Much more interesting than the description of the  performance series, which will take place as part of Art Basel and is organized by star-curators Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist, is its call out for participants/performers to take part in it: “If you have an identical twin, use the opportunity to be part of Damien Hirst’s work. War veterans are sought after for part of Santiago Sierra’s performance, and anyone who speaks colloquial British-English and is similar in appearance to Ed...

Grumpy Sunday   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Roman Ondák at Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris / ARC September 28th, 2012 - December 16th, 2012
Posted 10/14/12
I was in a bad mood when I entered the Musée D'Art Moderne. It was ten o'clock on a Sunday morning, and I'd just paid six euros for a completely average coffee – with bad service – when my fatigue and the hour would've already been enough. Entering the Roman Ondák exhibition, I had the distinct feeling that this was not the time to look at art, and immediately my suspicions were confirmed. After climbing the stairs I was in a dim space with two video installations running and lots of glass... [more]
Out on a Wing, Still Alive   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Roman Ondák at KunstHall - Deutsche Bank April 26th, 2012 - June 18th, 2012
Posted 5/7/12
There is an unmistakable wit that permeates Czech and Slovak contemporary art. A signature. A serious but minimalistic gesture of tongue-in-cheek rooted in a drive to push irony and explore a hardened layer of underlying melancholy with a critical poignant eye. Roman Ondák is situated within this play. A recipient of this year's 2012 Deutsche Bank “Artist of the Year” award, Udo Kittelmann, member of Deutsche Bank’s Art Advisory council and the director of Berlin’s Nationalgalerie, praised the...

          Taking Place reintroduces the Stedelijk Museum by addressing its history, the spatial and temporal conditions of the unfinished building and the ways in which artists use, occupy and animate museum spaces.

The theme of the Walker Art Center’s exhibition “The Quick and the Dead” got personal, quickly, when I observed that an On Kawara date painting near the entry was the same date as an uncle’s birthday. Made by Kawara to mark the passage of time, the ongoing series implies its own end in the artist’s death, just as birthdays imply to many of us that there are only so many left. This exhibition announces its’ intentions to examine The Big Questions of Life at the outset in the title, but... [more]

One artist is featured, and then removed and replaced by another artist. Therefore, each few weeks, the exhibition is altered. Roman Ondák is the featured artist until June 28.
