Robin Jones works with a range of materials to make three di mensional objects and wall based works. He uses a variety of media\; wood a nd bolts from DIY shops\, paper\, cloth etc.\, through which he invents and reworks a vocabulary relating to adaptable\, mutable forms and structures.

The objects have a certain fragile quality\, they seem close to collapse\, remaining upright through internal tension\, but sometimes su ddenly overbalancing in slapstick fashion. They are often modular structure s\, re-makable\, the parts roughly interchangeable\, made through cutting\, dismembering\, replacing. It is not always certain if they are complete an d their orientation and position is usually not fixed or certain.

The work takes in ideas around drawing as a language considered in vari ous ways. \; Line is traced as cut and or join. Speed of line\, qualiti es of surface and speed of surface are concerns\, as is an interest in prox imity\, hapticity and bodily gesture. Jones attempts to explore possibiliti es for combining and composing\, breaking up and dispersing - groups of wor k that may or may not evolve towards coherence.

Changing at regular intervals\, the presentation of the coll ection of contemporary art at the 21er Haus gives insights into Austrian ar t production while simultaneously placing it in an international context. T he current installation The Collection #3 comprises works from the 1940s to most recent positions. Works from the Belvedere&rsquo\;s permanen tly growing holdings and from the Artothek des Bundes are complemented by n ational and international loans. The section Freedom &ndash\; Form &nda sh\; Abstraction juxtaposes works of Austrian post-war modern art with contemporary positions\, thereby demonstrating both thematic and formal si milarities. In search of new identities and languages of form after World W ar II\, artists referred to geometrical construction\, reduced abstraction\ , and gestural painting. These formal tendencies reflected such internation al movements as Tachisme/Art Informel in Paris or Abstract Expressionism in New York. During the following two decades\, abstraction as a genre was to develop into a global language. In the past twenty years\, contemporary ar tists have also harked back to non-objective painting in the form of free g esture\, constructivism\, or monochrome reduction. In the section Sign &ndash\; Image &ndash\; Object\, the focus is on the blurring of bound aries between image and sign\, script and language\, and object and idea. T he play between signifier and signified &ndash\; the form of a sign and its meaning &ndash\; and their unclear statuses are also addressed by making r eference to the pattern of the process of perception and the translation of what is perceived into language. Finally\, Body &ndash\; Psyche &ndash \; Performance deals with social norms and their negotiation in the vi sual arts since the 1960s. Constructions of the self and their renderings\, marked by a tensional relationship between the mind\, social issues\, and the act of representation as such\, serve as a point of departure. Stereoty pes and conventions\, expressed\, for example\, by way of role models and t heir social legitimization\, are primarily addressed with regard to body an d gender.

BUT WE LOVED HER &ndash\; the title of Ursula Mayer&rsquo\;s exhibition was taken from a picture in the April 17\, 2013 issue of the Br itish daily paper The Independent\, the day Margaret Thatcher was interred. The London-based artist collected all the newspaper articles in the days t hat followed Thatcher&rsquo\;s death\, programmatically positioning these f our words at the forefront of her exhibition in Vienna\, and in a phase of her work that foregrounds questions about the opportunities offers by neoli beral identity\, about consumer culture in a post-capitalistic society\, an d about their precursors. Based on sources from film\, philosophy\, politic s and culture\, Ursula Mayer recombines idea-historical texts and images\, developing a multi-layered mesh of autonomous statements and concepts. Her work explores strategies of cinematic image creation which cement social no rms so as to expose the structure\, alter\, and represent exactly these con ventional images through the deconstruction of the filmic language.
& nbsp\;
The point of departure for the large institutional solo exhibi tion by Ursula Mayer and simultaneously the first joint exhibition project between the Ursula Blickle Stiftung and the 21er Haus is a trilogy of the f ilms GONDA (2012)\, MEDEA (2013) and the 16mm double-projected Cinesexual ( 2013). The central characters\, model Valentijn de Hingh and musician JD Sa mson\, embody versions of such diverse figures as Ayn Rand\, Margaret Thatc her\, Medea and Jason\, ultimately converging with Michael Snow in a Two Si des to Every Story reference\, drawing all the threads together. It is a th reshold situation staged to dissolve the oppositions of a binary world-view . Mayer&rsquo\;s actualization of fundamental social topics spans time from the ancient migration story of Euripides&rsquo\; Medea to the riots in the Arab world today\, and insistently investigates the current conditio human a. It explores questions of individuality and personal freedom\, of emotion and the ultimate limit state of human destructivity. The film scripts writ ten by author and art critic Maria Fusco and film theorist Patricia MacCorm ick are based on original source material and pull the viewer into the sens ual world of cinematic narrative while catapulting him or her instantaneous ly into the individualist present day. The films are transported into the e xhibition space in a tableau vivant of different objects and scenarios\, su ch as the body machines of Bruno Gironcoli which embroil beholder in the sp ell of its social and psychological entanglements. The hidden hints and cod ed clues guide his perception along a labyrinth path of sensual and intelle ctual seduction.

Spectacle is a groundbreaking and sensory exploration of music video as an art form of our time. The most comprehensive exhibiti on on music video presented to date\, Spectacle features over 300 wo rks\, taking the visitor through a labyrinth of sound\, movement and vision .

\n

 

\n

Presented across nine thematic sections\, 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.

\n

 

\n

Music videos are the playground of film directors and cinem atographers\, who use cutting-edge special effects and visual technologies to change the way that music is promoted and consumed. This exhibition is d esigned to highlight the central place of these landmark music videos in po pular culture.

\n

Spectacle brims with music video history\, fr om the earliest sound films of musicians such as Louis Armstrong\, Bessie S mith and Cab Calloway\, through to the latest online sensations.

\n

Th e exhibition features promotional videos for pioneers such as Bob Dy lan\, The Beatles\, and David Bowie\, innovators such as Devo\, Björk\, and the Beastie Boys\, and icons such as Madonna\, U2\, and Nirvana. Specta cle spotlights the MTV masters who expertly used the medium to define t heir public identities\, through to artists like OK Go\, Lady Gaga and Kany e West who follow in their footsteps today.

\n

The music videos featur ed in the exhibition span the experimental and the extravagant\, the politi cal and the provocative\, as well as epic productions which cross the bound ary into short film\, demonstrating that creative ingenuity is the key to c reating a perfect marriage of sound and vision.

\n

Some of the world’s most innovative cinematic figures\, who developed their signature style th rough experimentation with music video\, such as Michel Gondry (The White S tripes\, The Chemical Brothers)\, Spike Jonze (Björk\, Fatboy Slim) and Mar k Romanek (Lenny Kravitz\, Jay Z) feature throughout Spectacle.

JULES OLITSKI&rsquo\;s Late Paintings reinvestigate the colo r\, impasto\, and handling found in his earlier paintings &ndash\; cultivat ing his previous styles and influences\, and delivering his final messages to the world.

\n

Referred to as &ldquo\;Orb&rdquo\; paintings by his f riend\, the artist\, Walter Darby Bannard\, his Late Works are among the br ightest and boldest within his oeuvre. The subject matter appears to transi tion from ethereal\, earthly landscapes to cosmic playgrounds. The process includes methods that he used when creating his Spackle\, Stain\, and Spray paintings. To form the &ldquo\;Orbs&rdquo\;\, Olitski piled acrylic gel of ten mixed with pumice and other mediums onto the canvas\, then smoothed out the emulsion with his hand in a circular motion\, creating the Haute P&aci rc\;te-material effect starkly evident in his Spackle paintings of the late 1950s. The &ldquo\;Orbs&rdquo\; in these Late Paintings also seem to refer back to the nebulous circles of the Stain period of the early &lsquo\;60s. Olitski used a portable air blower to mix paint across the surface of the canvas\, recalling his experiments with unorthodox tools in his Spray paint ings of the late &lsquo\;60s as well as brooms\, mops and squeegees used in the &lsquo\;70s and &lsquo\;80s. The Late Works are often framed with a co lorful outline reminiscent of the edges in many Spray paintings. The combin ing of these techniques\, as well as the vibrant palette\, culminates into something uniquely celebratory in the Late Work.

\n


Throughout Olitski&rsquo\;s career\, naming a painting was significant and done after completion. Unlike many of his contemporaries\, Olitski preferred not to gi ve a painting a simple title or number. Instead\, he would choose a specifi c reference to something he&rsquo\;d read or experienced\, &ldquo\;somethin g personal that maybe no one else would know.&rdquo\; The Late titles often reference spiritual texts or articulate an attitude\, often reinforcing Ol itski&rsquo\;s belief that being an artist is &ldquo\;&hellip\; a spiritual and a moral undertaking.&rdquo\; The titles evoke hope\, introspection and optimism.

"If you want to get int o his work\, guess how many colors are represented in the various pieces on display. For instance\, Stanczak used simple black and white in one of his transparencies pieces called &ldquo\;Intravert I.&rdquo\; When studied and mused upon\, a viewer can begin to see other shades &ndash\; purple someho w coming through as one tone.

\n

In his &ldquo\;It&rsquo\;s Not Easy Being Green\,&rdquo\; one migh t think in this grid work that there are two basic colors being employed &n dash\; blue and green. On closer study\, there are actually 45 different co lors.

\n

How does the ar tist do it? How indeed. You can see\, if you look closely enough that Stanc zak juxtaposes color and manipulates the closeness or distance between sepa rations of colors. Stanczak may begin by painting a canvas black or white\, or green or blue\, and then applying stripes of tape (from his own tape ma chine) in varying distances between lines before he applies the second\, or 44th color. According to him\, the eye does the rest by making connections and applying some kind of order to what it is looking at."

Line Color Illusion: 40 Years of Julian Stanczak showcase s paintings and prints collected by the Akron Art Museum since 1970. The ex hibition documents both Julian Stanczak&rsquo\;s impressive career as a mas ter of color and the museum&rsquo\;s longstanding commitment to his work.\n


A longtime resident of Northeastern Ohio and retired Clevelan d Institute of Art professor\, Julian Stanczak earned international recogni tion as a pioneer of &ldquo\;Op Art\,&rdquo\; a style based on optical illu sion\, following his first New York exhibition at Martha Jackson Gallery in 1964. Soon after\, Stanczak&rsquo\;s work--which he characterizes as perce ptual abstraction&mdash\;was included in the Museum of Modern Art&rsquo\;s landmark exhibition The Responsive Eye. Stanczak has continued to draw upon his deep understanding of color theory to explore how colors interact and are perceived. While his signature motifs have evolved\, his paintings and prints over the years are characterized by lines and colors that set up vib rations and create pulsating patterns.

\n


The Akron Art Museum hosted one of the first public museum exhibitions of Julian Stanczak&rsquo\ ;s work and acquired the painting Dual Glare in 1970. Since that t ime the museum has augmented its collection with paintings and screen print s representing the variety of materials\, techniques and formal elements th at Stanczak continues to explore.

During the years leading up to and following World War II\ , many American artists worked in styles that merged influences from Europe an Surrealism with native realist traditions. \;On the face of it\, Sur realists\, who explored the subconscious in search of higher realities\, an d realist artists\, who rely on motifs drawn from the observable world\, ma y appear to pursue conflicting styles. \;However\, a number of artists practicing during this tumultuous period married aspects of both approaches to create timely and compelling images. \;
\n
 \;
\n
Featuring more than 60 paintings\, drawings\, prints and photographs d ating from 1930 to 1955 drawn from the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art\, Real/Surreal examines how American artists used str ikingly naturalistic details to imaginative images inspired by dreams and h ow they introduced disconcerting undertones into compositions that featured seemingly ordinary scenes. \;The exhibition features works by both wel l-known artists\, such as Charles Burchfield\, Edward Hopper\, Charles Shee ler and Grant Wood alongside engaging images by lesser-known talents\, amon g them Francis Criss\, Louis Gugliemi and Katherine Schmidt. \;
\n
 \;
\n
Real/Surreal offers viewers a journey tho ugh other realms\, be it George Tooker&rsquo\;s eerie subway station or Man Ray&rsquo\;s pool table careening into space under pastel clouds. \;An d often even ostensibly straightforward scenes\, such as Edward Hopper&rsqu o\;s Cape Cod Sunset\, have a disturbing quality\, here conveyed b y the half-drawn blinds and untrimmed grass suggesting a house that has lon g been abandoned. \;The exhibition also offers insights into the challe nges Americans faced during this critical era\, including the ravages of th e Dust Bowl depicted by Joe Jones in American Farm and the promise s and threats of technology referenced by Peter Blume in Light of the W orld.
\n
 \;
\n
 \;First presented as an exhibition drawn from the permanent collection at the Whitn ey Museum of American Art in New York in 2010\, Real/Surreal was g reeted with critical praise that inspired its tour to four additional museu ms nationwide. \;The Akron Art Museum showing\, accompanied by signific ant interpretive programming\, is made possible by generous support from Th e Henry Luce Foundation. \;

The exhibition Albertina Contemporary will be closed from 28 to 29 Octobe r 2013.

\n

The works currently on display are a selection of approximately 120 pieces from the Albertina's collection of contemporary art\, with a focus on the highlights of the museum's collecti ons. Works by Anselm Kiefer\, Gerhard Richter\, Markus Lü\;pertz\, Fran z Gertsch\, Maria Lassnig\, Florentina Pakosta\, Arnulf Rainer\, Robert Lon go and Herbert Brandl are amongst the samples at the heart of this year's e xposition of contemporary artworks at the Albertina.

\n

Since its foundation in 1776\, art of the relevant period has always found a place at the centre of new acquisitions. In continuation of the traditio n established at the very outset and observed by the collection's initiator \, Albert von Sachsen-Teschen\, contemporary works on paper are an essentia l ingredient of museum policy governing collections and exhibitions.  \ ; The exhibition of the museum's own items of contemporary art\, allowing i nsights into the most recent period of art history\, is thus a core task fo r the Albertina and one which adheres closely to tradition.

In the autumn of 2013\, the Albertina will be presenting aro und 160 works by Henri Matisse and the fauvists. Most of the works of the y oung artists\, who art critics at the time compared with "fauves" ("wild an imals")\, are available to view for the first time ever in Vienna and Centr al Europe. Henri Matisse was the head and the spokesman of the fauves. Toge ther with his group of artists\, he caused a stir in 1905 at the 3rd Paris Autumn Salon. Their paintings literally roared from the walls. The public w as appalled by the violent\, apparently hastily applied brush strokes and t he colourful\, intensely luminous colours. The motif was secondary\; what c ounted was expression. In addition to the famous paintings\, the exhibit de monstrates that Matisse and the fauves also strived for expression and inte nsity in their bronzes\, ceramics\, stone sculptures and furniture. Fauvism lasted only two years\, but was\, as the first avant garde movement of the 20th century\, of epochal significance for the development of Modernity.

The Dreaming Russia exhibit allows unique insight into conte mporary Russian art. Many of the artists presented here can be seen for the first time in Austria\, although they are already successful and well-know n in their homeland. Contemporary art from Russia is a phenomenon that has to date received little attention in Europe. Our picture of Russian art is still primarily influenced by its avant garde. This narrowing of the Europe an view to this small section of Russian Modernity is explained by the extr aordinary impact originating from the art scene in Petrograd between 1910 a nd 1925.

Thanks to a cooperative project with Gazprombank\, it i s now possible for the Albertina to present the current artistic work comin g from Russia\, which polymorphically serves all art forms: painting and ph otography\, room installation\, performance and sculpture. A strict formali sm is always found behind these varied positions\, which assigns a construc tively precise location to each individual element\, from the composition w ithin the painting to arrangements requiring a large amount of space: a des ign principle rooted very deeply within the early period of the Russian ava nt garde. Both in its conceptual approach and in its constructive spirit\, recent Russian art is characterised by the consequences of what Stalin and his doctrine of socialist realism were only able to interrupt\, but not ext erminate.

In a cabinet exhibition\, the Skulpturensammlung directs its focus on the nude around 1900. On view are small-sized works from their ow n holdings by German and French artists such as Ernst Moritz Geyger\, Arist ide Maillol\, Auguste Rodin and Bernhard Hoetger. Aspects of body\, landsca pe and eroticism are illustrated in nude sculpture of classic modernism. On ce presented in cases of the so-called Schaudepot\, bronze and marble sculp tures are now exhibited in a light setting and can be observed from all sid es. Here\, they enter into a dialogue with each other.

\n


In the exhibition different subject areas reveal central textual and formal appea rances in nude sculpture around 1900. Auguste Rodin\, for instance\, who is known as the founder of modern sculpture\, introduced the introverted figu re in sculpture. His marble work &lsquo\;Eve&rsquo\; of 1881 is one example . Inspired by Rodin\, sculptors such as Stanislaus Cauer\, Max Lange or Pau l Sturm created elegiac nudes of Art Nouveau\, which seem to be isolated by space and whose meaning is incumbent upon the audience. Also the central t opic of the female nude bathing or at the toilette served as a good surface onto which an idealized role model of the woman could have been projected.

This exhibition comprises three rooms of new works by Gerhar d Richter from his current series of strip pictures and glass objects\, most of which were created specifically for this show.

For his Strips series\, begun in 2011\, Richter uses one of his own earlier works as point of departure and source material. He digitally disse cted his 1990 Abstract Painting (724-4) into 4\,096 sections\, and mirrors\, multiplies and recombines these details\, finally printing them as pictures composed of horizontal stripes\, in various formats up to 10 me tres in length. These works bear witness to the unceasing creativity of thi s artist\, who was born in Dresden in 1932. Using computer-controlled image -making processes to reinterpret his own abstract painting\, Gerhard Richte r thereby achieves surprising pictorial inventions.

Glass has pl ayed an important role in Gerhard Richter&rsquo\;s work since the 1960s. Hi s most recent work in this medium\, which is to have its first public showi ng in the Dresden exhibition\, is a further development of his 2002/2010 sc ulpture\, 9 Upright Standing Panes\, which will be on view concurr ently in the permanent collection in the Albertinum.

\n

The new revers e glass paintings\, now in a large format for the first time\, are also the result of such observant and controlled coincidence. Richter has applied l acquer paints to a smooth surface\, mixed them with a palette knife and the n left them for awhile. The colours run into one another\, intermingle and coalesce into fantastic structures. Finally\, Richter presses a glass plate onto the damp paint\, thus fixing the momentary result on the surface of t he glass. The dynamics and the random nature of the merging colours play a decisive role in this creative process.

The exhibition Gerhard Rich ter. Strips &\; Glass has been organised in association with the Kunstmu seum Winterthur\, where it will be on show from 18 January until 21 April 2 014.

In its various forms\, Realism comprises an attempt to find an aesthetic that is true to life. This exhibition\, drawn entirely from th e AMAM&rsquo\;s collection\, explores the various approaches undertaken by Realist artists from the 19th to the mid-20th centuries\, in the name of ac hieving an aesthetic that would faithfully represent the contemporary world . The Realist movement first achieved cohesion in mid-19th century France\, where artists began to undermine what they perceived as the contrived arti stic practices of the French Academy. Championing subjects that found inspi ration in the ambient world rather than in classical tradition\, these arti sts aimed to frankly portray France&rsquo\;s natural landscape\, working cl asses\, and rural society.

\n

The trends first set in motion by French artists reverberated throughout the rest of Europe\, reaching areas such a s The Hague\, where artists created naturalistic paintings of the Dutch lan dscape. The achievements of European Realists effectively broadened the sub ject matter and techniques deemed suitable for artistic representation\, se tting the stage for the experimental works of Impressionist and post-Impres sionist artists of subsequent generations.

\n

Across the Atlantic\, 19 th-century American artists also expressed realistic tendencies\, creating detailed landscape studies and minutely rendered still lifes. Later manifes tations of Realism found form in the works of American Regionalist artists\ , who depicted everyday life in the Midwest\, as well as in the works of th e Ashcan School and urban realists\, who recorded the gritty\, often unappe aling realities of American city life.

\n

Whether by practicing direct observation from life\, depicting accessible subjects\, or portraying vari ous social realities\, the artists in this exhibition shared a common goal of representing the modern world. The various techniques\, subjects\, and p ractices used reflect not only the complexity of contemporary life\, but al so the enormity of their artistic project.
