Adriana Czernin: Ways of Seeing Abstraction – Works from the Deutsche Bank Collection

PalaisPopulaire, Berlin, 27.03.2021 – 05.02.2022

Adriana Czernin: Ways of Seeing Abstraction – Works from the Deutsche Bank Collection

Adriana Czernin, Ibn Tulun 98, 2018  

The PalaisPopulaire is showing current aspects of international abstract art in the “Ways of Seeing Abstraction” exhibition.

Since its revolutionary beginnings at the beginning of the 20th century, abstract art has repeatedly flourished, defying hostility and bans. Today, in particular, artists and museums are increasingly devoting themselves to this theme. The third show from the Deutsche Bank Collection at the PalaisPopulaire comprises over 200 works from 1959 to 2021. It encompasses not only drawings and photographs—s in the two previous exhibitions—but also, for the first time, significant paintings and prints. Like the Deutsche Bank Collection itself, “Ways of Seeing Abstraction” has a global scope featuring internationally renowned artists such as Gerhard Richter and Tadaaki Kuwayama, as well as a number of new discoveries and rediscoveries including Rana Begum, Jennie C. Jones, Kapwani Kiwanga, and Wilhelm Müller. 51 artists [...]

Christine und Irene Hohenbüchler: CARLONE CONTEMPORARY

Belvedere, Vienna, 18.03.–12.09.2021

Christine und Irene Hohenbüchler: CARLONE CONTEMPORARY

As part of the exhibition series CARLONE CONTEMPORARY, in spring 2021 the Belvedere will be presenting sculptural objects by Irene and Christine Hohenbüchler. These were included in a generous gift to the museum comprising works by these two Austrian artists. The sculptures are to enter into a dialogue with the Carlone Hall’s allegorical pictorial program and the history of the Baroque palace. 

Participation, grappling with social and political questions, opening up the creative process, and examining the idea of authorship are all characteristics of Christine and Irene Hohenbüchler’s oeuvre. This large group of works in this gift to the Belvedere includes early pieces from the 1990s, examples of multiple authorship that were often created in collaboration with people from socially marginalized groups. 

It is difficult to take in the wide variety of Christine and Irene Hohenbüchler’s work. It encompasses [...]

Hugo Canoilas: CARNIVALESCA WHAT PAINTING MIGHT BE

Kunstverein in Hamburg, 06.3. –02.05.2021

Hugo Canoilas: CARNIVALESCA WHAT PAINTING MIGHT BE

Hugo Canoilas, Gizmo, 2021, high fluid acrylic on wool, 230 x 230 cm

With the group exhibition CARNIVALESCA we want to create a dialogue with a traditional art form: painting. For this approach, we have looked to the meaning of carnival – a cultural phenomenon that has undergone innumerable syncretic cultural transforma- tions around the world, and which evokes exuberance, delight and even melancholy. The space of carnival is where hierarchies are brought into question and a plural set of positions are present, from this perspective, we propose that painting is not a neat nor ordered discourse: what constitutes such a “medium” or “discipline” in today’s non-disciplinary field of art is a Carnivalesque space. One where performativity, bodies, artist-subjects and their gestures, as well as their plural, global histories of signifi- cation, are formally equal. This is intended as a strategy to move beyond the ortho- doxies of Western art and its control over what painting is.

This exhibition [...]

Jun Yang: the Artist, his Collaborators, their Exhibition, and three Venues

curated by Barbara Steiner and Jun Yang

Jun Yang: the Artist, his Collaborators, their Exhibition, and three Venues

In 2019, Kunsthaus Graz presented the exhibition Jun Yang. The Artist, the Work, the Exhibition. This show can now be seen in an expanded form under the title The Artist, his Collaborators, their Exhibition, and three Venues in Taipei.

This joint exhibition by the artist Jun Yang is held in three different spaces simultaneously. The theme of Jun Yang in each of the three spaces serves to expose the differences among the three “institutions”, and in so doing opens up a new dialogue. Jun Yang is exhibited respectively in a commercial gallery, a university gallery and a public art museum; thus is transformed into a symbol, encouraging the audience to question the nature of the art institution itself. Under this shift of concepts, the shape of the [...]
