Generalization is the first survey of artist Tania Pérez Córdova (b. 1979, Mexico City) in a United States institution, featuring a selection of twenty-four works made over the past ten years, as well as objects specially commissioned for this occasion. The exhibition presents a reading of Pérez Córdova’s work through issues that her artistic endeavors have sought to address: the passage of time, the nature of materials, the gaze of the other, the imminence or possibility of an action, the way in which we assign value to objects, negative space, and more recently, the insufficiency of discourse. Generalization is the artist’s most significant and comprehensive exhibition in the U.S. to date, providing audiences with a first opportunity to survey the breadth and depth of the last decade of Pérez Córdova’s idiosyncratic and innovative works across media.

Jan Merta: Lidová škola umění – Jan Merta and with him Jasanský – Polák

Jan Merta, How Many Minutes Of Silence, 2021–2022

The city of Ústí nad Labem is often viewed as having no significant influence on the development of contemporary art, but, closer examination many interesting connections that, at the very least, challenge this notion. Jan Merta, one of the key figures of contemporary Czech painting, was born in 1952, and his story illustrates how, both in the past and present, this city situated on the cultural periphery has provided important impulses for the artistic growth of undeniably creative personalities and has thus helped shape the greater art scene in general. The exhibition Lidová škola umění, which is being hosted by the Ústí nad Labem House of Arts, is based on memories from the artist’s adolescence, a period of time spanning from 1966 to 1972, during which he lived in the city, as well as from frequent visits with his parents, who lived here too until 1989, as Jan’s father, Hynek Merta, was as a pastor in [...]

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck: Petromelancholia

BRUTUS Rotterdam, Rotterdam, Netherlands, 02.09.–19.11.2023

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck: Petromelancholia

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Last barrel of oil, date postponed, sustainable wood paper, ink, financial markets

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck participates in the exhibition "Petromelancholia", at BRUTUS in Rotterdam. The thematic shown brings together 32 contemporary artists of different cultural backgrounds and generations.

The activity of Balteo-Yazbeck (Caracas 1972) is directly related to Venezuelan socio-political history in the global context of extractivism, specifically oil.

According to historian Sean Nesselrode Moncada: The ability of oil to serve as a connective tissue between business investment, government policy, military campaigns and artistic patronage forms the basis of much of the conceptual practice of this artist. In his readymade-performance piece, entitled "last barrel of oil, date postponed" made of sustainable wood, paper, ink, printed paper, financial markets and sales protocol, Balteo-Yazbeck prices a 3.5 centimeter miniature (multiple) piece to the fluctuating future value of oil on the New York [...]
