\n
\n

The new exhibition e xplores the potential futures of cities\, and the role of architecture\, de sign and the arts within these potentials.

Sensorium 360°\; \;is an exhibition of Southeast Asia n and Asian contemporary art that calls upon the complexity of the human se nses\, and explores how sensory experiences locate us in understanding the world and knowing the self. While the five senses of sight\, hearing\, tast e\, touch and smell are the most commonly known\, other identified senses i nclude the ability to detect movement\, pain\, balance and even time. Oft t aken for granted\, these physiological capacities are indispensable in enab ling us to apprehend the world within and without &ndash\; taking in its pl easures and pains\, even as we absorb data and information.

Spannin g the fields of art\, phenomenology\, philosophy and cognitive psychology\, Sensorium 360°\; \;is a visual art exhibition that moves beyond visi on to 'see' the world through the other senses\, and to experience it in-th e-round.

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.

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.

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.

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).
