The exhibition presents posters made in response to cultural processes and current affairs alongside drawings and work diaries revealing thoughts, frames of reference, formulation of images and ideas at work.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: right;">זה ארבעה עשורים אוסף דוד טרטקובר (נ' חיפה, 1944; חתן פרס ישראל, 2002) דימויים וטקסטים מכל פינות התרבות והאקטואליה הישראלית. את חומריו אלה הוא רותם להערות פרשניות, תמונות מציאות פעורות הנגרפות בכל ממדיהן אל קו פרשת המים של 1967. התערוכה המקיפה מתמקדת בכרזות שיצר בתגובה לאירועי אקטואליה ובהתייחס לתהליכים בתרבות המקומית. לצדן מוצגים רישומים ומבחר מתוך "הספרים השחורים" &mdash; יומנים החושפים הלכי רוח וחשיבה, מסגרות התייחסות ותהליכי גיבוש של דימויים ורעיונות ביצירתו משנות השבעים ואילך.</p> Thu, 05 May 2016 18:19:08 +0000 Johann Espiritu - Silverlens Manila - June 4th 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Silverlens is pleased to present <em>Cy Pr&egrave;s</em>, Johann Espiritu's third solo exhibition at Silverlens.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In <em>Cy Pr&egrave;s</em>, Espiritu cracks open his own piggy bank of image memories. This is how his brain works, how it remembers. The loose change of bits here and there fall where they may, but nothing is ever random, where you put things and where you lose things say volumes about how you keep what&rsquo;s precious, where you drop the most important, one by one in tiny coin size slots. Will you ever find what you&rsquo;re looking for? Will it ever find you? Will you ever be brave enough to press the purge button and just restart? No. Never. There was something there. Something your molecules say was important. But what was it?</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Espiritu eliminates reformat as an option, instead he cuts and pastes, super-imposes, tries to make sense. Where he does and as he does, this is just the way his brain works. It has to make sense, all his random bits or remembered. The burden of never forgetting weighs heavy. Each image in his bank was meant for something in the past, and in Cy Pr&egrave;s he brings them to a reconstituted future. Alas! He sees that now they once again begin to make sense. The nagging feeling of loss of never forgetting, but not remembering meaning is gone. Putting together these images has become, in itself, the experience. It has become the real hard-copy, now more precious then the sum of its parts, pressure laminated and lacquered and beautiful.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">No longer to be remembered. It has just become expressed.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> Fri, 27 May 2016 07:46:21 +0000 Eric Zamuco - Silverlens Manila - June 4th 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Stepping into Eric Zamuco&rsquo;s<em> Visible Currents</em> is to experience reconstructed forms, revealing the subtle motions and transformations of an inner life. Airplane windows become part of an assemblage of oars, giving object expressions to the notions of constant motion and changing geographies, the flow of time and memory, recollection and deconstruction of object and memory. These assemblages transcend being mere object through the social and personal meanings ascribed to them, resonating with impermanence and mortality.</p> Fri, 27 May 2016 07:47:08 +0000 Chati Coronel - Silverlens Manila - June 4th 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Silverlens is pleased to present <em>The Way In/ The Way Out</em>, Chati Coronel&rsquo;s latest solo exhibition. &ldquo;I think consciousness is our main currency.&rdquo; When Chati Coronel talks about her art, in terms of both its protocols and its products, it is with equal measures of a scientist&rsquo;s curiosity, an explorer&rsquo;s wanderlust, and an acolyte&rsquo;s beholden sense of awe. She&rsquo;s fascinated with teasing synergies between dichotomies. Flesh and spirit. Mass and space. Poetry and painting. But consciousness, specifically human consciousness, in all its myriad permutations and even broader implications, has always been both her terra incognita, and her terra firma. This is her field, her terrain, her territory. As an artist, as a Buddhist, as a person.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The way Coronel sees it, human consciousness is like the air in our bodies in the way it tends to move through it and in the way it keeps us vital and wakeful when it does. This is the experience she intends not merely to explore but also to induce in her new show, The Way In/ The Way Out, by exploring its connection with color. There are seven colors, one for each painting. It&rsquo;s a constraint that Coronel imposed on herself, and yet there is a ritualistic fervor to the way she uses each color as an energy center, not to mention a rigorous symmetry to the design of the whole, that makes it seem less of an imposition and more of a liberation, less of an obstruction and more a function of process&mdash;a process that for all its deliberate specificity, for all its rigor, remains given over to the temperaments of the experience she&rsquo;s trying to activate.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> Fri, 27 May 2016 07:46:27 +0000 - Alaska State Museum - June 6th 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM Tue, 24 May 2016 17:01:48 +0000 W. Eugene Smith - Tel-Aviv Museum of Art - June 7th 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM <p>American photographer W. Eugene Smith (1918&ndash;1978) developed and perfected the concept of &rdquo;photo essay&ldquo; and created the model for &rdquo;humanistic photojournalism.&ldquo; Smith regarded the photograph as the last word and believed photography could lead to social change. His photo essays, published mostly in Life, documented forsaken and ill-fated locations in the USA and worldwide. The exhibition focuses on single images from his major documentary series, which epitomize his social and artistic commitment.</p> <hr /> <p style="text-align: right;">ו' יוג'ין סמית (1978-1918), מבכירי הצלמים האמריקנים, פיתח ושכלל את המושג "כתבה מצולמת" ויצר את המודל ל"צילום עיתונות הומניסטי" מתוך אמונה שהתמונה היא המילה האחרונה, והצילום יכול להביא לידי שינוי חברתי. כתבותיו המצולמות, שהתפרסמו בעיקר בעיתון "לייף", תיעדו מקומות שכוחי אל ומוכי גורל בארצות הברית ובעולם. התערוכה מתמקדת בדימויים בודדים, מהסדרות התיעודיות המרכזיות שלו, המבליטים את מסירותו החברתית והאמנותית.</p> Thu, 05 May 2016 18:08:01 +0000 Group Show - Pera Museum - June 8th 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Jameel Prize 4</em>&nbsp;exhibition in Istanbul organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London in partnership with Art Jameel, and in collaboration with the Pera Museum is between 8 June 2016 and 14 August 2016.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Over 280 nominations for the&nbsp;<em>Jameel Prize 4</em>&nbsp;were received from countries as far ranging as Afghanistan, Mali, Puerto Rico and Thailand.

Crumb, Rembrandt van Rijn - Seattle Art Museum - June 9th 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM <div class="bi-exhibitionDescription"> <div class="ms-rtestate-field" style="margin-top: 15px;"> <div class="sam-event-description" style="margin-top: 15px;"> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Graphic Masters: D&uuml;rer, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Goya, Picasso, R. Crumb</em> features groundbreaking and timeless artists who worked in the medium of printmaking over its 500-year history, including a masterwork by one of the seminal graphic artists of our time.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">With over 400 works included, it will be the Seattle Art Museum&rsquo;s first large-scale exhibition devoted to the graphic arts.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Albrecht D&uuml;rer, Francisco Goya, and Pablo Picasso are among the artists who considered printmaking a primary form of expression and experimentation. D&uuml;rer&rsquo;s ambitious <em>Large Woodcut Passion</em> (1497/1510) was one of the first projects to emancipate printmaking from book production and create a market for a new level of collector. Goya&rsquo;s renowned <em>Caprichos</em> (1799) combined word and image to satirize injustices and corruption in 18th-century Spanish society. In the <em>Vollard Suite</em> (1930&ndash;37), Picasso exploited the versatility of the etching medium to create extensive variations on the theme of artist and model.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Visitors can also explore other milestone print series including William Hogarth&rsquo;s <em>The Harlot&rsquo;s Progress</em> (1733) and <em>The Rake&rsquo;s Progress</em> (1735), as well as individual print masterpieces by Rembrandt van Rijn.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The final works in the exhibition are over 200 drawings of <em>The Book of Genesis</em> by celebrated graphic artist R. Crumb. This ambitious contemporary take on the historical tradition of printed book illustrations offers a fresh and original reading of well-known stories and shows how his graphic language goes back to the woodcuts that begin the exhibition.</p> </div> <div class="sam-sponsors" style="margin-top: 15px; text-align: justify;"> <p>The exhibition is organized by the Seattle Art Museum.</p> <p>Special exhibitions at SAM are made possible by donors to:</p> <img style="margin-top: 5px; margin-bottom: 10px;" src="" alt="" /> <p>Presenting Sponsors</p> <img style="margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px;" src="" alt="" /><br /> <img src="" alt="" /><br /> <p>Supporting Sponsor<br /> <strong>Baird</strong></p> <p>Additional Support<br /> <strong>Contributors to the SAM Fund</strong></p> <p>Hotel Sponsor<br /> <strong>Hotel 1000</strong></p> <p>Special thanks to Fundaci&oacute;n ICO</p> <img style="margin-top: 5px; margin-bottom: 0px;" src="" alt="Fundaci&oacute;n ICO Logo" /></div> <div class="sam-image-credit" style="margin-top: 15px;"> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> Thu, 05 May 2016 04:07:49 +0000 - The Honolulu Museum of Art - June 9th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">The introduction of photography was a pivotal moment in the modernization of Japanese art at the end of the 19th century. In an attempt to replicate the vibrancy of polychromatic woodblock prints (<em>nishiki-e</em>), some of the pioneers of Japanese photography, including Felice Beato (1832&ndash;1909) and Charles Wirgman (1832&ndash;1891), both foreigners living in the port city of Yokohama, popularized the production of albumen prints, to which pigments could be later applied.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This rotation includes hand-colored albumen prints by a variety of artists active in eastern Japan during the Meiji period (1868&ndash;1911): Japanese nationals, foreign residents, and several anonymous artists. The photographs are divided into genres that underscore their similarities to Japanese woodblock prints: portraits of women (<em>bijin-ga</em>), landscapes and architecture (<em>fūkei-ga</em>), views of the Yoshiwara brothel district (a combination of the previous two genres), and images of daily life (<em>fūzoku-ga</em>).</p> Tue, 24 May 2016 09:28:52 +0000 - Arkansas Art Center-Museum of Art - June 10th 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">The <em>Delta Exhibition of Painting and Sculpture</em> formed in 1958 to feature contemporary work by artists from Arkansas and bordering states. Today, the Annual Delta Exhibition has grown to encompass works in all media as showcase for the dynamic vision of the artists of the Mississippi Delta region. The exhibition reflects the region&rsquo;s strong traditions of craftsmanship and observation, combined with innovative use of materials and an experimental approach to subject matter. This year's exhibition is June 10th through August 28, 2016.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Liz Garvey will serve as juror for the <em>58th Annual Delta Exhibition</em>. She is the co-founder and owner of Garvey-Simon Art Access, Inc. (est. in 2010). Prior to her current role, she was Co-Director of the venerable Schmidt-Bingham Gallery on 57th Street in New York, where she worked from 1989-1998; and then President and Owner of EKG Art Advisory, (1999-2009). She has been a fine art dealer and advisor in New York City for over 20 years and leverages her professional relationships with galleries, auction houses, private dealers and artists to offer clients a relaxed entry into the often intimidating visage of the New York art world. Liz maintains a boutique gallery in Manhattan that is focused on drawing, works on paper, unusual materials and design; while also acting as curator and advisor to select private clients. Liz is a member of ArtTable, and a founding member of the New York chapter of the Association of Women Art Dealers.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Garvey will select the artworks to be exhibited and will assign the $2500 Grand Award and two $750 Delta Awards. Additionally, a $250 Contemporaries Delta Award will be selected by the Contemporaries, an auxiliary membership group of the Arkansas Arts Center.</p> Tue, 24 May 2016 17:21:01 +0000 - Galerie Wilma Tolksdorf Frankfurt - June 10th 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p>In the first solo show by Jeff Cowen at the Galerie Wilma Tolksdorf, works from the recent series &ldquo;Capturing Eclipse&rdquo; will be presented, previously the series was exhibited at the Kunstverein Bremerhaven.</p> <p>In the late 1980&rsquo;s Jeff Cowen was assistant to Larry Clark. At that time Cowen practiced street photography in the South Bronx, the Meatpacking District and other fringe districts of New York. His later intense study of painting and drawing led not only to the dislocation of his work from the street into his studio, but also had a great impact on his comprehension of photography and its technical means.</p> <p>The analogue image taken by the camera is not the final product, but marks the starting point of the artistic reflection of the motif. The processual way of making an image predominantly takes place in the darkroom. Cowen&rsquo;s intervention in the developing process involves special chemical and painting techniques he has been experimenting with for 30 years. The works resulting from these operations shift on the one side between photography, painting, collage and sculpture and on the other between destruction and creation.</p> <p>In some cases Jeff Cowen totally omits the photography taken by the camera and edits the surface of the negative directly with chemicals, and a variety of instruments, which lead to an abstract painterly image. Hence, the lines between photography and painting melt into one entity. Even in cases when we recognize the classical motifs of art history in particular works such as portrait, nude, landscape, still life or abstraction, the singular genres and individual subjects are rendered to a profound essence.</p> <p>Works by Jeff Cowen often seem to exist outside the time-space continuum. There is no event which can be related to a certain time period. Instead, the works unfold an auratic impression, which can be only articulated solely by and within the image itself. Or in the way Jeff Cowen puts it: &ldquo;I use photography as a language in order to communicate something unspeakable.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;Jeff Cowen was born in New York in 1966, he now lives and works in Berlin. Upcoming solo exhibitions: Sculpture Photographs, Michael Werner Kunsthandel, Cologne (June 2016), Ludwig Museum, Koblenz (October 2016), Huis Marseille, Museum voor Fotografie, Amsterdam (March 2017).</p> Thu, 19 May 2016 14:17:10 +0000 - The Sculpture Center - June 10th 5:00 PM - 8:30 PM <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>9th annual small sculpture exhibition in the region</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Juror:</strong><br /> Amy Gilman<br /> Amy was named associate director of the Toledo Museum of Art in January 2011.
