Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Svenja Deininger, Július Koller, Roman Ondak, Gabriel Sierra, Mladen Stilinović: There will never be a door. You are inside. Works from the Coleção Teixeira de Freitas

Július Koller, Šikmé horizontály, 1966

Taking its title from the first verse of the poem Labyrinth by Jorge Luis Borges, this exhibition brings together installations, drawings, sculptures, paintings, videos and books by artists belonging to the international collection of contemporary art of Luiz Augusto Teixeira de Freitas.

In order to reflect the wide variety of meanings that an art collection can achieve, the exhibition is organized as a labyrinth: it has neither a beginning nor an end, no specific theme, it is not centered in any territory, time or belief. And, nevertheless, the options that are posed are endless: dialogues are established, encounters are generated, previous assumptions are deconstructed and innumerable possibilities unfold.

The group show includes works by: Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Svenja Deininger, Július Koller, Roman Ondak, Gabriel Sierra, Mladen Stilinović ⠀

Among the other selected artists are: Cildo Meireles, Dahn Vo, Damian Ortega, Gordon [...]

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck: Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber

Sharjah Art Foundation, 07.03.–10.06.2019

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck: Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Warping the White Cube, 2018. Concept drawing for an architectural intervention. All the Lands from Sunrise to Sunset.

Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber will explore the possibilities for creating art when material culture is under constant threat of human destruction and climate degradation, offering artists from the UAE and around the world an internationally recognised platform for exhibition and experimentation.

The biennial will include three distinct exhibitions organised by each of the three curators, presenting works by contemporary artists to explore the ways in which contemporary life, enabled by rapid technological change, has created a seemingly inescapable “echo chamber” of information, complex personal networks and shifting narratives that are physical, spiritual and virtual. Presenting new commissions, large-scale installations and films, the biennial will be on view in SAF buildings and courtyards, as well as other locations in Sharjah.

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck is part of the group exhibition Making New Time, [...]

ARCO Madrid

Galerie Martin Janda is showing works by Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck and Tania Pérez Córdova in the Dialogues section at ARCO Madrid 2019, curated by Agustín Pérez Rubio and Catalina Lozano.

Find us at booth Booth 9A06 in Hall 9!

Both artists broadly look at the dynamics of appropriation, the development of the past and image realities. From two different and individual perspectives they explore scrambled and distorted representations of the familiar and the commonplace.

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck examines the chaos of his home country Venezuela, probing the problematical historical narratives that bring us to our present. He frequently engages in a research-based practice that confronts cultural, [...]

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Tania Pérez Córdova: Portadores de sentido

Museo Amparo, Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, 09.02.–22.07.2019

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Tania Pérez Córdova: Portadores de sentido

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Last oil barrel, (date postponed)

Portadores de sentido presents a broad range of contemporary art by artists from Latin America and the Caribbean from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC). The work in the exhibition is informed by artistic research that elicits narratives, resources and associations with a number of disciplines. With those disciplines in mind, the exhibition has been organized into four groupings, each one of which borrows methodology or derives inspiration from areas of inquiry beyond aesthetics.

The first grouping, Insertions, concerns ethnography and its theories; the second, Excursions, is an analysis of geography; the third, Concrete Environments, considers the implications of urbanism; and the final group, Mediations, addresses media and mass communication. The exhibition emphasizes the artists’ analytical and sensitive responses to a given environment, and how artworks are experienced [...]

Bringing together 17 artists and collectives from the region and beyond, Crude explores oil as an agent of social, cultural and economic transformation across the Middle East and North Africa, as well as a driver of geo-political upheaval. Oil has been a trigger for misguided colonial adventures, wars and coups; a catalyst for nation building, modernisation and development; and a cause of terrible ecological disasters. Oil, and its attendant industries and economies, has produced a spectrum of representations—architectures and infrastructures, documents and records, plans and photographs, and image and artifacts—that bring alive these complex histories. Much of the historical material lies buried in various national, corporate and media archives.

This exhibition features the works of contemporary artists that engage with the oil industry’s murky archives and histories, narrating an alternate and episodic material history of modernity in [...]
