In 2010 the Colby College Museum of Art received more than s eventy works on paper spanning from the 1960s to the early 2000s by post-wa r American figurative artist Lois Dodd. For the first time\, the drawings\, watercolors\, and prints of this extraordinary gift will be accessible to the public\, providing visitors the opportunity to experience Dodd's work t hrough mediums other than the oil painting for which she is best known. Thr ee main themes will be featured: the body\, the \;landscape\, and the c ityscape. The delicate and the massive meet in these drawings\, and Dodd's formal approach to the architecture of figures\, buildings\, and natural fo rms offers viewers a meditation on monumentality\, ephemera\, and the lived human experience.

Known for his monumental wall reliefs and sculptures of anim als from the 1970s\, Maine-born artist Bernard Langlais (1921&ndash\;1977) produced a rich and diverse oeuvre in his 56 years. From modernist painter to visionary environment builder\, Langlais created art driven by a deep se nse of place\, and an unrelenting search for materials and subjects that re conciled his rural roots with postwar artistic movements and ideologies. In celebration of an extraordinary bequest by the artist's widow\, Helen Frie nd Langlais\, of her estate to Colby College in 2010\, the Colby College Mu seum of Art will present the first scholarly retrospective of Langlais's dy namic career. The exhibition is drawn primarily from the Museum's Bernard L anglais Collection and also presents loans from several local museums and p rivate collections\, a testament to Maine's deep holdings in the art of thi s native son.

\n

The exhibition will be accompanied by a richly illust rated \;monograph \;with essays \;by Hannah W. Blunt\, Diana Tu ite\, Vincent Katz\, and Leslie Umberger.

Die Kunsthalle Erfurt prä\;sentiert ein e Doppelschau von Julian Rö\;der und Robert Capa im Rahmen des Ausstell ungsformates "CC - Classic Contemporary". Dabei wird jeweils eine klassisch e mit einer zeitgenö\;ssischen Position der Fotografie kombiniert. Den inhaltlichen Ansatz der Ausstellung von Capa und Rö\;der bilden sozial- politische Transformationsprozesse und besonders "Konflikt und Krieg" als d eren Katalysatoren oder Folgen. Die Serie \;Summits \;(200 1-2008) des jü\;ngeren Fotografen zä\;hlt zu den bekanntesten Aufna hmen der G8-Gipfel jenseits der massenmedial verbreiteten Bilder. Rö\;d ers "documentary style" ist trotz seiner real vorgefundenen Motive und Suje ts nicht frei von Konzept\, Inszenierung und Komposition. Somit entziehen s ich diese \; Bilder jeder eindeutigen Aussage oder gar Wertung ihrer Ge genstä\;nde\, was sie gerade als Fotografien interessant erscheinen l&a uml\;sst. Die Erfurter Doppelausstellung ist gleichzeitig die erste grö \;ß\;ere Werkschau des jungen Kü\;nstlers (geb. 1981 in Erfurt) un d umfasst weitere Fotoserien wie die neuesteMission and Task.

\ n

Auch Magnum-Mitbegrü\;nder und Fotolegende Robert Capa (1913-1954) hat sich fü\;r die politischen und militä\;rischen Auseinandersetzungen seiner Mitmenschen interessiert. Seine mittlerweile a uratischen Schwarz-Weiß\;-Bilder belegen nicht nur die sprichwö\;r tlich gewordene Nä\;he des Kriegsreportes zum Bildgeschehen oder faszin ieren durch den "richtigen"\, bisweilen spektakulä\;ren Moment. Sie zei gen auch\, dass der charismatische Fotograf hinsichtlich seiner Bildsprache von Stil und Propaganda der (russischen) Avantgardekunst geprä\;gt war . Capas Arbeiten hat Julian Rö\;der fü\;r diese einmalige Zusammens chau gemeinsam mit der Kuratorin Silke Opitz ausgewä\;hlt.

In the 1920s\, the departure from naturalistic representatio n and the search for new forms of expression led to an extremely productive phase for the development of photography. While artists such as Man Ray\, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Anton Stankowski experimented in their photograms wi th various lighting effects\, the photographs of Jaromir Funke\, Alfred Ehr hardt and others are appealing by virtue of their extreme close-up views an d the plays of light and shade that come about in the process. Taking these early works as its point of departure\, the exhibition presents selected e xamples from the holdings of the museum&rsquo\;s own collection to provide insights into this practice of &ldquo\;painting with light&rdquo\; and an o verview of its various modes of expression. The spectrum of works on view e ncompasses such phenomena as solar lines\, the nocturnal trail of light lef t behind by the moon\, or the spectacular thunderbolts over Walter de Maria &rsquo\;s Lightning Field. Natural light\, otherwise so fleeting\, only rev eals its full splendour when it is captured on photo paper.

In 2014 the Great State Prize for Fine Arts of the Federal S tate of Baden Wurttemberg is awarded for the first time under its new name:  \;The Oskar-Schlemmer-Prize \;goes to internationally recognised c ontemporary artists with a connection to Baden Wurttemberg and entails a so lo exhibition.

\n

The first winner of the Oskar Schlemmer Prize is the internationally renowned artist Katharina Grosse who is presenting two new works at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.

\n

For Katharina Grosse there a re no limits to painting. Having started out in the tradition of colour-fie ld painting\, the artist has been expanding colour into space\, architectur e and landscape for more than two decades\, defying material boundaries and taking the medium far beyond its traditional domain. Making colour manifes t in space\, she paints on a wide range of supports &ndash\; floors and fa& ccedil\;ades\, balloons and mounds of soil\, textiles and objects as well a s on canvas and paper &ndash\; in an equally wide range of techniques that include brushes\, rollers and spray guns. Not bound by formal principles of figure and ground\, her works explore questions of perception and scale. A nd despite the narrative titles of her installations and exhibitions\, whic h suggest a longing for a conceptual world\, her works dispense with symbol s\, references and documents. Instead Katharine Grosse allows colour to exp and as autonomously as possible\, thereby postulating the elementary condit ions and potential of painting.

\n

Katharina Grosse\, \;born in 19 61 in Freiburg/Breisgau\, lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the aca demies of Mü\;nster and Dü\;sseldorf. Before her appointment as pro fessor of painting at the Dü\;sseldorf Academy of Art in 2010 she taugh t at the Berlin Weissensee School of Art. Internationally recognised\, the artist regularly takes part in prestigious group exhibitions and biennials\ , for example in Sã\;o Paulo and Sydney\, and has been honoured with important solo exhibitions by numerous leading institutions\, among them th e UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles\, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris\, the Re naissance Society in Chicago\, the Museu de Arte Contemporâ\;nea de Se rralves in Porto\, the Kunstmuseum Bonn and the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas.

\n

The Public Art Fund is currently showing her f irst outdoor sculpture in front of the MetroTech Center in Brooklyn\, New Y ork. Works by Katharina Grosse can be found in public and private collectio ns\, among them the Centre Pompidou in Paris\, the Museum of Modern Art in New York\, the Kunsthaus Zü\;rich and the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westf alen in Dü\;sseldorf.

'They're waving\, shouting and hanging\, sometimes falling o ut the window. The background is mostly dark\; you can't see what's behind the figures. These are women at windows\, each isolated from her environmen t and not communicating with the others.' This is how the German artist Geo rg Baselitz (1938) described his \;Straß\;enbild\, a monu mental work made up of eighteen paintings\, which he finished in 1980. A ye ar later the series was exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam\, an d in 1989 the work was acquired by the new Kunstmuseum Bonn. That was the s ame year in which De Pont was founded\, and the purchase of this work was a lso discussed here at that time. Now\, twenty-five years later\, \; Straß\;enbild \;is coming to Tilburg as part of a temporary e xchange between the collections of the Kunstmuseum and De Pont. In return D e Pont will be sending two \;Groß\;e Geister\, \; by Thomas Schü\;tte\, to Bonn for one year. Although this is certa inly a sacrifice &ndash\; as will be the lack of access to Richard Serra's& nbsp\;Gutter Splash Two Corner Cast\, which needs to be hidden beh ind one of the walls on which \;Straß\;enbild \;will be shown &ndash\; we will indeed have the chance to become acquainted with another masterpiece from the twentieth century.

In 2011\, IMMA staged the first exhibition from this collection.Second Sight \;marks the donat ion of 50 works to IMMA from the Kronn Collection\, this donation will be s hown alongside a display of work by contemporary international photographer s from the IMMA Collection.

\n

A number of images of Ireland in the 19 50s\, 60s and 70s are represented in the IMMA Collection in works by Magnum photographers such as Abbas\, Marc Riboud\, Eve Arnold\, Elliott Erwitt\, Philip Jones Griffith and Inge Morath. Some of these will be integrated in the exhibition showing the affinities they share for instance with images o f Irish life by Evelyn Hofer and Dorothea Lange from the Kronn Collection. In terms of contemporary photography\, the themes\, motivations\, expressio ns and working practices that occur among artists in the IMMA Collection wh o use photography as their main medium or as part of their production such as Willie Doherty\, Paul Seawright\, Gerard Byrne\, Amelia Stein or Perry O gden for example\, will be explored through juxtapositions with the Kronn C ollection in ways that give rise to potential encounters and discourses. Th e selection of works will search for ideas in common irrespective of visual outcomes and in so doing how one collection can be folded into another.&nb sp\;

IMMA presents a major exhibition of the work of the internat ionally renowned Brazilian artist Hé\;lio Oiticica (1937&ndash\;1980) . \;Propositions \;will include a succinct selection of wo rks by Oiticica\, including vital examples from throughout his prolific car eer with a view to illuminating his art historical importance and relevance to contemporary practice.

\n

To mark the opening of the exhibition IM MA presents \;SUMMER RISING: The IMMA Festival \;r unning from Friday 18 (opening night of the exhibition) to Saturday 26 July . Hé\;lio Oiticica proposed with his work ways &lsquo\;of giving the individual the possibility to &lsquo\;experiment&rsquo\; \; to no longe r be the spectator and become the participant&rsquo\;\, and it is in this s pirit that IMMA invites you to be part of the SUMMER RISING &ndash\; to tas te\, to listen\, to look \, to enjoy and most of all to take part. \;

\n

Oiticica was as an innovator of interactive and experiential artworks whos e work has influenced many of the key contemporary artists working today. A udiences will be encouraged to engage\, explore and participate in this col ourful exhibition - visitors can try on his wearable &lsquo\;Parangol&eacut e\;s&rsquo\; and enjoy the fun of dressing up as a mobile sculpture.

\n< p>The exhibition highlights Oiticica as an artist whose impulse to depart f rom the traditional conception of the artwork\, with a constant urge for re newal and experimentation\, was working significantly ahead of his time. A particular focus of this exhibition is the proposals and re-enactments laid out by Oiticica. Works will be displayed which illustrate the artist&rsquo \;s driving conviction that colour and form should emancipate themselves fr om the surface into space and time\, and that the integration of the viewer is intrinsic to the art experience.

\n

The exhibition at IMMA will ex pand upon previous exhibitions on Oiticica by investigating notions of the script and proposals\, which the artist engaged with throughout his life\, and in particular in his later works. Furthermore\, emphasis will be placed on the potentialities at play within Oiticica&rsquo\;s artworks\, realms o f possibility which the artist triggered through his spectator-activated in stallations\, sculptures\, paintings and wearable &ldquo\;Parangolé\; s&rdquo\;. Recognising Oiticica as an innovator of interactive and experien tial artworks whose work has influenced many of the key contemporary artist s working within the field of relational aesthetics\, the exhibition will e xamine this impulse as it reverberates throughout his oeuvre and into the p ublic realm.

\n

IMMA is delighted to be working in collaboration with the MA course Art in the Contemporary World\, NCAD\, to realise a selection of the written Propositions by Oiticica. These will be curated and enacted by students on Saturday 19 July in the gardens at IMMA\, and will offer a unique opportunity to connect physically and conceptually with artworks.

\n

Opening the exhibition at IMMA will be an introductory section\, Oiti cica At IMMA\, including a succinct selection of Irish and international ar tworks\, chosen by the curators of the exhibition from the IMMA Collection. This key selection will hang at the entrance to the exhibition\, as a comp liment to and expansion on the works of Oiticica\, chosen in particular to highlight the aspects of viewer interaction\, vibrant colour usage and kine tic movement so key within his oeuvre.

\n

Recent solo exhibitions incl ude \;Suprasensorial: Experiments in Light\, Colour and Space\ , MoCA\, Los Angeles\, CA (2010)\; \;Collecting a Poetic Universe\,  \;Museum of Fine Arts\, Houston TX (2007) and \;Hé\ ;lio Oiticica: The Body of Colour\, Tate Modern\, London (2007).

Merging the poetic\, the historical\, the hidden and the abs urd\, \;Unseen Presence \;is a group exhibition which chas es concepts of time\, repitition and suspense. The exhibition merges contem porary vision and ideals with an aim to imagine and re-call the past. Over the duration of the exhibition works may be shown which are incomplete and some might be removed to make way for new ideas. \;Unseen Presence< /em> \;supports various research and studio practices of recent and cur rent arts practitioners participating on IMMA&rsquo\;s Residency Programme and serves as a testing ground for developing projects at the Museum.

\n

Using Hilaire Hiler's 1939 Prismatarium as a starting point Becca Albee has adapted Hiler&rsquo\;s use of a colour wheel set in contrast to grey ba nds on the walls. \;Originally created as a "ladies' lounge" in the Aqu atic Park Bathhouse in San Francisco\, it is currently a senior centre and maritime museum\, hints of which are visible in the video. The grey mural w ill serve as a test site for the addition of other elements during the exhi bition.

Anton ia Low has photographed a window in the rambling hallways of the Palais des Beaux Arts in Bruxelles and printed the image as a voile. Hidden\, forgott en and overlooked areas elude the customary lines of sight\, permitting new possibilities as regards their use\, purpose and charge.

\n

Moon Room \;by Leung Mee-ping is a work about the artist&rsquo\;s recol lection of the first time she saw a Francis Bacon painting. Leung merged he r personal memories and professional influences with new contexts which mir ror the ambiguous spaces found in Bacons paintings.

\n

From a basis in drawing Stephanie Nava is concerned with relationships\, engagements and e ncounters with the natural world. Her work is a montage at its core\, assem bling ideas as much as images or objects in an inherently narrative form\, for Unseen Presence Nava will continue to bring her visual interpretation o f IMMA&rsquo\;s environment to commence a new visual narrative.

\n

Son ia Shiel&rsquo\;s \;Parse \;is the story of a young girl d etermined to bring about the return of her mother from a trip to outer spac e\, in accordance with the laws of jocular physics under which her world is ruled. Set in a cartoon-habitat\, where things do fall slowly\; space and distance are compressed\; death is recoverable from and stars are souvenirs .

Nick Thurston&rsquo\;s pocketbook \;Romantic Tragedy  \;is a potentially infinite epic. It treats the recto-verso cycle of t he codex book like an ox-eye daisy. With one ink\, one fold\, one staple an d the equivalent of one A4 sheet of cheap recycled paper\, it plays out a c lassically romantic\, first-person tragedy.

Albert Weis&rsquo\;&nbs p\;taped silver \;is a folded sheet of paper attached to the e xternal wall with aluminium tape.

Caroline McCarthy&rsquo\;s remarkable site-specific installa tion\, \;Group Coordination (Red)\,2011 lends its title to an exhibition of works selected from the IMMA Collection by McCarthy in collab oration with IMMA. The exhibition includes three recent pieces on loan from the artist&rsquo\;s studio.

\n

Caroline McCarthy has a long-standing relationship with IMMA\, having been resident here on the studio programme in 1997\, and whose works \;Greetings \;andThe Luncheo n \;are held in the IMMA Collection.

\n

McCarthy&rsquo\;s wor k often refers to production and waste and uses art-historical tropes like the still life\, as seen in \;Group Coordination (Red)\, \ ;2011 and \;The Luncheon \;&mdash\;shown here at IMMA in a darkened space. The works cross disciplines\, being at once a drawing and sculpture\, or sculpture and lens-based image respectively. The politics an d absurdity of objects are treated with acerbic wit &mdash\; a mass-produce d sculpture of an endangered species\, as seen here in the red rubber rhino perched on a windowsill &mdash\; or the wide spectrum of coloured toilet p aper employed in \;The Luncheon.

\n

Pairing recent work f rom the artist&rsquo\;s studio with work held in the IMMA Collection is a n ew strand of programming and continues throughout the current IMMA Collecti on exhibition\, including recent works borrowed from Paul Winstanley and Ma rk O&rsquo\;Kelly.

\n

IMMA is sincerely grateful to Caroline McCarthy for her open approach to this conversation with the IMMA Collection\, and t o her gallery\, Green on Red\, Dublin. \;

Bajo el tí\;tulo \;&ldquo\;Convergencias divergentes&rdquo\;&nbs p\;se reú\;nen los trabajos de \;Ignacio Bautista \;(Madrid\, 1982)\, \;Alejandro Bombí\;n \;(Madrid\, 1985)\, \;Starsky Brines \;(Caracas\, 1977)\, \;Sebastiá\;n Camac ho \;(Bogotá\;\, 1982)\, \;Juan Car los Martí\;nez \;(Campanario\, 1978) \;y&nb sp\;Diego Vallejo \;(Salamanca\, 1986). Diver sidad temá\;tica\, té\;cnica y de soportes\, caracteriza la sel ecció\;n de obras realizada para esta muestra\, cuyos autores reflexi onan sobre las fronteras del arte\, hibridan gé\;neros artí\;st icos\, y acreditan su permanente actitud de experimentació\;n pl&aacu te\;stica. Pintura\, dibujo\, collages\, fotografí\;a o té\;cni cas mixtas\, son empleadas aquí\; para proponer discursos distintos p ero que se aproximan entre sí\; por estar todos encaminados a romper con las percepciones lineales y estandarizadas de la obra de arte.

\n

En la obra de \;Ignacio Bautista \;predomina la ma nipulació\;n\, la alteració\;n y la recomposició\;n de im á\;genes y materiales. El artista parte del enorme universo icó \;nico de los medios de comunicació\;n\, de sus noticias e informacio nes sobre una actualidad que caduca velozmente\, para extraer/recomponer nu evas lecturas de esa realidad.

\n

Para \;Alejandro Bomb&ia cute\;n \;la utilizació\;n de las nuevas tecnologí \;as es de crucial importancia en la concepció\;n de su obra. Su proc eso creativo parte de una imagen del entorno digital\, escaneada y fragment ada en franjas horizontales\, que luego se unifican en el lienzo como una i magen global\, proponiendo una sutil reflexió\;n sobre los conceptos de veracidad\, realidad\, subjetividad en la obra artí\;stica.

\n< p>Starsky Brines \;aporta un universo de seres h&iacut e\;bridos y extrañ\;os para indagar en los resortes que movilizan al individuo\, para abordar el tema de la violencia e inseguridad ciudadana de su paí\;s\, la precariedad y desilusió\;n de una sociedad abru mada y ya indiferente por la triste cotidianidad de sucesos violentos que h abitan las pá\;ginas de los diarios nacionales.

\n

Los trabajos de \;Sebastiá\;n Camacho \;plantean la confl uencia de disciplinas plá\;sticas tan habituales de las actuales pr&a acute\;cticas artí\;sticas. Utilizando soportes y té\;cnicas no vedosas\, propone una manera distinta de dibujar a partir del calado en las pá\;ginas en blanco de agendas o cuadernos.

\n

El punto de capt ura de la imagen fotografiada determina la concepció\;n discursiva de la obra de \;Juan Carlos Martí\;nez\, un artist a que se detiene en descomponer los lí\;mites de lo pú\;blico y de lo privado\, proponiendo una reflexió\;n sobre el deseo\, lo sexu al\, la intimidad.

\n

Diego Vallejo \;enmarca sus obras dentro de los gé\;neros clá\;sicos de la pintura\, hacie ndo visible la necesidad de revisitar los lugares del pasado y de -como apu nta el propio artista- &ldquo\;recorrer los caminos sobre los pasos que ya han sido dados&rdquo\;. Prevalece en sus obras la plasmació\;n de esa atmó\;sfera imprecisa que envuelve seres y formas\, el uso de la pin celada barrida que sugiere má\;s que explicita\, y de esa gama tonal armó\;nica y predominantemente frí\;a\, que caracteriza su pint ura.
