The two-part exhibition will be presented at Starke Foundation in Berlin-Grunewald as well as at Zentrum für Kunst und Öffentlichen Raum and Schlosspark Biesdorf. 

Participating artists:
Dominik Annies, Chen Baiyi, Janosch Becker, Florian Birk,Juan Blanco, Felipe Duarte, Shi Fu, Philipp Hainke, Lisa Herzog, Fangling Huang, Qin Lingsen, Luo Qiang, Li Quing, Ana Esteve Reig, Natalia Irina Roman, Felipe Sánchez, Liu Shihao, André Stache, Deo Gisa Brian Senyondo, Annika Stoll, Daniel Theis, Sabine Maria Voltz, Victoria Wald, Tao Xia, Yan Xiang, Ligeng Zhang

Engel Leonardo, ‘Ansapit’
Galería Formato Comodo
4 February - 31 March

Engel Leonardo’s practice performs a difficult balancing act: synthesizing Caribbean geography and visual culture without reducing its complexity. Research into the craft aesthetics of his native Dominican Republic manifests through several forms. Titled ‘Ansapit’, the Creole name for one of the four main land crossings from Haiti, the show shares the name with a dress piece whose pattern documents the popular architecture of the region. Leonardo’s Vevés paintings made with plantain juice and depicting abstracted voodoo symbols, and his Lista series, which transforms traditional basketwork found in the borderlands between the Republic and Haiti, further explore porous limits: between neighbouring countries, art and design, and high modernism and a craft vernacular.

  • Escuchar con los ojos. Arte sonoro en España, 1961-2016

The exhibition Listening with the eyes, Sound Art in Spain (1961-2016) was created thanks to the invited curators José Iges and José Luis Maire, and with the collaboration of many other artists and experts. Its aim is to show the origins, the diversity of the trajectories and the vitality of the Art Sound made in Spain since 1961.

Through the extended range of more than 400 selected works and a large documentary material, the exhibition wants to make visible (and above all audible) the sound organised with artistic criterias in Spain, even in times (during the 60's and 70's) when the proper term “Sound Art” hadn't been created yet.


Dates: October 14th, 2016 - January 15th, 2017

LOUP SARION + DANIEL BOCCATO LE GÉANT DE LA DIGUE october 1, 2016
Asphalte Charleroi


High on Place de la Digue stands the elegant outline of a figure. Sometimes it appears to be sleeping. At others, it is dancing. This sculpture, neither man nor woman, neither adult nor child, has been inspired by giants. Just as we dress up folkloric characters to suit the season, this figure transforms as the year progresses. At once a public bench, an esplanade and a family-sized picnic table, the giant is a meeting point, but it is also a collection of climbable shapes of different heights. As a deconstructed puppet, each part of the Géant de la Digue’s body is interchangeable: the hand can easily become a crown, or the leg a sword.

FORMATOCOMODO presents the performance:
TRAZAS DISTANCIADAS by MIQUEL MONT

May 31st at 9pm.«Trazas Distanciadas» (Distanced traces) is a reflection around a serie of projected images, taking the form of perfomative conference. It builds itself according to a free association between images and ideas, contrasting so with the analytic constructions of the ruling discourses and its rhetorical patterns. Privileging the sensible, the subjective -that belong to the perception as pattern and place of the knowledge’s subject-, and relating it with the economic, social and aesthetic order of our time.

Exhibition

Sound Art in Spain (1961–2016)

February 10 – May 21, 2016

The exhibition spaces: Palma, Cuenca and Madrid

Sound Art in Spain (1961–2016) traces the origins, history, diversity and vitality of the sound art produced in Spain from 1961 to the present. By means of the range and variety of works selected and extensive documentation, it purports to make visible (and, above all, audible) the ways in which sound has been employed to create artistic works in this country as far back as the 1960s and 1970s – decades before the term 'sound art' was coined to describe this phenomenon.

In addition to providing a fresh look at works from the foundation's own collection, Sound Art in Spain (1961–2016) will highlight the contributions of Zaj, Isidoro Valcárcel Medina and Lugán (Luis García Nuñez), whose pioneering experimental and cross-disciplinary works paved the way for the emergence of sound art as a genre, as well as an overview of works by a wide variety of other artists such as Walter Marchetti, Juan Muñoz, Francisco López, José Antonio Orts, Eduardo Polonio, Esther Ferrer, Juan Hidalgo, Wolf Vostell, Javier Aguirre, Nacho Criado, Francesc Abad, Eugènia Balcells and Eugeni Bonet.

Focus Bulgaria at viennacontemporary 2015 by Open Arts Foundation and Sariev Contemporary
Focus Bulgaria at viennacontemporary 2015 is the first overview of Bulgarian contemporary art at an international art fair. It consists of a thematic exhibition (curated by Iara Boubnova and Vessela Nozharova), of panel discussions and informal talks (curated by Dessislava Dimova), of historical comments on the context in the country, of quotations and explanations as well as of a publication (conceived by Boris Kostadinov).


Samuil Stoyanov's work at Focus Bulgaria is:


20 Billion Stars, 2012 Action, ceramic stars, photographs, plexiglas The present work "20 Billion Stars" is part of a series of similar boxes and uses as material photo-documentation and artefacts of action (of the same name) held by the artist for 30 days in the summer of 2011.
During the renovation of the central square of his home-town (Dobrich, Bulgaria) Samuil Stoyanov goes regularly to the work-site and casts ceramic stars from red clay in the still wet concrete. Inlaid and built up stars creates a new map of a universe, which, unfortunately, will probably remain undiscovered forever. The square named "Svoboda" (Freedom) has a total area of about 150,000 square meters, which are overlapped entirely. The funding of the reparation of "Freedom" Square is OPRD of the European Union and the action of the artist is made within the project "Art of Urban Intervention", which is supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union.

Como Tizón Quemado, CGAC, Centro Galego de arte contempóranea
Comisario/a: Alberto Carton Artista: Christian García Bello 6 marzo - 14 junio 2015

Como tizón quemado
es una agilización del proceso creativo de Christian García Bello (A Coruña, 1986) hacia la rotundidad contenida del gesto, y hacia la severidad a ultranza de un carácter en evasión concreta y ciertamente radical. Esta evasión es fidelidad hacia uno mismo, hallazgo de lo temporal que tiende y se estratifica hacia lo superior; y es atributo de la individualidad trascendente que, además de la integridad que se le exige, es también producto de la inflexión de la reflexión y su conversión en objet la materialidad tridimensional, no equívoca y, menos aun, derivativa y desinencial, en la cual refugiarse, hallarse,  y refundarse. La complexión no banal de la instalación site-specific establece una unidad lógica con el espacio (vacío, luz y ciertas perspectivas aparentes) que particulariza el medio envolvente, y lo torsiona en una sucesión de tensiones verticales y horizontales reivindicativas de una geometría pura y razonada. Y la utilización de la madera, del grafito, de la cuerda, texturiza esa armazón primaria, insistente y focal, afirmación de lo inviolable del hombre y de su unicidad sustantiva.

Justin Randolph Thompson en Itinerarios. Fundación Botín

Itinerarios is a yearly event which presents work by awardees of the Botín Foundation"s Visual Arts Grants. Year after year, it acts as a thermometer gauging the current state of the art world and it also provides a snapshot of its predominant trends.

Itinerarios XXI features works produced in 2013-2014 by nine artists: Carles Congost (Gerona, 1970), Albert Corbí (Valencia, 1976), Patricia Esquivias (Caracas, 1979), Jon Mikel Euba (Vizcaya, 1967), Rodrigo Oliveira (Portugal, 1978), Wilfredo Prieto (Cuba, 1978); Julia Spínola (Madrid, 1979), Justin Randolph Thompson (Peekskill, NY, 1979) and Jorge Yeregui (Santander, 1975).


his year"s event explores the idea of the work of art as a medium to help viewers visualize processes. Over the last few decades the idea that the relevance of an artistic process, above and beyond its exhibition, is contained in the various stages of the project and its production, as opposed to the traditional concept of finished artworks ready to be accepted and consumed, has gained strength.

Using installations, documents, images, videos and relics, the artists of Itinerarios XXI exhibit the traces of their personal research processes to create a unique and though-provoking space for visitors.

You are resting on the foundations of the company’s business − life and risk − while resting on an art piece that allows you to look at great works by Tatsuo Miyajima and Olafur Eliasson.

http://www.artatswissre.com/flash/index.cfm



Two shiny lacquered chairs, one black, one white, face the glass fronted alcoves that look onto the central lift shaft of our Zurich headquarters. Commissioned especially for the space (to mark our 150th anniversary in 2013), the back frame of each chair incorporates a four letter word. One reads RISK, the other LIFE, reflecting our core business. Therefore, for the audience, ie our employees, Roldán chose a form that is double coded. As chairs, her work can be easily used: “You are resting on the foundations of the company’s business − life and risk − while resting on an art piece that allows you to look at great works by Tatsuo Miyajima and Olafur Eliasson. I wanted to invite people to sit in these specific balconies to contemplate the art pieces”. “Of course”, says Ana Roldán, “there are more complex ways to read the piece. While sitting on it, you can’t see it while you perceive other art pieces. Its visual disappearance is the condition of art contemplation.” It is a sculpture that pretends to be a chair, whose backrest is a sculpture of a word written in a typography Roldán developed.

Mora rebels against the tyranny of painting’s vertical plane and reinstalls it in the horizontal and transverse. At the same time, this new representation produces another novelty: from liquid to solid, from disconnected letters with which the artist builds a discourse, to a story completed in one fell swoop, done in one stroke, proving that the medium is reinvented, that painting always has something new to say in the artist’s expression. From small scale to the largest, with no apparent inbetween, gigantism is part of Mora’s new work, introducing architecture as the third element that joins painting and sculpture, and in which the building that houses this exhibition takes on special relevance. The artist goes on to describe: “Given that my idea to raise a plane of paint off of the floor and make it float is impossible (simply due to the law of gravity), this should be secured in some way by the architecture that surrounds it. And if it were the architecture of the space itself that contained the work? In the same way that I have been working for years with different systems that contain paint, this new project will use the architecture not only as a container but also as an activator of the piece. The walls and columns of Tabacalera can contain the plane of paint, secure it. In the same way that the wall has always supported painting, the architecture will give me the chance to be able to support a pictorial plane. Embed it within, forcefully boxing it in, the plane of paint can be supported and contained in the space and give it a sense of active exhibition.” The artist is fascinated by the perception and comprehension of painting, to the point of taking it to the limits of its context, converting it not into medium but into the message itself, into essence of expression, into something so literal that it takes on an extraordinary physical force, almost paranormal, forming part of the exhibit halls of Tabacalera.

Eight extraordinary spatial questions.
Common Features / Extraordinary Differences There is no common theme in this exhibit, but a Project of inquiry into the space as a creative challenge for the artists. To transcend the limits between installation, sculpture, painting, photography and any other artistic medium. To transcend the political and the poetic, the social and the domestic. The participating artists in “Eight Extraordinary Spatial Questions” are interested in the analytical confrontation of the exhibit space with their work, and are able to convert a given space into a mental space. They attempt to understand, with more or less effort, the spatial dimension that we inhabit. They are interested in investigating that intense relationship between the space and how it is occupied/unoccupied. They have a trained eye for spatial situations, a capacity to reinterpret and change the meaning of certain places.

All the things that are not there
“All the things that are not there” is an audiovisual project based on the work of an American engineer called Harold Edgerton. Edgerton is the inventor of the strobe light, the underwater photography and the camera used to record the first developments of the atomic bombs.
The work is based on recordings of a road trip through the USA visiting different spaces related to Edgerton. As the entrance to these places are forbidden in most of the cases, the work has been completed with fictional reconstructions of themselves.

a project by Samuil Stoyanov

Samuil Stoyanov's site-specific space portraits series started with the Geocidite building in Belgrade where the 53rd October Salon took place in 2012. To study these modernist spaces of display and presentation, the artist first destabilizes the light, the fixed element of every space as such. Through these portraits every building he interacts with becomes a part of Stoyanov's artistic cosmos. In a gesture of hurling a light bulb above his head making the largest possible circle, Stoyanov, in his own words, makes reference to the movement of the space objects in the universe. Here the figure of the artist appears not only as a pseudo-scientist conducting inventive experiments but also as a black hole holding all the centrifugal movement in an orbit around him. The artist chose the Natural Museum of History in Sofia for the venue of his first-time such experiment in Bulgaria of a site-specific portrait as museum is a classic display place for geological history.

ON PAINTING

[prácticas pictóricas actuales... más allá de la Pintura o más acá]
Curated by Omar-Pascual Castillo
Opening 1st march 8:30 pm.

The first exhibition devoted to curatorial thesis proposal of the new artistic director of CAAM, take all the inside and outside museum space, receiving more than a dozen site-specific interventions in facades, patios, terraces and walls of the building, as well as relevant works on loan from more than ten private and institutional collections from Latin American pictorial context; territory where language and painting-as-art form has prevailed.


ON PAINTING is an ambitious exhibition project and reflection in which the painting is conceived, rather than as a genre of art, as a methodology, as a language.

In this research, the show is based in four general ideo-aesthetic lines from which to approach programmatic changes in last century pictorial practise and beginning of present one:

◦COLOR SPLASH AND MATERIALS: new abstract experiences


◦BITTER TASTE, THE NAUSEA: The return of Acid Painting


◦POST-HISPANIC Narratives: New narrative in the Age of the Image


◦TUTTO REVOLUTO… From NEO-BAROQUE to the Era of Promiscuity


Knowing then that is always an exhibition project for an exhibition space (CAAM), under these four symptoms we gather together 66 artists from countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Costa Rica, Haiti, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, Surinam, Venezuela and Spain. And guests from the Philippines and United States.

The project will be accompanied by a theoretical event. Moreover, the CAAM will edit a publication with contributions of guest figures such as Barry Schwabsky, Kevin Power, Octavio Zaya and Omar-Pascual Castillo.

She has a constant will of transformation to point out the processes in the materials.
In some of the works she propose the use of ¨global objects¨, objects purchased in world
wide chain stores, to manipulate, arrange their parts in different ways and create new
opinions about everyday life circumstances. The instruction manuals of these objects are
also used to open new windows to see transformations on paper

ICEBERG. The context as starting point
TERESA S, ABBOUD.
In this work different photographs taken by tourists at Los Gigantes beach, in Tenerife, are projected. The portaits of the tourists remain focused on the small screen, while the seascape, stays unfocused in the back.

The context is developed through a succession of actions occurring in a given space and time. The result is something unique and unrepeatable.
 
ICEBERG #1 is a project that has been developed through an exhibition accompanied by a publication, which seeks to propose a reflection on the current context of Madrid through the work of 17 artists, who share a space and time.
ICEBERG #1 has been conceived as a starting point from which to begin a critical dialogue.
 
It plays with the characteristics of an iceberg as something that is constantly moving whilst only having a small part of its total volume visible. This project aims to bring together fragments of artistic practices in Madrid, where diverse characteristics are generated within similar circumstances. An iceberg is also impossible to map, as is the overall art scene of the city.
 
This project is not intended to define the art scene through a selection of artists, but only to think about the foundations of our current context. The artists in this show have been brought together in the interest of focusing on diverse points of action that converge into the same panorama and to highlight the links and connections in the work of:  Julio Adán, Elena Alonso, Irene de Andrés, Ignacio Bautista, Ignacio Chávarri, José Díaz, Carlos Fernández-Pello, Theo Firmo, Cristina Garrido, Karlos Gil, Cristina Llanos, Almudena Lobera, Nacho Martín Silva, Alfredo Rodríguez, Teresa Solar, Luis Vassallo and Françoise Vanneraud that produce the aforementioned context.

Kindel Joaquin Palace (Madrid 1905) considered photography as the result of the artist's eye that fired his machine when he saw something he liked, he was more interested in the light of the image photographed scenes themselves.
"It's a matter of looking and shoot when you like something so special, no more mystery. Light is very important, as in painting. The technique is the least "
Kindel offers in secret that which does not display and offers us a secret hidden beauty and wondrous than anyone knows and stays in adversity.

SISTEMA METRICO. From 18 of march to 22 of may
The project reflects on how common it has become to read or hear references to sports playing fields for measuring large surface areas in the mass media. But what are the real dimensions of a football pitch? Different people use their own methods to measure surfaces: they make reference to everyday objects that maintain no relation with the established decimal metric system.  This time, Ikenaga measures the area, the perimeter, the height and the volume of the Abierto X Obras space, using a football pitch, a person, a pile of furniture and smoke machines as references, so that one might appreciate the magnitude of private space surrounding us.
