Shows & Exhibitions

This September, Pangolin London will open a group exhibition curated by artist and magazine editor Marcus Harvey. ‘Two and a half dimensions’ is a phrase Harvey employs to describe the ‘gateway’ from wall based painting to sculpture. The exhibition brings together paintings whose preoccupation is with three dimensionality in its most direct sense and floor-based sculpture that reflects the painterly and imagistic.

The end of transparency in art plays a great role in Mircea Cantor's work. Forming a mysterious body of work with many offshoots, Cantor's creations are a plea in favor of the "need for uncertainty," as the artist puts it. His art runs counter to the current overriding need to know and predict everything.

David Kordansky Gallery announces The Little Girl's Room, an exhibition of new work by Richard Jackson. His first solo gallery exhibition in Los Angeles in 20 years, the show is a significant milestone for an artist whose work has continually expanded and redefined the physical and conceptual reach of painting since the 1970s.

The whole of all the parts as well as the parts of all the parts features multiple video works in a performative installation by Los Angeles-based artist Frances Stark. The exhibition explores the space between text, drawing, PowerPoint, musical score, film, random video chats, animation, installation, and live performance in an eight-part video installation that unfolds one part at a time.

Galerie Conrad presents the solo exhibition The Angel´s Black Leg by Mounir Fatmi, one of the most internationally renowned artists from the Arab world, as part of Düsseldorf Cologne Open 2011. In his installations, videos and objects, Mounir Fatmi comments upon and contextualises western as well as oriental cultural practice and art tradition, politics and religion.

Utopias and dystopias are the themes of the current Brave New Worlds exhibition at the Riverside Gallery in Richmond. Encompassing a wide range of media such as painting, drawing, photomontage, fused and painted glass, digital art and sculpture; Brave New Worlds brings together a collection of 25 works by local and national artists selected via open submission from over 500 individual works.

“Orchestra” rings out under the direction of the artist Xavier Veilhan as a polyphony of objects, renewing the perception of space in the Galerie Perrotin in Paris. The event marks a turning point through works that, for the most part, have never been seen before. At the same time, it initiates an introspective turn in the artist’s modus operandi. The new shapes displayed are not a negation of previous works, but rather inscribed in their continuity.

Beauty Contest deals with one of the most trivial everyday experiences: the daily encounter with human beauty and its social construction. A perennial anthropologic subject dating back to the writings of ancient Greek philosophers, the exhibition will present critical viewpoints of some of the most antiquated notions of universal beauty. Evidence from the sexual revolution and feminism, as well as the gay, lesbian and transgender movements have eroded clear definitions of who and what is beautiful—and who and what is not.

Laurent Delaye Gallery presents an exciting new series of work by Steven Geddes, who started his life as an artist in 2004, in his mid thirties, after a successful career as a fashion designer. It was his encounter with the ceramicist Colin Pearson and the Pearson family that suddenly gave him the desire and opportunity to work with porcelain.

This is an exhibition about shattered illusions and defective mentalities continuously perpetuated in Romania. It is about "Ceausescu" type of attitude within the communist era as well as its present times pernicious sequels. About Communism in Postcommunism.
