La substance, la structure humaine ne changent guère. Rien de plus stable que la courbe d’une cheville, la place d’un tendon, ou la forme d’un orteil. Mais il y a des époques où la chaussure déforme moins.
Marguerite Yourcenar


This exhibition is not meant to be didactic. By the same token, this text is not meant to be descriptive nor interpretative. It is far from being a piece of criticism or disciplinary speculation. A discipline, like an animal species, evolves through deterritorialization and reterritorialization. The only productive function that an art theory may claim is to act as a deterritorializing machine, using art as a pretext to talk about other things, to establish contact zones with other territories, to extend areas of influence, and to systematically cross over the boundaries of other disciplines in search for new operative forms to act. Not to believe in the efficiency of rites of exorcism through representation, but to make us see, by means more persuasive than those of sanitizing propaganda. For, as we’ve always known, common words and images cannot gauge with death.

The works in this exhibition, therefore, deny the prejudice that recent developments in the process and practice of photography have shrunk or narrowed the medium’s congenial universe. On the contrary, they have opened a regenerative space, into which artists have been looking at and suggesting reflective insights about the complexity of images and how they are conceived, produced and disseminated. This is precisely a reflection on how artists working with photography today respond to those issues that are specific to photographic processes, even if through other medium, from the stages of execution and production to those of reception and consumption.

In an age where culture is more voraciously consumed by a wider public than ever before, galleries and museums are no longer just repositories of works of art. They are sites of experience where the mind is often engaged as much as the eye. Such changes have gradually raised the museum visitor’s awareness that is the gaze and mind of the curator which shape the display of a collection, while allowing a new freedom for the viewer to select his or her own path through the history of art. Always bearing in mind that we look at the past through the framework of the present.

The viewer is thus invited not to analyze on the interpretation bias but to ponder on the contract that is always subsumed by each and every work, as well as on the relations between them, shaping the actual experience of the artwork. And what does this experience refers to? It is not directed towards subjectivity, but this does not mean that it aims at objectivity. On the one hand, things feel for us, they take up our place of feeling, but on the other hand we are also subject to a more radical and deeper process of reification than we’ve ever known in the past, for this time it touches our most immediate and intimate aspects of experience.

When the public asks the thinker to reveal the arcane of philosophical thought, they are not really asking to know a thinking subjectivity but to be shown a thing that feel, for they, the public, already perceive themselves as a feeling reduced to thing.

Las fotografías presentadas por Carlos Lobo en el desarrollo de esta exposición constituyen la primera presentación pública del proyecto Far Far East, resultado de un viaje deambulatorio por el sur de China y del reconocimiento visual de su paisaje urbano y natural. Esta serie muestra una clara línea de continuidad en relación a los trabajos anteriores de Carlos Lobo: la misma mirada retraída y en suspenso, en un movimiento de pura contemplación de lo anónimo y de lo banal, la misma intención de registro de intervalos temporales sin coordenadas, espacios de ausencia, entre las historias que nos cuentan los lugares. Todo el programa estético del artista viene sostenido, por lo tanto, en la ausencia de la dimensión iconográfica de la imagen, o sea, en la disolución del vínculo que une lo visible a lo legible y conforma la visión a las lógicas y codificaciones del logos; sus fotografías no están revestidas de segundos significados ni de ellas emergen historias codificadas o construyen universos simbólicos estables. En el momento en que las vemos, solamente vemos imágenes, más allá de su legibilidad y de lo que ellas designen o nombren, más allá de las posibles representaciones que podamos proyectar de las mismas. Este trabajo se hace más exigente cuanto más iconológico es el objeto y el mayor desafío de esta serie consiste precisamente en el hecho de la importación occidental de una idea de China en cuanto realidad occidental de una idea de China, en cuanto realidad geográfica y cultural, si se estructura, por un lado, sobre un código lineal de estereotipos civilizacionales, de identidad y visuales, construidos a partir de la promoción turística producida a efectos de exportación con objetivos comerciales y económicos y, por otro lado, sobre una retórica geopolítica reciente que la presenta como potencia emergente en proceso de modernización acelerada. La exploración visual realizada en el proyecto Far Far East evita este doble obstáculo centrando su mirada en fragmentos, tópicos, de la realidad que se muestran sin mostrarlos, que aparecen sin aparecer.
En esta serie, sin embargo, vemos algo que está normalmente ausente en el objetivo de la cámara de Carlos Lobo: personas que existen también en el espacio sin habitarlo, sin embargo. Se hace curioso señalar que, aquí, nunca vemos sus rostros; sus fotografías son captadas siempre de espaldas al fotógrafo, mirando en otra dirección, centrando su atención en elementos que están fuera del alcance del artista y son, por eso, inescrutables. Esta es la forma que Carlos Lobo tiene para decirnos que el mundo no se revela ni es revelable al completo, que lo aprehendemos a partir de ángulos estrechos y que podemos simplemente participar y proyectar la presencia íntima y cómplice de una mirada que se mueve, aunque sea momentáneamente, hacia el exterior de uno mismo, en otro tiempo y en otro lugar.

COMMA
A dynamic new series of monthly commissions

Dan Perjovschi and Jadranka Kosorcic
7 - 23 May 2009

Bloomberg SPACE
50 Finsbury Square,
London EC2A 1HD

http://www.bloombergspace.com

COMMA focuses entirely on the commissioning of new work providing exceptional opportunities for artists to experiment and expand their practice in relation to the particular nature of Bloomberg SPACE.

Twenty of today's most outstanding established and emerging international artists have been invited to create new work, installations and architectural interventions in a fast paced succession of exhibitions created in response to and seen for the first time at Bloomberg SPACE.

The new programme continues Bloomberg SPACE's reputation of presenting the unknown alongside the very well known drawing on a group of artists from across the globe. The programme spans a wide range of media – during the year painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, performance and film are all featured.

COMMA 05 Dan Perjovschi
For COMMA Dan Perjovschi has turned the front gallery at Bloomberg SPACE into a giant sketchbook, immersing viewers in a sea of information. Atypically Perjovschi has chosen to work only on the huge glass frontage of the gallery leaving the rest of the gallery as a blank page. The London headquarters of Bloomberg LP is distinctive both for its gallery's towering glass frontage and for Bloomberg's 24/7 news which is generated from within. Perjovschi has focused on both of these unique characteristics scaling up his portfolio of drawings that comment on current political, social and cultural issues and applying them on to both sides of the glass. The result is a direct interface between gallery and street that draws together viewers from both arenas.

Printed Matter, Inc. is pleased to announce a book signing for Mel Bochner's Solar Systems and Restrooms. The artist will be present to sign copies on Saturday, March 16th from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. Printed Matter is located at 195 10th Avenue (between 21 and 22nd Streets) in New York City.

A critic more by necessity than design, Mel Bochner started writing art reviews as a way to pay his rent.
Then in 1966, Bochner had a revelation about the possible reverberations of art writing across the divide between visual artists and writers. This moment launched a series of investigations into what Bochner identified as the "boundary between writing-as-criticism and writing-as-visual-art." In pieces such as "The Domain of the Great Bear", co-authored with Robert Smithson and "The Beach Boys–'100%'," Bochner created artwork camouflaged as magazine articles. Solar Systems and Restrooms reprints these works, along with the early reviews, and presents an insight into the development of a key conceptual artist's writing practice.
Reflecting the aesthetics of reproduction in Bochner's work, many pages in the book present the works in facsimile.

Containing more than fifty pieces, Solar Systems and Restrooms gathers together Bochner's various linguistic aims, including reviews, interviews, statements, notecards, and reflections on artists such as Barnett Newman, Donald Judd, and Dan Flavin. Solar Systems and Restrooms has recently been the focus of articles by Jeffrey Weiss in Artforum and by Barry Schwabsky in Art in America.

Since his seminal exhibition, "Working Drawings and Other Visible Things on Paper Not Necessarily Meant To Be Viewed As Art" in 1966, Bochner has exhibited extensively at museums and galleries worldwide.

X, a new not-for-profit arts initiative, opening March 7th, NYC

X is a not-for-profit organization that will exist for one year and present exhibitions and programming in four phases. X is an initiative of the global contemporary art community that will inspire and challenge us to think about our own possibilities during this unique and defining moment in our culture. X will be a site for dialogue, spontaneous experimentation and new ideas in this time of overwhelming change and transition. X is about looking forward and empowering the community to take action and to define this new age for ourselves and each other.

Phase one of X will include installations by artists of different generations:

On the ground floor, Mika Tajima will create an installation that is part film set, stage, greenroom and prop house. Titled The Extras, the installation will include 35 sculptures, a range of performances and two videos. On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors, X will present an extensive survey of the work of Derek Jarman, one of the most radical figures of British independent cinema. The exhibition will feature 18 super-8 mm films rarely seen in the US. On the roof, Christian Holstad's Light Chamber (Part Two), an installation modeled after gay leather sex clubs and high-end spas, features a useable tanning bed and an extreme sound component.

In addition to these three exhibitions, the renowned, site-specific light work untitled by Dan Flavin will be reinstalled in the stairwells of the building. Created in 1996, the work is on loan from Dia Art Foundation and will be on view for the duration of X.

Ray Johnson. Please Add to & Return

Raven Row

28 February to 10 May 2009

 

Raven Row's inaugural exhibition is the first large UK show of the collages and mailings of New York artist Ray Johnson (1927-1995). Johnson used radical means to construct and distribute images, inadvertently inventing the ‘mail art movement’. He made art out of social life – both real and imagined – gathering celebrities, the art world, and friends into his work. His influence on twentieth century art far exceeds the recognition he receives.

‘Ray Johnson. Please Add to & Return’ is significant in representing Johnson's mailings – objects he regarded as gifts and thus contrary to the market – equally with the collage works he made for gallery exhibition in the sixties and seventies. Also included are the collages he subjected to a seemingly endless process of reworking and overlaying that were found signed with multiple dates and neatly arranged in his house at the time of his death.

Raven Row is a new non-profit contemporary art exhibition centre at 56 Artillery Lane, Spitalfields, London. Constructed within two eighteenth century silk merchants' houses onto which 6a Architects have added two contemporary galleries, the art centre stands on a part of the street that was known as Raven Row until 1895, when it was absorbed into Artillery Lane.

Joel Singer; Sliced Light;
16mm transfered to DVD, bw, 15 min, 1976


Joel Singer is a New York / Bali based artist that for years collaborated with the experimental film legend James Broughton. His films are elegant poetic portraits of a mythological nature.


 In Sliced Light Joel Singer, through an exquisite camera technique, unleashes an aural light trapped between the frames of an impressionist landscape.

Opening Reception Nov 5, 6 - 8 pm
Closing Reception Nov 26, 6 - 8 pm

Christian Xatrec, on behalf of the Emily Harvey Foundation, gives carte blanche to Lisbon and Brooklyn based artist Joao Simoes. Fenced, by option, between blue-chip dates - opening the day after the Elections and closing the day before Thanksgiving - Simoes invites for his exhibition :

(as of today)

Stefan Tcherepnin to use the gallery as a collaboration space towards a new work and to perform with Sergei Tcherepnin, Amir Mogharabi, Richard Aldrich and Robert The; Alison Knowles to perform "Piece for Any Number of Vocalists"; Amy Granat and Emily Sundblad to screen the Lisbon films; Ana Cardoso and Jacob Kassay to install a painting; Ann Craven to screen Shadow; Yehuda Safran to talk about two particular images; David Reinfurt as guest editor of Simoes' view source project at www.00351.org; Rita Sobral Campos to stage a reading; International Pastimes, a project by Bosko Blagojevic and S.C. Squibb with guests Caridad Svich and Martin Puchner; Jeff Perkins to display his photos taken while driving with Guy de Cointet in his new car in the desert and encountering John Ford and John Wayne; Ricardo Valentim to lend his metronome from “Growth and Culture” lecture; Primary Information, an artist publications project by James Hoff and Miriam Katzeff; Taketo Shimada to perform and from the Emily Harvey Foundation Collection works by Jackson Mac Low and Eric Anderson.

Simoes will also preview his forthcoming work on video “During Rewind” (with SCREEN, a screensaver designed and programmed by O-R-G.com). “During Rewind” is the moment of rewinding blank dvcam tapes (12, 22, 32, 34, 40, 64, 94, 124, 184 minutes) creating a time structure for guests in the “play” moment. Previous works include European PAL video system works played in American NTSC video system players "rendering its final form blitzed and unintelligible" (Julian Myers, Frieze magazine), phosphor burn-in images and totally misplaced video and sound works.

A self publishing book (kindly supported by Direcção-Geral das Artes, Portugal) will arrive at the gallery during the exhibition via UPS featuring texts by Paulo José Miranda and Julian Myers on Simoes' work and will be launched at the closing reception, Nov 26th. 6 - 8 pm.

Jonathan Horowitz
Obama'08


Gavin Brown's enterprise

Installation view Obama '08, November 4, Gavin Brown's enterprise, New York, 2008
Courtesy the artist/Gavin Brown's enterprise

If you weren't in Times Square tonight, the only place to be was downtown in the West Village at Gavin Brown's enterprise gallery for an installation by Jonathan Horowitz, Obama '08.
Hundreds of artists, including Piotr Uklanski and Elizabeth Peyton along with collector Peter Brant, model Jessica Joffe and one of the Olsen twins crammed into a room surrounded by portraits of former Presidents lined up in chronological sequence. In the middle of the room hung two screens back to back; one showed Fox; the other showed CNN. CNN viewers sat on a blue carpet; Fox viewers on a red carpet.
When Obama's victory was formally declared Horowitz mounted Obamas's portrait on the wall next to George Bush's - some ugly facts even artists cannot alter - and the red, white and blue balloons tied above both screens came down.
It was time finally to breathe - and then scream.
It was the end of a day that had begun at 5am; I had been too anxious to sleep properly; Around 10 am I went to get my hair cut - and in the salon all any one could talk about - both clients and clientele - did you vote and did you vote today the right way?

That we are, in the end, good people. And now we have a leader who believes in our potential.

A KILLS B
YELLOW MONOCHROME

performance and installation project for
Now Jump, Nam June Paik Art Center, Seoul, South Korea
opening Oct 8th,
Oct 8 - Feb 2, 2009
extended

Hugo Canoilas and João Ferro Martins combined their practices in the collaborative project A Kills B developed since 2007. A Kills B engage in the notion of experimentation as an element of aimlessness, uncertainty and freedom. At present A Kills B have been experimenting with the idea of the monochrome and musical sound through performances combining painting and jam sessions that end in an expanded notion of the monochrome.

André Gonçalves e A Kills B na Coreia do Sul

Até 2 de Fevereiro, André Gonçalves tem a instalação “Resonant Objects” na exposição colectiva do festival “Now Jump!”, no Nam June Paik Centre em Seoul. Mas não é o único português a participar neste evento, também a dupla A Kills B (João Ferro Martins e Hugo Canoilas) apresentaram no início do festival uma das suas performances “Monochrome” – desta vez foram cerca de 40 m2 com bateria, baixo e guitarra que ficaram totalmente pintados de amarelo.

Gulbenkian Foundation and Maumaus are pleased to present e-flux video rental in Lisbon.


e-flux video rental (EVR) is a project by Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda, comprising a free video rental, a public screening room, and a film and video archive that is constantly growing. This collection of over 750 works of film and video art has been assembled in collaboration with more than 100 international artists, curators and critics.

Orignally presented at a storefront in New York, in 2004, EVR has traveled to venues in Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt, Seoul, Paris, Istanbul, Canary Islands, Austin, Budapest, Boston, Antwerp, Miami and Lyon. Following its stay in Portugal, the project will travel to Brasil and Argentina. After these final venues, having outlived the technology that made it possible (VHS video tape players), the project will be permanently archived with the Arab Image Foundation in Beirut and Moderna Galerija in Ljubljana, in 2009.


Dpois de Nova Iorque, Londres, Berlim, Amesterdão, Miami e Boston, foi inaugurado em Lisboa o projecto itinerante E-Flux Video Rental. Até 31 de Julho o foyer da Sede da Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian acolhe um extenso arquivo de vídeos realizados por alguns dos mais importantes artistas contemporâneos, que se encontra à disposição do público para aluguer domiciliário, gratuitamente, permitindo a todos os interessados a consulta e estudo destes registos. Paralelamente, está a decorrer um ciclo de conferências e mostra de vídeos que acompanha esta iniciativa:

Jürgen Bock, curador e director da Escola de Artes Visuais Maumaus, estará na Fundação Gulbenkian no dia 10 de Junho, às 18h, e no dia 24, à mesma hora, será Jean‐François Chougnet, director do Museu Colecção Berardo, a fazer uma apresentação.

A última conferência, dia 15 de Julho, será proferida por Miguel Wandschneider, programador e curador de Artes Visuais na Culturgest.

A edição portuguesa do E-Flux Video Rental resulta de uma colaboração da Fundação Gulbenkian com a Escola de Artes Visuais Maumaus

Edition of 25
E3 4RR print portfolio, 2007

Matt's Gallery

E3 4RR is the first ever print portfolio produced by Matt's Gallery. In a limited edition of 25, it brings together fifteen internationally acclaimed contemporary artists. It is presented in an A3 black buckram covered box with typography designed by Phil Baines. Each work is printed using archival ink and paper and interleaved in archival tissue. There are 17 proof copies for the artists, Matt's Gallery, London and Wimbledon College of Art.

E3 4RR has been put together by Robin Klassnik and employs the same philosophy as the gallery’s exhibition programme. The development of the portfolio has been an organic process with an emphasis on the dialogue between Klassnik and each of the artists when developing and selecting the work. This process has been essential in bringing together a body of work from fifteen very different artists.All prints have been specifically produced for E3 4RR and generously donated by the artists towards Matt's Gallery's ongoing fundraising initiative. The sale of the portfolio will help the gallery to continue to provide a platform for emerging and established artists to make innovative, challenging and ambitious works; commission new publications and publish a 30 year Matt's Gallery book; develop an extensive archive and enhance its role in education; and provide bursaries for internships enabling an active participation in nurturing the next generation of cultural leaders.

E3 4RR, is produced in association with BA Fine Art Print & Digital Media, Wimbledon College of Art, with paper sponsored by John Purcell Paper and framing by ARQADIA, A Larson-Juhl company. E3 4RR was originally conceived by Melanie Jackson in partnership with Robin Klassnik and has been co-ordinated by Clare Fitzpatrick.You can purchase the E3 4RR print portfolio for £4,000 plus VAT. The price of the edition will increase after 15 copies have been sold. E3 4RR can be purchased through the Own Art scheme, which offers interest free loans up to £2,000 (Typical 0% APR).

For further information or to purchase the portfolio directly from the gallery please contact Clare Fitzpatrick on 020 8983 1771 or email clare.fitzpatrick@mattsgallery.org please note Matt's Gallery is only able to accept online purchases from the UK.

 

 

MIGUEL BONNEVILLE #6
performance de Miguel Bonneville

QUINTA 19 / SEXTA 20 FEVEREIRO às 21h

EIRA 33
rua camilo castelo branco, 33 - 1º lisboa

Em MIGUEL BONNEVILLE #6 entro numa nova etapa do meu trabalho. Um trabalho com uma filosofia mais aprofundada sobre identidade. Sobre as questões de autoria, originalidade, solidão, identificação, narcisismo, autobiografia.
As autobiografias feitas por mulheres sempre foram, ao longo da história, vistas como incompletas, descontinuas, incoerentes, fragmentadas ou privadas. Vejo assim também o meu trabalho, pois sei que uma autobiografia coerente, continua e narrativa é uma impossibilidade. Será sempre incompleta, em continua transformação e regenerando-se.
