forms, and acts as the knot which ties together a visual and conceptual conversation.&nbsp; This variety exemplifies the nexus quality essential to SoundArt, and throws into stark relief the hybrid network structure endemic to current artistic practice.</span></p> Wed, 31 Aug 2016 14:29:38 +0000 Morgan Ashcom, Josee Schryer, Daniel Reuter, Susan Hayre, Leo Goddard - exp12 / exposure twelve - September 11th - October 8th <p align="LEFT"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: 'DejaVu Sans Condensed', sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: large;"><em><strong>The (Im)Personal Landscape</strong></em></span></span></span></p> <p align="LEFT"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: 'DejaVu Sans Condensed', sans-serif;"><span><em><strong>Morgan Ashcom, Josee Schryer, Daniel Reuter, </strong></em></span></span></span><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: 'DejaVu Sans Condensed', sans-serif;"><span><em><strong>Susan Hayre, Leo Goddard</strong></em></span></span></span></p> <p>In the summer of 2016, the International Limited-Residency Photography MFA Program at Hartford Art School / University of Hartford (USA) is going to graduate its fifth cohort. To celebrate this landmark achievement, a series of exhibitions with graduate work is going to be organized in multiple locations across the globe. The first one is going to be held in Berlin, Germany at exp12 gallery. The second exhibition, scheduled for S&atilde;o Paulo, Brazil, is in preparation.</p> <p>Each exhibition is going to center on a larger theme, the Berlin one being <em>The (Im)Personal Landscape</em>. The natural world has long served as either inspiration or a theme for artists. For example, in painting, landscapes served as backdrops for large battles, or they reminded humans, represented through small buildings or figures, of the grandeur and power of the larger world they had to face. In photography, similar themes have been explored throughout the medium's history.</p> <p>The artists represented in this exhibition each take landscapes as their staging grounds, delving deeply into their own biographies, whether in a deeply personal manner or working with larger societal themes. Ostensibly a collection of landscape photographs, <em>The (Im)Personal Landscape </em>speaks of the struggles human beings have faced in this world, struggles seen through the eyes of five graduates. They are: Morgan Ashcom (USA), Leo Goddard (GB), Susan Hayre<sup><a class="sdfootnoteanc" name="sdfootnote1anc" href="#sdfootnote1sym" rel="nofollow"><sup>*</sup></a></sup> (USA), Daniel Reuter (D/ISL), Josee Schryer (CAN).</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'DejaVu Sans Condensed', sans-serif;">Given the Photography MFA Program has a very strong photobook component &ndash; at the time of the exhibition three of the photographers will have published their books, the exhibition will also feature a book component. Being able to see actual books will allow visitors to experience work done by graduates through this particular medium.</span></p> <p><span style="color: #0000ff;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: 'DejaVu Sans Condensed', sans-serif;"><strong>www.</strong></span></span></span></span><span style="color: #0000ff;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif;"><em><strong></strong></em></span></span></span></span></p> <p><a class="sdfootnotesym" name="sdfootnote1sym" href="#sdfootnote1anc" rel="nofollow">&nbsp;</a></p> Tue, 30 Aug 2016 17:05:06 +0000 Marcus Weber - Laura Mars Gallery - September 9th - September 30th Tue, 30 Aug 2016 07:28:36 +0000 Peter Böhnisch - CFA Charlottenburg - September 1st - October 1st Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:50:23 +0000
