The most comprehensive exhibition on music video presented to date, <i>Spectacle</i> features over 300 works, taking the visitor through a labyrinth of sound, movement and vision.</p> <p> </p> <p>Presented across nine thematic sections,<i> Spectacle</i> is experienced through a dynamic fusion of interactive installations, projections, videos and immersive environments, including recreated sets and original objects never before seen outside of the videos themselves.</p> <p> </p> <p>Music videos are the playground of film directors and cinematographers, who use cutting-edge special effects and visual technologies to change the way that music is promoted and consumed. This exhibition is designed to highlight the central place of these landmark music videos in popular culture.</p> <p><i>Spectacle </i>brims with music video history, from the earliest sound films of musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith and Cab Calloway, through to the latest online sensations.</p> <p>The exhibition<i> </i>features promotional videos for pioneers such as Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and David Bowie, innovators such as Devo, Björk, and the Beastie Boys, and icons such as Madonna, U2, and Nirvana. <i>Spectacle</i> spotlights the MTV masters who expertly used the medium to define their public identities, through to artists like OK Go, Lady Gaga and Kanye West who follow in their footsteps today.</p> <p>The music videos featured in the exhibition span the experimental and the extravagant, the political and the provocative, as well as epic productions which cross the boundary into short film, demonstrating that creative ingenuity is the key to creating a perfect marriage of sound and vision.</p> <p>Some of the world’s most innovative cinematic figures, who developed their signature style through experimentation with music video, such as Michel Gondry (The White Stripes, The Chemical Brothers), Spike Jonze (Björk, Fatboy Slim) and Mark Romanek (Lenny Kravitz, Jay Z) feature throughout <i>Spectacle</i>.</p> Sat, 15 Jun 2013 01:24:47 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Julian Onderdonk, Robert Onderdonk, Jose Arpa, Edward G.

Seither hat er eine vielf&auml;ltige Auswahl an Werken produziert und ausgestellt. Im September 2013 zeigt er zum ersten Mal bei Circle Culture in Hamburg. Lennart Grau lebt und arbeitet in Berlin.<br /><br />Der Ausstellungstitel &bdquo;Sparkling Mud&ldquo; (prickelnder Schlamm), vereint gegens&auml;tzliche Bilder in unseren K&ouml;pfen: Der K&uuml;nstler m&ouml;chte in diesem Werkzyklus die Symbolik des Prickelns einer frisch gek&ouml;pften Champagnerflasche mit den matschigen Strukturen einer moralisch verfilzten Gesellschaft vereinen. Der verschwenderisch dicke Farbauftrag im Werk des K&uuml;nstlers mutiert zu wild ineinander verlaufender Materie aus farbigem Schlamm. Eine z&auml;he Masse, die bei bestimmten Werken den fig&uuml;rlichen Ansatz des Malers entstellt und dabei bewusst provokativ-gef&auml;llig bleibt. <br /><br />Lennart Graus fast brutaler Umgang mit Farbe findet einen faszinierenden Gegenpol im Interesse des K&uuml;nstlers an der Leichtigkeit und der Unbeschwertheit des Rokoko. Beeindruckt von der menschlichen F&auml;higkeit zur Dekadenz, wie sie besonders diese vergangene Gesellschaft verk&ouml;rpert, f&uuml;hlt sich der K&uuml;nstler zu provokant kitschigen Zitaten inspiriert: Engel, klassische Stillleben und epische Inszenierungen sind f&uuml;r ihn perfekte Vorlagen, um malerisch den oberfl&auml;chlichen Glanz dieser Epoche schmelzen zu lassen und dessen typische Ornamente zu h&uuml;bschen Geschw&uuml;ren zu formen.<br /><br />In reduzierten, abstrakten Studien bei denen sich der K&uuml;nstler mit der Wirkung von realem und gemaltem Licht und Schatten besch&auml;ftigt, ist er immer wieder auf der Suche nach innovativen Techniken des Trompe L&rsquo; oeil. Mit diesen Irritationsmomenten m&ouml;chte Grau im Auge des Betrachters ein Misstrauen ausl&ouml;sen, das einerseits verf&uuml;hrerisch ist, aber andererseits immer einen zwielichtigen Unterton beh&auml;lt.<br /><br />Die Darstellungen des Lichtes und der atmosph&auml;rischen Bedingungen werden wie schon im Impressionismus zu seiner Hauptaufgabe. Eine Kunstbewegung die schon zu ihrer Zeit mit Innovation, Fortschritt sowie kritischem Denken verbunden war, wird bei Lennart Grau neu belebt und entwickelt sich zu einem dreidimensionalen Bildwerk.<br /><br />&ldquo;Ich lasse mich immer gerne verf&uuml;hren von wundersch&ouml;nen Fassaden, die mich wegen ihrer vordergr&uuml;ndigen &Auml;sthetik dann aber sofort auch zweifeln lassen.&ldquo; Dieses Misstrauen und Verlangen in seinen Bildern ist faszinierend auff&auml;llig und fordert die Aufmerksamkeit des Betrachters.</p> Thu, 12 Sep 2013 03:31:50 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list PHIL JAMES - DAMIEN MINTON GALLERY - September 26th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Smilex, The Lite Ages continues on Phil James practice of reinterpreting the narrative of time and place through reworking familiar images ranging from old masters to religious icons and sporting greats. Delicate and detailed paintings are subtly applied onto vintage prints challenging the viewer to look beyond the surface image and into the depth of the artist&rsquo;s imagination.<br /> <br /> Through this process Phil James creates a world for his audience that is somehow familiar yet also bizarre. Toying with concepts and imagery from popular culture these images are at once accessible yet demanding of contemplation, they are cheeky and humorous but also reflect the intelligence and depth of the artist&rsquo;s character.<br /> <br /> Phil James has been a finalist in the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, the Dobell Prize for Drawing, the Blake Prize and the John Fries Memorial Prize. He has also shown with many important galleries such as Eva Breuer, Australian Galleries Works on Paper, Ray Hughes Gallery, Alaska Projects and Damien Minton Gallery.</p> Fri, 20 Sep 2013 08:03:23 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list John Lavery, Sarah Purser, John and Jack B. Yeats, Casimir Markievicz, Auguste Rodin, Sarah Cecilia Harrison, Maurice MacGonigal, Louis Le Brocquy - Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane - September 26th, 2013 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM <p>Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane is pleased to present the exhibition, <em>Dublin Divided: September 1913</em>, marking the centenary of the Dublin Lockout of 1913.</p> <p>At the beginning of August 1913, the city of Dublin was on the threshold of a momentous showdown between organised labour led by James Larkin, founder of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union, and Dublin's capitalist entrepreneurs represented by the leading business magnate, Cork-born William Martin Murphy.</p> <p>Against this backdrop of bitter class conflicts and the rise of organised labour, the debacle continued regarding the establishment of a permanent Gallery to house the art collection first offered to Dublin by Sir Hugh Lane in the winter of 1904.</p> <p><em>Dublin Divided: September 1913&nbsp;</em>provides an opportunity to reflect on the different agendas of the individuals involved in that momentous and bitter dispute and explore how the history of the Gallery was interwoven with the Lockout. The workers' leader, James Larkin, though raised in poverty, appreciated art and beauty and sought the cultural as well as economic and social liberation of the manual labourer. Se&aacute;n O'Casey noted that Larkin wanted the rose along with the loaf of bread on a worker's table.</p> <p>James Larkin supported Lane's Municipal Gallery project, and declared that William Martin Murphy, for his meanness in the matter of Sir Hugh Lane's offer, would be condemned to keep an art gallery in Hell.</p> <p>A century later, the Hugh Lane Gallery's collection contains many portraits of the key individuals who were active in the Lockout as well as works by artists who became involved in the dispute, including&nbsp;William Orpen and George Russell (AE). The exhibition also provides a rich resource of evocative images that depict life in Dublin in the late nineteenth century and first decades of the twentieth century.</p> <p>The exhibition features paintings, sculpture and drawings by artists including John Lavery, Sarah Purser, John and Jack B. Yeats, Casimir Markievicz, Auguste Rodin, Sarah Cecilia Harrison, Maurice MacGonigal and Louis le Brocquy.</p> Fri, 20 Sep 2013 08:51:43 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Group Show - ESSL MUSEUM - September 26th, 2013 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM <p>On the basis of contemporary artworks from the Essl Collection, the exhibition &gt;Sehnsucht Ich&lt; (Longing for Myself) deals with the diverse artistic strategies of grasping or calling into question human existence and the self. The images of people range from children and youth scenes through self-portraits and pictures of people in the field of tension of society, to reflections on the body and psyche, transience and solution of the figure. What can be seen are paintings by Austrians and international artists, complemented by selected sculptural works. An exhibition highlight are the large-format Gobelin tapestries by the American photorealist Chuck Close, which will be shown in public for the first time.</p> Fri, 06 Sep 2013 08:22:40 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Sylvain Chamberlain - GumTree Museum of Art - September 26th, 2013 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>One-Man show of 21 large scale portraits by Sylvain Chamberlain.</p> <p>Exhibition Catalog anmd Merchandise available at the Museum and online at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/artsylvain and merchandise at http://www.cafepress.com/observationsexhibit</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 13 Sep 2013 19:07:22 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Otto G. Carlsund, Erik Olson, Gösta Adrian-Nilsson (GAN), Franceska Clausen, Thorvald Hellesen, Ragnhild Keyser, Ragnhild Kaarbø, Charlotte Wankel - HENIE ONSTAD ART CENTER - September 26th, 2013 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM <div class="ingressview"> <p>What role did Scandinavian and Baltic artists play in the international art arena during the 1920s? For the first time, important works from Northern Europe have been brought together in one exhibition, providing a unique opportunity to compare their similarities and differences.</p> </div> <p>Nowadays, cross-pollination between the Baltic and Scandinavian countries is taken for granted. This exhibition focuses on a time when things were different, but when there was nevertheless a willingness to participate in a larger, European fellowship of artists and a great need to connect with international movements of art. This exhibition gives visitors the opportunity to become acquainted with our common Northern European history, seen from a fresh perspective.</p> <p>When we read about the art created by artists from Scandinavia and the Baltic, the usual approach is to look at how they were influenced by their periods of residence in major cities such as Berlin and Paris, studying under masters such as Pablo Picasso, Fernand L&eacute;ger, Am&eacute;d&eacute;e Ozenfant, Le Corbusier and Andr&eacute; Lhote. In this exhibition, however, we focus on each individual artist&rsquo;s unique contribution to the art scene of the times, thereby revealing the impact these artists from Northern Europe themselves had on art developments in Paris and Berlin. In addition to showing works by the Swedish artists Otto G. Carlsund, Erik Olson and G&ouml;sta Adrian-Nilsson (GAN), the Danish artists Franceska Clausen, and Thorvald Hellesen, Ragnhild Keyser, Ragnhild Kaarb&oslash; and Charlotte Wankel from Norway, the exhibition will present a rich selection of works by Baltic artists and their European mentors.</p> <p>The catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition will present a network of art dealers, curators and art critics who played a key role in disseminating avant-garde art and the wide variety of idioms that emerged during this decade.</p> <p>After showing at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, the exhibition will travel to Estonia, where it will be shown at the KUMU Art Museum.</p> Mon, 19 Aug 2013 02:32:01 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list David Campbell, Mark Durden, Ian Brown - New Art Exchange - September 26th, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p>Common Culture is a collaborative artists' group consisting of David Campbell, Mark Durden and Ian Brown. Reflecting on the numerous festivals that take place in Nottingham, Common Culture have further developed a theme explored in previous work: art's ability to critically and humorously, intervene in and comment on, complex social situations.</p> <p>Not Necessarily in the Right Order is a video installation that responds to Nottingham's diverse multi-cultural demographic by exploring the social significance of carnival and festival as one of the few public opportunities to celebrate cultural diversity, signify a demand for recognition and re-imagine cultural identity.</p> <p>Working with locally based performers and musicians, the video depicts the process of rehearsal for a new carnival of the future. Unlike Nottingham's existing festivals - Mela, Carnival and Goose Fair - the context and identity of this new festival is ambiguous, with no recognizable group identified as the focus of the celebration.</p> <p>Acknowledging the centrality of music in the construction and expression of cultural identity in 'carnival', Common Culture have worked with Nottingham-based musicians to engineer a unique musical soundscape. The collaboration with local musicians extends from the video, into the sound track; weaving together and transforming both traditional and emerging 'folk' musical forms in order to celebrate Britain's vibrant multicultural heritage whilst speculating on its potential future.</p> <p>The flow of movement, and its interruption, is a central theme of the video installation, replicating typical characteristics of carnival procession. Any attempt to smoothly orchestrate the improvised music is also ruptured by an episodic narration, which reflects on both the activity taking place and wider issues relating to the concept of 'carnival', cultural representation and identity.</p> <p>Founded in Liverpool in 1996 Common Culture have exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad including solo exhibitions in New York, London, Athens, Porto, Manchester and&nbsp;Derry and have participated in numerous group shows including Shopping (Tate Liverpool, 2002-3), the Shanghai Biennale in 2006 and Manifesta 8, Spain 2010.</p> Fri, 20 Sep 2013 07:22:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Cai Jin, Cao Fei, Chen Qiulin, Hung Liu, Lin Tianmiao, Peng Wei, Xing Danwen, Yin Xiuzhen - Bowdoin College Museum of Art - September 27th, 2013 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM <p><em>Breakthrough</em> presents work by eight exemplary contemporary Chinese women artists: Cai Jin, Cao Fei, Chen Qiulin, Hung Liu, Lin Tianmiao, Peng Wei, Xing Danwen, and Yin Xiuzhen. This exhibition displays more than two dozen works in a variety of media by artists who have shaped the panorama of contemporary art, both within China and internationally. Much of the work in <em>Breakthrough</em> features the human figure, which provides a central metaphor for the interplay between individual and collective responses to shifts of modernity and globalization and the rising self-awareness among women artists.</p> <p>The exhibition is organized by Sarah Montross, Andrew W. Mellon Post-Doctoral Curatorial Fellow at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art with Bowdoin faculty Shu-chin Tsui, Associate Professor of Asian Studies and Film Studies and Peggy Wang, Assistant Professor of Art History and Asian Studies.<em> <br /></em></p> Sat, 21 Sep 2013 00:00:22 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Buy Art Fair - September

Originally a painter, Oiticica already began realizing ideas for extending art into space in the early 1960s. These activities made him a pioneer of participatory art, i.e. art which opens up new realms of experience through the viewer's active participation. His oeuvre encompasses his early neo-Concrete abstract paintings, reliefs which float freely in space, and room installations which can be entered and explored by the visitor. During a stay of several years in New York in the seventies, he engaged in intensive exchange with American and European avant-garde artists of the time.</p> <p>Concurrently with Joseph Beuys in Germany, Oiticica likewise strove to dissolve the finalized character of artworks and to make art accessible to society and vice versa. His usable works, performances and environments as well as his writings &ndash; which will also be included in the show &ndash; will convey these ideas to striking effect.</p> <p>In cooperation with the Frankfurt Palmengarten, the exhibition will be enhanced by three works to be presented at the Palmengarten from 31 August to 27 October 2013. These outdoor works will be conceived in such a way that visitors can enter and interact with them. The Goethe-Universit&auml;t Frankfurt's Curatorial Studies course will develop an accompanying programme featuring films, concerts and performances.</p> <p>The retrospective is being curated by C&eacute;sar Oiticica Filho and Fernando Cocchiarale in cooperation with Peter Gorschl&uuml;ter, deputy director of the MMK.</p> Sun, 21 Jul 2013 23:16:40 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Abrie Fourie - SCAD - Gutstein Gallery - September 27th, 2013 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM <p>The project Oblique by South African artist Abrie Fourie follows the publication of the artist's monograph of the same name published in 2011 in Berlin. The book marked the start of an ongoing and evolving project with various exhibition and publication iterations, and stems from a research grant the artist received from the Africa Centre in Cape Town, South Africa.<br /><br />Fourie used this seed funding to digitize and catalog his film archive spanning several decades, which led to an opportunity to once again critically engage with this material and think through different ways of presenting and curating this body of work alongside the development of new creative concerns.<br /><br />Since 2012, the project Oblique has been seen at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; the Johannesburg Art Gallery; Iwalewa House of the University of Bayreuth, Germany; and SMAC Art Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa.</p> Mon, 19 Aug 2013 19:30:53 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Luc Tuymans - The Menil Collection - September 27th, 2013 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM <p>Since his first solo exhibition in 1985, Belgian artist Luc Tuymans has established himself as one of the most influential painters working today. He is well known for his distinctive painting style as well as for his choice of historically and emotionally charged subject matter. Tuymans derives his images from pre-existing sources, photographs, film stills, even mirror images. His deliberately spare palette, often-modest scale, unexpected cropping, obscured spaces, and blurred brushstrokes combine to reinforce the image&rsquo;s status as a replica. Each canvas seems to exist as a faded memory or remnant from the past. For the past twenty-five years Tuymans has focused on some of the darkest and most politically charged events of the recent past including colonialism, the Holocaust, the events and aftermath of 9/11, and most recently the ideological, religious, and cultural conflicts that are unfolding globally. Paradoxically, Tuymans depicts these difficult subjects not by surveying monumental events, but by isolating and exploring both banal details and iconic images.<br /> <br /> Tuymans paintings are typically conceived as a series or group for a specific exhibition the theme of which is conveyed through an ambiguous, yet suggestive title, for example, &ldquo;Corporate&rdquo; (2010),<br /> &ldquo;Proper&rdquo; (2004), &ldquo;Fortune&rdquo; (2003), and &ldquo;Heritage&rdquo; (1996). While the meaning of an individual canvas is thus partially generated through its original context, subsequent exhibitions allow us to continually refresh our understanding of the work.<br /> <br /> The conceptual core of Tuymans&rsquo;s work is rooted in a fundamental skepticism about representation and the originality of painting. Perhaps better than any, the genre of portraiture allows Tuymans to explore the balance all painting strikes between revealing and concealing. <em><strong>Nice. Luc Tuymans</strong></em> will present approximately 30 paintings by the artist from his earliest mature work <em>G. Dam</em>, 1978 to canvases finished as recently as 2011. While most are portraits in the conventional sense, others, such as <em>Bloodstains</em>, 1993 and <em>Fingers</em>, 1995, illustrate the artist&rsquo;s intentionally elliptical approach to representation. Tuymans&rsquo;s works will be placed in dialogue with a selection of portraits from the Menil Collection&rsquo;s permanent holdings. Exploiting the diversity of the collection, the exhibition will include works from ancient, African, and Native American cultures, alongside modern and contemporary examples of portraiture.<br /> <br /> Organized by Menil Director Josef Helfenstein in collaboration with the artist, the exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with essays by critic, artist and curator Robert Storr.</p> Sat, 14 Sep 2013 03:09:49 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list
