On the exhibition’s opening day (26.04), at 8 pm, Nevena Ekimova’s performance ‘Don’t Touch the Floor’, 2010, 2022 will take place.
‘As any game, this one, too, is a lot more fun when you don’t play alone.’ (N. E.)

Today, more than ever, we are challenged to support ideas and values, narratives and truths, multiple horizons of the future. Our support comes in more than just words, it comes in deeds. We physically stand for principles and by people as they form territories, lines and multitudes, boundaries and barricades, trenches and processions. Support is presence, a measurable distance, a physical and mental common ground, choice, and care.

The exhibition ‘As Long as You Stand by Me’ unfolds in the spirit of the present day and events. It is the first exhibition to take place in the gallery of RCCA ‘Toplocentrala’ and marks the beginning of the visual arts program at the center. Five [...]

Tania Pérez Córdova: Shifting the Silence

SFMOMA San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, USA, 09.04.—05.09.2022

Tania Pérez Córdova: Shifting the Silence

Tania Pérez Córdova, Images 4, 2017, glass from replaced museum window

Shifting the Silence features dynamic works by thirty-two women artists who use the radical language of abstraction to enhance our understanding of the world we inhabit. Named after artist Etel Adnan’s 2020 book about history and existence, Shifting the Silence embraces experimentation, impermanence, and subjectivity — bold yet poetic characteristics that mark the art of our time.

Featuring recently acquired works by Firelei Báez, Nairy Baghramian, Liz Hernández, Cinthia Marcelle, Tania Pérez Córdova, Lorna Simpson, and Haegue Yang, the exhibition harnesses their defiant, yet enlightened energy to explore visual culture, the motivations of its practitioners, and its varied influences. This experiential exhibition of art produced over the last quarter-century includes sculpture, photography, textile, video, painting, and time-based installation.

SPARK Art Fair 2022

25.03.–27.03.2022 / Booth G7

SPARK Art Fair 2022

Melanie Ebenhoch, After the Flash Light (Secret Beyond the Door), 2022, oil on aqua resin, Ø 110 cm

SPARK Art Fair 2022
Booth G7

Galerie Martin Janda is pleased to show a solo presentation of Melanie Ebenhoch at Spark Art Fair 2022.

Under the title Secret Beyond the Door Ebenhoch presents a new series of paintings. Their circular shape is reminiscent of a large hat. Starting with a series of smaller "traveling hats", Ebenhoch plays with this shape and the associations it triggers – hat, nipple, bosom, eye with pupil and iris, lens, doorknob, light switch – as well as symbolic encodings. In interplay with stylistic elements of illusionist painting, she uses signs of cinematic imagery to create irritating [...]

Hugo Canoilas: Sculptured in Darkness

This individual exhibition features an immersive and sensory installation that follows a research around the sea floor initiated by Hugo Canoilas in 2020.

The Centro de Arte Moderna invited Hugo Canoilas to create a project specifically for the temporary exhibitions gallery of the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum. This project continues the artist’s research, initiated in 2020, into life on the sea floor and ‘aquatic’ environments, proposing an immersive and sensory installation inhabited by creatures, painting-sculptures to which colour, texture, fluidity and an organic nature give an almost alchemical quality, as though they were in the midst of a metamorphosis right before our eyes.

The focus of the group exhibition is on aesthetic and fascinating aspects of the natural phenomena of ice and snow. Seven contemporary positions have been brought together regarding the theme.

The exhibition develops a thematic spectrum extending from the creation of a single, microscopically minute snow crystal past exploratory expeditions and the landscape of Romantic yearning all the way to the history of ice cream. Geographical points of reference include the Swiss Alps as well as the home region of the Sámi in northern Europe and in Greenland. Photography and drawing are represented in the exhibition along with installation and video. The aesthetic characteristics of natural phenomena [...]

Adrien Tirtiaux shows his ‘Project Box’ with all the material related to the epic work ‘Bruggen bouwen’ realised with Coup de Ville 2013.

A performative bridge connecting the art school of Sint-Niklaas, a building in early brutalist style, with a flat roof on the other side of the street. Starting from a classroom, the structure was built step by step according to “intuitive statics”.
