“Autodisporsi”, which literally means “self dispose”, is the subtitle of this exhibition and a famous work by Alighiero Boetti. As the subtitle suggests, the selection has been made by the artworks themselves, as these pieces have proven their capacity to “autodisporsi”, self-dispose and find a rational placement in the structure of the exhibition thus making it possible. Due to their strong impact, these art pieces are able to attract the viewer’s attention and connect with her/him creating a personal relationship. This approach offers the possibility to discover a different way to enjoy contemporary art leaving aside the daily rush of life. The visitor should allow himself to travel through this visual experience without any preconceived ideas and compare his own [...]
"Serralves Collection: 1960-1980” marks the visible and permanent presence of the Serralves Collection in the Serralves Museum as part of a dynamic programme of changing displays. The inaugural display presents works by Portuguese and international artists. This narrative presentation surveys the art produced in the decades considered foundational to the history and development of contemporary art and the place of Portuguese art in that history. As well as iconic art works made between 1960 and 1980, the new displays also include a selection of more contemporary pieces that highlight the continued relevance of these earlier artistic positions and attitudes.
The works on view reflect a diversity of artistic production from the 1960s to the present day, while highlighting the unique characteristics of the Serralves Collection, distinguished for its relation of Portuguese and international art from around the globe. With a visually dynamic and rich presentation of paintings, [...]
Freight+Volume is presenting The Secret Life of Plants, a summer group exhibition co-curated by Jennifer Coates and Nick Lawrence. The works in this exhibition explore the relationship between plants, humans, and the psychology behind their interactions.
The Secret Life of Plants was a book published in 1973 that explored plant sentience and the “physical, emotional and spiritual relations between plants and man.” The book begins with the story of a houseplant in the office of a polygraph expert – he hooks the plant up to a lie detector and determines that the plant registers measurable reactions when he intends to harm it. Through years of experiments, he believes he has discovered that plants can read their caretakers’ minds, even from hundreds of miles away.
This was later considered New Age magical thinking, however, plants and animals have a complex symbiotic relationship that extends far beyond them supplying us [...]

From July 15 until September 17, 2017, Kunstverein München presents A rock that keeps tigers away, an exhibition featuring new and recent works by Beth Collar, Tania Pérez Córdova, Jason Dodge, Laura Kaminskaite, Simon Dybbroe Møller, Francesco Pedragio, Adrien Tirtiaux, Freek Wambacq, and Herwig Weiser. Together, their works contest common notions of cause and effect by considering the inextricable relation between causation and correlation. The project will consist of an exhibition spanning the Kunstverein’s three main exhibition rooms, foyer, and Kino, along with a special program of screenings, performances, and lectures, and a new publication (co-produced with Roma Publications, Amsterdam).
Homer: Not a bear in sight. The Bear Patrol must be working like a charm.
Lisa: That’s specious reasoning, Dad.
Homer: Thank you, dear.
Lisa: By your logic I could claim that this rock keeps tigers away.
