ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 - Lisson Gallery - November 14th - January 17th, 2015 <p>52-54 Bell Street</p> Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:25:26 +0000 Jonathan Monk - Lisson Gallery - November 14th - January 17th, 2015 <p><strong>29 Bell Street</strong></p> Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:23:50 +0000 Berlinde De Bruyckere - Hauser & Wirth (Savile Row) - November 27th - January 10th, 2015 Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:20:24 +0000 Pipilotti Rist - Hauser & Wirth (Savile Row) - November 27th - January 10th, 2015 Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:19:54 +0000 Polly Apfelbaum - Frith Street Gallery, Golden Square - November 7th - December 20th <p style="text-align: justify;">Frith Street Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of monochrome fabric works by Polly Apfelbaum.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2013 Polly Apfelbaum was awarded a residency at The American Academy in Rome. The works exhibited here grew out of the artist&rsquo;s experience in that city and in particular her fascination with the drapery and coloured fabrics depicted in Renaissance and Baroque paintings which she saw there. The series started out as a constantly changing studio installation with large squares of loosely draped fabric punctuated by hanging beads. The artist describes them as having an improvisational quality; like a musician improvising on a theme. Hence the title &ldquo;Colour Sessions.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&ldquo;I was thinking about the movement and order of thought, of colour and light, the angel in the Fra Angelico Annunciation in San Marco, drapery, the way that curtains conceal and reveal. My work is spatial but always related to painting. The Colour Sessions can be read as monochrome paintings, but they are fragile monochromes &ndash; paintings that are falling off the wall. I recently discovered that the sheen of the fabric is the result of weaving threads of two colours together in a very tight weave &ndash; it makes it difficult to locate the surface or pin down the color. So even the &lsquo;monochrome&rsquo; is actually two colors. The beads bring another spatiality into play, moving farther off the wall, into the space of the gallery.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As with most of Apfelbaum&rsquo;s work no two installations of this work are ever the same. They respond to the architecture of the space, keeping certain essential things consistent but introducing variations and change over time. In this regard, there will never be any definitive version; rather each interpretation is as important as any other, with the work always taking on a different meaning in a new context.</p> Mon, 20 Oct 2014 07:15:37 +0000 Laura Pawela - IMT Gallery - November 21st - November 23rd <p class="Body"><em>Fake Films and a Few Frames More </em>is an exhibition by the artist Laura Pawela of major video works never before seen in the UK.&nbsp; The exhibition will include important early works from <em>Untitled/Friedrich </em>(2008) and <em>Sugar </em>(2009); through to more recent works such as a new single-screen version of her powerful video installation <em>Songs of Insatiability </em>(2011); and <em>Past Present Continuous</em> (2010), a meditation on future of ruins of half-built follies in European cities exhibited as part of her solo exhibition at Propaganda Gallery, Warsaw.</p> <p class="Body"><span style="font-size: 12px;">Pawela recently exhibited in </span><em style="font-size: 12px;">You Cannot Step into the Same River Twice</em><span style="font-size: 12px;"> at the Pump House Gallery, Battersea, </span><em style="font-size: 12px;">Crimestory</em><span style="font-size: 12px;"> at the Centre of Contemporary Art, Toruń, and in Manchester Contemporary 2013.&nbsp; Last year she was awarded the prestigious Silesian Voivodeship Artistic Award for achievements in the field of the visual art.

His distinctive work can currently be seen all over streets of London. It features layers of intricate and flowing letterforms, shapes and line work, which are abstracted in a unique and aesthetically pleasing way. His style is full of funk and movement and fuses different skills together such as realism and graffiti letterforms. His work is open to individual interpretation and has been described as surrealist graffiti art for the soul.&nbsp;<br /><br />To appreciate the beautiful and fantastic world of Mr Cenz, the PURE EVIL GALLERY will present new work on canvas from the 16th to November the 9th , 2014 in The Department store , 96, 98 Leonard St, London UK.</p> Sat, 18 Oct 2014 15:02:25 +0000 Marcus Jansen - Lazarides Rathbone Place - October 24th - November 20th <p style="text-align: justify;">Whistleblower: <br />&ldquo;One who reveals something covert or who informs against another.&rdquo; <br />&ldquo;One who stops a current ongoing action.&rdquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />Lazarides is thrilled to present Whistleblower, the latest showcase of dynamic paintings and mixed-media landscape installations by New York born artist Marcus Jansen.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Over the last decade Jansen&rsquo;s subject matter continues to question a puzzling, fast moving world transformed through rich gestural paintings. The artist leads his audience on a journey across multiple views of abstract narrative scenes, combining action painting with objective subject matter while playing with space, light and perspective. The new series of complex constructions comment largely on socio-political issues of today, suggesting depth and movement within a flat plane using dramatic contrasts of colour, form, and texture.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jansen belongs to a new generation of artists exploring urban influenced forms of expressionism, constructing &nbsp;landscapes with an embedded connection between street art and contemporary art disciplines. Demonstrating a keen awareness of his surroundings the artist creates a surreal atmosphere filled with subconscious revelations that foretell of a future fraught with consequence. Violent brush strokes, changing textures, and distinctive contrast of colour reflect an explosive spontaneity that is the direct and raw effect of emotion. Jansen&rsquo;s intellectually provocative and paradoxical work encourages discourse among viewers, continuing his quest to dissect truth from fiction in a world with expanding questions and mystery. The themes that run through Jansen&rsquo;s work are vast in scope and indicative of his insightful ability to see the correlations that connect them, increasing surveillance, global dominance and genetically modified food are just a few. In his work lies a deeply rooted spirituality that becomes evident by his willingness to explore the unknown, bringing our attention to the things we would normally over-look while reminding us that within our struggle resides beauty.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Marcus Jansen</strong><br />A former soldier, Marcus Jansen started his career selling paintings on the streets of New York after previously studying graphics and commercial painting in Moenchengladbach Germany in the 1980&rsquo;s. Jansen&rsquo;s rise to artistic fame came after a chance meeting with former MOMA Travelling Exhibitions Director, Jerome A. Donson, responsible for preparing major exhibitions for the likes of Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg and Willem de Kooning, Donson referred to Jansen&rsquo;s work as being &ldquo;reminiscent of the Ash-Can School and the innovator of modern expressionism&rdquo;.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Since then Jansen has participated in various international museum exhibitions and bienniales, including winning the Laguna Art Prize 2013, Venice Italy, the 12th International Print &amp; Drawing Biennial in 2007 at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and The PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art in Russia, 2013. Besides his work being included in the U.S. Department of State and Art in Embassies program his museum collections span the United States, South America, Russia and Europe. Notable collections featuring Jansen&rsquo;s work include: Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA), Russia, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Museo Nacional de Bras&iacute;lia , Brazil, The National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, Taiwan and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The artist&rsquo;s work has been noted in publications such as: Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Art News, The New York Times, La Repubblica and the Boston Globe. His recent project &ldquo;The Art Album&rdquo; book released in New York City shows Jansen&rsquo;s work on the cover alongside other world recognized artists such as Takashi Murakami, Daniel Richter, Chuck Close, and Jonathan Meese. Upcoming solo museum exhibitions include the (MACRO) Museum&nbsp;of Contemporary Art, Rome in May/June 2015.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Jansen is a New York native currently working out of his studio in SW Florida.<br /></p> Fri, 17 Oct 2014 06:49:28 +0000 London Exhibitors - Frieze London - October 14th - October 18th Wed, 15 Oct 2014 20:03:19 +0000 Sarah Lucas - Frieze London - October 15th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Wed, 15 Oct 2014 19:54:05 +0000 Hannah Weinberger, Keren Cytter, Cally Spooner - Frieze London - October 15th - October 18th <p class="standfirst">Frieze Sounds is a program of sound works featuring three specially commissioned audio works by international artists.</p> <p>Frieze Sounds 2014 will be presented in the&nbsp;VIP&nbsp;cars at Frieze London.
