Dino Zrnec (b. 1983 in Zagreb\, lives in Vienna and Zagreb) devotes his paintings to the testing of materials. The artist draws attenti on to practical\, usually hidden procedures inherent to painting by making conscious technical &ldquo\;mistakes&rdquo\;: he lets the reverse side of t he canvas show through and turns it into the motif\, overstreches canvases\ , does without gesso or uses it &ldquo\;improperly\,&rdquo\; drips oil pain t onto canvases\, dissolves the colors with turpentine overnight or adds cr acks\, folds or buckling to the surface. Zrnec does not leave the result to chance\, but to the process of experimentation. The deconstruction of pain ting allows no narration and turns the paintings into minimalist\, experime ntal objects. Nevertheless\, and even without knowing about Zrnec&rsquo\;s process-oriented approach\, the paintings stands as works in their own righ t.  \;

\n

In the last project space exhibition with the ambiguous title \;ensure for size\, painter Dino Zrnec fights the space of Zobernig and Klä\;ring as no other project has done before\, while s imultaneously he tries to find the best solution to integrate his work into the sculpture.

Along with Richard Kriesche and Peter Gerwin Hoffmann\, Karl Neubacher (*1926\, Hattenberg\, Upper Austria) is considered \;one of the pioneers of the avant-garde \;and of \;conceptual art \;in Styria. That somethi ng representative in this area developed in Graz in the 1960s and 1970s\, i ts effects spreading way beyond the regional context\, gives the protagonis ts relevance\, lifting them clearly out of the narrow confines of provincia lism

\n

Neubacher\, who in 1969 joined up with Goesch l\, Kriesche\, Haberl\, Hoffer and others to create the producers&rsquo\; g roup \;pool\, was mostly active as a graphic designer. As such he compl eted significant works for the art magazine pfirsich\, the avant-garde fest ival \;steirischer herbst\, the Company HUMANIC \;and others. His p osters\, which were always based on artistic concepts\, were internationall y renowned and awarded. The overall picture of applied arts and austere for ms of fine arts created a unique tension that defined Karl Neubacher&rsquo\ ;s artistic practice.

\n

The medium most used by Neub acher was \;photography. Moreover\, his own body\, which he employed in  \;performances \;and which he documented using photographic and fi lm media\, was just as important: he himself turned into a &lsquo\;public a rt figure&rsquo\;. The short films created in the 1970s make Karl Neubacher one of the hitherto undiscovered \;avant-garde film-makers.

\n

Although his output received international attention\, his w ork today has almost been forgotten. The output was somewhat narrow\, partl y \;because of the the artist's early death\, \;and never found acc eptance in the art market\, not least of all due to the artist&rsquo\;s own intransigent attitude. An extensive retrospective of this exciting and pro gressive work is thus highly advisable\, and recalls \;Graz as the bast ion of the avant-garde in Austria.

Everything flows: painter Katharina Grosse grows floors into pictures\, blurs paint over canvas landscapes\, while spa ces and functional objects are given sculptural clothing. Minimal shifts in perspective transform large into small. An analytical view of detail flows into metaphysical understanding of the whole. The public perceive the pict ure as an independent cognitive event that dynamises the colour space. Capt uring it in a brutal\, direct\, evolutionary and physical way. Like life it self.

\n

Grosse originally comes from painting and se es herself as a painter. Since the 1990s has expanded her three-dimensional works as powerful incursions of colour into physically experienced space. In doing so she creates situations that make colour physically palpable. In her works\, boundaries exist in order to be found\, accentuated and at the same time blown open. At the Kunsthaus Graz\, Grosse addresses the meaning of reduced allusion and the theatrical side of colour by developing a colo ur space into a stage space\, raising questions about the experiential natu re of matter and existence and also about the aesthetic control of light an d linearity.

\n

Born in 1961 in Freiburg im Breisgau\ , since the 1990s Katharina Grosse has been one of the most internationally renowned artists of her generation. Alongside numerous international exhib ition projects both in museum and public space\, on 21.5. she was awarded t he Oskar-Schlemmer-Prize\, the Grand State Prize of Baden-Wü\;rttemberg 2014.

Mizuma Gallery is proud to pres ent \;BEYOND STUFF\, a group show curated by Sueo Mizuma\, owner of Mizuma Gallery. This exhibition features ten artwork s by Ai Weiwei\, He Yunchang\, Li Mingzhu\, Xia Xing and Zhao Zhao\, five l eading Chinese contemporary artists.

\n

< em>BEYOND STUFF \;contains artworks that look lik e sculptures and paintings of random ordinary objects and events. However\, when we look beyond the ordinary &ldquo\;stuff&rdquo\; and into the profou nd context of the artworks\, they are in fact filled with significant comme ntaries on their country&rsquo\;s society and politics. The works are influ enced by recent events that relate to the themes of authoritative power and freedom of speech. They are a reflection of the reality of society. The st atement made by the artists through their artworks is what gives this exhib ition an edge. Beyond art\, this is a stand for what they believe in and an encouragement for others to continue taking the fight in life.

\n

Ai Weiwei \;(b. 1957\, Beijing\ , China) is an internationally renowned contemporary artist. He is not only an artist\, but also an activist\, architect\, curator and filmmaker. He i s well known for having a radical stance on the topic of the Chinese govern ment and politics and presenting them through his artworks. Some of his bes t known works are installations that display a conceptual discussion about contemporary and traditional Chinese thoughts and methods. Ai Weiwei once s aid\, &ldquo\;What you see is not what you see\, and what you see is not wh at it means&rdquo\;\; an idea that drives the concept of \; BEYOND STUFF.

\n

He Yunchang \;(b. 1967\, Lianghe\, Yunnan\, China) is best known as a performance artist who specializes in undergoing physical harm\, docu menting it through photographs\, videos and paintings\, and selling them. I n his past projects\, such as &ldquo\;One Rib&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;One Meter Democracy&rdquo\;\, he purposely had a surgeon cut parts of his body as a part of his performance and recorded the entire process. His performance ar t works are typically very gory and cringe-worthy\, but overall they have t he intention of making a statement on particular current events in society.

\n

Li Mingzhu \;(b. 19 73\, Tianjin\, China) graduated from Tianjin Normal University with an unde rgraduate degree in Fine Arts in 1993 and from China Academy of Fine Arts O il Painting Department in 1996. In his artworks\, he tends to delve into th e issue of disconnect between present day and traditional Chinese ethics an d culture. He is known to pay great attention to detail and recreating ever yday objects used in China. He has exhibited his artworks in the National G allery of China in Beijing and around Europe. He currently lives and works in Beijing\, China.

\n

Xia Xing \;(b. 1974\, Shihezi\, Xinjiang\, China) has been creating one wor k per year for the past seven years. Each work consists of 60 oil painting reproductions of chosen images from the media. Each year he focuses on a pa rticular theme\, such as children\, &ldquo\;the civil way of life&rdquo\;\, and protection of rights. However\, what he specifically paints is complet ely dictated by the media and current events\, therefore the content of his next painting in a series is always unknown. He imitates the flat\, repeti tive medium of newsprint\, where the process includes editing\, selection a nd reproduction. Despite the unpredictable content in each annual series\, he keeps the size and method of the paintings constant in each year. His pa intings have neither a beginning or ending\, it is simply continuous. By cr eating his paintings in this manner\, he makes his works look ordinary\, ju st like how mass images we see in media seem somehow ordinary despite its s ignificant content.

\n

Zhao Zhao \;(b. 1982\, Xinjiang\, China) is known to be one of China&rsquo\ ;s most promising young artists and a leader of the younger generation cont emporary artists in China. He worked with Ai Weiwei for seven years as his assistant and because of the commonalities between the two artists&rsquo\; experiences\, braveness and talent. Zhao Zhao is even said to be the heir o f Ai Weiwei&rsquo\;s important legacy. He uses paintings\, videos\, sculptu res as well as other artistic mediums to portray the reality of his homelan d.

As part of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the city of St. Louis\, the Saint Louis Art Museum presents a free exhibition highl ighting both exceptional art from the reign of Louis IX and later works ins pired by the celebrated 13th-century monarch. Presented in two galleries\,& nbsp\;Louis IX: King\, Saint\, Namesake \;will focus on the ar ts created under Louis IX as well as the ongoing interest and devotion to t his very popular king turned saint. \;

The first gallery wil l be devoted to art produced during the reign of \;Louis IX(1226-70)\, a period of exceptional achievement in architecture and painted manuscripts . Carved ivory and metalwork from the late 13th century will be presented a long with outstanding examples of decorated manuscripts from this period. T he centerpiece of this gallery will be pages from the famed \;Morga n Library Picture Bible\, believed to have been commissioned by Louis IX\, himself. Completed around 1250\, the Bible is regarded as a stellar ex ample of Gothic manuscript illumination\, appropriate for a royal commissio n. \;

Visitors also will get to see the materials used in th e making of manuscripts\, including a display of pigments\, touchable sampl es of the animal-skin parchment used to make medieval books\, and a six-min ute video showing the various aspects of manuscript construction &ndash\; f rom scraping the fur off the skins to preparing the page before scribes exe cuted the text and artists added richly colored illustration. \;
< br />The second gallery will focus on the life and legacy of Louis\, both a s king and\, later\, as saint. The exhibition includes images of Louis from the 17th\, 19th\, and 20th centuries\, along with explanatory material abo ut Louis's life\, his popularity as a saint\, and his relationship to the c ity of St. Louis. Featured in this part of the exhibition will be a 17th-ce ntury illustrated book about Louis's most famous achievement (bringing the Crown of Thorns to Paris)\, a portrait of a 17th-century poet in the guise of St. Louis\, and an altarpiece painting by Louise-Marie Mauduit (1784-186 2) that Bishop Louis William Valentine DuBourg sent to the city of St. Loui s in 1818. \;

De Ateliers in Amsterdam has long enjoyed a close relationsh ip with Gemeentemuseum Den Haag\, a relationship which was affirmed last ye ar through \;De Ateliers DEBUT SERIES. As part of a three-year project\ , the museum offers artists who have served a residency at De Ateliers - th e leading institute for young artistic talent in the Netherlands - the oppo rtunity to present their first ever solo exhibition in a Dutch museum. This wonderful initiative has been made possible by Outset Netherlands with the support of the Niemeijer Fonds Foundation. Alex Dordoy (Newcastle\, 1985) is the second artist to be featured in the series. His solo exhibition can be viewed from 28 August to 23 November 2014 in the Projects Room (Projecte nzaal). \;

\n

In addition to presenting a unique collection of cla ssic modern art\, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag attaches great importance to exhi biting works of new and upcoming artists. This collaboration with De Atelie rs and the partnership with Outset Netherlands make it possible to offer a platform to top talents like Alex Dordoy. Dordoy trained at the Glasgow Sch ool of Art\, and attended De Ateliers for two years. He combines traditiona l techniques with high-grade technology. The artist edits and manipulates e xisting objects\, photographs\, images and patterns using Photoshop\, after which he develops them into paintings or sculptures in plaster\, silicone or jesmonite. He has created new works especially for the Projects Room\, w hich will be shown at this exhibition.

\n

Dordoy has made a series of paintings based on scenes from a computer game he plays on his mobile phone . He edited the screenshots in Photoshop and then painted the images on can vas. The paintings depict empty\, stylised office spaces with windows overl ooking an anonymous urban environment. The paintings also serve as large wi ndows\, where the viewer sees the contours of the painting and can then tak e a look through the windows at the city beyond. This creates a spatially l ayered effect\, which is enhanced by the life-size dimensions of the painti ngs. The spectator walks along the fictitious\, painted spaces and is drawn into them. When you walk past\, it seems as though you are scrolling throu gh photos on your phone or seeing the scenery go by from a train. Yet\, bec ause of the lack of details\, you are unable to pinpoint any specific place or time.

\n

The 'plinth works' or sculptures each consist of a high p edestal on which an object\, such as an old laptop computer or a pair of sn eakers used by Dordoy\, has been placed. Here he endows used\, consumed obj ects with a second life and a new meaning. Dordoy explores how objects can invoke varying associations at different times and in different contexts\, thereby acquiring a new meaning.

The &ldquo\;Memory Palace&rdquo\; is a Greco-Roman technique that prompts its user to remember by populating imagined architectures wit h a sequential path of memories. By coupling physical and psychological str ucture\, this subjective apparatus turns recollections\, impressions and re membrances into the bricks and mortar of a mental dwelling. As one subseque ntly walks the mind through this fictive floorplan\, he/she theoretically r econnects floating parcels into a single\, unified tapestry. In practice\, such passage reveals the dramatic renovation human memory performs upon his tory &ndash\; transforming past events into personal narratives.

On the occasion of the CAC&rsquo\;s 75th anniversary this exhibition will pre sent memory as soft\, malleable clay. Rather than galvanizing history or re newing the supposed fixity of facts\, \;Memory Palace \;wi ll instead revel in remembering as a creative act: highlighting the way our recollections shift actual histories into imperfect\, but quintessentially human legacies.

I have always viewed the camera as a tool to express my vision\, and experimented widely teaching myself how to use it\, rather tha n taking formal classes on how to make photographs.

Cultivating my capacities to see and feel\, and then to express what I see and feel in terms of color and light underpins m y photography.

These words g uide the way to looking at this small sample of Peggy Frank Crawford&rsquo\ ;s lifetime career in art and photography. At age seven a snapshot captured her as she trained her Brownie Box camera at the locks of Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan. The camera has been an ever-present companion since\, accompa nying her upon travels around the world. She photographed her hometown\, Ci ncinnati\, and her favorite residences\, among them New York City and Paris . Crawford also traveled to Yemen nine times. During these years from 1985 to 2004\, relations between Yemen and the USA reflected the speed with whic h the world was changing.

The Swiss-born\, Berlin-based duo Taiyo Onorato &\; Nico Krebs (both b. 1979) respond with humor and wit to various traditions of mo dernist architecture\, documentary photography and the heroic travelogue. B y pecking at such constructions\, the artists reveal a more whimsical\, iro nic\, and subjective vision of the structures and technologies that shape t he way we see and live. Their work simultaneously explores the subject of a rtistic collaboration\, as well as the expansion of photography as an artis tic medium. Though much of Onorato &\; Krebs&rsquo\; practice is photogr aphic\, the artists&rsquo\; engagement with other media&mdash\;film\, sculp ture\, sound &mdash\;sheds the artifice of objectivity and documentation to revel in reconstructions of the world around us.

\n

This is the first major museum exhibition for Onorato and Krebs in the United States\, and w ill collect a variety of eclectic\, but interrelated bodies of work. \; The Great Unreal \;turns photographs taken on road trips in th e U.S. (between 2005 and 2008) into the platform and playground for surreal satire. They returned to this format in 2013 during travels through Centra l Asia\, producing an equally fantastic take on the lived experience of map making. For the \;Constructions \;series (2009-2012)\, the artists photographed Berlin buildings in perspective and extended their co ntours with strategically placed wooden armatures. Further employing the ca mera&rsquo\;s eye to suggest alternative ways of seeing\, the \;Spi ns \;series turns found materials and extreme camera angles into a psychedelic vision of the everyday.

Galerie Edwynn Houk is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent works by Sissi Farassat (Iranian\, b. 1969). The exhibition opens on Thursday\, 28 August and continues through Saturday\, 25 October 2014. The re will be a reception and book signing with the artist from 6-8pm on Thurs day\, 28 August. This exhibition marks Sissi Farassat&rsquo\;s first one-pe rson exhibition in Switzerland. \;

Encountering Sissi Farass at&rsquo\;s work\, one quickly realizes the incredible amount of time she h as spent transforming her photographs with needle and thread\, and slowly\, deliberately\, turning each into a unique object. Upending what seems to b e most specific about the photographic medium&mdash\;the instantaneousness of the picture-taking process\, its completion by the photographic print\, and the endless reproducibility of that print&mdash\;Farassat alters her or iginal photographs by stitching thousands of crystals\, beads\, and sequins directly onto the prints. She redefines figure-ground relationships\, priv ileging the subject as it is seemingly surrounded by a shimmering sea of ge mstones with the circle as a reoccurring motif\, all of which reference Byz antine and Persian iconography as much as Vienna Secession and Pop Art.

Farassat began by altering her own expired passports\, embellishing them with sequins and beadwork\, again repurposing the passport from its o riginal use to a unique artwork. Since then\, Farassat has used either self -portraits or casual snapshots of her friends and close acquaintances. The images are neither staged nor formally posed\, but always seductive and mys terious. \;

Farassat isolates each photograph&rsquo\;s subje ct with her handiwork\, replacing the original background with a delicate o verlay. By doing so\, she blurs the distinction between the photograph and the object\, the revealed and the concealed\, and eliminates the subject fr om its original context. Farassat challenges our gaze and seems to take ple asure in the ambivalence of her transformations. \;

Sissi Fa rassat has been a working photographer since 1991 and attended the Internat ional Summer Academy conducted by Nan Goldin in 1993. She was a student of Friedl Kubelka at the School of Fine Arts Photography in Vienna (1993-94). Afterwards\, she received a stipend for Paris from the Austrian Department for Education\, Science and Art to realize her series Self Portrait Paris. Her work has been widely exhibited in Museums internationally\, amongst oth ers at Museum of Vienna\, Austira\; Landesgalerie Linz\, Austria\; National Gallery of Art Poland\; the Fototriennale in Vienna\; Fotogalerie Vienna\; Hara Museum Tokyo\; FLAG Foundation\, New York\; Museum of Photography The ssalonki\; station 21\, Zurich\; Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts\, New J ersey\; CAN Foundation\, Seoul\, Korea\; Florida Museum of Photographic Art s\, Tampa\; and the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum\, UK. Farassat&rsquo\;s wo rk is included in a number of important private and institutional collectio ns\, such as the Fotomuseum Winterthur\, Museum fü\;r Gestaltung Zü \;rich\,
MAK - Museum fü\;r Angewandte Kunst in Vienna\, Museum Moderne r Kunst Kä\;rnten\, Collection Essl in Vienna\, Collection of the City of Linz and Collection of the City of Vienna. She lives and works in Vienna \, Austria.
