ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 - Albemarle Gallery - August 1st - August 24th <p>Indian Summer<br />01 Aug - 23 Aug 2014<br /><br />Albemarle Gallery is delighted to be again collaborating with Arts For India, this time to present the Indian Summer exhibition.<br /><br />Here we are presenting a range of artists from India, as well as Indian artists or artists inspired by India. Arts for India is a UK-registered charity which supports the development of the Delhi- based International Institute of Fine Arts (IIFA). IIFA stands out in India as one of the few private sector providers of art education in a country where public investment is very poor.<br /><br />Over 375 students receive an education at IIFA, many of them having their fees and boarding covered via the Four Year Scholarship Programme which sees future students sponsored through their studies by patrons from across the world.<br /><br />A third of proceeds from the sale of the works from the exhibition will go to Arts for India in support of its objectives.<br /><br /></p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 11:34:05 +0000 - IMT Gallery - August 7th 12:00 PM - 9:00 PM <div id="content"> <div class="entries"> <div class="post"> <p style="text-align: justify;">Filmarmalade are proud to present The Modern Language Experiment&rsquo;s <em>Imagining a Re-Synchronizing (The Phantom Twin)</em>, a new video installation of existing and new video work</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Modern Language Experiment&rsquo;s one day installation takes as its starting point their recently published film, <em>Imagining a Re-Synchronizing (The Phantom Twin)</em> and attempts to deconstruct it by revealing the various slippages of time and space that remain hidden within the original work, so revealing the many inconsistencies that lie deep within the facade of the play of narrative and image.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>It will end, Childan thought.

He studied at the University of California (Berkeley and Santa Barbara) and at Yale University. He has lived in New York since 1966. His first solo exhibitions were held at Galleria La Salita, Rome (1966), and at the Leo Castelli Warehouse, New York (1969). His first solo museum exhibition was presented at Pasadena Art Museum (1970). Serra has since participated in several Documenta exhibitions (Kassel, 1972, 1977, 1982, and 1987), and in the Venice Biennales of 1980, 1984, 2001, and 2013. Serra&rsquo;s work has been shown in numerous solo museum exhibitions at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1977); Centre Pompidou, Paris (1984); Museum of Modern Art, New York (1986 and 2007); and other museums in Europe, the U.S., and Latin America. In 2005, eight large-scale works were permanently installed at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. A traveling survey of Serra&rsquo;s drawings was on view in 2011&ndash;12 at Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Menil Collection, Houston. In April 2014, Serra installed a major permanent landscape sculpture in the desert of the Brouq Nature Reserve in western Qatar.</p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:59:22 +0000 Adriano Costa - Zabludowicz Collection - June 26th - August 10th <p style="text-align: justify;">Through an intuitive approach, which he compares to the rhythms of music, Costa composes shapes and textures that are often subtle, yet full of narrative possibility. The boundaries between art and non-art objects, and the distinction between the throwaway and the precious are actively questioned. While working in the lineage of 20th century abstraction and installation such as Brazilian Concrete and Neo-Concrete art and Italian Arte Povera, Costa pursues an irreverent, and very current, path.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In the installation <em>From My Body Comes, Through Your Body Goes, </em>2009&ndash;2012 materials such as brightly coloured towels, bronze cast plaques, black umbrellas, gold coated rubber and collaged tourist T-shirts are deftly combined to suggest unspecified symbolic meanings. Presented in the Middle Gallery, Costa reactivates this group of works in relation to the traces of its past use.</p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:47:54 +0000 Phillip Allen - The Approach - August 4th - October 5th Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:36:28 +0000 Yellon Ran Huang - St Martin-in-the-Fields - August 1st - September 28th <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Yellon&rsquo;s 2nd solo landscape painting exhibition &mdash; &lsquo;London Street&rsquo; series sheds light on the modern cityscape.&nbsp; In the paintings, the simplified and symbolic human figures act as the rushing strangers setting in the well-developed, well-planned city streets and refer to the realism of our busy modern living.&nbsp; By capturing the most common, non-noticeable scenes that we encounter in our everyday life it intends to challenge us to re-vision, re-think and reflect on the way we perceive ourselves and our surroundings which we often neglect and forget.&nbsp;&nbsp; It evokes us to search the inner desire beneath the material satisfaction.</span></p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:35:30 +0000 Peter Knight - St Martin-in-the-Fields - August 4th - August 31st <h2 style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Photographic exhibition by Peter Knight in conjunction with Hyderapals India Educational Trust and the International Committee of St Martin-in-the-Fields </em></span></h2> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">In 2012, photographer Peter Knight was invited by the trustees of Hyderapals India Educational Trust to visit a school they support in the slums of Hyderabad. Expecting to be overwhelmed by destitution and poverty, Peter instead found himself captivated by the beauty he found amongst the so-called &ldquo;untouchable&rdquo; Dalit Caste left behind in the wake of India&rsquo;s economic boom. This photographic exhibition of some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised children in Hyderabad raises the question: can human beings ever truly be &ldquo;untouchable&rdquo;?</span></p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:34:32 +0000 William S. Burroughs - Londonewcastle Project Space - August 28th - September 7th <p style="text-align: justify;">We are very proud to launch this new exhibition of William S Burroughs&rsquo; incredible art, never before seen in this setting with many pieces never having been previously exhibited. The exhibition will feature around 40 original Burroughs works, in addition to new multimedia experiments, alongside an exciting programme of talks, film screenings and workshops.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">William S Burroughs is recognised as one of the most culturally influential writers and visionaries of the 20th Century and his legacy continues to steer world culture and creative thinking. A progenitor of the Beat Generation, his writing and ideas changed literature forever. Burroughs&rsquo; multi-media collaborations spawned new directions in film and music and his art is only now being properly discovered and explored. His works come alive in new ways each day and his legacy is constantly evolving.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In many ways Burroughs was creating art for future generations. In 2014, the centennial year of his birth, his work continues to strike poignant chords. It has an enduring relevance, bringing to light important issues that are in sync with the times. He made many prescient predictions on technological evolution and the oversteps of sociopolitical &lsquo;Control&rsquo; systems. Burroughs created many works as a form of resistance; his stated purposes included exposing systems of oppression and creating a &ldquo;mythology for the space age,&rdquo; complete with &ldquo;heroes and villains with respect to overall intentions with regard to this planet.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;-control symbols pounded to word and image dust; crumbled cloth bodies of the vast control machine- the whole structure of reality went up in silent explosions under the whining sirens-&rdquo; - The Ticket That Exploded, 1962</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The act of non-conformity and dissent runs deep within the Burroughs ethos. There are many anarchic graffiti-esque elements in Burroughs&rsquo; paintings, for which he used spray paint aerosols, stencils, paste-up collages and letterforms. His marks are those of an ambitious and rebellious outsider scrawling text and layering images into new forms.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Burroughs&rsquo; art works were mainly created from the early &rsquo;80s to late &rsquo;90s and resonate well with the vibrant street art of today&rsquo;s East London, where this exhibition is being premiered. Graffiti tags form &lsquo;cut-ups&rsquo; of texts along the train tracks and the diverse and colourful illegal art that covers this part of the city has always fostered a space for free thought.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">After complaining that writing was &ldquo;50 years behind painting,&rdquo; artist, collaborator and friend Brion Gysin discovered and introduced Burroughs to the &lsquo;cut-up&rsquo; method. With this technique the two proceeded to disassemble and reappropriate written, spoken language and visual art. He was very inspired by the unforeseen connections and associations which appeared in random montages of words and images, reporting that, &ldquo;When you cut into the present, the future leaks out.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">He had always been aware of and fascinated from young age by possibilities of unseen realms and a &lsquo;magical universe.&rsquo; During childhood Burroughs had hallucinations involving animals crawling through the wallpaper around his bedroom, these visions fueled his constant experiments to peer through walls of consensus reality.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Burroughs reveled in the act of painting, a ritual experimentation with far-reaching intent. Often started as magical spells or incantory scrawlings, his paintings are filled with word and sentence fragments. Little is legible, though, as he was often attempting to &ldquo;rub out the word&rdquo;, or, cut its association lines by making a word a &ldquo;tangible thing&rdquo; - and then altering it. He also keenly experimented with the shapes of the natural world around him and the effects of gunpowder and fire power, often letting off rounds into canvases and paint. All these works have a powerful presence and transmit something from within that awaits decipherment.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;Words and images melted into air.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Burroughs was informed by a lifetime of dialogue with provocative and penetrating thinkers. Notable collaborators in his lifetime include Antony Balch, Ian Sommerville, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Keith Haring, Robert Rauschenberg, George Condo, Robert Wilson, Tom Waits, Kurt Cobain, John Giorno, Terry Southern, and Gregory Corso. He has been cited as having provided inspiration for countless of others, including David Bowie, David Cronenberg, Patti Smith, Will Self, William Gibson, Thurston Moore, John Waters, J.G. Ballard, The Beatles, The Klaxons and many more.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Burroughs is a prophet for the 21st Century with much of his artistic work still waiting to be unraveled.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;Punch a hole in the big lie. Punch a hole for me.&rdquo; - Last Words, 1997</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Curated by James Elphick (Guerrilla Zoo) and Yuri Zupančič (William Burroughs Communications) and with support from Londonewcastle Project Space.</p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:19:02 +0000 Popin’ Pete - Londonewcastle Project Space - August 21st - August 25th <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Popin&rsquo; Pete&rsquo;s Pop Shop</strong> is a pop up festival of hip hop culture featuring the world famous Popin&rsquo; Pete (Electric Boogaloos, USA).
