In this exhibition he presents a collection of intimate oil paintings of dead artists. Operating simultaneously as portraits and still life paintings, these works are contemporary memento mori, serving as reminders of our mortality to both artist and audience. Being obituaries of deceased artists only, this is Mendes&rsquo; most personal exhibition to date. They are wistful, ritualistic memorials to artists that Mendes has known and / or admired, including Anthony Caro, Lucian Freud, Chris Burden and Robert Rauschenberg.</p> <p align="justify">Beyond a rendition of a given subject, Mendes&rsquo; practice is an investigation into the process of image making, exploring both historical and modern strategies. Walter Benjamin states in The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction:</p> <p align="justify">&ldquo;The uniqueness of a work of art is inseparable from its being imbedded in the fabric of tradition. This tradition itself is thoroughly alive and extremely changeable.&rdquo;</p> <p align="justify">Mendes engages with 16th century Dutch still life painting; portrait painting from Vermeer to Gerhard Richter; Andy Warhol&rsquo;s disaster and headline series; historical and contemporary photography; and mass reproduction in the form of newspaper and digital media. Predominantly, a Mendes obituary is composed of a painting of a photograph of his subject in combination with text, and a subtle allusion to the notion of still life by employing a drop shadow to suggest a newspaper cutting. However, within this collection we often find an artist represented by their artwork, and so the subject is a photograph of an artwork, which has been filtered through the newspaper medium. Both manual and mechanical reproduction must be considered an essential component of his work therefore.</p> <p align="justify">This calls to question notions of authorship. Roland Barthes in The Death of the Author:</p> <p align="justify">&ldquo;We know now that a text is not a line of words releasing a single &ldquo;theological&rdquo; meaning (the &lsquo;message&rsquo; of the Author-God) but a multi-dimensional space in which a variety of writings, none of them original, blend and clash. The text is a tissue of quotations drawn from the innumerable centres of culture.&rdquo;</p> <p align="justify">The generational nature of Mendes&rsquo; paintings, both in the means of production as well as reference points, illustrates this, positioning him very much in a post-modern context. By adopting a methodology that involves interacting with sequential images and across media, he simultaneously affirms and denies authorship. The aura of the original is negated as that of the new object emerges.</p> <p align="justify"><em>Hugh Mendes was born in Germany in 1955. He graduated with an MA in Fine Art from City and Guilds of London Art School, London in 2001 after reading Fine Art BA (Hons) at Chelsea School of Art 1975-78. Mendes has shown globally including Museum der Moderne, Salzburg; Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles; Klaipėda Culture Communication Centre, Klaipėda; Hales Gallery, London; Gusford, Los Angeles; KENNY SCHACHTER / ROVE, London; Wooster Projects, New York; and Raid Projects, Los Angeles. His work is placed in prominent collections including Peter Nobel, Jerry Hall, and Bill Wyman.</em></p> Sat, 01 Oct 2016 16:00:34 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list - APT Gallery - September 29th - October 2nd <div> <div style="text-align: justify;">The Art Licks Weekend celebrates the contribution that emerging artists and grassroots projects make to the cultural life of London.

Unlike philosophers, they are also able to simplify matters, enabling understanding at a single glance by which all is revealed.&nbsp;<em>Ut pictura poesis</em>&nbsp;&ndash; &lsquo;as is painting so is poetry&rsquo;: an insight conjured by the Ancient Greeks and Romans. Mirrors from the very beginning have played an essential role in almost all of Jeff Koons&rsquo;s work. They appear in the first inflatables of 1979, in which glass flowers and other &lsquo;trite&rsquo; objects picked up in discount stores on 14th Street in New York were placed on mirrored platforms and backdrops. Since, many of his most ambitious works, such as the&nbsp;<em>Balloon Swan</em>,&nbsp;<em>Balloon Monkey</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em>Balloon Rabbit</em>, shown spectacularly in New York in 2013, are finished with such shine that the viewer cannot but be aware of themselves many, many times as they circle the sculptures.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Koons goes further than Duchamp, who so famously described the viewer as the essential completer of the work of art, by literally embedding the viewer in his works of art, and as a result plays with their memories of childhood and, more recently, educated cultural experiences as they remember classical sculpture or the history of European painting dating from the Renaissance down to Picasso. Now for the first time he gives a nod and a wink to the originator of conceptualism, whose name is synonymous with art that makes pure and abstracted thought visible. At least that might be one way of describing the inventor of&nbsp;<em>The Large Glass</em>&nbsp;(1915-23). This all leads seamlessly into the concept of the blue glass gazing ball that Koons has now given, as though almost a gift, to some of the most decisive, at least as he regards them via museum encounters, masterpieces of Western European painting.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The gazing ball as such is an object often to be found residing in suburban American back and front gardens and yards, perhaps poised atop a birdbath. However, the conceit of the gaze, not to mention the globe that in its planetary way reaches in all directions whilst, mirror-like, receiving images from the space around it, has deep cultural resonance. Both the high and the low are inevitably related in all of Koons&rsquo;s works. The gaze itself is inevitably part of the natural quest for the image, one that is forever and eternally changing, even as we look. The viewer is constantly changing too, from day to day, minute to minute, even as the image itself, whether in this exhibition or in many of Koons&rsquo;s other&nbsp;<em>Gazing Ball&nbsp;</em>paintings as he chooses to call this body of work, undergoes its own constantly subtle changes. This applies equally to his version of Giotto&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>Kiss of Judas</em>&nbsp;(the original of 1304-06 is in the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua), or Tintoretto&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>The Origin of the Milky Way</em>&nbsp;(1575, now in the National Gallery, London). Some may be tempted to call these versions copies, but that is to denigrate their individual bewildering and stupefying execution, where every nuance of colour, not to mention craquelure and other signs of ageing, have been hand-wrought by the artist and his assistants &ndash; Koons runs his studio like that of a Renaissance master &ndash; even if they are not all reproduced necessarily at a 1:1 scale. Where Walter Benjamin famously argued that the &lsquo;sphere of authenticity is outside the technical&rsquo;, here, with these evocations of great old master paintings, it is in the amazing insanely hand-wrought technique that the transformation of the greatness of the past into the present takes place akin to a great writer or composer who holds up a metaphorical gazing ball to transform or mirror the poetry of the Ancients, bringing it to new life. Think just of Shakespeare as he reinterprets for his own Elizabethan age the dramas of the Ancient Greeks and Romans. Indeed, it is a matter of contemporary observation to note that Koons is not alone today in finding strategies to transform and make relevant mythic art inventions of past ages for the present.<br /><br />However, if we follow the trajectory of Koons&rsquo;s career, from his earliest works plugged into American popular culture, from Hulk Elvis and Bettie Page, we can now more than ever see all these figures as transformations of distant European and other cultures. Jupiter and Hercules, Venus and Daphne are retransmitted to us from past times just as great master painters such as Nicolas Poussin, who himself in his own time was a highly contemporary artist, transformed the classical and Biblical past for his cardinal and aristocratic clients, as did his artist peers. Who is Fran&ccedil;ois Boucher&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>Reclining Girl</em>&nbsp;(1752, now residing in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich) other than the Bettie Page or Lady Gaga of her time? Both transform themselves through Koons&rsquo;s art into immortal heroines of beauty, as was in her own time the famous Cicciolina. Aphrodite, after all, was continually reinvented by Greek artists in the third century BC and even before, each permutation drawing on subjective compositional fantasies."</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />&nbsp;<br /><em>This is an extract from &lsquo;Jeff Koons: The Shining of Time&rsquo;, 2016, an essay by Norman Rosenthal, part of the illustrated catalogue on Jeff Koons to be published by Almine Rech Gallery.</em></p> Sat, 01 Oct 2016 15:42:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Samson Kambalu - Kate MacGarry - October 8th 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM <p>Brunch from&nbsp;10:30am</p> <p><a href="http://www.artslant.com/lon/events/show/425041-capsules-mountains-and-forts" target="_blank">Exhibition</a> continues until&nbsp;Saturday 15 October</p> Sat, 01 Oct 2016 15:26:34 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Guerrilla Girls - Whitechapel Gallery - October 1st - March 5th, 2017 <div class="morePreview"> <p style="text-align: justify;">The&nbsp;Guerrilla Girls&rsquo; new commission for the Whitechapel Gallery revisits their 1986 poster&nbsp;stating &ldquo;It&rsquo;s Even Worse in Europe&rdquo;.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Characteristically deploying&nbsp;their strategic combination of humour, information, bold graphics and&nbsp;a subversive use of public space, their latest campaign&nbsp;includes a banner installed on the front of the Gallery and a display of posters and new research.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Guerrilla Girls: Is it even worse in Europe?&nbsp;</em>explores&nbsp;diversity in European art organisations.&nbsp;It presents responses to questionnaires sent to&nbsp;383 directors about their exhibitions programme and collections.

Each member takes the name of a woman artist from the past as a pseudonym and in public their identities are hidden under gorilla masks. Using facts, humour and fake fur, they produce posters, banners, stickers, billboards, projections and other public projects that expose sexism, racism and corruption in art, film, politics and culture at large.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Coinciding with this new commission and exhibition, the Guerrilla Girls will also lead a week-long major public project at&nbsp;<a href="http://www.tate.org.uk/visit/tate-modern" target="_blank">Tate Modern</a>&nbsp;(4 &ndash; 9 October 2016), as part of Tate Exchange.</p> </div> Sat, 01 Oct 2016 15:24:09 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Alicja Kwade - Whitechapel Gallery - September 28th - June 25th, 2017 <p style="text-align: justify;">Berlin-based artist&nbsp;Alicja Kwade&rsquo;s commission&nbsp;<em>Medium&nbsp;Median&nbsp;</em>&nbsp;explores our relationship to space and time.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A 21st century mobile, featuring twenty-four electronic star charts, revolves at the centre of the installation. Slowly orbiting each other in a three-dimensional composition, the devices evoke kinetic sculpture and occasionally align in the formation of the constellation Cassiopeia.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As the sky charts receive information from GPS satellites showing the current locations of stars, they also vocalise in unison a reading of passages from Genesis. Directly connected to the universe, the screens become windows into a starry Milky Way, positioning the viewer at the centre.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Surrounding the mobile, Kwade (b.1979, Katowice, Poland) has placed several large bronze casts reminiscent of Modernist sculpture. Their biomorphic shapes are echoed in the artist&rsquo;s projection of an ambiguous mass rotating in a black void.</p> Sat, 01 Oct 2016 15:21:34 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Samson Kambalu - Whitechapel Gallery - August 23rd - January 8th, 2017 <p style="text-align: justify;">In a new work&nbsp;for the Project Galleries, London-based artist&nbsp;Samson Kambalu&nbsp;(b. 1975)&nbsp;draws inspiration from early cinema and watching&nbsp;films as a child in Malawi. Flickering images, appropriated&nbsp;footage, improvised projections, unexpected power cuts&nbsp;and a lively audience made every screening a joyful live event,&nbsp;one that also made visible the mechanics of film.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Turning the gallery into a magazine spread, Kambalu&nbsp;projects his black and white films of visual slapstick&nbsp;alongside his writings. Influenced by Situationism and&nbsp;psychogeography, as well as by the Gule Wamkulu rituals&nbsp;practiced among the Chewa people, Kambalu embraces&nbsp;the subversive potential of non-productive time, gift&nbsp;economies and play.</p> Sat, 01 Oct 2016 15:20:04 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list - Frieze Masters - October 6th - October 9th <h1 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Discover several thousand years of art history in a unique contemporary context</span></h1> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Frieze Masters features more than 130 leading modern and historical galleries from around the world, showcasing art from the ancient era and Old Masters to the late 20th century.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Taking place a week earlier this year, Frieze Masters brings together several thousand years of art in a unique, contemporary context.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">See and buy art from over 130 of the world&rsquo;s leading&nbsp;<a href="https://frieze.com/article/frieze-masters-2016" target="_blank">galleries</a>&nbsp;specialising in antiquities, Asian art, ethnographic art, illuminated manuscripts, medieval, modern and post-war art, Old Masters and 19th Century, as well as photography, sculpture and wunderkammer.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;"><a href="https://frieze.com/article/frieze-masters-2016" target="_blank">Highlights</a>&nbsp;include extraordinary art objects and pioneering 20th-century artists at our curated sections&nbsp;<em>Collections&nbsp;</em>and&nbsp;<em>Spotlight</em>; a celebrated series of&nbsp;<a href="https://frieze.com/fairs/frieze-masters/programme" target="_blank">talks</a>, supported by Gucci, examining how historical art influences contemporary practice; guided&nbsp;<a href="https://frieze.com/fairs/frieze-masters/visitor-information/tours" target="_blank">tours</a>&nbsp;of the fair, presented in association with Art Fund; impressive large-scale works in the Frieze

From 5&ndash;9 October, Pattison will realize a new installation at Frieze London as part of Frieze Projects, the fair&rsquo;s celebrated non-profit programme. Curated in 2016 by Raphael Gygax, Frieze Projects and the Frieze Artist Award are supported by the LUMA Foundation.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Working across digital media, video and sculpture, Pattison&rsquo;s winning proposal explores &lsquo;trending&rsquo; data and systems of interpretation or control. At Frieze London 2016, Pattison will install a networked artwork throughout the fair, involving a series of &lsquo;Big Board&rsquo;-style monitors &ndash; often used by media companies to visualize sales statistics or popular news articles, enabling a live response to consumer behaviour. The screens will collect information from the fair envi- ronment as well as the &lsquo;Internet of Things&rsquo;, speaking to visitors about the ever- expanding universe of data being produced and consumed daily &ndash; as well as the politics of data-driven systems, as prophesized in science fiction.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Following an open call, artist applications were received from more than 75 countries. Pattison&rsquo;s proposal was selected by the jury including Marvin Gaye Chetwynd (artist), Raphael Gygax (Curator, Frieze Projects), Beatrix Ruf (Director, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam) and Bettina Steinbr&uuml;gge (Director, Kunstverein Hamburg), with Jo Stella-Sawicka (Artistic Director, Frieze fairs) as Chair.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Raphael Gygax, Curator of Frieze Projects, said, &lsquo;Yuri Pattison is one of today&rsquo;s most important young artists looking in a critical way at new technologies. As a member of the jury for the Frieze Artist Award, I&rsquo;m very excited to offer this platform for Pattison to build upon his thought-provoking and increasingly relevant work, exploring cultures of &ldquo;trending&rdquo; in the digital economy and the implications for human industry, creativity and control.&rsquo;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: small;">Yuri Pattison (b. 1986, Dublin) will open a solo show at London&rsquo;s Chisenhale Gallery on 6 July. He was recently featured as part of the touring British Art Show 8 (2015-16), and created an online commission for the Institute of Contemporary Arts (London) in 2015.</span></p> <p><strong>2016 New Opening Days</strong><br />Wednesday 5 October: Invitation-only Preview<br />Thursday 6 October: Premium Day, 12 &ndash; 7pm<br />Friday 7 October, 12 &ndash; 7pm<br />Saturday 8 October, 12 &ndash; 7pm<br />Sunday 9 October, 12 &ndash; 6pm</p> <p><strong><a href="http://friezelondon.seetickets.com/tour/frieze-london" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Tickets</a>&nbsp;- Book in advance and save</strong><br />All tickets are limited and often sell out.
