Nilbar Güreş: APPLAUSE

Nilbar Güreş, Hidden Rabbit Girl Online, 2021

Nilbar Güreş's exhibition at Hamidrasha Gallery includes photographs, paintings, textile works, sculptures and a video. It continues her long-term involvement with issues such as social injustice, gender roles, queer culture and cultural identity codes.

Güreş uses cultural symbols, local crafts and traditional customs (like pieces of her dowry chest) and changes their connotation, their context and their environment. She confronts them with queer symbols and language. Through these acts, she challenges gender roles and cultural conventions in a traditional society.

With a lot of humor and in witty figurations, Güreş uses elements such as coconuts and bananas to gender-reassigned sex organs and to present the nonbinary or trans body. In her paintings and photographs flora, fauna, and humans engage in a playful, and even humorous, game of blurring genders [...]

Yu Ji: 2021 TRIENNIAL: SOFT WATER HARD STONE

Soft Water Hard Stone, the fifth New Museum Triennial, brings together works across mediums by forty artists and collectives from around the world.

The title of the 2021 Triennial, Soft Water Hard Stone, is taken from a Brazilian proverb, versions of which are found across cultures:
Água mole em pedra dura, tanto bate até que fura (Soft water on hard stone hits until it bores a hole).

The proverb can be said to have two meanings: if one persists long enough, the desired effect can eventually be achieved; and time can destroy even the most perceptibly solid materials. The title speaks to ideas of resilience and perseverance, and the impact that an insistent yet discrete gesture can have in time. It also provides a metaphor for resistance, as water—a constantly flowing and transient material—is capable of eventually dissolving stone—a substance associated with permanence, but also composed of tiny particles [...]

Oft haben Meisterwerke des Kinos Künstler_innen beeinflusst und manchmal zu Kunstwerken inspiriert. Die Ausstellung Film as Muse geht dieser Beziehung nach und präsentiert Film, Video, Fotografie, Skulptur, Malerei, Kunstinstallationen und ein Online-Programm. Ergebnis dieses Forschungsprojekts ist die Präsentation von Kunstwerken fünfzehn internationaler Künstler_innen, die jeweils einen besonderen oder kuriosen Bezug zu bestimmten Filmen haben. Ähnlich wie bei The People’s Cinema (Salzburger Kunstverein, 2016) reflektiert Film as Muse über kreative und obsessive Beziehungen zwischen dem Kino und zeitgenössischer bildender Kunst in unterschiedlichen Erscheinungsformen. Die Ausstellung versteht sich als ein Schritt zur Erforschung und Präsentation zeitgenössischer Kunst und als Auseinandersetzung mit dem
Kino als Muse.

Künstler_innen: Joseph Beuys, Johanna Billing, Monica Bonvicini [...]

GAMeC presents Nothing is Lost. Art and Matter in Transformation, curated by Anna Daneri and Lorenzo Giusti. The show is the second chapter in the Trilogy of Matter, a long-term exhibition project begun in October 2018 with the exhibition Black Hole. Art and Materiality from Informal to Invisible.

The project involves art historians, curators, philosophers, and scientists, and addresses a transversal debate around the theme of matter, while at the same time activating a dialogue with the history of scientific discoveries and drawing a comparison with the development of aesthetic theories. The program foresees a cycle of three exhibitions, accompanied by as many publications, featuring the presence of artists and works of various generations.

After the first appointment in the cycle—dedicated to the essence of matter, to all its depth, in dialogue with the theories of modern physics—the second exhibition [...]
