French artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s current exhibition at Esther Schipper Gallery, Return to Noreturn, revisits and rewrites her 2008-2009 exhibition TH.2058 at the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Return to Noreturn hovers between documentation and fiction, its semi-narrative arc held together by two videos filmed at the Tate during the last week of her show there. Though the videos are records of the previous exhibition, they deliberately stage a new story, cycling between past and future as t... [more]

“The Spiral and the Square” is one exhibition, curated by Daniela Castro and Jochen Volz, which is part of a larger project initiated so as to approach the issues of translation and translatability of other places from a primarily Swedish perspective—beginning with a close-up on Brazilian culture. Only one of many cultures which continue to infiltrate Sweden bringing up issues of nationality, tolerance, collaboration and compromise, shows like this one are increasingly important to those who ques...

The parks that surround some museums isolate art into objects of formal delectation. Objects in a park suggest static repose rather than any ongoing dialectic. Parks are finished landscapes for finished art. Robert Smithson, "Cultural Confinement," 1972 Sweden, the land of near perfect summers, lush outdoor environments and carefree activities. The tourist bureau is, rare for tourist bureaus, not lying. Marabouparken's group exhibition “Parkliv” (“Park Life”) took advantage of the... [more]

Curator Daniel Birnbaum chose a clever theme in this year’s curated biennale exhibition. It has almost endless scope and he did a fairly good job of making sure that the artists fit the topic – even if that did sometimes mean equating “making installations” with “making worlds”. The art was generally of high quality, interactive, thought provoking and yes, even fun.The first and most entrancing work was Lydia Pape’s “Ttéia I, C. 2002” – a black void shot through with glinting gol...

      The vast expanse of the turbine hall invites artists to create a work on a scale that no ordinary gallery would be able to accommodate, so to be greeted by a wall of red polythene strips half way down the vast expanse was already a bit of a disappointment, surely to be offered such a vast space and such a vast commission one would think to take full advantage of it, as all other eight artists in The Unilever Series have. This initial disappointment was only enhanced once past the polythene... [more]
