Shows & Exhibitions

KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art is showing the new series "Berlin Fassaden" by the sculptor Asta Gröting. The point of departure for the sculptures in "Berlin Fassaden" is stories that are inscribed in the walls of buildings in Berlin—facades that still contain traces of the war in the form of bullet holes. Asta Gröting replicates the damaged walls in sculpture by making silicone impressions of them.

Sonic Rebellion: Music as Resistance is inspired by the vital history of music in Detroit and the legacy of the 1967 Detroit Rebellion. The show connects these historic events to more recent social movements, from Occupy to Black Lives Matter, illustrating threads between past protests and the unresolved racial politics in the United States today. One major such thread is the role of music as a catalyst for social change and empowerment.

European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017 presents a world premier of the new audio-visual installation by Mikhail Karikis: The Chalk Factory. Karikis’s practice embraces moving image, sound, performance, and other media, and emerges from his long-standing investigation of the voice as a political agent. He often collaborates with communities to orchestrate performances to camera in order to highlight alternative modes of human action and existence.

To mark the 150th birthday of the famous Ballets Russes stage-designer, the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco presents Designing Dreams, A Celebration of Leon Bakst, an exhibition running from October 23, 2016 to January 15, 2017 at the Villa Sauber. Leon Bakst (b. 1866 in Grodno, present day Belarus–d. 1924 in Paris) is primarily celebrated for the sets and costumes he designed for the Ballets Russes company

HOME Manchester announces the major new exhibition of all new work by Rachel Maclean. Curated by Bren O’Callaghan and Sarah Perks, Wot u :-) about? plays out across film, sculpture and print, in the Scottish artist’s largest solo exhibition to date.

Zilberman Gallery-Berlin announces the opening of the exhibition The Red Gaze. It presents a constellation of objects in four chapters—paintings, drawings, poems, sculptures, videos, soundtracks, performances, discussions—on the theme of "the witness," more specifically, the "artist as eye-witness" in times of duress and war. It will be accompanied by a catalog.

Infinity Poison, a solo exhibition by Derek Mainella,is the inaugural show of Castor Projects, a new fine art space in New Cross. It also marks Mainella’s first solo exhibition in London, where he currently resides, and his second solo show in the UK. The exhibition forms a gesamtkunstwerk, in which Mainella’s usual painting practice takes a more passive role as co-spectator in an environment that addresses issues of consumption, food production and waste through superficial mimesis.

Edouard Malingue Gallery presents Panoramix, the first solo exhibition in Hong Kong of the Indonesian collective Tromarama. Established in 2006 in Bandung, Indonesia, and comprised of artists Febie Babyrose, Ruddy Hatumena and Herbert Hans, Tromarama have been developing inventive responses to contemporary urban culture spanning multiple media. 

Selected Works: Raha Raissnia is an exhibition of Raissnia's dense explorations of light which manifest as works on paper, paintings and film installations. Described as a "night-painter," one that Milton Cruz situates as having a habit of "starting from the other side of things," Raissnia's works emerge from stillness, silence and darkness whilst operating at the fleeting moment of being half-awake, as light flutters between the hallucinatory state that is difficult to wrap around consciousness

PLATEAU, Samsung Museum of Art presents The Promise of If, a solo exhibition by Minouk Lim. Since making a breakthrough onto the Korean contemporary art scene with her collective practice in the late 1990s, Lim has formed a singular artistic vision that encompasses a broad range of works including installation, video, and performance in addition to numerous publication and educational projects.
