Cinematic masterpieces often impact artists, sometimes even inspiring artworks. The exhibition Film as Muse explores this relationship, and presents film, video, photography, sculpture, painting, art installations and an online program. This research project has resulted in the presentation of artwork by fifteen international artists, each making a particular or peculiar reference to specific films. Film as Muse, not unlike The People’s Cinema (Salzburger Kunstverein, 2016), reflects upon creative and obsessive relationships between cinema and contemporary visual art in different manifestations. The exhibition posits itself as an initial step into researching and presenting contemporary art as it engages with cinema as its muse.

Artists: Joseph Beuys, Johanna Billing, Monica Bonvicini , Oisin Byrne, Hugo Canoilas, Loretta Fahrenholz, Anna Franceschini, Johan Grimonprez, Kristan Horton, Agnieszka Kurant, John Menick, [...]

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.

Hugo Canoilas. On the extremes of good and evil

Kapsch Contemporary Art Prize 2020. MUMOK, Vienna, 06.11.2020–20.06.2021

Hugo Canoilas. On the extremes of good and evil

Hugo Canoilas, Kapsch Contemporary Art prizewinner 2020, transforms the exhibition gallery into a walk-in stage for painting. The entire floor is laid out with cloth on which the artist has painted a scenario of interlocking flowing forms with island-like centers. The blue ground and the fantastic tentacular and colorful creatures in paint and glass look like a lively maritime landscape with unfathomable depth. In the times of the corona crisis, which has elevated social distancing to a new principle of survival, we are here drawn into an inescapable painterly biosphere that combines seduction and danger, and also the organic and technoid all in one space. This floor painting is not only a stage for viewers to experience both art and their own selves; it is also a performance space for a show developed by Elise Lammer and Julie Monot, on the invitation of the artist. In BECOMING DOG, the performers are dressed as dogs and explore new potential [...]

Hugo Canoilas: CNIDARIAN POLYPS REPAIRED BY THE EYE OF THE OBSERVER

Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Portugal, 09.10.2020–21.02.2021

Hugo Canoilas: CNIDARIAN POLYPS REPAIRED BY THE EYE OF THE OBSERVER

Specifically conceived for the Contemporary Gallery, the first ever exhibition by Hugo Canoilas (Lisbon, 1977) at the Serralves Museum is both a confirmation of, and an expansion on, some core concerns in his practice: a speculative approach to the relationship between art and reality (political and social events), a questioning of the characteristics and boundaries of painting, and an emphasis on collaborative work. Canoilas’ work has been examining the place of painting and how it is perceived both by museum visitors and passers-by (the artist is known for his public space interventions, which are never publicized as artworks). In the case of this exhibition at Serralves, Canoilas dispensed with the place where paintings are most expected to be found – the gallery walls –, and decided to intervene on spaces that are usually neglected by most painting exhibitions, namely the floor, the skirtboard and the ceiling of the Contemporary Gallery.

The floor [...]
