This year\, in Fine Art\, rath er than transporting the work into the gallery spaces in Kensington for two weeks\, students will show their work over a weekend\, within their studio s\, workshops and seminar rooms &ndash\; within the spaces in which their w ork has been made and debated. \;

The shift in staging is pr oposed to help students better to understand and articulate the point at wh ich artworks become public\, encouraging the idea that the artwork is in so me way public even before it is made and remains in production long after i t is exhibited. The open house setting will challenges preconceptions about how an artwork might go out into and circulate in the outside world. \ ;

\n

Visitors to the Work-in-progress Sh ows will have the opportunity to see the students&rsquo\; work at a range o f stages of development\, and to gain a better understanding of the process es our students employ and the spaces in which they make.

Iniva is delighted to present two solo exhibitions of se lected work by Swedish artist Lina Selander and Ko rean artist and film-maker Park Chan-kyong\, juxtaposed for the fi rst time\, from 14 January to 21 March 2015\, at R ivington Place. \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \; &nb sp\;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \ ;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \; & nbsp\;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \; &nbs p\;  \;  \;  \;

\n

The exhib ition is curated by Binna Choi and Lisa Rosendahl< /strong>\, initiators along with Grant Watson of P ractice International\, an EU-Culture-funded rese arch project exploring what internationalism might be\, based on practices of trans-national ethics and politics and the legacy of various colonial pe riods in the context of contemporary art. The exhibition is the second publ ic showing of work presented by Iniva as part of this project.

\n

Park Chan-kyong and Lina Selander will show work through two solo present ations alongside each other\, bringing together synergies within the artist s&rsquo\; practices. Both artists move between documentary forms and the st ructure of the visual essay as a way to investigate the construction of col lective imaginations. In recent works they have explored different manifest ations of the utopian aspirations of modernity\, political trauma and the r ole that image-making and the media of film and photography have played in the development of modern society through presentation\, depictions\, visua l control and surveillance.

Park Chan -kyong Pa-Gyong - Last Sutra Recitation \;curated by Binna Choi

\n

This first solo pr esentation of works by South Korean artist Park Chan-kyong present s a series of his latest film and documentary works that offers a new persp ective on folk religious practices such as shamanism and utopian religious communities\, from the period of colonisation and the cold war to the prese nt time.

 \;Lina Selander Open System &ndash\; \; &lsquo\;Silphium and Othe r Works&rsquo\; \;curated by Lisa Rosendahl

\n

&ldquo\;I am never sure wheth er I invent or dream. Rebuilding\, excavating the inaccessible chamber from which the desired images will appear\, but different.&rdquo\; Extract from Silphium\, Lina Selander\, 2014.

\n

This exhibition comprises three recent films by Selander together with a selection of materials from the artist&rsquo\;s working ar chive. Characteristic of Selander&rsquo\;s work is the use of film to build dense layers of images and meaning\, through which contemporary society is connected with history and the pre-historic. At the core of her enquiry li es a continuous questioning of the concept and materiality of the image. Se lander&rsquo\;s work repeatedly asks us to reconsider the status of the ima ge &ndash\; as representation\, memory\, object\, imprint or surface &ndash \; and our relationship to it.  \;  \;  \;  \;  \; &nbs p\;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;  \;

\n

Silphium (made with Oscar Mangione\, 2014) begins by telling the story of the ancient plant Silphium and the connection between the fate of the now extinct plant and the Greek colony Cyrene. The story se rves as an entry point into an open-ended visual journey. In the film\, met hods of power and their symbolic representation are put into question throu gh moments of vulnerability and the loss of visual control.

\n

Model of Continuation (201 3) is based on the invisible core of the visible inscription\; the image as an interior object and its relationship to seeing and reproduction technol ogies. A camera is disassembled in a studio in front of another camera whos e images are then projected in the same studio\, and re-filmed. The film st ages a circular encounter between experience and technology\, which interfe res with that which the camera does not contain: the images.

\n

Anteroom of the Real (201 1) takes its starting point in the deserted town of Pripyat\, located withi n the zone of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. A pair of hands flip slowly t hrough a pile of photographs comprising: images of a model of reactor 4\, b uildings in Pripyat\, books in deserted offices\, trashed interiors\, pictu res of a TV monitor showing a documentary about Chernobyl. As the timelines of the still and moving images intersect\, the film raises questions about what an editing room is and can be\, and about narrativity\, time and imag es.

Timothy Taylor Gallery is proud to be introducing 2015 with a solo presentation of Serge Poliakoff&rsquo\;s paintings &ndash\; the firs t of it&rsquo\;s kind in the UK since his 1963 retrospective at the Whitech apel Gallery.

\n

Important late works are juxtaposed with a small sele ction of works from 1950 and 1951\, in order to illustrate the circular nat ure of Poliakoff&rsquo\;s practice. By pairing certain works together what becomes apparent is a distinct return to form. Poliakoff made a decisive de parture into pure abstraction following a period of study in London in the mid-1930s. From 1950\, his paintings explored simple forms\, floating in ha rmonious compositions and made from pure colour\, which the artist returned to and explored further at the very end of his career. These latter painti ngs\, often referred to as &lsquo\;silent paintings&rsquo\;\, exemplify a l anguage of abstraction in which colour is paramount. Speaking of these work s\, Poliakoff stated: &ldquo\;It is not necessary to explain these painting s\, nor to write about them &ndash\; it is right to remain silent\, your wo rks should speak for themselves&rdquo\;.

\n

Serge Poliakoff is conside red one of the most important members of the School of Paris. Having fled t he Russian Revolution in 1917\, Poliakoff first travelled to Constantinople before arriving in Paris in 1923\, where he spent most of his life. He beg an studying painting while earning a living as a musician\, enrolling at th e Acadé\;mie Forchot and Acadé\;mie de la Grande Chaumiè\ ;re in Paris 1929. Poliakoff studied at the Slade School of Art after reloc ating to London in 1935\, and it was here that the artist discovered abstra ct painting\, as well as the importance of layering colour.

\n

The exh ibition is accompanied by a new fully illustrated catalogue\, including a t ext by the artist&rsquo\;s granddaughter\, Marie Victoire Poliakoff.

\n< p>Poliakoff exhibited extensively throughout his life\, and has continued t o do so posthumously. His work is included in numerous important public col lections internationally. In 2013 the Musee d&rsquo\;art Moderne in Paris o rganised a large-scale survey of the artist&rsquo\;s work\, in recognition of the artist&rsquo\;s importance within the school of Post-War European Ab straction\, as well as to acknowledge his lasting influence.

\n

Serge Poliakoff was born in Moscow in 1903. He died in Paris in 1969.

&ldquo\;Gen ius lands where genius will\, and I&rsquo\;m pretty sure some alighted on B ill Lynch&rdquo\;

\n

- Roberta Smith\, The New York Times\, 2014

\n

The Approach is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by the late Ameri can painter Bill Lynch organised in collaboration with Verne Dawson and Whi te Columns\, New York. Following on from a successful introduction to a wid er audience in New York in 2014\, this will be the first time these paintin gs are shown outside of America.

\n

Pain ting primarily onto salvaged plywood sheets\, leaving areas raw and exposed \, Lynch depicted landscapes and wildlife\, cultural artefacts and mythical symbols with instinctive and direct brushstrokes and a psychological conne ction to his subject matter. Lynch&rsquo\;s vested interest in Chinese pain ting is apparent in his confident gestures\, combining a dry lambent brush and thick pasty paint. Making use of irregularities such as the knots and g rain in the wooden support\, Lynch merged the material of the surfaces with images  \;creating an ambiguity between the physicality of the ground and his luscious pictorial visions. \;

\n

Bill Lynch\, 1960-2013\, was born in New Mexico and grew up in New Je rsey. He studied art at Cooper Union together with his friend Verne Dawson\ , who also organized the posthumous exhibition of his work at White Columns \, New York in the autumn of 2014. Lynch lived in New York\, California and North Carolina. He suffered from schizophrenia for many years but died of cancer at the age of 53. Lynch made work over three decades\, but was not p resented in a formal solo exhibition during his lifetime. The exhibition at White Columns was reviewed in Artforum\, The New Yorker and by Roberta Smi th in The New York Times.

Bartha Contemporary is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent paintings by the Scottish artist Alan Johnston. Please join us for the private view on Thursday November 28th fro m 6.30 &ndash\; 8.30 PM. The presentation\, which coincides with the comple tion of the artist&rsquo\;s ceiling drawing entitled &lsquo\;Tactile Geomet ry&rsquo\; at Tate Britain\, continues until February 4th 2014. \;

Looking back at on a career spanning 40 years the exhibition at Bart ha Contemporary features a series of paintings revisiting some of the centr al themes that have determined the artist work over the past decade. Painte d on canvas or wood supports these paintings explore an illusionary space\, their seductive often highly tactile surface enhances the experience. Pain ted on un-primed supports\, fields of dark charcoal or pencil-drawn areas o n modulated titanium or zinc white acrylic fields respond to each other to create a delicate interplay of opposing forces. The hard-edged nature of th e composition is softened by an almost organic hand-made appearance and the raw untreated supports. \;

Alan Johnston is one of the lead ing British geometric abstract artists of our generation\, known for his la rge-scale architectural interventions and collaborations with architects su ch as Diener &\; Diener in Basel or Shinichi Ogawa in Japan his numerous wall-drawings have led to the recent commission of a large ceiling drawing as part of the recently re-opened Millbank Spaces at Tate Britain. Edwin H eathcote of the FT commented: &ldquo\;A new vaulted ceiling has been create d here and decorated with infinite care by artist Alan Johnston\, whose del icate pencil work carefully articulates the individual vaulted segments.&rd quo\; \;
