BOX Freiraum, 13.09.–02.12.2017
This exhibition shows the rich imagination that can be found across the European continent. Through the work of twelve artists, a variety of motifs and attitudes unfold. Instead of general statements about Europe, the viewer is offered differentiated and nuanced individual perspectives. Some of them are rooted in local histories, while others relate to the history of art, to nature, or to the search for the timeless. Together, the twelve participating artists offer a panorama of European imagination in times of migration, mobility, and political turbulence.
Throughout Europe a variety of languages, landscapes, and ways of living can be encountered against the background of a shared history and a common understanding of what is necessary for art to flourish. This coherent diversity is reflected through the attitudes and imaginations of the artists brought together in this show. The artists understand their work as being part of a global (art) society. And yet, local [...]
Galerie Frank Elbaz, 09.09.–28.10.2017
galerie frank elbaz, Dallas, is pleased to present Investigating the Limits of Painting. Curated by Dr. Ivana Bašičević Antić, the exhibition explores the work of Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos and Julije Knifer. Created in post-war Croatia, their art presents an attempt to resolve the problem of the ‘death of painting’ and could be described as a part of the neo-avant-garde and proto-conceptual practices in Europe. Julije Knifer dedicated his life and career to create “anti-painting”, reducing form down to its simplest iteration, and holding himself to a principle of repetition, while Dimitrije Bašičević Mangelos was negating art creating his “antipeinture” series, turning ready-made objects, like school tables or globes, into works of art. His approach was deeply rooted in philosophy and aimed to investigate the destiny of painting after the experience of wartime death [...]

Le Corbusier’s Fourth Dimension shows the free visual practice of the world renowned architect Le Corbusier, with drawings, paintings, tapestries and objects.. The Danish artist Jakob Kolding engages in the exhibition and mediates between Le Corbusier, CoBrA and the public.
Le Corbusier’s fourth dimension is an exhibition of the visual art practice of world-famous architect Le Corbusier. The exhibition contains drawings, paintings, sculptures and tapestries, some of which have never been shown before. The title is derived from a quote by Le Corbusier, where he compared his artistic process with a journey into a “miraculous fourth dimension”. The title also indicates a world beyond the established image of this influential and controversial architect and city builder, because although Le Corbusier’s architecture is usually seen as the very essence of rationalism and functionalism, it is apparent from his [...]

The Arts Club of Chicago, 12.09.–09.12.2017
To celebrate the centennial of Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain, The Arts Club of Chicago welcomes an exhibition by acclaimed Slovak artist Roman Ondak. Known for a conceptual oeuvre that draws on both participatory and object-based processes, Ondak interrogates the peculiarities of daily life in a post-Soviet and increasingly global context. For The Arts Club, Ondak gathers four sculptural installations that have never been shown in the United States along with an ongoing series of paintings begun in the 1990s, most of which were produced expressly for this exhibition. Taken as an ensemble, this work deploys found materials to reflect on aspects of memory and place–indicating Ondak’s rather ambivalent stance toward the legacy of the readymade.
The visual and conceptual centerpiece of the exhibition is Escape Circuit, 2014, an arrangement of 42 colorful, wooden and metal cages placed in a rough circle with interlocking [...]
